Re: “A Hudson Megachurch, a Beloved Pastor and the International Sex Abuse Scandal They've Tried To Hide

Excellent reporting. What many today do not realize is that Jesus forbid spiritual authorities 2000 years ago.
Matt 23:8-10. 'Do not call anyone 'Father, Rabbi, Teacher, (Pastor, Reverend, Bishop, etc) for you are all ONE (family with equal access to the father) and all have the same TEACHER. And that TEACHER is the Lord who is the spirit. 2 Cor 3:17.
The gospel/good news that Paul taught had nothing to do with being water baptized. 'I did not come to water baptize BUT to preach the gospel.' 1 Cor 1:17.And what gospel was that? 'That reconciliation had come between god and mankind.' 2 Cor 5: 19-24.

When Adam stopped LISTENING to his father and followed his flesh, he was 'cast out' of his father's PRESENCE and he could no longer approach him without being summoned. His father-Son relationship was DEAD. He was spiritually dead to him. Thereafter god used 3rd party mediators, priests, prophets, and messengers (the KJV rendered the word 'angels') to intercede, carry his messages to man, make atonement, etc UNTIL Jesus came to fulfill all things and restore what Adam lost.

What did we have to do with being 'born in sin?' Absolutely nothing. What did we have to do with being born from above? They both were gifts bestowed upon us through no fault of our own.
God summoned the nation of Israel to be his wife (Queen) to sit at this right hand of power mediating between himself and mankind . This king/queen/subjects is a motif or symbolic language. Israel sat in a POSITION second in command while mankind was alienated from his father. Only the HIGH PRIEST could enter the HOLY of HOLIES and only once a year to make atonement and not without blood and the name of God written on his forehead band. When reconciliation came with the destruction of all the old elements of 3rd parties, mediators, priests, prophets, messengers, and ceremonial worship in a holy city, temple and temporal, seen, external, fleshly kingdom in 70 AD, anyone, anywhere, anytime can enter his presence. Jer 31:34; Heb 8:11.

The 144,000 FIRSTFRUITS from the tribes of Isreal were the Bride of Christ in the first century. They fulfilled the LAW of Firstfruits. Once the first pinch of dough was declared HOLY to the Lord, the whole batch of dough was Holy to the LORD. The Jewish wedding depicts what took place in a motif. The father of the bride would take the blood stained sheet to the high priest as proof of her virginity so that her husband could never 'cast her out.' Those firstfruits were martyrs, shedding their blood, proving their virginity and loyalty to Christ by refusing Emperor worship. They were judged worthy to rule with Christ while he served as HIGH PRIEST judging their fellowman, the 12 tribes of Israel.

The law forbid a divorced man from remarrying his ex wife but it allowed him to marry a virgin from his own people. We today are not the 'church.' We are not Firstfruits. We are not Bondservants to a MASTER. We are all Sons. A slave does not remain in the house forever, but a SON does. Jn 8:35. The old covenant woman could not inherit with new covenant woman. Old covenant Jerusalem in bondage to the law versus new covenant Jerusalem above which is of the freewoman. Israel was chosen for that particular position as mediator for the sins of the whole world (people came from all nations to Jerusalem during the feasts to make sacrifices) and once reconciliation came, we all have his name IN our forehead and can enter his presence freely because of Jesus being our Lamb of sacrifice.

There is much to be said about this but we must recognize that religion has deceived us so that they could maintain their power and authority over us. Ask Father, seek the truth, knock and it shall be opened to you.
Ask him to open your eyes of understanding, to give a spirit of wisdom and understanding . Prove all things for yourself. Learn the historical background by reading the works of Josephus, the last legal heir to the throne before 'he whom it belongs began to reign.' If you don't like wading through historical accounts then at least read some of the summary accounts, one of which is, 'Thrones of Blood.'

May his FACE shine upon all....The old was ordained by 'messengers' Gal 3:19; but the new is not subject to 'messengers.' Heb 2:5.

Re: “Family Values

I know this story too well
It was my daughter that I his piece of shit killed. Kristina Chesterman was her name. The apple didnt fall far from the tree. He actually complained about all that he wasnt going to be able to do now that this happened. The father, Dean Hoover actually commented to a reporter that we arent grieving parents, we are greedy parents in response to a civil suit we filed. It was a hit and run and a Riley Hoover had no remorse.

Re: “The Old Cleveland Browns Are Gone. We Remember the Worst Moments From a Wild 20-Year Ride of Failure

No way in hell are they gone. Fifteen years since a season opener produced a win (2004), and all the rest, not including last year's tie, have been losses. And a grand total of THREE winning home openers (04-14-15) since '99. Every year it's something new and bizarre and not seen before, but the bottom line is always the same...losing and more losing.

Maybe last year was just a fluke, like 2007 was. Maybe by mid-October all the hot air will have gone out of the hype balloon and the factory will once again be producing sadness. Or maybe not. We'll just have to wait and see. With the Tribe in the toilet, at least there will be one less distraction from focusing on the Orange and Brown.

Re: “System Failure

WOW! I attended this school in 2001-2002. I was in the 6 and 7th grade. It was horrible and the teachers were lazy. I am now 30 and reading this article has my mind blown. Knowing that our parents thought they were doing something great for us by sending us to a "charter" school and little did they know the school administrators were a bunch of crooks. I often wonder where some of those teachers are now and the many story they can tell about what happened in that place. So sad.

Re: “The Old Cleveland Browns Are Gone. We Remember the Worst Moments From a Wild 20-Year Ride of Failure

Man youre crazy if you think KC fans will pat us on the back and wish us luck in the SB. I live an hour away from KC and every time I go to a game at Arrowhead...well lets just say Im pretty certain that place is one of the worst places to see a Browns game because of how awful their fans are. I went to that same Browns/Broncos game last year that you mentioned. Those fans were fun and joked around the entire game, even after Peppers smashed their QB to end the game.

Re: “Jesus for Sale

The article for one is no doubt an unbeliever in Jesus or true Christianity. To try and degrade the power of God and true believers and Godly ministries shows who you are ,and what you are. There have always been mockers, vipers and snakes. I stand on the side with Jesus and you only have one other choice, and that is satan on the other side. We Shall All Stand Before God And Be Judged By Him And All The Books Will Be Opened . We either are under the blood of Jesus and cleansed and forgiven. Or we stand stained and contaminated with our sins unforgiven

Re: “The Worst of Cleveland: I-480

I'm going to go out on a limb, you drive a Smart Car or a Prius with a COEXIST sticker on it?

Because, good gravy you whine. If 480 is that hard for you to navigate, stay home. The rest of us are doing fine.

Re: “The Worst of Cleveland: I-480

The merging is the worst part. People don't comprehend how to merge correctly. Everyone is in a hurry, people are on their phones, no one wants to let anyone get in front of them. And then you have the special assholian class who think its ok to swerve 100 miles per hour in between lanes from far right to far left. and then back again. IDK how these truckers don't just run people over who cut in front of them and then slam on the brakes. Its idiotic.

Re: “The Worst of Cleveland: I-480

As far as Ohio goes, I'd say it's worse in Cincinnati-Dayton-- and I drive I-480 every workday. It's true that drivers don't know how to merge. For some reason, drivers here have no concept of "zippering together". Instead, people panic merge and try to do it too early. Also, at places like from I-71N to I480W or I77N to I480 east or I271 to I480 W, people think they need to change lanes as soon as the ramps and I-480 come together. If they would just relax and drive a couple hundred yards, there would be plenty of gaps to execute their lane change. Instead, they panic, come to a complete or near-complete stop, and screw up the traffic. This isn't rocket science people. Calm down and use common sense.

All that said, Ohio needs to come out of the 1950s and stop putting all of our eggs into the highway basket. We need alternatives to the car keys: Commuter rail, light rail, etc. We just got a gas tax hike because ODOT was going broke because we over-built our highway system and are over-dependent on it (faster degradation from over-use). I'm old enough to see the possibility of retirement on the horizon. I don't want to have no choice but to drive as I age and the reflexes slow. I will probably move to a region that gives a damn about trains and transit.

Re: “Cancer in Paradise

This is an old article that a friend just shared with me. I have lived here for ten years but the first thing I researched was radon gas when we moved into our home. our levels tested at 15 or 20 I believe, we are now 3-4. Because of our heavy clay soil we have higher amounts of this natural radioactive gas. Many home here have mitigations systems. Perhaps the homes that do not have them are being affected by cancer. I am sure the dump has something to do with higher cancer rates but everyone should test their home for radon.

Re: “The Worst of Cleveland: Parking and Entering Blossom Music Center

Yet they sell out concerts yearly. It's not going to change so just deal with it and stop getting so worked up. And if people would stop being so selfish, it would flow much better.

Re: “Two Years After Q Deal Debacle, GCC is still in Retrenchment Mode

Scene magazine will send a reporter and photographer to the very Black Keys concert it belittles. If this was such bad deal for the community, why don't you stop showing up at concerts there?
