Very few of the clergy will make it to Heaven: they have too much to answer for Part 1

God created Adam and Eve immediately out of the dust of the earth. Their creation was instantaneous, so that effectively rules out any theory of evolution. By the way, the original sin was eating from the tree of science (knowledge), which can be interpreted as seeking knowledge of good and evil and the truth on one's own, without taking God's moral laws or God's explanation of the universe in the Bible into account. This is what human science does: it tries to give a natural explanation instead of what the Bible says of God's Creation of the world.

Jesus Himself tells us who will make it to Heaven: He says that unless you become like little children, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven. He is saying that you must trust completely like a child in God's Word and promises in order to enter

 

Clergy have grown lax

Catholic churches and schools are being closed down everywhere in the United States. The Archdiocese of Miami alone (to which I belong) closed 14 churches in 2010. Many of you may be wondering why the churches are closing. The answer is very simple. The clergy have grown lax, and have ceased teaching and believing in the truths of the Catholic Faith for a very long time.

When is the last time that you heard a priest preach from the pulpit against the evils of abortion, artificial contraception, premarital sex, the sin of homosexuality, pornography, immodesty, going to X-rated movies, addiction to drugs, etc. In fact, when is the last time that you heard Mortal Sin, or the absolute necessity of being in a state of grace before going up to Communion, mentioned in the sermon?

Their problem is the sin of unbelief. They are in the first to deny the doctrine of the original sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve. They even reach the point of denying the real existence of Adam and Eve. Yet it is an infallible teaching of the Church that

   

Heaven. Seeking to use your intellect to explain away certain passages of Scripture as not being literally true, like the burning bush that Moses saw, or the passage of the Israelites through the Red Sea, or the multiplication of the fishes and loaves by Jesus, smacks of the sin of intellectual pride. Intellectual pride, by the way, is a more formidable obstacle to holiness then even pagan licentiousness.
"Outside of the Catholic Church, there is no salvation"
To deny the infallible Ex Cathedra dogma that, "Outside of the Catholic Church, there is no salvation" makes one a heretic, no more, no less. I have heard several times from the pulpit priests say that "We used to believe that, but no more." Pope Eugene IV solemnly defined this teaching in a Papal Bull (Cantate Domino (1441): "The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the "eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41), unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that
