THE SIN OF OUR FIRST PARENTS BECOMES OUR INHERITANCE TOGETHER WITH ITS DESASTROUS CONCUPISCENCE WHICH IS THIS CONSTANT INCLINATION TO COMMIT SIN. HERE JUAN PABLO II TEACHES US IN “DOMINUM ET VIVIFICANTEM” #35: SIN BELONGS TO THE SUPERNATURAL SINCE IT IS AN OFFENSE TO GOD. WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND SIN ON THE HUMAN LEVEL. THIS IS WHY RELATIVISM IS SUCH A TERRIBLE HERESY WHICH PENETRATED OUR CATHOLIC CLERY. Leemos Juan Pablo II:
“The Spirit, therefore, who "searches everything, even the depths of God," knows from the beginning "the secrets of man."133 For this reason he alone can fully "convince concerning the sin" that happened at the beginning, that sin which is the root of all other sins and the source of man's sinfulness on earth, a source which never ceases to be active. The Spirit of truth knows the original reality of the sin caused in the will of man by the "father of lies," he who already "has been judged."… Only the Holy Spirit can convince concerning the sin of the human beginning, precisely he who is the love of the Father and of the Son, he who is gift, whereas the sin of the human beginning consists in untruthfulness and in the rejection of the gift and the love which determine the beginning of the world and of man.”
1)-GOD THE FATHER, WITH MUCH PAIN AND SADNESS, HAD TO BANISH AWAY FROM HIS PRESENCE OUR FIRST PARENTS, BECAUSE THEY SUBMITED THEMSELVES TO SATAN. THEY CALLED GOD A LIAR AND WORSHIP SATAN. GOD CREATED OUR FIRST PARENTS IN HIS IMAGE AND IN HIS LIKENESS. HE ELEVATED THEM TO SHARE IN HIS DIVINE LIFE WITH THE GIFT OF SANTIFYING GRACE. ALSO HE ORNATED THEM WITH THE 4 PRETERNATURAL GIFTS, MAKING THEM IMMUNE TO IGNORANCE, IMMUNE TO SICKNESSES, IMMUNE TO CORRUPTION OF THEIR BODIES AND SOULS, AND FINALLY IMMUNE TO DEATH. OUR FIRST PARENTS GRAVELY OFFENDED GOD; THEIR OFFENSE REACHED RIGHT INTO THE HEART OF THE BLESSED TRINITY.
2)-THE SIN OF RELATIVISM IN OUR BISHOPS AND PRIESTS DESTROYS THE ROAD TO SALVATION. BISHOPS AND PRIESTS, UNDER THE PRETEXT OF NO TROUBLING PEOPLE WITH THE HORROR OF SIN, ARE ASKING US TO SOFTEN OUR TEACHING ON SIN THE ORIGINAL SIN, AND SIN IN GENERAL. CARDINAL SANDOVAL OF GUADALAJARRA, HIS CATECHISM TEACHES THAT “SIN IS JUST TO SAY NO TO GOD.” WHAT A SHAME FOR A PRINCE OF THE CHURCH TO DIMISH THE HORROR OF SIN TO CORRUPT SO MANY SOULS WHO WILL NEVER ENJOY THE GLORY OF GOD.
3)-BENEDICT XVI TEACHES TO SIN ONE DOES NOT NEED TO WILL SINNING. TO SIN, ONE ONLY NEEDS TO COMMIT AN ACTION, A THOUGHT OR A DESIRE THAT GOD PROHIBITS. TO COMMIT A MORTAL SIN HOWERVER, A PERSON MUST REALIZE 3 CONDITIONS; FIRST, THE MATTER OF THE SIN MUST BE GRAVE. SECONDLY, THERE MUST BE SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE. THIRDLY, THERE MUST BE A FULL CONSENT OF THE WILL. FOR EXEMPLE, A PERSON WANTS THIS BICYCLE WHICH DOES NOT BELONG TO HIM OR TO HER. THE BICYCLE IS A GRAVE MATTER FOR BICYCLES COST HUNDRED OF DOLLARS. THE PERSON HAS SUFFICIENT KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. AND THE PERSON DOES IT WITH A FULL CONSENT OF THE WILL. THIS THEFT IS A MORTAL SIN THAT MERITS DAMNATION WITHOUT TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT. BENEDICT XVI TEACHES THAT ONE PUTS ITSELF IN THE GRAVE PERIL OF DAMNATION WITHOUT TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT, BECAUSE A MORTAL SIN HAS BEEN COMMITTED.
ALSO TO WORSHIP GOD ON SUNDAYS, THE DAY OF THE LORD, IS A GRAVE DISOBEDIENCE TO THE FIRST COMMANDMENT. WE REFUSE TO WORSHIP GOD BECAUSE WE FOLLOW THE CULTURE OF THE TIME. WE DO NOT THINK COMMITTING A MORTAL SIN; HOWEVER, WE REFUSE TO WORSHIP GOD WITHOUT TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT. WE COMMIT A MORTAL SIN. THE HOLY FATHER GIVES US THE EXEMPLE OF JUDAS, HOW JUDAS PUT HIMSELF IN HELL WITHOUT TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT.
4)-THE DISOBEDIENCE IN GRAVE MATTER OF OUR BISHOPS, PRIESTS AND LAITY TO THE TEACHINGS OF THE PRIESTLY CHURCH OF CHRIST PUTS IN THE GRAVE PERIL TO LOSE THE ETERNAL LIFE WITHOUT TAKING IT INTO ACCOUNT. TO DENY DOGMAS OF FAITH IS A VERY GRAVE SIN SPECIALLY ON THE PART OF OUR BISHOPS AND PRIESTS SINCE THEY ARE EXCOMMUNICATED FROM THE CHURCH. THEIR DISOBEDIENCE IS REALIZED IN THEIR QUEST TO LIBERATE THEMSELVES FROM THE AUTHORITY OF GOD IN OUR SALVATION.
5)-MODERN PSYCHOLOGY OR ANY OTHER HUMAN WAY TO ACQUIRE KNOWLEDGE CANNOT FIND THE REASON FOR THE SOURCE OF EVIL IN MEN AND IN THE WORLD. DISOBEYING IS THE WILL OF MAN AGAINST THE WILL OF GOD. ASI PUES, EL PECADO ORIGINAL IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL IN THE WORLD. JOHN PAUL II TEACHES in #33:
“This is the dimension of sin that we find in the witness concerning the beginning, commented on in the Book of Genesis.125 It is the sin that according to the revealed Word of God constitutes the principle and root of all the others. We find ourselves faced with the original reality of sin in human history and at the same time in the whole of the economy of salvation. It can be said that in this sin the "mysterium iniquitatis" has its beginning,
According to the witness concerning the beginning, sin in its original reality takes place in man's will-and conscience-first of all as "disobedience," that is, as opposition of the will of man to the will of God. This original disobedience presupposes a rejection, or at least a turning away from the truth contained in the Word of God, who creates the world.
6)-ADAM AND EVE MET THEIR DOWNFALL IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN. GOD SUBMITTED OUR FIRST PARENTS TO ONE TEST: TO WORSHIP HIM AND TO RENDER HIM HIS THE HOMAGE DUE TO HIS SOVEREIGNTY. IF THEY PASS THE TEST WITH FLYING COLORS, WITHOUT DYING THEY WERE TO BE UNITED WITH GOD IN THE GLORY OF THE BEATIFIC VISION OF THE BLESSED TRINITY.
WE WERE, THEIR DESCENDENTS, TO INHERIT THE PROMISE GOD MADE TO OUR FIRST PARENTS. GOD CREATED US TO LIVE. DEATH WAS NOT IN GOD’S PLAN FOR US. (Gen. 2:16-17).
7)-OUR SALVATION NOW IS TOTALY IN THE CROSS OF OUR REDEEMER. THIS FIRST SIN OF OUR FIRST PARENTS CHANGED FOREVER THE RELATIONSHIP GOD HAS WITH THE HUMAN RACE. IN THE GARDEN OF EDEN, OUR FIRST PARENTS HAD ONE COMMANDMENT TO FULFILL: TO WORSHIP GOD AND ONLY TO GOD TO RENDER HIM HOMAGE TO HIS SOVEREIGNTY. THE FIRST SIN OF OUR FIRST PARENTS CHANGED THE WORLD. GOD CAME BACK TO US WITH 10 COMMANDMENTS.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HUMANS TO FULFILL ON THEIR OWN ANY OF THE 10 COMMANDMENTS. GOD IS OFFERING US A NEW ECONOMY OF SALVATION TOTALLY NEW. THE REDEEMER, PROMISED IN Genesis 3:15, OFFERS US SALVATION TOTALLY CENTERED ON HIS CROSS. WITH JESUS PRIESTLY HELP, WE HAVE HOPE IN WORKING OUR SALVATION. THUS, JESUS REVEALS IN (Jn 6:65):
“and he said, for this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father.”
JOHN PAUL II IN #35:
“The Holy Spirit therefore convinces the world of sin in connection with this "judgment," but by constantly guiding toward the "righteousness" that has been revealed to man together with the Cross of Christ: through "obedience unto death."135
8)-TO FOLLOW JESUS IS SUPERNATURAL. WE KNOW THAT JESUS ENTRUSTED TO SAINT PETER TO GUIDE US IN THE TREACHEROUS PATH OF FAITH. WE DO NOT HAVE MANY GUIDES ON OUR WAY TO HEAVEN. ONLY ONE! ONLY PETER AND HIS SUCCESSSOS RECEIVED FROM JESUS HIMSELF THE KEYS TO HEAVEN.
BISHOPS, WHO DENY, OPENLY OR TACITLY, DOGMAS OF FAITH, THINKING THAT SUCH DOCTRINES BELONG TO THE PAST, HAVE ABANDONED PETER IN THE CHURCH. THEY DO NOT BELONG TO THE PRIESTLY CHURCH OF CHRIST. WHEN WE WANT JESUS, WE OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS, AS HE REVEALS TO US IN John 14:15,
“if you love me, you shall obey my commandments.”
9)-SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF ADAM AND EVE, WE ARE BORN WITH A CORRUPT HUMAN NATURE. WE ARE BORN WITH A CONCUPISCENCE WHICH ALWAYS INCLINES US TO COMMIT EVIL. OUR REDEEMER OFFERS US HIS PRIESTLY MEANS TO WORK OUR SALVATION.
10)-BENEDICT XVI TEACHES US THAT “GOD WANTS ALL TO BE SAVED. HOWEVER, OUR FREEDOM TO REFUSE SETS A LIMIT TO SALVATION.” WE HAVE THE FREEDOM TO ACCEPT JESUS’ PRIESTLY MEANS TO WORK OUR SALVATION. WE MAY ALSO USE OUR FREEDOM TO REFUSE JESUS’ PRIESTLY MEANS TO WORK OUR SALVATION.
11)-WE CANNOT ALONE FIGHT THIS BATTLE AGAINST OUR CONCUPISCENCE, THE CORRUPT WORLD and SATAN. ALSO OUR INSPIRATIONS TO THE INFINITE WILL NOT GUIDE US IN THIS ARDOUS FIGHT FOR THE PALM OF VICTORY. ONLY JESUS REVEALING TO US HIS PRIESTLY POWERS IS OUR HOPE TO ATTAIN OUR HEAVENLY GOAL. JESUS ENTRUSTED THE KEYS OF HEAVEN TOGETHER WITH HIS PRIESTLY POWERS TO PETER. HE GIVES PETER THE MISSION TO GUIDE US IN THE TREACHERY ROAD OF FAITH. HE GIVES PETER THE PROMISE OF INFALLIBILITY WHEN HE TEACHES US THE FAITH.
12)-OUR SALVATION IS WORTH A CONSTANT AND PERMANENT FIGHT AGAINST OUR CONCUPISCENCE, THE WORLD AND SATAN TO OBTAIN THE REWARD OF THE BEATIFIC VISION IN THE GLORY OF THE BLESSED TRINITY FOREVER. TO CARRY ON THE FIGHT HAND IN HAND WITH OUR REDEEMER IS A JOY TO EACH PILGRIM IN FAITH. WE KNOW WE ARE HAND IN HAND WITH OUR REDEEMER IN OUR STRUGLES WHEN WE OBEY THE MAN TO WHOM JESUS ENTRUSTS THE KEYS TO HEAVEN.
May the good Lord bless you with the abundance of His Love preparing us to celebrate Advent with the last Prophet sent to us by God. The professor.
