In one area I am delighted our practice has not caught up with what we preach. It has to do with how we treat others in light of some of the things we have said the Bible teaches.

I am eager to search for truth in the Bible, but I am not all that eager to believe what every Tom, Dick, and Harry says the Bible teaches. For I have heard a lot of harebrained ideas come from the mouths of few Tom’s and Harry’s. Would a false teaching Harry be a Harrytic?

Back to my point. The Bible is a lot like those Rorschach ink blot tests. You show one ink blot to someone and he says it reminds him of a giant panda bear. You show the same ink blot to another person and she says it looks just like the shadow of cloud over a wheat field. One lad went to a shrink who showed him ink blot after ink blot. The kid kept saying they reminded him of pizza. Finally his psychiatrist showed him one more ink blot in desperation. Again the young man said, “It looks like a pepperoni pizza with green olives and mushrooms.” The doctor sighed and said out loud, “You must have a one track mind, son.” To this the lad replied, “Hey, I’m not the one with all the pictures of pizza!” Good point.

Where was I? Oh, yes. Practice. We didn’t practice what we preached all those years of discontent. We circled the ecclesiastical wagons and excluded not only the Indians, but one another as well. Some fellowships claiming to have a genuine interest in unity kept drawing lines of demarcation that excluded so many others that the denominations grew smaller and smaller with more and more litmus tests of fidelity to God. Let me give you a few examples to make myself clear. Some of us claimed to have the exact and proper name for the body of Christ on earth. All others had the wrong names. We asserted that our number and choice of how worship may be rightfully offered to God were straight from the Scriptures, while all the other fellowships were polluted in the proper rituals to include. Oh, yes. We interpreted Scripture correctly. Others did not. We sort of had a monopoly on truth.

How pathetically arrogant! And I guess here is where I sit down on my major point in this little rambling essay. I thank almighty God we behaved better than we wrote in our brotherhood journals and church bulletins. I am glad we acted properly toward our neighbors rather than ranting some of the diatribes fired in staccato fashion from the pulpits of our churches. That we did generally treat people better than we preached is telling. Very telling.

Our behavior, being better than our theology, meant we knew better than to take some of the outrageous stands some of us took. Stands like “you can’t fellowship someone who thinks differently than you on a doctrinal matter.” Or how about “fellowship means endorsement”? Then there is the, often spoken in hushed tones, “We are the only ones going to heaven. All others are either lost or on the verge.”

Be not many of you teachers. Judge not that you not be judged. Stop it. “God forgive us for not practicing what we preached. And thank you for giving us the wisdom to do so. In Jesus’ name. Amen.”

“Let us stop passing judgment on one another” (Romans 14:13).

Mi no have enuff words fi express my gratitude to all a di people dem who come out and support mi birthday party outta Danny’s Marina wah day!

Mi glad bag buss when mi see di people dem who come out fi celebrate wid mi and is a good ting mi mout tan good because wah mount a smile me smile all now mi face tired! It was such a wonderful feeling to see people from all ova Jamaica an di worl come out inna dem finest white an all dem coloured fi mi enjoy mi birthday wid me. Mi haffi say big up to fadda God who mek it possible and of course him gimme the strength to survive all when di dutty heathen dem a try bring mi dung. But chu a inna God me trus an mi know who God bless no man curse dem a talk bout me and mi naa talk bout dem cause mi naa focus pon no locus!

Yuh have sum scumbag mind people who get up everyday and live pon people name and try fi assassinate dem character and always a try fi put the worst first or seek the worst spin pon a good situation. Me is a woman who talk di tings but fair in when I’m doing so. Mi no jus get up a dun people fi no reason and yuh have some toxic people who get up everyday wid dat as dem modus operandi. All when nutten bad no deh deh fi talk bout dem haffi create a story fi validate dem low-bite way of thinking. There is always gonna be people in life that you don’t like cause none a we anno Jesus Christ fi just happy wid everybody all di time … No nail mark no inna none a we hand so it is quiet understandable if yuh no like a person.

My problem is though that most of the time the disdain is coming from a place of misinformation, misperception and just plain bad mind and to how some a dem mind bad di word dem cyaa even join! Nuff time dem see people life and no know nutten at all and sit on the sidelines and judge and di hottest part bout it if yuh know a who an who a talk di tings dem bout yuh sumtime and dem stay bad and how dem life sad yuh woulda haffi jus laugh. Some people no inna no position fi a class and diss because if fi dem skeleton bone dem inna dem closet start rackle is a walking cemetary dem woulda have!

Mout cut cross way so it mek fi talk anyting but the utterances weh sum a dem mek yuh can tell seh a jealousy di way dem can go hard when dem a persecute yuh. But as me seh Jesus walked the earth a sinless man … heal the sick, raise di dead and turn wata into wine and dem still crucify him so who am I? We have a likke dutty hypocrite way inna dah country yah where we stereotype women who have a voice. The moment yuh have a brain and your own way of thinking yuh tend fi be public enemy numer 1!

Everybody cyaa think the same

Everybody cyaa think the same and there are gonna be those persons who come and revolutionise a particular way of thinking.The fact seh me come and seh Fluffy to di worl is a problem to nuff because the fact seh a “fat” woman have the nerve fi put herself together, be vocal, be positive and steadfast an naa watch no face nuff no like dat! The fact seh nuff a dem man neva really like dem from morning and now feel comfortable fi admit seh a fluffy him ting deh a hurt up nuff a dem head!

The fact seh when fluffy woman a step dese days we step wid confidence and assurance mash up dem double standard and upset dem apple-cart! Mi never hear nobody too a lick out when the jokes were always on the “fat one” but how di ting tun up is a problem! Yuh have woman wid weight weh stay bad and yuh have skinny one weh stay bad too! It all boils down to di individual and their self-esteem and self awareness. Sum a dem love talk bout belly an girdle but if yuh have a certain weight belly haffi deh deh an girgle haffi wear das y dem mek dem!

Big up Captain Burrell fi di helicopter and nobodda talk bout mi pilot Captain John Chambers how mi love him bad! Thank you so much. Mommy Winsome from Fashion Fever a million thanks mi frock sell off!

Bunting: Commissioner to account for fatal police shootings

National Security Minister Peter Bunting adressing a Jamaica House press conference on national security recently- Ricardo Makyn/PhotographerDaraine Luton, Senior Staff Reporter

National Security minister Peter Bunting said the Jamaican Government is moving toward implementing a system to ensure the police reduce the number of fatal shootings.

“This administration will be holding the Commissioner of Police, and the High Command, accountable for a reduction of the level of police fatal shootings,” Bunting said today.

He was addressing Parliament by way of a statement.

The minister said his ministry will be holding discussions with the Police Service Commission, the Police Civilian Oversight Authority, the Strategic Review Implementation Committee, and the Police Commissioner to develop appropriate performance measure targets.

Bunting said 56 civilians have been killed by the police in the first three months of this year. The minister said the figure is same as the corresponding period last year and significantly less than the corresponding period for 2010.

“It is very important that the police retain the full confidence of the society that they police, which means that they must be ready to account for their actions to society,” Bunting said.

He added: “Every use of lethal force has to be investigated, explained and justified.”
