John’s Use of Genesis

John used Genesis to show that the Son of God, made flesh in the Incarnation, was at the beginning of Creation and through him all things were created. Jesus is the Logos: the reason for being and the meaning of life.

Breaking Bread in Our Homes… Passover 2020

Breaking Bread in Our Homes… Passover 2020

We are in a season where we are separated and have to have communion with our families in our homes, which is like the time the Hebrews were hiding in their homes during Passover, as the last plague in Eqypt took the first born children of the Eqyptians.

The Gospel of Suffering

The Gospel of Suffering

The problem with the emphasis on prosperity is that it is unbalanced when there is no recognition of the role of suffering in God’s plan for our lives.

Transgenderism is a Religion and its Enforcement Violates the First Amendment.

Transgenderism is a belief that is not upheld by science. A person claims to be transgender by identification, which is an mental or emotional attachment to an idea. The person who claims to be a female, but is in fact a male, is denying the scientific fact of biology, genetics and DNA. It is therefore a religious belief, whose enforcement by the state violates the First Amendment’s second clause by establishing a religion.

Being Made Righteous by God

We have been cleansed by the Gift of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. In God’s eyes, is as if we have never sinned because of the blood of Jesus.

Boomer Replies to #OkBoomer

I hear “Ok Boomer” is a dismissive insult to ideas or views that a younger generation does not want to hear, address, respect or debate. The old term for that was “whateverrrrr” So, I thought, what could a baby boomer (hence the term “boomer”) say to someone of that mindset. And I thought of two. Please feel free to add your own.
