GENERAL JUDGMENT - And the two groups.
1. The Feast of Christ the King.
This is the last Sunday in Ordinary Time. Holy Mother the Church ends teaching her children the Catholic Faith today. By now everyone following the Liturgy that is well and properly celebrated should know all the teachings of Jesus Christ as proposed by the Church. At least that....that they should know all the teachings of Jesus Christ. Whether they have put it into practice or not is another thing.
By now any Catholic should know if they have Faith or not; thus they should know if they can hope to go to heaven or not. Though some can know more about their chances through obedience to the commands of Christ which they should have learned through the year; some can know less through neglect, distraction or whatever reason. The former could have grown from Faith to Hope and Charity. While the latter could have even lose the little Faith they had.
Because by now our instruction on the Faith is complete, at least we should know how each one of us will be judged when Christ comes basing it on the norms He gave in today's Gospel.
The first are those who were evangelized. They are divided into two. Call them the good and the bad. Both have heard the Word of God. The good heard the Word of God and gave their assent to it. Thus they have supernatural Faith. This Faith is shown by their knowledge and obedience to the commands of Christ as taught in the New Testament. The bad, likewise, heard the Word of God. The word entered their ears and went into their minds but they did not give their assent to it. Thus they do not have supernatural Faith shown by their ignorance and disobedience to one or more commands of Christ as enumerated in the New Testament.
Both the good and the bad mentioned above will not join the line on earth that will be separated into the sheep and the goat.The good will not join the line on earth that will be judged because they will rise and meet Christ in the heavens as He descends on the earth. The Gospel states, 'they are already saved' so there is no need to judge them. The bad is described in the Gospel as 'they are already condemned' because they did not believe. Therefore neither the good nor the bad will line up because they had already been judged.
For puposes of analysis, Pope Benedict, Cardinal Burke, Pope Francis and Cardinal Kasper would fall under this first category. We shall put them in their proper places later.
The second are those who have not heard the teachings of Christ in the New Testament. But they know the law of nature as God had imprinted it in their hearts; i.e. the natural law that is detailed in the Old Testament and known by all men. These will be divided into two; the line on the right side will be the sheep (those who have observed the spirituality of the Old Testament which is the life of repentance) while the line on the left side will be the goats (those who could have repented but did not.)
The sheep on the right side are souls who have not heard the Words of Christ in the New Testament but who knows and have obeyed the commands of God the Father in the Old Testament which is written in the hearts of men. Actual grace enabled them to know in a clearer way the commands in the O.T. and enabled them to obey those commands. This is repentance that leads to natural Faith. It is not yet the supernatural Faith of the New Testament. It is clear that all the commands they obeyed as enumerated by Christ the King in His judgment are all Old Testament commands; feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, visiting the sick and the imprisoned, etc. And they showed ignorance of Faith in Christ thus asking; 'when did we see you hungry?'
The goats lined up on the left also knew the commands of the Old Testament as written in their hearts. Though given actual grace to know and obey those commands, they neglected to learn and obey those commands.
3. Note that the first group who were already judged and, therefore, will no longer line up with the sheeps and the goats because they are already saved or condemned were judged on the basis of supernatural Faith as the Gospel states. And this Faith is visible as acts of obedience to the commands of Christ as enumerated in the New Testament.
Note that the second group who were judged as sheep and goats were saved or condemned based on obedience to the command of God in the Old Testament on 'love of neighbor.' And Christ who will judge them precisely said; 'because you did it to the least of my brethren you did it to me.
4. But who is the least of the brethren of Christ? It is not anyone. It is not necessarily your wife, your husband or your children. 'He who obeys my commands' in the New Testament, he is my mother, my brethren, the least of my brethren. For those to be deserving to be sheep, they should have performed the act of love of neighbor to a person 'with Faith." Not to any person. How can this happen? As St. Paul wrote; when God sees one who has not heard the word of God obeying the law of 'love of neighbor in the Old Testament, God will send him a man of Faith or even an angel so he can do the good work to the 'least of the brethren of Christ,' i.e. a man of Faith or an angel thus making him worthy to be among the sheep.
5. The Bishop's Synod.
When the group of Cardinal Kasper headed by Pope Francis, himself, proposed to abolish the sins of adultery and sodomy, that is in effect telling souls to do evil in disobedience to Christ's command to repent of one's sin. To do so is the greatest sin against Faith.
St. Thomas described three sins against Faith, which will show one has no Faith and, therefore, is not a member of the Catholic Church. The first is the sin of pagans who have never heard the Word of God, and this is the least serious. But it is still a sin. The second is the sin of the Jews who heard the Word of God and rejected it. This is more serious. The third is the sin committed by Pope Francis, Cardinal Kasper and their group wherein they have learned the Word of God in the seminary, in their masses and in seminars and they refused to be subject to the command of God that states that their proposal was against the commands of God. That is the worst sin against Faith that shows one has no Faith, is not a Catholic and cannot be a valid Pope. St. Thomas continued to say how to treat people such as Francis, Kasper, Marx, Tagle, Eterovic, Volpi, etc. etc. Have absolutely nothing to do with them and never submit yourself to them less you lose your own Faith. St. Thomas continued saying that people like them who refuse to subject themselves to the Law of God will convince others to do likewise.....thus dragging others to unbelief and to condemnation. That is why they go around making papal visits with those kind of cardinals.
Because of their refusal to subject themselves to the commands of Christ as stated in the New Testament, they definitely do not even fall under the category of sheep, not even goat. Because they do not fall under that category, having heard the Word of God. They fall under the category of those already condemned because they did not believe. Well, at least they do not have to line up with the sheeps and the goats because they will go ahead...........
