An Agreement

Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.  The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.  Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, …

Confessions

I sat there in the confessional booth wondering if I was committing blasphemy. I was a priest, yes but I was also a man and I was doing something which the Bible says only God should be doing--forgiving sins. The only people I should be forgiving are those who have wronged me. That's what it …

The Senior Party

The sun was setting when Shiloh arrived at the school. The parking lot was filled with cars and cars were coming and going as parents dropped their teenagers off at the front of the building. Her father gave her and with her friends Carla, Patricia and Dawn a ride over. "I'll pick you up at …

Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

I opened the Bible and read John 10:33; Mark 2:7 and Luke 5:21. There were two definitions for blasphemy. The first was, when the religious leaders accused Jesus, being a Man making Himself God and the second was when He forgave the paralytic of his sins. According to the scriptures, anyone who tried to do the …

Better than Nothing

He tried to concentrate on the passage he was reading but he couldn't. Why didn't Mrs. Siri's grand-daughter, Clara address him as, "Father"? Everyone else did, even those who weren't of the Catholic faith. It really bothered him. She didn't call him anything. Perhaps he should talk to her grandmother about it the next time …

No Fear

There is no fear of death nor the grave for the faithful who are alive in Jesus and those who have fallen asleep in Him. For it was He who said, "I was dead, and see, I am alive forever and ever; and I have the keys of Death and of Hades" (Revelation 1:18). When …

Domestic Discipline

What is Domestic Discipline? Is it a more politically correct term for "wife spanking"? Until recently, I didn't know that this sort of lifestyle existed. I was shocked by the number of people who are practicing it, including Christians. One article described it as a movement in the Christian community. What is Domestic Discipline and …

Salvation Comes With Trust

“Salvation that comes from trusting Christ-which is the message we preach-is already within easy reach. In fact, the Scriptures say, "The message is close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart." “For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him …
