<h2>Have you ever asked yourself "What's really going on?" after watching a news story?</h2> <br /><br />Maybe you have wondered, "What is the government REALLY doing?" <br />Perhaps you've caught a slip of something an "official" shouldn't have said and wanted to know the other side of the story. <br /><br />Conspiracy Theory 101 explores some of these situations. When the government is silent, theories fill the space in a genuine effort to see the big picture. <br /><br />Sometimes those theories become fact when whistleblowers talk or years later when the documents are declassified.<br /><br />Conspiracy Theory 101 explores common conspiracy theories starting out with the JFK assassination and September 11th. (and more...see Table of Content below) Then it shows you theories that became fact like MK Ultra, the Tuskegee Experiment, and Human Testing. <br /><br />If you want more, Conspiracy Theory 101 will take you ever deeper by covering Population Control, Agenda 21, and the Georgia Guidestones. <br /><br />After that, Conspiracy Theory 101 will take you for a ride on the crazy train. Don't worry, you can get off before the wreck. <br /><br />Included in this book is your jump start to researching on your own. Put your investigative skills to work and join the vibrant community of truth-seekers. The Chapter of Research and Reference material is worth the 99 cents by itself. <br /><br /><b>MORE ABOUT WHAT"S INSIDE:</b> <br /><br /><ul><li>9 Chapters</li><br /><li>2 Appendices</li><br /><li>Countless Links</li><br /><li>Access to Official Documents</li></ul><br /><br /><b>WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR:</b> <br /><br />Conspiracy Theory 101 is for the new or seasoned researcher.

We need God. We need to know truth. He is someone we trust. The Bible is God's Book.That has been proven down through the centuries to be true.. In it is a map for life.Read the Bible, starting in the New Testament (John).Follow your heart and take action, b finding a good church.We are using lessons from the life of Ruth to see how God works in our lives..Spiritual messages are in the Book of Ruth. Finding Jesus as a Redeemer is the first step in finding the face of God. Knowing truth gives us freedom.<br />This book reveals the heart of a Goel--a kinsman redeemer. True liberty is living as we should; not as we please. We live in the dispensation of Grace, which, is a contrast with the Old Testament Law of Moses. In Christ, we are given independence from religious regulations and legal restrictions of law. We have freedom from the yoke of the Mosaic Law, and from the yoke of observances of that law.We are free to follow God any place He leads.<br />Freedom includes release from dominion or power of our old sinful nature with its appetites and passions.Satan no longer has power over us. Jesus Christ, our Goel, purchased freedom for us to live the power of the Holy Spirit, and, to be pleasing to our Master, to Whom we now belong by right of His paying the purchase price on the Cross.for us.<br />This kind of redemption among the Israelites included both that of people and of land. In Israel land had to stay in the family. The family could mortgage the land to ward off poverty; and the law of Leviticus 25:25 required a kinsman to purchase it back into the family. The kinsman, who rescues Ruth is Boaz. The kinsman redeemer for us is Jesus.<br />The best part is that we can tell Satan to go away in Jesus name, and he has to obey. There is power in that name.<br />Being Redeemed (exagorazo) has the idea of “buying back” or “purchasing out of.” The idea is not just that of a rescue (as in the Biblical idea of salvation), but of paying a price in order to bring about the “great escape” or rescue from bondage to the power of sin and death.<br />Verna Hargrove has added basic notes to help beginning Bible students understand Biblical truths behind this story of redemption. -Naomi returns to Bethlehem. Ruth says, "Entreat me not to leave you, or to turn back from following you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me, and more also, if anything but death parts you and me." (Ruth 1:16–17 NKJV)<br /><br />The two women return to Bethlehem during the barley harvest, and in order to support her mother-in-law and herself, Ruth goes to the fields to glean. The field she goes to belongs to a man named Boaz, who is kind to her because he has heard of her loyalty to her mother-in-law. Ruth tells her mother-in-law of Boaz's kindness, and she gleans in his field through the remainder of the harvest season.<br />Through Jewish ritual, Ruth proposes marriage to Boaz. She needs a kinsman redeemer., thus allowing Boaz to marry Ruth. They transfer the property and redeem it by taking off a shoe and handing it over. That is like signing a decision card in today's world.<br />

<h1>☆ The Renaissance ☆</h1><br />During the Middle Ages, the nations of Europe forged new identities that moved them away from the lost glory of the Roman Empire into their own ethnicity. The experience of maturation was often clumsy and out of step, an evolutionary process that saw the nation's developing at their own pace as they struggled to replace the protection of Rome with their own home-grown strength. What the nations, once they were ready to be described in that manner, did have was the Roman Catholic Church, which defined itself as the spiritual protector of Christian believers. But the dutiful Christians of the Middle Ages who sought orthodoxy and for the most part obeyed the papal rules underwent a change when the Middle Ages ended. The Renaissance, or rebirth, was a period of time when Europeans began to question what they had been told was sacrosanct. Through art, inventions, science, literature, and theology, the separate nations of the European continent sought answers that the Roman Catholic Church was unwilling, or perhaps unable, to offer. <br /><br /><h2>Inside you will read about...</h2><br />✓ The Rebirth of Europe<br />✓ The Italian Renaissance<br />✓ The French Renaissance<br />✓ The Spanish Renaissance<br />✓ The German Renaissance<br />✓ The Low Countries Renaissance<br />✓ The English Renaissance<br />✓ Here Be Dragons: Exploring the Unknown<br /><br />The Church that had become a powerful political entity was viewed with distrust and skepticism by many Christians; the spread of learning that accompanied the invention of Gutenberg’s printing press meant that bold new ideas were traveling across the boundaries of Europe faster than the Church could silence them. Lascivious, power-brokering popes could not bring a halt to the challenges they encountered when a German priest rebelled against corrupt practices that masqueraded as ecclesiastical authority. As the walls came tumbling down, humanism burst forth, inspiring the art of Michelangelo, the science of Vesalius, the literature of Shakespeare and Cervantes. But with the loss of religious uniformity came terrible conflicts: France suffered the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre; Spain welcomed the Inquisition to purge heresy; the Low Countries were split between Catholic and Protestant. The Renaissance was a triumph of the human spirit and a confirmation of human ability, even as it affirmed the willingness of men and women to die for the right to think freely.

<h2>Explore the Rise of Adolf Hitler</h2><br /><b>Free History <u>BONUS</u> Inside!</b><br /><br />Was Hitler, as Ian Kershaw asked, a natural consequence of German history, or an aberration? Not that Hitler had been in hiding, waiting to attack. The Führer had actually been following an aggressive and savage foreign policy for almost ten years, and been named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1938.<br /><br />This is not a book about World War II, but about the man, Adolf Hitler, one of the faces and names that still arouse the strongest feelings—repulsion, resentment, and even fanaticism—but one who also had a childhood and a youth, a father and a mother. It is the road to madness—beginning that day in August of 1934 when he took over absolute power and ordered allegiance and loyalty to him alone—that this book is about. <br /><br /><h2>Some of the topics covered in this book include:</h2><br /><ul><li>Hitler's Origins</li><li>His Inception</li><li>The anti-Semitic capital of Europe</li><li>Munich</li><li>First World War</li><li>Hitler's Ascension</li><li>Mein Kampf</li><li>His Downfall</li><li>The remains of Adolf Hitler</li><li>And a Great Deal More that You don't Want to Miss out on!</li></ul><h2>Scroll to the top and download the book for instant access!</h2>
