Your Questions Please! Part Four

YOUR QUESTIONS PLEASE!             #4                    8/24/2014

Jesus said, ‘When someone has been given much, much will be required in return;
and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.’

This passage haunts me.

Do we know when we have returned as much as Jesus requires, or have we entrusted as much as He required?

Do most religions read this passage and act on it?

It is a quick and sharp reminder
that we are being overheard
and that our words matter.

Your Questions Please - Part Three!

Why don't Roman Catholics say the entire Lord's Prayer?

Before I get to the specific question, let me say more about the Lord’s Prayer in general.

The Lord’s Prayer (the ‘Our Father,’ the ‘Prayer of Jesus,’ etc.) is found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. In Matthew 6, it forms part of the Sermon on the Mount. In Luke 11, the disciples ask him to teach them to pray as he prays. The wording is slightly different between Matthew and Luke...
