Understanding the TimesWithout Truth... No One Matters
A Beautiful Song for a Beautiful Saviour
There was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon. This man was righteous and devout, looking forward to Israel’s consolation, and the Holy Spirit was on him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he saw the Lord’s Messiah. Guided by the Spirit, he entered the temple complex. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to perform for Him what was customary under the law, Simeon took Him up in his arms, praised God, and said:
Now, Master, You can dismiss Your slave in peace, as You promised.
For my eyes have seen Your salvation.
You have prepared it in the presence of all peoples—
a light for revelation to the Gentiles and glory to Your people Israel.
His father and mother were amazed at what was being said about Him. Then Simeon blessed them and told His mother Mary: “Indeed, this child is destined to cause the fall and rise of many in Israel and to be a sign that will be opposed—and a sword will pierce your own soul—that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” (Luke 2:25-35 HCB)
What a remarkable story to ponder this Christmas season. Continue reading.
State Actions Taken Aimed at Exploiting Children
What is it with some people’s governors? They seem to be really hung up on the sexual exploitation of children. At the very least, they are enabling people who are. Recently, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, and California Governor, Gavin Newsom, are both heavily involved in creating a very troubling environment for sexual predation of minors by adults. Northam has been promoting an initiative for sex texting with the Virginia Department of Health, cutely named “BrdsNBz.” Newsom will sign newly created legislation to remove the stigma of “consensual” sex penalties with a minor. Both developments are clearly aimed at children and minors, and their participation in sexual, or sexually related activity with adults. (Continued)
What Happens When We Speak Truth to Power
Who wouldn’t appreciate the admiration, “He spoke truth to power?” Speaking truth to power implies a willingness to rectify a wrong, and armed with honesty, possesses the courage to confront those of greater earthly status or power. These things are virtues, and they deserve our enthusiastic support.

A Catholic Priest Weighs in On Politics
Father James Altman calls out the hypocrisies of Church hierarchy and their destructive leftist politicization of the Catholic Church that has slapped faithful Catholics in the face and led many others astray. Altman also explains the basis of human nature and our purpose in life. In a powerful ten minute video produced by filmmaker Rebecca Brannon, Fr. Altman flatly declares, “You cannot be Catholic and a Democrat. Period.”
By August 30, over 1,070,283 people have watched and heard him say it! Please view this link. You will be astonished. But, be quick about it. His superiors have now taken taken steps to forbid him from further sharing his homilies online.
Look What Doctor WHO Is Saying Now!
“The World Health Organization’s special envoy on COVID-19 has urged world leaders to stop using lockdowns as the primary control method against the spread of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus.”
For specific details, read this amazing development as reported in The Epoch Times, October 11 by Ivan Pentchoukov, Senior Political Reporter.
Could President Trump have been correct all along about the devastation these lockdowns are having? It’s difficult to believe the science when the scientists can’t get it right the first time. Which leads us to make an important relevant point:
In most cases, churches quickly complied with the state government’s demands to close their doors to indoor activities and gatherings, because it was assumed this would prevent the contagion. Many churches are still severely limited to meeting indoors, and in some states they are not allowed to meet at all without suffering severe penalties and hardships. Under Federalism, no state can deny first amendment rights. It’s no longer about safety. It’s about scandal.
