I always say that. Why? Because he lies.
So if you hear someone talk about what the Devil told them about rectal emissions - ignore it.
The Devil lies.
I wrote about it here, and repeat it today.
I came across a commentary on the Gospel for today, offering an explanation as to why Jesus commanded the demons he drove out, not to speak.
"The reason why Jesus forbade the devils to speak was to teach us not to believe them, even if they say true. For if once they find persons to believe them, they mingle truth with falsehood." - Theopylact of Ohrid
It is the same with 'New Age' Catholic spiritual guides and heretics. They collect what seems good to them from other cultures and religious systems and concoct a syncretic-cocktail of error, with a shot of truth. Of course, though it may be dangerous to the faith, one may read or study and listen to anyone. When one moves beyond Jesus and the Church - then one knows they have left the narrow way that leads to life.
"The male penis is not a weapon or a mere tool, but it is a means of making contact,
literally "reaching out" for the other, not to hurt or invade,
but to pleasure and delight – mutually! . . .
Not just me, and not just the other, but both simultaneously.
Is that not an ideal metaphor for what all human relationships should be?
And maybe even what morality should be." - Richard Rohr
