    Collateral Consequences for Court Involved Youth

    in Legal

    Children involved in juvenile court face collateral consequences from their delinquency adjudications which can prevent barriers to their future success and can cause harm to their well-being. Some of these stem from system exposure and others extend beyond the time spent under court supervision but are related to their prior court involvement and adjudication. For example, after successfully completing their dispositions, many youth face significant hardships enrolling back in school, finding employment, or accessing ongoing treatment or health care. This episode of Spotlight on Youth focuses on the intersection of collateral consequences for youth who are court involved. Guests join this episode to discuss what is being done on both policy and practice levels to reduce and eliminate the problem. Guests

    Tithing: CONSEQUENCES or Why Is This So Important?

    in Christianity

    CONSEQUENCES (Why Is This So Important?)


    Matter of Control


    How much, when and to whom we give of our resources, our time and our money, is often one of the ways we gain or maintain control. We try to control God, thinking that if we give we can get God to take care of us. We control others, thinking that if we give to a church, ministry or person, we should have some say in how the money is spent, or have a say in how they live their lives.


    Tithing also involves another area of control in the body; that of leadership over laity.


    Another way finances are used to control is the whole issue of tax-exempt status.


    Believers Not Learning How to Hear the Lord


    Believers are not being taught how to give, or to hear from the Lord for themselves! There is a stronghold of poverty in the church because of the mix of grace and law, that you are free to give as long as you have already fulfilled the law of tithing. But we study to show ourselves approved, not to get ourselves approved.


    Do we give to get, or do we give because we have already received?


    Social Infrastructure Based on Money


    In Old Testament times, the tithes and offerings paid for government services, self-defense, disaster relief, roads, parties (festivals), and every need of society. Today, we pay taxes for these necessities.


    Not Giving God's Way is Contrary to Our New Nature


    At least ask the Lord what He wants done. If you don't seem to get an answer, do what you think is best and go on to something else. He doesn't want this to become a distraction, either.

  • Tithing: Consequences & Conclusions

    in Christianity

    Believers Not Learning How to Hear the Lord


    There is a stronghold of poverty in the church because of the mix of grace and law, that you are free to give as long as you have already fulfilled the law of tithing.


    Social Infrastructure Based on Money


    On a practical note, in Old Testament times, the tithes and offerings paid for government services, self-defense, disaster relief, roads, parties (festivals), and every need of society. Today, we pay taxes for these necessities.


    Not Giving God's Way is Contrary to Our New Nature


    There are at least four reasons the decision to tithe or not is a big issue. First, a lot of time, effort and manipulation is being used to get God's people to donate money, regardless of the need. Secondly, financially supporting something God isn't blessing can actually delay God's discipline in another's life, work or ministry. Third, not asking God what to do is ignoring His sovereignty in our lives. Fourth, deciding on our own is disobedience to the truth, and encouraging to the flesh.


    CONCLUSIONS


    Bereans (Acts 17:10-11)


    The Bereans were commended because they looked it up (in the Torah) for themselves, overcame the fear of man and their own traditions, and when they recognized the truth, they were willing to let go of their old ideas and act on what they were convinced of.


    Free to Give Only if Free Not to Give!


    We can't be free to give from the heart if it's a commandment and we must do it. It was for freedom we were set free.


    Are You Free to Give?


    Here's a little test: If you are currently tithing, or making regular donations to a ministry, group or person, ask the Lord each time if that is the amount He wants you to give. Then give Him an opportunity to speak.

    Actions And Consequences Are "One" Therefore All Actions Are Consequential

    in Spirituality

    Amos spoke with daring and heart felt fervor to the people of Yahweh who would  surrender the delusion of actions without consequences when faced with an enemy without pity.  Spiritual rebellion is the result of a culpable failure to hear the Word of God with a view to obeying its imperative mandates.  There are words in the Hebrew that specifically teach the inherent nature of actions and consequences.  This is an organic unity or a single fabric.  This truth is intrinsic to the nature of the cosmos.  This reality is intrinsic to the  vibrational harmonics of the universe created by Yahweh.

    "GET A BANK LOAN WITHOUT COLLATERAL"!

    in Women

    Professor Muhammad Yunus never wanted to be a banker and he certainly never imagined winning the Nobel Peace Prize. Yet his quest to help the working poor invest in themselves led to both. Known as the father of microcredit, Yunus spent years developing the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, and in 1983 it became a fully licensed bank with a twist-it was owned by its borrowers-mainly poor women, and its mission was to eradicate poverty, not make a profit. Yunus is famous for saying that in developing Grameen he deliberately did the opposite of what a conventional bank would do. Today, the success of Grameen Bank has changed the lives of 7.5 million Bangladeshi borrowers and their families.


    Now brining his bank to America, Grameen America opened for business in a nondescript office building in Jackson Heights, Queens in late 2007.


    This is a non-collateral lending bank, and Gayle Ferarro will be in the studio to tell us all about Grameen Bank and how it works.   Tune in this Friday, and learn all about Grameen Bank.


     


    In the studio with me will be my Co-Host Sybil Marie Presley, and my radio personalities Sharon Coleman, Larone Woodard, and Rev. Douglas Martin.

    EXCLUSIVE chat with an Assassin - Kingpin - Bodyguard - Sniper - Drug Dealer

    in Music

    The guest for this show goes by the name FLY from Grand Rapids, MI.  He is a reitred PAID assassin, drug dealer, contract killer, kingpin, and sniper.  The US loved the Godfather Movie where this profession was sometimes glorified.  Contract killing is a form of murder in which one party hires another party to kill a target individual or group of people. It involves an agreement between two or more parties in which one party agrees to kill the target in exchange for some form of payment, monetary or otherwise. Either party may be a person, group, or an organization.


    Throughout history, contract killing has been associated with organized crime and with vendettas. Contract killing provides the hiring party with the advantage of not having to be directly involved in the killing. This makes it more difficult to connect said party with the murder and decreases the likelihood of establishing guilt for the committed murder, because the hiring party did not commit the murder; they only enabled it to happen. It is also often used by parties who do not have the ability to carry the killing themselves, such as a spouse contracting the murder of their partner.


    In the United States, a contract to kill a person is void, meaning that it is not legally enforceable. Any contract to commit an indictable offense is not enforceable. Thus, if a hitman takes the money but then fails or refuses to perform, the customer cannot sue for specific performance or for damages for breach of contract. Conversely, if the hitman performs the killing as promised but the customer refuses to pay, the hitman cannot sue the customer for monetary damages.
