TRENDING AT PATHEOS Catholic
What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • John Zulauf

    He even uses Protestants occasionally. Weird, huh? I remember your attempted flight from the hound of heaven.

    “I’m going out to have a long fight with God, and I think I know who’s going to win,” he grumped, pausing at the point of grace.

    My push to really consider becoming Catholic came from a fallen away Catholic who told me my objections to the Church were straw men.

    Though I don’t think I can say I’m a gamer, I suppose videogaming is within my extended environment, so it’s not as odd to me as it may be to others.

    As for the article, what the author says demonstrates the problem I have with injustice as an argument. That his mother should not be in “the heaven she prayed to” I would think supports what he says about the absence of a divine plan. If this world is so lacking in fairness and righteousness, why should she be in heaven? What grounds are there to support an exception to be applied to her? Because he thinks she deserves it? Because he can’t bring himself to believe otherwise?

    From what he has written, the author seems to have difficulties with justice, and not simply the apparent lack of it. And I should hope I sympathize with those problems. But I’m afraid I can’t say any of that constitutes an argument.
