More Mercy

more-mercy

Light posting as I’ve been plunged into a busy post-summer, including our parish’s More Mercy event. This will be an encounter with four of Jesus’ more loved parables, along with music and prayer.

It seems there really is life offline, so after the Amoris Laetitia posts run their course (they are all lined up in the draft file) hard to tell what the future will be on this site. It likely won’t be a busy one.

If any readers happen to be in the neighborhood tonight, stop by and experience More Mercy.

    1 Peter 1:3-4(NKJV)
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you, The FREE GIFT of salvation is the highest form of MERCY there is. There is nothing you can do to earn or buy entrance into Heaven. It requires a substitute; ” The purity of Jesus” The sinless offering. Jesus willing paid the price for us, and it’s a free gift offered to you. Don’t turn away. Ask and it will be given to you. It comes with a guaranteed pass into his kingdom.

  3. Todd says:

    No argument here, Dick. Mercy is God’s gift. We are free to embrace or deny it.

  4. Dick Martin says:

    No argument here. ??? You agree there is an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, RESERVED in heaven for you. Wow. this quote is to be applied to those who are Born Again; when we pass, the scripture’s say, “John 5:24(NKJV)
    “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life. Doesn’t sound like there’s a purgatory to me?

  5. Todd says:

    This post is not about purgatory; it is about mercy. Still no argument here.

  6. Dick Martin says:

    For the born again’s destiny there is no purgatory; only Mercy thru Jesus. Those who are not Born again receive Justice not Mercy. Better to get it right than receive what you deserve.

  7. Todd says:

    “Getting it right” implies that a human being can, by intellectual assent, achieve salvation. The truth is that the Lord who can raise up children of Abraham from stones, does not need our intellectual surety to save us. It remains a free gift. Trying to intellectualize faith, grace, and salvation is a road fraught with problems. Best to accept Christ and trust in the big picture. That is the embrace of God’s mercy. Not over-thinking other people’s problems. Still, thanks for commenting, Dick.
