School Gives Satanic Temple Permission To Teach Children In After School Club

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.

But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their’s also was.

10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,

11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;

15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Timothy 3:1-17King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

Children given opportunity to attend the Satanic club’s inaugural meeting.

The Satanic Temple has been granted permission by a school in Portland, Oregon, to set up an after-school programme for young pupils. The Sacramento Elementary School, which educates pupils between 5 and 10 years old, will be given the opportunity to attend the Satanic club’s inaugural meeting.Finn Rezz, who is the main spokesperson for Satanic Temple, said that the club would focus on “on science and rational thinking,” whilst providing an alternative voice to Christianity and Bible-centred “Good News Club”. According to the Satanic Temple’s ‘After School Satan Club’ website, it says it has launched after-school clubs to provide an alternative to evangelical Christian organizations focused on the teachings of Jesus

“Currently, the number of After School Satan Clubs (ASSC) is limited, as the program is very new,” the Temple explains.“However, ASSC has generated a massive wave of interest immediately upon being announced.

According to The Telegraph: “Across the nation, parents are concerned about encroachments by proselytizing evangelicals in their public schools, and are eager to establish the presence of a contrasting voice that helps children to understand that one doesn’t need to submit to superstition in order to be a good person. “Our goal, ultimately, is to place an ASSC in every school where the Good News Clubs, or other proselytizing religious groups, have established a presence.”

Sacramento Elementary is the second school in Oregon to get an After School Satan Club. The first, Nehalem Elementary School, was set up earlier this year.

Paul Erlebach, Superintendent of the Neah-Kah-Nie School District, issued a statement at the time saying: “The NKN School District recognizes that questions of religious belief and discussion of religious organizations can create strong feelings, and it is important to note that our district does not promote any particular religion. “In fact, our district policies explicitly state that the Board ‘recognizes that the public schools, as agents of the government, must remain neutral toward religion and must be careful not to prefer one religion above another.’ “Students may not participate in after-school activities in district facilities or be released during school hours to participate in an outside club or organization without parental permission.” (Click to Source)

Returning to God

by John Parsons
Hebrew for Christians

maxresdefault

The theme of the High Holy Days is teshuvah (הָ ובּשְּ ֹח ,(a Hebrew word often
translated as “repentance,” though more accurately understood as turning back
(shuv) to God. In spiritual terms, teshuvah may be regarded as a practical
turning away from evil and a turning toward the good, though it is simpler to
regard turning to God as the means by which we turn away from evil. Indeed,
the Greek word translated repentance (meta´noia) means going beyond our
habitual thinking, changing our mind, and learning to see from a radically
new perspective. As we look to God, we begin to see that “everything is
new” (2 Cor. 5:17).

Teshuvah (repentance) believes that the kindness of God can give life to our
dead hearts, and therefore it is first of all a matter of faith, trusting God to
perform the miracle for us. However, even though it is a great gift from Heaven,
repentance requires honesty and acknowledgment of the truth. We must confess
our inner poverty, our neediness, and mourn the loss and harm caused by our
sin (Matt. 5:1–12). Repentance turns away from attempts to defend or justify
ourselves and instead turns to God to heal our separation from Him (Rom. 8:3–4).

Teshuvah buries our old nature when we are made into a new creation.
Yeshua illustrated the heart behind teshuvah in the story of the “prodigal son”
(Luke 15:11–32). After squandering his inheritance from his father, the wayward
son returned home, full of shame and self-reproach. “But while he was still
a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he
ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.” The father ordered
a celebratory meal in honor of his son’s homecoming. When the older brother
objected, the father said, “We had to celebrate and be glad, for your brother
was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found.”

This parable reveals that teshuvah ultimately means returning to the compassionate
arms of your Heavenly Father. God sees you while you are still “a long way
off” (Rom. 5:8). He runs to you with affection when you begin to turn your heart
toward Him. Indeed, God’s compassion is so great that He willingly embraces
the shame of your sins and adorns you with “a fine robe, a ring, and sandals.”
Your Heavenly Father even slaughters the “fatted calf” (Yeshua) so that a meal celebrating your life may be served. Amen. Teshuvah is a gift from God and the very reason that we celebrate the High Holidays.

Torah Commentary – Re’eh (See) – See, Perceive, or Selah? SCRIPTURES FOR August 11, 2017

Torah Commentary

Re’eh (See)

 

mosesandstone

Deuteronomy 11:26-16:17
Isaiah 54:11-55:5
1 Corinthians 5:9-13
1 John 4:1-6
See, Perceive, or Selah?
The title of this Torah portion is translated very simply with the word, “see.” This small simple word can be taken for granted by some, but let us do something different.
“Seeing,” for the vast majority of people, is the first thing we do every morning. We wake up, open our eyes to see, or depending on our optical ability, at least look at the images our eyes are allowing our brains to discern. Or said another way, we fumble around the nightstand until we find our glasses!
In Hebrew, the word for see is re’eh. Re’eh has the meaning of looking at something with our eyes, but that is not the context in how it’s being used here. The Hebrew meaning is, “to perceive and consider something so as to bring forth discernment.” Let me expound with the following example.
Most of us wake up in the morning and walk (wobble!) to the bathroom to begin the daily routine of making ourselves presentable before leaving home. Many of us “see” in the mirror the proverbial bed-head-look with hair going every direction. As we make sense of the new style our pillow created, we might find a few gray hairs that certainly could not have been there the day before! Gasp!
How we handle these sneaky little gray hairs is what brings forth my point.
Will we make a mental note of the location of these sly little hairs to pluck them out, hide them with a new hairstyle, or run to the local Wal-Mart to grab a bottle of hair color?
Are these little gray hairs a frightful unwanted sight, or do they bring us to a place of introspection?
Do we just “see” the gray hair, or do we look deeper to evaluate the Scriptural meaning behind gray hair and how it’s interpreted?
Do we perceive what is happening in our lives regarding our maturity and reflect on decisions we’re making?
Well, according to Scripture, gray hair is a sign for us to ponder-but only if we’ve been learning the life-lessons Yah has been giving us, rather than traveling around the same mountain of mistakes. In short, are you and I gaining wisdom through maturity-or are we just going gray? Our answer is important, so let’s not rush through the pondering process.
There is another word in Scripture which brings deeper meaning to my thoughts, the word selah. The word is found 71 times in Psalms, and 3 times in Habakkuk 3. Selah is defined as an obscure word which is a musical note. The true meaning, though, is found in its root which is about weighing balances. My favorite definition is: “To weigh a thought or action in light of eternity.”
Let’s go back to the gray hair for a moment. When we begin to see them appear, how have we responded in the past? Did we just “look” at them, ignore them, cover them up? Or have we allowed them to help us perceive where we are in life regarding our actions, as well as the consequences we’re producing for ourselves and others? If the former, would it not be healthier to permit them to be a message of “selah” in our lives to ponder our decisions in light of eternity? Welcome to tomorrow’s mirror!
This Torah portion, as well as most of Deuteronomy, relates to how we will live our lives according to the mitzvot of Elohim. We have the opportunity to assess which mountain we will stand with-G’rizim or Eival, Blessing or Curse. Deuteronomy solidifies where HaShem has put His Name. Will we agree with Him, or will we try to insert His name onto the real estate we select? This important book evaluates how we treat what He has entrusted to us-especially our relationships with others. It includes what we do with our time, energy, and resources in observing His Feasts, as well as giving back a portion of what He has given us.
In light of personal reflection, the summarized questions being asked this week are:Are we just seeing the words, or are we discerning the spirit of the words?
Are we only looking in the dim light of today’s walk, or are we perceiving in the bright light of our eternal walk?
On a final note, let us remember this important fact: we ARE able to make the choice to see, perceive, or selah because of His grace shown to us. Or said in the words of a friend, “Grace is not that He chooses us; but rather, grace is His giving us the power to choose Him.”
Selah!   (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Matthew 4:7 – August 11, 2018

Matthew 4:1-25

book-pages-2021302_960_720

Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.

And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.

And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,

And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;

And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.

12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;

13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthalim:

14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;

16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

18 And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

21 And going on from thence, he saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them.

22 And they immediately left the ship and their father, and followed him.

23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people.

24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.

25 And there followed him great multitudes of people from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem, and from Judaea, and from beyond Jordan. (Matthew 4:1-25) King James Version (KJV) Public Domain

A Mysterious, Powerful Force Is Flinging Radio Waves at Us from Deep Space

By Brandon Specktor, Senior Writer | 

Canada’s CHIME radio telescope (seen at night here) recently detected a rare, low-frequency burst of energy from deep in the universe. Astronomers are eagerly searching for an explanation.

Our universe is teeming with invisible light. Beyond the visible spectrum, space is a colorful mess of radio signals and microwaves fired off by flaring “suns,” collapsing stars, crackling magnetic fields, roiling dust clouds and seething black holes.

Then, there’s the light nobody understands — mysterious, ultrastrong sparks of energy zipping billions of light-years across the universe from unknown origins, for unknown reasons.

Puzzling pulses like these are sometimes called fast radio bursts (FRBs), because they may last just a few milliseconds. On the morning of July 25, one such burst of mysterious energy whizzed past a new array of radio telescopes nestled in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada, registering one of the rarest radio frequencies ever detected. [7 Everyday Things That Happen Strangely in Space]

According to a statement released in The Astronomer’s Telegram (a bulletin board of astronomical observations posted by accredited scientists), the mystery signal — named FRB 180725A after the year, month and day it was detected — transmitted in frequencies as low as 580 megahertz, nearly 200 MHz lower than any other FRBs ever detected.

“These events have occurred during both the day and night, and their arrival times are not correlated with known on-site activities or other known sources,” wrote Patrick Boyle, author of the Astronomer’s Telegram report and a project manager for the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) — the radio telescope that detected the strange new signature.

The pulse’s fast, low frequency suggests that the blast was extremely bright and originated from an insanely powerful source somewhere in the cosmos. Studying the peculiar signal could give astronomers better clues as to how these extragalactic radio waves form and where they’re coming from.

“Fast radio bursts are exceedingly bright given their short duration and origin at great distances, and we haven’t identified a possible natural source with any confidence,” Avi Loeb, a scientist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics who was not involved in the discovery, said last year in a statement related to new research on these bursts.

He added that an “artificial origin” of the signals (i.e., extraterrestrial intelligence) is worth considering. Other possible origins include supernovas (exploding stars), supermassive black holes or various other sources of mighty electromagnetic radiation, such as pulsars.

FRBs remain an utter mystery to astronomers and routinely draw the curiosity of alien hunters. The signals are, by nature, extremely brief and travel exceedingly far across space; pinpointing a precise source of such elusive pulses is no easy feat. On top of this, only about 40 or so FRBs have been detected on Earth since they were first discovered in 2007, so research on them remains sparse.

But despite FRBs’ relative rarity in astronomy, they are probably a regular cosmic occurrence, Christopher Conselice, a professor of astrophysics at the University of Nottingham who was not involved in the discovery, told The Daily Mail. FRBs may even reach our planet thousands of times a day, Conselice said; we just haven’t built enough tools to detect them all yet.

The latest mystery signal was detected by CHIME, a state-of-the-art radio telescope that looks like a skateboarder’s half-pipe in the mountains of British Columbia. CHIME was designed to detect ancient radio waves sent out when the universe was just a toddler, some 6 billion to 11 billion years ago. Though it has been in operation for only about a year, it has already detected several noteworthy FRBs, including several more low-frequency signals that followed shortly after the noteworthy FRB 180725A last week.

Demi Lovato Reportedly Suffering Complications 6 Days After Apparent Overdose

By JOHN CONNOR COULSTON 

636680455949218166-ap-people-demi-lovato

Demi Lovato is still in the hospital after suffering from an overdose on Tuesday.

Despite being in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Califoria, for six days, the “Sorry Not Sorry” singer has not been discharged due to various “complications,” according to TMZ.

The outlet’s sources, who are said to have “firsthand” knowledge of Lovato’s treatment, say she has a high fever, bad nausea and other ailments. TMZ characterized her as still being “very, very sick.”

There is no word on when Lovato will be discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but she is still expected to recover.

“She is under the care of medical experts and is expected to make a full recovery,” a source told the outlet.

Once Lovato is discharged, she is expected to head straight to a rehabilitation facility. Her family have allegedly been “making plans” for Lovato’s treatment, which comes after Lovato’s streak of sobriety ended earlier in 2018.

“Demi is recovering and her loved ones are so incredibly thankful she has pulled through. They know how lucky she is to be alive and are relieved she’s getting another chance,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “She is a fighter and has beat this in the past, so they know she can live a clean and sober life again. Her mother is by her side,” the source continued.

What caused Lovato’s overdose is not yet known. Lovato reportedly refused to tell medical professional what substance she was on at the time of her hospitalization. Unverified reports have claimed either heroin or a methamphetamine caused the overdose.

Fans have also been looking for a connected party to blame for Lovato’s situation, and her friend/backup dancer, Dani Vitale, has been accused the most. However, Vitale took to Instagram on Sunday night to clear up her involvement in the incident.

“I was not with Demi when the incident happened, but I am with her now, and will continue to be because she means the world to me just as she does to all of you,” Vitale wrote. “Like all of you, I have nothing but love in my heart for her. There is no need for negativity towards the ones who care about Demi at this time. There is too much of it in this world as it is.”

No other updates on Lovato’s condition are available at this time. (Click to Source)
