clarification I was agreeing with your conclusion, not taking you to task. I apologize for any misunderstanding. My initial reaction to hearing that the vial had been taken from a place that regularly "offers up Christ as a victim" made me smile. While I am very aware that people are naive or uneducated in regards to the mass, I also know that except for the grace of God, there go I. It really does sadden me that so many can't see the obvious and are so indoctrinated in their traditions. (I'm speaking of catholicism). I'm not condoning theft but it is a vile vial, after all..cherishing dead man's blood. The only blood that we need rejoice in, is the saving blood of our Savior.
funny story Mr. Hammack's conclusion is sound;relics and idolatry do go hand in hand. I guess pope john paul has left the building? :)
I don't mean to be insensitive but keeping the vials of blood of idolized men is vile. Of course, offering Christ up as a perpetual victim isn't too swift either. I realize but for the grace of God, there go I, but the subtlety of sin is gone. We are so desensitized. The obvious escapes us.
Not surprised Thanks for commenting on this story!
As a former RC I can tell you first hand that most RC do worship and venerate relics.
I praise my Lord and Saviour for redeeming this sinner by His precious blood.
To God be the glory!
Great Sermon! Hi Strat,
I am not afraid to use the word 'homosexual'. I live in the UK and in my experience the younger generation uses the word 'gay' in here. I personally use both. If you would like to get in touch and discuss the issue further, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you and have a god day!
Great Sermon! I don't think that this spoke to the issue. Why is foreign news important to us? I'm sorry to say that I agree with Mckenzie (I really don't want to agree to anything that man says). Like he said some of those people all over the world have been killing each other for centuries, so what has that go to do with us? Kevin maybe you could do a News in Focus program on this issue?
