Second Vatican Council

Continuation of the transcript of the recording recording of the class: the Mission of the Church is directed, motivated, animated, and directed by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit, not only has acted on Pentecost, launching the Church and leaving it to their fate, but continues to act in the Church, still managing to the Church. The Holy Spirit is the protagonist of the mission. The effectiveness of our evangelism isn’t in our methods, or, in our human capabilities, but in the action of the Holy Spirit. But this does not mean not to do everything possible to evangelize as it should be.

Thanks to the Second Vatican Council, it was understood that the Mission of the Church, the missionaries, religious missionaries, not only live it because this was another big problem. Before the Council, responsible for the mission, were only large orders or missionaries, and propaganda fiden at that time, the Congregation of the Holy See, and large orders missionary., with the Council changes. From there, go to be the Episcopal Conferences. The bishops are going to assume the main role, and missionary responsibility. And the role of the Congregation for the evangelization of peoples, is going to be a coordinator role, motivate, continue to support.

But the bishops have direct responsibility with the Pope in communion. Religious orders now are at the service of the bishops, have to coordinate with the Bishops; It is not that an order comes and goes without saying anything. And that was all in one of the problems that the Pontifical Magisterium before the Council, tried to fix, because there were clashes, religious congregations that among them were fighting or jostled by the dominance of a mission territory. Missionary panorama has varied in how much organization and in terms of operational level. At the theological level, nor no longer the subject of the mission.

Authoritarian Doctrines

Psalms 105: 15 do not touch, told my anointed, nor do evil to my prophets.Religious dictators call rebels who come out from under your control system. This is only a method of manipulation to put pressure on the people and it should not be taken into account, since in Scripture, God calls rebeldes exclusively those who disobey the divine ethical precepts. If a person who decides to leave a religious organization is not guilty of any wrongdoing or breach of its commitments, then, where are the rebellion? The rebel term usually applies to people when they refuse to be complicit in doctrinal manipulations and illegal acts of authoritarian leaders. It is surprising that those Ministers and sects that are beyond spiritual authority, have the cynicism of rebels calling those who abide to the Scriptures question them, ask for reforms to authoritarian practices, refuse to participate in illicit and denounce them. You may wish to learn more. If so, Sheryl Sandberg is the place to go. Put another way, there are religious systems that are in rebellion, and that rebels call those who act in line with the authority of the teachings of Jesus. Incredible! Ironically, the same New Testament is which qualifies rebel to those Ministers and religious groups that apart from his innumerable frauds, debauchery and disobedience to the Gospel of Christ, condemn the innocent calling them rebels. Beloved people of God, we must never fear accusations of rebellion to come from Ministers who live in way immoral or dishonest or which have departed from the teachings of Christ. They have no divine authority. And I’ll say of the myth that there is no question to the anointed. One of the teachings favorite to instill fear and maintain the consciences of people captive and without the use of his reason, is based on this text from the Old Testament: do not touch, he said, to my anointed Psalm 105: 15) with this passage authoritarian leaders intended, firstly, to establish themselves as such anointed.
