Comment on Prefrosh Preview: Traditions at Georgetown by Aged Alumnus http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/2015/07/13/prefrosh-preview-traditions-at-georgetown/comment-page-1/#comment-1326181 Tue, 14 Jul 2015 16:11:26 +0000 http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/?p=68949#comment-1326181 Not stepping on the seal at the center door of Healy is new, because the mosaic seal was only installed at the time of the GU bicentennial in 1989. In my day, we were advised not to use the right-hand door to Healy, the one leading past Carroll Parlor, because that was reserved for seniors or upperclassmen.

College frosh (I was spared, being in the SFS) used to “pledge” and wear beanies, but that was just a recent memory when I first stepped foot on the Hilltop in 1965.

Another recently-discarded tradition when I entered was that seniors had the privilege of wearing short versions of academic gowns, along the line of English solicitors, to class until WW II and maybe into the late 50s. Stylish and elegant, that would be a good one for you millennials to revive.

Finally, I’m puzzled that you didn’t mention stealing the hands from the Healy Clock. Perhaps it’s best to let this old custom sink into legend, because the Jesuits once told me that the clock-hand thieves usually messed up the clock mechanism, and that it took weeks and thousands of dollars to repair.

Comment on Prefrosh Preview: D.C.’s internship scene by Mike Schaub http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/2015/07/03/prefrosh-preview-d-c-s-internship-scene/comment-page-1/#comment-1324440 Tue, 07 Jul 2015 19:18:18 +0000 http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/?p=68918#comment-1324440 Welcome new Hoyas! My name is Mike Schaub and I am executive director of the Cawley Career Education Center at Georgetown University. As Kenneth Lee’s post suggests, the internship culture is strong at Georgetown and throughout DC. This post also serves as an important reminder to make up your own mind when it comes to the value of campus resources. I appreciate the post’s suggestions on how to find internships on Capitol Hill, in public service, and at nonprofit organizations. The Career Center is well known for providing resources designed to help students find internships and jobs in these career fields. We host a Government & Nonprofit Career Expo in the spring, with over 90 employers in attendance last year. Our government industry week was well attended and provided valuable information and connections for students interested in the government and nonprofit sectors. Our 9th annual Careers for the Common Good networking event brought 90 alumni to campus to talk to students about careers in service, international development, and education. Plus, we provide individual advising on how to find internships in government, nonprofit, development, and public service. For students who are interested in these and other fields, our two primary internship databases—Hoya Career Connection and iNet (an internship database shared by a select group of leading universities including Harvard, Yale, UPenn, Stanford, USC, and MIT)—offer thousands of internship postings in government, nonprofit, international development, marketing, health, science, education, sales, real estate, merchandising, law, the arts, banking, and consulting. With over 15,000 student contacts last year, and with only 4% of our seniors from the Class of 2014 reporting that they were seeking employment, there’s a good chance that we are doing something right. To learn more about these resources stop by the Career Center or visit our website at http://careercenter.georgetown.edu/.

Comment on Voyeuristic rabbi refuses to vacate Georgetown synagogue by Tim http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/2015/02/02/voyeuristic-rabbi-refuses-to-vacate-georgetown-synagogue/comment-page-1/#comment-1324297 Tue, 07 Jul 2015 10:12:37 +0000 http://blog.georgetownvoice.com/?p=67180#comment-1324297 My name is Tim and I am writing a paper +-about end times prophecies in Revelation and Daniel, which I believe has been revealed to me by the Holy Spirit which God will give you anyone who asks and he is no respecter of persons. I have been seeking truth for a long time and I’ve searched in many different areas I I have listened to the koran on audiobook and I have listened to the book of Mormon on audiobook I have studied different religions and none have the answers and the literal proof that God is who he says he is as
In the holy Bible. I have been looking in this world for what can be believed and what is just a smokescreen that Satan has put up to blind us to mislead us. I’m writing this out of what I have read in the Old Testament Jewish Bible and the Christian Bible, the New Testament not to be looked at as separate but actually that the New Testament is a continuation of the Old Testament. The Old Testament flows into the New Testament and they complement each other they do not contradict each other Jesus came to fulfill the Old Testament he says in the Bible in the volume of the book it is spoken of me. The Old Testament was written through centuries before Christ was born. the Dead Sea Scrolls which were found which were dated about 300 to 400 before Christ was born. They contain all of the books of the Old Testament except for the book of Esther. All the prophecies in the Old Testament which foretold of Jesus is coming cannot be an accident/ they were written before he was ever born and there were literally hundreds of prophecies that he fulfilled. He couldn’t say well,I am going to fulfill all these prophecies because I want to be the Christ. he was born in Bethlehem ,was called a Nazarene, came out of Galilee. all this was written in the Old Testament and he couldn’t possibly have set this up. He was of the house and lineage of David which was foretold in the Old Testament. It is written that he also came to save the Gentiles because he is God of all people, not just the Jewish people.He does not gives wisdom and understanding of the Scriptures only to certain people,it is written in the Bible that He will give all people who ask, the wisdom to understand his word. He does not love you any more or less than the CEO of General Motors. God says that if you ask you will be given the very mind of Christ. God created you and he treats all people the same. He doesn’t love anyone more or less than another. God uses the lowly people of this world because people who have high positions get into pride and God has trouble using them because they think in their flesh they know more or they have the answers when God is trying to reveal to them his truth. They don’t give God his glory ,God is a jealous God does not share his glory with anyone because that would be a lie and it is not his nature to lie, He cannot lie. In the New Testament the apostle Paul writes “no ye not that we shall judge angels?” He lets you know that because the least esteemed among you can be your judges and it will be true and righteous in God’s eyes. God gives you wisdom and with that wisdom you are quite capable of judging all things. In Isaiah 7- 14 said that Jesus will be born of a virgin, Micah 5- 2 says he will be born in Bethlehem. Psalm 41 -9 says says he’ll be betrayed for 30 pieces of silver which is exact amount that Judas betrayed him for. Isaiah 53 speaks of his death and that he sacrificed Himself that all might live. Psalm 109- 5 says he will be mocked by those who crucified him. Psalm 34- 20 says none of his bones will be broken in his death. Psalm 22- 18 says that those who put him on the cross would gamble for his clothing. Psalms 31-5 talks about his dying prayer his spirit might be committed to his father in heaven. Isaiah 53-12 says he would ask for forgiveness for those who killed him because we didn’t know that we were killing God’s son. All these prophecies were written before Jesus birth and were fufilled exactly as they were prophesied. If you read the four Gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John which were written in the first century A.D. after Christ’s death, you’ll see that all these prophecies were fulfilled and the book of Revelation or Apocalypse as the Catholics call it, has prophecy that is being fulfilled even now. I want to point these out to you, because it is written”My people perish for lack of knowledge”They are unaware of these prophecies coming true and might be caught in the lies of the evil one. the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered between 1946 in 1956. They are believed to be created before 408 BC to 308 BC. Biblical scholars agree that the Old Testament texts were written tween 300 BC and 500 BC before Christ was even born. Now why am I telling you all this? This is so you can see that the Old Testament is credible. The prophecy about Jesus did come true! Therefore you might think ,how to does this stuff come true, was just just a man writing down some stuff? know this was God talking through man, only God can do this.
God’s spirit flows through the Old Testament and the New Testament.The Holy Bible says God had wisdom before He ever started creating the world.He didn’t do it by trial and error, evolution is a lie. It also says that God’s ways are so far above us as a heavens are above the earth but that doesn’t mean that he can’t relate to us and call us his sons and daughters as the Bible reveals to us. God is not a creature,He is and always was. We can’t understand that He existed when there was no time. Physics teaches us that time slows down around massive objects. Before the universe was created there was no time. But yet God existed. He knew that Satan was going to fall and do wicked things to destroy his creation. He knew the end from the beginning in his infinite wisdom. This is revealed to us in the prophecies of the Old Testament. Hinduism and Buddhism do not have prophecies that are fulfilled that I know of. The book of revelations or Apocalypse as the Catholics call it reveals things that I believe will come shortly. In revelations 3- 10, Jesus said to a church called Philadelphia, that he will keep them from the hour of temptation that will come upon the whole world, to try them. The Bible also says, that Satan is more subtle than any other creature, I take this to mean that he splits hairs, that we don’t always catch his subtlety, and we are deceived by him. By ourselves can’t stand against him but by trusting in Jesus,who defeated Satan on the cross, we can learn when we are in the wrong. I trust in Jesus and God the Father and the Holy Spirit. It is revealed to us that they are three persons in the Godhead. In revelations 2-12, Jesus talks to another church, saying” I know your works where Satan’s seat is ,and you have not denied my name, even in those days when antipas. My martyr, was slain among you where Satan lives”. Revelations 2-14 says” I hold this against you, because you have those their that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans and to eat things sacrificed to idols. And commit fornication”. I believe this is spiritual fornication going after strange gods as I said before, God is a jealous God. Revelations 2-15 says that God hates the doctrine of the nicolaitans, which I have studied to find means “to subdue the laity”. The church doesn’t teach the Bible but thinks only the priesthood can understand the Scriptures. The common people or the laity are not given access to the Bible and its teachings and God hates this. You pray to God and ask for wisdom He will give it to you. He is no respecter of persons, there is no priest or pastor can understand the Bible better than anyone else. As I said God is no respecter of persons. By the power of the Holy Spirit, God says he will teach you all things. God says to repent of all of their sins or He will destroy them with the sword of his mouth. He actually threatens to destroy two of his churches if they don’t repent from their sins. In revelations chapter 17 it says” there is a woman drunk with the blood of the saints sitting on a beast with seven heads. The seven heads are seven hills on which the city sitteth”. It is well-known that Rome is the great city that sits on seven hills. The woman “The great whore” is called the great city that rules over the kings of the earth. Even to this day Catholics will obey the Pope over the laws of their land. People will obey the Pope, and what he has decreed to be given him from heaven, over the laws of the their land. You may think this is insane accusing the pope of this great sin, but the Pope is just a man, not God on earth as the Catholics believe. He is elected by voting of the bishops, and they believe once he is voted in, anything he said on behalf of the Catholic Church is straight from God. I don’t believe anyone should have that kind of power, any sinful man. He is a flesh and blood man just like us, and he makes mistakes just like you and I. Revelation 19 says the beast and the false prophet that wrought miracles, which deceived those who took the mark of the beast and them that worship it’s image, which is the image of the great whore, which I believe to be the image or statute of a woman. If the woman is first beast, and the image of the beast would be, as I said, the statue of a woman or the image of a woman. Now let me make this clear, I am not saying that Mary, blessed mother of Christ is a whore, she is a queen in heaven, not the queen of heaven. The Catholic Church has lifted Mary to God status. I don’t believe Mary answers prayers, or visits Earth, or has the kind of power the Catholic Church grants her. The infrastructure for Mary worship and Saint worship was put in place over the centuries by various popes. In revelations 22-8 says and “I, John saw these things and heard them and I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel”. Revelations 22 -9, the angel says, “see that you do not do that, I’m a fellow worshiper of Jesus Christ and of thy brother the prophets, worship God”. If we can’t worship angels how can we worship men or women who have died. The Muslim religion was established about 600 years after Christ’s birth. And they do not believe that Jesus was God. They believe he was created. They believe He was created and not begotten. However they do believe Mary was a virgin. I’m thinking this would tie and or connect worship of a statue of Mary in the end times. Because they believe she was a virgin they might worship the image of the beast, or a statue. And take a mark in their hand or forehead.
I believe that a World government will be established as predicted in the Bible, because of very, very hard times that will come on all the earth. I believe nations will become bankrupt, you’ll run out of energy. The weather is getting worse and worse we have had a major storm with over 200 mile an hour winds. We will have problems with insects and disease and other bad things. People are going to try to turn to God, that they will be directed to the wrong way by a one world government controlled by the church. They’re going to be told to pray to Mary, and not give God’s glory by praising and worshiping and praying to him. We are to give God His praise he does not share his glory because that would be a lie, and he cannot lie. You worship God, you don’t pray to men and you don’t pray to dead people. This is a trap that Satan has been setting up over the centuries. If you follow the Catholic Church and the Mary cult, you will see if this is been coming on for a long time. Revelations 13 -11 says “and I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth and he had two horns like a lamb but spake as a dragon. causing the image of the beast to speak and the whole earth to worship the image of the first beast, and he will do with great wonders and signs and even makes fire come down from heaven in the sight of men and deceives those That live on earth”. It says in Revelation that all people free and bond slaves will be forced to take the mark on their right hand or forehead. That no one might buy or sell unless they take the mark. They will take the name of the beast, the number of his name ,or a mark. It says in revelations “let him that has understanding count the numbers of the beast,it is the number of a man” and equals 666. In roman numerals. The Pope has a title,” vicarious fillii dei” which means to act in the place of the Son of the Deity.This adds up to 666 in roman numerals{count a U for a V} The Catholics believe the Pope acts as Jesus Christ on earth, and he alone has this power. It is believed by the Catholics that anything he says on behalf of the church is God speaking. I think this is way too much power from one fallible man to have. He has sin is life just like everybody else. The Bible says all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. So this image that he is going to make is the image of the great whore or a statue or picture of a woman. And it says he’ll have power to make the image speak. This Mary cult has been slowly put in place over the centuries. You might wonder why I have something against the Catholic Church, I don’t really. I was once Catholic, even went so far as to wear a scapula around my neck which the Catholic Church taught if you wear that when you die, Mary will take you straight to heaven. Nowhere does the Bible say anything to the effect that this might possibly be true, it was proclaimed by a pope and the Catholics believe it is a fact. I was worshiping Mary I was holding her above Jesus. Not good! When I learned about these teachings I’m telling you about that I learned in revelations, I denounced my believe in Catholicism in turn to Jesus, His father and the Holy Spirit. God delivered me from worshiping dead people and Mary and now I give my glory to the Father and Jesus who is God also and the Holy Spirit, the third part of the Godhead. When the disciples of Jesus asked when he would return after ascending to heaven he said this, there will be wars and rumors of wars, and all kinds of bad things will be going on in the world. I believe the hard times are getting worse and Jesus says that the times will be shortened for the sake of the elect. The elect are the people who accept Christ as their Savior and worship God in spirit and truth. Nations are on the verge of bankruptcy, people are fighting with each other, killing each other, terrorism is getting worse and worse. New diseases are spreading and killing many people. We could have a pandemic at any time. One example of the hard times is Haiti, where the entire country was devastated by an earthquake, they practiced a lot of voo doo and other devil worship. In the Philippines they had winds of over 200 miles an hour. It says that the water all over the world will become polluted and many will die because of that. it also says that, that is in revelations that a third of the fish in the oceans will die. I believe when times get so hard people will turn to God finally for help, that they will be deceived by the world religion set in place by Satan. The church is corrupt in idolatry, and that’s what they will teach the people to worship a statue of Mary. it is not really Mary but demonic forces. They will be led astray because I don’t know what’s in the book the Bible, the Catholic Church doesn’t encourage you to read the Bible and in their services you get very little actual teaching. I am saying to you, don’t take my word for this, read it for yourself. Turn your life over to Jesus who is true God. The first commandment God gave us was to love the Lord thy God with all my heart and all thy soul and serve him only. He gave this as the first commandment because it’s the most important one ,as I said before, God is a jealous God he doesn’t share his glory. If you read the Old Testament all through it, God shows he hates idolatry. He wants to be worshiped in spirit and truth. It also says that thousands times thousands and hundred of thousands times thousands will wash their robes in the blood of the Lamb and be saved. In conclusion, I would like to say there is hope, if you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and worship Him in spirit and truth, you will be saved. I pray that you pray this simple prayer, because the minute you do your life will change!!! God Bless You
