Josh Duggar, son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from the popular reality show “19 Kids and Counting”, is in the midst of a media firestorm, resulting from several allegations of molestation against at least five younger girls in the early 2000s. These events occurred when the eldest son of the Duggar clan was 14. Reruns of the show were immediately pulled, however TLC is still deciding on the future of the program. When the patriarch finally went to the police to report the incidents, the report was given to a trooper, who subsequently refused to investigate. As a result, the statute of limitations ran out, making any prosecution against Josh impossible. The trooper himself has since been found guilty of charges related to child ography. Instead, the Duggars chose to have Josh take part in manual labor and counseling with an unlicensed Christian counselor. Jim Bob claims in the police report that he believed that the counseling program was affiliated with the police department. Since this story broke, high-profile right wing religious leaders have come to the defense of Josh and his parents, using language such as “regrettable” and “mistakes”, accusing the media of “sensationalizing” the story, making appeals to Jesus, and claiming that these incidents occurred before Josh was a Christian. Should Jim Bob and Michelle be held accountable for knowingly waiting a year before reporting the incidents to authorities? Did Josh do enough to make restitution for his crimes? What role, if any, did Christian privilege play into how this case was handled by the authorities?

News stories of pedophilia create near daily outrage. Whether high profile offenders like Josh Duggar or the quiet guy next door the stories shock and sicken. Conversations from the water cooler to the bars range from revulsion to 'here's what I'd do,' which infers vigilatism.

Four games of the Western Conference Finals are in the books, and the Warriors lead the Rockets by a 3-1 margin. That overall mark may not seem surprising, but the route the series has taken to get there has been a bit bizarre.
For two games, the teams appeared almost evenly matched, with Stephen Curry and James Harden — the league’s top two finishers in MVP voting — trading blow for blow in two games that went down to the wire in Oakland.
Then in Game 3, the Warriors absolutely blew the doors off of Houston, grabbing a commanding 3-0 series lead by virtue of a 35-point beatdown in Toyota Center.
But the Game 4 that many predicted would be Golden State’s title coronation for the Western Conference? Instead, the Rockets climbed off the mat in stunning fashion, racing out to a record-setting 45-point first quarter and cruising to a 128-115 victory to extend the series. The Rockets, now 4-0 against elimination in these playoffs, became just the second team in NBA history to win four straight elimination games by double digits in the same postseason.
Ben DuBose of Sheridan Hoops is joined by Josh Reese of CBS Radio in Houston to break it all down.

Paul this man who was once call Saul who hated the church after being brought into the light of Christ tells us in chapter 12 of the spiritual gifts God placed in the church; in chapter 14, he lectures the class on prophecy and its superiority of the two. And, then he makes chapter 13 the ‘’oreo’’ in the cookie: the greatest of these is love.
Chapter 13, v. 1-3 In paragraph one of three, Paul’s arrangement of the spiritual gifts in a greater/lesser grouping are to highlight the importance of love to tongues & prophecy; knowledge or faith nor the burning of your body are greater than love.
Paul, the apostle, in v.4-7, personifies and enumerates what love is and what love aint; what love does and what love does not do.
V, 8-13 are The preacher and teacher waits until v. 8, his last paragraph, to announces the text of his message, ‘’love never fail’’...
V.13 Our Dear brother Paul in the final verse of the love chapter takes love and do the math with faith and hope...
