Enquanto as iniquidades humanas em suas mais variadas formas vai tomando conta do planeta, desde os vieses políticos, sociológicos, educacionais, filosóficos, religiosos, dos poderes constituídos, etc., muitos estão percebendo que algo deve estar causando uma corrosão tamanha no próprio ser humano que necessitamos nos voltar para algum "ALGO", muito maior que nós e que nos restitua os valores adequados como humanidade que somos...
Neste tempo com estes clamores, talvez para muitos o paladar já esteja tão afetado que já não adiantará mostrar-lhes o LAUTO banquete que o ETERNO DEUS nos trouxe e traz em CRISTO e SUA PALAVRA, que já está lincada a um estado em um freezer na inércia religiosa e mantida bem domesticada pelos devidos clérigos nas mais criativas e diversas denominações religiosas no planeta...
Mas talvez alguns ainda sejam no toque do ESPÍRITO DE DEUS, que JESUS afirmou estar em AÇÃO neste período da História enquanto ELE não vem para JULGAR e conduzir os SEUS para o LAR (Ler João 14, 15, 16, 17 = Pelo menos)...
Talvez para alguns nesta condição possam perceber que o ETERNO DEUS é o PRIMEIRO que nos poderá dar estas condições e estruturas essenciais para que o ser se conduza em meio aos escombros produzidos pelas gerações e que alcança níveis de extremo alarme na diluição das últimas barreiras da identidade humana, quase alcançando o bizarro nos âmbitos dos raciocínios...
Então talvez para estes possa haver oportunidade para uma volta completa, plena e absoluta para a VIRTUDE DO CRIADOR com que somente ELE e NELE e para ELE a humanidade tem seu status e patamar de significado, de dignidade, de validade, de propósito e sentido adequados e para os quais fomos criados por ELE, por MEIO DELE e para ELE...
Deus abençoe a todos...
Talvez seja tarde para muitos... Mas... Talvez não seja tarde para alguns...

Putin urges Russians to return to values of religion
By Neil Buckley in Valdai, Russia
Vladimir Putin called on Russians to strengthen a new national identity based on conservative and traditional values such as the Orthodox church on Thursday, warning that the west was facing a moral crisis.
“Sovereignty, independence, the integrity of Russia – those are red lines that no one is allowed to cross,” the Russian president warned.

Mr Putin said Russia should avoid the example of European countries that were “going away from their roots”, by legalising gay marriage and excessive “political correctness”.
“A policy is being conducted of putting on the same level multi-child families and single-sex partnerships, belief in God and belief in Satan. The excesses of political correctness are leading to the point where people are talking seriously about registering parties whose goal is legalising the propaganda of paedophilia,” Mr Putin claimed.
“People in many European countries are ashamed, and are afraid of talking about their religious convictions. [Religious] holidays are being taken away or called something else, shamefully hiding the essence of the holiday,” the Russian president added.
“We need to respect the rights of minorities to be different, but the rights of the majority should not be in question,” he said.
Mr Putin’s comments, in a three-hour appearance at the annual Valdai Club meeting of specially invited academics and journalists, followed calls in the west for a boycott of next February’s Winter Olympics in Sochi because of a Russian law banning promotion of homosexuality.
The Russian president defended the law, insisting it was designed to prevent gay “propaganda”. “I would like to reiterate that representatives of sexual minorities are not repressed in their rights,” he insisted.
The speech reflected Mr Putin’s shift to a more conservative stance since he returned as president last year, a move apparently designed to appeal to grassroots supporters outside Russia’s cities.
The president gave a characteristically assured and sometimes caustic performance. In place of the customary dinner with participants he gave a speech and then joined a conference session alongside invited foreign guests, including former French prime minister François Fillon and former European Commission president Romano Prodi.
He joked of being friends with both Mr Prodi and the former Italian premier’s political foe, Silvio Berlusconi. “Berlusconi is on trial for the fact that he lives with women, but if he was a homosexual, no one would touch him,” Mr Putin quipped.
Another foreign politician who felt the sharp end of Mr Putin’s wit was US senator John McCain, who on Thursday morning published an opinion piece on the Pravda.ru website saying Mr Putin was a “tyrant” at home and friend of tyrants abroad”.
The article was an answer to Mr Putin’s column in the New York Times last week, in which he criticised US unilateral intervention around the world. Mr Putin said the senator had been mistaken in his choice of outlet. Pravda, the most famous newspaper of the Soviet era, was closed down after the Soviet collapse, with the website bearing the name established only in 1999.
“[Mr McCain] wants to be published in the newspaper that is most authoritative and has mass circulation,” said Mr Putin. “Pravda is a respected publication today of the opposition Communist party, but the level of its distribution in the country is minimal.
“The senator has his views on things, but I think nonetheless he lacks information about our country. I would welcome it if he came to the Valdai Club and joined our discussions.”
But Mr Putin avoided triumphalism towards Washington, despite Russia’s diplomatic coup in agreeing with the US last weekend a plan for Syria to hand over its chemical weapons to international control.
The Russian leader said he had not enabled Barack Obama to “save face” by finding a way for him to avoid a Congress vote on military strikes he might have lost. The US president, Mr Putin said, had saved face himself by backing away from military action.
Mr Putin said he was “hopeful” that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad would comply in full with the weapons plan, though there was no guarantee. He said Syria’s agreement to join the chemical weapons convention was a hopeful step.
The Russian leader insisted that it was “not correct” to talk about whether Russia would support the use of force if Syria breached its commitments under the plan.
“We don’t have grounds to doubt for now that they will not fulfil their commitments,” he said. “If they don’t, we will examine the issue, but to talk about this now is premature.”
