fyi  With Christmas just around the corner, this info might just make your day.  8)

Are you giving your loved ones holiday gifts they can use freely, or gifts which put someone else in control? Electronics are popular gifts for the holidays, but people often overlook the restrictions that manufacturers slip under the wrapping paper. From remote deletion of files to harsh rules ...

[quote] An ISIS jihadist has recently converted to Christianity after being left for dead near the Eastern border of Syria where he was finally rescued by Christian missionaries from the region [...]The young man claims he was brought back to life [,,,] and eventually converted to Christianity days later, believing he had been misled throughout his religious life under the worship of Allah.

The young man, who’s wounds have surprisingly healed in a very short time, has chosen to live amongst the members of the Catholic presbytery who rescued him from the desert and hopes his story will help other ISIS fighters change their ways and convert to the one and only true God, the priest told local reporters.

a typical NDE (near death experience) - though of a negative type - where one views the consequences of one's actions during the life review. near-death.com has a lot more on NDEs from people of all religions.  Usually people just become more spiritual (non-religious, moving away from organized religion) after an NDE, but sometimes they change their religion.  nderf.org has 7500+ NDEs.

The article says the ISIS fighter "was always taught that to die as a martyr would open him the Gates of Jannah, or Gates of Heaven” .... “Yet, as he had started to ascend towards the light of the Heavens, devilish entities, or Jinns he called them, appeared and led him to the fiery pits of Hell. There he had to relive all the pain he had inflicted upon others and every death he had caused throughout his entire life. He even had to relive the decapitations of his victims through their own eyes”, images the jihadist claims will haunt him for the rest of his life...  “Then God spoke unto him and told him that he had failed miserably as a human soul, that he would be banned from the Gates of Heaven if he chose to die, but that if he chose to live again, he would have another chance to repent of his sins and walk along God’s path once again”

God places conscience inside souls, even if they never heard about this or that religion and this is how God determines where a person ends up in the afterlife - since people know innately what is good and bad in a given situation (https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/1M1QWqtv8Xe has more)

May it be indeed true that diabetes (as also all deseases) be cureable resp. reversible on up to regaining complete healthiness, if not in all cases then hopefully at least in some.  That sure would be nice.

The diabetes breakthrough you are about to discover is twice as effective as the leading type 2 drug at normalizing blood sugar, stopping neuropathy pain, preventing blindness, amputations and other diabetes problems.

Consider also the following PDF file witness to the threat to life and welfare of Americans living abroad via the double whammy that is FACTA  and FBAR taken together....:

http://www.irsmedic.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/FBAR-penalty.pdf   <-- I cite out of that paper's concuding remarks... :

[quote] There are between 5 and 6 million US citizens living abroad. In many, if not most cases, they will never owe US taxes because of both higher local taxes which effectively negate US tax payment obligations and/or basic credits and exemptions covering a large part of their incomes. Yet, the IRS has instituted an onerous regime which would never be tolerated domestically. Exempting Americans who are legally residing in foreign jurisdictions from FBAR, and relaxing the filing requirements for ex-patriots who reside in high tax jurisdictions (Canada and Western Europe, for instance) would do much to limit the alienation of US persons abroad and would bring the US into compliance with international norms. It is also, perhaps most importantly, only 'just' to do so.
The number of citizens renouncing their citizenships each year is rising, and this is in no small part due to the oppressiveness of the current tax regime. For practical reasons, the U.S. would benefit by discovering means to detect and punish tax evasion which do not lead to the diminishment of this nation’s wealthy and the alienation of its citizenry. [/quote]

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2131225/Record-number-American-citizens-renouncing-citizenship-avoid-paying-taxes.html
Last year alone, almost 1,800 people renounced their U.S. citizenship or handed in their Green Cards - a record number since the IRS began publishing lists of those who renounced in 1998.

I hereby heartily invite good natured discussion about why the European style depictions of Jesus and of his disciples continue to be used, shown, displayed.  Let the discussion begin.  8)  One cautionary plea I do, however, make in advance thereof...;  Do let us leave out of such discussion prejudicial adjectives and insinuations such as be found within the perhaps nur rhetorically meant closing words of the here cited Daily Kos article...:

While these churches may sincerely have no idea that many people, myself included, find the continued, almost exclusive promotion of this imagery offensive, it's time that we at least discuss the real reasons why white churches love these images so much.

Aua.  Impfen mit lebend viren kann angeblich gar die Ursache(?) sein für die Verbreitung jener Krankheit. 

[quote] CNN, Fox und USA Today [...] wenden sich an die Unsicheren, um das Gefühl zu verbreiten, Nichtgeimpfte stellten eine Bedrohung – oder schlimmer noch eine Geißel für die Gesellschaft dar.
 
Wenn überhaupt, ist das genaue Gegenteil wahr, berücksichtigt man veröffentlichte wissenschaftliche Arbeiten, die zeigen, dass die größte Bedrohung von Geimpften ausgeht. »Gesundheitsbehörden sollten für alle Kinder und Erwachsenen, die eine Impfung erhalten, eine zweiwöchige Quarantäne verlangen«, betont Sally Fallon Morell, Präsidentin der Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF).
 
»So viel Zeit ist mindestens erforderlich, um die Übertragung infektiöser Krankheiten an die übrige Bevölkerung zu verhindern, einschließlich von Menschen, die vorher geimpft wurden.«

[quote] if Mersini-Houghton’s work is correct, much of physics and astrophysics might need to be rethought. […] there’s no reason we should expect that our current theories necessarily work in every region of the Universe.

[quote] It is no secret that the Earth is in trouble and that we humans are to blame. Just knowing these grim facts, however, won’t get us very far. We have to transform this knowledge into a deep passion to change course. But passion does not come primarily from the head; it is a product of the heart. And the heart is not aroused by the bare facts alone. It needs stories that weave those facts into a moving and meaningful narrative. [/quote]
