That's right, I went there.
Before the theological war begins in the comment section, however, hear me out:
This video, which was originally from 2012 and resurfaced on Twitter this week, provides all the evidence my argument needs. That being said, here are a few specific observations:
- These women say we shouldn't "listen to St. Paul." To discard Paul is to discard the testimony of the apostles and the Gospel accounts in their entirety, since Paul was accepted as an apostle by the others who walked with Jesus during his ministry. They affirmed his repeated claim that the risen Jesus had stopped him on the road to Damascus and called him to be an apostle.
- "Where do you think the Church is going?" Hoo boy, what a statement. Instead of appealing to the proper exegetical application of Scripture, these ladies want to appeal to feelings and popular culture.
Here were some other responses to this mess, Catholic or otherwise:
Somehow, this 8-year-old video is the perfect visual for where most American churches are at in their acceptance of Wokianity in 2021. It's a pure appeal to trendiness and emotions, not a proper understanding of the Bible – or more importantly, the Author of said Bible.
You know, the sovereign and holy God in heaven above, who reigns forever and ever, amen (and awomen)?
