Obamacare, abortion and taxes

A sensible scripture-based answer to the question of “should we pay taxes which possibly will go to support abortion?” Render unto Caesar

Remembering Hebron

Israel recently observed the 80th anniversary one of the worst massacres in the history of the Palestine area. Another good example of Islam as a “peaceful” religion. The propaganda about the existence of Israel and US support being the reason for the on-going atrocities in the Middle East is bunk. It id the htred and violence of the Oslamic religion that is the source....

Obama’s Education in Anti-Semitism

An interesting perspective from someone with a similar background to THE ONE. ISRAEL NEWS UPDATE, INSIGHTS AND VIEWS Share Tue at 11:19am THE SOURCE OF OBAMA’S ANTI-ISRAEL POLICY BY E.W. Jackson Sr. E. W. Jackson is Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries, an author and retired attorney. Like Obama, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family. I am black, and I was once a leftist Democrat. Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama’s policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see. All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fuelled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization. We heard it in Jesse Jackson’s “HYMIE town” remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright’s remark about “them Jews” not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a “Jew” problem. Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania, I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were “greedy cheaters” who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood. I was too young to understand what it means to be Jewish, or know that I was hearing anti-Semitism. These people seemed nice enough to me, but others said they were “evil”. Sadly, this bigotry has yet to be eradicated from the black community. In Chicago, the anti-Jewish...

Orwellian? I Think So.

Let’s all monitor our neighbors and friends, and report any activity contrary to what THE ONE wants. Shades of 1984

Words are that powerful

Moshe Kempinski Torah Portion ; Matot (Numbers 30:2-32:42) The Torah portion of Mattot begins with the admonitions regarding vows, oaths and obligations. The old adage” sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never harm me” is simply false in Judaism. Words are not harmless nor are they harmful. Yet words have power. The world was created with words. Relationships are built up with words. Our children discover themeselves through words…theirs and ours. Words thrown about carelessly can foster hatred and can lead to the destruction of the temple, both spiritual and physical.. Yet on the other hand words can create songs and words become the vessels of prayer. Yet we are so careless with them! King Solomon wrote “Better that you not vow, than that you should vow and not fulfill.( KOHELLET/ Ecclesiastes 5:4) Words have an innate power. In Hebrew the name for a “word” is DAVAR and the name for a “thing” is a davar. We learn that words create new reality and at the same time that reality speaks words. That is the basis of our relationship with the Infinite One .We use words to bridge the seemingly impossibly wide chasm between we the finite and He the infinite. At the same time the Creator speaks with us through his creation, things speak. That is the secret of the bridge between us that was taught to Moshe ( Moses) in the cleft in the rock when he asked G-d to show him His Glory. Our torah portion then warns us of the power, potential and dangers of words and vows. It sets up...

Why Should They Read Before Voting?

We don’t elect Members of Congress to read legislation before they vote on it, do we? That would be asking too much of them to actually know what they are voting for or against. Reading Bill...
