    [Catholic Caucus] Polish Police Disrupt Mass, Kidnap Priest (Video) Polish police removed Salesian Father Michał Woźnicki, 54, from his room while he was celebrating an October 19 Traditional Latin Mass.

Nevertheless, he kept living in the Salesian house in Poznan where he built an altar in his room in order to say Mass for some faithful. The priest doesn't comply with coronavirus restrictions and doesn't use masks. Therefore, in a spirit of mercy, the Salesians called police. When the officers entered, Woźnicki told them to...

    The left believes Christians should be free to worship whatever sky-fairies they want, providing its a part-time commitment behind closed doors.While interviewing Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, last week, CNNs Chris Cuomo expressed concern that Judge Amy Coney Barretts faith appears more central to her value system and her behavior and thoughts than it would be for just an ordinary Catholic. Cuomo went on to suggest in an interview with former 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg that peoples faith doesnt matter, but their policy positions affected by it do. What on earth does this mean? It doesnt matter if you have...

    In South Bay United Pentecostal Church v. Newsom, (SD CA, Oct. 15, 2020), a California federal district court refused to grant a preliminary injunction to a church that challenged California's current COVID-19 restrictions on worship services. The state limits plaintiffs indoor worship services to the lesser of 25% of building capacity or 100 people. The church had earlier unsuccessfully appealed a challenge to an earlier version of state restrictions all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. (See prior posting.) According to the district court: Plaintiffs now argue ... that Californias scientific pronouncements are largely baseless, and that by all...

    See, I set before you today life and good, death, and evil. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will have life and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But, if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed.

    "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities..." The laws of the United States are now positively anti-Bible. The U.S. joins the other "advanced" wealthy nations in being anti-Biblical and anti-Christian. Even with the slowing effects in some ways of the Trump presidency, the nation's laws still, in so many ways, require Christians to compromise on if not simply abandon God's Word, or else face...

    Concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night (1 Thessalonians 5:1-2). Paul described to the disciples what would take place when Christ returns: The Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the...

    According to recent survey, nearly a third of self-described evangelicals do not believe that Jesus Christ is truly God. Arianism, as it turns out, is a heresy that plagues multiple generations of the Church, not just the one of the fourth century.Well, over and over the Church has, in various times and ways, ruled that some beliefs are not acceptable alternatives within Christianity. Adherents are, in fact, outsiders to the faith. For example, nearly 100 years ago, in a book entitled Christianity and Liberalism, Presbyterian scholar J. Gresham Machen argued, in an extensive scholarly treatment, that liberal Christianity was not...

    The apostle Paul, writer of most of the New Testament, made an extraordinary admission in Romans: In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans (Romans 8:26). Notice the key phrases: We do not know what we ought to pray for. That is written in first person plural Paul included himself! The mightiest apostle in history didnt know how to properly pray? The Spirit helps us in our weakness. Are we all really so spiritually...
