God has revealed what ultimate reality is

I just wrote this in response to some issues raise in another blog about Mother Teresa's words.

Catholicism is revealed religion. God reveals what is ultimate reality, the real shape and dynamics of things, including human beings.

This revelation happens through sacred scripture and tradition, interpreted by the magisterium (he who hears you hears Me).

Jesus Christ (God) obeyed his creature father and mother. Give unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar. Honor your father and your mother.

Jesus (God) said, Renounce yourself, take up your cross daily and follow me.

Jesus (God) said, He who does not renounce everything he has cannot be my disciple.(Luke 14:33)

And all of these have reason and are logical because God is creator, conservator, and last end. We disappear back to nothingness if he does not support us. He also loves us, so he wants the best for us, to live our lives as he wants us to live, which is always the best. Also if you analyze human beings, they become happy when they give of themselves.

If God is not a person, if he does not have intelligence and will, nor a plan and a design, then it is understandable that human beings can think whatever they want, and do whatever they think is right according to their limited sights. But since God has revealed our reality, then it is correct to abide by it, to understand deeply its logic and reason, and to dance with it.
