Are You Born Again? Are You Saved?

Are You Born Again? Are You saved?

ProLifeCorner – Frank Munda-  Many of us have heard, or used the terms “are you born again”, or “are you saved”, and “have you accepted Christ as your personal Lord and Savior”? When we hear these terms or even use them ourselves, do we really think about what it means?  If I had a group of Evangelicals, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Catholics, etc. and ask the above questions, I more than likely would get different interpretations within each one of these groups. Christianity should not be a democracy where we get a consensus of the majority and therefore that is the truth, at least at that moment and within that particular group.

The purpose of this article is not to convert you, the reader, to any particular Christian belief. I do however believe that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ intended for us to be one. The unfortunate reality is we are not “one”, and that is something that you, myself, or anyone else can possibly  change. That peace, that unity, can only come through the power of the Holy Spirit and I long for that day. In the meantime, through our brokenness, through our division, can we at least build upon what we do agree on? That is, we love the teachings of Jesus Christ and we want to build our lives around those teachings. Continue reading

Pastor Warns: The United States becoming Like a Nazi Nation

Pastor Warns: The United States becoming Like a Nazi Nation

ProLifeCorner- by Frank Munda- 10-25-2015 – Pastor Timothy Barr warns us that we are becoming like a Nazi nation.

With modern communications I believe it would be almost impossible for someone not to be aware of the atrocities against mankind perpetrated by the heartless, barbaric, corrupt, and inhumane corporation called Planned Parenthood.

How many times have you heard, or possibly even said yourself, where was the church in Nazi Germany? Where was the church in defending the Jews and the millions of non-Jews led to slaughter in the Nazi concentration camps? It is an historical fact that those who spoke out against the Nazis and their crimes against humanity ended up in the concentration camps, just like the Jewish people did. Heed my warning.  Years from now someone will be asking you, what did you do to stop the slaughter of the over 56 million babies in the United States since 1973? What did you do to stop the government sponsored slaughter of these babies? What did you do to stop the government sponsored euthanizing of the elderly and infirm, the poor and unwanted through government sponsored healthcare? What did you do to defund this hideous, sadistic, Hitler like corporation called Planned Parenthood? What did you do to remove corrupt politicians, who accept millions of dollars in campaign funds thereby buying their political support for Planned Parenthood?. What will your excuse be? I did not know?  That excuse will not stand up before God or before man.

This generation will be held accountable for its apathy and what it fails to do to stop these crimes against all of mankind.

I will try to summarize some of the thoughts of Pastor’s sermon in my own words . He tells us don’t be silent; our silence is saying it is okay to kill a baby in the womb. We as a society need to stand up. Why did Hitler get away with what he did?  Because good people remained silent. Don’t be silent, educate yourself on this issue.  Abortion on demand hurts women; it treats them like an object to the point that now the rate of rape is on the rise. We need to stand up for the dignity of women and the dignity of babies. America needs to rise up before we become another Nazi society, if we are not there already. Continue reading

NY Times Survey of Catholics

Update-  March 6, 2013 – Bill Donohue comments on some of the findings from a survey of self-identified Catholics as reported in today’s New York Times: Whether someone who “attends Mass a few times a year or never” can be considered Catholic is debatable, but at any rate those responses make for interesting reading when compared to those who “attend Mass weekly.” The majority of weekly attendees have a favorable view of Pope Benedict XVI; only a quarter of those who rarely attend feel the same way. Regarding recent papal events, 72% of weekly attendees have been closely following the news stories, while only 35% of those who rarely attend have been doing so. Continue reading
