After the final destruction of Jerusalem and Judea by the Romans in 135 AD, the Jerusalem church was taken over by non-Jews. From this destruction, Eusebius says: "In this way the city was closed to the Jewish Race and suffered the total destruction of its former inhabitants, it was colonized by an alien race, and the Roman city which subsequently arose changed its name in honor of the emperor then reigning" (S., Acharya 37-8). The First Ecumenical Council of the Catholic Church was held in...

I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, in the town of Watts. In regards to the Black/Mestizo situation, I've noticed a few things: When Mestizos are a very small minority in a predominantly Black area, no one pays them any mind. In fact, many of the middle aged and older Black women will often be very friendly, and be a little sympathetic b/c the Mestizos (in this phase) are usually very poor, have many children, and don't speak English. This is my experience, so I don't want to...

"In the novel Kindred, we find a similarly conflicted character whose concerns are less alien: A time-traveling black writer from the 1970s must ensure her existence by encouraging her female ancestor, a slave in the antebellum South, to bear the child of her white master."

soul-doctor, You really do need to improve your understanding of the language you use. "Evangelist" is not just one who prosyletizes to Christianity, but rather one who preaches a truth to get people to change their minds about it.

This word is pronounced "hyu-an-GEL-ee-on") which means, "good news" or "glad tidings." Anyone who pronounces good...
