CWN Editor's Note: At this regular weekly public audience on October 9, Pope Francis spoke about the life of St. Paul, noting that before he conversion “Saul was a religious figure who persecutive Jesus’ early followers.” In that sense, he said, Saul was an ideologue, who accepted only his own interpretation of faith. The Pope urged the faithful to ask themselves: “Do I adore God or a dogmatic formulation?”

    From the cited article: "those who are ideologues because they desire the so-called 'purity' of the Church are attacking Christ." We also see ideologues who desire a chaotic, confused Church that preaches toleration of sin as a sign of God's will and a revolution of the impossible as a progression toward a future religious utopia that is nothing more than an old-time religious syncretism.
