Black UVA Student Beaten by Police

racism

Martese Johnson is black. All reports are alleging that he did not resist the officers’ use of force in any way, and the officers continued to brutalize him while onlookers pleaded with them to stop. A graphic photo taken at the scene is now circulating widely on the internet.

Martese Johnson is a highly involved student at the University of Virginia: an Italian and Media Studies major who plans on going into business, a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity (a historically black frat), a leadership development chair in the Black Student Association; he was also a leader in the major student governing body (the Honor Committee).

No incidents of prejudicial violence on this scale have occurred at the University of Virginia in recent memory, although the racial climate in Charlottesville is what you might expect from a relatively conservative institution founded by Thomas Jefferson. Graduate student Maya Hislop told me, “Black students on grounds are highly familiar with this kind of abuse (denied access to places, checking IDs of black students and not checking IDs of white students), but I do not know that it has ever been this violent.” Read more

Get ready, get ready, get ready. The new generation coming is going to be so confused that ignominy will not exist for untoward behavior. The tares are getting out of control and the wheat must daily be fertilized with the Word of God or be damaged and destroyed by the foolishness of the wicked.

 

SET YOUR AFFECTION

affection

It is important to note that the believer in Jesus must learn how to set their affections. If your affections are not set, you will be like a fish out of water. You will confess and believe God and even pray, but belimited in your ability to effectively live holy. Living holy is God’s design for the believer in Jesus Christ. It is written: “Be holy, because I am holy (1Peter 1:16).”

Setting your affection requires an object or person for which to set it on. For the believer in Jesus Christ, this must be Jesus. To begin the process of setting ones affection you must think about, almost romanticize heavenly things. Be in tune with the brevity of life and understand your eternal life has more weight. When this understanding/revelation becomes more concrete, you will receive a clearer picture of what having Jesus in your life really means.

This affection turns into a love affair that makes being obedient to the wisdom of God easier and easier. You will also see clearer and clearer the reality of the world in which you currently reside. The atmosphere around you will begin to change. Your prayers will take on more power and the things of this world will grow strangely dim. The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life begin to take less and less of your time as you set your affection on things above.

Those things that are below are carnal and lead to a death without hope. Christians are hopeful that in death there is life eternal and full of glory. We cannot die an eternal death, because we already died when we received Jesus in the natural and because we set our affection on him.

Spring Breakers Watched Teen Get Raped

spring breakA Houston, Texas teenager says she was raped while a group of more than two dozen spring break partiers watched and one videotaped the incident.

Although the videomaker says the woman invited the men into her car by dangling her bikini top, mother of the high school student says even if her daughter did lift up her bikini top, she did not deserve to be raped.

“???,” the mother told Good Morning America. Her name is being withheld to protect her daughter’s identity.

Her daughter lifted her bikini top and a young man put his hand in through the car window, but she did not wave the bikini top out the car window as the man who videotaped the incident has claimed, the mother said. Her daughter was just “out to have a good time,” and didn’t realize the trouble that removing her top could cause, her mother said.

No Witnesses Came Forward The incident happened March 13 in Crystal Beach, Texas during spring break. Police are looking for the approximately 25 to 30 people who witnessed the incident. None of the witnesses have come forward and there have been no arrests. Read more

Anything goes when alcohol, drugs, and sexual perversion abound. Rapes double during this time and sex crazed guys hunt for the precious intoxicated/wild girl. Its all about having a good time.

Don’t be drunk with wine, because that will ruin your life. Instead, be filled with the Holy Spirit, – Ephesians 5:18

Shopping Lust

shopping
“Shopping, done to excess, can spin out of control and lead to serious problems, eroding rather than enhancing your quality of life. The more you use shopping as an attempt to fill an inner void, manage your feelings, repair your mood, or pursue a ‘perfect’ image, the more likely it is that you need to take a closer look at what this behavior is costing you.”

Compulsive buying disorder is like any addiction, the shopping addict exhibits these behaviors: loss of control,

increased tolerance, negative consequences, withdrawal symptoms such as preoccupation, denial, lying to spouse and or self, etc.

Online Shopping Addiction

*Identify what the triggers are
*Identify what makes a person want to spend online, whether it’s boredom,
nervousness, or habit
*Setting time and spending limits
*Clear your credit card numbers and customer information from online
shopping accounts so that spending isn’t too 
easy

Frequency/ Intensity of Shopping

*Do you often go on buying binges?
*Do you find yourself spending more time and/or money buying on the Internet,
in catalogues, or on the shopping 
channels than you want to?
*Does money burn a hole in your pocket?

Reasons Why and When

*Do you go shopping because you want to make yourself feel better?
*Do you often buy things because you think they will make  you more like your
ideal image?
*Do you sometimes feel that something inside of you pushes you to shop?
*Do you shop to avoid doing something else in your life?

Ways to Help

*Find comfort and security in Christ.
*Get an accountability partner.
*Find a church family and a group of Godly people to spend time with.
*Pray
*Read and meditate on: 1 John 2:15-17

“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever.”
