Celebrating Christmas without Christ

Celebrating Christmas without Christ

What is Christmas without Jesus? Although Christmas is the most celebrated holiday in the world, not everyone has heard the story of Christmas.

Is God Partial?

“I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.” Lev. 26:12 The gods of the nations are terrorists and their worshipers are in constant dread and fervently work hard to appease them so that they do not get chastised. Such gods are never compassionate, they do not forgive and are never just and fair. […]

The Gospel of St. John

A Biblical History The Gospel according to John (Greek: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην) is quite different in character from the three synoptic gospels. It is highly literary and symbolic. It does not follow the same order or reproduce the same stories as the synoptic gospels. To a much greater degree, it is the product of a developed theological reflection and grows […]
