Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

The importance of Christianity and the mass of Christ.

Pity that the Western world has descended into barbaric agnosticism and Marxism.

by StFerdIII

 

 

 

The 2000 year journey of Christianity continues. 1.2 Billion Catholics and over 1 Billion Protestants make up a vibrant and quite disparate community of Christ. While 'Western' states are largely secular, Marxist, Atheist and self-absorbed, large tracts of the planet are not. Christianity is without a doubt the most successful theology in human history and it is still growing. Marxism and Socialism are the most successful political-economic ideologies in history, though many would argue that both are teleological theologies, notwithstanding how absurd, bankrupted, immoral, coercive, and ignorant they both truly are. In any event the followers of the Jewish rabbi Christ have constructed and elaborated history's most dynamic and populous theology. It is not hard to understand why the Christian faith is still growing 2.000 years after the death of its founder.

 

If you study Christian liturgy, history and development, its success is both fascinating and logical. Christianity is a thoroughly blended mixture of faith and reason, and a set of ideals, philosophies and expectations that improves the material and spiritual life of the average human. There is no other religion which can remotely claim, that it demands and generates, both temporal and spiritual development in the manner that the followers of Christ do. No other historical religion has ever bequeathed the benefits to humanity that Catholic Christianity has. Protestant theology also has had its historical import, though today most Protestant churches outside of social and poor relief, are in decline and have become outlets for PC-Marxist dogma.

 

Why is the Catholic Church so important to humans and civilization ? Some reasons include:

 

-The right to Life: Christians covet and protect life in all of its forms – both human and natural. Rome mutated into Germanic kingdoms for many reasons, one of which was the Roman obsession with killing children and fetuses. Apparently this has a negative effect on birth rates and population growth. This barbaric practice is ardently pursued today by Feminazis and Marxists as a right to female convenience. Societies that engage in the pathological destruction of fetuses and children usually don't long survive.

 

-Simplicity: Whilst the Catholic Church by necessity, does have rites, sacraments and standards in mass, services and liturgy [otherwise chaos reigns], the Christian doctrine is remarkably straight-forward, complete, supported by rational arguments and devoid of physical and spiritual encumbrances.

 

-Gratitude: Love, faith, hope and humility are paramount attributes of the devout Christian. It all stems from gratitude. Gratitude for life, for nature, for the world, for living.

 

-The 4 Cardinal Virtues and 3 pieties: Prudence, temperance, justice, and fortitude are taught as the epitome of human behaviour. These virtues are matched by the spiritual demands of love, faith and hope. Without love, faith and hope, life itself is not worth living. No other theology teaches these 7 attributes.

 

-Free will and rationality: The Catholic Church demands that the human use his/her intellect, a God-given gift to understand the world and the mysteries of faith. Free-will comes from the grace of God and allows the person to choose which path they will follow. Without free-will, the ideas of freedom, progress, and civilization simply don't exist.

 

-Salvation from faith and good works: There is no pre-destination within CC theology. The salvific process is only achieved through the recognition of the grace of God, good works, and leading a Christian life. In other words good deeds in this life are rewarded in the eternal life.

 

-The 7 mercies or social justice:

1. To feed the hungry.

2. To give drink to the thirsty.

3. To clothe the naked.

4. To shelter the homeless.

5. To visit the imprisoned.

6. To visit the sick.

7.To bury the dead


[Caravaggio's 7 mercies ]

 

 

Without the Catholic Church, the modern welfare state would simply collapse.

 

-Civilizational development: Christians invented the modern world. There is no serious dispute about that. Inter-alia Christian Europe and America have bequeathed the following:

 

-Separation of church and state, and ideas about freedom, free-will, and human worth.

-Notions that there is a purpose to life and that history is not 'circular' and that progress is possible.

-Modern ideas about science, math, logic and rationality.

-The scientific method, heliocentricity, chemistry, physics, understanding of the human body, blood circulation, organ development and usage, and advanced medical techniques.

-The defeat of Islamic Jihad from the 7th to 19th centuries [and its modern day variant].

-Rotary motion, water, wind and animated power.

-Literally thousands of inventions between 500 AD and 1500 AD.

-Our ideas of art, culture, and beauty.

-Agricultural and Industrial revolutions [plural].

-Hospitals, schools, universities and the welfare state.

-Literacy, Carolingian script writing, modern books, libraries.

-Merging of pagan, or pre-Christian philosophies with Christianity [syncretic philosophy].

-Innovations in technology, the military, ship building, cathedral creation, glass manufacture, smithing, iron works and other industrial processes.

 

The list of Christian innovation is endless.

 

Christianity is today the world's most persecuted faith. In Moslem states Christians are pillaged, attacked, exiled and killed. The slaughter and desecration of Christians and their homes and places of worship abounds from the 'West Bank' to Nigeria. But there is nary a word from the lame-brain Western media, so obsessed with bigger topics like the right-to-abort, or your human right to have the state buy your condoms for you. Modern Western atheists and big-brains assume that the modern world was invented by Voltaire and Gibbon, with a few dashes of colour from Dickens and FDR. Before 1600 there was nothing but darkness......

 

In reality, the real dark age is today. GlobaloneyWarming. Relativity. Reality TV. Hollywood. The state uber alles. Forget your past and your culture, and your society will fail. When Western national bankruptcy arrives in each state – and it will – maybe then, a return to basics, values, and virtues might be possible. Then again, maybe the state, and their media-friends will simply blame the Christians and the Jews for the failure of Atheist-Socialism.

 

Merry Christmas.
