@sim last week I got back from 10 days hiking around New England. Temps ranged from the 70s to the 30s depending, and the fall foliage was gorgeous! My first time in that part of the country. Back in Alaska it's already all snowy already, but the sunsets last a nice long time at this latitude.

If we don't stand together, what's happened in Lithuania will be coming to where we are. Liberty activists get to NH before it's too late.

Today I learned that I could do a headless install of a raspberry pi and get it to automatically connect to the wifi and enable ssh.

This is brilliant!

No more annoyance having to connect keyboard and mouse to configure it.

So now my new kodi is prepared and my new TV will be delivered some time during the weekend.

Only missing component now is a new NAS to stream from and then I'm all setup and ready to go in my second apartment! =)

Ahh, slowly the "normal" starts to come creeping back in scandinavia.

I just saw that norwegian is removing all mask rules on all flights between sweden, norway and denmark, and on all domestic flights.

That's great! =)

Hopefully the rest of the world will follow once it becomes painfully clear that people flying without masks are not dying all over the place. .

Italy is under dictatorship.
Mario Draghi's government is destroying our freedoms and police is using violence against demonstrators in Trieste. Only in Italy people can't work without Green Pass. The press is fully corrupted. Please, show this shame to the world.

Who made the New Testament? 

Hello friends,

Lest ye find yourself believing that one day the New Testament dropped from the heavens fully formed, and has been meticulously copied ever since, I'm sorry it is not so.

Much of what we know of as the new testament was first compiled together and commented on by Origen (185-254). Including Matthew, Mark, John, Luke, Acts and most of the letters. Though he also included many other books and letters which are no longer part of the New Testament. Based on his extensive reading of the literature at the time he believed in only one God, which was God the Father referred to by Yeshua. He also believed in reincarnation as a significant part of Yeshua's teachings.

Flavious Constantinus (272-337) was a Roman emperor (306-337) at a time where there was a great diversity of books floating around about the life of Yeshua. Unfortunately they were not following Yeshua's commandment to love and be kind to one another, and instead there was a great deal of infighting. Indeed most Romans worshipped a variety of humaniform gods, ranging from Apollo and Zeus to Julius Ceasar and Mithras. So Constantine organized the Council of Nicea to create a new God, which could be worshipped by the whole empire.

Constantine organized the Council of Nicea and invited Christians from around the empire.
When he asked gathered presbyters what the name of the new God would be, they could not agree, and held a ballot over a year and half, and made a short list of their top five: 1. Caesar 2. Krishna 3. Mithra 4. Horus 5. Zeus

Constantine decided there were too many factions with this, and so synthesized a new name for the new God they would be making. Since Constantine was of British origin he used the Druid God Hesus for a first name from the western end of the empire, and joined it with Krishna (Sanskrit for Christ) from the eastern end of the empire, in order to unify the East and West in one name. Thus Yeshua of Nazareth became Jesus Christ (source: Acta Concilii Nicaeni, 1618).

Consantine then decreed that the New Testament be compiled:
"Search ye these books, and whatever is good in them, that retain; but whatsoever is evil, that cast away. What is good in one book, unite ye with that which is good in another book. And whatsoever is thus brought together shall be called The Book of Books. And it shall be the doctrine of my people, which I will recommend unto all nations, that there shall be no more war for religions' sake."
(God's Book of Eskra, op. cit., chapter xlviii, paragraph 31)

Unfortunately during the heated debates that followed only made divisions worse between competing factions of Christians they focused not on what they had to follow in common (Jesus's commandments), but rather on which of their pet theories would become the dominant one (Monotheism vs Tritheism). In the end tritheism (trinity) won out, and the killing of Christians and burning of their scriptures by other Christians began in earnest with total disregard for Jesus's commandments.

"With his instructions fulfilled, Constantine then decreed that the New Testimonies would thereafter be called the "word of the Roman Savior God" (Life of Constantine, vol. iii, p. 29) and official to all presbyters sermonizing in the Roman Empire. He then ordered earlier presbyterial manuscripts and the records of the council "burnt" and declared that "any man found concealing writings should be stricken off from his shoulders" (beheaded) (ibid.). As the record shows, presbyterial writings previous to the Council of Nicaea no longer exist, except for some fragments that have survived."

Interesting to note that of the few fragments we have of Matthew we have from before the great burning of scriptures began, there is no mention of Jesus being sovereign over all the earth or a trinity (Matt 28:18-19 respectively).

You know who was sovereign over the Heaven and the Earth at the time of the coucil? Ceasar.. Guess they did a little combining over there.

In the early ones of Matt 28:18 Jesus said ""just as my Father has sent me I am also sending you."" And Matt 28:19 is completely missing.
https://www.biblequery.org/mtmss.html
So what do they say he was sending them for?
Matt 28:20 teach them to observe all, whatever I did command you, and lo, I am with you all the days -- till the full end of the age.'

And that my friends is how the new testament was formed, to the best of my understanding. There was a period of time of a couple centuries where people were allowed to own this New Testament. Until Emperor Justinian came on the scene and decided he wanted to change the interpretation of the scripture to exclude reincarnation. So after the 500's again the bibles were burned along with their owners, until the invention of the printing press made it infeasible in the 1500's. In fact it was still illegal to own a bible in Italy until 1870 ( https://romecorruptedchristianity.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/a-time-when-the-bible-was-banned-and-burned/ )

So yeah modern bible-based Christianity or protestantism is a fairly "new religion".
The new testament as ordained by Flavious Constantine, and compiled by the squabiling presbyters of Nicea, has passed down fairly in tact.

But of course you can consider that perhaps God had ordained it all, modifications and burnings included. Though certainly the burning and killing is against the commands of Yeshua/Jesus .

Personally it does not matter to me if you believe in the three gods of the trinity, or also add in a fourth god "satan/devil", or whether or not you deny reincarnation, or any other trivial point.
As far as I know, as long as you open your heart to God and follow Jesus's commandments (i.e. cultivate forgiveness, compassion and unconditional love for All beings including yourself) you'll attain the salvation of life age during.

I would like to remind you that we are not at liberty to judge whether anyone else will or will not achieve salvation, as God is the judge, not you. So my understanding of salvation is by faith alone.

Personally I follow Yeshua of Nazareth, and thus bypass the Constantine's Testament as a single authority, since indeed there are many many books not authorized by the squabbling council of Nicea which can be used to corroborate Yeshua's life.

From all I have read, the most important thing is to follow Jesus's commandments, forgive, love and be kind to one another.


John 13:34-35
Young's Literal Translation
34 `A new commandment I give to you, that ye love one another; according as I did love you, that ye also love one another;
35 in this shall all know that ye are my disciples, if ye may have love one to another.'

This commandment I give my stamp of approval as authentic.

I have some pre dawn prayers to perform so will end here.

May you be blessed.

ideology and that only socialism can bring peace.

Not a single discussion aout his mental health.

But with islam, we can safely assume that all criminals are just ill and need help.

Hypocritical and leftist swedish media is so bad sometimes (well most of the time).

The plot thickens!

Some of you might remember a guy who killed 5 people in norway with bow and arrow who converted to islam.

Apparently, it had nothing to do with islam, he is mentally ill!

So for all of you who thought that islam tends to generate scum like this, you can relax, the religion of peace is still the religion of peace, and this man was just mentally ill! ;)

Now, I remember when Breivik killed young socialists in norway, this was obviously the result of "extreme" right (...)

they accept without a passport, and I am sure that would wipe out 2 months earnings for them if not more.

For me this is not so bad, since I can always get a haircut in sweden next time I travel there, but it must be a major annoyance for people who do not have that option. =(

Very elegant and agreeable way to handle the harassment due to not wearing a mask!

Went to the barber yesterday and they refused me because I did not have a corona passport.

They were very nice about it, and almost close to tears, because their revenue was down 25% due to the corona passport law.

It is sad that they do not refuse to obey it, but they are punishing themselves at -25% revenues per month.

The fines they risk is 5000 to 10000 EUR per customer (...)

For the last decade I've been stuck in a dead end job. My talents have been overlooked, but mostly underutilized. I'm on my own now. Me versus the great (government) power. It's terrifying, because I'm just starting to realize, I'm free. I hope anyone else out there in NAS land that was forced into this position is feeling the same way. We don't need them. They need us. Hey wage slaves, let's all quit, get better jobs, and end this fucking "pandemic".

Wow, crazy man managed to kill 5 people in Norway with bow and arrow.

Let's see how long it takes before owning a bow will require a license as well.

Lucky me that I already bought a hunting bow while it was possible!
