Cartea CONTRA CURENTULUI: Dumnezeu te iubeşte, schimbarea este posibilă!

Se spune că a înota contra curentului este nerecomandat şi chiar periculos. Însă atunci când curentul te duce la moarte, lucrurile stau altfel. Homosexualitatea duce la moarte. Unii homosexuali decid să-şi schimbe viaţa. Cartea ‘Contra Curentului’, disponibilă acum la http://www.contracurentului.com , prezintă câteva astfel de cazuri: lupta lor, căderile, ridicările şi credinţa lor. Şi faptul că în lupta aceasta nu sunt singuri.

Vă scriu aceste rânduri cu ochii plini de lacrimi. Eu aşa sunt destinat, să trăiesc o viaţă de chin. Nu am pe nimeni, pentru că tuturor le este ruşine de mine, colegii îşi bat joc într-una de mine, mă fac să sufăr enorm. Simt o foarte mare singurătate, nu mai rezist. De ce vrea Dumnezeu asta? Cu ce sunt eu de vină? Nu ştiu dacă mai are rost să trăiesc, nu are niciun sens. Dumnezeu mă poate ajuta, dar eu simt că nu mai pot, că mă sfârşesc. Oare voi avea clipe de bucurii în viaţă? Nu prea cred. Oare o să mă mai simt singur? – Ruben

La un procent estimat de 2,5% din populaţie, în prezent există în lume 155 de milioane de homosexuali, dintre care 18 milioane în Europa. Mulţi dintre aceştia îşi duc viaţa în tăcere, temându-se că dacă se află despre orientarea lor sexuală se vor confrunta cu respingerea celor din jur. Pe aceşti homosexuali tăcuţi, paginile lucioase ale revistelor mondene, care prezintă homosexualitatea ca pe un lucru cool sau trendy, îi ajută prea puţin. Cei care se destăinuie în această carte prezintă o altă faţă a homosexualităţii. Unii homosexuali suferă, luptă din răsputeri împotriva atracţiilor faţă de acelaşi sex şi doresc să se schimbe. Mulţi dintre aceştia fac parte din mediul evanghelic. Există homosexuali care cred în Dumnezeu şi Îl văd ca pe singura lor salvare, dar pe lângă credinţă, au nevoie de cineva care să îi asculte. Au nevoie de ajutorul nostru! – Contra Curentului

Etichete:,

Dear friend!
Living at the end of the last days it is a great honor that involves great responsibilities. The forces of evil are trying their best to deceive even “the elect”. Therefore, it is OUR responsibility to take “the full armor of God” and fight for our souls and for the souls of the lost ones.
If you want to know how to be more efficient in this spiritual war, I want to invite you to our “The Good Fight” Peniel camp in Arizona.
More details:
Where: Payson, Arizona at Tonto Rim Christian camp – http://www.tontorimcamp.com (see this site for more details).
When: June, 20-25, 2010
Who’s preaching: Lucian Oniga (Bistrita), Doru Gurban (Phoenix), Iancsi Szasz (Kitchener, CA), Florinel Cimpean (Chicago), Avram Berghiano (Portland) and others.
Who will lead worship: Peniel band – AZ, Agape Worship Team – Portland and others.
The participation fee for the camp that includes housing, 3 meals a day, the preaching/teaching sessions and all the games and activities is only $250/person. You are expected to bring the bed sheets and sleeping bag!
Therefore, if you want to attend our Peniel camp in AZ, please register by sending an email to penielcampusa@yahoo.com and by sending in advance the participation fee in the account no 457007350160 opened at Bank of America, AZ. The number of our campers is limited to 250, therefore, be among the first to register! We would appreciate very much if the above requests will be done by the leader that will join your group (one leader at max. 20 people).
When you come to the camp, please don’t forget to bring with you a Bible, a notebook, pens, flash light, proper camp (decent) clothes, bed sheets, sleeping bag, and a good will!
Other details regarding the rules and schedule can be found at http://www.peniel.ro / Peniel International Ministries following the link attached at the present message.
Please pray with us, so that God will bless the participants with an open heart, the preachers with heavenly anointing and the singers with an attitude of a true worshiper who worships God in the spirit and truth.
I’m looking forward to see God’s face again at Peniel camp! Don’t forget: we are on the winning side, therefore, plan to be there for more training!
Please partner with us by sending this message to all your friends in USA so that they might have the chance to enroll in His army, too! Thank you!
In the name of Peniel International Ministries team,
Lucian Oniga

Doua dintre publicatiile bistritene din spatiul virtual ne-au interogat. Intr-un gest prietenos ne-au oferit ocazia sa lasam sa ne cunoasca opiniile alti bistriteni acum dupa mai multi ani ca imigranti in America.

Simona Lucescu si visul ei american „…Crede că rom­ânii ar trebui sa aibă mai multă încredere în ei şi că n-ar trebui să-şi mai vorbească de rău ţara când sunt în străinătate, fiindcă reprezinţi România chiar dacă ai o altă cetăţenie (a auzit România ponegrită de români chiar în spitalul în care lucrează, a reacţionat şi a fost răsplătită cu aplauzele americanilor).

Daniel Lucescu Automobilist in Phoenix
Aceasta a fost a doua etapa a imigrarii mele spre vest si ultima pentru ca daca mai merg spre vest ajung inapoi de unde am plecat. Am trait cel putin o experienta similara in timpul celor doua etape de imigrare. In Bistrita dupa „oleaca” de conversatie cu o persoana necunoscuta , eram confruntat cu intrebarea: „De unde esti?”. Desi nu vorbesc „moldoveneste” sau romaneste cu accent de prin nordul Moldovei, acel ”oleaca„ ma dadea de gol.
Engleza cu accent de „accent” de care ma folosesc in comunicarea mea cu concetatenii mei americani „americani” ma confrunta cu aceeasi intrebare „Where are you from?”. Si eu le raspund bineteles in limba engleza , ca sunt din Phoenix. Este adevarat dar trebuie sa-i lamuresc totusi de unde sunt dupa repetarea intrebarii cu o alta mimica a fetei lor. Din Romania ,le raspund, dupa care cu o fata luminoasa imi spun, binenteles cu accent, „Ooo ! Nadia Comaneci !” si unii, mai putini au auzit si de ”Ceausescu”.
