Have you ever heard of Omar Khadr? He’s a Canadian born Muslim Jihadi who fought with the Taliban. He killed an American medic and blinded another in Afghanistan. Watch the video that I’ve provided above if you want to learn all of the details.
A lot is going on in our world right now. This year has been brutal in terms of terrorist attacks. The two attacks in London yesterday are only the most recent example. We could also talk about the increasing secularization of Western society which has been plaguing us since the French Revolution, though it seems like recently it’s been put in fast forward. Many things could be talked about. However, instead of talking about the problems, I’m going to talk about the solution.
I have responded to Matt Slick in the past. Not long ago, I wrote a piece against his views on the Deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament. Since Slick has criticized many other doctrines of the Catholic Church, I thought that I would respond to some of them. Today I will tackle his argument that Mary cannot be the Queen of Heaven in Revelation 12:1-2. His article on this issue can be found here:
A good tactic for debating liberal “Christians” is to push their boundaries. For example, homosexual apologists like Matthew Vines and Michael Coren are religious liberals. In other words, they are religious in their liberalism. They aren’t liberals in the fact that they know what Christianity teaches and reject parts that they may find uncomfortable, they are religious in their liberal views.
I recently listened to a podcast from Catholic Answers where Peter Kreeft was a guest. For those who don’t know, Peter Kreeft is a Catholic convert from Calvinism and one of the greatest Philosophers of our day. Both Catholics and Protestants read his works and make good use of them. He is also heavily involved in the pro-life movement and has written books like The Unaborted Socrates. In other words, we have a lot to thank him for.
The Quran claims to be the next and final revelation in the Abrahamic tradition. That is, the religion of Abraham, Moses, Elijah, John the Baptist and Jesus Christ. Unlike the New and Old Testament that we have today, the Quran was revealed to only one person over a 23 year period. Over those years, according to Islamic tradition Muhammad told his followers these revelations who then wrote them down or committed them to memory. Shortly after Muhammad’s death, the Muslim community got together and constructed a single Quran and this is the Quran read today. That’s at least how the official story relates it.
In Western society, we are brainwashed. We are taught that good is evil and evil is good. Over the last three years, I have spent long hours studying and realizing that the post-enlightenment Western world is demonic. I now oppose modern Western values with all my soul.
Pope Pius X clearly articulated in his Pontificate in the early 1900’s that modernism was the greatest heresy. He was correct, essentially because modernism is a war on objective truth. While some religions have been affected more than others, every religion has been effected. One of the worst is the Church of England. This has caused Senior Anglican Clergyman Gavin Ashenden to leave this group.
Bart Ehrman has really been helping the enemies of God. He has quite a corpus of material against Christian orthodoxy. Atheists and Muslims are more than eager to purchase his books and accept his conclusions; often uncritically. Sadly, there is nothing that we can do about this except to learn to respond to these criticisms.
Today Canadian conservative pundit Lauren Southern posted a video which basically says that Muslims are invading our culture. She said that they have high fertility rates and are threatening our precious Western values which no one is standing up for any longer. I’m embarrassed to say that when I was her age, I thought in this ridiculous manner as well.
