Are there any biblical grounds for divorce, and if so, what are they?

A lot of the debate over divorce has to do with the way we interpret and handle Jesus’ teaching on the subject. In Matthew’s Gospel, for example, the Pharisees come to Jesus for a decision and they are trying to trick him into speaking against the law of Moses. They ask, “Is it lawful to … Continue reading Are there any biblical grounds for divorce, and if so, what are they?

Dear Kathy Griffin…

BeautyBeyondBones

Being a millennial New Yorker and actor, I’d like to think I’ve got pretty thick skin.

Getting rejected is par for the course in the entertainment industry. The city doesn’t do you any favors — just try battling the check out lines at Whole Foods at 3pm on a Sunday.  Heck, even the squirrels seems to have a certain undeniable hutzpah on these streets.

Really, nothing quite comes as a shock to me anymore, for better or for worse.

However.

Earlier this week, opening up my Buzzfeed app to find Kathy Griffin’s infamous photo of her, carrying the bloodied head of a decapitated President Donald Trump…I literally stopped in my tracks.

Just. No.

And I have a few words.

This is not okay. I don’t care how much you hate the President or his policies, that went. too far.

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is one of –…

Going piano.

cancer killing recipe

I was rushing all my life.
But now the pain in my joints is forcing me to slow down.
And I like it.
Not a pain but slowing down. 🙂

Going slow I’m avoiding tripping, falling down and breaking my old aching bones.
And I have time to think where I’m going, why I’m going there and what I will do when I get there. 🙂

Sure, I can hurry up if there is emergency.
Than I will forget the pain and I will do whatever have to be done under the circumstances.

This old Italian Proverb explains why going slow is better:

Chi va piano
Va sano
Va lontano

Means: He who go slowly
Goes healthy
And goes far

So slow down if you want to go sano and go lontano. 🙂

And someone Anonymous said:
Slow down happiness is trying to catch you.

Thank you for visiting.

At the heart of Youth

Song of Virginity

“A woman’s heart should be so hidden in God that a man has to seek Him
– just to find her.”

– Max Lucado

I love this quote! Because nothing could be more true – and yet, not much is further from the truth when asking  the youth of today.

According to an article on Christianitytoday.com, the top ten fears of the youth today has the #10 fear as “I will never have a happy marriage”… ???…
That’s not the Lord speaking, but the devil speaking into the hearts of our youth today.

Girls & Boys: You are valuable! You deserve love! You are worth dying for!

You don’t believe me?
Then look at the compassion in God’s eyes:
He hung on the cross – so you wouldn’t have to.

imagesYou are infinitely loved by a God Who will never abandon His own!

With God nothing is impossible. Marriage? With Jesus in the…

Yes..! God wants this..

purposeful life

Hello all , I thank you for looking in to my blog.

Please read this and I would really love to see your comments.

Let’s look at and notice this world again for a while…..We could only discover lustful works, hatred, jealousy and all that are against righteousness.

This is the most sinful place where we are living at present, the

World is filled with all kinds of lustful works that it’s very difficult

For anybody to stay pure without God’s help, and God wants Hispeople to be Holy.

We may be regular Church goers , we may have a very kind and

Merciful heart, we may be one of the very active members of the Church

and attend all the youth conference and gospel conference without

fail, that’s great ! God appreciates that and also God wants us to be of such kind.

But before that …

True Integrity

Jonathan Camac

yolo

Someone may have driven over our moral compass. If it isn’t broken – it is lost.

What is true integrity? How relevant is it in today’s society? What does it look like?

All important questions. Integrity is something I believe is so important, especially being a Christian, as Jesus had a lot to say and do about it. But more about him later.

  1. “The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles”
  2. “The state of being whole and un-divided”

In the world today, as a general rule, I believe integrity is somewhat lost. This isn’t different to many other societies before us, however, is still an issue in my opinion. Australia has had something like four prime ministers in the last five years (don’t quote me on that). Failure to fulfil definite promises, although not a new concept, is something we expect in the leaders of our countries. Let…

Beliefs – Why do people differ so much?

Im ashamed to die until i have won some victory for humanity.(Horace Mann)

beliefsWe seem to be surrounded by so much tension and conflict in the world today. With all the prejudice, discrimination and violence associated with strongly held beliefs, it would be nice to work out why people disagree so much. So what causes us to each believe certain things and be sniffy about opposing ideas?

I imagine we pickup ideas from all around us. Beliefs that have seeped through from current and past thinking in politics, philosophy, religion and so on. I’m sure I am influenced by my family upbringing, the traditions of my culture, the mass media and books I watch and read, what my teachers told me, and what newspapers I choose to read.

In a multicultural society where a pluralistic mentality has influenced our individual consciousness, it is quite difficult if not impossible to disentangle the effects of all these factors.
