When Francis talks about "Change" does it mean Nothing & Eternal Death?

The Vatican II school of the Nouvelle Theologie (New Theology) appears to be central in Francis's thinking.

This theology emphasizes becoming over being.

Francis says Cardinal Walter Kasper is "profound." The National Catholic Reporter called Kasper "the 'pope's [Francis's] theologian.'" His theology is one extreme example of this school of thought.

Kasper appears to not believe in being, but only in becoming because of his Hegelian philosophy.

The philosopher Thomas Stark said that one of Kasper's central beliefs is "historical process," that is man's historical becoming or change.

Remember that Francis's two favorite words are process and change.

In "German Idealism and Cardinal Kasper's Theological Project" for The Catholic World Report, Stark wrote:

"Kasper's...'spirit' that--Kasper himself says--is not identical to the third divine person, but is much more reminiscent of Hegel's absolute spirit, who in a historical process, synthesizing it's dialectical opposites in itself, develops into the whole."

Speaking of the less heretical theologians than Kasper and his disciple Francis who were members of Nouvelle theologie who believe in process or becoming and the dangers of this thinking, Fr. James McLucas, the former editor of the Latin Mass magazine, in a lecture said:

"It appears to emphasis the Person of Jesus, the Person of the Holy Spirit and the Person of the Father and the personal manner of each individual's sanctification as being created in the image of God."

"But here is the key. This is all true.We certainly need this emphasis. But personhood if it is not fully subjected to being and the objective nature of God, then personhood becomes often the vehicle for the substitution of man's becoming for God's being."

If one substitutes man's becoming for God's being then man is becoming nothing. Here is why:

If one believes in being, one believes a thing is a thing.

God is the fullness or total actuality of all things or being and is their creator. Our purpose or goal in life to go to God.

God is not a Kasperian "historical process" or change.

If one believes only in becoming without being, one believes nothing is becoming nothing or death.

G. K. Chesterton put it best:

"Most thinkers on realizing the apparent mutablility of being, have really forgotten their own realization of the being and believe only in the mutablility...It is only change."

"It would be more logical to call it nothing changing into nothing than to say (on this principles) that there ever was a moment when the thing was itself. St. Thomas maintains that the ordinary thing at any moment is something, but it is not everything it could be...While they describe a change which is really a change in nothing, he describes a changelessness which includes the change of everything."

"Things change because they are not complete, but their reality can only be explained as part of something that is complete. It is God." (The Dumb Ox)

If man goes to God who is Being Itseft then he receives the gifts of grace, truth and eternal life.

If men like Kasper and his disciple Francis substitutes man's becoming or change over and against God's Being or Changelessness then he gets nothing and eternal death.

The question needs to be asked since Francis's favorite word is change remembering what Chesterton said "it would be more logical to say it is nothing changing into nothing" which is what one gets if one is a disciple of Kasper:

Does Francis believe in nothing and eternal death according to G. K. Chesterton?

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of the Mary.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N. (Person, place or thing) under the protectio

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
