In the Book of the prophet Ezeckiel, (28: 1 – 10), we can read very clearly about the King of Tyre who had so much wealth and power, that he thought of himself to be like God. This is exactly how I see Catholics, and most people believing today.
We too, have so much wealth and control of our environment (air conditioning, heating, fast cars and airplanes), that we think we have control over everything. From this comes our belief that we can do what ever we want morally. We have placed ourselves in the place of God. He no longer matters. We can take an unborn babies life and be praise for doing it because it gives women their rights. “I am god to make the choice if I want my baby or not.”
We make up our own (Catholic) religion to suit our own beliefs. God no longer matters. We love the Novus Ordo mass because we can look at each other (priest saying mass toward people), greet each other and hear each other speaking in their own language. We never ask what God loves.
We have atheist who deny God’s existence. We have the media and movies against God’s Laws. So prayerfully, read this passage from the Prophet Ezeckiel and be sure you are not in his condemnation. We too need to be prophets condemning all people and religions that put creatures as gods.
“And the word of the Lord came to me, saying: Son of man, say to the prince of Tyre: Thus saith the Lord God: Because thy heart is lifted up, and thou hast said: I am God, and I sit in the chair of God in the heart of the sea: whereas thou art a man, and not God: and hast set thy heart as if it were the heart of God. Behold thou art wiser than Daniel: no secret is hid from thee. In thy wisdom and thy understanding thou hast made thyself strong: and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures. By the greatness of thy wisdom, and by thy traffic thou hast increased thy strength: and thy heart is lifted up with thy strength
Therefore, thus saith the Lord God: Because thy heart is lifted up as the heart of God: Therefore behold, I will bring upon thee strangers the strongest of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy beauty. They shall kill thee, and bring thee down: and thou shalt die the death of them that are slain in the heart of the sea. Wilt thou yet say before them that slay thee: I am God; whereas thou art a man, and not God, in the hand of them that slay thee? Thou shalt die the death of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord God.”
