Ecumenical Sarcasm

Q: Okay, Catholics, are we so deceived?

So we have been deceived for 2000 years. Yes, that’s it! God’s deceived us for 2,000 years! After the Apostles, BAM! ALL LIES.
A: Lets see now …

Jesus gets himself crucified … dies … is buried … rises from the dead … personally establishes his Church … promises to bless it and keep it forever … with all his divine power and might … and it lasts only about 40 years.

Lights out! Over. Done.

Then he makes the world wait 1500 years for the “true faith” to be invented by a bunch of guys whom he never trained, and who never even knew him.

But wait … in the mean time … his original “failed” Church … the Catholic Church … somehow manages to overcome hundreds of years of brutal persecution … faithfully preserve all his divine truth … and successfully convert most of the known world to Christianity.

What kind of failure is that?

Is God confused … or is it those guys who showed up 1500 years late … equipped with nothing except a borrowed holy book … a book whose meaning they haven’t yet been able to understand … or agree on?

What did Jesus REALLY mean when he said this?:

Mat 28:18 And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.
Mat 28:19 Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.

Is Jesus God … or is he a powerless liar?

Why doesn’t Jesus heal the blind, deaf and crippled anymore?

Q: Why doesn’t Jesus heal the blind, deaf and crippled anymore?

I mean if you know Jesus personally it shouldn’t be that much of a problem if you asked? You believe he’s alive and is answering your prayers, and he’s the same as in the bible. Shouldn’t be that big a deal right?
A: In the early days of the Church, the power of the Holy Spirit was consolidated in a relatively small number of faithful, who were also completely united in faith and in practice.

Miracles were as common as dirt, back then.

Ever since, the Church has suffered numerous injuries to unity and fidelity, and many of those who govern and lead the Church have become either confused or corrupt.

Hence, while miracles may still be observed, they are no longer routine, and even when they occur, many do not believe.
