Shouldn’t the world be given another chance now before it ends. I mean, isn’t the modern apostasy FORGIVABLE?
I think it is.
Why? Let me summarize the last 2000 years.
First Jews kill Christians, then pagans kill Christians. Then pagans kill Jews. Then for a brief period, Christians force pagans to convert.
Then Muslims kill Christians. Later Christians kill Muslims. Then Catholics kill heretics. And sometimes heretics fight back. Then most bishop become hypocrites, so like a third of Christendom tells bishops to go take a hike, then Catholics kill Protestants, and Protestants kill Catholics and then Protestants kill amongst themselves.
Is it any wonder people got sick of religion? I don’t think so.
Therefore, is the world so utterly unforgivable and incurable when it says it doesn’t need religion?
Therefore, shouldn’t God be able to restore them to faith?
First they say, we don’t need Peter. Then they say, neither do we need the other bishops. Then they say we don’t even need Scripture, finally they say we don’t even need religion at all.
So God says, OK, find out the hard way.
The world almost ends, because of the apostasy, and then they come back. They say, we need religion, we need Jesus and the Bible, we need Bishops, we need Peter. And if the peace lasts like a thousand years, then humanity might deserve to fry forever if they fall away again.
I mean, now, they have an excuse. But after the reconciliation of Christians and a glorious age of peace, they clearly won’t have an excuse.
This is why i find the Fundamentalists’, “Jesus is coming back soon” to be hard hearted.
I don’t think God is finished with the world.
Do any Catholics agree with me? Can I hear an Amen?
