Faith is not knowledge!

Faith is not the human act of merely consenting to theological knowldge but it is the divine act of submitting both our Intellect and Will to God's revelation. If the Intellect alone is employed, knowledge remains simply as true and good life-giving information. It does not transform our life nor does it give life. Faith without action is dead. Jam 2:26 Will is the faculty of the soul which seeks to love that which is known. And 'loving' is not simply liking the information but the act of becoming what we have come to know. In other words loving is to freely act upon the information in such a way that knowledge becomes a living experience. If I come to know that in order to sustain my life I must drink water and if I do not act on this information and drink water, this knowledge does not do me any good.  In order for my faith to be active and alive, my Will has to be in harmony with the Intellect. It also means both my Intellect and Will should be surrendered to God. The di

Did we not invite this for ourselves!

Today, in Delhi, the capital of India, hundreds of women are shouting slogans and staging mass protests desperately seeking protection of their kind from guess who, men!. The slogans say " Teach men how to respect woman", " Woman are not objects of Pleasure" and likes.

The very men whom God ordained to protect, nourish, respect and honor woman is now destroying, plundering and devastating womanhood. Men have stooped so low giving themselves to the carnal desires of the flesh objectifying and utilizing woman, thus doing exactly opposite of what was expected of them. As this horror unloose in front of our eyes, there already in full power, behind the curtains, takes place murder of thousands of innocent babies in the name of freedom, career and pleasure. They have sugar coated it and called it "planned parenthood". The very mothers who are ordained to protect, nourish, respect and honor new-born children are now the ones who consent with men to brutally terminate these precious lives - a true gift from God. Abortion is cold blood murder of the defenseless, innocent children.

Consider shocking event back in Newtown, Connecticut, where a 20 years old shoots down 20 innocent school children and 7 adults including his own mother. It is now evident the estranged mother herself was the reason why the youngster took to the gun. There is raw evil evident in all these inconceivable events. We all sense something very serious is going on around us and it seems beyond our control.

We have conveniently escorted God out of our lives, homes, schools and public places. Any mention of God has become abominable and less fashionable among us. Those who still call on God are seen as weak and mock-worthy.

There can only be one thing without God and that is "raw evil". Just as absence of light is darkness, absence of God is evil. We have willingly ushered in the devil and handed us over to him to have his go at us. We gave ourselves over to satan for instant money and fame, forfeiting our own divine call to be sons and daughters of God. We, instead of exhibiting "love" the characters of our father, exhibit sheer evil, the very character of our adopted father, the devil.

Along with the so many other ways we have invented to be selfish, the most lethal yet what seemed so innocuous was the artificial birth control. The sugar coated, mammoth lie that was presented to us said the cause for all misery was not our own corrupted hearts but "population". And the solution was artificial birth control. This idea was totally bought over by all nations not because it would solve all their problems but because it would set the stage for a much more loose, immoral, irresponsible manhood and womanhood devoid of conscience. Man and woman can now indulge in their passions with an official approval. They forgot they will soon become enemies to each other. Erasing babies did not give them any liberation or escape but left them totally depraved, selfish and voracious.

Four decades ago, Pope Paul VIth, in his encyclical "Humanae Vitae" warned of four resulting trends if artificial contraception became widespread:

  1. A general lowering of moral standards throughout society 
  2. A rise in infidelity 
  3. A lessening of respect for women by men and
  4. The coercive use of reproductive technologies by governments.

Let us awake to the reality!. We have all been deceived. But the time is not too late. Let us turn back to God. Usher him back into our lives, homes, schools and public places. The Catholic Church, the mystical body of Christ, calls all humanity to come over and unite as children of God and single out every instance of evil until peace and happiness reign once again on the face of earth.
