  • Why we need to differentiate sinners from evildoers: Even though every individual is a sinner, it is obvious that not everyone is an evildoer.

    Christian Post ^ | 07/02/2023 | Oscar Amaechina
    Many of us are finding it difficult to discern who is a sinner and who is an evil doer. A look at Scripture can help us understand better: “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). In other words, every individual person has done something wrong and not lived up to God's perfect moral standard. Sin is in the nature of every individual; we’re born in it (Psalm 51:5).But I can’t remember any verse in the Bible that says that we are all evildoers. Evil is much deeper and more terrible than sin. Even though...

I respect their views, I respect those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all. I respect that, don't agree but I respect that. ..." ...

    By now, everyone with an IQ above that of roofing tar has heard of the allegations of sexual infidelity by Sen. Ted Cruz (Cuban - TX (by way of Canada)). I do not intend to review the entire timeline of this controversy, nor to engage in rumor mongering against Cruz, nor against Trump; still less to attribute the stories to any other candidate's campaign or shadow cabal or conspiracy. I just wish to note that last night, Sen. Cruz held a press conference with Carly Fiorina (ex-CEO, Lucent) in which he was asked to affirm that he had never had...
  • False Freedom; Jenner Liberated Himself From Sanity

    As I said yesterday, I am re-running these 2010 articles , in view of the Bruce Jenner Spectacle and the fawning adulation our sick and reverse culture heaps upon it. I hope for our sad, deformed culture, that “the Truth will set us free”.“While promising them liberty , they themselves are the slaves of corruption, for by what a man is overcome, by that is he brought into bondage” 2 Peter 2“Workers of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles!” Karl Marx“All the world over, so easy to see, that people everywhere just want to be...
  • The Good Thief, The Catholic Answer

    The Good Thief, The Catholic Answer Msgr. Charles Pope 5/15/2015 Q. In St. Luke’s Gospel, there is mention of the Good Thief on the cross near Jesus who repents. No name is given him, but most say his name is “Dismas.” Is this true?—B. Q., PhiladelphiaA. Here’s a reply from Msgr. Charles Pope: We don’t know. The story itself is very moving, and there is naturally a human tendency to want to know more. Thus traditions and legends often arise in cases like these. But the historical accuracy of such things is often difficult to assess. “St. Dismas” is a...

    What Ever Happened to the Spiritual Works of Mercy? By: Msgr. Charles PopeDuring daily masses at this time we are beginning to read through John Chapter 6. There of course is a glorious focus and teaching of the Lords true presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.However, there is also another important teaching given at a critical moment in chapter 6 that is important for us to lay hold of today. It is a call to recover a greater awareness of the importance of the spiritual works of mercy. We will list what they are in the moment, but for now, consider that, despite living in rather...

    The Lord Jesus give a penetrating analysis of the state of the sinner and some very sobering advice to we would-be saints in today’s Gospel. Let’s look at the Gospel in two stages: The Analysis of the Sinner and the Advice to the Saints.I. ANALYSIS OF THE SINNER -  The Lord Jesus describes a sinful steward in the opening lines of this gospel. Let’s look at the description: A. DEFINITION (of the sinner)- Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward  – Notice he is called a steward not an owner. God is the owner of everything,...

    Author, lawyer and former game show host Ben Stein says politics are getting a little too personal, and believes candidates should not be judged by their "gossipy love life." Appearing on CBS' "The Early Show," Stein said the coverage of GOP president contender Herman Cain and allegations of extramarital affairs was getting to be too much.

    He says there was nothing indecent going on. Do we have any reason to believe anything he says, though? I’m just spitballing here, but he may, just may, be only admitting to as much as he absolutely has to. And with Patterico’s prosecutorial brief, lying about not tweeting with any minor at all became untenable. Rep. Anthony Weiner sent private electronic messages to a 17-year-old Delaware girl but maintains there was nothing inappropriate in his communications with her. In a statement to Roll Call Friday evening, the New York Democrat’s spokeswoman Risa Heller said, “According to Congressman Weiner, his communications...

    There is absolutely nothing about our God’s past that isn’t worthy of our uttermost worship. There is nothing about our God’s past to be ashamed of. There are no Church Archives or First Presidency Vaults or Correlation Committees in heaven that hide away the embarrassing records of God’s past sins. He has always been pure, and holy, and admirable, and awesome, and utterly worthy of our enjoyment and worship. You can confidently worship God for all who he has been, is, and will be, and all he has ever done. "Why should I believe that God never sinned?" Because he...

Not much unexpected there. But along with the letter, Clinton has included a flyer from the DSCC that's bound to raise eyebrows. "DSCC funds go towards efforts to unseat far-right Republican senators like admitted sinner David Vitter..." the flyer says, referring to the Louisiana senator who admitted patronizing a prostitution service...

    There are a few who say that hell is not eternal and that some day God’s mercy will overcome his justice and hell will be emptied. What does the Bible and catechism say about this? CCC 1021 Death puts an end to human life as the time open to either accepting or rejecting the divine grace manifested in Christ.CCC 393 It is the irrevocable character of their choice, and not a defect in the infinite divine mercy, that makes the angels’ sin unforgivable.

    President-elect Barack Obama has yet to attend church services since winning the White House earlier this month, a departure from the example of his two immediate predecessors. On the three Sundays since his election, Obama has instead used his free time to get in workouts at a Chicago gym. Asked about the president-elect's decision to not attend church, a transition aide noted that the Obamas valued their faith experience in Chicago but were concerned about the impact their large retinue may have on other parishioners. "Because they have a great deal of respect for places of worship, they do not...

OK .. this is a non-narcotic drug. Limbaugh's attorney explains that the bottle carried the doctor's name for privacy reasons. Since authorities in Palm...

Limbaugh was returning on a flight from the Dominican Republic when officials found the drugs, among them Viagra.

Limbaugh had admitted to...

    by Mark Finkelstein June 27, 2006 If the mark of a person at ease with himself is the ability to have a chuckle at his own expense, then Rush Limbaugh is a supremely serene man. In the wake of the incident in which he was detained at the Palm Beach International Airport when it was discovered he had in his luggage a vial of Viagra with a prescription not in his name, you might have imagined that Rush would have begun today's show with an indignant denial of wrongdoing. He might have explained in tedious detail that in fact the...

    Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is joking about his police detainment at the airport yesterday for carrying Viagra in his luggage. "I've been racking my brain. I'm trying to figure out how Bob Dole's luggage got on my airplane," Limbaugh clowned as he opened his national program today. "I told the doctor, I said, 'Look, I'm worried about the next election, not ... .' A misunderstanding. Now, things are what they are." Former Sen. Bob Dole of Kansas is well-known for his use and endorsement of Viagra, a male sexual-enhancement drug. The host then changed subjects to discuss his visit...

    Freudenschade, baby! They NEVER learn. Once again we had premature DUmmie celebrations over an event that fails to happen as you can see in this THREAD titled, "Limbaugh Detained At Airport (illegal prescription drugs...and viagra!)." In this case, the non-event that the DUmmies were celebrating was the "drug bust" of Rush Limbaugh yesterday at Palm Beach International Airport. I put "drug bust" in quotes because there was NO drug bust. What happened was that officials found Viagra in Rush's luggage, questioned him about it, and then released him. NO bust. The Viagra was prescribed by his doctor under his...

    Rush Limbaugh was briefly detained Monday at Palm Beach International Airport when customs agents inspected the conservative talk show host's luggage and found Viagra that belonged to two Florida doctors, authorities said. "He was not arrested," Palm Beach County sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Pete Palenzuela said. Limbaugh's attorney, Roy Black, issued a statement through a spokesman saying that agents found a "non-narcotic prescription drug, which had been prescribed by Mr. Limbaugh's treating physician but labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes." Limbaugh, 55, of Palm Beach, and three others arrived on a private jet...
