500 Clergy Come to Standing Rock after a week of violence


“Published on Nov 16, 2016

“I look at my brothers and sisters of Standing Rock as the moral compass of this country.”

After a week of violence inflicted by law enforcement on unarmed peaceful water protectors, over 480 clergy and people of all faiths arrived in solidarity with Standing Rock. In solidarity, they repudiated the Doctrine of Discovery, denounced the Dakota Access Pipeline, and affirmed the position of the water protectors on the ground.

Report details sexual abuse by more than 300 priests in … – YouTube

Pope Francis accepts resignation of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick over sex abuse allegations
“..McCarrick has said he had “absolutely no recollection” of the alleged abuse of the teenager 50 years ago but has not commented on the allegations of abuse of adult men and another minor that were brought forward later.

“Pope Francis accepted his resignation from the cardinalate and has ordered his suspension from the exercise of any public ministry, together with the obligation to remain in a house yet to be indicated to him, for a life of prayer and penance until the accusations made against him are examined in a regular canonical trial,” a statement said.

The scandal surrounding him has stunned the American Church because he was a widely respected leader for decades and was a confidant of popes and presidents.

Last month, American Church officials said allegations he sexually abused a teenager almost 50 years ago were credible.

Since then, several men have come forward to allege that McCarrick had forced them to sleep with him at a beach house in New Jersey when they were adult seminarians studying for the priesthood…”

Survivor advocates have bristled in the past when church leaders have declared the abuse crisis in Catholicism over, or have tried to remove focus from the institution itself. When Pope Francis this summer met in Philadelphia with survivors and included some people whose perpetrators were outside the church, many survivors who spoke out were angry at what they saw as a diluting of responsibility…”

Joyce Meyer Opens Up About Being Raped by Her Father Over 200 Times-“I Never Felt Safe” Posted on April 27, 2016 Kelsey StraeterKelsey Straeter faithit.com
“…Even as Joyce started to open up about her dark past, she always referred to it as “sexual abuse”—but in a recent interview posted on her website this week, she admits that term is truly not enough anymore. It was rape.

“Literally, what he did was rape me, every week, at least once a week, until the time I was 18. My father, who I was supposed to be able to trust, who was supposed to keep me safe, raped me a minimum of 200 times,” she said.

“He didn’t force me physically, but through lies, and manipulation, and fears, and threats, I was still forced,” she added. “My father did rape me, numerous times, at least 200 times.”..

The main reason she is being so transparent in her testimony now is because she’s grateful that God’s grace and freedom have released her from the “pretending game” she had to play for so much of her life.

Though the pain and suffering ran deep for many years, Joyce has now been able to find healing through the love of God, who has shown her what a true father’s heart looks like. She even fell in love with her adoring husband, Dave, who reaffirmed that a man’s hands can be gentle, respectful and kind.

“How can that have happened to me, and me be standing here today, if God is not alive and well?” she said. “I want people to know how good God is, and that your struggle is worth it, your journey is worth it. Don’t give up.”

Joyce now loves her life as a mother, grandmother and worldwide Christian speaker, and she hopes that in sharing her story, others may find healing….”

Published on Aug 21, 2018
Following the publication of the controversial book “The Lost Boys of Bird Island”.. there’s renewed interest in the island, 58 kilometers north-east of Port Elizabeth. The SABC has unearthed a permit that was issued by the Monument Council in the 1980’s, granting PE businessman Dave Allan permission for a diving expedition to the Dodington, which sank near Bird Island. Allen is one of the men identified in the book written by journalist Chris Steyn and Mark Minnie. It implicates among others former National Party ministers Magnus Malan and John Wiley, and Allen in an alleged government pedophile ring in the 80’s.

Jeffrey Epstein, a Billionaire Friend of Presidents Trump … – YouTube
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9BHuaQlvTs
“..Billionaire hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein, who has been accused of sexually assaulting underage girls for more than a decade, will appear in federal court today in Manhattan on sex trafficking charges. He was arrested on Saturday for allegedly running a sex trafficking operation by luring underage girls as young as 14 years old to his mansion in Manhattan. Epstein was previously accused of molesting and trafficking dozens of underage girls in Florida, but he ended up serving just 13 months in county jail after the U.S. prosecutor in Florida, Alexander Acosta, cut what’s been described as “one of the most lenient deals for a serial child sex offender in history.” The plea deal allowed Epstein to avoid a federal trial and possible life in prison, and effectively ended an FBI probe into the case. Acosta is now Donald Trump’s labor secretary. Epstein has counted Presidents Donald Trump and Bill Clinton among his friends. We speak with Vicky Ward, an investigative journalist who profiled Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair in 2003 in a piece headlined “The Talented Mr. Epstein.” The magazine’s editor at the time, Graydon Carter, cut out the testimonies of two young women Epstein allegedly molested who had spoken to Ward on the record. Ward later wrote about the incident for The Daily Beast in an article headlined “I Tried to Warn You About Sleazy Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein in 2003.”

Corey Haim’s A-list rapist may finally be named — what took so long? 1 day ago (9.20.16) by Caroline Goddard sheknows.com

“..Feldman has been discussing the sick environment of Hollywood child sexual abuse for years, even detailing the abuse both he and Haim suffered in his memoir, Coreyography. Most recently, last spring he told The Hollywood Reporter about parties for preteen actors where predators groom their next victims, and said that he and Haim had attended many. And he’s not the only one speaking out.

Elijah Wood said he was protected from such predators because his mother would not allow him to attend the parties, and although he later denied firsthand knowledge of rampant sex abuse in the industry, he gave some very telling quotes to the Sunday Times.

“Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind,” he said.

“There is darkness in the underbelly. If you can imagine it, it’s probably happened.”

“..

The documentary creates a stark and sobering portrait of a loose network of Hollywood professionals — some outsize personalities like Collins-Rector, others Hollywood insiders with far smaller profiles — who use their positions of power and influence to sexually abuse and exploit underage (in the film’s case, male) actors whose nascent careers they’re supposed to be supporting. The movie, directed by the Oscar-nominated filmmaker Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil), premiered to some fanfare last November at the DOC NYC festival. But despite Berg’s pedigree and its startling, headline-grabbing subject matter, no top-tier distributors picked up the film for release…”

Elijah Wood Clarifies Comments on Hollywood Pedophilia By DANIEL VICTORMAY 24, 2016 nytimes.com
“…The actor Elijah Wood clarified his remarks on Monday after suggesting in an interview with a London newspaper that sexual abuse of child stars was more widespread in Hollywood than had been reported.

After the interview with The Sunday Times drew international headlines and questions, Mr. Wood put out a statement emphasizing that his comments weren’t based on personal experience.

“Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated,” Mr. Wood said. “But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no firsthand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”..”

A notorious mansion. An alleged assault by a Hollywood producer. A suicide. What happened to Brian Claflin?
By Gus Garcia-Roberts May 11, 2018 | 5:00 AM latimes.com
“..Goddard, a director, producer and theme park designer, has faced similar allegations. Last December, eight former members of a Santa Barbara youth theater group in the 1970s alleged that Goddard molested or attempted to molest them. A ninth was said to have told others before he died that Goddard sexually assaulted him as a child. Goddard denied their allegations…

Claflin’s chance to exit Utah came when he met a man from Santa Monica at a gay nightclub before his senior year. In the letter to a lawyer, Claflin wrote that the stranger told him he “was the most beautiful boy he’d ever met” and that he knew “some very rich and powerful people that wanted to meet me and could possibly get me a job.”

The mansion would become notorious as a site for sexual exploitation of underage boys. It was home to the three co-founders of Digital Entertainment Network (DEN), an early internet content streaming experiment with investment from wealthy Hollywood figures including Goddard, stock filings show.

In his statement, Claflin said Goddard and a friend of the filmmaker persuaded him to inhale nitrous oxide one night, which was the first time he had used drugs. He immediately felt dizzy and passed out, he wrote, and awoke to being further drugged while Goddard sexually assaulted him. “I was in a delirious state and remember saying NO, NO, NO, several times but they persisted,” he wrote. “I just sort of shut down and went somewhere else in my head. After a while I remember praying aloud to God to just make it/them stop.”.

A Florida-based attorney, Jeff Herman, had filed lawsuits against Goddard and “X-Men” director Bryan Singer, both former DEN investors, accusing them of sexually abusing boys in connection with that company, and at a London hotel room in 2006. Singer and Goddard denied the allegations…

He told friends about powerful men in Hollywood who wanted him dead because he knew too much. A week or so before his death, his parents Skyped with him as he barricaded himself in his bathroom, afraid of men he said were stalking him from his roof. On June 2, 2014, Claflin texted his father to “have a handgun nearby.”
..

In one of the suits against him by the two executives, Herman was deposed, and discussed Brian Claflin under oath. He said that Claflin was one of many people he heard from “around the world who said that they were abused by people in Hollywood.

He described Claflin as a witness with important information, having been an errand boy at the DEN mansion in Encino. Claflin was fearful that “somebody was going to try to kill him” because he knew too much about a “gay Mafia in Hollywood,” Herman said.

Brian Claflin’s parents said that they decided to take their son’s allegations public in support of several new accusers — including “ER” star Anthony Edwards — who alleged that Goddard molested them four decades ago.

“..”The explanation for the black eye is now very different,” Foster said, referring to a black eye Hunt claimed was given to her by an abusive Mitchell.

Hunt described some of the alleged abuse to FOX 13 in June:

“There were so many times when I wanted to give up, but I couldn’t do it anymore and I think about how much he would have wanted this,” explained a tearful Mary Hunt.

The bad blood between them began after their nasty breakup. Mitchell accused Hunt of stealing millions of dollars worth of diamonds, jewels and gold from his home safe. Mary said he set her up.

But Foster says the bumps and bruises were self-inflicted.

“There is no evidence that he ever beat her,” said Foster. “This video now demonstrates that she is striking herself in the same area of the face and head that they allege Scott struck her.”..”

My Story of Surviving Sexual Abuse & How To Prevent this Silent Killer | Jenna Quinn | TEDxUTD

TEDx Talks
Published on May 16, 2017

Jenna Quinn is a sexual abuse survivor and the driving force behind “Jenna’s Law” that requires school districts, daycare centers, foster care centers, and child placing agencies to educate children and adults on how to recognize, prevent, and report abuse and sex trafficking.

Jenna Quinn is a child sexual abuse survivor, author, and the force behind Jenna’s Law. Jenna’s Law was the first child sexual abuse prevention education law in the United States named after a survivor to require that each school district adopt and implement a prevention policy that educates students, teachers, and parents on the likely warning signs of sexual abuse, sex trafficking, and how to report. Now, over half the country has passed some form of legislation since Jenna’s Law in 2009. With a master’s degree in communication studies, she is a sought-after speaker who has traveled nationwide, educating and sharing her inspiring story with legislatures, law-enforcement, abuse-prevention groups, schools, communities of faith, nonprofit organizations, and the general public for over twelve years. She has participated in both local and national radio, television, and news programs, and she has dedicated her life to preventing child sexual abuse through education and legislation.

Why Do People Sexually Use or Abuse Children? 1in6.org
A very important question, asked by many people.
And a question – a search or quest, even – that some will struggle with for years.
“…..
Fearing they somehow brought it on themselves, and hoping that understanding the other person will prove it wasn’t their fault.
Still loving the person who used or abused them, and hoping that understanding why they did it will bring healing to their relationship.
Hoping that understanding why the person who used or abused them will help them to prevent other children (perhaps their own), from ever being sexually abused.
Feeling that life is unfair, unjust, random and/or meaningless, and hoping that understanding how someone could sexually abuse a child will bring some order and meaning to life.
Focusing on the other person, including why they did it, can be a way of avoiding one’s own responsibility, as an adult, for dealing with harmful effects in one’s own life, including self-destructive and harmful behaviors. (We mention this possible reason with no criticism of those to whom it applies. It’s not uncommon, and totally understandable, among those still struggling with major negative effects.)

Importantly, people may not be fully aware of some reasons why they’re asking why the other person (or people) did this to them. They may not recognize some hopes they have for the benefits that such understanding could bring. That’s totally normal. Over time the full significance of this question in your life may become clearer – or completely change as other aspects of your life change…”
Why would an adult sexually abuse a child? stopitnow.org
“..Some adults sexually abuse a child to feel the power and control they don’t feel in their relationships with other adults. Sometimes, adults who have intimate sexual relationships with other adults may sexually abuse children in moments of unusual stress, such as after the loss a job or during a divorce. Some adults are primarily sexually attracted to children, and some never act on those feelings. Some adults act impulsively when presented with an unexpected opportunity to sexually abuse a child. Other people, particularly youth with high social status or with social or emotional delays, may not even fully understand the harmful impact of their actions…”
An Ongoing Sex Drive Directed Toward Children

What Causes Someone To Molest?
childmolestationprevention.org
“..
A few sexual abusers will sexually touch a child because they are profoundly intellectually disabled, or they have developed a brain disorder, or they are psychotic. Close supervision and, when appropriate, medications to control the disorder often stop child molesters in this group.

George does not fit here.

Some abusers will sexually touch a child because they have an antisocial personality disorder. Think “anti-society.” People with this disorder may be social, even glib. So why do we call them “antisocial?” Because they believe that the rules of society do not apply to them. They break many of society’s rules. Essentially, antisocials lack feelings for others. In the mind of an antisocial, all of the rest of us, including children, exist to be used. The child molesters in this group appear most often in horrific accounts you see on television and in the newspaper.

“..The cause? They had been trying to summon a ‘Mexican demon’ with two pencils balanced on a piece of paper, like a modern version of the ouija board.

In fact the spirit-summoning game known as ‘Charlie Charlie’ or the CharlieCharlieChallenge has since blazed a trail across the internet in recent days.

It went viral after one video surfaced in the Dominican Republic where it was taken probably a little too seriously by parents,

Dungeons & Dragons?
by William Schnoebelen books by Schnoebelen chick.com
“..For example, someone might have a problem with an addiction (from a purely psychological perspective). The counselor might suggest that the addict role-play what might happen if a friend offers him a drug. This is done several times in several ways until the addict begins to develop refusal skills. The same could be done for people with anger problems or anxiety issues. The point to remember is that role-playing is a major and effective way to teach people new ways of thinking and acting. ..”

“..Amulets are magic charms worn by people to protect themselves from negative energies, evil and injury, and also to bring good luck. Together with other kinds of talismans, amulets are becoming very popular today. They are usually crystals, Celtic crosses, or other mystical jewelry worn as a pendant on a necklace or bracelet or hung on a chain dangling from the rear view mirror of automobiles. These so-called “sacred stones” and other engraved talisman are believed to have mystical powers, which supposedly bring personal protection, success, and prosperity. They are often regarded as transmitters of healing energies and positive vibrations that are thought to promote feelings of peace and tranquility. From archaeological evidence, we know that amulets were very common in the ancient cultures of the Bible lands, especially among pagan peoples..”

Breaking Generational Curses
Posted on August 19, 2011 by The Still Man thestillman.com
“..If the Bible is true, then everyone who dies goes immediately to his reward, be it Heaven or Hell. Therefore, anyone who claims to communicate with dead people is actually communicating with demons.

There are many religions that practice necromancy. Roman Catholicism is probably the best known. Roman Catholics pray to the Virgin Mary and also to dead saints. The Virgin Mary of Roman Catholicism is not the mother of Jesus Christ, but an ancient goddess. However, because they believe they are praying to Mary, who is dead, Roman Catholics are actually communicating with demons. This means that Roman Catholics are practicing witchcraft. They are earning themselves a generational curse.

Moreover, because prayer is a form of worship, Roman Catholics are worshipping demons. In fact, according to Strong’s Concordance of the Bible, necromancy is a form of worship. (See Strong’s #1875 and 4161.)..”

IDOLS AND IDOLATRY AND HOUSECLEANING demonbuster.com
“..
“Housecleaning” is what we call getting rid of anything in your home that may cause you demonic problems. Look through your home as you pray and the Lord will let you know what items need to be destroyed that have become an idol to you. Any type of collection – dolls (roots come from voodoo), owls and frogs (abominations to the Lord, as stated in the Bible), unicorns (lust and financial problems), etc. You may have only one or two of these items, but they are just as deadly as a collection. We have read and heard countless testimonies of what these items can do. Dolls levitate, walk and talk; owls caused cancer and when destroyed the person was totally healed. Please pray and seek the Lord regarding which items you must destroy. With pictures of movie stars you form a soul tie. One example is of a woman who came to us for DELIVERANCE from men and drugs. As I was praying for her the Lord impressed that the picture of Marilyn Monroe that was hanging above her bed was part of the problem. Marilyn Monroe had trouble with men and drugs and she died because of it.

..You do not have to worship any item for it to be idolatry. Just having these things in your home give demons legal right to be in your home.

Deuteronomy 7:25 “The graven images of their gods you shall burn with fire. You shall not desire the silver or gold that is on them, nor take it for yourselves, lest you be ensnared by it, for it is an abomination to the Lord your God. 26) Neither shall you bring an abomination (an idol) into your house, lest you become an accursed thing like it; but you shall utterly detest and abhor it, for it is an accursed thing.”

Do lots of research on items that you are not sure about. You may find that their origin is rooted in idolatry…

BUDDHA STATUES AND PICTURES (some Buddha statues even have rosary beads … surely use an image/idol of one as a spiritual doorway into a person’s home!..”

As stated above, pray and ask the Lord what you need to destroy. The word of God says that he who seeks shall find.

HOUSE DELIVERANCE: After these things have been destroyed then break curses over you and your family and cast the demons out of your house; also anoint your house.

PERSONAL DELIVERANCE: Confess, repent and ask forgiveness for the iniquity of idolatry for you, your ancestors, spouse, former spouses, former sex partners and their ancestors. Break the curses and cast OUT demons (of yourself) having to do with idolatry….

As I watch news programs about a famous author or person being available to sign books, etc., you see long lines of people lined up for this once in a lifetime event. At the Jackson, Mississippi zoo in March, a Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback was there to sign autographs. 5,200 people showed up, and it was the biggest turnout in zoo history for a celebrity. Have you done this? Do you still have something that you treasure with an autograph? What would you feel if someone stole it or it got destroyed? You may need some DELIVERANCE in this area. It could be an idol…

Hypocrites?: Religion-Christianity

dc Talk documentary – “The Greatest Single Cause”

I became a Christian back in the spring of my Sophomore year of college. It was the beginning of my walk (faith) with God (“Heavenly Father”). People around me might’ve seen that and might’ve NOT seen that I’m a Christian based on my lifestyle. For example, there has been times when I swore and the people around me might not even think I’m a Christian. Then there are times when I was “doing” good deeds (e.g. giving food to the poor) and thing I’m a Christian. What it boils down to is not what others “think about” (do NOT judge) me, but what God (Heavenly Father) “thinks about” (I’m a child of Him when I accept Him as my Savior) me. No, no one is perfect (sinless), but instead of “judging” someone-we can pray for them as “some/all” of us are growing in our faith.

Pope Francis’ opinion: better to be an atheist than a hypocrite By Marshall Connolly (CALIFORNIA NETWORK)
2/24/2017 (2 days ago)
Catholic Online (www.catholic.org)
Pope Francis denounced hypocritical Catholics who live what he called a “double life,” and said it would be better to be an atheist.
“LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) — During daily Mass on Thursday, Pope Francis made his opinion clear, that he thinks it is better to be an atheist than a hypocritical Catholic.

Pope Francis specifically referred to Catholics who laundered money or refused to pay fair wages to employees. However, many Catholics do live double lives of all kinds, attending Mass on Sundays while practicing contradictory habits. Such people do damage to themselves because they sin, and they harm the Church because they are a poor reflection of it. Worse, they may inspire others to sin as well.

Pope Francis’ homily was inspired by the Gospel in which Jesus warned against people who “causes one of these little ones to sin.”

“Cut off your hand…pluck your eye out,” Pope Francis said. “Scandal is to say one thing and doing another; it’s double life.”

He warned about living a life that is not Christian adding, “on this, the Lord is very severe.”

What then of atheists?

Pope Francis’ remarks suggest his opinion is that it is better to be a “good atheist,” than a bad Christian. A good atheist could be a person who still lives in accord with the moral teaching of the Catholic Church, even if unwittingly, and despite their ignorance of God….”

KKK Leader Says Members Include ‘Police Officers, Paramedics & Judges’

KKK Leader Says Members Include ‘Police Officers, Paramedics & Judges’
By: Jamal Booker
January 30, 2014 issuehawk.com
“..
A Ku Klux Klan leader in Florida has suggested that its members might be holding respected and prominent positions throughout local communities across the U.S. A grand dragon who oversees a chapter of the Loyal White Knights of the KKK in central Florida said they currently have “police officers, paramedics and judges” in their local roster of more than 1,000.

“They’re everywhere. What you’ve seen is just the tip of the iceberg right now,” said the man, who was interviewed by WFTV on the condition that his voice was altered and face covered by a Klan robe. “We are just proud to be white.”

The KKK leader denied that the organization was a hate group, although he repeatedly used the N-word to describe black people throughout the interview. A separate Klan member who was interviewed and only identified as “Exalted Cyclops” said he thought it was important to “preserve” the white race. “You start looking at numbers, start looking at census and you realize whites are the minority,” he declared.

Although the KKK had more than two million members back in the 1920s, the current roster is reportedly somewhere between 5,000-8,000. They have taken on an extensive recruiting process in recent months by leaving flyers on the lawns of local communities in the middle of the night. Although the content is highly offensive, it isn’t illegal and falls under First Amendment protection…”
Invisible Robes of Injustice: It’s Hard to Fight What You Can’t See 12 March 2014 Written by Jeffrey L. Boney forwardtimesonline.com
“…These are the words written by former Senator Robert C. Byrd in a letter, where he declared that he would never fight in the armed forces with a Negro by his side. This same man, with those racist thoughts, was eventually elected to Congress, and specifically the U.S. Senate, with the full responsibility and power to introduce bills and vote on legislation that would significantly impact Black people in this country for years.

One historical truth that is important for people to remember is that African Americans have always had to deal with the dark forces of racism, not only by hate groups, but by those with the power to disenfranchise, discriminate and even murder. One of those dark forces, that was created to intimidate and keep Black people in a state of fear and bondage, still has a presence in the U.S., and while many members of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) aren’t as easily identifiable as they once were, they are still having an impact by being clothed with “invisible robes of injustice.”

..While many KKK members still wear the traditional robes and costumes, many of them do not. There are many elected officials, police, community leaders and business people who wear “invisible robes of injustice” every day; hiding their true identity and their true beliefs. Sadly, behind closed doors, and in the dark of night, many of them are plotting and planning to execute strategies that are intended to disenfranchise and harm Black people….

..When you look at today’s Congress, elected officials, the prison system, judicial system, the educational system, law enforcement policies and other issues affecting Blacks, there are many glaring examples of how Blacks have been disenfranchised based on the actions and decisions of people with the authority or with the capacity to do so. Many of those actions and decisions are reminiscent to the way the Klan operated and executed their level of terror on Black people in this country without wanting to be identified; they have become unofficial members without the robes and sheets.

What About Hypocrites in the Church? By Robert Velarde focusonthefamily.com

“”Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

–Matthew 7:3-5 (NIV)

“With these witty but also biting words, Jesus causes his listeners – then and today – to carefully examine their own lives. Are we going about accusing others of minor shortcomings when, in fact, we ourselves are ignoring our own behavior? If so, we are hypocrites. Once our hypocrisy is removed, then we are in a position to help others.

Unfortunately, one obstacle to the acceptance of Christianity that is often raised is provided by Christians themselves. Phrased in many ways, the core of the objection is, “If Christianity is true, why are there hypocrites in the church?” In other words, if Christianity is really supposed to change people, then why do some who profess to believe in Jesus set such bad examples? This article will answer the “hypocrisy objection” to Christianity. But first, let’s explore the definition of hypocrisy in general, as well as in a biblical sense…”

Bringing a different treat in Halloween

For the 4th year in a row, I put Bible verses in the the treats I handed out during Halloween this year. I started doing this after giving some thought and prayer about what I can do to be a “light” during this uneventful day as a Christian. I grew-up “ignorantly” knowing the truth behind this “pagan day” until I found the Truth. I didn’t want to just stay in my house with the lights off until all the trick or treaters finished going house to house. I found this idea via online when I was “searching” online what Christians can do during this time of the year.

First I started with candy 4 years ago (would invite friends over for a movie, food, and fellowship or get-together), but switched to juice bottles the last two years (Last year, a friend from another country loved handing out these juice bottles to the visitors at the door. It was a first time experience doing an activity like this as he never did this back at home.). As a “victim” (cavaties that led to high dental bills) of sweets growing-up, I wanted to make sure the kids-youth that came to my door won’t go through the same challenges I did. I don’t want to be responsible in contributing to their health problems (e.g. diabetes, obesity, or any future addictions), like I almost similarly faced when I got older.

This year was probably the biggest number of visitors at my door as I had a record number of 22! The weather wasn’t as warm as last year, but it was probably warmer than it has been for this past week/season. I had a lot of positive feedback of the juice bottles I gave since it was different from the popular sweet candies.

Most of the kids-teens that came by were people I knew from community relationships (e.g. church, work, etc…). The parents would comment later that their kid(s) appreciated the alternative juice treats instead of candy as I explained to them my reason for an alternative health choice.

One group (teenagers) that I won’t forget from this memorable year was when one of them asked me if I was religious after he read the Bible verse taped in the juice bottle I handed to him. I was first intrigued that he recognized it as a Bible verse and then I told him that “religious” is not my definition. Instead I told him it was more that it’s a personal relationship with Jesus. His friend that was close by then boldly stated, “I’m that too”! I smiled and then saw a parent with a kid behind them, which I then replied “awesome” (slowly grew quieter and held back from “preaching”..lol).

Other notes about this year’s event was a “friend” from another local church remembered me giving these Bible verse treats the past two years. She asked if I can print these for her as she wanted to do something similar this year. I have yet to ask her how it went, but I will try to update this when I do talk to her. Also, in our community (Morris, Minnesota), the local schools (college and high school) did a community fundraiser this same evening. The college (as has in the past) collected cans for the local food shelf, which I did my part in donating when a college student came over.

UMM students to Trick or Can for food shelf
By UMM News Service on Oct 23, 2013 at 2:44pm morrissuntribune.com
“MORRIS — Students from the University of Minnesota, Morris will be going door-to-door in the Morris community collecting donations for the Stevens County Food Shelf on Thursday, Oct. 31, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Donations can also be left outside if they are clearly marked for Trick or Can.

While the Stevens County Food Shelf is requesting donations of money or personal hygiene products (soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant), nonperishable food items are also welcome. These include canned goods as well as jello/pudding mixes, crackers, popcorn, coffee, and cocoa. Please make checks payable to Stevens County Food Shelf.

Since 1991, the Stevens County Food Shelf has been a reliable source of help to the Morris community, providing hygiene products and nonperishable food items to low-income households in the area. The Food Shelf serves an average of 100 households, or 300 individuals, each month.

For more information, contact the University of Minnesota, Morris Office of Community Engagement at 320-589-6276.

Unfortunately, no high school student came over, which they were asking for donations to a UNICEF program.

Why Do We Celebrate Halloween? – YouTube

Matt Chandler Explains Why the New Testament Suggests It’s OK to Celebrate Halloween OCTOBER 26, 2018 relevantmagazine.com
“..But, in this clip, Chandler says that while it’s OK to choose not to celebrate Halloween, one story in the New Testament seems to suggest that’s fine too (as long as you’re aren’t being overly scary, demonic or sensual).

He points to 1 Corinthians 8, where Paul discusses whether it’s OK to eat meat that was sacrificed to idols. Ultimately, he says there’s nothing wrong with it, though he adds, “Be careful, however, that the exercise of your rights does not become a stumbling block to the weak.”..”

HISTORY OF HALLOWEEN

When looking at the world today, it’s very obvious to understand why the Father commanded us not to be of this world. When we look at many of the practices, holidays, and rituals that we participate in, the reasons we should not be of this world become so clear. The celebration of Halloween is something that truly emphasizes this point. There has always been an agenda to blur the lines between good and evil. Also an agenda to initiate the world into the occult and to accept the things of Lucifer. After you understand more about Halloween you will clearly see that this agenda is truly in the end stages. Don’t celebrate this wicked day!

Religion: What is Christianity?

Is it a religion?

Religion is a “man-made” institutions like school, government, etc.. Anything “made” by man is “not” perfect, which we will always find something “wrong” in it. Thus, there is corruption (e.g. violence, abuse, etc..) in schools, government, etc.. We then shouldn’t give our 100% trust and total dependence on any of these institutions. Who can we trust then?

Is it violent?

Religion has caused many wars. Jesus taught..

“””Put your sword back in its place,” Jesus said to him, “for all who draw the sword will die by the sword.”Matthew 26:52

Then why there are “so-called” (e.g. KKK-Protestant “racist” group, Catholic Crusaders, etc..) Christians go against Jesus’ teachings. Isn’t it hypocritical?

Misconceptions

Triune God/Trinity

Theology Q&A – God
Dr. J. Rodman Williams 3. God – the Holy Trinity cbn.com
“..Let me give you two verses-and there are many others-that validate Christian belief in the Trinity. First, there are Jesus’ own words in Matthew 28:19: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Second, there are Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 13:14: “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” Incidentally, the Catholic Church did not start the doctrine of the Trinity…”
There is Only One True God By: Dr. John Weldon jashow.org
‘…..The biblical doctrine of the Trinity is vital to understand because it concerns who God is, which is essential for having a proper realization of the nature of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To understand the Trinity is to understand God as He has revealed Himself to be. To misunderstand the Trinity is to fail to understand who God is. ..”
Don Stewart :: What Are Some Common Misconceptions about the Trinity? blueletterbible.org
“…
Summary

There are a number of misconceptions that must be cleared up when considering the doctrine of the Trinity. The following points need to be made. The Trinity is not a pagan idea. It is based upon what the Bible has to say about the nature of God. There is no credible evidence that the Trinity was borrowed from any pagan belief. The Trinity doctrine is difficult for humans to comprehend but not impossible. The mystery of the Trinity means it is a truth that was formerly secret that God has now revealed to humanity. The Trinity doctrine is not contrary to reason. Reason, however, should not be the ultimate test as to what is true and what is false. The doctrine of the Trinity does not destroy the oneness of God. Much confusion surrounds the word person with reference to the Trinity. The three members of the Trinity are persons in the sense of distinct personalities not separate individuals. The Trinity is not formally or explicitly taught in Scripture. The church did not invent the doctrine of the Trinity. The church only recognized what the Bible taught on the subject. Although the term Trinity is not found in the Bible the Scripture teaches one God exists in three distinct persons. Finally we must note that criticisms of the Trinity are based mostly upon misconceptions of what the Bible has to say about the subject. ..”

CLARIFYING MISUNDERSTANDINGS
“….To say, as the minority cult of the Maryanyas did, that Mary was the mother of God through whom He produced a physical son, and both were to be taken as separate gods besides God, is absurd! This ludicrous and heathen concept of the Trinity is completely condemned by both Islam and Christianity! The Quran rejects it in clear terms in Surah 4, Al Nisa, verse 171. The Trinity has also been missuderstood to mean that God is three persons and only one person at the same time and in the same sense. Neither are there three substances in one substance. In opposite to this contradictions the Christians definition of the Trinity is expressed in the Athenasian Creed: “We worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity; Neither confounding the Persons; nor dividing the Substance (Essence).” The word “person” is here used in the sense of “self with a particlular function” (The Illustrated Bible Dictionary” by F.F. Bruce, IVP Leicester, 1962, see “person”)…

BIBLICAL FACTS

“…There are a number of verses in the New Testament that call Jesus and the Holy Spirit God, besides God the Father. (John 8:58, compare with Exodus 3:14; Acts 5:3-4 etc.) In the light of this truth the following verses are understood to be speaking about the Trinity:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name (singular!) of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19).

In Acts 2:38, 8:16, 19:4 People are baptised in the name of Jesus only. Since Jesus is now included in a way he was not in John’s baptism (19:4), the abbreviated form is used in the beginning to emphasize the distinctive quality of the new baptism.

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:14).

For more verses speaking about the Trinity when one considers the Biblical context see Ephesians 4:4-6, 5:18-20, 1 Cor 12:4-6, and Romans 8:9-11.

Even tough the word “Trinity” does not literally occur in these passages, the concept is quite clearly taught. In Islam too God is called “El Adl,” meaning “the Just,” “El Wajid,” meaning “The Inventor or Maker,” “Edh Dhur,” meaning “the harmful,” etc. in the list of the 99 names of God. However these words are nowhere found in the Quran but Muslims still accept these attributes as belonging to God. See The Muslim Doctrine of God by S.M. Zwemer, American tract Society, 1905, pages 39-45…”

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus || Spoken Word

“Jesus is Lord”?

What does it mean when giving your “life to Christ”? It means giving Him control of “everything” in your life. To depend and trust in Him on all your “life challenges”.

I try to ask God to use me each day. The other day I was having trouble with my lawnmower. I was hoping to mow my lawn and then leave town for the cities for a 3-day weekend. I was disappointed that my lawnmower wouldn’t start yesterday. I then said, it it’s Your will Lord for me to stay here an extra day before going out of town…let it be done! Well, I finally got my lawnmower “fixed” (praise God for His wisdom and creative answer to fix it) today. I would realize the “reason” for it to be fix today throughout the rest of the day. Earlier this morning, I asked God this… “Lord, show me how I can be used by You today”?. Well, God answered it by having me help a “neighbor” wheel her “friend” up several steps on her wheel chair. Then I went to this annual “picnic”. I would sit at this table with a “family” I haven’t seen for awhile. We had a great fellowship time and “catching up” ! My lawnmower being fixed the day after was worth it. This is just “one” of many stories of what it means when you “ask Jesus the Lord of your life” (daily)!

It’s a lifestyle when one “tries” to follow Christ’s teachings through a “daily personal relationship” with Him!
