Sunday sermon

Sunday sermon [Video made 10-7-18]
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

Sunday sermon videos-

.Creation account
.Man and the Bride
.She came from an opened side [rib]
.Adam a type of Jesus [The last Adam]
.Redemption story seen in creation
.Adam ate with ‘eyes wide open’
.Why is this significant?
.Jesus obedience unto death- redeemed humanity
.His obedient life- never sinning- qualified him to die for the sins of others
.Yet it was the obedient act of dying for our sins that saved us [and rising again]
For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

.A true story from KCTA radio- the boy who lived for 12 days
.Gender identity- God made them- male and female
.The circumcision- mutilation experiment that went horribly bad in the end- a documented test case
.Let the children come to me
.The restatement of the obvious is needed again for our day
.A brief history of Wall Street- they tore down the wall and built a street- now the famous Wall street- it was built and tore down on the backs of Black slave labour- a sign of the times
.The dignity of all people- both minorities- children and all of us- the fundamental right to life
And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

NEW [Other videos below]
This Sunday I taught from the verses for the Mass for this day.
Later today [10-14-18] I will try and post the video I make today to Youtube and Facebook.
The common theme was God creating both man and woman- from the start.
I talked about why this simple truth- is important for our day.
Young kids in our generation have many difficult choices to make- we live in a day where challenging the most basic things- is in style.
And sadly- we have also taught this generation that choosing their gender- is up to them.
In the readings from the Mass- and the quote I gave from Ephesians [all at the bottom of this post] the basic truth that God made us male and female from the start- is a truth that needs to be re-stated in our day.
I also taught on Jesus as the last Adam- and how the 1st Adam is a type and picture of Jesus.
The apostle Paul teaches this in his letters to the churches of the new Testament.
In short-
The reading from Genesis 2 said God caused a deep sleep to come upon Adam- as he slept- God opened his side and brought forth a bride [Eve]-
Genesis 2:21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Jesus died on the Cross- his side was pierced- and in his death God too brought forth a Bride- the Church.
On the video I spoke on other ways ways Jesus and Adam are contrasted in the New Testament- I will try and add my past teachings below that relate.
I talked about the social issues of our day- the value of life- all life- and yes- even the unborn child.
The reading from Marks gospel ended with Jesus interaction with the children-
Mark 10:13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
Mark 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
Mark 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.
Mark 10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
We live in a day where we disrespect the dignity of life- a day where we question our own identities.
The elders of society- in all realms- are responsible for bringing up this generation in a just way.
Not to simply give people what they want- to affirm their base desires.
But to guide them- to instruct them- to show them that there are indeed core values that are important.
The simple reality of the value and dignity of life is an ethic that is naturally ingrained in all of us.
Most societies today think it wrong to take human life.
So the dignity of life is not a ‘right’ or ‘left’ issue- it is a basic precept that whatever side of the political aisle a person is on- should value.
I shared an example on the video of a woman- mother- who told about the death of her 12 day old new born.
I heard her testimony on the radio shortly before I made the video- and felt it was worth re-telling on the video.
One of the readings from the Mass spoke about death-
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Yes- life is a precious thing- and our Lord laid a valuable life down the day he went to the Cross-
He tasted death for every man- that all might live thru him- he was the last Adam who gave us a new life in the Spirit-
For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.

On one of the videos below [Reed] I talked to a Veteran- wounded in Iraq- who just happened to be at the park in Corpus Christi where I see my friends.
He was from New Jersey and came to Corpus Christi to have an experience with God.
Of course- not everything he said on the video was exactly right- but much of his experience was valuable.
At first- he did not want to show you the wounds he sustained in the war- he spoke about the regret he had in taking human life.
He spoke about Muslims- in a way that might offend some- he spoke about them as in if they were his brothers.
Obviously he had a lot of guilt- possibly because he took the life of his brother- not a brother in Christ so to speak- but a brother- another human- whether he was Muslim or Christian of whatever.
And it seems as if this act- the act of killing- came at great expense.
When our men [or women] come back from our wars- we often diagnose them with PTSD- and it sure seems as if Reed might have had it.
Yet- we seem to make this diagnoses as in if something is ‘wrong’- like PTSD is some type of sickness- that should not happen to people who go thru trauma- who take another life.
Actually- it is a natural effect on those who are sent to war- told to take life- and then we expect them to come back and be ‘normal’?
So I guess this chance encounter- and the video below- fit in well with this post-
A post about the dignity of human life- all human life.
