The Virgin Mary Is Crying?

BELIEVERS FLOCK TO 'CRYING' VIRGIN MARY By JULIET WILLIAMS, Associated Press Writer Sun Nov 27, 3:23 AM ET SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Carrying rosary beads and cameras, the faithful have been coming in a steady stream to a church on the outskirts of Sacramento for a glimpse of what some are calling a miracle: A statue of the Virgin Mary they say has begun crying a substance that looks like blood. It was first noticed more than a week ago, when…

When the Pope Passes Away

I was really disturbed at the passing of Pope John Paul II. I was not disturbed at the passing itself, since it seemed that the man had only days to live. What I was disturbed by was the way people in the news and in our society were speaking about the deceased pope. Allow me to identify just a few of these disturbing instances. "Before we were praying for the pope. Now we will pray to the pope." Was Pope…

The Bible and The DaVinci Code

It is interesting to see how people are attempting to put forth their ideas recently. Rather than be required to have any factual evidence, people have begun to write fiction novels, but declare the material to be based on facts. Then, if there is a historical discrepancy or untruth, no one can argue with the material because it has been presented as fiction. The Left Behind series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins have certainly enjoyed such success with their…

Political Correctness Runs Amuck

I believe it is safe to say I have seen it all. But before I begin, I want to say that there is something to be said for speaking to others in a way that they would like to hear (Ephesians 4:29) and not speaking things that are obviously offensive or malicious. Unfortunately, what started as a reasonable effort to speak proper toward one another has turned into a campaign to revise history or strip the truth from our communication.…

Forgiven, But Still Paying the Consequences

Forgiveness has been greatly misconstrued in our society. More and more we see people who demand justice being told to "be forgiving." The scriptures are used to remind us that God was forgiving toward us. Therefore we should be forgiving others and not demand justice for a persons actions. The epitome of this problem is readily seen in the following article: Man Walks Free After Wife Forgives Murder Bid Wed Dec 1, 9:11 AM ET-Reuters DOUAI, France (Reuters) - A…

My Truth

Recently the Governor of New Jersey admitted that he is a homosexual. Well there is not much new in reporting that, as a great number have fallen prey to the "lusts of the flesh" in its many forms. But there was some new in how he accomplished his coming out party. He scheduled a press conference ostensibly to address some charges that were being leveled at him and also to address possible grand jury indictments, news of which had just…

Pacers and Pistons Fight the Fans

On November 19th we witnessed perhaps the lowest point in professional sports take place during a NBA game. If you are unaware of what took place, let me give you a quick run down. Ben Wallace of the Detroit Pistons was fouled in the process of shooting a layup by Ron Artest of the Indiana Pacers. There was nothing unusual about this foul with Artest simply not wanting to give away an easy basket to the opposition. Ben Wallace turned…

Goodbye, Scott Peterson

There has been quite a bit of discussion in the news surrounding the verdict of Scott Peterson. Mr. Peterson was charged with first-degree murder for the death of Laci Peterson and second-degree murder for the death of the unborn child Connor whom Laci was pregnant with at her death. I imagine that most of America had a similar reaction at the news of Scott Petersons conviction: joy in justice. I was happy to hear that the jury had found him…
