Father Jacques Hamel, your bravery and strength for God in the face of evil should be enough inspiration and proof to bring every soul to the Church. Yet, many stumble and deny the Lord. We must pray for those evil souls and ask Our Father to speak to them. 

Pray for us, Father Hamel, that we have the courage to look evil in the face and keep speaking Truth, as you did. 

My heart aches. I feel sick to my stomach when I am social media lately. Especially Facebook. I don’t how being hateful has become cool and acceptable. This election has become so tense and hostile. I don’t care if you despise Trump or dislike Hillary. Just because someone else is hateful, that doesn’t mean it is okay for you to be. It doesn’t make the world a better place. You can disagree with someone and still befriends. You can have different political beliefs, faiths, culture, taste in music and more and still be friends and civil. I don’t want unwholesome talk come out of my mouths or my actions to be hurtful, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs. I want all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice to flea my heart. I want to be kind and compassionate and forgive. I want all of these because I want to shine in the darkness. I want all of these things because I refuse to conform to a world that is being fueled by hate. I am praying for the world that preaches love, but shows hate.

Pope Francis Speaks Bold Words at World Youth Day

“…  Islamic terrorists are blowing up, running over, and shooting innocent people. Politicos are lying, conniving, betraying and bowing before the corporate money god that rules their every action.

And our Holy Father tells us Have the courage to be happy.

Be happy in the face of a press that will not stop flogging us with lies, manipulations and propaganda?

Be happy despite the murderous unpredictability of young men who shout about their god while channelling satan?

Be happy when there is no meaningful pro life, pro family, pro religious freedom presence on this year’s presidential ticket?

Is he naive?

No.

He’s not naive. He is Peter.

He is speaking to us from an eternal perspective where the mercy of Christ means you and I can personally know and relate to the God Who made everything, everywhere. He is reminding us that the battle is already won, and Jesus Christ is the Victor; that we are children of the living God and heirs to eternal life.

We can choose to Have the courage to be happy, to live the peace that passes all understanding, and move forward with the conviction of our faith. We can do it because we are Christ’s followers, not the world’s…”

Wiles believes that, “The enemy, Satan, is targeting churches with virtual, digital, cyber-demons. I believe [Pokemon Go] is a magnet for demonic powers.”

Pokemon Go is a game phenomenon which has added $7 billion to the value of Nintendo in less time than it takes to pickle a cucumber. But a number of podcasters and YouTubers have suggested that the game is anti-Christian, even Satanic. These charges are false, and are based on a satirical…

Why do you believe in God?

I’ve sat here trying to come up with the answer of elegance, but elegance can’t best simplicity. So simply put, I believe in God because He makes sense to me. Not just that He makes sense, even, but more often than not He is the ONLY thing that makes sense to me. Amidst this precarious and unstable life, God is the only thing that will never change.

This isn’t a blind faith, God makes himself known in the most extraordinary ways. Whether it be how His Word was written (by over 40 authors of all different standings, in multiple languages, from multiple countries, from multiple continents, over a span of over 1500 years and yet is without err or contradiction) or how I’ve seen Him work in my own life, I know God is real. There is no other feasible explanation. All of creation proclaims His glory.

Every other religion has contradictions or flaws. No other religious text has the validity of the Bible - they were neither written under such humanly impossible circumstances, nor authenticated as much as the Bible (it’s the most historically accurate ancient text). No other religion, no false god, can withstand the questions I put to it. But Jesus Christ can.

I believe in God, because I have found no other to be worthy of my praise. The truth is I am a sinner in need of a Savior and Christ alone can save me. No other religion gives that kind of hope. In every other religion, I have to earn my salvation through works. If that’s the case, why should I praise a god when I’m earning my own salvation? But God says my good works are like filthy rags compared to His perfection, that I could never earn my own salvation. Yet, He paid the price in my stead, dying on a cross, and asks only that I repent and put my trust in Him. My God is a just God, but He is also a God of mercy and love that I don’t deserve. My God is mighty and strong, and He is the only God that is worthy to be praised.

It’s time to end the religious test for elective office in America
While Article 6 of the Constitution forbids a religious test for elected officials, the beliefs of candidates have determined their chances in the political arena.

A collection of more than 19,000 emails from Democratic Party leaders lifted and posted by the document exposé website Wikileaks discloses apparent opposition research conducted against Bernie Sanders: one of their own presidential candidates. A May 5, 2016 message from DNC CFO Brad Marshall, in particular, questions Sanders’ religious beliefs.
