    Praise the Lord

    As it is the job of Christians to tell the Good News and help bring back or welcome back the lost sheep, and in this case, the only Christian replies should be singing God’s praises and welcoming Corbin home.

    Pray for more conversions.

    Those of you posing as Christians who are poking need to check yourselves and grow a spiritual life. I am ashamed of your radical views, that you can’t hear the angels rejoicing over one lost soul that is found.

    Welcome home, Corbin. Even if you’re only on the path. The Prodigal Son has returned.

    @Servant
    I agree the Apostles were not equal to Jesus, I am saying this does not mean that Jesus is LESS THAN God, which is how I thought you tortured the verse.

    As for the other verses, I can’t help you to see the relevance or accept the historic interpretation that contradicts the Arian heresy. God Incarnate suffered pain and death to free us from our sins, because that’s how much God loves us. Through Baptism we can call him “Father” “Abba”, becoming children of God, a loving merciful (and just) Father.

    Life changes when you know you are loved that much.

    Give the Bible a read through Trinitarian eyes in which the Crucifixion of Jesus actually happened and maybe, just maybe, you will see the Light.

    Mt 2: 11 and going into the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, and they fell down and worshiped him. Then, opening their treasures, they offered him gifts, gold and frankincense and myrrh.

    “And as they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, ‘Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.’ And he knelt down and cried with a loud voice, ‘Lord, do not hold this sin against them.’ And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7:59-60

    “Whatever you ask in my name, I WILL DO IT, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I WILL DO IT.” John 14:13-14

    “And whenever the unclean spirits beheld him, they fell down before him and cried out, ‘You are the Son of God.’” Mark 3:11

    “Then the mother of the sons of Zeb’edee came up to him, with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something.” Matthew 20:20

    Jn 4:22-23 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and TRUTH, for such the Father seeks to worship him. (Jesus is the Way the TRUTH and the Life.)

    As for “not greater than”
    a) mathematical language. Doesn’t have to mean less than, could mean equal to.
    b) how can one be greater than onesself?

    I think what Gita is getting at is what we have all noticed. His searching, grasping, and the returning to the drawing table. He is pulled here, then there, then discovers the latest real reason he’s here, then that goes away, then a new direction. You get the point. He’s never satisfied because the only Peace and Satisfaction that one can have come from the Triune God. Through Jesus Christ, True God and True Man, Son of the Father, in union with the Holy Spirit. The healing and strength that come from receiving the Sacraments are supernatural. When one is back in the in the Barque of Peter, they have an anchor, a rudder, a sail, a wind, spiritually speaking. No matter the storms. The rest of life becomes more clear. No more splashing around, being tossed to and fro. There is no doubt God has blessed Glenn with talents and drive but they are to be used for God’s will, which would not be clear until certain conditions are met. So far they haven’t been, and we are left with quixotic behavior and emotions.

    I read Gita’s comment as being about a spiritual journey and abandoning trust to God in His Church, not as being a comment on television success. I say that because Gita knows Catholic teaching, which isn’t “prosperity gospel”

    And, brother, let’s just pray for unity, however God wills it. We must accept His will whatever form reunification takes; laymen aren’t going to solve it by fighting. Just pray.

    jb50, you came through again with a great post.
    and I can back you up that you are no Papal apologist, you just understand Christianity.

  • January 23, 2015 at 4:25pm

    jb50,
    you nailed it.

    There are enough brilliant Catholics who know not only economics but the revealed Truth from God for the Pope to consult about Capitalism from the Christian perspective.

    However, on a person-to-person exchange, I think the Pope loves everyone regardless of religion and would embrace him and bless him. He would see Glenn’s Catholic roots as a reason to evangelize him and bring the lost sheep back into the fold. Possibly.

    It’s adorable how often anti-Catholics unintentionally reveal that deep down they know the Catholic Church is true.

    First, they desperately cling to any laughable story they hear that makes them feel safe in their continued protest of the Church, the sheer fear-factor of these stories justifying (in their own minds) the refusal to look into the truth of the story or the Church.

    Second, and cutest, they EXPECT everything a Catholic says or does to be perfect.

    In an ironic twist, the Church herself doesn’t expect that. She teaches we are all sinners and that in the Church there will be wheat and tares, and all that Biblical stuff.

    Thanks for the compliment, Standing.

    P.S. Ditto what by faith said.

    God bless.

    Glory be to the Father
    and to the Son
    and to the Holy Spirit
    as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
    world without end.
    Amen

    Blessed be God.
    Blessed be His Holy Name.
    Blessed be Jesus Christ, True God and True Man.
    Blessed be the Name of Jesus.
    Blessed be His Most Sacred Heart.
    Blessed be His Most Precious Blood.
    Blessed be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.
    Blessed be the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete.
    Blessed be the Name of Mary, Virgin and Mother
    Blessed be Saint Joseph, her most Chaste Spouse.
    Blessed be God in His Angels and in His Saints.

    Saint Michael the Archangel,
    defend us in battle.
    Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
    and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
    by the Divine Power of God -
    cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits,
    who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.

    Amen.

    Zip,
    Your arguments don’t make any sense. You go to great lengths to denigrate the Mother of our Lord. You traveled across the world to stand near where the Ark once stood so you must think it is important. If you don’t see the connection to our Lady, then you understand neither scriptures nor salvation history.

    When you desire entrance into Jesus’ home he will see what you said about His mother. Jesus warns us about hate in your heart and likens it to murder. What are you doing by hating His mother whom He honors perfectly? It’s not a joke.

    I will pray again for you tonight. As a warning, most Mary-loathers who convert say it was Mary who brought them in, God’s joke on them.

    You also need to stop hating Catholics. I need to stop taking your hate bait.

    Holy Spirit, change this heart. Amen.

  • [39] January 22, 2015 at 7:05pm

    Amen! It surely should be.

    We need to pray for our fellow Christians who range from a “look the other way” stance to a “support it” stance. Too many denominations have lost their way on this issue.

  • [22] January 22, 2015 at 7:02pm

    If every baby killed by his or her mother could speak, you would be deaf from the sound of pleading for their own “individual rights.”

    Zip,
    So, Rahab good. The woman God hand-picked to bear the Savior, nothing special?
    Nice to know you found one woman less repulsive to you than the Mother of God.

    It sounds like instead of answering you tried to anticipate my retort. So let’s be clear, could God have saved man through any other means than sending Jesus through Mary?

    You say yes, because he ‘could have’ picked another woman?

    But, He didn’t. He picked her, the woman “full of grace.” The woman prepared to give God Incarnate His flesh. Jesus was fully God and fully man. The human DNA? Mary’s. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you contemplate that.

    Does God think Mary was/is important? He had chosen her in Genesis already.

    Go tell your wife she’s just a sack of sinful uterine tissue, no more important to your child’s life than a streetwalker. If you don’t have a wife, tell your mother that.

    Next, remember the Commandment to Honor your Mother.
    Did Jesus sin? Or keep the Commandments perfectly? Do we FOLLOW Christ or just believe in Him? To follow Him means we emulate Him and so we must, to FOLLOW Him, honor His Mother.

    As for intercessory prayer, the Bible commands it. Saints and angels offer prayers for us. They hear our prayers, a cloud of witnesses surrounds us. If you believe in a heresy called soul sleep, you won’t understand because you think dead people are dead, but Catholics believe in the God of the LIVING.


    What about the Ark of the Covenant? A stupid box? Nothing special at all in God’s plan?

    When are we going to get prostate rights? (religious tyranny is stopping those.)

    Liver rights? (free alcohol on demand)

    Vascular system rights? (why can’t I bleed all over the basketball court?)

    Endocrine system rights? (cortisol wrecks adrenals, I want the right to quit my stressful job and be provided for.)

  • [2] January 22, 2015 at 2:05pm

    If you truly cared about women, you would care that abortion has killed over 27,000,000 American females in just 42 years.

    Cobalt, you should get out a clock with a second hand. Every time the second hand gets to the 6, a baby GIRL in America has been murdered by her own mother. # War on women

    Every time the second hand gets to the 12, a baby boy in America has been murdered by his own mother.

    Do this as long as you can without vomiting.

    700 babies have been killed in America since this morning….so far. Oh, 701 now.

    702 now…

    Why do you think this is a Conservative OR Christian issue? Are you saying nonChristians want death and murder, as long as their own mothers didn’t, right?

    EWTN is awesome and Zach, I thank you for posting this live feed.
    Thanks to the Blaze for making it a special news alert.
    Is there an issue more fundamental to a society than its respect for life itself. Whether we see all humans as humans, no matter the age, location or level of productivity and independence?

  • [1] January 22, 2015 at 8:01am

    Zip,
    “…nowhere is Scripture does it show even a glimmer of a prayer to anyone other than God being acceptable. Nowhere. Yet catholics teach it.”

    a) Scripture doesn’t have to. (but it does) Scripture grew out of the Church which already practiced intercessory prayer. Can you think of times in the NT where people asked the Apostles to heal them? They are asking for God’s healing through their intercession. Same thing Catholics do with members of the Church who are in God’s presence. The true Church is not limited to this earthly realm. Surely you know that from Scripture.

    b) You ask your pal questions and for help, that is prayer, to plea, to ask. Do you worship your pal? Of course not.


    The Holy Spirit is God. So, if we can pray to God, why do you refuse to pray to the Holy Spirit. You pray to Jesus and the Father but not the Holy Spirit? Ahh, so you aren’t Trinitarian either which would explain alot as well.

    ____
    Did Moses have a special role? Did Aaron? Did David? Did Soloman? Did John the Baptist? Did Peter? Did Paul? Just the men, right? Not Mary or the other Marys. No girls allowed.

    That reminds me, what do you know about the Ark of the Covenant? Do you speak disparagingly about it? Let us know if the Church should talk about it.
    _________
    Finally,

    Zip, this is the third time to ask. Why can’t you answer?

    Could God have saved us without sending Jesus through Mary?

  • [2] January 21, 2015 at 2:28pm

    zip, you sure do judge alot of souls. sigh.

  • [1] January 21, 2015 at 2:24pm

    Louise,
    What does a prison sentence have with to do with your forgiving others?

    The state of your heart and soul are independent of any temporal or punitive actions taken against criminals, and even independent of the contrition they may or may not feel.

    Christian charity, please pray on it.
