Understandable…. I confuse a lot of people. I am 100% (in my humble opinion) loyal to the Catholic Church and all that that statement implies…. but I am a student of theology and a Catechism teacher for adult RCIA members.
Sometimes I ask “controversial” questions because I like getting other Catholics to think for a change.
The Apologetics 101 arrogance of “Rome has spoken, case closed!”… (however correct) is quite ineffective for evangelization…. it actually turns a lot of people AWAY from the Catholic faith.
I wish more were like you, Victor…. people who seem to actually enjoy thinking about WHY we believe, instead of apologetics which serves only to “prove” WHAT we believe. I find very little theology in lay-apologetics today…. it’s more about winning a debate than conversion of sinners…. what a waste of God given grace.
