Accept No Substitutes: Catholic Orthodoxy
When learning about the...Catholic Church, it's important to get orthodox information. Here, 'orthodox' means the same as 'faithful and accurate.'
Faith is serious business. Especially your own faith: this is about your life, remember?
And faith is about the truth. Really. With a capital 'T,' as in 'The Truth.' At least, that's what Jesus said: "I am the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6).
So, would you want to make a decision about your faith based on something...less than the truth....
In today's culture, it's hard to navigate through all the chaos of religious teaching--even in our Catholic Church! It is no secret that far too many are not well-formed in their faith, in part due to poor catechesis over the last several decades, but also due to the wolves in sheep's clothing (Mt. 7:15) parading around as 'Catholics' yet teaching a different gospel (Gal. 1:6-12). To be orthodox is simply to humbly accept the teachings of God through His Catholic Church. All His teachings.
Do you know what three questions to ask to find out if a person is loyal to the teachings of Christ through His Church? Do you know why the small things matter? Get the answers here.
