Requesting Apologetists to Help
edit_button

I was just visiting Salt of the Earth, a blog by Adam, and I read this:

"I'm not going to go into why the pope is the Antichrist right now"
How horrible! Our Holy Father is not the Antichrist! The pope is the successor of St. Peter, who was the first pope founded on the Catholic Church in Matthew 16:18. Please go over there and present the truth of the Catholic faith and counter this saddening lie.

First let me say that I recently discovered your blog and have begun reading it weekly (congrats on your vocation, btw). I myself am in the initiation process into the Church.

I can understand your offense. After reading your post I did go to read what this was all about. After reading this boy's entry, I also went to his cited texts (on this website he mentioned; I can give you the link if you like), which is what offended me most: that there are people in power of any kind, not merely spreading misinformation about the Church, but about their own faith as well (Lutheran)--as a scholar, I found the missed context absurd. More frightening that this blogger intends to go into teaching himself...

But we shouldn't let such ignorance move us to anger, should we? What he says, he says out of complete ignorance. If anything, I have pity for him. All I can think to do is correct his misinformation and hope that he does not continue to accept so passively everything and anything that is given to him...

That and pray for him...

Pray for me, too, please. =)

I just posted a similar comment on my site:
I didn't think Moneybags that you read my blog. I just thought you were reading Aaron's. And so I had wanted this topic to be just a discussion between those in fellowship with me.
I am sorry that I offended anyone. I wasn't careful enough. This is a public site and I should know that anyone could read it.
Now that we are all involved it should prove to be an nice and interesting discussion. Please don't be offended by what we believe as it comes forth from Scripture. On my side, we try not to be offended by what you believe and teach also. I understand that at times this is hard to do. But atleast we know that we are in the same situation.
I guess it's time to start studying if I'm going to say anything on this topic.
Adam

Moneybags, I've started posting the Q&A about Mary. Drop by anytime. I hope they will help answer the questions of Catholics and non-Catholics.

God bless!

moneybags, i posted on the james reading, so did adam. As Adam said,i suggest that you hold in your anger that was caused by his post. We didn't intend to even bring this up yet, if at all. As it is a doctine taught in the Bible though, i ask you to join in polite convo with us on the matter, because, believe me, we woudln't just make something up like this. It will be hard not to be hateful in this discussion, but i encourage you to continue the wonderful example you've been setting. I am happy with the way the other discussions have been carried out.

That was actually my first visit to your blog, and I still am saddened to see someone believe the Pope is the antichrist. It didn't make a good impression.

Aaron, I will have this discussion in a calm matter. The only problem I have is when people claim that the Successor to St. Peter is the anti-christ. This is offending to me.

You said, "As it is a doctine taught in the Bible though"

Are you saying that the Pope being the antichrist is a doctrine from the Bible??
