  • Paul at Antioch of Syria - Paul's 1st Missionary Journey

    04/08/2018 8:11:21 PM PDT · by GoldenState_Rose
    The Word of God grew and multiplied under much persecution. Many of the disciples were driven from Jerusalem and the city of Antioch in Syria was gaining importance in the early church. When this was reported at Jerusalem, Barnabas was sent to Antioch for a special mission. He sought Saul (later called Paul) in the city of Tarsus and Saul returned with Barnabas to Antioch. Many great things were happening at Antioch and in this city the disciples of Jesus were first called "Christians". Around 48 AD, in the springtime, Paul and his companions Barnabas and Mark were called on...

  • Gaffe of the Century! NYT Says St. Paul Ordered Christians to ‘Execute’ Homosexuals

    Breitbart ^ | June 19, 2016 | Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.
    With remarkable insouciance, NYT writers Jeremy W. Peters and Lizette Alvarez blithely make reference to “a Bible verse from Romans that calls for the execution of gays,” meaning Saint Paul’s letter to the Romans 1:18-32.As anyone who has ever read the New Testament knows, Saint Paul never permits that Christians should commit any violence whatsoever against homosexuals, but the Times editors apparently thought that fact-checking with the original text was superfluous or that readers were too ignorant to check for themselves.The Times report, titled “After Orlando, a Political Divide on Gay Rights Still Stands,” follows on the fatal shooting of...

    To mark the Jubilee of Mercy, some significant but little known monuments are opening up all over Rome. One of those sites is the cemetery where Saint Paul was buried after his martyrdom, about four miles from the Vatican. The necropolis was discovered through excavations between 1917 and 1918. It's one of the greatest records of Roman life in the first few centuries after Jesus Christ.

    Pope Benedict XVI said last night that bone fragments found inside the tomb of St Paul in Rome had been carbon dated for the first time, "confirming the unanimous and uncontested tradition that they are the mortal remains of the Apostle Paul". He said that archaeologists had inserted a probe into the white marble sarcophagus under the Basilica of St Paul's Outside the Walls which has been revered for centuries as the tomb of St Paul. The pontiff said: "Small fragments of bone were carbon dated by experts who knew nothing about their provenance and results showed they were from...

  • Forget Iowa; presidential future will be decided here (Minneapolis GOP convention)

    The Minneapolis/St. Paul Star-Tribune ^ | January 2, 2008 | Katherine Kersten
    Today, Iowa is the center of the political universe, but for only a day. Right here in Minnesota is where the next president will be chosen. I know the conventional wisdom: Candidates who hope to capture their party's nomination must make an early splash in Iowa or New Hampshire, or at least in Florida's primary on Jan. 29. As a result, it's thought, the GOP convention in the Twin Cities later this year will merely anoint a nominee chosen months earlier, in the sort of anticlimactic, scripted coronation we've seen for decades. This year, I predict, things will be different....

    Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul said today that he could see no possible reason to ever launch military action or initiate a war, vowing instead to battle efforts he said are undermining the individual liberties of people in America. In an interview with Washingtonpost.com's PostTalk program, the Texas congressman said he could see "no reason" to justify military action if he were elected president. He compared the United States to a schoolyard bully and said the country has no reason to flex its muscles overseas. "There's nobody in this world that could possibly attack us today," he said in the...

    Eighteen months after the sarcophagus believed to have once contained the remains of St. Paul the apostle was positively identified by Vatican archaeologists, Pope Benedict XVI has given his approval to plans by investigators to examine the interior of the ancient stone coffin with an optical probe, according to a German Catholic paper. As WND reported in 2005, the sarcophagus was discovered during excavations in 2002 and 2003 around the basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls in south Rome. "The tomb that we discovered is the one that the popes and the Emperor Theodosius [A.D. 379-395] saved and presented...

    Vatican archaeologists have unearthed a sarcophagus believed to contain the remains of the Apostle Paul that had been buried beneath Rome's second largest basilica. The sarcophagus, which dates back to at least 390 A.D., has been the subject of an extended excavation that began in 2002 and was completed last month, the project's head said this week. "Our objective was to bring the remains of the tomb back to light for devotional reasons, so that it could be venerated and be visible," said Giorgio Filippi, the Vatican archaeologist who headed the project at St. Paul Outside the Walls basilica....

    St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman said this morning that he does not support a controversial effort to build a $28.5 million levee at the St. Paul Downtown Airport. His decision could potentially kill a nearly 10-year effort by the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) to protect the airport from periodic flooding.

    The debate about neonatal circumcision is over. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), neonatal circumcision is the result of ignorance, bad medical practice and American social and cultural pressure. Regarding the three most commonly cited justifications for neonatal circumcision (penile cancer, venereal disease and penile hygiene), the AAP now states that the benefits are negligible, which means that the majority of American men are walking around without foreskins for no good reason. Yet, the barbaric practice shows no sign of abating, and for this reason I plan to shed some light on the cultural dark spot of circumcision....

    Less than 48 hours after Chris Coleman was swept into office, Progressive Minnesota Executive Director Ryan Greenwood was on the phone, trying to revive efforts to pass a living-wage law in St. Paul. One of Greenwood's main obstacles to the proposal was removed this week with Mayor Randy Kelly's crushing electoral defeat, and Greenwood saw an opportunity. He is not alone. Coleman's victory Tuesday has emboldened a City Council majority and progressive interests that are getting ready to push an aggressive agenda early in the new mayor's term. Proposals that Kelly sidetracked are being given new life, and changes for...
