KIKO AND THE NCW: THE PROGENY OF EXTRAORDINARY ARROGANCE

  1. Shouldn't the teachings of the NCW, as far as they can be discovered, stand on their own? If I were to contest existentialism, would I have to contact Jean Paul Sartre from beyond the grave in order for my conclusions to be valid? As for the substantive issue here, the NCW is just once again showing itself to be another instantiation of Protestantism. They engage in exegesis that is at odds with the Magisterium. They employ a "choose your own adventure" method of reading scripture. They constantly excerpt small scraps of scripture and apply it like it has some totemic value. Ultimately, Kiko and the NCW are the progeny of extraordinary arrogance. Could they have their small, intense catechetical experience without all of the theological deviations? Yes, of course. The one has nothing to do with the other. The reason, then, for Kiko's theological deviations is a combination of arrogance, ignorance and a desire to forge rather than follow. Kiko wants to be treated like a savior and a prophet. He includes himself in the salvific history of the Church. Read the apostolic fathers, the ancient liturgies, the Didache and about St. Therese and her Little Way and Kiko is revealed as a complete fraud and cult of personality.
