    @tryn
    In answer to your questions,
    -Many months’ of painful evidence,
    - IHS is a symbol devised by Catholic priest St. Bernadine of Sienna about 700 years ago and adopted by the Jesuits. It means Jesus. Catholics have since used it on altars and elsewhere as devotion to our Lord. LCDR co-opted it while spreading hate and lies about the Church that brought this symbol forth.

    We are praying for him.
    God bless

    @Punkachu
    Questions every human should ask him or herself. For those without an apostolic link to Jesus (such as all Protestants) the question could be why do you follow a faith leader who elects himself, is signed off by a Bible College somewhere, and whom each individual Christian elects for his or her pastor? If they don’t like the pastor, they vote with their feet and try out the next worship house down the road.

    What if people could vote with their feet under Moses? Remember when Miriam and Aaron claimed themselves leaders? How is this different from nonCatholic preachers? Voting with feet under Noah was done. They’re dead.

    Noah? Mocked. Ridiculed. Misunderstood. Sounds Papal.

    So these are questions all should ask. Do we go where we like the message or do we go where we hear Truth, whether we like it or not? Do we expect our human faith leaders to be impeccable at all times, or infallible in certain specific moments? Do we forgive them? Pray for them? Show patience, kindness, and other virtues toward them?

    If Jesus is a person’s faith leader, then why do they divorce and remarry? Why do they have hate in their heart, which he teaches breaks the spirit of the 5th Commandment (Murder)? Why don’t they trust His words – the Paraclete is guiding the Church? Why do they not love one another as Jesus has loved them, including loving Pope Francis as Jesus loves the Blazer, warts, sins and all?

    Why would Christians follow a faith leader -Jesus- they don’t listen to?

    @walk,
    When did you leave the Catholic Church? How old were you? Was it a particular teaching? How did you walk away from the Eucharist, knowing it was Jesus’ body, blood, soul and divinity you received? What Catholic does that except for ignorance or maybe pride – perhaps a doctrine that is too hard to accept and the person wants to make up her own morality and path to salvation? John 6:66 describes the rejection of the Eucharist by those told what the Eucharist truly is.

    Where in the Bible does Jesus say King James should have a Bible translated 16 C after the Church was already preaching and teaching from it, and that this Bible would be hailed as God-sent for generations but then 6-10 generations later would have an even perfecter version once those Deuterocanonicals were removed?

    Alot of faith to put into a King named James. Just a man.

    Since you are so interested in following God’s Word, which is good (all Christians should) you will have answers, no? But if following God’s Word meant something uncomfortable, would you just move to a different pastor (authorized by his Bible college) until you found one who agreed with you?

    @Vexed, if you believe your Bible is quotable, not to mention complete and true, you believe in infallibility you just don’t realize it.

  • [-2] May 26, 2015 at 5:07pm

    Rosech, Just keep praying. I’m sure you are.
    Remember the words of Jesus that St. Pope JPII always said _ Be Not Afraid.
    Remember the sources instilling fear have their own agenda. They need meat. This article doesn’t have any. The author is just afraid. That’s not from Jesus.

    Social justice isn’t always communist, even though Glenn doesn’t like that phrase. It is the Beatitudes lived. Remember, you will read anti-Catholic vitriol on the blaze from those who believe heresies such as once saved always saved and there is no need to care for the widows or orphans. Jesus is the one to listen to, not their interpretation.

    Any Christian without love for his brother who is working against unity is working against Christ’s own prayer. The devil divides and puts fear in your heart. Ignore those sources but gird your loins and prepare for spiritual battle. That’s what all this is.

    If the Church doesn’t teach truth, then where is it?

  • [1] May 26, 2015 at 4:57pm

    Christians can have no faith in the Bible if everything the Disciples and their successors said and taught is to be considered infallible. Why do you think God cannot give the kind of grace that can save His Church from teaching error on matters of faith and morals? Is He limited and unable to do that?

  • May 26, 2015 at 4:52pm

    VTVSD,
    Worse than what you say, not all “Christians” see Pope Francis as a brother in Christ.
    Christian charity requires benefit of the doubt and facts first, not treatment one would expect of a Pharisee or a brute.

    I agree with those who say he is just a man.
    I disagree when they put limits on God’s ability to grant him special grace to do the job Jesus designated when he instituted the Church on the rock and gave the first Peter the keys. Through succession, uninterrupted, Francis holds these keys.

    Peter wasn’t perfect, misspoke, didn’t always get it at first, and he sinned too, but you and I don’t see Protestants using that as an excuse to leave that Church, the same one that exists today under the stewardship of Francis.

    @dnewton,
    Do you believe the Pope doesn’t know what Genesis says?
    What does that statement say about you? Pray about it. Ask God to help you see the Pope the way HE sees the Pope.
    God bless.

    50% of the article is listing the subjects of prior Encyclicals. (relevance?)
    15% is about the author’s formerly being Catholic. (relevance?)
    0% is about what the Pope’s Encyclical actually says.
    The rest is insinuations and fear-mongering.

    Dear author, you left the Eucharist over a misunderstanding about infallibility, Peter’s role and authority, and the difference between practice and dogma? Fear not, brother. Fear especially not things that don’t exist like the Encyclical that hasn’t been released. Satan brings fear, Jesus brings peace. Be at peace. Hear Jesus by hearing those He has sent (He who hears you hears Me. He who rejects you rejects Me) and trust that Jesus will be with His Church until the end. He sent the Holy Spirit to guide the Church into all truth.

    Do you doubt Jesus? Will He not keep his promises? Can Jesus not protect His own Bride?
    God bless

    I doubt even you take your own comment seriously.
    If you are not Catholic, why don’t you ignore what he says? Or pray for him. Lying and being fearful aren’t helpful to your soul.

    Those emotions result even without formal religion because knowing you are violating nature’s laws doesn’t require religion.

    We have to pray for those in this struggle to choose the chaste life, just like we need to pray for teenagers and single straight people to live the chaste life.
    God bless.

    You’re right, by faith.

    & Jesus could not have been talking about today’s PCUSA elders and pastors when He says, (Luke 10:16) “He who hears you hears me, and he who rejects you rejects me, and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”

    In teaching heresy, it becomes clear these were not appointed and sent by Jesus to preach the Truth. All should wonder, then, to whom did Jesus give teaching authority?

    Apostolic Succession and the Church as the pillar and foundation of Truth have to be researched and understood by today’s Christian. No Bible college has authority from Jesus to declare someone a pastor.

    Trekkie, That’s a tough position to be in. Do you feel like the Holy Spirit is calling you to look elsewhere for the Truth?

    Have you read Scott Hahn’s Rome Sweet Home?
    He was a Presbyterian pastor and this book tells his journey to the Catholic Church, with his wife very unhappy about his researching and considering leaving Protestantism. Scott explains how he and his wife struggled but the call to come Home was too clear, with doctrine after doctrine making sense (Scripturally and rationally) only in the Catholic context. Eventually the Lord converted his wife, too, and both are leaders in the lay Catholic evangelization movement.

    On EWTN there is a program called the Journey Home, and on Catholic Radio there are many call-in shows to discuss situations just like yours. Most hosts are converts and know what you are going through. They say the same thing, you have to go where the Truth is.

    I’ll pray for you and your wife today.
    God bless.

    The Early Church and the Bible give a good picture of worship as God intended, that’s why we connect with it. The God who created us also designed worship because he knows his creation well.

    Read Revelation, go to Catholic Mass then read Revelation again.

    Priest homilies aren’t the point. Good ones are nice and informative. When you are fed Jesus Himself and from the Bible, that is most important. Going outside Jesus’ Church because of what a priest says or doesn’t say or how interesting it is, is to say “I reject you Jesus, for I reject the Eucharist.” It’s a John 6:66 move.

    Nowhere outside the Catholic & EO Church can you be fed the Body Blood Soul and Divinity of Jesus. If entertaining music and fiery sermons seem more important, it is the flesh talking, not the spirit.
    In Christian love,
    God bless.

    @808,
    Last sentence gives us alot to thank about.
    Thanks, brother.
    God bless.

    Jesus says those who deny Him, He will deny before the Father.
    He says those who reject His Apostles, reject Him.
    Pray for have faith and for God to give you courage through His grace.

    Jesus suffered and died so that we may have eternal life with the One who created all things. The least we can do is proclaim our witness to bring more souls to Jesus. Who cares about a stereotype? That comes from ignorance. Show them Truth – show them Jesus.

    God bless.

    Apart from the Church you will have a hard time understanding the Church’s Bible.
    The Church was given to us by Jesus who left no command or instruction to write anything down.
    As the Church established and grew, She wrote the Christian scriptures and kept the Greek Jewish Scriptures, under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit.

    So, if you want to properly understand it, ask the Church.
    The Bible is hard to understand and its meaning easily distorted, you need a teacher with Apostolic authority – 2 Peter 3:16.

    God Bless and get back on the journey.
    No “great man” lies and says He is God. That’s what a madman does.

  • [1] May 13, 2015 at 10:44am

    It is. The more closely one reads it, the more unreasonable it is.

    Blaze, how did you let this one through? We know anti-Catholic stories get good clicks for you but this failed all journalistic standards.

    He threatens like Alinsky that anyone who dissents from the author’s opinion is the same a pedophile accomplice.

    Is this the “love” Glenn wants to convey? I don’t think so but someone let this one through and Catholics won’t get an apology, or wait for one.

    We’ll forgive, as Jesus commands. We’ll turn the other cheek and wait for the next anti-Catholic piece. Or we’ll just move on where there is love, hope, and faith to be found.

    Stephen, author,
    Did you write the story with your opinion in mind and look for anyone in the press that would back you up? Or did you approach this topic with an open mind, seek facts from all sides using original sources, THEN form your opinion?

    Rush Limbaugh doesn’t like Catholicism. His statements about the faith have been wrong. He is a loveable fuzzball, but no expert on this issue, but you quote him for his opinion.
    You launched accusations about Romero without researching his own statements or history.
    You cited a Video and Game reviewer (!) as an expert on Catholic teaching who wrote an OPINION piece.
    You insinuated his employer was wrong to fire him (are businesses at liberty to hire/fire at will or not?)
    Your other sources are Huffpo and New York Times. Using the internet we can find a whole host of other sources that do not use the Pope as a prop for their agenda, yet I’m not seeing those reflected in your piece.
    You quote Castro’s friend as though his twisting of Christianity has anything to do with Truth and use it like an Alinskyite to add the element of fear to make your story juicier, to sway opinion.
    To further scare off any opposition to your views, you equate in slick Alinsky fashion, ANYONE who disagrees with you to those few who covered up the priest scandal.

    Bottom line: To dissent from you is to be a pedophile accomplice.

    Dear Stephen, please spend time in prayer over what you have written.
    Satan speaks fear into hearts. Trust in Jesus.
