The Catholic Defender: Hell is for Children

Posted by John Benko - August 30th, 2013

I have written about fatherless families and the problems associated there along with problems of women being made as objects as opposed to being truly liberated as a child of God.

The results are what is happening to the children. There is the loss of spiritual direction and leadership by their Fathers.

There is the lack of respect many of them have for their Mothers because many of them struggle trying to work, be Mother, and play father as well.

Many children are being raised without much parental supervision or love. Many children find gangs that give them a sense of “family” which digs them deep into drugs, sexual promiscuity, and rebellion.

The attack on the family is so strong that people’s lives are disenfranchised from God, his Church, and the true family. This is the purpose of the “Progressive”.

President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”
President Reagan also had said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are… I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

The Importance of religion and family, President George Washington said:“Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and Morality are indispensable supports… And let us with caution indulge the supposition, that morality can be maintained without religion… reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” 

“It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible.”

Since we decided to through the bible out of the public schools along with the Ten Commandments, all hell has broken loose. Matthew 18:6-7 states, Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea. Woe to the world because of things that cause sin! Such things must come, but woe to the one through whom they come”!

Planned Parenthood seems to have been caught with an undercover tape showing a nurse teaching young teenagers to lie promoting an underground sex trade as shown on Bill O’Reilly 1 Feb, 2011.

Recently, the Florida State Director of Child Protective Services was arrested for child porn. The very services designed to protect children end up helping in many cases, the monsters they are sworn to stop.

Working in the Emergency Room, being in charge of an Emergency Room, to see physical sexual abuse of children was one of the most difficult things to have to respond to. This is being seen in Emergency Centers all across America. 

The family is still the most important stable foundation for all children. To have loving parents, both father and mother is the Lord Jesus Christ’s intent to raise children.

I prefer that children remain children throughout their formative years so that their foundations will not only give them the better hope for tomorrow, but also our Country.

You have to wonder where the parents were when their teenagers (16 year old Demetrius Glen) went out and killed an 88 year old WWII War Hero Delbert Belton.

Mr. Belton was simply waiting for someone to come out of the store ensuring that they would be safe at night when two teenagers attacked him.

They said they killed him because he fought back defending himself? Where were these teenagers Fathers? I’ve not heard anything reporting on the status of the parents.

Where were the parents when three Oklahoma teens killed an Australian baseball player because they were “bored” and thought it would be “fun” to kill someone.

Christopher Lane was visiting Duncan, Oklahoma with his girlfriend when he passed a home where the boys were staying.

He was simply out jogging at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Where was the parents who should have had some authority within that home? Three teenagers kill at random, where were the Parents?

The family is under assault and lives are being destroyed.

*BEST OF DTB #224* The Catholic Defender: True Religion

Posted by John Benko - October 28th, 2012

In the world of apologetics, it is easy to stay motivated responding to the attacks of the Anti-Catholics which is most important.
James 1:27 tells us, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world”.
Certainly this includes being unstained by false doctrines and false philosophy.
The acceptance of worldly humanistic values. We are to stay faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Faith.
St. James does recognize this importance, but he also sees importance to care for those who can not help themselves.

The orphans and widows represent the poor.
Jesus reminded Judas that the Church would always have the poor to support (John 12:8) but that he would not always be with us.
At least not in the normal presence, as Jesus is with us in and through his Catholic Church. Mother Theresa recognized Jesus in the poor she cared for so diligently.
Recently, I learned that there are hundreds of thousands of Senior Citizens who live without family in homes where they are left alone.
They no longer are part of their family structure as they become conveniently laid aside. Many of them barely get a picture of loved ones let alone a phone call or personal visit.

There are millions of children abused and neglected in the greatest country of the world.
There have been nearly 60,000,000 abortions in America since 1973. When we see people hurting, Jesus is reflected in their lives. The Lord’s word soon come to life, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me (Matthew 25:40).
The Catholic Church as an institution has done far more good to help the poor maintaining hospitals for the sick, orphanages for orphans, safe houses for runaways, soup kitchens for the hungry, and many other important causes in our day.

The pro-life cause is one of the most important battles of our time, the care of the Mothers, the helping the sinner who has lost their way because they were caught stained by the world.
Jesus, through his Church cures the sick and restores the prodigals.
There is still much to be done. Catholics, let’s not become complacent and lose ground in the battle for souls. Get involved in your Parish, support your Priest and help out your Diocese.
Money is not always the most important thing, sometimes your time and effort goes along way.
Let’s not be caught looking through “Rose Colored Stain Glass Windows” and may we be found serving our Lord in the needs of serving his people.
