Vatican to display bones of St. Peter for the first time

The Vatican said it would display for the first time bones believed to be the mortal remains of St. Peter, the leader of Jesus’ 12 apostles, to mark the end of the Year of Faith, Nov. 24.

Archbishop Rino Fisichella, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting New Evangelization, wrote in Monday’s editions of L’Osservatore Romano, that the Catholic faithful making a pilgrimage to St. Peter’s tomb to mark the end of the Year of Faith will enjoy “the exposition … of the relics traditionally recognized as those of the apostle who gave his life for the Lord on this spot.” ...

Hey John UK, you're probably in bed by now, but yes I thought it was a much needed message for today. All of us need to remember that whatsoever we do needs to have the end of God's glory in mind. Our hearts need to be steeped in His Word and our treasures laid up above. We need as one great saint put it, eternity written on our eyes. True happiness is found in the way of holiness. Much of the popular preachers today make our Lord out to be an add on to bring peace and contentment to our lives. He is not just a part of our life instead He is to be our all and all, and reign supreme in our being. Much humanism prevades our society with the idea that man is the measure of all things. May God give us grace to remember that He resists the proud but gives grace to humble. Heaven is His throne the earth is His footstool and He still looks to him that is of a poor & contrite spirit and trembles at His Word. That is the blessing of our walk with God, He works in us both to do and to will of His good pleasure. We know not why He would deign to be so patient with our many faults and failures, but bless God He is ever molding us in conformity to His image. May God alone be praised!

US, did you see the main point of Paris's message, in regard to modern Christianity?

The Levite, servant of God, should have had as his main motivation, trust and obedience to God. But he was swayed from such a faith life, to regarding ten shekels a year as sufficient temptation to disregard God's calling and to feather his own nest, making things secure for his life, not really trusting God for his sustenance. Later he went even further, and allowed humanism to take him over.

Much of today's church is run along similar lines, with pastors being chosen, not for their great godliness but with economic considerations.

And how many sermons preached are the voice of God to man, how many are man's voice to man?

How many are even hearing from God today? Can a preacher say to his congregation, "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the church."

Is it possible that 98% of the remnant are taken up with humanism? With philosophy? With self-preservation? Instead of seeking the glory of God?

I'm pondering these things.

SF, I was contemplating this the other day, feeling rather discontent with things at the moment, when my oldest asked why I was sad. In those moments, we get to choose the way of God: joy and gratitude for what we have, even on the fifth glass of spilled milk, in as many minutes... The Spirit I believe longs to make us happy not because of some self-gratification for ourselves, but because I believe God IS joy, laughter, love and thrilling, while still being the God to be feared, held in reverence and regarded in awe at every moment.

"Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms." (James 5:13)

Correct on all counts.

The main difference is that God's people may be joyful, even if they are a North Korean Christian who is about to be shot.

But they will need to be filled with the Spirit till their cup runneth over.

Hardships test the reality of faith.

Galatians 5:22,23
Cool!

Now what do folks think if a revivalist puts his preacher's cloak on and says:

Joy = Fruit of the Spirit
Lack of Joy = ???????????

The Maths Teacher will say, "Well, formulaistically there can only be one answer."

Now I wonder how many folks acknowledge the need for a revival of genuine evangelical religion?

Or to bring it closer to home, I wonder how many of us would admit to a personal need of personal revival?

Or can we sing, "He walks with me, and talks with me, along life's narrow way", while knowing it is no longer like that.

Sure, there are some who say, "When I read my Bible it is God talking to me. And when I pray it is me talking with God." But then, that's just a Christian cliche with no biblical warrant. Those with cliches never seek revival because they think everything is fine in the house.

But if ever you once experience the immediate presence of Almighty God, there is nothing else in this whole world which will satisfy the soul. It wants God, and only God will do.

And christendom counterfeits abound.

Just sayin.....

It would have been good to talk to him afterwards about the focus of his message, for he may well have been thinking of the truly hedonistic charismatic movement, who really are mercenary, caring nothing for the glory of God.

But I agree with your post, that God desires us to be joyful, he does not accept our service if it not done joyfully, and when his Spirit indwells and fills us, then we are joyful because the Spirit is joyful. In fact, with God, there is joy here, there, everywhere. At his right hand there is perfect joy.

I also like the name Joy.

It was a good sermon, like John UK, read through it. He does not but almost borders on making Christians a dour bunch. Sticking with Scripture

John 15:11 "These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full."

I Peter 1:8 "Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory"

If God sees fit to give days of sorrow, and that is how He chooses to glorify His name in my life, then like Job would say blessed be the name of the Lord. Even our precious Lord was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.

But don't take away the joy we as Christians have in a relationship with the King of kings and Lord of lords. He promises peace and joy, shall we not claim it? Our own shortcomings bring us much sorrow, but as David we pray that the Lord will restore to us the joy of our salvation. Is this not what motivated the Lord on His journey to the cross? (Hebrews 12:1) It was how He endured the sufferings because it secured His bride, the one's in whom He sees the travail of his soul. Does not our taking pleasure in the triune God glorify His name? Are we not to rejoice that our name is written in heaven and to rejoice in the Lord evermore?

Lisa, great sermon indeed! We enjoy Reidhead's sermons often. Pastor Reidhead reminds us that it is God's will that matters in all things and we are of no account but what He makes us to be by His own might.

My dear husband also expressed that we would be remiss and ungrateful if we did not find happiness and joy in the lives God has given us, citing first the Genesis account of God giving Eve to Adam and following through the New Testament apostles who rejoiced in God's trials and their afflictions. We are to glorify Him AND enjoy Him forever- in no way are they exclusionary toward one another.

Thanks for the reminder to always be looking at nothing but Christ!

Lisa, Gil Rugh has several sermons on Resurrection. Lazarus, the young girl's, and even Paul might have "resurrected" the young lad, from the windowsill, but none of these are a Resurrection to glory. They all aged and died again. Anyway, one such sermon you might look at, The Resurrections in Scripture, which covers the period from Christ resurrection to the final resurrection.

I had to download the PDF in order to read the sermon, GS. Maybe you had the benefit of actually hearing it, with all the nuances etc. But it is nice that you came to the same conclusions. I well remember Brother Michael Hranek has been recommending this sermon 10 shekels and a shirt for many years, and I am amazed that I have only just read it. Still, all is in the sovereignty of God.

The sermon by Paris Reidhead on Humanism in the Church is most thought provoking and enlightening.

I find myself agreeing with it in most parts, and see some failures of mine own regarding the "blessing" and the motivation at back of it. So I shall personally be meditating on those failures and seek to get a right attitude concerning my raison d'etre.

There are parts I strongly disagree with, simply because scripture does give us just cause to seek the joy which Jesus promised. In John 3:16, it would seem that God desires to bless the man by giving him eternal life and felicity, simply for trusting in his Son. Other places has him promising joy to those who obey him. Now Paris does not deny this, but claims that there is a greater motivation behind this, namely, that God should be glorified, and that man should not be hedonistic, not a seeker after joy, even though that is a byproduct of glorifying God.

I loved the examples of John Wesley and George Whitefield's preaching, where sinners are convinced of being sinners, horrible in the extreme, for so denying God his rightful worship, praise and obedience. Yep, we need that preaching again today.

AWESOME SERMON LISA! I would enjoy a board wide discussion of Pastor Reidheads Sermon. However, its quite a jump from soda pop to milk let alone soda pop to meat

Also, I don't consider Christianity a philosophy. A philosophy is mans own feeble attempt to come to grasp the reason for his existence, ethical conduct (or lack thereof), knowledge, universal truths, etc, etc. Christianity is truth, and is revealed by God in his word. Not a concept thought of by man like a philosophy.

...see eye to eye on this. The previous posters have given great examples and two of them especially are great teachers with a firm understanding of biblical truths. You would do well to not lean so much on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and let Him direct your paths, not what you've learned as truth in a humanistic educational environment. Again, my prayers are for you!

Lisa said, "The prime philosophy of Christianity is to glorify god - full stop. Can yu see why this is why Anne asked why did god resurrect Lazarus and why it was a positionally incorrect question- it was irrelevant unless the philosophy of Christianity is humanism."

"Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord." (Job 1:21)

We are to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, even in the beyond-understanding times. My question was not a humanistic one, sister. It had more to do with the fact that I had been teaching phonics to a child who reminded me that one day we would cease our toiling and never be frustrated again - when I reach that place, I would prefer to stay there. But as I also stated, this was Christ's doing and since He can do no wrong, it was all right, all good and all holy. I want you to know that I pray you will find some authority with whom you can ask questions and learn humbly from. Personally, I stink at this, but as this is my husbands job (1 Crnths 14:5) he is learning long-suffering and patience thanks to me! (That was humor, by the way.). David was a humanist? God called him a man after His own heart (1 Samuel 13:14). Sister, we are never going to

What is the chief point of christianity or mans chief role in Christianity, is it to enjoy god or to glorify god???!!
Why not both?

The word "enjoy" is translated from the Greek word "echo" which appears 724 times in the NT meaning....

I. to have, i.e. to hold

II. to have i.e. own, possess

III. to hold one's self or find one's self so and so, to be in such or such a condition

IV. to hold one's self to a thing, to lay hold of a thing, to adhere or cling to

Sort of hard to glorify God if you don't have/possess Him.

Don't let the biblical meaning of "enjoy" be lost to the heathens, Lisa.

1. To receive pleasure or satisfaction from.
2. To have the use or benefit of: enjoys good health.
