  • Who Is Moshiach (the Jewish Messiah)?

    Chabad ^ | Unknown | Staff
    The Messianic Redemption will be ushered in by a person, a human leader, a descendant of Kings David and Solomon, who will reinstate the Davidic royal dynasty. According to tradition, Moshiach will be wiser than Solomon, and a prophet around the level of Moses. Ever since the destruction of the Holy Temple, in every generation there is an individual, a scion of the House of David, who has the potential to be the Moshiach. If at any moment the Jews are worthy of redemption, this person would be directed from Above to assume the role of the redeemer. In every...

    Ten ^ | 1700s | John Wesley
    The sabbath begun in the finishing of the work of creation; so will the everlasting sabbath in the finishing of the work of providence and redemption; and we observe the weekly sabbath in expectation of that, as well as in remembrance of the former, in both conforming ourselves to him we worship. He hath himself blessed the sabbath day and sanctified it. He hath put an honour upon it; it is holy to the Lord, and honourable; and he hath put blessings into it which he hath encouraged us to expect from him in the religious observation of that day....

    ‘One of the most recent cultural challenges to the Sixth Commandment and to the reality and integrity of the human person is the transgender ideology,’ Fr. Terrance Chartier said. BLOOMINGTON, Indiana (LifeSiteNews) – A Franciscan priest said that transgender ideology is an affront to at least four Commandments. “One of the most recent cultural challenges to the Sixth Commandment and to the reality and integrity of the human person is the transgender ideology,” Fr. Terrance Chartier of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate said during his homily on May 30 at the friary in Bloomington. Lying to someone and telling...

    Thousands of years ago, God gave mankind his 10 Commandments which became the basis for law and Western Civilization. Unfortunately, it's been a long time since they were updated to be more suitable for modern audiences! NOT OK! Thankfully, woke scholars have done just that! Here are the newly updated "woke" 10 Commandments. 1) Thou shalt have no other Gods before the all-powerful State (duh!) 2) Thou shalt not make for yourself any graven image (unless it's a giant bronze BLM raised fist you bow down to every morning) 3) Thou shalt not take the name of your Lord God...

    Love and Commandments: Francis Again Gets It WrongFrancis spoke at the August 11 General Audience about the Ten Commandments in order to relativise them,“May the Lord help us to journey along the path of the commandments but looking toward the love of Christ, with the encounter with Christ, knowing that the encounter with Jesus is more important than all of the commandments,” he said.This contraposition is wrong because loving Christ and observing his commandments is the same thing as Christ himself says in John 14,21, “He who has My commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves Me.”Francis is...

    It is an extraordinary thing when a movie becomes so meaningful, timeless, and impactful, that it remains relevant and popular while its audience grows with each new generation. In the case of Cecil B. De Mille’s The Ten Commandments, there are a multitude of reasons for that. The Ten Commandments has two significant components that work in its favor. For one; consider the source. The Biblical book of Exodus explicitly chronicles the sovereignty of God, as well as His intercessory involvement in freeing His chosen people, the Hebrews. It is an integral part of Hebrew history, and plays a vital...
  • Why Jesus Had To Die for us To Save us...ten commandments pt 14

    For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: (I Peter 3:18)We have had a very basic look at the Law of God, the Ten Commandments. God has given us his Law, and it is holy, Just and Good. But we have all failed to keep it in perfection. The law is beautiful as an instruction, and as a Revelation of God. It is also a look at what we were actually created to be like. The...
  • Jesus Christ Our Rest...ten commandments pt

    Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. ( Collossians 2:16-17)I told you last time, I would explain why I believe the command to observe the Sabbath, is the only one of the Ten Commandments not re-iterated in the New Testament. I do believe that the principle of the Commandment still stands; that we are to enter into the Rest of God, and to cease from our...
  • No Graven Images...ten commandments pt 3

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.( Exodus 20:4-6)The Second Commandment is not a prohibition against...
  • "... No Other gods Before Me..." Ten Commandments pt 2

    “You Shall Have No Other gods Before me…” ( Exodus 20:3)In this, the first Commandment, God lays exclusive and absolute claim to our hearts. We are to center ourselves around God himself, and no one else. Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all of thy heart, and with all of thy soul and all of thy mind and all of thy strength.Only the true God is worthy of such totality of the devotion of all of our faculties. This commandment tells us of the possibility of “other gods”, that they exist, and that people often try to center...
  • Ten Holy Words...Ten Commandments pt 1

    And God spake all these words, saying, I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. ( Exodus 20:1-3)God spake all of these Words saying… Moses didn’t originate the Ten Commandments, God spoke these Words. He also wrote them with his finger on tablets of stone, and re-iterated every single one of them, save one, in the New Testament. We are not saved by the Law, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have much to say to us and...

    Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

Rev 12:10As food and water are to physical health, So Truth is to the Soul and the Spirit. We all need the Truth to live.

Charles Pope September 23, 2018 Question: As a product of Jesuit education, I learned that if someone is not entitled to know the truth, then it is permissible to lie in order that the truth not be revealed to them, especially if they will use that information to harm others. Is this a valid view? — Ed Siering, Muscatine, Iowa Answer: If someone is not entitled to know the truth or facts about a certain situation, the clear...

    I am going to share a discovery with you that explains everything the left says and does. First, let me introduce you to Irving Lester Janis (26 May 1918 - 15 November 1990). He was a research psychologist at Yale University and a professor emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. He is most famous for his theory of “groupthink” which described the systematic errors made by groups when taking collective decisions. So what Eddie? Groupthink is a tired slur that gets tossed around, make this quick or I’m outta here. Wait! Groupthink is much more than a word. REF:...

    The Gospel Coalition ^ | 7/9/12 | Tim Keller
    I find it frustrating when I read or hear columnists, pundits, or journalists dismiss Christians as inconsistent because “they pick and choose which of the rules in the Bible to obey.” Most often I hear, “Christians ignore lots of Old Testament texts—about not eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, not executing people for breaking the Sabbath, not wearing garments woven with two kinds of material and so on. Then they condemn homosexuality. Aren’t you just picking and choosing what you want to believe from the Bible?” I don’t expect everyone to understand that the whole Bible is about Jesus...

    I won’t make any assumptions about how many readers noticed I took a three-month break from column writing. Nevertheless, I want to explain why. I needed the time to finish the first volume of the biggest project of my life as a writer, a commentary on the first five books of the Bible, or what are called the Torah in Hebrew. The commentary is addressed to people of every faith and, especially, to people of no faith. I have believed all my life that the primary crisis in America and the West is the abandonment of Judeo-Christian values, or, one...

    “How do I receive the redemption, the forgiveness that God has given me, the making of me a son with His Son? Lovingly, tenderly, with freedom? Or do I hide in the rigidity of the closed Commandments, that are more and more “safe” – with emphasis on the scare-quotes – but that do not give joy, because they does not make you free."

    If you from various kinds of bad thoughts and you lost your peace, this is a sign that "you live according to the flesh." Do you know that when you think of the Spirit of God there is neither ‪sadness nor ‪‎disappointments? Have you ever seen a disappointing saint? That's why the Apostle Paul taught to walk "by the spirit." (Romans 8: 5; Gal. 5:16). This is the only real way to overcome worldly difficulties and bad habits because when your mind is governed by the Spirit the result is peace and real life. If you want peace, walk by...

Every now and then a question comes in that seems like a good topic for the blog.The following question comes up frequently whenever I teach moral theology classes and we cover the issue of lying. In a way it is remarkable that the format of the question almost never changes, and that the usual (and I would argue questionable)...
