  • Where Are You from? A Reflection on Recent Tensions over Immigration, Race, and Ethnicity

    Where Are You from? A Reflection on Recent Tensions over Immigration, Race, and Ethnicity Msgr. Charles Pope • January 14, 2018 • A priest friend of mine who immigrated to this country from Jordan back in the 1970s is often asked, “Where are you from?” He humorously answers, “I am from my mother’s womb.”True enough! There is an even more fundamental answer, rooted in Scripture, which speaks to the origin of every human person: You are from the loving will and heart of God. Before you were ever formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you and thought about...

    Hallie Cassadys family eats at Chick-fil-A in Bowling Green, Kentucky at least once a week. But last weeks visit to their favorite restaurant wasnt like the others. Chowing down with her loved ones, the 13 year old witnessed a gesture of kindness that will alter her perspective forever. That day Hallie was one of many customers who noticed an old man in need of some help. "His shoes were being held together with duct tape," the teenager recalled to WBKO. Another diner noticed the man too, and Hallie says she watched as he looked in him the eye, took off...

    Meaning of 'gospel' As first books of the New Testament hadn’t been written, how did apostles ‘believe in the gospel’? Msgr. Charles Pope 11/15/2017 Question: In Mark 1:15, Jesus is calling for all to “Repent, and believe in the gospel.” Clearly, the Gospels were not yet written when Jesus was saying this. What exactly was he talking about?— Paul VanHoudt, Erie, Colorado Answer: Your question is rooted in the tendency we have to equate the word “gospel” with a written text — more specifically, four written texts in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. However, the “Gospel” should be...

    The Evangelical Lutheran Church of American was founded in 1988 with 5,288,230 members.By 2016, less than twenty years later, the ELCA had shrunk to 3,563,842 members. With that kind of "growth," the ELCA has less thanforty years before the final member throws her hands up and quits. Christ the King Lutheran Church in Cary, N.C., believes that they've found the answer to stopping the mass exodus of tithing members. They've stopped preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and have embraced progressive theology and social justice.Writing for Religion News Service, Yonat Shimron tells the story of Christ the King Lutheran...

    The state of Texas might be battered and bruised, but its spirit is not broken. Proof of this is a viral video showing a Texas woman’s amazing gospel performance at a Harvey shelter in Conroe. FOX News reports: A Texas woman’s gospel performance inside a shelter for Tropical Storm Harvey evacuees has gone viral after the impromptu performance lifted the spirits of people stranded away from home. Although it is difficult to understand the full extent of damage from the monster storm until flood waters fully recede, at least 10,000 people have been rescued, more than 30,000 are in shelters and 20...

    Recently I wrote about the hermeneutical principle of trusting what the Bible plainly says - in other words, a literal interpretation of Scripture and letting Scripture interpret Scripture. It is my belief that if Christians adhered to this principle there would be few if any divisions in the Church. Approaching Scripture with a certain humility is also important. We should tremble at God's Word, not act as though we are the masters of it. Don't assume you've figured it all out because none of us have. The strongest evidence I see demonstrating that someone knows the Scriptures inside and...

    Nadab and Abihu were the eldest sons of Aaron and along with their father were the first priests to serve in the Tabernacle. Their story is a terrifying warning to us about God's unbending requirements. In Leviticus 10 we learn that they brought a "strange fire" before the LORD - in other words, a fire not authorized by God. As a consequence they were immediately consumed and killed by fire. In like manner, God has authorized only one acceptable sacrifice for us to bring before Him. God's Word tells us that no one is righteous in His sight (Psalm...

    What is the Gospel? Does the Bible define it? Is it an important doctrine? Writing to the Corinthian church, the Apostle Paul calls the Gospel "of first importance". In other words, the Gospel is the foremost and foundational doctrine of the entire Christian faith. Without it Christianity is just an empty shell - a house of cards that will soon collapse in on itself. The word "Gospel" is regularly thrown around without definition as if everyone who hears the word instantly recognizes its meaning. To most it's indecipherable Christianese. The Church has largely failed to remind itself and others of...

    Prince, priest and missionary, Demetrius Gallitzin is known as the "Apostle of the Alleghenies." Born at The Hague, Holland in 1770, Demetrius Gallitzin was raised in one of the most illustrious families of Russia. His father, Prince Demetrius Gallitzin, was the Russian ambassador to Holland, having previously been the ambassador in France for 14 years. It was in France that his father became an intimate acquaintance of leading rationalists Diderot, Voltaire, and d’Alembert.While Gallitzin’s father was a nominally practicing Russian Orthodox, his mother had been baptized in the Roman Catholic Church and was originally from Prussia. However, they barely educated their son...

    I have a new book out The True Jesus, which is my third Christian-themed book and I want to tell you a little bit about it. In my previous books, I related that I didnt always embrace the Bible and that I came to accept Jesus Christ later than some people do after studying the evidence for Christianitys truth claims. Contrary to a common misconception, there is an abundance of evidence that undergirds the Christian faith, and I examined much of that in my previous books. This book is different in that it allows the Gospels to...

    While researching the astronomical alignment next September that may be the sign John saw in Revelation 12, it occurred to me to revisit the possible dates surrounding Christ's first advent and see if there were any other "signs in the sky" around that time. I've already written extensively on possible dates for Jesus' birth (primarily based on Craig Chester and Rick Larson's research and The Bethlehem Star documentary), so I won't touch on that here, suffice to say that the argument goes Jesus was conceived on the Feast of Trumpets in 3 BC, was born in June of 2 BC,...

    In this Podcast, my special guest and I will discuss The Things that Matter Most. As we are born into this world, and live out our lives, we discover the world through our senses which in turn establishes our habits, influences our mindsets, and forms our routines (which is what we consider to be personal reality). And yet, if we happen to hear about a dynamic concept called the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are confronted with a challenge to everything we believe. Why is that? Who holds the capital on truth? And why is trust a vital component in...

    Donald Trump and his team sharpened the divide with the Obama administration on whether Russia executed the cyber-attacks on the White House race and suggested this team might have the better intelligence. Rushing to judgement on stuff like this is not in anybodys best interest, incoming WH Communication Director Sean Spicer said....Spicer argued that President-elect Trump is not disputing statements from U.S. intelligence officers, just waiting for a final report due later this week that could offer more conclusive evidence... Several U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russia was behind the hacking ... President Obama last week punished Russia for the...

    "But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit," - Titus 3:4-5 The Gospel is the ultimate rags-to-riches story. We were pitiful, poor, blind, and naked, deserving death because of our sins, and unable to help ourselves. We felt unloved and in turn were unloving. This bleak existence of dust-to-dust was all there was. And then Jesus came. He revealed to us a loving Daddy in heaven who...

    A real good man who was on my staff in Iraq, an Iraqi national, left the country recently. He received repeated threats from local Al Qaeda and later ISIS for helping the US Army during OIF. There was always something special about this guy and we shared a bond of friendship that still endures. I believe the Lord put him on my heart for prayer and salvation. He made it to Sweden about eight months ago and is awaiting a ruling for asylum as a refugee. My prayers continued. Today I received what I thought was the answer to that...
