"Angels we Have Heard on High!" Angel Statues at JFC

Happy Christmas everyone!              Christmas Reflections: Yes, Christmas is coming! Our yearly festival commemorating the Virgin Birth of our Lord, God, Messiah, and Brother, Jesus Christ, will be here, before we know it. We celebrate many wonderful things at Christmastime. We celebrate family and friends and we eat good food at Christmastime, but mostly importantly we celebrate Jesus' Birthday and Yahweh sending His one and only Son to earth to atone for the sins of every single person on the True Cross on Mount Calvary. This is Objective Justification.                Angel Reflections: Advent comes before Christmas, but it is still a part of Christmastime. What is Advent? Advent is...

The Crusades: Our Forgotten Heritage

Hey everyone! Reflections: This is something, which is close to my heart. I have always loved history, since I was a child. My love for history will probably stay with me for all eternity. I have loved the History of the Middle Ages and in particular the History of the Crusades, since I was in eighth grade. My interest in the Middle Ages started in my seventh grade World History class with Coach Freewalt at Shawnee Middle School in Lima, Ohio. He was one of my best and favorite teachers. We sadly only touched the surface of the Middles Ages sadly, but President George W. Bush, who is one of my favorite American Presidents, was running for re-election in 2004....

Holy Baptism: August is my Baptismal Month!

Hey everyone! This is my first blog post on the new version of ohioirishlutheranpress.com . Baptism Reflections:Just to be clear, this blog post is talking exclusively about water Baptism aka Holy Baptism. "Baptism of the Holy Spirit" is a low church Protestant heresy, which denies the importance of water Baptism and which denies that Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit freely gives Salvation in water Baptism. Jesus won Salvation for all of the world, when He died on the True Cross on Calvary, and this Salvation is freely given in water Baptism. Water Baptism aka Holy Baptism is a work of Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and not a work of human beings. Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are...
