A homily from the Gospel of Judas:
It's ok that Judas betrayed Jesus, because he was helping in God's plan for salvation.
And all my sins, past and present, are ok, because they brought me to where I am today and made me who I am, who I need to be, to fulfill God's plan for me.
And all your sins, even the ones that hurt me, are ok, because you're just fulfilling God's plan for you.
In fact, you really don't have any control over your life at all. Just do whatever, because God will manipulate whatever you do to fit His divine purposes.
Reality check: this makes no sense.
I spent years trying to prove Catholicism was WRONG. Once I started to test to see if it was RIGHT, I couldn't get it to flunk. Of course, you have to follow an argument logically - you can't jump into the middle of an issue like capital punishment and expect to find understanding. You could begin with capital punishment, but you'd have to work the logic backwards. It would take some time and patience. Or I suppose you could just read Thomas Aquinas who did much of that footwork for us.
But back to the Gospel of Judas. From a personal standpoint, everything sounds great. It's OK if I commit adultery. God must have wanted me to have a relationship with this person or He wouldn't have put him in my life. It's OK if YOU commit adultery. It's none of my business. But...is it OK if my husband commits adultery? If my marriage is the victim, could I be so happy to let God's will be done? Of course not.
So, out goes Judas' Gospel. It doesn't make sense...not in a baffling God's-mysterious-ways kind of way, but in a practical, everyday sort of way. "Treat others the way you want to be treated" - that works. "It's OK to sin because it's God's will" - that doesn't.
