SXSW film festival to be held online Austin

SXSW film festival to be held online

The SXSW Film Festival in Austin Texas had its 27th edition cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. However, they have decided to move to an online platform. They are partnering with Amazon Prime Video to stream as much of its movie line-up as possible for ten days in the U.S. They are giving it for free to everyone with or without a prime membership.

The organizers of the South by SouthWest are working hard to bring the peoples attention to many films that planned their premiere with them. They had also announced awards for its categories last week.

The films can decide whether they wanted to participate in the ten-day "SXSW 2020 Film Festival Collection" on Amazon. The festival, however, declined to mention the number of films they expect to host. For the filmmakers, this opportunity could provide the promotion benefits they need. However, they would have to pay a nominal screening fee. The festival is expected to be hosted by late April and hopes to benefit both the filmmakers and the audience alike.

Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, hopes the online SXSW would be able to showcase the experience of artists and films that audience may not usually see.

Mail-in ballot permitted in Texas elections? - Conditions applied

Texas citizens are battling to conduct elections amid the pandemic. Initially, Fred Biery, U.S. District Judge, granted an injunction which stated that anyone in Texas who wished to vote via email to avoid the spread of coronavirus could qualify for the mail-in ballot. The following day, U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals transiently stopped this rule from taking effect. However, Texans, who generally qualify for mail-in voting, can still cast their vote in a similar way irrespective of the court's decision.

As per Five thirty-eight, 29 states permit any registered voter to request for casting a ballot via email and five countries are carrying out their voting entirely by mail. In Texas, voters who are 65 years or older, have an illness or disability or are behind bars can request for a mail-in ballot. Attorney General Ken Paxton and other Texas Republican leaders clarify that the disability code is applicable for ones who are already suffering from some sickness or physical condition and not for those who are scared of encountering a disease like COVID-19. Despite many arguments for and against these norms, but currently, these regulations are in effect.

Voters must have filled the application for the ballot by email to the early voting clerk where they are registered.

For many people casting a ballot truant, areas must get finished polling forms that aren't stamped by 7 p.m. on political decision day. Voting forms are additionally substantial on the off chance that they have got by 5 p.m the day after the election if they were stamped by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Under Texas' political decision code, an absentee voting form can be conveyed to the region assistant's office via mail or dropped off face to face upon the arrival of the political decision with a legitimate type of ID.

WES MOORE EXPOSED: Lies and Left-Wing Lunacy, Militant Marxism and Race Hustling


IF YOU WANT A GRIFTER FOR GOVERNOR and An Enemy of the State, Go Ahead and Vote for Wes Moore.


Did You Know?


* He lied for years about where he was born in order to curry favor with Baltimoreans, the core of his Leftist constituency.


See Tiny.cc/WesLies.


His actual place of birth was Washington, DC or in his first place of residence, Takoma Park, Maryland, as his website now attests - https://wesmoore.com/about/.


* He's only spent a relatively trivial amount of time in Baltimore, and only because of his studies at Johns Hopkins. A portion of his college career was spent abroad in South Africa - Tiny.cc/WesJudy.


* He's backed by George Soros - the Hungarian but Globalist billionaire who spends his fortune meddling in the political and social affairs of other nations.


Wes's charitable foundation, Robin Hood, funded in large part by Soros, has come under fire. It's difficult to determine what its specific objectives have been, or, how it has actually helped those who would be its clients.


Incidentally, it's reported that Wes draws an annual salary from the organization of $900,000.


See https://www.influencewatch.org/non-profit/robin-hood-foundation/.


* He advocates for open borders and using massive amounts of revenue, both from private donors and taxpayers, to afford newly-arrived migrants with subsidies such as food stamps and Medicaid.


It ensures that those persons will eventually be Democrat voters - because voting for the opposite party when the opportunity comes to cast the ballot would be like biting the hand that feeds them.


* He concerns himself with issues of race when we would do better in being a colorblind society. Dr. Martin Luther King said that we should be judged by the content of our character, not the color of our skin.


* He's a definite Marxist. There are cues in the language he uses - such as the term "Anti-Racist". (It's Ibram X. Kendi's favorite - https://www.google.com/search?q=Ibrahim+X+kendi&client=ms-android-sprint-us-revc&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8&inm=vs#tts=0.)


His aim is to Indict The System, overhaul it entirely, and punish those members, especially the police, who do the most to make it function.


He would have Qualified Immunity removed, so that cops would be prosecuted or sued for the ordinary acts of force necessarily used to properly defend against violent assailants who resist arrest.


He seeks to defund the police, and reroute that funding to social workers. He would send them in place of the officers, to be potentially stabbed and / or shot.


See Tiny.cc/WesSalon and Tiny.cc/IndictTheSystem.


* He used the other Wes Moore, and threw him away, like a dirty Kleenex.


After weeks of pressing him for information on his life for the book, the free Wes stopped visiting, does not speak to the other, nor does he send any form of support.


The book, which contains numerous discrepancies according to persons named within it, is here to obtain in PDF form without cost - https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://cl2hart.weebly.com/uploads/5/9/4/4/59447175/the_other_wes_moore__1_.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwiW7_nK7JH7AhUCTjABHZXsDdcQFnoECDsQAQ&usg=AOvVaw1jawbV-kR0e6Q06DljPYHF.


* He is denounced by both families directly involved in the tragedy that launched this controversy.


The other Wes Moore's relatives, and that of Officer Profero, would prefer that he stop exploiting the images of their loved ones, and invading (by proxy through press conferences) the precious little privacy they've had since the scandal first broke.


In fact, the other Wes's community, led by his uncle, has asked that Wes Moore step down.


See https://foxbaltimore.com/news/local/the-other-wes-moores-family-speaks-candidate-moore-should-cancel-his-campaign.


* He is endorsed by the embattled Biden Administration and Hillary Clinton (who now wants to blame Paul Pelosi's attack, committed by a Nudist, on "MAGA Extremists").


Both said entities are overly controversial in their own right, and represent their own perceived or actual forms of extremism.


Clinton is the author of the Russia Collusion Hoax - Tiny.cc/CrazyHillary - and Biden is noted as the most authoritarian President we've ever had - issuing several hardline Executive Orders that were challenged in court as being unlawful - in particular his "Jabs for Jobs" imposition.


It would likely be Wes's plan to reinstate lockdowns, shutdowns and / or mask mandates, and possibly to mandate vaccine passports. It's been his requirement that we be vaccinated to attend his rallies.


See https://twitter.com/iamwesmoore/status/1478033826333048836.


It appears that Wes's desire is to violate the larger portion of our Constitutional rights.


We don't need that kind of "leadership". It's Dictatorship.

PREFACE

“‘Be thankful’ (Colossians 3:15) is a recurring exhortation in the letters of the apostle Paul. No other New Testament writer gives such a sustained emphasis on thanksgiving―and yet, major modern studies of Paul fail to wrestle with it. Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara aims to rehabilitate this theme in this comprehensive and accessible study, a New Studies in Biblical Theology volume. He shows how, for Paul, thanksgiving is grounded in the covenantal traditions of salvation history. To offer thanks to God is to live a life of worship and to anticipate the future acts of God, all in submission to the lordship of Christ. Ingratitude to God is idolatry. Thanksgiving functions as a link between theology, including eschatology, and ethics. Here Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara provides clear insights into the passion of an apostle who never fails to insist on the significance of both the gospel message and the response this message demands. Addressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology are creative attempts to help Christians better understanding their Bibles. The NSBT series is edited by D. A. Carson, aiming to simultaneously instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.”


“What Christians believe about God is visible in how they exhibit thankfulness for all he has done on their behalf. Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara offers a practical resource to encourage believers to express glad-hearted thankfulness for God’s unending provision. This book provides insight into daily practices that exemplify thankfulness, such as speaking a word of thanks to a neighbor, serving others in a practical way, or thanking God for his many gifts.

By living each day with gratitude in mind, Christians are doing more than saying a word of thanks or lending a helping hand – they are recognizing the absolute and total lordship of God, his sovereignty over all things, and his kindness in using his almighty power to work all things for good.”

“The apostle Paul instructed the Philippians to be anxious in nothing and thankful in everything. And when he said everything – he meant everything. We can all agree that this is easier said than done. Disappointments and discontent may cause you to slip into dissatisfaction, and grumbling becomes a state of mind – gratitude seems impossible to find. However, what if this is the precise reason you lack the joy of a God-filled life? Instead of a reaction to when things are going well, what if gratitude is actually necessary to knowing the hope of our gracious God?

This is exactly what Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara identifies in The Thanksgiving a price paid for life and living. Dr. Kamara examines the biblical foundations of thankfulness and traces how it can reshape every-day Christian living. When we express gratitude in all things, we not only praise our Creator, we also get to know Him better. With This Book, you’ll learn how to practice thanksgiving in both simple and extraordinary ways, even when you’re tempted to dwell on the negative. You’ll find your outlook on life realigned to see the hand of God in everything, strengthening your trust in Him. And in doing so, you’ll find greater, more joy-filled reasons to continue expressing thanks to our good and generous God.” I recommend this Book to be read and as you do God bless you.

INTRODUCTION

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to choose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself, but with other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy.

Derived from a popular Revive Our Hearts story, choosing the need for Gratitude the Journey to Joy challenges and equips the reader to live a life of intention, a life based on thankfulness for the freedom Christ has provided and for the blessings of others.

By intentionally thanking God and others, bitterness and entitlement are replaced with joy and the humble realization of just how undeserving we really are.

To not choose gratitude is more costly than we usually realize. When we do choose a lifestyle of heartfelt, humble gratitude, we are mindful of the benefits received from our gracious Savior and those He has placed around us, and our joy becomes full.”

“How to grow as thankful Person of God.

We are often encouraged to ‘count our blessings’. But truly biblical gratitude is much more than this.

Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara unpacks Scripture to help us grow in gracious gratitude—thanking God for who he is, as well as natural gratitude— thanking him for his blessings. She also helps women to identify and deal with some of the things that hinder them so that they can rediscover the joy of a thankful heart.

This thoroughly Bible-centered unpacking of the reasons for gratitude builds on Dr. Paul Allieu Kamara 14 years’ experience in mentoring, Pastoring and Teaching at The Word of Faith Bible Institute and Rudolph Kwanue University College and Grace International Bible University.

Discussion questions at the end of each chapter make this book ideal for group use as well as for individuals.”

The reason for this Book

1. I gave a lecture on the life of Thanksgiving at a graduation Ceremony in 2021, which was held at Lofa County, in the Republic of Liberia.

2. I gave another lecture at Winners Chapel International New London Bo, on Friday 16th May 2019 and its topic was ‘ The Power of thanksgiving and always give thanks for all things ‘ (Eph. 5:20)

3. Also, a third lecture - on our Word of Faith Bible Institute Program, on 15th October 2020 mainly on the Life of Thanksgiving, and a part on the Life of Submission and Hope.

GOD gave me time during my trip to Liberia last year so I combined the three lectures, with many additions in one book on the ‘thanksgiving is a price to paid for life and living’ which is now on your hands published as book with contemplations on the prayer of Thanksgiving which was given by the word of God in the Bible. Which will be printed for church leaders and followers? I hope - God’s willing – will reach you in good health in Jesus Mighty Name!

WHY MUST WE GIVE GOD THANKS

1. Every Thing that has breath should praise The Lord- Ps. 150:6

2. It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord-Ps. 92:1

I discovered that the most expensive thing to managed in Man is life

Why

1. We have life= we call it breath Ps. 150:6, in scriptures we called it breath and with God is free for 24 hours 30 days and 365 days per year

2. We have life = in science we called it Oxygen= for Medical Science is costly

· Oxygen per day cost = 1,200,000

· Oxygen per Month = 36,000,000

· Oxygen per year = 432,000,000

· Now if you are five years = 2,160,000,000

· Now if you are Ten years = 4,320,000,000

· Now if you are Twenty years =8,640,000,000

· Now if you are Thirty Nine years =1,044,000,000

· Now if you are Thirty years =12,960,000,000

· Now if you are forty years =17,280,000,000

· Now if you are fifty years = 21,600,000,000

· Now if you are sixty years =25,920,000,000

· Now if you are seventy years=30,240,000,000

· We all owe God according to our ages

Do you see why we must give God Thanks?
