Advent: God’s Holy Mountain

Friends, as we begin the Advent season, here are some reflections on the second chapter of the prophet Isaiah. The Church proposes his great image of God’s holy mountain as a spiritual challenge and point of meditation.

    These videos really give me something to look forward to. They help me when I feel isolated in the faith. Thank you.

    I found a video of yours from nine years ago. Though the following does not relate to your posted video, above, I'm posting it now because I see you're still active here. You can PM if you want to answer... My background: I'm an ex Catholic & a convert to Judaism. At one time I used to attend Defending the Faith conferences at Fran-U in Steubenville. I was a Catholic apologist. Anyway, here's the elephant in the room: JC was conceived without a biological father. X-tians & Catholics will quote their bibles on this Yet, in Judaism, back then and as it is today, tribal lines are passed on only through a Jewish biological father. This is indisputably outlined in Numbers Chapter 1; and specifically, v 18. It is also shown again in Numbers Ch 36 when resolving the inheritance of Zelophehad's daughters. I didn't put these chapters into your bibles. They're already in there. Since JC has no biological Jewish father, he is - at conception - disqualified from being Mashiach Since he is not Mashiach, anything regarding his life as being such is, Biblically, false Prove me wrong using Tanakh. Speaking of prophesies, here's an interesting one from Zechariah Chapter 8, verse 23: "So said the Lord of Hosts: In those days, when ten men of all the languages of the nations shall take hold of the skirt of a Jewish man, saying, 'Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'"

    When I hear you speak it does inspire me to look into the Catholic faith, being raised an atheist. I appreciate your education and well thought out discussions. However, when I listen to your younger peers, I just hear harsh opinions, and much more abrasive stances. It makes me want to explore other options. How is the Jewish or Muslim faith any less valid?

    How you doing, bro? I'm happy to know you're loooking into the Catholic faith. I hope you find what you're looking for! If I may give you some suggestions, you should check some other CSgos Catholic channels that are worthwhile... There is the Matt Fradd show (which is great and very funny, it's a talk show hosted by this Australian dude), the Ascension Presents channel with Fr. Mike Schmitz, Fr. John Hollowell's channel... They are very profound, sincere about their faith and very relatable... Good folk! You should check them out sometime! Anyway... I'm praying for you from waaay south, down here in the tropics, in Brazil. God bless!

    Hi WOF gang, thank you for all that you do! In the beginning of this BRB asks us to read through Isaiah and says “you might want to find good commentary on it.” Where do you recommend “finding food commentary” I am not just not sure

    I suppose it is no surprise that the corrupt new york bishop is one of the bishops who has put a hold on the beatification of the venerable Fulton Sheen. There is so much corruption in the catholic hierarchy that it is extremely discouraging.

    The universe is a system through which Re concludes or back closes the existence to itself. This universal system has a whole host of features. Through this there it is and it works. In each sequence of this video series - starting from 001 Data - each one of these features is presented and discussed. Since everything in the universe and his system is based on logic, the reason of God and the world is in principle understandable. Thus, all previous models of faith and cosmogony theories are unnecessary

    Book of Genesis is FACT. Please find below proof on the Science behind Book of Genesis - Scientific Proof on the Creation of the universe. These are some of the best videos out there. Kindly share with any other apologists as well. The actual scientific explanation for the 7 days of creation is something like this; The universe is 7 days old at the point of creation( looking forward) and 13.8 billion years old (looking backwards at the point of creation). This is called space time dilation - the further you get from the point of creation - the older the age of the universe. Cross section of the universe is as per NASA WMAP diagram. Gerald Schroeder PhD and Hugh Ross - Phd Astrophysicists have explained this further. a)Gerald schoeder has even given the mathematical formula for the age of the universe. (and also the each day = x billion years long) b) Hugh Ross gives very detailed explanations on the frames of reference God is talking from i) Gen 1.1 - at the point of creation(1st day/2nd day/3rd day), ii) Gen 1.2 from the surface of the earth iii) Gen 1.3 - Let there be light - the atmosphere become transparent iv) Age of man decreased from 1000 years to 120 years - Hugh Ross explains in his video how the explosion of the supernova about 100k years ago ( monoserotis ??) and that the cosmic radiation from this caused genetic degradation. this is why the age of the patriarchs decreased from 1000 years (adam to noah/shem) to 120ish around abraham. This radiation was x light years away and would have hit earth around the time of noah. - the 2 great lights. - testing genesis with science God created the universe in the divine Hebrew language. When all the numerical value of Hebrew names of the elements/planets/etc are graphed against their properties - it consistently produces a straight line. By Prof Haim Shore Garden of Eden location is submerged between Persian gulf & straits of Ormuz Noahs Flood proof Heres the physical proof of Noahs flood- 12k years ago a meteorite hit Greenland polar ice caps and vapourised it. It flooded the Americas to Middle east. It was regional flood & not global flood. Thats why you find wolly mammoths remains from Americas to Siberia frozen in ice and mud with partially digested food in its stomach. American megafauna was wiped out(camelops, lions, cheetahs etc). Thats why Africa has wider genetic diversity than rest of the world. African genes stretch from Africa to India to Sentinelese ( andaman islands) to Papua new guinea + Australia & Japan(ainu). But you dont find indigenous black population in Americas or Europe. The Clovis people of the Americas suddenly went extinct. ( crater for impact site at greenland ) Noahs Ark by ron wyatt (ark location ) ( anchor stones found ) Sodom and Gomorrah. ( see Ron wyatts videos) The chemical analysis of the brimstone ( sulphur balls) @ near 98% purity ( white) vs volcanic sulphur which is only 45% purity (yellow) A meteorite with high purity sulpur content vapourised/ionised the structures here. Theres melted sand, bone fragments and other proof Moses and red sea crossing The santorini volcano was the trigger for the 10 biblical plagues. ( explained in the movie Exodus Decoded by James Cameron) Theres archaeological &video proof of coral encrusted chariot wheels & bone in the Red Sea @ Nurweiba crossing between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The parting of the red sea happened due to a strong easterly wind blowing @40mph + low tidal effect possibly due to tsunami & lunar position. Footage of Mount Sinai The top of Mount Sinai/Mount Horeb ( Jebel al Lawz) in saudi arabia has melted & blackened rock. when you break it...the inside is red. Its the only mountain in the area to be are reddish. Apparition of Virgin Mary Eucharistic miracle.. Incorruptible bodies of saints ( due to the Eucharist) - only happens in the Catholic church. No other religion has this miracle

    This guy seems like such a smart man. You'd think he wouldn't be prone to so much contrivance. It's just too bad that these theologians just can't resist endless foolish contrivance. Christian theologians have been at it for 2000 years now. Enough!

    Mary Pinakat we don’t know who wrote the gospels. Why would we believe them and what would we believe. Why would you not believe the Book of Mormon, or the quaran or the stories told about the Hindu or even the Greek gods?

  55. Mary Pinakat

    Mary PinakatPřed 7 dny

    @My OpenMind How could the Gospel writers could be eyewitnesses to something that is in future? If they had a mistaken notion, that needn't eliminate the possibility. There cannot be a connection.

    The Garden of Eden is the First Holy Mountain of God. God placed Lucifer in that garden to guard it and he defiled it. Next, God placed Adam in the garden to not just guard it but also keep it, and he also failed and defiled the Holy Mountain of God. So, now who can ascend the Holy Mountain of God? There is only one way, and Jesus had shown us the Way...? What is the way? it is called the "Way of the Cross", but we cannot climb it alone, even Jesus did not climb it alone. God had given Her a Mother...and so Jesus At the Foot of the Cross, fulfilled his promise, I will not leave you orphan...Jesus gave us the most precious gift, He entrusted our journey to the Holy Mountain to His beloved Mother..."Son, Behold your Mother." See you all in the Holy Mountain of God with rosary in our hands.
