Lent is a season based on a religious custom that is often observed by practitioners of the Catholic Church. Its intention is for practitioners to draw closer to God, primarily through fasting and abstinence of red meat. Ironically, many of them choose to focus on the sacrifice that Jesus made with His body and life unto death by crucifixion. Instead, they should focus on life which was exhibited by Jesus on the Day of Resurrection. In this part, we will discuss the resurrection of Jesus and the role of the believer unto salvation.
During the season of Lent, many practitioners of the Catholic faith fast on "Good Friday". Now Good Friday is supposed to be a day of remembrance of the physical suffering that was endured by Jesus as He was escorted up to His death by crucifixion. In this part, we will examine the Lord's Supper and Two Convents in relation to life.
Lent is a religious custom in which some practitioners fast or abstain from eating red meat for a period of time. This practice is common among many practitioners of the Catholic Church. However, many practitioners who fast, neglect to pair it with the practice of praying; which is a dominant Biblical practice. In this part, I will address the subject of fasting and praying.
Lent is a religious custom in which many practitioners fast and abstain from certain foods; specifically meat. They do so on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and every Friday within the Lent period. The traditional substitution for those days has become the fish. In this part, I will address the subject of red meat, fish, and the correlation of blood with life and Jesus.
Lent is a religious custom found within Christianity as being practiced primarily by people of the Catholic faith. It typically consists of a period of 40 days (depending on the year) that come before the commemoration day of the resurrection of Jesus. In this part I will address the subject of Ash Wednesday and the Biblical use of Ashes and Sackcloth as an expression of repentance.
Lent season will soon begin. Its practice will be observed within Christianity, most dominantly by people from the Catholic Church. I have grown up in both a part of the country and state where Catholicism is dominant among many people of faith. However, throughout my many years of observing them, I have encountered many individuals who practiced Lent without any knowledge of its attributes' connection with God's Word. At the personal level, I have worked with them, by guiding them through the scriptures, and bringing a form of clarification to many of their questions and confusions on the subject matter.
This year, through a discussion and discourse with a friend, I have decided to write a short series that addresses several attributes that pertain to Lent and compare them with what is said in God's Word. Although the research has been performed in-depth, it is presented in manner that is concise and with scripture references in order to present the main points of the subject matter at hand. It is my hope that this work will help people see the truth that lies in God's Word, and draw them closer to obtaining or maintaining a healthy relationship with Jesus.
The coffee industry has been in existence for many decades. Many coffee shops have arisen from humble origins to that of industrial machines that help keep up with the demands of its customers. However, the people who enjoy coffee the most are those who have increased in wisdom about the facets involved in making a delightful coffee drink. Starting with the essentials, here are some educational ideas that may be presented in a series of customer-oriented workshops at a local coffee shop.
There are many people who make resolutions for the new year worldwide or that of their life, such as a birthday or anniversary around the same time of the year. For many years, I used to be one of them. Yet I often fell short of completing the objectives to my goals.
The traveling experience may fill a person with a sense of adventure. As exciting as the experience may be, one may miss some of the comforts of home, such as a nice cup of coffee. Hence, I encourage you to organize a Personal Travel Coffee Kit (PTCK).
There are many unforeseen incidents that may occur while on the road. Although there are things that can be done pro-actively to be prepared and confront them, sometimes it is best to exercise discretion and play it safe. Safety first, for you and your passengers.
