September 19 2009 By virtueonline THERE IS A DIVINE PURPOSE - Ted Schroder

The notion of purpose is not a scientific term. Science can only observe, describe, and draw conclusions. It cannot import from theology (or metaphysics) a belief in a divine ordainer of purpose. But neither can it deny its possibility. There is no reason why the evolutionary process could not be compatible with the achievement of purpose on the part of God.

August 01 2009 By virtueonline PRAYER IN THE SPIRIT - Ted Schroder

St. Paul speaks out of personal experience. He was given a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment him. "Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me."

July 09 2009 By virtueonline THE LIBERATION OF CREATION

In Romans 8 St. Paul is helping us 'make sense of, and hence appreciate, the intricate tapestry of human experience and thought.' He provides a map of reality that enables us to discover clues to the meaning of the universe. This map reveals a process of salvation and restoration of the whole creation. He uses the analogy of human aging to help us see the whole creation as a system that is aging, to enable us to make sense of the world around us, as well as our own lives.
