What does a mirror say about the public?

A Microsoft artificial intelligence experiment recently failed by turning into a strange parody of logical thinking, or really illogical thinking. Tay, the name of the program, was designed to simulate a teenager to converse with people on Twitter, but it turned into a promiscuous, genocidal racist. Microsoft had to shut down the program in less than 24 hours.

This AI failure seems amusing on the outset, but there’s a serious point to be had. The “robot” learned from the people it conversed with on the Internet, so it basically mirrored the mentality of the public, or at least the Twitter public, which is very popular with teens and young adults. I’m afraid that sampling of the public can be generalized more widely, because so much of the same mentalities of promiscuity, hate and anger are promoted in popular media throughout western society and our country, especially.

It’s disturbing to see the people of once Godly nations behaving so ungodly. May the world wake up to what is wrong with its thinking and return to God in ways that produce permanent good fruits. Let it be through Christ Jesus. Amen.

Pascha 2016

Pascha2016a3rdCompassDOTorg

A blessed Pascha to you all. Remember the word Easter is not appropriate to use for this holiday because it comes from Eastra, Eastre or Eostre, pagan goddesses of spring that were celebrated with festivals at about the same time Pascha was, so the church, unfortunately, took the Easter name for God’s holiday.
 
Why is Pascha the preferred name for Christ’s holiday of resurrection?
 
Pascha is used by most non-Westernized churches. It is Greek for Passover, which comes from the Hebrew for Passover – Pesach/Pesah/Pesakh. Christ was sacrificed as our Passover Lamb and died after the first feast of Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7; Matthew 26:17-19; Mark 14:12-16; Luke 22:7-16). Christ’s resurrection is also symbolic of the renewal of life the Jews experienced in their release from slavery soon after the first Passover in Egypt. So as Christ died and was reborn in eternal life, so are we when we die from old ways of darkness and freed from the eternal slavery of sin by our rebirth with Christ through our confession of faith in Him to other people (Matthew 10:32-33; Romans 10:9-10; John 3:5-7).

Pascha, not Easter

PaschaGoodFriday2016a3rdCompassDOTorg

A blessed Good Friday to everyone. Remember God’s sacrifice to atone for our sin’s and bring a new age for the Jews and mankind.
 
Remember, too, the word Easter is a misnomer and inappropriate to use for Christ’s day of resurrection. The word comes from the name of pagan spring deities and festivals. Instead, refer to Christ’s resurrection day as Pascha, which is what most of the non-Westernized church calls the holiday. Pascha is Greek for Passover and comes from the Hebrew for Passover – Pesach/ Pesah/Pesakh. Pascha is the correct name for the holiday because Christ was our Passover Lamb and sacrificed during Passover (1 Corinthians 5:7).

St. Patrick’s Day 2016

StPatricksBanner01

Lá Iontach Fhéile Pádraig! Wonderful St. Patrick’s to everyone!

Remember St. Patrick’s Day is not about Irish patriotism or partying. Pubs used to close on St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland.

God saved and blessed Ireland through Christ and Saint Patrick. And the Irish flag symbolizes lasting peace (white) between the green Catholics and orange Protestants. Let there be unity because there is truly only one Church under God.

Righteous government is not run by petty politics

RighteousGovernment2016a3rdCompassDOTorg

Righteous government is not run by petty politics. The President did his job by nominating a capable and qualified Supreme Court Justice, yet Senate Republicans are refusing to even review Merrick Garland’s nomination. He is well regarded by both Democrats and Republicans alike, yet politicians blocking the nomination suggest it should be held off because it is an election year. They have no truly legitimate reasons to block the nomination like this and are serving to make government a mockery. Righteous leaders will do their jobs without putting personal opinions or alliances in the way.
