Revelation and the End of All Things

The seven deadly sins

The Contrary Virtues were derived from the Psychomachia (“Battle for the Soul”), an epic poem written by Prudentius (c. 410). Practicing these virtues is alledged to protect one against temptation toward the Seven Deadly Sins: humility against pride, kindness against envy, abstinence against gluttony, chastity against lust, patience against anger, liberality against greed, and diligence against sloth.

“But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him. Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him.” ~ Acts 7:54;57

“Away with this truther conspiracy theorist! He’s confusing us with the truth! And we will hear only media-government propaganda! We have no king but Caesar!

The American Evangelical “Christian” denial of the bodily resurrection

It’s nearing that time of year again: Easter, when American Evangelical “Christians” are forced to deal with that which they ignore, virtually year-round: the resurrection of Christ from the dead.

All year long they tell us of how God has a wonderful plan for our lives, and of how Jesus died on the cross so that we can ask him to come into our hearts and give us a new and better life, in him… Continue reading

On being a peripatetic disciple of Christ

A peripatetic teacher, philosopher, theologian, preacher, or disciple is one who walks, or travels, while teaching… or one who, while traveling, by walking, who makes no home in any particular place, teaches and makes disciples, whether they be disciples of a school of philosophical or theological thought, or of Christ, which is what I seek to do wherever I am: make disciples, teaching them all that Jesus commanded us:

“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inb the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 Continue reading
