The Capture of a large part of Catholic leadership by militant homosexuals and their enablers has caused Catholics to question the current direction of the Church.
We see disobedience by priests and indifference by bishops. How could this have happened to Christ's Church?
We need to look for support to the history of the Church. The concord of current Church teaching with that of the Church Fathers. The great saints our Church has produced. And if there is evil in our ranks, it is only to be expected, since we'll be the natural target of Satan and his henchmen, who have spent the last century grooming sodomites to infiltrate the Church, gain positions of influence, and bring in their own kind.
History tells us that Christ founded a kingdom. At no time did He say, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am founding a kingdom to help you get to Heaven. But it's OK if you go elsewhere. You will be saved anyway." Ridiculous, but that is what Protestants and other non-Catholics believe.
Christ performed miracles. His enemies among the Jews acknowledged them, so when He explained to us what we need to do to reach our eternal destiny, it would be foolish to look the other way. If He says He is the way, the truth and the life, whatever we do in our lives, it needs to be orientated toward our final end. Anything else is a waste of our limited time.
Half a millennium ago, during a time of corruption in the Church, Protestants decided to go their own way. Somehow they thought they had discovered new truths, hidden from the saints and the Fathers of the Church.
They said that faith was enough to save them. The Bible of course says otherwise. They said that the Bible was enough to save them. Again, the Bible differs. They insisted on private interpretation of the Bible, rejecting the authority of the Church. But they created so many interpretations that there are more than 30 000 organisations interpreting the Bible, but saying different things. Even among themselves, they disagree on interpretation. One of the 'reformers', John Calvin, decided that his interpretation of the Bible was more authoritative than that of Michael Servetus, who ended up being burned for heresy (imagine being killed for heresy by those who claim that we can all make up our own minds).
So Protestants have to find a church which accommodates their own feelings. When the preacher says something which upsets them, they must fellowship elsewhere. This is because their organisations have no authority.
If Jesus is God, and his miracles would appear to be very strong evidence, then He has placed us under an obligation to join and take part in His kingdom. We are here under test, to find out if we are going to spend eternity in great happiness, or in great pain and misery. The test does not favour intellectuals. We are given a choice - seek a reward in this life, or in the next.
Our enemy has managed to convince intellectuals that we can have a universe without a God. He has managed to substitute a new religion called evolution in place of Christianity. So many educated people now believe that a nothing exploded, made the stars and planets and other material, and that some of that material turned into single-celled animals which turned into people like us. Sounds a lot like frogs turning into princes, and just as believable. But they believe it.
Evolution is a religion, with little truth but many fables. It demands great faith, because it lacks evidence. Here is an example of its desperation: Dawkins Makes an Eye
There is no serious evidence for evolution. And in the end, evolutionists must face the question of who created the laws of physics, and how the electron evolved.
The enemy of mankind has managed to insert into Protestantism some sort of resistance to the glories of the Mother of God. There are 'experts' who call Mary a sinner, since St Paul says that 'all have sinned' (Rom 3:23).
This illustrates what Protestants lost when they abandoned authority. St Paul cannot mean that every single person has sinned. We know that Christ did not sin. And it would be hard to pin guilt on babies, who cannot have offended God.
Yes, Mary needed a saviour (Luke 1:47). But saviours can save after the event, or prevent it altogether. Reason itself should be sufficient to decide this difficulty. Is it conceivable that God would choose to be born of a woman who has been a slave to Satan? And in Luke 1:48 Mary says in prophecy that all generations will call her blessed. Only in the Catholic Church is she called Blessed.
In the end, the Catholic Church is inevitable. Those who accept the evidence will survive judgement, which is irresistible. Those who decide to go their own way in this life will be lost. The Catholic Church teaches that to make it to Heaven, you must become part of the organisation founded by Christ. The logical conclusion is that non-Catholics do not go to Heaven. They go elsewhere.
