One of life’s great pleasures for lovers of truth is being able to heartfully agree with your enemies. Though we do not personally count him an enemy, Richard Dawkins, author of several books championing evolution, is a great enemy of the truth and the Creator in this matter. We find his attitude and teachings grossly untrue, irresponsible, and even reprehensible, intellectually, scientifically, socially, and spiritually.
But when we hear that Dawkins, along with Christopher Hitchens, is initiating legal proceedings to have the pope arrested on his upcoming trip to England on charges of obstruction of justice, we could not agree more, and we applaud his efforts. Their reasoning is certainly legitimate. Why should the pope and his minions be above the law? Ought they not be held to at least the same standards of justice as the common pedophile, if not more severe for their pretensions of morality?
Get this: The Catholic Church preaches eternal damnation and torture for sinners, but pleads for the statute of limitations regarding their heinous sins! As they say in Yiddish, that is some chutzpah. You go, Richard!
Richard Dawkins Calls for Arrest of Pope Benedict XVI
– April 15, 2010
You can't make or will yourself into being good soil. God must do that. And while we're held responsible for not heeding the call of God to repentance and keeping His commandments, there is no such thing as "too late," as in you'll end up frying in a never-ending fire - "eternal torment." That's one of many lies of Catholicism.
We have a conversation with one who claims to know and worship God through the Catholic Church, while we present her with knowing and worshipping Him through Jesus Christ. In this you will see the contrast of light with darkness, truth with error, life with death, if God gives you the grace to see.
Scott Hahn is a well-publicized Presbyterian convert to Catholicism..."out of the frying pan and into the fire." He once gave a speech about this experience, discussing some of the doctrinal issues with which he grappled at the time. We address these issues and the erroneous thinking which led to his conversion to Catholicism. Surely, when God sends strong delusion that one should believe a lie (2 Thessalonians 2:11), who can withstand Him? Nevertheless, we preach the truth, reprove the works of darkness, and hope in God the Truth, Whose Word will bear fruit in due time.
