For about the last year or so, I’ve been praying and thinking about starting a YouTube channel. The reason for this is because there are some things I would like to talk about, where blog posts wouldn’t make the most sense. For example, I’ve wanted to do analysis on certain music, this includes popular music and even Gregorian Chant.
The other reason, is because sometimes, well, I can just go on and on when I talk as opposed to writing. Sometimes when I sit down at the computer to write, I just can’t think, like, at all. It’s annoying, its irritating, but you know, that’s okay, it happens.
One idea for a series I was thinking of putting together would be called “Heresy!” in which I would take an opinion that is so overly used in our culture that is completely wrong and heretical in nature. It would make for a fun video series, but, I’m just going to have to do this series on the blogosphere, which is fine.
So, what is heresy? As defined in the Concise Catholic Dictionary of 1943 (CCD): “Originally a division among Christians; the false doctrine or false interpretation of true doctrine; formal heresy is a grievous sin; it is a rebellion against God.”
Simple right? Anything that is contrary to the Magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church is heresy. The Church holds the Truth and anything that is contrary to that Truth is heresy.
Its actually good to call out heresy when you see it, as normally you would want to be called out on a heresy that you subscribe to. This way, you can learn the true doctrinal teaching and apply it to your life. So, go ahead and call out heresy when you see it!
