Mark 11:27-33 Modern 2022 Translation
And they come again to the big cities. And when he was walking in the streets, there came to him the theologians, professors and those without proper instruction in the faith.
And they said to him: By what authority do you teach about what happens in people’s bedrooms? and who hath given thee this authority?
And Jesus answering, said to them: I will also ask you one work, and answer you me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things.
Why do you want to change the Church’s teaching on birth control and homosexuality? The real reason in your heart.
But they thought with themselves, saying: If we say, to be pastoral and accompanying, he will say then why did the saints not also do that.
If we say what the real reason in our hearts is, he will expose our sinful hearts. For all know that what he want to do is shameful.
And they answering, said to Jesus: A whole bunch of stuff on interpretation of different things using bad analogies and much material on nothing at all important. And Jesus answering, saith to them: Neither do I tell you by what authority I do these things.
