INTELLIGENT DESIGN

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

How can natural selection even start without an original design? When you look at all of the knowledge that we have taken from scientific pursuits, and you look at it with no expectations, what you see is breathtaking. The universe is an amazing place.

So how can natural selection even start without an Original Design? Your living organism must have come to existence at some point. They reproduce now that they are complete and existent, but for them to come in existence they must have been created. Tell me anything you have ever known that came to existence from nothing — without a cause. Which came first the chicken or the egg? You can’t have one without the other, unless there is a Divine Creator. I’ll let you think on that for a while.

A person needs to study the probabilities to determine if intelligent design is involved. The chances of finding a functional protein by chance is 1/10 to the 164th power… Now to understand this gigantic number just knows that there is only 1/10 to the 80th power particles in the known universe.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

A car that could reproduce itself would be way ahead of our technological abilities. The base idea of the argument is the complexity of organic life, is far more complex than a car or a watch, of anything man can make. It has several parts that are required to be all present at once in order to function. The idea of a car randomly coming together over time is preposterous and even more so for something that is more complex in nature.

INTELLIGENT DESIGN

Natural selection is based on emotional ideas which, even if by some wild chance turned out to be correct, are still illogical given the state of our knowledge: the First Cause. There was an entire planet to start with – a planet with at least the simplest form of pre-biotic “life” that evolution began with. Evolution did not start with nothing.

Evolution only explains the diversity of species. Mutations of organisms slowly change within their environment to be able to survive as efficiently as possible. Evolution doesn’t attempt to explain mutation and the First Cause or the Master Biological Programmer

ARE YOU AN ASPIRING THEOLOGIAN?

WHAT IS THEOLOGY?

ASPIRING THEOLOGIAN

Theology is neither a nine-to-five job nor a career. To know and speak truly of God is a vocation that requires more than academic or professional qualifications. The image you should have in mind is not the professor with a tweed jacket, but rather the disciples who dropped everything to follow Jesus. Becoming a theologian means following God’s Word where it leads with all one’s mind, heart, soul, and strength.

Theology is the study of how to speak truly of God and of all things in relation to God. But theologians can’t approach the object of their study the way biologists study living creatures or geologists the earth. God cannot be empirically examined. God is the creator of all things, not to be identified with any part of the universe or even with the universe as a whole. Speaking of God thus poses unique challenges. If God had not condescended to communicate to creatures something of his light, we would be in the dark.

BY GOD, OF GOD, TO GOD

Are you familiar with Thomas Aquinas’s definition? “Theology is taught by God, teaches of God, and leads to God.”

By God. Only God can make himself known. We’re simply children who love their father and want to know him better, who trust their father’s wisdom: And He (Jesus) said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”                                                                     Matthew 18:3

Of God. Theology is thinking hard about what God has taught about Himself and all things in relation to Himself.

To God. Theology is ultimately about cultivating godliness, in oneself and one’s community. A theologian is a certain kind of person, whose created intelligence has been illumined by the Holy Spirit. Continue reading ARE YOU AN ASPIRING THEOLOGIAN?

THE CHALLENGE OF AGING 2

EMBRACING THE CHALLENGE OF AGING

challenge aging

Waiting patiently in expectation does not necessarily get easier as we become older. On the contrary, as we grow in age we are tempted to settle down in a routine way of living and say: “Well, I have seen it all. … There is nothing new under the sun. … I am just going to take it easy and take the days as they come.”

But in this way our lives lose their creative tension. We no longer expect something really new to happen. We become cynical or self-satisfied or simply bored. We have become couch Christians.

challenge ageing

God is still writing your story.
Don’t let go of your faith because of what you have yet to see.

The challenge of aging is waiting with an ever-greater patience and an ever- stronger expectation. It is living with an eager hope. It is the trusting that through Christ “we have been admitted into God’s favor … and look forward exultantly to God’s glory”     Romans 5:2

GETTING TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST 2

SEEING JESUS

Seeing Jesus is what Christianity is all about. In its purist form, it is nothing more than imitating Him whom we see.

KNOW JESUS CHRISTFaith is a gift of God. Faith is the supernatural activity of God whereby He opens blind eyes, unstops deaf ears until you say, “I see it now!” The other side of the coin is that man must freely accept this gift of God. 

Faith is not something that must be intellectually understood as much as something that has to be experienced and lived. The secret of faith is that we must cultivate a deep and warmly personal relationship with Jesus, so that everything one does becomes an act of love for and faithfulness for Jesus.

God’s favor is surrounding you like a shield. Every bad break, every disappointment, and every person who does you wrong is part of the plan to get you to where you are suppose to be.  God doesn’t just send the storms: He uses them to cleanse us.

 It may be very difficult for us who are unloving to know God who is love. But when God touches us we are transformed and the sign of this transformation is a new ability to love.

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”                                                                                             Matthew 11:27

GET TO KNOW JESUS

The answer to the many problems involved in the life of faith is always the same: GET TO KNOW JESUS. Continue reading GETTING TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST 2

HARDSHIPS: A CHRISTIAN SOLUTION

Trusting God Even During Hardships

Hardships Christian solution

 Ever think God was dealing harshly with you? We need to stop and ask ourselves, “What is the main purpose of a Christian life?”   It is to bring glory to God. We tend to lose sight of this when bringing glory to God involves some hardship, suffering, difficulty or problem in my life.  “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” I Corinthians 10:31

Believers sometimes falsely think that because they are Christians they should lead problem-free lives.  We may ask, “Is difficulty in my life a sign of God’s judgment?”  When we do disobey God we defy His authority and despise His holiness. But when we fail to trust God we doubt His sovereignty and question His goodness. It is always good to bow in prayer before God and ask Him if our troubles are due to some sin or disobedience in our lives. Prayer is the most tangible expression of trust in God. Because He is faithful to His promises, He will answer.”

GOD IS IN CONTROL, NOT US.

CONCUSSION INJURY HEALED

MY INVISIBLE ILLNESS OF CONCUSSION INJURY IS MORE REAL THAN YOUR IMAGINARY MEDICAL EXPERTISE OF HEALING.

Meet four members of the Concussion Injury Group, a band of advocates so determined they risk taxing their personal health, short-term, for the end game of better care for others.

Three of the four lost top career positions due to sudden, and freak brain injury. A fourth had her career path altered but is about to graduate, thanks to home-schooling and the online courses of Carleton University.

Jane Clark, 55, was a leading patent litigation lawyer. She kept company with scientists from around the globe, held senior management positions, did volunteer work in the community and sang in the office band. Five years ago, her life was forever altered by a simple slip on ice.

“I lived life large,” Clark says. “Now it’s very much about living small.”

Friday, Clark leaned heavily on the arm of her grown son, Alex, as she left the building.

Natalia Rybczynski, 46, holds a PhD in biological anthropology and anatomy from Duke University. She was a researcher at the Museum of Nature and a professor at Carleton University. Her passion was leading paleontology expeditions to the High Arctic. Along the trail she blazed, Natalia discovered new fossil mammals and was featured in scientific journals, including the journal Nature. In 2015 she was named one of Canada’s top explorers.

TO A SINFUL SOUL 2

Have no fear to approach Me.

Sinful Soul

“I desire trust from My creatures. Encourage souls to place great trust in My fathomless mercy. Let the weak, sinful soul have no fear to approach Me, for even if it had more sins than there are grains of sand in the world, all would be drowned in the unmeasurable depths of My mercy“.                                                                               Diary 1059

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, St. Faustina, bringing a wonderful message of Mercy:

sinful soul

  1. GOD’S LOVE: “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love”. 1 John 4:8. No one can know what love really means unless he first knows God through the experience of faith.
  2. God loves us as we are. The deadliest of all delusions about God is the notion that He can be angry. God who is unchangeable remains forever loving. So God continues to love, no matter what our choices are.
  3. Man’s response to God is to love our fellow man. The ability to love one another is God’s gift to us. “Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.”                                                                                               Matthew 25:40
  4. God is our destiny. There is an interesting story of Florence Chadwick who almost swam the English Channel. When a fog rolled in, she said that she could have made it, but she couldn’t see the shore.
  5. God’s Providence rules the lives of man. It is the belief that we are put in contact with God each moment in order to follow His divine plan for us.

GOD’S LOVE FOR US Continue reading TO A SINFUL SOUL 2

PRIDE AND HUMILITY 2

SPIRITUALLY ARROGANT

The religious leadership 2000 years ago clamored to be emulated. Their desire was to be honored and revered. They were spiritually arrogant and purposely placed themselves on a pedestal to receive everyone’s praise.

The high and lofty one who lives in eternity, the Holy One, says this: “I live in the high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.”      Isaiah 57:15

“A humble person has no trouble giving another a higher place than himself. He also acknowledges the greatness of God and how little he knows. A humble person is gentle and never arrogant. He does not show off to make an impression but remains in the truth. He does not rely on his own words but on the Word of God. A humble person cares for others and wishes all to advance. He is quick to pardon and never holds grudges.

He knows that he is weak and in need of God’s strength at every moment. He has no problem to ask another for help and he is always asking the Father for His grace.

The above messages came to Father Melvin Doucette.

In the Sermon on the Mount, many things that have earthly value are overturned, showing that in Your Kingdom things stand on different, purer standards.

“God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him, [poor in spirit] for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”    Matthew 5:3

REALITY OF HELL

REALITY OF HELL One of the great dangers of this century, and thus one of the great triumphs of Satan, has been the growing disbelief in the existence of Hell. For many, Hell has become a fable, a myth, an outdated holdover from “the Old Testament God of fire, brimstone and judgment.”

WHAT HELL IS LIKE

Hell is a place of fire. Matthew 13:42 speaks of it as a furnace of fire. Matthew 25:41 calls it an everlasting fire. Mark 9:44-45 says the fire is never quenched. Revelation 21:8 refers to it as the lake of fire. There will be no relief from its fires because Revelation 14:11 says the smoke from the fires of torment ascends forever and ever.

Jesus warns: “And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter into life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire…”                                        Mark 9:42

TESTIMONY: GOING TO HELL

One of the greatest mystics of this century was Sister Josefa Menendez, who died in 1923 at the age of 33. More than once, she was taken to Hell to witness and feel the suffering first-hand:

“My soul fell into abysmal depths, the bottom of which cannot be seen, for it is immense . . . ; then I was pushed into one of those fiery cavities and pressed, as it were, between burning planks, and sharp nails and red-hot irons seemed to be piercing my flesh. I felt as if they were endeavoring to pull out my tongue, but could not. This torture reduced me to such agony that my very eyes seemed to be starting out of their sockets. I think this was because of the fire which burns, burns. . . not a finger nail escapes terrifying torments, and all the time one cannot move even a finger to gain some relief, not change posture, for the body seems flattened out and [yet] doubled in two.

WHAT DOES GOD THINK OF HOMOSEXUALITY?

 HOMOSEXUALITY GOD

 WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE HOMOSEXUAL?         IS IT INHERITED?

Three possible reasons why people may go through a phase of being interested in someone of the same sex could be curiosity, slower sexual maturity, or misguided messages from the media that approve of homosexuality. There is no conclusive proof that homosexuality is inherited. (Experts such as Harvey, Nicolosi, Whitehead, Rudegeair et al, say that it is more likely to be socially caused, e.g. by a non-loving parent and/or various other types of neglect).

 NOW HERE IS THE REAL KICKER. 

A pastor, who is very connected to God, tells a story. He asked God why it is that his brother was gay and yet hes was not. You will not find this answer in any psychology book.

homosexuality God

God said that when his brother was in the womb, there were destructive arguments between the mother and the unreasonable father. His brother took the side of the mother, his more feminine side.

A combination of both biological and social factors combined mold people into who they are and determines the mindset of one that chooses to engage in criminal behavior. We are not saying that homosexuality is criminal, but there are similarities.

The social environment is the main reason why individuals commit crime, and, secondly, crime occurs and is fostered by biological traits that eventually lead to criminal behavior. So it is all about the environment: one’s peers are those individuals that tend to coerce or indirectly effect the decision making of another. It’s also all about the biological rejection of a parent from a child in the womb.

HOW DOES THE CHURCH REGARD HOMOSEXUALITY?

To have a homosexual orientation means to be sexually attracted to someone of the same sex. The homosexual act is an act of grave, but the tendency towards the act is seen by the Church as a disordered condition. Whilst never accepting the sin we must always love the sinner, always being ready to give a respectful account of the truth.

IS GOD ANTI-GAY?
