Just one of the reasons I love Nicodemus.
“It truly a shame that in the wake of the most recent terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California, that the left is calling it an issue of gun control, rather than calling it what it is. What happened in San Bernardino is a terrorist attack perpetrated by radical Islamist.”
“I am also appalled by the left saying that the various calls for prayer by people of faith isn’t enough. All of those who said that prayer isn’t enough, I have one question for you, how much time have you spent in prayer asking for God to soften the hearts of the Islamic terrorist? How much time have you spent on your knees asking God to bring this to an end? You can’t complain that prayer isn’t working if you are not actually praying yourself”
“The Bible is clear that in Deuteronomy chapter 32, one person praying can put a thousand dark angels to flight; two people praying fervent prayers can put ten thousand to flight, so imagine the power of all the people of God praying to God for peace and for the welfare of this nation.”
“If you haven’t tried prayer, don’t knock it.”

On Monday I was asked if I would be willing to appear on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly. I was asked to be on the Friday night show which would be an election critique and recap featuring pundits and regular Americans. I usually hate appearing on any sort of panel discussion. For evidence of that, one need look no further than my last appearance on Sean Hannity’s show (but we don’t talk about that anymore).
However, doing the Kelly File was enjoyable. It’s very seldom that I go on television and I feel like there actually is iron sharpening iron. However, that’s exactly what happened. It’s usually punditry and sound bites. I don’t actually recall what was said on the air and what wasn’t, as Megyn encouraged all of us to stay engaged through the breaks and that’s exactly what happened.
She apologized to me for not getting to the issue of faith during our discussion, but I understood. However, I do hope there are more conversations about the role and importance of faith as we get closer to the election, while attacks on Christianity increase.
It is an important topic.
There are organized individuals in the country that want to rip up every cross by its roots and throw it in a wood pile for burning, be they secularists, atheists or radical Islamists. I would like to see this crucial matter given more consideration, not just in the political discourse, but in the hearts of everyone who considers themselves a Christian or a person of faith. In fact, it’s not merely an important topic. It’s a topic with grave implications.
This is the first story I saw, when I turned on my Computer this morning…
“ISIS kidnaps more Christians. When will we put an end to this madness?”
As the chairman of In God We Trust, I will continue to fight, not just for the right of Christians to exist in America, but to remind people that the bounty of America comes from our creator.
“… some of the animals remembered–or thought they remembered–that the Sixth Commandment decreed ‘No animal shall kill any other animal.’ And though no one cared to mention it in the hearing of the pigs or the dogs, it was felt that the killings which had taken place did not square with this.” George Orwell, Animal Farm, Ch. 8
Policy aside, the Supreme Court of the United States is behaving in the most capricious manner. I understand that most American have no understanding of what our Constitution and the Bill of Rights say, which is why no one is appalled by the whimsy of SCOTUS.
We are truly living in an Orwellian nightmare where his hyperbole is becoming our reality. Big Brother is watching everything we do. Now we have evolved into Animal Farm situation where our post literate culture is fine with the government redefining itself by fiat.
Why is this ok with everyone? Is our Constitution and the separation of powers just a historical curiosity from America’s past?
Delivered by Archbishop Council Nedd II at St. Alban’s Anglican Church on the First Sunday After Ascension
“… The Comforter is how Jesus describes the Holy Ghost. And Jesus chose the word “comforter” to describe the Holy Ghost because Jesus knew precisely what was in store for the new Christians. He goes on to warn them that they are going to be expelled from the synagogues. Worse than that, people will try to kill the Christians, solid in their belief that they are doing God a favor…”
It’s all very prophetic, but it really doesn’t deal with the event we are actually commemorating, which is Jesus’ ascent to heaven, and the apostles’ reaction.
The apostles’ reactions immediately prior to the Ascension tell a significant story. They illustrate with crystal clarity the stubbornness with which we subordinate God’s agenda to our own, and we do this without actually realizing it. Today’s Gospel provides a very useful contrast between what Jesus actually said at the Last Supper, and what the apostles thought they heard. This Passover meal was Jesus’ last opportunity to prepare the Apostles for the ordeal to come…”
