I arrived in Hong Kong yesterday afternoon with Hub. HK is wonderful! It is vibrant, congested, trendy, exciting, and most of all, there is food, food, food everywhere! My grandparents were from here, my parents lived here a couple of years and my older siblings were born here. I've visited my grandparents often when they were alive so Hk is almost like my second hime. Btw, we are so fortunate because a Level 9 (10 being highest) typhoon just passed through, hitting HK last Saturday. Ivy-Pea, I keep thinking of you whenever I'm eating!! Will post when I have time!
We have some business to attend to tomorrow so I can't stay online too long but hey, I just found out that Anwar won! Yippee! I don't know whether he'll be a good PM (if he gets to be one), but I think I speak for most Malaysians when I say we'll take Anwar over whatever we now have.
This month we've had the Beijing Olympics. In the 2 weeks that the Games were held, 2 big conmen of the Christian world were 'outed': Todd Bentley, homosexual-rapist of a 7-year-old boy (let's not mince words), drug addict, alchoholic (all the while apparently), adulterer, fake healer and class one liar. Mike Guglielmucci, liar and actor-preacher-Christian song-writer who pretended to be sick with (bone?) cancer so his songs about miracle healing will sell. Together they have wrought tremendous destruction in the Christian community, causing many now to be confused, angry and cynical. While I am not gloating, I am happy that these people are exposed, and I strongly believe God was so griefed that He said "I've given them grace enough!" Before you say why judge them, I'll tell you that preachers should be examples of what God wants a person to be and not the other way around. It's one thing to sin or fall into temptation, but to live a double life purposefully to deceive peole in God's name is another thing. It is painful, but we can grow stronger in faith without these con artists around, diverting us from the real focus--God. I have written a longer post on this but will need time to edit. I have not spoken out publicly (see my short comment last May) before this because the Christian community here and everywhere is very defensive. But not as defensive as the extremist religion where death threats are common ways to stifle and control everybody. This is why Christianity even at a time like this, is still strong.
God is great!
