  For example, I have religious reservations against oppression. But this is not because my religion says so. It is because my theology in both scripture and the natural world are consistent with the belief that, biblically and naturally, oppression is wrong.   Mark 12:31- love your neighbor as yourself. there is no commandment greater than these. 1 Corinthians 10:24- no one should seek there own good, but the good of others Philippians 2:3- do nothing out of selfish ambition... Read more

All of us who believe tend to use prayer in hard times. In this time we live in, fear is everywhere. Fear of Covid, fear of Covid Vaccinees. Fear of war and even fear of peace.

Pro-life means concern for the widow and the elderly. Shoving the elderly into a wholesale nursing home and moving on is not pro-life. Truly being pro life... Read more

  The biblical understanding of sin can be best understood looking at the context in which the words used to describe sin are used in the bible. The use of over 20 different words between the Old Testament and New Testament speak to the need for a multi-faceted view of sin. Very simply, sin is not simple. Many times, I have been told sin is simply wrong. But the Bible, from which we as Christians understand this concept does not... Read more

In my daily studies, I ran across the Jude of the Old Testament- Obidiah. Obidiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament. But like its New Testament predecessor- It is jammed full of theological treasure. But to understand that treasure one must look at the context of the writing. It is there we find an instance where God selects a prophet from the opposition to speak out against the opposition. Historical Context Obidiah is one of only three prophets... Read more

As we continue to journey through the 12 Apostles of Ireland, we find here in these three bravery. We find bravery in the face of the unknown, bravery in the face of danger and bravery in the face of oppression. As Christians we must have the courage to stand with our Ard Ri (High King) Jesus Christ in the face of all of these. These three saints from long ago, speak to us about this bravery for the love of... Read more
