A few of our readers have asked us about a new sedevacantist newspaper called Four Marks. This newspaper is run by a woman and a block of heretical contributors who are adamant supporters of baptism of desire and groups which believe that souls can be saved in false religions (or accept as Catholic those who do). A reader of ours wrote to K. Plumb, the editor of this newspaper, to ask her about the salvation issue and our material. On May 30, this reader forwarded Plumb’s reply to us, which included:
“Br. Dimond hasn’t contacted me, and although I am impressed by his efforts and knowledge, it is much like a Baptist who knows his chapter and verse, but not what the Bible says.”
So, a few weeks ago the editor of Four Marks compared one of us to a Baptist for our adherence to the necessity of the Catholic Faith and water baptism for salvation. She also indicated in the same e-mail that “another article planned on this topic [the baptism of desire issue] (by another writer) is scheduled for the July issue. There are other articles on this same topic that we may reprint. That is being discussed.” So, she was planning on printing another attack on baptism by one of her stable of heretical writers in July, which almost surely would have included the typical distortions, half-truths, omissions, etc., etc. that characterize the works of the salvation heretics.
Well, K. Plumb won’t be printing that attack on baptism in the July issue. She and her husband were just involved in a serious car accident, which left her with broken bones and her husband on life support. According to the family, “there will, undoubtedly, be a delay on the paper.” Hopefully it’s a permanent delay. Is it just a coincidence that this very serious car accident occurred just prior to the publication of the July issue, in which she planned to again attack the necessity of baptism and further spread the snare of salvation heresy? We think not. People need to realize that God detests such phonies and what they do. God desires their conversion, but those heretics who think they are traditional Catholics while they attack the necessity of baptism and Fr. Feeney, and while they endorse all kinds of groups which believe in salvation for members of non-Catholic religions, are phony abominations. And that’s exactly the kind of heretic that runs and contributes to this new heretical newspaper, which Catholics should shun if it ever gets back up and running.
