Fr. Campbell, "For the Love of Truth"

For the Love of Truth (2Thess.10)

Fr. Campbell 

 Those who love the truth love the One who IS Truth, Jesus Christ. Those who love Jesus Christ love the Church He founded, the Holy Catholic Church. The Church, the Bride of Christ, loves the Bridegroom, and is in obedience to Him in all things. The Church changes nothing of what she has received from the Lord. At the same time, the Church reads the “signs of the times” spoken of by Our Lord that will be wars and rumors of wars, and a great persecution of His followers. And these are the signs that will precede His coming:

“There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations bewildered by the roaring of sea and waves; men fainting for fear and for expectation of the things that coming on the world; for the powers of heaven will be shaken” (Lk.21:25,26).

We must love the truth. Because she is the guardian of truth, the Church understands the true meaning of present events. She sees that millions of Catholics have fallen away from the true faith, because they no longer believe what the Catholic Church has always taught. She sees that the leaders of the novus ordo church have fallen from grace, and are like the blind leading the blind, so that both they and those who follow them are heading straight for the pit of Hell. She sees that modern governments have no validity or authority, because they contradict the Laws of God and permit perversions of the worst kind to be practiced openly. They even promote such perversions, and require everyone to honor those who practice them. No wonder that the earth is shaking and wobbling on its axis!

The True Church sees that Francis Bergoglio betrays the truth by placing God’s revealed Word on the same level as the false religions, practicing an ecumenism that betrays Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.  

He dares to joke blasphemously about the Holy Trinity: “Inside the Holy Trinity they’re all arguing behind closed doors, but on outside they give the picture of unity” (Austin Iverleigh, Crux, Mar. 25, 2017, as quoted in Novus Ordo Watch).

Only a few days later came these horribly blasphemous words about Our Lord Jesus Christ, as quoted in the Vatican newspaper, Osservatore Romano: “the memory of him who made himself sin, who has made himself the devil, the serpent, for us…”

St. Paul predicted that before the end there would be a great apostasy, a great falling away from the true faith:

“Let no one deceive you, for the day of the Lord will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and is exalted above all that is called God, or that is worshipped, so that he sits in the temple of God and gives himself out as if he were God” (2Thess.2:3,4).

St. Paul also reveals the reason for the apostasy:

“And his coming is according to the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, and with all wicked deception to those who are perishing. For they have not received the love of truth that they might be saved. Therefore God sends them a misleading influence that they may believe falsehood, that all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have preferred wickedness” (2Thess.2:9-12).

So now we know the real reason for the great apostasy, the great falling away from the faith in these times. They have not received “the love of truth” because “they have preferred wickedness”! They do not love the truth! This should give us a good scare, and set us all to thinking seriously about where we stand with regard to the truth. God has revealed the Truth to us through His Divine Son, Jesus Christ. Are we so ungrateful as to prefer wickedness to God’s revealed truth? Are we so much in love with this world that we have given up the love of truth?

Those who love the truth must love Jesus Christ, who is “the Way, and the Truth, and the Life” (Jn.14:6). Those who do not love Jesus Christ will find themselves deceived by the devil, wandering in the swamp of sin and corruption that characterizes these times. It is impossible to drift away from the Truth and find your way to Heaven at the same time. The path of this world leads only to destruction, as Our Lord explains:

“Enter by the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who enter that way. How narrow the gate and close the way that leads to life! And few there are who find it” (Mt.7:13,14).  

We live in a world full of liars, since there is no love of truth. All liars will end up in “the pool of fire”, Christ the King himself declared:  

“But as for the cowardly and unbelieving, and abominable and murderers, and fornicators and sorcerers, and idolaters and all liars, their portion shall be in the pool that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death” (Apoc.21:8).

But Our Lord will say one day to those who love the truth and have believed in Him:

“Behold the dwelling of God with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. And death shall be no more; neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away” (Apoc.21:3,4).

“I am the light of the world,” says the Lord. “He who follows me does not walk in the darkness, but will have the light of life” (Jn.8:12).
