Down-to-Earth Answers To Heavenly Questions
Key aspects of the Judeo-Christian Faith Tradition
are exquisitely imaged and explained by
combining timeless, religious art with extensive citations
from the Bible, the Catholic Catechism and other
official Church documents, illustrating the rich patrimony
of the original, authentic, universal Church,
as well as its’ primary rationale, practical application
and eternal benefits, in a profound, insightful
and (hopefully) most enjoyable way.

The True Story of Our Salvation In Jesus Christ
The “Hows” and “Whys” are explored and illuminated
according to the official rubrics of The Sacred Deposit of the Faith,
suitably enhanced by authentic, insightful excerpts
from the writings and reflections of some of the greatest
theologians, saints and scholars, of all time.

Extraordinarily Powerful, Yet Easy To Understand
“Overcoming” presents a litany of rational, logical
and deeply satisfying divine truths to the faithful,
while also serving as a “basic primer” on Christianity
for people of non-Christian faith traditions,
or people of no faith tradition, at all.

One Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words
The masterful expressions and subtle nuances
of the classic illustrations greatly enhance the overall experience.

Overcoming the World, the Flesh and the Devil,
In and Through Our Lord Jesus Christ
is recommended for anyone who wants to learn more
about the essential tenets of Christianity,
as well as the unique, temporal and spiritual efficacies
of The Holy Catholic Church: the original,
authentic, universal Christian Church,
that was personally founded, authorized,
empowered and perpetually guaranteed
by Jesus Christ,
for the purpose of our salvation.

“Overcoming” aims to respectfully present
the immutable truths of the Christian faith
to “The People of God”

unencumbered by denominational concerns
or political differences,
according to the much brighter light
of our common, Christian heritage

and our grace empowered humanity
in Jesus Christ.


Supplemental use of the Holy Bible
and the Catechism of the Catholic Church
is highly recommended.

Today’s question: Why do I deserve to burn in hell for eternity? If God is love, how can such a thing even be possible?


Question:
Why do I deserve to burn in hell for eternity? Please explain how I deserve to burn in hell, from a human perspective and how can I possibly follow a religion that doesn’t make sense?

Answer: The problems related to “The Human Condition” are probably due as much to “circumstance” as to the personal “guilt” of we who are alive on earth, today. That said, the problem of sin is and always has been, deadly serious!

Due to the Fall of Man (in the beginning, in the Garden of Eden) the default state of all humanity is to be born estranged from God, totally lacking the divine grace that is necessary to enter Heaven, perpetually enslaved to Satan, sin and death, having a natural attraction to sin, as well as an all too human propensity to commit sin.

The only known antidote to perpetual slavery and eternal damnation, is faith in Jesus Christ, the divine man who has demonstrated (as one of us and on our behalf) his total mastery over Satan, sin and death.

The fact that Jesus voluntarily took on flesh, became man, willingly sacrificed himself and then, rose again from the dead, in order to destroy Satan’s power over us (the power of death and hell) while asking nothing in return, except for our faithful allegiance, should be more than sufficient proof of God’s abiding love and tender mercies.

Christians typically swear faithful allegiance to Jesus Christ by being Baptized into his Holy Catholic (Universal) Church.

The Holy Sacrament of Baptism, followed by a regular program of personal prayer and study, along with a lifetime of full, faithful participation in all the work, worship, sacraments and devotions of the Holy Catholic Church, is the time-tested, “Jesus Approved” method of first, being justified by the grace of God and then, proceeding to live a holy life that will serve to glorify God, while preparing us to (hopefully) spend an eternity with him, in Heaven.
