Many, no, make that MANY Christian churches are offering Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University personal finances classes to their congregants. The main reason for that is because Ramsey insists his “students” adhere to Old Testament tithing. I’m all for helping people manage their personal finances with no ulterior motives, but that’s not the case with churches and Ramsey. They’re in symbiotic cahoots. A “ministry” that results in being able to purchase $16 million dollar mansions (photo above) with cash is a giant red flag. Count me out.
Heated debate continues within the “big tent” of the American Catholic church over U.S. President and church member Joe Biden’s unqualified support of the abortion genocide. Recent polls reveal 56% of American Catholics support abortion on demand.
Pandemic denial wasn’t/isn’t restricted to some evangelical pastors.
Roman Catholicism is ALL ABOUT its sacramental salvation system, whereby the sacraments are alleged to endow recipients with graces so that they are better able to obey the Ten Commandments (impossible!) in order to hopefully merit their way into Heaven. But Catholics haven’t had consistent access to their churches and the sacraments since the pandemic began in March 2020. Will God give them a pass because of this lack of access (I’m being facetious) or will some Roman Catholics begin to question their sacramental salvation system in light of the year-long inaccessibility?
- Pope Francis: Mass is never just ‘listened to.’ It’s ‘celebrated’ by all the faithful (not just priests)
Imagine going to an hour-long religious ceremony every week, fifty-two-weeks per year, for seventy-eight years (average U.S. lifespan), and the content of the accumulated 4000+ ceremonies is nearly-identical. That’s the “spiritual life” of U.S. Catholics. Despite the platitudes of popes, prelates, and priests in regards to the mass, Catholics who are honest with themselves know there’s not an hour of the week that’s more boring.
Since he was elected in 2013, progressive pope Francis has systematically neutralized his most-vocal conservative opponents in the college of cardinals, most notably Gerhard Müller, Raymond Burke, and now, Robert Sarah.
Bible-denying tares are preaching from pulpits.
Ah! I had wondered why Vanilla Coke, my favorite soda, was no longer stocked on our grocer’s shelves (see here) and now we know!
