    Sacred Sunday~Romans 13/Love Rules but Still Pay Your Taxes

    in Spirituality

    Happy Easter!!! Today we are reading Romans Chapter 13.


     Paul's spree of advice continues. Everyone should obey people in positions of authority. After all, all authority comes from God, so all the authority figures running around out there must have been hand-picked by God. Makes sense… sort of. That means if you go against someone in a position of authority, then you're really going against God. Remember that next time you throw paper airplanes at your Spanish teacher. Basically, Paul says, if you just keep walking the straight and narrow and don't step out of line you should be fine. If you do,  those authority figures have swords and they're not afraid to wield them. (Ironic historical footnote: about 10 years after writing this, Paul was executed by the Roman authorities. Wonder if that might make him revise his thoughts in this section just a little?) Same thing goes for paying taxes. Sorry, Tea Party and Henry David Thoreau—you've got to pay them. If you owe money to the government, fork it over. And if you owe respect and honor to people in positions of power, then start practicing your groveling now.  Don't walk around owing anyone anything. Period. Oh, except love. You should owe everyone love all the time. And pay it as often as possible. That's the essence of all of Jewish law anyway, love. Paul thinks the Ten Commandments can pretty much be boiled down to "Love your neighbor as yourself." It's really pretty simple, guys. The hour is at hand. Salvation is coming soon to a theater near you. Any minute now, Jesus is gonna come down from Heaven again and make some non-believers feel pretty darn foolish. Yup. He's talking about the second coming, folks. So let's all just be good little boys and girls so we can always be prepared for this. Basically just keep focused on Christ and do what's good all the time. Easy, right? Thanks to shmoop.com

    Sacred Sunday~I Corinthians Chapter 5/50 Shades of Corinth

    in Christianity

    Fifty Shades of Corinth. Speaking of doing bad stuff, Paul's been hearing some rumors. There's some steamy stuff going on in the bedroom, and he doesn't like it. He's heard that some guy is getting it on with his stepmom. Gross. It also happens to be against Jewish and Roman law. Paul wishes he were there in person so he could help, but never fear, all, he's there in Spirit. And he has so passed judgment on this guy in Spirit. This dude should be forced to live the rest of his life outside of the church. Basically, they're gonna throw him to Satan. Maybe if he suffers enough, God will save him in the end. Who knows though?  Paul is extremely annoyed at the Corinthians' lax attitude about this stuff. Don't they know that even a little yeast can make bread dough rise? Translation: one bad person can ruin a whole church. It's time to clean those mixing bowls and start a new batch of dough. We're living in Passover times, y'all! Jesus is the lamb that has been slaughtered, so start acting like it! Paul thinks they need to be celebrating with some nice pure unleavened bread, not letting that evil yeast creep into their midst. Harsh words, Paul. Paul says that he wrote to the church before and told them not to have anything to do with immoral people. Of course, they misunderstood this. It would be kind of impossible not to associate with anyone who had a history of doing bad things.  What he meant was, don't associate with other Christians who are immoral. Oh, good clarification. How do you know a fellow Christian is super-bad like this? Well, are they sexually immoral? Are they greedy? Are they an idolater? Do they verbally abuse others? Are they drunks? Are they thieves? Then you can just cross them off your list. Get them out of the church. Judge the heck out of them. (Hey, wait, Paul… didn't you just tell the Corinthians not to judge a little bit ago? Oh, never mind…) www.shmoop.com

    Sacred Sunday~I Corinthians Chapter 4/Fools For Christ

    in Spirituality

    Paul of Tarsus: Professional House Sitter

    The apostles are like house sitters taking care of God's place while he's temporarily out of town. Sure, you have to check the references for your house sitter, but other than that, you're good. And Paul's references—namely Jesus—are pretty ironclad. That's why the Corinthians shouldn't judge his work against the work of others. God has already vouched for him. It's not like Paul is never going to face judgment—but that, friends, is up to God himself. In short: don't do God's job for him, Corinthians. But then again, Paul tells them, maybe it's cool for you guys to judge in God's place because you're so amazing. Sarcasm alert! After all, the Corinthians are the greatest, right? They're rich as kings! They have power and wisdom and strength and everyone loves them! They're the best! (Not.) And the poor apostles—like Paul—are just poor and weak and hungry and thirsty and homeless and beaten and weary and… okay, we get it Paul.


    Daddy Dearest

    Look, Paul says, sarcastic comments aside, he's not trying to be a jerk. He doesn't want to embarrass the Corinthians or make them feel bad. Um, okay… He's kind of acting like their dad. Um, Paul, isn't that God's metaphor? Paul watches over them along with Jesus like a father. So do as he says, kids. Paul tells them that he's sending Timothy to Corinth so that he can remind the little children of the church how they should be acting. And if Paul doesn't hear a good report… well, then, he is going to have to come down there, young church! And he might be bringing his belt with him. Run, kids! Thanks to www.shmoop.com

    Sacred Sunday~I Corinthians, Chapter 2/What of Human Wisdom?

    in Christianity

    Happy Mother's Day! Especially to our Sacred Blessed Mother Mary. Today we are reading I Corinthians, Chapter 2.



    Paul tells us that when he came to Corinth, he wasn't some smart, smooth-talking guy.
    Actually, he was kind of weak and afraid and all-around pathetic. We're not sure Paul is giving himself enough credit here.
    The point is that Paul didn't try to appeal to them using human wisdom. He let himself be filled with the spirit and power of God. And who needs coherent sentences when you've got that?
    So the Corinthians learned about God not because Paul reasoned and argued them into believing it, but because they felt God through him.
    Nice humble brag, Paul.


    In the Know



    Besides, Christians don't need human wisdom. They have God's wisdom. It's waaaaay better, apparently.
    Just look at the people who run this world, Paul says. They're supposed to be "wise" and yet they put Jesus to death. Not such a smart move, guys.
    But Christians have the Spirit of God in them.
    That means they don't speak in terms that the rest of the world understands (Paul is probably referring to the practice of speaking in tongues, which can be pretty tough to understand).
    People who aren't living in the Spirit don't get this stuff. It just seems stupid or wrong to them.
    But, those who are in the Spirit know this stuff is right and from God. They don't answer to anyone or anything.
    They say that no one can know what God's thinking. But people in the Spirit do. They understand the mind of Christ. Whoa. Sounds like a pretty big responsibility. Thanks www.shmoop.com

    Sacred Sunday~Romans 15/Love One Another

    in Christianity

    Good morning! Today we are reading Romans Chapter 15.


    Really, Paul just wants all the Romans to live in harmony together and glorify God together without worrying about their differences. Remember, Christ is with the Jewish-Christians and the Gentile-Christians, too. So let's all play nice. Paul actually has a good feeling about the Romans. He knows they're upstanding people who are knowledgeable and can help each other do what's right by God. He's only written to them to tell them all this and to give them advice because of his special relationship with God. What can we say. The Big Guy loves helping Paul write all his correspondence. Not that's he's bragging or anything. Paul would only ever brag about all the good things that God has done through him. So modest. For example, Paul has won tons of converts through the entire Roman Empire, but that's all God's doing. He made that happen. Paul's not usually in the business of preaching about Jesus where people already know him. He also doesn't usually come into a church community he didn't found, like the one in Rome, and start handing out advice. No, never. That's why he hasn't been to see the Roman Christians in person yet. He's been meaning to, but there are just so many non-believers who need to hear the good news first hand. Paul's got a busy schedule. But now he's fresh out of non-believers to convert in the area, so he's going to head over to Rome soon and stay a while on his way to preach the gospel in Spain. Oh, bull fighting? Not, quite. Before that, Paul has got to make a quick pit stop in Jerusalem. The folks in Macedonia and Achaia have taken up a nice collection for the poor there and he's gonna drop off the money. Mission possible! Special thanks to www.shmoop.com.

    Sacred Sunday~Romans 14/Judge Not of What Food They Partake!

    in Paranormal

    Good Morning! Happy Easter to all the Orthodox Christians!  Christos Anesti! We are reading Romans Chapter 14.


    There's more from our favorite lecturer…Paul! If people don't have a strong faith, then by all means, invite them over. But don't do it just so you can start a huge argument with them. Sounds like Paul has been to a Thanksgiving dinner or two. For example, some Christians will eat anything at all, even foods that other Christians consider unholy (like non-kosher foods or anything that's been sacrificed to the Roman gods). But it's silly to make a big deal about what other people are eating. God is totally fine with all these eating practices and you should be, too. The same problem happens with days of the week. Some people think one day is the best day to honor God, while other people don't care. So it's all fine. Eat what you're gonna eat, honor God when you're gonna honor him. It's really all okay. Look, it's not about us, Paul says. Jesus died and rose again. Do you really think he cares about who's right when it comes to what food you're eating? He's got bigger fish to fry. So there's no reason to be passing judgment on each other because everyone is going to have to answer to Jesus one day. Yeah, let him sort it out. Paul doesn't personally think that there are foods that should be put on the "Do Not Eat" list, but he won't fret if other Christians do. Just trust in God. If you think God wants you to lay off the booze, then do it. If you think God is fine with you firing up some pork chops, then by all means. But really, guys, Paul tells them. Let's not destroy the kingdom of God over a couple slices of bacon. Okay? Thank you www.shmoop.com

    Sacred Woman Gateway 2 (Sacred Foods)

    in Spirituality

    It's all about what we put into our bodies ladies!  You are not only what you eat, but what your partner consumes as well.  It's time that we become more conscious of what is happening in the world of food and the way that foods are processed.  We have to stop treating our bodies like graveyards and start eating to live by nourishing our bodies with healthy LIVING foods.  Fast food is fast death, and commercial companies are selling it cheap too!  Don't contribute to the demise of you and your loved ones, wake up now and get health conscious.  Stop living to eat and EAT TO LIVE!!!
