Chardin, Evolution, And Vatican II
The influence of Teilhard de Chardin has been overlooked and not given due consideration by the Church in our time. His work to integrate the theory of evolution with Catholicism helped to spawn the modern day notion that the Catholic Church is an evolutionary process that goes through phases of change over time, which of course is heresy.
Chardin believed that God and the universe are evolving and pressing toward some glorious light or new Pentecost, an error that was insidiously applied at Vatican II, to the end that there are Catholics today who actually believe that God and his works undergo transformation and change.
But the fact is that monkeys do not grow out of fish, people do not grow out of monkeys, and reform does not grow out of tradition. What God has established from the beginning, whether spiritual or physical, remains, and does not change.
But not according to Chardin. He applied evolution in a spiritual way to create the fallacy that religion and its source evolve as well. As he saw it God is a cosmic entity that has yet to hatch and become a living host. His lunacy can best be described as science fiction fantasy which denies the goodness and majesty of the omnipotent Creator, for which reason he was condemned by the Church fathers in 1962.
Even so, his ideas were a major foundation block for the reformist movement that hit the Church at Vatican II which in turn has caused the Church in our time to evolve away from God, save the elect. Is it any wonder that Chardin is such a favorite among today's modernist progressives?
