  • If We Walk In The Light...studies in Darkness and light pt 1

    If we walk in the light, as He is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another and the Blood of Jesus Christ Godís son, cleanses us from all sin.? (I john 1:7)What does it mean to Ďwalk in the Lightí? We know it doesnít mean that we walk in sinless perfection, otherwise we would not be assured that the one who walks in the light is continuously cleansed from all sin by the blood of Jesus Christ. What then does the passage mean,íIf we walk in the lightÖĒ.Earlier in the same section of scripture, John tells us that...

    Jeff Schweitzer heralded the discovery of an apparent Earth-like planet as a nail in the coffin for religion in a Thursday item on Huffington Post. Schweitzer, a scientist, "rationalist," and former Clinton administration senior policy analyst contended that "with this discovery, we come ever closer to the idea that life is common in the universe," and added that religions would "all will come out and say such a discovery is completely consistent with religious teachings.

    Capitalism has a new competitor and its name is "shame." The left is determined to make capitalism morally reprehensible. Cloaked in provocative terms like "income inequality," wealth redistribution has become the popular economic philosophy in America today, but it doesn't hold a candle to capitalism. When your first grade teacher asked the class "what do you want to be when you get big?" I'm doubtful anyone raised their hand to say "ooh, ooh, a welfare recipient!" I'm also certain your classmates never pointed to posters of their teen idols to say "anyone but them!" In other words, socialism isn't natural;...

    As Obamaís term as President is slowly nearing its end, more and more of who the man is, and what he truly stands for, is beginning to seep out. For instance, President Obama released his 4th of July weekly address for 2015 with one key ingredient missing: God. Unlike his weekly addresses during the previous two years, where the President concluded his speeches with ďGod Bless You AllĒ (2014) and ďSo, God bless You All. And may God bless The United States of AmericaĒ (2013), Obama left out any mention of God in his recent address. Instead, this year, he...

But, for now, Justice Anthony Kennedy has the final word. Same-sex marriage is the law of the land, as the right of gays and lesbians to marry is right there in the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, which was ratified in 1868. We just didn't see it.

    God‚Äôs Plan will Stand ‚Äď A Word of Encouragement to the Fainthearted By: Msgr. Charles PopeAdvent is a season of waiting, waiting for God to fulfill his promises. We know that most of His promises from the Old Testament were fulfilled magnificently by Jesus. But as St. Paul reminds, we have received but the first fruits of his work in our soul (cf Rom 8:23). The created world and our physical bodies still await the full implications of what He has done. We still await a new Heaven and a new earth where the justice of God will reside...

    How can the religious community live in peace and harmony with the LGBT community? New York Times columnist Frank Bruni has the solution. Just rewrite the Bible. In his April 3rd column, ďBigotry, the Bible and the Lessons of Indiana,Ē Bruni, himself gay, recognizes that Christian beliefs are not necessarily grounded in hatred. The problem, he claims, is that, ďBeliefs ossified over centuries arenít easily shaken.Ē Bruni, for his part, wants to shake us free from our fossilized faith. According to Bruni, who evidences little or no understanding of how believers view the Scriptures (namely, as Godís inspired Word), if...

    Bombing, beheading, hijacking, mosque sermons ó these are just a few of the instances where the proclamation ďAllahu akbarĒ is shouted. But what does it really mean?The mainstream media tells us that the Islamic statement is a pledge of allegiance to the god of the Prophet Muhammad and is an admirable demonstration of faith and piety. Itís portrayed as a humble utterance of praise that is too often misused by jihadists during acts of terror. However, the real meaning behind the most controversial term of our time is much more sinister than the liberal left would have you believe.Recently,...

  • What is Marriage?

    The Narrow Path ^ | Written By Steve Gregg
    For centuries, the essential meaning of marriage was universally understood (and taken for granted) in Western civilization, and, with very few modifications, in the pagan world as well. Because a marriage was always seen as the defining core of a family, providing a context for bearing and rearing children, its purpose and nature were taken to be self-evident, and seldom was thought to require defining. Among those societies informed by Scripture, marriage was also understood to be necessarily heterosexual, monogamous and life-long. With the coming of the sexual revolution of the 1960ís, many of these assumptions began to be eroded...

Ted Cruz garnered tremendous applause, saying, ďI believe God isnít done with America yet.Ē I think heís right.

    Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Despite more than nine out of 10 Americans agreeing Jesus was a historical figure, what they believe about Him diverges widely, according to a newly released survey from the Barna Research Group, a nonprofit organization that has been analyzing cultural trends related to religious belief since 1984. The survey of more than 4,000 U.S. adults online and by phone suggests Americans are conflicted about the central figure of...
