Serial Killer or Serial Tiller?

May 29, 2014

 

Lucknow (India) (AFP) – Two teenage girls have been found hanging from a tree in a northern Indian village after they were gang-raped by five men, police said Thursday.

A post-mortem report indicated that the cousins from the low-caste Dalit community, aged 14 and 15, hanged themselves late Tuesday after being attacked in a village in the Budaun district of Uttar Pradesh state.

“The report suggests ante-mortem hanging, which means the girls probably committed suicide. But we will take into account all aspects before coming to a conclusion,” Atul Saxena, Budaun police chief, told AFP.

The prime accused Pappu, who goes by one name, was arrested after an initial police complaint was registered by the girls’ relatives against five men for gang-rape, murder and child sexual abuse, Saxena said.

“A team of around 50 police officers is on the lookout for the absconding accused,” he added.

Saxena could not confirm the exact ages of the accused, but said they were in their “late teens”.

The incident sparked protests by the victims’ families and villagers, who accused the police of apathy early on Wednesday when the bodies were discovered.

The attack is the latest to highlight India’s dismal record on preventing sexual violence, despite tougher laws and efforts to change attitudes towards women after the fatal gang-rape of a student in New Delhi in December 2012 shook the nation’s conscience.

Earlier this year, a young girl was gang-raped in a remote village in West Bengal state on orders from tribal village elders who objected to her relationship with a Muslim man.

ARTICLE …

 

NEW DELHI — Worried about its dwindling numbers, the Roman Catholic church in southern India is exhorting its flock to have more children, with some parishes offering free schooling, medical care and even cash bonuses for large families, church officials said Tuesday.

The strategy comes as India’s population tops 1.2 billion, making it the second most populous country in the world after China, and runs counter to a national government policy of limiting family size.

But in the southern state of Kerala, where Catholics have long been a large, important minority, church authorities believe the state’s overall Christian population could drop to 17 percent this year, down from 19.5 percent in 1991. While they don’t have precise numbers for the Catholic population, they believe it is also dropping sharply.

“The Christian community in Kerala is dwindling. We realized that if the numbers decreased further, it would have a negative impact on the community,” said Babu Joseph, spokesman for the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India in New Delhi.

Christianity is widely thought to have come to India in the year 52, when St. Thomas came to Kerala after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

What remains unsaid in Kerala is that the state’s Muslim population grew by 1.7 percent between 1991 and 2001, while the Hindu and Christian populations have fallen.

Kerala, once a communist bastion and the state with the highest literacy rate, was about 56 percent Hindu, 19.5 percent Christian and 24 percent Muslim in the last census in 2001.

The church in Kerala is also incensed by a bill drafted by a government panel recommending a strict two-child policy to check population growth.

The bill – which is unlikely to become a law – suggests three months of imprisonment and a 10,000-rupee ($200) fine for couples with more than two children.
So Kerala’s Catholic parishes have launched a variety of programs, from free education to free medical care, said the Rev. Jose Kottayil of the Kerala Catholic Bishops Council. Most begin offering the benefits with the fifth child, but the church helps poorer families with fewer children.

The St. Vincent de Paul Forane Church, in the Kerala town of Kalpetta, is offering a bond of 10,000 rupees ($200) in the name of the fifth child. The money would be deposited in a bank until the child turns 18, church officials said.

A large number of church-sponsored groups in Kerala have begun campaigns with the slogan “A large family is a happy family.”

Kottayil said the Catholic church plans to honor large families at a ceremony next month.

In the previous essay I left off with the following:

 

A few things to discern:

Who is your heavenly brother?

And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it. Luke 8.21

One must understand what is of the world, and what is of God. What do you call family? Who do you call brother? Not all roads lead to the One.

Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Matthew 7.14

In whose HOUSE have you made your bed?

My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? John 14.2

Where are YOU?

10 For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 2 Corinthians 3

 

When Jesus Christ was ‘physically’ active in the Ministry of HIS Father, He stated: I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me … what He is saying: there are three cornerstones presently at Work, and “I am” is necessary for this way(1), for this truth(2), for this life(3) … to come to the Father. The HOUSE (CHURCH+TEMPLE=BODY IN UNITY/AGREEMENT) is the “I am.” This is CHRIST, or what I often say for clarity: the Christ Way (Heart in unity with mind to initiate soul within the realm of the Spiritual Walk). Jesus as PROPHET (Prophesied Messiah) was of HUMAN QUALITY … used FOR the Christ way; the anointed way, meaning, the way of Truth in Love (God’s Will and Testament: HIS COMMUNITY), and this, of course, is the Divine. If you know your Scripture, you may recall Peter’s vision of the sheet with four corners. The three is three of the four: North, West, South, and WE are now entering the EAST. This is the Autumn Season. This has everything to do with what I essayed in with direction and property in the previous essay, as well as, the Return.

 

27 FOR AS THE LIGHTENING COMES FROM THE EAST AND FLASHES TO THE WEST, SO ALSO WILL THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Matthew

 

What disturbs me about RELIGION is the interest it has in itself—that it calls others to itself, and that it prides itself on being THE CHURCH, or the God, or the only “baptism”,  or the only partnering that anyone can have in order to be saved. Even worse, that it claims infallibility in any of the following: works, title, community, deeds, order, godliness, sainting, architecture, doctrine, dogma, teaching, catechism, evangelism, ministering and placement in the BODY OF CHRIST. Let me remind the reader … MANY ARE CALLED; FEW ARE CHOSEN. But I ask you, “The two girls found gang raped and hanging from a tree … are they now saved?”

There is not a single person on this earth who knows the answer to that question. Why? BUT OF THAT DAY AND HOUR NO ONE KNOWS, NOT EVEN THE ANGELS OF THE HEAVEN, BUT MY FATHER ONLY (Matthew 24.36).

Acts 1.7 AND HE SAID TO THEM, “IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW TIMES OR SEASONS WHICH THE FATHER HAS PUT IN HIS OWN AUTHORITY. *8 BUT YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU; AND YOU SHALL BE WITNESSES TO ME IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA, AND TO THE END OF THE EARTH.

Purgatory? Reincarnation? These do not give choice. God gives choice. And for those reporting that they have died, experienced Purgatory, and have come back to life, are not understanding and giving Lord and Savior His PLACE. That bodily organs fail, signaling to doctors and family that a person has “died” is NOT telling WHERE IS SPIRIT? Where is soul? Every living thing both heaven and hell is of some form of spirit. Can a doctor of medicine know where is spirit? Can he know where is the mind or where is the heart of a person with failed vital organs? NO! And this is why no religion, or religious, can say whether a person is saint or not, apart from the ONE. He does not know WHERE is spirit. He can worship in any manner he wants, and call attention to itself, but he cannot know where is spirit, and he cannot determine that man, any man, is responsible for miracles. In truth, this is either created deception, or child’s play.

 

 

 

From The Philokalia, Volume Four … Gregory Palamas:

Brother, do you not recall St Paul’s statements, ‘Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit within us’ (cf. 1 Cor. 6:19), and, ‘We are the house of God (cf. Heb 3.6), as God Himself confirms when He says, ‘ I will dwell in them and walk in them, and I will be their God? (Lev. 26. 12, 2 Cor. 6.16).

Did God specify in this who is the chosen in Him—Man or Woman? For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. Ephesians 5.31 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2.24

I WILL DWELL IN THEM AND WALK IN THEM. Yes, walk … as angelkind (Spirit and Human) on this earth. This would be one IN THE SPIRIT. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. James 4.8. It does not say draw near to (name brand) organized religion or (name brand) religious—no pope, bishop, priest or parson. If you are ONE IN THE SPIRIT, you know IT, and you are known … and you know who is Brother, and who is not. Be careful what you invite into your house.

 

As I stated in the previous essay: DIRECTION AND PROPERTY.

27 FOR AS THE LIGHTENING COMES FROM THE EAST AND FLASHES TO THE WEST, SO ALSO WILL THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. 28 For wherever the carcass is, there the eagles will be gathered together. Matthew

Lightening? Eagles? Carcass?

Lightening … “The saints shall judge the world.”

Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? 1 Corinthians 6.2

Eagles … Prophets on Truth.

Acts 1. 12-17

Carcass …

Ephesians 3. 10

 

And to sum up the Martha-Mary (see previous essay) of God’s Holy Word … Martha symbolizes the Prophet and Mary symbolizes the Mystic. This would be your Lord and Savior (your ears IN eyes … your heart IN mind … your work IN faith) and these must act in accord.

And [this] has everything to do with Spiritual Gift.

 

 

Peace and Love.

    I read an article on this several years ago and was stunned. I am still trying to understand the mentality of this institution. They use the women—encouraging them to have at least FIVE children then, of course, deny them any real future in their institution (because the women are strapped down and saddled with raising, and feeding children). India of all places! Overpopulated and poorly structured. What is their true intent here? Overcrowd to the point of implosion? Who instituted this program? And seriously … does anyone really believe the fifth child will receive that money? Or maybe they only give money to the fifth child if the child is a boy … then offer him the priesthood. Shame-shame-shame-shame …

    Does the Roman Catholic Church ever consider the ramifications of its actions? And now, more poor girls for the demons to rape, abuse, and murder.

    Peace and Love.

    Acts 1.7 AND HE SAID TO THEM, “IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW TIMES OR SEASONS WHICH THE FATHER HAS PUT IN HIS OWN AUTHORITY. *8 BUT YOU SHALL RECEIVE POWER WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS COME UPON YOU; AND YOU SHALL BE WITNESSES TO ME IN JERUSALEM, AND IN ALL JUDEA AND SAMARIA, AND TO THE END OF THE EARTH.

    Good morning …

    “And to the end of the earth.”

    What might this mean? Would this be the Noah story where earth is washed by the flood? Symbolically, the earth is man. Look at the story of Adam and you will see how this is.

    And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Genesis 2.7

    The end of the earth is …

    where it meets the sea?

    The earth is not flat, therefore is a revolving place of perpetual life, in some form. So, one might ask, does man end, or will it be the END OF MANKIND? Certainly, if this were the case … the enemy would be working very hard to keep MANKIND from becoming something other, like, say … Humankind, or Spirit within the One. What is sea then? Where Mankind meets the SEA OF_____.

    John 21
    Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?”
    They answered Him, “No.”
    And He said to them, “Cast the net on the RIGHT side of the boat, and you will find ‘some.’ So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish.

    Peace and Love.

    Hello Alfred,

    RE: While I find the Vatican’s attempts to promote larger families in India to be silly,reckless, shameful, manipulative, and obvious, I do not see the connection between this and the abuse of girls.” That aside, I had a disturbing email in my inbox re: the article below. I have gotten to point where I try to avoid news so much.

    The connection this:

    Often the children are sent out to work because the parents cannot support the larger family. Parents cannot be in two places at once. Who is watching out for these girls? Or, in the case of this girl: Earlier this year, a young girl was gang-raped in a remote village in West Bengal state ON ORDERS FROM TRIBAL VILLAGE ELDERS who objected to her relationship with a Muslim man.

    Larger families means more girls, and with a growing population of Muslims … more girls dating Muslims men, and this is likely to end up with more inhuman behavior.

    Peace and Love.

    In addition, Alfred …

    Re: sexual abuse of children

    The RCC has known for a very long time that sexual abuse of children is a problem in their institution. They have failed to identify its cause, or they know it but refuse to address it in full. This, of course, is also … not new. Those in the operation of this institution do not desire baptism—rebirth. What works within this institution DOES NOT DESIRE RENEWAL. If they did, they would BEHAVE as the disciple rather than acting a part. The disciples turned apostles did not enter into villages paying people to become Roman Catholics; they entered with the COMMAND OF CHRIST: PROCLAIM THE KINGDOM OF GOD. This tells you something about the mind of the “misogynist” … and how it works within the institutional religious. Women can be misogynist, too … this having to do with what they align themselves with—who and what they unite with—how they allow themselves to be used. Why call children to your institution if your institution is unsafe? Why call others to yourself, your institution, your law?

    The command is GOD’s WILL, not institutional bias, or partiality.

    Think on this …

    Would you send your children or grandchildren to a school where there is sexual discrimination, and or neglect? Where those running the operation are unaware of who and what is at work—serving? Why would thousands upon thousands of fatherless bishops, cardinals (even many priests) care about another’s child? They did not even CARE for their own priests!!! They DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF THE PRIESTS WHO SERVE “THEIR” FLOCK!

    They venture out into world affairs, rubbing elbows and bowing and kissing what they call “brothers” in other religions, also SEXUALLY DISCRIMINATING, while their own members struggle—while their own house is ill. This is astoundingly real. And society wallows in the ignorance … unbelievable, but believable … because they are not awake, and the Papal Curia, and those intent on misogyny feed, and fuel in the world.

    Think about this. If you care, and know that the fellow priests, bishops and laity cannot see who or what is bad, or unsafe … why take a chance? Especially in a society (India) where laws are designed to serve a few, and many languish, and perish in their streets—where law is unjust and restricted by religion and merit… Or, if these who saw but did not care about safety of children, but instead, security of position and reputation of institution? Would this not be even worse? To know but have no LOVE? God is not misogynistic nor is He malicious. The question is: What is at work in these institutions claiming His Holy Name?

    The spotlight is hot on the Roman Catholic Church … they wanted the spotlight … they got it. Growing fast and furious through every possibly means, without much concern for behavior—how things are done. Who was overseeing these thousands and thousands of priests, bishops, teachers, popes, cardinals, nuns … through the centuries? Centuries, Alfred, not just one or two decades. Not just in the reformation prodigal … CENTURIES.

    Now, others may look and see what is.

    THE DISCIPLES CALLED FIRST PRAYED FOR ONE TO REPLACE THE ONE WHO WAS LOST … they did not HEAR the name Matthias …

    ACTS 1
    12 Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives, a Sabbath day’s walk[a] from the city. 13 When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying. Those present were Peter, John, James and Andrew; Philip and Thomas, Bartholomew and Matthew; James son of Alphaeus and Simon the Zealot, and Judas son of James. 14 They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.

    15 In those days Peter stood up among the believers (a group numbering about a hundred and twenty) 16 and said, “Brothers and sisters,[b] the Scripture had to be fulfilled in which the Holy Spirit spoke long ago through David concerning Judas, who served as guide for those who arrested Jesus. 17 He was one of our number and shared in our ministry.”

    18 (With the payment he received for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out. 19 Everyone in Jerusalem heard about this, so they called that field in their language Akeldama, that is, Field of Blood.)

    20 “For,” said Peter, “it is written in the Book of Psalms:

    “‘May his place be deserted;
    let there be no one to dwell in it,’[c]
    and,

    “‘May another take his place of leadership.’[d]
    21 Therefore it is necessary to choose one of the men who have been with us the whole time the Lord Jesus was living among us, 22 beginning from John’s baptism to the time when Jesus was taken up from us. For one of these must become a witness with us of his resurrection.”

    23 So they nominated two men: Joseph called Barsabbas (also known as Justus) and Matthias. 24 Then they prayed, “Lord, you know everyone’s heart. Show us which of these two you have chosen 25 to take over this apostolic ministry, which Judas left to go where he belongs.” 26 Then they cast lots, and the lot fell to Matthias; so he was added to the eleven apostles.

    TOGETHER THEY PRAYED … one was chosen. Many are called; but few are chosen.

    Peace and Love.

    You see, Alfred … when you know, and you are given vision, but you say nothing … it means you do not care. I care about the health and well being of the people—all people. I do what I do because I care. I am able to speak, Alfred, because I not only know Love, I know peace.

    “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

    “For the Lord disciplines the one he loves, and chastises every son whom he receives.”

    Peace and Love.
