Resurrection 

THE  THIRD  JEWISH  TEMPLE 
.................................................................................................................................
-  Jesus was not resurrected. 
-  In his new incarnations his messages changed.
-  Jesus' return was fulfilled in 'symbolic' terms.
-  "Either it's One or The Other..."
-  What we expect is not what we are "going to get".
-  My interruption has lead to a different "understanding"...
-  "Spiritualizing" the text; but first we must stay in context of the original.
-  The Real Miracle of Jesus was "that he brought people together that had never really been before".
-  Serious Spiritual implication here...
-  When and How do we "interpret" the Bible? Hermenutics  When are things solid?
-  Christians denomination hardly agree on anything, but WE all believe Christ was God.
-  You can mis-read the Bible, but Christ's Second Coming wont be mis-read: "Every Knee Shall bow!"

THE PAGANS OF SCRIPTURE


I revamped my RESEARCH material. Would be interested in your comments.

Hum... What ARE Lies again????

Sure makes you wonder... Sorry it's just a "Conspiracy" Oh...okay...

Let's just face the facts and quit trying to distort the truth. We have a Muslim as president in the White House who lies about and refuses to satisfy legitimate questions into his very suspicious background and behavior.  Check it out for yourself.

1.     Back in 1961 people of color were called "Negroes". So why/how can the 1961 Obama Hawaiian 'Birth Certificate' released by the White House state he is 'African-American' when the term wasn't coined and in widespread use at that time?  A birth certificate is supposed to be a public record, but the President has been able to order his original birth records sealed so we can't see them, but couldn't we look at the certificates of other black Hawaiians born in 1961 to see if they are also described as "African Americans?"  Could it be that the "White House Certificate" is simply a forgery, one where the forger thought that political correctness required not using the now out of date term "Negro?"

2.     The birth certificate that the White House released Lists Obama's date of birth as August 4, 1961, and named Barack Hussein Obama as his father.
No big deal, right?  However, the certificate also states that his father is 25 years old having been born in "Kenya , East Africa." This wouldn't seem
like anything of much concern, except for the fact that Kenya did not come into existence as a country until 1963, 27 years after his father's birth. How could Obama's father have been born in a country that did not yet exist?  Until Kenya became a country in 1963, two years after Obama's "birth," it was known as the "British East Africa Protectorate."  Wouldn't there be thousands of birth records from the British East Africa Protectorate for the years prior to 1963 that we could examine to see if "Kenya" appears  on any or all of those.  Or, could this simply be another example of a less than careful forgery?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenya

  3. On the birth certificate released by the White House, the listed  place of Obama's birth is "Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynaecological Hospital".
This seems impossible because in 1961 the two institutions were named "KauiKeolani Children's Hospital" and "Kapi'olani Maternity Home" respectively. The two were not combined to form what became the Kapi'olani Maternity & Gynaecological Hospital until 1978, fifteen years after the Obama birth.  How can this particular hospital name be on a Birth Certificate dated  1961 if the name did not come into existence until 1978?  Explanation?  Carelessness?  A forgery?
http://www.kapiolani.org/women-and-children/about-us/default.aspx

3.     Why hasn't this been discussed in the major media?
Perhaps a clue comes from Obama's book on his father.
He writes how proud he is of his father fighting in WW II.  Unfortunately, as stated above, the "Birth Certificate" says his father was 25 years old in 1961.  That would have put his father's date of birth in approximately 1936.  A non- revised history book, one that hasn't been altered to satisfy the author's goals will quickly verify that WW II occurred basically between the years 1939 and 1945.  Not many three year-olds fight in wars, and even in the last stages of WW II,  Obama's father wouldn't then have been more than nine years old!  Does that mean that Mr. Obama is actually a liar, or is it that he simply chooses to alter historical facts either to satisfy his imagination, or possibly for political purposes?

  5.  "Wedding ring is in for repair"
Since when does a plain gold wedding band need repairs, along with a watch, and then for a whole month?  Another piece falls into place.
In a recent press conference last week President Obama was not wearing his wedding ring, nor was he wearing his watch.  When noticed, his staff explained that his ring was out for repairs. No reason was given for the missing watch.  So is it just a  coincidence that July 7 began the month of Ramadan, and that Muslims are forbidden from wearing jewelry during that time?  Could that possibly be the explanation?  Even though President Obama hasn't been to a Christian church service since entering the White House, and even though he routinely leaves Washington D.C. in order to avoid the presidential duties usually conducted by our presidents at Christmastime, we know he's a committed born again Christian because he said so during his campaign!  But, really?

An: Open Letter

A dying senior citizen tells it like it is:
 It will be well worth the two minutes it requires to read this. It is quite impressive.  
You can be Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Independent or Libertarian and I bet this will hit a nerve. Our country is in real trouble.    
This gentleman is obviously quite smarter than the two senators he sent it to. All I can say is amen to everything he said. A very articulate letter sent to the two U.S. Senators from Washington State. April 3, 2013
 Senator Patty Murray
 Senator Maria Cantwell  
 
Washington, DC , 20510   

 

Dear Senator:  

I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important - honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.


Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.  


Last year, the president spent an estimated 1.4 $billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America 's answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the "perfumed princes and princesses" of our country.  


In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. "Obama Care," a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.


You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the "one percenters," consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).  


You understand very well the only two rules you need to know - (1) How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote ) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called "safety net" has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps - pretty much all Democrat voters - and the program is absolutely rife with fraud with absolutely no congressional oversight?  


I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.  


As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 - 1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." I'm only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?  


While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use, and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.


As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me "You'll just have to take a pill," while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.


The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go on line where many others will have the chance to read one person's opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.


I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours,ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.


My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.



Sincerely,

That one thing to do...

The Grand concept of all the Mythological Deities being manifested in ONE GOD misses the simple fact of the matter; human's limited experiential awareness of what "GRAND" really is. We have only just recently begun to explore beyond our small watery grain of sand. GOD is far vaster than our finite thoughts can comprehend. 2,000 years after the 'Jesus' experience and we still can't agree or understand what that was all about. We kill each other as drunk drivers, in wars over seas and leave trash on the moon and in space; yet, we pride ourselves on having 'figured it all out'. Humility - we lack it. On a starry night in just the briefest of moments the heavens alone will be a reality check that we in fact don't have it all figured out.

GOD is amazing. The Universe is amazing. We are amazing. The Big answer IS the big question we are all striving to find. We have the answer and its been right in front of us the entire time. Very very few have actually embraced it. Many only in fleeting moments. I still chase after it, basking in it's ebb and flow! It is -----

15 YEARs Working for The State of Texas


   I have passed my 15 year mark of working for the State.  From Mental Health and Mental Retardation to The Department of Aging and Disability. From The Corpus Christi State School to the Denton State Supported Living Center; at both facilities I have been a direct care staff working alongside many many other great people.  We strive to care for the Mentally Disabled of our society, the Forgotten Citizen.  It is a very challenging field; yet, necessary and dutiful and rewarding experience.  For many of the individuals included among this population, we the Care-giving Staff are the only "Family" a lot of these folks will ever have in their lives. For several (or the few) of them whose families are around, we are still taken in becoming their loved one.  You can not help but get close to these individuals, residents, clients, people served - 'humans' that we work with.  After a while you begin to view them as members of your own family as well.

   Over the past 15 years of working with the mentally challenged I have seen several individuals pass away. From each I have taken an experience and a lesson to add to my own understanding of life.  Life is precious, no matter the form in which it takes. A society that cares for the weakest among its people gains more than it can receive. Story after story after story.  Countless experiences.
  The one thing I've learned? We are all the same. Spirits encased in flesh. We all have needs and the greatest of which it to have a relationship with others.  I am glad, blessed and honored to have had the privileged to work with such a population of individuals. For we are all only a 'hair's breadth' away from being just like these frail minded and physically limited people.  We take so much for granted: our ability to think, speech, mobility, housing, independence and freedoms that grow from there. I realize we can not sit about and minutely count our "blessings" but we can appreciate and care for those in our own circle of influence. From helping a lost stranger read a map, change a tire, open the door, hold the elevator, call out stranger danger to kids at the park; just simply taking an extra step beyond 'yourself' is giving back... Wouldn't you want others to extend a hand to you in a crisis?

My Journey

I was raised in the cult of Jehovah's Witnesses, then came out as a Southern Baptist. I became discouraged by the political double speak and playing church. Having been raised that "everything is of Pagan origin" I then left the church in search of questions from the Pagan community.  Not disrespecting that community of friend who enlightened me into so many answered questions; yet, in my heart of hearts even among them there was a deep longing for a greater truth.

Uncovering all the Organizational lies of The Watchtower was very liberating.  Learning Scriptures on my own and desiring to grow, learn and share was so hampered as a Baptist because the enthusiasm of being such a sponge seemed to turn others off as their own desires had died as the baptismal waters dried.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Pagan learning experience and embraced it as best I could, but an experience in a personal journey for answers only brought me back to Christ.  For what was fascinating is not so much the biography of Jesus in the synoptic Gospels but how Paul enlightened a much broader scope on what that life meant.  Yes it is great and wonderful to read, study and learn the life of Jesus and heed the examples of a perfect life lived. Yet to view that as transcendent to its real meaning all these years later in our "modern" lives is powerful.

The Pagan Community and the Christian community are worlds apart in their view of GOD and that view manifests itself differently in the behaviors of its adherents.  One views the other as Liberal, promiscuous without morals and the other is viewed as judgmental and bitter. I was raised with a Black and White worldview, yet as an 'adult' have come to believe that there is an awful lot of Grey in life. Truth is somewhere in-between Religion and Science and neither have the totality of Truth because they are tainted by the human element of arrogance and change.

I have always been a Seeker, ever since I was a small child I always heard "God" talking to me; a voice in my heart I could never completely block out in my darkest of days. GOD has always been there for me. After I stopped running from him I only realized I ran to where he had been waiting for me to arrive. Amazing. Life is a funny thing and others who view our journey don't always see the twists and turns that develop us in to who we are, and yet to become. Each of us develop our "purpose" for being.

I have always believed and viewed myself as a Servant. Sometimes I have only served my own selfish interests, but those days have been unfulfilled and left me feeling drained, empty and thirsty.  In living up to my self-view of being a Servant I have always felt happier living in a manner that was helpful and giving to others in their need; I got back the joy seen in their eyes.

Working with the Mentally Handicap, helping a complete stranger change a tire, aid folks from a burning home, teaching a kid to swim (even my own); has always brought greater joy than watching others Serve.  Allowing the Spirit of Christ's servant-hood is not a judgmental bitter thing.  There is a higher calling to bliss beyond the base desires of the flesh, and for far too long I've neglected His calling in my life.

I am truly truly sorry that my Pagan friends fail to understand that there is a deeper joy to be had when I look beyond myself.  My God is the one who teaches me to love and care not only for the planet, the animals but for my fellow man as well. No man has greater love than to - give back, instead of keeping all for himself.  Christ gave it all as our example to do the same.
