Often when an awful trauma comes over a young female person, when the ‘person’ is taken away from her, she does not only feel a prey but becomes also the hunted by society who points with a damning finger when she wants to make an end to that what the intruder placed in her body.
In certain countries, like India and in Africa, sexually assaulted girls become cast out by their beloved ones and by the community. They have to carry the wounds of the awful event with them for their all life.
For all the anti-abortion groups and people who condemn those girls who decided to undergo an abortion it is best to listen also to the voices of those victims.
Witnessing for this reason is very important. If there can be no empathy on the part of the anti-abortionist leagues communication and understanding on both parts will stay difficult.
For sure too often the victim is blamed for what went wrong and often the rapist can go without punishments and even gets some encouragement from others.
What rape victims need is a comprehending ear and people who can understand why and how they feel and why they want to take certain decisions.
When we go and look for help we also should look fro the priorities of that organisation by whom we knock at the door.
Having people giving endless lectures from puberty onward about the interests of boys, from a wrong viewpoint does not help either. Catholic institutions often did not help bringing up the children to be strong enough to be themselves and to be able to cope, resist and or communicate with persons of the other sex.
In many extreme religious countries we have seen fundamentalist groups and others terrorising the female sex. Often women were considered as the lower species to bring forth the next generation and to be a puppet ‘spiel’. Many boys who got that education as well used those of the other sex as their toy. They were brought up that way. Who can blame them?
At the beginning of this 21st century the West carries still many scars of the previous century where unwanted children or babies of young girls were considered as the bad in the world which had to be cast out and the girls punished. We would not like to think how many boys or man did got away unpunished, whilst they left an unhappy girl behind.
Shame and intimidation were the easiest tactics which could bring people down. But there were also many girls who came out of it much stronger and being much more aware of this precious life.
Some went looking for their child which was taken away from them at birth. Those who got an abortion had it more difficult facing the dark spot in their life. For many of them it was like an eating cancer making them rot away in grieve.
Several countries hoped to regulate and control abortions and help children who became pregnant. But shamefully we have to conclude that several organisations had other options than the well-care of those girls and looked more at the welfare of the community and politics, nor wanting to present them with some unwanted children or with children without loving parents or not being able to grow up in a stable family.
In certain groups of the community it looks cool when the man knows to dominate the woman. Certain man tiranise their partner and often use the children to set them up against the partner.
There that partner has to make certain choices and can avoid that there do come any more children. But as we can see sometimes the male part can be so dominant and so in control, that the partner still becomes pregnant. Others do find it normal to use the woman and have not the word ‘rape’ in their vocabulary.
For victims of such beings it becomes even more difficult to make certain choices. what we may not forget is that they sometimes also are forced to go to an abortion clinic. Other times they would love an abortion, but have no means or have lots of people who take care she doesn’t.
It is good to hear some witnessing from people who went through different stadia and not only became victim of rapists, wrong sex actions, but also victim of our societies attitude or certain organisations who want to regulate and control too much.
Let us not forget that those who are brought in a situation where they have to make a choice for what is inside them, it will never be an easy choice, and it will demand courage and it will demand perseverance and shall bring a turning point in the life of that person who shall never be able to be the same.
- On the sidewalk, the “antis” look at us
- We all have reasons for being there, unique experiences we carry up and down the sidewalk.
- bit the hand that assaulted me => scolded by the nuns for “unladylike” behavior + note sent home to parents
- endless lectures from puberty onward that “men only want one thing – that’s how they all are, they can’t help it, and so you have to protect yourself.”
- in order to receive any affection from men <= to reduce myself to my body + mind irrelevant in any romantic entanglements => took almost the rest of my life to unlearn this.
- body only valuable thing > had little control over what happened to it
- as sex worker > could pay my bills.
- boyfriend “rescued”
- went alone to a Planned Parenthood for an abortion
- impotent rage of fighting my way through protesters, with no escorts to assist me
- gain skills needed to survive in the nine-to-five world
- never once doubted my decision, + don’t to this day ====> I do wish that I’d been brave enough then to confide in a friend, and that I’d had escorts to run me through the gamut of shaming
- We need to draw a hard line here, because raising girls to believe that they are only their bodies – as blow up dolls, incubators, or punching bags – is dangerous

On the sidewalk, the “antis” look at us, escorts as well as clients, and based on our ages, the vehicles we drive or don’t drive, the clothes we wear, the overheard snippets of friendly conversation, they’ll tailor the harassment to what they believe is the greatest effect.
“Does your mother know you’re here – you may be an outcast!”
“That’s what a real baby is supposed to look like.”
“You are not young, nearing the end of your life – repent now!” and memorably,
“Go home and put some decent clothes on!”
We immediately think through all the counter-arguments, the snappy retorts, the “you-don’t-know-me’s,” and sometimes a client or companion will voice them. Mostly we hope to avoid the added annoyance of them learning our names. I can’t help but cringe when this happens, because any acknowledgement feeds the antis. But it’s hard. It’s so hard not…

Gelooft u het getuigenis van God, zijn Zoon en zijn dienaren? Wanneer wij een apparaat kopen, proberen wij dat uit; want we willen weten of het voldoet aan onze verwachting. God doet iets dergelijks, door allen die zeggen dat zij Hem geloven, te beproeven, om zo aan het licht te brengen of zij menen wat […]
Waar gaat het nu uiteindelijk om in deze discussie over ‘intelligent design’? Enerzijds zijn er bijbelgetrouwe christenen, ervan overtuigd dat God bestaat en de wereld heeft geschapen: voor hen valt daar niet aan te tornen. Anderzijds zijn er wetenschappers, die op grond van onderzoek tot conclusies zijn gekomen waarvan zij terecht menen dat je daar […]
In Handelingen 17 lezen we over Paulus’ ontmoeting met twee filosofische stromingen in Athene: de Epicureïsche en de Stoïcijnse school. Als we tijd en geografie buiten beschouwing laten, lijkt het alsof wij worden geconfronteerd met de ‘wijsheden’ in ónze tijd. Want het wereldse denken in Paulus’ dagen vertoonde bepaalde overeenkomsten met dat in onze wereld. […]
Er zijn er die beweren dat de Palestijnen oogstten wat ze gezaaid hebben, toen Gingrich hen als een uitgevonden volk bestempelde. Toch, zoals Barry Shaw opmerkt, zijn veel Arabieren het daarmee eens. In 1937 vertelde de Arabische leider A.B. Abdul Hadi tegen de Peel Commissie van de Volkenbond: Er is geen land zoals Palestina. Palestina […]
In onze huidige wereld willen mensen voor alles wel een uitleg vinden. In de vorige decennia namen velen omtrent het geloof hun toevlucht in interpretatieve geschriften. De laatste jaren is de hermeneutiek de belangrijkste wetenschap geworden in de theologie. Velen vinden het moeilijk om dat alles te verbinden met het leven hier en nu. Maar […]
The Jewish Museum of New York her latest core exhibition reveals a distance from Judaism indistinguishable from disregard, embarrassment, and disdain. Menachem Wecker’s essay on Scenes from the Collection, the latest permanent exhibition at the Jewish Museum of New York, talks about the city’s venerable 115-year-old Jewish Museum. Its collection of about 30,000 objects makes […]
Meerderen in België maken zich zorgen over de relatie tussen de overheid en de religies/levensbeschouwingen in hun land. Ten aanzien van de erkende erediensten in België stelt de Belgische staat zich welwillend neutraal op. De staat erkent bepaalde erediensten en niet-confessionele organisaties. Die erkenning gaat gepaard met bijvoorbeeld de financiering van de wedden van de […]
De mens, geschapen naar Gods beeld en als Zijn gelijkenis De mens is voortdurend op zoek naar zijn identiteit: ‘Wie zijn wij en waar komen wij vandaan?’. Voor wie niet gelooft in de Schepper is dit een nooit eindigende zoektocht. Maar in plaats van het wetenschappelijk bewijs voor onze oorsprong in de natuurwereld te zoeken, […]
De ‘overbodige’ God Een opmerkelijk verschijnsel in de wetenschap is dat je zelfs daar af en toe op een duidelijke vorm van fundamentalisme kunt stuiten. Nu is dat karakteristiek voor mensen in het algemeen, dus ook voor (bepaalde) wetenschappers. Sinds de ‘Verlichting’ is men alle vormen van godsdienst gaan zien als vormen van onderdrukking van […]

Some may find it not right to see the the vote for Trump as a reflection of the deepening racism and chauvinism within the working-class and consider the reality to be quite the opposite.

“The Philistines gathered all their forces at Aphek, and Israel camped by the spring in Jezreel.

“They have now driven me from my share in the LORD’S inheritance and have said, ‘Go, serve other gods’ ” (1Sa 26:19). David’s sad words here demonstrate that his greatest sense of loss in exile was not that of his personal comfort or material prosperity, but rather his opportunity for fellowship with God. By making […]

“Saul continues his relentless pursuit of David, irrespective of the divine determination that the young man who defeated Goliath was Yahweh’s anointed-elect. It is a sad commentary on human nature that it acts in opposition to the divine will, even within the community of the faithful. The Lord Jesus himself was pursued to his death […]
De schrijvers van de boeken van het Nieuwe Testament, tonen telkens hoe Christus niet zichzelf heeft behaagd, door een hoge plaats met eer en macht onder de mensen te zoeken, maar “Zichzelf ontledigd heeft en de gestalte van een dienstknecht heeft aangenomen”; ja zelfs heeft “Hij Zich vernederd en is gehoorzaam geworden tot de dood, […]
Wij hebben gezien hoe Jezus zichzelf verloochende ten voordele zich als een rein Lam voor God aan te bieden als Zoenoffer. Hij riep niet op zijn hemelse Vader om hem van de paal af te halen en hem te verlossen van de verschrikkelijke pijnen. Door deze onzelfzuchtige daad van Jezus kunnen wij nu leven in […]
“Anderen heeft hij gered: laat hij nu zichzelf redden als hij de Messias van God is, zijn uitverkorene!” (Lucas 23:35). De ‘oversten’ die Jezus, toen hij aan de houten paal hing, zo bespotten, haalden hier de profetische woorden van David aan: “Wend je tot de HEER! Laat hij je verlossen, laat hij je bevrijden, hij […]

De laatste jaren kon men heel wat leiders van de verschillende kerkgemeenschappen hun twijfels over God en het geloof zien en horen uitdrukken. Het heen en weer gezwalp van bepaalde kerkverenigingen deed mensen zich afvragen of de kerk zelf wel wist waar ze naar toe wenste te gaan. De vele kerkschandalen hielpen er verder aan […]
Already early in history of mankind we learn that there shall come one, coming from seed of a human being, who shall be bruised in the heel. I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his heel.” (Genesis […]
Many Old Testament writers wrote about the prophet to come, about whom is spoke in the book of Moses and who shall be the special “Seed of a woman” given by God and who will bruise Satan’s head whilst his heel would be bruised with nails on the wooden stake.
Jewish and Christian literature since the time of Yeshua or Jeshua have pointed to Genesis 3:15 as the first reference to the Messiah in the Torah. Genesis 3:15 NHEBJE I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will bruise your head, and you will bruise his […]
The first human beings had chosen to go their own path. As any good father would do when his children had done something wrong, God punished them. But as a loving Father He in His great mercy promised for a solution and preserved David’s bloodline and the Messianic promise. Mankind had chosen Yet, we each […]
Do you know where in the Bible we find God‘s first promise to send the Messiah? The answer is foundational to our faith because within this first Messianic Prophecy mentioned in the Bible lies our fate of eternal separation from God. Too many christians limit the Bible to the second main part, the Messianic Writings, […]
“Jesus entered the temple courts, and, while he was teaching, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him. “By what authority are you doing these things?” they asked. “And who gave you this authority?”” (Mt 21:23 NIV) In the previous chapters written by Matthew we came to see a Jesus who […]

“15 But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that He had done, and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they became indignant, 16 and said to Him, “Do You hear what these are saying?” And Jesus *said to them, […]
Matthew 21:15-17 – “Out of the Mouth of Babes” MT21:15 Now the chief priests and Scribes became incensed when they saw the awesome things Jesus did as well as all the boys yelling, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” MT21:16 The priests and Scribes asked Jesus, “Do you hear what they are saying?” But, Jesus […]
Wanneer Sarah haar zoon baart, noemt ze hem “Izaäk” (Isaak) (יצחק; Yitzhaq), zeggende: “God heeft gelach (צחק; tzhoq) voor mij gemaakt; iedereen die hoort, zal met me lachen (יצחק; yitzhaq) “(Genesis 21: 6). Op de dag dat Izaäk wordt gespeend, geeft Abraham een feestmaal waarop “Sara zag [Ismaël], de zoon van Hagar, de Egyptenaar, die […]
When Sarah gives birth to her son, she names him “Isaac” (יצחק; Yitzhaq), saying, “God has made laughter (צחק; tzhoq) for me; everyone who hears will laugh (יצחק; yitzhaq) with me” (Genesis 21:6). On the day that Isaac is weaned, Abraham gives a celebratory feast at which “Sarah saw [Ishmael] the son of Hagar the […]
We ontvingen de volgende vraag: – Abraham had een vrouw genaamd Ketura. Staat de Schrift ons toe haar te beschouwen in verband met de allegorie in Gal. 4: 22-31, als een deel van de allegorie niet genoemd door de Apostel, maar achtergelaten om er later te worden van afgeleid?

Abraham had several concubines of which Keturah was one of those bondmaids or woman bondservant or unmarried female serf or slave.

For ages lots of people wrote about the Most High and about the creation of our universe. Many sought solutions in a series of gods and their adventures, others could find it was only One Eternal Being Who was the Source. Many researched how it could be that all those things came into being. Scientists […]
Mankind may find the cradle of civilization in Mesopotamia which gave us a treasure of many valuable inventions, discoveries and stories. Many may say that it was here that agriculture began, but they should know that already long before that age, people tried to cultivate the earth to extract edible products from it.

God has given the world His Word and Guidance for life, but everyone is free to follow it or not. It is not by doing good or doing bad that everything in life shall run like we would like it, or would go good or bad.
We all know that “bad” things happen to “good” people, and no spiritual building can hold by pretending otherwise. It’s simply untrue that every well-lived life leads only to outwardly positive outcomes. It’s equally untrue that difficult circumstances prove that someone strayed from the path.
Het woord “Evangelie” In het Hebreeuws Het woord in het OT is bas-har. Het wordt in de historische boeken gebruikt voor berichten uit de strijd, en in de psalmen voor het verkondigen van Gods grootheid.

In de maand van menselijk ondernemen en Omer-tellen krijgen wij nog eens de kans om over onze onzuiverheden en de nood aan zelf-verfijning na te denken. Met Pesach Sheni kan de mens nogmaals aangeven zijn band met God te willen vestigen.
Le mois de l’entreprise humaine nous donne la possibilité de penser que nous ne sommes pas purs mais les différentes étapes du service divin représentées par Pessa’h Richone (le premier Pessa’h) et Pessa’h Chéni se reflètent dans l’une des différences halakhiques (rituelles) les concernant.

In het Joodse geloof zijn er de apart geplaatste boeken maar ook legendes welke vertellen over de man Abraham welke wij als onze aartsvader aanschouwen, omdat de elohim hem heeft uitverkoren om de vader van velen te zijn.
De Bijbelse naam Abraham betekent ‘verheven vader’. Dit was de Chaldese naam van Abraham. Toen Abram door God werd gekozen om de stamvader te worden van Gods volk, werd hij Abraham genoemd, wat ‘vader van vele volken’ betekent.
Adam mag dan wel de eerste man zijn die de wereld kent, maar voor ons geloof is de nomade wiens naam van Abram naar Abraham verandert is door God veel belangrijker.
In voorgaand en volgend bericht gaan wij dieper op die Bijbelse figuur in.
In ons geloof kijken wij gerust ook naar het begin aller tijden maar betreft ons geloof nemen wij anderen dan Adam en Eva als onze grote voorouders. Hij die voor ons de eer krijgt om onze aartsvader te zijn is Abraham.
De Chabad organisatie wil een cursus aanbieden die mensen een diep inzicht kan geven in het onderwerp van het verloop van de Joodse geschiedenis, zodat men woord gedwongen om de eigen houding in het eigen dagelijkse leven te heroverwegen.
The intention of this site was to be able to find answers to some serious questions and to know what others thought about it. But there were no answers from others and silence continued to form the fog.

For most people life is just a big question-mark. Living this small life, earn and die is just not satisfying for them and it does not seems like the purpose of life.
In the capitalist countries money often receives the first place of importance and many forget that love for each other is so much more a valuable asset for having a better life.
Several churches want to be popular and promise their followers excellent health with a lot of wealth, as long as they contribute richly to the church.
Abundance is on the inside. It’s a feeling first, an amount second.
Christianity is a love affair. Each person calling himself or herself a Christian should live a life of service to God and Jesus, by serving each other, putting the needs of others before our needs, showing to others the love Jesus gave us.
The upset of this site is to give a helping hand to find who is who in the bible and Who to follow and how to build up a life worthy of Jesus Christ.
People should know that false teachers will teach anything they believe, and not from the Bible. People also should look at the preachers their behaviour and see if they have the Holy Spirit in them, following, living according and teaching the words of the Holy Bible. Often their way of talking, using a language which is not according the way Jesus would talk shall dismantle them and should be a sign for you that they are not the right one to follow.
Peter evidently did not view himself as the rock on which Jesus would build his congregation, since he wrote at 1Pe 2:4-8 that Jesus was the long-foretold “foundation cornerstone,” chosen by God himself. Similarly, the apostle Paul referred to Jesus as the “foundation” and “the spiritual rock.” (1Co 3:11; 10:4). For every Christian or follower of Christ their church or community should have Jesus as their cornerstone and not as such one or another hierarchical religious organisation.
In the history of Christendom we see many churches which started of as so called cults or so called heretic movements, though many years later they sometimes outgrew their original group and/or became one of the many main churches. Therefore one should be very careful by damning a group or calling ti a cult or sect, when there is not really anything what qualifies it to become called a sect or cult.
