Study: Social distancing doesn’t work

Throughout COVID, governments having been pounding out the propaganda that people need to social distance, separate ourselves from others by at least six feet. Now research by two professors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has concluded social distancing does not work. When it comes to the spread of COVID, it makes no difference if people are six feet a part or 60 feet a part.

500 scientists in US connected with other governments?

The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently issued a warning that there are over 500 scientists working in over 200 research institutions in the US who may have connections with other foreign countries such as China. The warning was issued because many of these individuals are involved in research projects subsidized by the US government and may be sharing research with foreign governments. The Western Journal reports: The announcement was made Thursday by Michael Lauer, the NIH deputy director for extramural research, during a hearing before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions aimed at protecting U.S. biomedical research, the Washington Examiner reported. “I think one big problem, senators, is that the threat is significant,” Lauer said in the hearing. “We have identified over 500 scientists of concern. … Each of these require a tremendous amount of work to figure out what exactly has been happening and to work carefully with the institution to figure out what’s going on.” We’ve seen scientists who have told their American institutions and the NIH that they’re spending 100 percent of their time …

An Eye for Eye is not what it seems

A recent story out of Iran exposes one of the biggest misconceptions that people have about the Old Testament law. The Daily Mail reports that five Iranian men are facing the prospect of having their fingers cut off after being accused of theft. Under the Islamic code, amputation is considered suitable punishment for theft in cases where the stolen goods are not recovered. In this instance, the five are charged with burgling over 22 houses. The International Observatory of Human Rights reports that over the past 20 years, there has been at least 129 instances of finger amputation in the country. And it’s not just fingers, depending on the crime people can even have their hands amputated. In 2015, a horrific story emerged of a ISIS militants in Iraq filling a man full of drugs before using a meat cleaver to cut off his hand. Though we consider this barbaric, many are quick to point out that the Old Testament law has a similar eye for eye punishment system. Where people could have their eyes …

Phoenician woman's unrelenting faith resulted in her daughter's deliverance. Painting: Author unknown

¿Qué significa tener gran fe?

English version: What does it mean to have great faith? A lo largo de los Evangelios, Jesús se refirió a las personas con “gran fe”. Una de ellas era una mujer Fenicia. El incidente registrado en Mateo 15: 21-28  es de gran controversia.   Cuando Jesús habló de sus grandes megas (en griego) fe, Él estaba hablando de una mujer con enormes cantidades de fe. Pero no es por casualidad,  que hay  18 versos después del paseo de Pedro en el agua donde Jesús advirtió a Su Apostol por su “pequeña” fe. ( Mateo 14: 22-32 ). Mateo contrasta deliberadamente la “pequeña’ fe de Pedro con la”gran” fe de una mujer gentil – un ejercicio humillante para cualquier hombre judío que se preciara. Y aquí es donde se pone interesante, porque sólo se puede entender la “gran”‘ fe de la mujer Fenicia a la luz de la  “pequeña” (en ‘oligos’ el griego) la fe de Pedro. En un artículo anterior , hablé de los diversos significados de ” ligos “. Puede referirse a una pequeña cantidad (Santiago 3: 5) o algo más …
