This is some sick mess. He literally took the biblical scripture that reads ‘an eye for an eye’ (Exodus 21:24) to another level. Did the Holy Ghost lead him to do this? This post is not to ridicule Christianity nor its’ pastors. But I’m wondering, what was in the mind of these alleged ‘victims’ to even do some of the things he requested of them to do? Yeah, the pastor is indeed sick. Consequently, those men gave him the opportunity to do such horrific things in the name of Jesus. I’m done. Too disturbing to write move.
See the news and hear the charges brought against this sick man.
sorry but this video was removed by owner.
One would think that after age 18, or in many cases, 21, children would be about to make their own decisions and set out their own path. Maybe that’s true of most families in the United States of America, yet India’s a difficult culture, with a different set of principals, particularly in the area of marriage to which most marriages in the country are arranged. Most marriages that aren’t arranged are frown upon and could lead to serious issues such as family separation or DEATH even. The latter is something the couple (Rajveer and Madhuri) in the video fears, both coming from a Muslim and Hindu society. Though happy to be together, having married, they’re on the run for their lives, fearing being killed by the family, as the thought of one finding love on their own isn’t something yet grasps in their family and in much of the country. So they called the Love Commandos; a group of aging businessmen and journalists who began a movement to protect lovers from harassment by both Hindu and Muslim hard-liners, according to the BBC (Huffington Post).
The Love Commandos formed 10 years ago, and since then have opened up secret shelters to help rescue Indian couples, like Rajveer and Madhuri, who are in love but are in danger of being forced to marry someone else by their families. The couple escaped their village and made way to the Love Commandos’ shelter in New Delhi and married there.
It doesn’t matter how religious, much of an agnostic or atheist one might be. Regardless of what one might believe or not, watching something like this will indeed ‘freak’ them out. I’m a form believer in what I consider to be God’s eternal Word for sure. And that is the Bible. So why does this video freak me out so much? Because I’m human for one. And this video is about eternity. No matter what one believes about eternity, perhaps man can all agree that there is no time there. And that’s what the people in this video understood while having the opportunity to get a glimpse of heaven and/or hell when having their near death experiences.

Just had a thought the other day like wanting to run around ‘butt-naked’ through my neighborhood here in China, holding an American flag while yelling ‘America #1′, as we came out of top as the country with the most wins, having dominated the Olympic Games which was hosted in London (England). For too things would lead to me getting arrested; being naked and BLACK. But what Jason “Mayhem” Miller did takes the cake for his stunt.
The former UFC fighter had been arrested for breaking into the Mission Hills Church (Mission Viejo, CA) and causing chaos. When authorities arrived, it is said the church was completely trashed. One could imagine bibles, programs and hymn books having been scattered all over the place.
Reports say Mayhem was found laying on the couch asleep. Of course he was taken into custody and is currently being medically evaluated.
What has YMCMB done to Aubrey Graham’s ego. Dude is crazy talented I admit. But where’s the integrity? Where’s the respect? I’m by far not ‘holier than thou’ but is 2012 all about GOING OVERBOARD TO STAY RELEVANT? First Nicki Minaj with her RAUNCHY, less than classy ‘STUPID H@%’ song and video. Now DRAKE with this? From what I know about being Judaism, we’ll depending on one’s view of G-d is that, it’s nothing to be played with. I do hope many Jews see this video and speak out against Drake, his YMCMB and Universal Music Group about this mess. The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson was forced to alter his lyrics to ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ (Dangerous, 1991) because of the “Jew Me/Sue Me” line, to which many Jews cried out ‘antisemitism’. Although Drake is Jewish (African American father, Caucasian Jewish Canadian mother), it’s still distasteful and like spitting in the face of the patriarchs of the Jewish culture. I usually don’t go on an attack about one’s freedom of expression (First Amendment). Yet if you’re Jewish or have some understanding about the religion, then get what I’m saying.
Hmmmmm. Before there was the church, there was Israel. The idea of heaven and hell didn’t begin with church history. But lets not go there. I honestly believe that often times, human beings don’t want to believe that something just might be the ultimate reality. So to continue in our behaviors as well as traditions, we block it out or try to do away with the thought as goes against our lifestyle.
Or maybe this priest is just trying to find ways to justify his thoughts on the matter so that he could continue having sex with little boys.
My question to him would be how to do away with the thought about Satan if there is no Hell? And if there is no Hell, then what’s the need of a God?
Small Kentucky church took a stand as they voted to ban interracial couples from joining their congregation. And guess what it did? Causes dissension within “God’s house” against congregates concerning this matter. The church member who crafted the resolution, Melvin Thompson, said he is not racist and called the matter an “internal affair.”
The resolution says anyone is welcome to attend services, but interracial couples could not become members or be “used in worship services or other church functions.”
“I am not racist. I will tell you that. I am not prejudiced against any race of people, have never in my lifetime spoke evil about a race,” said Thompson, the church’s former pastor who stepped down earlier this year. “That’s what this is being portrayed as, but it is not.”
If it is indeed an “internal afffair”, I’m sure it has more to do with matters of his heart as well as other congregates of the Gulnare Free Will Baptist Church whom also feel that way. And if racism isn’t a factor, then what is it? I hope he doesn’t say that he prayed about it and the Lord gave him a vision to separate the ‘sheeps’ from the ‘goats’. I’m wondering what the ‘so-called Christians of this congregation would do when they get to the “pearly gates” and God says, “I condone members of your congregation calling themselves my children. So go to hell.”
Never have I heard a rape victim being sent to prison yet the rapist gets to go free. However it happens in certain countries, cultures and religions as to the attitude that the woman ‘provoked’ a man to rape her. Many would argue that it’s a religious thing and that people often abuse or misquote principles and scriptural verses to ‘justify’ a behavior, attitude or action. Whichever the case may be, no human being deserves to be taken advantage of. And no human being should be forced into making a decision that they shouldn’t have to make if the justice system was fair for all.
Yes, I too am sick and tired of this lace front party that’s going on amongst our women, predominately black. Like there is a PETA, there should be an Anti-Lace Front Association as well. Though this video seems to start off as a joke in the beginning, it’s definitely an issue needed to be addressed.
