The ecumaniacs in the conciliar church, including their fake saints, love them some “common ground” with non-Catholics.
In 1991 during a so-called “Apostolic Journey to Poland and Hungary,” John Paul the Great Ecumenist addressed a gathering of heretic and schismatic leaders, saying:
Among the “signs of the times” which we should note there is the mutual esteem which Christians feel towards one another today, even though they belong to communities which are still divided … Today, through ecumenical dialogue, we have discovered common ground and convergence on many important points … which today stand out more and more as areas in which the various communities can fruitfully cooperate with each other. For example, of joint prayer for common needs, shared concern for justice and peace in society, joint action to show solidarity and to create conditions and structures for a more equitable distribution of the world’s resources and for greater responsibility in their use.
If I hadn’t already identified the speaker, many would be certain that it was Bergoglio. The lesson, one I shall continue repeating, is that Jorge isn’t the problem, (repeat after me) It’s the Council, stupid!
In any case, notice that, in the minds of the ecumenists, the value of any “common ground” that exists with the heretics and schismatics is that it can serve as a launching point for reaching earthbound goals.
This being so, tradition-minded Catholics (if you will forgive the redundancy) may be overlooking the fact that common ground really can be of tremendous value, but only insofar as it becomes a stepping stone to true Christian unity, which exists only within the Holy Catholic Church.
Well, just such common ground can be found in the Catholic understanding of the Sovereign Rights of Christ the King, and this in part thanks to the fact that the Biblical foundation for this doctrine is so rich and profound.
I recall having a conversation on a flight one day with a Protestant man about the Kingship of Christ, and it completely resonated with him. It wasn’t that the Social Kingship of Christ occupied any special place of importance in his own community’s beliefs, but rather that the idea that Our Lord reigns over ALL things, including things temporal, in a way that obligates even entire nations, once heard stated aloud was like a “no brainer” to him. It seems that everyone who calls Jesus “Lord” just gets it on a gut level.
Long story short, this doctrine has great evangelical value, or dare I say proselytizing power. As one delves more deeply into it, the more in focus Our Lord’s Kingdom on earth comes. This, of course, is the Holy Catholic Church.
With this in mind, in Episode 9, we will examine the Scriptural foundation for the Social Kingship of Christ. My hope is that you will find it worthy of sharing, not just with your Catholic family members and friends, but with your Protestant family members and friends as well.
Thank you in advance for watching and sharing, and most especially for supporting our efforts.
