Much To Talk About- 99

10 Feb

#1. Babylon Exile

Over 100 tablets that date back to the times of Nebuchadnezzar’s rule in Babylon, now modern-day Iraq, have been placed on display in Jerusalem as a further testament to the reliability of the Scriptures.

The palm-sized tablets, which provide a glimpse into the lives of the Jews during the time they lived in exile in Babylon, had been discovered in Iraq and held by a UK-based Israeli collector. The artifacts contain writing in the ancient akkadian cuneiform script and detail transactions, trades and contracts between Jews in approximately 500 B.C.

Looks like a good find

Historians believe that the discovery of the ancient tablets, which also mention the Chebar River noted in Ezekiel 11, to be a fascinating find.

“We started reading the tablets and within minutes we were absolutely stunned,” Babylonian expert Filip Vukosavovic told reporters. “It fills in a critical gap in understanding of what was going on in the life of Judeans in Babylonia more than 2,500 years ago.”

#2. I Have Trouble With This

The chief justice of the Supreme Court of Alabama has announced that probate judges who defied his orders not to issue same-sex “marriage” licenses in violation of the state constitution will now face charges.

“Charges will be filed against probate judges who violated the chief justice’s orders,” Roy Moore wrote on Facebook Monday night.

Moore had issued his order late Sunday night banning probate judges in the state from issuing the licenses to homosexuals.

While Christians are to oppose sin and the practice of it, this is going about it the wrong way.

Nearly 500 “churches” in the United States will commemorate Charles Darwin’s birthday this week with “Evolution Sunday,” but many other congregations plan to recognize the biblical Creator and celebrate “Creation Sunday” instead.
Christian churches simply need to preach the truth, properly educate their people and avoid such gimmicks as ‘creation Sunday’. Why stoop to the level of those false churches who strive to make God angry.

Last week, multiple news sources reported that a Sunni mosque in Irving has decided to establish an Islamic Tribunal to hear disputes among the Muslim community.

In interviews with local media, Islamic Tribunal members asserted that the purpose of the Islamic Tribunal is to give an Islamic perspective on how Muslims should act, and nothing more.

“We are not here to invade the White House or invade Austin. … We are humble and want to settle a problem between Muslims,” said Imam Moujahed Bakhach. “Maybe in their mind, the misconception about what they see through the media is that Shariah means cut the head, chop the heads, cut the hands, and we are not in that.”

Even though it has no legal standing, how long will it take before they demand equality and legal standing?  Now that the gates have been opened for altering the institution of marriage why should they be closed when it comes to different religion’s views of legal action? Let’s make everything equal so that all people can be appeased and happy– except God.

#5. Turn The Other Cheek

On Sunday, Fry made a number of controversial comments on RTE television’s “The Meaning of Life” program. When asked by Irish TV presenter Gay Byrne what he would tell God if he could meet him, the actor replied: “I would say: ‘bone cancer in children?’ What’s that about?”

He added: “Because the God who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac, utter maniac. Totally selfish. We have to spend our life on our knees thanking him?! What kind of god would do that?”

God gets the last laugh and this guy, to quote Jesus, does not know what he is doing.  You can try to tell him the other side of the story but the question would be: would he or other atheists actually open their minds and listen to it?

#6. T.V. Is Not the Place For These Issues

In the latest episode of Lifetime’s docu-soap “Preachers’ Daughters” airing on Jan. 30, one preacher’s daughter, Kristiana Flowers, admits her struggle with homosexuality, while her housemate and fellow preacher’s daughter, Cierra Vaughn, is strictly against it because of her biblical values. Cierra, 22, is forced to defend those values when she hears about Kristiana’s struggles and witnesses lesbians on the party scene in Cabo, Mexico, where nine girls were grouped together to do missions work for the show.

Some people may not agree with me but personal issues are not entertainment and should not be broadcast on t.v. to make money.
