What nations will become Sodom and Gomorrah?

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”; But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “;If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?” -Martin Luther King Jr.

 

 

The daily stories of police brutality have detailed more than 2.2 million American citizens behind bars and untold numbers of murders by police officers. All this is alongside worldwide conflict,  1,800 Palestinians dead and 65 Israelis dead during this latest episode of daily bloodbath,  majority of whom are children or civilians. Not to mention the recent airplane crash, possibly killing  298 passengers on MH 17. Let us not forget the missing Nigerian girls. Revelations that child molestation thrives on a multi-billion-dollar child pornography industry had my mind abuzz.

 

The thought of global warming, the air we breathe, the particles we do not see,  and the sun’s descending path toward the earth only confirm my bizarre suspicions.

 

The U.S. and Israel are taking us to Sodom and Gomorrah. Nothing good emanates from a culture that embraces inhospitality and punishes compassion.

 

Today, one percent of the world enjoys untold freedom as those above the law and accountable only to their consciences. That one percent enjoys all its rights while trampling on other people’s.

Biblical times and God ***

 

Islam is interesting, and it complements Judaism.  Jews believe in the Torah, and Muslims believe in the Qur’an.  Judaism values customs, while Islam values the spirituality of God.

 

The sharia makes living and making decisions simple if you are a Muslim man or you interpret the sharia, a qadi.  The sharia  are religious laws that govern non-religious life of Muslims.   No aspect of a person’slife is not covered in rule books.   The Qur’an is  as vague as any other Biblical book, making it open to interpretation.  However it is the infrastructure that is the source of disagreements and problems within Islam.  Islam is divisive creating  sects,  and more factions, and extremists–ALL from  the same religion.  Naturally, the Quran guide those who interpret the sharia

 

Religions are nuanced most often at first glance.  Digging deeper, we see that religions hold divergent or opposing interpretations on seemingly similar Biblical doctrines.  There are probably as many Bibles as there are religions.

 

Ironically, I think the number of canonical Bibles represents distinctly different  Gods and this continued. New religions adopt different bibles or portions of biblical books that are suitable for that religion’s purposes, customs, beliefs, and values.

 

Canonical Bibles are scriptures of God delivered by different prophets.  In ancient times, each tribe or descendent of Noah decided to adopt a different book or apply different interpretations.

 

Bibles are beautiful works that tell of the past and the future.  For us, there is no difference. In contrast to Sodom and Gomorrah, we will not need God to destroy the earth.  We will freely destroy each other in our lust and greed.

 

Come on share your thoughts  on Biblical works and religion.

Easter: The Worst And The Best Of Times

 

And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here. -St. Augustine
And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.

Easter : The Worst And The Best Of Times

If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there. You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in a tomb, but it will rise!

-Clarence W. Hall

***

Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.

-Charles M. Crowe

***

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.

-Charles M. Crowe

And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.

The Holy See of Molesters

The Holy See of Molesters

http://world.time.com/2014/02/05/u-n-slams-vatican-over-child-abuse-cover-up/?xid=newsletter-daily

Every day Catholicism becomes dirtier, filthier, and more hypocritical. It is like the United States system of injustice; some would say Justice but only for the elite– for African Americans and the non-elite, Justice is non-existent in the United States of America. Remember Trayvon and millions like him?

The above linked article shows how structural laws protect pedophiles in the Vatican under the auspices of God and the Catholic religion. It is legal to be a Catholic pedophile priest!

Pope Francis created a UN Commission to investigate the abuse of power and predatory behaviors of priests only to refuse their recommendations, stating they interfered the business of God.

The Commissions’ recommendations are non-binding. Do you think the following recommendations interfere with the dignity of the clergy and religious freedom as the Vatican claims?

The Catholic Church does not accept the following recommendations of the UN Commission formed by the Church.

Transparency at the Holy See – UN Commission recommended TRANSPARENCY of “internal investigations” of pedophile priests. (The Catholic Church feels that intrudes on the pedophile priest’s dignity.)

Defrocking pedophile clergies – UN Commission recommended the Catholic Church to remove ALL KNOWN or suspected child molesters. (The Catholic Church refuses as this violates the pedophiles’ rights. What about the victims?)

Educate children – UN Commission recommended the Catholic Church to empower children with knowledge and awareness of sexual abuse, particularly among priests. (The Catholic Church feels that is not in their job description)

Disgraceful! Our society is so quick to condemn children mimicking the ways of adults. We arrest children, label them molesters when the real molesters gather on Sunday at Catholic Churches all over the world.

Failure to listen and a partnership with the dark side. What do you say? Or do you say anything?
