The Word 'Whatever' in the Bible
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Oh, whatever... In our culture, that little generalized word "whatever" has come to indicate indifference or apathy, an attitude of "who cares." It's our response to anything we don't like but can't avoid, or to anyone whose opinions become tiresome. It's the verbal shrug of the shoulders. But try looking up this word in Scripture. I've been studying the Bible practically every day for forty years, and I've often found refreshment in chasing word studies and exploring obscure topics. Jesus said we're not to live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God -- and that includes the word "whatever." Recently I spend a wonderful morning looking up all the occurrences of this term in my New International Version. In Scripture, "whatever" is a term indicating the totality of our commitment to God. It occurs 173 times, and many of the references speak of wholehearted obedience and blessing. As I studied these references, I divided them into seven headings. First, ...

Gisele Bundchen Does Yoga With Daughter Vivian, 11 Months, For Second Time: Picture
US Magazine - about 3 years
Mama's little twin! Gisele Bundchen and her 11-month-old daughter Vivian struck a pose as they did yoga together over the weekend. The Brazilian supermodel shared the adorable moment in an Instagram picture on Saturday, Nov. 30. PHOTOS: Gisele's life as a mom "Thank you auntie Fafi for capturing this special moment," the 33-year-old wrote. In the photo, Vivian mimicked her famous mom by lifting her arms above her head.

Can Who Solve Death?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I laughed out loud in the airport last week when I spotted the cover of Time Magazine with its melodramatic question: "Can Google Solve Death?" Going to my gate, I read the online article about Google's initiatives in starting a company called Calico to study the genetic causes of aging, and I wish them well. Thank God for those who facilitate medical advancement, synthesize research, reduce disease and extend longevity. But I boarded my plane with two thoughts in mind. First, Google can never solve death. Second, Jesus Christ has already done it. And if you want to know how, just enter the words "Gospel of John" into the Google search box. Regardless of your thoughts about the nature of Scripture, no honest reader of the Fourth Gospel can doubt the intensity of the author's convictions about eternal life. The key text to the book, John 3:16, says: "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." In J ...

Is The Delusion That Comes With Remission Holding You Back?
Psych Central - over 3 years
Some call it ‘state specific memory,’ but after ten years and thousands of interviews I prefer to call it ‘bi-cycling delusion.’ It is the delusion that comes with the bipolar cycles and a primary reason people remain in disorder even with the best intentions. Bipolar is a cyclical condition. We cycle through depressions and manias, sometimes reaching intensities that cause a crisis for us. We also periodically cycle into remission. It might be easier if the cycles were predictable, but for many of us they are completely random. For far too many of us, each cycle has a state-specific delusion that keeps us from moving toward Bipolar IN Order. We all know about delusions that come with intense states of depression and mania, but it is the delusion that comes with remission that holds many back the most. It fools them into thinking they have bipolar under control when in reality they are just in one of the cycles. I met John 5 years ago. His parents were concerned that he was delus ...

Gisele Bundchen is raising a yogi! On Wednesday, June 19, the Brazilian supermodel shared a new Instagram picture of her 6-month-old daughter Vivian sharing her yoga mat in a swanky hotel room. "Practicing yoga with my little partner before going to work. Enjoy your day," Bundchen wrote in the caption, which was also translated in her native tongue, Portuguese.

Re: Of Tony and Susan Alamo, and my later adventures with the folks from the Word Over the World cult

THE WONDERFUL FUTURE! by Tony Alamo Regarding the end of time which is the present time we are living in and suffering in. Jesus said, “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake [which is the Word of God1]. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place [We are the temple of God.2 If we allow Satan to re-enter us, we are lost because we let him stand in us, the temple of God—the holy place.3 You then have become a memb ...

Unblocking prayer in marriage
World Community - Christian View - almost 5 years
Our prayers can be blocked. And in particular, they can be blocked in marriage if there is a spiritual problem not dealt with in the marriage. And in particular, they can be blocked when the husband is living boorishly with his wife and not in the God-ordained way: “Husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered” (1 Peter 3:7). This verse tells me two things, and one of them is wonderful. The wonderful part is that prayer is not normally hindered! Prayer, if a Christian who has done business with God and confessed and desisted from sinful practices offers it, will normally sail up to heaven like a sweet offering and be surely answered, in the way that God deems most appropriate to the situation. Normal prayer life is an unobstructed access to God that comes with confidence and therefore is fun to do: “And this is the confidenc ...

    More Details Hide Details John commented on his own website, "There are a number of reasons, mainly the decline of Myspace as a platform to reach you, the fans.... So today, the steps were taken to close the account at the Myspace page." He often names his songs after famous murderers, e.g. Edward Gein ("Gein with Envy", Songs for Sanity) Albert Fish ("Werewolf of Westeria", The Devil Knows My Name), or torture devices (see any song from Requiem).

    More Details Hide Details
  • 2006
    Age 34
    Lowery worked on Rob Zombie's 2006 album Educated Horses, co-writing eight out of eleven tracks with Zombie.
    More Details Hide Details When he left Loser, Lowery took up the role of Rob Zombie guitarist as a permanent gig. “Rob is the best I have worked with. He's great. We have a great time on stage together. It has been the single greatest experience I have had working with someone, hands down." John is also the guitarist on Rob's latest albums, Hellbilly Deluxe 2, released February 2, 2010 and Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, released April 23, 2013. In early 2011, Lowery was joined by fellow ex-Marilyn Manson bandmate, Ginger Fish, as a member of Rob Zombie's band. Zombie/Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison was in Europe with his band Murderdolls, leaving Zombie without a drummer for some shows during the American leg of their tour. Lowery asked Fish to fill in as drummer. In April 2011, Fish was announced as the new and permanent drummer.
  • 2005
    Age 33
    While Lowery was working on radio rock band Loser, he also began to work with cult rock artist and movie director Rob Zombie. Meeting at the Camp Freddy benefit gig, Lowery and Zombie hit it off immediately and Rob asked Lowery to play with him at Ozzfest 2005. "I'm totally ecstatic about having the opportunity to play with Rob on Ozzfest!
    More Details Hide Details He has been one of my favorite artists for the longest time. I had the opportunity to play with him a few weeks back, and never thought that I would have the chance to share the stage with him playing the Zombie songs we all know and love!" It was reported that Zombie was looking to quit the music industry to concentrate on his movie career until he began to work with Lowery. “Camp Freddy asked me to do this benefit, just to play one song, at the Arrowhead Pond (in Anaheim, California) for this tsunami relief thing. And John was there, and we played one song, 'Thunderkiss,' and it kicked ass and he's a supercool guy and I was like, 'this is perfect.' John said, 'Do you need a guitar player for Ozzfest?' I said, 'Yes.' He said, 'I wanna do it,' I said, 'Perfect, done.'" -Rob Zombie on John 5
    In 2005, Lowery formed the band Loser.
    More Details Hide Details Recruiting vocalist Joe Grah, Charles Lee on bass and Glendon Crain on drums, they began working on their debut album Just Like You. The band was also partly co-founded by friend and producer Bob Marlette. Vocalist Joe Grah already had a significant amount of success in his home state of Texas, with the band Jibe. Marlette recommended Grah to Lowery and so Lowery hopped on a plane to Texas to see the band play. Grah flew back to L.A. and was hired on the spot. The name Loser came about as an affirmation to Lowery's past: “I was from Grosse Pointe, Michigan, which is kind of an upper-class area, and I was always that rock kid," John explained. "I started playing guitar at age 7. I always had a rock shirt on, and I had that tattoo early on. I looked like a loser because everyone around me was wearing Polo and Brooks Brothers. But now if you go into a club wearing Polo, you're called a loser. So I think everyone can relate to that name, and the album title, Just Like You, sums it up."
  • 2004
    Age 32
    In 2004, Lowery and Manson parted company.
    More Details Hide Details Confusion was rife as certain press reported that he had been dumped unceremoniously from the band, but in reality the two came to a mutual agreement that they wanted to go their separate ways.“What actually happened was, at the end of the tour, we were just on different roads. It was completely amicable. He just wanted to write with other members of the band, and I wanted to do other things." While working with Manson, Lowery stated he does not take drugs or drink alcohol.
  • 2003
    Age 31
    During the opening bars of the "The Beautiful People" at the 2003 Rock Am Ring festival Manson was moving across the stage when he hit Lowery's guitar and chest with his boot.
    More Details Hide Details Lowery was outraged and threw his guitar while screaming at Manson, which led to much speculation. According to Lowery, the Grotesk Burlesk tour had been a high-pressure endeavour, and just weeks before he had suffered losses of very close family members. Lowery later commented on his behavior, calling it unprofessional and stating that there was no bad blood between Manson and him. During this time period, Lowery also worked on a band called Plague with Jason Lowetz as the frontman. The album was produced with Bob Marlette but never made it out of the studio. Lowetz was considered for the job as frontman for Velvet Revolver before Scott Weiland took it on.
    In 2003, while still lead guitarist for Marilyn Manson, Lowery (then called John 5) was invited by David Lee Roth to write and record the single non-cover song for Roth's 2003 album Diamond Dave.
    More Details Hide Details John 5 recently announced a new album with David Lee Roth, which he says will hopefully come out in the near future. More After the recording of Mechanical Animals, Marilyn Manson was again looking for a guitarist to replace Zim Zum who had been dismissed from the band during the recording process. Again John went to try out for the band. Following a tour with Rob Halford in Europe, John received a call from Manson's manager asking if he would like to meet Manson for lunch. At the meeting Manson asked John to join the band. Lowery accepted and Manson gave him the name "John 5" "right then and there. It was obviously something he'd been thinking about." 5 signed on for the Mechanical Animals tour and to work on the next album. His first live performance for Marilyn Manson came on the MTV Video Music Awards.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1998
    Age 26
    Arguably, Lowery's first truly "big break" came when he was selected by former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth to play lead guitar on the critically well-received 1998 release DLR Band.
    More Details Hide Details As had occurred, historically, when Roth chose a new lead guitarist - in light of Roth's lead guitar lineage: from Eddie Van Halen to Steve Vai to Jason Becker to Steve Hunter and others - Lowery quickly gained public recognition for his virtuosic abilities, as well for the "heart" in his playing. Regarding how he came to meet Roth, in Guitarist Magazine, Lowery relates that, "when I was little, my dream was to play with David Lee Roth. One day I was sitting at my friend's house and... I wondered what... I'm gonna call up his manager and see if he needs any songs." Lowery submitted six tracks that he had written to Roth's management. Having been a longtime fan of David Lee Roth's work, both in Van Halen and as a solo artist, Lowery believed that he knew exactly what Roth would like. On hearing Lowery's songs, Roth was very impressed, and subsequently asked for Lowery to submit several more songs. At the time, Roth was choosing between Lowery and Mike Hartman as to who would play lead guitar. (Lowery would also play bass on the album under the moniker, "B'urbon Bob".) Tragically, Hartman would die a short time later.
  • 1996
    Age 24
    In 1996, Lowery went for his first audition with Marilyn Manson but narrowly missed out, as he was late to the auditions, and the guitarist role was taken by Zim Zum.
    More Details Hide Details Lowery teamed up with ex-Judas Priest frontman Rob Halford, along with Sid Riggs (drums) James Wooley (keyboards), and Ray Riendeau (bass) to work on an industrial metal inspired album, under the band name of 2wo (Two). The subsequent album (Voyeurs) was remixed by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and was released on Reznor's Nothing Records label, under the parent company Interscope Records (Universal). The album was not a commercial hit but did produce one video, made by gay porn director Chi Chi Larue for the first single "I am a Pig". It featured some s&m scenes and so was not widely broadcast but was not banned as has been previously rumored. The band embarked on a world tour, and were part of the Ozzfest line-up but the tour was pulled and 2wo disbanded.
