The voice said cry what shall I cry

October 31st, 2015

For some reason, some think that this padre is somehow involved in politics and has a political agenda. Nothing could be further from the truth! My mission is one of complete devotion to Jesus Christ. Involvement or association with the political process is in opposition to the teachings of God Almighty. Consider James 4:4, which […]

Riddles and puzzles to truth

October 30th, 2015

Yes, from what I hear the Bible is a book of riddles and puzzles for many. Many are unable to make the connections, when statements are indirect. Unable to see them as precise pictures, and then putting them in there connecting place on the puzzle table. Making the Bible understandable and a comprehensible book. One […]

In a world gone crazy

October 29th, 2015

“IF”-By Rudyard Kipling
IF you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too:
If you can wait and not be tired of by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies
Or being hated don’t give […]

Feuding Brothers

October 28th, 2015

Most American’s shrug their shoulders, and say nonsense, Muslims present no internal threat to America. Bingo! Muslims clear the table with another propaganda sweep. Most Muslims are not going to broadcast that they have smelt the sweet scent of 9/11, and have savored its smell with delight. With 9/11, they made their declaration of WAR […]

Try as u will u can’t win it’s supernatural

October 27th, 2015

If you want to understand the vicious cycle of world events, it’s necessary to see events from a biblical perspective.
When someone does something to infuriate the Muslim world in defense of Judaism or Christianity. It ignites the wrath of Muslims with deadly violence. So severe are their intentions that the innocent originator’s can unexpectedly find […]

Be a spoiler like the Galilean

October 26th, 2015

Stretching across eons of time and begging today for recognition. Arrives these heralded words. Tell the daughter of Zion! Behold your King comes unto you meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt, the foal of an ass, Matthew 21:5.
From that triumphant entry into Jerusalem would come freedom from the misery of oppressive bondage […]

A man of no character

October 25th, 2015

Jesus a notorious man of His time traveled to Jerusalem, and encountered the usual, notorious because he condemned the usual. But being a religious man, he makes His way to the temple to worship.

Benghazi lawlessness

October 23rd, 2015

Though we are not of the ancients their voices should be our voices. Said like this, “Oh, that you would rend the heavens! That you would come down! That the mountains might shake at your presence. As fire burns brushwood, as fire causes water to boil. To make Your name known to Your adversaries. That […]

Benghazi and its untold truth

October 22nd, 2015

Events swirl and people become confused because they can’t understand world reaction upon the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Killing the U.S Ambassador there and others. Allegedly because of a crude anti-Islamic video.
Why such outrage over an amateur made video whose producer was just an obscure person on the world stage. Without religious or political […]

O! what mercy is this

October 21st, 2015

They say to error is human. And so it is but seldom without consequences. And when, the price of those consequences are being paid. Because things aren’t going so well. Sometimes, like a falling ton of bricks an awareness is discovered. Dropping a curtain of shame because fault has crushed the offender. Bringing about a […]

I’ll cook you dead

October 20th, 2015

With death having many faces which might be creeping over the horizon faster than expected. If, there is any merit in the following satire whose source is unknown.
Birds are using potholders to pull worms out of the ground.
The trees are whistling for dogs.
Hot water now comes out of both facets in the sink.
You can make […]

When things aren’t going so well

October 19th, 2015

When things aren’t going so well, the possibility exist for different scenarios. But the following can’t be excluded, and this padre suspects that it comes into play more often than not.
Our sacred scriptures often portray a typology for events. It’s the study of figurative symbols, whereby one scriptures has applicable association with one or more […]

Empowered though shy

October 18th, 2015

Go forth and preach the gospel; if necessary use words, said the twelfth century Friar Saint Francis of Assisi. The most basic element of Christianity is the preaching of the gospel. Because of its life transforming power, causing some to wonder, how can a life be changed, if one is silent. Concluding, of course, one […]

Mysteriousness of God unveiled

October 17th, 2015

Jesus referred to burdens as gifts from God. Saying, “Come unto me, all who labor and are heavy laden. And I will give you rest. Take my yoke (way) upon you, and LEARN FROM ME; for I am meek and lowly in heart (humility a spiritual necessity) and you shall find rest unto your souls […]

Christendom goes parading

October 16th, 2015

It’s a shame, but a truism that Sunday’s represent a day when Christendom packs churches 2 billion strong engulfing about 1/3 of the worlds population. What a great potential for molding the world in the image of Jesus Christ.
But the great divide among Christendom renders the image building for Christ to a spectacle of scorn. […]

Presidential Hucksters

October 15th, 2015

A man once made a wooden statue of Hermes and took it to the market to sell. As no buyer came forward, he tried to attract one by shouting aloud that he was offering for sale a god, who would confer blessings on the bystander.
“If he is all you say he is, why do you […]

A tribute to government

The old priest lay dying in a hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people in the nations capital. He motioned for his nurse to come closer.

Factors of the Unknown

October 13th, 2015

“I returned, and saw, under the sun that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happened to them all,” Ecclesiastes 9:11.
It does seem that time and chance plays […]

A Street Car named Tongue

October 12th, 2015

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall shall eat the fruit thereof,” Proverbs 18:21. Put another way; what we say can preserve life or destroy it, so we must accept the consequences of our words.
Our bodies were designed by God to be of service to Him. […]
