  • Satan’s Stratagems

    Satan has been relegated, in our modern Western society, to an impersonal and nebulous force. One who is not a severe threat. The forces of darkness are fundamental.

It is a very false Catholic assertion that we cannot know any Biblical truth without an “infallible Magisterium” (a teaching authority). See Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 2035.
