“It is impossible to deny the crisis of division and widespread confusion that characterizes the Church in our day. Nor can anyone who loves the Church ignore the strong theological undercurrents that Dr. Martin identifies in his book, currents that try to separate what cannot be legitimately divided: pastoral charity from revealed truth.”
Bishop Scott McCaig, C.C. Military Ordinary of Canada -As a review for the book: A Church in Crisis, Pathways Forward
Bishop McCaig is right.
We cannot deny the crisis of division & widespread confusion that exists in our Church today.
Some would say “to question this” is a lack of obedience.
I would counter to say that “to not question” what goes against Scripture & Church doctrine is a complete lack of trust in God.
Because God is not a liar.
I have always been a rule-follower. I also consider myself to be extremely obedient; especially within the teachings of the Church, and I plan to continue living my life in this very same manner.
However, to deny that I and countless other faithful Catholics – nay Christians – are not confused would be a flagrant lie.
