A so-called “Catholic IQ test” is doing the rounds on Facebook. It’s a significant time investment, but at the end of it, you’ll get a handy reading list to shore up your knowledge of the Catholic faith.
I need to re-read the Old Testament, and revisit early Church history.
Section Correct Score Bible 33/37 (89.19%) History 13/15 (86.67%) Morality & Virtue 22/22 (100%) Heaven & Hell 12/12 (100%) Prayer 8/8 (100%) Dogma 9/9 (100%) Anti-Catholics 15/15 (100%) Sacraments 11/11 (100%) Mass 19/19 (100%) Special Days 8/8 (100%) Religious Nobles 15/15 (100%) Church Information 23/23 (100%) Miscellaneous 8/8 (100%)
Here are the things missed on the Catholic IQ Test:
THE STORY OF JOB.
You should read: the book of Job in The Old Testament.
THE HISTORY OF ISRAEL (Samson and Delilah).
You should read: the book of Judges in The Old Testament.
THE FIRST-CENTURY ROMAN EMPEROR WHO PERSECUTED THE CHURCH.
You should read: Christ the King, Lord of History (TAN Books and Publishers).
You are being sent into Hell forever … outside of the God’s Catholic Church.
The vatican-2 heretic cult (founded in 1965 at the Vatican) *cannot possibly be* the Catholic Church … since it *enforces* the opposite, the opposite, and the opposite of the Catholic Dogma (the actual Catholic Faith).
The Catholic Faith *is not* Bible interpretation … it is the Catholic infallible Sources of Dogma (which has been ruthlessly hidden from you, and which you must know). The Catholic Church didn’t even define the Bible’s New Testament Canon until 397 A.D. at the Council of Carthage.
The founding documents of the vatican-2 heretic cult … the “vatican-2 council” documents … have well over 200 heresies *against* prior defined Dogma.
Site > Immaculata-one (dot) com
Section 12 > Anti-Christ vatican-2 heresies (50 listed) … followed by many Catholic corrections.
Sections 13 and 13.1 > Photographic *proof* of heresy at the Vatican.
Because of … the Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or for physical participation in a heretic cult (such as the V-2 cult) …
… we were all placed, body and soul, outside of Christianity (the Catholic Church) on 8 December 1965 … the close date of the “council”.
Section 13.2 > Catholic Dogma on automatic excommunication for heresy or participating in a heretic cult such as … vatican-2, lutheran, methodist, evangelical, etc.
Section 19.1 > Dogma on Abjuration for *re-entering* Christianity (the Catholic Church) … after being automatically excommunicated. A Formal Abjuration is also provided here.
Section 13.3 > Matt 16:18, Gates of Hell scripture … is *not* about the Papacy … defined at four Dogmatic Councils.
Section 10.2 > Returning to a state of grace, in places and times when Confession is not available, like now.
Section 13.6 > You’re not a Catholic priest and you never were.
Thanks for passing by Mike. Pray for me.
Father, please accept my apology. I came across a little strong in my last comment. Thanks for having me here.
@ Michael Bizzaro
Wow. Just wow.
May God have mercy on your soul.
Cathy its interesting how maliciously judgmental you are. As one saint said your rash opinions of me and my moral culpability probably speak more about your wickedness – anything you would like to admit?
I do not agree with the comments of Mike about Vatican 2. However Cathy you were out of line. You should not have judged Mike’s soul and saying “may God have mercy on your soul” is not only uncharitable but actually sinful. You have no right to say whether he is damned and requires mercy.
Cathy is that how you evangelize? Is that how you think you are going to convince Mike he is wrong but saying “may God have mercy on your soul”? I feel sorry for you if thats the case.
bad fruits of Vatican 2.
Mike you should not judge every Christian by the actions of Cathy. I can promise you that most of us are not like that. Sure we disagree with you, but we are happy to hear your comments. Please dont judge the rest of us bc of Cathy! Please check out those resources listed by Clarissa they sound great.
You should know that in every place you go you will find rude people. Im sure even in your community you have rude people. I apologize for Cathy’s rudeness.
Mike, Vatican II, affirmed all the previous Councils of the Catholic Church. It also re-enforced that all Catholics must hold all of the dogmatic statement from those councils to be de fide.
If you read the Vatican II documents with the tradition and from the perspective of sacred tradition you find nothing in conflict or change.
Mike, every single Council has dissidents and trouble after it is help. On the one hand you have schismatics like yourself who reject the magisterium in light of their own personal individual desires and on the other side you have those who misrepresent what the Council declared.
Finally Mike, while dogma cannot and does not change, it can develop as theologians like myself flesh out the implications of a doctrine. The first 4 centuries of the Church are an example of how we were able to flesh out the nature of God and example how the divinity of Christ came together with the Paraclete to be the Trinity. Indeed it took a while for some to understand the Holy Ghost was fully God.
Mike I think you would like three resources very much. The first is ‘The Pope, the Council, and the Mass’ by James Likoudis. The second is ‘Vatican II: The Crisis and the Promise’ by Alan Schreck. Finally you must read ‘What Happened at Vatican II’ by John W. O’Malley.
Read those – they are not long and very accessible. Once you finish stop by again and I would love to hear your thoughts.
I will read them and get back to you.
Is it cheating to “study” before the test?
Yes! Do it properly and with some dignity.
