Jewish Sanhedrin Challenge To Trump: Pray At Temple Mount

Written by | May 22, 2017 | 0
Posted with permission from WND Republish Reprint President Trump is headed to the Holy Land, leaving behind a domestic media frenzy over alleged campaign collusion with Russia. But the reconstituted Jewish high court, the nascent Sanhedrin, has a plan for the beleaguered president to obtain a massive blessing for himself and the world – pray at the Temple Mount. The Sanhedrin, a group of prominent rabbinical leaders who re-formed the ancient body of Jewish judges which was once the legislative body of Israel, said President Trump would help the cause of world peace by praying at the sacred location. They’re not the only ones encouraging Trump to take such a step. “I love this idea by the Israeli Sanhedrin for President Trump to visit the Temple Mount when he is in Israel,”

Written by | December 7, 2016 | 0
By Victor Ochieng Black people are generally very religious. They register high numbers in churches. This can also be drawn from the high number of Black celebrities who thank God whenever they win awards, acknowledging that God has a hand in their success. This is why atheism isn’t so much linked to the Black community. In reality, however, there are many atheists and non-believer Blacks, including high profile celebrities. Below is a list of some of them: Samuel L. Jackson – He’s among the most famous and top rated Black actors of all time. Jackson is one actor who believes his talent isn’t God-given because, as he puts it, “I work at it. I still learn, I read.” Chris Rock – He ranks among the world’s greatest comedians of all time. Although Rock comes from a Christian

Is A Muslim Registry Really Needed In The U.S.?

Written by | December 7, 2016 | 0
By Victor Ochieng According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the number of hate incidents have risen since Republican Donald Trump won the presidential election. Right from his campaigns, it was clear that he was relying on bigotry and politics of hate to navigate his way to the most powerful office on the planet. It’s a dark day for America! Who could’ve thought that someone in his right mind would vote for Trump, let alone the candidate getting enough votes to win the presidency? Trump openly advocated for a total ban on Muslims setting foot in the U.S. He didn’t rule out the possibility of having a special registry for Americans who adhere to the Muslim faith. Trump openly ridiculed women based on their bodies, and, during the last stretch of his campaign, a recording surfaced

By Victor Ochieng Word on the internet has it that Pastor Jamal Bryant finally popped the “will you marry me?” question to his sweetheart, R&B singer Tweet. And, as expected, Tweet answered in the affirmative. Good for the couple. A lot of great things are happening in Tweet’s life. Her fans waited patiently for her return to the music scene, and when she made a comeback, she came back bigger, releasing her “Charlene” album. She also assisted Solange in her “1 Seat At The Table” album. Another amazing development is that the southern hummingbird found love in 2016 with Pastor Bryant.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Speaks About Systemic Racism And How To Overcome It

Written by | November 30, 2016 | 0
By Victor Ochieng Racism in America is a disease that has robbed many people of opportunities and has even resulted in uncountable loss of lives. Many leaders, government agencies, and non-governmental organizations have made efforts to root out racism from within the American society to no avail. A lot more needs to be done, and different people have their opinions on how best to go about it. During the 2016 Global Leadership Summit, Bishop T.D. Jakes held a discussion with Bill Hybels on systemic racism and the criminal justice system, which has been widely criticized as a corrupt, racist, and biased system that only works against minorities, more so against African Americans. Hybels started by asking Jakes about his view on why not so much is being achieved in spite of spirited efforts

  (Photo: Reuters/Ahmed Saad)Iraqi Christians attend mass at Mar George Chaldean Church in Baghdad, March 1, 2015. Iraqi Christians say they have no intention of leaving the country despite the recent abduction of over 100 Assyrian Christians by the Islamic State. Christians returning home to the Syrian town of Al Qaryatayn have said that even though the Islamic State terror group destroyed the monastery of fourth century saint Mar Elian, his relics survived, and will be restored. “In Mar Elian, we have always hoped to welcome everyone. Mar Elian was really a sign of hope for the Syrian people,” Father Jacques Mourad, a priest who was previously captured by IS, told Prince Charles Decries ‘Unbearable Misery’ of Christians Suffering in Syria “Everything

Institutions like Willow Creek and Houston’s Lakewood Church, each drawing 20,000 or more on a weekend, offer not just a vast, shared attraction but a path that tries to link individuals on a faith-sustaining one-to-one level beyond the crowd, observers and worshipers say.
