Cops killed a white woman from Australia.. this will definitely be an international incident. And I bet the cops will go to jail. Now if she was a few shades darker it'd be a different story and people would be calling her a thug.
I recently heard a discussion where a podcaster was discussing this issue (I'm thinking it was Undisclosed, but it also could have been the Red Couch podcast. My memory is fuzzy.) The advocate said that unfortunately, America won't address police brutality until white people are being killed. Maybe this will be a catalyst.
The police provide an essential service to our country. They shouldn't be threatened that the tax payers ask them to implement research based practice, training, and culture. This is the norm of every other profession. My field has changed dramatically in the last 30 years. It is my responsibility to adapt my practice to what is proven to be most effective.
We wouldn't want a surgeon who refused to take our appendix out laparoscopically just because that's not how it's always been. Know better, do better.
Just because your white and shot by a cop doesn't mean there will be justice. My uncle was shot 12 time 10 feet away by crooked cops with a lot of witnesses including his wife a d son and there was no media nor justice for him. And on top of that his wife killed herself two weeks later.Oh and the cops didn't have body cameras on but my uncle had surveillance cameras around his home and they took the video and it disappeared.
She is a white lady.. cop will be found guilty & sent to jail for life. If she were a back lady.. cop would be found not guilty and gotten a raise... True Story
The moral of this and so many other stories like it is, Never call the police unless whatever has happened is serious enough to risk someone getting killed, including yourself. That's not sarcasm but just a logical conclusion based on evidence available regarding the current state of US policing.
You have made a factual mistake. Sri Lanka were drubbed 3-0 in tests, 5-0 in ODI and 1-0 in T20 against India. Your article mentions that Sri Lanka won the T20 match against India, but that is not so.
Gayle must play only t20 Samuel really forget how to play cricket AND where is Blackwood he is good odi player but playing test only and holder is good local tournaments player but captain at odi and testSo they don't deserve straight World Cup spot#thatsmypointiofview
Zampa to Chahal on instragram: what field i should set for virat?... Really, this guy made Aussies ashamed, he doesnt have any idea that he's an international cricketer, doubting his own ability. why is he picked in the squad just compare Zampas body language to Starc, he looks like a kid.knows nothing about bowling.
People who get their panties in a bunch about how OTHER PEOPLE should live their lives always jump up and down and scream the loudest......they make sure they're heard;sad,really.
I'm still trying to work out why our major TV networks are running the "no" campaigns bullshit adverts. Nothing in them is factual, how are they allowed to spew such ridiculous tripe? There is no legitimate reason to vote no.
I was listening to some stupid politician on the radio sprucing the no vote by saying that the safe schools policy was a doorway for paedophiles? Well that's a completely different subject but was surprised that the interviewer didn't pick up on this. Seemed that they were working together to push an agenda
Would appreciate if mindef looks into safety measures. Let no one abuses their authority and give bad instruction. The nsf men hv indeed no power. It's always sad n painful to see such news esp for the family. The commander or sergeant in the wrong shd be severely punished for not ensuring safety for the ns boys and to account for his untimely death!
I hope mindef, saf and armour formation learnt their lesson on safety protocols for tank commanders when out in the field,cos it is 2nd death from same problem caused by tank topple to side! Time for tank commanders to wear liquid body armour suits
So so sad. Parent's hearts shattered to pieces. Having a 19 year old son, worries me when he go NS. To all of our sons who are serving NS, please be aware of the danger around you. Think of how worried your parents are every single day when you are away. Drop us a call everyday, as we want to know you are safe. Please take good care of yourself for our sake.
I took a friend of mine into Telstra to get her 1st mobile phone she wanted a flip phone with buttons, they tried to sell her a smart phone on a 2 year contract she is 94 years old.
I have had similar experience with Telstra. I wanted to ask about plans for when i was overseas. I got a short, sharp, "its very expensive, you dont want it, get something else overseas". They made a judgement call on my finances after a 30 second conversation and would not help me. My friend got a great vodaphone deal and all the support she needed.
This one small kindness will give Aldi more publicity than a million dollar ad campaign. This just proves that happy and attentive staff are the most valuable tool any business has
Wow! Hard to believe it's been 20 years. I had the privilege of attending a concert way back in 1992 while I was in college and I have loved his music ever since. Through different seasons of life I find myself reflecting on the lyrics and finding a sense of comfort. Also, I've been amazed to witness the impact his music has had on my son who grew up hearing Rich Mullins playing in our house. While a teen, my son thanked me for introducing this music to him, as he feels that he is one of the very best contemporary Christian artists of all time. I of course couldn't agree more.
saw the movie "Ragamuffin". sad story. the story showed the sad state that churches were in. found out for myself that history doesn't change, it just repeats.
Rich to my friends and I was the rebellious raw rebel we wanted in our church. He was unconventional. He questioned. He smoked. He was not perfect. He was raw. He lyrics were pure and authentic. He left an example of loving people along with many great songs. He taught us that it was okay to struggle and doubt, but keep on loving. We so need a reluctant leader like Rich was and far less what I see today of leaders more worried about their egos than people first. We miss you Rich. "And if I weep let it be as a man who is longing for his home"
Opposition to abortion is one thing but to make health care too expensive and / or unavailable to babies might endanger their lives as well. That is exactly what Trump / Pence are doing.
They would be much more effective if they pushed for Free Birth Control and encouraged everyone to use it until they are ready and willing to give their future child 100% of the Love that they need.
Please reconsider the photo that you're using on this article. It comes from a Life Chain event, which specifically does not use graphic images and so it is misleading to conflate those signs with the ones you are speaking of in this article. Life Chain Sunday is the first Sunday of every October, on which thousands of groups have peaceful, public prayer vigils regarding abortion in this country.
I feel like the reviewer's hate for the film is causing exaggeration. If you're a game of thrones watcher, you've seen so much violence and so many messed up scenes and you're willing to write that off because you enjoy the content. This movies goes extreme but it's not for nothing. When the violence erupts in the house, people are killing each other, bombs are going off, etc. , you have Mother distraught and confused about why people would act this way. Then you have a representation of God forgiving those people, saying "it's okay, they don't mean it" and letting the people stay amidst the chaos. The allegories in the film are beautiful at times, if you're a believer and you understand what's going on. I found it moving, and a great representation of what we do as people, we hurt the earth, hurt each other, love God but still lash out against him. It's a crazy movie, but it's full of truth that hits home for many people
The review made it sound like the director did a very effective job. Film doesn't always need to be entertaining, what it does need to do is elicit a reaction from the viewer. Sounds like Aronofsky would take much of your review as a compliment.
Films don't have to be liked to be successful at their intended goal.
Its reviews like this, where the writer complains about "the message" he doesn't get/like practically to the exclusion of every other aspect of the film, that makes me want to go see movies like this.
I've been disappointed and confused by the church many times. I keep choosing to focus on Jesus (instead of self) and review what the Bible teaches about the church - it's the bride of Christ.
People act like if you should leave the Church -- or THEIR Church -- you are bound for hedonism, apostasy, and worldly lust at the expense of everything wholesome and noble. Realizing that Church "family" have cast you into a role in their fantastical "Spiritual" Soap Operas makes the bitterness of the sour taste in your mouth even more pungent.
People are so disappointing.I still believe that we are to seek God through His fellowship, forsaking not the Assembling of Saints; but religious Folk forming cliques in God's name seem to duplicate ostracizing behavior in most every Church I've visited. Seek God, but do so knowing that people really "Love" you for the vision (or version) of God which you represent to them.
When I was angry with the Church 11 years ago, I left it and became a Satanist, performing witchcraft, making summoning circles, practicing automatic writing, offering blood, and communicating with spirits. Thanks be to Adonai that He has chased me and never gave up on me even when I was running away from Him! Thanks be to God for His infinite mercy of salvation for someone so wretched and disgusting like me!
We take these kinds of things for granted, being able to go to christian concerts whenever we want. What a treat for those who were able to join them in worship that night. Their songs are life-changing and draws you to the gospel, ultimately points you back to Jesus. Praying it changed lives that night.
I love this. I also love how there's no stage and just a simple intimate setup. It's really cool that United would put something like this on.
Eduardo Jessica E Bruno Man I hope someday I can do something like that! Not only as an attorney but to go inside those places and bring the good news and a new song for these people
Every prediction of The End has had 2 factors in common.1. It happens in the lifetime of the predictor (because my lifetime is the most important point in history & no one cares if it's centuries away).2. Every prediction so far has been wrong.
How on earth would I waste one single moment on when the world ends? This is out of fear 😂That'd steal my time. Jesus said that only the father knows, and so I follow the plan Jesus and I once made, hence life is short enough :-)
"according to a least a few hyper literalist biblical theorists, it will also be the last. According to them, September 23 is going to mark the end of the world or, at least, the beginning of the end."
In light of Matthew 24:36, this doesn't compute. Pick one, "hyper literalist biblical" or September 23 prediction.
Mark 12:17(ESV)Jesus said to them, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's.” And they marveled at him.^ The often quoted verse for those who support DACA and beyond as well as for those who don't support DACA and beyond...and by beyond, I mean open borders which is where this issue is eventually leading towards.Sure, welcoming immigrants is important to the Christian faith though the centrality to the Christian faith is still Calvary but what is also important is giving Caesar what is his and immigration policy, laws, as well as a nation's borders, are clearly Caesar's i.e. government not the church's unless the church is a nation state like the Vatican but clearly the Vatican isn't a traditional nation state and can't take in all the DACA recipients.For those who can't see why people don't support DACA, it's pretty clear. DACA was an executive order by a president, not a law passed by the congress and signed by the president. Hence, trying to make an executive order into a law without going thru congress is unconstitutional, which is why people don't like it. That is clear and if you can't see that then I'm sorry for your blindness. Other reasons for not supporting DACA is the fact that DACA gives a "pardon me, I'm cutting in" to those who have been waiting patiently and spending money to immigrate the legal way. You can argue that immigration is costly and time-consuming, and it sure is but the only way to fix that is through congress. Still, many will say that congress is too slow and too time-consuming, sure it is but congress is still how laws are made and there is no end run around that, no matter how sneakily any president tries to override congress by executive action.Another common objection to DACA is the "America is great and wonderful but not the solution to your countries problems". As much as life is truly hard for those abroad, immigrating to America isn't the solution. The real solution is for people to make their country better not to ship their kids off to America, to make sure the next generation of that country knows of their parent's home country and how to make life there better.Sadly, this thinking abroad is so prevalent and has even transferred to foreign countries forsaking their own currency and their national sovereignty to take upon America's currency because their failed leader screwed things up and would rather take the easy option of hitching themselves to America.The hard way in everything is generally the better way because it does involve work and pretty sure the Bible says some things about work. The problem is the truly hard way is no longer well traveled when it used to be the only way to travel.
What is central to the faith of the followers of Christ is ... or should be ... compassion. That de-politicizes the discussion. It's no longer "are you for or against letting immigrants from Mexico [Syria, Croatia, Ethiopia, etc.] come to the United States?" and becomes, instead, "do you act with the compassion that Jesus the Savior asked of us?"
Makes it simpler, too, because you can now apply that formula to Dreamers, homeless, elderly, mentally ill ...
This is really simple. We are all tenants and immigrants.
"The land, moreover, shall not be sold permanently, for the land is Mine; for you are but aliens and sojourners with Me."Lev 25:23
I really wish RELEVANT Magazine had not become so political... and so liberal, for that matter. They used to be such an encouraging read but now just a defender of the liberal touchy-feely viewpoint. I hope that changes soon.
Relevant goes out of its way to explain things from people they agree with but never give the benefit of a doubt to those who they disagree with. Odd
Even if that was what she said, it would still be better than Kirk Cameron claiming the hurricanes were sent by God to humble the U.S.
Well, I hope Woody doesn't fall into Mormon beliefs about Jesus. Jesus was not a man like us who became God. Jesus is God and has always been God. Yes, His part of God's essence entered into human flesh, but what makes Him is not the shell.
Surprising since The Killers are Mormons who believe the NT is corrupt and that Jesus in the NT wasn't the Son of God, but a failed prophet. The white blonde haired Jesus who appeared to the American colonialists in the book of mormon is considered the true Jesus in Mormonism.
10 And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. - Matthew 9:10-12
Love these questions! "Do we bond with each other in rumination about what we see as the coming ruination? Do we feel superior to others because we think we have it all figured out and we have the spiritual upper hand? Do we speak curses over our nation in despair and out of fear? Do we feel like if we predict and prepare ourselves for catastrophe, we’ll somehow be less damaged by it (if and) when it comes?" Great reflection questions when talking about the world today! Thanks for sharing!
This is classic Word of Faith heresy. It negates the sovereignty of God in human affairs and trivializes the suffering of the godly. Plus it doesn't even work; Charismatic "prophecies" have been proven wrong time and time again, whether it's Creflo Dollar saying Jesus would return by 2005 or Benny Hinn saying Fidel Castro would die in the 1990's.
I can agree with portions of this advice -- it's crucial to remember the hope we have in Christ, and to remember that He is in control, in spite of the circumstances we're in. And we should certainly be speaking those words of hope when it's appropriate. We should also be discerning or what we take in a speak back out, and not give in to fear. But I feel like this article crossed a line, and rather than calling us to be discerning, mature believers it seems to advocate a Pollyanna, power-of-positive-thinking mindset in which we shouldn't talk about hard things or injustices.
The article speaks this truth: "For example, God’s word says the children of the righteous will be mighty in the land. God says His help is always on the way. God says we’ll move through the valley of the shadow of death, not pitch a tent and build an affordable housing development in it. God says we will live and not die. Our God says He will give us strength and that no weapon formed against us will prosper." But it's incomplete. God's word also says that we will suffer. It's filled with prophecies warning God's people of what would come if they continue in their sin. It's filled with songs of lament for the injustice that is so rampant.
True wisdom in using our tongues is knowing when to speak words of hope, words of lament, words or encouragement, words of conviction, or no words at all. And we need people gifted in speaking in all of these ways in the body of Christ, not just the faithful, hope-filled encouragers like this author.
