Romans 16:25–26: “Now to Him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith.

I just saw an #ASPCA commercial. It was heart wrenching. I don't like knowing animals are being abused. All the animals I've owned as an adult have been adoptions.....BUT....

However, just wondering where the sympathy lies for the millions of unborn children we have murdered in the country over the last few decades. #prolife

+Jerry Babione I have to admit that this economic, social, spiritual and professional reboot of my life has been very fulfilling. My wife and youngest daughter both say I am a completely different person...for the good.

However, my oldest daughter seemed to dislike the shift our family has made. She chose to leave and has moved in with a family that wholly embraces a secular post modern worldview with no discipline or structure in their home. She has basically cut herself off from us. It has completely torn my heart out. Every one of our family members and friends have been in complete disbelief. Many of them have called and tried to talk to her and she just sits on the phone in silence or stares at them when they talk. She had never really voiced any reason as to why she left...other than she didn't like her curfew and wanted to go to a different Church. Her curfew and Church have been the same for years, so I don't believe that's the real issue.

If any be a devout lover of God, let him partake with gladness from this fair and radiant feast.

If any be a faithful servant, let him enter rejoicing into the joy of his Lord.

If any have wearied himself with fasting, let him now enjoy his reward.

If any have labored from the first hour, let him receive today his rightful due.

If any have come after the third, let him celebrate the feast with thankfulness.

If any have come after the sixth, let him not be in doubt, for he will suffer no loss.

If any have delayed until the ninth, let him not hesitate but draw near.

If any have arrived only at the eleventh, let him not be afraid because he comes so late.

For the Master is generous and accepts the last even as the first.

He gives rest to him who comes at the eleventh hour in the same was as him who has labored from the first.

-- St. John Chrysostom, Paschal Homily

Christ teaches this and later commands that from that point on—to the end of the world—the Church should observe that repentance and forgiveness of sins are to be preached. Let everyone, then, learn that he must seek forgiveness of sins from fellow human beings and from nowhere else. For thus reads the command of our Lord Christ: “Truly, I say to you … whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18). Likewise, “If you forgive the sins of anyone, they are forgiven” (John 20:23). For God will not tolerate the building of special ladders and stairways to heaven to suit every individual. He alone wants to be the sole Architect.

Accordingly, if you desire your sins to be forgiven, go and be baptized, if you are still unbaptized. Or if you have been baptized, remember the promise that God made at your Baptism and do not be unbelieving. Likewise, go and be reconciled to your neighbor, and then ask for Absolution. And when you hear the announcement of the forgiveness of your sins in the name of Jesus, believe it, and truly you will have it. After that go to the most venerable Sacrament and receive the body and blood of Christ in the assurance that this precious treasure is meant for you and that you may enjoy it as your own, etc.

Baptism, Absolution, preaching, and the Sacrament are not to be despised, but in them forgiveness of sin is to be sought and obtained. To this end, God has called and commissioned your pastor, your father and mother, and your closest fellow Christians and has put His Word in their mouth, that you are to seek consolation and forgiveness of sin from them. For though human beings are talking to you, still what they say is not their own [word] but God’s Word. Therefore, you should believe it firmly and not despise it. …

This is why Anabaptists and other sects have lost in one stroke the forgiveness of sins, Baptism, the Sacrament, the Christian Church, and all Christian works: because they reject the Word when they hear it from their fellow man, regarding it as nothing better than the bleating of a calf. Well, suppose God were to speak to you through some cow or other animal, as He once spoke through a donkey?97 … Still, you are not to despise His Word, but regard it as valid. Why, then, would you despise it when men speak it by the command and order of God? For though you indeed hear a man’s voice, you do not hear a man’s [word] but God’s Word, and you surely will receive the forgiveness of sins attached to it, if you will only accept it by faith.

So, I guess, according to Rick Warren, if I am satisfied with my "simple" life as a penitent Christian, I am not a "good" Christian because I am not living a "great" or "extraordinary" life (whatever that means). Its nonsense like this being preached that drives people away from Christianity...because it IS NOT Christianity!

American Evangelicalism needs to repent and actually start believing Biblical Christianity.

Galatians 5:4

You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have fallen away from grace.
