"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Theological Promiscuity: The Church Reminds Us Novelty Is Not a Good Thing

Theological Promiscuity: The Church Reminds Us Novelty Is Not a Good Thing
By:  Eric Gajewski
Curiosity leads to Promiscuity and promiscuity leads to doctrinal impurity.
We must recognize novelty and resist it 

Over the past year or so we have seen Antipope Francis try to “spin” the word novelty and make it appear as an Orthodox word.  This is typical behavior of a modernist but the Church before Vatican II reminds us that novelty is not a good thing and, in fact, equates the word novelty to heresy.  So, when we see Francis speaking about the “novelty of the Gospel” or the “novelty of love” (in a good sense) we must understand that we cannot accept this new verbiage. 

Indeed, the “new theologians” are theologically promiscuous and ultimately promiscuity leads to impurity.  The Conciliar Church is infested with novelty because this is what transpires from a previously condemned new theology.  It is only logical.   

Yet why do so many Catholics still follow Vatican II and these poisoned minds who have an ill understanding of what it means to be a true Catholic?  

 I suppose there are some who will argue that they would date the town’s hooker with the intention of hoping for a potential conversion.  Nevertheless, the Church reminds us that we must avoid novelty and heretics altogether.  Where heresy is a Catholic cannot be not even under the “it’s a valid Mass” excuse.

St. Vincent of Lerins speaks specifically to this topic of resisting novelty and those “aliens” who teach against the Faith.  It seems clear that Francis has never read what the Church has had to say on the topic or at least doesn’t care to reiterate novelty as a negative term.

"Also in the Catholic Church itself we take great care that we hold that which has been believed everywhere, always, by all. For that is truly and properly Catholic, as the very force and meaning of the word shows, which comprehends everything almost universally. And we shall observe this rule if we follow universality, antiquity, consent. We shall follow universality if we confess that one Faith to be true which the whole Church throughout the world confesses; antiquity if we in no wise depart from those interpretations which it is plain that our ancestors and fathers proclaimed; consent if in antiquity itself we eagerly follow the definitions and beliefs of all, or certainly nearly all, priests and doctors alike."

"What, then, will the Catholic Christian do if any part of the Church has cut itself off from the communion of the Universal Faith? What surely but prefer the soundness of the whole body to a pestilent and corrupt member?

"What if some novel contagion seek to infect the whole Church, and not merely a small portion of it? Then he will take care to cling to antiquity, which cannot now be led astray by any novel deceit.
"What if in antiquity itself error be detected on the part of two or three men, or perhaps of a city, or even of a province? Then he will look to it that he prefer the decrees of an ancient General Council, if such there be, to the rashness and ignorance of a few. 

"But what if some error spring up concerning which nothing of this kind is to be found? Then he must take pains to find out and compare the opinions of the ancients, provided, of course, that such remained in the communion and faith of the One Catholic Church, although they lived in different times and places, conspicuous and approved teachers; and whatever he shall find to have been held, written and taught, not by one or two only, but by all equally and with one consent, openly, frequently and persistently, that he must understand is to be believed by himself also without the slightest hesitation."
- St. Vincent of Lerins, "The Commonitory, book 1, chapter 2, no. 6-8, pp. 26-28. Emphasis added. 

With the advent of Vatican II theological lies have become the norm...
Here are some powerful quotes to use (ammo) in your defense against the Modernists, liberals and those who “thirst for novelty” in the Conciliar Church.

Cardinal Juan de Torquemada [1388-1468] was a revered medieval theologian responsible for the formulation of the doctrines that were defined at Florence. Cardinal Torquemada, who is considered an ardent "papalist", teaches: "Were the Pope to command anything against Holy Scriptures, or the articles of faith, or the truth of the Sacraments, or the commands of the natural or Divine law, he ought not to be obeyed, but in such commands he is to be disregarded." [Summa de ecclesia (Venice: M. Tranmezium, 1561). Lib. II, c. 49, p. 163B

"Who has lost and who has won in the struggle -- the one who keeps the premises [buildings] or the one who keeps the Faith? The Faith obviously. That therefore the ordinances which have been preserved in the churches from old time until now may not be lost in our days,... rouse yourselves, brethren,... seeing them now seized upon by aliens. ~ St. Athanasius, 371 (during the Arian Heresy)

A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, "You are mad; you are not like us. St. Anthony the Great

If I have against me all the Bishops, I have with me all theSaints and Doctors of the Church. -St. Thomas Aquinas

It is unlawful to add anything to the words of Holy Scripture regarding the sense.
St. Thomas Aquinas

Nothing can ever pass away from the words of Christ, nor can anything be changed in the doctrine which the Catholic Church received from Christ to guard, protect, and preach.
Bl. Pope Pius IX

Our teaching may contain nothing impious, nothing diluted.
St. Gregory Nazianzen

The nature of the Catholic faith is such that nothing can be added to it, nothing taken away. Either it is held in its entirety or it is rejected totally. This is the Catholic faith which, unless a man believes faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.
Pope Benedict XV

Fly to the Catholic Church! Adhere to the only faith which continues to exist from the beginning, that faith which was preached by Paul and is upheld by the Chair of Peter.
St. Hippolytus of Rome

This Apostolic Church never turned from the way of truth nor held any kind of error. It is imperative that nothing of the truths which have been defined be lessened, nothing altered, nothing added, but that they be preserved intact in word and meaning. This is the true rule of faith.
Pope St. Agatho the Wonderworker

And I hold it not with the understanding that a thing can be held which seems better and more suited to the culture of a certain age, but in such a way that nothing else is to be believed than by the words; and I hold that this absolute and unchangeable truth preached by the Apostles from the earliest times is to be understood in no way other than by the words.
Oath Against Modernism

Diabolical error decks itself out with ease in lying colors with some appearance of truth, so that the force of pronouncement is corrupted by a very brief addition or change, and the confession of faith which should have resulted in salvation, by a subtle transition leads to death!
Pope Clement XIII

The preaching of the Church truly continues without change and is everywhere the same. It has the testimony of the Prophets and Apostles and all their disciples.
St. Irenaeus of Lyons

God forbid we should falsify our faith!
St. Aithalas

Heretical teachers pervert Scripture and try to get into Heaven with a false key, for they have formed their human assemblies later than the Catholic Church. From this previously-existing and most true Church, it is very clear that these later heresies, and others which have come into being since then, are counterfeit and novel inventions.
Pope St. Clement I

Let nothing novel be introduced!
 Pope Pius XII

"Avoid the profane novelty of words," St. Paul says (I Timothy 6:20) ... For if novelty is to be avoided, antiquity is to be held tight to; and if novelty is profane, antiquity is sacred.
St. Vincent of Lerins

The ancient doctrines must be confirmed, but novel and absurd inventions must be condemned and cast aside.
St. Cyril of Alexandria

Why cast yourself over a cliff, deciding in your writings about things of which you are ignorant? Why do you not keep to what you have received from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church? You introduce novelties!
St. Eusebius of Caesaria

The devil is always discovering something novel against the truth.
Pope St. Leo the Great

To announce, therefore, to Catholic Christians anything besides that which they have received has never been lawful, is lawful nowhere, and never will be lawful; and to anathematize those who announce anything besides that which has been once received has always been necessary. This being the case, is there anyone of such audacity as to teach other than that which has already been taught in the Church, or anyone of such levity as to receive anything besides that which he has once received from the Church? St. Paul, the teacher of the Gentiles, cries aloud, and he cries out loud again and again, to all men, to all times, and to all places that, if anyone announces a new dogma, let him be anathematized!
St. Vincent of Lerins

Wherefore, by the authority of Apostolic power, We declare inventors of novel notions, which as the Apostle Paul has said are of no edification, but rather are practiced to beget most foolish questions, are to be deprived of the communion of the Church.
Pope St. Innocent I

I have neither permitted, nor shall I permit, the things which have been settled by the holy fathers to be violated by any innovation.
Pope St. Leo the Great

We do not innovate anything ... How is it that novelties are introduced which were never even thought of by our predecessors?
St. Ambrose

What, then, shall a Catholic Christian do ... if some novel contagion attempt to infect no longer a small part of the Church alone but the whole Church alike? He shall then see to it that he cleave unto antiquity, which is now utterly incapable of being seduced by any craft or novelty.
St. Vincent of Lerins

Teach nothing new, but implant in the hearts of everyone those things which the fathers of venerable memory taught with a uniform preaching ... Whence, we preach nothing except what we have received from our forefathers. In all things, therefore, both in the rule of faith in the observance of discipline, let the pattern of antiquity be observed.
Pope St. Leo the Great

Whosoever you are who introduce new doctrines, I beseech you to spare the ears of Romans! Spare that faith which was commended by the voice of an Apostle. Why should you attempt to teach us, at the end of hundreds of years, that which we never heard before? Why bring forward what Peter and Paul did not will to make known? Until this day, the world was Christian without your doctrine. Thus, I hold as an old man onto that faith wherein I was regenerated as a boy.
St. Jerome

Shake from yourselves these novel doctrines by the force of former authority, these doctrines unheard-of till now; and thus withstand new errors of whatsoever sort they may be, lest the same errors which the Church conquered long ago ... may seem to recover a voice long since squelched.
St. Capreolus of Carthage

All novelty in faith is a sure mark of heresy.
 St. Vincent of Lerins

It is impossible that I sanction any novelty against the faith.
 St. Germanus of Constantinople

Any innovation in matters of faith is extremely pernicious and utterly damnable!
St. John Eudes

New revelations regarding faith or morals ... have always been abhorred and challenged in the Church ... Hence, the Sovereign Pontiffs, the Councils, and the Fathers have been most careful to reject all novelties or new doctrines on matters of faith which differed from those already received.
St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

Let nothing new be introduced, but only what has been handed down.
Pope Benedict XV

The true religion has always been one from the beginning, and will always be the same.
St. Augustine

There being an imminent danger for the faith, prelates must be questioned, even publicly, by their subjects. -St. Thomas Aquinas

The error that you do not oppose;you support. -Pope Felix III

"In the spiritual reality of the church, neither Marcel Lefebvre, nor his bishops and priests, nor the people who frequent the SSPX chapels suffered or suffer excommunication. I believe history will record that the intent to impose such an excommunication was invalid and illicit."
-Father Malachi Martin

"There is a species of moral, legal, and social modernism which we condemn, no less decidedly than we condemn theological modernism."
- Pius XI Urbi Arcano Dei

And finally a quote to perfectly sum up this crisis:

"What Catholics once were, we are. If we are wrong, then Catholics through the ages have been wrong. We are what you once were. We believe what you once believed. We worship as you once worshipped. If we are wrong now, you were wrong then. If you were right then, we are right now". Robert Diapante

Vatican II was admittingly representative of a new “Gospel”.  Furthermore, it was equated to the FreeMasonic “cult of man”.  Catholics had better wake up and quickly.  The alarm is going off and yet too many continually hit the “snooze” button.

  1. Funny, I was reading The life and Revelations of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerick recently, and she said that people I her time were falling for this new novelty called mesmerism. I'm not sure if it's what we call hypnotism today, but she said it twisted many otherwise good people out of their faith

  2. Great ammo ! Thanks for posting this info ~ At one time I was going to a norvus ordo parish until , thank God , I came across TradCatKnight on You tube. Have learned so much and continue too. Now that I belong to a traditional parish I feel much closer to God the Father , Son and Holy Spirit! Once I read the book 33 Days of morning Glory that led me to You tube and Eric. Thanks so much ! Hoping eventually to get my sister into a traditional church. Will keep praying ! Nancy Cox / Maureen Oharra

  3. Thank you for all these great quotes Eric.
