Dr. Moriah D. Hagans First Book The Great Conspiracy Age of Deception Is A Way To Take Understanding Of The Bible To A Whole New Level


(PRWEB) June 08, 2015

Dr. Moriah D. Hagans, a pastor and missionary, has completed her first book “The Great Conspiracy Age of Deception”: an enlightening look at the Bible and the questions that so many have pertaining to It’s teachings and misconceptions.

“I, too, asked questions that I needed answers to; however, in teachings and Bible studies I’ve conducted, I found most people still aren’t getting the answers necessary to take them to the higher level. This book seemed to be the answer.” says Dr. Moriah D. Hagans.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Dr. Moriah D. Hagans’ revealing insight delves into questions about the church, its history, and teachings that follow tradition and fables that so many take at face value.

Dr. Hagans believes that this book will open your eyes to some of the hidden things that have caused us to not follow the truth of Yeshua (Jesus). And although we will still be studying and learning more of His Word until His kingdom comes and beyond, this will give us a jump start in experiencing more of Him and how we can please Him until He comes to get us.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “The Great Conspiracy Age of Deception” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.

Church Missionary Scholarships ? Meet Up To Their Standards

Church missionary scholarships can help you pay for your college and cover several other educational expenses. In fact, today there are many resources that are helping students complete their education. These are not just financial assistances; they offer moral support to students and boost up their self esteem. This is very important because lack of fund usually pulls back students from opting for obtaining higher education. There are many students who possess the desire and dedication to complete their studies and opt for some specific career in their life.

 

There are a variety of resources that can fund your education. The only thing is that you know where to look for them. Many organizations offer scholarships for students who have a different approach towards life and their objectives are directed towards helping people and working for the betterment of the community. As far as church missionaries are concerned, some of them provide financial assistance for education while some provide for travel and other expenses too. Tuition is costly and hence requires funding. This is the first reason why many people do not go for furthering their education.

 

Church missionary scholarships make education affordable for those who have opted to quit because they could not afford. If you opt for loans you will have to start the repayments after getting your degree and this continues for many years to come. You do not know what kind of job you will get in future. So, if repaying loans sweep the most part of your salary, what are you going to give to your family? You cannot mortgage your happiness and enjoyment of youthful years just because you want to have the degree. Well, there are free financial aids available and you need to workout and prepare to apply for them.

 

The application process for scholarships and grants is time taking and solicit your time and effort. However, when you win the scholarship award you will find that everything was worth the relaxation that it gave you. So, find church missionary scholarships, fulfill the requirements, meet the expectations and apply for them successfully following the instructions.

Carol Evanson has writen on thousands of scholarships and step-by-step guides to obtaining a scholarship. Whether you’re looking for Unclaimed Scholarships, Full Ride Scholarships, Corporate Scholarships, Weird Scholarships and Applications. Maybe you want to see if there is a scholarship that fits your needs in her A to Z Scholarship Library.

Papa’s Prayer Intention: January 2012

Our Holy Father’s Prayer Intention for:

JANUARY 2012


General Intention:

For Victims of Natural Disasters.


That the victims of natural disasters may receive

the spiritual and material comfort they need

to rebuild their lives.


Missionary Intention:

Christian Dedication to Peace.


That the dedication of Christians to peace may bear witness

to the name of Christ before all men and women

of good will.

I’m going to spend some time, meditating on these, the Holy Father has a deep spirituality, & we can fly to great heights when we follow his lead.

We so often miss the need for spiritual comfort in peoples lives, perhaps because so many seem not to need spiritual comfort, suffering from a type of spiritual anorexia. If we lack with meeting material comfort needed to rebuild lives, where are we with spiritual?

Interesting, in his Mission Intention, BXVI mentions ‘men & women of good will‘. Hmmm, just like the angels declared to the shepherds proclaiming Jesus birth… “peace to men of good will”. This is thought provoking, people who do not have good will towards someone, anyone, will not have true peace, why? Good will towards all man is essential to peace within. We need to let go of all animosity, & pray for good will towards everyone.

Unforgiveness is spiritual cholesterol, blocking relationship, both with God & others. Man cannot be in a state of grace & have unforgiveness in his heart / lack good will towards another. We need to be set free! Free to Love properly, purely, wholeheartedly. Come Holy Spirit!

We pray everyday, the Our Father, as Jesus taught us to pray, asking forgiveness of our sins conditional to our forgiveness of others… it’s a pretzel grip! We can’t get out of it without letting go of every debt/ grudge we are judging & condemning another of.

“That the dedication of Christians to peace… may bear witness to the of the name of Christ… to men & women of good will.” Those who do not have good will, cannot see Christ, because their hearts are hard towards man, Truth, Justice & indeed, God Himself. Their intentions are not pure, an agenda is at play.

Come Lord Jesus & strip us of all that is not You. We want to bear witness to Your Name. We forgive all sins against us, in Your Precious Name. Amen!

Is Love a fancy or a feeling? What is Love? Do we know how to recognize it?

Why is it that in some people’s presence – or for a long while after, you feel bruised, flat, squashed, as though you have nothing of value to offer or give. Like “What rock have you squirmed out from under?” Less human, treated with contempt, somehow the unspoken message rings loud & clear, you will always be inferior in their eyes, nothing you ever do is good enough. Sound familiar? I’ve just crossed paths with one such as this. Don’t keep falling for it. Whenever you start feeling small, I tell myself -stand with your shoulders high. You were created for Love. Believe.

Pure Love

Some people make you soar, like a kite in full flight. They have a way of making you realize your full potential, you feel treasured, loved & of great worth – even when you didn’t do a thing.

These people are

The sheer comfort of acceptance

Lovers in the truest sense. They love you because… they do… & the person sitting next to you & the next & the next.

They see a crowd as symphony of individuals – well, just because they are. These souls are secure enough to radically love in a way that utterly transforms those around them. They are not afraid of your gifts & talents, or of anyone else shinning.

Being safe

They give Love because they are first open to receive, nurturing it deep within & giving birth to new possibilities of life & wonders of being. The souls of these Lovers are in union with God. They live with passion, these pro-lifers; they live in God & God lives in them.

Secure relationships are built on pure love

True Love has a purity to it, in fact only true love is pure. Those who are pure of heart, pure in their intentions towards others, are our real lovers. They are not interested in gaining anything at your expense. They are interested in YOUR good. These people KNOW that their good, is dependent on your good. This is truth. ~ Sheer Heaven!

Life giving love

Real purity is a state of the heart. What use is it if someone is physically pure, but polluted in thought?

Only the pure of heart can see God. Only the pure of heart can truly love.

Brothers

“To defend his purity, St.Francis of Assisi threw himself into a thorn bush. St Benedict rolled in the snow. St.Bernard threw himself into an icy pond. And you, what have you done? Don’t say, “It’s the way I am,it’s my character.” It’s your lack of character. Esto vir! Be a man! When you decide firmly to lead a clean life, chastity will no longer be a burden on you. It will be a crown of triumph.” ~St. Josemaria Escriva

Where true love is dwelling, God is dwelling there

 

 

Let us ask God to bring about this purity of heart that allows us to truly Love:

“Beloved, we ask for this purity that allows You to be completely glorified in our every thought, word & deed, that we may Love as You Love. With You, Lord, all things are possible. May Your Name be praised. Thank You for coming to set us free, that we might truly have life to the full. We Love You Jesus. Amen.”

At the end of the day, unless we see God in others, they’re unlikely to see God in us. Let us live this new way of Loving, let us see God in all we meet. “Thy Kingdom come… Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Let us bring Heaven to earth & earth to Heaven!

St Therese, asked her Daddy one day:

“Papa, is Love like Glory, in that it’s only worth anything if it is forever?”

Evangelization

Welcome back!

I want o share over the next while, some of the things we do to evangelize are really simple but effective. Ricky & I love to have great Catholic resource on hand to share with others. Here in Africa, one needs a Dish for EWTN & in South Africa, it’s only available via Satellite. As a consequence, few Catholics know their faith. Surprisingly enough even the Head Catechist with 17 years in this leadership role, in my sisters parish, had no clue that skipping Mass on Sundays was a mortal sin.

To get people into the Bible, into the Faith & introduced to Jesus the Eternal Word Made Flesh, we have to give tasty bits of really good material, to spurn them on to growing in their relationship with God – the only way to True Life.

Having cool resources in our back pocket makes evangelizing easy, it takes a love of ones faith a longing to share. The Great Adventure is a big bonus. Having the Scriptures come to life & finding your story in HIStory- thank You God!

These evenings, in south Africa, were loads of fun. Oodles of delicious filter coffee on the tea trolley, fresh & hot in flasks; an urn of piping hot water for tea lovers & of course, hot chocolate. A bring & share of yummy eats, would be on the table. Dvd’s were projected onto a large screen, so visibility was perfect no matter the number & we’d settle in for a event of good laughs & faith sharing. We tried to make everything beautiful, homely & relaxing, so that all felt we’d had a special treat. This was wonderful for the community, the teens would always be there in number, thanks to Fr. Gerald, who’d have traveled far & near to collect the bunch, form the townships & all over. They’d bring their latest ipods & phones to impress us with, & really engaged the topic of the day, asking well thought out questions. The teens also added sparkle with their cute characters & cheeky quips.

Light hearted & life giving, we grew in friendship & faith.

I bless God for my awesome husband who shares my dreams & crazy schemes, a deep love of God & all things Catholic.

Coming Home: Brandt Dotson

Brandt Dotson: you have the floor:

Thank you! During my own personal journey I was discovering more and more about what was wrong about Protestant faiths. I grew up going to many denominations (Wesleyan, Evangelical, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist) and as an adult was actively involved in Pentecostal ministry (non-denominational and Assemblies of God.)

However, the more I read my Bible, the more disconnected I was becoming with other Christians, yet more connected I was becoming with God. Intellectualism and reason is discouraged in non-Catholic Christianity (something I never understood) and the more I was seeking to learn the more discouraged I was becoming. My desire to deep theological training led me to Bible School, but I decided not to attend any because they all had used-car salesman pressure tactics to get me to enroll and they wouldn’t answer questions I had about theology, or help with any direction to find what it is I need to be doing for God.

Brandt is Home

Brandt

I just kept reading and reading the Bible. I’ve read it cover to cover many times (I stopped counting at 8) and I began to realize that I had so much willy-nilly doctrines that I had been told from various different places. And the more I studied the Bible, the less I was seeing the truth of God in the Christian Culture. I kept coming to my own conclusions about scripture that wasn’t lining up with what I was taught, yet I was still concerned that maybe I was getting something wrong with my interpretations. All I wanted was a single voice to guide me, and I could not find it.

So I was curious why the Culture was so different than what I was experiencing when reading Paul, John, James, and Peter’s letters. I began researching 1st century Christianity and discovered the Didache. I was amazed at how simple and straight forward it is. I went back to the origins of the Pentecostal movement, and was amazed to find that it was less than a hundred years old! I started researching the early Protestant theologians, particularly Luther and Calvin, and it was easy to see that they were false teachers.

Wait a minute! If these guys were coming up with wacky doctrines, how is it that so many people follow them, considering all you have to do is read the Bible and see they were wrong! It doesn’t take a scholar, either, not divine revelation. Just a basic understanding of Scripture shows it!

So I looked into Catholicism, something I realized that I knew nothing about. All I had was a culture of anti-Catholic behavior that I was raised with. It was easy to see that the criticisms of Catholic beliefs are so off-base that it’s downright comical. I was also amazed at how reasonable the Catholic Faith is! And I could see that many interpretations of my own that I got from the Bible lined up with Catholic beliefs perfectly!

So I read the Catechism, studied the Sacraments, studied the Mass, and it’s all Biblically based! All the while the Holy Spirit was leading me. My eyes opened and realized that countless different contradictory denominations that can’t even agree on simple Gospel couldn’t be right, and a Church that was still standing after two thousand years with the same unchanged belief couldn’t be wrong!

So I started going to Mass and I fell in love. I wept the first time I saw the Eucharist presented and heard the bell, even though I could not yet partake. I joined the RCIA, but I’ve already learned most of what they are teaching (plus I already have Biblical knowledge from my life as an active Christian.) I just need to learn terminology, and there’s a few things here and there that I haven’t quite come to full understanding and belief yet. So here I am with a heart for God and a head like a sponge.

They (Other Christian groups) say you don’t need reason because you have

Faith & Reason, allow us to fly

spirituality, but I realized that what they call spirituality is really just manufactured surface emotion, and real spirituality is so much deeper than that. Anyone can feel warm and fuzzy listening to positive music and hearing encouraging words, but it’s just emotion (not that positive emotions are a bad thing, because the aren’t.) However, one can encounter the same experiential feelings at a secular concert or watching a good movie with a large crowd. It’s no different than what you feel listening to praise music or a motivational sermon in a packed church. Charismatic worship services are entertainment. Basically, they’re all about pleasing man, and not at all about pleasing God. (Of course, anybody in those services who really do have a heart for God are pleasing Him, but it’s about their own heart, and not about the music.) When the word ‘worship’ is used in the Bible, it involves someone on their knees or flat on their face, completely surrendered to God. Worship is NOT pogo dancing, no matter how fun it is. I struggled with that for a very long time, and I even thought something was wrong with me, and I thought I was horrible because I just couldn’t express myself to God in that way, no matter how hard I tried. It really grieved me, especially when others would say I was being prideful for not waving my arms in the air and having a good time. It wasn’t that at all, though! And I’m a musician with a creative mind, so it’s not like I’m some fuddy-duddy who’s scoffing at the kids. But going to mass made me see than church isn’t about me, church is about God. God says multiple times to love Him with all your heart, all your MIND, all your strength and all your soul. Our hearts let us love Him. Our minds let us meditate on Him and praise Him with our tongues, our strength lets us serve Him, and our soul connects us to Him. If you take one or more of those out of the equation you’ll never fully experience Him!

Thank you for everyone who read that long note!

Welcome Home Brandt! Thanks for sharing your story of conversion into the Catholic Church, this big Home of brothers & sisters from all walks of life. It’s good to have you.

New Evangelization Mission

 

The New Evangelization, “new in its ardor, methods and expression”, was so close to the heart of John Paul II, has found a home in my heart.

In Redemptoris Missio John Paul II says, “the moment has come to commit all of the Church’s energies to a new evangelization and to the mission ad gentes. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.”

Pope Paul VI states in Evangelii Nuntiandi, “We wish to confirm once more that the task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church. It is a task and mission which the vast and profound changes of present day society make all the more urgent. Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize. . .”

”Evangelization will always contain
as the foundation, centre and, at the same time,
the summit of its dynamism — a clear proclamation that,
in Jesus Christ salvation is offered to all men,
as a gift of God’s grace and mercy.”
“The new evangelization,
is not a matter of merely passing on doctrine
but rather of a personal and
profound meeting with the Savior.”
John Paul II

We are all included in this great work of God, as laborers in the Lord’s Heavenly Harvest, “Missionary activity is a matter for all Christians, for all dioceses, and parishes, Church institutions and associations.” J.P. II. At all times, I wish to be found at my Fathers business. Thus quenching this thirst for souls my Beloved is thirsting for. It involves drawing close to Christ, leaning upon His Breast. Learning to Image Him by growing in holiness & doing the Father’s Will.

Many people have lost their faith, their hearts have grown cold. Some need to be re-evangelized, & others evangelized, since their families never managed to pass on a vibrant faith that gives life, they never had faith that bore fruit. Faith needs to be LIVED, renewed, enlivened, fanned into flame. This needs Catechesis, teaching & living testimony of others who are Alive in Christ, who are Renewed by the Holy Spirit, Transformed by The Good News of Jesus Christ & unable to hold back the life that is within them. A Life of Witness. As Jesus taught us, “...come follow me.” We cannot give what we do not have … we must be in a radiant relationship with Jesus, in order to give life. Or watch our work be burnt up.

The world overflows with bad news, if the Good News is not presented with authenticity, as GOOD NEWS … nobody will want it. Good News brings Life, Freedom, Love, Joy & a New Spirit. If we proclaim the Gospel without Joy … the Message falls flat. Oh Cause of Our Joy, come to our aid, that we may carry Jesus our Ultimate Joy to all nations as You carried the Christ Child.

.. it is painfully clear that many Catholics (and other Christians)
have not been effectively incorporated into life in Christ.
Baptized as infants many have never made a personal commitment
to the Lord Jesus Christ and the Gospel.
As adolescents and adults many drift away from the Church.
Evangelization must be directed to the Church itself. ~ John Paul II, Redemptoris Missio

What the world needs now, is a clear proclamation of Jesus Christ! The world needs to be inspired, encouraged & transformed, by faith & reason, the understanding that allows our faith to soar to the Heavens. Evangelization leads to a Civilization of Love. We need to be introduced to a profound & living relationship with Jesus, built on the Rock of Peter, closely united to the Pope & the Church that Jesus founded, formed morally, socially, & spiritually. Not merely sacramentalized but evangelized. These two need to go hand in hand!

This takes effort of a mighty team, the Church & the Laity, joining hands. John Paul II, said this in his address to the Bishops in Latin America, ”. . . the bishops together with their churches [ought to be] engaged in forming and increasing the number of laity who are ready to collaborate effectively in the work of evangelization.”

The message of Jesus Christ needs to transform all aspects of life. From the courtrooms to the hospitals, to the bedroom, to Wall Street, every school & entertainment area. There must not be an area of live left that is not united to Christ, Redeemed & made new. Jesus came to make all things new. Come Holy Spirit.

“It is not possible,” John Paul II states,”to bear witness to Christ without reflecting his image, which is made alive in us by grace and the power of the Spirit.” in Redemptoris Missio. “Holiness must be called a fundamental presupposition and an irreplaceable condition of everyone in fulfilling the mission of salvation in the Church. The universal call to holiness is closely linked to the universal call to mission. Every member of the faithful is called to holiness and to mission.” He also states,”the future of mission depends to a great extent on contemplation. Unless the missionary is a contemplative he cannot proclaim Christ in a credible way.” A “person of the Beatitudes (poverty, meekness, acceptance of suffering and persecution, the desire for justice and peace, charity)… the characteristic of every authentic missionary life is the inner joy that comes from faith. . . the one who proclaims the”Good News” must be a person who has found true hope in Christ. “

“Missionary activity, renews the Church, revitalizes faith and Christian identity, and offers fresh enthusiasm and new incentive. Faith is strengthened when it is given to others!”

“…entering a new missionary age,which will become a radiant day bearing an abundant harvest, if all Christians, and missionaries and young Churches in particular, respond with generosity and holiness to the calls and challenges of our time.”
