Happy Easter! He Lives!

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 31, 2013

Today is the day Christians all over the world celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead after His sacrificial and atoning death on the cross on the day we honor as Good Friday because of the significance of His death.   After two nights in Paradise,  He rose on the third day, making it possible for all who believe in Him to have eternal life.

After His Resurrection, Jesus remained on Earth for 40 days before ascending into Heaven.  He appeared to His disciples and to other followers during that time.  Men like the Apostle Peter who had abandoned Him during His trial were emboldened to risk death and persecution to carry the gospel throughout the known world.  At the end of the 40 days, Jesus ascended to Heaven and now sits at the right hand of His Father.  (See here for a detailed explanation of the Trinity.  I think one of the simplest analogies is that when God made us in His image, He gave us a body, soul, and spirit, yet we are one person.)

Christians believe that Jesus will return to Earth to fight the final battle against the nations that rise against Israel and will then reign on Earth for 1000 years before the final Judgment.  Before that time, we believe that all true believers in Christ, both living and dead, will be caught up to Heaven.  Many believe that we are close to that time for which Christians for centuries have waited in hope.  Jesus spoke in detail of the end times in Matthew 14.   He said that those who endure until the end shall be saved.

We at SPIB want to wish all of our readers and friends a very happy and blessed Easter.  May we remember  that He is with us in the good times and in the tough times and that even as the world around us seems to be coming apart at the seams, He is still in control. Hebrews 13:15.

HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE!

Happy Good Friday! As Christians everywhere today remember Jesus’ words that “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends,” we also recognize the intrinsic value and dignity of all innocent human life — life so precious that God’s only Son offered Himself up to redeem us. As Bristol noted in her recent blog post (linked below), we just recognized World Down Syndrome Day, and days like that remind me of the great blessing God has given our family in our little boy Trig, who has taught me in a special way how precious all innocent life is. Happy Easter weekend!

Erick Wemple: Sarah Palin turns tables on media in new video

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 28, 2013

Sarah Palin

Erik Wemple writes at the Washington Post:

After Sarah Palin departed Fox News earlier this year, the Erik Wemple Blog noted: “She still has Facebook!

Not to mention video of a giant, roaring bear. That awesome footage caps off a fabulously produced promotion for SarahPAC, which is “dedicated to building America’s future by supporting fresh ideas and candidates who share our vision for reform and innovation.”

And eat your hearts out, Palin detractors. (Full disclosure: Judging from previous posts, yours truly probably counts as one.) The woman whose every stump speech cites the distortions, lies and treachery of the mainstream media turns the tables on its nemeses in this video. Among the outlets from which the video pulls Palin-supporting material in this video are: CNN, BuzzFeed, About.com, Politico, MSNBC, Wall Street Journal, The Daily Best, Fox News and Salon. Nicely played, governor.

Rabbi Hirschfield: Things to Know About Passover

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 26, 2013

Passover 2013 started last night at sunset and will last until next Tuesday at sunset as Jews around the world celebrate the Exodus from Egypt when God delivered them out of slavery.  It is also a celebration of the Passover meal the Israelites ate at God’s instruction the night of the 10th Plague, when Jewish lives were spared when the Death Angel passed over Jewish homes where the blood of a sacrificial lamb was applied to the door.

We at SPIB want to wish all of our Jewish friends and others who celebrate Passover and its significance a very blessed Passover experience.  Chag Sameach.

FOX News had posted an excellent video and article by Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, in which he explains the meaning of Passover and the traditions practiced during its celebration.  Here are excerpts from his article, which you can read here.

1. When does Passover 2013 begin and how long does it last?

Passover 2013 begins at sundown on Monday, March 25th. That is the date, this  year, which corresponds to the 15th of Nissan, the day according to  the Bible, on which the first Passover occurred and on which all subsequent  Passovers always begin.

The holiday lasts for 7 days in Israel and 8 days everywhere else, reflecting  a long-held custom honoring the fact that maintaining an accurate liturgical  calendar far from Israel, where Jewish religious authority was centered in  ancient times, was not so simple.  It’s a “belt and suspenders approach”, designed to make sure nobody fails to observe the holiday on the appropriate  day.

2. What is Passover all about, and is it the same as Pesach?

Passover and Pesach are the same thing. One is simply English and the other  is Hebrew. In either case, it is the holiday celebrating the Exodus of the  ancient Israelites from their slavery in Egypt.

Simply put, like America itself, Passover is about  freedom.

The specific “passing over” for which the holiday is named refers to the way  in which God passed over, or protected, the homes of the Israelites during the  night they prepared to begin their journey into freedom.

3. Why is Passover the Most Celebrated Jewish holiday in America?

Simply put, like America itself, Passover is about freedom.  It  celebrates the eternal quest for human dignity and the freedom which is perhaps  the greatest expression of that dignity.

Nowhere, and at no time, in 3,000 years of Jewish history have Jews known the  kind of centuries-long freedom and security which are the American Jewish  experience. The Passover story of freedom — of the journey from oppression to  opportunity — is also the American story at its best, not just for Jews but for  all people, and it rings deeply true when it is told at Seder tables across this  nation.

[…]

8. Is Passover Only for Jews?

Definitely not!  While Passover marks the birth of the Jewish people as  a free nation, it speaks to the larger human impulse to be free, and that is why  so many people, both Jewish and not, celebrate the holiday.

In addition to the large number of Jewish families which either include  non-Jewish members or welcome non-Jewish guests to their own Passover  celebrations, increasing numbers of Christian communities celebrate their own  Seders, emulating what must have been an important part of Jesus’ life  experience in the first century.

9. Was the Last Supper a Seder?

The Last Supper is often explained, based on the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and  Luke, as having been a Passover Seder. Certainly the time of year at which Jesus  came to Jerusalem fits, and the communal meal at which he gathered his disciples  is suggestive of something like a Seder, with ritualized eating, drinking and  teaching through conversation. Of course, those are also regular features of any  classically Jewish meal of religious import. Also, according to the Book of  John, the Last Supper was the day before Passover.

Scholars can continue to fight this out, but one thing is clear: both the  Last Supper and the Seder point to the power of celebrating one’s most deeply  held values in the presence of those about whom we care, and in the context of a  freely offered table.

10. How are Passover and Easter related?

While the tradition of calculating the date of Easter based on the date of  Passover ended many centuries ago, the holidays share some very deep truths of  which all people can avail themselves. Who doesn’t need to be reminded that  however dark life may be, that however cold and lifeless the winter has been,  the promise of spring, and the possibility of rebirth and renewal is always  there?

Whether discovered in the story of a nation making the journey from Abraham’s  early successes to the Israelites’ slavery and subsequent redemption, or in the  story of one who lives, dies and is born again, we must all celebrate that life  holds more possibility and potential than we first imagine — that there is  reason for hope, and that in celebrating triumphs of hope from the past, we can  unleash new stories of hope in the present and in the future.

11. Passover and Our Founding Fathers

The Exodus from Egypt was central in the minds of the new United  States’ Founding Fathers.  When Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and  John Adams gathered to create a seal for our nation, Franklin chose a  design of Moses extending his hand over the Red Sea, thereby overwhelming  Pharaoh who is sitting in an open chariot, a crown on his head and a sword in  his hand.  Rays in the clouds were drawn as reaching out to Moses,  expressing that he acted by command of God.  The motto included was:  “Rebellion To Tyrants Is Obedience To God,” which was later adopted by Jefferson  as his personal motto.

12. Moses Was A Hero to the Pilgrims

Moses was an American hero long before there was a United States of America.  The Pilgrims described themselves as the chosen people fleeing their own  pharaoh, King James. When they set sail on The Mayflower in 1620, they carried  Bibles emblazoned with Moses leading the Israelites to freedom.  Then as  now, they found themselves in the story of leaving Egypt.

13. What the Word Egypt Really Means and Why It Matters for All of  Us

Egypt is not “Egypt” in the Bible. In the original Hebrew, it is called “Mitzrayim”, which means tight places. To be in Mitzrayim/Egypt is not simply to  be a slave in a story from long ago. It is the paradigmatic experience of  being stuck between a rock and a hard place – an experience which virtually all  people have at some point in our lives.

Passover reminds all people that while getting jammed up can, and likely  will, happen to each of us, there is always the possibility of redemption and  release. Whoever you are, and whatever faith you follow, Passover invites  us to take stock of where we are stuck, and seek the help we need to get  un-stuck.  That we will ultimately be successful is the eternal promise of  Passover.
Rabbi Brad Hirschfield is the author of “You Don’t Have to Be Wrong for Me to  Be Right: Finding Faith Without Fanaticism,” and president of Clal-The National  Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership.

Palin: Best Wishes for Passover

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 25, 2013

star-of-david-necklaceAs Jews begin to celebrate Passover and Christians celebrate Holy Week, Sarah Palin posted the following message of “good wishes” to her Facebook page:

Todd and I and our family send our best wishes this evening as Jewish people around the world celebrate Passover, commemorating their deliverance from bondage and their Exodus to the Land of Israel. This timeless and beautiful story reminds us of the universal human aspiration for freedom and that the Almighty hears the cries of a suffering people and fulfills His promises. Chag kasher V’Sameach. Happy Passover. And next year in Jerusalem.

And yesterday, Palm Sunday, was the beginning of the holiest of weeks for Christians. During this time, we honor the sacrifice of Jesus, reflect on amazing grace, and celebrate resurrection power!

“And many spread their garments in the way: and others cut down branches off the trees, and strawed them in the way. And they that went before, and they that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna; Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord: Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest.” –Mark 11:8-10

Palin: What is America’s Leadership Thinking?

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 23, 2013

 

In response to the above video where President Obama poorly attempts to compare the relationship of the USA and Canada to that of Israel and Palestine, Sarah Palin posted the following to her Facebook page:

Regarding this comparison, is he thinking it’s America or Canada that would be lobbing mortars across the other’s border to strike fear and kill innocents? And is he thinking that America is compared to Israel or Palestine? Or is it Canada that’s more like Israel or Palestine? Really, friends, if anyone else, ANYWHERE, had made such a claim, that person would be skewered and pilloried forever. Again, what is America’s leadership thinking?

Palin: Pray for Peace in the Holy Land

Posted by Jackie Siciliano on March 22, 2013

Israel_PalinTrip

Posted to Palin’s Facebook page earlier today:

As always, one must listen carefully to what leadership says, or fails to say, in analyzing current affairs. During his trip to Israel, President Obama said, “It is not fair that a Palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of her own.” Of course, as people of good will we would like everyone to have the right of self-determination and God-given liberty, but we also have to ask ourselves what has been done to establish the circumstances necessary for that. It’s been observed that a Palestinian child cannot grow up “in a state of her own” because of Palestinian leaders’ decisions.

There seems to be nothing on the horizon to change the mindset of those who would raise Palestinian children to hate and be intolerant of Jews, Christians, and other “infidels.” Bottom line: until that changes and until the Palestinian people become genuine partners in peace with Israel, little movement towards peace can be made. This is tragic for all, including those Palestinian children being indoctrinated. I hope our President understands this and could acknowledge it so the public could better understand the conflict. We can’t be naive to the causes of this centuries-old plight, and we mustn’t fail to ignore the one-sided effort to finally bring peace to Israel.

In the meantime, pray for peace in the Holy Land.

Gov. Palin agrees with Mark Levin’s remarks about Reid’s political posturing over Marines’ deaths

Posted by Dr. Fay on March 21, 2013

Tweeted by Governor Palin last night:

[tweet https://twitter.com/SarahPalinUSA/status/314489543145431040 align=’center’ width=’450]

The link she tweeted was to this article at Breitbart News:

by BREITBART NEWS 20 Mar 2013

Conservative radio host Mark Levin has slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) for implying on Tuesday that the deaths of seven U.S. Marines in a training accident in Nevada was the result of budget cuts in the sequester that began on March 1.

“Harry Reid, you’re the lowest of the low-lives, you know that? You really are at the bottom of the sewer, all the time on every issue….We deserve better than this man. He is a vicious stupid man,” Levin said on Tuesday.

In a statement on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Reid had implied that the sequester was to blame for the deaths, which were caused by a mortar explosion: “These men and women, our Marines were training there in Hawthorne. And with this sequester, it’s going to cut back this stuff. I just hope everyone understands the sacrifices made by our military.”

The Marine Corps attacked Reid’s remark, saying that the Majority Leader was guilty of “political posturing on the backs of those dead Marines.”

[…]

The sequester was included in the Budget Control Act of 2011 at the behest of the Obama White House.
