    Traditional vs. Self vs. Hybrid Publishing Part 1

    in Writing

It is not an easy decision and can shape your career as a writer. This debate, which has raged and simmered for years has been fanned into an inferno of dueling blogs around the question: Has the publishing world now been divided into a “caste system.” Follow along as the Write Pack feels their way through this maze.

    Sinful Blacks, Hybrid Whites, Holy Jews & Evil Arabs

    in Religion

    The Jews are a Chosen Race, a holy people superior to Blacks and Arabs. God (Greys) wants the Jews to own the land. The body of a Jewish person is of a totally different quality from the body of members of all other nations of the world. Bodies of the Gentiles are in vain. An even greater difference is in regard to the soul...A non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness. The Jews are determined to keep their race holy. Since the Jews souls are on a far higher plane than the animalistic, "satanic souls" of Gentiles, it is common for Jewish authorities to brand all Arabs inferior.

    What Does God Have to Say About That? 4/18/2015

    in Christianity

    God loves you. He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to this world, to die a horrible death on the cross so that you and I might be saved. Yet, we continue to turn our backs on Christ, and then complain about the world. What do the two have in common? If every person confessed their sins and accepted Jesus as their Savior, the world would change into the world we want it to be. Imagine - no more war, no more crime, no more poverty, no more living paycheck to paycheck, no more divorce, no more drug/alcohol addiction, no more domestic violence, no more depression, suicide, murder, or any of the endless events that plague the world today. As John Lennon said, "Imagine all the world...." And it could be that way but it requires putting away the desire to do things our own way, which clearly is not working and let God have His way. Imagine... Email Marie at marieontheradio@gmail.com

Along the way their powers are tested by the galaxy's most elite warriors in their attempt to conquer Simonia. Victories are won and lives are lost but Simonia will live on.
