Uncomfortable circumstances have a means of testing our love. “If God called me to serve Him in Bihar, I would probably stand in church and with the deepest passion and commitment declare my love for the people of Bihar. Yet, in that crowded train, when they occupied my space and greatly inconvenienced me, loving them was the last thing on my mind. If I cannot love them in that space how dare I say I love them in any other space?”
Right here’s an odd however fascinating article on a lady whose mom was the primary individual to see Jesus in a tortilla. “To this day, my mom can’t describe exactly how she felt — chills, and some combination of ‘extraña, alegre, y con medio’ (‘strange, happy, and with fear’) — but most clearly she experienced a profound calling to keep the tortilla. Still, she wanted confirmation from a person of faith that it was a sign from God. The priest was dubious, at best, but blessed it anyway — and then, despite his skepticism, he told a few people, and then it just spread like wildfire. By the time my sister returned from school later that day, there were hundreds of people waiting in line to see the tortilla, seeking to believe in something.”

The Monetary Instances has an extended article on Joel Osteen and the prosperity gospel. I consider it’s worthwhile to get to it through Google to keep away from the paywall. “With a fortune estimated at $60m and a mansion listed on Zillow at $10.7m, Osteen is hardly living like a friar. His suburban Houston home has three elevators, a swimming pool and parking for 20 cars.”
Evidently most of the world’s tech elites are dropping religion of their self-created faith of know-how. “It seems that we’re entering into a paradoxical twilight time, an era astride two ages. On one side of the twain, digital domination seems unstoppable, and yet on the other side, people don’t trust it. What will happen when the reality is real yet the believers don’t believe? Barring some sort of cataclysm that does away with electricity, it’s hard to imagine computers going anywhere. Yet at the same time, it’s also hard to imagine that humans won’t find a way to subvert the unloved digital superstructure.”
Carl Trueman warns that we have to select our martyrs fastidiously. “It is surely a sign of the times when Christians lionize someone as a hero of the Faith and quasi-martyr for taking an ethical stand on traditional morality, but wink at his denial of fundamental Christian doctrines.”
