cute date idea: five year mission in space exploring strange new worlds, seeking out new life and new civilizations, boldly going where no man has gone before
A bee can become drunk from fermented nectar and other bees will punish it by chewing off its legs.
"Hey, Pete is drunk again lets chew his legs off"
I nearly choked.
They were selling stuff inside the church or whatever it name was
it was the Court or Garden of the Gentiles, so it was legal for them to sell stuff, but Jesus didn’t like it. so, yeah. even the Son of Man got violent at times.
"You see, while the sale of the animals and other items used for worship seems harmless and even helpful, we need to understand that it was anything but innocent. A dove that cost, say $1.00 on the street might cost $25.00 inside the Temple. The people who came to worship were being charged grossly inflated prices. The money changers were just as guilty. They charged a 10-12 percent exchange rate. They were also guilty of extortion. On top of this, the High Priest and his family were paid a percentage of the profits, on top of the fee the sellers had to pay to gain permission to sell in the Temple. It was a big money racket that preyed on poor. The Temple was nothing but a “den of robbers”. [x]
So Jesus was angry that the very place where God was supposed to be worshiped was using its religious power to extort money from the poor and (if they couldn’t afford to buy one of the approved doves) was actually keeping them away from God.
Jesus was always angriest with religious people who were using their religion to hurt others:
13“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.…
You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.[x]
Which I feel is something a lot of us Christians could do to remember these days.
I get the distinct feeling that Jesus would be doing a lot of table-flipping if he came back and saw the state of Christianity today.
Apparently it isn’t doing too much better than when he was roaming around in the first place.

Anne Hathaway with The Princess Diaries producer Whitney Houston
Please tell me you knew she was a producer in this movie.
Girl yes, this and the Cheetah Girls.
Didn’t know either of that.
Whitney cared about uplifting young women and mentoring them. Her doing these movies was just an example of how much she cared.
It bothers me how this isn’t promoted, like everything else the world knows about whitney.
^^^^ there you go… Smh.
