Katholisch Leben!

Den katholischen Glauben kennen, leben, lieben & verteidigen!

Ich finde es immer wieder interessant, wie Menschen bei Wohnungsbewerbungen bei katholischen Liegenschaftsabteilungen, bei Bewerbungen bei kirchlichen Arbeitgebern oder einfach nur auf ihrer Homepage anführen, wie katholisch sie sind oder waren - Ministrantentätigkeit, Pfarrgemeinderat etc. Sie haben aber offenbar keine Probleme damit, mit ihrer Freundin zu schlafen ohne mit ihr verheiratet zu sein, schwule Aktivisten zu unterstützen, die sonntägliche Messe zu verschlafen, es mit der Wohltätigkeit nicht so genau zu nehmen und vieles mehr. Wo genau fängt denn hier das Katholisch-sein an?

Getting Known

Posted on September 2, 2016 at 1:00 PM

I absolutely dislike it when Catholics want to see their name get big. You know them - trying to get every interview on TV and radio, writing books, being on all the Catholic websites, kissing butts of Catholic celebrities so their light will shine on them too, getting pictures with bishops, cardinals, and finally - the Pope. They go on demonstrations - not without letting everyone know so they hit the headlines the next day. If you listen a little to what they are saying, it actually sounds quite shallow. You have heard it before and better. However, those people are really good at marketing themselves. It is all about them. They want to be known and make money out of it. The problem with that: It is actually the opposite of being a humble Catholic who wants to see the name of His Savior and His bride, the Church, known and loved...

I-Know-It-All Christians

Few things I dislike more than those I-know-it-all Christians. You know them: Whether asked or not they give an endless monologue on everything and love to hear themselves talk. It is futile to even start a discussion with them, as their point is not a reasonable argument but winning the fight at all costs. They look down on others and think themselves something better, but of course hide that behind Christan phrases and common places.

In a way I feel sorry for them. If you are so convinced of having the ultimate and complete truth you do nothing else than playing God. Idolatry and pride is the antidote of Christian love and humilty. They prevent you from finding the real truth - God.

Overly pious Christians

Sometimes I get so tired of overly pious Christians. In Germany, we have a saying that means something like "holier than the Pope". I guess this was what Jesus had in mind when He got angry about those who took the laws as something that exist just for itself - and not as a something that was meant for the good of humans (take the healing on Sabbath for example). Maybe this is why so many "out there" still hold on to the belief that Christians are hypocrite. Where there is smoke, there is fire. If you set a law as a goal in and of itself - instead of a means to a goal (holiness) - then you will always fall short of it and look hypocrite asking it of others.
