    I ask forgiveness from you as well as all others who I have offended, including those who I have criticized and mocked. Please forgive me for my impatience, lack of composure and general lack of respect and courtesy.

    'And there are also many other things that Jesus did, which if they were written one by one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that would be written. Amen.' John 21:25 The Icon of the Savior, Image Not-Made-By-Hands, also Acheiropoieta (Byzantine Greek: αχειροποίητα, "made without hand") is one of the earliest icons witnessed to by the Church. The Feast of this icon is celebrated on August 16, during the afterfeast period of the feast of the Dormition, and is called the Third Feast-of-the-Savior in August. During the time of the earthly ministry of the Savior, Abgar, ruler in the Syrian city of Edessa, was afflicted with leprosy. Reports of the great miracles performed by the Lord extended throughout Syria (Matt. 4:24) and as far as Arabia at this time. Although not having seen the Lord, Abgar believed in him and wrote a letter requesting Christ to come and heal him. Abgar sent his court painter, Ananias, with this letter to Palestine telling him to paint an image of the Divine Teacher. Ananias was not able go to near Christ because of the great many people listening to his preaching. He attempted to produce an image of the Lord Jesus Christ from afar, but could not. The Lord called Ananias and promised to send his disciple in order to heal Abgar from the leprosy and instruct him in salvation. Then the Lord called for water and a towel. He wiped His face with the towel, and on it was His Divine Image. The Savior sent the towel and a letter to Edessa back with Ananias. With thanksgiving Abgar received the sacred objects and started healing. He continued healing until the arrival of the disciple Thaddeus, Apostle of the 70. The Apostle preached the Gospel and baptized the Abgar and all living in Edessa. Having written on the Image Not-Made-By-Hands the words, "Christ-God, everyone trusting in Thee will not be put to shame", Abgar adorned it and placing it over gates of the city. For many years it was venerated by those who passed through the gates. Edessa, a great-grandson of Abgar, fell into idolatry and was determined to remove the image. In a vision, the Lord ordered the Bishop of Edessa to conceal the image. The bishop and his clergy at night, blocked up the niche with clay tablets and bricks inclosing with it a lit lampada. Many years passed by and the inhabitants forgot about the Holy Object.

    His intent was to save us, but even so, He wept for us, as He did before the grave of Lazarus. He wept, just as any loving parent would weep at the foolhearted disobedience and death of their child.

    Nice historical synopsis by a Seventh Day Adventist: The ministry of the deaconess through history Nancy Vyhmeister Nancy Vyhmeister, PhD, is professor emeritus of missions, at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, Berrien Springs, Michigan, United States. What was the role of the deaconesses in the New Testament and in the church through history? To understand this issue fully, we shall first turn to the New Testament for a study of the word deaconess and review the life and work of some of the deaconesses mentioned there. Then we shall briefly explore the role of the deaconesses in the early church from available historical records.

    Actually, did it ever actually go away?... From Orthodoxwiki Deaconesses were an order in the primitive Christian Church. Information is sparse as to their activities at the time, though it is clear they were mostly involved with ministering to other women and girls. It being improper for males to be physically handling women, deaconesses were commissioned to assist especially in baptism and chrismation. It is an anachronism to say deaconesses did not perform the same liturgical role as deacons in the early church. That is imputing back in time to deacons a role which they were given considerably later in Church history.

    SAMOA WANTS TO DECLARE ITSELF A CHRISTIAN NATION Link The tiny island of Samoa, 2680 miles east of Australia in the Pacific Ocean, is looking to officially declare itself a Christian nation. Although the cover and preamble of the nation’s constitution already reference Christianity, the government wants to reference the faith in the body itself, reports CBN News. “The phrase ‘Samoa is founded on God’ will no longer be used. Instead, under the Constitution, it will be, ‘Samoa is a Christian nation founded on God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,’” said Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sa'ilele Malielegaoi. “Every time we say that Samoa is founded on God because it is in within our Constitution, God must've had a good laugh and thought that we have been fooling him,” he said. “And it has been more than 50 years that we have been fooling God, because this is not in the body of our Constitution.” The proposed amendment has found widespread support in the Samoan parliament.

    So at 10 years old you figured out the age old mystery of life and if there is a Creator? Many don't believe they figured it out until they are on their deathbed.

    I agree with much of what you wrote. But the Judge is consulting the President. So is Rand Paul on healthcare. Conservative Judges are being discussed and nominated. The Republican Party right now is much better than the Democratic Party. No doubt in my mind.

    The demasculanated men are losing the battle of ideas. When they lose the political power, it falls soon after. But at least they may once again start acting like men.

    You are right. It can change. Perhaps, in the very end, many dems will vote yes. That would be a gift from God and I pray for that.

    The liberals and globalist really are running scared. They are losing. There are seismic geopolitical and philosophical shifts which are occurring across the world, and by sheer numbers, the liberals are on the losing side. The politicians are fighting for their political lives. They have been left wearing pink hats, and chanting death to cops. They are losing the culture war, by and large because of the internet which is informing and educating people. In the times of old, public executions are what exposed how evil and ruthless man can be. Now, we see beheadings and dead children on a regular basis. The people are waking up and the electoral college blowout proves it.
