  • Forgiveness of Sins

    Forgiveness of Sins

    It is a tragedy to watch Ireland abandon centuries of Christian tradition to become a bastion of anti-christian sentiment, atheism and humanism. I believe that the main reason that this has happened is that the majority of the people of Ireland have rightly turned with horror from the abuses of the Roman Catholic churches hierarchy […]

  • Easy to Understand, Hard to DO

    Easy to Understand, Hard to DO

    Jesus’ definition of a hypocrite was someone who did not practice what they taught (Matthew 23:3).  In my experience this is a surprisingly common phenomenon especially in my own life! James also said this about the same type of thing: 22 But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you […]

  • Out of the same spring

    Out of the same spring

    Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” 17 And Jesus said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Barjona, because flesh and blood did not reveal this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 I also say to you that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it.19 I […]

  • Losing your life

    Losing your life

    If you refuse to take up your cross and follow me, you are not worthy of being mine. 39 If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it. Matthew 10:38,39. Everyone lives every day in the shadow of death whether we want to […]

  • Difficult Passages

    Difficult Passages

    Jesus is the most lovely person that ever lived but He sure said some difficult things at times.  Some of the more difficult are those things He said concerning those who will call Him “Lord, Lord” on the Judgment Day: “Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. […]

  • Faith Tests

    Faith Tests

    So God speaks to you, not once but often, promising something huge.  He tells you to do something about it and you obey.  And then all hell breaks loose. First of all, the exact opposite to what God promises happens.  You pray for healing believing God has spoken to you saying that that person, or […]
