On behalf of the BU household congratulations to young Maria and all Barbadians on traditional and social media for ‘bigging up” the young lady.

God Speed!



Almost every social media platform was buzzing today with UNICEF’s Orlando Bloom interview of 11 year old Barbadian environmental activist Maria Marshall. The A-list English actor spoke to the Harrison College student ahead of Friday’s World Children’s Day about her YouTube video “Little Thoughts on Big Matters”. Our Cheyne Jones paid her a visit at home today after her online classes – CBC TV 8.

    I watched the video a day or so ago. It is representative of the boldness of our youth especially in the young lady’s age group.
    Quite frankly ,I have long written off our generation and am confident that the change we need and seek will come from that new generation throughout the entire region.
    Our youth are creative and less hypocritical than my generation. They have access to more information and just need to be allowed to be the best they can be.
    Peace

  • Please stop saying “And a little child shall lead them”… ” out of context

    First, you have to understand that the phrase is actually a quote from the Old Testament. It comes from Isaiah 11:6, which reads:
    The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, and the calf and the lion and the fattened calf together; and a little child shall lead them.

    As you can see right away, the text has nothing to do with a child leading adults. It states that a child shall lead the wolf, lamb, leopard, young goat, calf, lion, and fattened calf. This may seem strange if we do not continue to read a few more verses to get a better understanding of what is being discussed here.

    Verses 7-9 continue: The cow and the bear shall graze; their young shall lie down together; and the lion shall eat straw like the ox. The nursing child shall play over the hole of the cobra, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the adder’s den. They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

    This passage is a discussion of the Day of the Lord. This is the day that Christians look forward to when Jesus Christ will remove the curse of sin from our world and restore peace to all of creation. As a result of this peace, wolf, lion, lamb, cobra, calf, bear, and children will all live in harmony. A child will be able to lead a lion (or a wolf, etc.) around without fear of harm.

    Let us stop using this phrase as if the Bible tells us that children will one day lead adults. It says nothing of the sort. If we are going to quote Bible verses, let us quote them in context. Isaiah 11:6-9 is a wonderful passage that describes what God has in store for this fallen world that has so much violence, fear and death. It will be a world of peace.

    The point of the passage is that when the “shoot from the stump of Jesse” (v. 1) emerges and reigns as king, the world will be brought to peace. Jesus is that king, not some little child. To read it any other way is to miss the point of Isaiah 11. If you want to say “and Jesus shall lead them”, then you will be reading this passage correctly.

    Watch now watch.
    Watch the sport in the rum shop now, because BU um shop goers hate proper Bible exposition

  • It is basic grammar we are discussing in this passage which is about a child leading dangerous animals around and not being harmed – because the world is at peace (nature is in harmony). The child is not leading adults in the passage. I do not care what your theological persuasion is. If you understand basic grammatical constructions, you know that is what the text says. And you do not need any more context than Isaiah 11:6 to determine that the word “them” in this verse refers to the wolf, leopard, and lion.

    The passage speaks of the future peace on earth when nature is restored to harmony. This has not taken place. It is the hope that Christians hold to, but it is future. We still live in a world where wolves, lions, and leopards are dangerous and we would not allow our children to play with them. The picture painted in Isaiah is a world where there is no longer a danger of harm. Jesus makes this picture possible, but it has not yet happened.

    nuh likkle children wont be leading nuh body in bubados or anything else in this world soon

    This passage from 2 Peter 1 is good enough for me, whether you like it or believe it or not.
    16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

    17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

    18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount.

    19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:

    20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

    21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

    and so is this one

    2 Timothy 3:16-17
    New King James Version
    16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [a]instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    and this
    1 John 5:11-13
    King James Version
    11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

    13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

    note the sequence in verse 13 BELIEVE=> KNOW =>BELIEVE

    You are nothing more that a Bible bullshi**ter and hypocrite. No different to the Pharisees and Sadducees of the period in which the Joshua (Yeshua) play is written.

    If you were a genuine servant of your Lord Jesus you would have looked to Matthew (Chap. 18) to understand and define the girl Mary Marshall, a light for the future darkness of environmental challenges:

    “At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

    And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
    And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

    And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

    But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

    Why can’t you tell us if you think the Marshall lass possesses a rather impressive intellect for her age?

    Don’t be too critical of her in the manner your overthrown idol Herr Majesty Trump did to the young idealist Greta.

    Young people always blame the ‘living’ older generation for the prevailing problems of their ‘modern’ world.

    It’s as old as the rebellious youth of Socrates generation.

    Didn’t the ‘young’ generation of the Rock ‘N’ Roll 50’s blame their parents hatched in the ‘Roaring 20’s’ and the ‘Swinging 40’s’ for the problems of their world?

    If you were to just ‘listen’ to the vibrations emitted by our own BU “555dubstreet” aka KIKI you might just open your mind’s eyes (chakras) to the psychic knowledge and understanding contained in Eastern spirituality like yoga and Buddhism to appreciate the ‘Yin-yang’ cycle of life.

    For there nothing new under the Sun! Just read the words of the Preacher (Ecclesiastes).

    “The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”
