Jesus died and resurrected for you for the forgiveness of all of your sins! Glory to Yahweh, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit! We will have a Bible Reading in a little bit and, with grad school winding down for a while, I plan on doing a lot more blogging in the near future like old times. I have a lot of great ideas for blog posts and I want to look at more theology over the next several weeks starting next week and moving forward into Christmas, since I'll be done with my Thesis Proposal...

The 17th Anniversary of my Holy Baptism and my Masters Thesis Proposal

Happy Pentecost and Late Autumn Greetings! Holy Baptism Reflections: The following text is my Preliminary Thesis Proposal for my masters thesis at American Military University: Preliminary Thesis Proposal           The Lutheran understanding of Holy Baptism is the most Biblical interpretation of the Doctrine of Holy Baptism and it is the most historically accurate interpretation of it in accordance with the understanding of this Doctrine shared by Jesus, His Holy Apostles, and the Church Fathers like St. Ambrose of Milan, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Patrick of Ireland, and others. Sadly, Holy Baptism has divided Christianity since the Reformation due to the Anabaptists not accepting Jesus, the Holy Apostles, and the Church Fathers at their collective word on this critically important...

Ten Year Anniversary of my First Book "The Adventures of Richard McMurphy" Post 1: Singing

Pentecost Greetings! Ten Year Anniversary Reflections: On August 11, 2011, my First Book The Adventures of Richard McMurphy was published and I, James O'Flannery, became a published author and self-publisher. This Wednesday August 11, 2021, Ohio Irish Lutheran Press will officially begin celebrating The Ten Year Anniversary of the Publishing of The Adventures of Richard McMurphy and this is revolutionary in nature, because it is a novel, which incorporates Holy Scripture and Christian Hymns. The Holy Scripture and the Christian Hymns are very important to the plot and the overall text of the story, because the characters read these passages of Holy Scripture and they sing these Christian Hymns. How many other novels have the characters reading so much Holy Scripture and singing...
