The Church of Jesus Christ

To love and believe in Jesus is to obey Him.1 When one searches the Scriptures, it is readily apparent that Jesus established a Church founded on the rock of Peter,2 a corporeal and spiritual community to which all His followers were to belong.

Masterpieces are Made by Many

He who has himself for a guide has a fool for a disciple. I had a lapsed Catholic friend who expressed skepticism about our devotion to saints, because she had read that it originated in the worship of pagan gods. Well, if you walk into the Pantheon in Rome today, you will see that it […]

Read the Bible By Going To Mass

I remember an impactful talk given by Dr. Scott Hahn in an Atlanta home a little less then a year ago. In it he compared Catholics’ knowledge of the Bible to children’s knowledge of the streets in their hometown, not so much by knowing the street names, but from the memory of walking through them […]

Forget Islam – Christianity Is Violent

Following the Paris and San Bernardino attacks, we are once again embroiled in the perennial question of whether or not Islam is a religion of violence or a religion of peace. The question is often posed as if other world religions are more passive, even pacifist, and do not pose the kind of existential threat […]

What’s Your Witness?

This morning I witnessed the coolest thing. My husband and I were on our way to work, winding through the back roads when we saw a strange sight. There in the middle of a lawn was a circle of men in hard hats. Armed with chainsaws and surrounded by bucket trucks it was obvious they […]

Five Commonalities Between Christianity and Islam

Among all kinds of cultural, political, and interfaith dialogues, the one between Christianity and Islam is arguably the most interesting. Many of my friends from the Western world regard Islam as some kind of a mysterious, exotic, almost “unknowable” religion. However, some scholars, such as Hillaire Belloc, view Islam not as a totally separate religion, […]

False Greatness and its Remedy

Most of the time I assume myself to be a person falling into the same category Churchill found himself in when dealing with people he didn’t like: “He has all of the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire.” People rub me the wrong way, and they will continue to do so […]

Christianity, More Christianity, Less Christianity

The question to start with is this, “Is Christianity a noun or a verb?” In other words, is Christianity an action word or a label? Think about it. To the Evangelical and Fundamentalist groups, Christianity is not a Religion! These guys understand one language — Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) one of the anthems of the […]
