Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

The Trinity Foundation - The Virtue of Name-Calling

Below the article is a diatribe against Billy Graham's compromise of the Gospel because he affirmed that Roman Catholicism is not opposed to the teachings of the Bible.  This is indeed a sad reminder that a great majority of so-called Evangelicals are really compromisers with a false gospel of merits, infused righteousness, and idolatry:

The Horror File
Billy Graham’s Pilgrimage to Rome
On September 7, 1979, Christianity Today published a news report from which the following statements are taken:

 Milwaukeeans responded with gusto last month to the simple gospel message preached by evangelist Billy Graham--Interestingly, Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches among the metropolitan area’s 1.4 million population gave Graham some of his most loyal support -- Roman Catholic Archbishop Rembert Weakland sent a letter last year to priests throughout his 10-county archdiocese --telling them they could support the meetings-- Some of the priests became less critical--when they learned that the Graham team emphasizes local church involvement for new converts and would not challenge their own ministries-- At each meeting he (Graham) repeated a recent statement attributed to Pope John Paul I: “The priority of the church ought to be to evangelize those who have already been baptized.” He followed this statement at the concluding service on Sunday with, “Perhaps many people need to come and reconfirm their confirmation.”-- Adeline Smith, a Roman Catholic and one of 1,500 counselors who attended each meeting--The Archdiocese of Milwaukee arranged a special eucharistic celebration for Roman Catholic inquirers. The celebration would indicate -- That Roman Catholic doctrine and Graham’s message need not be contradictory.
Graham’s gospel is not the gospel of Paul or Christ; his diatribes against predestination and election were early warnings of his incipient Romanism, which has now become quite blatant. Caveat auditor: Let the hearer beware. 2 Peter 2:1-2; Matthew 7:21-23.
