Defining your own Soul: (If you don't know what it is you've lost it)

Nothing is more important to you than your own soul. It is your personal conduit or connection to the Holy Ghost, i.e., to the One Holy Triune God.

Vic Biorseth, Sunday, July 25, 2021
https://www.CatholicAmericanThinker.com/

How many Americans - indeed, how many American Catholics - don't think about their soul at all. Can't even define what it is. Are too busy with life to dwell on anything as ephemeral and other-worldly as the very idea of a soul and an afterlife for any length of time. It's a Sunday only thing; something to be reminded of now and then, and to try to not lose track of, but ... but ... we live in this physical world, and we've got to go back to work, and pay the bills, and take care of the kid's needs. And we need our recreation and our entertainment and our just relax time, too.

Everything in this world is a detraction from the importance of the soul.

The human brain is a remarkable engine that drives all the other parts of the human body, and, more importantly, it drives our thinking. And that, thought itself, is separate from the physical brain. It is immaterial, yet much of it is not ephemeral; memory, for instance, is long lasting, and unique, from individual to individual. But it is still immaterial. It is not part of the brain.

Atheistic materialists dispute that, and hold that human thought is indeed material, and can be scientifically examined, a notion we refuted in the Reason Versus Materialism treatment. But they still cling to it, insisting that all there is is matter. "Naturalists" know all about matter, which is natural, and they hold that there is no such thing as the supernatural. The very idea upsets their "natural" view of everything. 

They are wrong. 

So, what part of thinking is the soul? The soul is three interacting parts:

  1. Intellect
  2. Reason
  3. Will

It is the Spirit part of man; it is what separates us from all other animals. No other animal has intellect, reason and will. This is the most important part of the human mind, and it has the power to control all the actions of the human body and all of its parts. 

  • Intellect is the human capacity of properly recognizing possibilities and determining objective realities through reasoning. Intellect is formed (or deformed) by education and experience. 
  • Reason is the actual power of the mind to think and understand, solve problems, form logical judgments and come to recognize objective truth.
  • Will is the mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses a course of action. 

The one thing the atheistic materialists (Naturalists) will never understand is the very natural, pre-ordained, created, beginning state of the human soul. The human being, as yet unaltered by the world, instinctively knows that he is created, he has a Creator, and that his will must be aligned as perfectly as possible with the will of his Creator God.

Catholics know, or should know, a great deal about the will of God; it is in their very Catholic sensus fidei, their unique Catholic way of thinking. It is backed up by the whole sacred deposit of faith, the Revelation of God to man, which permanently closed with the death of the last original Apostle. 

The will of God is found in the original Gospel, which cannot be added to, subtracted from or changed in any way. No mere created man can dare preach another gospel and escape the ultimate will of God, as Paul said in his letter to the Galatians:

"I wonder that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel. Which is not another, only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach another gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: if anyone preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of God." [Gal 1:6-10]

Strong words. He said if "we", meaning, including him, Paul - or even an angel from heaven - preached another gospel, let him be anathema. There's no getting around it. We are supposed to separate from those who are anathematized.

But we haven't even anathematized them. 

We are called to know the Gospel, and therefore, we are called to know the will of God. 

In Weaponizing Everything, we identified the proper Catholic American priorities as being, first, God, then family, and then country. 

Aligning our will with the will of God is good for:

  1. our own eternal souls,
  2. our families,
  3. our countries. 

You cannot name the way in which personal alignment of your will with the will of God will harm your soul.

You cannot name the way in which personal alignment of your will with the will of God will harm your family.

You cannot name the way in which personal alignment of your will with the will of God will harm your country. 

Getting our priorities straight will not only get us into heaven, but go a long ways toward getting our families into heaven, and saving the soul of our nation. 

Even the various Protestants, who's intellect has been deformed by heretical education and upbringing, still have the residue of the original natural soul, in that they instinctively know that, 

  1. they are created, 
  2. their Creator God is all powerful,
  3. He loves them.

They can be loved and honored as our American brothers-in-arms, and loved and respected as honorable neighbors, even if they cannot be welcomed into full communion with us in the Catholic Church.

Why not?

Don't look now, but,

  • Sola Scriptura is a new gospel.
  • Sola Fidei is a new gospel.
  • Henry VIII's divorce and remarriage, and his new church, is a new gospel.
  • The Book of Mormon is a new gospel. 
  • The Jehovah's Witness Bible is a new gospel. 
  • Every denomination, including every non-denominational denomination, is a new gospel. 

Still, the true meaning of peace is the natural instinct to align your will with the will of God. If other Christians and Jews do that imperfectly or incorrectly, they still do it.

Real peace has nothing to do with war, or safety. What real peace consists of three things: knowing that our all-powerful creator God is real, properly fearing our God, and knowing that God loves us. That, and only that, is real peace. 

We need today to pay more attention to our souls because the soul is the conduit, the pipeline, the communication line between not only our animal side and our spirit side; it is our antenna by which the Holy Ghost can activate our wills, enliven them, and aline them with His will.

And whatever the Holy Gost says to any of us is of far, far greater importance than whatever the world has to say. 

That is your true nature. Your soul yearns for the comfort of God. To align your will with the will of God is to find true freedom. The better your do that, the better it will be for your own eternal life, for your family and for your country. 

Come Holy Spirit,
Fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth Your Spirit and they shall be created.
And You shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, Who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His Consolations,
Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

 



The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us

The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Sign the Letter to your Bishop, and make our Church Catholic again. 

Get behind President Trump, and make America Constitutional again.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
