Pope Pius XII dealt with this error, already widely expressed during his reign: The desire to restore everything indiscriminately to its ancient condition is neither wise nor praiseworthy. It would be wrong, for example, to want the altar restored to its ancient form of a table, to want black eliminated from the liturgical colors, and pictures and statues excluded from our churches; to require crucifixes that do not represent the bitter sufferings of the divine Redeemer.37 Analogically, to those who argue that the presence of the charismata in the early Church proves their suitability (or even necessity) today, Catholics can reply that one does not follow from the other Miracles: Proof of God's Love.

Based on the behavior of the rich young ruler, who chose NOT to follow Jesus Christ but turned aside, we can presume that this fellow was not aware of Jesus Christ being deity, but rather considered Him to be a great prophet or teacher. Jesus Christ, of course, knew this. There are various examples in scripture of Jesus Christ being willing to suffer such people for a time and meet them where they were, but driving them off when He became weary of them, such as His telling the throng �you must eat my flesh and drink my blood to have eternal life�, and they replied that the teaching was too hard and all but a few left, and even those few He asked �Will ye go also?� So when Jesus Christ told this man not to call Him good but that there was none good but God, he was speaking to a JEW that did not know HIM as God but only knew of the FATHER, the Father in Heaven whom Christ said that A) He came from, B) whose Will He was doing, C) was His own Father, D) that He would return to read Pentecostalism: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions) online.
