How the conciliar progressivists use new meanings for the same words
to change the Catholic Faith and Church

peccato redemption guimaraes

Like lightning in a dark storm, this Volume reveals many obscure things that we cannot clearly see in today's tempestuous life of the Church. We have become accustomed to believe that when post-conciliar Popes, Bishops and priests confusedly speak about Original Sin and Redemption, they are repeating the traditional doctrine of the Council of Trent. This is not so.

Based on Vatican Council II, they are spreading a new theology to replace these truths Catholics profess in the Creed that characterize our Holy Religion.

New concepts of evil, sin, Redemption, grace and the Sacraments have taken over Catholic Theology and are completely destroying its past majestic structure and content. Learn about this new doctrine, the principles that orient the attack, and how to defend yourself and the Catholic Faith from this gigantic onslaught of the post-Conciliar Church and its theologians.

The Introduction to Peccato - Redemptio

This Volume X, Peccato – Redemptio, follows in logical sequence the previous Volume IX, Creatio. It deals with original sin, Redemption, grace and the Sacraments according to the new visualization of the progressivist current. It is, therefore, an expression of the thinking of this current and, at the same time, an expression of the fruits of Vatican II in these important parts of Catholic Dogmatic Theology.

Our Savior warned us: “By their fruits you shall know them” (Mt 7:20). Applying this criterion to Vatican II, the Reader can evaluate the length and depth of the consequences of the Council and, thus, can better know its nature, tendencies and objectives.

First, we will present a summary of Catholic teaching on original sin (Chapter I). Then, we will see how the Council dealt with this topic (Chapter II), as well as the principal positions of the Vatican in the post-conciliar period (Chapter III).

With these presuppositions established, which in good part already reveal the progressivist intent, we will offer the Reader an overview of the strategy of this current in its attack against the dogma of original sin (Chapter IV). A list of in-depth perspectives on the origin of evil and sin (Chapter V) will help the Reader to better comprehend the direct and indirect attacks Progressivism is perpetrating against Catholic doctrine in this matter (Chapter VI). Once the new conception of original sin is exposed, it is imperative to have a notion of the progressivist standpoint on Redemption (Chapter VII), grace (Chapter VIII) and the Sacraments (Chapter IX).

This is the plan of the present Volume.
As we move forward in describing the fruits of the Council and analyzing its thinking, we face a difficulty analogous and symmetrical to the one we encountered in the initial Volumes of this Collection.

In those volumes, we offered the Reader some short previews of the progressivist thinking under analysis so that he might have a better understanding of the themes addressed. Here also, to achieve the same goal, we feel the need at times to present short reminders of topics already studied. In the earlier books, we indicated the demonstrations of the topics in the Volumes to come; in this work, we point to the demonstrations in past Volumes.

The reason we adopted this procedure is because of a special characteristic of the progressivist doctrine.

Since the progressivists suppose that God is immanent in Creation, (1) the themes that concern the hierarchical, majestic and holy edifice of Catholic Dogmatic Theology find themselves jumbled and blurred. Everything that is clear, defined and coherent in Catholic doctrine becomes a confused, promiscuous and chaotic ensemble in the progressivist doctrine. Thus, after confusing God and Creation, they cause even greater havoc when dealing with sin, Redemption, grace and the Sacraments.

What importance should be given to original sin and other sins when Creation, instead of being considered a perfect fruit that issued from the hands of the Almighty, is envisioned as nothing but a defective process, a reflection of an eternal kenosis? (2)

How can the original sin of man be objectively distinguished from an initial sin in the “Jerusalem from above” or even a primordial “sin” in God himself? (3)

What can be said about the Redemption of Our Lord Jesus Christ when it is conceived as a process of liberating the divine latencies immanent in the universe, which evaporate – more or less independent of any objective guilt on the part of man – to form a hovering pneuma (4) that would constitute the “mystical body of Christ,” understood as a vaporous Cosmic Christ? How can one distinguish between such a “redemption” and the process of universal evolution defended by the progressivists? (5)

What would be grace for the progressivists except a divine force that draws the material cosmos to ascend toward the spirit and the spirit toward God? How does one establish boundaries between grace and nature?

What would the Sacraments be, except channels for this “grace” to act in a more intense manner? Again, what distinguishes the supernatural from the natural?

The simple enunciation of these questions shows that these themes intermix confusedly, making it difficult for us to separate them and present an exposition that does not fastidiously repeat itself. One could say, therefore, that to present the progressivist thought well, it would be better to expose it plainly and simply and draw from it all the consequences.

On the other hand, to present the fruits of the Council that destroy Catholic Dogmatic Theology, it is indispensable that the latter be presented in its general hierarchical order, that is, to consider its various parts in an ordered way.

In an attempt to harmonize the benefit of exposing progressivist thinking with the need to present the fruits of the Council, we will divide the themes according to the different parts of Catholic Dogmatic Theology; then we will make either detailed demonstrations on the new subject matter or short summaries of what we have already analyzed on progressivist thinking. Following this method, we hope to avoid fastidious repetitions and appraise the fruits of Vatican II in their whole.

Chapters I, II, III, VI and VIII will systematically analyze the progressivist thinking on original sin and grace and its opposition to Catholic doctrine. Chapter IV is an overview of the progressivist strategy. Chapters V, VII and IX will present ordered recapitulations of subjects already studied in this Collection.
