Are You a Sinner?

On Theologically Thinking, we hear from Fr. Athanasios Haros. He reminds us that when we hear stories of judgment and sin in the Scriptures, most of us don’t want to admit the Lord is speaking to us. It is easier for us to adopt the attitude of the Pharisee (Luke 18.10-14) by thanking God we aren’t like those other people. But the fact is we are sinners who depend upon the mercy of God and the sooner we understand that reality, the sooner we will go away justified by the Lord.

IT’S TIME TO SPEAK OUT!

Across the world, Christians are suffering for their faith. Attacked by ISIS and harangued by extremism, Christianity is in danger of being eradicated in the lands of its birth. Yet very few people in the West seem to care — or even know!

That’s why we at OCN believe it’s time to speak out. We’ve covered this issue for a long time, but want to dedicate even more resources to raising awareness and spurring action, using our massive social media following. We reach MILLIONS of people per week, and it’s time for collective action.

Please support this effort by giving to our “10 cent per day” campaign. 100% of your gift will go directly to expanding this ministry, 0% to overhead. Together, we can and will make a difference!

— Fr. Christopher T. Metropulos, OCN Executive Director
