One of our readers asked a question about the commentary two weeks ago that should be answered: You wrote . . . : “Adam, as head of the human race, chose to reject God knowing it would be the cause of death spiritually and physically for himself and all posterity.” I can’t recall any other writings that say Adam knew the effect of his sin would pass to all his posterity, and for my own information I’m just wondering if you can provide me with a reference source. Thank you!Continue reading →
Impugning the known truth is a mortal sin against the Holy Ghost
The definition of Sede Vacante is not defined correctly. It is an adopted word to explain an empty chair as a result of a death or resignation of a pope. The problem with this definition alludes to the state of the church to be headless. Our Lord said “Thou art Peter . . . . and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” This implies that no matter what happens to the pope there will always be someone to act in the place of the pope who will run the church until another pope is elected.

It is more than twenty-five years since we were startled by strange and unsettling pronouncements from Rome. We were now to have a “dialogue” with the leaders of hundreds of erring sects.

Radical changes in the Mass and in the forms of the Sacraments followed, and in the teaching manuals. The infallible, the indefectible Church had admitted herself to have been mistaken in past centuries. The bishops and parish priests said, “Nothing essential is being changed.” Was a greater lie ever spoken… Continue reading →
President Donald Trump wants to combine the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Labor into a single agency focused on workforce readiness and career development.
But the plan, which was announced during a cabinet meeting Thursday, will need congressional approval. That’s likely to be a tough lift. Similar efforts to scrap the nearly 40-year-old education department or combine it with another agency have fallen flat. MORE
Cuban lawmakers on Sunday approved a draft of a new Constitution that would seek to modernize the nation by recognizing the right to own private property and opening the door to the possible legalization of same-sex marriage, among other economic, political and social changes. MORE
Ironic that the Jews have done what Hitler did in Germany. The master race is a concept in Nazi and Neo-Nazi ideology in which the Nordic or Aryan racesare superior.
Israel’s parliament has passed a divisive law declaring that only Jews have the right to “national self-determination” in Israel, prompting angry accusations from Arab citizens that the government is formally codifying racism. MORE
Norbert Richter, Founder, Fire Your Congressman PAC joins Rick to share his thoughts on how it is that congress is so wildly unpopular yet incumbency has never been more protective and discuss what needs to be done to restore competition to our democracy.
Maybe this is why President Trump likes Russia so much, ha.
Sergey Avilkin, one of the hundreds of Russians now sheltering in Finland to avoid arrest as “extremists” in their home country, has no interest in politics or politicians and says that he has always followed the biblical injunction to “render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s.” MORE
