Independentemente de ser plágio ou não, o fato é que muitos dos chamados “corinhos de fogo” se assemelham aos pontos cantados nos terreiros de religiões de matriz africana.
Os cultos conhecidos como reteté, com pessoas rodopiando pelo salão da igreja, também nos remetem ao sincretismo com o candomblé e a umbanda. Alguns estão chamando o fenômeno jocosamente de Candombléia. O que tudo isso significa? Puro sincretismo? Fogo estranho?
Influência de outras entidades se fazendo passar pelo Espírito Santo? Ou poderíamos lançar um olhar mais humano e menos preconceituoso sobre o fenômeno? Como é notório, a religião com o maior número de negros no Brasil é a pentecostal.

the modern "#conservative" movement, the right wing of American politics, is fundamentally about the primacy of emotions over reason.

of course that's not something that right-wing politicians and pundits will ever admit openly. @MattWalshBlog pretends to be "rational".

Western society exalts itself as the sole embodiment of reason and logic and science on Earth; even mere #Christian bigots like @dalepartridge or @jordanbpeterson have taught themselves to pretend that their bigotries—and indeed their religious assertions—are "logical".

this is an easy trick for human beings to manage.

any human being can be taught to stick, without ever yielding, to an assertion—however absurd the assertion is. "@jordanbpeterson is logical and rational" is an absurd assertion but Mr. Peterson and his fans stick by it.

2. #Punjabi Tappe by one of the most beautiful Punjabi couples: Veena and Anant @anantkiveena

When it comes to tappe, national borders don't mean shit

The continuation of this thread

Finally, I could put this Lord's testimony here... Again

Back in January, while in days of fasting (21 days fasting movement of my church), I was about to end fasting for that day. I was still eating my meal when suddenly I received a WA message from my girl, Deea.
She sent me these 2 pictures. That was her mom and her boyfriend (at that time, he was in Medan) both got baptized on Dec, 25-26th 2021.

God wants us to see the Giver behind the gifts, even the gifts of salvation. Until we have come to realize that He is the greatest gift of the #Gospel, we will never really understand it or Him.
Our hearts will never be melted by God's love if we do not look to Him as THE GIFT.

We can so easily domesticate him with our expectations merely getting what we want, including "escaping hell." This really misses the heart of the Gospel and still sees God as tyrannical.
This is a very Augustinian movement that ultimately God wants us to see the Giver and not just the gifts, even of salvation.

Augustine would even say that we can be so idolatrous that we end up using 'salvation' as a means of distancing ourselves from God and hiding from him.

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made. ..
In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." (John 1:1-5)

The five verses now before us contain a statement of matchless sublimity concerning the divine nature of our #Lord #Jesus #Christ. He ..
it is, beyond all question, whom John means when he speaks of "the Word." No doubt there are heights and depths in that statement which are far beyond man's understanding. And yet there are plain lessons in it, which every #Christian would do well to treasure up in his mind. ..

(1/3) This incredibly detailed gold #Byzantine wedding ring is our #ArtefactOfTheDay.

Produced c. 7th century CE, the bezel depicts the bride and groom being crowned by the haloed figures of Jesus and Mary. Beneath them is the word: "Harmony".

#Classics #Christian #History #Art
(2/3) Remarkably, the exterior of the ring is also heavily inscribed with seven scenes from Jesus's life in chronological order, from the Annunciation to the Resurrection.

A personalised wish by the married couple is also featured: “Lord, help thy servants, Peter and Theodote".
(3/3) The edges of the bezel also feature a verse from the #Gospel of John (14:27) that asks God to grant the newlyweds peace.

The ring testifies not only to the intimacy of the couple, but of their steadfast devotion to #God on a small, personal level.

Bishop @silviojbaez addresses one of the most misunderstood and misinterpreted passages in St Mark's Gospel in today's homily, Mk 16:17-18. Let's take a look at his commentary in this thread.
Photo: Snake-handling church (1946) Harlan County, Kentucky (Wikimedia)
"These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes; if they should drink anything deadly, it will not harm them; they will lay hands on the sick & they will get well" (Mk 16:17-18)
Bishop @silviojbaez who is a scripture scholar and former professor of sacred scripture, sheds like on Mark 16:17-18. "The language is somewhat archaic and symbolic," he says, "but it is worth deciphering." This is an effort "to permeate creation with the gospel."

Devastating, revealing and hope-producing. #RaviZacharias was letch and liar. This leading evangelist was a leading deceiver/exploiter/abuser of women among evangelical men. But his org embraced the truth—about him. #silenceisnotspiritual 1/…
Evangelical women, this is how the betrayal happens. Women told to be pure, while leading evangelical men are filthy. They reek a foul stench that betrays their forays into hell (sexual abuse, exploitation and rape). #ravizacharias #anatomyofthebetrayal #silenceisnotspiritual 2/
Our faith is not about purity. It is about LOVE and mending the fallen brokenness BETWEEN all things (not OF all things). We are made in ima

1. The Church in this great festival honours all the saints. It is an image of that eternal great feast which God himself continually celebrates in heaven with all his saints, whom we humbly join in praising his adorable goodness
#AllSaintsDay #AllSaints
2. for all his mercies.

In this and all other festivals of the saints, God is the only object of supreme worship.

To what an immense height of immortal glory has he raised the saints! and by what means? His grace conducted them by humility, patience, charity, and penance,
3. through ignominies, torments, pains, sorrows, mortifications, and temptations to joy and bliss, by the cross to their crowns.

And casting their crowns before his throne they give to him all the glory of their triumphs. "His gifts alone in us he crowns."

1. This is outrageous! The #CCP changed #Bible and says that #Jesus killed a sinner.
This paragraph quotes the story of Jesus forgiving the sins of a woman who committed adultery from the #Gospel of John. But it changed the ending to:
"The crowd wanted to stone the woman... death as per their law. But Jesus said, 'Let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone.' Hearing this, they slipped away one by one.
"When the crowd disappeared, Jesus stoned the sinner to death saying, "I too am a sinner. But if the law could only be executed.. men without blemish, the law would be dead."
Then the textbook asks the student:
"How do you look at the law after reading this story?"
The textbook, published by the government-run University of Electronic Science and Technology Press, aims to teach...

And having agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. (Mt20:1-16 #SundayMass #Sep20) ~ Douay Rheims #Bible #Jesus #Gospel Image
2. But about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing, and he saith to them: Why stand you here all the day idle?

He saith to them: Go you also into my vineyard. (Mt20:1-16 #SundayMass #Sep20) ~Douay Rheims #Bible
3. And when evening was come, the lord of the vineyard saith to his steward: Call the labourers and pay them their hire..

But do not our sloth and malice still hold out against him? Have the boundless excess of his love, and the omnipotent power of his grace, yet triumphed over our hearts? Is his holy cross planted there? does it daily grow

Dear Believer, There Is A PLACE For You!

Why do you think Christians have no place in the world? A good number of people already made the conclusion that believers are not meant to own riches or have a place of influence in the world but if we don't then who should!
When ever I read Mathew 5:16 that says Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.
