From the website, this seems innocent enough, correct:
We are created in the image of God because we are able to relate freely to others and form community with them, just as the three Divine Persons relate to each other and live in a loving community.
Translation: Don't judge others ie, homosexuals and disadents. We all sin. We should accept them AND their sin - they don't believe in loving the sinner AND hating the sin.
How do I know that? I've read enough of the stuff from those who put this crap together. Homosexuality is to be accepted according to them. This also covers feminists who want to be priests and priests who want to marry.
Just think about what they call themselves: Renew. They want a renewal. Who is "they"? Dissadents, some of whom have been excommunicated for promoting homosexuality, feminism, etc. This is what their renewal is about.
Again, sorry if I sound like a know it all, but I have researched this and have experienced it in our old parish.
To start - I'm rock-solid in my Catholic faith. Let's be clear, I am NOT for women priests, married priests, and other such nonsense. In other words, I'm just a concerned messenger and not a dissident.
I went to the website and looked at the profiles of the folks in charge of RENEW. I also searched the web for evidence that they are not in line with Church teaching and I tell ya, I cannot find any concrete examples of anything wrong. It might be out there, I just cannot find it.
I ask for the simple reason that we need to be careful and not bear false witness (if willfully, a serious sin).
Do you have any links? We have started the Why Catholic program at our parish. Our priest, is very orthodox (for example, lots of homilies about the serious sins of abc, abortion, homosexuality, and etc.) He doesn't mince words and tells it like it is. I would like some strong evidence that the "Why Catholic" program is heretical so I can let him know.
Thanks in advance!
