A harbinger of things to come

Hi friend and neighbor. After all, what are a few thousand miles between pals?

Image result for you don't know jack

Received a rather unusual comment that has given birth to a soon repost of some things I wrote three years ago. I have never been accused of misappropriating scripture from a Romanist, since Catholics in general rely on their leaders to tell them what scripture says. But here it is:

Your demonstrated lack of understanding of holy scripture is evident to everyone, it seems but yourself.

Evident to EVERYONE? Really? Now if that were true, it would be a tragedy of course. But it is this kind of broad generalization that gets people into trouble, for I’m guessing not EVERYONE thinks I am a biblical dunce.  So imagine my chagrin to be so dubbed as ‘clueless’ or void of understanding regarding things in particular that I find endearing. Ouch. Wounded in the house of my friends.

Anyway, just a heads up, I will be presenting a set of posts all covering the same theme; it will become obvious, and I’m asking a small favor to my thoughtful and faithful friends. Read without bias, and see if:

1. the scriptures are honored

2. the scriptures are handled accurately

3. Christ is elevated

4. what I say is good, decent, and true

But why mention a ‘post to come?’ Because we are entirely too fond of believing things at the expense of other things, and have fallen prey to seductive teachings which are put forth as gospel. I’m asking you to consider WHY you believe this or that, and ask yourself if you have been persuaded of doctrines inconsistent with God’s entire word. God is not in the business of tricking us, but man oh man can we deceive ourselves.

I read these posts in their entirety, and it appears I could have written them this morning. If you find them helpful, thank God. If you find them caustic, please do not confuse the truth of scripture with imaginative opinions. I believe there is a cohesion and consistency that a thousand popes could not fault, so be careful if you agree that I am an incompetent handler of God’s word.

But after reading, do comment. Have a voice. Cast your vote.  Decide if what I say is true, even at the expense of what is religiously popular. Yes, it is an electric issue, highly charged, but one that reasonable people should engage and have a say.

But keep in mind, the incomparable Paul the apostle did write: ‘have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?’ There is therefore a price to pay for aligning with truth. What price we pay depends on our personal currency, but if I am wrong about the assertions, do tell. And please do not present extra biblical ideas that have superceded God’s word, for they will be refused and pointed out quicker than you can say Nicodemas.

(Those of you who have read my stuff know I am not looking for sympathy votes. I am not looking for flattery. I am presenting the unvarnished truth regarding a topic that has held people in the clutches of superstition for years, and I am not afraid to do so. And let’s get the word ‘heretic’ out of the way right now, as some may suggest)

    I think that’s a pretty broad generalization about Catholics. There are many verses in the bible that are interpreted differently but it doesn’t make anybody wrong. If someone has the time to tell you that you don’t know what you’re talking about I try and not take offense to that. I always have enjoyed reading your blog, even when I don’t agree with you.

    Blessings my friend from your neighborhood Catholic girl 😊

      Hi M-
      Yep, it is a generalization, I believe I said as much up top. But I believe I have the support of experience and observation knowing thousands of Catholics to say such a thing.

      The thrust of the posts is not about things that are obscure and subject to interpretation, but rather things that are clear, and where there should be full agreement.

      We both know there is this thing called liberty, and grace, but things that are crystal clear should not be traded for the ransacking of scripture.

      That said, I have made careful note to express many Catholics are finer believers that many a Baptist, but the posts are solely devoted to what is plainly taught in scripture.

      And believe me, I do not take offense at being ridiculed. It is God’s word, not mine.

        I think Melissa may have a point. When we make an observation, the data may be perfectly correct, but that does not mean our interpretation is correct.

        Each Christian sect formed for different reason, but what binds each sect is a similar understanding of appropriate doctrine. Catholic theology actually has a specific role for the Catholic priesthood. Catholic lay people generally expect a high degree of theological expertise from the priesthood, the cardinals and the pope, in particular. Hence, when Catholics defer to priests, that does not mean they don’t have an opinion or that they won’t express it. However, as Melissa demonstrated, they sometimes have to be a bit provoked.

          She has always been fair minded I agree. I have also said that many Catholics put many Protestants to shame, and vice versa. No one sect has the drop on all of scripture.

          I would differentiate however on things that are without compromise as opposed to things in which we obviously have liberty, and holding fast things we have been taught comes with a price.

          Too many people confuse confidence in the living God with arrogance, but it is the truth of God which supplies the confidence, after all Paul did say: in me dwelleth no good thing, and we certainlyy know he was confident in the major doctrines of the faith.

          It is exactly this regard that will be dealt with on a topic that has always been a source for grief and ecstasy.

        What good are you if all you can do is pick and choose what you want and then aggrandize yourself by impressing others of your great wisdom?

        Even the atheist does that.

        • Isaiah,

          I am speaking from my own experience.

          I came to maturity in the late 1960′ and early 1970’s when all the atheist, anti-Christian propaganda hit the mainstream big time.

          I was a dedicated, practicing Catholic, but as is typical with young people I began to question my faith, my politics, my values.

          And there was absolutely no response except the impatient guffaws from all the intolerant, impatient Wally’s and Tricia’s.

          Truth to tell, all those Wally’s and Tricia’s were simply ignorant.

          They had simply never questioned their faith enough to learn much about it.

          I was away from the Church for 28 years until an Irish priest pointed the way to the answers I sought.

          And as I got deeper and deeper into it, I began not only studying Christianity, but also the history of Western Civilization, the Roman and Greek cultures, the Christian Middle Ages, the science and political philosophy of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment, Natural Law theory, Marxism and Progressivism.

          Finally, I began to gain an understanding of how Christianity took 2500 years of European and Near Eastern culture and wove it into Christian Western Civilization, the greatest civilization in human history.

          Yet, I have read your misbegotten claim that it was a mistake for the Catholics of Antiquity and the Christian Middle Ages to have integrated the pagan world into Christianity.

          I have as much trouble with such erroneous thinking from Christians as I do from atheists and other brands of leftists.

          Silence of Mind. No one, neither Tricia nor I have been impatient with or guffawed at you. The heinous offense we have committed is to disagree with you or to think that God’s Holy Word might carry more weight than your much bally hooed classical education.

          Remarks like “team Jesus.” and accusing other Christians of being atheists do nothing to create any credibility whatsoever. In fact, since you have apparently chosen Tricia and I as the ones who have caused you the most grief, and apparently in the past caused you to lose faith…your remind me of somebody else LOL.

          Looking at the dialogue further down I think I see the problem. Worry. Are you are a bit too anxious that we Christians have failed to save the world from Atheists? It does not depend upon us. What we are challenged to do is to spread the Gospel. Jesus saves, not us. What will happen is what God ordains. Romans 8:28.

          Consider that Wally and Tricia have their own callings and their own testimony. Their testimony is what some who do not believe need to hear.

          In His own way, God uses each of us to execute Romans 8:28, even Atheists. What matters is whether we are among those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. And that is an individual choice. Unless someone chooses for God, there is not much we can do. All we can do is live good lives that glorify our Savior and spread the Gospel as best we understand it.

          We are each called to play the part God has assigned to us. Through fellowship we can help and strengthen each other, but every Christian is responsible to Jesus, not another Christian. We don’t have the wisdom to judge each other.

          You also have something to teach. You also have an example to set. Please do.

Was it not in thy name that we performed many miracles? 23 Whereupon I will tell them openly, You were never friends of mine; depart from me, you that traffic in wrong-doing.”

      They have judged atheists unworthy of the Word of God and simply refuse to waste their time.

      The dummy needs to learn science and simple reasoning because that is the ground that atheists lay claim to.

      After making the argument for the existence of God from the standpoint of science and simple reasoning, it becomes abundantly clear that the atheist claim to science and simple reason is a lie.

          If you only knew the remarkable restraint I have showed you here, on this thread. I’m pretty sure others agree.

          Your comment here is so full of holes, I won’t even address it. Why?

          Because you are guilty of what many of your opponents do. Namely, steer a post into the weeds.

          Take some counsel will you. Once more, this post is an introduction to the next five, and it appears by your own behavior, you are not ready to receive them.

          Btw, you know dman right well,I have supported you in other hostile environments, at your place, here, as I saw fit, so please stop your petty gripes and your insulting towards very good people, who may actually know more of God’s word than you. just sayin. As I said, restraint.

          People like mike, pete, etc, watch from afar and enjoy how believers gnash their teeth.

          I differentiate, and at lest give people the courtesy of believing. I do not care about denominations, as they are all right, and all wrong, still, God is gracious in our wrongness.

          At least we all see a battle worthy of engagement; it’s just the target that’s the thing…

          cs, you’re right. tom does seem like a good person. his question “you tell me, hurts does it not?” coming so close to an anon person posting my personal information without my permission was a bit too coincidental seeing as he lives just one or two towns away from where the IP adress is from.
          if i have assumed too much, and simply asked a question for possible confirmation, and offended… i can apologize if i in fact am wrong. tom can clear this up quickly and i would be happy to apologize. thx cs.

          Mike? Some nefarious plot? He knows me so well he had to ask what state I live in. Why would he bother?

          Oh, well. Hopefully it is just amusing. Thanks for the heads up.

          All I did was chastise you for making fun of some of your fellow bloggers. When we start doing that our discussions get nasty.

          I don’t know anymore about you than it appears you know about me. I certainly don’t have any designs to harm you, and it puzzles me why you think I would. You asked where I live? Since the area I live is posted prominently on my blog, where I live is not exactly a secret.

          Now it appears CS suggested you are up to something, and you admitted as much. So far I have not seen anything on your web site, but I have not spent much effort looking. Mostly what I find there is too pointlessly disagreeable, and the Bible suggest we devote our thoughts to what is good. So there is not much point in spending lots of time on an apostate’s blog.

          You don’t like Christians and Christianity? There is no law that says you must, but what do you love? What do you care about? What do you stand for? What beliefs will you give your life to advocate? Instead of tearing down what other people are trying to build up, why can you devote your blog to something positive? Except for you, who is stopping you?

          So Tom, if you’re telling me that it wasn’t you who tried to post anonymously on my blog my personal info, then I’ll believe you. That’s what that was about. I apologize if I was wrong.

          I was not trying to tell you anything. I did not even know what you thought I had done.

          I don’t know who are. So long as you don’t do anything illegal or libel somebody, I don’t care.

          On the Internet, I would suggest you never assume you are truly anonymous. There is a logical trail back from whatever you post to your computer.

          Is that the recommended procedure for responding to a baseless accusation?

          How many people have you needlessly pissed off? Do you know? Is the number so large you have no idea who posted your personal information? If someone knows who you are, and they want to post it, you may as well stop panicking and just get use to it. There is nothing you can do about it.

          You may as put your life in God’s Hands. Is it going to safe in anyone else’s hands? Has it been safe in your own?
