Spiritual Warfare: Real or Not? 

This past Friday I was speaking with a priest whose ministry involves deliverance from evil spirits in peoples lives. The fact is, Satan is real, demons are real, and spiritual warfare is real. He said he receives 10-12 phone calls every day from people who believe they are being affected by demons in some way or other and are seeking spiritual help from the Church.

He went on to say that he always asks them, “Have you spoken to your pastor about this?”. Note that the vast majority of the people are…

An Overview / Summary of the Journey to Kenya 

The experience was AMAZING. Yes, there was poverty everywhere but that is not what I take away from the mission. In any and every direction I looked, whether in a city, town, or village, there was poverty. Extreme poverty. My biggest takeaway was the JOY that was everywhere in the midst of the poverty. 

Water: Most of the towns have no running water whatsoever. Some have to walk up to 2 hours (one way) to find a source for water to put into 2-5 gallon containers to carry back home. Everyone in the…

Why the name "Two-Twelve Ministries"? 

The name for Two-Twelve Ministries comes from a very simple yet profound principle that I read in a book titled, "212°: The Extra Degree”.

If you put a pot of water on the stovetop and heated it to 211 degrees, you would have a pot of hot water, but not boiling water. In order for the water to begin boiling, you would have to add one more degree of heat. Water can boil only when it reaches 212 degrees. So what happens if you add that one degree to the water? As noted, it begins to boil. The effect is that…

A wake up call for ALL Christians 

Here is an eye-opening article worth the read.

I'll add a few things. There are two primary False Gospels rampantly sweeping across America and not just in the secular parts of our society, but more and more in the pews of Christian churches, both Catholic and non-Catholic alike.

The first, 'The Prosperity Gospel', has been around for centuries in some form or another. Perhaps in part because of modern technology it seems to be growing at an exponential rate. 24/7 you can have one of these False…

Pathetic. But Why is Anyone Surprised? 

We've lost our sense of sacredness in the Church. It's happened slowly yet progressively over the past 4 decades and now... well... here we are. "So you could not keep watch with me for one hour?" - Matthew 26:40.

I know I'm not the only one who has witnessed it... someone's cell phone blaring out some stupid ring tone during Mass... someone actually answering their phone and starting a conversation in the pew... someone scrolling on their phone while in line for Holy Communion.

So this news story is just…

A Priest Writes a Letter to the Pope 

It's no surprise to anyone who has observed the pontificate of our current Pope that there is growing angst regarding his seemingly purposeful creating confusion. A Capuchin priest, Fr. Thomas Weinandy, sent a letter to the pope this past summer where he, in a loving and respectful manner, directly challenges the manner in which Pope Francis is leading the Church. (Read the letter here)

Regarding the confusion that seems to endlessly come from our Holy Father, I have often lamented that, "The Holy Spirit…

Exposing False Teachers: Part One 

Exposing FALSE Teachers

So many in America today are looking for the easy way out. Forget the idea of being held accountable for anything… we are all victims. It’s not our fault. This attitude has spread like wildfire throughout the Christian world during the past few decades along with widely accepted New Age teachings in churches that claim to be "Christian".

No more sin. No more Hell. No need for redemption. No need for a Savior. Just give me the “cotton candy” Gospel. Give me the False Teachers who…

Beware FALSE TEACHER Joel Osteen 

6 I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by [the] grace [of Christ] for a different gospel 7 (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach [to you] a gospel other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed! 9 As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the one that you received, let that…
