- For our protection we all have a DIVINELY GIVEN COMMAND to test all thing. 1 Thess.5:21 + Acts 17:11 + 1 John 2:26-27.
This is NOT a suggestion from God but a COMMAND OF GOD for every Christian!!!
The Catholic Church has THE best doctrines of salvation. We even can say concerning our doctrines of salvation, we have the fullness of the truth.
Yet many – many Catholics believe some form of a “do it yourself salvation” described in Gal. 1:6-9. For what reason???
The Church doing her duty:- Teaching the fullness of the truth about salvation.
Our “uninvited guests/darnel (Matt.13:24-30, 36-43)” are doing their duty:- Teaching lies/false doctrines about salvation. – 2 Pet.2:1-3.
We should be doing our duty:- Obey God’s COMMAND as described in 1 Thess.5:21 + Acts 17:11 + 1John 2:26-27.
Allowing us the ability to distinguish between the Church’s doctrines and the false doctrines of the false apostles. (2 Cor.11:13-15; 2 Pet.2:1-3)
REFER TO MATTHEW 13:24-30, 36-43; 2 Cor.11:13-15; 2 Pet.2:1-3:-
The false apostles will be among us UNTIL the harvest.
Please see the answer above.
ONLY GOD IS THE JUDGE OF THAT!!!
Please study Matt.13:24-30, 36-43.
“He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ The servants said to him, ‘Do you want us then to go and gather them up?’
But He said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the darnels you also uproot the wheat with them.
‘Let both grow together until the harvest, and at that time of harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather together the darnels and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.” End quote.
As you see JamesTheJust, Satan’s “undercover agents” stay with us until the harvest. But this is NOT the worst news.
The worst news is:- At the end the situation will be more destructive.
“For false christs and false prophets will arise … so as to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” Please see: Matt.24:4-5, 11, 24; 2 Thess.2:4-12; 1 Tim.4:1-3.
There is no illiteracy today. Only Bible illiteracy, mostly among us Catholics. It is common knowledge, that we are far the most Bible illiterates among all Christians.
Quote: Exactly! The Church never teach heresy.
It is not what the Church teaches that we have to worry about.
2 Pet.2:1-3; “But there were also FALSE PROPHETS AMONG THE PEOPLE, even as there will be FALSE TEACHERS AMONG YOU, who will SECRETLY bring in destructive heresies, … And many will follow their destructive ways, …”
If we don’t obey God’s command given to us for our protection in 1 Thess.5:21 + Acts 17:11 + 1 John 2:26-27 then we are not able to distinguish between Church teaching and the teaching of “our uninvited guests.” Their identity is REPEATEDLY described throughout the Scripture.
- Quote: CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY, DEI VERBUM 21
The Church has always VENERATED the divine Scriptures JUST AS she VENERATED the body of the Lord, since, especially in the sacred liturgy, she unceasingly receives and offers to the faithful THE BREAD OF LIFE from the table of BOTH of GOD’S WORD and of CHRIST’S BODY.
For in the sacred books, the Father who is in heaven meets His children with great love and speaks with them; and THE FORCE AND POWER IN THE WORD OF GOD IS SO GREAT THAT IT STANDS AS THE SUPPORT AND ENERGY OF THE CHURCH, THE STRINGS OF FAITH for Her (children), THE FOOD OF THE SOUL, THE PURE AND EVERLASTING SOURCE OF SPIRITUAL LIFE.
“For the WORD OF GOD IS LIVING AND ACTIVE” (Hebr.4:12) and it HAS THE POWER TO BUILD YOU UP and give you your heritage among all those who are sanctified. (Acts 20:32) End quote.
THE WORD OF GOD referred to as the “BREAD OF LIFE” in direct association with a reference to the Eucharist.
We have access and we are able to eat the “BREAD OF LIFE” in TWO ways: The Church offers the faithful the bread of life FROM THE EUCHARISTIC table of BOTH of GOD’S WORD and CHRIST’S BODY.
When in faith, we are READING or HEARING the Word of God we are consuming the BREAD OF LIFE, in which He (Jesus), Himself is consumed and we unite ourselves to Christ.
[CCC 108]; Still, the Christian faith is not a “religion of the book.”
Christianity is a religion of the “Word” of God, “not a written and mute word, but incarnate and living.”
If the Scriptures are not remain a dead letter, Christ, the eternal Word of the living God, must, through the Holy Spirit, “open [our] minds to understand the Scriptures.”
Luke 24:45 also states:- “He then opened their minds to understand the Scriptures.”
THE SPIRITUAL POSITION OF THE BODY OF CHRIST:-
Every Born Again Christian is on the spiritual position of the Body of Christ.
Every Born Again Christian, by relying on the teaching of the Holy Spirit able to understand the Word of God. – John 14:17, 26; John 16:13-15; 1 John 2:26-27.
The spiritual position of the Body of Christ is described in 1 Cor.2:12-13, 15-16. Please see also: 1 John 2:26-27.
As we see above:- Every Born Again Christian with the aid of the Holy Spirit able to understand the Word of God.
It is absolutely unthinkable that God didn’t open the minds of His children to understand His Word and didn’t give His children the aid of the Holy Spirit to teach them all things, because if not, His Word could never build His children up and his word would remain dead words for His children.
The origin of the teaching that God’s children are not able to understand the Word of their Father is described in 2 Pet.2:1-3. – Secretly brought in destructive heresy. Serve only the interests of our “uninvited guests.”
With love in Christ,
