Pope Paul, Jesus, Encyclicals discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Anything goes, you know? I'm okay, you're okay. On the contrary real love wants the good of the other. And so it makes demands. And it it upsets people very often that the real thing. So is that sentimental? We we, you know, hyper sentimentalize, a lot of religious language, and that's caused huge problems. There's something kind of spare embracing about the client is language of willing the good of the other, and that can take a softer form if you want and can take a harder form, depending on the circumstances. But the focus is always on the other as other. So like when the Lord says, you know to love your enemies, I was saying that's the great test of love because if it's your enemy is not someone's gonna pay. A you back. So if I'm kind to you that you might be kind to me. Well, that's not love right. That's an indirect egotism. I I will give you a party that you might give me a party in return. That's why in the sermon on the mound. Jesus says exactly that don't give a party for those who can repay you write a don't loan to those who can pay you back with interest. That's not the point the point is to is to be good to those that can't return the favor, that's tough stuff. Both for you and often for the other person and write that modern tolerance is kind of a vague Similac REM about I I want to ask you, some some basic kind of Catholic doctrinal questions because I think we in the general public aren't Catholic have some basic these about Catholicism that are likely wrong while it's up to so papal infallibility can you justify that? How far does the pope's infallibility go? Do I have to take everything if I'm a Catholic that he says it at face value is some of the political interpretation. What is the vicar of Christ in? What is just him saying things? Yeah. Well, it's it's. Very narrowly defined. That's the important thing within Catholic ecclesial. Gee, we say the algae of the church when the pope speaks. We say ex cathedra from the chair right in the formal manner on matters of faith morals for the sake of the entire church. He's speaking infallibly. It's happened precisely a twice in since the thing was was declared, formerly. So this is a very very rare thing we we speak about the infallibility of the ordinary Magister. Now that means the bishops in union with the pope teaching on a key manager of faith and morals in general consensus around the world, we recognize that as an infallibility of of this ordinary teaching of the church, but the pope himself, San such rare occasion. Now, the pope does deliver himself a formal teachings like encyclicals, which have to be taken with tremendous seriousness, but might a Catholic quarrel here, and there was something in cyclical sure, it's not an infallible statement, much less of certain prudential judgments of Pope Paul by make a judgment of prudential. Determination about a policy within the church or a political judgment is one obliged to accept that. No. I mean, we we prompt. The pope always in an attitude of deep respect, he's a successor repeater. He's the vicar of Christ. He's the guarantor of our unity. So the pope is always treated with enormous respect. But then fell ability is a very very narrowly defined equality. So I think it's the dangers of the pope is going to rain tomorrow therefore is gonna rain tomorrow. You know, no, that's not Catholic teaching nine. What's cafeteria chain as far as how doctrine developed over the course of centuries, where's the limitations because what we see in the orthodox Jewish community? And we're seeing now is in orthodox Judaism, we have the safety of the oral law, which is the reputation of the text of of the Torah, and this continues over centuries, and it leaves open the possibility if you're not careful of people straying from the texts so far that they are actually contravening the tax. I assume that you've had some similar problems in in Catholicism itself as well. So how how does that?.
