When it comes to true and balanced origins science, it is clear that man was created by God. Adam & Eve were willed into existence instantaneously. God created mankind for His Glory, and humanity represents the pinnacle of God’s created works. We are created in God’s image & likeness, which gives us a unique place in His created order. Man has a rational soul which animates & informs the body. For these reasons, life is precious, and Catholics have a duty to protect & celebrate the gift of life. When it comes to the gospel, the overall theme is clear; Jesus has come that we may have life, and have it to the full. This theme springs from God’s Special Creation, which is the sure foundation for our culture of life.
The strength & depth of our Catholic faith
The Catholic Church around the world has provided her flock with a resilience against the culture of death. In Italy the Catholic faithful have been working effectively in reducing the number of abortions through education. 80% of the Italian medical profession have conscientiously objected to partaking in abortion procedures. This is assisted by their constitutional right to object. This then translates into a healthier prospect where in some regions in Italy, there are no abortions being provided. In the USA, Fr. Frank Pavone has been working very effectively in creating headaches for the abortion industry. In the state of Kentucky, abortionists been been driven out by stealth. In Ireland, the pro life movement has been most effective in keeping abortion mills at bay. At present it is still illegal, yet the government are determined to force it through. Even still, the Catholic Church has really had a positive effect on her flock in terms of keeping up the pressure for a culture of life. But the move away from the traditional doctrine of Special Creation by fiat and towards theistic evolution has weakened the contemporary Catholic faithful somewhat. Theistic evolution creates confusion as firm truths become undermined. Faith is the lodestar to reason, and origins science needs this lodestar in order to be true & balanced. Theistic evolution however makes reason the lodestar which puts the cart before the horse.
The power of our Catholicity has yet to be fully restored
Special Creation by Fiat is the sure foundation of the Catholic Church. When we rediscover this perennial truth, we will be re-ignited with vigor for our Lord. This realization will help us as Christians to defeat dark powers that ever threaten us with a culture of death. Theistic evolution has done untold harm to the Catholic faithful, and to our culture of life. It has created confusion in origins science matters. It is time to investigate what our much loved saints really have to say about God’s creation account. The more you research the further you discover that they faithfully believed in Special Creation by Fiat. They held to a sure foundation to the culture of life and the Catholic faith.
