Obedience to God

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.

Don Wildmon Speech "That's What Christians Do Now"

In 1973 the Supreme Court said it was OK to kill unborn babies. Since then, we have killed more than the entire population of Canada. And it continues. A woman's choice? Half of those who have died in their mothers' wombs have been women. They didn't have a choice. It is called abortion.

Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.

First it was in dingy, dirty theaters. Then, convenience stores. Then, grocery stores. Then on television. Now it is in the homes of millions via the Internet. It is called pornography.
Me? I go to church, the minister preaches, I go home. That's what Christians do now.

The Case for Charity, or Why the First Effort to Repeal Obamacare Failed

Given all of the discussion today about our ‘rights’ to things such as healthcare, education, a job, etc.; I think it is appropriate we look at exactly what our role is in creation. What we own, what we owe, and what we are responsible for. We seem to have forgotten much, even within many of our churches.

Jonathan Edwards stated that the creator of something is also its governor.  As one had the power to create, they also had the power to change and/or to end. There is only one assumption being made for this article, and that is that God has created everything that has ever been created (see below). I believe this, and it is not a stretch. It’s an act of faith, but it is the only rational assumption one can make. There is simply no other philosophic thought or framework that can truly explain existence, morality, or knowledge - take your pick. You have also been given the gift of free will—freedom—by Him as well.

So what did our Creator create? From Genesis, chapter 1;

Lent and Love

LENTCraig Hudgins
Virginia Christian Alliance

Recently, while attending a funeral for a Catholic friend, Don Blake, President and Chairman of the Virginia Christian Alliance, noticed some pamphlets that reflected on the upcoming period of Lent, which is commonly celebrated by Catholics in preparation for Christendom’s most holy time of the year, Easter.

Liking what he read in the pamphlets, Don then called me, an evangelical, cradle Catholic and one of VCA’s board members, to discuss the concepts of Lent as outlined in those pamphlets. Don, whose work with VCA has created an ecumenically diverse Board and members, felt it might be useful to take up a similar approach to honoring and acknowledging our Lord’s sacrifice by highlighting an idea for contemplation each of the six weeks leading up to Easter. This is the first of six.

Why Ash Wednesday? Why Ashes?

First published on Return to Order

On Ash Wednesday Catholics proclaim their Faith in the public square as they go about marked with a black cross.

Still, as praiseworthy as it is for Catholics to uphold the feast of Ash Wednesday by making a point of receiving ashes, it can easily become merely a pious habit, “something we Catholics do.”

Yet, like everything in our Catholic Faith, the liturgical feast of Ash Wednesday and the custom of ashes has a rich history, deep meaning and rich symbolism.

The custom initiated back in the early Middle Ages when repentant public sinners submitted to forty days of penance. The bishop blessed the hairshirts, and the ashes which, after biblical penitential custom, were poured over the sinners’ heads. In time, all Christians whether public or private sinners, wished to benefit from the practice.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the season of Lent symbolic of the forty days Our Lord fasted in the desert. Occuring forty six days before Easter, it is consequently moveable-as early as Februay 4 and as late as March 10.

Bishop DiLorenzo: Standing up for Catholic doctrine

Letter to the Editor:

At last a Religious Official that is willing to up hold God’s laws concerning sexual deviancy. Congratulations to Bishop Francis Xavier DiLorenzo who stood down a Catholic committee that would have allowed a homosexual to serve in a key position.

The homosexual ‘steamroller’ that has buffaloed all major businesses and States in compliance with their agenda has also silenced most pastors who fear to make mention of them.

I know of Catholics that are urging Bishop DiLorenzo to take action on Democrat Senator Tim Kaine who is a member of the Richmond Diocese. Kaine, who is an honored man, champions positions that are in opposition to the BIBLE and Catholic law- homosexual marriage, allowing homosexuals to adopt children, transgender outrages and abortion.

Kaine claims he is against the killing of babies as in abortion but he is hypocritical in his supporting votes for abortion rights. Senator Kaine is probably President Obama’s key supporter for these assaults against God’s commands, second only, maybe, to Senator Harry Reid. These may be the reasons he was chosen to run as Vice President to extend Obama’s legacy.
