The Great Bible Soccer Tournament

In view of the present craze over the World Cup, I have, therefore, taken the liberty to present to you our current Bible crisis using the game as an analogy.

I am confused. Are you?

As though things are not getting anymore murkier, Mahathir has to weigh in with his dua sens worth about the state we are in. He said, "Malaysia not Islamic but also not secular." Now, what in the heck is that supposed to mean? If we are neither Islamic nor secular, then what are we. The twilight zone?

Similarly, in the open verdict of Teoh Beng Hock's court hearing, it was finally concluded that the victim did not kill himself and neither did he commit suicide. Okaaaaay, then how did he die? So, the only logical conclusion we can arrive at is that TBH must still be alive and walking amongst us.

God, please save us from these dummkopfs!!!

Ben Stein speaks on the state we are in today ...

Only hope we find GOD again before it is too late ! !

The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary.

 My confession: 

I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat... 

Or maybe I can put it another way: where did the idea come from that we should worship celebrities and we aren't allowed to worship God as we understand Him? I guess that's a sign that I'm getting old, too. But there are a lot of us who are wondering where these celebrities came from and where the America we knew went to. 

In light of the many jokes we send to one another for a laugh, this is a little different: This is not intended to be a joke; it's not funny, it's intended to get you thinking. In light of recent events... terrorists attack, school shootings, etc.. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found a few years ago) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school. The Bible says thou shalt not kill; thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbour as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave, because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about.. And we said okay..

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with 'WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.' 

Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. 

Are you laughing yet? 

 Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it. 

 Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. 

 Pass it on if you think it has merit. 

 If not, then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in. 

My Best Regards, Honestly and respectfully, Ben Stein

The times, they are a-changin'

This is a plaque hung outside on the wall of our Church, St Francis of Assisi or Gethsemane in Cheras.

Back then political leaders supported and helped Christians to develop the Church.
Today, they torched them.
And that is the tragic fact.

A note from a husband/boy friend/lover or to whoever it may concern ...

Dear Wife/Sweetheart/Girlfriend/Partner/Whomever it may concern -

1. Between 12 June and 13 July 2014, you should read the sports section of the newspaper so that you are aware of what is going on regarding the World of Soccer, and that way you will be able to join in the conversations. if you fail to do this, then you will be looked at in a bad way, or you will be totally ignored. DO NOT complain about not receiving any attention.

2. During the World Cup, the television is mine, at all times, without any exceptions. If you even take a glimpse of the remote control, you will lose it (your eye).

3. If you have to pass by in front of the TV during a game, I don't mind, as long as you do it crawling on the floor and without distracting me.

4. During the games, I will be blind, deaf and mute, unless I require a refill of my drink or something to eat. You are out of your mind if you expect me to listen to you, open the door, answer the telephone, or pick up the baby that just fell on the floor .... it won't happen.

5. It would be a good idea for you to keep at least 2 six packs in the fridge at all times, as well as plenty of thing to nibble on (excluding your body parts), and please do not make any funny faces to my friends when they come over to watch the games. In return, you will be allowed to use the TV between 12 am and 6 am, unless they replay a good game that I missed during the day.

6. Please, please, please!! If you see me upset because one of my teams is losing, DO NOT say "get over it, it's only a game", or "don't worry, they'll win the next time". If you say these things, you will only make me angrier and I will love you less. Remember, you will never ever know more about football than me and your so called "words of encouragement" will only lead to a break up or divorce.

7. You are welcome to sit with me to watch one game and you can talk to me during half time but only when the commercials are on, and only if the half time scores is pleasing me. In addition, please note I am saying "one" game; hence do not use the World Cup as a nice cheesy excuse to "spend time together".

8. The replays of the goals are very important. I don't care if I have seen them or I haven't seen them, I want to see them again. Many times.

9. Tell your friends NOT to have any babies, or any other child related to parties or gatherings that requires my attendance because:

a) I will not go,
b) I will not go, and
c) I will not go.

10. But, if a friend of mine invites us to his house on a Sunday to watch a game, we will there is a flash.

11. The daily World Cup highlights show on TV every night is just as important as the games themselves. Do not even think about saying "but you have already seen this ... why don't you change the channel to something we can all watch?" because, the reply will be, "Refer to Rule #2 of this list."

12. And finally, please save your expression such as "Thank God the World Cup is only every 4 years". I am immune to these words, because before and after this comes the Champion League, Premier League, Italian League, Spanish League, KPL, FA Cup, Euro Cup, etc.

P/S By the way, if you get stuck on the road, call the Police or AA.

Thank you for your cooperation.

MAIS, JAIS, are you people out of your mind?

What's with these people from MAIS and JAIS anyway? Now they are contemplating on 'disposing' the seized Bibles from the Bible Society of Malaysia. How is it to be done, has yet to be made known. Are they going to get Ibrahim Ali to reignite his aborted 'Burn the Bible' campaign? Will the Bibles be sent to the public incinerator? Or will they end up, flushed down the toilet bowl? As far as I can see, madness seems to be affecting the minds of these people and to think of 'disposing' holy books in whatever manner other than to return them to the rightful owner, is an abomination that no religion would ever contemplate.

If they are so against the Christians for using the word 'Allah', then they should also look into the holy book of the Sikhs, the Guru Granth Sahib, where the word 'Allah' appeared numerous times. Are they going to start raiding all the Gurdwaras in the country and confiscate all their holy books. Oh, by the way, I hope they are not contemplating on the banning of the word 'Guru' as well which is the first word of the Sikh holy book. So all I can say is that by going after the Christians, it tantamounts to outright selective persecution.

The word 'Allah' in Sikhism appear on the top left hand corner.
