In this episode of the Bellarmine Forum podcast, John B. Manos discusses with you the two standards in today’s context:
On one side, God is a Person (the Triune Person) – a living person who has thoughts, loves you, and became man.
On the other side, God is a mere idea, a concept.
Manos applies Fr. Hardon’s Neopaganism and looks for a new name for this trend of people who worship themselves and make God a mere concept (a lie).
Take an odyssey of discussion through the landscape today where Manos shows that the 12 million dollar church being built in Las Vegas reveals that it is inspired by the concept of evolution and that there is no person being worshipped in the forms of that Church. He compares this to traditional churches which reveal immediately that God is a person and we worship Him.
Darren, long time fan of the Forum, can rejoice that more on the idea of Fatima and what our Lady was warning of is discussed in the context of these modern errors we see around us.
And, adding to the odyssey, Manos reveals the source of bad Church music in Omer Westendorf, the Cincinnati native that started this mess with the World Liturgy (WLP) and making “hymns” such as Gift as Finest Wheat. Link to the obituary mentioned. He also published the People’s Hymn Book — peoples’… do you understand now, comrade?
