"Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge"
|Adulterist and neo-modernist, Thomas Rausch S.J.|
Tragically, even if the Pope does confirm Catholic doctrine, the two years of lack of clarity and obfuscation will have done untold damage. The moral crisis that has been rocking the Church since Humanae Vitae will continue to grow like a cancer. Only rigorous and proactive papal action against rampant heresy and apostasy within the clergy and the hierarchy will bring the crisis under control. But this involves looking into the future; that, let us leave to Our Lady of Fatima who said: "he will do it, but it will be late".
The neo-modernists are very well aware that doctrine is changed with pastoral practice. Lay "theologian" and adulterist theoretician, Richard Gaillardetz, wrote the following, which has been brought to our attention on numerous occasions by The Vox of Vox Cantoris. It is the core, the evil heart of the Modernist argument in favour of the adulterist and homosexualist heresies.

I've written previously about words originating in the National Catholic Reporter by Richard Gaillardetz and repeated ad nauseam as his own, without attribution, by Thomas Rosica, CSB. It must be repeated here to underscore what is written by Spadaro and reprinted below:
"Will this Pope re-write controversial Church doctrines? No. But that isn't how doctrine changes. Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge such that particularly doctrinal formulations no longer mediate the saving message of God's transforming love. Doctrine changes when the Church has leaders and teachers who are not afraid to take note of new contexts and emerging insights. It changes when the Church has pastors who do what Francis has been insisting: leave the securities of your chanceries, of your rectories, of your safe places, of your episcopal residences go set aside the small minded rules that often keep you locked up and shielded from the world."
Where are we headed? If Rausch, Gaillardetz and the whole gang of neo-modernists get their way - towards heresy and schism. Rausch writes:
"... Francis’ approach, according to Dr. Gaillardetz, is one that emphasizes the “pastorality of doctrine.” Dr. Gaillardetz states that doctrine must be interpreted in relation to the core Christian kerygma and in light of the pastoral context in which it is being applied. He adds that Francis has “admitted to a certain reluctance to speak of ‘absolute truth,’ not because he was a ‘relativist’ but because, for Christians, truth is mediated through a relationship with a person, Christ. As such, truth is always encountered in history.”
Truth is now reduced to "history". Our Lord is twisted by Rausch to imply a figure for "theology turned into history" (c.f. Ratzinger, Introduction to Christianity, p. 34, Herder & Herder). History, which constantly changes, as does its interpretation, leaves us with emptiness when facing Christ. These modernists no longer believe in truth.
Yet, the fact remains: Jesus Christ the same, yesterday, today and tomorrow.
A final note: one wonders why Thomas Rosica CSB felt the need to re-tweet the Rausch article?
