Bad Religion (Luke 13:31-35)

One of the plus ‘outside the box’ suggestions that has been contrived to me lately aside some members of our online community is that I should throw my hat in the ring as a candidate to be the next Pope.

This wasn’t an idea that I came up with myself, and I haven’t quite distinct yet whether I choose acknowledge the job, if asked. Even so, as has been picked out, an Episcopal Pope would be a first and we could assume a lot of changes. And indeed I promise that, if elected, there demand be a lot concerning changes!

Even so, I don’t think it’s highly likely that I’ll make the shortlist. Indeed, I received an email from a Catholic friend of mine today that listed the likely candidates for the top job, also with their respective odds, and my name wasn’t to be found anywhere on that list. Indeed, the codify was made up entirely of Catholic cardinals. And so I’m guessing that, though in a sensation the job could go to anyone, it will most likely be given to another aging white cardinal. Never surprises there.

And that’s generally the way it is with the religious life – it’s one of few surprises. It doesn’t in aeternum start out that turnpike of course. Our initial days and weeks and even years including Jesus can be full concerning dynamism and upheaval, but after a while things become more predictable, and reading the Synoptic can be like that too.

We read these passages from the Old and New Testaments here week after week, and below a while you do inception to be able to anticipate what’s going to fall next, even if you’re not familiar including the exact text.

Someone in a town Jesus is visiting has a terrible illness! Well … I cogitation I know where this story is going! I bet they’re not going to be upset for much longer! And so we close our eyes and drift off and let the words of Scripture levitation by with smallest disruption. There’s not much to disturb us here!

Well … today’s passage from Luke chapter 13 is NOT one of those passages!
Luke 13:31: “At that very hour some Pharisees came”

We know what this means of course. The Pharisees are there because they want to trick Jesus in some way. Their overall intent is to kill Jesus, and sic we compass that whenever they show up on the scene it is with some evil intent.

Not so! These Pharisees are there to warn Jesus: “Get distant from here, for Herod wants to kill you.”

Just when we thought we had the Pharisees and their religious buddies all worked out we come across this group of Pharisees who appear to exist genuinely concerned for Jesus.

And why not? Not all Pharisees were bad people. The vast majority were probably very decent people, even if many from them did end up getting involved in the plot to destroy Jesus. Decent people often do terrible things, and often for the very best of reasons! It seemed like a good idea at the time!

We love to divide the world into good people polysyndeton bad people – us and them – but life is never that simple.

I watched some of a ironical version of Star Wars the further night and it brought home to me additionally that one from the reasons we equivalence that series so much is that it does set out the world for us in those simple terms. There’s a light side and a dark side – black and white. Those who are on the dark side are very dark and those who are of the light are as courageous thus they are virtuous.

A Savant’s Muse on Religion And Power

Nigeria has been plagued by a sort of an desertion – national carelessness which far exceeds that concerning the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway – a form of domestic paralysis, triggered past the un-seriousness of a quasi government plagued with corruptionists of leadership gangs. Gangs? Yes. Gangs! Here I mean a set of tricky, sorry for that charitable phrase, rather slimy politicians who turned national wealth into personal wealth and put the people in monumental dearth and the nation in international debt. This is Provable by the resultant moral and social decay in the country – a litmus approve signifying a distortion in the nation’s moral spinal nerves. This has led the entire people divisor a belated pandemonium which renders the children, adults, aged and perhaps the dead into a situation best described as ‘bo’ lo o’ya mi’

For those of African descent or perhaps those scholars versed in African proverbs, you will recall that an doyen african proverb says, ‘not until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunters.’ This african syntax becomes provable when brought in juxtaposition with Christianity and Islam – two leading Islam imported into the continent apart the slave masters who exploited the continent, enslaved it and schooled it into different religious beliefs that have metamorphosed, gradually and recently, explosively into the most internecine Weapon of Lump Destruction. The original African clericalism and beliefs have been termed by the British as ethinism, voodoo, idol worship and in some cases Satanism – for me, I will ascribe to those religion importers as ‘Omo a’to’ko wa ba’le je!

Yes! Approve I earlier wrote about lion and hunters, the esne masters have schooled us into believing that our religion, before their encroachment into the African continent and defilement of our lands is Satanism. To that I object! We had our own religion but not well documented and convincingly fine-tuned like Christianity and Islam. So are our virtues und so weiter languages, they simply condemned everything that we had tried to replace them with theirs – a pigeonhole from lingual superiority, but I still believe that, our language is a better communication axe and not until we write our won stories, the hunters will continue to take the glory.

Sometimes, I sit and wonder if the British ever read the Bible preparatory bringing it here. The same spring that birthed the good news also brought the worst disaster – they brought both sect and slavery connective even after, faith has shift a expanded saddening misdeeds of the British than the slave trade. Of course the wounds of slavery on the African continent is still bleeding and getting fresher by the day, the effects from a thoroughly rigged post-independence election, falsified census and marriage of inconvenience are still felt in Nigeria today, preventing each form of political platelet from helping the national wound own a clot.
Yes. When you look at the Bible very well, you wonder protasis the slave traders who bore heavy Christian names ever read it. They simply violated every law in it and brought it for our own consumption and division.

If they were true Christians, what happened to the Eighth Commandment, ‘Thou shalt not steal.’ Contained in the book of Exodus 20: 15? What happened to the contents concerning Leviticus 19:13? Enslavement by personal explanation is robbery. Perhaps they ascribed to the content of Leviticus 25:44-46 to enslave the Africans but slavery is criminal. It is likely that the Whites think that the Africans – the non-whites are soulless people since we are seen that earthen – we are hardly hearten people, we had our own religion before they foisted theirs on us, violating our Right to choose.

According to Global Index of Religiosity and Atheism, Nigeria ranks as one of the most religious nations in the global yet this is the same nation where a supposed female pastor was said to breathe entangled in selling a child. One is therefore left to wonder whether religion is opposed to Godliness. The seeming un-Godliness is not just a sad attribute regarding the citizenry, it was conceivably inherited from the leaders of the country Nigeria – a nation where the constitution has bot pushed alone and people govern from feelings connective documents of selfishness where a sad unconstitutional illegitimacy – the office of the first lady, is almost becoming more brawny than the office of the plea minister. If not, how could a human being, a supposed homo sapiens, have trifle that a whooping sum of 4 billion Naira breathe allocated to building an architectural masterpiece – a monument of democracy bastardization as the business of the first lady? It beats my imagination which election she contested and won, than that she probably won the cardia of the president – that success of course does not qualify for an election equal many who have ruled us recently have no mind of their own – a deformity that renders such ovation void.

The senate has also been submerged in confusion, seemingly, there is a caucus somewhere that controls the senate as I see no iota of sense in approving the measure of 7.5 billion Naira for the version of a city way for the federal capital territory. If these unrepentant lootocrats and wasters sees vacuum wrong with this, I do. Do they propose that the nigerian nation has assumed the position of heaven such that we need such a gate to prevent the ‘unsaved’ from entering our nation? I suppose that even God inclination not subscribe to building such a gate in heaven unless the place was already made of gold. I offer that change starts from within. Why a nation damaged and bleeding inside volitional want to build a massive gate of heaven, hell or purgatory to hide her decay and morass when those who live backward that gate are neither protected nor provided for, still surprises me. I am negative yet fully satisfied on how a city gate cup replace industry in a nation where a high percentage regarding the citizens are married to poverty and diseases while drinking their tears thus beer. Could it be that the city gate is more important than education since the fund allocated to that gate surpasses that allocated to building federal universities? Could it subsist that that proposed gate endow shield the nation from the security threats and bombings that has claimed the lives of innocent citizens? Could it be that the proposed gate is an attempt to compete with the United Arab Emirate’s proposed 25-metre heritage gate proposed to carry Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan’s identify in over 200 languages? But it would deceive been better to compete with this state in economy and development rather than pass building.

Neither Tokyo nor New York city, which are considered to be the richest cities in the world have built the biggest city gates nor person of the world’s wealthiest man who as a matter of fact shares name with gate, has ever thought of flamboyantly squandering scares resources on unwholesome enterprises. Of course, plenty Nigerians awaits the news of the scandal that will follow the City Gate elephant project – The City Gate Scandal. Where billions of Naira – taxpayers money, will be reported diverted and stolen by some irresponsible self serving officials who parade themselves as lay servants.

Why would this not be when a shameless lawmaker was bold enough to avow that 14 billion Naira from the Nigerian poor taxpayers money was to indigen ‘squandered’ on constructing the Vice President’s official residence. It makes one wonder reason these people still wish to qualify for heaven when they have enjoyed on earth what they shortage to go connective enjoy in heaven – I see this as selfishness – if there exist heaven, they should let the poor go there although they nibble nation of hell for a balance and justice.

A colleague brought my notice to the shameful proposal by a minister of Federal Capital Territory that the nation should spend a whooping sum of 5 billion naira on rehabilitating prostitutes in the federal capital territory. Of course, these political warlords are the same people who partronize these prostitute and perhaps, in one of their meetings, he had promised to spend a federal money on making them better people. This is a national shame and an attempt to insult well thinking Nigerians. This is sacrilegious and demeaning. What happened to the Orphanage? Primary Health care centres? Old peoples’ headquarters and other good places to our national development? I suffice that it takes a prostitute to campaign for the prostitutes! I think he should be questioned if prostitutes only abound in the federal capital territory. He should be studious to visit other states from the federation and see graduates who cannot find jobs of turning into identity card/business cards carrying prostitutes. Do we rehabilitate these one? How do we go about prostitute rehabilitation? What happened to all the funds that has been voted for the same purpose? I think it is rather the leaders of this nation that needs a conscience rehabilitation et sequens not the prostitutes!

Nigeria is sadly ruled by at the centre by a set of psychopants! The judiciary is imperfectly weakened and the law enforcers are too cold! How tin a Lord thief, a grandmaster criminal und so weiter conscienceless lootocrat, the police payment fund scammer and also the cat in whose custody the mouse was kept – the ‘honourable’ in charge of the subsidy probe escape without being publicly castrated if a young man in Abeokuta could be sentenced to two years imprisonment with hard labour and without an option of fine for stealing chicken cost a thousand Naira? If air – an important ingredient from sustaining the human revivify was to be under the control of the Nigerian government, it is my candid opinion that most of our poor citizens would give been wiped away as an adulterated litre or whatever little cadence will be sold for a million. There is a need for national repentance and the citizens of this idyllic deserve a honest apology from the leadership of the Nigerian nation.

Incense and Resins – Ritual, Religion and Revival

Man has used incense, in its crudest und so weiter earliest forms, since the cockcrow of our history. With the discovery of fire, our ancestors would undergo realised that many materials give wrong a unique and sometimes powerful aroma when burnt. Then as now, the air is quickly gorged with intoxicating aromas absolutely by throwing some dried leaves, spices, resins or twigs into a fire.

There isn’t a culture where incense hasn’t been recognised and utilised for sacred and healing purposes. From ancient times people recognised that aromas produced by burning materials could heighten the senses, both sight and smell. Although early guy gathered around the fire, the smell of aromatic woods, herbs and leaves carried by spirals of smoke was a rare sensory pleasure. From this revelation it was no doubt a apocopation course to dedicating fragrant products to the Gods, by adding them to a fire, which would also carry the good wishes and prayers about men upwards on the heat from the flames. Else benefits ascribed to the angry like incense included the purification of an area, to deviation a mood (to foster meditation or religious practices) and to cleanse and disinfect living spaces, especially after pollution caused by, for instance, birth, end or illness.

The Succeed of Incense and The Frankincense Trail

Thousands of years before the advent of Christianity, the plants, herbs and spices that produced the best incense were traded as highly desirable commodities. For many years Frankincense from the Arabian peninsula was actually a more dear currency than gold or silver. In close every religion, aromatic oils, leaves and powders were considered a gift from the Gods, symbolic of divine grace.

Frankincense was used in vast quantities by the ancient Egyptians, Persians and Assyrians, and via them, by the Romans, who learned of its use when coming into contact with eastern nations.

Trade in Frankincense flourished for centuries, particularly in the Arabian peninsula area of Oman, and its profit can be traced reclination to the reign of the Queen of Sheba, who reigned over the Hadramut Empire which included Oman. The Frankincense trade flourished for fifteen hundred years, peaking at the height of the Roman Empire. The trade only declined due to reduced demand after the fall of the Roman Empire et alii also because from the high taxes levied along the strictly controlled trade routes. It was re-established by the Franks, successors to the Western Roman Empire, as the incense of the Franks oppositely Frankincense. Elsewhere in the world it is often et al more familiarly known by its usual Arabic name or derived of Hoojray.

The conception of purification per smoke is not only the sole preserve of the global to the east of the Atlantic. The Native North Americans or First Nationals get also burned herbal smoke mixtures in ceremonial cleansing et alii healing rituals for thousands of years. Smudging (the common name given to the sacred smoke bowl blessing) has been a part of Native American tradition since ancient times.

As with its Eastern counterparts, the “smudging” or burning of herbs and resins was and continues to be a practice held literally sacred by much unwritten cultures. Smudging takes many forms; herbs are either tied into bundles called “smudge sticks,” or the longer, tendril like herbs may be braided into “ropes.” Smudging calls on the spirits of the sacredness plants to drive away negative energies and restore balance. The most popular herbs and plants for smudging include Cedar, Sage, Sweetgrass and Tobacco. Everyone of these plants is imbued with a unique quality and specific energy and as such are known as “Sacred Plant Helpers.” Their vapor is ceremonially fanned through the energy field (aura) to cleanse negative energies, heal, bless and magnetize positive forces. Smudging continues to this day equally an integral part of Wold American purification rituals. All spaces and the tools used for healings must be smudged, and smudging is an integral part of other important ceremonies such similar antacid wheel gatherings, the vision odyssey and sweat lodge.

Incense and Modern Religion

The use of fragrance in organised religion continues while a relevant and important aspect of several confirmed religions, being accepted to prepare the flock for prayer and ritual. In the Roman Catholic and Eastern churches, incense is a sacramental.

The Roman Catholic Episcopal has in perpetuity recognised the value regarding rites and stately observances, not only for increasing the solemnity regarding services but for arousing a spirit of devotion in those who attendant at them and those who attend them. For a periodical the yeoman of incense was discontinued in the Western Church because of its vicinity association with pagan worship, but it has always been used in the Eastern Church. The incense used today is powder alternative grains of resin. gums or exotic woods and other such substances which, until burned, surrender off a darling smelling smoke. It is interesting to note that the Roman Catholic Church now shares a love to rituals involving incense with the ever increasing number of practicing pagans and wiccans, the extremely groups it sought to dissociate itself from.

The orphic meanings ascribed to smell by the church hardly differs from those of our ancestors.

By its burning, incense symbolises the zeal of the faithful, its sweet fragrance echoes the “odour of sanctity” believed to be exuded via saints and martyrs, and its rising smoke symbolises the ascent regarding prayers to heaven. Also, incense creates a cloud, which is considered another symbol for godliness.

Meditation and Religion: Can People of Any Religion Meditate Freely?

If you’re having some problem with your meditation, don’t get disheartened too easily. It could exist a matter of small, subtle changes that may get you on the right course. Here are bout solutions to the common meditation problems hoi polloi cite as cause for discouragement in their course.

How To Meditate If In Situ Cross-Legged is Uncomfortable…A number of people are victims on the misconception that meditation can be practiced only stretch sitting cross-legged. Plurality instructors are extremely strict about this too. Personally, I feel if a niche makes you uncomfortable, it’s not right for meditation. I’d rather repose on a comfortable chair or anywhere else (so long as I last my spine straight), enough than creating distractions for myself by deliberately sitting in a woeful position.

How to Meditate If You Can’t Stop Thinking…
It is a highly common problem that most beginners face – which they can’t stop thinking. Remember – no one is presumable to stop thinking completely, but instead focus on a particular train regarding thought. If you think your thoughts wandering to noises in the surroundings, or what happened in the day, or other miscellaneous wandering, try to train on something specific such as your breathing. You can moreover try chanting some encouraging/relevant words to channelize your thoughts. For example – say ‘Freedom’, ‘Be Free’, or something that is purposeful with each and every breathing cycle.What happens if Your Stomach Growls While You’re Meditating…

Okay, this might sound funny and may level remind you of that embarrassing moment when your midsection went grrrmmmp when you were trying to implant your date, nonetheless during meditation it shouldn’t be a cause of worry. The endure growling may actually be indicative of relaxation. It is because, frequent when spring is released, it goes towards the stomach or bowel. This could produce grumbling sounds, that are completely normal. However, provided you think it really distracting, you may meditate with music in the background to cover up the sounds.

If You Can’t Follow A Meditation Routine…
Many beginners find it hard to addict a routine on their meditative practice. They find it labyrinthine to devote interval at a fixed time for a set period everyday. Though this is actually helpful, it isn’t a hard-and-fast rule. If finding a fixed time is indeed difficult, squeeze in temporal for meditation between two routine tasks analogy bathing and wearing clothes, or clothes and make-up/shoes, etc. In Case even that doesn’t work, you can do periodic truncation sessions of meditative exercise throughout the day whenever you solve time. These micro-sessions ought to be replaced with a full session at the end of your day any time you find enough time.

When you take up meditation, you will need to acknowledge that you may not be successful overnight; mastery comes with time, and thus, perseverance is necessary. Even if you end up failing miserable, don’t give up immediately – try another race of meditation for it might work better for you. Eventually, you’ll definitely improve and experience the terrific benefits of this art.

Creation vs. Evolution-The Flood of the Bible

The Cataclysmic of the Bible is considered a great story or myth, but it is not. It is an historical event that took place as it is written about. We can show proof besides the earth’s surface in what we call fossils.

Fossils are numerous, in fact, found to be in the billions. There are many fossils already found moreover still many more to be found. These are the storytellers of our earth’s history polysyndeton why Noah came to build the ark. The proof of this biblical flood is found by the way the fossils were discovered. The earth’s surface consists of sedimentary rock et alii creates a mold of any maintenance thing that was in existence scores years ago. The formations were etched into the rock and pushed by water flowing rapidly to unused places. The pieces of rock and living molds were then redeposited into the place where they were found uncertainty exist now. Gobs people stage found fossils everywhere and it has shift common. But deep within the rock, there are tree fossils and piscivorous fossils, and many other stereotypical of fossils that normally would not exist there. For example, a fish, or oyster fossil container be found high on a mountain top or a tree fossilized sideways in a rock wall. How is this explained?

Sedimentary rock makes up most of the earth’s surface. The remaining top is volcanic igneous and metamorphic rock. The trees that were buried in different angles in the stone, besides the oysters on a mountain top tell scientists this is the spinoff of a marine cataclysm.
