    Sexual Assault Awareness Month

    in Entertainment

    Sexual violence encompasses a variety of criminal acts, ranging from sexual threats to unwanted contact to rape. These crimes are extremely underreported because of the stigma associated with sexual assault—and are therefore difficult to count in official statistics. Forcible rapes known to law enforcement have declined sharply since 1979, when they were at an all-time high. Sexual assault can happen to anyone of any age, gender, race, and socioeconomic background. It can happen at any time or place. Assailants may be strangers, acquaintances, friends, or family members. Perpetrators may use violence, threats, coercion, manipulation, or other forms of pressure or deception to commit sexual assault. 


    Join us as we use this platform to educate and bring awareness to you about sexual violence.

    National Crime Victim's Rights Week & Sexual Assault Awareness

    in Radio

    This week U.S. observes National Crime Victims’ Rights week—promoting victims’ rights and honoring crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. Millions of Americans each year are victimized by crime—acts of terrorism, violent crime, human trafficking, hate crimes, financial fraud, child abuse, cyber crime, kidnapping, bank robbery...the list goes on. And the FBI’s Office for Victim Assistance (OVA) is responsible for ensuring that victims of crimes investigated by the Bureau are afforded the opportunity to receive the services and notifications they are entitled to and the assistance they need to cope. http://www.fbi.gov/news/news_blog/2015-national-crime-victims-rights-week


    Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM) campaign


    The OVA manages the day-to-day operational aspects of our victim assistance program in each of our 56 field offices, where our victim specialists work with those who have suffered physical, emotional, and/or financial harm as a result of a federal crime. In addition, OVA is also responsible for providing training and information that equips FBI agents and other Bureau personnel to work effectively with victims


    Sexual violence including child sexual abuse crosses all ages, genders, races, ethnicities, and economic backgrounds. According to the Child Maltreatment 2013 report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Children's Bureau,  60,956 cases of child sexual abuse were reported in the US 2013—9.0 percent of the total number of reported maltreatment cases that year.

    Kingdom Awareness "Conscious Disobedience"

    in Spirituality

    Conscious Disobedience


    1Jo 5:6, “This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.


    The bible instructs us to seek the truth, yet when we find the truth few believe that it is in fact truth—even though they can read it for themselves.  I have often wondered why so few words can be so easily misunderstood and those who form no opinion about God’s word are persecuted when they find it.  Well it is because of the nature of truth.  What do I mean, “The nature of Truth”, you ask?   First… the nature of truth has no opinion.  Secondly…the nature of truth is not subject to interpretation, and thirdly… the nature of truth is not tolerant.  This means that truth is absolute.  Truth has limits and is endless.  The limit is that there is a period, but lasts forever—Just like Christ.  Truth goes against the nature of reality and thought, because both are subjective.  As kingdom citizens we are not.  


    Relative and natural thought has and will only seek out self-preservation, while truth operates regardless of how things look or how we think or feel.  Truth—being the only absolute— will reject any argument that has opinion or poses questions to anything that gives no true meaning of defining right or wrong or a beginning and an end that last forever.  Emotional experiences are subject to the way we feel, thus can be void of truth.  Void because if God’s will is dependent on our feelings, that would make him subject to us and not us to him.  Please join us to understand what the Church (You) look like without an opinion and what one looks like with one.  Call (310)982-4267 at 6:30pm EST.
