God created the whole world and all that is in it. Genesis tells us that the world is good, because it is created by God and that human beings are said to be created in his image and likeness and are “good”. However, in the New Testament the “world” is sometimes used to indicate the forces of opposition to the work of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. One person said it quite simply, the world is anyplace where Jesus is not Lord. It is anyplace where the teachings of Jesus are not put into practice. The world is anyplace where people are following their own selfish desires, following their own will, and not following the will of God as presented in the Bible and the teaching of the Church. I would take it a step further and say that the world is not passive when it comes to its opposition to the Gospel. Rather it is quite active in its attempts to undermine the Gospel. The world strives to destroy the teachings of the Bible and the Church, to make them seem irrelevant in today’s culture. The greatest myth perpetrated by the world is that one can be happy without following the teaching of Jesus, the Bible and the Church. The world teaches that we can do whatever we want, follow our own desires, and in this way achieve happiness and fulfillment. Nothing could be further from the truth. Real and ultimate happiness can only be achieved by accepting Jesus and living according to the way he taught. What about you? Are you happy? Eventually, if you follow the ways of the world you will find them to be empty promises. More sex, more money, more drugs, more stuff, more spending, more prestige, a different mate, or a different job will not bring you the ultimate joy and happiness you desire and deserve as God’s child. Eternal happiness can only be had by asking Jesus to be the Lord of your life and by living his teachings. Don’t listen to the lies that the Church is irrelevant. With Jesus, the Church’s ultimate goal is your eternal happiness. See you in church this Advent and Christmas. “May the Lord bless and keep you. May he let his face shine upon you and give you his peace.”

When celebrating Christmas was criminal

In 1644, the English Parliament outlawed Christmas. No celebrations of any kind were to be tolerated that commemorated the season. What caused this revolt against celebrating the birth of Christ?…

Impatience Is My Middle Name

Patience isn’t a virtue I possess. Strangely my father had the patience of Job. My mother, on the other hand had very little, and you can guess by now, who…
