With the added info/quotes from Bob, then yes, I agree with you, Matthew. The many Bobs of this world have drunk the koolaid, they are tired of fighting new-Rome, they are tired of fighting for Tradition and yearn for “normalcy” and “peace” in the Faith.
I’m sure the early Christians were tired of being scared of persecutions constantly, but instead of giving up to lukewarmness, their fears, worries and exhaustion drove them to prayer and a deeper attachment to God, who provided them with strength to carry on through the tribulations of the day. Sadly, most of us fail to learn this lesson too. But today is a new day and we can start again. Yet the Bobs of this world have, seemingly, given up. Let’s pray they come to their senses and aren’t lost due to spiritual sloth. For we all must pray for the grace of perseverance and patience, lest our human nature get overwhelmed.
