Does this statement encapsulate someone who has lost their faith? August 26, 2010

Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, silliness.

From Catholic Culture (I’m busy ripping them off today), some women’s ordination supporter in Britain has these words to clarify her support for that heterodox (heretical?) view: “I think the Church has got to change or it will not survive.”

Does this statement encapsulate a complete lack of Faith? 

1) The Faith must change to suit me, for I am wiser than the Church (and hence, God)
2) The Church will not survive – so, essentially, the Church is just a social construct, a creation of man, and God hasn’t got anything to do with it.

Is it any wonder a person who thinks the Church is dumb as an ox and just a big happy clappy gathering would not adhere to any Truth of the Faith?

The acronym E.G.O. (Easing God Out) comes to mind.

So, I pick #1.

EGO, quite. That’s generally most of it – some form of selfishness means to drive all sin. But the prideful aspect is most typical, especially in “I can do anything contemporary US culture.”
