    Intimacy is the key to your breaking through in your days ahead . So persevere as Daniel and Gabriel for I will send My angels of My Presence as Michael (AS GOD) as you spend time in mine . . . DANIEL 10:12-21 12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael,...

Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city of three days’ journey [sixty miles in circumference]. 4 And Jonah began to enter into the city a day’s journey,...

    Vivificat - From Contemplation to Action ^ | 3 May 2015 | TDJ (@vivificat)
    Brethren, Peace be with you. Back in 2011 I wrote Do We Need to Use a Different Word for Marriage in the Church? and, Should Catholic Clergy Cease Signing Civil “Marriage” Licenses? I say Aye!, in which I supported the idea of getting the Church out of the business of issuing marriage licenses, an idea originally put forward by Monsignor Charles Pope of the Archdiocese of Washington, DC. Today, Father (Protopresbyter) John Whiteford, an Orthodox priest from Houston, TX formulated on his blog a slightly different proposal which has the state, not the churches, get out of the business of licensing...

    This fallen world adheres to many different Babelologies (Gen. 11, Rev. 17:2), but out of the thousands of human religions or “spiritual philosophies” which have dominated our world since the Tower of Babel, these "religions" are placed into just two godless categories; relativism and fundamentalism. Spiritual relativism is the most damnable of all human philosophies for it eliminates any redemption in RIGHTEOUSNESS for the transgressions of the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS absolutes of Almighty God. To adhere to spiritual relativism means (morally or spiritually) that there are NO absolute TRUTHS and all man made delusions are equal and relative (Prov. 14:12, John...

  • Political Correctness: The Cause of Same-Sex Marriage, Social Decline and a Growing Oppressive State

    Traditional moral reasoning shows same-sex marriage creates immense harm in the social fabric. Politically correct moral reasoning shows redefinition to be fair - to be all well and good. If political correctness wins, we all have to go around pretending - under the force of the law - that all is well and good. Meanwhile society will be slowly collapsing all around us and we, and our children, will have to suffer the increasingly poor outcomes in silence. Help.

    Chesterton once wrote that “War is not the best way of settling differences—but it is the only way of preventing them from being settled for you.” If the Catholic Church is to continue to teach the timeless truths about the dignity of all human persons from conception to natural death, and the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman, the Church needs to begin to seriously engage in the war that has already been declared against her by those who wish to destroy these teachings. In the past few weeks, there has been an escalation of the attacks...

    What Are You Becoming? By Francis Frangipane It is insightful to me that when Luke listed the twelve apostles, when he came to Judas Iscariot, he identified him as the apostle "who became a traitor" (Luke 6:16). Let me start with a question, a sincere question that may be the most important question you can ask yourself: What are you becoming? Judas Iscariot was an apostle "who became a traitor." This was a man who had been used mightily by the Lord to "heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse the lepers [and] cast out demons" (Matt. 10:8). Judas knew...

    Texas Values congratulates The Austin Pregnancy Resource Center (APRC) and two other faith-based pregnancy centers for women and babies, who made a victorious decision in choosing to stand for their convictions of faith. APRC withdrew its participation from Amplify Austin, a large 24-hour fundraising drive for non-profits this week, after the organization placed restrictions on faith-based groups. The restrictions included that funds from the event could not go to groups that communicate their faith while helping others or “promote religious doctrine or instruction.” Funding for the non-profit pregnancy centers is vital to their ability to help pregnant women and babies....

    A lot feminists today insist that a person must be pro-choice to be pro-woman. This is highly ironic since many first wave feminists were adamantly against abortion, and in fact many of the anti-abortion laws overturned by Roe v. Wade were put in place by pro-life feminists in the 19th century. Rather than viewing abortion a tool of female empowerment, they viewed abortion as a sign of the oppression of women by men. Here are a few examples. Heard of any of these people?

    While in 2014 the days of throwing Christians to wild beasts in the arena may be behind us, the persecution of Christians around the world isn't.

As a new report from a leading ministry to the persecuted church shows, last year was one of the most violent on record for believers worldwide—and 2015 could be worse.

Finally, she pulled herself together enough to speak. With a voice that sounded as weary as if she had aged 100 years since the last time we talked, she said, “I’m pregnant.” My heart sunk on her behalf. I was completely pro-choice and didn’t find the idea of abortion to be troubling, but I knew that...
