No, nobody did, as such, but a few hint’s, maybe.
I am a bit confused though. We have The Bible, and then we have our lovely CCC with all answers we can think of. Sounds OK but there is flip-side as well. I have, and I am not pleased with what I see and read. There is this other thread (I was stupid enough to post a few things.) where the same phenomen do surface: it does not matter if we are good Christians as long as we are good Catholics and the “rules” are more important then what they mean.
In my way of thinking, and I do know that not all will agree, we are first and foremost Christians who follow what Christ did teach us, and on His teachings there is a church who continue His work. That is fine and not bad at all. But, yes, there is always a but, (and I am still aware of the fact that the word “but” has two meanings) for almost 2000 years the church we call “Catholic” which mean “universal” as we all know, been forced to adapt to new things, to a absolutely new world, and that have, as we all also know, not always gone as it should have. And nobody can deny that there are indeed some “man made” rules among every passage. They should be based on The Bible but that is impossible. The Bible does not have any answers for abortion, driving when drinking, euthanasia, porn (?) and many others things. If someone start looking for what The Bible say about driving after one to much that someone will be reading The Bible a long time because there is nothing that would fit that problem. That is no problem as if we recognize the problem. And that is why we, in my mind, and HO, must first be Christians, then we can call us Catholics, if we don’t do it that order we do worship a thick book, the CCC. We belong to the [universal] Church founded by Christ Himself and we call it Catholic because it is universal. So we are not Catholics, in a way, we are “Universalists”. The best “rule” we have is what Christ did teach us, “love your neighbour as you love yourself”, that is the law and that is the rule. If we forget this and start digging around thousands and thousands books we lose sight. We don’t see the forest because there are to many trees. Conclusion: a Sacrament given as God want and received in good faith is valid to full extent. No “earthly” mistake will wipe away that.
And all of you who think I am against The RCC are wrong. My love for The RCC is why I want to defend it and it’s faith when I see or get, as someone did point out, wrongly, am under “a impression” are wrong. I am a Christian, practicing my [universal] Catholic faith all the way. That is what I have always done and most likely always will. The only “impression” I am guilty of is blind faith and the fact that no matter what, God does not punish anyone, or wipe away, the effect of a Sacrament given in good faith, or in a situation where there is not time or all the things needed to administer a Sacrament to it’s full extent. What a priest give and do is always “in Christi persona”, or should be, and is therefore always valid, even if the priest may not do it right, or for some other reason, not act as expected. One who receive a Sacrament in good faith, without a knowledge that he/she may not be worthy this blessing, The Sacrament, will always, and this is my privat thought, and I can’t see why I would be wrong, is valid if one think it is.
