Catholic Call to Action and Christianity 101

James Hacker: Humphrey, what’s a Mod­ernist in the Church of Eng­land?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: Ah, well, the word “Mod­ernist” is code for non-​believer.
James Hacker: You mean an athe­ist?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: No, Prime Min­is­ter. An athe­ist cler­gy­man couldn’t con­tinue to draw his stipend. So, when they stop believ­ing in God, they call them­selves “Modernists”.

Yes Prime Min­is­ter The Bishop’s Gam­bit 1986

Let your ‘Yes’ mean ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ mean ‘No.’ Any­thing more is from the evil one.

Matthew 5:37

Yes­ter­day I men­tioned an exchange with Catholic Call to action on twit­ter and their silence to the 64,000 ques­tion con­cern­ing Christ divin­ity, death and resurrection.

There are many dif­fer­ences and dis­agree­ments that exist both in the Catholic Church and even more between us and our Protes­tant broth­ers and sis­ters. The Dogma of Christ is the Son of God and the fact that he died and rose again is not one of them. There is no more basic belief in Chris­tian­ity than the idea that Christ died and rose from the dead. For any pro­fessed Chris­t­ian, let alone a catholic Group with a large staff and an inter­na­tional reach, the answer to that ques­tion should be so easy and auto­matic that it’s almost a waste of time to have to ask it.

23 Hours after I asked my ques­tion here they gave this answer:

Now I’m not a pro­fessed catholic orga­ni­za­tion with a big lead­er­ship team, chap­ters around the nation hold­ing national con­fer­ences with a list of keynote speak­ers and endorse­ments as famous a Chris­t­ian an ex-​president of the United States but I know this much:

Any chris­t­ian indi­vid­ual or orga­ni­za­tion whether Catholic or Protes­tant should give Catholic Call to Action the widest birth pos­si­ble because any orga­ni­za­tion that can’t clearly and with­out hes­i­ta­tion pro­claim: “Jesus Christ is the son of God and died and rose from the dead” yet claims to be “Catholic” can’t be trusted.

I’ll give the last word to the Apos­tle John:

Beloved, do not trust every spirit but test the spir­its to see whether they belong to God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowl­edges Jesus Christ come in the flesh belongs to God, and every spirit that does not acknowl­edge Jesus does not belong to God. This is the spirit of the antichrist that, as you heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world.

1 John 4:13

Sir Humphrey Appleby: Ah, well, the word “Modernist” is code for non-believer.
James Hacker: You mean an atheist?
Sir Humphrey Appleby: No, Prime Minister. An atheist clergyman couldn’t continue to draw his stipend. So, when they stop believing in God, they call themselves “Modernists”.

Matthew 5:37

Yesterday I mentioned an exchange with Catholic Call to action on twitter and their silence to the 64,000 question concerning Christ divinity, death and resurrection.

There are many differences and disagreements that exist both in the Catholic Church and even more between us and our Protestant brothers and sisters. The Dogma of Christ is the Son of God and the fact that he died and rose again is not one of them. There is no more basic belief in Christianity than the idea that Christ died and rose from the dead. For any professed Christian, let alone a catholic Group with a large staff and an international reach, the answer to that question should be so easy and automatic that it’s almost a waste of time to have to ask it.

23 Hours after I asked my question here they gave this answer:

Now I’m not a professed catholic organization with a big leadership team, chapters around the nation holding national conferences with a list of keynote speakers and endorsements as famous a Christian an ex-president of the United States but I know this much:

Any christian individual or organization whether Catholic or Protestant should give Catholic Call to Action the widest birth possible because any organization that can’t clearly and without hesitation proclaim: “Jesus Christ is the son of God and died and rose from the dead” yet claims to be “Catholic” can’t be trusted.

I’ll give the last word to the Apostle John:

Beloved, do not trust every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can know the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ come in the flesh belongs to God, and every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus does not belong to God. This is the spirit of the antichrist that, as you heard, is to come, but in fact is already in the world.
