The 10 Best High School Basketball Players of All Time

“..8. Kobe Bryant, Lower Merion, Philadelphia, Pennslyvania
3 OF 10
Despite his accomplishments as a high school junior and senior, 12 NBA teams weren’t sold on his long-term outlook. And the one that drafted him decided to flip him for Vlade Divac.

Pennsylvania’s Player of the Year in 1995, Bryant went for 31 points, 10.4 boards and 5.2 assists a game as a junior. And just when he hit NBA radars, Bryant upped himself and his draft stock as a high school senior.

From USA Today to Parade Magazine, Bryant swept up every National Player of the Year Award that was out there. He had led Lower Merion to its first AAAA state title in 53 years, finishing his last three seasons with a 73-13 record.

With 2,883 career points, Bryant had outscored Wilt Chamberlain to set the all-time mark in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

After being selected as a lottery pick in 1996, Bryant helped spark an era that saw a number of high schoolers declare early, and influence a few NBA teams to bite. ..”

Kobe Bryant: Most Tragic Loss In Sports History

Kobe Bryant Dead – Did He Know the Lord?

‘It’s in His Hands Now’: What Led Kobe Bryant to Return to His Faith .cbn.com
“…Bryant had difficulties in his personal life, facing a sexual assault charge that was later dismissed in a settlement with the accuser.

During a 2015 interview with GQ, he said that confronting those challenges led him to consider certain life choices he was making and return to his faith for guidance.

“The one thing that really helped me during that process – I’m Catholic, I grew up Catholic, my kids are Catholic – was talking to a priest. It was actually kind of funny: He looks at me and says, ‘Did you do it?’ And I say, ‘Of course not.’ Then he asks, ‘Do you have a good lawyer?’ Uh, yeah, he’s phenomenal. So then he just said, ‘Let it go. Move on. God’s not going to give you anything you can’t handle, and it’s in His hands now. This is something you can’t control. So let it go.’ And that was the turning point,” Bryant told GQ.

Hundreds arrested for deliberately starting catastrophic Australian bushfires

“…CANBERRA, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) — Hundreds of Australians have been arrested for allegedly deliberately lighting Australian bushfires in only a matter of months.

Australia is currently enduring one of the worst bushfire crises in the nation’s history, with at least 25 people having been killed since September.

The Australian reported on Tuesday that 183 people have been arrested for lighting bushfires in New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

In NSW alone 183 people have been charged or cautioned for bushfire-related offences since November, with 24 arrested for deliberately starting bushfires. While in Victoria 43 were charged in 2019…

In Queensland, where the fires were worst in November, 101 people have been arrested for deliberately starting fires, almost 70 percent of whom were juveniles.

According to James Ogloff, the director of the Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne University, approximately 50 percent of Australia’s bushfires are started by arsonists.

I lost my home to bushfire. Thoughts and prayers are not enough
The Conversation By Janet Stanley
Updated 12 Nov 2019, 7:00am abc.net.au
“..I lost my home in Victoria’s 1983 Macedon bushfires. I know sympathy and financial assistance for those in the midst of the crisis is important. However, when political leaders such as Prime Minister Scott Morrison offer their “thoughts and prayers”, it’s hard to read this as anything but disingenuous.

Scientists and meteorologists have for years warned of more frequent and extreme bushfires as climate change worsens. Their messages have been met by policy inertia. Nationals leader Michael McCormack on Monday went so far as to dismiss those who link bushfires to global warming as “raving inner-city lunatics”…

The World Meteorological Organisation said in February that the four years to 2018 were the hottest on record, in a clear sign of climate change “associated with record atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases”.

Bushfires are not directly attributable to climate change. However, the fast-warming climate is making bushfires more frequent and intense…

In Australia, weekly bushfire frequencies increased by 40 per cent in the five years to 2016, particularly during summer months, suggesting a serious climatic shift.

The northern hemisphere is also suffering. Research released earlier this year found that California’s annual wildfire extent had increased fivefold since the 1970s. This was very likely driven by drying forest fuels under human‐induced warming.

The mountain of irrefutable evidence linking global warming to bushfires makes the Federal Government’s failure to act — or even talk about the problem — extremely hard to explain. Of course, worsening bushfires are not the only signal that climate change has arrived…

Praying

A call to prayer for those affected by bushfires
ETERNITY NEWS STAFF WRITERS | NOVEMBER 12TH, 2019 09:27 AM | Comment Icon eternitynews.com.au
“…Simon Hansford, moderator of the Uniting Church in NSW and ACT shared this prayer:

God of life and death,
our prayers today are where our hearts and minds
have been during these last days
and where they have been drawn so early in this season;
with those communities and individuals
whose lives have been damaged
in differing ways by the bushfires…

Pray for Australia || Pray for Rain

Fight Fires With Prayer blog.canberradeclaration.org.au
“..One miracle that has gained national attention took place in eastern Victoria. On New Year’s Eve, 4,000 people were evacuated from the township of Mallacoota to the beach and lakeside. David, a local bed-and-breakfast owner, told this story to ABC radio:

“I was praying. I was an atheist. I was praying to God, praying to Jesus, turn the wind. You wouldn’t believe it—but I’m going to tell you the honest-to-God truth. It pushed this thing back against itself.

“Literally we felt the wind come from off the beach, it shouldn’t have, but it did, but it went back at it. I don’t care if anyone else doesn’t recognise it. It was unbelievable… I believe [it was] God’s intervention, absolutely, through prayer…”..”

Rain brings relief to scorched parts of Australia

“Milder temperatures on Sunday brought some relief to areas of Australia affected by wildfires. But that’s only temporary, with the Prime Minister Scott Morrison warning that there was still “months to go” until the end of bushfire season. The number of those killed by wild-fires increased to 24, in the town of Batlow a 47-year old man died while defending the home of a friend..”

“..“Breakthrough, which is based on Joyce Smith’s 2017 book “The Impossible: The Miraculous Story of a Mother’s Faith and Her Child’s Resurrection” (co-written with the Christian author and media personality Ginger Kolbaba), presents itself as the true story of a modern miracle. But it’s also a portrait of what religious faith looks like when there’s no pesky doubt to get in the way.

Dead for Over an Hour, Son Comes Back to Life cbn.com
“..“He’s been dead for 45 minutes.” These words met Joyce as she saw her son. On Monday, January 19, 2015, 14-year-old John Smith had spent the night with two friends,- Josh Rieger & Josh Sander – after winning a close basketball game the night before. John scored the winning shot. Joyce had spoken to John and was prepared to go pick him up when she got a chilling phone call minutes later from friend Cindy saying, “There’s been an accident.” John had fallen through the ice on Lake Saint Louise. First responders had pulled him out but “he didn’t have a heartbeat.” Stunned, after calling husband Brian & her sister, Joyce raced to the hospital praying all the way. Joyce burst into the ER as doctors feverishly worked to bring life back to John’s lifeless body. Sensing little hope, Dr. Stutterer finally told her, “You can go up and talk to your son.” “In that moment I knew I had to get desperate with my Lord. I had to get a hold of God and get a hold of him fast,” she says. Remembering a Beth Moore Bible study, she knew that the Holy Spirit had raised Christ Jesus from the dead. That same power was available to us. “All of a sudden, everyone and everything in that room faded away and it was just me and John and God. With a voice I thought was quiet, but that actually bellowed through the room, down the hallway, …. I declared, ‘I believe in a God who can do miracles! Holy Spirit, I need you right now to come and breathe life back into my son!” She closed her eyes and wept, and at that instant, she heard the sound of a miracle. John’s heart monitor sprang back to life. John’s recovery was slow but sure. Doctors expected and wanted to prepare the family that massive brain damage would affect him, but every test showed remarkable healing. His recovery defied every medical & scientific expectation, and 16 days later he walked out of the hospital under his own power, completely healed.

POWER OF PRAYER
Joyce knows that prayer really does work. As John lay in the hospital she marveled at how the Lord had brought John into her and Brian’s life unexpectedly when most parents were entering the empty nest stage. Looking back she remembered that at 17 years old she fell in love with a man six years older and a divorced father of two. Headstrong, she didn’t listen to her parents and became pregnant after high-school graduation. She was happy until Charlie told her to get rid of it. She hid her pregnancy, wearing baggy clothes, etc, and turned down a music scholarship for college thinking she would get married. Charlie never changed so she agreed to give the baby up for adoption. She never told her parents. He took her to a hospital where the doctor induced labor. “I gave birth to a baby boy with a round, chubby face, huge blue eyes, and a light covering of blond hair on his head,” she says. She adored him. On the third day she awoke and her baby boy was gone, taken away. “I begged for death to take me, as I sobbed into my pillow,” Joyce says. It was four days later her stunned parents found out she had given birth and had not told them. She did stay with Charlie and a subsequent pregnancy lead them to marry. During the hard years of this marriage Joyce turned to God again in her life. He answered her prayer and she didn’t miscarry her son Tom. She went back to church but eventually divorced Charlie.

A single mom with two boys, she met Brian who loved her boys and they married. Brian, a videographer, had a heart for missions and went on several trips . His heart for the children lead them to seek to adopt a child. In February 2000 they adopted a little five-and-a-half-month old baby boy from Guatemala they named John when she was 49 & Brian 46 years old! So much joy! Strangely Joyce never told Brian about giving up her first son for adoption. Never sure how he would take it. But one day when John was three years old, as she did devotions God spoke to her heart – I want you to find your son. She went to the computer. Miraculously, He led her step-by-step and within 10 days she had found and spoke with her son. Less than two weeks later she says, “I met my sweet son Joe for the second time in my life. And he was everything I hoped and prayed he would be.” Brian had proved to be so welcoming in hearing of her oldest son.

TOTAL RESTORATION
Joyce continues to marvel at the goodness and grace of God. He totally restored her oldest son and family to her. John is doing remarkably well, is totally restored, a good student with a 3.5 gpa and is very articulate. If we have just a little bit of faith, He will do wonders. She says it could be that God healed John over two weeks so that man would exhaust all his efforts. God restores hope. People want to see a God who cares and is above all things. She thanks God for the role of adoption in her life, restoring Joe to her and bringing them John. He cares for the hopeless and the lost, and adopts us into His family. Joyce just wants people to know that God does the impossible, she says. Their story is slated to be made into a movie by Devon Franklin and 20th Century Fox.

Stephen Curry to Executive Produce Faith-Based Drama ‘Breakthrough’ (Exclusive) (Exclusive)

The move, which was finalized several months ago, is one of the first for Curry’s burgeoning media career and one of the first to be revealed since the Golden State Warrior point guard officially launched his banner, Unanimous Media, earlier this year.

“..NBA superstar Stephen Curry has quietly come aboard Breakthrough, a faith-based drama from Fox 2000, as an executive producer, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The move, which was finalized several months ago, is one of the first for Curry’s burgeoning media career and one of the first to be revealed since the Golden State Warriors point guard officially launched his banner, Unanimous Media, earlier this year.

Unanimous, which has an overall film and TV deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, is developing many of its own projects, but Curry couldn’t pass up getting involved with Breakthrough since it dovetailed with his own focus on faith and family-friendly material.

Based on a book by Joyce Smith titled The Impossible, Breakthrough tells the true story of how Joyce’s son, John Smith, fell through the ice and drowned, and was declared legally dead. A hour later, however, the basketball-loving 14-year-old was miraculously revived through the power of prayer…”

“Breakthrough” tells the true story of one of the most miraculous recoveries ever. John Smith was just 14 years old when he fell through an icy Missouri lake in 2015. After being rescued from the frigid waters, John was rushed to a local hospital, where, with no pulse for nearly 45 minutes, he was declared dead. But then something remarkable happened: He woke up. The incredible tale is being retold, Hollywood-style, in “Breakthrough,” starring Chrissy Metz and Josh Lucas.

The Mambabarang: The Black Magic of the Philippine Islands (Occult History Explained)

Witchcraft in the Philippines: as millennials fall under the spell, businesses are catching on Alixandra Vila

Published: 7:45am, 30 Jan, 2019 scmp.com
The rise of liberal millennials in the Philippines has brought witchcraft and the mystical forces of nature from the fringes into the mainstream
Businesses are joining in, with themed restaurants, occult bars, and beers celebrating the country’s mythological creatures
‘..Numerous records indicate that in pre-colonial Philippines, Filipinos worshipped Bathala, the Tagalog supreme deity who created the universe. They believed in engkantos, the spirits of ancestors or guardians of nature who are said to have the ability to appear in human form. Communities were dominated by babaylans (shamans) and mananambals (witches) that practise sacred rituals and magic.
..

“I go to different parts of the country to seek ingredients,” Demetrio says. “I go to the mountains, the jungle, talk to local people, including witch doctors who are known to have knowledge about rare ingredients found only in our land. It is through them that I learned to respect all that nature provides. I was inspired by them to transform these ingredients into something that would be enjoyed by whoever comes here.”

LMFAO. Just to clarify, that guy was an albularyo (from spanish herbolario, “herbalist”). They’re not really the ones who gave Siquijor its reputation. Honestly most of it is just sleight of hand. Don’t feel bad at laughing.

The original “witches” of Siquijor were actually shamans, called babaylan, who escaped Spanish prosecution. And they were almost always women or homosexual men. As shamans, they were the religious leaders of the villages. They didn’t need theatrics and magic tricks. Their main job was interceding. Talking to the spirit world for advice or healing or cursing enemies. Hence why it’s mostly women and gay men because they were believed to have female spirits who had a stronger connection to the spirit world (giving birth and all that).

This also meant that when the Spanish arrived and introduced Christianity they were the first to go. They were reduced to being “healers” (usually doing things like therapeutic massage or hilot, setting bones, or midwifery), while Catholic priests took over their religious roles. A few babaylan attempted to lead revolts against the Spanish because of this, but all of them failed. As a result, almost none of the traditions survived. Modern albularyo are a far cry from the babaylan.

Michelle Warren started attending a spiritualist church after the loss of her grandmother. This led her into spiritual practices and witchcraft. She had an encounter with the devil and she realised that she had to change her ways. Michelle now pastors a new church in South Wales and has an overseas ministry in Kenya. Michelle covers a teaching on Halloween as well as providing a real warning about getting involved in detestable practices. You need to encourage all your family and friends to watch this.

Overcomer: Movie Review Chris Carpenter – Director of Internet Programming cbn.com
“..Overcomer is a movie that dares you to dig deeper into who you really are. Filled with vital reminders of our self-worth through Christ (see Ephesians 1 and 2), the Kendrick Brothers sixth release presents a terrific challenge of determining what truly defines us. This movie is certainly worth the price of admission. See it and take your friends.

Movie Reflection: “Lion King”

Just finished watching the Disney’s “new version” of “Lion King” late last night. We were just a few in the movie theater as it was a late night showing (9pm) 3D special . I was hoping to watch it back in Morris, but the weather was too nice out and had plans every evening last week.

The Lion King Official Trailer – YouTube

I knew the plot of the movie already, but I was anticipating on how they did this “remake” in more “real life” animation version. I was very pleased how they made, it, but somehow got a “revelation” watching it “again”.

Here are just some that I personally got. When Simba was coaked by his uncle into “leaving” after he “supposedly” caused his father’s death. As “kids”, we all get curious..

He went to this “unfamiliar” place where he met Timon & Pumbaa. They tried to “mess up” with Simba’s mind about his true identity as a “lion” , so he won’t become their enemy in the “animal kingdom” or “chain of predators”.

Predator Hierarchy | Southern African Safaris | Classic Africa .classicafrica.com
“..As a rule, lions rule supreme, both by virtue of their sheer physical strength, and because of the co-ordinated power of the lion pride. Through cooperative hunting efforts, lions are essentially the only predators capable of taking prey up to the size of Cape buffalo, hippos, giraffe, and even sub-adult elephants. It is a myth that only females can hunt – male lions are in fact very successful hunters, but they avoid it as far as possible as they must conserve energy to defend their territories. Typically, females do most hunting but are displaced from the kill by pride males; once the males are satiated, the females will feed, and cubs eat last.

Next in line are Spotted hyenas. Still largely misunderstood, hyenas are not just scavengers but very successful hunters in their own right. Although they are also highly social, hyenas differ from lions in several respects. Firstly, they are dogs, and the hyena clan is dominated by females, who are physically larger and more aggressive than the males. Usually, hyena clans are not capable of driving a pride of lions from a kill, provided a mature male lion is present; if, however, no pride male is present and hyenas outnumber lionesses and sub-adults by a ratio of four to one, hyenas will carry the day..”

“…you see He (your father) lives in you…”

“Who are you?” – asked by Rafiki to Simba was a great question about “who do you identify with?” . During this scene, I started reflecting on who I identify with. I used to struggle with this generally. I wasn’t sure who I am . My name is Sal, but I struggled with my “racial cultural identification”. I grew up in a majority “white Caucasian” school and was conflicted internally with my “racial identification” (see blog above or personal testimony).

Deep Thought: What “if” Eve didn’t eat the “forbidden fruit”?

Why Did God Create The Tree of Good and Evil if He Knew Adam and Eve Would Eat From it?

Why did God prevent Adam from eating from the Tree of Life after he had sinned? creation.com
“..This raises an interesting question. Why would God prevent Adam from eating from the Tree of Life after he had sinned? The Bible tells us that the last enemy to be destroyed is death (1 Corinthians 15:26). But if death is an enemy, wouldn’t it have been a good thing for Adam to live forever by eating from the Tree of Life?..

When Adam sinned, mankind became estranged from God and physical death entered the world. In this way, through one man, physical death entered the world (cf. Romans 5:12, 17), and through Adam, death now came to all men. If Adam had eaten from the Tree of Life after he sinned, he would have lived forever, but he would have lived in a state of eternal estrangement from God…

While death is tragic and an enemy to God’s perfect creation, this same curse of death, is also what allowed Christ to become incarnate as a man and to actually die on the cross as a ransom for His people. If Adam had eaten from the Tree of Life after he had sinned, all mankind would have lived forever, estranged from God; and Christ, our Kinsman-Redeemer, would not have been able to die on the cross in redemption. In other words, if God did not subject sinful humanity with a curse of death, sinful man would not have any chance of being reconciled back to God. If God did not prevent Adam from eating from the Tree of Life after he had sinned, a future redemption through the physical death of one of Adam’s descendants (Jesus Christ) would not have been possible…

What would have Happened if Adam & Eve had not Fallen ? – YouTube

SecondComingOfChrist
Published on Aug 26, 2011
Had Adam and Eve reached perfection they would have borne good children and founded a sinless family and society with God’s blessings. They would then have founded the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and become the Original True Parents of mankind. Humanity would have realized the Ideal of creation on earth.
Then when we shed our physical bodies and pass into the spirit world , we would have formed the Kingdom of God in Heaven.

Why didn’t Adam and Eve immediately die for their sin (Genesis 3)? gotquestions.org
“..Interpreters typically answer this question in one of two ways. First, many note that Adam and Eve did die, though not immediately. The Hebrew phrase translated “in the day” in Genesis 2:17 is sometimes used to mean “for certain” (e.g., Exodus 10:28; 1 Kings 2:37, 42). So, Adam and Eve “certainly” died; it’s just that their death took place much later (Genesis 5:5). This view is also supported by Genesis 3:22, in which God determines to bar man from the tree of life to prevent him from living forever. Adam and Eve lost eternal life, were expelled from the Garden of Eden, and eventually experienced physical death.
