Wino, które zrobił Jezus, nie było alkoholowe
Napój, który podał Jezus, to woda. Namiestnik uczty nazwał to winem. Najlepsze wino było w rzeczywistości poczuciem humoru, które gubernator potrafił docenić, gdy podano mu wodę w sposób, w jaki podano wino. Matka Jezusa uświadomiła sobie, że wino skończyło się, gdy uczta weselna jeszcze trwała. Nie wiedziała, jak Jezus rozwiąże ten problem, ale była przekonana, że znajdzie najlepsze rozwiązanie. Był dojrzałym mężczyzną, to znaczy był społecznie biegłym. Poinformowała go o problemie. Jezus żartobliwie odpowiedział na troskę matki. Problem był trywialny w porównaniu z problemem, z którym już się borykał - problemem zakończenia pragnienia. Normalnie, moglibyśmy sobie wyobrazić, gospodarz ogłosiłby, że nie ma już wina. Takie ogłoszenie mogłoby jednak zawstydzić gospodarza, zwracając uwagę na ich ubóstwo; i może osłabić ducha uroczystości. Jezus nie był zwykłym człowiekiem. Wiedział, co jest w mężczyznach. Wiedział, że zarządcą uczty był inteligentny człowiek, człowiek z poczuciem humoru. I o ile wiedział, widział sposób, by oszczędzić gospodarzowi obowiązku ogłaszania, że nie ma już wina. Jezus omijał gospodarza uczty i przekazywał odpowiedzialność bezpośrednio namiestnikowi. Zrobił to, podając gubernatorowi wodę w sposób, w jaki podano wino. Gubernator był zaskoczony. Właśnie podano mu wodę jako wino. Głupiec mógłby zawołać: „Hej, to tylko woda”. Gubernator nie był głupcem. Gubernator nie wiedział, kto wysłał wodę, ale wiedział, że ktoś przekazał mu obowiązek ogłoszenia, że nie ma już wina. I wiedział, dlaczego to zrobili. Nie zrobiono tego ze złością. Zrobiono to z humorem; dlatego też stanowiło dla niego wyzwanie, by przerzucić również tę odpowiedzialność. Starożytni Grecy mieli powiedzenie: Najlepszym winem jest woda W każdym razie wino działa jak lubrykant społeczny na świąteczne okazje. Poczucie humoru też; i ma tę dodatkową zaletę, że nie powoduje kaca. Gubernatorowi podawano wodę z poczuciem humoru, a deklarując, że jest to najlepsze wino, z powodzeniem sprostał wyzwaniu, jakim było przekazanie obowiązku ogłoszenia, że nie ma już wina. Każdy gość mógł sam odkryć tę prawdę. Zamiana wody na wino nie była cudem. To był znak.

So for all of you who are thinking to upgrade your summer wardrobe Here are five suggestions you must adhere to before buying your next shirt in order to make sure you're wearing the most stylish T-shirts for males available and nothing more. Put your money In Solid Colours Sometimes, it's better to stick to the basics. Although printed T-shirts designed for men (especially floral abstract prints, monochrome, and abstract) are becoming very fashionable, they won't prove as valuable to you as solid-colored counterparts. For one thing, wearing a unisex t-shirt with an outfit of pants or washed jeans is a perfect example of the classic fashion principle "less is more!" Another advantage of buying solid colors? There are plenty of options for layering your clothes. If your wardrobe has the top T-shirts for guys available you've filled your wardrobe with all the basics necessary to create various looks. Stay Within Your Budget Being fashionable, without compromise on your comfort, and adhering to your budget aren't mutually exclusive occasions. In fact, you do not need to overspend your budget to get a couple of top-quality and high-end T-shirts. The good news is that these high-quality T-shirts from MensXP Basics are available at a reduced price for a short period of time. Choose Premium Fabrics In the case of T-shirts that you're planning to wear, you simply cannot afford to disregard the fabric's composition. This is why opting for T-shirts made of Supima cotton and an organic cotton is an excellent option. Apart from being twice as soft as normal cotton T-shirts, Supima cotton T-shirts can be four times stronger than regular cotton. That creates a more durable and resistant to wear and tear. Don't forget about the fit The best method to ensure that you have the right size t-shirt to the letter (pun meant!) is to get it made to order. This isn't practical nor an option that is affordable. Much of it depends on the physique you're sporting. If, for instance, you have a large and well-defined body, you should consider choosing a slim-fitting top that can help increase the size of your muscles. If you're slimmer opting for loose-fitting t-shirts is the best option.
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.

“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han
“Dear My Most Beloved, Who was Never Meant to be Mine” by Lumina Han If I never fell in love with you, I would never have understood how destructive, violent, fierce, powerful, selfish, passionate and dangerous love could really be. You made me realize that I could never genuinely love anyone else besides myself. I could never truly give my everything to others, because I expected to receive more than to give. I craved to possess your soul, body and mind more than to embrace you with an untainted heart. And because you became the drive of my downfall, I grasped the truth that I had to let you go. You taught me that falling in love could become the hardest experience that one could ever handle. Meeting you, Seeing you and falling in love with you has been the greatest thrill. Yet, you became the one beam of light that blinded the pitch darkness that I tried to hide from the world. You taught me that I was incapable of devotionally loving you. To sincerely wish for your happiness without me as a part of your future, was an impossibility. I wanted to take ownership of you than for you to be yourself. Because what I really am, beneath my smiles, is that my world revolves solely on my needs and desires. To burn with such a raging fire in my heart for you has driven me into both insanity and clarity. Insanity, because you have forsaken my logic and judgement in those moments when you snatched away the center of my universe. Clarity, because you have revealed the true dark monster that I beheld deep down inside my soul. You have engulfed me in both hell and heaven, and with you I have been on the most thrilling joy of flying high in the sky. Yet because you became my drug, I fell deep down to the endless depths of the lonely, cold ocean, where I could feel nothing but suffocation and heartache. Through both these highest and lowest moments, I have learnt that it was because you never felt the same way as I did for you, that you changed my life forever. I could never be the same again, not because this love was unrequited, but because through loving you, I learnt that the turmoil of emotions I felt for you, weren`t true love at all. I disguised physical chemistry, infatuation, attraction and lust all in the name of ‘love’. Although no one has ever made me feel this much passion and rage as you have, what I felt for you wasn`t absolute love, but rather my own selfish desires and greed projected on to you. Since you walked into my life, you have shed light on how messed up my view of the world really was. Slowly, through the heart wrenching scars that I bleed from falling too deeply for you, I have apprehended things I could never have learnt had you loved me back. It was because we were never meant to be, that I could change. And because our fates were never meant to collide with each other, my paths have diverged away from you and towards you. While I was running away from you, to escape from your consumating presence, I have told myself a million times over to let go of what was never mine to begin with. When I walked closer to you, God taught me that the intense heat I felt for you would burn both of us alive. Because passion that is too rash and too sudden thinks nothing else but using the other to gratify and satisfy one`s own deep lack and emptiness. You were never born to fill up my hole, my scars and my iniquities. You are born to be you, to be the one whom God designed and planned, to be free and liberal from my obsessive presence. You deserve to love someone who loves you the right way, the sincere, faithful and innocent way, as I never did, as I never could have. You loved her instead of me, because my love for you was too lethal and poisonous for us both. Since the day I met you, our story has taken me on a toxic, venomous, annihilative and catastrophic ride towards an inevitable breakdown. You became my destruction, my road to torn deterioration and collapse. I could no longer envision a happy fairy tale ending between us, because the deadly outburst of covet and affection I felt for you consumed my entire being into a fever of stormy delirium. I was mad, crazy about you, and to me, you were all that I ever wanted, all that ever mattered... But because you were much stronger than I ever was, you kept your feet on the ground, and we never crashed into each other with the same disastrous urge and affection. You were my Romeo, but had I also been your Juliet, our story would have ended us in the same tragedy, an end that would have destroyed us both. I was never the one whom you could, would or should ever love. To mistake even for a second that we were one was my greatest delusion, my wildest fantasy and my most absurd illusion that I ever dreamt. Although we can never be together, our story still ends with hope. Because loving you was God`s greatest lesson, gift and inspiration in my life. And for that I am grateful that God brought us together for this period in our youth. Thank you for being the way you were. Because in everything that you were to me, you have been perfect. You made me a better person, without changing me into anyone other than my true self. I became what God made to become, because God let me meet you, fall for you, and grow closer to him through loving you. And because you have taught me what Christ`s love should be, you will forever remain a special treasure and secret deep in my heart, as my most beloved who was never meant to be mine. Even if our destinies never cross paths in the future, no one will ever replace what you were to me, and what you have made me become. And now, at the ending page of our story, I think I can finally love you the way you always deserved to be loved. I will love you even when you love someone else. I will love you even if you never return my love back to me. Perhaps in the future, I will fall in love again, with someone else besides you. And because of the things you have taught me about God and true love, I will love them more sincerely than I ever loved you. My passion for you will gradually wane and be replaced by a new love. But please know that I would never have been able to give them the love that they deserve, had I never loved you first. You were my first one true love, that changed everything for me. I love you in all your entirety, with or without me as a part of your life. Thank you, for being the beginning sentence, the first chapter and the opening of my love story.
