Making the mistake of confusing Jesus with the people inside of the Church

And that brings us to the point. Like the guy in the “I hate religion but love Jesus” video, I was making the mistake of confusing Jesus with the people inside of the Church. And this is, in a nutshell, the main problem with post-Vatican II Catholicism AND Protestantism in all its forms. BOTH – because the Novus Ordo milieu and so-called “spirit of the Council” is simply the Protestantization of the Church and the Liturgy.  And since Protestantism is a heresy, and leads inevitably to atheism (Look around, kids.  What exactly do you think is happening?  You have a front-row seat to the five-centuries coming culmination of Luther’s heresy.), the Novus Ordo WILL die, if not by the Arm of Justice, then by its own built-in suicide mechanism.

What is going on in these liturgies and services is NOT the worship of God. What is going on is the WORSHIP OF THE GROUP. Christ is merely the meme, or excuse, that these people are using in order to get together and WORSHIP THEMSELVES. The focus is ENTIRELY on the people.

Peter Kreeft on what we know for sure about apples … and abortion!

I will try to prove the simple, common-sensical reasonableness of the pro-life case by a sort of Socratic logic. My conclusion is that Roe v. Wade must be overturned, and my fundamental reason for this is not only because of what abortion is but because we all know what abortion is.

This is obviously a controversial conclusion, and initially unacceptable to all pro-choicers. So, my starting point must be noncontroversial. It is this:

We know what an apple is. I will try to persuade you that if we know what an apple is, Roe v. Wade must be overthrown, and that if you want to defend Roe, you will probably want to deny that we know what an apple is.

Christians, why are the chosen people (Israelites) not blessed as the Bible claim them to be?

Q: Christians, why are the chosen people (Israelites) not blessed as the Bible claim them to be?

God said that the Israelites are so blessed and blah blah blah… but what we see today is somewhat different isn’t it? With all the war and stuff going on there.

A: God repeatedly saved the Israelites from destruction, and God uniquely blessed the Israelites by first sending his only begotten son Jesus, to them.

You can’t do any better than that.

They blew it. That’s all. But it doesn’t have to be that way forever.

Today, the spiritual dynamics are different, and the universal sacrament of salvation is the Holy Catholic Church.

Of course, everyone (Jew and Gentile alike) is welcome to freely partake of all God’s blessings, through that same universal, New Covenant Church that Jesus paid for with his own blood, and that he personally founded, authorized, empowered, and eternally guaranteed, for the purpose of our salvation.
