There are two things in this life that are spiritually unhealthy; the first thing is meddling in God’s business; the second is meddling in Satan’s business. The latter will frustrated you, while the former will possess you. The best place to be is minding the business that God has given you to mind – tending to the things that God has given you to tend to.
I actually had that discussion with Pope Benedict. It was — I had a wonderful meeting with him several months before he stepped down. It was like going back to theology class. And by the way, he wasn’t judgmental. He was open. I came away enlivened from the discussion.
Indeed, we all become a type of Mary and Joseph when we serve the least. This is the pinnacle of being the greatest in the Kingdom of God, when we serve God as the the Holy Family did.
For a Catholic Priest to affirm to the state, by his signature, that he has officiated a marriage ceremony, what he is saying is that he agrees and cooperates with the state’s definition of marriage. In this way, he is behaving the complete opposite of Kim Davis. He is certifying, by his signature, that the state’s definition of marriage is acceptable to the Church.
The most damning evidence of someone truly accepting Jesus Christ into their life is their response to the most important question that has ever been asked in the visible realm – ‘Who do you say that Jesus is?’
Indeed, throughout the Gospels we clearly see Jesus affirming the proper application of the Oral Torah; that is, where it does not contradict or attempt to supplant the Written Torah.

It is an uncompromising unchaste energy that demands more than we can ever give it. The names of these facilitators that work in conjunction to drive us against God are Pride, Advantage, and Disordered Good, which I will now elaborate upon further.
This video responds to the tendency of Black Democrats and Liberals to always accuse Black Republicans and Conservatives of hating themselves. They say that Black Conservatives and Republicans are filed with Self-Hate on the basis that they don’t support the Democratic Party, as if being Black means you are by nature required to vote Democrat; that being a Black Americans is somehow eternally tied to the party that has done everything they can to destroy Blacks in America.
PSA: Watch out for these Race Pimps out here trying to make you a victim; trying to turn you into a prostitute so that they can make a living off of you. Rise up! Wake up! No one is going to value your life if you don’t value it first.
I’m definitely open to other job descriptions that anyone can draw from in the Scriptures and the Council documents, but from how it looks from my list, Pope Francis just needs to have a Synod on the Family that doesn’t produce any heretical documents and he’s getting a raise!
Julie Nicholson and her husband Jim were lifelong Protestants. When I say they were ‘lifelong Protestants’ I mean that they at one point in time had tried almost every Protestant denomination at least once. Then that journey of futility finally ended when they discovered the Catholic Church. Listen to their testimony in this episode of ‘My Catholic Conversion’, and find out how they stumbled onto the only Church that Christ Jesus Established through His Apostles.
