Why Jesus Christ Had to Die
by Fred Massabni


The answer is of supreme
importance by the Holy Spirit.
We were bom in sin from
Adam. Roman 5:12:
Wherefore. as by one man sin
entered into the world, and
death by sin; and so death
passed upon all men, for that
all have sinned: It is foretold in
the 0 T Genesis 3:15: "And I
will put enmity between thee
and the woman, and between
thy seed and her seed; it shall
bruise thy head, and thou shalt
bruise his heel." It is
prominent in the NT the Word
of God became the baby Jesus
in a manger John 1: 14: "And
the Word made flesh, and

dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as
of the only begotten of the
Father,) full of grace and
truth." Luke 2:34 "And

Among the religious and
cultural factors that influence
converts to enter into full
communion with the Church,
the Blessed Virgin Mary holds
particular prominence. Yet she
is not the possession of the
Catholic Church solely, for
many Protestant Churches are
rediscovering the presence and
role of Mary in life's pilgrimage
of faith.

Backbiting is evil.
Source of evil, according
to Holy Quran, is
Satan.(2:170). Backbiting
is thus, satanic practice,
which leads people away
from \ righteousness.
Apparently it may not look
significant to mock at a
person in his/her absence.
But it is a foul practice..
Holy Quran denounces
the shameful, indecent and
immoral act of backbiting:
"And follow not the
footsteps of Satan; Surely
he is to you an -open
enemy." (2:169)
"Satan surely,
enjoins upon you what is
evil and what is foul."
(2:170)
The verse 2:170 speaks
of the subtle ways by


by ur. waz Miunammad
Barkatullah
which satan misleads
people. He first prompts
people to do deed, which
do not appear to be
manifestly wicked and the
influence of which is
confined to the person of
doer alone. But, then, step
by step, he makes the
deluded person a hardened
sinner,causing him/her to
loose all sense of modesty.
Mockery whether in the
presence of a person or in

I have written before
about the Epsilon Sigma
Alpha (ESA) sorority. These
women from across the
country participate in many
activities scholarship funds,
raising money for Easter
Seals, helping each other
when help is needed. And, in
1972, ESA answered the call
from Danhy Thomas to help
the children of St. Jude. Since
that time, up until the
convention held in July 2004,
they had raised $70 million
for St. Jude.
At the banquet on July 17,
with much fanfare, they
disclosed the amount raised
for the year 2004-05: more
than $10 million.
Consequently, ESA's total

This organization and its

Arab Food

Europe.
In a recent episode of
the Simpsons, the
popular American
animated television
series, a women's
investor group decided
to buy a Middle Eastern
food franchise. They
made the decision
because Arab food is
well matched to
America's growing
demand for healthy fast-
food diet choices.
Initially, however, the
women hesitated: Arad
product names sounded
so foreign to them. The
franchise salesman
quickly solved the
problem; he
"Americanized" the
terms. Falafel became

"crunch patties," tahini
became "flavour sauce,"
and pitta was renamed
"pocket bread."
It was a comical
commentary about
American provincialism.
But is is also a lesson
well-understood in real
life. Arab and Middle
Eastern food exporters
are successfully entering
US markets by carefully
"Americanizing" their
products. Labels are
done in English, using
consumer friendly terms.
Packaging is designed to
appeal to American
tastes and standards. Full
compliance with US
food and safety laws
insures that products
from the Middle East are
among the most

in Israel; and for a sign which
shall be spoken against; (Yea,
a sword shall pierce through
thy own soul also,) that the
thoughts of many hearts may
be revealed." And Mary said,
"My soul doth magnify the
Lord my spirit hath rejoiced in
God my Saviour." It means
she needs a Savior because
she is earthly. Millions are
worshiping Mary rather than
Jesus, because they are
ignorant of the word of God.
John 3:16 "For God so loved
the world, that he gave his


only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have
everlasting life."
The word vicarious
suffering means suffering
endured by one instead of
another! Since Christ is God
incaniate the substitute Is God
himself 'Take heed therefore
unto yourselves, and to all the
flock over the which the Holy

terrorism. The Islamic
Jihad is believed
responsible for the deaths
of more than 100 people
in terrorist attacks in
Israel.
Al-Najjar was named
as an unindicted co-
conspirator when Al-
Arian and eight others
were indicted in 2003. He
was jailed on immigration
charges in 1997 and held
for nearly four years on
secret evidence that he
was a threat to national
security.
His attorneys won his
release while he appealed
his deportation,. which
was upheld.
"It's a mystery to me,"
Georgetown University
professor David Cole,
who represented Al-
Nahar in the fight against
the use of secret evidence,
said Tuesday of the new
filing.
"All the activity that is
alleged predates his being
detained and they

him many years ago,"
Cole said. "Why they are
doing this at this point is a
mystery and it deserves an
answer given the brutal
treatment he's been
afforded at this point."
A different view was
held by Bill West, retired
chief of the National
Security Section for the
former Immigration and
Naturalization Service in
Miami and one of the lead
investigators in Al-
Najjar's case. He said he
was glad to see Al Najjar
named as a defendant.
"Notwithstanding Al-
Najjar being deported,
which was the best action
the U.S. government
could take at the time, his
indictment validates years
of hard work by
investigators and
prosecutors," West said.
"Under better
circumstances, the
indictment would have
come before the
-deportation."
Al-Arian's defense
attorney, William Moffitt,
said he had not seen the

Lebanon
(continued from page 8)
Foreign Ministry issued a
statement saying that "the
upcoming elections should be
conducted according to the
Constitution, which stipulates that
the Parliament elects a new
Lebanese president every six
years." The statement said the
elections should be held under
"Lebanon's full sovereignty and
independence."
But Syria, with about 20,000
toops stationed in Lebanon, has
called the political shots here since
the end of the civil war in 1990.
The Syrian president, Bashar al-
Assad, the son of the country
longtime absolute. ruler, shows
little inclination to change.
Thus, the now ritualized
maneuveinigs in which Lebanese
political figures make te tek over
the mountains to Damascus for
audiences with Mr. Assad The
visit fom Mr Hari, who has long
feuded with Mr Lahou4d lasted
only about 15 minutes, according
to reports in the Lebanese news
media, and an appoint ment for
Mr Jumblatt was canceled.


Mr Lahoud announced his
intentions in a statement on.
Tuesday night that was splashed
across the flont pages of all the
newspapers the next morning
saying, I am ready to assume
another tem in office."
A statement issued by Mr.
Lahouds office added, 'If the
parliamentary majority wants to
assignhimtis rsponsibiliy, he is
ready for it, according to the
recognized constitutional
principles, which define the
means of constitutional
amendment"
This did not cut much ice with
Patriarch Sfeir, the Maronite
leader, who had already created a
considerable political stir when he
declared in a semon last Sunday
that changing the Constitution
would be "wiping out completely
and definitively the shy and poor
democracy that we still brag
about"
The Damascus consultations,
ie said in the senno, showed that
"we have completely lost
sovereigntyofot~o teuitoryandlour
independence and reedom in
choosing our rulers and deciding
our ownafFairs."

Why are so many
Middle Eastern

effort to comply?
Because the US food
market is the world's
largest. The US Bureau

reports that Americans
spend $880bn yes,
billion on personal


consumption of food
and beverages last year.
While America may
be the world's largest

World Links
(continued from page 9)
will conduct joint study and
research projects with
students in the United States;
England, France, and a host
of other countries. The
research projects may be in
science, the environment,
community resources,
business, social science, or
the arts.
Whatever the subject
matter of the projects, the
overall mission of World
Links is to improve
education, economic
opportunities, and global
understanding for youth in
developing countries.
Participating students
develop skills in technology,
entrepreneurship, and
collaboration, equipping
them to participate more
effectively in the global
knowledge-based economy
when they leave school.
Students are also able to share
their perspectives, hopes, and
dreams with their peers in
classrooms throughout the


world. The program is
especially beneficial for girls,
who improve in academic
performance, school
attendance, and
communication skills, as well
as in confidence and self-
esteem.
Before implementing the
program in their classrooms,
teachers undergo 20 hours of
faceto-face training, learning
how to apply information and
communication technologies
in the classroom to improve
educational outcomes and
economic opportunities.
School administrators and
policy makers also learn from
the program especially in
seeing the broader
implications of the skills both
teachers and students acquire.
Although it began as a
pilot project of the World
Bank, in 1999 World Links
spun off.from the World
Bank as an independent, non-
profit organization based in
Washington, DC. In addition

is only reasonable that He
should be given some
satisfaction to remove the
outrage of sin. The death of
Christ supplies this
satisfaction, it satisfies the
justice of God, and the Law of
God. Its involved in
atonement in perpetuation and
in reconciliation. Romans 5:
10: "For if, when we were
enemies, we were reconciled
to God by the death of his Son,


much more, being reconciled,

"Ephesians 2: 16: And that he

(Annunciation, Cana,
Pentecost), and the Vigin of
Spiritual Seaching
(Presentation, Finding in the
Temple, Cana, Calvary). It is
quite natural then to experience
her motherly presence in the
struggles which accompany
conversion, according to Father
Rene Laurentin in A Year of
Grace With Mary.
Conversions to Catholicism
develop from a complex of
various factors. They result
from conviction and personal
experience. But also at play are
conditions and developments
in the Church and society that
often help or hinder
conversions. An instance ofthe
latter scenario is nineteenth
century England in which that
time's theological ferment and
liberalism and the decision of
the British government to
suppress a number ofAnglican
bishoprics gave rise to the
Oxford Movement, which
questioned the Anglican
Church's legitimacy.'

The consequence was a
number of conversions by
prominent intellectuals from
1840 to 1920, the most
noteworthy being John Henry
Newilan. These converts were
usually imbued with an
understanding of the Virgin
Mary and their devotion to her
often preceded their entry into
the Catholic Church.
Following his conversion in
1845, John Henry Newman
(1801-1890) journeyed to
Rome. Upon his return as a
Catholic priest he wrote that lie
"went round by Loreto." As a
pilgrim to the Holy House he
wanted "to get the Blessed
Virgin's blessing." Then he
commented about Mary's
presence in his life. "I have ever
been in her shadow, if I may
say it My college was St.
Mary's, and my church; and
when I went to Littlemore,
there, by my own previous
disposition, our Blessed Lady
was waiting for me. Nor did
she do nothing for me in that
low habitation, of which I
always think with pleasure."


Backbiting
(continued from page 12)
"Control your tongue
and donot backbite."
(Tirmizi)
"The most injurious
thing for a person is to
backbite." (Tirmizi)
"It is mischief to utter
something at the back of a
person,which would
displease him/her when
spoken at his/her face."
(Tirnizi)
"People will be thrown
with face down in to the
Hell, only on account of
the produce of the tongue
when they backbite."
(Tirmizi)
At another occasion,
response to a question,
"What is backbiting?"
"To narrate such things
about your /sister which
he/she dislikes." One of
the Companions asked
further; "Even if my
brother/sister may be like
that.'' Holy Prophet of
Islam replied, "If such
defects as you say be

present in him/her,then
you have backbited; and if
he/she does not have what
you say, then you are
committing slander."
(Muslim)
At another, a
Companion narrates that I
said something unpleasant
about a person to the Holy
Prophet of Islam. The
Holy Prophet of Islam
replied, "I do not like to
hear any thing unpleasant
about any one." (Tirmizi
and Abu Daud.)
It is reported that the
Holy Prophet of Islam
said; "On the Night of
Ascention, I passed by
some people who had
copper nails and they were
clawing their faces and
chests with them. I asked,
"Gibrael: who were those
people?" He replied:
"These are the people who
used to eat the flesh of
human beings that is
indulged in backbiting."

first of all that which I also
received, how that Christ died
for our sins according to the
scriptures; And that he was
buried, and that he rose again
the third day according to the
scriptures: There is a song
about our redeemer "I will
sing of my redeemer and his
wondrous love to me. on the
cruel cross he suffered from
the curse to set me free."
Matthew 28: 18: And Jesus
came and spake unto them,
saying, All power is given
unto me in heaven and in
earth." John 14:6 "Jesus saith,
I am the way, the truth, and the
life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me." John 8:24:
"1 said therefore unto you, that
ye shall die in your sins: for if
ye believe not that I am he, ye
shall die in your sin." Hebrews
2:3: How shall we escape, if
we neglect so great salvation;
which at the first began to be
spoken by the Lord, and was
confirmed unto as by them
that heard him;" My advice,
be 1 ieve in the Lord Jesus
before the wrath of God
comes on the ungodly.
