Advent Sunday.

While all the commercial people have moved from promoting black Friday — after Thanksgiving — to Cyber Monday (tomorrow) we forget that in the Church calendar this is the first day of the year. The year starts with Advent, which is a fast and a time of preparation for Christmas, which was a feast. The […]

I looked at the lectionary before looking at the news this morning. The times are becoming more akin to the days of Noah. This is not a good sign. Because God can do now what he has done in the past. Genesis 6:11-22 11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth […]

The introduction for the lectionary comes from the dread ilk, and it is accurate. What it misses is that if you don’t play, you don’t bow the knee to the servants of this age, you will be coerced into compliance. Sometimes compromise destroys our ability to seek God. I’ve personally seen this sort of thing […]

Those who love this world and align with this world are enemies to Christ. Being praised by the world is a sign you are not doing things well. In most times, either the people of Christ are persecuted, or the nations of Christ are under attack. “Four out of 5 people persecuted for their faith […]

There will be a time when Israel returns from exile, and many would say that this is the time: that the world will want the Jews to return. Initially they forced their way in, then they have sponosored people in. It may be that the Jewish state takes all the Jews, for the nations will […]

I like the old Chick comics. They are now deemed so insensitive that distributing them is considered a hate crime. One cannot talk about hell, or damnation. God is loving, patient and merciful. But he is just. For this life we will have to give account, and that should make us fear. There is a […]

In this time we are to preach God to all. God wants all men, of all nations, to be saved. We are not to define ourselves by our vices or sins, for all have sinned. We are not saved because we are righteous, we are saved because of God’s love and mercy. We are commanded […]

This elite are corrupt, within the church included. If you have a strong stomach, follow this link to Barnhardt, that one woman /pol/ of Catholicism. Because she documents how corruption happens. Or turn (again, you need to take something for the nausea) to Mundabor’s dissection of how we have made our children vulnerable. I have […]

This evening Kea asked me why we can’t have a week without concern for our children. She’s not the only one worried: our kids are at that age where they have to leave, establish themselves, and develop independence. We know our weaknesses through the trial of experience, at times bitter. We love our kids. We […]

I need to reiterate this: God is merciful and patient, but that does not mean that he does not care and he will not proclaim justice. Ahab was a bloody tyrant. He was doomed to death. Such is the fate of all tyrants: and he went to his death warned by a prophet. 2 Chronicles […]
