The Great Disservice of Modernist Pastors (Modernism Part 27)

Today’s reading: Romans 10:9-18

Jesus came to bring us salvation. How are we saved? “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” (v.13). What is the process by which one will be led to call on the name of the Lord? Paul says further: “But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in him of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent?” (v.14-15a). So it is a process: Jesus sends, they preach, people hear, they believe, they call on him, they are saved.

Here is where modernists in our Church, especially among the higher-ups, are failing, and even thwarting the very mission of Jesus, by their wrong teaching.

People are not sent.

  • Catholics are told not to proselytize, that is, to make converts. So what is there to preach? The endangerment of polar bears due to global warming?

  • Many pastors focus on social justice issues but not on essential aspects of the gospel, particularly God’s righteousness. For example, keeping quiet on abortion if a political figure is for immigration or climate change.

So people do not preach.

  • Public unrepentant pro-aborts are not called out by pastors, and are even given Holy Communion. So others do not see or hear about what is right and wrong with regards to righteous living.

  • Pastors do not preach about the judgment that comes at the end, including hell for grave sinners. Or some of them even say there is no hell or that everyone can expect to get to heaven.

  • Pastors do not teach about there being only one Savior, who is Jesus Christ, claiming that there are many ways to the divine and all religions are valid.

So people do not hear.

  • Pastors speak about all sorts of things, such as climate change, immigration and vaccines, but not about the gospel of salvation in Jesus.

  • Or worse, they hear the wrong things, contrary to the gospel. Such as homosexuality being acceptable. Such as one who identifies as gay being born that way. Such as it being right to bless same-sex unions.

So people do not believe.

  • Thus many Catholics are OK with aspects of the culture of DEATH, such as divorce, abortion, LGBT and euthanasia.

  • Thus many Catholics have embraced the zeitgeist, the culture of the age, which is totally contradictory to the authentic gospel.

So people do not call on Jesus.

  • Thus many Catholics go about their lives in secular-humanist pursuits, unmindful of the call to righteousness and holiness.

  • With interreligious dialogue and the international brotherhood of all men, non-Christians are not led to consider the one true faith, which is Christianity.

So people are not saved.
