A Question for a Roman Catholic Theologian

You know what’s absent from any book of the Bible outside of the Gospels? Mary. If Mary is intended to be such a central part of the Christian life, if she intercedes for us and works for us and cares for us and we’re supposed to pray to her, why is her name not anywhere... Continue Reading →

1 Corinthians 5

It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has his father’s wife. You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst. For... Continue Reading →

This Great Revolution

The greatest revolution in history is the revolt of the Kingdom of Jesus against the ruler of this dark air, against the principalities of self-love and pride and idolatry and greed that have set themselves up as "kings" in this world.   The greatest revolt of all time is the one eternal light is mounting...

Re:  Wonder Woman

A culture that does not even have a coherent answer to what a woman is is not fit to give anyone a feminine icon.   Me:  "What is a woman?" America:  "A strong, independent human." Me:  "So can he be a woman?  Steve over there?" America:  "If that's what he identifies as." Me:  "So what... Continue Reading →

A Healthy Christian

   2 observations: 1) I almost never meet a healthy Christian who isn't plugged in to a local church. 2) Almost every time I meet someone who claims Christ but is not involved in any local church there turns out to be some fairly noteworthy sin or lack of spiritual growth going on in the person's life.  ...

Undoing Babel

   I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body... Continue Reading →
