Alexamenos worships his god

But if the MessiahÔÇÖs crucifixion was scandalous to Jews, it was sheer madness to non-Jews. The early cultured despisers of Christianity had no trouble mocking the very idea of worshipping a crucified man. A famous cartoon from the Palatine in Rome, dated to some point during the first three centuries of the common era, makes the point. It reads, ÔÇťAlexamenos worships his god,ÔÇŁ and features a crucified figure with a donkeyÔÇÖs head (below).

How easy it would have been for the early Christians to tone down the fact of the cross, to highlight instead the life-giving force of the resurrection and the power of the Holy Spirit. How ÔÇťsensibleÔÇŁ it might have been to draw a discreet veil over the manner of JesusÔÇÖs death that had preceded this sudden new life.

Joanne Simpson ╚Öi o poveste despre Via╚Ť─â┬á

ÔÇőNu cred c─â numele Joanne Simpson ├«╚Ťi spune ceva. ├Än 1955, pe c├ónd era student─â, Joanne a r─âmas ├«ns─ârcinat─â.
Surpriz─â!
Tatăl copilului nu a vrut să audă de treaba asta. Rușine. Frică.
Ea…

Student─â.

Singur─â.

Responsabilitate.

Complica╚Ťii.
╚śi de obicei oamenii ├«ncearc─â s─â se descotoroseasc─â de complica╚Ťii.

La fel a dorit s─â se dezbare de “problem─â” rom├ónca din Manchester. Dup─â ce a n─âscut un copil perfect s─ân─âtos ├«n toaleta spitalului, l-a pus ├«ntr-o pung─â neagr─â de gunoi ╚Öi l-a aruncat ├«ntr-un co╚Ö. Copilul a fost g─âsit ├«ns─â. A fost resuscitat iar acum e perfect s─ân─âtos.
Ca ╚Öi aceast─â t├ón─âr─â din Manchester, Joanne nu putea fi mam─â ├«n acel moment. ├Äns─â spre deosebire de aceasta, Joanne a ales via╚Ťa. A ales s─â nu ucid─â copilul ci s─â-l nasc─â ╚Öi s─â-l dea spre adop╚Ťie.
Paul ╚Öi Clara au adoptat micu╚Ťul.

Oameni simpli, din California, f─âr─â studii superioare. Nici m─âcar cu liceul terminat. Mama a fost cam dezam─âgit─â, vroia ceva mai deosebit pentru b─âie╚Ťelul ei, ├«ns─â copilul a g─âsit o familie ce l-a iubit ╚Öi l-a ├«ngrijit.

Cred c─â numele acestui copil ├«╚Ťi spune totu╚Öi ceva.
Steve Jobs.
Da, acel Steve. Fondatorul Apple. S-ar putea să citești textul ăsta de pe un iPhone, iPad etc. N-ar fi fost posibil dacă mama sa l-ar fi aruncat.
╚śi chiar dac─â Steve Jobs n-ar fi avut un asemenea impact ├«n lume, chiar dac─â ar fi tr─âit anonim ├«n California, nimeni s─â nu fi auzit de el, via╚Ťa sa tot merita salvat─â. Via╚Ťa sa precum ╚Öi via╚Ťa acelui copila╚Ö din Manchester ╚Öi vie╚Ťile at├ótor copii nen─âscu╚Ťi sau n─âscu╚Ťi merit─â salvat─â ╚Öi pre╚Ťuit─â.
Pentru ca este vorba despre via╚Ť─â.

Via╚Ť─â.

Dar mai mult, 

Pentru c─â este vorba despre El,

Domnul Vie╚Ťii.

Astroturf Reality

We’re living in a manipulative fictional reality created and maintained by a few corporations that are setting up the mainstream economical, political etc. agendas. If you didn’t knew that, take off your glasses and clean them, as the speaker “advised” the audience. You can’t do much about it unfortunately. Not alone anyway. But if many will do it, life beyond the artificial is possible.

No wonder that the recent #Colectiv organic public movement in Romania was quite rapidly torn apart in a few power groups interests. The voice of the street suddenly transformed itself into the voice of the “corporations”.

Lucian revealed a Russian agenda, some political and media manoeuvres to “correct” the flow but, unfortunately, it seems that the people are quite happy to live inside a plastic bubble reality. 

And the people of Romania are not an exception.
