What IS and IS NOT

Whatever You May Think...You're Not Something Else

Are you shaking your head at the aliens around us? Bruce Jenner decides he's a "woman." A five-year-old girl convinces her parents to let her be a "boy." Two men decide they're "married." Two lesbians arrange to have children "of their own."

Humans redefining reality has never worked very well. Nature will have the last say; indeed, "pride goes before destruction"  But "pride" is too weak; we're going to need a new term for the arrogance of the age.

More mundane and less news worthy to the world are the seven women who recently declared that they are now ordained "Catholic Priests". The ceremony was performed in an Episcopal Church by the laying on of hand by a Female "Catholic" "bishop." Hmmm? Clearly, the seven women and everyone else involved in the hoax have either no true understanding of what Catholicism is about, or they think they can change it by disregarding its basic tenants. In a general sense the term "catholic" means "universal." But its an equivocation to think the largest Christian institution in history involves "universalism."

Is the Church "damaged" by this craziness? Not in the least. In fact, the skeptics are these women. The pagans know what a Catholic is, that's why they mock the CINO's (Catholics In Name Only) for not living up to their faith.

What Catholic means confessional is this:  Whatever the church teaches, I  will agree and follow. These women were excommunicated by simply going through their silly ceremony.

Protestantism also makes light of Christianity when they declare new doctrine never before taught by the Church through its history. You can't personally change a definition and expect the defining entity to have suddenly change. Christ makes a point about this in John 6, "Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you."  Then, a few verses later John writes, "On hearing it, many of his disciples said, 'This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?' ”

Do you like Biblical numerology? The disciples that didn't accept Christ's teachings of what Christ said IS, became alienated, and no longer followed him. The verse that describes this is 6:66.

Do you get the picture? It might be good to question just what and who is a real Christian. But I hate guessing. I was Protestant for years and I was never sure.

That's why I'm not an alien. I'm Catholic.
