Knowledgable but untutored
In the blog about how chemicals especially steroids derived from testosterone and estrogen are causing our bodies to change, or can cause them to change, I wrote what I have garnered by reading on the Internet and in Library books various treatises by qualified people. I admit in one or two cases I have made my own suppositions from what I think is happening. As a believing practicing Catholic and I can say I am neither fallen or lost I believe that I get as a gratuitous gift from God His indwelling Holy Spirit infused into my soul. (Infused is the right word.) It would take so many words and lines to explain how this effects my mind so I will make this claim, what I have just written being so I have the interior movement of His Intellect to help me to the degree the merits of the Charity I practice have raised me above my spiritual and intellectual torpor. This is in its way for all of us who are catholic and practice the catholic Mystical Life of the Sacraments, rituals and prayer life enables us to prophecy. Now get this straight what I am claiming. Simple put I claim that with the help of God's sanctifying grace I can meditate perhaps even contemplate with God's help the future results of both sin and grace. Remember though unless one does the truly catholic thing there is no sanctifying grace inside our soul. The Holy Spirit accompanied by the Father and the Son as Christ prophesied and taught is not their as They will not share their temple with the enemy. We deliberately put the abomination of desolation on the altar of our soul. I warn you before any of us make the claim to grace especially sanctifying grace then study the doctrine as written by the earlier teachers. I cannot profess to understand the catechism on the subject.
To give you a point from which to start. When we consider "sanctifying grace" which is commonly called the "state of grace" we should know that not all graces are included. The state of grace means, "a vital union with Jesus Christ: the presence in us of the Holy Ghost, the grace that makes us Holy and pleasing to God, makes us adopted children of God makes us temples of the Holy Spirit, and gives us the rights to heaven. But and it is a big but we can lose this grace through mortal or grave sin. John 14:23 tells us what the indwelling of the Holy Ghost means. We cannot acquire this grace it is an infusion although we cannot doubt that God if He sees we make a sincere effort through the sacraments, prayer, charity and other good works He will infuse It in us. It does not come for free, but a solemn, Sacrament of Baptism, or Confession and at times the Last Rites will give us as the Church teaches the state of grace.
Here is where I am going in the blog I started by mentioning at the head of this one. I wrote about a scientific development called nano-technology. This for want of a better description are particles of matter smaller in size the molecules of water and for that matter than all liquids. We can therefore receive them knowingly or unknowingly in medicines, foods and drug treatments such as asthma inhalators. The claim made is they will be able to cure cancers but these nanos when applied enter the blood stream and pass through the brain, the heart and other organs. Look what we can expect and do you not think that the Multinational corporations and unscrupulous governments will use them to their advantage? What if a government decides we need to vote their way. These nanos can be opened or activated by wireless technologies as they are transmitter/receivers too and goodness knows what they will do when lodged in our brain. What if a food brand decides that they want us to like only their brand and places nanos programmed in some way to make us like their brand, will we be programmed to buy only their product. Can you deny this possibility from the God forsaken group that brought us subliminal advertising. What is the Church going to do say they can find nothing wrong in this technology. Will any government faced with the control and the amount of money already spent on research (Billions in California alone) deny and set controls on the experimentation?
1984 is so far out of date and that program and book was terrifying and has programmed us to accept the inevitable. Perhaps it is for interested groups to start a class action suits against drug manufacturers, against agribusinesses and even any group that advocates this slow but steady destruction of the human race. The Bishops will not speak out against this chemical corruption done in the name of good health and medicine powered on both sides by the God, "Money" Look how long it came for the Church to examine stem cell research and with all the results that are coming to light on heart transplants why does the Church allow it in the Name of Charity?
If you still deny the chemical changes wrought by Estrogen and Testosterone why then do they need so much of one or the other when doing gender changing medical procedures?
