This might seem fun at first, but it will eventually get really old, really boring, and really frustrating! This is a good example that also includes compassion and love.In John’s Gospel, the scribes and Pharisees present an adulterous woman to Jesus. (It is interesting that His compassion was counter-cultural. ) He frees her of this capital offense, but then tells her not commit sin ever again. Jesus freed her from a death sentence and instituted a rule to keep her safe from any and all forms of death; sin. We live in a society that promotes indulgence, and everyone feels entitled to their way.Imagine a baseball game where no foul balls or strikes were ever called.Or a football game where there was no out of bounds.Pope Paul VI, in his monumental encyclical Humane Vitae (July 1968), made some startling predictions about what would happen if contraception became widely accepted.It has been over 45 years since this document was written and people still believe he was wrong.When I was teaching at previous high school, I would often run into this issue about rules (especially when it came to moral theology).
To sum things up a bit, there are three “categories of belief” in regards to Church teaching: Teachings that are divinely revealed, […] A friend took me to a Christmas dinner at a local pub noted for its good food.
We find countless examples where God gives us freedom before He institutes rules.
I will concentrate on three specific examples from Sacred Scripture that prove this point. At the beginning, God gives Adam and Eve dominion over all the earth; the plants, animals, all living things.
(John 8:1-11 NAB) This crime was punishable by death (stoning). Her response is, “No one, sir”, to which Jesus exclaims, “Neither do I condemn you. “If you love me, you would let me live my life my way! Whenever I hear people talk about the lack of love in our world, I am quick to remind that love is indeed, everywhere, however it mostly exists in a misconstrued form.” When I was teaching moral theology, my students learned a definition for love, composed by Eric Fromm: “Love is the active concern for the life and growth of that which we love.” Active concern means you always care.
Jesus says the one without sin may throw the first stone, and as He begins to write on the ground, each man leaves the area. Life and growth entails all forms of life and growth of your beloved (intellectual, physical, emotional, and spiritual). Everything in our world needs to be regulated, especially our behavior (and for good reason). We need rules so our lives can correspond with God’s original plan for us.
