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?
