99:9 here with another newsletter. Here’s the new content I uploaded this week:
As we sin, in the same way are we punished. There is always a price to pay for sin. No one enjoys the negative consequences of their actions, but none can escape them. And yet, we still sin anyway, already knowing what will happen. Why? Because we’re unwilling to give up the vices at the root of our sins. But if we don’t let go of the vices that weigh us down and start swimming, we’re going to drown in our sins.
The New Testament doesn’t actually use the word “Empathy.” And yet, it’s an inherently Christian Virtue. Jesus showed us the example of His infinite Divine Empathy, and even Jesus Himself Is Empathy. Scripture may not identify it by name, but the Virtue of Empathy is one of the foundational Virtues of a Christian life. Read Part 21 of Victory in Virtue to learn more.
The latest book review in the Christian Book Corner is on Easy Essays by Peter Maurin. Peter Maurin was a colleague of Dorothy Day, and I’ve already reviewed one of her books for the Christian Book Corner. In Easy Essays we read about Peter Maurin’s philosophy of Christian anarchy, and his vision for a better society. Check out my latest Christian book review to learn more!
Well that’s all for the week. I hope this gives you something good to read on your Sunday. Enjoy the week. I’ll be back next week with the next newsletter!
