From Jewish Christians to Gentiles and origin of Christianity

Bijbelvorser = Bible Researcher

For almost two hundred years after the impalement of Christ, Roman cities are entirely devoid of any trace of early Christians; to date, no one has ever found any object that’s been plausibly connected to them. Some archaeologist and historians think that  many of Jesus’ followers — men and women who lived in the first, second and even third century Roman Mediterranean — simply didn’t want to be found. However it was more because they preferred as brethren and sisters to meet in each others houses and did not see any reason to have special buildings for their meetings.

Some are also surprised there where for almost four hundred years, no manger scenes anywhere in the Roman world, as well as no crucifixes displayed in homes or schools. This simply was because there was no attention to the birth of Christ and the pagan feast of a…

Place for a fifth and sixth house in Christendom

Bijbelvorser = Bible Researcher

It looks like we have come in a time several people are not pleased to feel as if they are shunned by one or more religious groups where they normally would belong to.

In the midst of previous century it started by some non-trinitarian groups who wanted others to know the Holy Name of God. Afraid of such groups like the Jehovah’s Witnesses several churches and publishers did not want to use the name of God any-more and choose for the non-saying “Lord“. By replacing the Tetragrammaton יהוה or Jehovah with “Lord” people could not see the difference between The Most High LordHashem Jehovah and the other Lord יהושע Jeshua the Messiah.

Worse was that those who where for and preached that people should only worshipOne True God, became considered by many not to be Christians, though they are the

A ’70s superstar

“The Partridge Family,” a sitcom about a mother and five children who formed a rock ‘n’ roll band, gave Cassidy a national audience for his music. Cassidy, who played Keith Partridge on the show, captured the spirit of 1970s youth.

His wispy voice and wholesome persona broke out from the small screen. At the time, his fan club reportedly was bigger than those of Elvis Presley and The Beatles.
The singer toured the world singing his hit songs, such as “I Think I Love You,” filling concert halls with screaming teenage girls.
Cassidy has spoken publicly in recent years about his struggles with alcohol. He was arrested for driving under the influence on three separate occasions during a four-year span between 2010 and 2014.
Cassidy, in an interview with CNN in 2014, said his trouble with alcohol was “very humbling and it’s also humiliating.”

BOJANA’S COFFEE & CONFESSIONS TO GO

We’re more often than not burdened by how people perceive us and how we want to be perceived. And to influence the way others see us means we have to be wide awake at all times, that is fully aware of our behavior. So we choose to sweep the dirt under the rug because we either ignore and deny our problems or want to conceal from public view something we find unappealing, humiliating or harmful to our reputation.

However, our unconsciousness is quite a wicked player (read: jerk!), which means there’s often a discrepancy between what we say and do. In other words, our non-verbal communication speaks volumes about us (and who gave you permission, if I may ask?). Our body language is irrefutable evidence of our guilt, if you will, i.e. to sugar coat it (ok, ok, just a little. I do have a sweet tooth, you know), a…

At least 44 crew members were on board, state-run news agency Telam reported Friday.
Crews are searching for the vessel by air and sea near its last known location, navy spokesman Enrique Balbi told reporters.

The vessel had been traveling from far southern Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego archipelago to its home base in Mar del Plata, a coastal city hundreds of miles to the northeast.
“The submarine knows that if it does not have communication with land for this long, it has to surface,” Balbi said.
