Lamentabili sane

One of the greatest treasures of the Church is the 19 centuries of teaching that is available to us. You don't have to dig to deep to realize why there is so much confusion these days.

Among the sixty-five errors of the modernists condemned by Pope St. Pius X (Lamentabili sane) July 3, 1907:


“53.
The organic institution of the Church is not immutable. Like human society, Christian society is subject to perpetual evolution.
“54. Dogmas, Sacraments, and hierarchy, both their notion and reality, are only interpretations and evolutions of the Christian intelligence which have increased and perfected by an external series of additions the little germ latent in the Gospel.

“58. Truth is no more immutable than man himself, since it evolved with him, in him, and through him.

“59. Christ did not teach a determined body of doctrine applicable to all times and all men, but rather inaugurated a religious movement adapted or to be adapted to different times and places.

“64. Scientific progress demands that the concepts of Christian doctrine concerning God, creation, revelation, the Person of the Incarnate Word, and Redemption be readjusted.”

By holding any of these five propositions, one is automatically excluded from the Catholic Church.
