There's been increasing discussion over the differences between Islam and Christianity.  Are they basically the same, just different religions?  Do they worship the same God?  Are their basic tenets the same with just a few variables? I see major differences between the Islamic faith and the Christian Faith.     How tolerant is the Muslim faith?  How does it compare to the tolerance of the Christian faith? Are they both equally intolerant of anyt...

Here we go again. A certain self-styled Protestant whom I’ll call “Deleter” thinks it’s OK to quote Scripture, link it to current events and explain it from her Protestant theological pov, take swipes against Catholics, the Catholic Church and Catholicism while at the same time insists upon no rebuttal from me by deleting my comments. The comments that led up to the deletion of my comments are as follows: Deleter posted: No, Lula the gospels don't preach something...

On another Blog, a JUser asked:  Now if you would, tell me what you think "grace" is. Yes, I’m glad to tell you what I know about Grace. There are two kinds: supernatural or sanctifying Grace and actual grace, but first some background. God is the author of the Salvation plan and the first Source of our holiness through which our souls are sanctified. God created us to be with Him in eternal life.  Scripture has it that nothing defiled will enter into heaven and in order...
Christ Enters Rest  Why Christians Observe the Lord’s Day By Robert Clanton Copyright   This purpose of this article is to explain the chronological and Christological process that gave The Lord’s Day the prominence in Christian worship.    Among the Sabbatarian groups such as the Adventist and the many splinter groups of the former Herbert and Garner Ted Armstrong followers, there is a general condemnation of the non-Sabbatarians as being bre...

A call to Repentance!!! Proverbs 28:13 (NKJV) "He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy." It is not enough to confess our sins to God, we must also forsake the sinful behavior and mindset. I know this is hard. Sinful mindsets and completly forsaking our sins-not just confessing them and asking forforgiveness is hard. I think it starts with a daily process of renewing our mind and changing our way of thinking. I beleive Go...
We just got back from a National Preaching Conference in Orlando and my head is still swimming with all the great preaching we heard from some of the greatest preachers of our day.  We spent the weekend with the likes of R.C. Sproul Sr. & Jr., John MacArthur, Allistair Begg among others.   They said there were more than 4,000 in attendance. The subject matter was of a great variety answering some of the most perplexing questions concerning philosophical and theological...
Eve led her husband into rebellion against God, and he allowed her to do so.  So now what?  Well we do know the first thing they did was hide.  From each other and then from God.  They sewed themselves clothing the best they could from fig leaves.  And they waited.  Genesis 3:8-11 says: "And they heard the voice of God walking in the garden in the cool of the day and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the Lord among the trees of the gar...
Everything changed in the Garden of Eden after the tempation.  It started out so well but ended so awful.  All because Eve entered into a discussion with a serpent showing us that entering into a discussion with the devil is always a bad idea.  Genesis 3:1 says: "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord god had made.  And he said to the woman, 'has God said you shall not eat of every tree of the garden'?"  So why was it a ...

Albert Einstein once said, "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results". Epperson v. Arkansas, 393 U.S. 97 (1968), was a United States Supreme Court case that invalidated an Arkansas statute that prohibited the teaching of human evolution in the public schools. The Court held that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits a state from requiring, in the words of the majority opinion, "that teaching and learning m...
Last weekend I was asked to speak at a woman's luncheon for Mother's Day.  When I inquired as to what they wished for a subject matter they left it up to me.  So I thought about it for a day or so.  Then I came up with Eve.  Why not?  Afterall she was the mother of us all.  Since I've never heard a Mother's Day Sermon on this topic I decided I'd tackle it myself.    Woman are important to God and He makes that very clear thru His written Word. ...

It's funny, I understand my religious beliefs pretty well yet I still tend to expect certain things as if this is how it's normally done when I know it would be a miracle for it to actually happen this way. For the past 15 years of my life I have done nothing but screw up my entire life (and that of my family in the process). I failed to finish college, I have failed to maintain a decent credit rating and worst of all I have failed to give my family a decent life where we don't have to spend ...
I want to tell you a true story.  It's ancient history now but it's a beautiful story of God's love for all mankind.  God looked down, saw a mess and knew something had to be done to reconcile us to Him saving us from what would be a terrible end otherwise.  It all starts with a man called Abraham.  Years after the events of the original story James wrote this:  "Was not Abraham, our father, justified by works when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar?...

  The End of the Old Mosaic Sacrifices According to the Prophecy of Malachias There is a discussion on my other blog, A view from the Cross, in which I made the claim that the Old Mosaic Temple sacrifices as ordained by God to Moses are done....done for good. Almighty God was making it known that at moment of Christ's crucifixion when the Temple Veil was rent from top to bottom, that the rites and ceremonies of the Old Law were to be abolished for good in 70AD. To which Poster L...

First let me say that although I was raised as a Catholic, I personally have no issues with people believing in any religion of their choice. If they want to praise Allah, so be it; if they believe in Jesus as the son of God, that's fine by me; if they want to worship pigs, be my guest. I am no one to interfere with your religious beliefs, that's how I feel about that and I would hope others respect my choices the same way. Of course that is not likely but anyways. However, there are some peo...

This article is about the situation in Canada, but it's really the same in the US and especially in Europe. The scholar interviewed, Mr Khaleel Mohammed, is a traditional Muslim (i.e. he actually reads the Quran and follows it). Foreign-born imams who don't speak English, and who have little understanding of the Canadian way of life, are a threat to Canada, says a leading Muslim scholar "They should be familiar with the Canadian outlook and understand the cultural values of Canada," said K...
