The Importance of Doctrine

July 9, 2008

C.T. at the Plain Path Puritan has some good thoughts today on the importance of doctrine (link). Obviously, long time readers will also recognize that I disagree with C.T. on a number of issues, and that I cannot fully endorse everything on C.T.’s blog. Regardless of those differences, what C.T. has to say on this issue is good.

Doctrinal Innovation on the Horizon

February 11, 2008

As reported here (linklink to the source), and previously predicted by Dr. James White, five cardinals have begun the process necsesary to persuade Benedict XVI to dogmatize certain Marian dogmas that are (in some cases) clearly contrary to Scripture and (in those and in other cases) without exegetical Scriptural warrant.

The blasphemous proposed wording is as follows:

Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of man, gave to humanity from the Cross his mother Mary to be the spiritual Mother of all peoples, the Co-redemptrix, who under and with her Son cooperated in the Redemption of all people; the Mediatrix of all graces, who as Mother brings us the gifts of eternal life; and the Advocate, who presents our prayers to her Son.

I hope that God will have mercy on the Roman Catholic Church and preserve them from this blasphemous further descent into Mariolatry. I don’t have great confidence that He will do so, and if He does not, it will be a judgment against what remains formally and in name a church of Christ, but which has long ceased to preach with purity the gospel of Christ.
