Do You Believe on God or The World?

12th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Lord, in your great love, answer me.”Ps. 69

The issue is not whether one believes or does not believe, but what each one chooses to believe. If it is not in what God teaches us, it will be in what I hear from humans, influenced by the culture of the moment. To the extent that man moves away from God and his revelation becomes more unhinged and prioritizes his natural instincts over intelligence, reason and faith that is what distinguishes us from animals. Everyone decides what they believe, for better or for worse. Decide well in whom and in what you put your faith!

Today’s world has been openly and blatantly radicalized against all the values of God and the same wisdom, which is no longer the same as common sense, because it is increasingly scarce; It is as if deifying himself, he is jealous of any other God who wants to impose something on him, because he wants to decide everything, even if they are absurd things and out of reach, such as deciding if he is a man or a woman, or what is true or false, or lowering the temperature of the sun, or reaching 100 more years of life.

Man without God is the most worthy of compassion, because he does not accept or want to accept the precariousness of his temporal life in this world, which is a consequence of sin, and not believing in God does not believe anything he came to tell us, so he does not believe in the soul, nor in life after death. So you will greatly fear your own death or that of a loved one and suffer much more. He has no capacity or reason to accept the cross every day, and he will live in constant rebellion bumping into reality itself, for not accepting the teachings of God.

The deified man dares to say what is right or wrong, and decided to say that it is normal to be blind, that those who see (those who accept reality and call it by its name) are a threat and must be muzzled and censured. They decide that sin does not exist, that it is okay to kill whoever wants to die, to kill the elderly who no longer serve, to kill babies while they are not born, that it is okay to choose the sexual tendencies they want regardless of their sex, etc.

And the dramatic thing is that they want everyone to submit to these dictates, and that we call a woman who wants it, even if he is a man; that we approve of their sexual perversions, even if it is with minors, that we approve of their immorality of all kinds,..; Either we think as they dictate or we are a threat that must be gagged, censored and punished, because according to them we commit hate crimes and a lot of other invented labels to change the wisdom for the madness of their ideas and beliefs that they want to impose on everyone.

What happens is that reality and truth will always prevail, no matter how much one does not want it and opposes it; man will remain man in all his cells until death, even if he does not like it. You cannot change your color, your height, or the limited length of your life. Before God, what is wrong will remain wrong forever, even if man calls it good. And this will be revealed and their non-acceptance of the truth will be bitterly wept away, for not wanting to know about God and for preferring darkness to light. Although the child believes himself to be superman, if he throws himself out of the window he will not fly and kill himself, because of his lack of knowledge and his absurd belief.
