The Desire For Money, Do You Have Business Sense?

For those of us who grew up with parents who worked for ... rather than owned them, the world of business can be quite a mystery. Even more so if we've dared to try to start one of our own. The

Is There Any Way To Get Out Of Debt?

In this era where we are bombarded daily with commercials on television, radio, billboards, through email, not to forget the flyers slipped under the car's wiper blades while shopping at the mall, it's no surprise that so many of us find ourselves endlessly in debt to the services and products offered by others. How can we refuse, when we're baited with the juicy orange carrot of '0% APR' up to a certain amount or for a specified time, or 'no money down' and 'easy installments' of just so much per month?

The Irish people are "not" white people? How so?

I know this is going to be difficult for you to hear (or it may be meaningless to you), but I ask that you hear me out. Regardless what you may have been taught, Celtic people are no more a part of the white people community than Jews are. In fact, their history as a people is strikingly similar to Jewish history - to include the modern inter-societal problems existing today in both nations. It's been awhile since I've studied Celtic history, so dates wise I'll attempt to be somewhere in the general ball park. But, here is a little of the history. The Celtic languages (Irish, Scottish) are offshoots of African tribal languages. And, before settling in Europe, the Celtic people lived in the Middle East (@ 6 BCE). The Celts were a powerful group of warrior tribes that conquered lands as they moved west toward, first, the Greek empire and then, eventually, Europe. Somewhere around the end of the 4th century BCE, the Celts invaded the Greek empire and originated the country now known as Turkey.

Do You Want To Know How Monogamy Came To Be?

In the Hebrew Bible, there is a clear distinction between a love relationship and a marriage arrangement. Love relationships are depicted, over all, as the blinding-revealing passion for someone who is the object of the individual’s attention. For example, Yaakov’s passion for Rachel (B’reshith 29). King David’s lustful desire for Batsheva (Sh’muel Bet 11-12). Samson’s love for D’leelah, the dominatrix of the Hebrew Bible (Shofetim 16). Just to name a few. A marriage arrangement requires that the one’s married to each other fulfill the ethical and moral legal obligations that are binding upon them under the laws prescribed within the community. Further, love between the ones married to each other is not guaranteed. Divorce is probable, and arrangements for that are legally prescribed in both the Torah and the Talmud. Marital strife is likely to occur due to differences in individual needs or unpredictable circumstances, and must be weathered through by adherence to the marital obligations. Love can flourish between the married partners, and this is the "ideal" if the individuals work together through the struggles and keeping the obligations to nurture its continued existence in the marriage.
