Chris·tian  (krĭs′chən)
adj.
1. Professing belief in Jesus as Christ or following the religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
2. Relating to or derived from Jesus or Jesus's teachings.
3. Manifesting the qualities or spirit of Jesus, especially in showing concern for others.
4. Relating to or characteristic of Christianity or its adherents.
n.
1. One who professes belief in Jesus as Christ or follows a religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus.
2. One who lives according to the teachings of Jesus.
----------------------------------------------------------------
There are many FORMS of Christianity.  Several are derived from the teachings of Jesus Christ but, as I believe, have taken a turn away from His teachings in an effort to fulfill a human desire.  

In its most basic definition, Christianity is believing on Jesus Christ, his life, and teachings.  My Faith is very simple.  I TRY to live my life as Jesus lived His.  I love endlessly, I forgive and I am tolerant of difference.  I want people to know Christ, to know Love.  That is all.

Please understand I am not Catholic or Protestant or Baptist, Methodist, Evangelical, Presbyterian or any of the other branches on the "tree".  I stay close to the root that is Jesus.  His Father, God, sent him here to give us an example that we can see, to teach us, to save us from ourselves.

Tonie Sap lake in Cambodia supports a major freshwater ecosystem, which in turn supports the people who live in floating villages around it.

Wow...

Be sure and go to check out the original post shared by +Yonatan Zunger​ for work interesting discussion and for more information.

Wow...
 
Something I did not know: at the Statue of Liberty's feet are broken chains, and in the original design of the statue, she did not hold a book in her left hand, but rather the chains she had shattered.

Edouard de Laboulaye and Frédéric Batholdi, the two men behind the statue, were fervent abolitionists, and the initial impetus for the statue was the ratification of the 13th Amendment.

The final design of the statue, in which the chains are visible only from a helicopter, was the result of strong objections from the project's American backers, upon whom de Laboulaye and Batholdi were relying to fund the pedestal and the site; they wanted no mentions of slavery. In 1885-6, the United States was fully in the throes of "reconciliation," the process of the official forgetting of pre-War history, the rehabilitation of the political image of the South, and the formalization of the "New Slavery" system in both North and South which was to prove so immensely profitable. Such a public decree of slavery as an evil, and the antithesis of liberty, would have been an entirely unwanted political problem to those who wanted the country to "just get over it."

The chains remained virtually unknown until recently, with even the National Park Service not mentioning their existence in its publications. Ordinary tourists never saw them; thanks to the steep angle of the plinth, they're completely invisible from the ground. It was only in 2011 that (for reasons not fully clear) this changed, and the USNPS now discusses this history at length on its site.

Via +Ralf Haring and +Peter da Silva.
Sharon Kyle: The story behind the creation of the Statue of Liberty was suppressed for more than 125 years. Finally, the National Park Service includes literature that explains the shackles and chains.

+Jason Long this is my opinion on most every subject. I feel that once we realize our fallacy as humans... Once we realize we have all done wrong... Then we can start doing right by one another. Thanks for your comment Bro.

Pretty neat little feature of Google Maps
You’re probably used to getting turn-by-turn directions to your next destination with Google Maps, but there’s also a pretty-well-hidden Driving Mode just for... well, driving. It alerts you to traffic problems, directs you to nearby gas pumps and stores, and is useful for those times when you already know your route or don’t even have a destination in mind.

That's new? Odd. I could swear I'm using this for years now. Traffic updates I mean. Don't care for anything else.

My first tournament in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Super stoked for the 2nd place. I got caught in an ankle lock during the 1st place match. Silly mistake and I messed up the escape. Next time I'll get him. The team brought home a car load of medals against some really good practitioners. Congrats to the whole Clinch team!

Buyer Beware!!! Horrible HORRIBLE experience at Midas in Frederick. They did work on our car's suspension and the car got way worse. In the words of the mechanic "Jimbo" at the store, it was a death trap and should never have left their shop in that condition. Over the course of several more weeks we tried to get the repairs done correctly and at a reasonable price (after already spending $1200 on shoddy work). They kept saying they were discounting things when in fact they were squeezing us on the labor costs and trying to hose unknowing customers. They finally refused to do the work which they screwed up, so we had to invest more money to get the car into a safe driving condition. Funny enough there was another customer in the store at the same time who was having the same kinds of issues. The store manager actually told me that we should be happy that we are getting such a GREAT discount. That was the point when we lost it. Customer service here is horrible and the mechanics are about as bad. Skip this place at all costs!!!!!!

Skip this place and go straight to Jersey Mike's. The subs at Jimmy Johns are packed with lettuce and little else. Sorry, I don't usually like to say bad things, but this is ridiculous...
