New post Müller: A Camera Couldn't've Captured the Resurrection
Müller wrote:
Quote:
Technical equipment or also animals lack the possibility, in contrast to human reason, of a transcendental experience [Erfahrung also means 'practical' or 'empirical knowledge.], and hence of being spoken by the Word of God in the mediation of sensory phenomena and tangible signs. (p. 300)
Müller's position agrees with the sed contra of St. Thomas's Summa article "Whether a glorified body will be necessarily seen by a non-glorified body?:"
Quote:
Our body will be glorified in being made like to the body of Christ after the resurrection. Now after the resurrection Christ's body was not necessarily seen; in fact it vanished from the sight of the disciples at Emmaus (Luke 24:31). Therefore neither will the glorified body be necessarily seen. Further, there the body will be in complete obedience to the will. Therefore as the soul lists the body will be visible or invisible.
St. Thomas counters this erroneous understanding in the body of the article:
Quote:
I answer that, A visible object is seen, inasmuch as it acts on the sight. Now there is no change in a thing through its acting or not acting on an external object. Wherefore a glorified body may be seen or not seen without any property pertaining to its perfection being changed. Consequently it will be in the power of a glorified soul for its body to be seen or not seen, even as any other action of the body will be in the soul's power; else the glorified body would not be a perfectly obedient instrument of its principal agent.
Also, Modernists hold
Quote:
that the object of [...] [faith] [(the First Truth, according to St. Thomas)] is quite extraneous to and separate from the object of [...] [science]. For faith [according to Modernists] occupies itself solely with something which science declares to be unknowable for it. [...] [They think] science is to be entirely independent of faith, while on the other hand, and notwithstanding that they are supposed to be strangers to each other, faith is made subject to science. (Pascendi §16-§17).

I agree with your analysis of Muller's heresy, Alan, but not the comment that Muller agrees with what St. Thomas says in the sed contra. St. Thomas is answering whether the body will necessarily be seen. He explains that being seen is an "act" of the "seen" body and therefore in the state in which the body is completely under the control of the will, the will can determine whether the body acts on others' sight or not. Muller is asserting that the intrinsic nature of the glorified body of Our Lord was invisible, and it took some special capacity in the one who saw it to perceive it. So for St. Thomas the object acts; for Muller the subject acts. These views are directly opposed.
