Is it possible that Satan is completely free of heresy?
Is it possible that Satan does not have even a sliver of doubt about all the dogmas and dogmas of the Catholic Faith?
I tend to thinks so.
Because Satan was formerly an angel of God in heaven, supposedly the chief angel or one of the chief angel. As a result of that role, her presumably know the facts and reality of everything, or nearly everything.
Because Satan is constantly described in Catholic tradition has being a supernaturally super-intelligent creature.
Satan is not in rebellion against God because he is ignorant, because he lacks knowledge or is misinformed.
Satan is in rebellion against God because he HATES God
and because, Satan, is full of PRIDE and so refuses to serve God (the "non serviam" of Satan that St. Josemaria Escriva constantly wrote about
Is that a fascinating thought: That Satan is 100% orthodox in his beliefs.
And isn't this a logical consequence of that: That heresy is NOT the greatest sin.
Rather, the greatest SIN is one or more of these:
--Refusal of HUMILITY
Just think of your own experience: Have you known Catholics who are 100% orthodox, 100% loyal to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, and yet
who were cold and belligerent and quite lacking in love for neighbor, stranger and/or enemies?
I have noticed that many Catholics who are adamant in their crusade against Heresy often LONG to see heretics and liberals crushed, punished, extinguished, exposed, defeated, humiliated. Is that Christian love? No. It is more like what Satan feels and wants.
I believe I have seen Orthodox, in myself and others, produce Pride and Sloth in Charity. We reason: I am, unlike all these disgusting liberals and dissenters, completely orthodox. Therefore, I am saved, and they are damned. Then, so what if I am mean to some people, and greedy and selfish often? I am saved because I am so loyal to the Catholic magisterium.
Therefore, I propose:
Orthodoxy without love and humility is Satanic.
Isn't that a justifiable conclusion?
Isn't that fascinating?
Thus, I worry about what some Apologists are doing today
. They seem to be promoting more of a bellicose, combative, Libido Dominandi, Satanic way of thinking, in line with what conservative political pundits and commentator do when riling people up to fight and crush the evil liberals.
In my experience and observations, Orthodoxy (correct belief) does not generally, by itself, produce "Love of neighbor as thyself." Just as often it produces Pride, Intolerance, and Hatred.
What does produce "Love thy neighbor as thyself"? Things that Satan never does, such as:
--Prayer to God.Does anyone share my worry
--Meditation on the Scriptures
--Honorable reception of the Sacraments
--Practice of true humility (seeing even homeless bums as being greater than ourselves)
--Being willing to lose in life when winning would require compromising one's integrity and one's practice of loving neighbors, strangers and enemies as out absolute equals.
--Gaining awareness of our own greed, lust, selfishness, self-centered, manipulativeness, etc., and regularly working to not act on such intentions/passions.
about today "New Apologists," many of whom, in their war against Heresy, seems to suggest that this war, combined with the political war against Liberalism, is ALL that the Catholic Life consists of. If that is true, we Catholics would be nothing but Satanists.
As St. Paul wrote:
1 Corinthians 13
13 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing....Satan seems to have 100% orthodoxy, no heretical beliefs whatsoever, but NO LOVE.
. Thus, he is damned, and is leading others to ruin, or trying to.
