Friendships

Of them He chose twelve, whom also He named apostles. Jesus was a friend to everybody. Yet He chose twelve men whom He took into very close companionship. These men made up His personal family. He received from them the blessings of friendship, which all men need in their busy life. The chief reason why He chose the twelve, however, was that He might train them, so that when He was gone they could carry on His work. He still went about speaking the words of life to the multitudes, but He gave the most of His time and thought to those He had chosen. They were to be His witnesses, and must see His life and hear His words, in order that they might be capable witnesses. We should note that Jesus spent the whole night in prayer before choosing his friends. In nothing do we need more to pray than when we are choosing our friends and companions. If there was more prayer for wisdom and guidance in the forming of friendships, there would be less regret and fewer heart–burnings afterwards.

"Next year will be our 21st anniversary. No complaints at all. Love my wife and have 3 wonderful kids. I would not have done it any other way, was just how I was brought up." —wildhermit "Our relationship is pretty amazing. Even though we saved it for marriage, we were both plenty educated on the mechanics of everything, and neither of us had any weird hang-ups or fears about it.

Never regretted waiting for a second." —GreatTragedy "My friend and his wife waited until their marriage to get down. They planned on waiting a few years to have kids.

I Said No to a Religious Friend as She Lay Dying. Was I Right?
Religion is nothing but a crock used by people to fortify themselves against the frightening prospect of death, that chillingly inevitable end of life.  And when death impends, be that at war, in hospital, or on death row, people cling more desperately to that delusion.  Even nonbelievers walk on eggshells when faced with a dying person. We wonder: Is this really a good time to tread on their sensibilities and disabuse them of their crock? Not long ago I found myself in that quandary.  Someone I knew was dying, and I went to her deathbed to pay my respects. She was a woman who respected me as an elder of the Nigerian community in Cleveland.  She was also something of a protégé, having sought my advice repeatedly as she considered the proper advanced-degree path to pursue.  In my days as a scientific educator—when, also, two of my sons were in the university—I had become something of an information resource for my fellow Nigerians on matters like the choice of college to attend and the discipline of study, and especially how to tap into financial assistance programs available to good students and their parents in the U.S.  I chose to visit her when most of her friends and well-wishers would be at work. I was wary of the perplexed reactions of my fellow Nigerians when it became known that I am an atheist.  My friends told me I would come across much better as an agnostic or a pagan than an out-and-out atheist, for Nigerians are often ranked alongside Americans in sheer religiosity—of the pushy and loud sort.  It’s amazing that the very people whom religion has historically oppressed and denigrated the most (i.e. women, Blacks, colonized people) are the ones who cling to it most tenaciously!  The Nigerian media go so far as to estimate that one in three houses in the cities and townships of the Christian south of the country are used nowadays as churches, chapels, temples, tabernacles, or other places of worship.  “Nigerian atheist” is considered an oxymoron. Those who know I was raised a Catholic—and, to boot, an altar boy able to recite the entire Eucharist liturgy in Latin and English—profess themselves baffled by my apostasy.  Read the full article: https://www.fadewblogs.eu.org/2021/11/I-said-no.html

Uruguay v England: Rooney to prove his worth in favoured role
England simply must beat Uruguay to keep qualification in their own hands and while Three Lions fans’ nerves are jangling history suggests Roy’s boys should do the business against the South Americans. Being a European nation England play an admittedly limited amount of football against South American opponents but a look back at the last 20 games shows that we have rarely struggled against the likes of Uruguay. drow last names In the last 20 games against sides from South America England have lost just three, drawn five and won 12 times including against Brazil, Argentina and indeed Uruguay. True, most of these games have been of the friendly variety but England’s World Cup record against South Americans also provides encouraging reading with three wins, one draw and just one defeat – to Brazil. So with the stats suggesting reasons to be confident here are three solid bets for the crunch game. Wayne Rooney to score first @ 6/1 Wazza’s form has been the source of much debate and having never scored a goal at a World Cup finals this one is a bit of a Gut Truster pick. However, the Manchester United man is England’s all-time leading World Cup goal scorer when qualification games are included and after being restored to his favoured central position has never had a better opportunity to shine. We’re backing Wayne to fire us to glory and at 6/1 to open the scoring you should too! Over 2.5 goals to be scored @ 21/20 England will concede, they always do, so any win is likely to need at least two goals from the Three Lions, especially with Luis Suarez likely to be restored to Uruguay’s starting XI. Games involving England and South American rivals are often high-scoring affairs with 20 goals recorded in the last six meetings and an average of 2.85 over the last 20 games. England to win 2-1 @ 9/1 Just six of the last 20 games where England have played a team from South America have seen any side record a victory by more than one goal. So, if you’re backing Uruguay to score – and you should be as they’ve netted in 19 of their last 19 fixtures – then 2-1 looks the most likely result if England are to win, making 9/1 simply too good to turn down.

Hoa ngũ sắc trong việc chữa xoang thần kỳ
Từ lâu, trong dân gian, cây hoa ngũ sắc (hay còn gọi là cây hoa cứt lợn) đã được coi là một vị thuốc hay và cực kỳ hiệu quả trong điều trị bệnh viêm xoang với tác dụng chống viêm, chống phù nề, dị ứng trong cả đợt cấp tính và mạn tính. Viêm xoang là một bệnh lý phổ biến ở nước ta với tỷ lệ từ 15% đến 20% dân số bị mắc. Bệnh thường dai dẳng, khó chữa dứt điểm và thường gây ra các biến chứng như viêm thanh quản mạn tính, viêm nề ổ mắt, viêm mí, giảm thị lực, viêm tai giữa… khi không được điều trị kịp thời. >>>Xem thêm: Xịt xoang hoa ngũ sắc Do bệnh thường dai dẳng kéo dài nên để điều trị dứt điểm, người bệnh cần phải kiên trì dùng thuốc trong một thời gian dài, ít nhất là từ 3 đến 6 tháng, có nhiều trường hợp phải điều trị kéo dài tới vài năm. Vì vậy, các bác sỹ chuyên khoa tại mũi họng khuyên rằng: người bệnh nên sử dụng các loại thuốc được bào chế từ cây cỏ tự nhiên để đạt hiệu quả điều trị cao nhất lại an toàn và không có tác dụng phụ. Hoa ngũ sắc là một loại cây nhỏ, thân nhiều lông mềm, cao từ 25cm - 50cm, có hoa nhỏ màu tím và xanh, mọc hoang ở khắp nơi, nhất là ở vùng nông thôn. Theo các nghiên cứu hiện đại, toàn thân cây hoa ngũ sắc có chứa khoảng 0,16% tinh đầu (so với dược liệu khô), hơi sánh đặc, màu vàng nhạt đến vàng nghệ, mùi thơm dễ chịu. Trong tinh dầu có thành phần chủ yếu là ageratocromen, demethoxyageratocromen và precocen I (80%), có tác dụng chống viêm, kháng khuẩn, chống phù nề, dị ứng trong cả đợt xoang cấp tính và mạn tính. >>>Xem thêm: Tác dụng hoa ngũ sắc Hoa ngũ sắc hỗ trợ hiệu quả trong điều trị viêm xoang cấp và mạn tính Bên cạnh tác dụng chống viêm, hoa cứt lợn còn có tác dụng kích thích niêm mạc mũi tăng xuất tiết nên khi dùng, người bệnh thấy rát bỏng toàn bộ niêm mạc mũi. Nhờ vậy, những dịch mủ xanh, vàng còn tồn đọng trong lòng xoang và hốc mũi được thải loại ra ngoài. Ngoài ra, để tăng tác dụng thông mũi và hạn chế độ “xót” khi sử dụng hoa cứt lợn trị viêm xoang, cần kết hợp với hai vị thuốc khác là Tân di và Thương nhĩ tử. Mặt khác, bệnh nhân viêm xoang cũng nên kết hợp phương pháp chữa bệnh: “trong uống, ngoài xoa” để điều trị dứt điểm căn nguyên của bệnh. Điển hình là bài thuốc trong sách Cổ Y Văn - có sử dụng hai vị thuốc quý là Tân di và Thương nhĩ tử tán kết hợp với các thảo dược khác Bạch Chỉ, Cảo Bản, Phòng Phong, Tế Tân.... để hỗ trợ điều trị viêm xoang hiệu quả. Và để tiết kiệm thời gian, công sức trong quá trình điều trị, người bệnh có thể sử dụng các sản phẩm dạng xịt hoặc dạng dung dịch nhỏ mũi và các loại thuốc uống dạng viên nang được bào chế từ các vị thuốc nêu trên. Các dạng bào chế này không chỉ mang đến sự tiện lợi mà còn đảm bảo chất lượng do được sản xuất theo đúng quy trình và tiêu chuẩn chất lượng y tế. Song song với việc sử dụng thuốc, người bệnh cần lưu ý phòng và hỗ trợ điều trị bệnh bằng cách vệ sinh mũi thường xuyên, đeo khẩu trang khi ra đường, tránh tiếp xúc với khói bụi, hóa chất, hạn chế ăn đồ cay, đồ lạnh… >>>Xem thêm: Mỹ phẩm Nàng Duyên
Jesus: Prophet of Peace and Love or Purveyor of Fear and Hate?
Multitudes of Christian commentators over the past two millennia have proclaimed the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth to be unsurpassed tenets of spiritual wisdom and unexcelled guidelines for living a morally responsible life.  Hundreds of millions of devout believers are absolutely convinced that they will conquer death and attain everlasting life because God sacrificed his son for their sins. They are also convinced that Jesus didn’t really die. He was restored to life and subsequently ascended to heaven to spend eternity with his father, and soon Jesus will return to Earth to judge the wicked and rapture righteous believers up to heaven with him. Countless books have been written extolling the allegedly commendable features of the “Christian worldview” and the “Christ-centered life,” but, by contrast, few authors have examined the unsavory side of Jesus’ personality and his less than-meritorious behavior and opinions. For this presentation, I’ve formulated, in a balanced fashion, two sets of ten principles based on Jesus’ pronouncements. Although his directives come from the canonical gospels (the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), additional documentation is abundant elsewhere in the New Testament epistles and letters. The twenty precepts are listed along with the supporting Bible verses from which they derive. The cited verses and passages appear in this separate article. This scriptural evidence will enable readers to answer for themselves the binary question that is the title of this article. NB: This article is not made assuming Jesus literally indeed existed, but an evaluation of the character of the Abrahamic religious texts.
