Today’s “Gem” from Bob Stanley’s “The Catholic Treasure Chest”:  Perfect examples of the pick and choose mentality of non-Catholic faith communities.

Show me in Scripture?

  1. The word trinity.
  2. The definition of the trinity.
  3. The word incarnation.
  4. The Nicene Creed.
  5. The Hypostatic Union.
  6. That Jesus Christ is one person with two natures.
  7. The Holy Spirit is consubstantial with the Father and the Son.
  8. The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.
  9. The marriage ceremony.
  10. The Canon of the Old Testament.
  11. The Canon of the New Testament.
  12. Your Bible.

What? You can’t find the answers to these twelve examples in Scripture? But many of the non Catholic ecclesial communities teach these same doctrines. How could they do this if the answers are not to be found in the Bible?

The answer to “From Where Did These Truths Originate?”, is that they all are the product of decisions made by the Catholic Church. They may not be explicit in Holy Scripture, but they certainly are implicit. They are perfect examples of the Holy Spirit teaching all the truth to the Church which Jesus Christ founded.

“If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you forever, the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you.”
John 14:15-17

Notice that the Spirit of Truth will FOREVER be with the Church that Jesus founded.
