Winning on Abortion; Losing on LGBTQ

by Steve Ray on September 30, 2018

According to recent surveys it looks like we’re losing the war an LGBTQ. Here is a survey of the major religious institutions and their change and acceptance between 2007 and 2014. The trend is not good.

St  Paul wrote,

Rom 1:26  For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

St. Paul also wrote in Sacred Scripture,

1 Corinthians 6:9–10: Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 5.24.18 PMThe Christ Our Life Conference invited me to come to the Wells Fargo Conference Center in Des Moines Iowa to give two talks to 10,000 good Catholic folks. I will be joining Matt Fradd and Bishop Baron.

My talk on Saturday is a new talk for me. It will give evidence for the truth of Christianity. It is entitled “The Shroud of Turin: God’s Love Letter Written in Blood.”

My second talk is on Sunday which is a punchy talk entitled “Swimming Upstream: Living a Catholic Life in a Pagan World.”

Excited! Visit https://www.christourlifeiowa.com/

Is Mormonism Christian?

September 21, 2018

The simple answer is NO! Not even close to Christian. To start a new religion by stealing the terminology from an established religion and then redefining the words does not make the new religion the same as the religion they cannibalized. Mormonism’s theology is strange, completely new and foreign to early Christianity. They never tell […]

September 20, 2018

If Pope Francis were to teach that capital punishment is “absolutely” immoral, he would be contradicting the teaching of scripture, the Fathers, and all previous popes, and substituting for it “some new doctrine.” June 7, 2017 Joseph M.
