Interesting that you see this…given that only one person made such a comment.
You can all bemoan the lack of some generic “moral code” but until you have fed the hungry, clothed the naked, cared for the sick, buried the dead, persevered in prayer, put yourself last, nailed yourself to the cross and put yourself in the tomb you have fallen short yourself.
At first reading I wasn’t sure how this fit in with the topic…but I think I see now.
Yes, “Christendom”, in many ways fell short of truly implementing the true Christian moral code on many levels.
Yes - we have all fallen short.
It is impossible to know the struggles other people are going through and how they might come to know God through it. It is impossible to know how pleasing someone else soul is to God right now or how pleasing it might be in the future.
No argument there.
Only the truly faithful? Really? Please give us sinners a break. Do you all think that you are Abraham? Remember that even Peter denied Jesus three times.
I asked a simple question designed to start some thinking. Thinking about how it must have been for the first and second century Christians when their outlook was very much not the norm or the “politically correct” one. As a Catholic I see this as something quite relevant to our modern times.
You all ought to be ashamed of yourself, and on Holy Saturday too when Christ lay in the tomb for your sins.
In the few posts offered I see very little that can be construed as “holier than Thou”.
I honestly do not know how you can get “everyone on this thread thinks the other guy”…and…“you all ought to be ashamed”…from the replies given.
I can assure you that I worry about my own strength, my own faith, my own love and my own worthiness on a regular basis.
