From Yeshua to Jesus (Part 8 of Many)
In Syria and Jordan, to non-Jews, Paulus taught a new belief system, a much simplified version of the commandments topped by the worship of Yeshua resurrected adding, as he went, the epithet Son of God. Mark and Matthew wrote their gospels a few years after that, only to have them altered by a number of anonymous brush strokes on parchments.The Epidemic of Shortage of Men in the Church

In the contemporary day there is all sense of fogginess over diametrically opposed issues in the ethical sphere: same-sex marriage; abortion; whistle-blowing websites on paedophilia; pornography in society etc. Commonly, people diverge.

The biggest challenge to the credibility of the story of creation is that the Bible says it took 6 days, each 24 hours, and science teaches it took 4.5 billion years. While the Sages could never defend their position and could only believe because of blind faith, today we can prove both versions are correct and understand why.Apocalypse 2012: What Does the Bible Say?
Recent revelation of a 1,300-year-old Mayan inscription on 2012 indicates that the Mayans did not foresee the world ending next year; instead, they appeared to have predicted a new age beginning on December 21, 2012.

In Mark 1:40 (NKJV) the bible tells a story, “Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean,” Then Jesus, moved with compassion (my emphasis), stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.”” Let’s journey down deep a minute.Christian Persecution on the Rise As Christmas Approaches

George Washington dedicated the United States of America to God in 1789, in speech (his inaugural address at the Federal Hall) and then in prayer, at St Paul’s Chapel.
