Who wants to play “Dubia for Dummies”?

Dubia for DummiesINTRODUCTION

Dogma: “A truth appertaining to faith or morals, revealed by God, transmitted from the Apostles in the Scriptures or by tradition, and proposed by the Church for the acceptance of the faithful … A dogma therefore implies a twofold relation: to Divine revelation and to the authoritative teaching of the Church.” (cf 1914 Catholic Encyclopedia)

Heresy: “Outright denial or positive doubt regarding a truth that the Catholic Church has actually proposed as revealed by God.” (cf Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J., Catholic Dictionary)

With this in mind, consider:

dummies-man-pointing-right -clr -150px“Let no man, when he is tempted, say that he is tempted by God. For God is not a tempter of evils: and he tempteth no man.” (James 13:1)

“If any one saith … that the works that are evil God worketh as well as those that are good, not permissively only, but properly, and of Himself… let him be anathema.” (cf Council of Trent, Session VI, Chapter XVI, Canon VI)

Dubium 1: Does the teaching “God never wills evil” qualify as dogma?

Dubium 2: Does the teaching “One’s conscience can come to see with a certain moral security that persistence in adultery is what God himself is asking” qualify as heresy?

RESPONSE:

As to Dubium 1, the answer is AFFIRMATIVE.

As to Dubium 2, the answer is AFFIRMATIVE.

If you answered NEGATIVE to either Dubium, you just might be a DUMMY!

If you answered AFFIRMATIVE to both Dubia, but you are unwilling to publicly defend the Church’s dogma and the holiness of Almighty God by calling a heresy a heresy and a heretic and heretic, you are definitely a COWARD!
