Beware of the Charismatics

If you aren’t familiar with the Charismatic movement within the Church, please get to know it but only for the purpose of recognizing how awful and protestant it is.  Please warn your friends and family to stay away if they want to remain part of holy mother Church.  The article below effectively sends a cannonball into the side of the Charismatic armada.

The charismatic movement: a howling wasteland of starving, gibbering idiots

Mar 03, 2016

Just for the record…

Someone asked me today what I thought of the “Charismatic movement” in the Church.

“A charismaniac friend of mine tells me that mass with his ‘community’ tends toward two hours long because of periods of private prayer and contemplation after readings and communion.

What do you think of this?”

I respond:

“I think that yodelling in gibberish has never been identified by any spiritual writer as either ‘prayer’ or ‘contemplation’. And I think that people in the charismatic ‘community’ are mostly severely mentally and/or socially damaged folk who mostly can’t find their heads with both hands and a GPS and can’t be trusted not to fall into demon worship. I think the charismaniac movement in the Church is a result of bishops not giving a shit about their flocks’ desperate need for real spirituality, and deliberately starving the sheep until they’ll eat acorns and tulip bulbs just to survive.

“Everything I’ve seen of the ‘charismatic’ movement seems to involve the slightly less damaged and helpless, and therefore more successfully predatory, using the vast, savage and waterless wasteland of modern pseudospirituality as a hunting ground for weak and sickly prey. A manifestation of the stupid and often-evil leading the blind, lost, desperate and starving into a scummy alleyway and robbing them of everything they need to survive, beating the crap out of them and then tossing a wad of Canadian Tire money onto their barely breathing form.”

I went to a few charismaniac things in Halifax, back in the day, and the day they decided that, because the young immigrant fellow from Poland hadn’t yet been “given the gift of tongues” that he must be possessed, and that they would immediately start an exorcism was the day I got outta there as fast as my wee legs would carry me. When I butted in and said that this was very strictly forbidden to do by laypeple, and extremely dangerous, I was told, “Oh, that’s just a bunch of Church bullshit. We’ve got the Holy Spirit.”

I legged it. If I’d had an ounce of charity in my wretched soul at the time, I would have grabbed the young idiot by the scruff of the neck and dragged him bodily out of there.

But I didn’t. God forgive me.

As for Charismaticism, I’ve never come across anything that more brazenly stank of Stan.

Stay Far Far Away from Charismatic Catholicism

We here on this blog every few months or so warn all Catholics and normal people everywhere to run away as fast as you can from a Charismatic Catholic parish.  They are very dangerous places to rest your soul.  It appears that the word is getting out.  It is a protestant movement and its goofy and makes your skin crawl.  Please share this with anyone you know that thinks the movement is legit.

UNMASKING THE CHARISMATIC HERESY “For the time will come when people will not tolerate sound doctrine but, following their own desires and insatiable curiosity, will accumulate teachers and will stop listening to the truth and will be diverted to myths” 2 Timothy 4:3-4 – “False messiahs and false prophets will arise and will perform signs and wonders in order to mislead, if that were possible, the elect” Mark 13: 22 – “The smoke of Satan has entered the Church” Pope Paul VI

“But the church has endorsed the Charismatic movement, which means it is okay.” John Paul II called it the “greatest movement in the history of the Church”

or

“How can it be a heresy when the charismatic renewal is a movement approved by the Vatican? The movement as a whole is recognized by the Holy See. Last Pentecost, one of CCRNO’s (Catholic Charismatic Renewal of New Orleans) leaders, Patti Mansfield, spoke at the big Pentecost Mass in Rome.”

Is this what people call APPROVAL? Lot’s of things went down in Rome over the ages that were er… regrettable or should not have taken place. Suffice to say though, none of THOSE have been “approved” by the Holy See. And by the way, lay people speaking at the Mass is what the Vatican calls LITURGICAL ABUSE!

The truth is the Church has NOT given a de facto endorsement of the movement, as it can only be approved if it is faithful to the Magisterium.

It is worth mentioning that there has not been a single official declaration or papal pronouncement about the Charismatic Renewal. Aside from the pope reading out welcome messages to charismatic delegations, often written by the leaders of the very groups themselves, there has not been any OFFICIAL approval or disapproval. The pope receives all sorts of groups and individuals and has kind words for every visitor. The fact that there are charismatic parishes in the USA is quite inconsequential in the scheme of things; after all, they also have clown liturgies and cookie masses.

What Rome embraced has been clearly expressed in the Catechism, Canon Law, and by various encyclicals. Yet in forty years, no official directive has come out concerning the Charismatic Renewal. No matter how vocal the movement gets or how high its proponents happen to be on the ecclesiastical ladder or how many bishop councils endorse it, none of these are binding directives for the laity. Don’t let them fool you, until the Catechism is actually revised to include charismatic theology or at the very least a papal encyclical comes out in support, Catholics are not expected to conform to charismatic theology. And since Rome has NOT made charismatic theology part of her mandate thus far, it is actually imprudent for the Catholic clergy and laity to promote it.
