September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

Aluminum is a known neurotoxin that destroys cellular metabolism and function. Hundreds of studies link to the ravaging effects of aluminum. The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

(ie, the infrastructure is very bad here b/c for many years, they were grossly underspent on. 1st Tim 6:10, the god of materialism has its roots firmly in the West) And remember once upon a time ago when shacking up b/w straight couples drew shock awe?

New Resolution Clearly Violates Romans 11:1, Isolates Jews From Salvation

At their annual synod, the EKD, a group of Lutheran, Reformed and United churches who comprise the liberal wing of Protestantism in Germany, passed a resolution renouncing its mission to convert Jews to Christianity. They wrote, "All efforts to convert Jews contradict our commitment to the faithfulness of God and the election of Israel."

Aaron Lewin, a Jewish believer in Jesus and the Berlin director of Jews for Jesus, commented: "The words of the apostle Paul seem to have escaped the drafters of the EKD resolution. Paul, one of the most fervent advocates of the enduring election of Israel, said, 'God has not rejected His people, has He?  May it never be!' (Rom. 11:1). The New Testament records that whenever Paul ministered in a new city, he first brought the gospel to his fellow Jews. That is not the action of one who believes Jews don't need to be saved (Rom. 10:1). That's why we are committed to making Jesus known to Jews and everyone else here in Germany who don't know our Messiah."

This resolution comes as the 500th anniversary of the Reformation is being celebrated. According to Religion News Service (RNS): "The move to renounce the Judenmission was part of the EKD's drive to deal with this embarrassing strain of anti-Semitism in their history so the Reformation anniversary could focus on Luther's other legacies."

Jews for Jesus International Director David Brickner commented, "It is disheartening that in this special year of celebration, an even more virulent form of anti-Semitism than Martin Luther's 'The Jews and Their Lies' is being perpetrated. If Jesus is Messiah and Savior of the world, and as Jesus said in John 14:6, 'No one comes to the Father but by Me,' then withholding that message from Jewish people is a grossly misplaced way of showing love."

A definitive consultation advocating for Jewish evangelism called the Berlin Declaration on the Uniqueness of Christ and Jewish Evangelism in Europe Today, (see attached, 106kb PDF), was circulated in Germany and throughout Europe in 2008. Among the signatories were German theologians, Dr. Eckhard Schnabel, distinguished professor of New Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Dr. Bernhold Schwarz, department head in Systematic Theology at the Free Theological College of Glessen and Dr. Rolf Hille, evangelical theologian and pastor of the Württemberg Church.

Jews for Jesus is a direct-approach evangelical organization with branches in 13 countries and 26 cities.
