“You shall always have poor with you but not me”- Matthew 26:11-Church can not solve poverty: Standard passage for church leaders to make them happy that poverty has no solution and you got a divine sanction , therefore do not pain yourself , enjoy the Papacy …… for the poor always ye have with you, and me ye have not always.
Accra Confession of World Alliance of Reformed Churches (WARC)-2004-In classical liberal economics, the state exists to protect private property and contracts in the competitive market. Through the struggles of the labour movement, states began to regulate markets and provide for the welfare of people. Since the 1980s, through the transnationalization of capital, neoliberalism has set out to dismantle the welfare functions of the state. Under neoliberalism the purpose of the economy is to increase profits and return for the owners of production and financial capital, while excluding the majority of the people and treating nature as a commodity.
Anti-Christian Library-Peculiarity of this library is that , the authors criticized the Church doctrines and passed comments on Gospel system. Most of the writers are renowned in their respective fields of learning and thoughts. Therefore it is not easy to discredit them as unnecessary.
Arthur Schopenhauer on the Christian System-I may mention here another fundamental error of Christianity, an error which cannot be explained away, and the mischievous consequences of which are obvious every day: I mean the unnatural distinction Christianity makes between man and the animal world to which he really belongs. It sets up man as all-important, and looks upon animals as merely things. Brahmanism and Buddhism, on the other hand, true to the facts, recognize in a positive way that man is related generally to the whole of nature, and specially and principally to animal nature; and in their systems man is always represented by the theory of metempsychosis and otherwise, as closely connected with the animal world.
THE ANTICHRIST by Friedrich W. Nietzsche-This saintly anarchist, who aroused the people of the abyss, the outcasts and “sinners,” the Chandala of Judaism, to rise in revolt against the established order of things—and in language which, if the Gospels are to be credited, would get him sent to Siberia today—this man was certainly a political criminal, at least in so far as it was possible to be one in so absurdly unpolitical a community.
Birth Day of Jesus was 6th January-Eusebius was appointed as Bishop of Caesarea around 320 CE and he was a die-hard admirer of the genius of Constantine. In his book The Life of Constantine (Vita Constantini in Greek), he said: “It is as if the religion of Abraham is at last fulfilled, not in Jesus, but in Constantine.”
Didache or The Lord’s teaching to the heathen by the Twelve Apostles-3rd Century CE-Ἡ μὲν οὖν τῆς ζωῆς ἐστιν αὕτη· πρῶτον ἀγαπησεις τὸν θεὸν τὸν ποιήσαντά σε, δεύτερον τὸν πλησίον σου ὡς σεαυτόν· πάντα δὲ ὅσα ἐὰν θελήσῃς μὴ γίνεσθαί σοι, καὶ σὺ ἄλλῳ μὴ ποίει.-The way of life is this : first, you must love God who made you. Second, you must love your neighbour as yourself. Whatsoever you would not want someone to do to you, do not do that to another.
Early Christian Library Before 400 CE-And in this struggle to legitimize Jesus we lost and completely lost Historical Bethelhamian village long-haired Jew Jesus. Then our newly converted Paul never went to see Mother Mary or Josef of Arimathea generate doubt about the claim of the early Christian church.
Excommunication of Martin Luther and his followers: Papal Bull ‘Decet Romanum Pontificem’-Pope Leo X-On all these we decree the sentences of excommunication, of anathema, of our perpetual condemnation and interdict; of privation of dignities, honours and property on them and their descendants, and of declared unfitness for such possessions; of the confiscation of their goods and of the crime of treason; and these and the other sentences, censures and punishments which are inflicted by canon law on heretics and are set out in our aforesaid missive, we decree to have fallen on all these men to their damnation.

Exsurge Domine: Condemning the Errors of Martin Luther 1520-We beseech you also, Paul, to arise. It was you that enlightened and illuminated the Church by your doctrine and by a martyrdom like Peter’s. For now a new Porphyry rises who, as the old once wrongfully assailed the holy apostles, now assails the holy pontiffs, our predecessors.
Gospel of Thomas-Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.
If Jesus is Christ then purgatorial washing, souls`day, celebrating dead body is stupidity-Therefore, in reality, every believer is already completely holy in God's sight as a result of the Savior's sacrifice on the cross 2000 years ago. This complete cleansing flows from the miracle of the cross. (1 Peter 2:24,25) Thankfully, every Christian is already "seated with Christ in the heavenly realms." (Eph. 2:6) The complete purification of a sinner's soul occurs the moment the new birth takes place (John 3:6,7) in a person's heart through faith in Christ. (John 1:12; John 3:16)
Kingdome of God by the new Covenant: from De Cive by Thomas Hobbes-Now, although the Kingdom of God by CHRIST to be established with a New Covenant, were Heavenly, we must not, therefore, think, that they, who believe in CHRIST would make that Covenant, were not so to be governed here on the Earth too, as that they should persevere in their faith, and obedience promised by that Covenant. For in vain had the Kingdom of heaven been promised, if we were not to have been led into it

THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION: R.G. Ingersoll-Without desiring to hurt the feelings of anybody, I propose to give a few reasons for thinking that a few passages, at least, in the Old Testament are the product of a barbarous people
The Civil Church Law in America-In this country, the full and free right to entertain any religious belief, to practice any religious principle, and to teach any religious doctrine, which does not violate the laws of morality and property, and which does not infringe personal rights, is conceded to all. The law knows no heresy, is committed to the support of no dogma, the establishment of no sect.
The origin of the Gospels has proved a Serbonian Bog-The origin of the Gospels has proved a Serbonian bog, in which many writers who have attempted an explanation have floundered without finding solid ground. Scarcely two writers agree. Why should there be any doubt in a matter of so much importance, where the evidence could so readily be obtained at the time they were written, and so safely guarded and preserved?
The Sacrament: John Calvin: 1537-The Scholastic dogma (to glance at it in passing), by which the difference between the sacraments of the old and the new dispensation is made so great, that the former did nothing but shadow forth the grace of God, while the latter actually confer that it, must be altogether exploded. Since the apostle speaks in no higher terms of the one than of the other, when he says that the fathers ate of the same spiritual food, and explains that that food was Christ ( Cor. x. ), who will presume to regard as an empty sign that which gave a manifestation to the Jews of true communion with Christ?
QUANTUM OF PUNISHMENT-The learned counsel for the accused No. 5 was at pains to persuade us that the said accused is now about 70/75 years of age and at this distance of time, it may not be appropriate to send him back to jail. Taking overall view of the matter, we are not impressed by this submission. Even in case of offence under Section 326, IPC, which commended to the High Court, the same was punishable with imprisonment for life or with imprisonment of either description which may extend to ten years and also liable to fine. Had it been a conviction under Section 326, as aforesaid, the sentence of only about five months in the facts of the present case, by no stretch of imagination, was adequate.
Whether the decree passed on a compromise can be challenged by the stranger to the proceedings in a separate suit?
The appellant could file a suit for protection of his right, title or interest devolved on the basis of the stated sale deed dated 6th January, 1984, allegedly executed by one of the party (Sampatiya) to the proceedings in the partition suit, which could be examined independently by the Court on its own merits in accordance with law.
The common parlance test”, “marketability test”, “popular meaning test” are all tools for interpretation to arrive at a decision on proper classification of a tariff entry. These tests, however, would be required to be applied if a particular tariff entry is capable of being classified in more than one heads.
