    In 1992, I learned the meaning of the Hebrew word “shachah.” 10 years earlier, I met my wife on an oil rig. I was a geologist, working on a well, she was an engineer. I had spent 11 years in college, going full time including summers, and never heard the message of the gospel. My parents, sister, and brothers were completely unchurched, and I actually did not know the meaning of Christmas or Easter, and certainly did not know who Jesus Christ was. I can’t say I was an atheist – I simply was a non-theist. So, when I met...

    My journey with Free Republic began in late 1998. It was near the end of the Clinton Presidency, and there seemed to be a new wave of hope and a sense of renewed patriotism as we gathered to defeat Al Gore and elect George W. Bush. But, on the whole, we lacked a platform, a vehicle, whereby we could gather together and speak with a common voice. Jim Robinson provided that platform, utterly unique at the time, a place for conservative voices to sing out, to proclaim their views, to unite, and to encourage one another that we were not...

    Running Away From My Church Blog ^ | 1/13/2018 | Robert Messner
    One of my favorite places to sit and work is Panera Bread. No, this is not a plug for Panera Bread! It’s just that I enjoy the atmosphere – something about it helps me to complete my tasks more efficiently. I can sit in a booth for hours and lose myself in my work despite the noise around me. But once in awhile I will tune into that noise and pick up on some interesting conversations. Especially about church. Sometimes there will be a pastor sitting nearby talking about church matters with a staff member. More often than not, however,...

    The American Catholic ^ | January 8, 2018 | Donald R. McClarey
    PopeWatch: Obvious Posted on Monday, January 8, AD 2018 by Donald R. McClarey Phil Lawler, who has a book out about Pope Francis next month, has a telling anecdote that he relates at Catholic Culture:  How popular is Pope Francis? With the public? With bishops and priests? With young seminarians? Ask different people, and you’ll get different answers. It’s hard to gain an accurate reading.But here’s a remarkably revealing clue, nearly hidden in a feel-good story about an American seminarian, Nick Sentovich, who is a 3rd-year student at the North American College in Rome, “and like all third-year seminarians, he was...

    WND ^ | 10/13/2017 | Bob Unruh
    President Trump says Americans don’t worship government, they should call evil by its name and times are “changing back” to an earlier era when the nation’s founders “invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence.” His comments came Friday at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., an annual gathering of the nation’s leading conservative and faith organizations, where he spoke just a year ago as a candidate. He’s the first sitting president to address the group. “We know that it’s the family and the church, not government officials, that know best how to create strong and loving...

    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...
