A teaching about one of America’s most translated writer, most published works, and an Adventist
In life we will encounter all kinds of people, and we will encounter honest people, dishonest people, and so much more. Now ladies and gentlemen, there is something that you should never do for being honest is to apologize for it. I know sometimes there will come a time where you say, sorry, May I be honest with you? Never be sorry, but say May I be honest with you? There is a big difference. It is always great to tell the truth and be honest with others because sooner or later that truth will always come out and there is no hiding lies because things always have a way of coming out. So just save the trouble and tell the truth. Nobody should have to apologize for being pure, real, and telling the truth right off the bat, rather than hiding it. Not saying anything and hiding something can…

ABOUT “GOING BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD”
A drawing board (also drawing table, drafting table or architect’s table) is, in its antique form, a kind of multipurpose desk which can be used for any kind of drawing, writing or impromptu sketching on a large sheet of paper or for reading a large format book or other over-sized document or for drafting precise technical illustrations. The drawing table used to be a frequent companion to a pedestal desk in a gentleman’s study or private library, during the pre-industrial and early industrial era. During the Industrial Revolution draftsmanship gradually became a specialized trade and drawing tables slowly moved out of the libraries and offices of most gentlemen. They became more utilitarian and were built of steel and plastic instead of fine woods and brass.
Modern-day idiom :The expression “back to the drawing board” is used when a plan or course of action needs to be changed, often drastically; usually due a very unsuccessful result. (Source Wikipedia).
WHY GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD?
On Yahoo News recently about 11 hours ago…..6 arrested in new rape of a bus passenger in India…
This is coming despite the court case and protests aroused by the rape of the physiotherapy student which attracted comments around the globe.
Mail online reported a case of a teenage girl raped at a school prom party by group of college football team players, case in court… And another just recent is a rape of a Mentally challenged girl, 15 “gang raped” under her desk during class as teacher did nothing at Martin De Porres Academy in Elmont, N.Y .
These are among the ones reported in the countless cases of rape victims around the world.
1 month remembrance of the shooting in Connecticut Elementary school which left about 20 children dead and six adult dead is around the corner. Major awareness is been created to make sure that most people sign a petition which will Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence as people die each day due to unwanted shooting.
These are among the ones reported by the media in the countless cases of unwanted shooting and killing of children and civilians
The internet activist, who just committed suicide, is another issue I must talk about. Aaron Swartz Reddit co-founder and internet activist committed suicide in New York on Friday, MIT’s The Tech reports. Swartz was charged in July 2011 with felony hacking, accused of stealing millions of documents from online research outlet JSTOR. Swartz pled not guilty in September 2012, but was still facing a possible prison sentence, ZDNet reports. Demand Progress’s executive director wrote in 2011, “It’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.”
According to his mum, ‘Aaron died due to emotional problems he has trying to cope with the fact that he might be reminded in prison and be abused, due to his internet activities and recent court charges’. He was just 26 years old.
These are events which are making the news and there are even more which are unspoken of and never where reported by the media, and the question now is, “WHO IS TO BLAME FOR ALL OF THESE”
Most people will definitely blame the rapists, and some might say Aaron crossed the line.
The issues with gun violence didn’t start today. Like some are still agitating, ‘give us right to own guns for to protect ourselves against attacks from bad people’.
Maybe if every woman, young girl had a gun, the issues with rape will be controlled or even completely halted…’some say’
Maybe if everyone had a gun armed robbery will be reduced..
its seems we also forgetting to ask how did all these began?
There is no moral justification to rape a woman, but have you asked why these youth find pleasure in these acts not minding the penalties involved….
There is so much NONSENSE on the internet which WE have by our laws allowed due to FREEDOM…
Aaron had a course he was fighting for and if that course had never existed probably he wouldn’t go into hacking…
I believe that we can go back to the drawing board and find out where the compass had failed us… the world could be a better place if we really go back to the board and turn around…
No more guns,
No more free shooting class for teenagers,
Reduce the NONSENSE on the internet that is where the focus should be….
FREEDOM HAS A LIMIT; EVEN GOD HIMSELF GAVE US A LIMIT TO OUR FREEDOM…
The woord of CURATORS..
THE GREATEST WANT OF THE WORLD
The Greatest want of the world is the want of Men,
Men who will not be bought or sold,
Men who in their inmost souls are true and honest,
Men who do not fear to call sin by its right name,
Men whose conscience is as true to duty as the needle to the pole,
Men who will stand for the right though the heavens fall.
Monday is the one-month anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut.
Twenty innocent children and six brave adults lost their lives, and the tragedy sparked a real debate about gun violence in this country — at least for now.
Newspaper headlines and TV news anchors are reporting that our number one priority — fixing the criminal background check system — is at the top of the president’s agenda. That’s a huge victory, and it’s thanks to supporters like you.
Unfortunately, our elected leaders can have short memories. Conventional wisdom in Washington, DC says that if the legislative process drags on long enough, the urgency will fade and Congress won’t have to act.
We can’t let them forget Newtown. And we can’t wait for the next tragedy to fix our broken gun laws.
Will you ask your friends and family to join a million fellow Americans and Demand A Plan to end gun violence? Here’s how:
It’s time for Congress to act. More than 835 mayors from across the country have come together to support common sense solutions to end gun violence.
Requiring criminal background checks for all guns sales. Taking assault weapons and high capacity magazines off our streets. And establishing harsh penalties for illegal gun trafficking.
These solutions are within the reach of our leaders in Washington. They just need your support to make it happen.
For the families of Newtown and the 33 Americans who are murdered with guns every day, please spread the word.
Please do this and save our FUTURE….for our youths, for our children and those yet unborn.
This is URGENT..

When we visit the afflicted we are not in so much danger of talking to no profit. But many of the young choose to be where there is no sorrow, no affliction, that with a light and trifling spirit they may indulge in speaking unrestrained, without care or forethought. Says the True Witness, “I know thy works.” I would say to our young friends, You must have an experience in these things. You must bear burdens; encourage and cherish tender, pitiful feelings towards the suffering; study how you may be of use to others—do them good and make them happy. Do not be wrapt up in self and think merely of your own enjoyment. If there are poor, sick, and afflicted among you, do not wait to be invited to see them and have a care for them. Go to them at once. If there is an afternoon visit anticipated, deny your self the pleasure of joining your young friends in a social visit or chit chat, and go to the house of affliction. Set your young friends an example. They may be persuaded to follow you; and hours spent with the poor, the afflicted and distressed, are precious. Angels keep a faithful record of it all, and your own conscience will commend you. Right doing will not go unrewarded. Think of the self-denying, self-sacrificing life of Jesus our pattern, who went about doing good. Who imitates his example? It is time we were awake to our duty, and that we realized that it takes more than a name to make a Christian. It is to be Christ-like. We are to be judged according to the deeds done in the body. Reader, What kind of an account will be opened of your case? If you have cared only for yourself, God notices it if others pass it by. That which you sow, you will also reap. Embrace every opportunity that presents itself for doing good. Have your life dotted all through with bright spots where self has been denied, and others benefitted. Let your experience be interwoven with acts of benevolence, and you cannot fail to be happy while you are making others happy; and you will finally receive the reward to be given to those who have “well done.” – GS 0.0
The Lord Jesus has given special directions as to what each of His “little children” is to do. When we pray, “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us,” do we do our part to answer this prayer? …If our brother has ought against us, we are to leave on the altar the gift we have brought to God, and be reconciled to our brother. Then we are to come and offer our gift. This is the only way in which we can keep in our hearts the peace of God.—Letter 12, January 11, 1903, , to Edson White. – TDG 19.5
