Syria, the US, Russia, and Iran May Wind Up in a Huge Regional Conflict

It may very well be that the chemical attack didn’t really happen. If it did happen (and can be proven), it’s also very likely that it did not happen by Assad’s forces. Why would he wasted the effort when it is clear that he is winning against anti-Assad forces? All he has to do is wait them out. Besides, Russia and Iran seem to have Syria’s back and even China is interested in that area of the world. Who wouldn’t be since it has oodles of oil?

Our Leaders Are Supposed to Take Care of the “House” (America)

Sadly, if a corrupt leadership is ruling, chances are very good that due to their corruption, they won’t like it when anyone speaks against them. When they find people engaging in this, they will likely react by getting rid of you, one way or another. “In spite of such bad leadership, Solomon urged restraint. If you complain, those in authority may eliminate you.” Scary, isn’t it? Yet it makes sense. Generally, leaders who are fearful of those they rule, usually employ spies to learn what is being said about them. If leaders are truly corrupt, they probably have little difficulty using any numbers of ways to take care of people they consider to be problems. A word to the wise.

Each New Generation Must Learn the Difference Between Relativism and Absolute Truth

During the back and forth between Jesus and Pilate, Jesus tells Pilate of His kingdom that was not of this world (v. 36). Based on this admission, Pilate asks, “So You are a king?” (v. 37). At this point, Jesus responds with, “You say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”

Why Was Racism Introduced Following the Shooting Death of Trayvon Martin?

It seems apparent that this case was portrayed as racist from the beginning. One network went so far as to edit the police call from Zimmerman to make him appear to be a racist. Another introduced Zimmerman to us as a “white/Hispanic,” in spite of the fact that Zimmerman sees himself as a Hispanic. He’s also a Democrat and voted for Obama in 2008, but that wasn’t newsworthy.

Jesus, the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53

I think when read in its entirety, it is difficult (if not impossible) to assign the identity of the servant picture in the text to the nation of Israel. It simply doesn’t fit because of numerous problems. I view this section as applying to the Messiah and the Messiah is Jesus. These verses leading up to chapter 53 strikes a contrasting note in just several verses.
