ህመም የለም ፣ መዳፍ የለም ፥ መስቀል የለም፣ አክሊል የለም

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on September 27, 2021

ህመም የለም ፣ መዳፍ የለም ፥ እሾህ የለም ፣ ዙፋን የለም። ሐሞት የለም ፣ ክብር የለም ፥ መስቀል የለም፣ አክሊል የለም።

በመስቀል ላይ ሣለ የገሃነመ እሳትን ጠባቂ ጭፍሮች ያስደነገጣቸው ጌታችን መድኃኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ነው!

በሰውና በእግዚአብሔር መካከል ያለውን የጸብ ግርግዳ አፍርሶ በመስቀሉ ሠሌዳ ላይ በደሙ ቀለምነት የሕይወታችንን መጽሐፍ የጻፈልን ጌታችን መድኃኒታችን ኢየሱስ ክርስቶስ ነው። መስቀሉ፣ ጦሩ፣ ስሙ ጋሻችን ሆኖልና ድነነናል።

💭 በአቅራቢያዬ የምትገኘውን ውብ የቤተ ክርስቲያን ሕንፃ ዛሬ ስጎበኛት ይህን በአክሊል ቅርጽ ተሠርቶ የቆመውን መብራት አብሬ ለማየት ቻልኩ። ከእኅታችን የመስቀል ወረብ ጋር በእውነት ድንቅ ድንቅ ነው!

አቤቱ በዘመኑ ሁሉ የጥፋትና የኃጢአት አውሬ (ዲያብሎስ) እንዳይቀርበን በሐጹረ ቅዱስ መስቀልህ አጥርነት ጠብቀን፤ አሜን!

✞✞✞መስቀል ኃይላችን ነው!✞✞✞

አፍሪካዊቷ ግዙፍ ዓይጥ “የሰላም ሽልማት” ተሰጣት | ከቄሮ ዓይጥ ተሽላ

A year on from his Nobel peace prize, critics accuse Abiy Ahmed’s government of an authoritarian shift.

“Very seldom has the legacy of a Nobel laureate been questioned so early, already during the first year incumbency.” — Kjetil Tronvoll, professor at Bjorknes University in Oslo.

Ethiopia Ranks 139th from 163 Countries in The 2018 Global Peace Index

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 6, 2018

In 2016, Ethiopia ranked 119th, and in 2017, 134th.

In eastern Africa, there seems little sign of an end to the four-year old civil war in South Sudan, and the emergence of a new faction in the country under President Salva Kiir’s former military chief Paul Malong. This is likely to prolong the breakdown in

peacefulness of the world’s youngest country.

Ethiopia fell six places to 139 after Amhara protesters targeted Tigrayan business interests and foreign investors, leading to deteriorations in its scores for violent demonstrations and political terror. Neighbouring Kenya, in contrast, gained three places as a result of a reduced number of attacks by militants allied to Somalia’s al-Shabaab movement and fewer refugees coming over its north-eastern border.

The largest deterioration in the region was recorded by the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where President Joseph Kabila’s refusal to step down at the end of his second and final term at the end of 2016 has led to increasing violence, particularly in the country’s eastern provinces. The DRC now has more than five million people internally displaced and violence is expected to continue to escalate ahead of elections scheduled for December 2018, despite the presence of 15,000 UN peacekeepers.

Measuring peace in a complex world: the 2018 Global Peace Index shows the world is less peaceful today than at any time in the last decade.

The world has become less peaceful in the past year as longstanding global conflicts remain unresolved and the United States and other world powers face political instability, an international study finds.

The 12th annual “Global Peace Index” by the Institute for Economics and Peace, an independent non-profit think tank based in Australia, scored 163 independent states and territories according to their levels of peacefulness. It found the world became 0.27 percent less peaceful compared to 2016, with 92 countries deteriorating in peacefulness and just 71 countries improving. The think tank published the index on Wednesday.

The study assessed global peace through three filters: safety and security in society, extent of ongoing domestic or international conflict and the degree of militarization. Researchers considered 23 peace indicators to determine scores, including the number of casualties from terrorism and conflicts in that country, the number of murders per capita and the ratio of military spending to gross domestic product. Each indicator was scored on a 5-point scale.

The Middle East and North Africa remained the world’s least peaceful region, and the four most peaceful regions – Europe, North America, Asia-Pacific and South America – all recorded deteriorations.

Contrary to public perception, many countries decreased in militarization. Instead, the study attributed the gradual fall in peacefulness to a range of factors, including “increased terrorist activity, the intensification of conflicts in the Middle East, rising regional tensions in Eastern Europe and northeast Asia, and increasing numbers of refugees and heightened political tensions in Europe and the U.S.”

Europe – which has held the position of most peaceful region through each iteration of the index – faced increased political instability, impact of terrorism and perceptions of criminality, as 23 of the 36 European countries lessened in peacefulness. Also, no Nordic countries are more peaceful today than they were in 2008, researchers found.

The U.S. joined six other G20 members – Mexico, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, India, Turkey and Russia – in the group of 50 least peaceful countries in the world.

The U.S. ranked 121st out of 163 in the global assessment, falling from 114th and 103rd in the 2017 and 2016 Global Peace Indexes, respectively. While the U.S. essentially held its rank relative to other countries’ movements, its level of peacefulness declined to its lowest since 2011. Researchers largely attributed the drop in score to a hardening in partisanship in American politics – despite a reduced impact from terrorism, as well as Washington’s curtailed operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and a gradual reduction in the homicide rate during the past decade.

It’s worthwhile to consider a nation’s progress in terms of positive peace, or the attitudes, institutions and structures that create and sustain peaceful societies, says Steve Killelea, executive chairman of the Institute for Economics and Peace. And, civil resistance movements and societal responses are often a good indicator of a country’s positive peace levels.

“Countries with higher positive peace can absorb much bigger shocks than countries that are weak in positive peace,” he says.

That means countries that have the ability to adapt and adjust to challenges – whatever the disagreement or pressure within society may be – are more likely to maintain peace than countries without those adaptive qualities. Such countries “can suppress change but only to a certain point” before violence breaks out, Killelea says.

Iceland topped the listing with the lowest score, making it the most peaceful country and retaining the title it has held since 2008. New Zealand, Austria, Portugal and Denmarkround out the top 5.

Meanwhile, Syria, a nation plagued by civil war, was ranked as the least peaceful country for the sixth consecutive year. Afghanistan, South Sudan, Iraq and Somalia scored among the 5 least peaceful.

As the gap widens between the least and most peaceful countries, the global economy is taking a very real hit.

The global economic impact of violence of roughly $14.8 trillion in 2017 was equivalent to 12.4 percent of the world’s gross domestic product or nearly $2,000 per person, according to researchers. Violence in the U.S. last year cost Americans nearly $4,500 per person.

Abortion Kills Conscience and Destroys Peace

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on February 7, 2013

Little-Known Mother Theresa Interview (Video linked below)

JesusHoldingAbortedBabyThe assertion by Mother Theresa of Calcutta that abortion is the “greatest threat to peace in the world” has become proverbial in the pro-life world. In 1985, she reiterated and expanded on the point in an interview with New York journalist and pro-life activist Thom O’Connor that, until recently, has been almost unknown.

In the O’Connor interview, which is now publicly available after being uploaded onto Youtube, Mother Teresa explained that the unborn child, is created “in the image of God for greater things, to love and be loved. That is why it is such a terrible thing to think that the mother, to whom the child has been given as a gift of God, could destroy it.”

“That’s why I think that abortion has become the greatest destroyer of peace today because it destroys the life of the child, but also destroys the conscience of the mother also, and for years and years, she knows that she has murdered her own child,” she said.

The famed humanitarian called it “something unbelievable” that the “mother can murder her own child.”

Where Are Peace & Love?

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 1, 2009

peace1

Lately, everyone is talking  emotionally about Peace, Human Rights, Justice and Democracy, yet, everyone does seem to work against these principles. We have ‘Human Rights’ in a world where humans have less and less rights. We have ‘peace’ in a world that is not peaceful. We have justice in a world that is not just. We even do have anti-racism conferences where the participants are racists.

Everyone can see that the devil is the one who runs the government in so many countries. That’s why so much hatred and wars are present everywhere. How can there be any peace, while The Individual’s inwardness ain’t peaceful?! We see nations at war who also see themselves, ultimately, as part of a “peace process.” They depict war as a temporary interlude to the peace that they feel they are working toward in the only way available to them. Yet, since peace is usually followed by more war, “peace dialogs or processes” inevitably become “war processes. First we build houses, roads and cities, and then we fight against each other and destroy everything we have built – and then we call a cease-fire and bring together a huge amount of money to rebuild what we’ve just destroyed. This obviously looks a child’s game. I really don’t know, whether war is an interlude during peace or peace is an interlude during war.

It has been said that all nations are either preparing for war, at war or recovering from war. This is partly because men often think they must go to war in search of peace. The outcome of war usually involves a temporary truce, but always fails to yield permanent peace. This is because men cannot, and will never, find the way to peace on their own. They have no chance to solve the problem of achieving world peace. Governments will continue promoting war and genocide over and over again, till The Kingdom of God come.

We humans need to care for each other if we would like to minimize the damages that we inflict on the well-being of our own societies. If we care for each other, unite and do things like God intended us to be, living in love, and peace, and it did please God, there will be no more sufferings and diseases — everyone will be healed. Without God man will destroy everything. We can see this happening now, unless we choose to keep our eyes closed.

The most powerful weapon to conquer the evil Devil is humility. For as he does not know at all how to employ it, neither does he know how to defend himself from it.

Our justest fathers, our warm-hearted mothers always suggest a posture of humility, self-sacrifice , love and tolerance.
