    In the struggles occurring in the US, the Left against Judeo-Christian values, we need to draw in to the Lord for our strength. He has already won the battle, we need only to stand firm with Him. 2 Chronicles 7:14 states, "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." The choir that I sing in recorded its latest CD on the Victoria Day weekend (the weekend before...
  • Should We Keep the Sabbath?

    Creation Research Institute ^ | 2003 | James A. Borland
    Some groups today, such as the Seventh-day Adventists, teach that keeping the seventh-day Sabbath is a perpetual moral law meant for all people, and that not keeping it is a sign of apostasy and disloyalty to God. They base their belief on Genesis 2:1–3, which tells of God resting after His creative work and then sanctifying the Sabbath day, and on the fourth commandment. They also argue that the New Testament teaches the continuity of seventh-day Sabbath observance by Christ’s followers, even after Christ’s death. These beliefs, however, are misguided. There is no universal moral obligation given in Genesis 2...

Leaving the principles of the doctrine of Jesus, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God. The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. I love the Lord, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications. Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him...

    The Bible teaches that the Christian life is one of constant growth. When you were born again, you were born into God’s family. It is God’s purpose that you will grow into fill stature and become mature in Christ. It would be against the law of God and nature if you were to remain a baby and thus become a spiritual dwarf. In 2 Peter 3:18, the Bible says that we are to grow. It implies steady development, constant enlargement, increasing wisdom. For one to grow properly certain rules must be observed for good spiritual health. 1.Read your Bible daily....

    Rorate Caeli ^ | March 30, 2017 | Veronica A. Arntz
    O Lord, I Have Loved the Beauty of Thy House” Beauty as an Essential Element of the Sacred Liturgy In Sacramentum Caritatis, Pope Benedict XVI writes, “Beauty…is not mere decoration but rather an essential element of the liturgical action, since it is an attribute of God himself and his revelation” (art. 35). Beauty, therefore, is not merely an external; rather, beauty is inseparable from the liturgy itself. To say this in the abstract is one thing, but to understand it in the concrete is much more difficult. To understand how beauty is an essential element of the liturgy, we...

    It was a joy to finally visit your church a couple of Sundays ago, and to worship with the believers there. You know IÂ’ve been looking forward to it for a long time. Just as you promised, the pastor is an excellent communicator and a man who loves GodÂ’s Word. His sermon was deeply challenging and led to some great conversations with my children. Now, you asked me why it looked like I wasnÂ’t singing. I know that was probably a little awkward, so thought IÂ’d send along a brief explanation. Primarily, itÂ’s becauseÂ…Â…I was not familiar with the...

    katholisches ^ | November 25, 2016 | Giuseppe Nardi
    (Rome) Cardinal Raymond Burke, the eminent religious lawyer, does not contradict the assertion of Pope Francis, that the Roman rite handed down was "only an exception for nostalgics". Also one of the most famous liturgists, Don Nicola Bux, raises contradiction. Since 10 November, is the new Pope's book (Nei tuoi occhi è la mia parola) "In your eyes my word is" in bookstores. In this interview Pope's confidant, Father Antonio Spadaro SJ, Pope Francis tells the Latin Mass: "The Latin Mass? Only one exception. Pope Benedict has made a proper and generous gesture to meet a certain mentality of some...

    What Is Your Biggest Distraction? No Need to Look Very Far! Msgr. Charles Pope • August 31, 2016 • We usually think of distractions as coming from the world around us, but is that really the most common source? Consider the following parable, drawn from the stories of the early Desert Fathers and from monastic experience:Sometimes there would be a rush of noisy visitors and the silence of the monastery would be shattered. This would upset the disciples; not the Master, who seemed just as content with the noise as with the silence. To his protesting disciples he said...

    Until we recapture the true meaning of elected officials as representative servants, and use our tongues to reinstate that fact, we will suffer the consequences of our own folly Deeper than PC mania that has skewed culture, government role titles have been reconfigured to instill reverence over familiarity. The repetitive wrongful identification of officials has produced a mindset far different from the original intent of government. All this to say that we’ve inadvertently changed our relationship to government by allowing changes in address to occur. At the top of the list is how we refer to elected officeholders – we’ve...

    Christian Week ^ | 5/1/16 | Jeff Clarke
    I was raised in a non-liturgically based Christian denomination and have since spent the vast majority of my adult life in a Pentecostal/Charismatic context. Suffice it to say, I was not well-versed in church liturgy. At least not in the traditional sense of the word. However, my experience in more formal liturgically-based church gatherings have always caused me to be more thoughtfully engaged in the service. Not just intellectually, but in contemplative, reflective, and prayerful ways as well. And, you know what I’ve learned? Liturgical cues give me the space to pause and ponder.

  • True or False? The Divisive Subject of Abortion Should Never be Addressed at Sunday Worship Services

    priestsforlife.org ^ | January 27, 2015 | Kevin Burke
    I was recently at a party where the topic of religion and abortion came up. A Christian minister overheard the discussion and abruptly interjected: “Abortion is a private and sensitive issue. Whatever your position on abortion, Sunday services are not the place to talk about the subject. We can’t let politics get in the way of preaching the Gospel.” Maybe you agree with this minister. The Shockwaves of Abortion There have been nearly 60 million abortions since 1973. Does the silence of the church communicate compassion to those who experienced an abortion? Is it sensitive and respectful to avoid addressing...
