Why Didn’t the Reformation Happen in the East?

Has anyone asked the following question: why didn’t the so called Reformation happen in the East?  Why didn’t it happen in Russia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Armenia and other Eastern Countries that call themselves Christian.  This is something that I’ve thought about for a long time and I believe that I’ve found the answer.

Judaism vs Zionism…and Donald Trump

Donald Trump has recently announced that America will now recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.  Also, he has initiated a process where the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem.  This obviously has huge ramifications for the Arab Israeli conflict.  I won’t comment on that here, but I do want to talk about the history of Zionism.

Orwell Would Be Proud of Michael Coren and “Christian” Leftists

To this day, 1984 is one of my favorite works of fiction.  George Orwell certainly knocked it out of the park on this one.  It’s because of having read books like this and studied logic that I know how to see past slippery language. 

Who is the Greatest Enemy of our Civilization?

The Pharisees

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.

The Catholic Soul of England

Glastonbury Abbey – A Monastery that stood for over 800 years before Cromwell executed the Abbot and looted the treasury

England is a very interesting country.  It is a nation who’s Empire once spanned the globe and spread English values to the farthest reaches of the Earth.  I live in Canada which was founded as an English colony.  The country also has a very rich Catholic history.  If you were to visit England 500 years ago, you would have seen about 900 religious houses throughout the country.  These included monasteries, abbeys, priories, convents, friaries, and other religious houses.  The religious life was by no means restricted to the clergy.  They played a large role in the life, culture, and economy of England.  What happened to this rich Catholic monastic life?

Refuting Matt Slick on Mary as the Queen of Heaven

The Queen of Heaven – The Blessed Virgin Mary

I have responded to Matt Slick in the past.  Not long ago, I wrote a piece against his views on the Deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament. Since Slick has criticized many other doctrines of the Catholic Church, I thought that I would respond to some of them. Today I will tackle his argument that Mary cannot be the Queen of Heaven in Revelation 12:1-2.  His article on this issue can be found here:

Using Their Own Liberalism Against Them

A good tactic for debating liberal “Christians” is to push their boundaries.  For example, homosexual apologists like Matthew Vines and Michael Coren are religious liberals. In other words, they are religious in their liberalism. They aren’t liberals in the fact that they know what Christianity teaches and reject parts that they may find uncomfortable, they are religious in their liberal views.

The False God of Lauren Southern

Today Canadian conservative pundit Lauren Southern posted a video which basically says that Muslims are invading our culture. She said that they have high fertility rates and are threatening our precious Western values which no one is standing up for any longer.  I’m embarrassed to say that when I was her age, I thought in this ridiculous manner as well.
