Christ has no body but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
Compassion on this world,
Yours are the feet with which he walks to do good,
Yours are the hands, with which he blesses all the world.
Yours are the hands, yours are the feet,
Yours are the eyes, you are his body.
Christ has no body now but yours,
No hands, no feet on earth but yours,
Yours are the eyes with which he looks
compassion on this world.
Christ has no body now on earth but yours.

Teresa of Avila (1515–1582)

THE GOOD MUSLIM

One day, a Christian of America made up in his mind to test Jesus, saying, "Teacher, remind me on how I am to inherit eternal life." Jesus said to him, "What is written in the New Testament?

And Jesus said to him, "You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live." But the Christian of America, didn't fully appreciate the answer. He straightened his back. Cast a smirk of a...

Would you be mine? Could you be mine?... It’s a neighborly...

The Book Of Job

I hope that someday I am a part of a church where this video is an acceptable learn tool. 🙂 So I talked about Job today... or this one...  Season 5 Episode 6 - Cartmanland What can we learn today from Job’s story and from Job’s faith? Well one of, Job’s problems was that he had watched too much television! That’s why he “knew,” he just knew, that if you only did religion right it had to pay off. Act right, believe right, and success will be yours. If he was good and he would get the goodies. He’d heard it over and over again from all...

The Logic of Hell

By Adam Hamilton • Posted on April 22nd, 2011 http://www.ministrymatters.com/all/article/entry/1005/the-logic-of-hell When I’ve suggested in the past that there might be Hindus in heaven, some of my conservative friends have found the idea unsettling. In what follows I’d like to approach a notion that might be equally unsettling to some of my liberal friends: the idea of hell and the reality that some people are destined to go there. Hell seems, to many people, to be one of those doctrines that is inconsistent with the idea of a loving and...
