The Church over the Abyss

In a recent interview with the Neapolitan newspaper Il Mattino, Pope Francis offered an expansive prescription for the human race. “Planetary injustice,” centered around climate change and Third World debt, must be the focus of the Church, he explained, adding that politics is the “highest form of charity.” Saying that “everything is connected,” the Pope sounded like he was channeling the latest New Age woo-woo philosophy—which in a sense, he is. The Catholic church was once the greatest conservative institution in the West, and not in any narrow sense of the term. In her self-understanding she was the guardian of the apostolic inheritance, the natural moral law, and an understanding

No offense, but the Roman Catholic Church is not "The Church". The Church is like a mansion with many rooms and the RC Church is but one of them.

He would never have been Pope unless there was a majority of cardinals that voted for him after those same cardinals had convinced Benedict it was time to leave "or else". Make of it what you will.

The Catholic Church has survived heresies, schisms, multiple popes, the Borgia popes and the Reformation. We will survive the Argentinian. Jesus Christ founded His Church with the promise that the gates of Hell would not prevail against her. He did not promise that that smoke of Satan would not infiltrate. My favorite all-time priest, a convert from Judaism, once said his proof of the truth of Catholicism was that the Faith endured because of the laity despite the clergy. There is the earthly church and there is the Holy Catholic Church in which the effect of the Sacraments are real and lasting; the greatest of which is the Eucharist, the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ made available to us through the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and kept reserved for Adoration within His golden tabernacle in every Catholic Church. It matters not who occupies the Chair of Peter, or who holds a bishops staff, the reality of the Eucharist is not affected. The reality of any of the other Sacraments; Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation (confession), Matrimony, Holy Orders, Anointing of the Sick (Last Rites) are not affected by earthly corruption of any prelate. Christ knew He was entrusting His Church to fallible men and that is why the Holy Spirit came upon the Apostles and the Blessed Mother in the upper room on Pentecost Sunday. Satan may take some consecrated souls, but he will not take His Holy Bride, the Church. Be faithful until the end. Keep your lamp filled with oil. Be ready when the Bridegroom comes. AMDG

"The Church", the bride of Christ, has nothing to do with "the pope", whoever that may be. They are political heads, and have been for well over 1000 years. They are the 'whited sepulchers'. The spiritual head of the Church is the holy spirit. Francis never met that entity. He is an arm and voice of . . . well, it ain't God.

The Protestant Reformation identified, in 5 principles, the necessary doctrines of a true Christian faith, to keep the church from drifting into error: Sola Scriptura - Scripture ALONE is the place to find ultimate truth (with other sources subservient to Scripture). No papal edicts or any human-inspired rule trump Scripture. Sola Gracia - Grace ALONE, granted mercifully by God, is to only route to having peace with God. The forgiveness granted by a human priest is not sufficient. Sola Fide - Faith ALONE is the only way to have the righteousness of Christ - the ONLY righteousness acceptable to God - imputed to man. No works of man, or prayers to dead "saints", can replace faith as our righteousness before God. Sola Christus - Christ ALONE is the only mediator between God and man. No Mary; no saint; no pope; no confessional. Soli Deo' Gloria - To the Glory of God ALONE. God will not share His Glory due to Him with any creature, or creaturely organization.

As a Roman Catholic, I say God bless #14 and all Protestants. One little problem I have with Sola Scriptura is: it's not in the Bible. The Doctrine of Sola Scriptura is not in the Scriptures. Think about that. As to Christ being the only mediator between God and man, Jesus was certainly the only one who was both God and man. But was Moses a mediator between God and man? I'm not a religious expert, and I do welcome intelligent answers to that question.

#17 - Thank you for your response. Even though the words SCRIPTURE ONLY is not in the Bible, there are plenty of references that indicate this truth: "All Scripture is breathed out by God" - 2 Timothy 3:16; "And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s own interpretation. For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God las they were carried along by the Holy Spirit". - 2 Peter 1:19-21; Jesus referred to the Scriptures, not oral tradition, being the only source of authority in texts such as Matthew 4:1-11, Matthew 12: 3, 5, 42. Paul, instructing the Corinthians, not to go beyond Scripture, says: "I have applied all these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, brothers, that you may learn by us not to go beyond what is written, that none of you may be puffed up in favor of one against another." Don't go beyond "WHAT IS WRITTEN". As for Moses being a mediator, he was a type of the mediator to come, Jesus Christ. "Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son." Hebrews 3:5; "For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time."1 Timothy 2:5-6 I hope this wasn't too lengthy a response, but your questions deserved clear answers. Blessings!

I was born in 1955 and raised in a Catholic family. As a 10-13 year old, I recognized that something was seriously wrong in the mid-to-late 1960's when the radical leftist 'Berrigan Brothers' priests joined the pro-Communist protests and suffered no punishment from the church administration. Up to that time, I had believed that the Church was working for God, and the Communists were Evil. As time went on, I became more and more dis-enamored by all the bureaucratic nonsense spouted by the church. The phrase "Apostolic Administrator" sticks in my memory to this day. When the pedophile priests scandals started coming to light, one after another, after another, and I realized that this was not an individual 'rotten apple' here and there, but that the church administration, instead of kicking these monsters out, was instead hiding these monsters, shielding them from public view, and moving them from places where they had been exposed to unspoiled parishes where they could (and did) continue to prey on innocent children with decent, unsuspecting parents..... I knew it was time to walk away. These days, with the corrupting, pervert-supporting actions of today's pope, and the activities of the 'Catholic Charities' organization which is apparently doing a lucrative business contracting with the Biden administration in trafficking illegal aliens who have entered the US, I believe that I made the right choice. Although a very long way from perfect myself, with a range of faults and failings, I cannot support the organization that the catholic church has become. They claim to be The Moral Authority, but they seems now to be more a force for evil than for good. Tempering this is that, in my limited contact and experience, there seem to be a good percentage of parish priests who are good, decent people, trying to do good..... but it seems to me that the 'hierarchy', the bureaucracy, is badly rotted. Today I consider myself a Christian..... but a catholic? It seems that the church has left me, and left the values that it held when I was young.

I was taught that "The Church" was All Christians - regardless of denomination. I'm Missouri Synod Lutheran and I believe that ALL Christians are "The Church on Earth." . I look to Holy Scripture - Sola Scriptura. My brothers and sisters in Christ belong to many church denominations and we all are The Church.

McCarthy says Biden dragging his feet
on debt ceiling: ‘They want a default

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Thursday blamed President Biden for the lack of progress so far in a deal that would allow the government to borrow more money once it hits the debt ceiling in early June. Biden, McCarthy and other congressional leaders were scheduled to meet on Friday to talk about a possible deal to increase the borrowing limit and meet the GOP demand of reducing federal spending. But that meeting was pushed until next week, and McCarthy said the delay is because the White House isn't budging. "I have not seen from there a seriousness of the White House that they want a deal," McCarthy told reporters Thursday.

Chairman James Comer and his dogged Republican colleagues on the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability made history this week. They came forward with factual evidence against President Biden and his extended family that make President Richard Nixon’s Watergate investigation and President Bill Clinton’s Whitewater investigation look like traffic infractions by comparison. If there was ever a doubt, it’s clear now that a thin five-seat majority in the House can make an enormous difference in the fight for transparency and integrity at the highest levels of government in Washington, D.C.

The sheer magnitude of Biden family corruption uncovered by the House Oversight Committee can only be described as breathtaking. It is also deeply alarming. If the fruits of Chairman James Comer’s investigation are exactly what they appear to be, Joe Biden may have jeopardized our nation’s security by selling out America for cold hard cash. Documents show that over $10 million in foreign money flowed like a river into more than 20 shell companies and LLCs created for the Bidens’ financial benefit, said Comer. Much of it was then surreptitiously shuffled around various accounts before it landed in the hands of nine members of the president’s family.

For most Western people today, the word culture conjures at best superficial differences — "exotic" dress or food.
