Judas is one of the most infamous figures in the Bible. His crime is considered by Christians as the most grievous of them all: the betrayal of the Son of God Himself. Judas Iscariot has forever been maligned by all of Christendom, but is this dubious reputation at all deserved? Should the supposedly treasonous apostle be held accountable for something that was meant to happen? http://www.makeahistory.com/index.php/recent-news/403-judas-be-forgivenJudas is one of the most infamous figures in the Bible.

The high school that was set to host DMX's "gospel rap extravaganza" this weekend has reportedly canceled the show due to the rapper's involvement with the fundraiser.
According to reports, the church that was producing the event plans to reschedule at another venue.
Arizona's Independence High School -- who were to host the performance -- backed out, after they realized X was involved. Morning Star Sanctified Church's Pastor King says that they had everything set to go, even taking out a $1 million insurance policy, but the school just didn't want to move foward after finding out who the performer was. Independence High School has already agreed to refund the church's $500 deposit, and now the church will have to refund money to fans who already purchased tickets. However, King says they plan to reschedule the concert. (BallerStatus)
Reports on the concert circulated online earlier this week.
TMZ has learned the oft-incarcerated rapper, real name Earl Simmons, agreed to perform at the Morning Star Sanctified Church for a fundraiser this Saturday -- and he's doing it for free. According to Pastor Barbara King, DMX and his family have been members of the congregation for eight months now and he really wanted to help raise money for repairs. We're told the school holding the event is amping up security because they're unsure of what kind of crowd the convicted felon will draw. Tickets are going from $35-$40 a pop. FYI -- We're also told DMX doesn't swear anymore ... so we have absolutely no idea what he's going to perform. (TMZ)
While locked up in an Arizona prison last year on animal cruelty charges, X said he planned to take a more religious route upon his departure.
"I'm gonna start a TV show while I'm in here, 'Pain and Perseverance.' It's about how I can reach people the average person can't reach because I'm grounded," he said in a January 2009 interview. "And then I'm going to give my first sermon in church, that's gonna be like, incredible for me. I have actually just completed a gospel album. On every one of my albums, there's been a gospel song and a prayer and of course with the image, they never made those into singles, except for my sixth album. They did "Lord Give Me A Sign" as a single." (Fox 10 News)
After his release in May 2009, X spoke on being influenced by God to better his ways.
"I feel great man, I feel good man," X said over the phone. "Doing a lot of praying, lot of people been praying for me. Wanna thank everybody praying for me, all the prayers worked. Yeah man, get back to this music thing. The movies, I got the industry waiting right now. But I gotta say it's through the grace of God that I made it through this thing, because I've been to jail before, jail ain't really nothing, but here in Arizona is a whole 'nother situation man. They feed you two times a day, they got you wearing stripes in pink. It's reckless man. I did some soul searching when I was in there, I actually read the whole Bible when I was in jail." ("Strawberry In The Morning")

August 15 marks the end of the Blessed Virgin Mary's earthly life and the assumption of her body and soul into heaven.
We all have read about the many sightings of the Holy Mother over the years, but what do you do when an image of her miraculously appears in a glass you once used for coffee? Share it with others!
With the recent downturn in the economy many of us are in need of a miracle. Then again, we're always in need of miracles, or at least in need of proof that miracles are possible. What is a miracle?
Many people that have seen this glass in person, have described themselves as getting chills and having the hair on the back of their necks stand up. Others have commented on the bluish hue (aura) that can be clearly seen surrounding the image.

"For many Christians, the life of Jesus signifies the birth of a new kind of God, a God of universal love. The Hebrew Bible—the “Old Testament”—chronicled a God who was sometimes belligerent (espousing the slaughter of infidels), unabashedly nationalist (pro-Israel, you might say), and often harsh toward even his most favored nation. Then Jesus came along and set a different tone. As depicted in the Gospels, Jesus exhorted followers to extend charity across ethnic bounds, as in the parable of the good Samaritan, and even to love their enemies. He told them to turn the other cheek, said the meek would inherit the Earth, and warned against self-righteousness (“let he who is without sin cast the first stone”). Even while on the cross, he found compassion for his persecutors: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
But there’s a funny thing about these admirable utterances: none of them appears in the book of Mark, which was written before the other Gospels and which most New Testament scholars now consider the most reliable (or, as some would put it, the least unreliable) Gospel guide to Jesus’ life. The Jesus in Mark, far from calmly forgiving his killers, seems surprised by the Crucifixion and hardly sanguine about it (“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”). In Mark, there is no Sermon on the Mount, and so no Beatitudes, and there is no good Samaritan; Jesus’ most salient comment on ethnic relations is to compare a woman to a dog because she isn’t from Israel.
Why would some scholars downplay the earliest description of Jesus in favor of accounts compiled after there had been more time for myth to accumulate? In part, maybe, because some of them are Christians, or at least lapsed Christians who still resonate to their native faith. But in part, also, because it’s not obvious why a whole mythology about a “good” Jesus would have taken shape decades after the Crucifixion. What, after all, would have inspired early followers of Jesus to invent the idea of a brotherhood that knows no ethnic or national bounds?
Clues have been emerging in recent years, but not clues of the usual kind—not long-lost scrolls or other ancient artifacts. The clues come from the modern world, and they’re all around us. It’s increasingly apparent how analogous a globalizing world is to the environment in which Christianity took shape after Jesus’ death. And in this light, it makes sense that early devotees of the crucified Jesus would develop the now-familiar Christian message, which could later be attributed to Jesus himself.
Now, as we approach the global level of social organization—and see the social order threatened by strife among the Abrahamic religions (Christianity, Judaism, Islam) —another burst of moral progress is needed. Success is hardly guaranteed, but at least the early history of Christianity and indeed of all Abrahamic faiths gives cause for hope. However bleak a globalizing world may look at times, the story could still have a happy ending, an ending that brings out the best in religion as religion brings out the best in people.""For many Christians, the life of Jesus signifies the birth of a new kind of God,... more
"This Easter weekend, tens of thousands of Christians across the country will turn out for Passion plays, dramatic portrayals focusing on the last week of the life of Jesus Christ. Many are tiny church pageants with casts of 12 disciples, a Jesus of Nazareth, and perhaps a couple of Roman centurions, all wearing bed sheets with nylon ropes tied around their waists. Others, such as the musical Tetelestai in Columbus, Ohio, and the Topeka Passion Play in Kansas, are semiprofessional events that hosting churches have perfected over the course of multiyear runs. But the most well-attended are Bible spectaculars that would make Cecil B. DeMille swoon, featuring immense casts and crews who pull off gritty depictions of first-century capital punishment and Vegas-y musical numbers.
Like The Passion of the Christ, these productions (most of which predate Mel Gibson's film) focus on the severity of Jesus' suffering in death. The moments of beating and crucifixion are sparse in the Gospel accounts, but modern Passion plays match our culture's taste for visual realism. The audience viscerally experiences each of the 39 lashes delivered onto Jesus' body and each of the four stakes driven into his limbs. Christians have long dwelled on the details of the suffering of Christ, but with today's theater techniques, nothing has to be left to the imagination.
there are also other Jesus stories to tell—including the ones Jesus shared. One famous Gospel phrase is (in the Latin Vulgate) compelle intrare, meaning "compel them to come in." The words come from a stirring parable Jesus told about a rich man who sends invitations for a fabulous dinner party, only to have no one accept. So the rich man has his servants round up "the poor and crippled and blind and lame," ending his pronouncement with a rhetorical flourish: "Compel them to come in." (St. Augustine co-opted the phrase, making it a theological basis for state-sponsored acts against heretics.)
It's Easter. Spring is here, though the calendar doesn't quite match the weather in many places. With the fast of Lent over, churches hoping to share their beliefs could take Jesus' parable as a suggestion: Throw a dinner. Make it lavish. "Go out to the highways and the hedges," as the rich man said, and invite the poor, the crippled, the blind, the lame. What kind of story would that tell?""This Easter weekend, tens of thousands of Christians across the country will... more
