BREAKING NEWS – “Barnevernet has clearly and unashamedly made known its intentions that it seeks to permanently remove all 5 of the Bodnariu children, including baby Levy Ezekiel, place each of them in separate foster homes, and only grant the parents, Marius & Ruth, limited visitation rights; a few hours per visit, four times a year.”

Official Statement – Bodnariu case – May 21st, 2016

We are grateful for all of you who continue to pray and fast for Marius, Ruth, and their children. We are hopeful that the Bodnariu family will be reunited as we approach the crucial hearing that will take place at the County Committee for Social Affairs (May 30th – June 2nd). We believe the Lord will continue His work and will perform a miracle!

A team of psychologists, assigned by the County Committee for Social Affairs for an independent evaluation of the Bodnariu case, recently initiated a reunion, of a few short hours, for Marius & Ruth with all of their 5 children in their family home. All seven in the Bodnariu family welcomed their family reunion, the first since they were separated 6 months ago, and the entire event was filled with joy and sorrow simultaneously; each knowing that these short few hours were only temporary.

Marius & Ruth are holding strong for their family and we too continue alongside them! While baby Ezekiel is doing better now that he is at home, the remaining older 4 children fervently expressed their desperate desire to be returned home to their parents. The toll on the children of having been separated from their natural family is undeniable, very apparent in each of the Bodnariu children, and the children’s frustration is unavoidable. In turn, the Barnevernet impudently tries to spin the family’s time together, and children’s pleas for reunion, in such a way that all these tell-tale signs reflect negatively against the parents, Marius & Ruth.

Considering the short time remaining until the County Committee hearing, it is obvious that Barnevernet representatives are fighting desperately to gather – or rather, fabricate – any reasoning to defame the parents, Marius & Ruth; actions inherently working against the express interest of each of the children to return home to their natural family. In all this, Barnevernet undeniably demonstrates a blatant disregard pertaining to the superior interest expressed by the Bodnariu children and glaringly evidences Barnevernet’s unbridled diabolical intent of continuing in breaking up the Bodnariu family. Barnevernet has made the Bodnariu case a struggle for its own survival and seeks to destroy the Bodnariu family in this process as a sign to the world that Barnevernet alone dictates what is in the “superior interest of the child.” Barnevernet has clearly and unashamedly made known its intentions that it seeks to permanently remove all 5 of the Bodnariu children, including baby Levy Ezekiel, place each of them in separate foster homes, and only grant the parents, Marius & Ruth, limited visitation rights; a few hours per visit, four times a year.

As this seemingly unreal struggle intensifies, we earnestly request and encourage all of you to continue to supporting the Bodnariu family in prayer and fasting. We trust in our Lord Jesus Christ and believe that the County Committee deciding body will understand that there is no justification to not immediately and unconditionally reunite the Bodnariu family; a decision bringing this case to a happy ending and thus evidencing competence, objectivity, and clear mindedness on behalf of those in the County Committee.

This is the outcome we look forward to sharing with you in our next official statement; we don’t want to even think of the consequences and ramifications resulting from a different outcome…Again, we thank you for your continued support and pray that God reward you with His blessings in this life and eternal life thereafter!

Spring is here and the butterflies are beginning to flutter signs of creation all over the Northern Hemisphere. The Wings of the Wind and its editor had an interesting week. On the blogging front:

Forced Adoption in the U.K. included this video:

The reason I put up the forced Adoption story was because my new friend Eugene Thinks He is Out of Options – Starting Hunger Strike Soon is Rob Barkman discussing the topic. Rob has a very interesting blog entitled, “Settled in Truth Ministries.”

INDIA PROTESTS NORWAY’S CPS includes the following video by Dr. John Dayal:

Divine Sovereignty by Steven J Lawson is another theologically correct article which can be found on Sherryn’s blog, “The Narrowing Path.” It is an easy to read article about a deep subject.

American-College-of-Pediatricians-e1459098066229American College of Pediatricians Slams Transgender Agenda in Children is an article from Dr. Chris Prunean’s Blog “Delight In Truth.” You will certainly not find this interesting article about the transgender subject anywhere in the mainstream media. “Why not?” is the question I have.

Review: Ashamed of the Gospel, by John MacArthur
I’ve been to Jim’s blog several times in the past. From this article, we appear like minded in the most important ways. I may have to try to get my hands on a copy of this now as Dan C. is reading it and, as it appears it may have some information on the “Downgrade controversy” in Spurgeon’s day of which I am not aware, I am curious.

Listen Here buttonSermon Link: The Godhead Revealed by Dr Martyn Llloyd-Jones is a wonderful sermon that I found at Sherryn’s blog. Here is a man who knew how to rightly divide the Word of God.

Steven Bennett – SECRETS and LIES – Inside Barnevernet, Norway’s CPS is an article about the sad reality of Norway’s Child Protective Services.

Smooth Sailing ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah annOn Tranquil Seas ~ is Deborah Ann’s poem I chose to publish this week. This was a much needed drink at an oasis along my journey this week. God’s Word is, of course, my primary source of strength, but Deborah Ann’s Words are based on scripture.
This was the favorite verse of a college friend who went on to become a pastor.

On the substitute front, I was fortunate to spend 4 of my 5 days at Fountain Lake. I enjoyed it all, from 2nd grade on up. I got to go on the annual trip to Blakely Dam that the 4th graders have been taking for years. The 5th day I was a spanish teacher at Park Elementary. I welcomed the students with my limited knowledge of Spanish: “Buenos Dias.”

The joke of the week comes from Clayton:

“What do you call a speaker without speak?”

Gospel Herald – Norway’s Seizure of Five Children due to Parents’ ‘Bible-Based Parenting Style’ Questioned by Over 100 Lawyers and Politicians Worldwide

May 19, 2016

It is very unfortunate that this event had to happen for the world to be alerted to this decades long problem. Christians haven’t been the only ones who have had their children taken for no reason. If it wasn’t for Romanian Christians, this story wouldn’t have gotten the publicity and things would be business as usual. Thanks for sharing this news article, rodi. Let’s hope articles like this one change “business as usual.”

Norway is on a legal dilemma about on the custody of the children of Christian couple

Norway is at odds with over 100 legal luminaries and politicians from the US and around the world for taking custody of four of the five children of Bodnariu couple to protect them from their parents’ “Bible-based parenting style.”

This was an interesting week on the computer in many ways. On the blogging front, lots of interesting material became available this week.

As most of us think our Mom’s are “The Best Mom in the World,” Mother’s Day began with this post. It is one of two pieces I wrote this week.

The Universe Has Been Carefully Dialed to an Astonishingly Precise Value is one of two posts taken from Sherryn’s outstanding discernment blog called: The Narrowing Path.

Melbourne completes coverage of Australian Demonstrations does just that. We head off to another continent next week.

NO DUE PROCESS IN AMERICA? discusses a time in America where some Americans had just that. It was my second shot at writing this week.

Home School Legal Defense Association Publicizes the Bodnariu Case was found at Valeria’s blog this week. The HSLDA, an American organization, put together the best short documentary about the Bodnariu family that I’ve seen.

4 Empty Beds in Norway: 4 of Thousands is a repeat of the HSLDA video because I like it so much.

Bono Meets Eugene Peterson is an well-researched Herescope article on the two giants. Peterson thinks it is OK to add to God’s Word.

Lead me Lord by Gospel Trumpet Singers is a prayer in the form of a beautiful song.

My Friend Ken and CPS Recorded/Vibeke Speaks is an actual recording of Ken Olsen and the mother of his child, Vibeke Morrissey, and their encounter with a CPS worker.

Can a man change a man—short answer-NO, only Jesus can change a man. is another educational word study by Manny Rodriquez, my blogging buddy.

NORWAY…A COUNTRY WHERE EVEN ART IS UPSIDE DOWN!!! is a verbal work of art about a hanging work of art. Ken Olsen is very creative.

Russian Officials Speculate That a Nuclear War Could Leave Romania a “Smoking Ruins” comments on Putin’s Push because of a weak American Foreign Policy.

Why do we want to look like the world? is a question all Christians should ask themselves. Dan C. writes on the subject.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION is a timely piece about revisionism. Thank you for posting this, Manny. We all need to read all of it.

The Dangerously Influential Gospel of Tim Keller is important information in this era of wolves among the flock. Sherryn has posted information about a false teacher that many know of. Interestingly, Keller wrote the forward to the recent biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

This Light of Mine ~ is a Christian poem by Deborah Ann Belka. No week would be complete without reading something from Deborah Ann.

Some good times were had with the kids this week. Got to help the Special Ed kids at Fountain Lake on Field Day. We got wet, we jumped in the bounce houses, we enjoyed the sunshine.

I took care of this week’s best joke of the day.

So…What do you call a friendly school?

4 Empty Beds in Norway: 4 of Thousands

May 11, 2016

This is the best video I’ve seen about the Bodnariu Family’s situation. It is a much watch so that America can continue to learn about what this particular story. Thousands of children have been taken from good Norwegian parents. It is a great travesty.

Thank you HSLDA!
