Deception and the Antichrist Part II
Is it true that it is proper and right that we be treated better? Absolutely, but is it also true that we do not “deserve” to be treated better? The answer to that question is an emphatic yes. If we got what we deserve we would all be destined to be separated from God for all eternity. Can you see the difference between what the word of God tells us to be and to do to others and what the idea that we “deserve” to be treated better is? If you and I cannot see this difference we have not come to know the iniquity of our own hearts.Samhuiin: Invocation Of A Druid Ritual: Fire Festival
Light a candle or if outside use an iron cauldron or fire pit. Begin by meditating on what is passing, what needs to be shed and what, in ourselves and our lives, we need to let go of at this time.Is Radical Islam The Enemy?
If you listen to some right wing pundits, you might gather the false impression that there are three major branches of Islam: Sunni, Shiite and radical. Even well-meaning commentators have become accustomed to referring to what I call radical hislamists as radical Islamist. It’s an oxymoron to combine the term radical, with Islam.Surviving Trials, Tribulations and Sufferings
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do the bad people of this world seem to have it so easy and how come they are not being punished? Why does God allow His Christian people to suffer? Doesn’t God care for His people? Has God turned His back on us?When Killing Is Necessary
I love my home state of Texas. It is a land of plenty with an amazing array of beautiful landscapes and a large variety of wildlife. That includes snakes – lots of them. I do not love snakes.Our Father Knows Best, Part 2
This is part 2 of “Our Father Knows Best”. Our Father in Heaven, perfect and loving, knows what is best for each of His children.Destination Unknown
I have learned over the years to take one step at a time, one day a week, one month a year. When I try to anticipate God’s intent for my life, I have a tendency to trip, stumble and fall.Our Father Knows Best, Part 1
The old TV show “Father Knows Best” was one of my favorites. This is the same thing that Jesus was communicating about our Heavenly Father. He truly knows best.Does or Doesn’t the Catholic Church Believe in Extraterrestrials?
Several months ago, I wrote an article about the possibility of life on Mars, and suggested that it would be problematic for the Catholic Church, as it might throw a wrench in their storyline and the belief systems of many of their followers. Interestingly enough, I was challenged on my comments by a young Deacon who was doing some research online. He asked; whatever gave me that idea – that the Catholic Church said there are no extraterrestrials? He indicated that the Church hadn’t made up its mind and didn’t have an official statement either way.Sin Is a Choice
God is not involved in any sins we commit. He sees and knows about them, but He is not participating in any of them. He allows sin to happen in our lives because hopefully sooner than later we will open our hearts and eyes to want to change and be cleansed from all unrighteousness.Six Reasons For You To Become A Christian
