Hugo be thy name

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

That old French saying is never more true than when sin manifests.

It has been over a year since Venezuelan Hugo Chavez passed away, but the former president was, politically, brought back to life this week in an all too familiar scene.

The trials and tribulations of Mark Driscoll.

STOP PRESS: 16.10.14 On Tuesday, October 14, Pastor Mark Driscoll submitted his resignation as an elder and lead pastor of Mars Hill Church. 

STOP PRESS: Mark Driscoll Steps Down As Mars Hill Pastor During Review 'The 43-year-old pastor has been under fire in recent months for plagiarism, inappropriate use of church funds and improper behavior toward subordinates.' (Huff Post)

This is somewhat difficult!

We feel we need to be upfront with all of our readers and inform you that we have recently removed videos etc of Mark Driscoll from our site.

We should also be very candid with you and inform you that not everyone on the 'CHRISTIAN FAITH' team has been keen to have Driscoll feature on our site at all! Certainly not for the past few years. There have been worrying signs that all is not as it should be.

If you don't know by now, our Christian brother Mark Driscoll has not been enjoying the best of years - humanly speaking. In fact, this year in particular has been awful - true story!

Allegations of bullying, plagiarism and a lack of accountability has recently seen Driscoll's books removed by a bookselling company; his services as a speaker curtailed and even former colleagues have denounced him on the blogosphere. Driscoll is not the poster boy he once was.

We have been increasingly nervous about recent developments yet we are not sinless either. We run a very responsible website but we are not blameless in all that we do. Suffice to say that it's best (responsible) that we remove Driscoll's published input on our site - whilst he works out how he can best serve the Lord He truly loves. We want only the best for him and also those he has clearly hurt.

Why am I not a boy?

Can you imagine that your husband abandoned you just because you gave birth to two girls? Can you imagine that your father has no interest in you because you are girl? Can you imagine a life growing up as eight years old girl, knowing that your father left you and your mother just because you are girl, not boy?

Bhagya Lakshmi has been living with the truth that her father left her, her sister and mother just because she is girl. It has made a huge impact on her. Her heart is already wounded. She has grown up witnessing the father’s physical abuse and accusations on her mother for not giving birth to boy. Bhagya Lakshmi and her mother used to cry for hours after her father gone out. Her father showed no interest at all to have girls. So he left girls and mother on the street and walked away.
