Teach Them to Hear His Voice
Note: The readings are from the 6th Sunday of Easter. The quotes that I didn't cite are because all of them can be found in the readings for that day. Here's the link: http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings/050513.cfm)
“Unless you are circumcised according to the Mosaic practice, you cannot be saved.” For some these words represent a hardheadedness or desire of some to control the lives of others. I would rather have you believe that these men had all the right intentions. These were Jewish converts to Christianity and taught that the law of Moses is what leads to Christ. In their minds, having all people follow the law of Moses was not only necessary, but it was the best way to live.
As is the case with so many things in life, what we believe to be the best and proper disposition may in fact be the most burdensome. We devote a great deal of our time to planning and working out many things to our advantage. Dedicating ourselves to our work and providing for ourselves and those

The Early Church II-1: The Martyrs
Prologue
Last time we examined the message of Christianity and how it was presented to both Jew and Gentile. The message of Christ was a message of dignity, divine sonship and daughterhood, and a noble mission, namely the salvation of all in the name of Christ Jesus.
This, however, came with many difficulties. There were many who refused to hear the message. Others simply saw God as one among many appropriating what was profitable to them in the Christian message. Others reacted violently. Of these three, it may seem strange to hear that the second problem, corrupted teaching, was actually the most destructive to the Church. While there were those who were outside the Church who simply selected a few points and incorporated them into their pagan theology there were plenty of Christians who, because of culture, (both abundance and lack of) learning, and zeal, caused a great deal of trouble by their words.
In order to counteract these false teachings and bad influences the Church,

Where the Spirit Leads
If they hated me they will hate you. If they kept my word they will also keep yours. This is a cause for hope as well as a word of caution. Christ tells us that those who hated Christ will continue to hate him in you. But there are also those whose hearts are ready to receive Him and yet they wait for you to come to them. Then when you do come to them Christ will be there for that person as well.
The Acts of the Apostles relates this notion to us. Paul and Timothy desired to go to a number of places but they could not on account of the Holy Spirit. It wasn't until a dream told Paul that Macedonia needed him that he was allowed to continue. When we mold our ministry and evangelization according to our wishes it's likely that we won't reach our goal. When we listen to the Spirit and go where it leads us we will be doing God's work in a greater capacity.
Discerning God's call can be difficult, but one manner of discerning His will is seeing what is available to us. Paul neve

Who knew Bush was capable of sarcasm?
"From the day I asked Dick* to run with me, he served with loyalty, principle and strength.  I'm proud to call you friend"
- George W. Bush -
Author John Irving would call that kind of comment "made for television", another way of saying "hogwash" or worms to that effect.
Did Bush think it was Opposite Day? :iconimaginationplz:
Would Dubya's comment be an example of Southern Hostility thinly veiled as Southern Hospitality?
The worst president in history went on to fictitiously say "I will pray for Dick, bless his heart**".

Inspector Chris Bullen shouldn't be executed, but he should be FIRED!
http://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/2542919-police-officer-guilty-of-leaving-post/#.UXxkOWZiq64.facebook
"A high-ranking officer with York Regional Police has avoided a demotion after admitting he left his post as duty officer during a crisis situation to "deliver personal documents" to an individual.
Duty Insp. Chris Bullen, who is also a former president of the Association of Black Law Enforcers, was brought before the tribunal after police video at Aurora headquarters caught him leaving his post during a dangerous barricade situation involving a mentally unstable woman armed with a knife.
Cameras captured him dressed casually in flip-flops, golf shirt and shorts and driving an unmarked police car.
Once he returned, about an hour later, he dressed in his uniform, however he covered police identifiers with a dark jacket and failed to take his gun belt with him, in contravention of YRP directives." - Jeremy Grimaldi

One of the overarching story elements of the new Ducktales reboot since its very premiere has been the mystery behind the parentage of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, specifically of their long lost mother, Della Duck. Her disappearance has had an evident impact on their family, most notably with it being the reason for Donald and Scrooge's falling out. But this episode offers a greater insight into the overall impact that her absence has had on many of the individual characters.

While we still don't know what exactly happened to Della Duck after this episode, we do know that whatever did happen to her was traumatic enough that it not only caused Donald to distrust and drift apart from Uncle Scrooge, but also transform him from a plucky, adventurous duck into someone much more timid and cautious, as he is no longer willing to go on adventures anymore.

Even then, what encourages him to continue going on said adventures, as was evident in both this episode and the very first, has been his concern for the overall well-being of his family, especially his three nephews. Because when his family faces grave danger, no matter how sheltered his sister's past has forced him to become, he's always there to heed the call to adventure.

Of course, the character who shines most in this episode is Dewey. Of all three nephews, he's the one most interested in learning about his mother's past and uncovering the mystery behind her absence. His search for her is driven by his desire to learn more about her and the type of person she was, especially since her never really knew her.

However, the closer he comes to the truth about her, the more he learns that she may not have been the greatest person he once imagined her to be, and it's this revelation that makes him hesitant to continue his search. Of course, just as his Uncle Donald decides to continue adventuring for the sake of his family, so too does Dewey continue his search for his mother, accepting the fact that learning the honest truth about her is more important that maintaining his preconceptions about her.

Overall, this was a really jovial episode that creatively weaves Greek mythology into the Ducktales universe. Watching the antics of characters like Storkcules, Selene, and even Zeus made me want to see more of these characters, especially since they apparently have a history with Donald, Scrooge, and their family. Seriously, am I the only one who want to see a prequel to this episode where we see exactly what kind of adventures they all went on together? Or at least a prequel comic? Can we at least flesh out Donald and Storkuleus' not-so-subtle bromance?

Avengers: Infinity War was released this weekend, and just like every other Marvel movie before it, it's dominated the box office with rave reviews. Hard to believe that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going strong for the past ten years and counting. Even against all odds, they've managed to defy expectations and be nothing short of perfect. So that means they're all perfect, right?

Well, not quite.

As great as these movies are, they're not without their flaws. Being comic book movies, they have their fair share of campy, goofy moments, and while some of those moments like Loki getting tossed around by the Hulk or Star Lord distracting Ronan with Footloose get a pass from fans, others prove to be quite the knot in the Persian rugs of the MCU, even to the point of creating plot holes and inconsistencies.

So for this list, we'll be counting down the Top 11 dumbest Marvel movie moments. Why top 11? Because like the Nostalgia Critic, I like to go one step beyond.

This list will only be focusing on the dumb moments from the movies and not the television or Netflix shows--especially since I haven't watched any of them! Also, these moments will be from all of the movies up until Black Panther, and as such, will contain spoilers. So don't read this list if you haven't caught up with all of those movies yet.

10 years! Hard to believe that a superhero franchise like the Marvel Cinematic Universe has not only been going on for 10 years, but has been continuing to go strong when most other superhero franchises have since fizzled out during that time.

What started as a bold experiment to create several films within the same cinematic universe with a crossover movie tying them all together not only proved successful during the first attempt with The Avengers, but has continued to succeed with each and every subsequent sequel and addition to the franchise.

While other attempts at cinematic universes from the DCEU to the Dark Universe have failed to successfully replicate their formula, the Marvel movies has continued to set box office records and receive rave reviews, no matter how ridiculous their underlining premises, with characters ranging from a man who can shrink to the size of an ant to a talking tree and raccoon.

Now the entire franchise culminates with its third and grandest crossover, bringing together each and every character from all of the previous movies, and helping to bring closure to its overarching storyline involving the villain Thanos and his quest for the Infinity Stones.

Will this third and nearly final installment of The Avengers send the franchise to infinity and beyond, or has the MCU run dry of its alleged infinite success?

Next month will be my themed month, May of Marvels, with blog posts focused on the comic book and movie empire, including reviews of Avengers: Infinity War and Deadpool 2. Since I have most of my think piece posts written out in advanced as rough drafts, I’ve decided to give you all a sneak preview of what to expect over the coming month.

So here’s a few snippets from my upcoming feature blog posts. Keep in mind that most of these are still rough drafts, and as such, will mostly undergo revisions before their final publication.

Today is the big premiere of Avengers: Infinity War, the biggest crossover as of yet within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and a cinematic event that has been more than ten years in the making.

The love for the Marvel movies can be seen across the internet, with countless fan art dedicated to the favorite characters of each and every fan. You could almost say that the fan art stretches out to...infinity!

Of course, for this week's Fan Art Friday, we'll only be selecting a handful of the infinite number of Marvel fan art out there, but if Thanos proves anything, it's that a handful can easily give you the power of infinity.
