I was this close as I took this photo! That must make me pope!
Dr. Bill strikes again with his questioning faith. But wouldn't it be better for him to question his theology and agenda? Of course his pride doesn't allow him to do that, so I'll do it for him. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Here is Dr. Bill's latest editorial in the Macon Telegraph. As though Holy Mother Church is like a political entity like the government, he questions not only that which can be questioned and should be, to grow in one's faith and understanding, but he questions also defined teachings that won't change. The following is the Macon Telegraph's Dr. Bill Cummings editorial in Sunday, July 6th newspaper. My comments are in RED:
Why is it so difficult to question Faith? We question everything else. Is it because faith is so personal and private and particular to our own very deep convictions? (No Dr. Bill, that's your own fierce American individualism which you should really question. Faith is first and foremost a gift given to us by God and is communal such as the gift of faith given to God's chosen people. It has private and personal aspects, but the Faith, well it is a given; it is communal!)We all think that our faith is right, don’t we? At least it’s right for us, otherwise we’d change it. (Catholic Faith isn't like Protestantism where we change it at will and if it is changed it has to be on the sensum fidelium, not the unfaithful desires of the flesh.) But many people also think that everybody who belongs to “their faith” must think exactly like they do, and they bristle when they read or hear a “believer” with an opposing view. Are you like this? (Again, Jesus is the head of the Church and we are the body and together we comprise the Church and the Lord is our source of unity, but now in a visible way through the Bishop of Rome and other bishops in union with him. Maybe Dr. Bill missed this in the Second Vatican II documents? I really question is learning in this regard!)
