Catholic Church Says / Bible Says:

  • Regarding Justification

    Catholicism teaches
    Justification is a spiritual rebirth and the lifelong process of sanctification, which begins at the point of the sacrament of baptism.

    The Bible teaches
    Justification is the legal declaration of Christ's righteousness reckoned to the believer at the point of faith, solely as an act of God's mercy.

"After singing a hymn, they went out to the Mount of Olives". (Mark 14:26) Can you hear Jesus singing? Can you imagine that. A perfect Man with a perfect voice! Was he a bass or a tenor? Was there a down-home twang to his voice? Or was there an unwavering crystal pitch? Imagine further if He appeared on the "Jerusalem Idol" program. He'd be a sure winner. Wouldn't be close.

Did he close his eyes and sing to his Father? Or did he look into his disciples’ eyes and smile at their deep camaraderie?
My meditating on this is the result of John Piper's devotion app of yesterday. John said "O, I can hardly wait to hear Jesus sing! I think the planets would be jolted out of orbit if he lifted his native voice in our universe. But we have a kingdom that cannot be shaken; so, Lord, come on and sing". Some day soon I will have the amazing thrill of hearing That Voice. Will You? Accept Him to hear Him and join His song. Sounds great.

"Our culture has aged, our churches are big and empty and the church bureaucracy rises up, our rituals and our cassocks are pompous," the Cardinal said. "The Church must admit its mistakes and begin a radical change, starting from the Pope and the bishops. The paedophilia scandals oblige us to take a journey of transformation." (Archbishop, Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini) The Independent.
