Matt 4:18-20 18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19 "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will make you fishers of men." 20 At once they left their nets and followed him. Andy Stanley makes this observation: When Jesus called his disciples, he told them what he wanted to make them to be. He didn’t say, I want to make you to be more disciplined (although that would have been great). He didn’t say I want to make you more religious. He didn’t say, I want to make you more theologically astute so you can answer any questions about the mysteries of the universe. He said…I want to make you to be something very special and very specific. I want to make you fishers of men. Now it makes sense that he would use this metaphor. We know that at least four of his 12 disciples had been apprenticed in the fishing industry: James, John, Peter, and Andrew. Three of those four were actually in his inner circle (Peter, James, John).
It also makes sense that he would use this comparison because when he called them they were actually fishing at that moment. So he said, you have been an apprentice in the fishing business, and its great that you are good at catching fish and selling them for profit. But I am going to apprentice you in a brand new business with profit for eternity. I am going to teach you to do what I do and make you fishers of men. This is still one of the primary objectives that Jesus has for his followers. So let’s ask the question: How many of you have chosen to follow Christ?

Why the New York Times is Wrong – Using Basic Genealogy Tools and Methods to Show that Your Family Name Was Not Changed At Ellis Island.
There is a common misconception, call it an old wives tale or an urban legend, that family names were often changed at Ellis Island. Such myths gain a great deal of credibility when newspapers such as the New York Times, the country’s “paper of record”, perpetuates these myths by repeating them, in this case in obituaries.
When Kenneth saw one of these obituaries a few years ago, he wrote to the Times pointing out their error and suggesting sources that they could check to verify what he was saying. When they seemed to ignore him, he did the research on the family of the person named in the obituary and was able to show what the name was when the family immigrated and how the family name changed as they adapted to life in the United States. He sent all of the proof to the Times and was still ignored. Finally the Times responded. They were not going to do anything to correct the erroneous obituary but suggested they might do a news story on the issue. The experience led him to do a search of other Times obituaries with the Ellis Island story. He located about half a dozen. After doing the research on each, he was able to show the original name for each of them.
Kenneth A. Bravo received his JD from The Ohio State University, College of Law and his B.A. degree in Economics from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is Vice President of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies (IAJGS) and, the former president and current member of the Board of Trustees of the Jewish Genealogy Society of Cleveland. Bravo has lectured on a number of genealogical topics.
America's second most egregious sin is the deliberate failing public school system. Education is a civil right and the system itself is proving to be a cash cow for corrupt politicians and government employee's. The callous response of the system controlled by the Teachers Union is criminal and the only way this will ever change is through parental revolt. Protest should be unimpeded until the destruction of this pipeline to destruction is abolished.
PT 3 STATE OF BLACK AMERICA: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT. RECENTLY WE WERE FOUND OUT THAT POLICE IN FERGUSON WERE USING THE PEOPLE AS A CASH COW TARGETING PEOPLE OF THE CITY TO KEEP REVENUE FLOWING THROUGH THE SMALL CITY. IN A REPORT BY THE URBAN LEAGUE IT IS SAID THAT 70% OF BLACKS SAY THEY HAVE BEEN MISTREATED BY THE POLICE ALL ACROSS AMERICA, THAT 10 TIMES HIGHER THAN OUR WHITE COUNTERPARTS.
STATE OF BLACK AMERICA FOR YEARS HAVE SEEN MEN AND WOMEN LOCKED UP WITH MUCH HIGHER SENTENCES AND HIGHER BAILS AMOUNTS...NO ONE WILL GO ON RECORD TO SAY IT'S HAPPENING DUE TO BEING AFRAID OF THEIR JOBS. IT IS REPORTED THAT WHILE WE MAKE UP 30% OF THE POPULATION 60% OF THAT IS IN PRISON. FROM 1970 TO 2005 PRISON POPULATION GREW 700% IS HIGHER NOW FOR SURE.
WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT CRIME ARE BLACKS AND MINORITIES BEING TARGETED ?
