Doth a fountain send forth, out of the same hole, sweet and bitter water?  Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear grapes; or the vine, figs? So neither can the salt water yield sweet.  Who is a wise man, and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew, by a good conversation, his work in the meekness of wisdom.  But if you have bitter zeal, and there be contentions in your hearts; glory not, and be not liars against the truth.  For this is not wisdom, descending from above: but earthly, sensual, devilish.I was not going to embed this video of John Vennari. I was not pleased with the harsh tone that Vennari uses. I thought he was not being "charitable".
-- Epistle Of Saint James 3:11-15
However, the more I learn about the "theology" of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the more convinced I become that he is deserving of the harshest criticism possible. The only danger is that some will not listen to the message because it is so hard to bear.
We should all be weeping at this time. And not wasting our time in defense of this anti-pope.
The reason it seems that at times he contradicts himself is quite simple. This is what happens to liars. They can't keep their stories straight. And Jorge Mario is engaged in such a "big lie" that it is nearly impossible for him to speak even one full sentence without contradicting himself.
If you read one of his homilies/sermons the first thing you realize is this is the product of a third rate preacher. His preaching lacks any depth -- in addition to being full of heresies. If nothing else he should be getting criticized by all Catholics for his inferior preaching. Surely a pope of the Catholic Church should be expected to capable of preaching the faith without leading souls into error.
If Bergoglio was a protestant preacher he would quickly find himself without a church to preach in. I can tell you that in the protestant churches if a preacher doesn't know how to preach he will be quickly tossed out and the search will begin for a new pastor.
This is only relevant because Bergoglio insists on rejecting all things Catholic and embracing all things non-Catholic. So then, isn't it fair play to hold him to a non-Catholic standard?
How did we get to this point? Unlike other calamities which have befallen the Church, this one has only one possible explanation. You can blame the closing of Catholic churches and seminaries on changes in the "modern" world. But the choice of a pope is completely an internal function of the Church.
Therefore the cause lies within the Church.
This is the bitter fruit of Vatican II. It is a poisonous apple which threatens to destroy the Church.
At this point I am afraid to say that I have lost all faith in this pope. If you read my earlier posts when Bergoglio was first elected you will see that I greeted this pope with great hope.
The only hope I have left comes from my faith in God. It is up to us to continue to do God's will despite whatever happens in the Vatican. This necessarily means that we will be required to oppose the plans of Bergoglio for the Church.
This will not be easy. But if we continue to follow the pope out of a sense of reverence we will end up with a disaster as devastating to the Church as the priest sex abuse scandal. It was out of respect for priests and bishops that the truth did not come out regarding this abuse earlier. Think of all the suffering that could have been avoided if people had spoken out.
This pope is getting great praise from the secular press. For the first time you can read articles about the pope without any references to the sex abuse scandal. This pope has friends in all the wrong places.
