    West Point Cadet Fired

    For an interesting story of a West Point Graduatew who has been given a less than honoraboe release fro the Army see: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/west-point-grad-who-posed-with-communism-will-win-in-cap-discharged/ar-AAyPXpa?ocid=spartandhp In my personal opinion, I believe that a major factor in this was what he may have said about major elected U.S. officials. The U.S. military is supposed to not be involved in political activities. Commissioned officers can be removed for what they say about the President and other elected officials. Yes, that restricts their free speech. But, it is legal. IF they do not want to abide by it, they can et out. Yes, it is possible that the U.S. can go after him to recover the costs of his West Point education, due to a failure to complete his required service. Whether this will happen remains to be seen.

    Downsides of Theological Discussions

    The central issue here is: What was the purpose for which God gave us the ministry of EGW? I do not agree with those who may say that God gave EGW to us to help us to understand the Bible. That, as I understand it, is in direct conflict what what she said about her relationship to the Bible. She clearly taught that the Bible had authority over her writings. IF there was a conflict in understanding, the Bible was to rule. Rather, I see the mission and ministry of EGW of EGW to be that of guiding us in our development as a denomination. We would not be what we are today, a denomination of some 20,000,000 adult members, if it had not been for her ministry. She is a gift from god to us.. But, she was not given to us to supplant the Bible. Certainly she, as a spiritual leader, wrote much that was devotional. But, those wr4iting are to be judged by the Bible, and if in conflict, the Bible is to rule.

    Downsides of Theological Discussions

    If we look at Bible writers, for example, they all had this problem. We know Moses was sent of God, but some folks were ready to stone him at times. Paul said that that he had an opinion regarding some things that were not God given (inspired), but since he had the Holy Spirit, he was confident that his views were worthy of consideration.
  16. the end does not justify the means. this is a serious negative development in our country. what disturbs me the most is that even with the masses and leaders against it, it is not being stopped. God help those families suffering this terrible abuse.

    Trivia

    5 Crazy Facts About Napoleon Bonaparte On this day in 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte suffered his final defeat at the hands of the Duke of Wellington at Waterloo in Belgium, bringing an end to the Napoleonic era of European history. Here are 5 interesting facts you may not know about one of the greatest military minds the world has ever known... He Nearly Flunked Out of Military School. Napoleon was born into semi-nobility and became the first Corsica-born graduate of Paris's École Militaire. But it was definitely an uphill battle. Though the young Napoleon started out strong in school, the passing of his father during his first year forced Napoleon to take on more responsibility for financially supporting his family. His grades suffered as a result, and though he would eventually graduate, he ranked 42 in a class of 58. Not exactly a spot that screams, "Next Conqueror of Europe." He Hated France in His Youth. Despite being the head of a French Empire that stretched across much of continental Europe, Napoleon started out as a Corsican Nationalist with a strong distaste for France. The Bonaparte family were long-time advocates of Corsica's independence from French rule, and Napoleon adopted the same philosophy. In a series of treatises on the history of Corsica, Napoleon calls the French "monsters" and "enemies of free men." But after spending extensive time in Paris, Napoleon began to warm up to the culture and opportunity France provided. Eventually, Napoleon changed his stance and went on to join the French Revolution. He Tried to Commit Suicide Before His First Exile. By 1814, Napoleon's reign was on a steep decline. After losing Spain in the Penninsula War, and following a disastrous attempt to invade Russia, Napoleon was forced to abdicate. Though he would eventually be exiled to a comfortable life on the island of Elba (from which he would later escape, leading to the loss at Waterloo on June 18, 1815), Napoleon had prepared for his eventual fall from grace. He carried with him a poisonous pill that had clearly lost its potency over the years because when Napoleon took it, he got violently ill, but did not die as planned. He Asked The Enemy for Asylum. As if exile to Elba wasn't generous enough, when Napoleon suffered his final defeat at Waterloo, he had the guts to draft a letter to British royalty requesting asylum and a small estate in London to live out his years. It's hard not to admire that kind of confidence. The letter never reached the Prince Regent (future-King George IV), but even if it had, chances are the Prince would've given it a thumbs down. Napoleon was so likable that Parliament was concerned he would gain favor among the British common folk. He was exiled to Saint Helena instead. Even at Saint Helena, Napoleon Plotted an Escape. Never one to know when to quit, Napoleon reportedly organized several attempted escapes from his exile on Saint Helena—a small island with steep cliffs and a continuous patrol of more than 2,800 men armed with over 500 cannons. Famous British smuggler Tom Johnson was reportedly offered £40,000 to execute an elaborate escape that included a makeshift submarine. The plot never came to fruition, and Napoleon died in exile in 1821.

    Memories

    Moishe and Miriam Shpielman are a couple in their nineties and they are having problems remembering things, so they decide to the go the doctor for a checkup. The doctor tells them that they are physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember. Later that night, while watching TV, Moishe gets up from his chair. Miriam asks, "Where are you going?" "To the kitchen," he replies. Miriam asks, "Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?" Moishe says, "Sure." She gently reminds him, "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?" Moishe says, "No, I can remember that!" Miriam then says, "Well, I'd like some strawberries on top. You'd better write it down 'cause I know you'll forget it." Moishe says, "I can remember that! You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries." She adds, "I'd also like whipped cream. Remember what the doctor said. Write it down." Irritated, Moishe says, "I don't need to write it down! I can remember that! Ice cream with strawberries! And whipped cream!" He then grumbles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes Moishe returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of lox and bagel. Miriam stares at the plate for a moment and says, "Where's my cream cheese?"

    Picture Perfect

    Moshie Meyerovitz asked his father, "Abba do you have an extra picture of yourself? I need it for a school project." Mr. Meyerovitz gave Moishie a picture he had lying around without thinking to ask what the project was. A few days later Mr. Meyerovitz was in Moishie’s classroom for a parent-teacher meeting when he noticed his face pinned to a mural the students had created. The title of their project was: "The oldest thing in my house."
