  • Responding to those with AIDS

    “How might the Bible shape my response to people with AIDS?”—John

    Basically, two perspectives appear in Scripture. In the ancient Hebrew texts, you will find that God apparently used plague more than once as a means of judgment on those who were in rebellion against Him (Num. 16:41-50; Deut. 28:58ff.) From this observation, you may conclude that AIDS sufferers are being punished by God and thus should be ostracized, even condemned. The close association of AIDS and the homosexual community has made this a quick and ready conclusion for many people over the last 30 years.

  • Thanks from IHM

    To thank the county police and firefighters, Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish invited all police and fire fighters  and their families to be the honored guests during the annual picnic at the Church Aug. 7.  Above, Rev. John Carney presents St. Michael the Archangel medals to police and St. Florian medals to firefighters, following his blessing.

  • Bible Answers: Being faithful while listening to Lady Gaga

    “If I want to be faithful to the Bible and to my faith, but I like to listen to Lady Gaga, can I do both?”— Katie

    Before you can answer this, you have to engage in some serious thought and honest appraisal of what matters in your life.
    You have to become a critical thinker. Ask yourself why you like to listen to her: is it the sound of her voice, the lyrics of her songs?
    Perhaps you are entertained by her outlandish costumes and “out there” behavior.
    Well, taste is what it is, but you should consider that your peers and media marketers largely shape pop culture entertainment preferences.

  • Bible Answers: Why Jesus wept for Lazarus

    “The Bible says Jesus cried when His friend Lazarus died. Why did He weep — didn’t He know He was going to raise Lazarus from the dead?” — Kathy

    This story is found only in John’s Gospel (chapter 11), one of several powerful moments in the life of Jesus that are not recorded in the earlier gospels. John, most likely writing many years after Jesus’ death and resurrection, appears to have the aim of clearly portraying both Jesus’ humanity and divinity — an issue that was increasingly debated at the end of the first century and beyond.

  • Bible Answers: Life's troubles should be looked on with a measure of 'exultation'

    “What insights might the Bible have for us as we come through another fire?” —John

    We don’t need the Bible to remind us that life is full of unpleasant experiences, dangerous times and many interruptions of our well-made plans. Of course, the Bible is replete with accounts of such things because it is essentially the story of how humans and God interact in times of crisis.
