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.

Lutherans Vote Down Homosexual Clergy

I find it disturbing that homosexual clergy is even on the agenda in some denominations. Clearly the Scriptures and Christian tradition have always and forever forbidden sexual immorality, particularly homosexual behavior.

Even if we allow for reason it has yet to be established by modern science that homosexuality is genetically or biologically predetermined. The best the radical left can come up with is reflective thinking from the soft sciences like psychology. Psychological science is basically circular logic. Psychologists seem to assume that because many people have a similar problem and this problem is one they refuse to overcome or do not want to overcome, then it must not be dysfunctional or problematic. Redefining dysfunction as normal or normative does not make it so.

Even nature itself would show that human beings are both male and female and the race is perpetuated by intercourse between a male and a female. Scripture is revelation from God and God says that He intended for man and woman to exist in a state of holy matrimony so that there could be a stable family from which healthy and stable children can be nurtured to maturity.

I call Christians everywhere to stand for the truth as it is established forever in God's Word. God knows better than we do what is best for humanity.
