Scripture Reflection

10 Nov 2019 by SHRCChurch, Comments Off on Scripture Reflection

Perhaps the most important decision we make in life is the realization is that our contemporary secular culture is incompatible with Christianity. We thus must be alert to the need to constantly be making choices. Just to go along with what the majority of folks think and do is a disaster and a betrayal of Jesus’ offer of salvation.

Make no mistake about it. The brothers spoken about in today’s first reading had a choice. They could have avoided personal pain by simply going along with the prevailing philosophy. It might even have seemed that their unwillingness to go along was disturbing the peace. Psychologists tell us that when the chips are down, most people will go with the flow. God sent His son into our world to challenge that mentality. He offers us the graces/strength to successfully resist and follow the one true “road”, whatever it takes, to share in His resurrection.

As we hear in God’s word today: for the secular mentality, there will be no resurrection!
