Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus

  Stand Up, Stand Up For Jesus August 14, 2012 By Rebecca Hamilton 66 Comments What would it take to make you deny Christ? Would you deny Jesus to save your life? Would you deny Him to save your child’s life? What would it take for you to turn your back on Jesus? Christians die for their faith […]

My Heart Aches for America

America suffered another tragic shooting today. The Reverend Billy Graham published a letter to America a few weeks ago that seems almost to speak of it when he says, “My heart aches for America.”  Here’s an excerpt of what he wrote: Some years ago, my wife, Ruth, was reading the draft of a book I […]

WordPress to Patheos, Oh My!

Dear Friends: If all goes well, Public Catholic will start publishing through Patheos on Monday, August 6. As to what happens if things don’t go well, I’m kinda clueless. I have never done anything like this before so it’s a learn-as-you-go and hope-you-get-it-right process. I’ve been told that the experience will be seamless for people […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 6. Preach Christ = Preach Christ Crucified

Where there is no vision, the people perish.    Proverbs 29: 18  … and he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.     Mark 6: 34 For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 5. Hate-Voting = Using the Devil’s Weapons Instead of the Armor of God.

Hate-voting for Christ is an oxymoron if there ever was one. Hate-voting is the fine art of defaming the people you disagree with in order to punish, diminish and hurt them. Hate-voting destroys your Christian witness. When you say you are a Christian, other people will judge Jesus by you. When you spout a steady stream […]

Foot of the Cross

Peter Wiebe’s blog, Threshold of Heaven, takes readers to the foot of the cross. Peter lost his precious little boy, Jesse, to cancer a year ago. Threshold of Heaven is a tribute to Jesse and a searingly honest account of the hardest grief any person can know; the loss of a child. Peter’s posts make […]

Christianity changing lives of India’s ‘untouchables’ :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)

Christianity changing lives of India’s ‘untouchables’ :: Catholic News Agency (CNA). I think we need a break from thinking about America’s current political morass. This story of how Christianity is affecting the untouchables of India, especially the women, is a present-day example of how Our Lord lifts people out of degradation. We are called to […]

Stop Slogan-Voting. Stop Hate-Voting. Stop Being Manipulated. Part 1: Your Vote = Their Power

Your Vote = Their Power  Politics is about power. The two political parties are not political parties as we once knew them. They are consortiums of special interests. They operate on behalf of these interests for one purpose: to get and keep power.  Everything else they say is a lie.  The next time you feel […]

Pray, Study, Take Action for Religious Freedom

This is a link to the story in our local newspaper about yesterday’s Rally for Religious Freedom OKC. If you have time, take a moment and read the nutso comments of the Christian-revilers. Don’t let their invective make you unhappy or angry. Just take a moment and pray for their conversion. God loves them just […]

A Whole Lotta Drinkin’ and Druggin’ Going On

Raise your hand if you have a family member or friend with drug or alcohol problems. Are your hands at your side? If they are, think carefully. What about that cousin no one talks about? You know the one; the family embarrassment that you haven’t seen for years but that you know is out there […]
