othing can cripple the use of the intellect, reason, and logic faster than images and words that stir the imagination of our emotions. For evidence of this, one need not … Continue reading
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.
The Ferguson riots are the first series of protests and demonstrations by Blacks in America that have not been organized and led by Black Protestant clergy.
Because Protestantism offers either a neutered liturgy or none at all it has spiritually harmed countless people by making them slaves to their senses and emotions.
Avoid Sedevacantism. I know it's tempting. I know the hour we are living in. I understand why many Catholics are feeling like something is wrong; something in the air doesn't smell right. I feel it myself and I think that is a legitimate sense, but the proper response is not heresy or abandoning the Church.
For this installment, I'm going to opine about the Cycle of Insanity that Protestantism is stuck in. The working definition of insanity that I'm using here is 'doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results'.
For this installment we are going to return to Martin Luther and pick up John Calvin along to way to create a narrative about something very timely. How did Martin Luther and John Calvin pave the way for the redefinition of marriage?
Therefore, let us not be like Eve and allow self-pride to lead us into justifying our way into disobedience to God. Go and find the true Church of Christ and discover the household of God that He created just for you, because He loves you that much! Do not reject this gift of His one day longer.
As we approach the five hundred year anniversary of the Protestant reformulation on October 31, 2017, it is good to look back examine how that all worked out for them. For, how are we to judge the fruit of tree over the last 500 years unless we first examine its seed? Therefore, let us start from the beginning and blink our eyes at the 33 Most Ridiculous things that Martin Luther, the illustrious Father of Protestantism and the Bible-Only (sola-scriptura) movement, said.
As Christians we need to be on guard against the temptation of the world to get us to accommodate sin and immoral behavior. Inasmuch as everyone should be loved and accepted, we cannot love or accept everything everyone does.
Despite common misconceptions - true love actually does cares enough to care. True loves does judge. True love is not apathetic. True love is not timid. True love does not allow sin to triumph over its object of love without a fight. True love doesn't walk past a person dying without trying to aid them. True love desires you to be in Heaven - not in Hell - and will sacrifice anything to get you there. Therefore, if you have people in your life who are not judging you, but are just letting you commit all types of immorality without telling you are wrong, and not encouraging you to do better, then what you have in your life are people who do not truly love you, or who do not know how to love you as they ought.
Given the vast experience I'velearned in dating non-Catholics over the years, I thought I might pass along to other daters what is Non-Negotiable for Catholics when considering a mixed marriage. These are questions that you need to ask within the first 40 days of dating.
This article is going to offer four very clear reasons why artificial birth control (e.g. condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps, intrauterine devices, oral contraceptives, patches, sterilizations, spermicide (only), sponge, and injections) is always immoral and unnecessary. As with my other articles, I will build my argument upon the natural law, sacred Scripture, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
But in light of this wave of city health departments across the country trivializing sex for kids, what I am going to do here is focus my argument solely on the use of male condoms and demonstrate why they are always immoral and how they objectify women.
Like so many men, for many years I too found it nearly impossible to be faithful to one woman. Inasmuch as much as I knew, intellectually, and out of a basic sense of reciprocity, that I should be faithful - I simply found the practice impossible.
This article is going to point out the clear reasons why masturbation, when performed with the purpose providing an artificial form of sexual pleasure is always morally evil. I will then offer three helpful ways to combat this very addictive behavior. I will build my arguments against masturbation upon the Natural Law and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
In this modern culture and age of dating solely for the purposes finding someone to ‘hook-up’ with on a regular basis, the idea of courtship, let alone chaste courtship, is an odd if not completely unknown concept. Therefore, it would best serve the purposes of this article if I begin it by drawing the bright contrasts between hooking up, dating, courtship, and chaste courtship.
Gossiping or tale-bearing is sharing personal information about other people to people who would not have not otherwise known. Gossiping about people is quite different than lying about them, inasmuch as these two actions oftentimes accompany each other to Hell.
The principles of the Masonic order plots against the Church because it teaches an alternative truth, but because truth is not a thing, but rather a person - Christ Jesus (Cf. Jn. 14:6), essentially, Freemasonry teaches another Gospel (not that there is another) (Cf. Gal. 1:6), but this is what it does. Sacred Scripture is clear in saying that the word of God is truth (Cf. Jn. 17:6) and the truth is what sets us free (Cf. Jn. 8:31-32). This is the mission of the Church - to guide us along the path to dwell in truth and freedom, but Freemasonry acts against that, by perpetuating a system of alternative truths and self-determinism.
This article is going to offer three very clear reasons why the death penalty is always unnecessary at this stage in human civilization. The basis of my argument will be grounded in sacred Scripture, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and reason.
Marriage and conjugal love belong together and they were made for each other from the very beginning. There are so many great benefits that come by the way of waiting for marriage to have sex. The first of which were explored in this article - to wait for marriage to have sex is natural and it fulfills God's purpose for you and your body. Moreover, sex before and outside of marriage always clouds feelings, it makes courtship inauthentic and artificial.
