Hey Hollywood, a bit of advice for all your famous folk dealing with the dissemination of nude photos of themselves- STOP TAKING NUDE PHOTOS OF YOURSELVES.
Why do Christians demand so much from God and so little from themselves?
Israel on Sunday confiscated nearly 1,000 acres of privately owned Palestinian land near an Israeli settlement south of Bethlehem in the West Bank — a move described by Israeli rights group Peace Now as “unprecedented in its scope since the 1980s.”
Settlements built on Palestinian land occupied by Israel, including East Jerusalem, are deemed illegal by the United Nations. Israel’s refusal to halt their construction and expansion has at times arrested the peace process and increased resentment and distrust among Palestinians.
In a statement published on its website, Peace Now condemned the latest land confiscation and said it further damaged the chance of achieving a last peace between Israelis and Palestinians based on a two-state solution.
“Peace Now views this declaration as proof that Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu does not aspire for a new ‘Diplomatic Horizon’ but rather, he continues to put obstacles to the two state vision and promote a one state solution,” the group said.
The oppressed invariably become the oppressors- and don’t even have the intellectual wherewithal to recognize it. And now there will arise many who defend this immorality and decry any denunciation of it as anti-semitism. What it is, though, is not anti-semitism, it’s anti-Naziism.
It isn’t just for the Superbowl anymore that Churches bow the knee to Baal- now Churches are suspending worship for College games. One question- what next, High School games? Middle School? Little League?
Who are the Pastors of these Churches? Where did they get their theological training? Are they Business School grads who have no inkling of what the purpose of the Church is and assume its aim is to ‘attract customers’ by offering nifty activities and door prizes?
People will come to despise such places as that because they offer nothing that the world doesn’t. The biggest mistake the Church can make is to assume the methods of the world. The Church of Christ is called to go into all the world- not let the methods and means of the world invade the Church.
