So "Progressive" As Not To Remain In The Teaching Of The Christ

For all that I whinge about the lectionary cycle, and the reluctance of many celebrants to use readings proper to the sanctoral cycle when there is an option, (and even when there isn't...)  weekday Mass has a real power in the continuous readings sometimes, and it is remarkable how often the seeming randomness of my days seems connected to the Lesson or Prophecy.

And sometimes, there is an admonishment that I really needed to be given that day.

And sometimes, I must admit, I wonder if the Holy Spirit is being ironic.

Many deceivers have gone out into the world,
those who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh;
such is the deceitful one and the antichrist.
Look to yourselves that you do not lose what we worked for
but may receive a full recompense.
Anyone who is so “progressive”
as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God.

Oh, really ?
