A Catholic Christian Way of Being ‘Green’

Pope Benedict XVI sounded a theme which is common in his locutions and writing; he spoke of a “Human Ecology”. He suggested that “the State should reflect together on the short term future of the planet, on our responsibilities regarding our life and technology”. We need to articulate a new way of being “green”, the Catholic way. That is why Pope Benedict’s calls for a human ecology is so important. Read the full article here:… Read More…

Bethel – House of God

Most of us just like me might be wondering whether God really had a home to stay. If at all God had a home, how did it look like? How was the drawing room, kitchen, bedroom etc? Surely, without any doubts we can believe that the house of God will be very huge, bright and complete with splendor without anything lacking. When we look in the Bible, there is a phrase called ‘House of God’. It is known to be found at least 60 times in the Bible, all of it in the Old Testament (OT).

When we say Bethel, it actually means House of God. The word first occurs in the Bible which is found in Genesis 12:8, when Abram hooked his tent and called it the name of the Lord – the God of Glory. Two generations later, we have seen Jacob using a large stone as a pillow to lie down. In his sleep, he dreamt of a ladder with angels that go up to the God. When Jacob woke up, he took oil, poured it on the stone and again named it ‘House of God’ as he felt the stone was holy.

In the Old Testament, you will also find Samuel using the word Bethel as one of the main towns when he visited Israel. But there is no mention of the word Bethel in the New Testament (NT). But yes, we have our great Jesus Christ, who himself was the living House of God as mentioned by his Apostle John written in John 1:14.

According to scripture, he was known to be the stone that was anointed with oil by Jacob. When you read the Bible, it is mentioned that Olive Oil signifies the Holy Spirit. You can read regarding his anointing in Hebrews 1:9, Peter 2:4/8, Luke 3:22, Romans 9:31-33 and Acts 10:38.
