People Are Without Excuse

About Gay and Lesbian Relationships...Saint Paul was not Politically Correct...Neither am I:

Romans 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised.Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

Let It Rain

Today, the 45th president of the United States of America took the oath of office in the peaceful transferal of power. The rain held off until the moment the President took the podium to speak to the nation. As it began to rain, I remembered that rain is a sign of God's blessing. God is blessing America and its new president, Donald J. Trump.

After the president's speech, Evangelist Franklin Graham rose to give one of the benediction prayers. He noted: “Mr. President, in the Bible rain is a sign of of God’s blessing, and it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the [inaugural] platform,” Graham said. “And it’s my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration, and may he bless America.”

Where Evil Abounds Grace Does Much More Abound

For those of you who may not understand American politics. The blue areas are the regions where Liberal Democrats have governed for years. They voted for Hillary Clinton. The 2016 Democrat Convention actually booed when God and Jerusalem were inserted into their platform. President Obama has mocked conservative Christians (" they cling to guns or religion"). Here is clear evidence of the failure of such evil ideology:

The Passing of Father Gregory Williams

I just learned yesterday of the September 28, 2016 passing of my former priest Father Gregory Williams of  the Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Liberty, Tennessee. My wife and I spent two years at the chanter's stand and altar learning from Father Gregory. He was quite the task master as he spared no detail about the proper liturgy in his patient, yet task-master manner. We are grateful for what we learned and for being allowed to serve with him for the time we did.

We offer our deepest condolences to Matushka Anastasia, Father Gregory's children, grandchildren and members of the congregation.

May his memory be eternal.
