Man and God and Law

And thinking.

THOUGHT

Bertrand Russel brilliant mathematician philosopherBertrand Russel (pictured on the right), a brilliant mathematician philosopher, was an atheist. While C.S Lewis, professor at Oxford University, was teaching his students to think. He was an ex-atheist.

Bertrand Russel said, "Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth, more than ruin, more even than death." further on he says, "Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man."

C.S. Lewis (pictured below) is most popular these days for have written "The Chronicles of Narnia," (incidentally died the same day that president Kennedy was assassinated). J.F.K. was the first Catholic president, and as the crutch of this essay proceeds, was just one of most humans demonized by immoral sexuality . Some think J.F.K. to be trash, though he accomplished much in three short years.

C.S. Lewis wrote Chronicles of Narnia

C.S. Lewis was forced by family to attend Church regularly in native Ireland. Being young with an inquisitive mind he lamented that he was "very angry with God for not existing". Regarding that forced attendance at church he viewed that as "a chore and as a duty." On TV's Big Bang show, Amy Farrah Fowler a neurobiologist when first meeting theoretical physicist Sheldon Cooper said she "I don't object to the concept of a deity, but I'm baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance." Sheldon answers "Then you might want to avoid East Texas." Lewis expands upon some youthful misgivings when he said ; "Had God designed the world, it would not be a world so frail and faulty as we see."

CONVERSION TO CHRISTIANITY

Phantastes (by George Macdonald)Phantastes, (a book by George Macdonald published in 1858 and still available on Amazon with a 4 star rating under $15) changed the life of atheist Lewis. Of the night he read it Lewis states "That night my imagination was, in a certain sense, baptized; the rest of me, not unnaturally, took longer. I had not the faintest notion what I had let myself in for by buying Phantastes." Lewis later writes in an autobiography of an imaginary meeting with George Macdonald in Heaven; "I tried, trembling, to tell this man all that his writings had done for me. I tried to tell how a certain frosty afternoon at Leatherhead Station when I had first bought a copy of Phantastes (being then about sixteen years old) had been to me what the first sight of Beatrice had been to Dante: Here begins the new life. I started to confess how long that Life had delayed in the region of imagination merely: how slowly and reluctantly I had come to admit that his Christendom had more than an accidental connection with it, how hard I had tried not to see the true name of the quality which first met me in his books is Holiness."

C.S. Lewis did his thinking and changed his life and satirically comments on his conversion thinking "Thus it is better not be thought of as a proof of God's existence, but as an attempt to disprove naturalistic materialism .... In that, nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking."

Roman King Marcus Antoninus in the second century persecuting Christians argues "our life is what our thoughts make it." Paracelsus 14 centuries later, a genius physician following the words of Christ, traveled the world in pursuit of hidden knowledge, "To Heal Thyself." He wrote "thoughts are free and are subject to no rule. On them rest the freedom of man, and they tower above the light of nature, create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy." These are some deep thinkers. Gifts to humanity.

Man and God and Law
Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God
It would be comforting to call the horrific violations recounted in "Mea Maxima Culpa" unthinkable. But a true God believing Catholic (especially clergy) believe and KNOW that God's law and justice supersedes Man's law. If a person goes to the lowliest of ordained priests and confesses to a crime, even murder, that ordination enforces an honor bound by dogma that it is even a confessional sanctity to keep that knowledge confidential. The privacy of the confessional is a stronger bond than even "attorney client privilege." Christ forgives and so do Priests believing, most earnestly, in the power of forgiveness. As Catholic Dogma that right only extends to them through the succession of St. Peter. Penance must be done and by priestly instruction. They will advise you to go to the civil authorities, but can't make you. But attorneys, prosecutors, judges and the civil court system is minor in comparison to the law and power of God.

What these priest did (Sexual pedophilia) was a crime but more importantly it was sin. Those same religious people that trust in God, exorcise the Devil (mostly Satan's legion of demons). They are bound to secrecy, but not deception. Just study the rules of man and God and law and think of a bigger picture. The Pope said it was a great sadness and horrific tragedy, but never denied or destroyed documentation. Dig deeper into a scandal that has invaded the Boy Scouts, Protestant ministers and the whole world. The Catholic church is not immune to Satan who rules THIS WORLD in search of the ruin of souls. It is God's Will to redeem those Souls, not litigate them. I can't tell you what these religious hierarchy did was right or wrong, I just understand why they could do it no other way. Jail or Hell, what simpler decisions are you making today?

Life is but a moment in an eternity. Drop an atomic bomb and let God sort out the aftermath. But don't deny those who trust they are helping God before that any reaping occurs to do their opportunity to do their jobs. This madness is thinkable. For those who believe in the power of forgiveness ad infinitum the madness won't ever leave a 2000 year reign of the right to wield their sword of Christ. In their mind they're right, in your mind they're wrong. Think about it. Who knows the mind of God? But there are many honest, sincere and sacrificing Souls, living in this plane of existence, attempting it. "You gotta serve somebody, it may be the Devil or it may be the Lord, but you're gon'na serve somebody." you know who said that. It's the same person who said "I said that." Heaven is where we can be in each other's dreams. He must of meant that when he said it. Think again.
