Welcome everyone! Today we are reading I Corinthians!
Paul's letter starts with some basic introductions. Hey! Paul here. What up, Romans? As it turns out, Paul's never been to Rome, but he wants to go. Really, really badly. He's sending this letter ahead of him as a way of introducing himself… and of sharing lots (and we mean lots) of theological goodies. Paul's big concern is Jesus. He died so we could live the good life with God. All we have to do is believe in him and all our dreams will come true. It's only been twenty years since Jesus died, and not everyone is faithing it up quite yet. Come on, guys. Get with the program. Paul is especially worried about the Jewish people. See, Paul's a Jew himself, and he believes that Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and the continuation of all Jewish life and thought. But not every single Jew accepts this. Paul spends this entire letter struggling with the idea that non-believing Jews can't possibly be on God's good side. But he also can't quite shake the feeling that since they're God's chosen peeps, the Big Guy is gonna do something for them. Paul sure has his fingers crossed. There is a silver lining to all this non-believing, though. Because the Jewish people aren't all cool with Jesus, God has moved onto recruiting the Gentiles. Paul's kind of like the apostle to the Gentiles, so he's pretty psyched about this. The Gentile-Christians in Rome can be a little, well, full of themselves sometimes. They don't like the Jewish-Christians because they think that God rejected the Jews and Jewish law. No way! Paul tells them. He wants every Christian, regardless of their background, living in peace and harmony. Come on, guys. Can't we all just get along? And, as always, he gives full credit for every good thing to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Peace. Paul, out. Thank you www.shmoop.co
Why are so many people being killed around the world?
Think of that sad "terrorism" around our world. Is such "terrorism" being provoked by our dependence on foreign oil and other natural resource under their ground ? Dennis, Jeff, and Susan will discuss this interesting issue.
HREM, Human Renewable Energy Measurement. All these years when America had free grade school and free high school, why has college been SO expensive? When a student graduates high school the average age is 18. That's the same age when he or she can become a military soldier. If they could not afford that expensive college, they've been told to just go overseas for a few years and they will afford higher education.
The sad news is that some of these teenagers never returned home and died in the army or navy or air force. Even some that were lucky enough to return home, committed suicide after leaving these wars. When they return home, they are reminded of their loving religious upbringing. They had been taught to "love thy neighbor" or "thou shalt not kill". If they were told overseas to "go in that house and kill whoever you see" they now mourn for all those innocent men or women or children that they killed under military order.
Fortunately, President Obama is now recommending that college becomes as free to our students as was their grade school and high school.
As an example, Saudi Arabia is No. 6 on the list of dictatorships in our world. They get most of their weapons from countries like ours and we get a low price for the oil from under their ground. Instead of sending our boys and girls overseas to get that good price on their oil, why not switch to solar or wind power? That could also put an end to Climate Change on our planet.
Contraction & Expansion of the Zodiac:
Astrolonomical vs. Astrological
Astrologers today are working with a dating scheme that has been outdated for over two millenia--and which was never particularly accurate to begin with. The traditional dates for the positions of the Zodiac constellations are simply incorrect. But modern astrologers don't actually observe the sky the way ancient astrologers did. They simply go by ancient charts based on the position of the Sun in the stars over 2000 years ago. As the following table indicates, the traditional dates for the Sun's position in the Zodiac are not only out of sync with the actual sky, but they are artificially separated into 30-degree segments to make each sign last an average of 30 days.
TRADITIONAL ASTROLOGICAL DATES VS ACTUAL ASTRONOMICAL DATES *Astrological - (Aries 21 Mar - 19 Apr (30 day cycle)) Actual Astronomical - (Aries 19 Apr - 13 May (25 day cycle))*
ASR's domain is Duat - the Egyptian Underworld. He is a protective funerary god, guarding the west of the Nile where most of the cemeteries are located, and where the sun descended into the duat. As ruler of the underworld, ASR ensures that the souls of the wicked and undesirable do not pass into his realm. He is both a god of fertility and the embodiment of the dead and resurrected king. Once the ruler of Egypt died he became AST (who then gave orders to the living). Seker is Asar's title when he is resurrected and he takes his place in the Netherworld as the king. In this aspect he presides over the judgement of the heart of the aspirant. His union with Aset symbolises the achievement of striving for spiritual salvation or resurrection The union with Nebethet symbolises bondage, suffering and the cycles of birth and death, known as reincarnation.
Six Baltimore police officers will face charges in the death of Freddie Gray, the city's prosecutor said Friday in an unexpected announcement that brought cheers from protesters and words of protest from the police union.
The announcement by Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby left no doubt about what she thinks happened April 12, when Gray was arrested: The 25-year-old died, she said, after suffering "a severe and critical neck injury" while being transported "handcuffed, shackled by his feet and unrestrained" inside a police van. It is against police policy to transport a prisoner without proper restraints such as a seat belt.Check East Side Story Movie
The Real Truth is Jesus Christ living a perfect life but carried the sins of world to the cross where He died to redeem us from the wrath of God the Father. After three days in the tomb He rose from the dead and now sat on the right side of the Father God. One day He will return to bring born again believers home to God the Father. I hope you will be in that homegoing my friend. The Holy Spirit lives inside of every Christian. I love you!
Susan Berman grew up in Las Vegas luxury as the daughter of Davie Berman, casino mogul and notorious mafia leader. After her father died she learned about his mob connections. Susan then dedicated her life to learning about Vegas and its underworld chiefs. Her life took a bizarre turn in l982 when Kathie Durst—the wife of her good friend, Robert Durst, mysteriously disappeared. Durst was a prime suspect but the case was never solved. After the Kathie Durst case was reopened, the DA was about to question Susan Berman about what she knew regarding a phone call Kathie supposedly made to her medical school dean saying she was sick and wouldn’t be at school. The call was placed the day after she had vanished. Soon after the Kathie Durst case was reopened, Susan Berman was found dead, shot in the back of head. No forced entry, no robbery, nothing missing from her home.
The book covers what led to Durst’s capture. Police records placed him in California at the time of his good friend Susan Berman’s murder. HBO filmmakers discovered a letter unknown before, written by Durst to Susan, a dead-on match to the cadaver letter police say the killer sent before Susan’s body was discovered.

Freddie Gray was brutality beaten by Baltimore Police, and subsequently died as a result of the cops' savagery. Freddie Gray, is one of the countless victims in the United States' long legacy of racially based repression, oppression and state sponsored violence. Join us this extremely important episode as we critically delve into the ongoing situation in Baltimore and the racist media portrayal of African/black people that are rightfully protesting reprehensible institutional racism, and what needs to happen to radically change things.
I hear all too often the question "What does Africa & Black history have to do with what we do today?" I always hesitate.How do you explain a process to someone who believes they live in a bubble only affected by what happens today?I explain that I have a scar over my right eye because a guy sucker punched me one day as I was walking home from school. Now I am always aware when someone walks up on me from behind. Police self report domestic violence at the rate of 40% of ALL domestic violence reports.Their spouses are deathly afraid to report because...In a nationwide survey of 123 police departments, 45% had no specific policy for dealing with officer-involved domestic violence. http://www.purpleberets.org/violence_police_families.html Where were all of these people who call Black children thugs and criminals when the students at Kentucky University rioted in the streets for the 2nd year in a row. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/04/05/1375772/-Riots-Looting-Fires-Break-Out-in-Kentucky-Don-t-Worry-It-s-Mostly-White-Kids# Kentucky fans rioted because they lost a basketball game. Baltimore youth rioted because another black man was paralyzed and died while in police custody for the second time. Pastor Jamal Bryant brought the Bloods and the Crips together this past Sunday with the Nation of Islam and a Christian Church in peace to address and create a plan to overcome the systemic issue of domestic violence on the black male. Did Fox, NBC, ABC or CBS report that breaking news? NO!
TONIGHT- Medium & Channeler SOLANA channels John Lennon in the afterlife. Join us for this celebration and Q&A of one of the most beloved men in our history, Mr. John Lennon.
The killing, on Dec. 8, 1980, marked a major social shift
John Lennon’s death 34 years ago today triggered the same shock and outpouring of grief as the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and John F. Kennedy. So wrote critic Jay Cocks for his 1980 TIME cover story about the legacy of the late Beatle and his death by the hands of Mark David Chapman. The touching tribute — comments from Bruce Springsteen that are included in the piece may bring tears to your eyes — featured one memorable quote from Lennon’s wife, Yoko Ono: “This is not the end of an era,” she said in the days after he was killed. “The ’80s are still going to be a beautiful time, and John believed it.”
But in his piece, Cocks makes the case for why Ono’s words were more wishful thinking than a truthful declaration.
The band had broken up a decade before, but Lennon’s death signaled a shift more serious than the Beatles’ dissolution ever did. After all, the music of the Beatles would be around indefinitely, whether or not the band continued to record together.
When Lennon died at age 40, however, everyone who had grown up with the Beatles was approaching middle age too. In addition to their sadness about Lennon’s death, they could not ignore their own mortality. “For everyone who cherished the sustaining myth of the Beatles,” Cocks wrote, “the murder was something else. It was an assassination, a ritual slaying of something that could hardly be named. Hope, perhaps; or idealism. Or time. Not only lost, but suddenly dislocated, fractured.”

The devil has a million reasons for you to die. GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOU TO LIVE. Listen to the Holy Spirit through Pastor Fran who is highly concerned for the saftey of both citizens and public servants "Police Officers" through out the USA. Reference Ezra 4-6, Haggai and Zecharian.
When sections of Baltimore erupted in violence on Monday, Bishop Walter Thomas, a local pastor at the New Psalmist Baptist Church, received a call for clergymen to gather at North Avenue in an effort to restore calm in a city reeling from the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old who mysteriously died in police custody last week.
Thomas found himself among a line of 175 pastors, their arms linked together, as they worked to clear Baltimore’s main thoroughfare, urging groups of young men and women to go home. Baltimore’s police waited several hundred yards behind them, hoping the clergymen could disperse the crowd in their stead, according to Thomas.
Steve Wyatt and Joe Harvey each have a powerful testimony after suffering unfortunate pain.
Steve's first wife left him and his second wife died tragically with cancer.
Joe's daughter, Mandy, a promising voice major at Colorado State University, quickly went deaf, losing most of her hearing by the end of her freshman year.
Each man continues to minister effectively today: Steve is lead pastor with The Crossroads Church in Anthem, Arizona. Joe is associate professor at John University Florida in Kissimmee.
Their stories of health and hope will inspire your walk, no matter the obstacles in your road.
