Mark: Is this link five years old?
Well spotted! Yes, it looks like it. The comments are also labelled “5 years ago”.
So what? Mark cannot be instantly aware of everything that appeared on the Internet. I assume that he finds new things when he has some time to just browse, or that his readers, like myself, send him links to things they have discovered. Nothing wrong with that. After all, the Gospels were written… what? almost 2000 years ago, and they are still current.
I asked a question. I wasn’t sure. And I wasn’t sure if Mark meant to post a five year old link.
I was in Manhattan this summer and I saw that I was at a square of some kind. I asked the two guys next to me, “Where is this?” One replied, “New York.” I thought that was a flip answer so I replied, “2015?” And he replied, “Yes.” And I said, “Good, then there’s still time.” BTW, it was Cooper Square.
Oh this ought to get good REAL quick. 🙂
“the false seers have set themselves up financially, they have married and live a wealthy life, to say the least.”
Is that they have married an indication of being false seers?
I think you missed about 85-90% of the sentence.
I accept all the other reasons given in the sentence for thinking they are false seers. But being married? as if marriage per se argues against their being visionaries?
I think the point I is wealth, add it is mentioned twice in one sentence.
As for marriage and loving a nice, regular life, that should give us pause. The reason is NOT that there is something wrong with marriage, but rather that their actions spectacularly deviate from, what I understand, is the example of every single approved visionary in the church.
If a claimed visionary retires to a convent or monastery, like Fatima’s Lucy, rather than become another Joel Olsteen, while that doesn’t PEOVE falsity or truth, it is certainly something one should take note of. It’s like one encountering the majesty of God, and being apparently unaffected by it.
Considering the vapid trash these particular people spread, you don’t even need that, though.
Joke of a post – Go there before you whine about it not being real or authentic. You are willfully blind.
Do I need to go to a brothel before I make up my mind about it too?
I think St. Ignatius’s advice calls into play here–look for the tail of the serpent.
