What's Wrong with American Christians?
"The struggle is in the mind. We must bury our own monsters and stop condemning people. We are all Christ and Hitler. We want Christ to win. We're trying to make Christ's message contemporary. What would he have done if he had advertisements, records, films, TV and newspapers! Christ made miracles to tell his message. Well, the miracle today is communications, so let's use it."-John Lennon


"How can you kill people, when it is written in God's commandment: "Thou shall not murder'?" Leo Tolstoy

It takes a deep faith in Jesus to speak the truth about Jesus, and only one with the deepest of faith will dare to speak the truth that Jesus spoke.

For over forty years, Reverend Emmanuel Charles McCarthy has been working, writing, speaking and trying to educate the flock that to follow Jesus requires one to accept His Way of Nonviolent Love of friends and enemies.

In his book A Cry to the Churches and Their Leaders to Stop Running from the Nonviolent Jesus and His Nonviolent Way Rev. Emmanuel Charles McCarthy, begins by asking:

What is Gospel Nonviolence All About?

"Fear Not!" The God of Jesus, the God who is Jesus is not going to hurt you--no way, nowhere, no how. The God who is Jesus is love (Greek: agape'), unconditional, everlasting, irrevocable love.

If Jesus knows what He is talking about, then God is a God of Nonviolent Love. God is Nonviolent Love because Jesus--who teaches that He is one with the Father (jn 10:30) and that to see Him is to see the Father (jn 14:9)--is Nonviolent Love made flesh.

No longer is there a need to fight and kill to try to do the impossible--to preserve the intrinsically impermanent in order to have security and peace. Peace and security, eternal survival and everlasting love are given to us because we, all of us without a single exception, are the immortal and infinitely cherished sons and daughters of a Parent who is immortal Life and Love Itself.

As St. Edith Stein expressed it a few years before her death at Auschwitz:

I know myself held, and in this I have peace and security--not the self-assured security of a man who stands in his own strength on firm ground, but the sweet and blissful security of the child which is carried by a strong arm. [1]

Edith Stein was born into an observant Jewish family on the Jewish High Holy Day of Yom Kippur, October 12, 1892. At the age of thirteen, she underwent a crisis of faith and no longer believed in God and decided to devote her life to the pursuit of the truth. When she was 31, she converted to Christianity and for the next ten years spent her days teaching, lecturing, writing and translating. In 1933 she became a cloistered Carmelite nun.

Edith was a celebrated philosopher, a leading supporter of the early twentieth century's phenomenological school of thought, which explored human awareness and perception. She was arrested by the Nazis on August 2, 1942 and transported to Auschwitz, where she perished in a gas chamber on August 9, 1942. She was canonized a saint on October 11, 1998 because of the miracle cure of Teresia Benedicta McCarthy, the daughter of Rev. McCarthy.

Teresia had swallowed a large amount of an over-the-counter analgesic that causes hepatic necrosis in small children. Rev. McCarthy called on their relatives to pray for Edith Stein's intercession and shortly thereafter, while in Massachusetts General Hospital's Intensive Care

Unit she sat up and was completely healthy. Dr. Ronald Kleinman, the pediatric specialist who treated Teresia Benedicta, testified about her recovery to Church tribunals, stating, "I was willing to say that it was miraculous."
