By John Ruberry As we are in the Lenten season it is natural to look at Christ's life and teachings--even if you are not a person of faith or you are a believer of a non-Christian religion. In these reflections, however, what is often overlooked is that Jesus faced three temptations. I was reminded of … Continue reading We have our own Hero’s Journey to fulfill
One of the hardest things about doing the Lenten Reflections series is that it's not a "planned" series in that I had a set of ideas ready to roll.

I've documented my feelings about the medical system that has helped my son … Continue reading Divine intervention brought my child back to life. Of this, I have no doubt.
by baldilocks I had a lot of trouble concentrating today, as anyone who follows my Facebook and Twitter feeds already knows. I got up at around two this morning, having “slept” for a few hours—more of a fitful opening and closing of my eyes. The problem? I have been applying for jobs like crazy for … Continue reading Looking and Finding
Being a Christian in Hollywood can be difficult. There aren't a ton of movies being made today that fit in with a believing actor's moral compass. Moreover, there's a stigma attached to many actors who willingly profess their faith just as there's a stigma against conservatives. As such, the average Christian-themed movie is pretty poorly … Continue reading “The Case for Christ” is a high-quality movie in a genre known for rotten reviews

The majority of things that come out of Washington DC do not require our assistance. President Trump lays down an order, Congress passes a law, or some agency puts out a regulation and the citizenry does what it can to comply. It sounds Draconian but it's a system that works. Our participation in the republic … Continue reading Trump’s religious liberty path requires our support
Joseph: I forgot what I was supposed to tell him. Jules:Oh, well tell him he should on no account try to open that cage. Tell him because if he does try to and puts his hand inside of the cage to find out what's there, he's liable to be disagreeably surprised.[laughs] Tell him, well that … Continue reading Synod 15 “Do you not Understand?” , “Do you think…” and the Snake in the Pocket

Stacy McCain makes some excellent biblical points in this piece concerning a young lady who with some diabolic help has made some really bad choices Can you imagine the insane hatred inside this woman, that she would take a Bible — a gift from her own grandmother! — and make it into such a heinously abusive … Continue reading The Missing Admonition from Stacy’s Piece
Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not his own facts. Attributed to Daniel Patrick Moynihan Once you have made the World an end, and faith a means, you have almost won your man, and it makes very little difference what kind of worldly end he is pursuing. Provided that meetings, pamphlets, policies, movements, … Continue reading Pride, Definitely his favorite Sin
Only today I have found a passage in a Christian writer where he recommends his own version of Christianity on the ground that ‘only such a faith can outlast the death of old cultures and the birth of new civilisations’. You see the little rift? ‘Believe this, not because it’s true, but for some other … Continue reading The Religion of Feminism requires more faith than Christianity
All you then have to do is to keep out of his mind the question "If I, being what I am, can consider that I am in some sense a Christian, why should the different vices of those people in the next pew prove that their religion is mere hypocrisy and convention?"
