Another Instance of Post-Resurrection Docetism in the Breviary VIVIFICAT! - May 13, 2015 ... risen body. I wonder if during the heyday of liberal Christology from the 70's through the early 80's this docetic subcategory was being considered in all seriousness, to help prepare the faithful for the time that the Jesus Seminar and/or archeologists dug out Jesus' body somewhere in Jerusalem. If his body was found, no harm no foul because the Church could function very well with a docetic faith! Well, the influence of the Jesus Seminar work has since waned and now passes only as a ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/cybercatholics/jrWV/~3/xi9lDoVUcy4/another-instance-of-post-resurrection.html
In Praise of Dualism GETTING TO THE POINT - May 11, 2015 ... evil. We know in the fullness of Christian revelation that this is the work of grace in us, and of the Holy Spirit bringing to us the grace of Christ, in which our own efforts are only a small (if necessary) part. But here and elsewhere in the biblical revelation the point is to highlight the radical and sharp delineation between what is good and what is evil. It is worth noting in this psalm, however, that the two are sharply delineated, but are not really parallel. And the difference between ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/05/in-praise-of-dualism.html

He was put to death insofar as fleshly existence goes, but was given life in the realm of the spirit . He went to heaven and is at God's right hand, with angelic rulers and powers subjected to him. The highlighted portion and the skipping of verses 19-21 makes this selection sound as a text-proof for a kind of Docetism - similar to what the Jehovah Witnesses (JWs) teach regarding the bodily Resurrection of Jesus , which, they maintain, was ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/cybercatholics/jrWV/~3/rXQmspcaw9o/yes-liturgy-of-hours-in-english-need.html

The Prayer of the Innocent Man GETTING TO THE POINT - February 16, 2015 ... so we have (among other things) the sacrament of reconciliation to cleanse us of sin. Well, what are we to do with this psalm, then? Ignore it? Edit it from future editions of the Bible? Scoff at it, deconstruct it, implicitly or explicitly deny that it is an inspired text just as much as 'the Lord is my shepherd' or 'Praise the Lord, all you nations, acclaim Him all you people'—the psalms, in other words, that may flow more readily from our mouths? The Church has never seen fit to do ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/02/the-prayer-of-innocent-man.html
The First of All the Creeds GETTING TO THE POINT - January 26, 2015 ... shepherds from the Pope to the rawest newly ordained priest are merely imperfect servants of. I wrote a series of blog posts on this psalm a couple of years ago , and said quite a few lovely things about it then. What strikes me about it this time around is that this psalm is a wonderful medicine against fear, anxiety, discouragement—all the emotions that swirl up in us in difficult times and make us want to flee from life or give up the struggle. Psalm 23 perpetually comes to us with a ...http://frdenis.blogspot.com/2015/01/the-first-of-all-creeds.html
