Anyone who’s familiar with Christian apologetics against Islam knows about Surah 4:157. It’s the verse in the Quran that forces Muslims to oppose the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The verse was “revealed” 600 years after the event that is at the center of the Christian faith.
On October 31, 2017, Protestants will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the “reformation”. Truth be told, it’s only the anniversary of Martin Luther posting his complaints of the door of the Castle Church. This event happened on October 31, 1517. It should be fair to point out that when the citizens of Germany woke up on the morning of November 1, 1517, they weren’t debating whether they should go to a Protestant Church since they didn’t exist at the time. Regardless, the reformation is erroneously fixed to this date in 1517 AD just like the Catholic/Greek Schism is erroneously dated to 1054 AD.
It’s October 2017. This is the month that many Protestants will celebrate the so called “reformation” since it’s 500 years from the posting of Martin Luther’s complaints on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. I’ve been thinking of Protestants a lot this month. If Luther had not done what he did, the people who today call themselves Protestant would be attending the Roman Mass and praying the Rosary.
A couple of days ago, a declaration came out entitled the Nashville Statement. This statement reaffirms Christ’s teaching on marriage and condemns homosexual relationships. It is an Evangelical document and is signed by many prominent Evangelicals including John McArthur, John Piper, Albert Mohler and many others. While I’m a committed Catholic and not Evangelical, I agree with everything in this document.
The year 2017 is the 500th anniversary of what is called the Reformation. One Church that emerged from the Reformation was the Anglican Church. Of all the traditional forms of Protestantism, I loathe Anglicanism the most. I feel this way because the Anglican religion was founded on lies and theft.
If you’re a religious conservative living in the anti-Christian West, you’ve probably heard this argument put forward by either secular or “Christian” liberals. It goes something like this: Did you know X% of Christians/Catholics believe in this or that liberal idea that goes contrary to the Traditional Christian faith. Yes, polling has become an idol for liberals and apostates. It reveals their true liberal agenda as well. They don’t want to destroy Christianity, they want to ruin it and marvel in it’s defeat. I don’t know about you but I know that true Christianity will exist until the end of time. Liberals will never be able to defeat it. After all, who is more powerful: liberals or the Holy Spirit?
Who exactly is the greatest danger to our civilization? It’s probably not who you think. When I ask most people, I hear a large amount of answers. These answers include Muslims, Jews, Freemasons, bankers, injury lawyers, homosexual activists, people who make and distribute porn, and many others. Let’s call them the usual suspects for brevity.
We hear about lots of conversion stories from Catholicism to Protestantism. Many of them go something like this:
Happy Canada Day! To my non-Canadian readers, let me inform you that today is Canada Day; the anniversary of the birth of our nation, similar to what July 4 is to Americans. Today, Canada turns 150 years old. This may seem impressive but in the end does it really matter? Although I am a tax paying citizen of Canada, my earthly citizenship is far less relevant compared to my eternal citizenship. I’m also a member of the Catholic Church, an organization that has existed since the New Testament and will continue to exist until the end of time. Canada can’t beat that.
On June 13, 2017, the book Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter Into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity was released. It was written by the well known American Jesuit Fr. James Martin. A few things should be pointed out about this book. The first is that it is not published by a Catholic publishing company; it is published by HarperOne like most of his books. Second, while it doesn’t contain the Imprimatur from the local Bishop, it does contain an Imprimi Potest from Fr. John Cicero, the Jesuit Provincial Superior of the USA Northeast Province of the Society of Jesus. I think that says quite a big about the current state of the Jesuits. Lastly, Fr. Martin is known to be a rank modernist. I didn’t expect the apostolic faith to be upheld in this book. In case you’re wondering, it wasn’t.
