“This should be allowed to be said” ?

The phrase from the title, but with an exclamation point at the end, one often finds in right-wing populists. Any perceived or real taboos are initiated with this phrase. “It will surely not be able to say that refugees … The fact that foreigners … That dissidents …”. And so on. It is the well-rehearsed…

After the diet is before the diet?

Want to lose weight, many people, but few do it. At least permanently. The thing is simple, and it is also complicated. First of all, you have to know how , then you have to know whether . So if you really want to. The last question may sound silly, but is probably the most…

Findings of science

Since the exploration of the world started on a scientific basis, humanity has acquired more and more useful knowledge. What was still believed in ancient times that because there are tiny particles, is now proved, although these atoms still consist of several small sub-Divided, as we know today.

Does Jesus heal even today?

When Christians pray to Jesus, they do not to the man Jesus, but to God, who has shown in Jesus. For simplicity and for clarity they call him Jesus, but my the divine order. Jesus is seen as its own separate hypostasis, as a separate entity. God the Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit. Externally, the…

Is that funny

I know parents

I know parents who are actually very nice people. Actually, they were Christian dominated over their parents’ homes, he perhaps more than her, but he has more of it apparently turned away as she. Overall, however, both have turned away from the faith. If their child is in bed at night and is afraid in…

Christiane F. We Children from Bahnhof Zoo

Yesterday I started to watch the film “Christiane F. We Children from Bahnhof Zoo”. And I’m frightened. Notably because of how young Christiane F. was. Because the film is based on a true story indeed. Christiane is just 13 when she slides right into the drug scene inside. And it was not so that they…

Should we place the cards?

Love the people would know something about their future and so there is the Internet a few offers that promise to predict a future. For example, you can set up online tarot cards. What to make of this? In the Old Testament it is strongly discouraged because you should trust only one, namely God the…

Can we humans change?

It is not that someone will change, just because you this would permanently give any tips. Change starts from the inside out. Therefore, it is useful if someone or someone’s behavior might disturb one that you start first of all with himself. The other will not go away with night? If one is so far…

The day is still young

Weekend, and though not everywhere in the country of sunshine, so the weekend has only just begun, Saturday is still young, Sunday still not there Monday in the distance. Today, you can tackle all the things again that you had in mind for so long. Of course not all fit into one day. but you…

Yes, no, maybe, I do not know

If you ask people for example, whether they want to do something, or if they want to help one respond some: I do not know. Either this is the elegant way to say no, or at least the one in which they themselves do not meet resistance when you pronounce this indirect No. Or does…

In a christian standpoint the term Sin is separation from God. If a man does not believe in God, he uncoupled from also connected to it ethical apparatus. Certain norms and rules do not apply to him so automatically, such as the Ten Commandments. Thou shalt not kill, it says what a devout Christian would…

Violence is, with few exceptions a bad thing. Among the exceptions below. There is physical violence, psychological violence, domestic violence, bullying, violence on the Internet, violence at work in Nature and state violence. And perhaps even more species. The essence of violence is mostly to limit the scope and freedoms of other people or groups….

About the nature and mischief of to-do lists

Many people lead them in different ways. The one digital, the other in a planner, some as separate pieces of paper. To-do lists are useful if you have to do more than two or three things to separate the important from the unimportant and, where possible, not to forget the important thing. but they can…

Sunday, the day of rest

On the seventh day God, the idea of the creation story rested very beginning of the Bible in Genesis. One should remember that this story certainly does not mean seven real days, but is a theological concept that relies on time common scientific ideas, if one can speak of natural science. Theologians lay down the…

Why you are something special

Depending on their situation, one is sometimes not quite sure if or how much is he/she is actually worth. Biblical argued but you and every person has a tremendous value. Already in the Old Testament, at the very beginning in Genesis, the thought is formulated, that God created man in his own image. Today we…

The son of a Roman Milit√§rtribuns grew up there, where Hungary is today. He struck at the behest of his father, a military career, as he was obliged as the son of a Roman officer under the provisions of the Emperor Diocletian for military service. Over time it his Christian faith changed such that he…

In the canteen

There are places that do not look for it on out of conviction, but because you have to. So even in the cafeteria because you’re hungry. Although it is not there always full, unless you have maybe a size of 1.20 m and a weight of 60 kg, then the portions were more than ample….

copywriters

Copywriters are people who make their money and their livelihood in order to make other people’s things tasty, of which they themselves know, among other things, that they are harmful. Too much conscience can not afford to be in this profession. Currently you can find on billboards an electronic cigarette in the manner advertised that…

Just one month after the heaviest firearms attack in the United States, in which there were 58 dead in Las Vegas, shot yesterday, a young man 26 people who had just attended a church service in a Baptist church.

It could all be so beautiful

Everything could be so nice if it were not for the atrocities made by humans. War, rape, murder, robbery, theft, extortion, striving for power and so on. Basically, it would not need to give all of these things, because no one else she does, than the man himself. It is in the nature of man…

Feeling guilty today on Reformation day?

Maybe you have a bad conscience today. Who knows why. So you’re in good company. Then Martin Luther, we do celebrate Reformation Day today in the commemoration, also suffered a massive bad conscience. However, his concern was more holistic and also religious. The question was, how can stand before God a human being, even if…

Coup in Catalonia?

I may be wrong and I would be delighted if this were so, but what is happening in Catalonia, seems to me like a coup. Due to an illegal referendum, the independence is proclaimed here in Parliament. Due to a referendum, which should never have been held and it was not clear whether the votes…

On Sunday we will collectively become younger

It’s that time again, but this time in the right direction. On Sunday, the clocks change. The terminology, however, still not clear to me quite so, they will be reset before it? If they are presented, so the time is now numerically before regular time? Or they are adjusted, so so that it lags behind…

Do we need God for morality and ethics?

Morals and ethical concepts are not necessarily tied to the belief in the one God. Even without this faith we come to ethical decisions and to continue to function. Often or perhaps always, however, one comes to utilitarian, ethical concepts. According to which the majority is always right, no matter whether it has actually legal….

Easy easy

The word simply/easy has an unnoticed economy in the language and in everyday use. It has crept so and it seems as if you could break down everything in a simple manner and solved by using this word. These are precisely the things that are not simply in which this word is used as a…

Peter and the Wolf

Hurray, the wolves are back! In Germany, more and more wolves will gradually sifted and some environmentalists are pleased with this new, supposedly ecological happiness and balance. The wolf as a relative of the dog, some say, was almost a bit a friend of the people. In the musical tale “Peter and the Wolf” by…

The Walking Dead

There are a wide variety of movies about zombies and some trains running currently. One of them is The Walking Dead, on Amazon Prime you had obviously choose a different name and called it there fear of the walking dead.

Carrot pants and frog legs

One can be visually hurt? The question is not really meant seriously, but seriously: If you grew up in the 70s, was considered in terms of pants Cowboy Style, bootcut pants that were always ready below. Eventually, they agreed on the Levi’s 501, which after all has a straight and elegant cut. If you look…

Child poverty in Germany

More than one in five children in Germany is considered poor. Sometimes this poverty is only temporary, for several years, for example. Pleasant for those affected, the whole is certainly in any way. Here, however, poverty is not meant in comparison to other countries, not for example, a poor country in Africa, but the relative…

Blade Runner 2049

25 years ago was the first part of Blade Runner, which was supplemented by a second, equally dark and equally well-made movie this year. It is a dystopia drawn, in the one hand, people live, parallel to them, the artificially bred people who replicants. These need to be kept low, because otherwise there could be…

Christians and atheists

The following text will certainly be read very differently by Christians and atheists. GODISNOWHERE .

gravitational waves

A few days ago has been able to prove something that had theoretically postulated about 100 years ago Albert Einstein formulated, but which he was not sure whether it would ever be able to really prove. Gravitational waves are effectively a barely perceptible tremors in space. They are formed when two neutron stars merge. This…

Harvey Weinstein or: what is power?

The US film producer Harvey Weinstein is currently being accused of massive sexual assault and rape of some. Because rape is a unique crime anyway, I let the time left out and treat only the question of sexual assault. How can it be that most women allow this such attacks, anyway, although it this is…

What I’m wondering about

… is why I actually blogging. Every blogger has so essentially duplicating his own ideas why he does that. I think on the one hand it is with me, that I would like to encourage a discourse on certain things, even though the do not have to be reflected in the fact that now necessarily…

In life you can go without a lot

But not without literature and cats. This spell out or maybe even longer hangs near an escalator in a Munich S-Bahn station. Somehow it had unfortunately made it to my long-term memory, because long time I found it somehow something stupid, somehow covered, somehow striking. Even if I like cats in principle, I might as…

The dubious charms of a central station

There are people who like trains. And in fact, you sit in a first in, it is actually not so bad. That which does not necessarily led me, at least for train travel, are actually most likely the stations. Not places where one likes to get out, unless you want to perhaps buy drugs, which…

Colors are dangerous?

Who, for example, opinion, religion or religions are basically dangerous, could also come up with the idea that colors are also dangerous. For just as in religions, there are all sorts of shades in the colors, different and similar, and the whole thing yet in all possible nuances and shades. Even in religions there are…

Does religion corrupt young people?

Excuse me this absurd appearing question, because my mind is not inserted in this issue. But it is the opinion of a Facebook contact, with which I circulated from time to time together again at random and such crude theses. I had replied to this question, among others, as follows: Each person is affected by…

Children nowadays have more self control

The children of today are no longer what they once were? That’s not true. 1968 subjected psychologists several children a test. Either they got a candy immediately, or if they could wait a few minutes, they got two candy. This test was then repeated recently and it did not come out of what had foreseen…
