Lent is no match for Super Rodent!

excatholic4christ

This is the third week of Lent for Roman Catholics. Two weeks ago, I reposted my yearly observation on the inane perplexities of Lenten dietary restrictions; “Is it OK to eat Chicken in a Biskit crackers on Fridays during Lent?” Today, I’m reposting what’s already become another Lenten classic, last year’s “Lent is no match for Super Rodent!”

Enjoy!

Most of the topics I write about on this blog are serious matters involving spiritual life and death, but there are occasions when I come across something that can only be categorized as sadly comical. Case in point:

This year, the Catholic church’s Lenten season runs from Wednesday, March 6th to Thursday, April 18th (dates revised for this re-post) and Catholics are strictly forbidden from eating meat on all six of the Fridays during that span under the threat of mortal sin and eternal damnation. But getting down to the nuts…

Answering the alleged “95 Catholic Verses” – #s 93 & 94

excatholic4christ

Today, we will continue with our response to Dave Armstrong and his book, “The Catholic Verses,” in which the Catholic apologist presents ninety-five Bible verses or passages that allegedly validate Catholicism and are claimed to “confound” Protestants.

The previous two weeks, we examined the first two passages presented by Armstrong in chapter twelve of his book, in which the Catholic apologist attempts to prove the existence of purgatory and the need to pray for the dead. This week we will examine his final two proof-texts:

#93) 2 Timothy 1:16-18: “16 May the Lord grant mercy to the household of Onesiph′orus, for he often refreshed me; he was not ashamed of my chains, 17 but when he arrived in Rome he searched for me eagerly and found me— 18 may the Lord grant him to find mercy from the Lord on that Day—and you well know all the service he rendered…

Secret Underground Church Started By James The Half-Brother Of Jesus Discovered In Jerusalem On Mount Zion — Now The End Begins

There are two notable men named James we read about in the New Testament. There was James Zebedee, the brother of John, who the Bible refers to as the “sons of thunder”. The ‘other’ James is the half-brother of the Lord Jesus Himself. Recently, I came across these amazing videos of archaeological discoveries dating back…

Tribulation – Judgments! War!

Vietnam War – Music Video – Riders on the Storm – Info from the author of the video, Flying Dutchman – Published on Jan 27, 2018 – Dedicated to the soldiers who fought and died during the Vietnam War. Brave young men who served their country, which many of them never received a “welcome home” or a “thank you” from its country.

In the video we see men of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard. They may be enlistees or draftees. They may be active duty, reserve or national guard. I call them heroes!

The Vietnam War began. Members of the US armed forces, and allies, were called to serve in Vietnam; others were called to support the war effort from neighboring countries. For brevity purposes, I will call the men in the video, “troops.” They are seen wearing helmets, flop hats, tropical fatigues, flak jackets and…

If You Were To Die Today

Ryan Callahan's Blog

Grand Canyon Grand Canyon

Many of you know I received Jesus as my Lord and Savior my freshman year in college in 1996 through the ministry efforts of Campus Crusade for Christ.  During my entire four years at the University of Northern Colorado I was blessed with a great mentor and friend who was the Director of Campus Crusade at the time.  His name was Jim, but we called him Jim Bro because he called all the guys “bro.”  I received discipleship training in the Word and evangelism and soon I was sharing Christ all over campus with Jim and the other brothers from Crusade.  I want to share one of the questions Jim would ask when we were sharing Christ.  It is a shocking question and the answers people gave were very interesting and revealing.

The question is this:

If you were to die today, how sure are you that you…

What Can We Do When We Are Bullied Within the Body of Christ?

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

I never thought that I would write this piece.  Whenever I would think about it, I would just shake it off.  It’s not that important, right?

But then I began to wonder if other brethren had been mistreated and were hurting because of this.  It’s then that I realized that even if a handful of brothers and sisters in Christ were being mistreated by other Christians – then this IS important.

A Real Conundrum 

We expect to be mistreated from those in the world. Actually, if we are not mistreated by those in the world, then perhaps we should take a hard look at our walk with the Lord and our testimony.

But when others who we truly believe are brothers and sisters in Christ verbally batter us to try to make us feel inferior or just not very important in the body of Christ- this is a big…
