Why did Stephen Paddock kill 58 people?

Saturday 4 August 2018

The investigation after the massacre in Las Vegas last year has ended. But still it’s a riddle what drives Stephen Paddock to kill 58 people with cold blood.

It has been called “USA’s Breivik case”. On October 1st last year, 64-year-old Stephen Paddock began shooting from his 32nd floor hotel room in Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas.

The goal was easy to hit: before the killers had an audience of 22,000 people who experienced a concert during the Route-91 National Festival.

And the 64-year-old was heavily armed: Inside the hotel room he had an entire weapon store – more than 20 heavy weapons and thousands of bullets.

When Stephen Paddock one hour later took his own life, he had murdered 58 people.

Why did he kill?

Friday the investigation was terminated. It has been going on for 10 months, hundreds of people have been questioned and several thousand working hours have been laid down.

But the police still answer the most important question: What was the motive of Stephen Paddock’s unthinkable wrongdoing?

Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who has led the investigation, said.

But Lombardo concludes that there is no evidence that other than the massacre was involved in the massacre in Las Vegas.

Active gambler

An important part of the investigation has been about Stephen Paddock’s economy and his life as a notorious gambler.

People in the casino environment in Las Vegas describe the later mass murderer as a skilled player with video poker as a specialty. According to investigators, he had a turnover of just over NOK 12 million in casinos in two years.

However, according to investigators, Paddock had a significant game gala and he should have worn mental problems in the time before committing the wrongdoing.

Not terrorism

US authorities have established that the massacre in Las Vegas has no connection with international terrorism.

But the company MGM Resorts International, which owns the hotel where the murderer lived, attempts to get a federal court to explain the wrongdoing as terror.

With such a classification, the company will release insurance liability to survivors and survivors.

My comment about it is:

We have all the inner demons we have to trade with each day. Most people do this well. But then you have a high suicide rate among those who struggle mentally. Some will actually bring as many as possible as they leave this world.

The people have stopped believing in God long ago. They believe that wealth, love success is all that matters. When this fails for them and they no longer manage to hold a front with these entities, the road down to the depths and hell is very short.

It is a spiral of evil that kills. Satan controls these people into murder and suicide. They do not know that there has been a contract for the extinction of these souls. Every time it succeeds, is a tribute to Satan.

All non-believers think this is just bullshit, but there’s more in the world than they think. They can choose to see it or just pass the story as a sentence.

Now recently, one of the world’s most famous physicists acknowledged that God exists. He says that space is created by a higher intelligence. And now that Einstein’s laws are now tested and approved, we can finally finish the question of God’s existence.

I think we will get an increase of desperate people who want to end their lives in a big final. There will be no traces of their motives, because the subject is ruin and it disappears with the perpetrator’s death.

Our mental health is on offer and the help is absolutely essential. People who need help in the early stages get no help as the device that should catch them does not exist yet. Do not think this is coming, we are concerned that everyone will be like us. If you are not one of us, we will give you a minimum of help and money.

The community is a bit elite and you must be a champion of success in life. Then you get to know today is to become a debt slave from the first-bought house (Norway), car loans on the house and you are debt-free when you retire.

Young people today only have debt to look forward to, and those who are older have an old age that is empty without God. A life without God is almost condemned to failure, we can look at the divorce stance, the gay and pedophile priests. The human-ethics project fails in all areas.

Only God can help these people, in the faith of a Savior.

“Norway’s Magna Carta” back to Norway after 500 years

Saturday 4 August 2018

After a long life in foreignity is now the most beautiful and elaborate edition of Magnus Lagabøte’s national law back in the country.

“This edition of the National Act is equally important for people in Norway that Magna Carta is for the British,” says national librarian Aslak Sira Myhre.

He is not afraid to turn on big rum when comparing this special edition of the National Law, called Codex Hardenbergianus, with the British Constitutional Documents of 1215.

Followed by armed guards

The Landsloven Act was drafted in Bergen in 1274. The version called Codex Hardenbergianus is a particularly beautiful and costly version of Norway’s first national law, dating back to the second quarter of the 1300s. Since the 16th century it has been in Copenhagen.

Today, the national clan came back to Norway, escorted by armed guards. The National Library has signed a five-year deposit agreement with the Royal Library in Copenhagen.

“There are 31 different editions of the National Act, and they are all slightly different. But this edition has calligraphy, drawings and art that looks like it is taken from the “Rose Name”, says Aslak Sira Myhre, referring to the film and the book with action from an Italian monastery in the Middle Ages.

King Magnus Lagabøte’s national act served as a law for Norway until Christian V’s Norwegian law was introduced in 1687. Aslak Sira Myhre states that the Land Act is a unique proof of Norway’s status in the Middle Ages.

“It is based on the earlier land laws, such as Gulating and Frostating. Lagabøte collected these into one law, which in addition is based on the legislative work in Europe at that time, says the National Librarian.

Also applies today

He says that this was the second national law in Europe after the state of Castile in present Spain.

“Norway was one of the first countries to get a national law, and it was extremely modern for its time,” says Aslak Sira Myhre, indicating that it still affects us today.

– The Allemannsrätt, ie the right to go forest and land and fish and pick berries, is in the national law, thus building on principles that are older than the Viking age. This means that there is a connection between these laws and how we judge right and wrong today.

Aslak Sira Myhre says that the manuscript collection will now be kept in the security magazine under the National Library at Solli Plass in Oslo until it becomes part of the permanent exhibition that will open until autumn.

– “Lovely” to hand over it

Pernille Drost, director of the Royal Bilbiotek in Copenhagen, is very pleased that Norwegians can see book treasure in the next five years. So it’s far from a heavy heart she lends it away:

“It’s a very magnificent book and it’s nice to get it over, so Norwegians of all ages can see. I think the book with its magnificent illustrations will appeal as much to the kids as to the adults!

Norwegians among the worst in global climate change

Friday 3 August 2018

Today we have “spent up” the earth’s resources for this year. If everyone were to live like Norwegians, we would need 3.6 Earths.

Every year, the date of “Earth’s Overcrowding Day” or “Earth Overshoot Day” crawls longer and longer.

The mark, which falls this year on August 1, tells us when we have used up the Earth’s resources for the current year. The rest of the year people use natural resources that the earth needs more than a year to recover.

Earlier than ever

As last year, the date has fallen earlier than ever, as much as two months earlier than in 2000.

And Norway, like other western countries, is very poor when it comes to organic footprints. Of 134 countries as the Global Footprint Network think tank has listed, Norway is number 19.

If the whole world were to live as Norwegians, the date of Earth’s overtaking day had already fallen on April 12, or we would have needed 3.6 earthquakes in a year.

“A small proportion of the world’s population uses most of the Earth’s resources today. And it’s usually the northern and western part of the world, “says CICERO researcher Marianne Tronstad Lund.

Missing debate on division of responsibilities

Tronstad Lund points to Norway’s high gross national product and revenues as a cause of Norwegians overuse.

“It’s enough that we have a less thoughtful attitude towards use and throw. We buy things we strictly do not need, as well as having a relatively high food win.

The senior researcher thinks there is a perspective that should be highlighted in the debate on responsibilities, when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions from production and consumption:

“Norwegians are big consumers of goods produced in other countries, and we do not have to take responsibility for emissions from production in those countries.

– Should Norway take responsibility for the emissions from production in countries we import goods from?

– If we agree that those who use the service are responsible for the emissions, we should.

– It happens too little, too late

WWF World Wildlife Fund believes the reason Norway is getting out of the list to the “Global Footprint Network” is that we are not living sustainable.

“We must take it more serious that the day comes earlier and earlier each year. It’s happening too little, and it’s too late, says WWF adviser Marte Conradi.

“This year is the date one day earlier than in 2017, does it mean that it’s only one day that we begin to control overuse?

“We have reduced the overuse, but we still have not managed to reverse it, then the day had come later. We soon use resources as if we had two planets, and it’s dramatic.

Ask people to take responsability

According to Conradi, it is important that everybody takes their share of responsibility by making changes in the way we live.

“There are many small steps you can take that will contribute in general. For example, you can drive more collectively, or eat a little less meat.

“Many argue that Norwegians can not make major changes worldwide and that other countries are bigger” environmentalists “than us. What do you think about it?

“It is an argument we often hear. But the environment is just as much a collective responsibility, and the fact that someone is disgusting does not mean that we should not take our part of responsibility.

Here is the WWF World Natural Fund’s list of simple steps you can take to reduce your climate footprint:

Reduce consumption by thinking about an extra time before buying something new
Buy good quality items and repair them when it’s broken
If you have to throw something, make sure that life is recycled
Fly less privately and at work
Use public transport, the bike and the legs
Apply energy-efficient solutions in your own home and at work

Political commitment to reuse

State Secretary at the Ministry of Climate and Environment, Atle Hamar, emphasizes that Norway is the leader in climate and environmental policy.

He refers to the government’s commitment to the circular economy as an important step in reducing Norwegians’ global climate impact.

“It’s about ensuring that resources are used and reused more efficiently, which will strengthen the green competitiveness of business.

He acknowledges that it is problematic for Norwegians to travel more by air than average, but says that long-term technology development could make the aircraft industry less polluting.

“In the course of 10-15 years, we probably have electric aircraft at shorter distances. In addition, airlines use advanced biofuels that have an environmental impact.

According to Hamar, reduced emissions are also targets for several of Norway’s largest sectors.

“We have a maritime sector that is in full swing with a transition from fossil fuels to low emissions or zero emissions. In addition, Norway has taken a leading role in making the transport sector emissions-free and making it profitable to choose electric cars.

The truth about Islam

Thursday 2 August 2018

 Islam does not mean peace. Mark Durie, specializing in Islamic language, says in the Independent Journal article that Islam was first called the religion of peace as late as 1930. This became more popular in the 70’s since Muslims would present their religion to the West. The Qur’an never says that Islam is the religion of peace.

Nor does this do the tradition of Muhammad. The Arabic word Islam means “surrender.” It is attached to the word, “salaam”. Durie thinks this is a military metaphor that comes from aslama meaning “surrender”. This means that one is surrendered in warfare. That was the way Muhammad used the word. He said to his neighbor, “If you surrender, you will have peace”.

Peace then comes after the war, as one has surrendered to Islam. According to David Cook, “Understanding Jihad”, Muhammad was directly involved in 86 battles. This is more than 9 battles a year. Afterwards, Islam spread through the sword. To quote Nabeel directly, “Apart from the first thirteen years of Islamic history, when Muslims were not enough to fight, Islam has always had an elaborate practice or doctrine of war.”

So war is the only thing Islam can promise. The war against the unbelievers, ie us.

How should Christians relate to their new countrymen?

Thursday 2 August 2018

How do we as Christians relate to the growing number of immigrants arriving in Norway? Head of the Team Interact Daniel Profits and Accountant Helga Røyland held a sparkling seminar that encouraged the audience to engage in the efforts to openly open those who come and include them in our churches.

Everyone will hear the gospel

Daniel encourages Norwegian churches to be conscious of their call to reach all people with the gospel.

-We see that many immigrants who come to Norway do not have a community they are a part of. We have more than enough Christians in Norway to take care of all who come. The church has an important role to play in the inclusion of our new countrymen, including incorporating them into our churches.

Fear prevents contact

Helga believes many attitudes are turning to reach our new countrymen in the local community.

“I think many Christians have appreciated the work that has been done in foreign services on other continents more than work among our new countrymen in Norway. However, I experience that people become more aware of reaching people living in the local community. I think fear is a factor that prevents many in contact with our new countrymen. The best way to deal with this fear is to go to the Bible and read about Jesus’ love in the face of people.

Great work in Norway

-How do you have tips for those who want to meet immigrants?

-I think you should ask Jesus to show you where to go. And do not be afraid, he answers.

Daniel points out that there is a lot of good work in Norway aimed at immigrants that people can engage in.

-I want to say, throw yourself on or let someone else get lost on you. There is already a lot of good work aimed at immigrants in Norway. Organizations like KIA and Team Interact have a lot of good work all over the country. Right now we are launching a new website that we have called Immimeets (Immimeets.no) that can help immigrants and Norwegians unite. We are concerned that our new farmers will be aware of what multicultural work exists and that Norwegians can see where they can volunteer. We want to become a Finn.no for all multicultural Christian work in Norway.

Friendship means everything

– Can you make a real difference, even if you have little time to create new relationships?

Absolutely! I was back with a friend who came from another country. He told me that our friendship meant so much to him. But the only thing I had done was eating his food, and he asked for help for accommodation. We had just spent time together. There is often no more available. People who come to Norway want first and foremost a relationship with Norwegians, says Daniel. Helga agrees.

– You can not reach everyone, but for a person you can mean very much. What these people need is a friend, a relationship. You do not have to be a psychologist for those who have experienced a lot of pain. All you can do is go with them and be a friend. There can be so much to say.

My comment on this is:

Of course, we would like to welcome most people. But Muslims are a sect we should all fear. They will kill us unbelief and do not want us to be very good friends. They are keen to illuminate Islam as a peace-loving religion. In truth, there is a violent ideology that is worse than Nazism.

Western politicians do not want to see what ideology Islam is, they believe everyone should participate in the value of democracy. But Muslims do not want democracy, they want sharia-starred countries. They only wait until they are in majority and they do with much higher birth rates. Therefore, we must fear this and do something about it quickly.

The men of faith in Japan

Thursday 2 August 2018

Did you know that among the world’s least reached peoples, are the Japanese considered the second largest?

The coutry counts about 127 million people. Even though there has been a mission in the country for more than 50 years, less than one percent of them have received Jesus. Should we conclude that it is an impossible task to reach the Japanese with the gospel? No, of course not. We will still run a mission in Japan. But perhaps it might be useful to think of some new thoughts for how we can go forward to reach more Japanese with the message of Jesus.

The situation today is that 7 out of 10 Christian Japanese are women. We in the Norea Medieval Mission have recently prayed to God that He will show us how to go forward to bring more Japanese men to Jesus. It is He who by His Holy Spirit ultimately calls people to repentance. But all who have received Jesus and who have become His followers on earth are in different ways Jesus’ hands and feet.

Japanese men often have strong loyalty to the workplace, much like soldiers have to their superiors. High labor standards are basically positive, but only up to a certain point. When the loyalty of employers and colleagues becomes so extreme that it is at the expense of the relationships of their own family, it becomes unhealthy. Ultimately, such an attitude can be directly destructive both for the individual family and for society as a whole.

Having discussed the situation in Japan with national Christian and foreign missions to the country, it has begun to draw an interesting picture. Could it be thought that the key to reaching Japanese men with the gospel of Jesus could be to establish small groups of people? We think so. Therefore, we are now launching Men of Belief in Japan. The study plan, which is specifically aimed at men, has been thoroughly tested and tested in a number of countries. Call for repentance and follow-up of Jesus goes hand in hand with the profound of Christian values ​​for family life and society. Teaching is disseminated both through written material and via radio and the Internet.

We have good partners in Japan who are ready to launch the Men of Belief as soon as the material is translated into Japanese, and they expressly believe that this may be a key to reaching out with the gospel in this country. Will you stand with us in prayer that this commitment will succeed and that the work will lead to a spiritual breakthrough in Japan? Imagine, in this way, that we could help reach the world’s second largest undead group of people with the gospel of Jesus!

The Netherlands introduces a ban on burka and nikab

Thursday 2 August 2018

The National Assembly in the Netherlands has by a large majority decided to introduce a ban on burka, nikab and other cover of the face of schools and hospitals.

The so-called burka ban also applies to public transport and public buildings, where there is also a ban on using helmets or otherwise covering the face.

The proposal for burka ban was first promoted 13 years ago by outer right politician Geert Wilders, who has repeatedly criticized Islam.

The House of Representatives of the Dutch National Assembly voted for such a ban in 2016, but it would take another three years before the decision in the upper house. It is expected that the ban will come into force next year.

How the prohibition is to be practiced and who will enforce it is highly unclear. One of the questions raised is whether bus drivers should deny passengers with nikab or burka access.

Lawyers are critical of the ban, and the opposition calls it symbolism because there are hardly more than 400 women carrying burka in the Netherlands.

The ban on cover has come into force in Denmark

Thursday 2 August 2018

Demonstrators in Copenhagen and Aarhus dressed in burka and nikab when they demonstrated Wednesday against the Danish cover-up ban.

The ban came into force the same day, two months after its adoption in the parliament.

The police had announced in advance that they would not intervene against demonstrators wearing burka and nikab, reports Denmark’s Radio (DR).

Knight Helmet

The bourgeois minority government received the proposal through the support of Social Democracy and the Danish People’s Party.

The ban on cover is primarily considered a ban on women wearing the full-fledged Muslim garments nikab and burka. However, according to DR, it is now also forbidden to wear loose beard, Finnish caps, mouth binders and knight helmets. Exceptions may be given, for example, in the case of Christmas gifts, and it is up to the police to assess how much coverage is required to be affected by the ban.

Get fines

In case of first offense, the person is fined with a fine of 1,000 Danish kroner. From the fourth violation, the boat is doubled.

It is not known how many women carry nikab and burka in Denmark, but several of them have stated that they will continue to wear the religious garments despite the ban.

Started kindergarten for the children of the Coptic martyrs

Thursday 2 August 2018

Mama Maggie and Stefanus the children have started kindergartens in the village of the men killed by IS on a beach in Libya in 2015.

Most still remember the video from 2015 by the 21 Christian men who were led across a Libya beach and brutally beheaded by IS after refusing to give up their Christian faith despite torture and inhumane pressure.

Apart from a person from Ghana, they were all Coptic Christians from Egypt and were appointed martyrs of the Coptic Orthodox Church.

Started kindergarten

Stefanus alliance’s partner in Egypt, Mama Maggie, knew personally seven of the killed young men. Three of them came from the village of El-Our where Mama Maggie, often called Middle East’s reply to Mother Teresa, has been working for 25 years.

– After the killing we visited the village. We met the widows and the kids. We decided to open a kindergarten for the survivors and for other children. Today there are 75 children, says Mama Maggie to the magazine Stefanus.

In October last year a mass burial was detected in Libya and DNA tests determined that they were 21 from the IS video. On May 15, the dead came home to their villages.

Faith Heroes

The Egyptian government has honored the killed funded construction of a church called “The Church of the Martyrs of Faith and Homeland” in the village of El-Our.

Mommy Maggie calls the 21 for “believers”.

Two of the killed were, after launching children’s camps, Mama Maggie arranged in El-Our, becoming leaders in the Stefanus children work. The killed, along with many others, had traveled to Libya to raise enough money to feed their families.

– The story of the martyrs is very precious to me. IS would push the 21 to the outermost limit. But the 21 were opposed to torture and pressure. They had courage, they showed a strong and bold faith in Jesus. The last word that came over your lips before they were killed was “Jesus.” We are glad that IS made video footage, “says Mama Maggie.
