There are about 2.3 billion #Christians in the world & 1.8 billion #Muslims. That gap is expected to narrow by 2060, when there will be 3 billion #Christians & nearly 3 billion #Muslims. That’s because #Muslims, on average, are younger & have more children than do #Christians.
The countries with the 5 highest #Muslim populations are all in South and Southeast #Asia or in sub-Saharan #Africa, rather than the #MiddleEast; and the countries with the three highest #Christian populations are in the #Americas rather than in the #MiddleEast or #Europe.
By 2060, #India will retain a #Hindu majority but also will have the largest #Muslim population of any country in the world, surpassing #Indonesia. The current #Hindu population worldwide is approx 1.2 billion. Expected #Hindu population in 2060 will be nearly 1.5 billion.

#Lebanon parliamentary elections:
#Hezbollah and its allies, including the Christian of @tayyar_official won 60 seats at the Parliament, while the allies of #SaudiArabia and the #US, notwithstanding millions of dollars spent to win the majority, won 42 seats.
For more than 12 years, #Hezbollah had 13 MPs and has always won 12-13 MPs in every parliamentary election. Therefore, saying "Hezbollah lost the majority seats at the parliament" is similar to saying Neo-Nazis were evacuated not surrendered in #Azovstal.
#Hezbollah's Shia partner, the AMAL movement, has 17 seats (as agreed with Hezbollah for over a decade) & continues winning 16-17 seats in every election.

The fight was on the #Christian seat: the pro-US-Saudi-Israel group versus the US-sanctioned group led by @tayyar_official

A few thoughts on building out an idea into a business / project. 🧵

1.) Write down everything, do not just put it in your phone. That may be convenient and easy, but something happens when you put pen to paper.
When writing ideas out by hand you will begin to notice more ideas flooding in and you begin to think more deeply about your project.
2.) Since you are writing ideas out by hand, make sure you carry a notebook with you wherever you go. This can be any size, but don't forget it. You never know when new details about your idea will come.

🪡 Taunting and tormenting Muslims has become India’s national bloodsport, post-2014. Barely a day passes without #Muslims being hectored by bigots on how they should live, love, eat, dress, pray, work, marry and procreate.

How would the 24th Maharaja of Mysore have viewed this?
2️⃣ ‘Nalvadi’ Krishnaraja Wadiyar was the Maharaja of Mysore for 39 years. He presided over a golden period of progress in health, education, industry, infrastructure, arts, culture, literature—i.e. vikas.

Gandhi called him ‘Raja Rishi’ (sage king).

3️⃣ In 1902, when he formally ascended the throne at the age of 18, he committed himself to “social care without discrimination”.

Like his parents before him, he said he would “continue to promote the welfare of all classes and creeds among my subjects.”

........

Besides, for a Christian, life isn't about marrying and giving into marriage. It is about living for Lord Jesus and His will.
And one of the last things I held and learned is, don't get mesmerized if you see someone living in faith and radical obedience to the Lord Jesus.

Thank God for another free time.... I have planned to write this down.

A man who likes to drink and smoke is a big no-no for me as a life partner. This is just the basic, not even close to the standard.
I don't even touch Biblical principles because in the Bible, this type of man wouldn't even be mentioned as a true believer.

Prof. Vincenzo Fiocchi Nicolai of @unitorvergata on French historian Paul-Albert Février's studies of catacombs of #Rome & other physical contexts of #Christian burial: catacombs in particular a "singular novelty" in Late Ancient era.
#ClassicsTwitter
Fiocchi Nicolai sees distinctions between hypogeal burial for intimate groups of people & open-ended gallery grids laid out w/option for safe & pragmatic expansion in successive phases. Was necessary to find solution for collective, extra-familial burial arrangements
Fiocchi Nicolai evidences that different tombs of popes & others venerated by name by Christians in literature of era use same location "in Calixti, in Priscilla, in Praetextati" for different areas of a cemetery, not seen as separate parts. "Incontestable" coemeterium means all.

First Station: Jesus Is Condemned to Death

V. We adore you, Christ, and we praise you.
R. Because by your holy Cross, you have redeemed the world.

@CatacombSociety It's starting - will stay on as long as I can before teaching classes this p.m. @Ist_Svizzero #sharingcatacombs
@CatacombSociety @Ist_Svizzero PhD candidate Caroline Bridel speaks about work on iconography and expression of identity at the grave. She defines "sharing" in space (proximity) and sharing of tomb, legally possible for all in #Rome, just law of propriety in terms of possession.
#SharingCatacombs
@CatacombSociety @Ist_Svizzero Bridel moves into topic of shared tomb design, architecture and objects, decorations (although we don't in fact know if the original developers of the "pagan" hypogeum at Vigna Randanini were in fact pagan - @archeoappia!).

Since I posted this video here, I've been touched by the warm responses from so many good people, but also startled by the storm of Sanghi spammers though I thought I was habituated to online misinformation and hate after so many years of facing organised trolling. (1/n)
Communal profiling, personal attacks, defamatory comments are all par for the course on Twitter. I'm tired of speaking up about this for myself since @Twitter @TwitterIndia @TwitterSupport do nothing. So today, I wish to address another aspect of this strategic trolling. (2/n)
Apart from aiming to mess with your head, troll bosses know that even if the targeted person doesn't amplify their tweets, some members of the public will see them when clicking on the original tweet. So they flood your mentions with the very propaganda you seek to refute. (3/n)

Sine Qua Non!

The word “Sine qua non” means, something absolutely indispensable or essential. For example, discipline is a sine qua non for success.

How essential something is, differs from place to place, and context to context…

…The things that are essential in Heaven may not be necessarily essential on Earth.

Isaiah 56:4-5 talks about some rewards in Heaven and the requirements. It reads, “For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me,…

Self Deception and How to Avoid It

OF ALL FORMS OF DECEPTION, self-deception is the most deadly, and of all deceived persons the self-deceived are the least likely to discover the fraud.

The reason for this is simple. ..
When a man is deceived by another he is deceived against his will. He is contending against an adversary and is temporarily the victim of the other's guile. Since he expects his foe to take advantage of him he is watchful and quick to suspect trickery. ..
Under such circumstances it is possible to be deceived sometimes and for a short while, but because the victim is resisting he may break out of the trap and escape before too long.

With the self-deceived it is quite different. He is his own enemy ..

On the occassion of #OXI day, I also want to highlight the personal story of a great and sadly still rather unknown Greek-jewish hero: Mordecaios Frizis (1893-1940).

He was a colonel in the #Greek military and died as first officer and war hero during the Italian #invasion.
First, a little background: #Jews have lived in Greece since pre-Christian times, and the oldest Jewish communities in Europe have their roots there. They were an integral part of society for millennia until the barbarism of the 20th century reached the country.
Almost 60,000 Jews, more than 75% of them from Thessaloniki, were cruelly murdered mainly in the gas chambers of the #Auschwitz and #Treblinka extermination camps. 97% of the Jews in #Thessaloniki did not survive the #Holocaust. Today, only about 5000 live in Greece.

#RomanSiteSaturday - The Mausoleum of Hadrian 🏛️💀🏰

(1/7) Hadrian's Mausoleum, more commonly known today as Castel Sant'Angelo, is a stunning cylindrical building on the northern bank of the River Tiber in Rome, Italy.

#Classics #Archaeology #Hadrian #Rome #History
(2/7) The construction of this towering mausoleum began in the 120's CE, and it was not quite complete when Hadrian died aged 63 in 138. It was finished the following year by Antoninus Pius, and saw most of the Antonine and Severan imperial families deposited there.
(3/7) Stylistically, Hadrian's Mausoleum was a potent symbol of imperial power. Separated from much of the city across the Tiber, it was encased in white Italian luna marble, with an elaborate cornice and decorated friezes. It was topped with a garden and a golden quadriga.
