Last week, while driving in my car, I was listening to the radio and heard news of the preaching of the 'New Cosmology.' Not only is the 'New Cosmology,' in its panentheism, and in its New Age tinge, not Christian, nor does it abide with official Catholic teaching, but its main (and willing) recipients are, sadly, women religious (consecrated--nuns, sisters) in America.
This is but another example of the constant attack of 'Christians' who deny the Cross and preach a 'new gospel.'
When will we wake up and see that the Trojan Horse is truly within our Church?
"Come now, you who say, 'Today or tomorrow we shall go into such and such a town, spend a year there doing business, and make a profit'– you have no idea what your life will be like tomorrow. You are a puff of smoke that appears briefly and then disappears... All such boasting is evil." James 4:13-17
Many 'Catholics' and 'Christians' in America have sold their Savior to the enemy for thirty pieces of silver!
Dark forces have brought America into the brink of moral collapse, not to mention economic disaster, through two elections which have brought anti-Christian secularists, anti-Marriage and anti-Family radicals, and anti-Constitutional Socialists into power.
Inarguably, the new power in America is purely evil.
But what is bewildering is the fact that so many 'Catholics' and 'Christians' are amongst them, support them, or simply sit idly by while they destroy our beloved nation. (If you are reading this, and you are not from America, please consider that you are more vulnerable when America is weak and fallen.) Traitors to the faith, like Nancy Pelosi, Kathleen Sebelius, Chris Matthews, the 'Nuns on the Bus,' Father Michael Pfleger, and the millions, yes millions!, of 'Catholics' and 'Christians' who parade themselves on 'Pro-Life' marches, yet vote for Barack Obama TWICE!, these are the new Judas Iscariot.
And they do it to fit in, to profit, and to avoid the Cross which comes with being faithful...even when it hurts!
"They trust in their wealth; the abundance of their riches is their boast. Yet in no way can a man redeem himself, or pay his own ransom to God; Too high is the price to redeem one’s life..." Psalm 49:2-3, 6-11
Yet, how do they deny the Cross?
Those who put their faith in the Crucified (and Risen) Jesus, put their trust in Jesus as their Savior. Those who trust in Jesus as their Savior accept His Way as the only Way to heaven. This Way includes renouncing worldly pride in lust for power and greed in material possessions. This Way demands power be exercised in charitable service, and wealth be shared freely, and unforced, for the common good. This Way cherishes Life--from conception to natural death--and views Marriage as a holy Sacrament (solely between a man and a woman), which reflects Jesus' Love for His Bride the Church--a relationship which is always open to Life.
'Catholics' and 'Christians' who support secularism, socialism, militant homosexuality, abortion, contraception, and persecution of God's Holy Church, see the government (and themselves) as saviors. They see Jesus, and His pesky morality--as pronounced doggedly by the Catholic Church--as an obstacle to their building of the new Tower of Babel. They no longer see lust and greed as sins, since, without God, there is no sin! And Life, that's for them to define. So too is Marriage and Family.
"There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me. For whoever is not against us is for us.” Mark 9:38-40
It's about time real Catholics, and real Christians, assess who their allies are!
Let's face it. We are in the midst of a spiritual-cultural war. When bullets are flying you need to find out, quickly, who your allies really are. Sadly, a baptismal record isn't one of those recognition markers. The only recognition marker that can truly be trusted is found in the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ: 'By their fruit you will recognize them.'
What I am trying to say is that the paradox of our current situation reveals the oddity of Christian friendly atheists and 'Christian' dangerous radicals.
I witnessed this on one of the strangest of Television debates.
'Catholic' Piers Morgan, of CNN, attacked official Catholic teaching, while atheist Penn Gillette defended the Catholic Church's right to preach the gospel, and thanked the Church for its rich history of charity. This is the perfect example of Jesus' words.
Masks do not reveal the person. Masks are meant to deceive! Hearts and minds, active in life, reveal who we really are.
Please, pray for your enemy, but, be very careful of the 'Christian' who denies the Cross!
