  • The Sword of Jesus
    Reference: Luke 12:49-56 The struggles over whether or not Biblical authority is determinative for current Christian belief or is only advisory has resulted in splits across many denominations. The cry of “schism” has been raised, accusing many who have left a denomination of dividing Christianity, “leaving the Church.” Yet splits and divisions are hardly new. […]
  • The Sin of Anxiety
    Reference: Luke 12:27-40 Cielo Vista shopping mall in El Paso is well known to me, a place I have been a dozen times, a friendly, cheerful and safe locale to take care of my shopping needs. To see it on the national news as a place of horror and tragedy is deeply disturbing, as I […]
  • Orientation: Life After Death Right Now
    Reference: Colossians 3:1-17 Orientation literally means to face east. In liturgical churches, the altar always faces east (even when it doesn’t: “liturgical east” is a mystical concept defining “east” as wherever the altar is facing, but ideally, this is also geographical east). For the Christian, orientation is, as St. Paul puts it, to “set your […]
  • To Stay the Course
    Reference: Colossians 2:6-15 It is hard to know which is worst: the stereotype of Christians held by many of our “secular” neighbors, or the self-appointed spokespersons for the Christians. St. Paul would have understood. The Roman Empire in which he lived resembled our modern scene, perhaps more than any other time before or since. In […]
  • Every Creature Under Heaven
    Colossians 1:21-27 Body and soul. The way in which the relationship between the spiritual and physical aspects of mankind has been perceived over the centuries creates something of a tangle. Western thought tends to see these two entities as separate, or in the case of materialists, as body without soul. To the latter, soul describes […]
