The things said against catholics...

I know someone who left Catholicisn and has joined up with some end times rapture ministry run by a certain prophet who among other things prophesied the Asian Tsunami and many other things.

They didn't know I was catholic and when they found out they did what I can only describe as EEEUUUUW! and told me to get out, of the church, as fast as I can.

Catholicism is the only faith, apparently where people are allowed to sin intentionally because they can go to confession afterwards and have it all washed way then go do it again. In fact, the person used to hate attending mass without passing by the confessional.

Catholics can drink, party all night and go for mass in the morning. They can live life with one foot in the world and the other with God then make one turnaround in the moment of death and make it to Heaven................that is practically verbatim.

Now this is the intersting part I was told Catholics contradict the bible by worshipping engraven images( The cross apparently is also an engraven image here since ours have the figure of Jesus on them) that according to the bible God is Jealous and hates us for showing reverence for this engraven images and will punish us for four generations and reward those who dont for a thousand generations. Aha!

I have heard of people who have had their faith challenged before, it happned to me when I was a kid and my friends teased me for wearing the rosary but nothing of this magnitude.

While I pray for my person I also pray for myself and my brothers and sisters un faith? Questions: Do I give the church, the faith a bad name? Do I abuse the grace and privilege of confession, of the Holy Mass, Do I make a mockery of the Holy Eucharist?

Peter Son of John do you love me?, Peter answered Yes Lord you know that I love you"
Feed my sheep.

From what I gather Peter sounded a bit flushed and embarased at the directness of our Lord but he did live his loove for the Lord and watch over his sheep.

The question for me and you is Do you love me? If your asnwer is Yes Lord I love you, his response is "follow me."

I pray for purity in my desires and in my actions Lord May I never desire and anything that mocks the great privileges you offer me in the Sacraments.

The drinking question is one that will haunt Catholicism to the end of time but I pray for the lord's grace that especially young cathlics might live and know in fullness of Grace especially this one here.

Now about the issue of deathbed conversions C H Spurgeon the delightful preacher of what-century-was-that-again once gave a sermon where he preached that when Jesus walked into Heaven after his death the robber who repented was right alongisde him as the first convert of the Sacrifice of our Lord on the cross.

The Mercy of God is unfathomable, there are oceans and oceans of it and so long as we have breath even if it just one and we sincerely come to before Him and beg for Mercy we will be pardoned.

The truth is God cannot be deceived by a catholic, an Anglican, or atheist and any attempt is surely courting serious danger. In the imitation of Christ Kempis writes I am quoting from my head so dont mind if its a bit askew "Imagine if you cannot stand the wrath of your fellow man it terrifies you what about the wrath of God the Almighty ........"

I dont believe its catholics alone who ask people to find God even with their last breath but we all know God cannot be deceived you cannot live a life of sin cognizant of the Grace of God and the greeatness of his Love and Mercy and expect to be saved with a last minute whimper! God can see the heart!

In that case your knowledge of the existence of the mercy and Love of God and intetional disregard of the same till your moment of need so to speak will probably be your condemnation and that too will be great. Why because you know!

Kempis writes again that those who know will be judged more harshly .........

God cannot be deceived is the bottom line of the death bed matter as far as I am concerned.

Comments are more than welcome.

I dont look like a believer...hahahaha! Then Sob sob sob!

Sorry about the infrequency of posts I am in the middle of a very big project so a small prayer or big sometime wouild be extremely appreciated.

I dont know if any of you have ever been told that you dont look like a christian.

A friend found out I am the one behind this blog and he was dumbfounded!

"You!(apparently it's shocking) You believe in God?"

My first respnse was to laugh.

"Yes," I said. somewhat bemused.

"You dont look like a believer"

That was where the funny-ness of it all ended. And the gauntlet landed with a huge thud at my feet.

I dont blame my pal he has known me from my past and was probably not aware of my conversion, I thought everyone was, but his statement has made me examine myself on one of the most prominent issues of being a Christian.

Action!! If you love me you will follow my commands the Lord said ................following is all action.

I have talked a lot about my conversion and I think it's time I shut my trap and acted my age sorry faith!

Do you act your age, sorry faith?

Trust in the Lord with all your strength lean not on your own understanding!

Death a true gain!

No I am not a big fan of death even though this is my second post on the subject. I was at a funeral mass yesterday and the question I was left asking myself was: Is death a loss or gain.

As a christian there is only one answer to that question and I only pray that the good Lord may fill me and you with wisdom and grace to be prepared to gain eternal life when our time here is over.

Eternal life; best bottom line you can get!

My answer to Relativism

Happy New year to you all! May the Good Lord drench us with Grace and all the blessings from above this year.

Now I am sure as most of you have noticed the Holy Father and a lot of other people are real concerned about relativism as an impediment to the full experience of faith- it's joy and sweetness- and catholicism in particular.

Well I would like to promote a new thought today people I call it Pivotism. Pivotism is basically a modern day total dependence on Christ, a severe hunger for Him and His Love, a constant search for Communion with Him and a total openness to his will. After one has become a pivot one must then look for and being the pivot anchor at least one more Christian by means of inspiration , ministry and prayer to become a pivot as well.

For any Christian that feels inadequate in fervor, desire and hunger for Christ they must take the reverse route and seek out a pivot to anchor and inspire them to a highler level of intimacy with Christ.

In the end we all must be smalll pivots who are all anchored on the Ultimate and Eternal Pivot Jesus Christ son fof ther True Living God.

I know its an old version of be your neighbour's keeper but whats important is to giv e it an identity and practice.

I'd luv ya thots

You and I are Refugees

A deacon at my church who actually lives and works in Sudan put advent in a whole new light for me.

He says in the same way that most Sudanese people are refugees in other nations and yearning to go back home in peace and start to live their lives anew so are you and I as christians.

WE are refugees too here on earth and we have always to keep yearning to go back home that has to got be top of our yearnings.

Say a prayer for peace in war torn Africa today and pray that we may all end up home with the Good Lord for ever.

beatin tha devil down!

Excuse the forthrightness of the title but at this stage the honeymoon of my new friendhip with the Lord is kind of over. Temptations are flooding in and it does get tough..............more than I can tell you but I always try to think of how sweet it is now being in communion with the Lord and forever in the life to come and that's where my strength comes from.

That the good Lord is here with me and will not leave but will stand with me and hold my hand.........................

Dont laugh ladies and gents but I am learning a pivotal lesson of faith here it is never I or me or myself it's always We me and the Lord unless I take a U turn or a side street into sin. ( Stress the world always.)

The evil one has got unbelievable tenacity even with Jesus nigh he still tries to make a pass at me and that's ok because I am determined to avoid his kiss of death.

Thats my prayer today that I may steer clear of evil and in the sweet company of My Lord and Saviour especially this Advent season
