Matthew Vines Experiences Heavy Backlash As New Book Readies

But fundamentalist Christians are cutting the 24-year-old no slack. They have already begun to attack him and accuse him of manipulating the Bible.

An Easter (Pascha) message

Of Easter, Saint John of Damascus said: “This is the day of resurrection.
Let us be illuminated by the feast. Let us embrace each other. Let us call
‘brothers’ even those who hate us, and forgive all by the resurrection.”

Let us all try to embrace our loved ones as well as forgive those who hate
us. So much of the world despises us for who God made us to be and who we
are called to love. We are among those who experience abandonment,
loneliness, and isolation. And yet, we must never forget that the Risen
Lord does not abandon, or isolate, or shun us!

“Therefore my heart is glad, and my tongue rejoices, my body will also
rest secure, because you will not abandon me…” (Psalm 16)

As we are not abandoned by God, let us not abandon anyone, especially those
who hate us; embrace and forgive them. It isn’t easy, but it is better for
us, for our peace of mind, and it is in the spirit of Christ to love and
forgive all. As He hung upon the Cross for our sake, He asked the Father to
forgive those who crucified him. When you feel alone, persecuted, or hated,
try and think on this.

Happy Easter to everyone

—Rachel

We need not fear death - “Christ is Risen from the dead, and by dying He has trampled down death, giving life to those in the tombs”.

That he is Lord above all, and suffered as no other would for me. I am loved.

It means that unconditional love is here and salvation is real.

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter. Forgot to mention that last weekend was not too good for anti-LGBT hate group leader Peter LaBarbera. He was arrested in Saskatchewan’s Univ. of Regina for trespassing.

If you haven’t heard, gay unions and adoptions are now legal in Malta. Thanks to a unanimous vote, almost all the rights of married heterosexual couples are afforded to LGBT people. This bill is Trans* inclusive.

Dios todopoderoso, que por nuestra redención entregaste a tu Hijo unigénito a muerte de cruz, y por su resurrección gloriosa nos libraste del poder de nuestro enemigo: Concédenos morir diariamente al pecado, de tal manera que, en el gozo de su resurrección, vivamos siempre con Jesucristo tu Hijo nuestro Señor; que vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, ahora y por siempre. Amén.
