    This is a prayer request for my spouse. She suffers from chronic pancreatitis for 12 years now. She has had surgery due to pseudocysts and was in a coma for 18 days due to acute pancreatitis in 2011. She has Barrett’s esophagus and IBS. She’s been experiencing several concerning complications and symptoms and tomorrow goes in for a colonoscopy and endoscopy. Please pray for a good outcome as she is at a heightened risk for pancreatic cancer, colon cancer and esophageal cancer. She is scared and has asked for and will be ever grateful for your prayers.

    Mary, you are great because of your relationship with your Son and fidelity to the will of God. May I seek no other greatness. If we encountered the mother of our Lord in the street as a young woman of Nazareth, would we recognize her greatness? She who was set apart by God (made holy) for the accomplishment of His will wasn’t accompanied by retinues nor carried on litters. We would simply see a young mother going about her daily duties in service to her family—shopping in the market, collecting water, washing garments, et al. Just as our Lord was...

    The finale of the Disney+ series ‘The Santa Clauses’ was released recently, and Tim Allen said that he is pleased with the way it turned out, specifically noting the way Christmas was honored, despite saying that the format of a streaming series took some time to get used to. “We honor the Christian tradition without heralding it. It’s not — it is what it is. It’s a Christian holiday. So, we don’t belabor it, but we don’t ignore it,” said Allen. “I love the way we deal with it,” added the actor...

    Ancient Faith Ministries ^ | December 19, 2022 | Fr. Stephen Freeman
    The soldiers were scattered across Europe with the loneliness of war. The world was caught up in a total struggle. Women had gone to the factories; children were collecting scrap metal. The “war effort” was universal. In many places, food was rationed. The madhouse of consumption belonged only to the war; everything else could wait. And there was Christmas. Hollywood and Tin Pan Alley were part of the effort as well, cranking out songs that have never gone away. The mood was one of deep sentimentality and hope. “I’ll be home for Christmas,” the radios played, and soldiers wept. Being...

    The Personal Rosary ^ | 11/20/22 | Patrick Yanke
    On the cross, You welcomed the thief in his contrition. In dying, You destroyed our death. May I never despair of Your mercy. Christ on the cross is an image of infinite love where infinity Himself died for love of us (Rom 5:8). God chose to send His only begotten son, the living image of His invisible self (Col 1:15), to die as a sacrificial offering in atonement for the sins of men (Is 53:10). No one took His life. He laid it down. He laid it down willingly. He laid it down for love (1 John 3:16).As the image...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said on Tuesday that some people “equate Donald Trump with the person of Jesus Christ” in their hearts. “To them, if you even come against this amazing man, Donald Trump, which obviously quite flawed, you are coming out against Jesus, against their Christian values,” he told MSNBC’s Alex Wagner. “And when you go after their religion, that violates the depth of who they are.” Kinzinger made the remark in response to a question Wagner asked him about criticism he has received from his own family members in relation to opposing former President Trump.

    I first wrote about the topic of "Dark Matter" back in 2009, but it was scrubbed from the files of the Chico Enterprise Record Newspaper I wrote for and lost to history, after I was unceremoniously let me go. Well, I just found it in a file I was going through which someone sent me a few years ago. I lost the email address of the person, since I changed internet companies, even at that the person who sent not to me preferred to remain anonymous. Anyway, I updated this article with some new information and this is what I...
  • 'Christ, they're going after Mickey Mouse': Biden criticizes 'ugly' Republicans for going to war with Disney, says the 'far right has taken over the party' and insists Democrats can GAIN two seats in the Senate in November

    President Joe Biden criticized 'ugly' Republicans for targeting Disney and said the GOP has been taken over by the 'far right' in his speeches at two Democratic fundraisers on the West Coast on Thursday. 'This is not your father's Republican Party,' Biden said Thursday afternoon at a high-dollar fundraiser at the Portland Yacht Club, co-hosted by The New Republic's owner and editor Win McCormack and his political consultant wife, Carol Butler. 'This is the MAGA party.' The president said the Republican Party is 'not even conservative in the traditional sense of conservatism' and took aim at Florida Governor Ron DeSantis'...

    The sons of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were not spared from death because of any merit or worthiness or innocence of their own, but for the sake of the Lamb that was sacrificed in their stead. The blood of that Lamb covered them from death, it shielded them from the Angel of Death. And the flesh of that Lamb fed them for the journey out of bondage into freedom. All of this on account of divine and holy Love, the grace and mercy of the Lord their God. And that is already to speak of Christ Jesus. It’s all about...

    A painting of Christ by Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli sold for $45.4 million at auction Thursday, some $5 million more than expected, Sotheby's announced. The portrait of a resurrected Christ, The Man of Sorrows, was the marquee item in the auction house's New York Old Master paintings sale. It fetched the highest price for a Renaissance painting in the past five years. "As the first major sale of 2022, today's auction result is a resounding vote of confidence for the international art market and the market for Old Masters," said Christopher Apostle, head of Sotheby's Old Masters Painting Department....
  • "The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple" (Sermon for the First Sunday after Christmas, on Luke 2:22-40)

    “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple” (Luke 2:22-40) Yesterday was Christmas, and now we’re into the days after Christmas. For us, these days mean eating leftovers, returning gifts that don’t fit, and taking down the decorations. But what about for Jesus? What did the days after his birth mean for him? Our text is one the few places we have an account of what happened during that time. It’s the story of what happened forty days after his birth, when “The Firstborn Son Is Presented in the Temple.” Actually, the first event after Christmas we have is found...

    Oklahoma Baptist Bulletin ^ | 8/20/2021 | James Biesiadecki
    In a Mormon(LDS) blog interview,1 Jenkins defended not only the Mormon owned Vid-Angel distribution and the filming of “The Chosen” in Utah on an LDS set, but he also defended the idea that Mormons follow the “same Christ” and that there is no significant difference between Mormons and Evangelicals. He further admitted that many LDS people are working on the project and influencing his thinking. Jenkins’ defense against criticism was quite telling. Hear it in his own words: “So even if you are listening to this right now as an evangelical and are horrified to hear me say some of...
  • The Deity of Christ - Devotional

    12/02/2021 1:19:43 PM PST · by metmom · 4 replies ^ | 1997 | John MacArthur, Grace Community Church
    “[Christ] existed in the form of God” (Philippians 2:6). Christ possesses the very nature of God. In the second part of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, Christiana and her children travel toward the Celestial Country. During their pilgrimage, Interpreter introduces them to one of his male servants, whose name is Great-heart. When Christiana asks Great-heart to explain the nature of Christ’s forgiveness, part of his answer is: “He [Christ] has two natures in one Person, easy to distinguish but impossible to divide. There is a righteousness that belongs to both of these natures, and each righteousness is essential to that nature,...

    UK Civil servants have axed the word ‘Christmas’ from a proposed government campaign, for fear the term will offend minorities. British civil servants have apparently embraced their inner Scrooge, vetoing the use of the word ‘Christmas’ from being used in a coronavirus testing drive aimed at students, arguing that the use of the term runs the risk of offending minorities within the country. The campaign, which reportedly would have revolved around ministers using the slogan “Don’t take COVID home for Christmas,” is part of a larger government effort to limit the spread of the Chinese coronavirus after two cases of...

    This timeless warfighter’s aphorism used to be the motto of many a US Military Brigade and Battalion prior to our woke transformation. I am not sure if this quote is currently allowed in our new military of pronouns, experimental vaccines, transgender surgery, and Critical Race Theory.The quote is often attributed to General George S Patton, however if you analyze it deeper, the statement goes back much further. It is a corollary of the Roman aphorism, “Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum” which translates to, “To secure peace, prepare for war”. Yet even the Roman Axiom is merely a corollary to Sun...
