I had a pleasant discussion with one of my readers on The Road To Concord this week. It was about the Catholic teaching that it is the true church of Christ, as established in Matthew 16:18-19. I was raised Catholic, so I know this is a very sensitive issue for many in the Catholic church. None the less, I would like to address the topic, and to offer some gentle correction to those who may believe the Catholic teaching. But first, I want to say that what follows is in no way meant to be read as a condemnation, or judgment or rebuke. I offer my words out of an agape love, and I hope hope that they will be received that way. Continue reading “A Sensitive Discussion About The Catholic Church”
I would like to introduce you to the only person I know left on radio who I will still listen to for wisdom and guidance. There may be others, but this man is the only person I know who is speaking truth without holding back. What’s more, I consider him to be my superior in many ways. He knows Scripture as well or better than I do. He knows as much or more history and philosophy than I do. And he is as rational and rooted in logic as I am. Frankly, he is the type of man I hope to be if and when I ever grow up. So, if you find value in my blogging, I ask you to take time to watch this video of Steve Deace talking about the events in D.C. this past Jan 6 (If you ever take my advice, do so now and watch this one — it is the best I’ve ever seen).
The rapture is one of the most hotly debated aspects of the Lord’s Prophetic Word. There are many different views of what it is and when it will happen, and I happen to find this fact to be deeply unsettling. If believers would simply learn to read the Scriptures and let the Lord’s Word testify for itself, there would be little room for debate. Why? Because the Scriptures are actually pretty clear as to when the rapture happens. The only reason there is debate is because too many believers keep trying to force the teachings of men on top of the Lord’s Word (see, ‘the man of lawlessness’). I know that this will be difficult for many, but, if you will try to erase everything you have learned about the rapture and give me a few minutes of your time, I think I can actually prove this to you. Will you do that? Will you give me your sincere, open-minded attention long enough for me to make my case? If so, then I invite you to keep reading. Otherwise, I humbly beg that we part in peace now, lest we cause an unnecessary rift in the Body of Christ.
I posted two posts on my blogs today that, to people who do not think, will appear to be hypocritical. Such people will read them and then tell me I am telling believers not to resist evil, but then, I turn and tell Patriots to use violence. Like I said: only those who do not think or understand will draw this conclusion. To those who do think, they will understand my two posts are in perfect alignment with each other. However, for anyone who might be caught somewhere in between, I offer this simple explanation.
I listen, or rather, used to listen to Glenn Beck, but I am having greater and greater difficulty listening to him. If you are a fan, I beg you to hear me out — please. As the Spiritual darkness grows, I find his apostate belief system creeping through his show is growing, as well. I guess it is the Holy Spirit within me, but I cannot listen to hims anymore. He is simply leading too many astray, and I do not want to risk being deceived by him, myself. Today, the issue is Beck’s worship of the Constitution and his continued calls for people to keep trusting our ‘system.’
