Ia€™m nursing three glasses of Marsala in La Sirena Ubriaca, a€?The Drunken Siren,a€? a wine bar in the port town of Marsala on Sicilya€™s western tip. My hata€™s off to wine-shop owner Salvatore Ruccione, whose enthusiasm for Marsala compelled him to create this chart (which really is quite helpful). Woodhouse suspected this complex wine would fit like a fine leather glove in the cultivated parlors of England where Port, Madeira, and Sherry were all the rage.
Other Englishmen followed: Corlett, Wood, Payne, Hoppes, and most importantly, Benjamin Ingham and his nephew Joseph Whitaker, who began exporting Marsala beyond Europe.
It was during this period that Marco De Bartoli entered the fray, an artisan David among industrial Goliaths determined to resurrect Marsalaa€™s tarnished reputation. THERE’S no doubt that our approach to ageing and the way we look has changed in recent years. Dr Aamer Khan, 46, and Lesley Reynolds Khan, 52, are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to winning the war against wrinkles. The couple have a long list of celebrity clients, including glamorous actress Stephanie Beacham, who has had facials and peels, TV’s Ulrika Jonsson and The Bill actress Lucy Speed. The Khans have been at the forefront of cutting-edge treatments since meeting at a medical conference 10 years ago and setting up the Medical Skin Clinic in 2006. Aamer, who has trained in dermatology, surgery, psychiatry and psychology, is determined to help patients look as good as they can.
Despite tending to the beauty needs of the stars, some of the couple’s proudest achievements come from being able to change the lives of ordinary patients suffering with severe skin conditions. Lesley smiles as she shows off pictures of a young woman whose life was blighted by severe acne. Aamer is equally excited about the case of a young man whose confidence was at rock bottom because of facial scarring.
The procedure uses fat and stem cells from areas such as the bottom, hips or stomach to fill out and re-contour sunken areas of the face and rejuvenate the skin. Walking into the Medical Skin Clinic feels like dropping in on friends for a cup of tea and it is this welcoming atmosphere that ensures so many patients return time and again.
One procedure, the Azzalure Lift, has been dubbed the 15-minute facelift and is a knife-free method of lifting and tightening skin. What is clear is that the Khans take anti-ageing very seriously and are determined to lead the way in helping everybody be happier, healthier and of course better looking. Dawsonrentals is one of the UK’s largest CV rental firms, and one of the few to offer the full range of vehicles from vans to trucks and trailers and the full range of services from daily rental to contract hire and leasing. Garnet inherited pretty much the same vocal instrument and wrote songs with a wider variety of themes. Garneta€™s mother and father came from Nova Scotia, but moved to Hamilton, Ontario to find work.
After Stan was signed by RCA records to do some novelty singles and they went nowhere, he moved to London, Ontario, which was closer to Garnet. During the last two years of high school, Garnet was part of a strange, interesting concept. Garnet sprinkles his between-song patter with stories and cutting, wry humor that audiences carry home and share with others. Garneta€™s story is so rich and hea€™s such a great musician (his blues fingerpicking on a€?Corrine, Corrinaa€? might be the best Ia€™ve ever heard) that this article should span two issues.
Garnet told me, a€?I got Stana€™s secondhand guitar when he got a decent one.a€? When Garnet was about 12, Stan gave him a Mississippi John Hurt LP for Christmas. John Woodhouse, a merchant from Liverpool, was sailing to Mazara del Vallo on Sicilya€™s southern shore when a sudden scirocco storm forced him to seek refuge in the port of Marsala. These fortified wines came from what the British called a€?the sun belta€?a€” the Mediterranean region extending from Portugal to Turkeya€”and Sicily was smack in the middle. Vicenzo Florio outgrew them all, with a fleet of 99 ships exporting Marsala to points around the globe.
Old dusty bottles were occasionally brought out of kitchen cupboards to make chicken marsala or zabaglione, but Marsalaa€™s illustrious status as a meditation wine was gone with the wind. Hea€™d spent the previous decade in the family business, growing grapes to sell to Marsala firms Pellegrino and Mirabella. Concentrated but dry, blended in soleras, and aged an average of 20 years, Vecchio Samperi is truly a meditation wine, a siren song that pulls you in deep through waves of nut, caramel, dried fruit, and sherry-like oxidative notes. Like its name implies, ita€™s virgin wine, with nothing added but neutral grape spirit, whose magic comes from long aging in wood.
De Bartoli has taken the lead in privileging grillo, grown in Sicily since Phoenician times.
Sweeter than a Vergine, with a luscious caramel, dried apricot, marmalade, and nut character, this wine has been fortified with mistella from insolia must and acquavite, then aged 10 years, versus the required 4. While Fine is fine for cooking, it takes years, even decades, to achieve a truly elegant meditation wine, one whose concentrated flavors come from slow evaporation and oxidation in casks, followed by further mellowing in barrique. Now two of Britain’s top cosmetic and skincare specialists are on hand to help Daily Express readers. The dynamic husband and wife duo, who are based in London’s prestigious Harley Street, know all there is to know about turning back the clock. They have also carried out house visits for scores of A-list names in need of emergency treatment before a red carpet appearance.
Solutions offered range from pigmentation correction and acne treatment to breast augmentations and knife-free facelifts.
His skin has been transformed using a pioneering stem-cell treatment called Stem Cellution.
This substance is used to rebuild and contour the facial structures including muscles, soft tissues and fat pads.” Aamer is the first doctor to offer this treatment in the UK. However the Khans could not be more welcoming and do not make any snap judgments about treatments. Lesley says: “The other day a potential client contacted us and told us she was not happy with her Botox because she could still move her face. Aamer says: “A series of carefully placed injections of a refined neurotoxin similar to Botox is used. At the Khans’ clinic men are queueing up for a treatment called BodyTite that helps remove fat from the chest. For almost every surgical procedure there is a non-invasive option which means no downtime, minimal discomfort and a fraction of the cost of cosmetic surgery.

Her kitchen sink, located directly over the cafea€™s stage, allowed her to put a hose from the sink into a hole in the floor and send a torrent of water onto performers during their show.
They were fans of country and folk music and, as youngsters, had listened to Carter Family broadcasts from a powerful border station in Mexico during the a€™30s.
He had wanted to learn the building blocks of playing the flute and learn how to read music, so he briefly attended a class in 10th grade for that purpose.
A great believer in playing out, he stated, a€?You can spend three hours practicing scales by yourself and youa€™re not really learning; but if you spend ten minutes on stage wondering where all those notes are and how youa€™re going to make them count, thata€™s a much better way of learning an instrument. Garnet started commuting every weekend because there was a club there that he liked, Smalea€™s Pace. The next morning he hitchhiked up to northern Ontario where the band was and found the tour bus. Guys came to the bars to get drunk, not to listen to sensitive guitar players singing about life.
As Garnet stated elsewhere: a€?The Maritime traditional sound we developed was a response to partly the market and partly simply due to the commissions we were given by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. All three band members had planned to go home on the same flight, but only Stan wanted to stay the extra few days after the festival. At the Cabin Concert he told about how he began talking onstage about getting sober, soon after his three days of cold turkey in a motel room. They were fans of country and folk music and, as youngsters, had listened to Carter Family broadcasts from a powerful border station in Mexico during the a€™30s.A  Garnet and his older brother Stan grew up in Woodburn, a community in the easternmost part of Hamilton.
Ita€™s reacting to a chart titled a€?29 Expressions of a Unique Wine,a€? which parses Marsala into its various categories. Look for De Bartolia€™s Vecchio Samperi, Pellegrinoa€™s Marsala Vergine Soleras Secco, or Florioa€™s Marsala Superiore VecchioFlorio Secco.
While there, he and his men dined at an osteria that served up its best special-occasion wine.
Like Vecchio Samperi, it uses the soleras system, as does another favorite of mine, Pellegrinoa€™s Marsala Vergine Soleras Secco.
As well as anti-ageing skincare ranges there are an ever-increasing number of high-tech treatments available that promise to banish lines and wrinkles.
In their new column starting next week they will lift the lid on the latest procedures and answer your questions on anti-ageing and looking good. What I didna€™t know was that the day of the show, Ia€™d be fielding anxious messages from Garnet, left on the cafea€™s phone answering machine throughout the day. On two occasions I had run to the basement during a show to shut off the buildinga€™s water main. At any given hour, youa€™d hear Frank Zappa, Duke Ellington, Phil Ochsa€¦ Frank Zappa would be on for an interview, then theya€™d play Schoenberg a€¦ no rhyme or reason, no sense to anything a€¦ it was just music. By 16, whenever Stan had a local gig, Ia€™d sit in for a bit if it wasna€™t a school night.
Being large men, they got used to the idea that theya€™d have to fight to play their music.
We did a lot of soundtrack work for radio dramas and a lot of it was in Halifax.a€? From that point forward, Stana€™s reputation grew as the six albums produced during his lifetime were released.
Along with the grind of the road, Garnet had to process the loss of his brother and his brothera€™s growing legend. Wea€™ll simply have to implore our readers to see Garnet live and buy every album hea€™s released. This will teach you how to fingerpick.a€? Garnet recalled, a€?I remember sitting on the front step one afternoon.
Thata€™s right; 29 permutations, stacked in a multicolored pyramid, with age on the ascending side, color on the base, and sweetness levels wedged in between.
Called il perpetuum, it was named after an aging process that involve a perpetual replenishing of wine in large wooden casks.
When his father sent word that this Marsala was a smashing success, Woodhouse created a commercial operation, buying vineyards and farms in the countryside, anda€”like the British shippers of Port in Oportoa€”building an aging lodge near the Marsala port for easy shipping to England. Although boiled must was banished from most Marsalas, at least 1 percent is still required in the amber versions of Fine, Superiore, and Superiore Reservaa€”an industry shortcut to the rich hue and caramelized flavors that come with long cask aging. His first wine, called Vecchio Samperi, had more in common with the original perpetuum wine than Woodhousea€™s fortified Marsala, let alone the mass-produced Marsalas of the 1970s.
Add the words a€?Reservaa€? and a€?Stravecchio,a€? and that doubles the aging minimum, from 5 years to 10. Unlike Vergine, which is always dry, Marsala Superiore can range in sweetness, so check the label for secco (dry), semisecco (off-dry), or dolce (sweet). We do treatments gradually over a sensible period of time.” The Khans offer a comprehensive approach to anti-ageing focusing on cutting-edge, non-invasive treatments.


In the current economic climate, when many people are battling to keep hold of their jobs, this isn’t an option. By this time, most fans in our little circle knew about Garneta€™s brother, the iconic Stan Rogers, and his tragic early passing. He didna€™t know that we were completely volunteer-run and truly manned only on evenings when shows were scheduled. However, our neighbor was softening, aware that Ia€™d been working on the ceiling, trying to remedy the situation. Garnet likes to say, only half-facetiously, that theya€™d have to fight their way on-stage, off-stage and back to the hotel and that they developed a middle set that was nothing but sea chanteys which left their hands free to defend themselves.
Garnet was already home when a television news broadcast told about the flash fire that trapped Stan during an emergency landing, killing him presumably of smoke inhalation.
The temptation of drinking that often follows many a solo touring musician was actually a continuation of his time with Stan.
He added: a€?After I quit, I got a letter from [Scotch whiskey manufacturer] Glenfiddich, asking, Was it something we said?a€™a€™ These days, he also reads from the memoir hea€™s working on of his days with Stan.
Garnet was already home when a television news broadcast told about the flash fire that trapped Stan during an emergency landing, killing him presumablyA  of smoke inhalation.
Leta€™s repeat: Age (Fine = 1 year, Superiore = 2 years, Superiore Reserve = 4 years, Vergine = 5 years, Vergine Reserve = 10 years). That barrel is replenished with younger wine from the barrel above, and so on, with the brand-new vintage added to the top row. By 1900, 40 firms were supplying the world with what was then the most famous of all Italian wines.
Stan had written elegiac songs about the working class in the Canadian Maritimes and farms, and had a rich, deep baritone. Wondering why nobody was there to answer the phone, he repeated his concern with each message, as to whether there would actually be a show. Taking no chances, though, without saying anything to Garnet, I grabbed $40 from our bank and ran upstairs. I finally got it and my mom came out and said a€?ita€™s dinner time.a€™ I said, a€?I cana€™t come in. It was the very same plane Garnet had flown home a couple of days earlier.A  a€?It could have been any one or all of us,a€? Garnet told me. The cask is then topped off with new wine, and so it continues over the years, creating a blend of multiple vintages within one cask.
But it also had no added alcohol, achieving 18% just through a combination of well-ripened grapes and evaporation in the soleras circle. De Bartoli also pioneered grillo as a dry white table wine, kicking off a trend in Sicily with his crisp and lovely Grappoli del Grilloa€”a welcome trend, given the islanda€™s abundance of seafood. As he approached from somewhere north, the sound of his voice got more and more agitated as he got closer and closer.
We had two drummers, two bass players, a sitar player a€¦ For Goda€™s sake, we had an interpretive dancer at the side of the stage who wore black tights and whiteface.a€? Garnet was part of the band and played local gigs, but still in high school, he couldna€™t do road dates. On the first album I bought, Speaking Softly in the Dark (1988), Garnet comes as close as Ia€™ve heard him sound like Stan, on a€?Like a Diamond Ring,a€? by his friend, Steve Hayes, one of the number of songs by other songwriters. In an email, he described how one story got this response: a€?[folksinger] Steve Gillette came up to me after a show and told me he enjoyed the reading but now had a very curious nine-year-old grandson who wanted to know what kind of person a a€?drag queena€™ was, and just what was a a€?hand joba€™? As a result, Vecchio Samperi falls outside the DOC rules, which require fortification, even for Vergine; thata€™s why you dona€™t see the word a€?Marsalaa€? on the Vecchio Samperi label. Canadian icon Garnet Rogers is singing his song, a€?Night Drive,a€? about a dream of his brother Stan, who perished years before.
He wasna€™t leaving a phone number, so I believe he was using pay phones en route and there was no way for me to reassure him. But as codified in the 1969 regulations, Marsala producers could also use mosto cotto, or unfermented grape must boiled down to a concentrate to increase potential alcohol, as well as sifone, or must from late-harvest grapes whose sweetness was fixed by the addition of alcohol. Must have been a fun drive homea€¦a€? We heard the story referred to at the Cabin Concert, but I wona€™t reveal the details and spoil the fun for future audience members. I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky.
Both bolstered sweetness and color, but could also dilute the essential character of the wine. Garnet was his typically majestic self, filling the room with sounds the walls had never felt before.
We decided to become a trio and actually rehearse and work at what we were doing.a€? Early on Stan was still finding his style.
Of the four albums Garnet sent me, I like the studio albums, Firefly (2001) and Shining Thing (2004), the best.
He used to speak more about his vehicles (a€?The Stealth Volvoa€?), but that was absent during the last swing.
On one side, Ia€™d be working on a painting a€” I fancied myself a painter a€” and when I got so far on the painting that I couldna€™t work on it anymore, Ia€™d turn around.
He had come fully into his own by the time of these albumsa€™ releases, settling into a muscular, chesty vocal sound, and had long begun building his own storehouse of songs. I went online for one of these older stories: a€?Two years ago after wearing out four Volvos I got to the point where I didna€™t want to support my mechanica€™s extravagant lifestyle,a€? he said, without even a hint of a chuckle.
15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful.
He has outrun sorrows in his life and he sees the ridiculous in everyday existence a€” mainly in his life.
A new dilemma revealed itself as he continued to carry more guitars in, followed by electric amps that made him look like a one-man Pink Floyd tribute act. With a now-familiar self-deprecation, he said, a€?Yeah, after I got over my hissy fit.a€? Years later, we had a chat before he did a Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors concert and I told him about that night and the woman above the cafe.
One night he returned with this weird look in his eyes like Charlton Heston as Moses with his hair turned white, coming down from the mountain. He said, a€?a€¦Wilson Pickett just wrote The Ten Commandments with his finger!a€™ Stan was in a little rhythm and blues band when he was in high school.
Garnet described how they would travel the Yellowhead Highway in Saskatchewan, in a tricked-out van that wore out four engines.
Then Ia€™d add a second guitar track, or later on when I picked up flute and violin [he earned the money and bought them], add one of those. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner. I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it. I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered. I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed. We offer our customers a better age profile of equipment so the vehicles aren't breaking down. Some of our competitors have got their own workshops and it's cheaper for them to repair the vehicles.
He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom.
We couldn't run an old fleet of trucks and make money.” Dawson has a long-standing relationship with Mercedes-Benz on both trucks and vans, though it also buys from MAN and Volvo. A  I learned something from every man I met or exchanged emails with, and Lou taught me a few words in Spanish.A  Ole! It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm. What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm.
Since the coming out of the recession, the pallet networks are very much in vogue so curtainsider rigids are in big demand.
But having the two changes a year has actually flattened that out quite significantly for us.
Kendall===============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop June 12, 2010. We can take a little walk, maybe get our feet wet, and then lie on a blanket and listen to the waves. Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self. I do the same thing myself, when the mood strikes.A  And how about this for being an "in tune with women" kinda guy?A  A few days after I had ordered myself 2 new green dresses and several in black to add to my collection from a mail order company named Newport News, he sent an email asking:A  "So, what are you wearing right now? We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people. With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love. The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men.
They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text).
Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation. A  For Christ Sake!!A  How about saving the Taxpayers a buck?A  In addition to that $6 million you've already blown by hovering and covering me, and scheduling a proper Face to Base meeting in your office; at my convenience? This isn't something we've done because this customer has come to us and asked for this truck. We saw last year that we were able to demonstrate pretty significant fuel savings and the operational shift to Euro-6 wasn't as big as people thought.” While Euro-6 trucks have proved more fuel efficient than their predecessors, they do cost Dawson more to buy and maintain.
We were given prices of anything from ?6,000 to ?12,000 for a new system but then some people are saying they can change the cartridge for ?1,200. But on the long-run vehicles that are doing lots of miles they've not missed a beat.” Purchase prices are at least 10% higher on Euro-6, according to Miller. From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar. If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups.
Dramatic, but no drama.A  Short black skirt, or long black dress?A  Heels or boots?A  Camo, or commando? Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate. People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters.
People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations.
If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back.


If we can buy 500 vehicles at the right price, and we don't want to increase the fleet size by 500, we've got to sell an amount of vehicles. We like buying things.” Fletcher expects his truck fleet to grow steadily in 2015 as the market improves.
There's a rule of thumb that leasing, rental and contract hire grow slightly faster than the rate of economic growth. Whether it will be as much as 10% I doubt, but it will not be far off that.” If making money from tractor unit hire can be difficult, renting trailers is even tougher, with cripplingly low rates blighting the sector for the past decade.
Until then, as in the end,there is much more to come.A A A  Once Upon a Time, a little mushroom popped through the moss covered ground of the Southeast Alaska Rainforest. Trying to gauge what is going to happen to a trailer you buy today in seven or eight years' time is really difficult.
He buys a used 2006 trailer for ?3,000 or ?4,000 and if it makes ?70 or ?80 a week, he's probably quite happy with that. He's not had to put any money into compliance systems or overhead, the people, the training, all the other things that we do.” Fletcher would like to buy all British trailers, but he concedes “it's not always the best solution for us”, and Dawson remains a big customer of French fridge trailer builder Chereau.

I'll say Chereau are the only manufacturer that can deliver a trailer for a 10-year life in a rental fleet.” Dawson argued strongly that the trial of longer semi-trailers should have been open to the hire companies, but the DfT ignored their approach.
Needless to say, we didn't get much traction with this.” Dawson has however invested heavily in doubledeck trailers, taking delivery of its first refrigerated unit back in 2000 and now having over 600 on the fleet. That's whether it's dry freight or refrigerated.” While the rates for doubledecks are better than for vanilla single deck curtainsiders, they are expensive to buy and maintain.
The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings. The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking.
Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?. He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season.
He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict. The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways.

Now we could take on any size of fleet.” As on the truck side, Dawson will be an early adopter of Euro-6 when it comes into force for light commercials. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time. If you think about lot of big companies like construction firms and utilities, or the Royal Mail, that run fleets in the UK, it's not their core business activity. Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?.
You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart. This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future. If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better.
And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers. We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms. Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010.
Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done. So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship. Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god. Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother. That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself. Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped. If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us. Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father?
People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment.
God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on. The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit. We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people.
That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦.
Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to). Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith?
Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment.
Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person. Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment.
If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow.
