“Forward! Always Forward!”: Pope Francis’ Delusions of Grandeur

lenin forward

Forward to Communism!

Pope Francis celebrated the first vernacular Mass by Paul VI a few days ago.  As a man beholden to the “spirit of ’68”, he told the world and Catholics that there is no going back.  With all the subtly of the caring father he has shown himself to be toward real Catholics, he said that looking backward is wrong.

At times there are difficulties, … but where the Lord is, things go well. Do you agree? (“YES!”) Many thanks. Many thanks for welcoming me here, for your prayer with me at Mass. Let us thank the Lord for what he has done in his Church in these 50 years of liturgical reform. It was truly a courageous gesture for the Church to draw near to the people of God so that they are able to understand well what they are doing. This is important for us, to follow the Mass in this way. It is not possible to go backwards. We must always go forward. Always forward (applause)!  And those who go backward are mistaken. Let us go forward on this path (applause, cheers). Thank you.

It is mind-boggling that anyone could look at the state of the Church and the nearly wholesale ignorance of the fullness of the Faith by priests, bishops and the laity for the most part and in all places and actually to say without laughing or crying that this reform of the liturgy brought a good understanding to the people of what they are doing at the Mass.  Moreover, when we compare the fruits of the Tridentine Rite with the New Mass particularly with the vocations produced, how is it possible to say that it is mistaken to go backward and it is important to follow the Mass in the new way?  This is delusional.

And then we get the cheap slogan of the communists as the battle cry.  This papacy and the great part of the hierarchy every day help make the analogy of the state of the Church today with the state of the failing communist states stronger and stronger.  As in those days, the case is made repeatedly that things are great, never been better, the past is buried, despite the reality of the near total collapse that people actually live and lived.  As those societies and governments crumbled from moral and economic bankruptcy, so the Church does today from nearly complete moral and spiritual bankruptcy in so many.  The lies could only carry on for so long before the people rose against them and shook off their stupor and heeded those who had been holding on to the truth and refusing to live the lie.

One joke then was: “We pretend to work and they pretend to pay us.”

The joke in the Church today is: “we pretend to believe and they pretend to bless us.”

If the hierarchy today could, they would force the laity into the pews at the point of a gun and make them cheer in an attempt to perpetuate the lie, just like the communists they seek to emulate.  And they would eliminate those who are demeaned today as “traditionalists” with the same zeal the communists went after the “bourgeoisie” and the “kulaks” and the “speculators”.

We will see more of this in the coming months, and they will get more shrill, and they will get louder as they proclaim the great success of the Great Leap Forward.

It is uncanny the parallels that are so obvious to any student of history and to any one who lived under those utopian and deadly liars.

great leap forward

  1. The state of the Church under Francis is “mind boggling.” Thanks for your post, including the great Communist propaganda posters. It’s easy to understand how Marxist Francis (the stealthy) could work for a year behind the scenes to help Obama and the Castro regime in Cuba reestablish relations harmful to the US.

    Francis and company want us to be like useful idiots who simply “yes” their mad schemes and help finance them.

The mindset in postmodernism is that objective truth does not exist. But in post-truth, the person believes that objective truth exists, but they subordinate truth to their preferences, or their comfort. In other words, one doesn’t care that truth exists or what the truth is if it doesn’t line up with one’s preferences. "There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Faith in Jesus Christ is our response to God's elective purpose in our life. These two truths--God's initiative and man's response--co-exist throughout the Bible. The gospel is "the message of truth" because truth is its predominant characteristic. Salvation was conceived by the God of truth (Ps. 31:5); purchased by the Son, who is the truth (John 14:6); and is applied by the Spirit of truth (John 16:13). To know it is to know the truth that sets men free (John 8:32). Believers are people of the truth (John 18:37), who worship God in spirit and in truth (John 4:24), and who obey the Word of truth (John 17:17). People have rejected, neglected, redefined, and opposed God’s truth for centuries. Some cynically deny that truth even exists or that it can be known by men (John 18:38). Others foolishly think that denying truth will somehow make it go away. Truth determines the validity of one's belief. Believing a lie doesn't make it true. Conversely, failing to believe the truth doesn't make it a lie. The gospel is true because Jesus is true, not simply because Christians believe in Him. His resurrection proved the truth of His claims and constitutes the objective basis of our faith (Rom. 1:4; 1 Pet. 1:3). Truth is our protection and strength (Eph. 6:14). Throughout history, people have tried everything imaginable to gain favor with God. Most turn to religion, but religion apart from Christ is merely a satanic counterfeit of the truth. At the heart of every false religion is the notion that man can come to God by any means he chooses--by meditating, doing good deeds, and so on. But Scripture says, "There is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). That name is Jesus Christ, and we come to Him by confessing and repenting of our sin, trusting in His atoning death on the cross, and affirming His bodily resurrection from the grave (cf. Rom. 10:9-10). There is no other way to God. False religious leaders and teachers talk much about God’s love, but not His wrath and holiness; much about how deprived of good things people are, but not about their depravity; much about God’s universal fatherhood toward everyone, but not much about his unique fatherhood toward all who believe in His Son; much about what God wants to give to us, but nothing about the necessity of obedience to Him; much about health and happiness, but nothing about holiness and sacrifice. Their message is full of gaps, the greatest of which leaves out a biblical worldview of the saving gospel and replaces it with the worldview of postmodernism with its dominant ethical system of relativism. The Bible describes mankind in the end times: “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth” (2 Tim. 3:7). Spiritual answers cannot be deduced by human reason alone (1 Cor. 2:14). It’s not that spiritual truth is irrational or illogical, but that human wisdom is defective, because it’s tainted by man’s sinfulness, and unable to perceive the things of God. That is why the Bible is so important. It gives us the answers we can’t find on our own. It is God’s Word to mankind. Scripture is divinely revealed truth that fills the vacuum of spiritual ignorance in all of us. Post-truth is the word of the year for 2016 and also the philosophy of the day, According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. In a “post-truth” world, people make choices based on emotion and experience rather than objective fact. So in a post-truth world, truth is irrelevant. What exactly is a post-truth culture? It’s a culture where truth is no longer an objective reality. It has become subjective. It’s what’s true for me—my beliefs, my opinions, determine my truth. So in our post-truth culture, man determines truth. Man makes himself the ultimate authority. This starting point, which rejects God’s Word and the idea of moral absolutes, makes truth subjective. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Christianity is grounded in objective truth. “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Objective truth exists because we have God’s Word. In the Gospel of John, Jesus says, “Sanctify them by Your truth. Thy word is truth” (John 17:17), and Paul and James describe the Bible as “the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15; James 1:18). The Psalmist says, “The entirety of your word is truth” (Psalm 119:160). Jesus Himself said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice” (John 18:37). When Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except by me” (John 14:6), He wasn’t expressing His personal belief or opinion. He was speaking the truth, a fundamental reality that doesn’t change from person to person. It doesn’t matter if our culture thinks all roads lead to God. The truth of the matter is “no one comes to the Father but by [Jesus].” This blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
