So a friend in Riverville turned me on to a Metaphysics class that I could listen to, and good grief are you people in trouble now! Metaphysics is kind of trippy-wippy as it is, in extremely simple terms, the study of “being”, and not for everyone to be sure. But, amongst all of the tall, dense weeds that one must wade through, glorious clearings open up, and there are truths therein that every single human being can use in day to day life to be… wiser. And we LUUUURV wisdom, because Proverbs 1:7 tells us, “The Fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. Fools despise Wisdom and instruction.”
I have listened to three hours of lecture so far covering exactly eight paragraphs of text, and have half-a-dozen essay topics already, all of which illuminate what exactly it is that is going on in these dark days, both in the secular realm and in the Church.
The first: So… what in the blue, fiery blazes is happening with this Synod on the Family thingy?
In short, the infiltrators of the Church are trying to accomplish nothing less than the total destruction of the Church. They subscribe to the satanic heresy of MODERNISM, which is, quite possibly, the worst heresy ever. Pope St. Pius X called Modernism “the synthesis of all heresies”, meaning all heresies combined. Think of Modernism as the Super Wal-Mart of heresies. EVERYTHING is in there. And here’s where the metaphysics comes in.
Modernism denies that there are any UNIVERSALS. Universals, in this metaphysical context, means things that DO NOT CHANGE. You know, like… God, Truth, His Law, Scripture and even mankind itself. Modernists, denying that there are any universals, thus insist that EVERYTHING is in a constant state of flux, and thus NOTHING can ever be parsed or … wait for it … JUDGED within the stable matrix of UNCHANGING TRUTH.
Y’all see where we’re going with this?
So, for example, Our Blessed Lord, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, God Almighty Incarnate said in Matthew 19, “And I say to you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that shall marry her that is put away, committeth adultery.” The “except it be” means that a husband can “put away” his cheating wife, but it in NO WAY says that he is free to marry another woman while the wife is still alive. He is not. The “except it be” is referring to the putting away, NOT “dissolving” the marriage.
So Modernists, denying that there is any such thing as a UNIVERSAL unchanging truth, blow off the words of Our Blessed Lord, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, God Almighty Incarnate, by saying things like this: “To search for what it is the Lord now asks of His Church, the need to listen to the rhythm of our time and feel the smell the people of today…”
Because, you know, everything’s DIFFERENT now, because everything is in a constant state of flux, there is NO SUCH THING as UNCHANGING TRUTH, so what Our Blessed Lord, the Second Person of the Triune Godhead, God Almighty Incarnate said and the Holy Ghost recorded through the pen of St. Matthew is real cute and all, but come on. That was 2000 years ago. Maybe that applied to THOSE PEOPLE THEN, but no one seriously believes that you can apply these ideas to us today, because WE’RE DIFFERENT. The world is different. The CHURCH IS DIFFERENT. And, let’s be honest, people today aren’t just different – we’re BETTER. We have EVOLVED. And the Church, why it’s never been better! And how could it not be, because it has US, the new, different, BETTER men populating it!
And so even what Pope St. John Paul the Second The Greatest Pope EVAH said just a few years ago about the indissolubility of marriage, heck that was SO THIRTY YEARS AGO, dude. And tomorrow, when Sister Joan wants to marry a dead female poodle, or whatever, then this will be fine because “the rhythm of the time” and the acrid stench, er, excuse me, the perfume of the people will be different than it is today, and WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE anyway, because there is no such thing as universal, unchanging truth, therefore the entire notion of judging particular situations and actions is completely IMPOSSIBLE. How can anyone, including God Almighty, possibly say that ANYTHING is “intrinsically disordered” if there is no referential matrix that we can judge any particular thing against, because EVERYTHING is constantly changing? New Spirit. New Springtime. New Pentecost. Let us “Sing a New Church into being”, as the common Novus Ordo hymn says.
Folks, this demonic, Modernist garbage is the living, breathing definition of “diabolical disorientation”. We’re there. Satan is now trying to completely undermine and destroy in the minds of men the entire notion of universal, unchanging truth.
Ending on a positive note:
…And the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.
“That is, the powers of darkness, and whatever Satan can do, either by himself, or his agents. For as the Church is here likened to a house, or fortress, built on a rock; so the adverse powers are likened to a contrary house or fortress, the gates of which, that is, the whole strength, and all the efforts it can make, will never be able to prevail over the city or Church of Christ. By this promise we are fully assured, that neither idolatry, heresy, nor any pernicious error whatsoever shall at any time prevail over the Church of Christ.”
