Refuting Roman Catholicism & Ecumenism: Palamas, Aquinas & Augustine

A reply to various so-called Orthodox and Roman Catholic apologist attempts to reply to my essay. Ultimately these attempts fail because they do not understand hypostatic properties and the orthodox distinctions of will, nature, person and operation. As a result, both faux “Orthodox” and Roman Catholics congeal into a mass lump of heretical perennialism, as generic as their generic theism.

  1. I love his intro! Haven’t read the article though. Maybe tomorrow.

  2. I’ve read it. The attempts fail and miss the point, as the endless Thomist attempts always do. I tried for years to maintain my thomism and finally it failed once I really dug into the eastern triadology. As I show in the video Thomas explicitly rejects St. John of Damascus on essence – energy.

  3. Plus, ultimately, what it comes down to isn’t really thomism but what has been dogmatized.

    • Did I say he totally rejects st John? I said he rejects the essence – energy distinction, which is the whole debate. We have no “conceptual abstract” order because knowing God is direct through the nous. Away with this nonsense

  4. I have older articles that deal with the topic of the epistemic issues in Thomism but for one: none of you have the doctrine of the nous and seeing God directly-Another of many heresies.

    Have been listening to your discourse on St Gregory Palamas, Augustine and Thomas. I completely agree. You ignored, however, patristic gnoselogy, as opposed to Western epistemology. Read the Desert the Fathers (Desert Wisdom)

    I have left a comment. What do mean “your comment is awaiting moderation?

  8. Thanks for your presentation here! Very insightful. Based on your characterization at the 28:00 mark, that according to absolute divine simplicity (a la Augustine & Aquinas) there cannot be a manifestation of the divine essence in time and space, I was wondering how A & A would handle the Incarnation in this framework? I.e., doesn’t that rule out the Incarnation itself?
