How many p.p.m. of feces do you like in YOUR Rocky Road ice cream?

Who’s up for a little Friday night intrigue? Who’s afraid of a little Origenist universalism? What’s wrong with preaching half-truths half the time?

Get these questions and more answered in my latest post at One Peter Five!

On Excluding Exclusion and the Inclusion Delusion: A Few Things to Know and Share

The audience is every soul on earth; the concern is care for the earth; the hope is eternal bliss in Heaven for all creatures.

This is what is known as universalism.

And it seems to be an official papal teaching.

But that’s none of my business.

Read the whole thing at One Peter Five.

And don’t worry, it’s probably just the grappa.

This too shall pass…

  1. Brother Elliot. you are on a fierce roll. Whatever you do (and we know how busy you are) don’t stop.

    You have a real talent for using your intellect to identify heterodoxy and you combine that with your sizzling and smoking rhetoric that makes me LOL at times.


  2. Tamsin says:

    three observations and one question,

    There are significant parallels between the Open Borders ethos that has gripped our Western elite, and the Universalism (Mercy without Justice) that has gripped our Catholic elite. Each one emptying out the family educating children within a culture; and “criminalizing innocence” as ABS put it so well in a comment at 1P5. It’s antinomianism, at least until the elites no longer find it useful to espouse.

    The combox at 1P5 is often devolving these days with prodigious, and not always charitably instructive, commentary by rkat and lwhite et al. Those of us who are still “reading in” need a bit more room to make mistakes.

    Trying to understand what the Pope says? You told me not to! Because that way lies madness! As you yourself pointed out, Francis will more often than not be saying what he says to achieve a political goal within Catholicism rather than express coherent belief.

    Question: the Universalism link in your 1P5 article is broken. Where to? Any other good links?


  3. Hi, tamsin, always good to hear from you, sorry for the delayed reply.

    I fixed the link. It just went to Fr. Hardon’s Catholic Dictionary, nothing fancy.

    I don’t spend a whole lot of time in the comboxes at 1P5, or elsewhere, in fact. “Reading in” is… a slow, personal, and often painful process, but a necessary one.

    Please keep in touch, and stay low–the Noisemaker of Rome keeps firing shells faster than we can cover them! 😉

  4. Thanks, brother, I just have to commit it to God and speak the truth in love.

Be kind, be (relatively) brief, be clear...
