The Antichrist in Muhammad

Muhammad attacked the doctrine of original sin and the "reverse side" of that doctrine, the Gospel that Jesus is the Savior of all men, that all men need salvation, and that salvation is offered to all men and women through Christ Jesus.  Muhammad "tampered" with the revelation of original sin, and thereby "undermined" the mystery of Christ. 

While the Obama Koolaiders maintain the Administration's policies do not attack religious liberty, I beg to differ, and James Kalb is prescient on the point in his recent discussion. I particularly like the comparison of faithful Catholics today with St. Thomas More!

Exciting New Book!

No, not my new book, though itis exciting, too.... but in my new book I do rely on Dr. Hitchcock's previous publications, and so am happy to report on his brand new issue! The endorsements rank among the best the Church in the U.S. has to offer!

Nancy Dancy (with you-know-who)

When asked about her "brushes" with the Catholic Church recently, Nancy Pelosi stated:
"I have some concerns about the church’s position respecting a woman’s right to choose," Pelosi responds. "I am a practicing Catholic, although they’re probably not too happy about that. But it is my faith."
"I practically mourn this difference of opinion because I feel what I was raised to believe is consistent with what I profess, and that is that we are all endowed with a free will and a responsibility to answer for our actions," she continues. "And that women should have that opportunity to exercise their free will." To which I would add: so was Lucifer.

Pope Self has been Dancing for awhile...

AS I mention in my first chapter, Pope Paul VI wrote that the Devil undermines man’s moral equilibrium with his sophistry. "He is the malign, clever seducer who knows how to make his way into us through the senses, the imagination and the libido, through utopian logic, or through disordered social contacts in the give and take of our activities, so that he can bring about in us deviations that are all the more harmful because they seem to conform to our physical or mental makeup, or to our profound, instinctive aspirations. This matter of the Devil and of the influence he can exert on individuals as well as on communities, entire societies or events, is a very important chapter of Catholic doctrine which should be studied again, although it is given little attention today." 

Evidence for such as this can be seen in exposition such as that regularly featured in the Huffington post. Here is one among many examples of assimilated demonic sophistry: " But the pope...worships a Trinitarian God who is father to himself, conceived by a union of feminine spirit with mortal woman to become mortal flesh that was still somehow fully divine. Talk about manipulation of nature!" Wow. Feminine spirit?  In Catholic teaching, the Holy Spirit is not feminine, as the ancient gnostics heresy taught. Perhaps too "pope" Self should study on the biblical understanding of God as Father. Whynot start here?

Piers has begun the dance with the Dragon, sadly. Let us pray...

Libido Redux!

Having viewed the libido as a way in which Satan can lead us away from the designs of the Father for His gift of sex, the following is welcome news!

The Only Authentic Solution for Our Times is Christ and Conversion

The concluding seventh chapter of The Smoke of Satan in the Temple of God comes to the same conclusion, especially relevant in this season for which Jesus is the reason! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!

When God wanted to defeat sin, His ultimate weapon was the sacrifice of His own Son. On Christmas Day two thousand years ago, the birth of a tiny baby in an obscure village in the Middle East was God’s supreme triumph of good over evil.

New York Times best-selling author and Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Regina Brett has issued a call for Vatican III. She says the Church needs true renewal. I agree that She does need true renewal, the best explanation of which is set down in Vatican II's call to personal holiness, yet to be acknowledged by a majority of Catholics in the U.S. at present (hence the Year of Faith!). Brett writes: "Instead of renewing our faith by returning to the fundamentals of church teachings, why not open our minds to a new church? It's been 50 years since Vatican II renewed the church and helped it face the modern world. The world has only gotten more modern. The Catholic Church hasn't." Just how will this produce true renewal? The New Evangelization is about true renewal, and the first step toward personal holiness. She also recites the familiar "God speaks, not only through popes, bishops and priests, but through ordinary people, including women, who hold up half of this world. That's what God did all through the Bible, speak through fishermen, tax collectors, wives, mothers and daughters to create disciples to spread the good news." I suspect the Devil relishes the thought that Brett might gain hearers in her attempt to play God. This sentiment amounts to yet another repetition of the misinterpretation of the sensus fidelium. On this, see the Holy Father here

"The angel's invitation to Mary is an invitation to a deep joy and announces the end of the sadness that is in the world caused by suffering, death and the darkness of evil, which seems to obscure the light of the divine goodness." As we are in the Year of Faith, and nearing the end of 2012, I thought it apropos to mention an insight by the Holy father, reflecting on the gift of faith

Hell yes!

Having written a book which discusses the reality of Hell in Catholic teaching, it is noteworthy to note the discission on social media of late! Fr. Barron weighs in here.

From the Archbishop

Having taught theology for 20 years, my experiences in cateshesis bear out the Archbishop in the following:

The illiteracy goes beyond history and other academic subjects.  Notre Dame social researcher Christian Smith and his colleagues have tracked in great detail the spiritual lives of today's young adults and teen-agers.[2] The results are sobering.  So are the implications.  The real religion of vast numbers of American young people is a kind of fuzzy moral niceness, with a generic, undemanding God on duty to make us happy whenever we need him.  It's what Smith calls "moralistic therapeutic deism."  Or to put it in the words of a young woman from Maryland, "It's just whatever makes you feel good about you." [3] As Smith observes: "It's not so much that Christianity in the United States is being secularized.  Rather more subtly, either Christianity is [degenerating] into a pathetic version of itself or, more significantly, [it's] actively being colonized and displaced" by a very different religious faith.[4]
This is the legacy — not the only part of it, but the saddest part of it — that my generation, the boomer generation, has left to the Church in the United States.  More than 70 million Americans describe themselves as Catholics.  But for all practical purposes, they're no different from everybody else in their views, their appetites and their behaviors.  This isn't what the Second Vatican Council had in mind when it began its work 50 years ago.  It's not what Vatican II meant by reform.  And left to itself, our life as a Church is not going to get better.  It's going to get worse.  So if we want a real renewal of the Catholic faith in Philadelphia, in the United States and worldwide, it needs to begin with us, right here and right now.
That leads me to my second point: what we need to do about the pastoral realities we face.  In calling for a Year of Faith, Pope Benedict said that "the renewal of the Church is . . . achieved through the witness offered by the lives of believers." [5] That means all of us — clergy, religious and lay.  We all need repentance, and we all need conversion. (The topic of my conclusion in my book!)

The Gates of Hell: Still Trying!

Having authored The Smoke of Satan in the Temple of God, I found Stephanie Block's new book both eye-opening and in the end not surprising!
