CATHOLIC ARCHDIOCESE OF DETROIT: THE DANGER OF MAKING EXCUSES FOR SIN


Making excuses is a part of life. For some, excuses are practically a way of life, becoming so common that it’s almost tempting to call them a routine. Everybody is guilty of it, but for Catholics, the habit of making excuses can be dangerous. Your Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit would like you to know why.
When a person experiences hardships in life, it can begin to shape the tone for who that person is to become. Hardships have the potential to help us grow, but on the other hand, they can also turn into an excuse NOT to grow. Thus, there are people who blame their ill behavior and sinful ways on a bad childhood, a mean teacher, a slave-driving boss, an indifferent spouse, etc.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2olDMsB

OLD ST. MARYS DETROIT: 4 REASONS WHY YOU NEED THEOLOGY IN YOUR LIFE


The word ‘theology’ often triggers negative reactions—sometimes, even among Christians who frequent churches like Old St. Marys in Detroit. Every so often, you’ll hear someone say they don’t need theology to be good. But the truth is, every believer needs theology. In fact, it’s necessary in everyday life!
What is theology and why should you study it”
The word theology is combination of the Greek words ‘theos,’ meaning ‘God,’ and ‘logos,’ meaning ‘study’ or ‘discuss.’ Basically speaking, theology is the study of God, but this definition is an oversimplification. Since God is a creator who acts in the world and is the source of all that is good, theology includes so much more. Here are four reasons why Christians like you should study theology.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2olCHkz

CATHOLIC CHURCHES IN DETROIT—HAVE SOMEONE TO TALK TO ABOUT DEPRESSION


Depression can be terrifying. To those who suffer from it, the world can be such an ugly and unfriendly place. A dark cloud constantly hangs overhead, and you always feel heavy and painful. And the worst part of it all is that you remember how it is to be happy, and you can’t seem to go back to that place.
Does it help you to know that you are not going through your ordeal on your own? You may not believe it, but God experiences your depression with you. He goes through what you go through, and He is waiting for you to take your hand and help you understand that no, you are not alone.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2oFqJWf

DETROIT CHURCHES: UNMASKING THE FALLACY OF THE EUTHYPHRO DILEMMA


Titus 1:2 says, “It is wrong to lie because God cannot lie.” Thus, lying is sin because God is inherently good, and He is incapable of it. This means that God did not discover that lying was wrong, nor did He declare it to be wrong. This means that God does not declare something to be good or say something is inherently good. Put simply, God is the standard of what is good. And so, for the Christian, the Euthyphro dilemma presents no dilemma at all, because neither of its positions represent Christian theology.
A visit to a church in Detroit will inform you that the Euthyphro dilemma has been addressed a long time ago. So why do secularists keep bringing it up? Unfortunately, bad arguments will always find their way back into fashion. As long as you know how to defeat it, then it can’t be used as a weapon against your faith.Read more on this article.http://bit.ly/2oly2Pl
