New Sungenis vs Dimond debate

Good points Greg, Greg and Tim.

I am also barely clinging to allegiance to the visible Roman Church. I find that I just ignore the Popes of the past 50-60 years, their teachings and personal actions. Unlike the ultramonanists (for lack of a better word) who cling to every action and word of the pope as heaven sent, I cling to the frequently confirmed teachings of their predecessors. Even in the case of humanae vitae, all of the teachings therein have at some point and in some wise been affirmed long before in a less ambiguous language.

In all simplicity, ignoring teachings on Papal authority, supremacy, infallibility, etc, one can see that the Popes Paul VI and up have broken with tradition in many regards. By their actions they have not just committed sin but led their sheep out of the fold of Christ. Scripture does tell us that so small a minority (and I am not claiming to be part of that minority) shall cling to the true faith in this time of apostasy; "Many are called but few are chosen" "How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!" "When (I) return shall I find Faith"

Certainly the one billion who call themselves Catholics shall not all enter by that narrow gate. "Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able." If few who search for the gate find it, how many more are lost who do not even bother to search for it.

Truly, when we contrast the individual and collective teachings of post VII with pre VII churches, a child can see the parallels in method and material. The Vatican II church uses ambiguity, human centered teaching, and novelty. The Catholic Church is authoritative, pure and God centered in teaching. How can I take a men who destroyed the Latin rite Mass, brought about sweeping changes in novelty, set forth a catechism of opinion, and promulgated a lax disciplinary code, to be true vicars of Christ?
