Evangelicals on the Canterbury Trail
Thu, 02 Dec 2021 18:43:08 +0000
This blog is going to be a little different from the usual. Normally, I address a Catholic audience, but this time I’m going to address my Evangelical brethren. I’m going to speak as a former Evangelical, as one who’s been there, and understands the issues. I make no pretenses here.
Why I Don’t Believe in the Rapture
Sat, 27 Nov 2021 02:51:55 +0000
Catholics do not believe in the Rapture. It’s not part of our eschatology, and it violates historic tradition on this matter. For that matter, the Eastern Orthodox don’t believe in the Rapture either, nor do the Coptic Christians, nor do non-Evangelical Protestants. In fact, the majority of Christians, throughout the
The Social Kingship of Jesus Christ – In America
Tue, 23 Nov 2021 03:09:38 +0000
JESUS IS KING! But what does that mean? How do we act as instruments by which the Kingdom of God may shine through? I am an Integralist. That means I believe governments should be subject to the basic principles of Christian religion. Let me clarify that in stating that I
The King James Version (KJV) Only?
Mon, 15 Nov 2021 21:10:13 +0000
The King James Only movement is growing among Evangelicals as of late. This is probably the biggest growth I’ve ever seen of the movement in my lifetime. The King James Only movement is a Protestant quirk, popular among some Evangelical Fundamentalists, wherein they assert that the King James Version is
666 – The Mark of the Beast
Thu, 28 Oct 2021 21:50:11 +0000
Having grown up in the 1970s, and surrounded by Evangelicals in Southern California during the “Jesus Movement,” I have heard many theories about the Mark of the Beast. When I was a kid, they said it would be a tattoo, and it would probably be your Social Security number, combined
Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is
Wed, 13 Oct 2021 19:08:50 +0000
Do not confuse the Catholic Church with the corrupt hierarchy. These are two totally different things. The Catholic Church has been infiltrated by corrupt clergy in the past. And each time, these corrupt clergy were defeated not by schism, (the Protestant solution), nor by miracles, (the unlikely solution), but rather
The Ozarks – A Missionary Field for Catholics
Wed, 15 Sep 2021 13:18:27 +0000
A Eucharistic Procession in Springfield, Missouri — Photo Credit: J.B. Kelly The Ozarks are a small mountain outcropping that extends west of the Mississippi River. They are, in actuality, a westward extension of the southern Appalachian Mountain chain, though much smaller, and the last mountains one will see before entering
Interview with Tony of Reverent Catholic Mass
Tue, 14 Sep 2021 05:01:43 +0000
In the wake of Traditionis Custodes, the recent papal decree that severely curtails the availability of the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM), many Catholics have been scrambling to find reverent Catholic liturgy. Some bishops have already banned the TLM in their dioceses, others have cut back on its availability. On the
COVID-19, Christianity and Common Sense
Tue, 31 Aug 2021 17:07:26 +0000
Christianity has seen many plagues in its bimillennial history. COVID-19 is by no means the first, and it likely won’t be the last. Overall, as far as plagues go anyway, COVID-19 has proved to be a mild one, even if it is global in nature. This is not meant to
I Love the Catholic Church, and That is Why I Criticize its Leaders
Wed, 11 Aug 2021 18:40:38 +0000
“In accord with the knowledge, competence, and preeminence which they possess, [lay people] have the right and even at times a duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church, and they have a right to make their opinion known
How To Use St. Gregory’s Prayer Book
Tue, 27 Jul 2021 19:55:41 +0000
St. Gregory was the name of the pope (Pope St. Gregory the Great) who dispatched St. Augustine of Canterbury to convert the English in AD 595. The St. Gregory’s Prayer Book (SGPB), available directly from Ignatius Press and most book retailers, is a prayer book designed for all English-speaking Christians,
The End of an Era
Mon, 19 Jul 2021 21:44:35 +0000
We have reached the end of an era. Pope Francis Apostolic Letter Traditionis Custodes has revoked and nullified Pope Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Letter Summorum Pontificum which liberalized usage of the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal) throughout the Church. For that matter, it also nullified Pope Saint John Paul II’s Apostolic
Western Civilization will Fall: Abandon Ship!
Tue, 13 Jul 2021 01:30:51 +0000
It’s no secret. I’ve been harping on this topic for years, and so have many others. I know it’s unpleasant to talk about, and people would rather not hear it, but it needs to be said. Western Civilization (the remnants of Christendom) is collapsing, and it will soon completely implode.
The Church is Kingdom Israel
Mon, 21 Jun 2021 21:34:01 +0000
Probably one of the greatest errors in modern Christianity is the theological error of Dispensationalism, which leads to the political error of Christian Zionism. Dispensationalism is the idea that God deals differently with people at different periods of history. Most notable is the notion that God deals with Jews and
The Catholic Alternative in Traditional English
Tue, 04 May 2021 12:00:00 +0000
For some time now, I’ve encountered many Catholics who have expressed their frustration to me about the situation in their local parishes and dioceses. Though the location and circumstances are radically different, the complaint is almost universally the same. Some come from the Northeast, some from the West Coast, some
Was the 2020 Election Fraudulent?
Tue, 04 May 2021 02:07:30 +0000
I, Shane Schaetzel, categorically reject the 2020 election results. I believe they were fraudulent and Joe Biden is an unelected president. I will always reject the 2020 election results, as there is too much evidence the election was fraudulent, and I no longer believe in the American electoral process as
The Beginning of the End
Thu, 22 Apr 2021 22:44:40 +0000
Before you read on, please watch this short video, which will help explain the context of this essay. Our Lady of Fatima foretold that before her Immaculate Heart would prevail, entire nations would vanish from the earth. I am 100% convinced the United States of America is one of those
The Coming Schism and How to Prepare
Fri, 09 Apr 2021 02:44:20 +0000
The National Catholic Register has been doing an incredible job covering the impending schism in the Catholic Church, and I dare say, they are spearheading the journalistic charge. That’s because those folks at the Register are smart, and they’ve got their ear to the ground on this one. They are
The Early Church Was Catholic
Wed, 07 Apr 2021 00:13:39 +0000
One of the arguments put forward by anti-Catholics, often of the Evangelical flavor but not always, is the notion that the Catholic Church was “invented” by Emperor Constantine in the fourth century. The idea here is that Emperor Constantine hijacked Christianity when he legalized it in AD 313 with the
The Only Good Catholic is a Bad Catholic
Tue, 30 Mar 2021 23:51:52 +0000
The only good Catholic is a bad Catholic. That’s the unofficial position of the US Democratic Party (DNC). What does that mean? It means as far as the US Democratic Party (DNC) is concerned, the only good Catholic is one who doesn’t really believe or practice the Faith. In other
