1/6: Often in discussions around Scripture, we encounter what’s known as a ‘false dilemma’ or ‘false dichotomy.’ This logical fallacy presents only two options when there are, in fact, more. #BibleStudy #LogicalFallacy
2/6: A ‘false dilemma’ assumes that only one of two alternatives can be true. This binary thinking neglects the possibility of additional options, or that a spectrum of possibilities might exist. #FalseDilemma #CriticalThinking
3/6: Reconsider the glorification of God. Some might argue we should only glorify the Father and not Yeshua, His Son. This sets up a false dichotomy. Why? Because according to Scripture, both are glorified. See 2 Peter 3:18 for definitive proof. #GlorifyGod #PeterGlorifiesYeshua

1/15: Within Biblical theology, the teaching and practice of glorifying Yeshua (Jesus) is closely linked with glorifying God the Father. Let’s dive into this concept, while also examining the significant link between Yeshua and Moses in the Bible. #BibleStudy #MessianicJudaism
2/15: Yeshua consistently taught his followers to glorify God the Father. Yet, in passages like John 10:30 (‘I and the Father are one’) and John 14:9, he suggests that to know and honor him is to know and honor the Father. #BookofJohn
3/15: Shaul (Paul) and other New Testament writers also glorify Yeshua. In Philippians 2:9-11, for example, Shaul describes God exalting Yeshua and asserts that every knee should bow to him in ἐξομολογήσηται, lit. “confession of praise.” #PaulsLetters #NewTestament

Abraham fails to save the cities of #Sodom and Gomorrah

But did he fail?
Is hard work that does not yield the expected result a failure?

In this post I discuss the end of #Abraham's negotiation with #God in Genesis 18:29-33…

#TheHebrewBible #BibleStudy Image
#Abraham continues to negotiate with #God about how many righteous people will save #Sodom and Gomorrah. This finishes when Abraham realises that there are not enough #righteous people to save the cities. Was all his effort in vain?
Absolutely not. At minimum the #trial gave us a guide to how to run a just trial. It also taught us about #collateraldamage. But even more, as we will see soon, Abraham’s efforts saved Lot and his family.

Happy Sunday, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️
As we wrap up our series on “Forgiveness of Self”, we find ourselves in John 14.
John 14 deals with the well known truth of Jesus being “the way, the truth, and the life.” Internalizing this truth has far-reaching impact in the life of a believer.
Our focus text comes to us from verse 27. Here, Jesus bestows on us, His magnificent GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND. He tells us that though He must physically depart the Earth, He’ll LEAVE HIS OWN PEACE with us.

Happy Saturday, beloved family! I hope your weekend has been off to an excellent start! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus text for today, comes to us from Romans chapter 8, which focuses on life in the Spirit.

In verse 1, we have THE blessed assurance from God, that there is indeed NO CONDEMNATION FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
To be “in Christ Jesus” means that He dwells within us, & us within Him. We are ONE.
So, by sending His own son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins, God made sure that there is NO CONDEMNATION for us.

Blessed Friyay morning to you all, beloved children of God! 🌅☀️❤️
Our focus today will be within 1st John , chapter 3. This chapter deals EXCLUSIVELY with our identities as children of God. We are encouraged to strive to be a people of ethical integrity & to live a life that is reflective of our spiritual identity.
In verse 20, we are reminded of the truth that God is actually GREATER THAN OUR HEART. People of God, this is a quite profound assertion! 🤯🤯🤯

Good Morning, Apples of God’s Eyes!
Today’s focus text comes to us from Exodus 34. This chapter deals with God’s renewal of his covenant with the Moses & the people of Israel.
In verse 7, we see God’s character ever so clearly. He states that He keeps His steadfast love & covenant THROUGH A THOUSAND GENERATIONS. Beloved people, that is a LONGGGGGG TIME! Who among us can fathom A THOUSAND GENERATIONS??

Happy Wednesday, beloved children of The Most High God. 🌅☀️❤️ Image
Today’s focus text comes to us from the book of Isaiah, chapter 54. Isaiah 54 focuses largely on God’s everlasting love for ALL of His people & how this love HEALS ALL our sorrows. This, however, hinges on our CHOICE to abide in Him, on HIS terms, & not on our own.
Isaiah 54:10 paints a glorious picture of God’s steadfast love for us! 😍
Can you imagine mountains departing & hills being removed? What a sight that would be! How intense would that be?
Is it even likely that such a thing could happen?

1. On the Nativity of StJohnTheBaptist:

~thread, from the CCC~


“You shall not commit adultery.”

[see also Mt 5:27-28] #Bible

2. “Love is the fundamental and innate vocation of every human being” (FC 11).

By creating the human being man and woman, God gives personal dignity equally to the one and the other. Each of them, man and woman, should acknowledge and accept his sexual identity.
#men #women
3. Christ is the model of chastity. Every baptised person is called to lead a chaste life, each according to his particular state of life.

Chastity means the integration of sexuality within the person. It includes an apprenticeship in self-mastery.

By Augustine Guillerand, Carthusian

1. Prayer is the intimate conversation of the soul with God, Who dwells within it. But, in order that prayer be really such, it is necessary to “close” the door #God #prayer #Bible
2. to the senses – external and internal – to everything which is created, so as to “enter” in such way into the intimate sanctuary of one’s own heart and there find God alone.

Prayer is, as it were, being alone with God.
3. A soul prays only when it is turned towards God, and for so long as it remains so [irrespective of how many people are around]. As soon as it turns away, it stops praying. The preparation for prayer is thus the movement of turning to God and away from all that is not God.

You have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.

But I say to you not to resist evil: but if one strike thee on thy right cheek, turn to him also the other (Mt5:38-42 #HolyMass #June15 #Gospel) ~ DouayRheims #Bible #JesusChrist #BibleVerses Image
And if a man content with thee in judgment, and take away thy coat, let go thy cloak also unto him.

And whosoever will force thee one mile, go with him other two.

Give him that asketh of thee and from him that would borrow of thee turn not away. (Mt5:38-42) #Jesus #Christians
1. (From the footnotes: "'Not to resist evil,' &c.
What is here commended, is a Christian patience under injuries and affronts, and to be willing even to suffer still more, rather than to indulge the desire of revenge:

1. Think nothing of the hatred of the world, if Jesus Christ was treated as a madman, it is no surprise that His followers are likewise treated.

#JesusChrist #Christian #ChristiansOnTwitter #CatholicTwitter #books #Bible
2. The world is mired in malice, friendship with it means enmity with God, an if you follow the world, you too will become worldly with the worldly... therefore despise it all, so as to be able to say with St Paul, the world is dead to me and I am dead to the world.
3. Scorn the world with all your soul, live according to the true doctrine of the Heart of Jesus. And what is that doctrine? It can be wholly understood through the eight beatitudes.
