“Hide Me Under the Shadow of Your Wings” Psalm 17

The Christian Gazette

A Prayer of David

Hear a just cause, O LORD

Attend to my cry;

Give ear to my prayer that is not from deceitful lips.

Let my vindication come from Your presence;

Let Your eyes look on the things that are upright.

You have tested my heart;

You have visited me in the night;

You have tried me and have found nothing;

I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

Concerning the works of men,

By the word of Your lips,

I have kept myself from the paths of the destroyer.

Uphold my steps in Your paths,

That my footsteps may not slip.

I have called upon You, for You will hear me, O God;

Incline Your ear to me, and hear my speech.

Show Your marvelous lovingkindness by Your right hand,

O You who save those who trust in You 


From those who rise up against them…

Wicked Judges Will Be Judged Psalm 58

The Christian Gazette

God, the Father watches us all everywhere. God, the Father watches us all everywhere. (Photo credit: angelofsweetbitter2009)

Do you indeed speak righteousness, you silent ones?

Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men?

No, in heart you work wickedness;

You weigh out the violence of your

hands in the earth.

The wicked are estranged from the womb;

They go astray as soon as they are

born, speaking lies.

Their poison is like the poison of a

serpent;

They are life the deaf cobra that stops

its ear,

Which will not heed the voice of

charmers,

Charming ever so skillfully.

Break their teeth in their mouths, O

God!

Break out the fangs of the young lions,

O LORD!

Let them flow away as waters which

run continually;

When he bend his bow,

Let his arrows be as if cut in pieces.

Let them be like a snail which melts

away as it goes.

Like a stillborn…

Aquinas on Faith and Reason

THINKAPOLOGETICS.COM

Thomas Aquinas (1224–1274) was a theologian, philosopher, and the consummate apologist of the medieval church. Born in Italy, he joined the Dominican order. He was canonized by the Roman church in 1326. Aquinas wrote De anima (On the Soul), De Ente et Essentia (On Being and Essence), De veritate (On Truth), On the Power of God, Summa contra Gentiles, and The Unity of the Intellect Against the Averoeists. By far his most important and influential writing went into his magnum opus systematic theology, Summa Theologica, which was still unfinished at his death.

The thought of Aquinas is rich and varied. He wrote on many topics, including faith and reason, revelation, knowledge, reality, God creation human beings, government, and ethics. His mind was intensely analytical, making his arguments difficult for the modern reader to follow. His writing style is sometimes dialectical and highly complex, especially in Summa Theologica.
