Water into Wine

TURNING WATER INTO WINE

The first miracle that Jesus did was turning water into wine John 2:1-11. When the mother of Jesus requested that He turn water into wine, Jesus refused and stated that “My time has not yet come”. Did Jesus abandon the will of His Heavenly Father? In...

Most eligible bachelor, Jesus

Most eligible bachelor, Jesus

In the 21st Century U.S.A., the tabloids and Hollywood’s high society will portray the most eligible bachelors as men who are charming, handsome, muscular, quick-witted, have name recognition, fame and a whole lot of “Show me the money” (for later, alimony and child-support payments) L.O.L.

My Choices In Life

Nothing I can do or say

Will make Gods' love go away

 

Even when I do what I should

God doesn't love me more because I'm good

 

I try to live life and experience contentment

I reach out to others and receive their resentment

 

The pain I endured has stayed with me

I...

Mary co-edeemer with Jesus?

Does the virgin birth of Jesus mean that Mary is co-redeemer (co-Redemptrix) with Jesus in our salvation?

Some Catholics would embrace this theological viewpoint while few Protestants would concur with that statement. Since most Catholics AND Protestants agree that Jesus would have a sin nature if Joseph were the father...

Was Jesus allowed to marry?

Jesus: Son of God, husband, and father?

Most Christians would be appalled if you suggest that Jesus could have gotten married and had a child or children. But if you asked those same Christians, “Do you think Jesus would have been a Perfect husband and father if He was allowed...

Jesus, Facts & Fiction Blended

My concern is that the factual truths about Jesus have fictional pagan mythology roots woven into the fabric of Christianity. I could say good things about you, and say you graduated from Harvard and you have been married for 10 years and have 3 children. If that statement is a...

Stealing God’s Glory

I heard an actor say that he doesn't like to work with children or animals, simply because they can "Steal the show" from him; not because they are gifted thespians (not the animals--haha), but because they now are considered equal to or more important than the star of the show.

Christians Word of God

Christians' varied interpretation of the Word of God

Most evangelical Christians embrace the idea that their denominational Bible is inerrant, infallible and the “Perfect” Word of God. My assertion is that there is nothing perfect in this fallen, sinful world, especially language. Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, Spanish, and English, etc. all...

Changes in Christianity

My response to someone named Rebecca:

Thanks for your reply; and for adding “God bless you”.

You made a general statement "Stick to what it says in the bible”. Whose Bible? Mormon, Jehovah Witness, King James, Catholic or Islam Bible, etc. (they “All” have traditions of men added to them).

Freedom from sexual pressure

For singles: Freedom from sexual pressure

I have always thought that it was the religious faith that we embrace that motivates all of us to be sexually and morally pure in our state of mind and body. We can think that it is “A still small voice” of God that...

Sex education in our schools

Everyone who is responsible for teaching sex education has been emotionally traumatized by their own past experiences by well-meaning parents, religious leaders, and teachers in the public, private or religious schools, to such an extent that they; either promote an "Amoral lifestyle” or they embrace the "Total abstinence" concept taught...

Serving God

When "God" calls someone to celibacy, they are strengthened by the power of the Holy Spirit and they have a holy calling (hopefully a lifelong commitment); and if they sin, they confess their sin before God and they are cleansed.

I see no problem with a priest, nun or any...

Celibacy

Share this letter with all Christians, Protestant, and Catholic.

God didn't design celibacy to be a permanent state of being for any Christian. Celibacy starts from childhood (pre-puberty sexual awareness) and extends into your adult life. From the start of puberty until marriage all humans feel they are emotionally and...
