MHFM: Satan's Useful Idiots
Faith

The Crossroads at 23rd Street

 

"For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools." (Romans 1:22)

 

Errors can be corrected and trends reversed if only our faith and determination does not fail us in our earnest quest for the truth.

MHFM:
Satan's "Useful Idiots"


"For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths." (2 Timothy 4:3-4)

In political jargon, a "Useful Idiot" is a derogatory term used for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's issues / goals, and who is cynically "used" by the cause's leaders to further their purpose.

That political jargon can easily be transposed into a religious idiom and used to identify the adherents of a number of today's small, tiny, and otherwise insignificant, but nevertheless non-negligible, Catholic breakaway sects using various social media platforms to promote their "cause" and increase their base.

I'm of the opinion that the term "Useful Idiots" describes well all those affiliated with non-sanctioned purported Catholic religious communities (sects like MhFM); whose "cause" promotes doubt, adversity and schism within the "rank and file" of the fourth level of the Church referred to as the Domestic Church.

The Domestic Church is the family, the home, the smallest body of gathered believers in Christ.

Satan doesn’t march into our lives leading a loud brass band, but instead he comes as a "deceiver” sowing subtle seeds of doubt, disobedience, and reward into our hearts and minds.

He does so with the firm intent of "seducing" us into confusing “good with evil” and “evil with good” and luring us away from our families, friends, and the sacraments of the Church.

As inferred in the Parable of the Tares (St Matthew 13:36-43), Satan understands that to have any chance of thwarting God’s redemptive plan, he must recruit as many “Useful Idiots” as possible to assist him in sowing his divisive seeds into the fertile soil that is used to provide Christ’s Universal Church with its discipleship, sanctification, and holiness (i.e. the Home).

Satan's Useful Idiots aren't necessarily persons of "low intelligence”, but they are indeed persons who are misinformed, naive, and ignorant of the “facts” concerning the current status / emphasis of Christ's Church on earth today.

Satan’s Useful Idiots are persons with “itching ears” who’ve succumbed to the perverse teachings being extrapolated across social media by recruited charismatic propagandists (like the Dimonds).

In order that we, as the “rank and file” within the Domestic Church, may protect ourselves and our loved ones from falling prey to the snares set by Satan’s Useful Idiots, we must remain on guard against those who come to us via social media, denigrating the bishops of the Church, and presenting themselves as being the last true purveyors of Catholic candor, dogma and doctrine in existence.

The Church holds that laymen (like the Dimonds) are not authorized to participate in the Government and/or Teaching Authority of the Church, but rather they are subject to it.

The sacrament of baptism does not invest in laymen the powers and authority of the priesthood; something that can only be bestowed upon a person by the laying on of hands of those possessing the apostolic authority to do so; which, concerning the Dimonds, is not the case.

Those who enter the Church by the sacrament of baptism enter not as Teachers but as Students; willfully submitting themselves to the teachings imparted to them by the bishops of the Church; and to whom they, as the laity, are subject to.

The governing of the Church is not democratic; it is not one in which laymen can vote to delegate, restrict or remove its ruling or teaching authority at their pleasure.

Beware of Satan's Useful Idiots.

Beware of wolves dressed in mail-order monk's habits.
