FAITH AND SOCIALISM

ECONOMIC STRUCTURAL DISORDER

There are profound problems with our economic system – a structural disorder of the system itself. We need a critical analysis of the essential dignity of human labor and its priority over the maximization of profits—not just through handouts. Cosmetic changes are not enough.

We need to look at the humanizing role of labor and the equitable distribution of the world’s goods. We need to look at the full value and meaning of work.

FAITH AND SOCIALISM

We have an economy that continues to serve the needs of the rich nations at the expense of the poor. This is not to be considered an antagonism toward the rich, but the defense of the defenseless: the uneducated, the native poor and the immigrant poor who have no voice to speak for themselves.

FAITH AND SOCIALISM

 Do we run a risk that some of the economically oppressed nations of the world will rise in judgment on the rich nations?

WHERE DID IT ALL GO WRONG?

HAVING TWO MINDS

TWO MINDS

When Neymar’s Brazil won gold in its home Olympics in 2016, Neymar took the podium to receive his gold medal with a headband reading “100% Jesus.” Yet this ostensible display of devotion caused controversy, given the star player’s out of wedlock son and public love life. Fame and fortune are always dangerous to the Christian. 

TWO MINDSThere are those who have two minds because one is wavering or inconstant. This person has no settled principles. He is controlled by passion; he may be influenced by popular feeling. In other words, he is inclined to one opinion or course of conduct, and now to another. “A man is of two minds, unstable in all his ways.”      James 1:8  Continue reading HAVING TWO MINDS

TRUE MIRACLES

BEING OPEN TO MIRACLES

It is the will of God that we should be healed. It is the will of God that we should be awake to love and aware of God’s goodness in our lives. What is the miracle in your life that you need to pray for?

TRUE MIRACLES

If you want to believe in miracles, there is overwhelming evidence from physicians, who witness “life after death” experiences. In 2014 a four year study was made of over 2000 patience, who had some kind of awareness before they were revived from what appeared to be death. Over 46% of the patients experienced seeing light, feeling at peace and having thoughts. Sixty-three of them (2%) had out of body experiences where they could describe in great detail what was happening around them. The scientists who conducted the survey more favorably believed in life without a physical body after death: rather than simply believing that this life is all there is.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

A NOISY MIND

An immoral mind is a noisy mind because it is filled with the clatter of one’s own ego. Other noisy minds lose its center because its energies are scattered over a multitude of concerns: multi-tasking. This is the big flaw of our culture.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

When the mind is quiet, things become clearer. We become aware of what we must do. We must learn to slow down our minds to become more focused and more sensitive to God’s presence.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF PORNOGRAPHY?

Dr. Victor Cline (1996) posited four progressive effects of pornography:

(1) Addiction, where the need to view pornographic materials leads to a loss of free control over behavior;

(2) Escalation, where the person delves into progressively harder pornography, usually to attain the same level of sensation and arousal;

(3) Desensitization, whereby the user is no longer morally sensitive to the shocking, repulsive, perverted, or immoral quality of the material, but instead views it as acceptable and begins to look upon others as objects; and

(4) Acting out, where the fantasizing becomes overt behavior. This includes normalized aggression towards women in sexual and other interpersonal encounters. Pornography kills love!

The issue of sexual addiction is catching society unawares. All around us marriages are beginning to fall apart; husbands are getting caught with pornography, in affairs, and visiting prostitutes.

On a more serious note, there is a proven direct correlation exists between crimes of rape, child abuse, and the physical abuse of a spouse, and the proliferation of pornographic materials in a community (Uniform Crime Report, 1990). One out of every six persons in our federal and state prisons is a sex offender, and sex crimes are second only to drug crimes.

What is the basis for Jesus’ position on pornography?

“But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery in his heart”.                Matthew 5:27-28

  1. Pornography offends against the virtue of chastity: each Christian must respect the sanctity of his own human sexuality. In marriage, the conjugal act ought to express that faithful, permanent, exclusive, self-giving, and life-giving love between husband and wife.
  2. Pornography immerses oneself in a fantasy world, withdrawing from reality. While genuine love always involves a self-giving of oneself for the good of others, pornography entices a person to withdraw into a selfish world of perverted fantasy which may later be acted out to the detriment of oneself and others. This problem has increased dramatically, since the Internet offers “virtual reality” sexual interaction.
  3. Pornography exploits oneself or exploits others in some way for personal pleasure or gain.

PERSUASIVE  PORNOGRAPHY

A young man hopes that once he is married, the desires for illicit sexual arousal will subside. But what becomes of his lust once he marries her? It does not disappear; it is foisted upon his wife. The pornography has trained him to react to the sexual value of a woman, and nothing else. He has trained himself to believe that women should be physically flawless and constantly sexually accessible. Even if he rejects this intellectually, the fact remains that his attractions and responses have been conditioned and shaped by warped, pornography-inspired fantasies.

The Cycle of Pornography or the Cycle of Temptation

“Each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”                                                                                                    James 1: 14, 15

Cycle of PornographyIt all starts in the strength of an over-desire that leads into enticement. Many of these desires lead us into a fantasy world looking for some form of relationship. In the fantasy world we are “admired and respected” by beautiful models. We may be looking for a form of refuge from the stresses of life where nothing is asked of you. We may wish to be rewarded or recognized.

Sexual Triggers, such as an attractive person of sex on the computer, start the process. Some triggers are not so obvious such as boredom or stress. This leads to enticement (the first tempting thought), which might be accompanied by an emotion such as frustration

Then there comes a state of conception when desire becomes action, which could be ritual or habitual. You convince yourself that what you are doing is “no big deal”. You are just going to see what is new on line. Then you get closer and closer to indulging yourself (“the birth of sin”).

 After this, the sin grows stronger. You get depressing thoughts such as, “there is no use in resisting this”. After we give in to temptation over and over again and moral brakes become weaker and weaker.

For many men and women who deeply struggle with sexual sin, a feeling of shame clings to them like a wet blanket and often become the biggest barrier against seeking help.

Finally we end up with the wages of sin: death is the consequence of sin. Yet, death isn’t the final stop of life; you still have an immortal soul that can suffer in hell or enjoy heaven: the all-satisfying beauties of Christ can be lost forever in the bondage of lust. Or they can be enjoyed forever in the purity of heart.

Why would I chase something that lasts a moment, when God is eternity and is the truth, Why would I sneak a peak for a moment, look at a woman lustfully for a second, it doesn’t last.

WHAT TO DO?

For those who have severe problems in breaking a habit of engaging in pornography or for those who are addicted, Sexaholics Anonymous is one answer to breaking their addiction: sex with self, promiscuity, pornography, adultery, unhealthy relationships, and erotic fantasy. Like most self-help programs, Sex Addicts Anonymous involves a twelve-step program.

PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE

The deliverance ministry should not be overlooked because JESUS CHRIST himself preached and demonstrated deliverance by casting out demons and healing the sick and delivering all who were oppressed of the devil.

(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, as you read this, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts. This I command in the Name of Jesus.)

Your Christian friend who is sinless can command these spirits to go back where they came from (the abyss) to be soon replaced with the Love of our Lord.

The short form is “In the name of Our Lord Jesus, I bind and deliver the evil spirits of lust and pornography and I command them to go to the abyss.” The remaining spirits are also delivered in the same manner as listed below.

Prayer of Deliverance

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

IMPERFECT WORLD

SO MANY TODAY FOLLOW THEIR OWN WILL.

Come and be My disciples, My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who believe in Me. In the message from the Gospel of Saint Luke, you have My words.

 If you wish to be My disciple, then you must deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow Me. By these words, I wish to call you not to follow your own ideas and objectives but come and do what I ask of you. I want you to follow the mission I gave you knowing in doing My will you will be saved.

So many today follow their own will, which is often influenced by the evil one. He calls them to pursue money and to enjoy all the pleasures of the world. He induces you to drink alcohol and to take drugs and to follow the pleasure of the flesh. In doing this, you are living far from Me and you are destroying your life.

If I have called you to the married life, then follow what My Church teaches you. Live in love with your partner and never say yes to abortion for this is the killing of your son or daughter, the great gift which My Father gave you. You are to love every child from the moment of conception and never entertain the idea of abortion for it is a horrible sin, the killing of a innocent child.

All have to work and follow all the rules you were given to do and all you were asked to do. If you are asked to be celibate then ask Me for the graces you need to live a celibate life and I am your example for I lived a celibate life when I was on earth.

Be a person of prayer and come to Holy Mass every Sunday and during the week if it is possible. I extend My hand to you so take it and walk with Me every day and do not be afraid to carry your cross and I will help you to carry it. I love you with all My heart.”

DELIVERANCE FROM LUST AND PORNOGRAPHY 2

THE AMAZING MAGIC OF DELIVERANCE 2

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. 

GOD’S HEALING ASSURED 2

 HEALING?

 Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing.  They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress.  Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible.Chinese Religion God

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

OUR LIFE IN HEAVEN

OUR LIFE IN HEAVENA NEW LIFE IN HEAVEN

We tend to look at the resurrected life in heaven as a great mystery. Yet, the resurrected life is to be found in the present moment.

When the fetus leaves the womb, we call this birth. Once born into the world, the child is more fully alive in new way of living. In the same way, it would make no sense for people of this world not to be born into eternity. The swift aging of our bodies tells us that our hold on earthly life is short.  Our bodies speak to us about impermanence. This tells us that we may not be really at home in this world: our destiny lies elsewhere.

Perhaps the most powerful image of transformation in nature is the butterfly, which is really a transformed caterpillar. Caterpillars appear to have a fairly pleasant life feasting on an almost inexhaustible salad bar right under their feet. One day the caterpillar spins a web around itself. Slowly a change takes place. Suddenly, the tomb-like cocoon opens to reveal a creature that has been totally transformed. The butterfly actually looks quite beautiful. Now instead of only a view from the surface of the leaves, the butterfly sees the entire garden.

LOVING PERSON OF THE SAME SEX 2

loving same sex

WOMAN IS CREATED FOR MAN AND MAN IS MADE FOR WOMEN.

Man and women were not created as solitary beings but as the ones who would recognize each other as flesh of their flesh and bones of their bones, as the ones who are capable of friendship and total surrender to each other, as the ones who are capable of life-giving acts in its many forms. God intended complementary and interdependent relatedness of men and women. God ordered the right proportion so that not one of them would infringe improperly on another. Women are the other side of man, as complementary, rather than inferior.

Of course, man and woman in their sexual union and begetting of children can become co-creators with God. Their love and action can mirror the Love of God. They are to be partners like body and soul which God joined together as one. Yet, sexuality is often encountered as lust or abusive and not life-giving.

God also intended this union to strive to build a spiritual marriage. Couples with a strong shared faith do have an advantage over those who don’t. Husbands and wives who have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are in touch with the Life that pulses at the center of the universe in a way that others can never be.

EFFUSION: A YOUTH HAPPENING

 A YOUTH MISSION

Our poor parish priest has his hands tied. He doesn’t know how to attract the youth to his church.

EFFUSION YOUTH

The most important element is prayer. We would ask all the elders of the church to pray and fast seriously for a new Pentecost experience, EFFUSION. The area of the church is blessed with holy water or holy oil in preparation for this Event.

EFFUSION YOUTH HAPPENING

The other proviso is that the parish has to encourage at least six youth in a team with a youth minister or youth leader. This team will continue the missionary work in the parish after the EFFUSION Event.

LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD

The world is not moving in a great direction. Yes, the world is a mess in a hundred different ways every day. Most people don’t believe that it is possible to change the world.

But it can. How? The changes will not come from government, not from the economy or big business, not from science. The best group of people who are positioned to make a difference is Christians. How is this possible? It is simple but not easy.

Change the World

We will change the world by behaving like Christians. There are over two billion Christians in the world and they have a tremendous influence.

Part of the problem is that Christians have blind spots. They don’t see things as they really are. They don’t see our marriage, our career, our business, our personal finances, our children’s school and even our own church as it really is. We still have biases and prejudices. Jesus wants to liberate us from our blind spots and to help us see things as they really are and to see ourselves as we really are.

We actually fool ourselves. We never admit to ourselves that we are greedy. We never say that we like money too much. Even stingy people think that they are generous. So we don’t see ourselves as we really are. Continue reading LET’S CHANGE THE WORLD

THE ORTHODOX CATHOLIC UNITY 2

GEOPOLITICAL COMPETITION

Essentially the Orthodox Church shares much with the other Christian Churches. The Orthodox Church differs substantially in the way of life and worship.

 During the early Trinitarian and Christological controversies, after the patriarchs of Alexandria, Jerusalem, Antioch and Constantinople had succumbed to one heresy or another, only the papacy remained constant in witnessing to the orthodox Faith.

Historically, the formal parting between the Christian West and the Christian East occurred in 1054; to some extent it reflected cultural and geopolitical competition between the Greek-speaking “east Roman” empire, in other words Byzantium, and Latin-speaking western Europe where Roman authority had collapsed in the fifth century, but new centers of power had emerged. 

ORTHODOX CATHOLIC UNITY

Constantinople came to regard itself as a “Second Rome” after the fall of the Roman Empire in the west, but after the city’s fall to the Ottomans in 1453, Moscow came to see itself as a “Third Rome.” The Eastern Orthodox communion bases its teachings on Scripture and “the seven ecumenical councils”.ORTHODOX CATHOLIC UNITY

BATTLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL 2

 GOD WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU.

BATTLE GOOD EVIL

I am Strengthening You Today for Jesus’ Work.

“I bless you, My brother and sister. 

It is time to advance the work Jesus has given you. 

The darkness that covers so many people has to be lifted.  My Son, Jesus, must be the center of every person’s heart because He is the light that eradicates all darkness. 

Satan has ensnared so many people in all parts of the world and even those within the Church founded by My Son. Satan’s hold on them has to be broken. 

It is easy today to make the wrong choices and to be led astray. How important it is for youth to be nourished in their growing years with a good knowledge of the faith, to form good habits and to remain close to Me through prayer.

Some youth in their search for meaning, turn to alcohol and drugs and become enslaved by these powerful stimulants.  Others give vent to their instincts especially their sexual instincts and this could destroy their future.  The evil one will lead them that way if they allow him to do so.

While he seems to triumph with so many willing helpers in his rage against Me, Jesus, through My power and My guidance, is going to overthrow the kingdom of darkness and He is going to bring about a new beginning. 

I am strengthening you today for this work. 

Always remain united to Jesus, your Friend.  I bless you and all My children.”
