Turretin Fan and His Erroneous Remarks About The Our Lady of Guadalupe Image
29. The Angel has the face of an adult, but the forehead of a child. This is for us to understand that only those who are like little children will enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
Turretin Fan has made a gross error in his assessment of the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. He pokes fun at the image and then remarks that Jesus is stuck at the bottom of the image. His exact written words were, "(source - as you'll see in the clearer image there, Jesus isn't completely missing, he's just hiding down at the bottom of the picture - direct link to picture). I guess as usual, Turretin did no research on the subject before making a fool of himself once again. Anyone who has studied the image knows that the depiction at the bottom of the image is an angel, and not Jesus as Turretin has falsely stated. You can read the entire bumbling, nonsensical post here.
The "angel" at the bottom of the image was seen by the Indians as an "intermediary god" carrying in a new era, the beginning of a new civilization. One era was at an end -- had died -- and a new one was beginning, was being born.
Here are some sources that prove my point. When it comes to Catholicism, Turretin Fan knows little, and cannot be trusted to critique anything pertaining to the subject. Here is just one more example. When someone cannot even get simple facts like this right, they surely cannot be trusted to argue the more complex theological issues with any accuracy. Way to go Turretin Fan! I guess as long as Turretin Fan thinks it is Jesus at the bottom, then that is all that matters. We all do know that Turretin Fan has a long history of telling Catholics what they really believe and what the Catholic Church really teaches! I guess all the Catholics are wrong, and he is right.
What a surprise! Turretin Fan has finally admitted that he was in error on this post. He updated his blogpost soon after I posted mine.
