The Finger of God: A Lesson on the Catechesim of the Catholic Church

Who ever said the Bishops don't have a sense of humor have not read the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I was reading it the other night and ran across the section on the holy Spirit and the "Finger of God." All I could do was laugh. I might be going to hell for this picture, but it is what it says in the Catechism, and it is what popped into my head the second after I read it. Maybe getting the finger isn't as bad as we perceive. Maybe the Bishops should be more careful in the choosing of their words.

The CCC states, (Section 700) that "It is by the finger of God that [Jesus] cast out demons." If God's law was written on tablets of stone "by the finger of God," then the "letter from Christ" entrusted to the care of the apostles, is written "with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of human hearts." The hymn Veni Creator Spiritus invokes the Holy Spirit as the "finger of the Father's right hand."

When the "finger of God" comes out of the Most Blessed Holster, chances are somebody's gonna die.

Smited, that is. Lake of fire. Gnashing of teeth.

this picture makes me so sad, thats completely ridiculous, this is what happens when people take things out of context, just like many christian denominations take words from the bible out of context and dont see the real truth in it, they form it to fit what goes through thier head as they read...
