Nigeria: “This May Be Our Last Communion”; Speaking Truth on Homosexual Marriage and Parenting...more

Speaking Truth on Homosexual Marriage and Parenting ...It seems they have learned well the lessons of past experts in the manipulation of information. It was Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda minister, who once said, “If you tell any lie long enough, often enough, and loud enough, people will come to believe it.”

And that is exactly how truth is crucified and radical agendas are implemented. Keep the party line going at all costs, and refuse to run with any alternative points of view. We find this all the time in most Western media outlets. They are propagandists for all things homosexual. If, by some minor miracle, a contrary point of view is heard, it is as rare as it is remarkable.

An example of this occurred last night, and I almost fell out of my chair when I came across it. And it happened on the ABC no less. My only guess is they have been taking so much heat for their obvious secular left bias that they felt the need to offer a token view that differs from their own.

I guess they think if they actually allow a conservative voice on, maybe once every few months, that will allow them to claim that they are balanced and fair. Anyway, back to last night’s shocker. Katy Faust, who was raised by lesbians, and opposes homosexual marriage, was actually allowed onto Lateline last night...

Nigeria: “This May Be Our Last Communion ...“We tried to gather up the children and get them out or hide them,” Reverend O said. His voice faltered and he was silent for a moment as a tear rolled down his cheek. “My daughter was among them,” he told us. Then he asked the people, “Do you want me to close the service so you can escape?” After pausing to remove his glasses and wipe his tear-filled eyes, Reverend O continued, “They said to me, ‘You taught us that Jesus is worthy dying for. This may be our last Communion. We will take it and die.'”...

The Habit of Seeing God Face to Face ...Let me suggest that one way would be to develop the habitus of seeing God face to face, and one of the best ways of doing this, the saints tell us, is to begin to see the face of God in others we meet everyday. So I ask myself: When I meet others, do I see in them the face of God? Do I search for it, in their eyes and in their faces? Do I even look in their eyes at all? And so too, when they see me, do I show them the face of God? Or do I more often show them the face of that other fellow from the less pleasant place, who isn’t exactly the source of everlasting joy?

We are made, we are told, “in the image and likeness of God.” That’s the original plan, at least. But we have marred the image. We no longer are a clear mirror reflecting God’s benign countenance. We’ve become like one of those fun house mirrors that makes a person look misshapen and deformed. How, then, do we begin once again to reflect the true image and likeness of God?

The Ten Commandments are good place to begin; they reveal to us what it means to be in the image of God. And the Beatitudes show us what it is to be “like Christ.” There is, thus, we might say, a moral dimension to the imago dei.

To know that we have been made in the image of God and that, although we have marred the image, it has been restored by Christ, should come as good news to human beings who are often enough disposed to think of themselves as either the playthings of petty, capricious gods or the accidental by-products of a random cosmic event in an essentially meaningless universe. But it is not only news, it is a command. It is not only a piece of static information; it is a dynamic promise that should propel us forward...

"Shut Up, Bigot!": The Intolerance of Tolerance
Conservatives are called bigots because those who embrace the new sexual mores are beholden to the new tolerance as a plausibility structure. Postmodern liberals cannot comprehend the idea that one could simultaneously reject a belief and accept the person who holds it...

ISIS Enshrines a Theology of Rape
In the moments before he raped the 12-year-old girl, the Islamic State fighter took the time to explain that what he was about to do was not a sin. Because the preteen girl practiced a religion other than Islam, the Quran not only gave him the right to rape her — it condoned and encouraged it, he insisted...
