Con te partirò (literally meaning “With you I will leave”) LYRICS IN ENGLISH:
When I’m alone I dream on the horizon and words fail; yes, I know there is no light in a room where the sun is absent, if you are not with me.
At the windows show everyone my heart which you set alight; enclose within me the light you encountered on the street.
I’ll go with you, to countries I never saw and shared with you now, yes, I shall experience them.
I’ll go with you on ships across seas which, I know no, no, exist no longer; with you I shall experience them.
When you are far away I dream on the horizon and words fail, and, yes, I know that you are with me; you, my moon, are here with me, my sun, you are here with me.
I’ll go with you to countries I never saw and shared with you, now, yes, I shall experience them.
I’ll go with you on ships across seas which, I know, no, no, exist no longer; with you I shall experience them again. I’ll go with you on ships across the seas which, I know, no, no, exist no longer; with you I shall experience them again. I’ll go with you, I with you.

Remember this old expression: “There are no atheists in foxholes”? If the Obama Administration has its way, there would ONLY be atheists in foxholes.
America’s soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and guard are being told they must not share their faith in the God of the Bible. If they do, they may be disciplined, discharged, or even court-martialed for proselytizing.
No one who believes in God, or has faith in Jesus Christ, can stand idly by in the face of these unprecedented attacks.
That’s why I’m asking you to give now to Family Research Council’s American Hero Defense Fund. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 per day every day this week to stop these attacks on real American heroes.
We must help defend the rights of hundreds of thousands of religious men and women in our military. If their rights are stripped away, how long will it be until all of us will be forced to keep silent about our faith in the public square?
Every dollar you give to help FRC defend your values will be DOUBLED–matched dollar for dollar — by a $70,000 grant from a generous family (who wishes to remain anonymous). But we must raise the full $70,000 to receive the matching grant.
The attacks on the rights of our military heroes is horrific. They are being told they cannot share their faith, talk about the Bible with a fellow soldier, or give a New Testament to another airman. I will be sharing more about this attack this week. Stay tuned!
With your help, FRC will challenge and counter these attacks on the First Amendment rights of our military heroes.
Thank you for standing up for America’s finest!

As his statement shows, it is not good to be apart from the body; the jobs I’ve had unfortunately have kept me from being part of the gathering of believers. I have many regrets having read this. “X”
Faith in Jesus Christ brings into a believer’s life the unsearchable richness that Christ gives us. He is our Master and King and Christians want to become perfect as our Savior even though it is an impossible task as long as we remain in this sinful body. Throughout the Bible God has taught His people the importance of worshiping and gathering together as a body – “And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our meetings, as some habitually do…“ (Hebrews 10:24-25). The primary reason a Christian should join a church is because they have accepted Christ as their Savior and want to be identified with him. He died for the church and wants us to live for it.
Exactly what is a church? It was established by God – Deuteronomy 4:5-14; 26:18; Acts 7:35, 38. The word church is derived probably from the Greek “kuriakon” (I.e., “the Lord’s house”) which was used by ancient authors for the place of worship. It is translated “assembly” in the ordinary classical sense (Acts 19:32, 39, 41). It denotes the whole body of the redeemed, all those whom the Father has given to Christ (Ephesians 5:23, 25, 27, 29; Hebrews 12:23). All the disciples in Antioch, forming several congregations, were one church (Acts 13:1); we also read of the “church of God at Corinth” (1 Corinthians 1:2), “the church at Jerusalem” (Acts 8:1), “the church of Ephesus” (Revelation 2:1), etc. The whole body of professing Christians throughout the world (1 Corinthians 15:9; Galatians 1:13; Matthew 16:18) are the church of Christ. The day of Pentecost is the birthday of the Christian church. Before they had been individual followers of Jesus; now they became his mystical body, animated by his spirit. On the evening of the day of Pentecost, the 3,140 members of which the Church consisted were — (1) Apostles; (2) previous Disciples; (3) Converts.
People often think church as merely the building in which people meet to worship or study. However, the church is not a building, but the people who make up its membership. The real Church consists of all who belong to the Lord Jesus Christ as his disciples, and are one in love, in character, in hope, in Christ as the head of all though as the body of Christ it consists of many parts. Even when they are scattered throughout the community or the world, they are still the church. In the New Testament the church is defined as a local body of baptized believers who are associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the body of Christ – “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.” (Colossians 1:18); “Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” (1 Corinthians 12:27), and “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle (the tent of Jehovah or sanctuary) of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” (Rev 21:3)
God has commanded his people to organize themselves into distinct visible communities, with constitutions, laws, and officers, ordinances, and discipline, for the great purpose of giving visibility to his kingdom, of making known the gospel of that kingdom, and of gathering in all its elect subjects. Each one of these distinct organized communities which is faithful to the great King is an integral part of the church. Peter, on the day of Pentecost, at the beginning of the New Testament dispensation, announces the same great principle. ”The promise [just as to Abraham and his seed the promises were made] is unto you, and to your children” (Acts 2:38, 39). The entirety of the Bible is a primer on how to organize religion, to worship God. He began by teaching us the ritual of sacrifice and gathering in His Synagogues (literally “an assembly“). God established in Deuteronomy 4:5-14 that we should obey all commandments. “Six days shall work be done, but on the seventh day there shall be to you a holy day, a Sabbath [Sabbath meaning "to rest from labor," the day of rest] of rest to the LORD…’ (Exodus 25:2). It is first mentioned as having been instituted in Paradise, when man was in innocence (Genesis 2:2) “The Sabbath was made for man,” as a day of rest and refreshment for the body and of blessing to the soul.
In the New Testament the word translated “church” is used 115 times. Some feel the church has very little meaning for their lives. Still others see the church as conflicting with the way they want to live – the church is not to be despised, 1 Corinthians 11:22. Every Christian should feel as Paul did while in chains in a Roman prison, “I thank God upon every remembrance of you.” (Philippians 1:3). Every Christian should feel that way about church and should have a feeling of joy about joining a church. Local church members join together because of their common belief and mission. Sadly, at one of the most critical junctions of life, the transition into adulthood, people are separating faith and church. One of the most staggering findings is how unimportant the church has become with the younger generation. Membership in a church matters; faith is not disconnected from the church. Faith does not have a do-it-yourself option. People do not make solid spiritual journeys apart from a local body of believers. We do not mosey in a spiritual forest alone. “Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood” (Acts 20:28).
The church and Christ are eternally tied. The two cannot be separated. The two are married to each other. Christ is the groom. The church is His bride. Trying to be a Christian without a connection to the local church is like trying to have a marriage without interacting and communicating with your spouse. The church is a critical piece of a relationship with God. In fact, a relationship with God is seriously compromised apart from the local church. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This mystery is profound, but I am talking about Christ and the church. (Eph. 5:31–32)
Why organized religion? It is necessary to fulfill God’s word. In a nutshell the following verses tells us the importance of it: Eph. 2:19, “Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints (Christians), and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
God warns us of trying to defeat his words He has given us in the Bible and expects us to fulfill his will not ours. Some may be looking on organized religion as some do because of the actions of a few fools that mock God. God is not a respecter of persons and those fools are not a representation of true religion. Satan delights in using such people to turn others against God’s desire for worship. One day God will call each of us home to Heaven. What will people say to Jesus Christ as they look into His eyes and He asks why they did not obey His Father’s Word?
In close coordination with Planned Parenthood, Democrat lawmakers have repealed the Colorado criminal abortion statutes which is the premise of the newly passed House Bill 1154 – prohibiting criminal prosecution of abortionists like Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell – making it legal in Colorado to kill a child, regardless of the circumstances surrounding his/her birth.
FOLLOW GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE GUNS ON FACEBOOK!The bill simply decriminalizes any act perpetrated against the child and trivializes it to nothing more than property damage.
The bill states that “nothing in this act shall be construed to confer personhood, or any rights associated with that status, on a human being at any time prior to live birth. Nothing in this article shall permit the prosecution of a person for any act of providing medical, surgical or any other type of care.”
According to WND.com the Democrats who sponsored and lobbied for the measure are led by Senate President John Morse, majority caucus chair Jeanne Nicholson and House Speaker Mark Ferrandino.
The bill repeals the Colorado criminal abortion statutes and in addition removes freedom of conscience – or, a health care workers right to refuse to be a part of an abortion procedure (so much for choice – so hypocritical). It also protects an abortionist in the case that a minor is brought in to have an abortion, perhaps by her parents or guardian, against her own will. In that circumstance the abortionist cannot be charged.
In a blistering article the Denver Post ripped the new legislation and stated that an abortionist, according to the Planned Parenthood contrived laws, could not be…

Incredible advancements in technology are coming from the imitation of nature, but engineers cannot yet attain animal performance.
Look like a bug: “New Camera Inspired by Insect Eyes,” announced Science Now. If you thought insects with their compound eyes had inferior vision to ours, think that no more:
An insect’s compound eye is an engineering marvel: high resolution, wide field of view, and incredible sensitivity to motion, all in a compact package. Now, a new digital camera provides the best-ever imitation of a bug’s vision, using new optical materials and techniques. This technology could someday give patrolling surveillance drones the same exquisite vision as a dragonfly on the hunt.
In the Illustra film Metamorphosis, Dr. Thomas Emmel notes that butterflies have better color vision than humans. They can see from infrared to ultraviolet. And in the Illustra film Darwin’s Dilemma, we see that compound eyes existed in the Cambrian multicellular animals, including trilobites and anomalocaridids….
