Sunday Devotional: ‘Follow Me’

1 Corinthians 15:1-11

I am reminding you, brothers and sisters,
of the gospel I preached to you,
which you indeed received and in which you also stand.
Through it you are also being saved,
if you hold fast to the word I preached to you,
unless you believed in vain.
For I handed on to you as of first importance what I also received:
that Christ died for our sins
in accordance with the Scriptures;
that he was buried;
that he was raised on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures;
that he appeared to Cephas, then to the Twelve.
After that, Christ appeared to more
than five hundred brothers at once,
most of whom are still living,
though some have fallen asleep.
After that he appeared to James,
then to all the apostles.
Last of all, as to one born abnormally,
he appeared to me.
For I am the least of the apostles,
not fit to be called an apostle,
because I persecuted the church of God.
But by the grace of God I am what I am,
and his grace to me has not been ineffective.
Indeed, I have toiled harder than all of them;
not I, however, but the grace of God that is with me.
Therefore, whether it be I or they,
so we preach and so you believed.

harden not your hearts

Concerning what St. Paul said in the passage above from 1 Corinthians 15, “in accordance with the Scriptures,” please see “The Old Testament foretold the Coming of Christ”.

May the joy and peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you!

Former U.S. Department of Education Arne Duncan signs with Creative Artists Agency

About a month after stepping down as U.S. secretary of education, Arne Duncan has signed with CAA in all areas, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

During his seven-year tenure (one of the longest in President Barack Obama’s Cabinet and the longest-serving education secretary in American history), Duncan’s accomplishments included implementing the stimulus act’s $100 billion education fund, which saved or created approximately 275,000 jobs*, increased Pell Grants and established reform programs such as Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation.

CAA is expected to negotiate book and speaking deals and identify new business opportunities for Duncan, who served as CEO of Chicago Public Schools before being appointed to Obama’s administration in January 2009.

*So CAA is touting that statistic in their promotion of Arne? That works out to $363,636 spent per “creating” or “saving” a job (if you even believe that number is accurate to begin with). Only in government and liberal la-la-land could one believe that number is something to be proud of.

Jughead Jones out of the closet…Archie Comics brands him asexual

So glad I’ve been done reading Archie comics for quite some time…

The Jughead as you may remember...

The Jughead as you may remember…

All of the years of Jughead’s love for food since the inception of Archie Comics appear to have finally meant something, as the writers of the current series have announced he is asexual in a newly released issue.

According to Fox News, the writers of the current series of Archies, Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson, made the announcement at last year’s Comic Con in New York, according to Catch News. The revelation takes place in Jughead No. 4, which will be released on Wednesday. Archie Comics gave some preview pages to ComicBookResources.com, which posted them Tuesday.

“My view of Jughead is, over the 75 years of his existence, there have been sporadic moments where he has dabbled in the ladies, but historically he has been portrayed as asexual,” Zdarsky said, according to Catch News.

“They just didn’t have a label for it, so they just called him a woman-hater. But he’s not a misogynist, he just watches his cohorts lose their minds with hormones… I think something like asexuality is underrepresented, and since we have a character who was asexual before people had the word for it, I’m continuing to write him that way,” he said.

Throughout the series, Jughead has had several girlfriends while at Riverdale High, including dating Big Ethel and January McAndrews, to sharing his love for food with Debbi.

  • 5 in Mexico

Algiers-to-Paris plane turned around because enraged man urinated on fellow passenger

Here’s another item for your “End of Civilization” folder.

Chris Kitching reports for the Daily Mail, Feb. 9, 2016, that yesterday afternoon, Air Meditarranee Flight ML2673, en route from Algiers to Paris, was forced to divert to Lyon when a passenger urinated on another traveler, sparking a massive brawl on board.

Flight ML2673 was halfway through its 90-minute journey when one of its 166 passengers, who at some point took off his shirt, went into a rage because he wasn’t allowed to smoke or drink alcohol on board. So he peed on a fellow passenger.

Passengers described a scene of chaos as the plane’s crew fought with the unnamed shirtless man, eventually overpowering and pinning him down. The man was then detained by flight attendants.

For safety reasons the pilot decided to land the Airbus A321 at Lyon’s international airport, where police escorted off the aircraft pee-man and a second man who was involved in the fight. The plane eventually took off again and passengers arrived at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport three hours behind schedule.

The flight had originated in Algiers, the capital of Algeria — a Sunni-Muslim country in North Africa with a population of 40.4 million, 99% of whom are Arab-Berber. So draw your conclusion as to the ethnic/religious identity of pee-man. I put my money on Muslim!

man who peed on passenger held down

Even more bizarre is the fact that similar disturbances have occurred in the recent past.

Jeff RubinIn September 2015, 27-year-old Jeff Rubin was arrested at Portland International Airport in Oregon after he allegedly urinated on fellow passengers on a JetBlue flight from Anchorage, Alaska.

Rubin, who had been sleeping for most of the flight, stood up and began urinating through the space between the seats in front of him. Then he lost his balance and fell backwards, spraying urine on other passengers, seats and luggage. Rubin was charged with second-degree criminal mischief and offensive littering.

Gérard_Depardieu_Cannes_2015In 2011, French actor Gérard Depardieu was kicked off a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin after he urinated in the aisle while the plane was taxiing to a runway.

Depardieu needed to use the toilet, but was told he would have to wait until the plane was airborne and the seat belt sign was turned off. The actor responded by leaving his seat and peeing in the aisle. The plane promptly returned to the gate and Depardieu was ordered to disembark.
