Did the Apostle Peter actually go to Rome?

 By: University Prof.Emeritus Mr. Stergios Sakkos. Part 1. The Vatican’s recent communicatory rapprochements, both towards our Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate – which the pope had visited on the occasion of the Patriarchal Throne’s celebration of Saint Andrew’s Day (30th November 2006) – as well as towards the Church in Greece – whose archbishop had visited the pope (between the 13th to 16th December 2006) – have both brought to the forefront once again the fundamental papist claim which had led to their original secession from the Orthodox Church : the papist dogma regarding the primacy of the pope. This is supported by papists, on the basis of the decision of the 1st Vatican Council (1870), according to which, the pope is acknowledged as the vicar of Christ and His sole representative on earth; … Read entire article »

IT is interesting to note that women were ascribed a relatively superior position in times earlier than that, they being allowed to pursue education to an extent and having a say in important decisions like the choice of a husband. this can perhaps be traced back to the system of ‘swayamvara’, an ancient Indian custom in which a woman was granted the privilege of choosing her groom from amongst many suitors. With the passage of time however, certain changes came to be wrought upon society. Women came to be ascribed a much inferior status,reduced ti the position … Read entire article »

Let Your Riches Pass onto the Next Generation When You Implement Business Succession Planning

Let Your Riches Pass onto the Next Generation When You Implement Business Succession Planning One thing family-run businesses neglect to plan for is business succession planning. What this entails is being able to identify individuals who can assume key roles during transition. Take, for example, Apple’s Steve Jobs. While Apple isn’t a family owned business, they certainly had this in mind when its creative wizard stepped down on account of long-term medical issues. Since Jobs has died, Tim Cook will likely be looked on by the public as being the captain of the company’s future success. Because of this , planning ahead of time will help your company maintain continuity in situations such as a sale, the loss of upper management employees, or the unexpected retirement or death of an … Read entire article »

Understanding the Culture of Muslim Women

Understanding the Culture of Muslim Women The position of Muslim women in their society is different from other cultures. Their society is largely patriarchal, and even the effects of urbanization and industrialization have not completely changed that.

It has been said, although not thoroughly proven, that when Islam had not yet touched Arabian countries, its women had lived in a lot more liberation. This, however, is based on folklore and is not a certainty. But a strong clue is the worship of goddesses in Mecca, which points at the position of females at that time. However, there is argument to that claim. Some writers have said that female infanticide was widely practiced … Read entire article »
