What’s the Significance [if any] of: Jesus, “the Key’s” and Peter?

Another I AM a Catholic Lesson

by Pat Miron

John 1: 40-43 “And Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who had heard of John, and followed him. He findeth first his brother Simon, and saith to him: We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And Jesus looking upon him, said: Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is interpreted Peter.”

Matthew16: 18-19 “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, {singular} and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee {singular} the keys {all of them implied} of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.”

Matthew 7: 16-28 “By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them. Not everyone that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock, And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock. … And every one that heareth these my words, and doth them not, shall be like a foolish man that built his house upon the sand, And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof. And it came to pass when Jesus had fully ended these words, the people were in admiration at his doctrine. For he was teaching them as one having power, and not as the scribes and Pharisees”

John.21 Verses 15 to 17 “When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”

“A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”

“He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”

[QUOTE]Posted:
“The curious thing about the faith is that it claims only infallibility, not impeccability. The Church is promised that the Holy Spirit will make sure that the Church does not, in its doctrinal formulations, pervert the Faith. But that’s it. She is not promised that her members will never sin, nor that her prudential judgment will never err or be influenced by cowardice… ” by Mark Shea [/QUOTE]

This is no subtle teaching; it’s a ROCK verses Sand foundation to discover God’s Truths. Not everything proclaimed by “the Church” has the Power of the Holy Spirit and Jesus Himself behind it. Only matters that must be believed that are Faith related and Morals have God’s own warranty:

Mt. 16: 19 “And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven”

John 17: 17-19 “Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. And for them do I sanctify myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth. “
Mt. 28: 19-20 “Going therefore, teach YOU all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded YOU: and behold I am with YOU all days, even to the consummation of the world.”

Friends, in the entire world no other Faith has these Godly commitments and unfailing promises. And yet other feel compelled to challenge them, to modify them, and to even ignore them in advocating their own man-made religions. Each and all of which, whether recognized or not aim to contradict God and God’s Truths and God’s Church.

Just as Yahweh choose one man to lead His Old Testament Chosen People Exodus 6:7; so Christ, the same One God; Choose also one man to lead and be accountable only and directly to Him. Yahweh choose Noah, Abraham, Moses, the Judges, the Kings like David and the Prophets like Isaiah; why then is it so difficult [a rhetorical question] to grasp that Jesus was only following His own OT tradition, in choosing one man. That man being Peter to lead and to Govern His one New Faith, in and through His One True Church.
Would you like a Spiritual awakening? Read carefully and prayerfully John 17: 11-26. Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with His Wisdom. God is Perfect Wisdom choose always and every time and everywhere, just One set of Faith beliefs. Because truth is, as it must be; be singular.

Pope Benedict said it well: “there cannot [an impossibility] be your truth and my truths or there would be no truth.” And it is equally impossible that God {ALL Good things Perfected}; could have, would have or did wait 1,000 years for the Great Eastern Schism, or 1,400-1,500 years for the Protestant Reformation-Schism led by former Catholic priest named Wycliffe, Calvin and Luther. No, God is consistent, even if these men are not. Lest I be accused here of prejudiced; I hasten to point out that Catholic “practices” have always been changeable; while both Doctrines and Dogmas are not.

God has one set of Key’s to Heaven gates; which He choose to give to Peter; and through Peter to his successors by absolute necessity:

Mt. 10:1-8 “And having called his twelve disciples together, he gave them power over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of diseases, and all manner of infirmities. And the names of the twelve apostles are these: The first, Simon who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the publican, and James the son of Alpheus, and Thaddeus, Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him. These twelve Jesus sent: commanding them, saying: Go ye not into the way of the Gentiles, and into the city of the Samaritans enter ye not. But go ye rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. And going, preach, saying: The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers, cast out devils: freely have you received, freely give.”

So from a mandate to go “only to the house of Israel; to what we see here; Now YOU god to the entire world; and teach them what I taught to YOU….”

Mark 16:14-15 “At length he appeared to the eleven as they were at table: and he upbraided them with their incredulity and hardness of heart, because they did not believe them who had seen him after he was risen again. And he said to them: Go YOU into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”
Matthew 28: 19-20 “Going therefore, teach YOU all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded YOU: and behold I am with YOU all days, even to the consummation of the world.”
Friends, there is no lack of charity nor a lack of clarity here. This is the God we claim to know, Love and Serve, the question then seems to be: DO WE DO IT G OD’S WAY OR THE WAY WE PREFER, THE WAY WE LIKE? … WWJD? Amen.

One True God
One set of Keys given to Peter and his Successors
One set of God’s true Faith
And One Church

Homosexuality & the Bible REPOSTED by Kevin DeYoung

Book Review: What Does The Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality?

by David Qaoud
It is no longer acceptable to be a Christian and likewise completely ignorant of the ramifications behind homosexuality. More specifically, it is not okay to be ignorant of what the Bible says about homosexuality. It has become the issue of our day. Yet, many Christians — including me, before I read this book — don’t exactly have a pin-point grasp of what the Scriptures actually teach.

So, what do we do?

Well, here’s where we start: Kevin DeYoung is one on my favorite writers and I got this book for free from Crossway as apart of the Beyond The Page program. There you go — full-discloure right off the bat. But with that said, my honest assessment follows. I’m not required to say anything nice, but after reading the book, I can’t help but do so. And I think most Christians would agree.

Speaking of DeYoung, he has been known to take complicated and controversial issues and shed light on them in a biblical, winsome, clear, and helpful way. That’s one of the things he’s known for, and certainly does that in What Does The Bible Really Teach About Homosexuality? Right from the get-go, he tells us the main purpose of the book: “Along with most Christians around the globe and virtually every Christian in the first nineteen-and-a-half centuries of church history, I believe the Bible places homosexual behavior—no matter the level of commitment or mutual affection—in the category of sexual immorality. Why I believe this is the subject of the rest of this book.”

And that’s the subject of the rest of this review.

The First Five Chapters: Ruthlessly Biblical and Unapologetic

The first five chapters are devoted to DeYoung simply saying what the Bible says on the matter. In five chapters, he deals with six primary texts from the Old and New Testaments that relate to homosexuality: Genesis 1–2 and 19; Leviticus 18 and 20; Romans 1; 1 Corinthians 6; and 1 Timothy 1. Over and over again DeYoung just flat out tells us what the Bible says on the manner, and doesn’t apologize for being up front:

“I believe the Bible places homosexual behavior — not matter the level of commitment or mutual affection — in the category of sexual immorality.”
“It’s hard not to conclude from a straightforward reading of Genesis 1-2 that the divine design for sexual intimacy . . . is for one man and one woman.”
“Homosexual practice is a serious sin and a violation of God’s created order.”
“There is nothing ambiguous about the biblical witness concerning homosexual behavior.”
“It cannot be overstated how seriously the Bible takes the sin of homosexuality.”
“Let me be blunt: the Bible says nothing good about homosexual practice.”
The book is filled with pithy phrases, but perhaps the one he frequents the most is “divine design.” But he’s never overly explicit. No, he’s a sympathetic pastor. He asks the hard questions. He’s willing to listen to arguments of his opponents. But, again, he continues to go back to this question: How did God design marriage and for who? In DeYoung’s eyes, homosexuality is a distortion of God’s divine design for marriage, and a sin no matter how you look at the issue.

Answering Objections: Sympathetic and Winsome

In the last five chapters of the book, DeYoung takes time to answer some of the common arguments of homosexual practice, which he says are:

The Bible hardly mentions homosexuality.
The cultural distance argument (What the Bible says is homosexuality is different from what the Revisionist call homosexuality).
What about gluttony and divorce? (As if to say that gluttony and divorce should be in the same category as homosexuality).
The church is supposed to be a place for broken people.
Being on the wrong side of history.
It’s not fair.
The God I worship is a God of love (That is — that because God is love — we can just overlook homosexuality because, after all, he is a God of love).
As you might expect, DeYoung answers all of these questions well with truth, but also with grace. DeYoung’s tone is never off-putting or harsh. He never says anything in a put-down kind-of-way. Throughout the whole book his tone is humble and admirable. I guess I should’ve known this was coming when he said in the beginning, “Being convinced about homosexuality is great, but the right conclusions can be handled in the wrong way. Focusing on other people’s sins, while ignoring our own, would be the wrong way.”

This aside, I’m simply not convinced he’s going to win over a lot of skeptics. If anything, he probably just caused more of a ruckus. The reason is because all of his arguments, as you might expect, are straight from the Bible. If you are a Christian and love the Bible, you are going to be very pleased with this book. If you remotely skeptical of the Bible, you are simply not going to like this book. It’s just that simple.

Honest Assessment

Here’s my favorite quote from the book: “Desire must never be given the priority over obedience. Intense longings does not turn sinful wrongs into civil rights.” This he used in the topic of same-sex attraction. Yes, we may have feelings and thoughts that we sometimes can’t control, but for the follower of Jesus Christ, obedience should trump feelings. Though feelings matter, but they should never take precedence over obedience.

Just as a heads up, though, this book is not meant to be comprehensive. That is — DeYoung does not take the time to answer every nagging question about homosexuality. He doesn’t take that much time to speak on how to deal with this pastorally, practically, or culturally either. The main gist of this book is exactly what the title suggests: What do the Scriptures say about homosexuality? And he does so well. Very well, might I add.

In the end, this is an excellent book on what the Bible actually teaches on this pressing topic. I’m glad that it was both a short read an easy one. I’m not sure that it will covert many skeptics, but the Christian who reads it should feel informed, helped, encouraged, and prepared to teach others what the Bible actually teaches on this weighty topic. I highly recommend it.

Wanna be a True Friend Of Jesus? by Pat Miron

Wanna be a “friend” of Jesus?

Another I AM a Catholic Lesson
by Pat Miron

John.15:14 “You are my friends if you do what I command you.”

If we truly what to be a friend of Jesus it seems both reasonable and prudent to ask oneself “what must I do to make it happen”; knowing that it is not all what I do, but very importantly, what Jesus would have me do, and what Jesus will permit me to do, and what Jesus will do for me.
One of the most amazing facts that can be known to mankind, is the fact that Jesus desires to be a “friend of ours”, much more ardently, much more zealously than we seek Him.
Matt.16: 24 “Then Jesus told his disciples, “If any man would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me”

Friendship always demands a price. It has been said that Cf “we are more likely to be ‘hurt’ by our friends than by our casual acquaintances.” This might be because it is normal to spend more time with those we like, and or, we tend to be more open and frank with these personal relationships, or that we just spend more time with our friends and therefore are more likely to mess up?. It’s not unusual for dear friends to be made accountable for the decisions effecting both parties. And so it is with any relationship between us and Jesus. Friends “ask” and perhaps even demand certain things as the conditional price of their friendship.

Jesus, however, seems to have a “strange” way; an unusual condition for “friendship” with Him: Rev.3:19 “Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance. “
Jesus shares here a couple of demands on the price of friendship with Him: IF we are going to decide to follow Him” it will be on His terms; His conditions; His teachings in total, It can be no other way.

Lk. 9: 22-25 “Saying: The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the ancients and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and the third day rise again. And he said to all: If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life, shall lose it; for he that shall lose his life for my sake, shall save it. For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, and cast away himself?”

From the examples of Noah, the Egyptian plagues, Sodom and Gomorrah, King David, and the three-time destruction of the Synagogue in Jerusalem, making the Hebrew Nation “a captive state;” of the Egyptians, the Babylonians, and the Roman’s; and then being called back by God to His Friendship; the example of Peter who denied Christ three times and was forgiven and granted “all of the Key’s to Christ Kingdom” after recanting in deep sorrow and contrition models for us, what Christ demands IF we ARE to be His Friend.

John 21: 7-17 “That disciple therefore whom Jesus loved, said to Peter: It is the Lord. Simon Peter, when he heard that it was the Lord, girt his coat about him, (for he was naked,) and cast himself into the sea. But the other disciples came in the ship, (for they were not far from the land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes. As soon then as they came to land, they saw hot coals lying, and a fish laid thereon, and bread. Jesus saith to them: Bring hither of the fishes which you have now caught. Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, one hundred and fifty-three. And although there were so many, the net was not broken. Jesus saith to them: Come, and dine. And none of them who were at meat, durst ask him: Who art thou? knowing that it was the Lord. And Jesus cometh and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish in like manner. This is now the third time that Jesus was manifested to his disciples, after he was risen from the dead. When therefore they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter: Simon son of John, lovest thou me more than these? He saith to him: Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him: Feed my lambs. …He saith to him again: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? He saith to him: Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee. He saith to him: Feed my lambs. … He said to him the third time: Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved, because he had said to him the third time: Lovest thou me? And he said to him: Lord, thou knowest all things: thou knowest that I love thee. He said to him: Feed my sheep.”

Luke 12:4-5 “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has power to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear him

From the book: Jesus, King of Love by Fr. Mateo Crawley-Boevey.

“Sanctity is Jesus assimilated.”

“We are greatly mistaken if we think the value of an act depends on the act itself. It is worth only the love we put into it.”

“There are three loves which really constitute but one, namely: Love of the Eucharist, Love of the Cross and Love of Souls. You cannot separate them, nor can you have one to the exclusion of the others.”

“Opposition has always been and ever will be the divine seal upon all works…Such storms have never ruined a work dear to God, when the thoughts of the apostle were inspired by the great spirit of faith.”

In speaking of many Christians attitude toward Jesus and faith: “Remain in Your Tabernacle, O Lord, that we may live our family life as we wish, without Your intruding too intimately upon it.”

“Love is not loved. We do not sufficiently preach the love of Jesus Christ, and yet this love is not weak sentimentality. It is a love full of fire and life!”

“Call to the Master, hearken to Him and you will witness resurrections even more marvelous than that of Lazarus and conversions as wonderful and touching as that of Magdalen.

[QUOTE]We are chosen by Christ to be His friends! How amazing is that! Being His friend means uniting our suffering in this life to His suffering. It means being different from most. It means being rejected sometimes. It means crucifying our self-will. On the flip side of that, we have assurance of His love, His mercy, His guidance, His strength..I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength! (Philippians 4:13) We can go out into the world with such confidence with Jesus as our strength. We must not draw back from our appointment by Christ – to “go and bear fruit that will remain.” This world is so thirsty for Him right now, and the world doesn’t even know it. It is so hungry, yet nothing it eats satisfies. We need to be bold witnesses of our Faith – of the Love of Christ that lives in our hearts! We also need to offer every suffering, every prayer for the conversion of souls! Let not one be lost, Dear Lord! “ [/QUOTE]

Love, even God’s love can be conditional. I MUST be careful here because God NEVER stops loving us, no matter who we are, where we are or what we are or what we have done; or perhaps failed to do. Such is the Love of God. BUT to be a FRIEND of Christ; that is where the conditions pop in. Towards the goal of developing true Friendship with Christ; He choose to found; to establish just His One True Church. Today’s Catholic Church [both historically and biblically provable], with just One Set of Faith beliefs [Ephesians 4:1-7], and to BOND this Friendship; Christ Instituted His Seven Sacraments as a direct means of the Grace man needs to “be holy as I AM Holy”[1 Peter 1:16]; from Known forgiveness of all of our Confessed sins; to Jesus actually being Present to us in Catholic Holy Communion; these gifts are LIGHTS to show us the way to the “Truth, the Way and the Life”: [John 14:16]. Jesus choose to have just One Church with One set of Faith beliefs to simplify man’s options and choices. With “just one” we can know if we are on the right path or not. So do we choose God’s way; or some other path? Do we CHOOSE Friendship with God; or choose to merely muse about it and do “it my way?” Do we REALLY desire Friendship with Christ? It has to be done HIS WAY!

Today is the feast of St. Louis de Montfort. Demontfort (31 January 1673 – 28 April 1716) was a French priest whose work, True Devotion to Mary ( http://www.amazon.com/True-Devotion-Mary-Louis-DeMontfort/dp/B000J0V2KI/ref=sr_1_12?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1398689341&sr=1-12&keywords=a+true+devotion+to+mary ) , is still generally thought to be the best single volume on devotion to the Blessed Mother.

Saint John Paul the Great once recalled how, as a young seminarian, he “read and reread [True Devotion to Mary] many times and with great spiritual profit. … Then I understood that I could not exclude the Lord’s Mother from my life without neglecting the will of God-Trinity.” [1] ( http://www.zeitun-eg.org/jp2.htm )

Here are 5 quotes from Demontfort from that book.

1.
“With the whole Church I acknowledge that Mary, being a mere creature fashioned by the hands of God is, compared to his infinite majesty, less than an atom, or rather is simply nothing, since he alone can say, ‘I am he who is’. (14)

2.
“Satan fears her not only more than angels and men but in a certain sense more than God himself. This does not mean that the anger, hatred and power of God are not infinitely greater than the Blessed Virgin’s, since her attributes are limited. It simply means that Satan, being so proud, suffers infinitely more in being vanquished and punished by a lowly and humble servant of God, for her humility humiliates him more than the power of God.”(52)
3.
“When the Holy Spirit, her spouse, finds Mary in a soul, he hastens there and enters fully into it. He gives himself generously to that soul according to the place it has given to his spouse.” (36)

4.
“Mary is the Queen of heaven and earth by grace as Jesus is king by nature and by conquest. But as the kingdom of Jesus Christ exists primarily in the heart or interior of man, according to the words of the Gospel, “The kingdom of God is within you”, so the kingdom of the Blessed Virgin is principally in the interior of man, that is, in his soul. It is principally in souls that she is glorified with her Son more than in any visible creature. So we may call her, as the saints do, Queen of our hearts.” (38)

5.
“She is so full of love that no one who asks for her intercession is rejected, no matter how sinful he may be. The saints say that it has never been known since the world began that anyone had recourse to our Blessed Lady, with trust and perseverance, and was rejected.”(85)

https://danardoyle.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/unknown-1.jpeg&h=177 I’ve been reading a book called Jesus, King of Love by Fr. Mateo Crawley-Boevey. You know, I never really enjoyed reading as a kid. The only books I remember reading and enjoying were Judy Blume books. Do you remember those? Well, I think I didn’t enjoy reading, because I never found a genre I liked. Finally, I have. I like biography, Catholic nonfiction, and real life inspirational stories. I underline the words that “speak to me” so that I can go back and re-read those parts. Still, sad to say, I rarely finish a book. I’m a hopeless case:)

Anyway, this book I’m reading is filled with wisdom from Fr. Mateo: https://danardoyle.files.wordpress.com/2015/05/unknown.jpeg&h=205

Transubstantiation by any other name by Father John A Hardon S. J.

THANK YOU FATHER John A. Hardon S.J.

WRONG
CONSUBSTANTIATION. The belief, contrary to Catholic doctrine, that in the Eucharist the body and blood of Christ coexist with the bread and wine after the Consecration of the Mass. John Wyclif (1324-84) and Martin Luther (1483-1546) professed consubstantiation because they denied transubstantiation.

WRONG
TRANSIGNIFICATION. The view of Christ’s presence in the Eucharist which holds that the meaning or significance of the bread and wine is changed by the words of consecration. The consecrated elements are said to signify all that Christians associate with the Last Supper; they have a higher value than merely food for the body. The theory of transignification was condemned by Pope Paul VI in the encyclical Mysterium Fidei (1965), if it is understood as denying transubstantiation. (Etym. Latin trans-, so as to change + signicatio, meaning, sense: transignificatio.) See also TRANSFINALIZATION

WRONG
TRANSFINALIZATION. The view of Christ’s presence in the Eucharist that the purpose or finality of the bread and wine is changed by the words of consecration. They are said to serve a new function, as sacred elements that arouse the faith of the people in the mystery of Christ’s redemptive love. Like transignification, this theory was condemned by Pope Paul VI in the encyclical Mysterium Fidei (1965) if transfinalization is taken to deny the substantial change of bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. (Etym. Latin trans-, so as to change +finis, end; purpose.)

RIGHT
TRANSUBSTANTIATION. The complete change of the substance of bread and wine into the substance of Christ’s body and blood by a validly ordained priest during the consecration at Mass, so that only the accidents of bread and wine remain. While the faith behind the term was already believed in apostolic times, the term itself was a later development. With the Eastern Fathers before the sixth century, the favored expression was meta-ousiosis “change of being”; the Latin tradition coined the word transubstantiatio, “change of substance,” which was incorporated into the creed of the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215. The Council of Trent, in defining the “wonderful and singular conversion of the whole substance of the bread into the body, and the whole substance of the wine into the blood” of Christ, added “which conversion the Catholic Church calls transubstantiation” (Denzinger 1652). After transubstantiation, the accidents of bread and wine do not inhere in any subject or substance whatever. Yet they are not make-believe; they are sustained in existence by divine power. (Etym. Latin trans-, so as to change + substantia, substance: transubstantiatio, change of substance.)
