Anselm of Canterbury, who was a Benedictine monk, also accredited with been the founder of Scholasticism and the originator of onotolgical theory was in my humble opinion, taking the church on a wrong course.
Scolasticism is the critical thought in which was debated the existance of God - ontological arguement. My problem is God never asked us to do that. The problem in doing so is that it brings the ego into what God is about. The ego searches for perfection, while God is perfection. In debating aboutt what is the perfect answer, the processes for obtaining what is perfect get put back by the ego. This is why Anselm of Canterbury, who became the founder of the modern university which took over from the monastic university, took the church in a different path of which had been formily of the processes of God ( doing what God wants). Moses asked who God was and accepted His reply and being without alot of questions into the being of God.
The processes are more important because they build up to what is perfect. That is why I don't agree with athiests and protestants. On the one hand, athiests (who make the ego an idol) see the world, study it and come up that it is beutiful and obtain wisdom from the ego, on which they debate endlessly. Because their wisdom is from the prosesses of the ego and not from the processes of God. God as creator, created the universe, this is a process. We can argue if the world was flat or round, or how things are formed, or what they are made up of, but all these are part of the ego. It wants the perfect answer. For a christian the answer is the world and it's lustful desires are passing away and those who perform the will of God live forever. The performing is a process. Sacraments and the doctrine that supports them are the processes of God, the doing and not so much the intellectual processes which come from the ego.
This is the problem with protestants in that they have debated about what God is according to the intellectaul ego and that is why they did away with the processes (most of the sacraments) and come up with what is perfect for them by the combination of the ego with the word of God. So they have Jesus on the cross saving them without the processes of being saved ie sacrament of confession. They have debated it and come up with a perfect solution to salvation. It is not perfect because the part coming from their ego, that is in their spirituality, misses the message and the fullness of the processes, namely the workings of God in the sacraments. Having intellectualising God brings God to the ego and thus to whatever is the perfect way for the time. It is inconsistant. For, whatever is modern changes and so do the paths they have that lead to God. God is in their ego and not the living process of Him being in us where the Holy Spirit does it's works.
Would it be best if instead of debating with them, lead the life in the processes that God gave us through Himself to the apostles, to us. This is tradition, something delivered and passed on, straight from the sender to the one whom recieves.
