From our friends at Gloria TV:
The Austrian philosopher Thomas Stark analyzes in a recent panel discussion in Vienna the base of modern theological errors. The panel was organized by “Una Voce Austria”. A video is here: “There are sinister ideologies underlying the New Mass”
Erroneous Trio: Mentality of Change – Evolutionism – Gnosticism
Stark points to a recent interview of the new General of the Jesuits, Arturo Soza. He suggested to reinterpret the words of Jesus according to a changing language, context and culture. Stark summarized this position as the following mentality: “Things always change. We don’t know what our Lord really said. It all depends on several changing contexts.”
The ideological layer behind the described mentality is for Stark evolutionism: History is – in nature and in society – seen as an uprising development , that makes things – always and automatically – better and better.
Stark sees underneath the mentality of change and the ideology of evolution another deeper layer: the metaphysics of Gnosticism: “It says in its core, that not only the world is developing, but that the Absolute in itself develops by flowing into its own creation.”
Three views of the world: Heathendom, Christendom or Gnosticism
In Gnosticism the Divine cause of everything develops itself by the evolution of nature and culture: “The gnostic metaphysics has been constructed at the same time, when the Catholic Church started to lay down her theological foundation by means of Greek philosophy – in the second century.” READ MORE HERE
REMNANT COMMENT: Professor Stark–perhaps the premier traditional Catholic intellectual in Austria today–is an old and dear friend of The Remnant. Please read this article, and then watch the video. Few Catholics in Europe today understand better the truly gnostic nature of the heresy of Cardinal Kasper. If you want to know Kasper and, by extension, Francis, study the work of Professor Thomas Stark.
