Noah (The Movie) and The Last Days

“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit, in which he went and proclaimed to the spirits in prison, because they formerly did not obey, when God’s patience waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through water. Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers having been subjected to him.” (1 Peter 3:18-22) Continue reading

Michael Voris on Hell

“Balthasar, in Dare We Hope “That All Men Be Saved”? claimed there was no certainty that anyone is in Hell or ever will be in Hell. He stated that “the Church … has never said anything about the damnation of any individual. Not even about that of Judas.” Thus, he declared, every Christian has the “obligation” to hope that all men are saved, including Judas…” Continue reading

“Symbols of peace have come under attack at the Vatican.”

“People break down into two groups. When they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance… Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?” Continue reading

Pop goes the Pope — Pope Francis: Pop Culture Icon

In today’s postmodern popular culture, no person and no institution should be as hated as should be the pope and the Catholic Church. Yet today’s postmodern popular culture loves Pope Francis, if not the Catholic Church, which Francis is trying very hard to put a new, hip, friendly, and oh-so-tolerant face on… in order to make the Church appear relevant to postmodern persons, by ridding her of everything today’s postmodern popular culture needs: timeless morals, traditions, and — yes — dogma… Continue reading

Honky-Tonk Gospel

“Country music is music for adults. Rock and roll is about adolescence — their young loves and lusts, their rebellions, and their insecurities. No such generation gap exists in country music…. country music sings about adult concerns: marriage, work, children, memories. It also sings frankly and poignantly about adult problems: divorce, single parenthood, alcoholism, job woes, money worries, loneliness, death.” (Honky-Tonk Gospel, p 12) Continue reading
