St. Paul pounds Protestants. Again.

Today’s Reading is from St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians. In it, he castigates those who have abandoned The Church and beliefs that he left with them. He insults these early Protestants and calls them “stupid”.

It is interesting that modern schismatics have twisted things so thoroughly that some think of St. Paul as an “early Protestant” simply because he argued with St. Peter, the first Pope.

Any Protestant who would seriously consider St.Paul’s very strong condemnation of Protestants mentioned in the New Testament would become Catholic. We all profit by considering Galatians, 3: 1-5:
“O stupid Galatians! Who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? I want to learn only this from you: did you receive the Spirit from works of the law, or from faith in what you heard? Are you so stupid? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now ending with the flesh? Did you experience so many things in vain?– if indeed it was in vain. Does, then, the one who supplies the Spirit to you and works mighty deeds among you do so from works of the law or from faith in what you heard?”
Can you imagine? The “Apostle to the Gentiles” was a Catholic priest/bishop. He was called, by name, by Jesus, Himself. That man, chosen by God, has a name for those who ceased believing fully in the teachings of the early Catholic Church. That name is “stupid”.

If St. Paul returned to our lands and time, he would be condemned for not being “sensitive to the feelings of others.” But, his teaching was true then, it is true today, and it will be true tomorrow. It is accepted by The Only Church Jesus Founded. It is safer for our soul’s eternal rest to believe and heed St. Paul than to be led astray by some politically correct pretender seeking to justify yet another schismatic cash flow.

St. Paul’s words describe schismatics who are too stubborn to heed his teaching. The vain ignore that their apostasy is, to St. Paul, “stupid”.
