Modern-day Jansenism


#1

Are there any modern-day groups, organisations, etc. who either CALL themselves Jansenists, or else have strong Jansenist leanings?

I am interested to see whether or not actual Jansenists have a foothold in modern society.

Thank you!

lol … yeah you noticed it too.

Jansenism is no longer something that is heard of in an official way. However, the effects of Jansenism are wide. Many pius persons are guilty of this problem because they do have a tendency of thinking that the flesh is in some way evil or that some sins are so bad that they cannot be forgiven or there are beliefs out there that hold that things that are not sinful in themselves are sinfull such as drinking beer (for instance). All such things are effects of Jansenism and by no means is this list inclusive of all the problems.
