It is disgusting, that the repaganization of the West (esp Europe) is led by the Catholic Church. I have considered them Christian, as they back the Nicene Creed: but frankly, that’s just not good enough.
Thank God for Martin Luther, despite his failings!
And double praise for John Calvin!
Quoted from the article:
From a Moral-Historical Perspective, This Crisis is Worse Than You Realize
There is only one reason why pedophilia is even a moral issue today: historically, the Catholic Church made it one. Sex with boys and girls, but especially boys, was an accepted part of ancient Greek and Roman culture, the culture into which Christ Himself, and hence the Church, was born. Christianity rejected this common pagan sexual practice as a distortion of sexuality, and evangelized accordingly. If it were not for the success of Christianity’s evangelical efforts, the laws against pedophilia still on the books today would never have been there at all.
Moreover, pedophilia with boys was not confined to a few perverted individuals with exclusively homosexual orientation. The great majority of men engaged in it as an accepted part of Greco-Roman culture, whether they were (as we would designate them) homosexual or heterosexual. Thus, pedophilia was not a moral issue, but a cultural practice engaged in by most men. (This is an important point that I’ll take up in a future article, because it means that our current attempt to fix a definite homosexual “percentage” in the population, say 2 percent or 10 percent, doesn’t take into account that homosexuality and pedophilia can spread to the majority through a deformed culture.)
The sole reason that there are still secular laws on the books that prohibit and punish pedophilia is that Christianity came to dominate culture in the West through evangelization. The only reason that we have accepted homosexuality in culture and in law is the increasing de-Christianization of the culture in the West. As we become even more secularized (i.e., repaganized), pedophilia will soon be accepted, just as homosexuality, abortion, infanticide, and euthanasia have already been embraced.
This is a massive, massive crisis in and for the Church because a deeply-embedded worldwide homosexual network among our priests, bishops, and cardinals is actively engaged in bringing about the full de-Christianization of the world by preying on boys between 12-18, literally recreating Greco-Roman sexual culture in our seminaries and dioceses. If you want to know what it was like in the sordid sexual days of ancient Greece and Rome, just read the Pennsylvania Report.
That’s a rather horrible irony, isn’t it? The very men most authoritatively charged with the evangelization of all the nations are full-steam ahead bringing about the devangelization of the nations. In doing so, these priests, bishops, and cardinals at the very heart of the Catholic Church are acting as willing agents of repaganization, undoing 2,000 years of Church History.
To be even more pointed, these priests, bishops, and cardinals are the chief agents of devangelization, de-Christianization, repaganization. There is nothing, nothing, that undermines the moral and theological authority of the magisterium more quickly and thoroughly than the devilish marriage of scandal and hypocrisy. It destroys the ability to evangelize.
And note that I say both moral and theological. Why should anyone now take anything the magisterium has to say seriously, whether it’s the Church’s teachings about pedophilia and homosexuality, or its teachings on the Most Holy Trinity?
I will only add that the repaganization of the West will mainly impoverish and kill the West. The rest of the world does not have the wealth of the West, and so can’t indulge in the self-destruction that the West is inflicting on itself.
This will change: as the world gets wealthier, evil becomes more affordable.
But there isn’t any single authority – like the Secular State or the Catholic Church – that can prop up evil in the rest of the world. And as decentralization progresses, the power of such top-down institutions (such as they exist) will fade with time.
Even the Secular State will be delegitimized in time, especially with the bankruptcy of the welfare system.
The fact that the Catholic Church (behaving like The Whore of Revelation) choose to destroy its own credibility before the destruction of the Secular (read: anti-Christian) State (a.k.a. The Beast of Revelation) is there choice. A bad choice, with disinheritance as the impending result.
Biblical Christians should not merely avoid repeating the decisions of the Catholic hierarchy: they should aim to do even better than their fore bearers in Roman times.
Evil within and outside the camp are destined for humiliation and destruction: on earth and in our lifetime, and again before the White Throne.
It is the Christian duty to expand the Kingdom of God – on earth and in our lifetime – and so receive praise and rewards before the White Throne.
The meek before God: they will inherit the earth we walk on.
And they will receive great blessing at the end of history, as well.
