At the college I am at, we have a VERY liberal newman center. I don’t mind, because there is a completely conservative church very near to our campus. The Deacon there gave the best sermon I have ever heard in my life. Unfortunately I was up till 630 this morning :D, so i had to go to 7 pm mass at the newman center.
Anyway, tonight the priest talked about how he gets mad that his diocesan paper had an article about mortal sin. His entire sermon was that because God is constantly forgiving, one who has a mortal sin on his concious will not go to hell. He basically stated that HIS God would not be so unforgiving. Is it just me, or should he not be teaching that schismatic dribble to a congregation? I know that that is not what the Catholic Church teaches. He also brushed off any dissention by saying that he didn’t want to argue using the Catechism and Scipture.
I was furious. How can he so blatantly do away with Church Teaching? It shouldn’t matter what he THINKS HIS God is like, it should only matter what God truly is and how he truly acts. He appealed to these people’s sense of emotion instead of telling them how dire sin truly is.
My question is, should I confront him about it and express my disapproval? I know someone already has, do you think my doing it would be overkill?
