Ziua Reformei

Astazi se implinesc 491 de ani din momentul in care Martin Luther a pus pe usa catedralei din Wittenberg cele 95 de teze ale sale.
Ce stiu mai putini…
Cu o luna mai inainte el redactase … 97 de teze… mai teologice in continut si exprimare decat ultimele.
Ambele redactari cautau sa mentina aprins interesul pentru discutiile pe care el le incepuse pe tema justificarii prin credinta, prin har – mai ales impotriva indulgentelor se axa el si a autoritatii papale.

Cel mai vechi text ebraic

Reuters anunta ca arheologi de la Hebrew University au descoperit in Israel, aproape de locul unde se crede ca David L-a invins pe Goliat, cele mai vechi texte in limba ebraica.

Textele, a caror descifrare inca nu este definitivata – cateva randuri inscriptionate pe  ceva vase de lut, contin cuvinte cum ar fi  ‘judecator’  , ‘rege’,  ‘sclav’ etc.

Se pare ca vechimea acestor texte este de aproximativ 3000 de ani, intr-o perioada cand se pare ca exista un guvern central si un rege puternic (poate David).

Textul are importanta atat pentru studiul evolutiei lingvistice cat si pentru sustinerea unor puncte de vedere politice care privesc apartenenta Ierusalimului, nu departe de locul arheologic, la statul Israel- si cel antic si cel de acum…
De asemenea textul si situl arheologic ar confirma acuratetea Bibliei in descrierea unor evenimente si situatii istorice…

Sunt alti cercetatori care nu se grabesc sa declare textul  ca fiind  ‘ebraica’ ci doar  un limbaj ‘protocanaanic’

Cercetarile ulterioare vor aduce mai multa lumina asupra acestor probleme.

The worst of all times is the best of all times for missions.

„The worst of all times is the best of all times for missions.

1. During an economic downturn we are more dependent on God. That is the most fertile soil for creating missionaries.
2. During an economic downturn unreached people around the world do not expect you to come, but to look out for yourself. So they may more likely see your risk as love rather than exploitation.
3. During an economic downturn those who need Christ around the world may be less secure in earthly things and more ready to hear about eternal life.
4. During an economic downturn people at home may be wakened to the brevity of life and the fragility of material things, and so may become more generous not less. And when they give under these circumstances, it will make Christ look all the more like the all-satisfying Treasure that he is.” John Piper

Scurte reflectii

Ce invat din campaniile electorale:

Cand problemele economice devin mai importante decat aspectele morale ,

Cand ceea ce mananc este mai important decat aspectele spirituale,

Cand confortul meu personal este mai presus de binele comunitatii,

Cand electoratul este mai important decat Dumnezeu,

Cand pamantul este mai presus de ceruri,

atunci… suntem cu un pas mai aproape de animale…

O noua ordine mondiala (finaciara)

„World leaders will meet to „strengthen and modernize our nations’ financial systems” to avoid another crisis like the one that has thrown the international economy into turmoil, U.S. President George W. Bush said Saturday”
…”As we make the regulatory institutional changes necessary to avoid a repeat of this crisis, it is essential that we preserve the foundations of democratic capitalism — commitment to free markets, free enterprise and free trade,” Bush said.”

…Sarkozy said the G8 meeting should produce „a new capitalism.” On Saturday, he said the problem is international and therefore needs an international solution.

Barosso said „we need a new global financial order.”

…”There is no freedom [in capitalism] without a minimum of regulation and supervision,” the French president said before leaving the three-day Francophonie meeting early for his trip to the U.S.

Harper said a „new infrastructure” is needed in the world of globalization.

„It’s not to say capitalism is flawed — it’s to say that governments have a responsibility to create a better infrastructure for the establishment of markets internationally,” he said.

Max Lucados prayer for the Tough Times

Rugaciune pentru vremuri grele

You Have Our Attention, Lord – o varianta (Nota mea)
A prayer by Max Lucado – October 2008

Our friends lost their house
The co-worker lost her job
The couple next door lost their retirement
It seems that everyone is losing their footing

This scares us. This bailout with billions.
These rumblings of depression.
These headlines: ominous, thunderous –
“Going Broke!” “Going Down!” “Going Under!” “What’s Next?”

What is next?

We’re listening. And we’re admitting: You were right.

You told us this would happen.
You shot straight about loving stuff and worshipping money.
Greed will break your heart, You warned.
Money will love you and leave you.
Don’t put your hope in riches that are so uncertain.

You were right. Money is a fickle lover and we just got dumped.

We were wrong to spend what we didn’t have.
Wrong to neglect prayer and ignore the poor.
Wrong to think we ever earned a dime. We didn’t. You gave it. And now, tell us Father, are You taking it?

We’re listening. And we’re praying.
Could you make something good out of this mess?

Of course You can. You always have.
You led slaves out of slavery,
Built temples out of ruins,
Turned stormy waves into a glassy pond and water into sweet wine.
This disorder awaits your order. So do we.

Through Christ,

God will always give what is right to His people who cry to Him night and day, and He will not be slow to answer them. (Luke 18:7 NCV)
