A difficult question for my fellow Catholics in faith.Submitted by Realdeal on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 12:13
I'm a life long Catholic. It is my faith. It will remain my faith.
I'm sure you're aware of the Vatican document, "Toward Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public Authority," that was released in 2011 that recommended items such as forming a global government, creating a world bank, and redistributing wealth through out the entire world of nations. See Catholic News Story for specifics: http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/1104173.htm
I realize that humans have frailties and the church is made up of men. I've always understood that Jesus mistrusted the government and that men are instructed to do good out of free will, and not by force.
It pains me to ask this, but my question to you is, how are you able to reconcile your faith with that which we believe to be true about freedom and all that freedom entails?
