The wicked flee when no one is pursuing them

This surveillance video taken November 13, 2014 of an individual skulking in the backyard of a home is about as close as you will get to seeing Proverbs 28:1 in action:

The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,
But the righteous are bold as a lion. (NASV)

Was the Dome on the Rock originally built for the Jews?

The Dome of the Rock has dominated the Jerusalem landscape for centuries. The Muslims use the Dome, built on the Temple mount between 689 – 691 AD, as a mosque. However, at the time of its construction, it was actually patterned off Byzantine churches in the area and evidence suggests it was originally intended as a Jewish building, not a Muslim one.

The Dome, which is maintained by the Jordan government, is probably the most recognizable building in Jerusalem. Though Muslims allow limited visits to the Dome, they do not allow any type of religious expression to take place, other than Islam. As a result,  Jews have taken to praying at the wall. (more…)

[by Dean Smith] A petition has been launched on change.org to have The Learning Channel (TLC) cancel the Duggar’s popular reality show “19 Kids and Counting.”

The show, which started in 2008, features the daily struggles of a Christian family: parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children (9 girls and 10 boys). Since the show started, three of the children have married, but they and their families still make appearances.

The petition was launched after Michelle Duggar opposed a law being considered in Fayetteville, Arkansas  that would allow biological males to use girls’ washrooms, locker rooms and showers. It is similar to a widely criticized law passed in Houston this past June that allows transgender men or women to use facilities of the opposite sex. Critics say such ordinances give sexual predators access to female facilities. (more…)

[by Dean Smith] In 2013, the State of Maryland in the USA passed a controversial law that taxed homes, businesses and churches for any run off water caused by their roofs, parking lots, driveways and sidewalks. Called the “rainwater remediation fee’ or more commonly the “rain tax,” it has proven extremely unpopular.

Many suggest this tax helped elect Republican Larry Hogan as state governor in November 2014. Hogan who will take power on January 21, 2015 promised to repeal the tax if elected.

Meanwhile, Maryland’s Prince George County said it’s willing to exempt church from paying this tax — about $744 a year on average — if they are willing to preach an environmental, green gospel.

When it comes to worry and stress: Women lead the way

Do you suffer from self-imposed stress?

Do you suffer from self-imposed stress?

[by Dean Smith] A poll commissioned by Kalms Herbal discovered that 20% of women feel stressed on a daily basis as they try to manage work and home life.

The survey asked 2000 people from Britain aged 25 to 50 how stressed they were, what caused it and how they dealt with stress. The study had one major conclusion: on almost every front women feel stress more than men.

The survey found: (more…)

[by Dean Smith] On Tuesday (November 18, 2014), the world was stunned to hear about the attack on a Jerusalem synagogue by two Palestinian cousins that left five people dead and seven injured. Three of the dead were Americans and one was from Britain. The fifth was a policeman responding to the attack.

The two men — Ghassan and Oday Abu Jamal — involved in the brutal assault, lived in East Jerusalem. They entered the synagogue during morning prayers and though people tried to defend themselves, they had little chance against the terrorists armed with meat cleavers and a gun. (more…)
