Alone In The Mountains
The sun goes down...people race back to various populated places...me...I stay behind. I tend to live life at a slower pace...it's a blessing and a curse. I seem to always stay too long wherever I am...this evening in particular.
As the sound of the last vehicle faded, silence quickly took over. A slight wave of panic struck me as I suddenly realize I was alone. Creatures began to howl and move about, a breeze rustled the trees. I looked around expecting to see something, but nothing was there.
Being alone in a vast wilderness is different than being alone at home. Out here you are forced to realize survival is what it's all about.
We seem to have the survival part down for now, but what about death? Death is just around the corner for all of us. Have you truly thought about death? What will happen? Can you honestly say that you know what will happen when you die? Many people have beliefs, but are those beliefs based on truth, have they truly been tested?
The Bible gives clear answers about death and survival...
"For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." --Romans 6:23
Would you like to receive God's gift of eternal life? First you must realize that you are a sinner, and sin separates you from God. The wages of sin is death. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who has paid for your sins. You no longer have to be bound by sin, or separated from God. You can receive eternal life, the gift of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Let us search God's Word for a clear understanding of this good news:
Sin originated with Satan, who said, "I will": "For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High."--Isaiah 14.13-14 Here you see Satan turning to his own way. This was a rebellious sinful act against God.
The Bible says sin entered the world through one man, Adam. "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:"--Romans 5.12
Adam's sin is universal to all mankind. We are all descendents of Adam. Adam broke God's Edenic Covenant, and the result is we are all born in and under sin. The Bible says, "Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me."--Psalms 51:5; "What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin;"--Romans 3:9; "But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe."--Galatians 3:22
The Bible says we have all gone astray; there is none righteous; all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all."--Isaiah 53:6; "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:"--Romans 3:10; "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"--Romans 3:23
You are a sinner, sin will be judged and punished. "For the wages of sin is death;"--Romans 6:23
The Bible says, "And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:"--Hebrews 9:27
God is righteous and holy. "The LORD is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works."--Psalms 145.17
The Lord is coming to judge the world and people. "...for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth."--Psalms 96.13
The Bible tells about the judgment, "In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel."--Romans 2.16
The Bible also tells what will happen to each sinner who dies without accepting God's gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. "And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire."--Revelation 20:11-15
Death, hell, judgment, and the lake of fire awaits you, if you die a lost sinner. But, the second part of Romans 6:23 offer

World AIDS Day: Refugees in Brazil use drama to catch the conscience
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil, December 1 (UNHCR) – Refugees from a deprived area of the coastal Brazilian metropolis of Rio de Janeiro are using drama and comedy to open a debate on difficult social subjects such as HIV/AIDS and sexual and gender-based violence.
On a recent evening, UNHCR joined an audience of about 100 refugees of different nationalities at a presentation of "O Auto da Mare Alta" in the grounds of Caritas of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro. UNHCR and local non-governmental organization Acao Comunitaria provided funding for the show.
The play was created, directed and staged by a group of young amateur actors and actresses living in the Mare Complex, one of the city's biggest slum areas. But, although it deals with weighty issues, the drama uses humour to engage people who have suffered enough tragedy and sadness.
It tells the story of a young bon vivant who dates the daughter of an over-protective shopkeeper while secretly visiting the red-light district and going to samba shows. The situation heats up when the angry father finds out what is going on. It boils over when a doctor who collects blood samples from people in the red-light district reveals that some of the dancers, as well as the pleasure-seeker, are HIV positive.
Local religious and community leaders get involved in the ensuing heated debate, which, however, has a positive ending. The physician refers all those living with HIV to a public health clinic for treatment and explains the preventive measures that should be taken to avoid HIV/AIDS. And then the father gives his blessing to the relationship between his daughter and her wayward boyfriend, who promises never to attend another samba show.
The presentation certainly struck a chord with the audience, who took on board the key messages while enjoying the humour. But to drive home the point, a UN leaflet, "Women's rights: Violence and HIV/AIDS Prevention," was distributed. It included contact numbers that people could call to ask about testing for HIV or to report cases of violence against women.
"The actors presented very important issues that we need to be aware of," said Diana, a teenager from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. She left her home in the Great Lakes region to escape conflict and flew two year ago to Brazil, where she lives alone. The 18-year-old and her friends enjoyed the mix of gravity and comedy, smiling knowingly when the play touched on taboo issues such as sex.
Rodrigo, a Colombian refugee sitting next to her, said the play reinforced the message of safe sex. "I adored the dancers," added the 20-year-old, who sought refuge in Brazil a year ago to escape persecution against his family by an irregular armed group in a central region of the country.
The initiative is part of UNHCR's health assistance framework for urban settings, which is aimed at establishing effective communication mechanisms to improve access to priority primary health care services and to improve the health of refugees and other people of concern.
"When you get adolescents involved in this kind of initiative, they spread all the messages, all the information, presented by the play," Acao Comunitaria's Vicente Pereira stressed. "It was an important cultural event for the refugees and an opportunity to learn about HIV/AIDS prevention in a fun way," added Heloisa Nunes, director of the project.
Brazil hosts around 4,500 refugees from more than 75 nationalities. All are entitled to free treatment under public health policies, including those covering HIV/AIDS prevention and care.
"We engage with a wide range of actors to promote shared responsibility, and to guarantee quality health services [including HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment] at a level similar to that of nationals," Andres Ramirez, UNHCR's representative in Brazil, explained.

As another entry in the video-game-to-movie genre, Alone in the Dark certainly delivers in terms of its splattering gore and number of things that get shot or blown up with the kind of arsenal familiar to any fan of games that allow the player to shoot or blow things up. You could argue that some game-based movies have been big successes--gauged either by audience appeal or box office scores. Even though a lot of hardcore gamers probably won't care, Alone in the Dark is not of that ilk. At least the Resident Evil and Tomb Raider series had some interesting characters and locations (not to mention sexy stars). But Alone in the Dark is crippled from the first by a mundane setting of caves, laboratories, and street-fighting backgrounds as well as a cast (including Christian Slater, Stephen Dorff, and Tara Reid) that couldn't be less interested in the overly complex plot. The absurdity starts right away with a long expository pre-title text crawl that carries all the gravitas of a "Monty Python" sketch intro. The gist of the plot has a group of scientists, special-ops military guys, and paranormal freaks and geeks investigating evil creatures that were once harnessed by an extinct subset race of Native Americans. Unleashed again, the creatures must be destroyed, which is where the video game blasting and attendant gore comes into play. Considering the cult following the game series carries (the first installment is over a decade old), Alone in the Dark could find a nice little life on DVD, but theater-goers might discover the title's a little too literal. --Ted Fry
