Kindly Share This Story: By Simon Ifeanyi Ezeh First: Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world but how exactly does he do that? How and why is Jesus Christ our only Saviour and Lord? He takes away sins by revealing to mankind that God is our Father (nobody knew this prior to his incarnation – Jn 17) who is merciful and forgiving; declaring that man also has the power to forgive sins just like God (Matt 6:14,15; Jn20:23). As the Messiah, he brought forgiveness of sin down to the realm of men so that man could and should forgive whenever he is offended. This way, Jesus Christ takes away the sin of anyone who asks for God’s mercy and forgiveness as far as the petitioner forgives his offender(s) as well. This petitioner forgives his offenders and God forgives him – this is the mercy principle. So, Jesus Christ sorted out the sin problem at both levels: at the level of God and at the level of man. He solved the sin question … [Read more...] about Jesus Christ wasn’t a sacrifice for sin, don’t be misled!
If you want to get a gander as to where our narcissistic, snowflake culture is at these days, actress Kelly Marie Tran just scored a full-blown Hollywood Reporter cover story for — get this — “surviving” mean tweets. You remember Kelly Marie Tran, the poor woman stuck with that awful Rose Tico role in 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Rose Tico is not Tran’s fault. She didn’t create that dreadful, humorless, self-righteous character. Nor is it her fault that director Rian Johnson thought it would be appealing to have her spend the entire movie walking around with a smug face — a face that would be deemed “punchable” on a man. Nevertheless, the unfair world being what it is, she was still hit with some of the blowback, and now we’re being asked to celebrate her fearlessness for “surviving” mean tweets. Here are some lowlights in an article titled: “The Resurrection of Kelly Marie Tran: On Surviving ‘Star Wars’ Bullying, the Pressures of Representation, and ‘Raya and the … [Read more...] about Nolte: Rich, Privileged Kelly Marie Tran Hailed for ‘Surviving’ Mean Tweets
As we get closer and closer to the release of Captain America: Civil War , rumors have been flying about which characters will survive, and which ones will die at the end of this superhero extravaganza. Last month, directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo appeared at a convention with star Frank Grillo , who joked that he would "love" to kill Captain America ( Chris Evans ).

Today we have a new, unconfirmed report from Geek.com , which sheds some new light on the film's epic climax. There will be potential SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk. Much like several other unconfirmed reports over the past few months, this story claims that Captain America will in fact die in Captain America: Civil War , but they also claim to know who kills him.

Vaccine passports – the future?, illustration photo, source: internet At the end of December, thousands of Europeans received the first doses of the Pfizer-BioNtech COVID-19 vaccine after the company received authorisation in the EU. Since then, other countries such as the US, Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, India, and several Asian countries, including Vietnam, have also started to receive or order vaccines to prepare for mass vaccination programmes. This has awakened optimism about an end to the pandemic and the idea of a vaccine passport. A heated discussion Some parts of the world, such as the Seychelles, Cyprus, and Romania, have begun to remove quarantine requirements for visitors who have been vaccinated. In early January, Denmark also announced that it would issue vaccine passports to citizens within the next three to four months. To get digital vaccine passports, Danish citizens will have to declare their medical and vaccination status on a government-issued app. … [Read more...] about Vaccine passports – the future?

Do you miss the retro old days of an ultra-simple Finder experience on the Macintosh? You know, way back in System 6 and System 7, when there was no visual complexity to the user interface of Finder, no myriad of features, it was just a simple file system browser. Yearn no more, because you can get that super simple Classic Macintosh Finder experience right now on MacOS and Mac OS X! Well, sort of anyway. Classic Mac Finder is a fun open source project that aims to recreate the classic Macintosh System Finder experience for modern Mac OS system software releases.

Classic Mac Finder runs like any other app (as does the modern Finder … [Read more...] about Get Retro with a Classic Mac Finder Clone for Modern MacOS
At 13 episodes, you can finish the first season of Orange Is the New Black in less than 24 hours — and we recommend that you do watch at some point, if not all in one day. Orange Is the New Black is about a fictional women's correctional facility, and as Netflix 's fifth original content series, it delivers on what Netflix has been promising all along: a new kind of show that thrives under the streaming programming model rather than being compromised by it. When Netflix decided to release its original programming en masse — entire seasons in one fell swoop — it also claimed that doing so was part of a mission to change the way we watch television . This claim has not quite held up. While no one argued that the now Emmy-nominated House of Cards had the makings of a cable hit, it also looked a lot like programming we’d seen before on HBO , Showtime and AMC . And though creator Mitch Hurwitz intended for the fourth season of Arrested Development to be watchable … [Read more...] about ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Is the Series Netflix Was Made For

Bombastic impresario Allan Carr threw the Hollywood parties that defined the 1970s. Image: IStock via AFP Los Angeles, United States – Warner Bros. has announced plans for a $100 million cable car to take tourists from its studio lot to the iconic Hollywood sign, an area increasingly choked by tourist traffic. The company, one of Tinseltown’s “Big Six” film distributors, told city officials on Monday it would put up the entire funding for the “Hollywood Skyway.” The six-minute ride would extend more than 1.6 kilometers from Warner’s base in Burbank up Mount Lee to a visitor center near the sign, with pathways to a viewing area, according to the Los Angeles Times. The iconic studio behind “Casablanca” and “Gone with the Wind” didn’t respond to AFP’s request for comment but circulated a statement saying the project would “reduce street congestion, improve safety, and ease neighborhood frustrations.” “Given our close proximity to the north side of the Hollywood sign, we believe … [Read more...] about Warner Bros. plans $100-M cable car project to Hollywood sign
