  • The World Lies In The Wicked One...war on Saints pt 12

    And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness. And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.(I John 5:10-21)We cannot do a study of Satan’s War on the saints without facing the reality the Apostle John warns us of, that the Whole World lies in the power of the...
  • Millennials are choosing pizza, push-ups and video games over church

    The New York Post ^ | August 2, 2017 | Lauren Steussy
    Millennials are losing their faith and replacing it with pizza, pushups and profound digital connections. Just 27 to 28 percent of people in their 20s and early 30s attend religious services regularly, according to the latest figures from the Pew Research Center. Compare that to the 38 percent of baby boomers who log time in houses of worship, and 51 percent of folks in the silent and greatest generations who still show up for services. Instead, millennials are getting their spiritual fix from secular pursuits such as fitness classes and Facebook groups — community-driven activities that create a sense of...

    APRIL 26 MORNING His left hand is under my head, and His right hand doth embrace me. Underneath are the Everlasting Arms. When [Peter] saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with His Hand. The...

    Our Lord Jesus Christ, ... though He was rich, yet for your sakes ... became poor, that ye through His poverty might be rich. It pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell. The brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; being made so much better than the angels, as He hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent Name than they. Who, being in the...

    Thou shalt call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins. Ye know that He was manifested to take away our sins. - That we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness. -He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him. He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all. - Thus it behoved Christ to suffer, ... that...
  • November 8th: Spiritual Warfare

    As America draws near to the important act of voting, there are some spiritual details we might miss. When, in the first century, Paul wrote to the Christians in Ephesus, the culture was dominated by the worship of the goddess Artemis. A kind of Mother Nature served by galli (homosexual priests), she symbolized human autonomy from the Creator and represented the universal worship of Nature. Acts 19 gives us a sense of the spiritual state of Ephesus and so helps us as we consider our present situation. Architecturally impressive, Ephesus was full of sorcerers, witches and astrologers, who practiced occult...

    Where Will You Be When the First Trumpet Sounds? A Good Question from an Advent Hymn Msgr. Charles Pope • December 2, 2015 • Part of the genius of the African-American spirituals is their ability to treat serious themes such as the final judgment in a creatively compelling manner that steers a middle course between unproductive fear and prideful presumption. Some of them are even playful: "I would not be a sinner. I'll tell you the reason why. I'm afraid my Lord might call my name and I wouldn't be ready to die!" Another spiritual says, "Satan wears a hypocrite's...

    Of Hunger and Hallucinations – How the Stages of Starvation Describe the Decaying West Msgr. Charles Pope • July 27, 2015 • Yesterday’s post dealt with the capacity of this world, by God’s promise, to provide sufficient food for us. While hunger does exist, it is due more to human sinfulness than insufficient resources.But even more prevalent these days than physical hunger is spiritual hunger, if not outright starvation. As is the case with physical hunger, the source of spiritual hunger is not God, who has given us abundant grace and truth; it is we who are the source. It...

    Someone is pulling our leg. This has to be a joke. And the government needs to call their bluff on it. The Public Service Alliance of Canada has come forward with some pretty tall demands for their employees. These include an extra week of paid holiday every year and one cent for every hour worked by their members to be contributed to a “social justice fund” that the union would control. The government must say no to these. But they’re not even the headline material. They’re just the opening act. No, the real doozy is they want employees to be...

  • A blow to the New Atheism? Britain is losing its religion - and becoming "spiritual" instead

    A study by Theos shows the apparently limited appeal of scientific materialism. But is it evidence that hardline atheism of the Richard Dawkins variety has little popular appeal? Modern Britain is "spiritual" but not religious. That's the headline finding of an opinion poll, and accompanying report, released this week by the Christian think-tank Theos. The ComRes poll - which confirms a trend identified in several previous surveys - found that well over half those questioned (59%) said that they believed in some kind of spiritual being or essence. There were substantial, though minority, levels of belief in specific concepts such...

    Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.(Ephesians 6:10-12)It is becoming increasingly obvious to many of us who observe the steady assault against everything “Judeo” or “Christian” about our once great civilization, that the opposition to all that is good, transcends mere political, legal, media,...

    Authorities are searching for a Washington woman who was last seen walking away from a campground in nothing but a fanny pack to go on a 'spiritual quest'. Maureen Kelly, 19, went missing early Sunday night from the Canyon Creek Campground in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest in southwest Washington, according to KPTV. A friend told the Skamania County Sheriff's office that Kelly left the campsite to go on a naked 'spiritual quest' with nothing but a fanny pack, but she never returned.

    I have heard and read a couple of comments by O'Reilly regarding his "Killing Jesus" book. He calls Jesus a revolutionary. He says that his new book in his "Killing" series will present the story in terms of historic and political events that changed the world. This tracks with the interview he had with Downey and husband on "The O'Reilly Factor" prior to the Bible episodes beginning. He asked Downey their take on the Bible. She replied to the effect that they just wanted to present the stories. OReilly's reply related to his own book and said something along the...
