Students Create Roofie Alert Nail Polish

A group of students at North Carolina State University are combatting date rape with nail polish. They’ve created Undercover Colors, a line of polishes that help wearers identify if their drinks have been exposed to the date rape drug. The Facebook page for the company states:

With our nail polish, any woman will be empowered to discreetly ensure her safety by simply stirring her drink with her finger. If her nail polish changes color, she’ll know that something is wrong. Through this nail polish and similar technologies, we hope to make potential perpetrators afraid to spike a woman’s drink because there’s now a risk that they can get caught. In effect, we want to shift the fear from the victims to the perpetrators. We are Undercover Colors and we are the first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault…

 Statistics:

The most frequently detected drug in victims of drug-facilitated sexual assault is alcohol. The second most common is marijuana.

About 25% of women report that drugs were a factor in a rape

It is estimated that approximately 75% of all rapes are date or acquaintance rapes.

Wisdom:

Most date rape happens in the devils house (clubs/bars) and consuming his products, so what type of things should you expect at his house? Purity and a sound mind?

Stay out of the devils house and come to God’s house and have peace and liberty.

Contend For The Faith

Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once delivered unto the saints.

For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

And the angels, which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Power of Music

Black and White

The protests in Ferguson, Missouri, have laid bare America’s ongoing racial divide.

One source of that tension is the large financial gap between black and white Americans.

The figures are staggering.

A typical black household has accumulated less than one-tenth of the wealth of a typical white one. And it’s only getting worse.

Over the past 25 years, the wealth gap between blacks and whites has nearly tripled, according to research by Brandeis University.

That’s in large part because home ownership among blacks is so much lower. Housing is often Americans’ greatest asset and a major component of their overall wealth.

Blacks also typically have lower incomes than whites, which also makes it harder for them to save and build wealth. The median income for black households is less than 60% that of white ones.

The Solution: Justice for all people.

Time and chance happens to them all. Whatever gifts or lack thereof you must start with the relationships you’ve been given. Secondly the economic resources and/or privilege and from here you begin making moment by moment choices. 

You choose whether difficulties will make you live in bitterness, revengeful, or fear. 

God has said, he would provide our needs. Our wants may be endless and our ability to consume more and more is a bottomless pit that cannot be filled, but when our heart is directed into the patient waiting for Christ and in the obedience of God’s word we will not be forsaken. This goes for all humans on the planet who put their hope in Jesus.

We may look at statistics and be saddened by the devils winnings, but remember faith without works is dead. God has given his people a difficult responsibility to work their faith.

Remember sin will never garnish you favor with God. He is not blessing those who refuse to repent and keep committing iniquities. Stop the sin. Look to Jesus and move forward. Though man devises his way God will direct his paths. He cannot direct if you’re not moving.

 

 

Power of the Feet

feet, power, foot

For most of us, the feet are used to gain access to all sorts of things within the earth we live. We may use our feet to run down a field or track. We may paddle them in a pool to gain speed in swimming. The feet may be used to run to or from trouble. It is the feet that may be used for good or evil.

When the school bell rings do you use your feet to go to class or use it rather to do evil by cutting class? Do you use your feet to travel to the drug dealer or a so-called friend who is using you for your vehicle? What are you doing with the power of your feet?

You may have been fooled into thinking your feet cannot sin. You may have been fooled into believing the feet have no power, but you would be wrong. All kinds of power reside in the feet. As with other body parts it may be used to bring God glory or fulfill the dream of the kingdom of darkness. Who will you hand your feet over to? Jesus or Satan?

Will you walk into the den called clubs and be played by demons? Will you run into a store and remove contents you did not pay for? Will you use your feet to jump off a building to your death or run into the middle of traffic? What commands are you giving your feet?

Command your feet today to walk in paths of righteousness. Command your feet today to be shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Command your feet to walk into the church and receive a word from the Lord. Take your feet and ask God to anoint them. Ask Jesus to give your feet a good purpose and walk always in a good thing.
