He's Alive!!

A poll of three thousand people was conducted in Britain recently, to determine which dead person Britons would most like to meet. Some of the people in the top ten were Martin Luther King, Freddie Mercury, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and William Shakespeare. All great people and of course all very dead, well, except for maybe, Elvis!

Number one on the list of dead persons Britons would most like to meet is, surprise, surprise, Jesus! This is not surprise, surprise, Britons would most like to meet Jesus! This is surprise, surprise, Britons think Jesus is dead!!

Come on people, Jesus is very much alive!! I don't want to get all preachy and such, but in the first chapter of the Book of Acts, it is recorded that Jesus revealed himself to his disciples after his crucifixion and resurrection on numerous occasions. Right up until his ascension to heaven in verse 9-11, Jesus was very much alive and is very alive today. Read for yourself;&version=31;

In John 14:2-3 (NKJV), Jesus says, "2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also."

Sounds alive to me!

Britons and indeed the world, you can't believe half the account and not the other!

By now we have all heard that Scottish singing sensation, Susan Boyle, has finished second on Britain's Got Talent. There is no shame in her taking second place. She is already a winner, in the fact that she took a great risk and placed herself on the line, to the point where except for that beautiful voice, she could have been humiliated. The fact that she survived the interview process alone, is a mere miracle of human determination!

Susan would have faced may detractors along the way. We live in such a pretentious, superficial world, that fake has become the new norm. Let's face it, if Sarah Vaughan or Ella Fitzgerald were alive today, they wouldn't stand a chance, yet they are regarded as divas. Today, female vocalists have to look like fashion models or porn stars to achieve success. We can trust that the music industry will tart up, up and coming female singers, i.e., Alicia Keys, to ensure their success and of course, the almighty $$$ bottom line.

So, cut Susan some slack. She may have suffered a slight break down or responded harshly to the media in recent weeks, under intense media hype and scrutiny, but she embodies the underdog in us all!

Susan Boyle, has won for all of us!!
