The Holy Season of Advent…
On August 6, 2017, Pratt and Faris (the mother of their child) announced their legal separation. On December 1, Pratt filed for divorce. On October 16, 2018, it was announced that their divorce has been finalized. As of July 2018, he is in a relationship with author Katherine Schwarzenegger.So much for the love of a father for his child.Pure and unending love...? The way we love our children...? How our Father in heaven loves us...?"Merry Christmas"?
I think we can love the sinner and hate the sin. But the child isn't the sin and even a sinner can speak the truth eloquently. Let's take the Truth wherever we find it.
And this reminds me of a new or neo-Puritanism that is entering Catholicism and thus leading to a silent schism or is it noisy? Why did the Protestants leave the Catholic Church? Why did Protestantism then fragment into smaller sects? Why did Puritanism develop? Because there is a group of "super Christians" who can't stand Original Sin and the corruption it has wrought which affects even Divine institutions . Did God make a mistake in creating Adam and Eve in HIs own likeness. Do we need another God? The pursuit of perfection sliced away from the true Church always leads to perdition. Why? Because of Original Sin. We simply can't get rid of its results on our own try as we may to reinvent ourselves and the Church.
Yes, we can love the sinner and hate the sin.But we should also keep in mind "By their fruits you will know them."Mr. Pratt talks a good talk about "pure and unending love" and about loving children as our Heavenly father loves us.But when his actions are almost diametrically opposed to his words, we see where his heart truly lies and any talk of "neo-Puritanism" goes out the window.
