  • You and I Are Barabbas

    The Way OneVike Sees It ^ | 11/30/20 | Chuck Ness
    Like our sin that goes away never to be brought up again by God, so too is Barabbas to history. Neither Christian nor Jewish writings, ever mention Barabbas again. Barrabas was the scapegoat which was released into the wilderness, so that the Levitical ceremonial law of sacrifice could be fulfilled by Christ. The word scapegoat means something entirely opposite from what it meant at the time the King James version of the Bible was wrote. Today, the word is used most often in sports media. It 's used when a particular player or coach is being blamed for a...

    Fr. Frederick William Faber ^ | 12-08-2020 | CharlesOconnell
    During the first 1,500 years of Christianity, Mary was regarded as the peer of Enoch, Elijah and, according to a Jewish targum (a biblical commentary), Moses, by God taking her bodily up into heaven. (Orthodox and Catholics allow that she may have just newly died during the Assumption, calling her death “falling asleep”.) In two-thirds of the Christian tradition, across the Orthodox and Catholic world, Mary is regarded as having been specially privileged, called Theotokos, God-bearer. In order that the birth of Jesus would be in a fitting vessel, Catholics believe Mary was also the peer of Eve prior to...

    The Way OnVike Sees It ^ | 11/26/20 | Chuck Ness
    It has been said that while money is the biggest stumbling block to the rich, worry is the biggest stumbling block to the poor. However, I have read about many rich people worrying about their money and I have known many poor people who have stumbled with what little money they did have. We live in the most powerfully affluent society the world has ever seen, not since Solomon ruled Israel has a country been so affluent as America is today. Why even the poor are wealthy when compared to the poorest people in places like Bangladesh. Even with...
  • Who Are Those Who Use a Fire Extinguisher on Jesus' Message "I Have Come to Set the Earth on Fire"?

    Jesus | 11-13-2020 | CharlesOconnell
    "I have come to set the earth on fire." (Luke 12:49) Jesus' statement of fire is the fire of His love' it is powerful, all consuming in Christ's love for His Father and His creation. Jesus wants the whole world to burn with the intensity of love He has for His Father and man.Who are those who seek to censor Jesus, to keep the distorted Image of Jesus but to turn a fire extinguisher on His True Message?John Milton sang that satan is Jesus' brother, a false characterization like Loki child of Ice Giants as Wotan's adoptive son and self-proclaimed...

    One of my dearest memories is from our wedding ceremony when my husband’s brother, Keith, played the guitar and sang, “I Am The Bread of Life,”  one of our favorite hymns.  And, if you listened and liked that version, you will enjoy this upbeat performance by the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir.Tragically, Keith died of cancer at age 55 in 2011. Consequently, whenever we hear the hymn, we think of him.“I Am the Bread of Life” was written in 1966 by Sister Suzanne Toolan, a Catholic nun. Toolan tells an astonishing story about how she initially tossed her composition in...

    Psalm 93 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

    Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul. ( I Peter 2:11)By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.(...

    Hated For My Names Sake by Chuck NessOctober 25, 2020 Many people complain when a Christian, like me, uses Trump's faith as a reason for his success. While I understand their argument, I disagree with it. We are told by Christ, that if we have the faith of a mustard seed, we could accomplish amazing things. Throughout his life, Donald Trump has accomplished amazing things. Yet, once he became President, his accomplishments have overshadowed even those of Ronald Reagan. Yes, I said that. I loved Reagan, but even he did not have to face the things Trump has.TrumpÂ’s faith...

  • WWJD?: Should Christians Always Do What Jesus Would Do?

    WWJD? Should we always do what Jesus would do? I think the answer is obvious: No. Don’t get me wrong. I love Jesus. He’s God. There’s no person who is a greater arbiter of what’s right and wrong. There’s no person who could do better than he would do. Generally speaking, we should take our cues from his life and public ministry. But if we are honest, we shouldn’t—and can’t—always do what Jesus would do. Here are three examples where Jesus did something we should not do. Jesus made certain claims. In John 10:30, Jesus said, “I and the Father...
