For God so loved the world, as to give his only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. Saint John the Apostle

Saint Quote: Saint Isidore of Seville


Heresy is from the Greek word meaning 'choice'.... But we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believed. We have the Apostles of God as authorities, who did not...choose what they would believe but faithfully transmitted the teachings of Christ. So, even if an angel from heaven should preach otherwise, he shall be called anathema.

--Saint Isidore of Seville

  1. Steve,
    very powerful words indeed. Which tells us we are not here to 'fit in with the world' but to change it. And to have the courage to speak God's Revealed Truth, without flinching or accomodating the 'world'!

    Great Quote!

    Peace of Christ to you ALL
