  • Bible Answers: Love for enemies sparks query of bin Laden

    “The news the past few weeks has been disturbing for someone who believes that we are to love our enemies.  How do I think about bin Laden and love for enemies at the same time?" — Christopher

    When Jesus instructed His followers to love their enemies (Mt. 5:44-48), He established an ideal that is scarcely possible. It is not our natural inclination nor is it typically within our ability to love unconditionally those who are bent on our destruction.
    The ideal still stands, however. Consider this: He was not telling His hearers to disregard harm done or to overlook potential danger from one’s enemies.
    He was, rather, extending to them a high calling: earnestly desire the redemption of your enemies.

  • Pope phones astronauts in 1st papal call to space

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The 12 astronauts circling the Earth got a call from a much higher authority Saturday.

    Pope Benedict XVI made the first ever papal call to space. He addressed the shuttle and station crews from the Vatican. Two Italians are on board: Endeavour astronaut Roberto Vittori and International Space Station resident Paolo Nespoli.

    The pope said he admired the astronauts' courage, discipline and commitment. He added that he hopes shuttle commander Mark Kelly's wife continues to improve. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, his wife, was shot in Tucson, Ariz., in January. Kelly thanked him for his kind words.

    “All the coverage of the royal wedding made me wonder what the Bible says about kings and monarchies.” — Mary

    In the history of Israel covered by the Bible, several forms of government appear. In its earliest “pre-nation” existence (patriarchs, exodus from Egypt and wilderness wandering), Israel was essentially a form of theocracy. After the conquest of Canaan, “the nation” was at best a loose federation of tribes. The tribes came together in times of threat or distress, led by a charismatic leader (known as a “judge”; Judg. 4:10-19ff; I Sam. 7:15-17).

    “Is there anything in the Bible that might allow for same-sex marriage?”—Mark

    The Bible is unabashedly straightforward: the ideal for marriage is heterosexual. There are admittedly various forms of marriage in the Bible that may not meet the definition of what is often called the “traditional family” (e.g., multiple wives, concubinage, close degrees of marriage between half-siblings, cousins, et al).
    Furthermore, wedding “ceremonies,” as we moderns practice them, do not appear in Scripture. The arranged marriages and politically and religiously motivated unions found there are rarely openly endorsed or forcefully proscribed by Scripture.

  • Local group marks traditional holiday

    Our Lady of the Woods will celebrate the traditional holiday of Beltane with a ritual, feast and Maypole dance on Sunday in North Mesa Park. The Beltane Sabbat marks the beginning of the summer for the Celts.
    For many English towns, the Maypole remained stationed at the town center, becoming a gathering place for the whole season, which was a sort of ongoing block party.
    Our Lady of the Woods will recreate some of those good times at their celebration. The potluck feast that follows will give way to songs, dance and stories.
