Inventing Clerical Celibacy
Tertullian was certainly drawing on sectarian and especially Montanist ideas, even if he was not yet a wholehearted convert. But even within the orthodox mainstream church, the idea that sexuality was incompatible with holiness gained popularity during the third century. Partly, this reflected a growing sense of the power of the Eucharist, and the expansion of celebrations to a daily basis. If a priest or bishop was expected to be celibate before celebrating that rite, and if it occurred in a daily or near daily basis, that de facto demanded strict, permanent, celibacy. As that practice spread, so later Christians, especially in the West, found in Tertullian’s writings an eloquent manifesto for celibacy. No later than 250, Christian monasticism originated in Egypt and Syria, and spread very quickly in both regions. Hermits and solitaries naturally rejected sexuality.

I am not arguing simplistically that “The Montanists invented priestly celibacy” (a position actually adopted by some modern opponents of mandatory clerical celibacy, in order to discredit the practice). Rather, the idea arose most vigorously on the sectarian margins of orthodoxy, but they could only have won mainstream acceptance if they reflected deeply held ideas of the time. What gave those themes special power and influence was their expression by such an influential thinker as Tertullian, who gave them entrée into Latin-speaking Christendom.

There are still good reasons for becoming a Catholic
Talk about going against the flow: Thousands of Americans choose to join the Catholic Church each year.These are men and women figuratively swimming against a very powerful tide. Overall, the church has lost more than three million congregants in the past 10 years. Every time the church adds a member, six leave.Why? If you are a Christian, there is one obvious reason: Because it’s the church founded by Jesus Christ. My denomination, the Anglican or Episcopal church, traces its roots to King Henry VIII’s antipapal pique in the 16th century. Martin Luther founded the Lutheran church, Joseph Smith begat the Mormons, and so on.But there is only one church founded by the guy whose name is on the door. Jesus’ words are right there on the dome of St. Peter’s basilica in Rome: “Upon this rock I will build my church.” The rock refers to the apostle Peter (“Petrus,” or rock), the first pope of the Roman Catholic church.In 2018, women and men come to Catholicism for reasons both profound and mundane.“Catholicism has a delineated history back to 100 A.D.,” “and it’s 2018 and it’s still the Catholic church. I feel its historical authority helps to keep it on the right path.”“The problems facing the Catholic church are problems that face any institution run by human beings,”

Who you calling the anti-Christ, Rudy?
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. But you you have been anointed by the Holy One, and you all have knowledge. I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because no lie is of the truth. Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son. (1 John 2: 18-22)
