I was just in the shower, singing the Divine Mercy chaplet (yeah, I sing in the shower) and reflecting on a couple of things about our Catholic Faith. As many of us may (or may not) know, the coming of Christ and His sacrifice on the cross fulfills many of the prophesies foretold in the Old Testament, but also fulfills to the fullest extent the covenant God made to us, first with the Jews, then through his Son. And a question has come to mind: Can we who believe in the Risen Lord Jesus break the laws of the convenant that God has made with us? Not only just with sin, but in particular with the laws as governed in our Catholic faith? How is that done? Where in Scripture is that shown?
Also, another thought: How about Protestants? Have they in effect broken that covenant that was promised through the Word made Flesh? What if they are content with their own teachings, feeling that since they’ve accepted Christ as their personal Lord and saviour, is that a covenant onto it’s own, or is there more to it that maybe our seperated brethren in Christ don’t know, or care to know about??
I know the answer may be obvious, especially to those of us who are well-versed in the Catholic faith, but I would like to see what y’all think?
