In Matthew 15 :24-30, Jesus said "it is not right to take the the children bread and toss it to the dog." Did Jesus insult the woman?

A Canaanite woman appealed to our Lord to heal her daughter. The child was possessed of a demon, an unclean spirit, and was suffering greatly. The mother cried to the Lord for help.

When you look at the attitudes of modern day Christians, how would Jesus have felt if He were here?

The high calling to follow Christ is only open during this time period. It is a very special invitation from God to become a part of Jesus’ bride or church class. “Many are called, but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14) If faithful to their call, God will resurrect them with the divine nature (2 Peter […]

Is saying ‘Oh my God’ a Sin?

Yes. It is a sin.​

How can there be three equal Gods and yet there be only one God?

If there are three Gods, “equal in power and in glory,” as the catechisms declare, then it is untrue to say there is only one God. Yet St. Paul writes, “there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things,” 1 Corinthians 8:6. Jesus declared, “the Father is greater I,” John 14:28. The Father […]
