The Pope Takes a Postmodern Punch in the Nose by Islam The Pope Takes a Postmodern Punch in the Nose by Islam “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. For I have come to “set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; and “a man’s enemies will be those of his own household.’ He who loves father… Read more

Terrorists Attack…But We Save Lives “For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives but to save them.” (Luke 9:56 NKJV) Terrorists attack. That is the nature of a terrorist. They bring terror in their wake. Today is the fifth anniversary of one such attack. The attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania on September 11, 2001 changed the perspective of terrorism against Americans forever. On this day, almost… Read more

When Jesus Went on a Divinity Diet but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:7 NKJV) Divinity is a wonderful chocolate. It is rich and thick. I usually eat it around Christmas time. But after eating it, I have to go on a diet. Jesus Himself went on a divinity diet. This verse describes the fact that Jesus made a diet of His divinity and came to… Read more

  Kicking Hard Against God’s Will And when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in the Hebrew language, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ (Acts 26:14 ESV) According to Wiktionary, a goad is a long, pointed stick used to prod an animal forward. You can see the goad being used by the second man in the illustration above. Apparently, the goad… Read more

Eating a Depression Sandwich Can you imagine how Jesus felt before He went to the cross? Talk about dealing with pressure. He was literally sandwiched between a disciple and good friend who would not defend Him and another disciple who turned Him over to His death. Peter says that He would defend Him, but Jesus knew that Peter would turn from Him. Peter said to him, “Even though they all fall away, I will not.” And Jesus said to him,… Read more

The Hard and Soft Responsible Love of God What shall we say then? Is there injustice on God’s part? By no means! For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.” So then it depends not on human will or exertion, but on God, who has mercy. For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, “For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I might… Read more

Easter is Just the Beginning of God’s Love What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? (Romans 8:31-32 NKJV) Easter is the beginning of God handing out His love to you. When the grandchildren visit their grandparents during Christmas, Granddad would be waiting… Read more

What is Truth? Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” Pilate said to Him, “What is truth?” And when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews, and said to them,… Read more

Christ’s New Mandate of Love mandatum novum do vobis ut diligatis invicem sicut dilexi vos ut et vos diligatis invicem (John 13:34 Vulgate) I have given the scripture verse first in Latin. You will notice the first two words “mandatum novum”. These words mean new commandment. From the word Mandatum, we get an Old English word Maundy. The word maundy has a different meaning in modern English. It has come to symbolize the act of love that Christ gave to… Read more

Serving God Like Superman Now in these days when the disciples were increasing in number, a complaint by the Hellenists arose against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution. And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables. Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and… Read more
