The Pope Accidently Visits Beggars All, Reformation and Apologetics

The pope was doing some research on Alister McGrath and accidentally ended up here. Sensing imminent danger,  and almost out-clicking to aomin.org, the computer was immediately shut down by attending prelates and checked for Protestant viruses. An inside source at the Vatican wishing to remain anonymous stated, "We've told Pope Francis a number of times to make sure 'safe search' is on, and to use the 'go anonymous' feature. We've told him it isn't all 'Catholic Answers' out in cyberspace, but he always says to lay off, or he'll say something else in public to cause Rome's defenders to exceed their bandwidth to explain it."

Because of the accidental visit, a number of Protestant viruses have been removed from the Vatican network: TriablogueTrojan, Dr.Oakleystheonomicbeard.exe, and the most deadly of all, the SnowCoveredDungDinger.

At least he had the right browser (Firefox) but a more vulnerable, fallible OS (XP).

No wonder those Prot viruses gained entry. Removing penance and full of grace...

But the page the Vatican accessed was certainly an informative one.

the concept of merit that means "to be worthy of something" is a Latin meaning, not a Greek meaning. This concept was linked to the word iustitia previous to Augustine

You have a mole in the Vatican. I'm impressed.

What was the purpose of his visit?

Vincent VAN DER WEERDEN said...

I wonder what the purpose of the visit was? It seems the Pope was willing to listen to the other side by telling his prelates to lay off. They are the ones that edit and monitor his internet search. He even seemed to threaten them if they interfered with whatever he was researching, by telling them he will make a really embarrassing statement.

Vincent VAN DER WEERDEN said...

Why was the Pope researching Alister McGrath? Was he trying to refute Protestant doctrine via McGrath or was he planning a sort of ecumenical move using McGrath as a vehicle or means.

It appears that they've even got to keep the pope's eyes from stumbling across the truth. He might accidentally see a truth and realize his teaching is wrong. Whoa!

Paul Hoffer said...

No doubt a student at one of the colleges there doing research. Hopefully, they follow your advice about using secondary Protestant sources...

I've had hits from the Vatican before. I don't always scroll through the hits.

If it makes any difference, I do use the papal website from time to time.

You mean... it really wasn't the pope? Wow. Paul Hoffer: The Official Beggars all Killjoy.

James, I accept the position.. How much does it pay?

Pay? Think of all the years out of purgatory you'll acquire.(•‿•)

Regardless of their fallibilities, in my view, this wasn't a fallible hit. It could be said a Pope of Rome finally did an infallible thing coming to Beggars All! :)

Paul Hoffer said...

Even if I am the last one there and get to turn the lights out in Purgatory after everyone else left, I still am going to heaven. Thank you for your kind words!

Vincent VAN DER WEERDEN said...

James do you have a mole in the Vatican? I am still curious on why the Pope was researching McGrath.

Mr. Hoffer is probably onto something. I think the Pope is too busy to be reading up on such trivial topics like Iustitia Dei- especially with global warming and the environment to worry about.
