THE CHURCH


 

 

DISINTEGRATION WITHIN THE CHURCH

Several factors contributed to the disintegration of the Catholic Church.  One of them is the growth of doubt which is the disturbance and uncertainty on what had once been certain doctrines believed in unity by all Catholics.    

Scientific discovery that attempted to explain beliefs disturbed man's mind, like the unproven and unscientific  statement that man evolved from lower forms of animals and how the universe began.  Add to this the corruption among the clergy that turned the faithful away from the sacraments, making the powers of the sacraments a mere illusion. By their behavior in church, most showed they don't believe in the Real Presence. 

Total ignorance of the Tradition of the Church by the clergy made them speak with uncertainty and their not-too-well-informed human reasoning worsened the situation.  Worldly and scientific reasoning became more attractive than clerical knowledge not based on tradition.

The ignorance of Tradition by the clergy weakened the structure of the Catholic Church.  Because the clergy was uncertain, the faithful began to doubt.  In the early Church, the Christians were so sure of their beliefs that they were willing to die for it.  Today, Christians are so uncertain, they would not give up anything for their religion.
