Kampus Katolik memecat dosen yang menentang pernikahan gay

Marquette University, which bills itself as a Catholic institution, is moving to fire a professor who defended a student’s right to oppose same-sex marriage.

Professor John McAdams found himself under investigation by officials at the Wisconsin college in November 2014 after blogging on Philosophy Professor Cheryl Abbate. She allegedly said, “you don’t have a right in this class to make homophobic comments,” when a student disagreed with her.

Persamaan mendasar agama duniawi

Apakah perbuatan baik dan amal dapat menyogok Tuhan?

“The underlying error… the belief that people can gain God’s favor by being good enough–is the central lie that dominates all false religion.” — John MacArthur

In pagan religions, worshipers are always trying to buy the gods’ favor, or, as it were, hire the gods as their employees, by promising to do this or that good work, or sacrificing this or that prize animal. And where does it get them?

In contrast to every  religion ever invented by man, Christianity teaches that we cannot hire God, we cannot buy His favor, there is no magic word or special kind of prayer that will compel Him to do our bidding.

Instead, His favor, His grace, our salvation, eternal life, forgiveness of sins–these are all free gifts, given by a sovereign God and paid for, paid for on the cross, by Jesus Christ the Son of God. God saves us; but when we reach for our wallets, we discover the bill has already been paid. By Jesus Christ.

At the root of it, Christianity is very simple. How simple? In Acts 16:30, during a crisis in which he was within an inch of taking his own life, the jailer in Philippi asks of Paul and Silas, temporarily his prisoners, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. (v.31)

And that’s the whole theology.

You couldn’t possibly do enough good works, sacrifice enough bulls or rams, donate enough money to the church, to earn, to deserve, eternal life. But God can give it to you. It’s as simple as that.

Kesalahan mendasar… bahwa manusia bisa mendapatkan kesukaan dari Tuhan dengan menjadi cukup baik – adalah pusat penipuan yang mendominasi semua agama palsu

Dalam agama pagan (semua yang sujud kepada benda ciptaan duniawi), penyembah selalu berusaha membayar untuk mendapat kesukaan dari Tuhan, atau membeli Tuhan untuk menjadi pekerja mereka, dengan menjanjikan untuk melakukan perbuatan baik ini dan itu, atau dengan korban binatang ini atau itu. Kemana itu membawa mereka?

Kontras dengan semua agama duniawi, Kristen dengan tegas mengajarkan kita tidak bisa menyogok Tuhan, membayar untuk menjadi kesukaan Tuhan, tidak ada mantera ajaib atau hapalan doa khusus supaya Dia melakukan keinginan kita.

Sebaliknya, kasihNya, rahmatNya, keselamatan kita, kehidupan kekal, pengampunan dosa, SEMUA adalah HADIAH, GRATIS diberikan Tuhan Yang Maha Kuasa, dibayar lunas diatas kayu salib oleh Yesus Kristus Anak Allah. Tuhan menyelamatkan kita, bahkan ketika kita mengambil dompet, kita melihat bahwa tagihan (dosa) sudah dibayar lunas. Oleh Yesus Kristus.

Serangan teror di Palestina, turis menjadi korban

Police identified the attacker as Bashar Masalha, a 22-year-old resident of Kalkilya, an Arab city under Palestinian Authority control.

Masalha went on a stabbing rampage near the Jaffa port, a popular tourist destination, killing Taylor Force, a graduate student at Vanderbilt University.

Polisi mengidentifikasi penyerang bernama Bashar Masalha, 22 tahun, penduduk Kalkilya, sebuah kota Arab dibawah kendali Otoritas Palestina.
Masalha mengamuk dan menikam sekitar gerbang Jaffa, tujuan wisata yang populer, membunuh Taylor Force, seorang mahasiswa S2 di Vanderbilt University.

Barangkali Masalha sumber masalahnya ataukah kitab yang dipercayainya untuk mengantarnya mendapatkan 70 bidadari?

Nobel Winner to Obama on Global Warming: ‘Mr. President, You’re Wrong’

“The biggest problem Obama faces is climate change? How can he say that?” Giaever asked. “I say this to Obama: ‘Excuse me, Mr. President, but you’re wrong.’ He is dead wrong…
“So global warming really starts with these two people: Al Gore and [former United Nations climate head Rajendra] Pachauri,” Giaever continued. “And what they did – they made this curve popular…And what did this curve measure? Well, this curve measures what is the average temperature for the world for a whole year…For one year. So there’s an average temperature for the whole Earth for one year and that measures in a fraction of a degree.
“So what does that mean? I think probably nothing. Let me talk about that again: From 1880 to 2015, the temperature has increased from 288 K [degrees Kelvin] to 288.8 K – 0.3 percent. I think the temperature has been amazingly stable.
