I was listening to a recent Andrew Klaven podcast and one of the questions from his mailbag dealt with Jesus and humor. Andrew didn’t have any examples that came to his mind but I for one have always considered this passage to be quietly funny. “Mark 6:48 (NASB) Seeing them straining at the oars, for […]

From Genesis 48, ESV: Then Israel [Jacob] said to Joseph, “Behold, I am about to die, but God will be with you and will bring you again to the land of your fathers. Moreover, I have given to you rather than to your brothers one mountain slope that I took from the hand of the […]

We pray. Christians pray to the triune G-d. This post is one in a series on Christian prayer, and how we learn to pray from the Lord’s Prayer. Today we come to the “petition” where we ask our Heavenly Father for stuff. We cannot help but be self-centered in wanting stuff, but as we learn […]

After a three-week delay, I am continuing my series on Christian prayer. Christians pray to G-d, and we learn how to pray from the Bible and from fellow Christians. Sometimes we even borrow from non-Christian sources. Our chief source is generally the Lord’s Prayer, because that is where Jesus taught His Disciples to pray. Here […]

Very early in my marriage, just over 25 years ago, my bride plunged cheerfully into contemporary Christian music. At that time, I was still squarely in the Jimmy Buffett phase of life and looking forward to many years of carefree, escapist music. In college (Go Hokies!), I had finally been exposed to some new sounds […]

Guys, it is time for a Ricochet vocabulary lesson. “Nard” was recently cited by a middle-aged American man as one of those antique words that nobody knows anymore. This only served to show that he is clueless. Nard is a word that is known to Christians and to most well-read women. So for the benefit […]

We are reviewing orthodox Christian teachings on how to pray by examining the Lord’s Prayer. In this week’s lesson we consider what it means to pray for G-d’s Kingdom to come. G-d’s kingdom is everything. He made the universe and everything in it. He made us and we belong to Him. So, why do we […]

Today, December 8, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, the solemn dogma declared infallibly by Pope Pius IX on December 8, 1854, in his Apostolic Constitution Ineffabilis Deus, that Mary was conceived without the stain of original sin. We declare, pronounce, and define that the doctrine which holds that the most Blessed Virgin Mary, […]

I do not understand you–at least on how Moses’ “Thus says the LORD,” being the Word of God, is different from Isaiah’s “Thus says the LORD,” being something less than Moses’. [Augustine in this post] Why does this matter? It is actually at the very heart of the Jewish/Christian divide: Do earlier sources trump later […]

Would that poet Theodore Roethke’s words were true for us now…with Islamic murder and mayhem loose in the world; 27 murdered in Libya for dramatic effect, as some kind of international tease, with smarmy White House spokesgals, cold-hearted swaggaring behind podiums, not to mention the president, underplaying horror, pretending even-handedness in the face of evil – root causes!
