Many famous people wear the cross around their necks or tattoo it somewhere on their body but do not glorify God in their body. Let's not do the same.
What does the Cross mean exactly?
"...without the shedding of blood, there is no remission (forgiveness) of sins."
Only by the shed blood of Jesus Christ does ANYONE have remission for their sins. There's no other way to the Father but by Him. EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES in Him shall never perish but have eternal life. (Note that it doesn't say EVERYONE in general, but EVERYONE WHO BELIVES and repents.
In this clip from Hell's Bells 2 by Eric Holmberg and The Apologetics Group, the issue of how the Cross is portrayed in modern society versus what it truly means is exposited. You can get the full DVD at the Apologetics Group's Official Website http://www.theapologeticsgroup.com .

"It has now been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that the collapse of the twin towers and WTC 7 was an act of deliberate arson and not as a result of fires from crashing planes.
"Jones' evidence offers no other conclusion that insiders planted thermite devices within the buildings to literally pulverize the supporting columns and cause the collapse of the towers and also WTC 7. Debunkers have uniformly failed to address the existence of thermite and also molten metal at the ground zero site because they cannot dismiss the scientific proof, and are forced to resort to ad hominem insults and smears.
"We are issuing a challenge to Popular Mechanics to rebut Professor Jones' analysis of the sphere samples and the clear evidence of thermate at the World Trade Center. Address the focused scientific proof without resorting to ad hominem attacks or straying off topic."

"President Bush signed an agreement creating a 'permanent body' that commits the U.S. to 'deeper transatlantic economic integration,' without ratification by the Senate as a treaty or passage by Congress as a law.
The 'Transatlantic Economic Integration' between the U.S. and the European Union was signed April 30 at the White House by Bush, German Chancellor Angela Merkel – the current president of the European Council – and European Commission President José Manuel Barroso.
The document acknowledges 'the transatlantic economy remains at the forefront of globalization' arguing that the U.S. and the European Union 'seek to strengthen transatlantic economic integration.'

"Highly offensive R-rated films like BORAT and JACKASS: NUMBER 2 had low budgets and large returns this year, but they are exceptions. The big story on R-rated movies is that while production remains nearly the same, market share continues to drop. The more good quality G, PG and PG-13 product being offered, the more the R-rated market suffers. Foreign car makers gained American market share because their cars were seen as better quality. The key to achieving high market share in the motion picture industry is to make quality entertainment that appeals to a broad audience. The real magic happens when people are entertained enough to pay more than once to see the same movie.
"R ratings cut the broadness of the audience even if the quality of the movie is excellent. Many appeal only to small audience segments. This is particularly true of independent art house movies aimed at homosexuals, extreme liberals and other small groups. Many of these movies are made by activists for activists with little regard for profit."

"In contrast, gays already are a formidable force in the legal arena and courts are often extremely deferential to their cases. Additional protection for gays is not necessary. This legislation will not just over-protect them, it will bring the threat of invasive, governmental interference with the doctrines and practice of the Church. We have faced the removal of crosses and commandments from every public facility; this same pressure could be felt within the four walls of the church."

"The AC360 piece covers the murder of Israel Ramirez, a bodyguard for the rap star Busta Rhymes, who was gunned down last year. There were more than 20 people who witnessed the murder, including Busta Rhymes, and no one has come forward, according to New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who said that some who were interviewed simply said that 'I have to work in this business' as a reason for not speaking to police. Of course that’s nothing new, since neither the murders of Tupac Shakur (1996) and the Notorious B.I.G. (1997) are also unsolved because of a lack of people willing to come forward.
"Cooper interviewed a group of inner city teens and pre-teens about 'snitching' and you see the depth of the problem, the unbelieveable cultural reinforcement that allows the lawlessness to continue. Police brutality, the lack of response when police are called, the clear gulf of opportunity between rich and poor have all contributed to the creation of this toxic social stew."

"Asserts the moderate-liberal commentator: 'On "60 Minutes" last Sunday, rapper Cam'ron told Anderson Cooper that he would not inform the police if a serial killer were living next door to him, as it would alienate his fan base. The "stop snitching" Zeitgeist has become a shibboleth of being "down with" your people in poor black neighborhoods and refusing to give the police information about a black-on-black homicide, even if you witnessed it. This version of black identity has become so entrenched over the past few years that it is making it ever harder for investigators to crack murder cases. Using this technique as a means to stop racism is as misguided as it is easy. Police brutality was much worse in the past, and the war on drugs is old news. The current "stop snitching" notion is, quite simply, a subcultural fashion of the moment. It is also a facet of a larger phenomenon: a sense among black teens and 20-somethings that being aggressive toward the opposition is the soul of being authentic. There has been this element in the black community since the 1960s, but these days, it is so deeply felt that it is tacitly approved to place anti-authoritarian sentiment over saving black lives.'"

Proverbs 23:7 says "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he. The late British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said: "Nurture great thougts, for you will never go higher than your thoughts." Auther John C. Maxwell says in his book Thinking for a Change: "Unsuccessful people focus their thinking on survival. Average people focus their thinking on maintenance. Successful people focus their thinking on progress."
What is the total mindset of the African American community today? Is the majority thinking about survival, thinking about maintenance, or thinking about progress? What are the results? I sthe majority surviving, maintaining, or progressing? The most important question is what category does the reader choose to leave and what category he or she chooses to move into?

"And, the proof is in the pudding in how Snoop Dogg and Stuart Scott contradict one another, and these are two highly visible Blacks. If they can’t agree what the word, “hoe” means, then how in the hell can Don Imus be expected to know every proper contextual use of slurs? Again, it must be because he’s not Black....
"Sharpton has been shaming people in America in the same manner as a fraudulent shrink would falsely tell a woman she was raped as a child to continue earning counseling fees for repetitive counseling sessions. And, much like a woman who is duped into thinking she’s a victim, Sharpton has managed to counsel the Rutgers women’s basketball team into a collective hive of victims. If you don’t believe me, then ask Snoop Dogg and Stuart Scott why they completely contradict Sharpton’s own interpretation of Imus’ words.
"Instead of teaching young Americans that sometimes, people act stupidly and then when they realize they did something wrong and forgive them, Sharpton wants Black America to remain hateful, angry, and hurt so that he can remain relevant to today’s society. Without all the firebomb threats and violent protests, Sharpton is nothing but a two-bit pimp and ambulance chaser, waiting for the next racial situation for him to exploit for his own material gain. Like a bad shrink or a neighborhood pimp, Sharpton needs to be removed from the public eye.
"And, I’ve got one more thing to say to Black America: yes, you were exploited as slaves; yes, you’ve had some difficulties with oppression and discrimination; and yes, it makes you look like fools when Snoop Dogg and Stuart Scott completely contradict themselves and Al Sharpton. Maybe the truth is really that you’re not as much of a victim as you might think and just maybe, it’s time for you to get over the idea of being a perpetual victim you’ve been shamed into believing by the likes of Sharpton."

Cam'ron, whose real name is Cameron Giles, talks to Anderson Cooper for a report on how the hip-hop culture's message to shun the police has undermined efforts to solve murders across the country. Cooper's report will be broadcast on 60 MINUTES Sunday, April 22 (7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
"'If I knew the serial killer was living next door to me?' Giles responds to a hypothetical question posed by Cooper. 'I wouldn't call and tell anybody on him -- but I'd probably move,' says Giles. 'But I'm not going to call and be like, "The serial killer's in 4E.:"' ( For an excerpt of Giles' interview, click here....
"Rappers appear to be concerned about damaging what's known as their 'street credibility,' says Geoffrey Canada, an anti-violence advocate and educator from New York City's Harlem neighborhood. 'It's one of those things that sells music and no one really quite understands why,' says Canada. Their fans look up to artists if they come from the 'meanest streets of the urban ghetto,' he tells Cooper. For that reason, Canada says, they do not cooperate with the police.
Canada says in the poor New York City neighborhood he grew up in, only the criminals didn't talk to the police, but within today's hip-hop culture, that's changed. 'It is now a cultural norm that is being preached in poor communities....It's like you can't be a black person if you have a set of values that say "I will not watch a crime happen in my community without getting involved to stop it,"' Canada tells Cooper.
Young people from some of New York's toughest neighborhoods echo Canada's assessment, calling the message not to help police 'the rules' and helping the police 'a crime' in their neighborhoods. These 'rules' are contributing to a much lower percentage of arrests in homicide cases -- a statistic known as the 'clearance rate' -- in largely poor, minority neighborhoods throughout the country, according to Prof. David Kennedy of the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. 'I work in communities where the clearance rate for homicides has gone into the single digits,' says Kennedy. The national rate for homicide clearance is 60 percent. 'In these neighborhoods, we are on the verge of -- or maybe we have already lost -- the rule of law,' he tells Cooper.
"Says Canada, 'It's like we're saying to the criminals, "You can have our community....Do anything you want and we will either deal with it ourselves or we'll simply ignore it."'"
Let me get this straight. You mean the code of ethics in some Black neighborhoods is to let the criminals reign? They would not help the police if their mother was jacked in an alley or if a grandmother was killed? I cooperated with the police after I was robbed at gunpoint on my own front porch in 2005. Was I selling out or "betraying my Blackness"? (By the way, the police I talked to were all Black.) Does that mean that in certain neighborhoods I could not trust my neighbors to keep the neighborhood safe?
I keep saying at this rate the KKK will go out of business because their services will not needed anymore. There are Blacks are doing their job for them.
Who are the real sellouts?

"The gamble paid off. Not only did Karin Stanford - Mr Jackson’s former mistress and the mother of his two-year-old love child, Ashley - accept Mr Sharpton’s invitation to join him at the private party, she also took a swipe at her old flame by telling guests: 'Sharpton is the only civil rights leader I respect and support.'"

It is the self-appointed race police.
They are the "Keepers of the Blackness."
They are the "Black Enough" committee who certifies who are and who are not "authentically Black."
They are the ones who call others who do not fall in line with their rhetoric Uncle Tom's, snow-blacks, black skunks, black anglo saxons, zebras, Sambos, jigaboos, uncolas, wooly heads, Rev. Pork Chops, chicken eaters, bootlickers, black stooges, handkerchief-head Negros, white breads, rent-a-Toms, sellouts, Stepin Fetchits, low-belly creepers, turncoats, caste flunkies, lawn jockeys, hafricans, crumb snatchers, co-caucasians, butt kissers, waterboys, high yallers, shoeshine boys, tree tops, pleasers and appeasers, and slap happy Amos and Andys.
They are people like the self-appointed "Council on Black Internal Affairs" which published a book called The American Directory of Certified Uncle Toms. Some of the people they list, beside the usual suspects, are:
Henry Louis Gates
James Earl Jones
Booker T. Washington
W.E.B. Du Bois
Sammy Davis, Jr.
even "Ice Cube"
The Black Taliban seeks to silence and to ridicule the voices of those who do not repeat the "party line," Soviet style. There is no freedom of thought. They want to silence those who have websites like http://www.issues-views.com/ which says it has been "reporting on the fronline of dissent since 1985."
What did "Uncle Tom" Booker T. Washington say:
"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
There is nothing new under the sun.
