Skip to comments.Catholic word of the Day: AUGUSTINIANISM, 05-17-11
Posted on 05/17/2011 9:08:45 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random):
The thought of St. Augustine and his followers. In a more technical sense, the theological explanation of St. Augustine, approved by the Church, of man's fall, divine grace, and the freedom of the will in co-operating with the grace of God. Within Augustinianism, there are numerous schools of thought, all part of the Church's theological pluralism.

One could spend a whole lifetime just learning about St. Augustine. He lived 75 years — must have been quite unusual then.
More disinformation peddled by Rome. Augustinianism was primarily concerned with debunking the Pelagian heresy of the “free will” of man. At the time, Rome didn’t have its head quite so far up the Tiber and they sided with Augustine. Later, the equally demonic Semi-Pelagian heresy took root and brought us the bizarre cult we continue to find in Rome. And, tragically, many of the so-called Protestant groups bought into this same error.
Here’s to Augustine, and to the best known (former) member of the Augustinian order, and truly a student of the Bishop of Hippo.
I will continue to pray for you. Your obsession with the Roman Catholic Church may one day lead you home to this one true Church founded by Christ.
The DAFFYNITIONARY continues.
Well, I certainly welcome anyone praying for me. Curious that you perceive correcting the avalanche of propaganda put out by adherants of the Roman cult as an "obsession". What then shall we call their disinformation campaign?
And, I am home in the Body of Christ, the One True Church founded by Jesus, the Messiah of Israel, the Rescuer of the Elect, the First Born among many Brethren. I am just working to help those trapped in Rome's clutches to escape. You, too, would be welcome in Christ, should He permit it. But, thanks.
I don’t remember seeing anything about an infallible Pope or bowing to Rome or ancestor worship (Saints) in the Bible.
I thought Jesus came to offer us Salvation for our sins.
Amen my brother
Clement Of Rome (A.D. 69): "Let us therefore approach Him in holiness of soul, lifting up pure and undefiled hands unto Him, with love towards our gentle and compassionate Father because He made us an elect portion unto Himself...Seeing then that we are the special elect portion of a Holy God, let us do all things that pertain unto holiness...There was given a declaration of blessedness upon them that have been elected by God through Jesus Christ our Lord...Jesus Christ is the hope of the elect..."
The apostles have preached the gospel to us from the Lord Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ [has done so] from God. Christ therefore was sent forth by God, and the apostles by Christ. Both these appointments, then, were made in an orderly way, according to the will of God. Having therefore received their orders, and being fully assured by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and established in the word of God, with full assurance of the Holy Ghost, they went forth proclaiming that the kingdom of God was at hand. And thus preaching through countries and cities, they appointed the first fruits [of their labours], having first proved them by the Spirit, to be bishops and deacons of those who should afterwards believe. Nor was this any new thing, since indeed many ages before it was written concerning bishops and deacons. For thus says the Scripture in a certain place, "I will appoint their bishops in righteousness, and their deacons in faith."
Amen, my sister. Fantastic words, full of truth and insight into the real Message of the Bible. Thanks.
That he slipped into utter idiocy does not make a certain observation worth noting.
Notice no mention of a priesthood..or "mass" because there was none in the NT ... there were to be elders/ bishops and deacons but no priesthood .. The priesthood was fulfilled on the cross.. and in Israel in 70 AD .... no more priesthood..
Nicely done, Red. I’d say more but I need go off and worship some ancestors....
The early church understood the gospel
Barnabas (A.D. 70): “We are elected to hope, committed by God unto faith, appointed to salvation.”
That reads as pretty candid, honest, Biblical, to me.
I have no need to throw rocks at her. Rock throwing tends to be a pretty hazardous hobby ~~Quix quote
Aren’t you mistaken?
The title of the dictionary is Fr. John Hardon’s Modern Catholic Dictionary

My description of your obsession is based on my observation that you frequently barge into Catholic threads with your anti-Catholic rants. I was not referring to just your comments on this thread.
I am sure that you truly believe all of your misguided notions about religion, but I pray the Holy Spirit will enter your heart and show you the light.
May God bless and keep you.
