Sunday, April 29, Eros Ouranos Thanatos Well, I have some good news, some bad news and some insanely-terrible news. Which do you want to hear first? OK, the good news? The world is being re-paganized at an almost-unimaginably rapid pace. Actually there’s a number of reasons. First of all, I wonder what the bust-up of it means in the grand scheme of things, and what it might be saying about the ever-shifting internecine struggles taking place in the corridors of power. This cult’s shenanigans have been known for a very long time and discussed in major media outlets. So why drop the hammer now? Second of all, I can’t for the life of me figure why anyone found this Keith Reniere schlub so fascinating and why all these C-list starlets found him so alluring.

Overview In the early decades of the first century A. Later in the early fourth century, the Roman Emperor Constantine announced his own conversion and ended the persecution of Christians. The acceptance of Christianity raised questions about the proper relationship between religion and politics. Recommended Readings Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 28 Christianity proposed a radical community consisting of heretofore neglected groups such as women, socially unacceptable types such as tax collectors, children, and slaves.
None of these groups would have endeared the Christian message to the Greco-Roman cultural context. Nonetheless, Christianity seemed to have a wide appeal and spread quite rapidly; however, not without significant opposition.
This is pretty much why the NXIVM cult fascinates me. Actually there’s a number of reasons. First of all, I wonder what the bust-up of it means in the grand scheme of things, and what it might be saying about the ever-shifting internecine struggles taking place in the corridors of power.
Dark, painful memories can be put away to be forgotten. Until one day they all flood back in horrible detail. When television producers approached Alan Cumming to appear on a popular celebrity genealogy show, he hoped to solve the mystery of his maternal grandfather’s disappearance that had long cast a shadow over his family. But this was not the only mystery laid before Alan. Alan grew up in the grip of a man who held his family hostage, someone who meted out violence with a frightening ease, who waged a silent war with himself that sometimes spilled over onto everyone around him.
He had a secret he had to share, one that would shock his son to his very core and set into motion a journey that would change Alan’s life forever. With ribald humor, wit, and incredible insight, Alan seamlessly moves back and forth in time, integrating stories from his childhood in Scotland and his experiences today as the celebrated actor of film, television, and stage.

December 11, at 7: So I attempt to get the contact info for CS to simply pay them more so I can have my book in a reasonable amount of time. I restart my computer and try again…finally after about 6 or 7 tries I manage to click on the phone contact tab in the split second before the crash message pops up and get the magical number. I tell him that the shipping is sub-par and I want to pay for standard shipping to get the book this week. Apparently he had about as much power to cancel or change the order as I do which is to say he had none.
It seems convenient that their CS contact page crashes right around the holiday shopping season, but I am probably just being a conspiracy theorist.

Herescope Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: Pastor Larry DeBruyn Readers of the Herescope blog know the late Larry DeBruyn as a scholarly writer of helpful books and articles discerning truth from error. But he was first and foremost a pastor, a gifted shepherd, who sincerely cared about people and actively ministered to them in their day-to-day lives.
In fact, he once said that the ministry of discernment must arise from rugged ministry done in the trenches of real life with real people, not sitting at a computer in an office. Below is the testimony of his work in the trenches with one of his parishioners, Gaylene Goodroad, who spoke at his memorial service: Retain the standard of sound words which you have heard from me, in the faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.
Guard, through the Holy Spirit who dwells in us, the treasure which has been entrusted to you. As it happened, I had read a blurb on the Herescope blog about his book, Church on the Rise, that I wanted to read. When I contacted his church to inquire about getting a copy, I discovered that it was only a minute ride from my home, so I arranged to pick up a copy of the book in person from Debbie, his faithful church assistant.
Coming out of the church office that afternoon, my new book tucked under my arm, I literally ran into Pastor Larry walking down the hallway. He invited me to chat with him for a few minutes, but the minutes turned into almost two hours.

Although it may have started with the Egyptians or Mesopotamians, the first typology of temperament is credited to an Ancient Greek physician named Hippocrates who developed a model of personality types called The Four Humors. Typology of temperament is as old as mythology, so it is probably no coincidence that both were popularized by the Ancient Greeks.
A myth, by its definition, explains how the world came to be through a story where the main characters are gods, supernatural heroes, or extraordinary human beings. In Jungian psychology, archetypes are patterns of thought and images that exist in all cultures and individuals and are unconsciously expressed through art, literature, and other patterns of behavior.

Some of you may have seen that I took a short trip to Tokyo back in October. It’s about time I showed you some pictures from my trip. I lived there from to I still have friends there, and of course deep roots, so I try to get back as often as possible, but this time it had been nine years. I had the great good luck to stay with my friend Kazu, who lives in the heart of the city.
That’s us one day after brunch at a French restaurant in Shibuya. Missing is Fumiko, who recently moved back to the Osaka area, where her family still lives. Kazu took me to visit gorgeous Nezu Shrine, close to his home, on my first day. The torii gates in the opening photo were only a small part of the very carefully kept and beautifully manicured shrine. Tokyo temperatures, like temperatures everywhere, were higher than normal.

Feb 18, · Sam I Am said. You should read Joe McIntyre’s book on Kenyon. He refutes McConnell’s claims about the metaphysical influence on Kenyon. The fact is E.W. Kenyon rejected the views of Christian Science, and argued against them.
In North America he is most often depicted as both taller than his disciples, lean, with long, flowing, light brown hair, fair skin and light-colored eyes. Familiar though this image may be, it is inherently flawed. A person with these features and physical bearing would have looked very different from every one else in the region where Jesus lived and ministered.
He especially blessed Shem and his sons, black but comely, and he gave them the inhabitable earth. He blessed Ham and his sons, black like a raven, and he gave them as an inheritance the coast of the sea. He blessed Japheth and his sons, they entirely white, and he gave them for an inheritance the desert and its fields; these are the inheritances with which he endowed them. Allah made the prophets from them, revealed the Books to them, made them beautiful, gave them a black complexion, and also gave them a black complexion with a light-brownish undertone…The children of Ham settled in the south…Allah gave them a black complexion and gave some of them a black complexion with a light-brownish undertone…The children of Japheth settled in Safoun toward the north…They are light-skinned and very fair-skinned.
According to Flavius Josephus’ recently rediscovered ‘Capture of Jerusalem’ and the other Jewish and Christian sources. Through a meticulous analysis of extant manuscripts, Eisler endeavored to restore the original reading of a first century text that discusses John the Baptist, Jesus and the early Christians. Originally written in Aramaic, a Greek rewriting was published around 72 CE. His texts passed through Christian scribal hands, during which process the texts were no doubt altered: Both his nature and his form were human, for he was a man of simple appearance, mature age, black-skinned melagchrous , short growth, three cubits tall, hunchbacked, prognathous lit.
A short, hunchbacked black-man with a unibrow, short kinky  hair with a part down the middle, and a scanty nappy? That this basic description goes back to Josephus is affirmed by a number of early Christian ecclesiastics, such as Andreas Hierosolymitannus, Archbishop of Crete 8th cent.

After I told him what I thought, he asked me if I would write some of what I said down. On my first day in prison they sent me to the Byrd Unit.

When I was done with them, the guy told me to let my neighbor check them out.
Well, this guy tore some pages out and then sent them back to the owner.

Duration[ edit ] The average duration of courtship varies considerably throughout the world. Furthermore, there is vast individual variation between couples. Courtship may be completely omitted, as in cases of some arranged marriages where the couple do not meet before the wedding. In the United Kingdom , a poll of 3,  engaged or married couples resulted in an average duration between first meeting and accepted proposal of marriage of 2 years and 11 months,   with the women feeling ready to accept at an average of 2 years and 7 months.
The date is fairly casual in most European-influenced cultures, but in some traditional societies, courtship is a highly structured activity, with very specific formal rules. In some societies, the parents or community propose potential partners and then allow limited dating to determine whether the parties are suited. Courtship in the Philippines is one known complex form of courtship. Unlike what is regularly seen in other societies, it takes a far more subdued and indirect approach.
It is common to see the male showing off by sending love letters and love poems, singing romantic songs, and buying gifts for the female. Forbidding experimental and serial courtship and sanctioning only arranged matches is partly a means of guarding the chastity of young people and partly a matter of furthering family interests, which, in such cultures, may be considered more important than individual romantic preferences.
Throughout history, courtship has often included traditions such as exchanging valentines , written correspondence which was facilitated by the creation of the postal service in the nineteenth century , and similar communication-based courting. Dating In the earlier s, young adults were expected to court with the intention of finding a marriage partner, rather than for social reasons. In more traditional forms of Christianity, this concept of courtship has been retained, with John Piper defining courtship and distinguishing this concept from dating, stating that: Courtship always has marriage as its direct goal
