Every few years the Olympics comes around and becomes the centerpiece of global culture. In a world filled with crime, war, poverty, and injustice, the spectacle of seeing people who have dedicated major portions of their lives to excelling at a physical discipline and rising to the highest levels of human achievement is not only a welcome distraction. It is inspirational, uplifting, and even awe inspiring! Seeing someone spin in the air more times than you can count, then land on a slippery surface on 1/8" wide blade of steel and do it with grace is a stunning sight to see! Watching people... Read More
PRIDE IS SWEET IN THY MOUTH, YET RUIN, IS BITTER IN THY BELLY
The trouble with the awaken brothers, is that almost every one, once awaken assumes they know the entire truth, they seem to take on an enormous sense of pride, going about stealing information from one another and presenting it to the congregation as if the Most High spoke to them first. Operating as if the Most High will give them points or blessings by telling others first some new secret about the bible, when they really don't seek after the Most High, but after fame, recognition, and the maintenance of their own pride....

“Motivation” is a word commonly used. It is a word that gets thrown around a lot. Most often people associate motivation with something positive but, in fact, it does not always encompass positive emotions. Fear is an effective motivating factor for many people. Stress is an example of how negative emotions trigger undesirable results. Many people freeze, break down, or panic when they are stressed--thus demonstrating a negative response to the motivation. However, someone who works harder and smarter to overcome the stress uses positive actions in response to that negative motivation.... Read More
We don't need to look far to find scandal, abuse, adultery, the use of pornography, lying, drunkenness and other types of reprehensible behavior among people that are supposed to be living good Christian lives. People that call themselves 'Christian' are many times the opposite of what one would consider a Christian to be (I include myself in this group, in times past). While there is an aspect of human frailty and weakness that we all will struggle with to some extent, there is a doctrine that has become a 'pillar' of the vast majority of Christian churches which is not Biblical and has led...

JOE POLITE. RIGINAL.
Joe was the epitome of politeness. The day he was born he apologized to his mum for causing her pain, indeed, for taking up space in her one bedroom with en-suite shower combo. He knew his pretty mum had a busy schedule to adhere to. His mum was single, a career woman, a go-getter corporate type. She had virtually womb- built Josphef from insemination to exclamation "it's a boy!"
Despite the careful hand- crafted genes/semen computed stats of donor,extracted, twirled and stored: precisely rigid monitorial regime, J turned out to be just a pretty normal kid...nothing... Read More
Have you ever felt it a bit odd when people say they are proud of their race, their skin color or even the country they are born in. All these things have absolutely nothing to do with you...they are just the "luck of the draw" or fate, which is outside of your control.
Seems to me if we want to be proud of something, it should entail all the important good things we have worked hard to achieve or create. Something which represents who you are and what you place value in; of which you are an active participant and have made it a priority in your life.
Pride can have both negative... Read More
A ribald lithe little man sprang from behind the huge heavy curtain before the helpers had time to pull on the worn ropes woven expertly into the folds that rasped in protest,aroused from its slumber, gold edges on the hem of black.
The cold musty stone block sweating walls of the castle glowed warm from the gigantic sparking fire that reflected the shadows of the weary knights returned from battle. They clanked, roared as one, some pushing aside the wound tenders.
Another cut another scar the men of fight were worth their tar, they clutched their tankards... Read More
