THE CHURCH/THE POPE/THE SCHISM

GodsGrace

CF Ambassador
This Pope is ruining the CC and I knew this already in about 2015 or so.

Now he's stating, in writing, that a homosexual person can be blessed, which would be OK if he decided to live as God would want,
but he means that even a couple could be blessed, as long as it doesn't have the trappings of a wedding...clothing, flowers,etc.

How would a priest bless a sinful action?
A blessing is for the express service of allowing the blessed to be of service to God.
The CC has always taught that homosexuality (practiced) is a sinful life.

A Pope takes an oath that he will not change church doctrine.
This pope has changed 3 doctrine I could think of just off the top of my head.

So. this is my question:

If a catholic person leaves the CC...
WHO is in schism?
The person leaving
or
The Pope?

I say the Pope.
 
He latest ruling.

Pope Francis Pushes for Surrogacy Ban and Calls the Practice 'Deplorable'​


I have no idea why He's involved the church in calling for a surrogacy Ban as in the name of Christ.

Gee.
I agree with him.
Something's wrong!!!
 
He didn't call for it in the name of Christ but He's doing it as the head of the Catholic church which to me is stating as such as the Vicar of Christ.
He's ruined the CC.
This is nothing.

Do you, as a christian, agree with him in this case?

I feel like Jesus would state, "why involve me in this?"

If a women can't conceive or carry her own baby to term and desires her own baby and another woman agrees to be a surrogate, I don't see any sin. I haven't asked the Lord about this and that's my thoughts.

You know how everything begins with good intentions and then it just spirals down to the depths of evil.

Divorce
Abortion
Assisted Suicide
SS Marriage
Etc

We'll probably end up with human baby making factories.
Very unnatural and not what God intended.

Hmm, I thought it was the Catholics who frowned upon birth control. Not sure. But if so, that's none of their business either.
I see sin from the start in the examples you listed but not in surrogacy.

Yes Randy. I see what you mean.
I guess I meant that it just gets worse and worse.
Abortion started out for health reasons,
then because it was less dangerous than "back alley abortions".
and so on...

But you're right. They all started out as sinful.

The CC teaches that we're supposed to be open to life.
But Catholics practice some kind of birth control or other.
Natural is good because the body goes thru its normal routiine.
Too much to get into.
Anyway, I doubt you're really interested.
Pope John Paul II wrote a beautiful document on this - can't remember what it's called.
