Concerning the recent events, Covid-19 and the riots. Physically I am ok, I am a few miles for downtown Portland Oregon. Mentally I am in aguish. The hoodlums looted JapanLA a store know to us Sanrio / Hello Kitty fans. What does a store in LA have to do with a murder in Minneapolis? I Remember the Rodney King Riots, I was caught up in it, riding a passing though the madness in Long Beach but made it to the Navy Base safely. I had the same questions then; why loot business that had nothing to do with the Rodney King situation? I am disgusted. Do not call me an African American I cannot associate myself with such wickedness. May God have mercy on your soul who do injustice in the name of justice.
John 1English Standard Version (ESV)
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Just a quick post I made earlier this month:
I have mixed feelings about this. If I give a non partisan answer: The Democrats fumbled the ball. The strategy backfired and galvanize the opposition. They concentrated the generalization based on the grievous nature of sexual assault rather than Kavanaugh’s conduct or proof of guilt. (the premises sexual assault is bad, conclusion Kavanaugh is bad). What is missing in this fallacy is objective evidence. The sad part is the distraction push out so serious questions about Kavanaugh’s jurisprudence, the activist court, excessive power of the courts, or the need of decisive decisions (unlike Kennedy).
