as lambs led now to slaughter

In China, cultural views impede organ donation


Christopher Bodeen
The Boston Globe (AP)

"Chinese have traditionally held that a person’s body should be interred intact, and while such attitudes are gradually changing, they remain strong among older Chinese. At the same time, China is cutting down on its reliance on executed prisoners for organs — a practice that Huang called ‘‘profit-driven, unethical, and violating human rights.’’ Critics have long claimed that standard safeguards were often ignored in the case of obtaining organs from prisoners who may have been pressured to donate."

WHY IT MATTERS
follow the money
culture of death
medical realities about death and organ transplant not publicized
changing definitions of death to accommodate more organ donations

YOU ARE BEING PLAYED 101
Watch for use of 'cultural' and 'traditionally held' and 'older' in the above section of the report. These are words quietly crafted to recreate culture and tradition as both transient matters and not capable of being set into larger picture (think universal template) that supercedes the new.

Cellular memory is built-in to the creation and is not being connected to organ 'harvesting' and transplant. That is the least of the necessary knowledge not being presented.

Death is being redefined to allow organs to be removed at an earlier time. The very use of the word, 'harvest' plays us: these are human beings whose death is being hastened so that living organs can be taken from them and placed in another human being's body. Not produce for harvest!

It is the imperative that Christians know exactly what is involved in organ donation and transplant. Over the course of transforming the culture in order to create this industry, the definition of 'death' is being reframed, and moved back.

Organs are not taken from dead bodies.

It is the imperative that Christians recognize the words and concepts being bandied about in the media to recraft and redirect our thought in this matter.

A culture of something perhaps worse than death and greed is driving the hour.

as homosexual rights take over the world

Gay rights cases could trail Obama in Africa


Julie Pace

31 May 2013

"Homosexuality is considered a criminal offense in many African nations, including Senegal and Tanzania, two of the countries Obama will visit. South Africa, the third country on the president's itinerary, has broad protections for homosexuals and is the only African country to legalize gay marriage."

Gay Rights Advocates Aren't Finished With The Boy Scouts


Paul R. Stanley, Political Opinion Editor
Christian Post
May 29, 2013

"If Christians do not awaken from their slumbered hibernation and take a more proactive stance, then the next gay-rights tornado will sweep through another cultural icon borne of a biblical worldview with barely a whimper from Christians. So goes the Boy Scouts of America."

COMMENTARY
Concerned readers can begin study with Rev. 9:11, which links the Hebrew "Destroyer" with the Greek Apollyon. Where Wikipedeia allows that the Greek term Apollyon is the active participle of the Greek verb that means 'to destroy,' it does not allow that the term is used as a name in classical Greek texts.

However, in an article on the Greek god Apollo, Wikipedia documents, "the Greeks most often associated Apollo's name with the Greek verb ἀπόλλυμι (apollymi), "to destroy"."

Readers should note that what primarily differentiates Apollyon from Apollo is the addition of the [Anglicized] "y," which appears in the Greek verb and in the Apocalypse, but not in the Greek god Apollo. As the above paragraph clarifies, loss of the 'y' from the verb to the noun form does not remove a 'caveat lector' expressed in Rev 9:11 to the faithful concerning the Greek god.

In addition to being regarded as the god of light (think Lucifer), Apollo had various epithets [Wiki, ibid], which include giver/bringer of light, and wolf (think Beast).

The god was also bi-sexual. John used what we regard as the Greek myths in at least one other portion of the Apocalypse, so connecting the dots into subtle pointers is quite within what the text allows.

Should a reader fall to the delusion that Jesus Christ is not the same yesterday, today and forever, clues do abound in Scripture that remain the straight line that has been and will remain the moral encoding of the created universe.

As the entire world falls to the homosexual agenda, a stage is set. As that stage is set, ability to stand against what the agenda brings, not only to the faith, but to the free exercise of that faith, lessens and soon will be eliminated completely.

Because of the agenda behind the agenda, we should all fear what is coming across the horizon [a play on 'homo-phobia'].

Flesh-eating bacteria appears in Vietnam

"Since 2009, the hospital has received dozens of cases of sepsis due to Aeromonas hydropila bacteria. The bacteria quickly cause necrosis so they are called "flesh eating bacteria".

Recently the United States also discovered patients with the flesh-eating bacterial. Some of them had their limbs amputated or even died. The disease makes people panic.

Dr. Nguyen Hong Ha, Deputy Director of the Central Tropical Disease Hospital, said the cases in Vietnam showed typical characteristics of necrotic neck, chest, arms and legs but this is not the disease in many patients in the United States."

"Blue is the Warmest Colour, a French drama about a lesbian love affair, took home the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival Sunday, marking the first time that a movie based on a comic book has won the prestigious Palme d'Or. Written and directed by Abdellatif Kechiche, the film stars Adèle Exarchopoulos as a 15-year-old girl who falls in love with a woman named Emma, played by Léa Seydoux. The film has received largely glowing reviews from critics, as well as a fair bit of controversy, due to its reportedly explicit sex scenes."
