Word of Life – Gal 5:17-18 (19/5/2019 – 2/6/2019)

“For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.”

If we are led by the Spirit of God, the law can no longer judge us because the Spirit of God does not lead us into sin. On the contrary, He gives us the strength to fight, and when we fall He gives us the strength to repent and rise at once and to continue our fight rather than to be plunged in despair or in the spirit of betrayal of our soul and of Jesus who redeemed us by paying the price of His life.



Word of Life – 1 Cor 11:31-32 (5/5/2019 – 19/5/2019)

“If we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are chastened by the Lord, that we may not be condemned with the world.”

The First Epistle to the Corinthians says that if we judge ourselves, we will not be judged. However, with this judgment, this true self-criticism, we cannot stop halfway. Judas judged himself but ended up committing suicide in despair. True judgment of myself must be connected with the faith that Jesus Christ paid for my sins. So I give my sins to Him and have them covered under His blood. Then it is true: “If we walk in the light, the blood of Christ cleanses us from all sin.”

Therefore, we have to fight with sin, and not forget the words of Christ: “Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Me.” “Because narrow is the way which leads to eternal life.” (Mt 7:14)

If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.



Where to get the courage and strength? (+german version)

Jesus says to the apostles several times: “Do not be afraid!”  And where to get the courage and strength? In prayer. In God’s presence. When you pray, do not talk to yourself, for such prayer will not give you strength. First realize: Where is Jesus? He is here and He is waiting for you. He is waiting for you to come into contact with Him, to give Him your sin and your problems. Jesus is with us in every problem, we only need to be aware of it.



Michael Faraday – scientist and Christian

Every true scientist should be a believer if he is a real expert in his field. Michael Faraday was the man who invented the dynamo. He died in 1867. He was a devout believer. When asked what his idea was about what would happen after death, he said he had no idea but he was sure about it. He quoted the Scripture from the letter to Timothy: "I know whom I have believed" (2Ti 1:12). And he added: "I'm sure. I'm sure that after I die, I’ll pass into Jesus' arms. I trust the Word of God."



Reflection on Rom 7:14-15

Post date:   2019-04-06
Autor:   BCP
The Apostle Paul shows here a contradiction, a kind of spiritual schizophrenia, which is caused by original sin in us. The law of God is holy but every one of us is subject to carnality and mentality, and both the body and soul are influenced by the law of sin. Our spirit thirsts for God but is bound and imprisoned by our corrupt nature. Everyone can see by experience that the law of sin is at work in us. This is proved by the fact that we want to do good and we love good but we do evil which we hate and do not want to do. There is a law of sin here. Law is a principle which repeats itself; it is not something that happens just once. The law of sin is at work while we live this life in time. This is what we must reckon with and what the Word of God tells us about. Therefore we need to walk by faith. For there is not only the law of sin but also the law of the Spirit – which will be mentioned in the next verses – and the latter is at work if in concrete situations we unite ourselves to our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

“For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do.”



Additional explanation for the preceding Word of life (Romans 7:5-6)

Post date:   2019-04-06
Autor:   BCP
The reality is that even if we have been converted and try to follow Christ, the power of original sin, which is in us, is still at work. Its source is deep in our soul. We should bury it into the death of Christ, paralyze it by faith. It means that at a particular moment we surrender ourselves, or our will, wholly to God and unite ourselves by faith to Christ crucified. At that moment the source of evil is paralyzed and we cannot sin. But because our life continues in time, after some time we are faced with a test again. We are influenced by the world, the devil and the source of evil – our corrupt nature. They want to deceive us again to make us believe in lies, lose contact with Jesus and begin to do good on our own, without God.



Let us do works of worth for eternity (+german version)

Post date:   2019-03-26

Let us do works which are of worth for eternity. Let us do them together with Jesus. Let us be with Him. This is of worth for eternity; otherwise it is good for nothing. We tend to do things for effect and desire the praise of others. More often than not we receive no praise but are rather beaten and persecuted and there is no effect – it seems to us that we just wasted our time, energy… You can say: “Well, that’s how things are, but You know, Lord, that I acted in faith.” And then it is of worth for eternity, and the fruit will come later.



Word of Life – Rom 7:5-6 (24/3/2019 – 7/4/2019)

“For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.”

The passions, which are produced by sin in us, bear fruit to death. Union with Christ’s death makes us able to serve God, i.e. commit ourselves wholly to God, in the newness of life. The Spirit of God, who participated in the resurrection of Christ, then works in us, so that this new life in us may grow.



The gender issue in Lent 2019 (+ video)

We have entered the Lenten season, the essence of which is repentance. Jesus says clearly, and His words apply to everyone, “Unless you repent, you will all perish!” And this is a very serious thing! Not only the existence of Christianity but even the existence of the Czech nation is in store today. Neglecting what we ought to do is a serious sin.  The Parliament is currently working to implement a law enabling 12-year-old children to change their gender. These are crimes not only against God and His order but also against humanity. To be silent on them means to participate in the crime! What should the Church do? Avert the curse from the nation by showing true repentance and call down God’s blessing again. Without it, the fight against autogenocidal laws will remain ineffective!



Heretics and apostates of Germany

Post date:   2019-03-19

During their 11-14 March assembly in Lingen, the German Bishops’ Conference presented proposals concerning contraception, cohabitation, homosexual relationships and gender theory. It is quite evident that it is absolutely contradictory to the Church’s existing doctrine. The German bishops take no account of the reality of death, God’s judgment and eternity. They cynically break God’s law and commandments, i.e. the way to salvation. Jesus says about them: “I do not know you. Depart from Me, all you workers of iniquity. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” (Lk 13:27-28)



An appeal to Bishop Schneider (+ video)

Therefore, we hereby appeal to You to make at least an additional demand that Francis publicly revoke his heretical statement or resign from the papal office, as unconditionally insisted on by Archbp. Viganò. By Your ambiguous attitude You block the reform of the Church more than the manifest heretic Card. Marx by his heresies.



Francis and heresies in Abu Dhabi

God in His wisdom did not establish any pluralism of religions. God just allows or permits paganism, demons, evil, wars or crimes, but ultimately the righteous Judgment of God will come and many will go away into eternal condemnation. This is not what God wills, but He respects free human will. God’s will is that all be converted and saved by faith in Jesus Christ.



Anathema on Metropolitan B. Gudziak (+video)

On 11 March 2019, by authority of the apostolic and prophetic office, the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate pronounced an anathema – excommunication from the Church – on Borys Gudziak. On 18 February 2019, Francis appointed him Metropolitan of Philadelphia (USA). B. Gudziak, not only as President of UCU in Lvov (Ukraine), promoted gender immorality, which is rebellion against God and God’s law. He holds the ecclesiastical post illegitimately. If he refuses to repent and dies in this state, he will be eternally condemned as a heretic.
