The First Stone

A lesson that I think most of us need to be reminded of…

Jn 8:3 – 11 Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle. They said to him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?”They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger.But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them, “Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he bent down and wrote on the ground. And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the elders. So he was left alone with the woman before him. Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?” She replied, “No one, sir.” Then Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go, and from now on do not sin any more.”

Some of the things that that will get you into Hell…

Groping a woman                                   

Missing Mass without good reason

Receiving The Eucharist while in a state of mortal sin or otherwise unworthily

Sex outside of marriage

Adultery

Taking the name of the Lord in vain

Having and abortion

Performing an abortion

Encouraging someone to have an abortion

Supporting abortion in any way

Stealing

Excessive use of alcohol…

Or recreational drugs

Gossiping, spreading rumors and besmirching someone’s reputation

Engaging in or supporting homosexual activity

Pornography

Using contraception

Not forgiving

Judging the state of a person’s soul

Lust

Gluttony

Greed

Sloth

Wrath

Envy

Pride

Mt 7:5You hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.

Lk 6:42  How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me remove that splinter in your eye,’ when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye? You hypocrite! Remove the wooden beam from your eye first; then you will see clearly to remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.

Mt 6:12 Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…

We are outraged at the actions of someone else while someone else would be outraged at our own actions. In fact, we would be outraged at someone else performing our own actions. The only difference is that they did it instead of us.

A stone will break a window, but it will also break a mirror. Perhaps we need fewer windows and more mirrors…

We are all sinners.

We are all broken.

We are all saveable.

What Atheists Believe

Personally, I would prefer to believe in a “magical sky daddy**” than an “everything that came from nothing” daddy. 

“I don’t believe in God?” “God does not exist.” What do people mean when they say these things? Often, people who say this do not really understand what Catholics mean by the proposition “God exists.” So, when dealing with atheists, it becomes very important to clarify, “What do you mean by God?” What do you mean by “exist?” You may find out that the atheist is rejecting a phantom, a “god” Catholics also reject.

**Which, by the way, is not who we believe God is…

What About Hell? – The Other Place

Asked about people who do not believe in Hell, St Pio replied – “They will believe in it where they get there”

Probably the two most successful tricks of the Devil to get souls off of the road to Heaven and onto the road to Hell are:

  1. Convince you that there is no Devil and
  2. Convince you that there is no Hell

Once he has succeeded in doing one or both of those two things, it’s pretty much a slam dunk you will end up there.

“Well, what if there isn’t a Devil or Hell?” Well, if there isn’t, then neither of us have anything to worry about.

But, what if there IS? Well then, at least one of us has EVERYTHING to worry about.

What Is An Atheist vs An Agnostic?

I was in a discussion about God the other day with a young person who considers himself and atheist. Early on in the discussion he stated that he didn’t know if God exists, but conceded that He might.

At the point where he revealed that he is an atheist, I suggested that he was agnostic rather than atheist because he didn’t know for sure one way or the other. He was adamant that he was atheist because an atheist is one who really doesn’t care one way or the other.

A bit more back and forth ensued, and he left the conversation “knowing” that he was right and I was wrong.

Sigh…

This got me to thinking that there may be others out there who might need some clarification…

From Webster:

Definition of atheist

:a person who does not believe in the existence of a god or any gods :one who subscribes to or advocates atheism

How agnostic Differs from atheist

Many people are interested in distinguishing between the words agnostic and atheist. The difference is quite simple: atheist refers to someone who believes that there is no god (or gods), and agnostic refers to someone who doesn’t know whether there is a god, or even if such a thing is knowable. This distinction can be troublesome to remember, but examining the origins of the two words can help.

Agnostic first appeared in 1869, (possibly coined by the English biologist Thomas Henry Huxley), and was formed from the Greek agnōstos (meaning “unknown, unknowable”). Atheist came to English from the French athéisme. Although both words share a prefix (which is probably the source of much of the confusion) the main body of each word is quite different. Agnostic shares part of its history with words such as prognosticate and prognosis, words which have something to do with knowledge or knowing something. Atheist shares roots with words such as theology and theism, which generally have something to do with God.

More Sheen On Truth

“Christ said, not a single iota of the truth He gave was to be changed, then by what right do we sit in judgment on Divinity and say: This much of Your truth we will accept, because it pleases us, and this much we will reject? We are not the creators of divine truth; we are only the trustees and the guardians. God’s truths are not optional any more than the right to happiness is optional; they are not debatable any more than the multiplication table is debatable. Any sect which starts with the assumption that it has rights over God’s truth proves that it is man-made, and a religion that is man-made can be man-unmade. But a Church which is God-made cannot be man-unmade.” — Archbishop Fulton Sheen (Seven Pillars of Peace)

Blood and Water

“When the Roman soldier stuck the spear into the side of Christ, both blood and water flowed out from His side. This represents three very significant theological truths:

“1. Blood and water (afterbirth) are always present at the birth of a new child.
2. The blood and water flowing from His side also represent Baptism and the Eucharist, the two sacraments which unite mankind to Christ.
“3. The Jewish temple had a small stream flowing through it, which removed the blood of the sacrificed animals from the temple. Jesus is our new Temple in the New Jerusalem (Revelation 21:22), so the blood and water flowing from His side invoke this temple imagery as well.

“Archbishop Sheen once said that the spearing of Jesus on the cross reminds us of the angel with the flaming sword at the gate of Paradise as well. It seems that in order for man to reenter Paradise, it is necessary for the angel to strike us with the sword. Here Jesus physically undergoes stabbing, while Mary undergoes a spiritual stabbing as well (Simeon told Mary in Luke 2:35 that “a sword will pierce through your own soul also, that thoughts out of many hearts may be revealed”). For the rest of us, the stabbing with the sword is all of our suffering in this life, something that Peter said was required of us all (1 Peter 5:9).” – Ray Sullivan
