God to blame?

 

The Knight of Tradition’s response to Bishop Lynch’s absurd accusations against Christ and His Church:

 

Bishop Robert Lynch of the diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, posted the following on his blog regarding the mass shooting incident in Orlando, FL:

ORLANDO, ORLANDO WE LOVE YOU

Today I write with a heavy heart arising from the tragedy which occurred in the early morning hours yesterday at a Gay, Lesbian, Transgender night club in Orlando, our neighbor to the east. Yesterday, the best I could muster was to send these words by text message to my brother, Bishop John Noonan, bishop of Orlando: “John, I am so sorry. With love to and for all.” Today with a new dawn, I once again have some thoughts which I wish to share.

Our founding parents had no knowledge of assault rifles which are intended to be weapons of mass destruction. In crafting the second amendment to the Constitution which I affirm, they thought only of the most awkward of pistols and heavy shotguns. I suspect they are turning in their graves if they can but glimpse at what their words now protect. It is long past time to ban the sale of all assault weapons whose use should be available only to the armed forces. If one is truly pro-life, then embrace this issue also and work for the elimination of sales to those who would turn them on innocents.

Second, sadly it is religion, including our own, which targets, mostly verbally, and also often breeds contempt for gays, lesbians and transgender people. Attacks today on LGBT men and women often plant the seed of contempt, then hatred, which can ultimately lead to violence. Those women and men who were mowed down early yesterday morning were all made in the image and likeness of God. We teach that. We should believe that. We must stand for that. Without yet knowing who perpetrated the PULSE mass murders, when I saw the Imam come forward at a press conference yesterday morning, I knew that somewhere in the story there would be a search to find religious roots. While deranged people do senseless things, all of us observe, judge and act from some kind of religious background. Singling out people for victimization because of their religion, their sexual orientation, their nationality must be offensive to God’s ears. It has to stop also.

Third, responding by barring people of Muslim only faith from entering the country solely because of their stated faith until they can be checked out is un-American, even in these most challenging of times and situations. There are as many good, peace loving and God fearing Muslims to be found as Catholics or Methodists or Mormons or Seventh Day Adventists. The devil and devilish intent escape no religious iteration.

Will we ever learn? I hope so but until the above three points are taken seriously by society, sadly, tragically, we can expect more Orlandos. May the souls of those faithful departed who met their God early Sunday morning rest in peace, and those recovering from deep wounds heal, help and hope.

Well, to begin with, Dr. Thomas D. Williams writing for the politically conservative American website Breitbart.com, notes that “the bishop made no attempt to explain how a 29-year-old Muslim who never stepped foot in a Catholic Church would have been motivated to carry out his deed by a supposed Catholic “contempt” for homosexuality.”  What a truly unbelievable statement from a successor of the Apostles!  To say that our Catholic Faith shoulders much of the blame for this incident since it “targets” and “breeds contempt” for these “LGBT” individuals!  This is not to dismiss the rest of the letter, which reads much more like a political commentary from Hillary Clinton than it does as a letter from a bishop to his faithful.  This Bishop is using his position given to him by the Church to criticize the Catholic Faith itself, a lack of proper gun control, and Donald Trump’s proposal on Muslims entering the U.S., rather than the true evils present in this anti-Christ society.  What kind of a message does this convey to Catholic Faithful everywhere, especially those in St. Petersburg?

I will mainly focus on the statement regarding our Catholic Faith.  I suspect this post might attract many visitors from Google searches and the like, so a few quotes are in order.  First, a few quotes on the Church’s teaching rearding the sin of Sodomy:

St. John Chrysostom: “But if thou scoffest at hearing of hell and believest not that fire, remember Sodom. For we have seen, surely we have seen, even in this present life, a semblance of hell. For since many would utterly disbelieve the things to come after the resurrection, hearing now of an unquenchable fire, God brings them to a right mind by things present. For such is the burning of Sodom, and that conflagration!…

“Consider how great is that sin, to have forced hell to appear even before its time!… For that rain was unwonted, for the intercourse was contrary to nature, and it deluged the land, since lust had done so with their souls. Wherefore also the rain was the opposite of the customary rain. Now not only did it fail to stir up the womb of the earth to the production of fruits, but made it even useless for the reception of seed. For such was also the intercourse of the men, making a body of this sort more worthless than the very land of Sodom. And what is there more detestable than a man who hath pandered himself, or what more execrable?”

Pope St. Gregory the Great: “Sacred Scripture itself confirms that sulfur evokes the stench of the flesh, as it speaks of the rain of fire and sulfur poured upon Sodom by the Lord. He had decided to punish Sodom for the crimes of the flesh, and the very type of punishment he chose emphasized the shame of that crime. For sulfur stinks, and fire burns. So it was just that Sodomites, burning with perverse desires arising from the flesh like stench, should perish by fire and sulfur so that through this just punishment they would realize the evil they had committed, led by a perverse desire.”

Catechism of the Council of Trent on The Sixth Commandment: “In the Gospel, too, Christ the Lord says: From the heart come forth adulteries and fornications, which defile a man. The Apostle Paul expresses his detestation of this crime frequently, and in the strongest terms: This is the will of God, your sanctification, that you should abstain from fornication; Fly fornication; Keep not company with fornicators; Fornication, and an uncleanness and covetousness, let it not so much as be named among you; Neither fornicators nor adulterers, nor the effeminate nor sodomites shall possess the kingdom of God.”

Catholic Encyclopedia article on Lust: “Theologians ordinarily distinguish various forms of lust in so far as it is a consummated external sin, e.g., fornication, adultery, incest, criminal assault, abduction, and sodomy.”

However, when faced with the common accusations that the Catholic Faith is uncharitable or that the Bible says “Who are we to judge?”, good Catholics must know how to respond.  I present to our readers the following from Jim Blackburn of Catholic Answers.  Although the authors of this site do not endorse everything Catholic Answers and theCatechism of the Catholic Church say, this is a fine rebuttal to the questions that have been raised.

“…Often people in these situations have tried to take some action already, only to be shot down immediately with the accusation that they are being “judgmental,” that the Bible teaches us not to judge others, that they should just mind their own business. “After all,” they’re told, “I’m not judging you and you shouldn’t be judging me. Read the Bible.” But is that really what the Bible teaches?

When pressed to show where the Bible supports this, those who can come up with any response at all usually point to Jesus’ words found in the Gospel of Matthew, “Judge not, that you not be judged.” Most people will stop there, with the clear conviction that the Bible teaches that we are not to pass any form of judgment on others. A closer look at this Bible verse and other related verses, however, uncovers a different understanding of Jesus’ teaching.

First, let’s look at the full context of Jesus’ words:

Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, “Let me take the speck out of your eye,” when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. (Matt. 7:1-5)

If we break this passage down line by line, it becomes clear that Jesus was not telling his disciples that they could not ever judge the behavior of others. Rather, he was cautioning them to live righteous lives themselves so that their judgment of others’ behavior would not be rash judgment and their efforts would be effective in admonishing their neighbors.

“Judge not, that you be not judged.” By itself, this statement could be construed to mean that one may escape even God’s judgment simply by not judging the behavior of others. Of course, everyone is judged by God, so this cannot be a proper understanding. Jesus goes on to reformulate his statement in a positive way: “With the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get.” Jesus indeed expects his disciples to judge but he warns that they, too, will be judged in a like manner.

This is reminiscent of the line in the Lord’s Prayer, “forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us” (Matt. 6:12). Much more than a simple warning that God will treat us as we treat others, this is an appeal to each of us to be as much as we can like God in the way that we treat others. The Catechism of the Catholic Church explains, “there has to be a vital participation, coming from the depths of the heart, in the holiness and the mercy and the love of our God. Only the Spirit by whom we live can make ‘ours’ the same mind that was in Christ Jesus” (CCC 2842).

In the next two lines Jesus cautions against hypocrisy: “Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?” Judging hypocritically is not effective. A petty thief admonished by a bank robber only scoffs at his admonisher.

Jesus then explains how to judge rightly: “First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Much to the point of this article, there can be no doubt that those final words—”take the speck out of your brother’s eye”—are, indeed, permission to judge so long as it is done rightly.

Other Bible passages which seem on the surface to indicate a condemnation of judging others’ behavior may be treated similarly in their full context. The idea of rightly judging the behavior of others can be found throughout the New Testament.

Jesus told the Jews, “Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment” (John 7:24).

He instructed his disciples what to do if someone sins against them:

Go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every word may be confirmed by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. (Matt. 18:15-17)

It is not possible to follow Jesus’ instructions without being “judgmental” of another’s behavior.

Paul, too, exhorted right judgment of other Christians: “For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. Drive out the wicked person from among you” (1 Cor. 5:12-13).

Also, “Do you not know that the saints [i.e. Christians] will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, matters pertaining to this life!…Shun immorality” (1 Cor. 6:2-18).

A look at the Old Testament reveals similar teaching: “You shall do no injustice in judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great, but in righteousness shall you judge your neighbor” (Lev. 19:15).

Clearly, contrary to what many would prefer to believe, the Bible exhorts us to rightly judge the behavior of others. The Catholic Church teaches likewise but cautions us just as Jesus did the disciples:

Respect for the reputationof persons forbids every attitude and word likely to cause them unjust injury. He becomes guilty:

  • of rash judgment who, even tacitly, assumes as true, without sufficient foundation, the moral fault of a neighbor;
  • of detraction who, without objectively valid reason, discloses another’s faults and failings to persons who did not know them;
  • of calumny who, by remarks contrary to the truth, harms the reputation of others and gives occasion for false judgments concerning them.

To avoid rash judgment, everyone should be careful to interpret insofar as possible his neighbor’s thoughts, words, and deeds in a favorable way: “Every good Christian ought to be more ready to give a favorable interpretation to another’s statement than to condemn it. But if he cannot do so, let him ask how the other understands it. And if the latter understands it badly, let the former correct him with love. If that does not suffice, let the Christian try all suitable ways to bring the other to a correct interpretation so that he may be saved.” (CCC 2477-2478)

Having said all that, there is a big difference between judging another’s behavior and judging the eternal state of his soul. The latter judgment belongs only to God. Jesus addressed this type of judgment too:

The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears my word and believes him who sent me, has eternal life; he does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life. Truly, truly, I say to you, the hour is coming, and now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live. For as the Father has life in himself, so he has granted the Son also to have life in himself, and has given him authority to execute judgment, because he is the Son of Man. Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming when all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come forth, those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment. I can do nothing on my own authority; as I hear, I judge; and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me. (John 5:22-30)

Clearly, in this context, Jesus was speaking of judgment as condemnation or eternal damnation. Such judgment is reserved to him alone.

So, when faced with the immoral behavior of loved ones, how can we be sure to rightly judge behavior? In Jesus’ own words, we must start by taking the logs out of our own eyes—by making sure we are doing the best we can to live lives of good example. We must also strive to form our consciences correctly so that we know sin when we see it. Finally, we must not jump to conclusions about another’s culpability in sin. Doing all this will help to ensure that our admonitions are seen as the loving actions we intend them to be—meant to help our loved ones live their lives in ways that are pleasing to God. Only then can our efforts be effective in helping to take these ugly specks out of our brothers’ eyes.”

So, as Bp. Robert Lynch condemns the Catholic Faith for treating “LGBT” people in such a way as to target and breed “contempt” for them, he calumniates Christ and His Angelic Bride.  He may as well have said that God Himself is to blame, since the teachings criticized are those of God Himself as reflected in His Church.  What an example of “diabolical disorientation” as prophesied by Our Lady of Fatima!  Our Lady of Fatima, ora pro nobis!

Homosexual marriage contains love and holiness?

http://www.tampabay.com/opinion/columns/column-church-needs-patience-humility-in-light-of-same-sex-marriage/2212639

You just can’t make this stuff up.

I just can’t stand when these Bishops talk about “the spirit.” What spirit? The same demonic spirit that has a foothold in the Church, influencing these men to praise and commend homosexuals? I’m pretty sure the Holy Spirit would want the Church to affirm that homosexual marriage is a great evil and cannot be extolled and commended under any circumstances because it is unnatural and contains within it one of the four sins that cries to heaven for vengeance.

But, alas, who are we to judge? What are we even talking about anymore? That’s all that old judgmental stuff. The Church was wrong for 1,950 years.

Right, Excellency?

The New Gospel of Sodom

sodom

The following is the explosive Synod Report from the Vatican:

http://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2014/10/13/0751/03037.html

http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2014/10/first-synod-report-homosexual.html

“Homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community: are we capable of welcoming these people, guaranteeing to them a fraternal space in our communities? Often they wish to encounter a Church that offers them a welcoming home. Are our communities capable of providing that, accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?

The question of homosexuality leads to a serious reflection on how to elaborate realistic paths of affective growth and human and evangelical maturity integrating the sexual dimension: it appears therefore as an important educative challenge. The Church furthermore affirms that unions between people of the same sex cannot be considered on the same footing as matrimony between man and woman. Nor is it acceptable that pressure be brought to bear on pastors or that international bodies make financial aid dependent on the introduction of regulations inspired by gender ideology.

Without denying the moral problems connected to homosexual unions it has to be noted that there are cases in which mutual aid to the point of sacrifice constitutes a precious support in the life of the partners.  Furthermore, the Church pays special attention to the children who live with couples of the same sex, emphasizing that the needs and rights of the little ones must always be given priority.”

The Vatican in this document is essentially approving of sin.  There is no doubt about it at this point.

They can’t use the Sacred Scriptures, the Church Fathers or the Saints to justify Sodomy because they clearly condemn it.

By their tacit approval of sodomy, fornication, cohabitation and adultery, they are hastening the day of chastisement and the wrath of God.  Souls are going to hell because of this, and now many more will be going to hell because they will now think that the Catholic Church approves of their sin.

You cannot accept and value the sexual orientation of homosexuals without compromising doctrine.  Catholic doctrine itself tells us that the sexual acts of homosexuals are depraved and go against nature and the laws of God, and yet now they are telling us that we must accept and value mortal crimes.  If we do this, the world will be destroyed as was Sodom and Gomorrah, unless we repent.

Let’s see what the Scriptures and the Saints say on this abominable sin that cries out to heaven for vengeance.  This Synod rejects God’s Word.

“But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up.

Seeing then that all these things are to be dissolved, what manner of people ought you to be in holy conversation and godliness?  Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with the burning heat?   But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his promises, in which justice dwelleth.

Wherefore, dearly beloved, waiting for these things, be diligent that you may be found before him unspotted and blameless in peace.”  ~ II Peter 3: 10-14

“Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, Nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God. And such some of you were; but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Spirit of our God.”  ~1 Cor. 6:9

“For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts and of creeping things. Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness:  to dishonour their own bodies among themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.  Amen.  For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections.  For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.”  ~Rom. 1: 22-26

Rome may not be apostate yet, but they are reprobate.

“And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another:  men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient.” ~Rom. 1: 27-28

The Mother of God has taken the wings of an eagle and fled into the desert.  She has fled Rome.  The secret Synod is an unacceptable place for the Spouse of the Holy Ghost, and so She is not to be found there.

Here we have Rome diving into the cesspool of licentiousness.  The following is what the first Pope, Pope Peter said about sodomy.   He preached the truth, with hell fire. And what does Pope Francis do?  He no longer preaches the Catholic Religion, but a religion of worldly passions and sins of the flesh.

There is nothing in the Holy Bible that justifies, excuses or makes an exception for sin. It’s the Holy Bible, not just some book.

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction.  And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not.

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but delivered them, drawn down by infernal ropes to the lower hell, unto torments, to be reserved unto judgment: And spared not the original world, but preserved Noe, the eighth person, the preacher of justice, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly. And reducing the cities of the Sodomites, and of the Gomorrhites, into ashes, condemned them to be overthrown, making them an example to those that should after act wickedly.

And delivered just Lot, oppressed by the injustice and lewd conversation of the wicked. For in sight and hearing he was just: dwelling among them, who from day to day vexed the just soul with unjust works. The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly from temptation, but to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be tormented.

And especially them who walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government, audacious, self willed, they fear not to bring in sects, blaspheming. Whereas angels who are greater in strength and power, bring not against themselves a railing judgment. But these men, as irrational beasts, naturally tending to the snare and to destruction, blaspheming those things which they know not, shall perish in their corruption, Receiving the reward of their injustice, counting for a pleasure the delights of a day: stains and spots, sporting themselves to excess, rioting in their feasts with you: Having eyes full of adultery and of sin that ceaseth not: alluring unstable souls, having their heart exercised with covetousness, children of malediction: Leaving the right way they have gone astray, having followed the way of Balaam of Bosor, who loved the wages of iniquity, But had a check of his madness, the dumb beast used to the yoke, which speaking with man’s voice, forbade the folly of the prophet.

These are fountains without water, and clouds tossed with whirlwinds, to whom the mist of darkness is reserved. For, speaking proud words of vanity, they allure by the desires of fleshly riotousness, those who for a little while escape, such as converse in error: Promising them liberty, whereas they themselves are the slaves of corruption. For by whom a man is overcome, of the same also he is the slave. For if, flying from the pollutions of the world, through the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they be again entangled in them and overcome: their latter state is become unto them worse than the former.  For it had been better for them not to have known the way of justice, than after they have known it, to turn back from that holy commandment which was delivered to them. For, that of the true proverb has happened to them: The dog is returned to his vomit: and, The sow that was washed, to her wallowing in the mire.”  ~2 Peter 2

Sacred Scripture, Tradition and the Magisterium have condemned this sin.  Of course, Rome turns a deaf ear to anything that came before the Second Vatican Council.  A Council that essentially started a new religion, which ignores dogma, doctrine, sacrifice, the Holy Mass, etc.

The smoke of Satan is suffocating the Church to death.  Only Her Divine Master can save Her now and He will, as He promised.

Hear from the Saints on the sin that cries out to heaven for vengeance.

St. Bernadine of Siena says that sodomy is the greatest sin.

“No sin in the world grips the soul as the accursed sodomy; this sin has always been detested by all those who live according to God.  Deviant passion is close to madness; this vice disturbs the intellect, destroys elevation and generosity of soul, brings the mind down from great thoughts to the lowliest. They become blind and, when their thoughts should soar to high and great things, they are broken down and reduced to vile and useless and putrid things, which could never make them happy.  Just as people participate in the glory of God in different degrees, so also in hell some suffer more than others for this is the greatest sin.  ~St. Bernardine of Siena (1380-1444)

Does Rome want hell on earth again, like at Sodom?  The Catholic Mass unites Heaven and earth, not Heaven and hell.  Recognizing the union of two sodomites unites the Church with the perverse.  As I’ve said before, the ultimate goal of this pontificate is Sodomite Marriage.

“But if thou scoffest at hearing of hell and believest not that fire, remember Sodom. For we have seen even in this present life, a semblance of hell an unquenchable fire. For such is the burning of Sodom.  Consider how great is that sin, to have forced hell to appear even before its time!  For that rain was unwonted, for the intercourse was contrary to nature, and it deluged the land, since lust had done so with their souls.  ~St. John Chrysostom

Here is what Pope St. Gregory the Great had to say:

“Sacred Scripture itself confirms that sulfur evokes the stench of the flesh, as it speaks of the rain of fire and sulfur poured upon Sodom by the Lord. He had decided to punish Sodom for the crimes of the flesh, and the very type of punishment he chose emphasized the shame of that crime. For sulfur stinks, and fire burns. So it was just that Sodomites, burning with perverse desires arising from the flesh like stench, should perish by fire and sulfur so that through this just punishment they would realize the evil they had committed, led by a perverse desire.                                                   ~Pope St. Gregory the Great

Therefore, wishing to pursue with greater rigor than we have exerted since the beginning of our pontificate, we establish that any priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge, let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have sunk into this abyss.”       ~ Pope Pius V

Those offences which be contrary to nature are everywhere and at all times to be held in detestation and punished; such were those of the Sodomites, which should all nations commit, they should all be held guilty of the same crime by the divine law, which hath not so made men that they should in that way abuse one another. For even that fellowship which should be between God and us is violated, when that same nature of which He is author is polluted by the perversity of lust.”   ~Saint Augustine

My fellow Catholics, this is another gospel, another jesus.  I’m sad to admit it, but our Pope is preaching another gospel.  A gospel void of any law at all.  This is antinomianism.  The prelates in Rome are anti-law.  They hate God’s moral law, with a passion.  Apparently, our sins are payed for, past, present and future!  Pope Francis says that those who are closed off from God’s surprises are like the Pharisees and Doctors of the Law who were closed off from the message of Christ.  Well now, surprise, surprise, surprise!  Gomer Pyle!  Look, Christ came to fulfill the law, not sacrifice Himself on Calvary so we could continue to live in gross sin and expect God to forgive all that we do. This gospel makes a mockery of Christ and puts Him to open shame.  How can we ask God for a heart to love the law when we are violating it on a daily basis?

This kind of talk is akin to that of a smooth talking politician.  Anyone who is opposed to what the Synod is doing is closed off from God like the teachers of the law in Jesus’ time.  But the fact that they were lawyers is secondary, it doesn’t follow that someone today who seeks to uphold God’s law is closed off from Christ.  This is double talk. Christ went to the cross because He loved His Father’s Law; this smut coming out of Rome besmirches the Atonement and makes a mockery of God’s law.  “If you love Me you will keep My commandments,” Jesus said. This double talk is designed to lead the people to believe that they can violate God’s moral law and still secure their salvation.

“Jesus answered, and said to him: If any one love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him, and will make our abode with him.  He that loveth me not, keepeth not my words.  And the word which you have heard, is not mine; but the Father’s who sent me.”   ~ John 14:23-24

To those who keep the words of Christ, the Father will come and abode.  Those who do not keep Christ’s words are not to expect His Father to come and do anything at all, until the last day when He will come and destroy them.  God has a benevolent love for the sinner in that He wills his highest good, but God’s abiding love is reserved for His saints.  God hates sinners with a holy hatred. He is angry with the wicked every day! God’s hatred is a holy hatred that is not rooted in malevolence.  Mourn sinner, God may hate you.  We must make a good confession and thank God for the Sacrament of Penance.  Jesus and Mary, help me to make a good confession, and then go and sin no more.

“I wonder that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel. Which is not another, only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema.”  ~Galatians 1: 6-9

Pope Francis fiddles as Rome burns

It is as I thought. The Council continues, but this time there are no ambiguities. They are out in the open in attacking the moral edifice of the Church. Pope Francis fiddles as Rome burns – Burns with lust to commit sacrilege.

From Rome:

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/breaking-synod-hears-explosive-proposals-to-drop-disordered-living-in-sin-e

The Synod of public acceptance has revealed that they want to drop anything to do with sin from the Church’s language. After all, saying “disordered” or “living in sin” offends people. You can’t say that adulterers are living in sin. They have to be allowed to live in sin. This is the devil’s desire, to see the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony desecrated when the day comes that adulterers are allowed to approach the Table of the Lord.

The rites of every Sacrament of the Church were changed as a result of the Second Vatican Council, except Marriage. Now, they’re coming for that. The Masonic infiltrators could not corrupt the Sacrament of Marriage through the ecclesiastical process. Their attempts at using the Scripture to justify their sinful lifestyles has been unsuccessful. Unfortunately for them, the people know how to read. So now, they have devised a scheme to pull the curtains at the Synod and corrupt Marriage through “pastoral application.” They are going to corrupt Matrimony ‘pastorally’ it seems.

The only way they have left to trash the sacrament of Holy Matrimony is to allow adulterers to profane the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Satan could not do it directly, so he does it indirectly. This is what the Synod is all about – How can they nullify the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony? This is the ultimate objective of the devil. Satan wants to get the Church to marry people into adultery and call it Holy Matrimony, but he knows he can’t do it and he is mad as hell about it. The next best thing is to have adulterers trash every other sacrament of the Church and then profane the Blessed Sacrament. This is a doctrine born of the Reformation, a doctrine that will lead fatally to the very denial of God. To knowingly receive the Holy Eucharist in a state of mortal sin, kills all sanctifying grace in the soul from Baptism. For the Church Herself to advocate such a sacrilege from the highest summit of Catholicism, is to deny the very existence of God.

The Synod is essentially saying that the whole mission of the Church, which is to condemn sin and save souls is no longer Her mission because it, “offends” people. Then what is the point of the Church anymore? Is it just an NGO, a community center, a club where everyone’s nice and nobody gets their feelings hurt? This isn’t the Catholic Church anymore. No, it’s not. The Church is being emptied of all divine content, but the Church will triumph again. The greater Her sufferings, the greater will be Her resurrection and triumph.

This is unprecedented, unheard of, what is coming out of Rome these days. When Rome was Catholic, what is taking place right now would have been unthinkable. Catholics would have stormed Rome in protest, if such occurred, as they did when Pope Gregory dared to touch the canon.

They are convening this Synod to attack the only Sacrament over which they have no authority, Marriage. This Synod is not just an attack on the Church, but on God Himself. What the leading Princes of the Church are saying is, “We hate you, God! We despise you! You’re a tyrant! Your moral law is unjust, and we refuse to obey it!”

Apparently, the world has changed to the point where we can no longer be Catholic. Apparently, we have to abandon our Faith. I for one will not. I will remain Catholic come what may, rack or rope, or unholy Pope.

Here we see the Romans’ desperate attempt to glorify sodomy and introduce sodomite “marriage” into the Church: The pastor of these sodomites praises their abominable sin.

I quote the priest, Fr. Bob White:

“The way Jamie came to his decision to marry was consistent with the man I’ve been proud to call my friend for the past 18 years. It is an honest and open expression of who he is and how he lives his life.”

The reason that this story made national attention is because they are trying to introduce sodomite “marriage” into the Church. They desperately want to torpedo the Catholic Church and sink her to the bottom of the ocean. The devil is trying to get a validly elected Pope to teach this heresy.

Even in Portugal, the sodomites are taking over. Our Lady of Fatima said that the dogma of the Faith would always be preserved in Portugal. The devil is coming for everything.

Spiritual Adultery is the worst kind. It is unfaithfulness to God on behalf of His Bride. That’s what this Synod is – Spiritual Adultery of the worst kind. Listen, as Satan whispers into the ears of those who have conjured up this Sick Synod, “never mind doctrine or dogma, we will just use them as stepping stones to reach the summit of our false faith – A complete and total rejection of anything that remotely resembles the True Catholic Faith.”

And when you’re finished, let me show you another scene; Behold your Saviour, the Holy, Spotless and Lovely Jesus, struggling with convulsive efforts to raise the cross, beneath which He has fallen – His visage is more marred than any man, His blood is dripping to the ground. Come quietly with me now, shhhhh, kneel down, look closely and see the stammering lips of your suffering Saviour as He seems to say, “sinner, for thee I freely suffer, for thee, I endure these afflictions that thou mightest be saved.” And finally, see His Father turn His back upon Him as He cries, My God, My God – Why hast thou forsaken Me! Thus an awful price was payed that day for our Redemption, but here too it must be noted, that without true repentance, there can be no forgiveness there…

Our Lord is permitting all of this to happen, He is testing the faithful ones, but He will not be mocked for much longer. God is not mocked, and yet; He is mocked by His own people and priests.

“The world has changed and the Church can not withdraw into supposed interpretations of dogma. We have to approach these social difficulties, both new and old, by extending a hand to give comfort, not by stigmatizing and criticizing people.” ~ Pope Francis

Well, isn’t that special. It’s Mr. Rogers neighborhood, where everybody is happy, happy, happy. No one is criticized, nobody is stigmatized; everyone is pastorized, homoized, just not catechized. Everyone is saved, with no repentance required!

Stay tuned for tomorrow when we will see the devil continuing to influence the Romans in their attempt to solemnize adultery. They will stop at nothing to get adulterers to stick their tongue out at God, with the approval of Rome.

Rome is blessed to still be standing on it’s foundation.

God will not be mocked.
