HE LIFTS US UP: ABUSE AWARENESS– Cyber-stalking and Cyber-bullying

Cyber-bullying and cyber-stalking

Cyber-stalking is defined as the use of electronic means to stalk or repeatedly harass an individual, a group of individuals, or an organization.

Cyber-bullying is defined as actions that use electronic means to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm another with the use of internet service and mobile technologies such as web pages and discussion groups as well as messaging with the intention of harming or discrediting another person.

Cyber-bullying vs. cyber-stalking– Sounds basically the same to me but I will clarify: Continue reading

Tough Issues of Christianity – “Who do you say I am?”

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

In this blog of the “Tough Issues of Christianity” series, we will examine one of the longest standing and most controversial issues of the Christian Faith. The purpose of this blog is not to solicit responses, although they are welcome, but to foster deep thinking into the very foundation of Christian Faith – Christology.
“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” (Matthew 16:15 NIV)

Jesus asked this question of His disciples. I believe He asks the same of us today.

Christology

Very briefly, Christology is the study of the nature of Jesus Christ, His human nature and His deity. In the Western Church, we generally have come to believe that Jesus was/is both fully human and fully God. One of the great mysteries of Christianity is “how can this be?”

Another great mystery is the Holy Trinity. How can three distinct persons be One?

Before the Rooster Crows: Do we give Peter a bad rap?

Holy Week: Peter’s betrayal

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

The Apostle Peter is widely remembered for his denial of Jesus on the night of His arrest. Jesus had predicted this denial:

Matthew 26:34-35
Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the rooster crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.

As we see, not only Peter, but all of the disciples declared their loyalty.

Following His arrest, a bound Jesus was taken to the house of the high priest, Caiaphas. Peter followed and entered the courtyard. There, Peter did deny Jesus three times, as Jesus had said he would.

Matthew 26:69-75
Now Peter sat without in the palace: and a damsel came unto him, saying, Thou also wast with Jesus of Galilee.
But he denied before them all, saying, I know not what…

Was your Easter ham kosher?

Was your Easter ham kosher?

Last week, I asked this of many customers as they purchased a ham for their Easter feast. Huh… A KOSHER ham! Never heard of such a thing.

Old Moshe would be rolling in his grave, wouldn’t he. Would that make him a Holy Roller?

Well, I was selective in the people I asked this question, people I knew or recognized. People who know I have a sense of humor that is a bit off much of the time. But I had a purpose is asking this question.

Most, as they purchased their Easter hams also had an assortment of other things, eggs, stuffed bunnies, dyes, mucho wine. Often they had children with them who were very excited about Easter and all the gifts and celebration. And we should celebrate! There is no more wonderful time than Easter. What is represented by that celebration is the, THE greatest event in all of creation. What a wonderful time for family to gather and celebrate.

But too often, we forget to celebrate the true meaning of Easter, the resurrection of our living Lord and Savior. My mention of the “kosher ham” was a gentle reminder of what Easter is really about, both the history of the Jewish people and of the miracle of the Resurrection.

Now, as you might expect, I got a wide variety of responses, but none hostile. I was buoyed that most people I shared this with did not have to be told that there is no such thing as a “kosher ham.”

But they smiled, and many thanked me for reminding them, amid the joyful celebration of Easter to be sure to include (I hope center on) what Easter is really about.

Shalom, Art

A Hill with THREE Crosses… Which one is yours? (reblog)

Holy Week:

Originally posted on ChristianBlessings:

This is re-blogged from November, 2010.

This is Holy Week. No better time to ponder the questions raised here:

All four of the Gospels talk about the three crosses on the hill of Golgotha:

John 9:18: “Here they crucified him, and with him two others, one on each side and Jesus in the middle. “

Matthew 27:38: “Two robbers were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left.”
Matthew 27:44: “In the same way the robbers who were crucified with him also heaped insults on him.”

Mark 15:27: “They crucified two robbers with him, one on his right and one on his left.”
Mark 15:32b: “Those crucified with him also heaped insults on him.”

Luke 23:32-33: “32Two other men, both criminals, were also led out with him to be executed. 33When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the…

Nuggets – The Good Pleasure of God

The Good Pleasure of God
“Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power.” (2 Thessalonians 1:11)

God’s good pleasure withholds judgment! “It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23). “The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy. The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works” (Psalm 145:8-9).

God’s good pleasure is to do good to His people! “The LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly” (Psalm 84:11). “Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:3-4).

God’s good pleasure forgives us! “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea” (Micah 7:18-19).

God’s good pleasure is to bring about His will! “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. . . . So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:9-11). “The Lord . . . is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). When we live in God’s good pleasure, we are able to “delight” in Him. HMM III

Some last forever…
some come to an end.
