A poem written by bball1989 to highlight the difference between Jesus and false religion. In the scriptures Jesus received the most opposition from the most religious people of his day. At it's core Jesus' gospel and the good news of the Cross is in pure opposition to self-righteousness/self-justification. Religion is man centered, Jesus is God-centered. This poem highlights my journey to discover this truth. Religion either ends in pride or despair. Pride because you make a list and can do it and act better than everyone, or despair because you can't do your own list of rules and feel "not good enough" for God. With Jesus though you have humble confident joy because He represents you, you don't represent yourself and His sacrifice is perfect putting us in perfect standing with God!
For 55 years, Gershon Jacobson, a journalist for some of the most famous newspapers, including the New York Herald Tribune, the National Jewish Post and Opinion, the Yiddish Day Jewish Journal and Israel's major daily Yediot Acharonot, was a faithful witness of the destruction, rebirth and renaissance of Jews and Judaism.
Mr. Gershon Jacobson, editor of the Algemeiner Journal, passed away on Sunday afternoon, May 29, 2005 at the age of 70.
In Dr. Elie Weisel's words at the funeral: "Gershon was a warrior for truth. A warrior with a loving heart, In the 50 years that I knew Gershon
I never heard a bad word about another person. That is very rare for a journalist."
