  • The Death of Trajan ~ August 8 ~ His correspondence with Pliny, and his legendary rescue from Hell.

    Gloria Romanorum ^ | 8/8/17 | Florentius
    Conqueror of Dacia. Subduer of Parthia. The Roman Emperor Marcus Ulpius Traianus — or Trajan as he is known to history — died on August 8 in the year AD 117. By most measures, Trajan was a superior emperor. In his satirical work The Caesars, written in AD 361, the emperor Julian the Apostate puts these words into the mouth of Trajan in defense of his reign and exploits before the gods: "O Zeus and ye other gods, when I took over the empire it was in a sort of lethargy and much disordered by the tyranny that had long...

    American Thinker ^ | 06/15/2017 | Robert Arvay
    We all have our own views on separation of church and state. Some people think that the Constitution simply forbids the establishment of a Church of America. Others hold that any hint of religious principle must be excluded from the public arena. Where does Senator Bernie Sanders stand, and how does it affect his official actions? Although I am by no means an expert in matters of religion, based on a recent Senate hearing, I think I know enough to assert that Senator Sanders knows just enough about Christian doctrine (and in my opinion, about any religion, including his own)...
  • Jesus, Who Loves You, Warned Frequently About Hell

    Jesus, Who Loves You, Warned Frequently About Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • May 24, 2017 • Many people today put Hell in opposition to the love of God, but Jesus combines them. Here is an important truth: No one loves you more than Jesus Christ, yet no one spoke of or taught on Hell and Judgment more than He did. He gave warning after warning and told parable after parable, practically shouting about judgment and the reality of Hell.No “heresy” of our day is more widespread or pernicious than the denial of hell, its existence, and its sad frequency....

    We will all be up there in Heaven together Despite the indifferentism of our days, it often happens that the same question, which someone — perhaps afflicted with the perspective of eternal condemnation — had posed long ago to the Redeemer keeps coming back: ‘Lord, will only a few people be saved?’ (Lk 13:23). And although hardly anyone might want to recognize the fact, we know that the question of eternal happiness is related to fulfilling the commandments, persevering in the state of grace, and firm adhesion to the one true Church. Today, some tend to put the question in simplified...

    Scripture Does Not Tell Us to Storm the Gates of Hell Msgr. Charles Pope • April 2, 2017 • Recently in my Our Sunday Visitor “Question and Answer” column came the following question from a Catholic convert, in reference to the traditional understanding of the Lord’s promise to the Church: the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it (Matt 16:18).“Before my recent conversion, my (protestant) pastor said that Catholics misunderstand the text about the gates of Hell not prevailing against the Church. He said that it is silly that Catholics think of gates as if they were an...

Perez is picking up the endorsements of the heads of the Democratic National Committee's caucuses for women, Hispanics, Asian-Americans and rural Americans.

    A member of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party warned on Saturday night that a major conflagration would break out all over the world if US President-elect Donald Trump follows through with his plan to move the US embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. “All chances for peace and stability will be lost,” said Fatah Revolutionary Council member Osama Qawasmeh. “The gates of hell will be opened in the region and the world.” He also contended that “the free people of the world will not permit the passage of such a step.” .....

    Unsealed.org ^ | 11/29/16 | Gary
    I hold to a doctrine that many would probably consider to be unorthodox, some would even dare call it heresy (though notable ministries such as GotQuestions say it is a valid scriptural interpretation, though they reject it).  It's called Conditionalism, sometimes Annihilationism, and in a nutshell it is the belief that the unsaved (those who die apart from Christ) do not possess immortality and after a period of punishment proportional to their sins will be utterly destroyed - body and soul.  A chief proof-text is Matthew 10:28: Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot...

    Never talk with the devil, he is a "liar" and "swindler", "seeking our ruin" and for "this will be thrown into the abyss." If "we open our hearts", as Jesus asks us, and we do not go our way, we will have "joy and salvation."Vatican City (AsiaNews) - Eternal damnation "is not a torture chamber," but distance for ever from God, from the "God who gives happiness". But if "we open our hearts," as Jesus asks us, and we do not go our way, we will have "the joy and salvation” said Pope Francis at Mass this morning in Santa...

    I'm interested in debating if whether or not Judas and Pontius Pilate ended up in Hell. Despite being considered the most evil men in hisotry, since they were doing God's will in causing Christ to be crucified, surely they would in fact be looked on with favor by God and not condemned to Hell for eternity.
  • ‘Get Huma the Hell out of there’: Clinton aides’ response to Weiner Scandal

    The New York Post ^ | November 3, 2016 | Daniel Halper
    Hillary Clinton aides were so worried about Anthony Weiner that they hatched a plan in 2011 to “bust in the house” to rescue his wife from the pervy congressman, according to a new WikiLeaks email. The plan was hatched in an email from Jennifer Palmieri, who is now the Clinton campaign’s communications director, to fierce Clinton loyalists John Podesta and Neera Tanden. “Time to get in the haz mat suits,” Palmieri wrote on June 10, 2011. “Bust in that house and get Huma the hell out of there.” Huma refers to Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, Clinton’s closest aide. Tanden, who...

    Manhound's Paradise ^ | September 6, 2016 | Oakes Spalding
    This is a follow-up to Friday's more general post on Bishop Robert Barron's apologetics. Here I want to specifically evaluate one aspect of Barron's views on Hell. Before beginning, I want to head off one possible misunderstanding. In the following, I talk about the chances or "odds" that an individual person or a group of people may be saved. In doing so, I don't mean to imply that those chances may ever be known in any particular case, nor even that they are chances in the conventional sense - that eternal salvation is metaphysically equivalent to, say, a coin flip....

    Saint Leonard of Port Maurice was a most holy Franciscan friar who lived at the monastery of Saint Bonaventure in Rome. He was one of the greatest missioners in the history of the Church. He used to preach to thousands in the open square of every city and town where the churches could not hold his listeners. So brilliant and holy was his eloquence that once when he gave a two weeks' mission in Rome, the Pope and College of Cardinals came to hear him. The Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin, the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and the...
