The Quick and the Dead

God's Maintenance Man

2 Timothy 4:1-2

4I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;

2Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

So which are you? Are you among the quick or the dead? This is not a reference to how fast you can run! This is a reference to the nature of your spirit! Paul tells us that the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead will quicken your mortal body! That word quicken means to make alive! The Spirit of God, otherwise known as the Holy Spirit, brings life into our spirits when it enters in at the time of salvation. It is a similar life giving as when God breathed life into Adam into garden. He had formed the…

Discussions with an Atheist – Part 13

Considering the Bible

atheist

A long time ago, I was browsing my Facebook page when I came across a post that ridiculed Kirk Cameron’s efforts to sell an “Atheist” Bible.
A friend (who it turns out to be an atheist) seemed to think that Kirk was “uninformed”
Well I thought, lets discuss this issue, and what follows is a record of our discussion.
I really looked forward to his responses and enjoyed considering and responding to his concerns.
Some of my friends comments are a bit lengthy, and as I read them I found echoes of myself, seeking to defend a position simply by supplying a massive quantity of words, knowing inside that he quality of the argument was weak.
If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus, you may find encouragement, and some understanding of an atheist’s worldview.
If you are an atheist, I would encourage you to read and consider my…

Favorite Quotes – Thomas à Kempis

My Pastoral Ponderings

We should so root ourselves in God that we do not need to look for comfort anywhere else.

Thomas à Kempis, The Imitation of Christ

As I continue sharing some of my favorite quotes, here is a quote from what is probably the single most important book in my spiritual formation (outside of the Bible, of course) – The Imitation of Christ. I chose this quote today because it continues a theme from last week of finding comfort in God. Last week I shared a quote from Martin Luther stating that “There is on earth no greater comfort than Baptism.” In today’s quote, Thomas à Kempis encourages us to so root ourselves in our baptisms and in God that we do not need to look for comfort anywhere else in this world. This is wise encouragement that I need to hear again and again.

2021 Pharisees!

JANUARY 11, 2021PASTOR RANDY

Well, I’m back–along with my sense of humor and snark. Being 64 years old has its advantages. Besides all those Senior Discounts, I’m too old to beat around the bush–and play nice. My years are counting down and I want these remaining years to count. As I shared yesterday in my message, I’ve been intending to get back to writing. But intending doesn’t make the baby a dress–and a highway to a certain undesirable location is paved with the good ones.

The Spirit has finally moved me from intentions to actions–and I owe it all to the events of last week in Washington, D.C. I want to speak to those who profess to be–call it “Christian” or “disciple”…

Who Cranked the Entropy Clock?

Thoughts from Mark "Hat" Rackley

There are those who turn justice into bitterness
and cast righteousness to the ground.
He who made the Pleiades and Orion,
who turns midnight into dawn
and darkens day into night,
who calls for the waters of the sea
and pours them out over the face of the land—
the Lord is his name.
With a blinding flash he destroys the stronghold
and brings the fortified city to ruin.

  • Amos 5:7-9

“The science of thermodynamics is rooted in the work of the German physicist Rudolf Clausius (1822-1888), who is credited with formulating the second law. There are three fundamental laws of thermodynamics: The first law states that the energy in a physical system can be neither created nor destroyed. This is known as the conservation of energy. The second law states that a closed system will tend toward increasing disorder, or entropy, until it reaches equilibrium. The third law states…

Freedom and Law

Clarifying Catholicism

The following was a college essay written by Maureen Francois. It has been edited and approved by Aidan McIntosh. If you have a Theology essay that you would like published that received a grade of an A- or higher, please be sure to contact us.

By Maureen Francois, Benedictine College

As human persons, we are called to live in freedom. Pope John Paul II, quoting the Second Vatican Council, defined freedom as an “outstanding manifestation of the divine image” (Gaudium et Spes, 17). We are made in the image of God, and to be truly free is to glorify God by mirroring Him through our lives. The purpose of law is to lead us to our proper actions and end, and by living in accordance with God’s law, we are made truly free. In the history of human thought, blinded by concupiscence, we have tried to redefine freedom…

What Is Faith Part 17

MBDevotional

For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1 John 5:4

We have seen in previous posts that faith is not just a doctrine or a set of theological beliefs that we are called to follow.



There are people who will ask, “what faith are you?” They are referring to our set of beliefs and do not understand what faith is.

Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Hebrews 10:38

Faith is not optional. It is required for the Christian life if our goal is to please God and live victoriously.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

ASH WEDNESDAY 2021: DISTRIBUTION OF ASHES IN TIME OF PANDEMIC – WORLD DAY OF THE SICK: POPE URGES “TRUST-BASED RELATIONSHIP” IN CARE FOR THE SICK

Joan's Rome

ASH WEDNESDAY 2021: DISTRIBUTION OF ASHES IN TIME OF PANDEMIC

From the Congregation for Divine Worship today:

Note on Ash Wednesday 2021: Distribution of ashes in time of pandemic

“The Priest says the prayer for blessing the ashes. He sprinkles the ashes with holy water, without saying anything. Then he addresses all those present and only once says the formula as it appears in the Roman Missal, applying it to all in general: ‘Repent, and believe in the Gospel,’ or ‘Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return’.

“The Priest then cleanses his hands, puts on a face mask and distributes the ashes to those who come to him or, if appropriate, he goes to those who are standing in their places. The Priest takes the ashes and sprinkles them on the head of each one without saying anything.

“From the Congregation for Divine Worship and the…
