Toward a better understanding of the comparatively high prostate cancer incidence rates in Utah. (1/5)

BACKGROUND: This study assesses whether comparatively high prostate cancer incidence rates among white men in Utah represent higher rates among members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormons), who comprise about 70% of the state's male population, and considers the potential influence screening has on these rates. METHODS: Analyses are based on 14,693 histologically confirmed invasive prostate cancer cases among men aged 50 years and older identified through the Utah Cancer Registry between 1985 and 1999. Cancer records were linked to LDS Church membership records to determine LDS status. Poisson regression was used to derive rate ratios of LDS to nonLDS prostate cancer incidence, adjusted for age, disease stage, calendar time, and incidental detection. RESULTS: LDS men had a 31% (95% confidence interval, 26%-36%) higher incidence rate of prostate cancer than nonLDS men during the study period. Rates were consistently higher among LDS men over time (118% in 1985-88, 20% in 1989-92, 15% in 1993-1996, and 13% in 1997-99); age (13% in ages 50-59, 48% in ages 60-69, 28% in ages 70-79, and 16% in ages 80 and older); and stage (36% in local/regional and 17% in unstaged). An age- and stage-shift was observed for both LDS and nonLDS men, although more pronounced among LDS men. CONCLUSIONS: Comparatively high prostate cancer incidence rates among LDS men in Utah are explained, at least in part, by more aggressive screening among these men.  (+info)

Female breast cancer incidence and survival in Utah according to religious preference, 1985-1999. (2/5)

BACKGROUND: Female breast cancer incidence rates in Utah are among the lowest in the U.S. The influence of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint (LDS or Mormon) religion on these rates, as well as on disease-specific survival, will be explored for individuals diagnosed with breast cancer in Utah from 1985 through 1999. METHODS: Population-based records for incident female breast cancer patients were linked with membership records from the LDS Church to determine religious affiliation and, for LDS Church members, level of religiosity. Incidence rates were age-adjusted to the 2000 U.S. standard population using the direct method. Cox proportional hazards model was used to compare survival among religiously active LDS, less religiously active LDS, and non-LDS with simultaneous adjustment for prognostic factors. RESULTS: Age-adjusted breast cancer incidence rates were consistently lower for LDS than non-LDS in Utah from 1985 through 1999. Rates were lower among LDS compared with non-LDS across the age span. In 1995-99, the age-adjusted incidence rates were 107.6 (95% CI: 103.9 - 111.3) for LDS women and 130.5 (123.2 - 137.9) for non-LDS women. If non-LDS women in Utah had the same breast cancer risk profile as LDS women, an estimated 214 (4.8%) fewer malignant breast cancer cases would have occurred during 1995-99. With religiously active LDS serving as the reference group, the adjusted death hazard ratio for religiously less active LDS was 1.09 (0.94 - 1.27) and for non-LDS was 0.86 (0.75 - 0.98). CONCLUSION: In Utah, LDS lifestyle is associated with lower incidence rates of female breast cancer. However, LDS experience poorer survivability from breast cancer than their non-LDS counterparts. Parity and breastfeeding, while protective factors against breast cancer, may contribute to poorer prognosis of female breast cancer in LDS women.  (+info)

Church attendance and new episodes of major depression in a community study of older adults: the Cache County Study. (4/5)

We examined the relation between church attendance, membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), and major depressive episode, in a population-based study of aging and dementia in Cache County, Utah. Participants included 2,989 nondemented individuals aged between 65 and 100 years who were interviewed initially in 1995 to 1996 and again in 1998 to 1999. LDS church members reported twice the rate of major depression that non-LDS members did (odds ratio = 2.56, 95% confidence interval = 1.07-6.08). Individuals attending church weekly or more often had a significantly lower risk for major depression. After controlling for demographic and health variables and the strongest predictor of future episodes of depression, a prior depression history, we found that church attendance more often than weekly remained a significant protectant (odds ratio = 0.51, 95% confidence interval = 0.28-0.92). Results suggest that there may be a threshold of church attendance that is necessary for a person to garner long-term protection from depression. We discuss sociological factors relevant to LDS culture.  (+info)

Christ (a Greek word) and Messiah (a Hebrew word) mean "the anointed." Jesus Christ is the Firstborn of the Father in the spirit (Heb. 1:6; D&C 93:21). He is the Only Begotten of the Father in the flesh (John 1:14; 3:16). He is Jehovah (D&C 110:3-4) and was foreordained to His great calling before the creation of the world. Under the direction of the Father, Jesus created the earth and everything on it (John 1:3, 14; Moses 1:31-33). He was born to Mary at Bethlehem, lived a sinless life, and made a perfect atonement for the sins of all mankind by the shedding of His blood and giving His life on the cross (Matt. 2:1; 1 Ne. 11:13-33; 3 Ne. 27:13-16; D&C 76:40-42). He rose from the dead, thus assuring the eventual resurrection of all mankind. Through Jesus Atonement and Resurrection, those who repent of their sins and obey Gods commandments can live eternally with Jesus and the Father (2 Ne. 9:10-12; 21-22; D&C 76:50-53, 62).. Jesus Christ is the greatest being to be born on this earth. His life ...

So really, we are all Christ, we just havent realized it yet like Jesus did. This idea draws upon Hinduism, Buddhism, and theosophy to give us an esoteric understanding of the ministry of Jesus. Here are some quotes by New Age teachers on the idea that we are all Christ:. "Is he (Jesus) the Christ? O yes, along with you." - A Course in Miracles, manual, p.87". "Accepting the Christ" is merely a shift in self-perception" - Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections On The Principles Of A Course In Miracles, p. 32. "Many have been Christed, not just Jesus of Nazareth. You can be Christed too." Neale Donald Walsch in Conversations with God, book 2, pg. 22. "You are, quite literally, the Word of God, made flesh" - FWG, pg. 395. This idea is tickling to the ears and may be attractive to a layperson seeking spiritual insight. But as it turns out, this idea is extremely easy to be proven false from the words of Jesus himself. Lets take a look at some reasons why Christ Consciousness is not ...

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or LDS Church, is the largest denomination in the broader "Latter-day Saint (or Mormon) movement," a restorationist Christian movement that sprang from the prophetic claims of Joseph Smith (1805-44) and coincided with the Second Great Awakening in the United States. Today, the movement includes the LDS Church, the Community of Christ, and a number of other smaller groups. Like many other restorationist groups, the Latter-day Saints believed that existing Christianity had strayed so far from Jesus teachings that they required a complete renewal rather than simple reform. While many restorationist movements (like the Stone-Campbell movement or the Puritans) were content to model as closely as possible the religion of the New Testament, Joseph Smith taught that the Bible itself had been corrupted.. Joseph Smith organized his church (originally called the Church of Christ) in 1830 in upstate New York, where he had been experiencing divine ...
Jumping Jesus! Thanks to Theatre Live!, its fair to say that Elle and I have walked all stations of the musical cross. Last year at this time, we went to see Fiddler on the Roof, which lead to our love-hate relationship with the mighty Orpheum and the childhood trauma evoked for me by its big production musicals. In order to recover, we hit mainly fringe productions for the summer. A year later and all the more enlightened, we were once again called to prayer by the Orpheums "Broadway in Minneapolis" kick off series with my all-time favorite "Jesus Christ Superstar". Its good to be back on the red carpet.. In preparation for seeing Jesus (his fourth coming for me), Id been listening to the soundtrack repeatedly. The musical montage does the same thing to me as a hit of Ecstasy does to twenty-something gay men at Mardi Gras. In fact, in the heat of a Weber-induced passion, I often wonder to myself if I am a gay man.. Elle: Stop it right now, Rox. As usual, its you, you, you. What about the ...
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) — Another member of the Navajo Nation is suing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, saying he was abused in a now-defunct program that sent children into foster care for the school year. Unlike similar lawsuits, the complaint filed Tuesday in tribal court doesnt seek changes to the policies of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It seeks unspecified monetary damages for decades of alleged emotional harm, including attempted suicide. This poor guy.

Some never will know! This book is for them as well. Madison Church of Christ was a 60 year old church. At one time it was one of the largest churches in the US, and the largest Church of Christ. It thrived for many years on the vision of its elders and those of its ministers. Those visions undoubtably came from the the inspired word of Jesus Christ. At sometime in the last 10 years there was a deliberate plan by a majority of the elders to take the Madison Church of Christ into a more worldly realm. They used secrecy, covert planning, and outside sources to scheme and to change the format and direction of the Madison Church of Christ. The Elders knew that the membership would never approve such a plan. Using the tools of the "Community Church Movement"(consultants, books, seminars, meetings,planters,seeders) they slowly started initiating change so it was never noticed by the members until it was too late..... At the heart of the plan was the fact that old members were going to be driven off ...

Introduction. R.S. Coursework- Baptism AO1 Baptism is the ceremony in which a person becomes a member of the Family of Jesus Christ and God; so it is seen as a sacrament. A Sacrament is an outward sign of the giving of Gods grace and salvation to a person. Baptism is one of the seven sacraments in some Christian Churches. Many Christian traditions believe in Baptism however only The Salvation Army and The Society of Friends (Quakers) do not accept Baptism or the Eucharist as they feel there is no need to show any outward signs of personal beliefs. I will now describe an Infant Baptismal ceremony which is from the Roman Catholic tradition. Other Churches that practise this type of Baptism are: The Anglican Church, Methodist, Orthodox and United Reform Church. The Baptism ceremony takes place at a Church at a font during a service of Holy Communion and begins with the Priest waiting at the door to welcome the Parents, Godparents and the child which signifies a Christians entry into the church. ...
And then EHYEH is a revelation of the Covenant God. So that these point to the fullness of the revelation of the GREAT name of Yehshas or Jesus as Creator God, the Blessing God, the Covenant God, and lastly the Saving God. Hence we have here that as the tabernacle and all the symbols and rituals of the Old Testament were TYPES and SHADOWS to be fulfilled and brought to their climax and completion with Christ and the New Testament Church WITH THE REAL, so all the temporary and substitute names and titles of God were only types and shadows of the REAL name of God revealed in Jesus Christ. So that the name of Jesus or Yehshas is not derived from any name of God, but visa versa, they were all derived from and point to Jesus Christ from which they all have their type ...

... ?. By Crucifixion.... What is Crucifixion? A medical doctor provides a physical description.... The cross is placed on the ground and exhausted man is quickly thrown down backwards with his shoulders against the wood. The legionnaire feels for the depression at the front of the wrist. He drives a heavy, square wrought-iron nail through the wrist deep into the wood. Quickly he moves to the other side and repeats the action, being careful not to pull the amrs too tightly, but o allow some flex and movement. The cross is then lifted into place. The left foot is pressed backward against the right foot, and with both feet extended, toes down, a nail is driven through the arch of each, leaving the knees flexed. The victim is now crucified.. As he slowly sags down with more weight on the nails in the wrists, excruciating fiery pain shoots along the fingers and up the arms to explode in the brain. The nails in the wrists are putting pressure on the median nerves. As he pushes ...
Yes, I believe in Jesus Christ. I didnt believe in Him growing up in South Central but as I gotten older and I was strung out on that damn crack. I was 19 when I physically stopped banging, I had left LA for a better life but wherever you go in life you got to take yourself with you lol. I moved to San Diego, then back to LA running from me lol. Yes, I laugh a lot now. Then I made a move to Texas after meeting a man in the US Marines. The first time I had fallen in love with someone after Lil Country died. This was 1975. I thought since he hadnt been where I been he could save me. (damn I was ignorant) Lets just skip all the middle cause I dont want to bore you all too too much lol. I was a LA girl strung out in Texas on Shermm, Crack, Pills and alcohol and that doped worked my ass until I was 33 when I got clean. I begin to experience somethings in my life no one knew anything about and I believe it was God working through me. I was a Manuel Arts High drop out and by 1997 I had 2 ...

I dont call myself a Jesus mythicist even though I suspect that there was no historical Jesus. As I explained to a friend of mine a few days ago, talking about historical figures is a real problem anyway since what were really discussing is a narrative. Put another way, we can talk about the Vietnam war, but someone will rightly contest that it was the Vietnam Conflict, not a war. Was the U.S. the aggressor at Tonkin? Does that mean we invaded Vietnam, or did we assist the faction of Vietnamese who wanted democracy instead of communism? These are all questions of narrative, but in the objective universe, there was series of events that happened in Vietnam. This is the problem of history.. As far as Jesus goes, I find the evidence to be rather skewed towards the Gospels as fiction and the Pauline epistles as either misinformed or misleading or both. I dont believe Paul referred to James as the brother of Jesus. I believe he referred to him as a brother in the same way that all early ...
As I noted in part 1 of this mini-series, not all non-trinitarians go this route. Some modalist Christians (who affirm the ultimate monotheistic deity of Christ but do not believe there are personal distinctions between Christ the Son and God the Father, any more than there are multiple persons for God the Husband, King and Judge) recognize that the NT texts occasionally call Jesus "the God". Some non-Christians recognize this, and count it as evidence of blasphemy by the NT texts! Some non-Christians recognize this, but think the texts say so as a development of doctrine from a non-ultimate-deity Christ to a full deity Christ. Some unitarian Christians recognize this, but think the texts are really talking about God the Father within Jesus when doing so, not about Jesus personally. At least a few unitarian Christians recognize this, and recognize the texts are really talking about Jesus, but think this means Jesus is something of exactly the same sort as God the Father while being an entirely ...
It is a misrepresentation to suggest that the Real Presence (often going by the term "transubstantiation") means the bread becomes "the natural body of Christ on the cross" and the wine becomes "the natural blood of Christ on the cross". Formal teaching, rather, has that Christs Real Presence in the Eucharistic species means that the whole Risen and Glorified Christ is present under the appearance of bread and wine. Let me stress again: the Risen and Glorified Christ is fully present under the appearance of bread; the Risen and Glorified Christ is fully present under the appearance of wine [see, for example, here and here (1374)]. That is not to say that aberrations, mis- and false interpretations are not taught, believed, and expressed by many, both Roman Catholic and Anglican (and others). Only recently, I was in a discussion where someone insisted that the wine MUST be red because its blood - my immediate response was that, hence, using WHITE bread would be a gross error! We should be using ...

The Bible describes Jesus as a friend of sinners. The NKJV describes Jesus as "a friend of tax collectors and sinners," not the least of which were the prostitutes of his day. The NLT refers to Jesus as "a friend of the worst sort of sinners!" So we can safely assume that Jesus had ladies who were prostitutes as His friends. The question is, what did Jesus say to these prostitutes? The first thing that would come out of the mouth of most Christians, if they were to associate with such women at all, would probably be something like, "If you dont stop turning tricks this very second, and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life, you might walk across the street, get hit by a bus, and spend eternity in Hell roasting like a marshmallow!" Was that Jesus approach? Because if it had been, Jesus probably would not have been a friend of prostitutes for very long. This, of course, does not mean that prostitutes, along with all sinners, do not need to be warned about the reality of Hell. This also ...

Robert James Matthews (12 September 1926 - 30 August 2009) was a Latter-day Saint religious educator and scholar, teaching in the departments of Ancient Scripture and Religious Education at Brigham Young University (BYU) in Provo, Utah. Beginning with personal contacts early in his career, Matthews was instrumental in conciliating relations between religious scholars affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the Community of Christ, which had separated in a schism in the 1840s. The two religious communities and their scholars.had long been at odds over access to and interpretation of important early texts of the Latter Day Saint movement. Matthews was particularly influential when in 1969 and 1970, scholars affiliated with the Community of Christ were invited to meetings of the Mormon History Association. The new scholars were welcomed, and some were chosen as officers in the organization in later years. Matthews is also noted for his promotion of the ...
On the other hand, the challenges of linguistic change over time is an area where the Book of Mormon shines and far surpasses what Macpherson and presumably Joseph knew. Linguistic change is implicit as a fact of life in the Book of Mormon narrative. Nephis scribal work may already be blurring the lines between Egyptian and Hebrew (1 Nephi 1:1-3; see Neal Rappleye, "Nephi the Good: A Commentary on 1 Nephi 1:1-3," Interpreter Blog, January 3, 2014; http://www.mormoninterpreter.com/nephi-the-good-a-commentary-on-1-nephi-11-3/.). We see the Mulekites, immigrants without written records to help maintain their language, have lost much of their language (it had become "corrupted") and need to be taught to understand the Nephites Hebrew after just a few hundred years of separation (Omni 1:17-18), with their rapid linguistic drift presumably accelerated by contact with local peoples in the New World. We see Nephites treasuring their written records as a means of helping them maintain their scriptural ...
Archaeological Evidence for Jesus Life, Death, and Resurrection. By GF Herrin. One of the most widely debated pieces of biblical archaeology known to exist is the 14 `11 " long by 3 ` 7 " wide ancient linen cloth known as the Shroud of Turin. The Shroud is historically purported to be the burial cloth of Jesus. On the cloth itself is the image of the full body (front and back) of a crucified man with details of wound marks, blood stains, and what appears to be ancient coins (issued by Pilate between AD 29 - 32) on each of his eyes (Kenneth E. Stevenson and Gary R. Habermas, Verdict on the Shroud (Ann Arbor: Servant Books, 1981), 134, 79, 64 - 65, 27). If authentic, the Shroud could be one of the most important historical pieces of evidence for the resurrection of Christ.. The history of the Shroud can be definitively traced back to 1357 when Jeanne de Virgy, the widow of Geoffrey de Charny, exhibited the Shroud as the burial cloth of Jesus in a small church in the town of Lirey, one hundred ...

The old has passed away." Dont go back to your old life. "You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness."

Jesus Christ was not the name by which he was known during his life. He was Jewish with a Jewish name, believed to be Yeshua ben Yosef I kept away from using this name as it was as common in that epoch as John Smith is today in the UK. Sorry, but giving Jesus a more human name doesnt lend anymore historical evidence to a god man portrayed in the bible. - Joshua son of Joseph. He was believed to have been an Essene in Qumran (where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found) the Vatican has over the years obtained and/or purchased many of the Dead Sea Scrolls and others are on display in Jerusalem and near me in the Huntington Library, Pasadena. The Nag Hammadi scrolls detailing the Jerusalem Church founded by Jesus Christs brother James (Yacov) continue in the style of the Essenes (sometimes referred to as the Righteous, the poor and the meek) are different to the Pauline Gospels. It is helpful to read up on the history up to and including Masada. Also to reference for yourself the Jewish meanings ...
In addition to considering a better future, I looked deep into the past, to the time of Jesus, and created a story about a NEW character in the Jesus story. What if on the heels of baby Jesus surging through the birth canal into the world, (cue the cattle and sheep, angels and Magi) another being pop out-a Super Placenta, fully animated, infused with the holy soup that marinated Jesus during those nine months of divine gestation? What if this placenta truly believes she is the twin sister of Jesus, inexplicably despised and rejected of men, is tossed on the dung and trampled on by livestock? What if in a huff she slinks off to go on her own set of adventures? What happens then?. I attempt to answer these questions and more in my story, The Amazing Adventures of the Afterbirth of Jesus, which is now being turned into a graphic novel by a fine artist at Us & We Art.. ...
It is not uncommon for me to use the term "Christ Consciousness" when discussing matters relating to New Age philosophies. Indeed, it is a commonly used buzz word in New Age and Occult circles, and I myself spent a fair amount of time trying to achieve this supposed level of enlightenment prior to becoming a Christian. In recent weeks, it has been brought to my attention via a number of readers that Ive not provided a good description of what exactly Christ Consciousness is, and why it is a dangerous concept.. To much of the non-Christian world, Jesus is dangerous. If He lived, and if He died, and if He rose again - this creates a conundrum for non-Christians. Some focus their time trying (and failing) to prove that He never existed, or that if He did exist, He surely was not God. However, with ample evidence that He indeed did live, that He was indeed crucified, and He was, in fact, resurrected…. some have adopted an entirely different approach to undermining Jesus Christ. Rather than deny ...

Christians have traditionally used wine during worship services as a means of remembering the blood of Jesus Christ which was shed for the remission of sins. Christians who oppose the partaking of alcoholic beverages sometimes use grape juice or water as the "cup" or "wine" in the Lords Supper.[39] The Catholic Church continues to use wine in the celebration of the Eucharist because it is part of the tradition passed down through the ages starting with Jesus Christ at the Last Supper, where Catholics believe the consecrated bread and wine literally become the body and blood of Jesus Christ, a dogma known as transubstantiation.[40] Wine is used (not grape juice) both due to its strong Scriptural roots, and also to follow the tradition set by the early Christian Church.[41] The Code of Canon Law of the Catholic Church (1983), Canon 924 says that the wine used must be natural, made from grapes of the vine, and not corrupt.[42] In some circumstances, a priest may obtain special permission to use ...
The Last Supper is one of the most popular (and most often parodied) subjects in art. Artists usually focus on either the announcement of the betrayal or else, like Blanchard, on the institution of the Eucharist. Depictions of the Last Supper date back to the earliest Christian frescoes in the second-century Catacombs of Rome, although some scholars say the supper scenes in the Catacombs show a future meal in heaven promised by Christ. For the first thousand years of Christian history artists tended to skip from the Last Supper to the resurrection. The Eucharist was celebrated as a feast of life instead of a re-enactment of his death. The bread and wine were not the crucified Christ, but the resurrected Christ. By the Renaissance it had become a favorite subject. Leonardo Da Vincis Last Supper from the 1490s continues to be one of the most famous paintings of all time. It has sparked a seemingly endless variety of imitations, from the sublime to the ridiculous. Some use it to make political ...
FOR Christ is theirs who are humble, and not who exalt themselves over his flock. The sceptre of the majesty of God, our Lord Jesus Christ, came not in the show of pride and arrogance, though he could have done so; but with humility as the Holy Ghost had before spoken concerning him.. 2 For thus he saith, Lord, who hath believed our report, and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed; For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground;. 3 He hath no form or comeliness, and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.. 4 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.. 5 And we hid, as it were, our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.. 6 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.. 7 But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with ...

Today my brother Keith turns 20, and because he is such an amazing dude he is celebrating it in Costa Rica serving the Lord, Jesus Christ. He has been in Costa Rica on his mission for our church preaching about Jesus Christ and the joy of His gospel for a year now and has one more grand year to go. I couldnt be more excited for him and the year ahead, as well as proud of what he has already accomplished and the man he is becoming. It is truly something to put aside your education pursuits in the prime of that time of your life and commit 2 years to the Lord. His example and dedication to giving 100% to the Lord while there is such a strength to me and my family. I see his testimony of the Savior and his atonement grow with every email I receive from him. The gospel of Jesus Christ has indeed been restored or brought back to the earth and we have the opportunity to enjoy the blessings of that restoration! He is making sure that the loving people of Costa Rica have that same great blessing. I ...
An alternative method for todays Christians to communicate to those left behind on earth after the rapture is to simply post, in a highly visible location in the home, a message such as: "I am writing this to you in the past. In your present time, the church (believers in Jesus Christ) has been raptured, and has been taken out of this world to be present with the Lord. You have been left behind. To gain eternal life and salvation, and to be with Jesus Christ, you must accept Jesus Christ as your saviour from sin and refuse to take the mark of the beast on your hand or forehead and refuse to worship the beast and his image or statue, even if it means you have to die. ...
VIII. The apostles proclaimed above all the death and resurrection of the Lord, as they bore witness to Jesus. They faithfully explained His life and words, while taking into account in their method of preaching the circumstances in which their listeners found themselves. After Jesus rose from the dead and His divinity was clearly perceived, faith, far from destroying the memory of what had transpired, rather confirmed it, because their faith rested on the things which Jesus did and taught. Nor was He changed into a "mythical" person and His teaching deformed in consequence of the worship which the disciples from that time on paid Jesus as the Lord and the Son of God. On the other hand, there is no reason to deny that the apostles passed on to their listeners what was really said and done by the Lord with that fuller understanding which they enjoyed, having been instructed by the glorious events of the Christ and taught by the light of the Spirit of Truth. So, just as Jesus Himself after His ...
One thing that differentiates Christianity from all religions in the world is the idea of grace. And what is grace? Simply put, grace is unmerited favor bestowed by a magnanimous God to undeserving recipients. Grace is never dependent on the status of the recipient but on his willingness to accept grace and surrender himself to God. Thus, we will never be saved by our own meritorious good works alone. And this grace is bestowed to all individuals who will accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. Thus, salvation is a grace from God. I never would have fully understood this word if I have not tasted and experienced it in my own life. Salvation through the acceptance of Jesus Christ was easy enough. But transformation, whereby we are transformed from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ is not. Thus, we need the grace of God to achieve it. Totally abandoning our former lives of indulgence in pleasure and sinful living is almost impossible without the ...
To deny yourself means to come to the end of yourself; to be done with yourself; to see yourself as bankrupt from any ability to save yourself; to not place any trust whatsoever within yourself to be saved. The Lord did not come to "complete us" or to help us "get in touch with ourselves." Far from it. The Lord is calling for us to be finished with ourselves: our desires; our goals; our ways; our own truths; our agendas; our self-made religious whims, ceremonies or inventions. We must "deny" ourselves to be His disciple. John Calvin says it this way: "the sum of the Christian life is the denial of self"- and I thoroughly agree with him. We must come to Christ not putting our confidence in our own "goodness", because we have none (Romans 3:10), but solely in what Jesus has done for us. The prophet Isaiah brings us to the end of our own righteousness by affirming, "All our righteous deeds are like filthy garments" (Isaiah 64:6). I recognize this is a hard way, for our entire culture shouts at you ...
The Bible talks about the Judgment Seat of Christ--also referred to as the bema--in three places: Romans 14:10-12; 1 Corinthians 3:10--4:5; and 2 Corinthians 5:1-10. Only church-age saints will appear at that judgment, as shown in 2 Corinthians 5:10: "For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ." The purpose of the bema is an exhaustive evaluation of our lives. First Corinthians 4:5 says the Lord will come and "bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each ones praise will come from God." That passage reveals Pauls emphasis on the judgment seat of Christ. Notice that Paul says each mans praise will come to him from God. God gives rewards to the victors; He does not whip the losers. We know that He wont condemn us for our sins at that point, because Romans 8:1 says, "There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus." Thus, the purpose of the judgment seat of Christ is to examine a Christians total life. We ...

As I have thought about Christs Crucifixion and the central place that Good Friday has held historically and theologically in Christianity, I would like to discuss four reasons why I believe that the cross should hold an important place in our private and public discourse, both among ourselves and in conjunction with our Christian friends. [26]. 1. The events on the cross are an integral part of the Atonement. The most important reason that we should consider the cross is that both doctrinally and functionally, it is part of Christs Atonement. I think it is fair to say that traditionally, Latter-day Saints have emphasized the Atonement as taking part in Gethsemane. For example, Elder Bruce R. McConkie has written:. Where and under what circumstances was the atoning sacrifice of the Son of God made? Was it on the Cross of Calvary or in the Garden of Gethsemane? It is to the Cross of Christ that most Christians look when centering their attention upon the infinite and eternal atonement. And ...
A bloody prisoner carries a crossbeam through the city in "Jesus Goes to His Execution." Jesus is surrounded by guards with guns. News reporters aim multiple cameras at him in a peculiarly contemporary form of intrusion. They broadcast his private pain to the world. He is walking barefoot to the execution site, carrying the means of his own death, the cross on which he will be crucified. He seems to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders. Nobody offers sympathy. A cheering spectator on the left looks out at the viewer, assuming that everyone shares his glee at seeing the blasphemer punished. A boy in a wheelchair watches with excitement, and perhaps relief that he is not being targeted this time. Jesus strides straight at the viewer with his face in shadow. His bare feet crunch on the broken shells of eggs that were thrown at him. He seems to be walking under scaffolding on a construction site. The low, overhanging roof adds to the tension, loading the scene with a heavy sense of ...
Gal 2: 14-19 But when I saw that they were not straightforward about the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter before them all, If you, being a Jew, live in the manner of Gentiles and not as the Jews, why do you compel Gentiles to live as Jews? We who are Jews by nature, and not sinners of the Gentiles, knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified. But if, while we seek to be justified by Christ, we ourselves also are found sinners, is Christ therefore a minister of sin? Certainly not! For if I build again those things which I destroyed, I make myself a transgressor. For I through the law ( the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus ), died to the law ( the law of sin and death ) that I might live to God. Parenthetical remarks added are mine. ...
XTalk: Historical Jesus and Christian Origins is a moderated, academic e-List dedicated to the scholarly investigation and discussion of critical questions and issues surrounding the study of the Jesus of History and the rise of Christianity. For detailed information, please see the groups Homepage at http://ntgateway.com/xtalk/ The Lists purpose is to provide an on-line platform for queries, debate, and proposals relating to the reconstruction of *the life, career, and aims of Jesus of Nazareth *the social, political, and religious world in which he lived, and *the nature and development of the social/religious movement which arose in his name. Additionally, XTalk is intended to be a venue in which those working professionally in the field of Historical Jesus studies and Christian origins may post and receive critical responses to papers or ideas that are in the process of development. This moderated list is intended primarily for professional scholars engaged in Historical Jesus research. But
Fumarase deficiency is extremely rare. Until a few years ago scientists knew of only thirteen cases worldwide. However, recently twenty additional cases have been documented in the border towns of Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah. These two towns constitute a closed and controlled community, and were settled in the 1930s by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which is a breakaway sect of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As such, many of the surrounding communities refer to this disease as "Polygamists Downs"[1] The fumarase deficiency gene has become very common in this community, due to the practice of inbreeding. It is believed that either Joseph Smith Jessop or one of the founders of the communities, or his wife carried the gene and passed it on to their descendants. The populations of Colorado City and Hildale are examples of the founder effect. ...
It is in the profession of religious belief, however, that we must go beyond the message offered by other persons of good will who do not share our faith, for we must publicly communicate the good news of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. The cost of proclaiming this message has always been great. Even in the infancy of Jesus, Simeon referred to him as a "sign that is spoken against" (Lk 2:34). Simeon likewise said to Mary: "A sword will pierce through your own soul also" (Lk 2:35). The Apostles Peter and Paul paid the price of martyrdom for proclaiming the message of Jesus, and thereby have become models for thousands of followers of Christ throughout the ages who have offered their lives in witness to the Gospel. In this age, Blessed Titus Brandsma gave his life as a priest and as a journalist in defense of the rights and dignity of every person and in witness to his faith in Jesus Christ. 3. How should Catholic communicators imitate the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Apostles and the martyrs in ...

Second, Paul started, not with Adam, but with Jesus.. It is clear that the primary reason Paul turned his attention on the one man Adam in the biblical story is because he began his thinking with the one man Jesus Christ.. The Apostles starting point was Jesus, Israels Messiah, who rose from the dead and was thereby declared Son of God and Lord of all, Jew and Gentile alike (Romans 1:1-5). For Paul, one Man now ruled the world, bringing life to everyone. As he sought to communicate this good news to both Jews and Gentiles, he thought through the biblical history and found a type (Romans 5:14) in Adam, one man who likewise had a worldwide influence by his actions.. In Romans 5, Paul is especially concerned to show how the world was filled with sin and death in the beginning, that is, in the time before the Jewish Law was given at Mt. Sinai, which made clear Gods religious, moral, and ethical standards (Romans 5:14). As he writes, "death reigned from Adam to Moses." By his transgression, Adam ...
Crucifixion, a method of slow and painful fatalexecution in which a victim is tied or nailed to a large wooden beam and left to hang for several days until eventual death from exhaustion and asphyxiation, was thought to be invented by the Persians in 300 B.C., and perfected by the Romans in 100 BC. Millions of Christians this Easter weekend will be thinking about the pain to Jesus Christ from dying on the Cross.. The following details about crucifixion were assembled Dr. C. Truman Davis, and published previously in New Wine Magazine.. 1. It is the most painful death ever invented by man and is where we get our term "excruciating.". 2. It was reserved primarily for the most vicious of male criminals. Jesus refused the anesthetic wine which was offered to Him by the Roman soldiers because of His promise in Matthew 26: 29, "But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Fathers kingdom.". 3. Jesus was stripped naked and ...
What kind of God do we serve? First, it must be admitted that men, millions of men, hundreds of millions of men, have died without hearing or seeing the gospel of salvation from God. In fact, hundreds of millions of men have died without ever hearing of the person, Jesus Christ. They have never heard the gospel message. These men died hopelessly and have entered eternity under the divine wrath of God our Father. While it is true that men may have hope in Christ outside of the visible church, it is not true that they can have hope of eternal life outside of Christ. Outside of Christ there is death and judgement. Unless men believe that Jesus is the Christ, they will die in their sins. I realize that many theologians, scholars, and pastors have argued that salvation can exist outside Christ, but that is a discussion for another time. It would fall under the catagory of apostasy. Since the gospel is necessary to spare men from hell, then one would reasonably think that God, if He loves everyone ...
Today is a little bit different from the Thinking Out Loud posts I did last year. This year, God put it on my heart to try to discover other girls who have recovered and are recovering and see if they would be willing to share their stories. Im incredibly grateful to discover so many that God has given a beautiful, second chance at really living in Him! These are their stories. This is a story, a story of a girl who is just SHARING so much gratefulness about the love of God in her life. Truly this testimony from Claire is a testimony of a girl who is learning to give thanks to God for everything, and that is incredible to me. Claire blogs at Galin Bloom, and I hope you can visit her and follow her journey of sweet joy and HEALING in the Lord Jesus Christ. Healing is so beautiful, and this is another one of those incredible stories. 1 Thessalonians 5:18, In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Today marks the one year anniversary of my Grandpaps death. I wrote this the day after he died, and posted it on my NRT blog. I wanted to post it on this blog, because I know at some point in our lives, every one of us faces the death of someone we love. Its hard, whether youve known them a week or all your life. But God doesnt leave us when death happens. Our bodies dont just sit in a grave for eternity. If you are a Christian, you have the hope of Heaven, of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Some day, either after you die or if Christ returns, you will get to see your loved ones again, but this time there will be no pain, no sickness, no disease, and no fear. If you dont have the hope of eternal life through Jesus Christ, I want to encourage you to email me with whatever questions you may have, ([email protected]) or to find a good, Bible-believing Church in your area. You can have the hope of eternal joy and peace in Christ. ...
There are several problems with Williams claims. First, notice that when it is convenient Williams will quote the Pastoral Epistles (PE), e.g. 1-2 Timothy and Titus, to prove his case much like he did in his debate with Latham. Yet he will not hesitate to call into question the reliability of these same sources whenever they are used to refute his assertions! Unfortunately, such blatant inconsistency is typical of the followers of Muhammad, especially those that are actively involved in spreading the lies of Islam like Williams. In fact, Williams just posted a blog article on December 22, 2011 titled, How Good Logic Leads to Good Theology, where he refers to WHAT THE APOSTLE PAUL WROTE about Gods nature in 1 Timothy 6:15-16 in order to disprove the Deity of Christ! Can Williams make it any more obvious of just how dishonest and inconsistent he truly is?(1) Be that as it may, since these writings are reliable enough for Williams to use to make his case then consistency and integrity demand ...
I, _________ now, in the presence of Almighty God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the blessed Michael the Archangel, the blessed St. John the Baptist, the holy Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul and all the saints and sacred hosts of heaven, and to you, my ghostly father, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, founded by St. Ignatius Loyola in the Pontificate of Paul the Third, and continued to the present, do by the womb of the virgin, the matrix of God, and the rod of Jesus Christ, declare and swear, that the holiness the Pope is Christs Viceregent and is the true and only head of the Catholic or Universal Church throughout the earth; and that by virtue of the keys of binding and loosing, given to his Holiness by my Savior, Jesus Christ, he hath power to depose heretical kings, princes, states, commonwealths and governments, all being illegal without his sacred confirmation and that they may safely be destroyed..

Most people assume that as long as they never hurt others, live a humble life and attend church regularly, do good deeds, or worship God in there own way, they are not sinners. This assumption can be misleading and totally dangerous. You are not a sinner because you commit sin. The sin of Adam has passed on from generation to generation until this present time. Hence anyone born into this world automatically becomes a sinner. "Wherefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men for that all have sinned."-Romans 5:12(KJV). Salvation in Christ Jesus is not by our works, but by undeserved mercy of God, that has to be accepted by men for it to take effect in their lives. If you refuse to accept Gods mercy through Jesus Christ, there is nothing else God can do for you, because it is impossible for Him to force you or anyone to accept His mercy. Gods mercy through Jesus Christ was costly to God, but he is offering it to all mankind free of charge. ...

Christianity is not a religion but a relationship. That bumper sticker has been around a long time now. Taking it as true, it lays groundwork for varying impact depending on how we interpret its meaning. The Gospel is the Good News of Jesus Christ. As christians, we are called by God to share this Good News via evangelism. The goal of evanglism is conversion to Jesus Christ. Many christians feel pressure, be it internal or external, to *make converts* the effect of this pressure can lead to turning evangelism into a sales pitch, and you just want to close the sale and get the customer to sign on the dotted line. Is this what Jesus meant by the Great Commission though??? Did he want to have us telling people they better convert asap or they will burn in an eternal hell?? Did He want us to bypass any semblance of establishing relationship at all to just get them to the end result??? Saying the sinners prayer or raising a hand as a sign you want to accept Christ are not in the Bible. Hmmmm, then ...
In 2012, Mormon General Authority Marlin K. Jensen acknowledged that members are leaving the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints "in droves." Access to the internet is often credited and blamed for this mass exodus, where members learn about problematic doctrines and cover-ups of LDS history.. Many are happy as Mormons. And many are not. Those who leave, and those doubters who stay, face struggles that few others can understand. Much of this suffering is caused by manipulative and controlling techniques pervasive throughout LDS doctrines and culture. Understanding these techniques will help recovering Mormons overcome the effects of belonging to a high-demand group.. As a former Mormon, Luna Lindsey experienced this coercive persuasion firsthand. Recovering Agency presents years of research into social psychology and the science of cult dynamics, to describe 31 mind control techniques, alongside examples of their use in Mormon scripture, lessons, and from the pulpit..

Main articles: Jesus Christ, Christology The second person of the Holy Trinity, the Son of God, begotten before all ages by the Father without a mother, was begotten in time by the Virgin Mary the Theotokos without a father. He is the Logos, the Word of God, and he became flesh and dwelt among us, as says the beginning of the Gospel of John. Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. This is the doctrine of the Incarnation, that God became a man. Our Lord Jesus is the Theanthropos, the God-man. He is not half God and half man, nor is he a hybrid of the two. Rather, he is fully God and fully man, perfect in his divinity and perfect in his humanity. He has two natures, joined together in the Incarnation without mixture, division, or confusion. As a result of being fully God and man, he also has two wills, one human will and one divine will to which the human one is submitted. He has two natures yet remains one person, one hypostasis. Jesus is God, the second person of the Holy Trinity. He is the I AM ...
For those who are followers of Jesus through trust in His promises, His perfection and His sacrifice, they are identified by their union with Him. We belong to Him. He has assigned us a new identity as beloved children of the God of the Universe. Our lives are wrapped up in Jesus Christ and He is the very substance of our lives and identities. The fullness of this reality cannot be fathomed until Christ returns in all of His splendor, at which time we also will appear in the glory which awaits us. The nature of the life of the Christian is that we laid down our lives in the One who laid down His life for us. Our union with Christ is certainly mystical but that does not mean that it is impractical. When we come to understand that we are complete in Jesus (Col. 2:10), entirely acceptable to the Father through Jesus (Eph. 1:6) and absolutely free of fearful condemnation from God because of the work of Jesus (Rom. 8:1), we began to understand that what describes externally us does not define us in ...

Mormons have emerged as a dominant fund-raising force in the hotly contested California ballot fight to ban same-sex marriage.. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have contributed more than a third of the approximately $15.4 million raised since June 1 to support Proposition 8. The ballot initiative, if passed, would reverse the current right of same-sex couples to marry.. The tally of Mormon contributions was provided by Frank Schubert, campaign manager for ProtectMarriage.com -- Yes on 8, the initiatives primary backer. A finance-tracking group corroborated Mormon fund-raising dominance, saying it could exceed 40%.. The Mormon Church decision to enlist members on behalf of the same-sex marriage ban has given supporters of Proposition 8 a fund-raising lead. The campaign to defeat the initiative has collected around $13 million so far, said Steve Smith, a top campaign consultant for No on 8, Equality for All. Both sides raised roughly equal amounts in the early stages, ...
 Learning about the physiologic mechanisms of death can be troubling to some. This is arguably even more distressing when talked about in the context of Jesus Christ.  I will include medical terms but strive to explain the medical jargon used.  Please stop me at any point during the presentation with questions you may have.
cation was plainly doctrinal. Now Jewish tradition invariably asserted that Jesus learned magic in Egypt. The kernel of this persistent accusation may perhaps be reduced to the simple historical element that Jesus went to Egypt and returned with far wider and more enlightened views than those of his former co-disciples, and in this connection it is to be remembered that, many scholars have argued, from the strong resemblance between the general features of the earliest Christian churches of canonical tradition and those of the Essene communities, that Jesus was an Essene, or let us say more generally a member of an Essene-like body. I therefore venture on the speculation that the inn of our story may cryptically refer to one of such communities, which Joshua considered very excellent, but which Jesus considered to have a too narrow outlook from the standpoint of a more liberal view of things spiritual. It is also of interest to recall to mind that excommunication from the Essene community ...
The scriptures teach that when Christ comes again to the earth, that he will be wearing red apparel. Why red? They also teach that at Christs coming, many of the dead will become resurrected.

Charlotte was born in Huntingshire, England. She along with her parents, were members of the Methodist Church. She married John Wright when she was 20. They joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1854. Their first two children had died, so it was with happy hearts in 1856, that they took their new baby to the LDS Church and there hear the elders promise the child a long life and give him the name of Hyrum Issac Wright. John and Charlottes greatest desire was to take their family to Utah, the headquarters of the Church. Through help from the Perpetual Immigration Fund, their joy was full when they boarded the Ship Arkwright in early 1866, with their three children. John was 35 years old, Charlotte was 36, Hyrum was 10, John, Jr., was 7 and Sarah Ann was not yet 3. About four weeks out to sea an epidemic of measles broke out among the children. Hyrum and John recovered from their measles. Little Sarah Ann remained sick and weak. Each day she became worse. Charlotte pleaded with ...

Many of us live half alive. We compare, compete, self-analyze, and self-promote in our endless, busy pursuit of perfection. Seated with Christ heralds a new kind of living. If its true what Scripture says, the we are treasured by God and given a place at his table, then all we need to do is to take our seats. Heather Holleman shows us how. Take your seat and live--simply, freely, fully--because of Jesus, for Jesus, and in the love of Jesus. Quit trying: be free. Seated with Christ: Living Freely in a Culture of Comparision (9780802413437) by Heather Holleman
A matter pertaing to a conflict can not be resolved honestly or justly if the proponents of the truth are insidiously ingnored to further the agenda of the ignorer? The real question should be what is the motivation propelling this blatant attempt to bury the truth that a lie may succeed? and at what cost? I do not see the reaoning associated with the competitive tone between Jesus and Socrates in the sense that this dialogue has framed them as adversaries.On the contrary they are allies in the struggle against ignorance.When you reflect on the substantive issues they addressed. Socrates illuminated the way for Jesus to expand upon his philosohies in order to bring them to the pennacle that truth had to offer(KNOWLEDGE). Jesus had aspired to such a high level of attainment in the area truth which is equivalent of knowledge faith began to develop, if I be killed my Father will raise me up again, because the knowledge of the truth is POWER.That is why they killed Socrates as well as Jesus to ...
Almost all experts agree that the Jesus of the Bible is a composite of myth, legend, and some historical evidence. So what can we know about the real Jesus? For more than one hundred fifty years, scholars have attempted to answer this question. Unfortunately, the "Quest for the Historical Jesus" has produced as many different images of the original Jesus as the scholars who have studied the subject. The result is a confused mass of disparate opinions with no consensus view of what actually happened at the dawn of Christianity.. About Richard Carrier ...
Levi was a distant descendant of Abraham. Abraham was long dead when Levi was born. But the text says that Levi paid tithes to Melchizedek. How is this possible? It seems the answer lies in the idea that one person represented his descendants. This would explain why Levi is said to have paid tithes to Melchizedek because his distant father Abraham did so and because Levi was "in" the loins of his distant father Abraham. Likewise, sin entered the world through Adam and not Eve because Adam was the representative head of mankind. If this is so, then Jesus would not have received a sin nature from His father Joseph since Joseph had no biological paternity in relation to Jesus. Therefore, his sin nature would not have been passed down to Jesus. But since he had a human mother, He had human nature. We can see He was both God and man because He is called both the son of God and the son of man. If it is true, then we can see that Jesus had a divine nature received from God and a human nature, but not a ...
Peter stepped out in childlike faith, not even asking for anything specific from Jesus. Just that openness alone opened the coffers of Gods generous grace. Jesus knew what he needed more than Peter did and he gave generously, lavishly.. Peter is overwhelmed at the power in this man Jesus and begs him to leave. He becomes acutely aware of his sinfulness as if a bright spotlight was suddenly shining on his life. It would be a life-changing moment for Peter as Jesus assured him that there was no need to fear for he was about to set off on a great adventure.. Peter is a role model for me, yet another example of why stepping out in faith and saying "yes" to Gods invitation in joy is what obedience is all about. In my mind obedience has gotten a bad rap.

Look down to verses 39-44:. "And those who passed by derided [Jesus], wagging their heads and saying, "You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross." So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, "He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, I am the Son of God." And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.". I said that crucifixion was a way of destroying someones credibility. And these people mocking Jesus certainly thought theyd done that. They were basically saying, "King of Israel?! But Jesus, kings are supposed to be powerful and in control. And you dont look very powerful or in control up there on the cross. And Son of God?! But Jesus, if you did have this unique relationship ...
This packet starts with some tossup answers that are difficult to write on. The Congress of Vienna is a very famous meeting, so when youre in a high school match and hear about a bunch of Europeans negotiating, you start thinking Congress of Vienna. Similarly, when you are trying to think of a war in a high school match and hear a bunch of names that sound Northern European/Scandinavian, you start thinking 30 Years War. Jesus Christ is Jesus Christ. If youre going to write about these things, which isnt necessarily a bad idea, you have to find a tight balance between giving specific clues so that people who know stuff can answer but not give transparent clues. I dont think that the description of Talleyrand fits that bill, but maybe Im wrong. You dont want to name Matthew or the Sermons early in a Christ tossup--it probably would be better to start with some philosopher/theologians description of him, or his treatment by a non-Christian religion. I think that Christian IV losing the ...
Do we remember how we were when we were not yet rescued by Jesus Christ from our decadent and evil filled lifestyles? How we sinned on the inside while professing piety and righteousness on the outside? How we enjoyed the orgies of sin in our minds through our fertile imagination? How we indulged in the revelry of sensual pleasures and the pursuit of happiness? How cruel we were to our loved ones, loving only ourselves? But all of that changed when we came to know Jesus Christ and have surrendered our lives to Him. Our dead spirit, steeped in endless sins, was reborn by the power of the Holy Spirit, and we became a new creation in Christ. The battle had only begun then. There were constant struggles as our former selves, steeped in evil habits, tried to reassert itself over our reformed selves. And by the amazing grace of God, we have survived one onslaught after another by the evil one. ...
There is many a sad wretch given by the Father to Jesus Christ; but not one of them all is despised or slighted by him. It is said of those that the Father has given to Christ that they have done worse than the heathen; that they were murderers, thieves, drunkards, unclean persons, and what not; but he has received them, washed them, and saved them. A fit emblem of this sort is that wretched example mentioned in the Ezekiel 16, that was cast out in a stinking condition, to the loathing of its person, in the day that it was born; a creature in such a wretched condition, that no eye pitied, to do any of the things there mentioned to it, or to have compassion upon it; no eye but his that speaks in the text.. And him. Let him be as red as blood, let him be as red as crimson. Some men are blood-red sinners, crimson-sinners, sinners of a double dye; dipped and dipped again, before they come to Jesus Christ. Are you who are reading these lines such a one? Speak out, man! Are you such a one? And are ...
Matthew (Part 28) John Ritenbaugh reiterates that chapter 21 describes Jesus Christs public announcement of His Messiah-ship, when the crowds would select Him to be the Paschal sacrificial Lamb of God. After overturning the money changers tables and cursing the fig tree, Jesus relates a parable about a man (symbolizing God) who planted a vineyard (symbolizing Israel and Judah), turning it over to some husbandmen (symbolizing the religious leaders who were responsible for the education of the nation), who later proved to be unfaithful, beating the owners servants (symbolizing the prophets) and killing the owners son (symbolizing Jesus Christ). The responsibility for tending the vineyard was removed from those wicked husbandmen (symbolizing the priests and Pharisees) and given to new servants who would tend it faithfully, bringing about quality fruit replacing physical Israel with the Israel of God- or the Church. If the Church fails in its responsibility, God will take it away again and give ...
Some see in Jesus an abundance of food and rightly so, for he says of himself: "I am the living bread come down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world" (John 6:51). Others see in him an abundance of health and rightly so, for the people "brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons" and "he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons" (Mark 1:32; 34). Others yet see in him an abundance of justice and rightly so for he "is just in all his ways and holy in all his works" (Psalm 145:17). Others seek in Jesus Christ understanding and rightly so, for he is Wisdom itself. I have found in him an abundance of love, of peace, and of joy and so I follow him and have given my life to him. Others seek riches in him and rightly so, for he is the "treasure buried in the field" and the "pearl of great price" (Matthew 13:44; 46). Indeed it is true that in Jesus Christ "The hand of the ...
1) I believe the Bible is true and that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of mankind. If Jesus Christ died on the cross, then this validates Adams original sin. If, however, man evolved from worms, then there was never an original Adam...thus no original sin that condemned mankind.....this, in turn, invalidates any reason for Jesus to die on the cross ...
As described in St. Paul and the tradition of the Fathers, the Church is not only a Body, with visible head and members and a juridical structure, it is also the Body of Christ. He bears a relation to the Body which is so intimate that Augustine often equates the two and, as in the phrase Christ preaches Christ, practically identifies the Lord with the Society that shares His name. Our penetration into the mystery will follow the same analogy, comparing the Church to a human Body and Jesus Christ in the role of its Founder who brought it into existence, its invisible Head who gives it life and sanctification, its constant support by His divine Spirit and its loving Savior by His cross and eternal redemption. Reflection on these affinities underlay the Gospel of St. John and the Pauline Epistles, and occasioned the most sublime insights of the great mystics. Under different similitudes, the alliance of Christ with the Church, as Bridegroom with His Spouse and the Vine with the Branches, is the

MONROE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio church says a giant Jesus statue is on schedule to be installed next month, replacing one that was destroyed in a lightning fire. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the new Jesus statue will be installed outside the Solid Rock Church in Monroe along Interstate 75. The installation was originally scheduled for July. The first statue was destroyed more than two years ago after it was hit by lightning. It depicted a waist-up Jesus with arms uplifted, and had the nickname Touchdown Jesus, or Big Butter Jesus for its creamy color. The new concrete-looking statue, a full-bodied Jesus with arms reaching out, is being built at a factory near Dayton. The newspaper reports one sculptor says its already received the nickname, Hug Me Jesus.. ...
Gordon B. Hinckley and Ormond S. Coulan during their missionary service in England, ca. 1933. Unlike American Protestant organizations, the Latter-day Saint Church did not consider evangelism as optional. Courtesy of Church History Library. Missionary training. Although most of the early luminaries of the Protestant foreign missionary enterprise were graduates of prestigious New England divinity schools and universities such as Yale, Princeton, and Williams, the majority of missionaries during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century had studied at lesser-known denominational colleges and Bible schools. Many were the product of the Student Volunteer Movement or like-minded groups eager to evangelize the world "in this generation." Mission agencies continually received candidates from church-affiliated institutions of higher learning. By the early twentieth century, between 87 and 95 percent of Protestant missionaries received formal missionary training and religious education at these ...

The Catholic Church during WWII. Jewish persecutions: banning Jews from working for public office, the enforcement of wearing yellow badges, the Jewish ghettos, burning of synagogues, and the extermination of Jews remind us of the atrocities committed by Nazis in WWII. However the atrocities above do not pertain to Nazi actions but rather the practices of Catholicism, centuries before Hitler came into power.. The seeds of Christian hatred for Jews begins from the readings of the New Testament and the persecutions began when the Church first held power to enforce its dogmas. The Biblical Paul, for example, put the blame of Jesuss death entirely on the Jews. In the first epistle of Paul to the Thessalonians (2:14-15), it says, the Jews who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets.... Also the gospel of John, makes it clear that the Jews represent an enemy (and John 8:44 puts the devil as the father of the Jews). Many prominent priests used Pauls epistles and the gospels as Biblical ...
