• First fruits September 26 And not only this, but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, … groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption … the redemption of our body. Romans 8:23 Listen to today's Devotional

    First fruits are the preview of an entire crop. For example, if you grow corn and the first ears harvested are delicious, then you know you have an outstanding crop of corn. The presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives is the first fruits, the foretaste, of all that we will someday become. Until then, our present existence is similar to the pains of labor before birth.

    Do parents offer to show pictures of the labor and delivery process? Of course not. But they are quick to show pictures of their beautiful new baby. So as we groan now, having these first fruits of the Spirit, we’re looking forward to seeing the picture of our resurrected life with Christ in glory. Are the first fruits of God’s Spirit evident in your life? https://mailchi.mp/4db6a167ae41/the-truest-freedom-you-can-ever-experience-453085?e=9cbe669f39

  • Calling for End of "War Against Nature," Greta Thunberg's Arrival in US Brings Swell of Attention to Global Climate Strike
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/29/calling-end-war-against-nature-greta-thunbergs-arrival-us-brings-swell-attention
    Jake Johnson, staff writer

    After two weeks of sailing, 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in New York on Wednesday with an urgent call to action.

    "The climate and ecological crisis is a global crisis, and the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced. And if we don't manage to work together to cooperate... despite our differences, then we will fail. So we need to stand together," Thunberg told a crowd of supporters who gathered to celebrate her arrival. "Let's not wait any longer. Let's do it now."

    Thunberg's lonely protest outside the Swedish parliament building last August, and her persistent activism in the months since, sparked a wave of youth-led climate demonstrations across the world and inspired the global climate strikes set to kick off in over a 150 countries next month.

    Organizers expect the strikes, scheduled to begin Sept. 20, to be the largest climate demonstration since the "Fridays for Future" movement launched—and maybe ever.

    "Sea levels are rising, and so are we!" activists chanted as the emissions-free boat that carried Thunberg across the Atlantic approached New York.

    Thunberg's journey by boat, which stemmed from her refusal to fly due to the carbon emissions spouted by planes, garnered significant coverage from America's major television networks, bringing more attention to the forthcoming week of global climate action.

    Upon reaching shore, Thunberg said it is "insane that a 16-year-old has to cross the Atlantic Ocean to make a stand." But in doing so, the Swedish environmentalist galvanized young people who are eager to take to the streets and force political leaders to act on the existential threat posed by the climate crisis.

    "Something that's really common among young people is a lot of time we just aren't given that platform," Shiv, a college sophomore, told Earther. "Now, Greta and millions of other kids are showing that we don't need it handed to us. We can fight for the platform that we deserve and that our voices need to be heard."

    "On the 20th, we have three main demands as part of our coalition, which is no more fossil fuels, a just transition for frontline communities and for everybody in general, as well as holding fossil fuel executives accountable," said Shiv. "I think a really big contribution [Thunberg] had is really making young people realize that we do have power, that we have the ability to change the conversation."

    Not wasting time following her arrival in the United States, Thunberg said she is planning to take part in a climate strike outside of the United Nations headquarters in New York City on Friday.

    On Twitter, U.N. secretary-general António Guterres welcomed Thunberg to New York and applauded her commitment to confronting the planetary emergency.

    "The determination and perseverance shown during your journey should embolden all of us taking part in next month's Climate Action Summit," said Guterres, referring to the U.N. event in New York on Sept. 23, which will come as people across the world strike for a livable future and pressure world leaders to take action in line with the urgent recommendations of the scientific community.

    "We must deliver on the demands of people around the world," Guterres said, "and address the global climate crisis."

    All these idiots are nothing but one gigantic Pharisees, ha ha ha ha ha, all so eager to show everyone how faithful they are, how diligent they follows their dead god's words in their crapkoran, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    muslims are just as stupid as catholics are, and just as stupid as christian cultists are, and all other cults as well, scientology, and even evolution believers too, ha ha ha ha they're all deluded as fuck, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    Evolution, you gotta BELIEVE it works, otherwise, in REALITY science have STILL NOT PROVEN actual evolution actually worked. Ha ha ha ha.

    DNA is fixed, it cannot be changed. Take out something, it grinds to a halt, it dies.

    Not one LIFE FORM on this planet have been SHOWN TO EVOLVE to a DIFFERENT STATE, as "EVOLUTION THEORY" CLAIMS. Ha ha ha.

    Evolution is a magical thinking, ha ha ha.

    I'ts easy to IMAGINE lifeforms transforming, evolving, into different forms, BUT it doesn't hold water in REALITY.

    So yes, I classed EVOLUTION as a CULT, much like ISLAM is a CULT, and CATHOLICISM is a CULT, and all those broken christian cults that does not holds JESUS as the CENTRAL faith, instead they inserted something else, mostly fakes and shits just for the BILLIONS they makes with, so I defined them as cults.

    REAL Christians do not waste time on rituals, vain endless prayers, statues and images. They simply believes and have faith in Jesus Christ, that's all. NOTHING ELSE. That's what a REAL CHRISTIAN is about.

    So yep, most of the world worships stupid ideologies, and they're a cult just like any others.

    Communism is a cult too, so is liberalism, those are cults too. Fascism, feminism, fuckism, these are CULTS.

    Porn is a cult too, where people masturbates to endless varieties of nude bodies all fucking each other, worshiping the flesh, the cunts, the penises, the asses, they're a cult, alright.

    Goflers are cults too, they worships the little balls, the slim sticks, obsessing over their stupid greens.

    Footballs is a cult too, the swimming pools, the soccers, the olympic sports, all of them are cults, with their idiots worshiping them, thinking if they'd win just once, they'll be set for life, ha ha ha, idiots.

    I worship deafness, at least I don't fucking hear all your bullshit endless bleating about "convert to this or that', blah blah, fuck off, hey!

    FUCK YOU CULTS, ha ha ha. Fucking useless Pharisees with your empty pointless lives, ha ha ha.

    Abby Zimet, Further columnist

    Okay so maybe little Donnie can't buy Greenland, the latest shiny object of his cold dark dumb heart's desire, after snickering pols there and in Denmark retorted in no uncertain terms it's “open for business, but not for sale,” and what is this lunatic idiot's problem anyway?

    Still, Twitter had a riotous time with this new diversion from our apocalyptic reality. So many questions, so little time before none of this is even remotely amusing: Will Mexico pay for it? Did Ivanka ask for a Greenland?

    What about helping Flint and Puerto Rico instead? Does he think it's green and ripe for his inevitable golf course?

    Should we rent it first to see if we like it? Maybe see if he can find it on a map before letting him buy it?

    Will he fill it with brown people, sexual assault accusers, Democrats and MSNBC pundits?

    Will our president, that "enormous drooling git," accept this enticing, Nigerian-Prince-flavored offer? "Honored sirs," it read. "I am PRINCE KIELSEN and I am contacting you with exciting opportunity. I recently inherited an island but need a small amount of cash. Send a money order for $600,000,000 to my account and I will give you “Greenland.”

    Tough call, but faithful Twitter was there with advice: "Make sure you get the money up front." Also, "He'll just smother it in gold leaf and try to flip it to Norway," "There goes infrastructure week," and, "Let us know when you will be free to pick up the Internet you have just won."

    The New Yorker's Andy Borowitz was right behind them. After the Danish government reiterated that Greenland is not for sale, he reports, they noted "during the Trump regime pretty much everything in the United States, including its government, has most definitely been for sale.”

    Thus did Denmark then offer to purchase the United States "in its entirety, with the exception of its government." If its bid is accepted, Denmark adds, it has big plans: “We believe that by giving the U.S. an educational system and national health care, it could be transformed from a vast land mass into a great nation.”

    Denmark! Free college tuition, healthcare, child care. Paid vacation and parental leave. Living wage, progressive taxation, the blissful characteristic hygge making all things cozy. "Sold!" proclaimed one eager patriot. "When can we expect delivery?"

    From a weary, battered populace mired in our national nightmare, the grateful consensus burst forth: "Thank God."

  • Ahead of Trump 'Utter Fantasy' Speech on Environmental Record, DC Flooding Sparks Warnings on Danger of Climate Inaction
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/07/08/ahead-trump-utter-fantasy-speech-environmental-record-dc-flooding-sparks-warnings
    Andrea Germanos, staff writer

    Flooding in Washington, D.C. on Monday prompted calls for climate action as well as renewed scorn for the Trump administration's abysmal environmental record.

    The heavy rains came the morning President Donald Trump gave an afternoon speech in which he boasted of supposed environmental accomplishments. "Is this a joke?" said Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists. "It's like an arsonist talking about how valuable his work is to the fire department."

    The National Weather Service has a flood warning in place for the District of Columbia until 6pm, and earlier in the day some spots in the metro area saw over three inches of rain fall in an hour. Flash flooding in the area triggered commuter train stoppages, flight delays, washed-out roads, flooding at Metro stations, and even pools of water in the White House basement.

    "This is not the 'usual' flooding," the National Weather Service said in a tweet.

    The deluge drew the attention of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), who urged swift action to address the climate crisis. She said in a tweet, "Each day of inaction puts more of us in danger."

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also noted the flooding and other recent extreme weather, and the coinciding of the downpour with Trump's speech. "We don't have time for more lies," he tweeted. "We must address the climate crisis now."

    Ahead of Trump's address, green groups on Monday panned the expected content of the White House speech as "utter fantasy" and an "attempt to greenhouse gaslight the public" on the president's "record of dirtier air and dirtier water."

    The Sierra Club fired of a Twitter thread documenting the administration's attacks on clean air and water:

    "Trump's environmental policy is a fun-house version of what is actually required for leadership," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. "This administration has never met an environmental protection it wasn’t eager to overturn. The corporations profiting off of fossil fuels, chemicals, pesticides and factory farms, on the other hand, have a firm friend in the administration."

    "As the world continues to ring the alarm bell," said Hauter, "the Trump administration cheers on polluters. This is not what American leadership looks like."

    "True leadership," she continued, "would be phasing out fossil fuels for 100 percent clean, renewable energy and holding industry accountable for its pollution that endangers our air, water, and food.”

The Sierra Club fired of a Twitter thread documenting the administration's attacks on clean air and water: "Trump's environmental policy is a fun-house version of what is actually required for leadership," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. "This administration has never met an environmental protection it wasn’t eager to overturn. The corporations profiting off of fossil fuels, chemicals, pesticides and factory farms, on the other hand, have a firm friend in the administration." "As the world continues to ring the alarm bell," said Hauter, "the Trump administration cheers on polluters. This is not what American leadership looks like." "True leadership," she continued, "would be phasing out fossil fuels for 100 percent clean, renewable energy and holding industry accountable for its pollution that endangers our air, water, and food.”
