I Have Heard Facts, Gossip, Myths, and Scandals
I have heard, and you have heard, what is purported to be the latest gossip about many celebrities, politicians, religious leaders, and innumerable other “actors” of society – both past and present. The gossip is also “local” among friends, relatives, and acquaintances. Much of the gossip evolves into scandals – real and imaginary. Much of it adds up to self-promotion or public relations. Many reports become myths.
Perspective Provides Variation to What You Have Heard
Have you heard the latest myths? Have you heard the latest scandals? Have you heard about the latest crime sprees? I have heard many variations of the communications that continue to bombard our world – as have my readers. The interpretations or perspectives contributed by each of the participants in the chain of communicating the events provide variety in our entertainment or concerns. This blog website is my effort to give “my take” or observations concerning world events of which I have been made aware or experienced.
Freedoms to Interpret, Believe, Discount, and Enjoy
The Sources of Our Freedoms are Paramount
What the Holy Bible Says About Freedom5
Galatians 2:4, KJV
4And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage:
Galatians 2:20, KJV
20I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
Galatians 3:1-5, KJV
1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that you should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? 2This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith? 3Are ye so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are ye now made perfect by the flesh? 4Have ye suffered so many things in vain? If it be yet in vain. 5He therefore that ministereth to you the Spirit , and worketh miracles among you, doeth he it by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?
Galatians 3:13, KJV
13Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree:
Galatians 3:22, KJV
22But the Scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
Galatians 4:3-7, KJV
3Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: 4But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons. 6And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father. 7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
Galatians 4:9, KJV
9But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?
Galatians 5:1-5, KJV
Top of Form1Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. 5For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith.
Galatians 5:13-14, KJV
13For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. 14For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Galatians 5:16-18, KJV
16This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.
Galatians 5:24-26, KJV
24And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
