Here’s a good, solid, professional assessment on one of the more recent examples of the insanity sweeping the nation.  First they rejected God.  This allowed them to reinvent truth, moral truth in particular, and moral truth concerning sexual activity especially.  This not being enough, they decided to reinvent marriage.  But wait!  Why not “gender identity” too?  And how about the children…. w...

The Ordinary Path to Holiness by R. Thomas Richard
"This book by R. Thomas Richard was the first one of his that I read. What a find!!! It is a gem of a book, for all who want to deepen their relationship with God. The author is a layman writing especially for lay persons, but he draws upon classic..." Read more of this review »
More of R.'s books…
“Most of us are not prepared to read the Word of God as He deserves. Our training in reading has been typically ordered to anything but reverence. We read in school for tests, developing the art of anticipating the questions of our teachers. We read casually for entertainment and pleasure, as scarce time permits, scanning and skipping around as we freely choose. We read for business, and profit, culling through words for whatever seems of value to us here and now. Words are for us seen as information for our profit, or entertainment or pleasure. Rarely do we have a sense of words as treasure as infinite value, or of food for life of famine, or of clear and clean water in parched, dead-dry desert. Yet the Word of God, in Scripture, is all this and more. His words are a living seed with potentials for full growth that we cannot fully imagine. His words are healing medicine to dying mankind. His words are boundless wealth to the destitute poor, and rejuvenation to those broken by age. His words are all this and more, because they are His words to us, His children whom He loves with a love we can hardly begin to grasp.”
R. Thomas Richard, The Ordinary Path to Holiness
