    Honoring The Price Of Freedom

    in Christianity

    Our Grandfathers, mothers, sons and daughters fought valiantly for our freedom today. And while the barbecue picnics, dinners and fireworks are a great time to spend with our families, friends and loved ones...which were also free to enjoy, we must not forget how much that freedom cost us. Our brave men and women of the armed forces fought through pain, agony, blood, sweat and tears for every citizen of the United States as well as for each other so that we could experience the great joy of freedom on American soil. But there is indeed another kind of freedom we as children of God must not forget.....Our freedom in Christ. And yes it came with a heavy price tag, one that would lead our Lord and savior to the cross being spat upon, cursed at, mocked and shamed for all the world to see. Our sin nailed him there and freed us from the bondage of sin. For some of us we still find ourselves battling and struggling with the same issues of sin. May God help us to not forget what that freedom cost, and may he prick our hearts and minds to remember the great price and ultimate sacrifice of Jesus by living in the true freedom found in Him rather than staying inslaved to sin. This would be good for us to reflect and recall Christ great love for us, which shows how much we honor the price of our spirtual freedom.??

    Chap 5&6 Reading of "Rulers of Evil" F. Tupper Saussy by Jörg Glismann

    in History

    HIS NAME WAS Iñigo de Loyola. He was born in 1491 to a rich family, youngest of eight boys, one of thirteen children. His older brother had sailed to the New World with
    Christopher Columbus. Iñigo served as a page in the court of King Ferdinand and
    Queen Isabella of Spain. He became friends with Ferdinand’s Belgian grandson, Charles Habsburg, whose other grandfather was Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian. (The Holy Roman Emperor was a kind of secular pope who presided over the Christian kingdoms of the western world.) Charles was propelled to great authority before his twenty-first birthday by the deaths of his two grandfathers within a space of two years. From Ferdinand, Charles inherited Spain. From Maximilian, he inherited the Holy Roman Empire. Charles Habsburg was King Charles I of Spain, Emperor Charles V of Rome. He was the most powerful secular figure in Europe. And he was Iñigo’s friend.


    In 1518, Iñigo was part of a legation negotiating for Charles with Spain’s traditional rival, France, at the court of the Duke of Najera in Valladolid. While the summit was in session, Catherina, the Emperor’s sister, was presented to the Najera court. Iñigo fell
    in love with her. He was twenty-seven and she was eleven. (The Emperor was eighteen.) The match, however, was not to be.

    The family is suffering how can we begin to rebuild the family. Let us go through scripture to look at this also I give some of my personal experiences and life suggestions.

    The Sibling Project: Episode 4 - Theresa Valentin

    in Family

    According to SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 24.6 million Americans were illicit drug users in 2013.  Now just for a moment, take that number and try to imagine the number of people that were impacted by that illicit drug use. Think about the families. Think about the number of mothers, fathers, cousins, grandfathers, co-workers and best friends. Think about all the people that were pulled into and torn apart by the viscous cycle of addiction.


    Clearly, the numbers are staggering and the heartache is real and we need to start talking about it. That’s why I’ve created The Sibling Project: Exploring How The Lives of Siblings Are Impacted By Addiction. Over the next several weeks, I will be speaking one on one with a group who’s voice we rarely if ever get to hear, the siblings of addicts and alcoholics. 


    It is my hope, with this series of podcasts, that we can spark a new conversation that focuses on the countless number of siblings living and struggling alongside an addicted loved one. 


    In this fourth episode of The Sibling Project, I'm sitting down with Theresa Valentin. Theresa grew up with two older brothers both of which struggled with addiction. One loved heroin and the other would settle for just about anything he could get his hands on. At 19, Theresa left home to get away from the chaos, a decision she says she's never regretted.
