People lose faith sometimes because they’ve grounded it in the wrong place. They have grounded it in men, rather than God.
The Catholics who vote for a candidate who supports Planned Parenthood are misguided and are in no means truly living their Catholic faith. They are the wrong representation of Catholicism, and should not be seen as those living in accordance with Catholic Church teaching. As a 20 yr. old Catholic man I can say how angry and frustrated I am at those who claim to be Catholic yet vote contrary to the faith.
But the truth of our Catholic Faith isn't in men, who when they turn from God are full of error, it is rooted in Christ Jesus and His church.
I understand the feeling of doubt, frustration and anger over why God would be allowing these things to happen. But we have to remember that we don't know the mind of God. He gave us the freewill to choose our own behavior, and He honors our free will by letting us either choose to follow Him, or reject Him.
I'm angry and confused! But we have to put our faith and our roots, in God, not man. If our God were to suddenly zap everyone with lightning the moment they turned from Him, then what kind of God is that? He allows us to choose, but then, also allows us choose His love and mercy as we come back to Him.
These "catholic" politicians in our world today shouldn't be swaying us from God, but binding us closer to Him. We need to pray for them to realize what they’re doing. If we let them, they who have let Satan influence a change in them, change us, then we're only allowing Satan to win even more than he already has. Don’t give the enemy any more ground!
God Bless you. Zac.
