You Must Follow Your Conscience

Kaufman does not say that we (Catholics, humans, etc.) can simplt disregard papal teachings. What he stresses is that one must follow his or her conscience. This teaching comes straight out of Vatican II. It does not mean that we can do what we feel like, rather, we must take time to inform our consciences through study and prayer. If a person finds that her conscience tells her that, for example, the not-infallible papal teaching on birth control is not morally correct, then she *must* -- not should, not can, but *must* -- follow her conscience. Straight out of Vatican II -- I'm not making this up.

One hears so little about conscience in the Church. God gave us minds and consciences so that we can use them. (Hopefully, we use them wisely, but that's beyond the scope of this review.) Kaufman's book stresses conscience, and also informs the reader of the history behind some controversial Church decisions, including papal infallibilty.

I found this book to be very interesting and helpful in my spiritual journey.

I AM A GOOD CATHOLIC

Kaufmann does a tremendous job of enlightening the history behind the decisions and "other information" all catholics should have. He compels us to examine the basis behind the dogmas, doctrines and encyclicals. A must have for any catholic living with todays social and moral struggles. I can disagree and still be a good catholic.......I was ready to leave the church til I read this book!
