Earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. Jude 3 [KJV]

In your hearts reverence Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence.

1 Peter 3:15 [RSV]

. . . I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some. I do all this for the sake of the gospel, that I may share in its blessings. 1 Corinthians 9:22 [NIV]

So far as a man may be proud of a religion rooted in humility, I am very proud of my religion; I am especially proud of those parts of it that are most commonly called superstition. I am proud of being fettered by antiquated dogmas and enslaved by dead creeds (as my journalistic friends repeat with so much pertinacity), for I know very well that it is the heretical creeds that are dead, and that it is only the reasonable dogma that lives long enough to be called antiquated.

--- G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936), the English literary giant. From his Autobiography (1936) ---

To the best of my knowledge, all of my theological writing is "orthodox" and not contrary to the official dogmatic and magisterial teaching of the Catholic Church. In the event of any (unintentional) doctrinal or moral error on my part having been undeniably demonstrated to be contrary to the Sacred Tradition of the Catholic Church, I will gladly and wholeheartedly submit to the authority and wisdom of the Church {Mt 28:18-20; 1 Timothy 3:15}.

This website is dedicated to my brother, Gerry Armstrong (12 November 1948 - 15 February 1998), instrumental in my evangelical conversion in 1977. He fought a valiant fight against leukemia and its complications for nine years, and inspired all who saw him with his courage, perseverance, and optimism during his many physical trials (which was strong evidence of God's grace). He will be sorely missed by many.

I think that what we suffer in this life can never be compared to the glory, as yet unrevealed, which is waiting for us. Romans 8:18 [Jerusalem Bible]
