The Purpose Of His Glory

The purpose of His Glory is not just for us to bask all day in His Presence, although it is available to us on  His  Holy Mountain, but for the work of the  Kingdom of God. There is an enemy that is loose like a roaring lion, that is destroying God's people. God is omnipresent. David says it best in Psalms 139:7,  "Whither shell I go from thy Spirit ? Or whether shell I flee from thy presence ? If I ascend to Heaven, thou are there ! if I make my bed in Sheol, thou art there…

The Pope's Advice Regarding Speech Raises More Concerns Than It Answers

As he continues to build a pontificate endeavoring to appeal to nearly everyone on some level, Pope Francis responded to the Charlie Hebbdo massacre in the same spirit.

The Catholic News Service has the Pope on record as saying “It's true, one cannot react violently... But...one cannot insult other people's faith, one cannot make fun of faith.”

However, in a profoundly decayed…
