Saint Paul has determined that listening to progressive (c)atholic ideology is dangerous to your spiritual health and well being.
So then,For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings.—2 Timothy 4:3
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.—St. Matthew 7:15
Our shepherds who lack the Faith, the stewards of the sacraments, have failed to offer the people the Truth of the Gospel and the Gospel's home—the Mass. And so, the people have wandered, often into strange cul-de-sacs that give host to cult-like devotion to celebrity ministers who preach a prosperity gospel.
The Catholic faithful have wandered for forty years, in most cases unable to enter the promised land. And that land promised by the Second Vatican Council? In most locales it, too, has been poisoned by false teaching, teaching that hinders true worship of God. In the Liturgy as it is typically celebrated, i.e., versus populum, the congregation is turned in on itself. That is, the congregation is turned away from God, usually toward some narcissistic priest who uses his homilies to practically demand the adoration of his flock.
Left with nothing but himself to adore, man lies prostrate before his own image. To further complicate his predicament, modern man has believed the lie that not only is there not a good and gracious God, there is no devil. The last word goes to Baudelaire:
La plus belle des ruses du diable est de vous persuader qu'il n'existe pas.—Charles Baudelaire
Satan's next trick will be to try to persuade you that you do not exist or should not exist. Do not listen. Trust in Jesus!The devil's finest trick is to persuade you that he does not exist.
