Summer Olympics '08: A time for glory and protest?

Samuel Lam
With protesters labeling the Games as the "Genocide Olympics," we could be witnessing a huge display of politics in action in Beijing come summertime. This is not the first time politics and this international sporting event have clashed....

The Olympics are the worship of man, the worship of his body. Fairs are the worship of his mind, his mental achievements and creations and the works of his hands. But sports are the worship of man's body; education is the worship of his mind; business is the worship of the works of his hands; and churches and Churchianity are the worship of his spirit, his own spirit, not God or God's Spirit; and war is the ultimate that all of these lead to! The ultimate manifestation of all of these is War!--His physical prowess, his mechanical ingenuity, his tactical genius and his indomitable spirit!
War is the ultimate combination of the worship of all these things, at what man considers his greatest, using the best of all of these!--Man at his best, which is his worst!--WAR! His most destructive worst, his greatest strength, his greatest genius, his greatest inventive power and his greatest spirit, patriotism or whatever you want to call it, is used for war and a competitive spirit against others who are doing the same!
The Olympics is a sports fair, a flesh fair, flesh peddlers! See how this competitive sports thing has been the final stages of every great civilisation and empire!--The worship of the body!

State Supreme Court takes up same-sex marriage

Bob Egelko, Chronicle Staff Writer
"As gay-rights groups call for marital equality and opponents warn of a public backlash, societal decay and religious conflict, the California Supreme Court is prepared for an epic three-hour hearing Tuesday on the constitutionality of the state law defining marriage as the union of a man and a woman."
The issue of homosexuality from a Biblical standpoint, delving into gay lifestyles, practices and inroads into modern society, in an attempt to discover why God equated the practice of homosexuality with the ancient wicked cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.--Why homosexuality (Sodomy) and those who flaunt it are abhorrent in His sight. Why Is Sodomy So Offensive to God? The starting point for understanding both human sexuality in general and homosexuality in particular should be the account of the creation of man and woman in Genesis 1 and 2. Chapter 1 deliberately notes that the man made in God's image was created male and female, connecting this with the command to reproduce ( Gen. 1:27,28 ). The creation of male and female, of husband and wife who bear children together, was meant to be a beautiful physical illustration of the Lord's relationship with His Bride, the Church, out of which would come new souls for His Kingdom. A homosexual relationship, on the other hand, negates it!
