Briggs recollected in her landmark 1971 book “Never in Anger,” about how calm and collected everyone was jarcontrast that created against her own unruly emotions. Even when some truly rage-worthy things happened like a teapot falling and smashing against floor the Inuit never betrayed a hint of anger. An “Emotional control is highly valued among Eskimos,” she wrote in the book. Indeed, maintenance of emotions under trying circumstances is essential sign of maturity, of adulthood.” Why so calm, she wondered? And more importantly, how can the rest of us get there? For the answer, Briggs looked to how children responded in difficult circumstances appeared to be something they learned from their parents. An simple parenting technique of Inuit is “Never scold child.” It became clear to Briggs when a young boy threw rock at her, related in a CBC interview, she didn’t berate him angrily, rather told him calmly it hurt. Instead of rage she told him real consequences of his actions caused her pain. Decades later, the writer Michaeleen Doucleff followed in Briggs’ footsteps in visiting Iqaluit, Canada, “in search of parenting wisdom. Said that teaching children to control their emotions is very important she writes in NPR. Doucleff found that a common strand among Inuit parents is: Across the board all mothers mentioned One Golden Rule: Don’t shout or yell at small children.”Among Inuit Arctic community Doucleff found the people practiced the theory that screaming at a child only teaches the child to scream. It is a vicious circle, the University of Pittsburgh researcher Ming-Te Wang noted in a 2013 study. “It is tough call for parents because it goes both ways: the problem behaviours of children create the desire to give harsh verbal discipline. That harsh discipline may push adolescents toward the same problem behaviours.” The Inuit society seems to have learned lessons long ago, and managed to break the cycle. And so “Traditional Inuit parenting incredibly is nurturing, gentle, tender,” as Doucleff writes. “If you took all parenting styles around the world and ranked them by their gentleness, Inuit approach would likely rank near the top.” What kind of children does that society produce? The kind who live harmoniously in world’s harshest climates often with threadbare resources. Survival hinges on making the most efficient use of natural world yet group still manages to be at peace with itself and with others. Maybe that’s because it’s also the kind of society that teaches kindness above all else. Jesus said do not let the sun radiate or set on your anger. Let it go for peace of mind.
Inuit simple way of teaching children to control anger
An arrogant pompous Nebuchadnezzar tried to put himself above God Almighty to try to dominate the whole world and taunted nations. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Assyrians sent messengers to Persia, and to west, Cilicia, Damascus, Lebanon, Antilebanon seacoast nations, Carmel, Gilead, Upper Galilee and great plain of Esdraelon, Samaria, Jordan, Jerusalem, Bethany, Chelous, Kadesh, Egypt Valley, Tahpanhes, Raamses, Goshen, Tanis, Memphis, borders of Ethiopia. They all rejected an order of Nebuchadnezzar to join him in war, not afraid of him as he is only one man. All sent the messengers back empty-handed. Nebuchadnezzar angry, swore by his throne and kingdom he will take revenge on all inhabitants, land of Moab, people of Ammon, Judea, Egypt, two seas coasts. He attacks King Arphaxad in battle, defeated his army, cavalry, chariots, took towns, Ecbatana, captured towers, plundered markets. In mountains of Ragau struck Axpharxes with his spears and returned to Nineveh to rest, feasts one hundred twenty days. Nebuchadnezzar told Holofernes, chief general of his army, “he is the great king lord of the whole earth so he must take strong confident men about a hundred twenty thousand foot soldiers, twelve thousand cavalry to attack surrounding nations. To match into all the land west because they refused to become vassal states. To prepare their land and water as coming in anger to attack them and to cover whole face of earth with the feet of his troops to plunder the nations. To wound and fill ravines, gullies, and swelling river with their dead, or taken captives to the ends of the whole earth. To seize territory for Nebuchadnezzar in advance. They must yield themselves and hold on till the day of punishment. All who resist show no mercy, slaughter and plunder whole region by power of his kingdom. To do so by his authority as commanded to carry out order given without delay. Nebuchadnezzar’s army attacked and plundered and planned next move but warned by Achior not to attack Israel. Holofernes left and took commanders, generals and officers of Assyrian army. One hundred twenty thousand, twelve thousand archers on horseback a great army for a campaign. A vast number of camels and donkeys, mules transport, sheep, oxen, goats for food, and huge amount of gold and silver from royal palace. Set out with whole army ahead of Nebuchadnezzar to cover whole face of earth west with chariots, cavalry, foot soldiers, mixed crowd like swarm of locusts, like dust of earth with countless multitude marched in three days from Nineveh to plain of Bectileth. Camped opposite Bectileth near mountain north of Upper Cilicia. Holofernes and army, ravaged Put, Lud plundered Rassisites, Ishmaelites on border desert south of Chelleans. They follow the Euphrates river through to Mesopotamia and destroyed all fortified towns along brook Abron near the sea. Seized territory of Cilicia, to southern borders of Japheth by Arabia. Surround Midianites, burnt their tents, plundered their sheepfolds. To plain of Damascus during their wheat harvest and burnt fields destroyed flocks, herds, ransacked towns, ravaged lands and young men to sword. Achior is tied to tree for warning Holofernes not to attack Israel is saved. Fear and dread fell on the other people along seacoast of Sidon and Tyre, Sur, Ocina, Jamnia, Azotus and Ascalon who feared Holofernes greatly. The seacoast people and all countryside welcomed him with garlands, dances, tambourines but he demolished all shrines, cut down sacred groves; for he was commissioned to destroy gods of the land so all nations should worship Nebuchadnezzar alone, and all nations and all tribes should call him their god. So he went to Esdraelon, near the Dothan great ridge of Judea to camp between Geba and Scythopolis for a whole month to collect all supplies for his army. Israelites in Judea heard of Holofernes, and greatly terrified at his approach alarmed for Jerusalem and Temple of the LORD God. They recently returned from exile, gathered together the sacred vessels, altar and the temple consecrated after profanation. So they sent word to districts Samaria, to Kona, Beth-horon, Belmain, Jericho, Choba, Aesora, and valley of Salem. They seized all high hilltops and fortified villages on them and stored food in preparation for war since fields were harvested. Then the high priest Joakim in Jerusalem at the time wrote to people of Bethulia and Betomesthaim, near Esdraelon opposite plain near Dothan to seize the mountain passes, since Judea could be invaded.Immediately it was easy to stop anyone who tried to enter, for space too narrow and only two can pass. The Israelites did as ordered by high priest Joakim and the senate of Israel in Jerusalem. Every one Israel cried out to God, humbled themselves with fasting to God. Their wives, children, cattle all resident put sackcloth and prostrated themselves before the temple. They put ashes on their heads, spread sackcloth before the LORD. They draped altar with sackcloth and cried out, praying to God of Israel not to let infants be carried off and their wives taken booty or towns inherited be destroyed, and sanctuary profaned and desecrated by malicious Gentiles. The Lord heard their prayers so had regard for their distress. People fasted so many days in Judea and Jerusalem before the Sanctuary of the LORD Almighty. The high priest Joakim and the priests stood before the Lord and ministered to the LORD in sackcloth, offered burnt, votive or freewill offerings of the people. With ashes on heads cried out to the LORD to have mercy on whole house of Israel. And reports went to Holofernes about Israel fasting and praying to God to be saved from their attacks. Achior the Ammonite said Israel descended from Chaldeans from Mesopotamia because they did not wish to follow the gods of ancestors in Chaldea. So abandoned the ways of their ancestors and worshiped the God of heaven their ancestors drove them from gods so fled to Mesopotamia, and lived there for a long time. God told them to go to the land of Canaan. They settled and grew prosperous in gold and silver and livestock. Famine in the land of Canaan led them to Egypt and a great multitude their race couldn’t be counted so the king of Egypt hostile to them; and exploited and forced them made bricks. They cried to God who afflicted whole Egypt with plagues so Egyptians drove them out. God dried the Red Sea before them and led them by the way of Sinai and Kadesh-barnea. Drove out people of the desert and resided in the land of the Amorites, destroyed all inhabitants of Heshbon; crossed Jordan and possessed all the hill country of Canaanites, the Perizzites, Jebusites, Shechemites, the Gergesites and lived there long time. As long as Israel did not sin against God they prospered for God hates iniquity so us with them. When they departed from Godsway prescribed for them they were defeated in battles and led captives to a foreign land. So temple of their God was razed to the ground, the towns occupied by their enemies. Now they returned to God from those places scattered back to Jerusalem their sanctuary and settled in the hill country uninhabited. So now my master and lord if there is any oversight in this people and they sin against their God and we find out their offense, then we can go up and defeat them. But if not a guilty nation let my lord pass them by; for their LORD their God defends them so we shall become laughingstock of the whole world. Achior’s prophesy not to fight against Israel because God defends them against god of Nebuchadnezzar is ignored, send his forces to destroy them from the face of the earth. Boasted God will not save them as the king’s servants will destroy them as one man. They will not resist the might of their cavalry. So will overwhelm them in the mountains drunk with their blood and fields full of their dead. Their footprints will perish because Nebuchadnezzar is lord of the whole earth. For he has spoken so none of his words will be in vain. Achior, thrown out to hill country and into the town by passes to perish along with Israel. Holofernes spoke that none of his words will fail to come true. Tied Achior to a tree buy saved by Israelites told Israel about plans if their enemies. The people fell down and worshipped God and cried, O Lord God of heaven, see their arrogance, and have pity on our people in humility and look kindly on faces of those who are consecrated to you. They reassured Achior and praised him highly. Uzziah took him from the assembly to his own house and gave a banquet for the elders and all night they called on the God of Israel for help. All the people, young men and women, and children, gathered around Uzziah and rulers of the town cried out with a loud voice, You did great injury not making peace with the Assyrians. We have none to help us; God sold us into their hands, to be thirsty and exhausted. Summon them and surrender the whole town as booty to the army of Holofernes and to all his forces. It is better to be captured slaves, our lives spared, and not witness our little ones dying before our eyes or our wives and children dying. We call heaven, earth and God to our LORD God so prefer to be slaves not defeated. The great lamentation in the assembly and cries to the LORD God with a loud voice, Uzziah said, “Courage, brothers and sisters let us wait five days if LORD God will turn His mercy to us again for He will not forsake us. If these days pass with no help I will do as you say. All the men went up on the walls and towers of their town. Women and children he sent home in great misery.
And when Judith heard it, called rulers of the people said its not right; you swore an oath between God and you to surrender the town to enemies if the LORD does not help in so many days. Who are you to put God to test to set time for God in human affairs do not make LORD our God angry. If he does not choose to help within five days, He has power to protect as He pleases, or destroy in presence of enemies. Don’t try to control purposes of LORD God not like humans won over by pleading. Wait for His deliverance let us call upon Him to help us, and He will hear our voice, if it pleases Him. Tribes that worship God know no other god but Him, so we trust He will not deny our nation. If captured all Judea and sanctuary plundered pays for desecration by blood of slaughtered kindred, land desolate of inheritance He will bring Gentiles to serve as slaves but the Lord God will honour us. Remember Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all tested. In Syrian Mesopotamia, tending the sheep of Laban his mother’s brother Jacob overcame. God didn’t try us with fire as he did to them to search their hearts, nor taken vengeance on us; but the LORD scourges all those close to Him in order to refine them. Uzziah said “All you said is true the people so thirsty compelled us to do what we promised by oath we cannot break. Since you are a God-fearing woman, pray for us, so the LORD to send rain to fill our cisterns so we no longer feel faint from thirst. So Judith said, “I will do something that will go down through all generations of our descendants. Stand at the town gate tonight so I may go out with my maid; within days you promised to surrender the town to our enemies, the LORD will deliver Israel by my hand. Do not try to find out what I will do for I will not tell you until I finish what I am going to do. And Judith prostrated herself, put ashes on her head, uncovered sackcloth she was wearing. At the very time when the evening incense was being offered in the house of God in Jerusalem. Judith cried out to the LORD with a loud voice and said, LORD God take revenge on strangers who tore virgin’s clothing to defile, expose to shame, pollute their womb to disgrace. You gave rulers to be killed and their beds shamed by deceits practiced stain with blood, struck slaves and princes on thrones. You gave their wives, daughters into captivity and all booty divided. Your beloved children call on you for help O God hear widow. Only you know your ways in advance. Assyrians increase force, proud of their horses, riders, boast in strength of their foot soldiers, trust in shield and spear, bow and sling. They do not know you are the LORD God who crushes wars the LORD God Jehovah Almighty is your Name. Break their strength by your MIGHT and bring down their power in your anger, they defile sanctuary and pollute tabernacle of your Glory, break off horns of altar by sword look at their pride send your wrath on their heads. Give to me a widow, strong hand to do what I plan. By deceit of my lips strike them down and crush their arrogance by hand of woman. Your Strength does not depend on numbers your MIGHT is Powerful. You are the God of the lowly, helper of oppressed, upholder of weak, protector of forsaken, saviour of those without hope. Please, God of my father, God of Israel, LORD of heaven and earth, Creator of the waters, King of all creation hear prayers. Bruise those who plan evil things against your Covenant, and your Sacred House Mount Zion to save your Children and whole nation. Let tribes know and understand you are God of all Power and might and there is no other God who Protects the people of Israel but you Alone. Judith embarks on her secret seductive mission to destroy the plans of Holofernes. Judith gets him too drunk for intimacy decapitates head to defeat Nebuchadnezzar army. Judith is celebrated as a Jewish woman who saved her people from the tyranny of Holofernes. Achior becomes proselyte in the house of Israel because of his true testimony of God and he risked his life to save Israel. So God let Achior into the house of Israel used by God to stop the destruction of Israel by Holofernes. A pagan Ammonite and chief leaders of all the Ammonites had wisdom and knowledge so understands the authority and power of Jehovah. He narrated the history of Israel and their victory won through Almighty God. So a vassal state citizen is used here to warn Holofernes who rejected good advise. It is God who decides those worthy of His salvation among the Gentiles. Achior is converted in the light of God as other righteous Gentiles of the bible. Achior is a genuine convert who witnessed the miracle power of God’s Divine move to save Israel through Judith a God fearing widow. God allows time of the Gentile to precede Israelites to provoke them to jealousy. Achior is symbolic invitation to all nations to convert for all the gentiles are included in the grand scheme plans of God to come to faith in God of Israel.
Paedophiles from word paedophilia in Greek παῖς, παιδός (paîs, paidós) means “child”and φιλία (philía) “friendly love” or “friendship.” Paedophile is a pervert with exclusive sexual interest in young children aged 15 or younger. Abuser misconstrues it as ‘love’ to rape children but its lust not love. A sexually abused child is innocent, too young, too naive, incapable of understanding the emotional damage consequences of abuser’s mind control manipulations. Stockholm syndrome grooming uses lies to deceive child as, “special” “chosen” told “family does” not love them by rogue priests or bishops and cardinals sworn to secrecy. Church goers molested by their trust in them to invest in their faith in God. The child rapist takes advantage of genuine agape love of the innocent children who don’t know about adult sexual abuse. In the name of “love” paedophiles wrongly think its “childlove.” Word Paedo, ‘child’ + philos ‘love’ is sexual abuse disguised as ‘love’ camouflages masquerading adult embedded in family wedged between innocent children and family. Pervert seduces children by stirring an unsuspecting sexual feeling preserved for adult legal age for sex. This addictive attachment misleads the child to “fall in love” with predator for abuse. Child lacks frontal brain cortex of logical reasoning skill to understand the risk or the full consequences of their actions. They mimic their molestor deceiving them and infused by distorted perception of “love” makes the innocent child loyal to the predator. But does not realise the deception is not normal. Join with impudence in secrecy of ignorance as it appears normalised by interaction in family feel guilty by association to let go of abuser. Truly think they “love” abuser but the child is unaware of damage so defends abuser even more seemingly ‘loved’ and adored by them and others. Abuser uses fear tactics and tears to lure a child to sympathise influencing their thought process by brainwashing. Their “love” is overshadowed by denial to protect each other from a perceived threat of society to ruin their exclusive ‘love’ attachment. Genuine, natural, caring agape affection of children is sound foundation of God’s LOVE but the pervert takes advantage of them. An innocent child is ignorant of sex, unaware of motives of child rapists. God’s LOVE if practiced in truth without perversion is the best gift child receives to grow in confidence and thrive. Sadly innocent naive child thinks their love is based on equal, sincere affection. They assume abuser’s exclusive love for them is unique, so special but ‘love’ interest is for sexual abuse. They exploit innocent children who know nothing about sex but love attention. Leads to intimacy as misled for selfish sexual gratification by abuser. Genuine love of child perceived by distorted twisted pervert as ‘consent’ for sex but its mere normal interaction of family. The caring, loving parent has implicit trust so expects genuine mutual affection of others for their children. Their sincere loving care is duly entrusted to ensure due diligence in the best interest of their child. But the dark web of sexual abuse predators use pornography, undermine seriousness of rape. The trivial attitude towards sexual abuse competition to exchange gross or daring inappropriate photos of sexual abuse perpetrates it.Fear of being exposed or consequences of declaring their evil actions makes an abuser to place guilt on the child to hide their evil deeds. But its a bad move to blackmail the child with the burden of secrets to hold the child to ransom by manipulations. This is a complex web of mixed messages of lust misinterpreted to the child as “love.” And so the children become emotionally attached to adult perpetrators as “good people” who ‘love’ them. Exclusive negative attention to them makes them think they are, “one and only one” in a perverts life unaware other children are told exact same lies to keep hold on them all. Pervert abuses children by their cunning brainwashing power of control due to the insecurity of their mind so not a mutual relationship of two consenting adults. The legal age requires minimum age of consent for sex between adults depending on a country. The child does not know laws forbid sex between adult and children under legal age. The legal sexual age for consent is 18 years in other countries 21 years. Then 5 years old girl is youngest mother in Guinness book of record to get pregnant is reason campaigners of sex education start from five years in primary schools to warn children about sexual abuse. So those children sexually molested knew nothing about sex or the grooming by a pervert who raped them. Adults force a child to keep their ‘little dirt secret’ because they know they will be jailed for raping children but a child must not carry burden of brainwashing.Its important to train the child to wash their own private body parts by three years old. Not touched inappropriately, and to teach them not to be in bedroom, bathroom, anywhere alone without the parent present. They deceive the child to deny allegation but they still continue perversion. The innocent child does not understand impact of abuse until after adulthood. Reed tells the BBC, he hopes his film makes all parents to think twice before entrusting child to strangers and make people think twice about idolising cult of celebrity.” Prepare children not to keep secrets or be a favourite special secret friend no matter how famous or generous. And Reed said, “Celebrity cult is so pernicious and leads people to go blind and parents to do stupid things,” says Dan Reed, the director of the new Michael Jackson documentary. Parents do not know motive of pervert so avoid even the appearance of evil entrusting your child to nobody. Be ruthless not to compromise control of your child by an expensive gifts to distract them from an alertness and their sharp focus. Abuse has occurred hundreds of hundreds of times to Mr Robson and Mr Safechuck as agreed in this case. Mr Robson told the programme: “Every time I was with him, every time I stayed the night with him, he abused me.” Jackson fondled him, “touching my entire body,” made him watch the singer performing a sex act, he said. And then, when he was 14, Jackson had tried to rape him. That was one of the last sexual abuse experiences we had,” Mr Robson told programme.Leaving Neverland, Wade Robson here says Jackson sexually abused him in the 1990s Jackson groomed him to believe they “loved each other as God approves how we show our love” he said. So why use “Jesus juice” laced by alcohol or God knows what, to influence their minds. A True love is public agreement including public approval by loved ones. Anyone taking advantage to rape a child knows they are breaking the law so conceal it. But deceives children to think they love them above all else in the world. “And then he would immediately follow-up with, ‘But If anybody else ever found out what we are doing, you and I would go to jail for the rest of our lives and our lives would fall apart,’ he so I would fall apart,” Mr Robson told programme. “All of this was terrifying to me. “The idea of being pulled away from Michael – this man, this other-worldly figure, this god to me who had become my best friend – no way was I going to do anything that would pull me away from him.” And Mr Robson said Jackson told him “I was his best friend and the only person he ever done these sexual acts with.” Out of all the boys in the world was chosen one, I thought,” he said. Mr Safechuck told the programme his abuse had begun with Jackson teaching him how to perform a sex act, at the age of 10. “Then you start French kissing he said taught him to do that,” Mr Safechuck said. Was followed by further abuse and other sex acts.Mr Safechuck told the program Jackson abused him over a sustained period of time because he successfully groomed his parents. There was a long grooming process where Michael inserts himself into your family and becomes a part of your family,” he said. “It takes him a while to build up the trust so it doesn’t happen overnight.” And he then “makes a wedge between you and your parents to isolate you from everybody else.”
“At the same time when you’re being abused also a part of you is dying,” Mr Safechuck added. Mr Robson described Jackson as a “master manipulator.” He had driven “this wedge between myself and my father, and my mother and my father” to make it easier for the abuse to occur, he told the programme. He also said part of responsibility for the abuse should fall “at the door of other people, all the employees around Michael and me and James [Safechuck] all the time who looked the other way.”‘Very innocent’ Is the response, Michael Jackson’s brothers Tito, Marlon, Jackie, and nephew Taj Jackson who reject the claims in Leaving Neverland broadcast in UK the singer abused children. Taj said his uncle’s behaviour seems odd to some is “very innocent,” adding: “its his naivety that was his downfall.” Marlon said, “not one piece of evidence” backs up allegations. Michael Jackson’s estate, said Mr Robson and Mr Safechuck had previously “testified under oath these events never occurred.” “They provided no independent evidence or absolutely no proof in support of their accusations, which means entire film hinges solely on the word of two perjurers,” it said. A crime of raping children is punished In prison and after release their identity is hidden from the public who may attack or want to kill them. In prison are killed by offenders because it’s most heinous crime against innocent vulnerable child. This is why abuser refuses to admit guilt to the public because they know it will destroy their reputation and relationships with friends and family. They lose status and are hated for molesting children, it is so difficult for sexual predators to admit guilt. Their distorted perception makes them feel rape is justified as a mutual “consent” by the child they raped. Their attitude is, by the parents allowing them to be with child it means they approved of their actions. Why would the grown adult would want to rape a child in the name of love. This is gross misconduct and lack of understanding of purpose of sexual intimacy in the context of loving relationship. The mutual consent of two people without substance abuse to bend the mind of vulnerable victims. The law forbids predators from forcing sex upon others without their permission. But the problem is predators do not understand the rights of other people. So they think they can have whatever they want any time whenever they want. They do not genuinely care about victims as long their selfish pervert actions take place. No pervert admits abuse unless caught red handed so its impossible to witness a concealed sexual abuse hidden from view. Those defending perverts have no clues about that side of their personality so shocked to hear of the horrific rapes by them. The victim is victimized too for daring to speak their truth so refuses to put perpetrators behind bars. They feel guilty for betraying sexual escapades in which they partook. Fearful, ashamed of their reputation being tarnished and unfairly wrongly judged as liars with an agenda of looking for money. Often too embarrassed to reveal the abuse, people do not understand the emotional abuse, nightmares haunting survivors for the rest of their lives. No amount of money of their instigators’ compensation can wipe out trauma of sexual abuse which affects marriage relationship intimacy in adulthood. Perpetrators do not know or realise they upset too many people so their damage destroys the life of victims and families including the perpetrator’s loved ones. This does not mean victims to be prevented from educating others to warn them to be more careful in life. Its wise to seek forgiveness on behalf of loved ones for inner healing and peace.Joyce Meyer, Oprah Winfrey and Maya Angelo, Billy Connelly and Dame Esther Rantzen, all spoke about their sexual abuses suffered, as she revealed for the first time in 2011, publicly talk about it and still manage to be successful in life. Don’t let abuse define your life to hurt yourself. Genesis 34:34 tells of the rape Dinah Jacob’s only daughter to visit Canaanite women. And Shechem son of Hamor, the Hivite and chief of region, saw her and raped her…Prince Shechem disgraced Dinah and Jacob’s sons killed Shechem and whole village for revenge. Shechem wants to marry Dinah, whole village told to circumcise to marry her. The circumcision ploy demobilised the village tricked for Dinah’s violation and brothers Simeon and Levi’s killed men. These brother’s extreme measures for vengeance for their sister Dinah’s rape is done by some people who practice it. The damage done by rape is violation of human rights and emotional damage is a lifetime of trauma. Be aware of consequences of pain for whole familyIn 2 Samuel 13-20, Amnon son of David raped his half-sister Tamar a virgin and Absalom’s sister. She said, do not force me; for such a thing is not done in Israel; do not do anything so vile. But he did not listen to her and stronger than her forced her and raped her. Absalom told Tamar, be quiet do not take it to heart…Tamar remained a desolate woman in brother Absalom’s house in 2 Samuel 13:11-12, 14, 20. Absalom later killed Ammon in revenge. In the past victims told to keep abuse secret because nobody will marry her and it brought shame to the family. In talk show TD Jake’s of Potters House said sexual abuse is so rampart that the question is there anyone not sexually abused? It shows many people dealing with rape and healing comes in Christ Jesus who came to heal broken heated. The Spirit of the LORD God is upon me, because the LORD anointed me and sent me to bring Good News to the oppressed, to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and release prisoners to provide for those who mourn in Zion to give them joy for ashes, oil of gladness for mourning, praise for the fainthearted. Are oaks of righteousness planted by the LORD to display HIS GLORY says Isaiah 61:1, 3. Survivors of rape sexual abuse carry wounds into adulthood but Jesus Christ heals the wounded. Isaiah 61:1,3 brings transformation healing through Redeemer Jesus Christ. God heals so breaks silence with HIS Light of hope to be joyful in life again in Jesus Name.

Victoria Derbyshire program interview of Wade Robson and James Safechuck from 10:00 GMT on BBC News Channel in the UK.
Faith does the works of God in practical ways by applying theology to help others. And Jesus said whoever feeds or gives a coat, provides shelter or gives drink to the least in His Name is a sheep in His Kingdom. Faith in action works if the gospel preached with loving care to the people. Some think doing works of God earns ‘salvation’ some believers do not show kindness, compassion for fear of displeasing God become Scrooge. Justify lack of compassion by excuse is “works” but is this thinking correct? God commands farmers to leave edges of harvest for the poor and travellers to collect and eat for free. Other people help by donating to charity for good causes. But debate comes up because generosity to the stranger or others seen as lazy parasite. Some use excuse of sponsoring bad habit substance abuse, addiction to alcohol or drugs as reasons not to give. Situations of the homeless approaching others for help is considered an offence to beg so most turn to other ways to get funds but risk their lives. Many people refuse to give them support except to help themselves. In Bible on numerous occasions Jesus preached and taught the multitudes, He fed them. As gap widens between rich and the poor qualified but unemployed without wages on the zero hour contract life is difficult for them. Some are trained as back up emergency stand by staff to fill in for absent staff on vacation, sick or on maternity leave. Tied to company, cannot seek other jobs in the interim, with bills to pay and rent arrears while employers raise their own salaries and bonuses. So the question is how to reach out to help others without judging them. This debate between faith as God works of salvation and salvation based on faith alone exists for centuries.The Bible speaks volumes on this topic of salvation good works. Interpretation or proper understanding these passages is vital to our relationship with the Lord and relationship with others. Search for answers to this question in God’s Word says “Know, O foolish man faith without works is dead. Abraham our father was justified by faith works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar. So faith works together with GOD WORKS by works so faith is made perfect. A man is justified by works not by faith only says James 2:20, 22, 24.” Passage in James 2 proves faith alone is not good enough; we must demonstrate good works of salvation. It seems James is not teaching as Paul said salvation of faith alone in Romans 5:1. Time and time again, Paul says works cannot save but faith is knowing Lord Jesus as our Saviour. “For by Grace you are saved through faith not yourselves; so the GIFT of God not by works so none should boast in Ephesians 2:8-9.” James 2 in full context, is not telling us to earn salvation but confirms that good works helps prove we are really true believers. “Faith by itself works is dead. Show me faith without works and I will show you faith by works in James 2:17-18.” When we accept Christ as our Saviour, there is immediate change. A sinner is immediately forgiven, washed clean of sin and restored to a right relationship with the Lord. No fear of consequences of sin because fully justified in His eyes; covered by the blood of Jesus Christ and His SACRIFICE on the cross. The old self dies to become a new creation says 2 Corinthians 5;17.We are sanctified by blood of Jesus daily by process of constant learning to grow on faith journey. Cultivating the fruits of the spirit in Galatians 5:22-23 in serving God. And 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 reveals the intricacy of Body of Christ working together by love to bring Him Glory and share His Love and Truth in the world. Kindness, compassion and our love to others promotes work based salvation. Jesus moved with compassion in His ministry by His example so expects His followers to do so. Matthew 9:36; 14:14; Philippians 2:1-8; Ephesians 4:32 says be kind and loving to others as Jesus did to those around Him and even those who hated Him. Help and serve others but be not absorbed in works with improper motive. Not a people-pleaser by nature constantly looking for others to praise for good things done to get rewards. Jesus sees through ego or pride to earn His good favour by doing good things to others. Developing fruits of kindness and love is Godly works in life. Keeping the heart in check to ensure right motives to serve others. Knowing these things helps to save us so extremely important. The rich man in Bible missed heaven for mistreating Lazarus. God discerns the intentions of the heart and readily help us approach HIM in humility with desire to grow in faith. By our love others know we are Christians as the words of John 13:35 show, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another.” It is a great reminder of the responsibility to love others the way God LOVES us. God is LOVE so whoever lives in love lives in God and God in them …We love because Jesus first Loved us,” in 1 John 4:16, 19. God’s LOVE is unconditional, endless so let’s rest in God’s amazing LOVE and extend love to our spouses, kids, friends and strangers in need of kind words or help. In Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and Earth shall pass away but MY WORDS Shall Not pass away. Psalms 119:11, “YOUR WORD I have I hidden in my heart so I will not sin against God and Joseph refused to sin against God. In Psalms 12:6, “The WORDS of the LORD are Pure Words, as silver is tried in furnace of Earth is Purified Seven Times.”Psalms 19:14 says “Let the WORDS of our mouth meditations of our Heart be acceptable in YOUR Sight O LORD Our Strength, and OUR Redeemer in Jesus Name. And Psalms 119:105 says “YOUR WORD is a Lamp unto my feet and Light to my Path!!! THANK YOU OUR FATHER LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. Thank you Son Lord Jesus and thank you Holy Spirit in helping us to love another in Jesus Name.
