Dear Brothers Dimond,
While I was at Mass last Sunday in Belding Michigan someone put a video on the windshield of my car. In fact, that same video was on the windshield of every car in the parking lot of the church. The label on the video promised to be shocking and suggested that I pray the rosary. I viewed the video, and I must say that I was shocked.
Living in a predominantly Evangelical Protestant area of the country we Catholics are used to being challenged by biblical fundamentalist. The Holy Scripture is taken out of context, recited chapter and verse in an effort to show us the error of our ways. The mostly well meaning people build their case by assembling bits and pieces of biblical verse to suit their needs, to reveal their truth as they interpret it.
I was shocked to see you employ the same techniques as my fundamentalist Evangelical acquaintances. To assemble bits and peaces of Papal Encyclicals, various Council Documents, Catholic Catechism, and Holy Scripture written over thousands of years to achieve your personal agenda was shocking indeed. Somehow, you seem like unlikely candidates to have fallen prey to this trickery.
God is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. In the end, salvation is His to give. You have inspired me to pray the rosary I pray it for you. Should your assertion be true that salvation is found only in the Catholic Church, you will need the prayers., because you are clearly outside it.
It’s all taken out of context… right… sure….That’s why you don’t even give one example of where this supposedly occurs. You prove our point that people like you are not Catholic when you state: “Should your assertion be true that salvation is found only in the Catholic Church, you will need the prayers., because you are clearly outside it.” You’re not even convinced that a dogma that has been defined by the Church more than seven times is true, and you’re telling me I’m not a Catholic. Begone, you blinded heretic. Write us again when you finally believe in the infallibly defined dogmas of the Faith, and are ready to be honest.
