Started actively blogging and freelance writing and quickly discovered that publishing was the easy part. Getting and keeping devoted followers was (and is) extremely hard! But not impossible. This blog is a personal blog, also used for business, attempting to turn my interests into income. It is pretty much freestyle taking advantage of whatever features the blog publishing platform has to offer, share scoops and links to various writings or articles contributed around the web (written by me or others), and offer my opinions and perspectives about politics, religion, history, entertainment, etc. Affiliate advertisements support the blog.
Express Yourself reflects my philosophy of life, which is to "Always reach for heaven". It's what I believe and apply to everything that I do. Reach for heaven. If you touch the moon or the stars, that's not so bad. Is it? :)

Some say witchcraft is a religion.
After all, there is A Witches’ Bible!

Many people remember or have heard of the infamous Jezebel, queen and wife of the spineless King Ahab. Most don’t realize that this bad girl of the Bible had a daughter who very much copied the ways of her mother.
Her name was Athaliah and I suspect that she isn’t remembered because she didn’t last as long as her mom. In the history of ancient Israel, the story reads that she was on throne - or rather she usurped the throne of the divided kingdom - for about 6 years and - as planned - at the appointed time, they took her out! Her end was very similar to that of her mother. Tragic!

After reading the article referenced above, if still interested in additional research or review, try these books:
But not all Arabs joined with the European-spawned campaign against the Jews. The few who risked their lives to save Jews provide inspiration beyond their numbers.
Arabs welcomed Jews into their homes, guarded Jews’ valuables so Germans could not confiscate them, shared with Jews their meager rations and warned Jewish leaders of coming SS raids. The sultan of Morocco and the bey of Tunis provided moral support and, at times, practical help to Jewish subjects. In Vichy-controlled Algiers, mosque preachers gave Friday sermons forbidding believers from serving as conservators of confiscated Jewish property. In the words of Yaacov Zrivy, from a small town near Sfax, Tunisia, “The Arabs watched over the Jews.”
I found remarkable stories of rescue, too. In the rolling hills west of Tunis, 60 Jewish internees escaped from an Axis labor camp and banged on the farm door of a man named Si Ali Sakkat, who courageously hid them until liberation by the Allies. In the Tunisian coastal town of Mahdia, a dashing local notable named Khaled Abdelwahhab scooped up several families in the middle of the night and whisked them to his countryside estate to protect one of the women from the predations of a German officer bent on rape.
The Bahai faith has its roots in Babism, a religious movement which in the 19th century was founded by Mizra Ali Mohammad of Shiraz. Bahaism seeks to reconcile certain teachings of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. Learn more.
This is a HUB written by a fellow freelance writer whose work I used to follow when I wrote for HUBPages.com. I am sharing the link. The title should be enough to arouse one’s curiosty to click the link and read more.
However, on the off chance that it isn’t, I’ll reiterate/summarize my comments that I left behind:
RE: The fall of humanity wasn’t blamed on Eve. (It’s in the Bible.)
RE: Monotheism is evolving backwards.
FIRST: Your HUB title is not contentious. As a HUB writer I know that most often if the title doesn’t grab the reader’s attention they probably won’t read the HUB.
SECOND: By “the Bible”, I assume you mean Old and New Testament scriptures. When something is based on something that means the “basis” is the foundation. Islam is not based on the Bible. Islam is based on the Koran. The Jewish faith is based on the Old Testament (one part of the Bible) and Christianity is based on THE BIBLE (Old and New Testaments).
THIRD: Inequality is not scriptural, i.e. non-biblical, not based on the Bible. Male/female. Black/White. Jew/Gentile. Slave/Free. God has no respect of persons. Everybody gets treated equally. The laws of God were never set up to institutionalize and systematize inequality. Just because humans have chosen to arrange institutions and systems and misapply scriptures to accommodate these inequalities doesn’t mean it was God’s idea.
God never withheld Himself, His love or His wisdom; because at one time WE (mankind) ALL KNEW THE ONE TRUE GOD. We turned away from God. If you want to call that “evolving backwards”? OK.
Yet and still He’s the same God TODAY that spoke to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God didn’t screw up the world we live in. We did it to ourselves. God has provided a way for us to redeem ourselves. We can take it or leave it.
There’s scripture for everything I say. I’m not making any of this stuff up. It all comes from God’s word: THE BIBLE.
