revelations and discernment
What a mess the Churchmen have placed themselves. Today's modern catholic churchmen have become quite befuddled, confused would probably define their state. There is an attitude prevalent amongst them that is anti scriptural unless we can accept to the hubris in their frantic statement,"Father knows best". I maintain as I have before, Churchmen like liberals seldom get it right, however never fear they know they are absolutely certain of correctness of their decisions and opinions.
Is it only me who reads their comments and instructions then I wonder with my mouth, wide open, speechless at their need to place social justice before creation. Often I find they put words in Christ's mouth that He would never have uttered and from the shenanigans in the Boston Archdiocese I find they sincerely believe they can debate the issue of creation and God's creative works with the Lord of Creation Himself and show Him He is wrong and they have the power to change His Works willy nilly.
I find it most amusing sinfully why they go out of their way to challenge God and have silly faithful who believe their righteousness. Placing with them, those who Christ calls wolves and false prophets, they deny any help that Christ gives us through chosen mouthpieces. Yet they support those who are error filled. They use their power to prevent what God has spoken. The Spanish Inquisition that sat in Spain is a good example. They had the temerity in investigate Teresa of Avila and change what she had seen and heard in her spiritual ego. I use ego here not as a description of pride but as an entity that contributes to our holiness. There are other occasions one can find where they did not acknowledge repentance and happenings occurring before them. The treatment of Teresa Higginson is occasion that always reminds me of the foolishness of prelates
How can we simple people recognize or discern the movement of God and His needs in others. No screams of denial please from the liberals. Keep the open mind you demand of us, while I say your minds are always tightly closed.
What should we expect a prophet to do, to be? They exist to correct mistakes ancient or modern, to bring us back to the Church, Christ left us with. That is certainly not the Church they claim to be. Any words of love that do not express the exacting punishment awaiting us if we do not love as per God's will, is an issuance by fools. We should definitely expect as God prepares to punish His Church, these mistakes to be shown for our correction. As Christ our Lord and Master says, not 'Jose our bud', but Christ our Living God, "everything done in the dark will come into the light". Take that as Gospel. The Prophet who speaks for God will and should give us an assertive attitude by the world's standards. Of course that will not sit well with our demanding earthly masters or with their sycophantic serfs. God is a loving but stern Father and cannot change as He is I who am. In this day and age those of us in the Church realize that the influence of the sixties church and their ways of formation is still prevalent, except in those parts of the world where the sixties never became the aberration it was for us in the west. So expect from a mouthpiece strong words that will remind us if we do not love God's way, do not accept God's directions, precepts or commandments to receive dreadful and dire reminders of His non democratic powers, even I believe the warning of the state of one's soul before God the Just and Dreadful Judge.
I must also write, "How do we really expect God and therefore Most Holy Trinity to see us. First and foremost we are His Children, immature, feckless and recalcitrant. We need to be formed as children to Him, in order to save our soul. No matter how our egotistical mind sees ourselves we in this world are adults but compared to God in His mind we are little immature parts of His creation that He treasures. Like a good father he leans over us and if we think in a worldly way as did Christ in this world, He often caresses and kisses us as we should expect to receive as obedient children of a loving father. Do not think for one moment this Father, terrible and jealous for His children will not send us to our room for bad behavior. Whatever that room is, is subject to His definition. Think otherwise at the peril of your immortal soul. Expect whatever revelations that come will lead to salvation or for the good of His children. God can do no less He will do the same as before and warn the same as before. In this troubled Church today foolish masters in their material and secular egos so often dismiss and debate the Words of God. They are definitely not capable of recognizing God's work. It was I believe, Iranaeus of Lyon that wrote, "Like knows Like". What does that mean? Is it not obvious that a baptized catholic, in a state of sanctifying grace recognizes in another the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit of the Father and the Son. I know it is so and do any of you think likewise?
