Pope Francis calls for ‘gestures of peace’ in wake of mosque attacks

Vatican City, Mar 17, 2019 / / 06:15 am (CNA). – Pope Francis known for expressions of peace to oppose violence and hatred Sunday in the aftermath of strikes on two mosques in New Zealand.

“To the grief for the wars and the battles that continue to afflict humanity, we have added that to the victims of this horrible assault on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand,” Pope Francis stated March 17.

The pope requested all gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus prayer to join in a moment of silent prayer for “our Muslim allies ” that had been killed in New Zealand, also said he is going to continue to plead the dead, the wounded, as well as their loved ones. A number of 50 individuals were killed in Friday’so shooting, and 34 of those wounded stay in Christchurch Hospital.

Determined by the necessity and meaning of suffering, the pope said, “every one of us has his own crossover. The Lord shows us in the conclusion of our journey which will be the Resurrection — the beauty of carrying out our own crossover. ”

“The Transfiguration of Christ shows us that the Christian perspective of suffering,” Pope Francis explained. “It is a necessary, but transitory passing. ”

“By showing his glory, Jesus assures us the cross, the trials, the difficulties in which we battle have their solution and will be overcome in Easter,” he explained.

The pope explained that in Christ’so called Transfiguration, Jesus awarded his disciples Peter, James, and John that a foretaste of the Resurrection shortly before his crucifixion.

“Jesus knew they would not accept this reality – the fact of the cross, the truth of Jesus’ death,” Francis explained. “And so he wishes to prepare to bear the scandal of the passion and death of the cross, so that they will know that this is the way whereby the Heavenly Father will bring his Son into glory, lifting him from the dead. ”

“And this will also be the route of the disciples: nobody comes into eternal life except for subsequent Jesus, bringing his personal cross into earthly life,” he included.

Pope Francis urged taking more time for prayer and moments of recollection through the Lenten season to allow Christ’so “light to pervade and radiate in our lives. ”

Throughout “prayer in Christ and in the Holy Spirit” a individual could be transformed from within and “can illumine others and the neighboring world,” he explained.

“The Virgin Mary instructs us to stay with Jesus even if we don’t understand Him and don’t understand His ways. Because only by staying with Him will we find his glory,” Pope Francis said.

Daily Lenten Reflections: Memories are treasures in our later years. We often sit and sort through them, like the nursery-rhyme King of Hearts in his counting house. Some of them bring a tear or two to our eyes because we hit back to get something or somebody who’s currently beyond our grasp. 

William Lane Craig debates James Crossley on the resurrection of Jesus

two horses combat out it may the best horse win!

This is my favorite debate on the revival.

You can see the debate here:

The MP3 file can be gotten in Apologetics 315.

There is not much snark inside this short article, because Crossley is a solid scholar, and very honest with all the proof.

SUMMARY

William Lane Craig’s opening speech

Two contentions:

  • There aren’t any nominal facts which are accepted by most historians
  • The best explanation for this four minimal truth is that God raised Jesus from the dead

Contention 1 of 2:

Truth 1: The burial

  • The burial is multiply attested
    • The burial is based on the ancient source material that Mark utilized for his gospel
    • Scholars date that Markan source to over 10 Decades of this crucifixion
    • The burial is also in the first departure in 1 Cor 15:3-8
    • So you have 5 sources, some of which Are Extremely ancient
  • The burial is imputed to your member of the Sanhedrin
    • the burial is most probable because reveals an enemy of the church doing
    • making it unlikely to be an innovation

Fact 2: The empty tomb

  • The burial story supports the vacant tomb
    • the site of Jesus’ tomb was known
    • the disciples could not proclaim a resurrection if the body were still inside
    • that the antagonists into the early Christians could have generated the body
  • The empty tomb would be multiple attested
    • it’s mentioned in Mark
    • it’s in the separate sources used by Matthew and John
    • it’s at the early sermons documented in Acts
    • it’s implied by 1 Cor 15:3-8, since resurrection requires that the human body is lacking
  • The empty tomb was discovered by women
    • the testimony of girls of girls Wasn’t normally permitted in courts of law
    • when this narrative was being composed, they would have selected male boomers
  • The empty tomb discover lacks mythical embellishment
    • there Is Not Any theological or apologetical expression on the meaning of the grave
  • The early Jewish response implies that the grave was empty
    • the answer was that the disciples stole the body
    • that requires the grave was discovered empty

Truth 3: The looks to individuals and groups, a few of them hostile

  • The set of looks is at 1 Cor 15:3-8
    • this substance is extremely ancient, withing 1-3 years following the crossover
    • James, the brother of Jesus, wasn’t a believer after he obtained his appearance
    • Paul was hostile to the early church after he obtained his look
  • Particular looks are multiply attested
    • Peter: attested by Luke and Paul
    • The twelve: attested by Luke, John and Paul
    • The women: exemplified by Matthew and John

Truth 4: The first belief in the revival emerged in an environment that was hostile

  • There wasn’t any background notion at a dying Messiah
  • There wasn’t any background belief in a single person resurrecting ahead of the general resurrection of all of the righteous at the end of the era
  • The Turks were willing to die for their belief in the resurrection of Jesus
  • The revival is the best explanation for the transformation of their disciples from frightened to reckless of departure

Contention 2 :

  • The resurrection is the best excuse as It moves C.B. McCullough’s six tests for historic explanations
  • Not one of those naturalistic explanations account for the minimal facts in Addition to the resurrection

James Crossley’s opening address

Appeals to Most scholars doesn’t prove anything

  • The majority of people in the west are still Muslims so of course there are a Vast Majority of scholars that support the revival
  • that there are Christian colleges in which refusal of the resurrection can Lead to termination

The Greatest historical sources (1 Cor 15:3-8 and Mark) aren’t that great

1 Cor 15:3-8 doesn’t support the empty tomb

  • Suggestion 4 probably does imply a bodily resurrection
  • the passing does possess eyewitnesses to looks of Jesus
  • but there are no eyewitnesses to the vacant tomb Inside This source
  • appearances occur in other civilizations in different times and locations
  • Jesus seen himself as a martyr
  • his followers may have had hallucinations

Mark 16:1-8

  • Mark is dated to the late 30s and early 40s
  • The girls who discover the tomb tell nobody about the empty tomb

The gospels reveal signs of having things added to them

  • Jewish narrative telling practices allowed the teller to make things up to boost their protagonist
  • one instance of this would be the story of the earthquake and the folks coming out of their graves
  • that story isn’t at Mark, nor some outside sources like Josephus
  • if there actually was a mass resurrection, in which are these people now?
  • So this passage in Matthew obviously demonstrates that at least some parts of the New Testament may call
  • concerning the contradiction between the women tell NO ONE and yet other people appear at the empty tomb
  • the narrative about Jesus commissioning the ancient church to evangelize Gentiles was likely added
  • there are also discrepancies in the timing of events and looks
  • why are there explicit statements of high Christology in John, but not at the earlier sources?

William Lane Craig’s rebuttal

Crossley’s answer to this burial: he accepts it

Crossley’s answer to the vacant tomb: he thinks it was composed

  • Rabbinical tales Aren’t comparable to this gospel accounts
  • the rabbinical stories Are Only anecdotal creative story-telling
  • that the gospels are ancient biographies – the genre is completely distinct
  • the rabbinic miracle tales are listed substantially later than the gospels
  • the rabbi’s moral and legal ideas were written down right away
  • the miracle stories were written down a century or two later
  • compared to the miracle stories about Jesus are at the earliest sources, such as Mark
  • that the rabbinical stories are meant for entertainment, not history
  • that the gospels are thought as biography
  • just because there are several legendary/apocalyptic elements in Matthew, it doesn’t undermine things like the crucfixion which are historically true

Crossley’s answer to this signs for the empty tomb:

  • No Answer to the burial
  • the empty tomb Cannot Be made up, it was implied by Paul early
  • the girls wouldn’t have said nothing forever – they finally talked later they arrived into where the disciples were
  • no response to the lack of embellishment
  • no Answer to the ancient Jewish polemic

Crossley’s response to the appearances

  • He insists the first followers of Jesus had experiences where they believed Jesus was still alive

Crossley’s response to the ancient belief in the bodily resurrection:

  • No response about how this belief in a revival could have emerged in the absence of background belief at the death of the Messiah and the revival of one man prior to the general resurrection of All of the righteous at the end of the age

What about Crossley’s hallucination concept?

  • Crossley States the followers of Jesus had dreams, and they translated these dreams against the story of the Maccabean martyrs who looked forward to their resurrections
  • however the hallucination theory doesn’t account for the empty tomb
  • and the Maccabean martyrs were not expecting the resurrection of one guy, and clearly not the Messiah – so that narrative doesn’t supply the Perfect background notion for a hallucination of one resurrected person Before the end of the age
  • if the looks were non-physical, the disciples would not have implemented the term revival – it would just happen to be an eyesight
  • the dreams could easily be reconciled with the idea that somehow God had been pleased with Jesus and He Had any glorified/vindicated non-corporeal presence – although perhaps not resurrection
  • not only that, the hallucination theory doesn’t actually explain the dreams, because there were visions to groups, to skeptics and to enemies in a Number of places

What about the debate that just Christians accept the resurrection?

  • It’s ’s an ad hominem attack that averts the discussions

James Crossley’s rebuttal

About the burial:

  • I might be convinced of that the burial account is accurate

About the non-expectation of a suffering/dying Messiah:

  • Jesus believed he was likely to expire
  • this believing he was about to die overturned all previous Messianic expectations that the Messiah wouldn’t suffer or die
  • the ancient Jews could readily reconcile the Thought of a suffering, deceased guy murdered by the Romans with all the Ability of the all-powerful Messiah who supposed to reign forever
  • no actually bodily resurrection would have to occur to get them to carry on to identify an executed corpse together with the role of Messiah

About the belief in the bodily resurrection:

  • It’d be natural for Jews, who thought in a general revival of All of the rigtheous dead at the end of the age, to interpret a non-physical vision of one guy afterwards he died as a physical resurrection, Though no Jew had ever considered the revival of one person before the general resurrection before Jesus

About the testimony of these women:

  • Just because women were Unable to testify in courts of law (unless there were no male witnesses), the ancient church might still devise a narrative where the girls are the earliest witnesses
  • original, the disciples had fled the scene, so just the women were abandoned
  • also it would have been a Fantastic idea for the early church to devise women as the primary witnesses – the fact that they Couldn’t testify in court makes them ideal witnesses and incredibly persuasive
  • too, it’therefore good idea to devise girls as witnesses, because the Romans had a rule that stated that they never killed women, so they wouldn’t’ve killed these women – Romans just kill guys
  • in almost any case, the earliest witness to the empty tomb would be angel, therefore as long as people could Speak with the angel as being the first witness, that’s the best story to formulate

About the consensus of Christian scholars:

  • I’m not saying that Craig’s facts are incorrect, only that attractive to consensus Isn’t valid
  • he has to appeal to this proof, not the consensus

Regarding my naturalistic bias:

  • I really don ’t know or care if naturalism is true, allow ’s Examine the evidence

About the music genre of the gospels:

  • The creative story-telling is common in many genres, it’s ’s not a genre itself
  • things about Roman emperors also has imaginative story-telling

Concerning the legendary nature of the vacant tomb in Mark:

  • First, Christians translated the dreams as a bodily resurrection
  • Secondly, they invented the story of the empty tomb to go with that interpretation
  • Third, they died for their creation

William Lane Craig’s instant rebuttal

The burial:

  • Bill’s case doesn’t Have to know the specifics of the burial, only that the place was famous
  • that the place is important because it supports the empty tomb
  • to emphasise that a resurrection, the tomb would have to be vacant
  • a grave with a famous location is easier to assess

The empty tomb:

  • Ingenious story telling was common at Judaism: retelling OT stories (midrash), romances/novels, rabbinical anecdotes
  • however, the gospels are none of these genres – that the gospels are historical biographies
  • Craig also gave five arguments as to why the tomb was empty
  • the burial story supports the vacant tomb
  • there is multiple separate attestation, then it Cannot Be an ingenious fiction devised in Mark independently
  • the witnesses were at Jerusalem, therefore they were in a position to know
  • about the girls, even though Jesus admired the women, their testimony Wouldn’t be convincing to others, so why invent a narrative where they’re the witnesses
  • the male disciples didn’t flee the scene, for Instance, Peter wasn’t there to deny Jesus three times
  • when the story is composed, who cares what the man disciples did, just invent them on the spectacle anyway
  • the angel is not authoritative, since the angel cannot be contested, but the women can be contested
  • there was no response on the lack of embellishment
  • there wasn’t any response to the earliest Jewish response suggesting that the tomb was empty

The looks:

  • We concur on the looks

The early belief in the resurrection:

  • He states that Jesus called his own death
  • yes, but that would just make people to believe that he had been a martyr, not that he was the messiah – something else is needed for them to maintain their believe that he had been the Messiah even when he died, because the Messiah wasn’t assumed to die
  • and Needless to Say, there was no expectation of a single person rising from the dead before the general resurrection, and clearly not the Messiah

The validity of scholars:

  • Jewish scholars such as Geza Vermes and Pinchas Lapide accept these minimal details like the empty grave, it’s not only Christian scholars

Against Crossley’s hallucination hypothesis:

  • It doesn’t clarify the empty the tomb
  • that it doesn’t clarify the ancient belief in the revival
  • hallucinations could only lead into the notion that God had exalted/glorified Jesus, not that he was bodily raised from the dead
  • that the hallucination theory cannot accommodate all the different types of looks; individual, team, skeptic, enemy, etc..

The pre-supposition of naturalism:

  • If Crossley is not devoted to naturalism, then he Ought to Be open to the minimum facts as well as the best explanation for these details
  • the hallucination theory has too many problems
  • the revival hypothesis explains all, and well

James Crossley’s instant rebuttal

Religious pluralism:

  • Nicely, there are lots of other spiritual books
  • these other religious books have overdue resources, and are filled with legends and myths, without any eyewitness testimony
  • so why should people trust 1 Cor 15 as well as the early resource for Mark and the other early eyewitness testimony in the New Testament?
  • In case other spiritual books can be rejected for historic reasons, then the New Testament can be rejected for historical reasons

Genre:

  • The genre of early biography can include and commonly incorporates invented legendaryt story-telling
  • this is common in Roman, Egyptian and Greek literature and everyone accepts that

Empty tomb: several attestation

  • Fine, so perhaps the empty tomb is multiply exemplified, but just gets back to some belief, not to a fact
  • multiple attestation is not the sole standards, and Craig Should use the other standards to make his case more powerful

Empty tomb: invented

  • When there’s a belief in the resurrection brought on by the dreams, then the empty tomb would have to be devised
  • why aren’t there more reliable stories of folks visiting the vacant tomb in more sources?

Empty tomb: function of the women

  • There are girls who have a significant part in the Bible, like Judith and Esther
  • Mark’s passage may have used girls who subsequently kept quiet in order to explain why no one knew where the vacant tomb was
  • if the fleeing of the men is plausible to explain the girls, then why don’t you use that? why appeal to the supernatural?
  • We should prefer any excuse That’s naturalistic even if It’s Not as Great as the unnatural explanation at describing everything

Empty tomb: embellishment

  • Nicely there is an angel there, which ’s an embellishment
  • anyway, if you say there isn’t any embellishment, what are you comparing it to that makes you say ?

Appearances: anthropology

  • That I ’ve read anthropology literature that has some cases where people have hallucinations as groups

Appearances: theology

  • The hallucinations Wouldn’t be interpreted against the background theological beliefs which ruled the revival of one man before then general resurrection of All of the righteous dead
  • these events might have been so compelling that they made Christians, and skeptics like James, and enemies such as the Pharisee Paul abandon all of their previous history beliefs, proclaim the new doctrine of a crucified and resurrected Messiah that nobody had ever anticipated, and then proceeded on to die for that belief
  • the hallucinations could have shifted All Their theology and reversed All Their beliefs regarding the what the word resurrection meant

William Lane Craig’s conclusion

Supernaturalism:

  • Not one of the four facts are unnatural, they’re organic, and ascertained by historians utilizing ordinary historical approaches
  • the supernatural part just comes right after we determine on the facts when we are deciding which explanation is the best
  • a tomb being found empty Isn’t a miraculous fact

Genre:

  • The gospels Aren’t analagous to these rabbinical stories, the purpose and relationship is different

Empty tomb:

  • What numerous attestation shows is that it Wasn’t made-up by Mark
  • along with the argument has been augmented with other criteria, such as the criterion of embarrassment and the standard of dissimilarity
  • Judith and Esther Are Extremely rare exceptions, commonly women Weren’t seen as trusted witnesses
  • when the story had been devised, whatever purpose that the inventors needed would’ve been better served by devising man witnesses
  • Craig grants which the angel may be an embellishment to the sake of argument, however there are no other embellishments
  • the actual embellishments occur in forged gnostic gospels in the second and third centuries, where you will find theological motifs added into this bare fact of the empty tomb (e.g. – the speaking cross in the Gospel of Peter)
  • he had no response to the oldest jewish response which indicated an empty tomb

Belief in the resurrection:

  • There was no means for Jewish people to translate an appearance because of physical resurrection before the end of the world, they didn’t expect that
  • they could have imagined exaltation, but maybe not a physical resurrection

James Crossley’s end

Supernatural explanation:

  • As long as there is any other other possible naturalistic explanation, we should favor that, no matter how improbable

Creative tales:

  • A Number of those ingenious stories appear inside the lifetimes of these people connected to the occasions (none mentioned)

Embellishment:

  • You need to compare to previous stories when looking for embellishments, not later
  • and we don’t possess some previous resources, so we just don’t understand the extent of the embellishment

Jewish response:

  • They likely only heard of the empty grave, also didn’t check on it, then invented the stole-the-body explanation without checking to determine if the tomb was empty or not

“LOVE YOUR ENEMIES LENT 2019”

ATTENTION, USGF SPECIAL FORCES PRAYER WARRIORS!!

PRAYING FOR THE CONVERSION OF POOR SINNERS!

This Lent, I am asking that we join together praying to the conversion of poor sinners. I believe we must take care of the most influential who are doing the most harm. First, in regards to mind will be those who direct Catholics in the wrong direction. Especially, but not restricted to, individuals who are in positions of power and profess to be Catholic, although advocating falsehoods and immorality, leading Catholics to believe that this is somehow the “New Catholicism. ”

“LOVE YOUR ENEMIES LENT” goes for 40 days, starting on Ash Wednesday and moving until April 15 (Day 54). We’ll name a person daily, and keep a running record. I invite you to maintain a notebook, and record each title, and apologize over that laptop each day.

Allow ’s ask God to convert those poor sinners!!! Today, we pray for Maria Cantwell.

St. Michael the Archangel Prayer of Reparation
(Given in 1916 from St. Michael to kids at Fatima)

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages, and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. Throughout the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Daily Prayer for Priests

O Almighty Eternal God, look upon the face of Thy Christ, and also for the love of Him that is the Eternal High Priest, have pity Thy priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of the vocation that is in them by the imposition of the bishop’s hands. Keep them close to Thee, faking the Enemy prevail from them, so that they may not ever do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of the sublime vocation.

O Jesus, I pray Thee for Thy faithful and fervent priests; for Thy unfaithful and tepid priests; for Thy priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Thy tempted priests; for Thy lonely and desolate priests; for Thy young priests; such as Thy aged priests; for Thy sick priests, such as Thy dying priests; for the souls of Thy priests in purgatory.

But above all I commend to Thee the priests dearest to methe priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I helped, and that gave me Thy Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught me and instructed me, or helped and encouraged meall the priests to whom I am indebted in any other manner, especially (name here). O Jesus, keep them all close to Thy Heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in life. Amen.
