  Keeping us inside the Law part 1
I ask you all or I wonder if we can see our Life and Resurrection will happen in or outside the Law of God as taught and demonstrated by Jesus? I feel if we are a member of God's community then like masonry we have to obey the founder's rules, no mater whether they be called rules, laws orders or commandments. We are attracted to what we feel are the virtues of the founder's life. What better than the Law of the Word whose contemporaries claim He is the embodiment of all good virtues  His works are the authority we accept in order to join. What then is our eternal life to be? Will we live eternally in the Heaven of Divine Love, close to the source of all eternal happiness or in the hell of despair and hatred for ourselves and those fellow citizens we will join inhabiting in the woeful abyss?
In the past on this blog my feelings on the social relationship that many of us, myself included exist, a charity which is inside the Law governed by His standards and not our opinionated ways. This Charity, by Christ's answer to the scribe, is very much for me living the Way of Life as laid down by the Word of God for us to be fully existent inside God's community. The community He established for our pleasure in His eternal company. It is not the interminable way of Luuuve, as is so often sermonized by priests and held dear by those who remain standing with feet set in cement outside the Law, looking in and not participating fully in His delights
There is a great difficulty in describing the seeming lack of catholic charity towards the salvation of our brothers and sisters. Part of this difficulty is to express charity without being pompous and also not to cause enmity between our brethren. Charity works both ways, one to offer it and one to accept it. Unfortunately so many resist the offer of and the offer of receiving quite violently. It is unfortunate one defence is often an outraged screech used to to defend one's view of what we perceive to be our so called catholic identity. No one amongst us wishes to be seen and described as fallen away from God's desires or will for us. Is it then any wonder the priesthood is reluctant to preach on sin when tortured consciences amongst their flock rise up in a vexatious anger when warnings of approaching spiritual doom causes instantaneous apoplexy by guilty consciences? I mean the accusation given either fraternally or harshly as befits the situation existing in so many because of the lack of use of those Holy Mysteries called the Sacraments, prayer and a lack of the virtues of religion and piety has placed their eternity in danger. Even more disgusting is the lack of efforts to inform one's conscience and not to inform others of the ways in which we should offer our rituals, rites and sacrifices. The salvation of those who sit in the pew beside us and those who sit outside the laws, and commandments of God and the six precepts of the Church is absolutely necessary to our catholic religious life and its success's. It is of no import and of no matter if our individual thoughts cause us to say no way. The final end and judgement is for our souls more important in God's sight for us. Our drive helping in the salvation of others which by the way should after our own, has to be very dear to us. We dare not, not one of us can shirk this responsibility, even when accusations of nosiness are hurled against us. So often do we Catholics hear and witness to woefully silly attempts of those both inside and outside the Law to defend themselves against warnings from friends, neighbours, brothers and sisters, by saying you cannot judge me. Why not, does not the Catechism give us ways and means to know and discern sinful actions and habits? Does not the Church teach the large and huge majority of us have reached the age of reason and can see right from wrong. Is the Church, to which we belong, wrong? Will some one tell me, that I am prevented from examining the facts and actions we daily observe and read. Have we not the teaching to recognize the occasions of temptation and misfortunes of sin aptly described by the 'thou shalt nots' of the catechism. 
Now ask of yourselves if according to scriptures if we have the ability and we are commanded under pain of being involved in the misfortune, about to be committed or is about to be, to warn that certain acts are sinfu and dangerous to our eternal life? Those acts known of and described by the Church which are as the old church says malicious actions against God's love? Those outside our law often quote the scriptures falsely. It is called text proofing. Text proofing is using words and parts of verses in a such a manner to make the quote usedto fit our personal desires of what Christ said and Apostles wrote that fufill our desires to be seen as hol. They are often an incomplete thoughts on religious matters as as written by for example, the Apostle Paul. This often means deliberately ignoring further teachings, often further describing errors and giving a stronger and more complete understanding of religious faith and tenets, by the Apostles and fathers of then Church. This is why it is dangerous spiritually to read Scriptures outside the Law of the Spirit that taught and now qualifies the understanding of our faith. The work of the helpful paraclete, who knows of how to correct teachings already expressed earlier and are explanations made later that further correct newer misunderstandings. These are forms of revelations that put right more modern and newer occasions of theological and erroneous habits. The use proof textings raise up in my mind the lack of grace so often found outside the law. They warn me a lack of grace gives a lack of knowledge and understanding and are usually false truths. They arise from a desire for self justification. That attitude is so prideful and leads to obscurantism. One of the most frightening is the Changing of just in bible translations today changing the word to righteousness, making the poor impoverished souls of many to believe, “I am just I have been forgiven I am heaven bound”. Abraham was counted as just he did not enter heaven, until the Saviour Messiah opened the gates of heaven. The Hebrews called the 'Catholic Limbo', Abraham's bosom.

I notice the present Pope is very practised in dropping short phrases, unfinished teachings as it were, like the above on Catholic dogma. He talks about conscience and as a Jesuit he should know better, since his congregation promoted, “Free Will, use of an informed conscience and thence the  burden of choice”. There are many short phrases he uses that are incomplete and have led to great misunderstandings. I can only hope that he is being thoroughly Jesuitical and that we inside the Law are adult enough to know what the full teachings are, yet teasing those outside the law to a more profound discussion on the True Law of Catholicism. Mind you the Jesuit mindset has always been this way. Jesuits feed you enough to be hungry for more, giving one an appetite for more instructions. I hope his demand on how to love will cause many to ask how to love. The last interview I read he spoke of the Holy Spirit in the Church keeping it Holy and how the Bishops are prompted by the God of supernatural love and sanctifying grace. As usual this is incomplete, and enters us into the realm of Lutherism. My question is how many prelates, bishops, priests and laity do hear the Holy Spirit. The frightening question is how many discern and obey the voice that should be, but often is not. That is, not an interior conversation with the God residing gracefully inside us? Once not long ago I asked a priest in whom I would not place my salvation except for Confession if there is no other priest around, “How often do you pray for help Father? “Very often”, he said. “Then why do you turn it down when He sends someone you do not like?” He broke down and cried, I left. I often remember or is it reminded so often, the scriptural admonition of deaf ears.
Once again, so I will never have to face the charge of luring some one, any one away from God, print this out or forward it to your parish priest and ask for his take of what is written. I suggest get him to explain it to you, so I have not endangered your soul. Do you not think you should do it so you are protected against believing what may be sinful and cause danger to your eternal salvation.
