A Catholic Calls on Me to Take Down This Blog and Quit Spreading Evil Disease

Here is an email I received from a Catholic upset over the content of this blog.

Take your blogs down, why spread your evil disease of lack of faith to others; misery loves company. Repent, call out to the Almighty with all your heart, be willing to raise the flag of surrender to God, brother you must ask God for sustained faith it is a gift, not something you conjure out of your own heart. Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, if you are eternally lost, and you asked not for faith it is no ones fault but your own: Joh 6:37  All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. Most High and Sovereign Father, grant to this man renewed faith, fill him w Thy Holy Spirit to the uttermost, utterly bind the Enemy and his helpers work against Bruce’s soul, Mother Mary and all ye Holy Ones in Heaven assist me in my prayers for Bruce, St. Pio, St. Jude, St. Anthony of Padua, St Nicholas, St Seraphim  of Sarov, help pray for this man, I beg, that his soul not be lost and that he would no longer work against the Most Holy Faith of Jesus, O Lord have mercy on His soul and irresistibly draw him back to Christ, and to His Church, in Jesus’ name do I pray, Amen

I received this email a couple of years ago. Philokalia3’s prayers, like every other Christian prayer uttered against me, must have not made it to God’s voice mail box. Despite calling on God, Mary, and a host of saints, I remain unrepentant. So much for the “power” of prayer.

    He prayed to God, Mary and five saints in an email addressed to you? What’s that about? Showing you how pious he is?

    i get very confused. doesn’t it say somewhere in the bible that we are not to pray to dead people? all of the “saints” are dead people. Christ- according to them- is risen so he’s not dead, ok to pray to him. some of these people are newly dead too, so one wonders how much saintly power they have? a powerful delusion is what.

      The Wikipedia article on the intercession of saints is quite informative. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intercession_of_saints

      Remember, Catholics view the Bible differently than Evangelicals. The final arbiter of Biblical truth for the Catholic is not the individual, but the church. And whatever the church might say about the intercession of saints, it seems clear to me that what it turned into was a way to manipulate people and generate income.

    oh noes!!! alas then burying st joseph upside down in the back yard to sell my home faster just won’t work? If i were a beleiver in jeebus and his superstitious zombie godship and saints i”d be so depressed!!! But thankfully the nuns in the catholic orphanage beat any belief out of me. although i do still wonder how they could all be married to zombie jeebus. they all did wear wedding rings. you could see them flash and glimmer as they swung their hands at your face
