Public Sin of Manifest Formal Heresy

This page is dedicated to posts I have published related to the following true proposition:

The public sin of manifest formal heresy per se separates the heretic from the Church.

Public = exposed to general view

Manifest = perceivable and apprehendable

Formal = pertinacious

Heresy = a proposition that directly contradicts a teaching of the Church which must be believed with Divine and Catholic Faith.

Per se = by its very nature

Heretic = a baptized person claiming to be Christian who pertinaciously denies or doubts a teaching of the Church which must be believed with Divine and Catholic Faith.

One who knowingly, consciously, and willingly publicly asserts a proposition that is in direct contradiction to a Church teaching that must be believed with Divine and Catholic Faith separates himself from the Church by that very fact.

One who knowingly, consciously, and willingly publicly denies or doubts a Church teaching that must be believed with Divine and Catholic Faith separates himself from the Church by that very fact.
