I thought that there would be a stronger condemnation for Father Doyle. I'm ashamed that many of Jefferson City's "Christians" find it acceptable to pick-and-choose morality from the Scriptures, instead of accurately representing the Will of God and condemning sexual immorality.
Why would law enforcement agencies investigate immorality based on the will of God? Many areas of God's will doesn't overlap with governmental procedures - separation of Church and State, etc. The issue here is how Father Doyle will stand in God's court. Why would authorities be involved here if it was just "standard immoral images?" Doesn't it make you suspicious that the police would became entangled in this, if it was just normal sexually explicit images? You are closing your eyes to the work of the Devil, and letting him move like a lion through your flock. Congratulations.
My point is, God's will is clearly stated in the Bible. He gives a list of "rules" in the OT, which are supposed to guide Christians on how to live. How can you disregard these? If you arbitrarily choose various Bible verses to support your moral structure, that is not being a true Christian.
The Bible is the perfect, flawless Word of God. To doubt the Bible is to doubt Christ himself. Such a comment ... you should be ashamed! You insult the Church and God above.
It is against God's will to wear clothes of mixed fibers. Do you think that Father Doyle has ever worn polyester shirts?
Do not wear clothes of wool and linen woven together. - Deut 22:11
I think that the Bible itself tells best what will happen to this immoral man.
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." - 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
God knows what his intentions were, and the repercussions for his actions will be felt in the afterlife.
