A brief examination of the patience of the LORD God with respect to man. This article focuses on the fact that certain men went beyond the limits of that patience. We must be aware that it is possible for us to go beyond the limit set by the LORD.
An open letter to Matthew Vines regarding his contention that one can be “gay” and a “Christian” and being “gay” is not sin. This answers his contention with Scripture, demonstrating that he willfully ignored important and pertinent teaching from Scripture to “prove” his point.
The new Pope Francis engages in mindless drivel which is diametrically opposed to the Catechism.
You cannot, on the one hand state that your god did not beget anything, and yet on the other say he created anything and everything. Quite plainly, the word “beget” and all its forms and derivatives encompass the act of creating. This much is inescapable, even in Arabic.
If Islam is truly a religion of peace, then in its most dedicated followers there will be no desire for reprisal when someone ignorantly portrays it as violent and Muhammad as a deceitful thug. Rather, there should be a shaking of the head and a desire to patiently instruct where that individual has gone wrong.
Naturally, this would seem to violate a principle which everyone observes from their earliest age:
That every action, no matter how minor and insignificant it may appear, has at least one consequence.
However, because the consequences of some actions take much longer to be realized than others, it appears (especially to those who deliberately blind themselves) that certain actions have no real consequence. Hence, they can be engaged in with impunity.
When it comes to the issue of behavior, there seems to be an unwillingness to confront certain behaviors as inherently destructive. Rather than call those behaviors out, and insure that everyone knows those particular behaviors are wrong, many leaders opt out of responding, leaving such behaviors unchallenged. In fact, there is a general attitude in this generation that all behaviors, unless they are immediately dangerous to life and health, are essentially equal and there is no real consequence for engaging in one particular behavior over another.
If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. (Col 3:1-3)
