But discussing it any further would violate the rules of the forum.
I undertstand, Quis.
Without going further along the S.V. path, how is what the writer of that article stating any different than what Martin Luther stated? Isn't this just repackaged Protestantism?
Luther is the father is protestantism, a completely separate religion all together. The author has certainly not formed his own religion extra ecclesiam
by denying the Church as the only source of Objective Truth, the necessity of the sacraments for salvation, or the supremacy of the Papacy. He is setting the foundation for his personal speculations concerning a conspiracy evidenced (in his opinion) by the lack of manifested gifts of the Holy Ghost by which all man may discern Truth from error - in short, by which we may know the True Church from all others:
Q. 699. Which are the gifts of the Holy Ghost?
A. The gifts of the Holy Ghost are Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Fortitude, Knowledge, Piety, and Fear of the Lord.
Where is the Wisdom
in convening a council not called to address heresy or establish Dogma?
Where is the Understanding
of Catholic Dogma made obscure by the ambiguities of the VII documents?
Where is the Counsel
against the deceits of the devil amidst ecumenism, collegiality, modernism, liberalism, indifferentism, pluralism, etc.
Where is the Fortitude
of the Church which has conceded to Protestant ideals and reconciliation with Jews?
Where is the sound Knowledge
of the Faith as evidence by the Catholic laity and clergy?
Where is Catholic Piety
in the Novus Ordo Missae, the product of this council?
Amidst all of these voids, most especially, where is our Fear
of God's wrath?
How then can we claim that the Holy Ghost is guiding our Church and its pope in the way of Truth when it is in want of all of His gifts?
This was the author's premise. Bold, but not Protestant.
