„Casa tuturor religiilor”- proiectul demarat în inima Berlinului. Construcția va fi biserică, sinagogă și moschee simultan

Evreii, creștinii și musulmanii vor construi sub același acoperiș o casă de cult comunăPhoto credit Cunoaste lumea

Casa comuna pentru evrei, crestini si musulmani in Berlin

Trei religii. O casă. Berlinul va deveni în curând cu adevărat unic. Evreii, creștinii și musulmanii vor construi sub același acoperiș o casă de cult comună – va fi atât sinagogă, cât și biserică sau moschee. Cele trei secțiuni distincte vor fi legate printr-o cameră comună amplasată în centrul clădirii. Acest lucru va servi pe post de loc de întâlnire, unde credincioșii cât și vizitatorii pot sta împreună și discuta despre religiile lor”, se specifică pe site-ul viitoarei construcții.

Proiectul denumit „House of One” a demarat în anul 2014 și deși ar putea părea un SF, ei bine nu este deloc așa. Viitoarea construcție are deja design-ul făcut, iar locul a fost stabilit. Conform BBC, „House of One” se va înălța pe amplasamentul fostei biserici Sf. Petru, distrusă după cel de-al Doilea Război Mondial.

LUCRURI BUNE …DE NIMIC ! Viorel Udriste

LUCRURI BUNE …DE NIMIC !

„Omul bun scoate lucruri bune din vistieria bună a inimii lui, iar omul rău scoate lucruri rele din vistieria rea a inimii lui; căci din prisosul inimii vorbeşte gura.” Luca 6:45

Viorel UdristeInima, centrul fiintei noastre, care determina conduita si faptele noastre, trebuie sa fie schimbata sau convertita. Ca doar …din prisosul inimii vorbeste gura ! La fel cum oamenii stiu ca orice pom se cunoaste dupa roada lui, ei ar trebui sa stie, daca un om este sau nu este neprihanit, dupa vorbele pe care le rosteste.. . Daca pomul nu este bun, rodul nu va fi bun; daca inima este plina de rautate, gura va fi si ea, plina de rautate.

„Gura celui neprihanit este un izvor de viata, dar gura celor rai ascunde silnicie” si „Cine are o inima inteleapta primeste invataturile, dar cine are o gura nesocotita se prapadeste singur.” Prov.10:11 & 8

In lumea spirituala avem de ales, intre lucruri BUNE si lucruri BUNE …DE NIMIC ! Cateva cuvinte, despre cele care nu sunt de dorit pentru noi :

CREDINTA FARA FAPTE – noi nu facem fapte bune pentru a fi iertati, ci pentru ca suntem iertati ! Dumnezeu a creat faptele bune in care ne-a randuit sa umblam. „Dupa cum trupul fara duh e mort, tot asa si credinta fara fapte este moarta” Iacov 2:26
De cate ori mai trebuie sa ascultam ori sa citim, ca sa ne miste pentru a implini ? „Fiti implinitori ai Cuvantului, nu numai ascultatori, inselandu-va singuri.”

POCAINTA CU RECIDIVA – „Atunci ei au crezut in cuvintele Lui si au cantat laudele Lui, dar au uitat curand lucrarile Lui si n-au asteptat implinirea planurilor Lui.” Ps. 106:12-13; Cu o pocainta „dus – intors”, nu se ajunge nicaieri, si prin asta se admite ca, schimbarea inimii in Hristos. inca nu s-a produs.

LIMBAJ BIBLIC FARA ASCULTARE – ne-am impregnat limbajul cu versete din toata Scriptura si citate alese spuse de altii, dar uitam sa ascultam noi insine de Dumnezeu, de pastori, de parinti, de sot\sotii, s.a.m.d.
„Nu orisicine imi zice Doamne, Doamne va intra in Imparatia cerurilor, ci cel ce face voia Tatalui Meu.” Matei 7:21

VASE FARA UNTDELEMN – avem vase aratoase, imbracate, parfumate, dar goale ! „Fiti plini de Duh” este o porunca nu o optiune, pentru ca suntem „templul Duhului Sfant” !
„Cele nechibzuite, cand si-au luat candelele, n-au luat cu ele untdelemn.” Matei 25:3 Deci …fara untdelemn se va ramane afara, pe langa usa, este de inteles pentru toti !

UMBLARE CU ISUS FARA CRUCE – a umbla cu Isus, inseamna si acest lucru. Daca se evita purtarea crucii, vrednicia, de vesnicia lui Dumnezeu nu va fi posibila. „Daca voieste cineva sa vina dupa Mine, sa se lepede de sine, sa-si ia crucea si sa Ma urmeze” Luca 9:23
Cladeste-ti caracterul pe Cuvantul lui Dumnezeu, si atunci ii vei putea ajuta si pe altii, care se afla in nevoi spirituale !

Adevarul – Copiii din România sunt cei mai fericiţi din lume: pe ce locuri se situează copiii din Norvegia şi cât de protejaţi se simt în familie

Oamenii de ştiinţă din fiecare ţară au analizat răspunsurile micuţilor cu vârsta de opt ani, care au fost intervievaţi cu privire la felul în care se simt acasă, în sânul familiei, bunăstarea personală şi părerea cu privire la respectarea drepturilor copiilor, hărţuire, starea generală de fericire.

Copiii din România sunt cei mai fericiţi din lume, având, în plus, o părere foarte bună despre aspectul lor fizic, potrivit unui sondaj realizat de organizaţia internaţională Children’s Worlds, în cadrul căruia s-a analizat gradul de bunăstare al micuţilor din 16 ţări.

Conform publicaţiei britanice „Daily Mail”, 9,08 din zece copii români s-au declarat mulţumiţi de viaţa lor în sânul familiei, spre deosebire de copiii din Norvegia, Germania şi Marea Britanie, ţări care s-au situat pe locuri inferioare.

Mai mult decât atât, chestionarul a dovedit că micuţii din România stau foarte bine şi cu încrederea în propria persoană, ocupând primul loc în topul nivelului de satisfacţie pe care îl simt în legătură cu felul în care arată, cu 3,75 din patru copii mulţumiţi de calităţile lor fizice. Imaginea de sine sănătoasă a copiilor români poate fi pusă în legătură cu faptul că aproximativ 33% dintre cei intervievaţi nu au acces la internet, mediu în care sunt promovate, în mod agresiv, modele nerealiste pentru copii.

DREPTATE ÎN DRAGOSTE

IMG_3058Timp de aproape o săptămână, am avut harul și deosebita bucurie să-l găzduim pe fratele Iosif și sora Elisabeta. Se află în Arizona la Biserica Agape (pastor Petrică Lascău) cu ocazia prezentării (timp de 5 zile) unei lucrări noi, pe care o vom prezenta în zilele care urmează atât pe blogul acesta, cât și pe LogosTV.

Petrecând mult timp împreună și purtând tot felul de discuții pe diferite teme cu această familie scumpă, mi-am mai astâmpărat dorul de părinții mei, care au plecat la Domnul cu mulți ani în urmă.

Ultimele cuvinte ale tatălui meu înainte de a pleca din lumea aceasta au fost: „FIȚI TREJI ȘI VEGHEAȚI”. Era îndrăgostit de Cer, unde a și plecat în câteva ore și dorea să se asigure că și urmașii lui îi vor urma pașii. Vorbind cu fratele Iosif și cu sora Elisabeta, m-am convins încă odată – dacă mai era cazul –…

Pr. Dr. Mihai-Andrei Aldea: CAZUL BODNARIU – UN ABUZ DE TIP FASCIST

CAZUL BODNARIU – UN ABUZ DE TIP FASCIST
„Tot ce este românesc trebuie murdărit, călcat în picioare, distrus. Ori atribuit străinilor”
Interviu cu Pr. Dr. Mihai-Andrei Aldea (Interviu din Revista ATITUDINI, Nr. 42)

Părinte, sfinția voastră cum vedeți cazul familiei Bodnariu, familia de penticostali din Norvegia, ai căror copii au fost luați de autorități?

Cred că este o întâmplare din care unii se vor folosi iar alții se vor rătăci, așa cum se întâmplă mereu. Atârnă de fiecare cum știm să învățăm din lecțiile vieții.

Dar care ar fi învățătura sau lecția acestui caz?

Pentru mine prima lecție a acestui caz este dominația slugilor snoabe în societatea românească. A ieșit puternic la iveală. O mulțime de oameni fără discernământ și demnitate a sărit la luptă în apărarea „bietului” stat norvegian care dă piept cu doi oameni cărora li s-au luat copiii. Și au sărit la luptă cu o mulțime de așa-zise argumente atât sofistice cât mai ales rușinoase, ca să nu zic degradante. Mi-a adus aminte, această gloată snoabă, de tristețea Părintelui Justin față de starea de robie în care au fost aduși românii. Și care a ieșit la iveală cu acest prilej. Dându-ne durere, dar și prilej de îndreptare, dacă există deschidere.

[…..]

Al doilea așa zis argument, al superiorității norvegiene, este și mai tragic, pentru că ține de un profund rasism. A categorisi țările, popoarele sau rasele în superioare și inferioare este rasism. A mai și pretinde că o țară nu are voie să o critice pe alta, deoarece această alta îi este superioară ne duce direct în epoca stalinistă sau hitleristă. Din care, se vede, mințile unora nu au ieșit.

Pe data de 4 februarie, o fetita de 13 ani, aflata in grija Protectiei copilului din Sogn og Fjordane, a fost gasita moarta in pat, in casa parintilor surogat.

Copila suferea de epilepsie, iar parintii biologici acuza faptul ca ea nu ar fi primit ajutorul medical necesar, desi ei ei au solicitat in mod repetat acest lucru.

Barnevernetul din komunna, parintii surogat si medicul local sunt cercetati de politie.

Ce este si mai ingrijorator este ca acest caz s-a intamplat in judetul familiei Bodnariu.

 

Folosind google translate am mai aflat:

Protectia copilului a blamat atacurile de anxietate ale fetei pe faptul ca parintii biologi inca luptau sa-si primeasca inapoi fata.

SHAME on NORWAY!!!! SHAME on Children’s Minister Solveig Horne! A second romanian family’s children are being abused while in foster care in NORWAY !!

Solveig Horne via twitter

Solveig Horne via twitter

For the second time this week we have learned that another family’s children are being abused while in foster care and Barnevernet is shrugging it off.

Just a few says ago, Pastor Cristian Ionescu, the Bodnariu family spokesperson informed us of the shocking abuses the two Bodnariu boys were subjected to while in custody of Barnevernet, in the care of foster parents. Read the official press release here. For ENGLISH, please scroll down at this link. – https://popaspentrusuflet.wordpress.com/2016/02/13/atentie-comunicat-oficial-bilingv-cazul-bodnariu-12-februarie-2016-grave-motive-de-ingrijorare/

Now, we have learned that the 2 children of another Romanian family, the Nan family, whose children were also confiscated by Barnevernet wrongfully, have showed up at the meeting with their parents, the girl bearing burn marks on her back and the little boy had scratches on his face. When the Barnevernet representative was asked why, they said the little boy got into a fight at kindergarten.

NORWAY, WAKE UP and hold your FOVERNMENT accountable. These are not just children of romanian immigrants, these are NORWAY’S CHILDREN! Please do not turn a blind eye to this violence against Romanian families, nor turn a blind eye to all the horrible abuses in your broken Barnevernet system that has become a disgrace to the whole world. THE WHOLE WORLD is WATCHING and we will not stop PROTESTING and telling the TRUTH until everone of those kids who were taken abusively come home !!!

Similaritati ingrijoratoare la vizita copiilor, intre cazul familiilor Bodnariu si Nan

Familia Nan

Sa purtam in rugaciune familiile Nan si Bodnariu si toti copiii romanilor din Norvegia care sunt departe de caldura si dragostea mamelor si tatilor lor. Bunul Dumnezeu sa rezolve cazurile acestea si sa ne ajute sa luptam impreuna cu aceste familii pana cand isi vor primi copiii inapoi.

Similaritati ingrijoratoare, la primele vizite cu copii, intre cazul familiilor Bodnariu si Nan –

O prietena a familiei Nan spune caci copiii familiei Nan au avut arsuri si zgarieturi la intalnirea cu parintii

Dupa cum stiti, in weekend-ul trecut, am citit vestea socanta si foarte ingrijoratoare a pastorului Cristian Ionescu despre baietii lui Marius si Ruth Bodnariu dupa prima intalnire a lui Marius cu baietii:

Marius Bodnariu la joaca cu copiii Photo

Marius Bodnariu la joaca cu copiii Photo

Matei avea pe spate o julitură urâtă și vânătăi, iar Ioan avea vânătăi pe față. La întrebările părinților prin care se cereau detalii, reprezentanții Barnevernet nu a dat prea multe explicații, trecând repede peste aceste aspecte. Explicațiile lor erau că din vina lui Matei, a căzut pe spate, iar Ioan s-a împiedicat pe scări și a căzut cu fața de trepte. Noi ne întrebăm, dacă ar fi avut aceste semne copiii în momentul în care au fost luați în custodie, ar mai fi fost Marius astăzi în libertate? Ar fi acceptat Barnevernet și din partea părinților astfel de explicații cu privire la vânătăile și juliturile copiilor? De asemenea, suntem îndreptățiți să ne întrebăm, sunt copiii mai în siguranță acum decât acasă, și câtă grijă au de ei acolo unde sunt? Iar dacă așa ceva s-ar putea întâmpla oricum, de ce Barnevernet nu mai este așa de preocupat de integritatea fizica a copiilor? De ce nu s-a sesizat Barnevernet din oficiu? Sau, pe ei nu-i trage nimeni la răspundere și de asta fac ce vor?

Apoi, parintii surogat incearca sa rastoarne religia copiilor:

Matei spune că doamna la care stă a râs de cântecelul lui creștin „Barca mea e mică” – cântecelul lui preferat – și i-a spus că este o prostie. Matei a întrebat-o pe mami dacă e o prostie cântecelul „Barca mea e mica”? Mai târziu, Matei i-a spus lui Marius că mami e mai mare!? Întrebat ce vrea să spună, el completează spunând că mami are părul lung și ea face copii, de asta e mai mare decât tati – îndoctrinare feminista?! (Comunicatul pastorului Cristian Ionescu – ATENȚIE! CAZUL BODNARIU – GRAVE MOTIVE DE ÎNGRIJORARE – COMUNICAT OFICIAL BILINGV – 12 FEBRUARIE, 2016)

Acum, aflam ca si sotii Nan au vazut arsuri si zgarieturi pe copiii lor la intalnirea recenta:

La fel au fost găsite urme de arsuri pe spate la Bianca, iar Dragoș era cu zgârieturi pe fata, vezi doamne s-a bătut la grădiniță cu un alt copil.

Dar dacă erau gasiti asa la familia biologica iar fi pus sa facă închisoare, nu? Abuzează de copii în care stăteau foarte bine în familia lor.

Răspunsuri la fel de vagi la întrebările părinților. Nu au dat prea multe explicații. Oare de ce?

La fel, religia copiilor a fost atacata, fetita explicandu-i mamei ca nu exista Dumnezeu. (VEZI AICI – Update Familia Nan – Parintii surogat ii invata pe copii ca nu exista Dumnezeu (Sursa – Prietena fam. Nan)

Brisbane Protest Bodnariu Barnevernet – Claudia Giurgiuman – Norvegia: Te-ai uitat tu in ochii inlacrimati ai lui Ruth? Esti tu in stare sa simti durerea inimii ei zdrobite?

Naomi, Ioan, Ruth cu bebelasul Ezekiel, Matei si Eliana Bodnariu. Doamne, da copiii inapoi familiei !!!

Transcript AGNUS DEI:

Claudia Giurgiuman: Norvegie, legislatia ta este foarte gaunoasa, iar institutiile tale de administratie sunt vrednice de dispret. Astazi, vocile natiunilor se ridica intr-un singur glas cerandu-va sa dati inapoi copiii pe care i-ati furat de la familiile lor iubitoare.

Te-ai uitat tu in ochii inlacrimati ai lui Ruth? Esti tu in stare sa simtii durerea inimii ei zdrobite? Unde iti este inima Norvegie? 

Claudia Giurgiuman dezvaluie istoria socanta a Australiei care seamana cu cea a Norvegiei de azi in acest fragment din discursul de la Brisbane:

Marius si Ruth Bodnariu

Marius si Ruth Bodnariu

Doamnelor si domnilor, cu numai 46 de ani in urma guvernul Australiei inca smulgea cu forta copiii aborigeni din bratele mamelor lor care-i iubea, pentru a-i civiliza si pentru a-i educa. 

Putine natiuni au mai multa experienta sau au dobandit o intelegere mai profunda in legatura cu trauma ireversibila provocata asupra familiilor ca urmare a separarii fortate a copiilor de parintii lor; a anularii dreptului copilului la parintii lui si a dreptului unui parinte de a-si educa copiii in propria cultura si credinta. Aceasta echivaleaza de fapt cu jefuirea identitatii copiilor. 

….O situatie similara are loc la momentul de fata in Norvegia, datorita legilor promulgate, legi pentru care vor plange si pe care le vor regreta intr-o buna zi…. 

Discurs Dr. Claudia Giurgiuman, cercetator in domeniul biologiei moleculare si advocat neobosit pentru Protectia Copilului. A lucrat ca cercetator oncolog timp de 10 ani, inclusiv la nivel post doctoral, iar pe parcursul ultimilor 4 ani s-a specializat in etica cercetarilor umane si in administratie legislativa. A obtinut doctoratul in domeniul medicinii si diploma universitara cu distinctie clasa I in stiinte. De asemenea, este licentiata, implicata in managementul proiectelor. A scris un numar considerabil de articole recunoscute pe plan international de catre specialisti in domeniu, articole acre au fost publicate in reviste prestigioase de specialitate [publicatii semnae cu numele ei de fata – Claudia Popa]. A obtinut ‘Premiul Tanarului Cercetator’, ‘Premiul Pentru Pioneriat in Cercetari’, ‘Premiul Australian pentru  studii aprofundat’ (post-graduale) si mi-au fost acordate fonduri pentru a coordona cercetari post-doctorale. A calatorit atat in tara cat si in strainatate pentru a-si prezenta cercetarile  la cateva dintre cele mai prestigioase universitati si institute de cercetare  printre care: Universitatea Harvard, Centrul (Institutul) Oncologic Memorial Sloan Kettering din New York  si Institutul de Patologie Moleculara din Viena. Acest CV impresionant a fost impartasit de Claudia Giurgiuman la inceputul discursului.

Claudia Giurgiuman:

Claudia GiurgiumanAcestea fiind spuse, va asigur ca scopul meu principal care m-a determinat sa vin astazi aici, izvoraste dintr-o convingere ferma ca absolut toti copiii au dreptul elementar si fundamental de a fi protejati. Ceea ce ne-a adunat astazi pe toti aici, este hotararea noastra de a lua o pozitie ferma in favoarea protectiei copilului. Ca o mama a doua fiice, odata cu trecerea timpului devin din ce in ce mai ingrijorata de orice forma de abuz sau maltratare al copilului. Imi este imposibil sa concep cum poate  cineva sa vatame un copil lipsit de aparare. De-a luncul ultimilor 4 ani, am avut privilegiul sa ma implic in actiuni de ajutorare a copiilor saraci prin organizarea de strangeri de fonduri care pana in prezent au contribuit cu o suma de peste $40.000. Comunitatea care sta astazi alaturi de mine a donat zeci sau poate chiar sute de mii de dolari pentru constructia de orfelinate si alte facilitati in tari din lumea a treia.

Toti cei adunati aici am venit astazi ca niste advocati hotarati a promova protectia copilului. Doamnelor si domnilor, in aceasta luna se implinesc 8 ani de cand fostul prim-ministru al Australiei dl Kevin Rudd a cerut public iertare in numele intregii natiuni pentru atrocitati teribile care au avut loc intre anii 1900 – 1970.

Doamnelor si domnilor, cu numai 46 de ani in urma guvernul Australiei inca smulgea cu forta copiii aborigeni din bratele mamelor lor care-i iubea, pentru a-i civiliza si pentru a-i educa. Aceasta teribila greseala este inca proaspata in memoria noastra colectiva, greseala pentru care continuam sa platim pana in ziua de astazi. Putine natiuni au mai multa experienta sau au dobandit o intelegere mai profunda in legatura cu trauma ireversibila provocata asupra familiilor ca urmare a separarii fortate a copiilor de parinti lor; a anularii dreptului copilului la parintii lui si a dreptului unui parinte de a-si educa copiii in propria cultura si credinta. Aceasta echivaleaza de fapt cu jefuirea identitatii copiilor.

Exista studii si statistici incontestabile care ne arata ca orice copil separat de familia iubitoare este dezavantajat din toate punctele de vedere. Sunt mult mai inclinati sa aiba de-a face cu politia  cand vor deveni adolescenti. Este mult mai probabil ca vor suferi de complexe de inferioritate, depresii, de boli mintale. Sunt mult mai expusi si vulnerabili la abuzuri fizice, emotionale si sexuale. Aproape in fiecare caz, au fost invatati sa respinga complet cultura si obiceiurile parintilor lor biologici.

De aceea, pe 13 februarie 2008 dl Kevin Rudd a cerut iertare in numele intregii natiuni: „pentru politica si legile promulgate de guvernele succesive asupra acestei tari.”

O situatie similara are loc la momentum de fata in Norvegia, datorita legilor promulgate, legi pentru care vor plange si pe care le vor regreta intr-o buna zi: „pentru durere profunda, mari suferinte si pierderi irecuperabile pentru semenii nostri Australieni.” Kevin Rudd si-a cerut iertare mamelor si tatilor, fratilor si surorilor, pentru destramarea familiilor si  comunitatilor. Doamnelor si domnilor, in cuvantarea aceea, dl Rudd a subliniat in mod foarte hotarat faptul ca: „nedreptatile din trecut nu mai au voie sa se intample nicicand, niciodata in tara asta.”

Ca cetatean al Australiei este responsabilitatea mea, la fel cum este si responsabilitatea voastra ca si cetateni Australieni, sa ne asiguram ca acest lucru nu se va mai repeta nicicand, niciodata, copiilor  nostri. De asemenea, ca si cetatean Roman, eu am aceeasi responsabilitate fata de copiii Romani. Acesta este motivul pentru care ne-am adunat aici, pentru familia Bodnariu, pentru a-i proteja.

Norvegie, asculta-ma bine! Si tu esti responsabila pentru copiii tai. Esti responsabila si pentru copiii Bodnariu. Esti responsabila de propriul tau viitor. Esti responsabila pentru natiunea ta.Nu lasati rusinea care pateaza Australia sa devina rusinea generatiilor tale viitoare. Nu lasa sa treaca decenii intregi, pana cand copiii furati de tine vor deveni adulti si te vor condamna pentru jefuirea identitatii lor. Norvegie, inca nu este prea tarziu pentru a-ti repara greseala. Nu e prea tarziu pentru a restitui copiii smulsi din sanul familiei Bodnariu. Nu e prea tarziu sa dai inapoi toti copiii pe care i-ai furat pe baza unor pretexte lipsite de orice temei. 

Cerem sa se faca urgent o investigatie independenta si o evaluare impartiala a cazului  Bodnariu. Norvegie, nu permite o repetare a istoriei. Intr-o zi adevarul va iesi la suprafata. Mai devreme sau mai tarziu, copiii pe care i-ai furat vor dori sa li se faca dreptate.

In calitatea mea de experta in etica si in administratie legislativa, te intreb pe tine Norvegie, cum poate sa fie considerata etica fapta ta? Da-mi voie sa iti spun ca nu exista nimic etic in ea. Unde sunt comisiile independente care supravegheaza serviciile de protectie a copilului? Norvegie, legislatia ta este foarte gaunoasa, iar institutiile tale de administratie sunt vrednice de dispret. Astazi, vocile natiunilor se ridica intr-un singur glas cerandu-va sa dati inapoi copiii pe care i-ati furat de la familiile lor iubitoare.

Norvegie, auzi tu disperarea tatilor? Esti complet surda la chinul mamelor care tanjesc dupa copiii lor? Auzi tu durerea inabusita a miilor de copii care adorm in fiecare seara plangand de dor dupa mamele lor? Copii care se intreaba daca mamele lor se mai gandesc la ei? Se intreaba daca minciunile pe care li le-ati spus despre parintii lor sunt adevarate. Ma intreb acum eu insami, oare la ce se gandesc Eliana si Naomi Bodnariu in aceste momente? Si sunt ferm convinsa ca ar dori sa se afle in bratele mamicii lor. Norvegie, esti tu in stare sa intelegi dragostea unei mame? Speranta mea este ca vocile noastre sa fie auzite cu mult mai departe de tarmurile  acestea, si mai ales de catre toate mamele norvegiene.

Mame norvegiene, privesc spre voi si ma astept din partea voastra sa va ridicati si sa luptati pentru drepturile tuturor copiilor vostri. As dori sa auziti zbuciumul inimii de mama a lui Ruth Bodnariu de fiecare data cand va puneti propriul vostru bebelus seara la culcare. Norvegie, nicidecum si niciodata  Ruth Bodnariu nu-si va uita copiii ei. Nicidecum si niciodata nu va inceta Ruth a lupta  pentru a-i readuce acasa. Pana in ziua mortii ei, Ruth iti va fi un tepus in carnea ta, o amintire permanenta a marelui  rau savarsit de tine.

Te-ai uitat tu in ochii inlacrimati ai lui Ruth? Esti tu in stare sa simtii durerea inimii ei zdrobite? Unde iti este inima Norvegie? Da inapoi cat mai repede copiii pe care i-ai furat. Astazi este ziua ta, oportunitatea ta pentru a-ti indrepta greseala.

De asemenea, daca excelenta sa, dl Peter William Tobin va auzi aceste cuvantari, mesajul meu de astazi pentru dvs. este sa ascultati strigatele oamenilor care cer sa treceti la actiune. Eu cred ca sunteti un om respectabil si un  luptator pentru drepturile omului. Avem incredere ca veti pleda pentru familia Bodnariu si veti lupta pentru adevar. Avem incredere ca veti pleda pentru copiii norvegieni ca si cum ar fi ai dumneavoastra. Va rugam sa pledati pentru viitorul Norvegiei! Astazi, in numele comunitatilor Romane si Australiene adunate aici, in numele miilor de oameni care s-au adunat in jurul lumii sa lupte pentru aceasta cauza, in numele multimii silentioase, in numele celor care au prea multa teama sau sunt prea slabi sa se ridice pentru aceasta cauza, in numele lui Ruth si a lui Marius Bodnariu, in numele lui Eliana Bodnariu,  in numele lui Naomi Bodnariu,  in numele lui Matei Bodnariu,  in numele lui Ioan Bodnariu si  in numele bebelasului Ezekiel Bodnariu, purtam strigatul inimilor lor cu mult mai departe decat ar putea ei sa-l poarte.

Va multumim in mod anticipat domnule Tobin pentru ca veti fi si dumneavoastra o voce care contribuie la rezolvarea acestui caz si la reintoarcerea acasa a copiilor nostri. Dumnezeu sa va binecuvinteze! Va multumesc. Aduceti-ne copiii acasa!

Dar care nu ar fi posibil fara munca neobosita a sotiei mele care isi dezvaluie talentul si pasiunea pentru aceasta lucrare de mare importanta si contribuie la inaintarea Evangheliei Domnului nostru Isus Christos, lucrare care sa fie o voce pentru toti crestinii din intreaga lume. Am fost constienti de la inceputul acestui blog ca crestinii au fost lipsiti de surse de stiri crestine care  nu se gaseau  pe alte bloguri sau in presa (in Limba Romana).. si asta ne-a determinat sa le traducem si sa le publicam aici pe blog.

Suntem un numar mare de crestini si avem nevoie de o voce, la care este bine sa se adauge cat mai multe, pentru ca zilele in care traim necesita ca toti crestinii sa fie constienti de ceea se petrece in jurul lor, privitor la lucrurile de care sunt afectati direct. Vedem cum drepturile crestinilor se deterioreaza pe zi ce trece, crestinii si principiile crestine sunt asaltate mai mult ca oricand, de aceea trebuie sa stam de veghe si sa nu lasam ca oamenii fara Dumnezeu sa ne aduca sub tacere. Noi ca crestini am fost chemati sa fim lumina lumii, si blogosfera  este un mod prin care putem arata lumii calea luminiii si adevarului care se poate gasi numai in Christos Domnul. Vom continua cu ajutorul Domnului si in limitele putintei noastre sa continuam sa traducem articole care sa fie de folos cititorilor nostri, la fel vom continua cu transcrierea predicilor, care poate prea putini dintre dumneavoastra stiti ca i-au foarte mult timp si este o munca enorma, editoriale sau comentarii din partea pastorilor si lucratorilor care contribuie la realizarea acestei activitati. La fel vom cauta sa postam stiri care afecteaza credinta crestina.

In acesti cinci ani de cand am pornit acest blog, am fost vizitati de vizitatori din 227 de tari diferite. Peste un milion patru sute de mii de vizitatori unici sunt din Romania, 360 000 din Statele Unite, aproape 0 suta de mii din Italia, si lista continua. Suntem foarte incantati de aceste cifre, dar nu ne oprim aici, ci dorim ca prin intermediul blogului AgnusDei sa  raspandim valorile crestine, la cat mai multi oameni de pana la marginile pamantului si multi sa auda Evanghelia Mantuirii prin Isus Christos spre mantuirea sufletelor lor.

Va multumim pentru tot sprijinul dumneavoastra si Domnul sa va binecuvanteze in umblarea voastra cu El.

Agnus Dei – Mielul lui Dumnezeu – Dorim ca prin activitatea noastra sa Il aratam pe El, pe Domnul Isus, asa cum Il descrie Biblia in Ioan 1:29 – A doua zi, Ioan a văzut pe Isus venind la el şi a zis: „Iată Mielul* lui Dumnezeu, care** ridică păcatul lumii!

Petre Costea – Dreading the Dreadful – Norwegians Fear Barnevernet

Photo Obiectiv Vocea Brailei

Photo Obiectiv Vocea Brailei

Norwegians dread Barnevernet. Especially the parents, expectant mothers, and those who practice responsible parenting styles which conflict with Norway’s secular parenting ideology. This is the picture that emerges from the many electronic communications dispatched from Norway to the international team working on the Bodnariu matter, as well as the countless commentaries posted on different facebook pages around the world which relate to this incident. Together, they weave a compelling story of fear and apprehension of Barnevernet, an odd Norwegian institution which rightly may be described as a Stalinist monstrosity. Many Norwegians are fed up with it and are keenly aware that it brings shame on their country. It embarrasses them and, as you will see below, stokes fear in many of Norway’s families. The families, however, feel helpless. Their stories are remarkably insightful into the practice of the legal abduction of children in Norway, a dark aspect of Norwegian life which the world cannot access and which is not depicted in the mainstream mass media where any subjects adverse to Norway are taboo.

peter costeaTake, for instance, this desperate facebook comment from a Norwegian national: „Dear friends abroad. We are really thankful for your support in this matter. Thankful that you will give us your help. We need your help, we are fighting against this murder-barnevernet here. It’s a shame to Norway, but so it is and we have to go on!” Or this one: „OMG, Thank you World!! Its like living in hell up here in Norway. Our children does (sic!) not belong to the parents or the family anymore, its the Barnevern (sic!) and Gouverment (sic!) we give life to!!!”

Other comments decry that parents are being turned in to Barnevernet by their neighbors or anonymous callers. The latter might be a foe, a disgruntled coworker, or a mother envious that the kids next door do better in school or sports. Or the anonymous caller might seek vengeance because the parents stepped on the caller’s toes. One commenter revealed that anonymous callers turn in parents who drink alcohol in front of their children. One person opined that some of the anonymous callers are Norwegians who dislike foreigners, and another one complained of „cultural intolerance, racial intolerance and extremist nationalism” on the part of Norway’s institutions.

According to the messages received, it is not uncommon for parents to receive letters from Barnevernet summoning them for appointments in which they are interrogated about their children’s upbringing. One indignant lady disclosed the subjects, which I will call specious, on which she was questioned: why her son was not enrolled in sports, and why, the mother herself, did not attend a school function some weeks before the interrogation? The question about the son could indicate Barnevernet’s belief that he might not be developing well, while the question posed to the mother that she is withdrawn, anti-social, depressed, suffering from mental illnesses, or in need of counseling or medication. The mother breathed a sigh of relief when, following the interrogation, Barnevernet did not take her son away. But others have not been so lucky. Complaints also have implicated mothers who work late into the evening instead of being at home feeding their children.

The interrogation techniques also stand out. In much of Scandinavia, the commenters said, teachers no longer ask children if they are spanked at home because the children have learned to answer NO or not answer at all. They are keenly aware of the high odds that if they say they are spanked they will not see their parents or siblings again. For this reason, the educators resort to indirect and highly subjective approaches to obtain the answers they want. For instance, children are asked to draw on paper their concerns, worries, or what they dream about at night. The drawings then end up before „experts” who surmise from the drawings the children’s state of mind and whether they are neglected or abused at home. This guess work often becomes the justification Barnevernet uses to sever the children from their parents.

Parents also write that Barnevernet routinely holds individualized meetings with children behind closed doors, or „in camera” meetings as they are denominated in Norwegian law. Only state authorities and the children attend these sessions, to the exclusion of all others, including the children’s parents and attorneys. Children are asked about how they are treated at home by their parents. The interrogation often involves leading questions designed to trap or extort from them the answers or the „evidence” Barnevernet needs to separate the children from their parents.

Others have written that there is an unofficial script which Barnevernet follows to detach children from their biological parents and put them up for adoption. Others write that Barnevernet targets families with more than two (2) children, claiming that having more than two (2) children ipso facto makes it very difficult for parents to properly raise their children. Families with numerous children are fair game to be dismembered by the state. Targeted also are families who homeschool their children. Some have fled Norway. They are called families „on the run from Barnevernet.” In fact, one comment came from a family which moved to the United States to be able to raise its several children in accordance with the family’s Christian faith.

Just a few days ago I came across this powerful, yet painful, comment from a Norwegian gripped by fear of the Barnevernet. He and his wife have six (6) children and are expecting their seventh. They do not disclose the pregnancy „because the state is stealing children.” They „live in fear every day in Norway because we [could] never know who or when they steal children.” Barnevernet, he added, daily takes away from parents seven (7) children. One day his children played in the neighborhood with other children, and Barnevernet „stole four children from our neighbors.” His family had been investigated by Barnevernet „over 20 times.” After each investigation he and his wife developed medical problems. „Barnevernet are killing us slowly in Norway,” he wrote, also pointing out that some parents have committed suicide after their children were abducted. Others develop severe stress and depression. The commenter compared the struggle against Barnevernet to a „fight against satan.” He thanked Romanians for taking to the streets to protest Barnevernet’s atrocities, adding that the protests gave Norwegians „hope to win” their own „war” against Barnevernet. The protests gave him more hope than ever that the „war” will be won.

Rational fears

Are these fears irrational? Hardly. Consider some of the provisions of Norway’s Child Welfare Act („Act”), improperly so called, and which, by the standards of the modern citizen accustomed to the rule of law, are frightening. They legislate the nightmare that Barnevernet is. Section 3-1 imposes an obligation on „municipalities” to „closely monitor the conditions in which children live.” How is this „close monitoring” done? Some means have been identified already: anonymous callers, teacher complaints, periodic interrogations of parents by state officials, letters in the mail, disgruntled neighbors, separate meetings with children. According to Section 3-1the monitoring is intended to „bring to light neglect, social and emotional problems” of children and thus to avoid „lasting problems” for the children. This is all done under the pretense of Barnevernet pursuing „the child’s best interests.” Section 4-1 of the Act.

Following complaints and investigations, Barnevernet is empowered to take „measures” to rectify the problems children allegedly face, including the issuance of „interim orders.” Section 4-6 of the Act. This includes the issuance of a „care order without the consent of the parents.” In the vernacular, this means an order to take the children away from their biological parents. There is no time limit on how long the children can be separated from their biological parents. Note, though, that if the separation „has lasted more than two years” the Act imposes a presumption that returning the children to their biological parents and removing them from the foster parents could harm the children. Accordingly, the children are likely to be adopted by the foster parents. This means that, the longer the separation, the chances of the children being reunited with their biological parents become virtually nil and the children are put up for adoption. Section 4-20 of the Act.

The child-parent relationship, however, can be severed even before the expiration of the two-year period where „the child has become so attached to [the foster parents”] … that … removing the child may lead to serious problems for him or her.” Note also that the „foster parents,” not the biological parents, are „entitled to state their opinion” on whether the children should or should not be returned to their biological parents or, instead, be adopted by the former. Section 4-21 of the Act.

The Norwegians’ stories compel the view that in Norway it may very well be a crime to have many children. If you do, Barnevernet will get you, or to you, sooner or later. It’s just a matter of time before Barnevernet will knock on your door, with or without official summons. One may say that this is to be expected from a Norway which is, and has traditionally been, in the forefront of the global movement for population control. Socialist Norway takes from those who have to give to those who don’t. This is the basic tenet of socialism with which Romanians are well acquainted, having been victimized by it for nearly 50 years. Norway, however, extends this doctrine to families, demography, and procreation. Families with many children are dismembered and the children are redistributed to those who either do not bother to bring into the world their own progeny, abort their offspring, or are unable to procreate due to their non-procreative lifestyles. The dismemberment of the natural family, and the reconstruction of the artificial family, is Barnevernet’s job. No wonder Norwegians fear it and the rest of the world hates it.

Norwegian politicians: “The horror around child protection” ~ IONUŢ JOHN VOLOŞEN

I was really happy to find out that FINALLY, some Norwegian politicians have awakened, and they are in total agreement with some of the arguments we brought forth from the beginning of the Bodnariu case, and those are that:
  • the biological principal (parental principle) must weight heavily in the decision
  • if placement is really required, then children must first be placed to relative family
  • there are cases where the interrogators obtain false confessions from the children
  • the decisions to remove the children is mostly based on the psychological reports written by Barnevernet hired psychologists.
  • there are no checks and balances on the decision power of Barnevernet. There is no independent institution to verify the validity of these measures.
[Romanian: In sfarsit unii din politicienii Norvegieni s-au desteptat si agreeaza intocmai cu punctele pe care noi le mentionam inca de la inceptu, si anume:
  • principiul biologic (parental) trebuie sa aiba valoare si sa cantareasca greu in decizia Barnevernet-ului
  • daca chiar este nevoie, plasarea trebuie facuta in primul rand la familia apropiata,
  • uneori interogatorii obtin marturii false de la copii,
  • toate decizile se i-au be baza rapoartelor intocmite de psihologilor angajati de Barnevernet,
  • puterea de decizie a Barnevernet-ului nu este verificata de institutii independente. Ma bucura acest articol, inseamna ca totusi nu vorbim prostii.]

It is said that no one is deprived of the care of their children without reason. But is it always so? As elected representatives of the Green Party we require that a process be initiated immediately at both the local and national level to restructure the child welfare services in Norway.

We need to get a grasp on „Ida” and other youth horror stories of child welfare services that produce terrible pain. It is painful to hear the parents’ desperate struggle to get their children back. The child protection system, as shown in the media, is characterized by fear and fighting more than care and love. Emotional ties are strong, regardless of the circumstances behind them. Barnevernet makes an important and often thankless job. A job that is being criticized of doing both too little and too much intervention in our private sphere. Where does it go wrong? We would like to explain why we want a fundamental debate in order to amend the Child Welfare Act and the system around it.

Trauma is being created every day by ordinary people like you and I, in a world most of us never knew existed. It was decided that Ida could not remain with her mother. It was thought that she would experience a better care under child protection. Instead, it was a long nightmare in various institutional locations. In several cases, she was coerced, held down, taken in handcuffs and treated like a criminal. She was in flamboyant despair many times and was eventually heard by Aftonbladet. For most people, we only see the consequences of a sad statistic later. As politicians we cannot sit idly by and let this continue.

Respect for helpers

Barnevernet consists of thousands of employees. Most of these employees meet the families, write reports and recommend actions based on their observations. Most of the families are satisfied with the help they receive from Barnevernet and often it is the parents themselves who ask for help. A care occurs rarely and only as a last resort. Then the biological principle is supposed to weigh heavily, and child protection must always give priority to the child’s immediate family as an alternative to foster homes. But are these principles followed in practice? Is a placement order always the last resort? How is it to be employed in an organization that has such a huge responsibility? Some tell of a world with too little resources. They are few employees assigned to too many cases and with continuous new guidelines. There is not enough time. The employees are graduates with too much responsibility and power, and the supervisor is not available because of his own affairs. Burnout, high turnover and internal challenges often go unnoticed. Other employees tell how grateful it feels to be able to help children in their struggle in life. Employees who feel they are being heard, oozing work pride, despite a mental heavy job. We have great respect for anyone who wants to help other people when life abuts. It is one of the most important values we have in our society and it is the basis for our considerations. In other words we do not want to reproach you who work in child care, we want to put our focus on system behind and on the part of the system that does not work well enough.

Is it in the best interest of the child?

To understand the system better, we need to look at the values it is based on. In the Child Welfare Act section 4-1 speaks of the child’s best interests: „In applying the provisions of this chapter shall be emphasized on finding measures in the best interest of the child. This shall include the emphasis on giving the child a stable and good contact with adults and continuity of care. ”

At first glance this section is straightforward. But diving closer by looking a little further into the matter, reveals a number of pitfalls. What is the „child’s best interest.” What criteria should be applied? Is it us as parents, child protection, specialists or community who decides? And where is the „list” of what is allowed and not in parental care?

The adverse situations

It seems as though there is a certain fear of child welfare services in the community, and perhaps particularly for foreigners residing in Norway. Many people think of cultural differences and do not really understand what is considered right and wrong. Let’s try to put us into some of the so-called horror scenarios that some have heard about and what they might be afraid of.

What if I as a parent come from a culture where I want my children to have the warmth and love that comes from sleeping in the same bed as me, or that I let my kids play outside until late at night because it is quite common in my culture? Is not this a freedom I have as a parent? What happens if a neighbor seems way I live on is outrageous and sends a worrying message to the child welfare services?

What happens is that clause 3.4 comes in and says that the child welfare service has the right and obligation to conduct investigations, and that parents cannot oppose this. And as part of the investigation can demand to speak to the child in private. This is already an extremely important law to ensure that children experience a safe life, free of violence, abuse or other forms of neglect.

But as every parent knows, children at times disagree with parents about rules and the ways of doing things. Children go through different phases of rebellion. It is completely natural and an important process of developing their own volition. If issues of child protection comes at the wrong time, the child or adolescent naturally complain about their parents, and may find that someone will finally hear their side of the story. Not fully understanding the gravity of the situation, young children might let their imagination flow while getting attention from a well-meaning officer. How can we know that it really is the truth that emerges? Can we base the „truth” solely on the observations and the conversations during the interview, and allow the court to make decisions later solely based on these reports?

Emotionally desperate

In respect to the people who have been subjected to gross mishandling of the system we must also include the following perspective, although we wish that the reality was not so. We must emphasize that they are the exception, not the rule. But there are those exceptions that create fear and mistrust to one of our most important organizations.

After the expert interrogates the child, he writes a report which is then used as a basis for decisions on measures. Before the child even recognizes the meaning of the words the severe measures are initiated. Among other things, this is something we heard Ida tell us about her history. She regretted what she told the interviewer about her mother.

The police is assigned, along with a Barnevernet employee, to remove the child when coercion is involved. Police gladly remove a desperate screaming children out of the arms of his mother or father in an untenable horror scenario. Besides the serious and often life-long trauma that occurs in these situations, how will the child relate to police and other authorities later in life? Articles about „Glass Girl” shows us how easily children can be exposed to this trauma that many would call an abuse of child protection services.

The story of „Linda” in Aftenposten tells how she one day was unexpectedly picked up at the workplace by police and handcuffed in front of her colleagues. A concern had been submitted on the basis that she threw a towel on her son in a moment of frustration when her five-year old would not get dressed. Police retrieved the children who were in kindergarten and at school, and placed them immediately in emergency. Why? Because Linda and her husband was suspected of committing violence against them. The case was dismissed, but not before „Linda” had lost her job, her husband had been on sick leave and the children were traumatized by the whole experience. After this event, they did not get any psychologic help from Barnevernet, and had to seek help themselves.

Sometimes children are really saved from destructive conditions in their home. But could we follow this process in a more loving and respectful manner, and perhaps without the police involved?

Uncontrolled power

The hallmark of a democracy is that the people are sovereign and have control of the authorities. Otherwise we have a police state where the government has control over people. In Norway we fortunately have a democracy that works, with a democratic tripartite of power (separation of powers). We have the legislative, the judicial and the executive power. This division of power is designed so that all three are interdependent, and so none of the three can exercise power alone. The basis of this democratic division of power was established by the political philosopher Montesquieu, who argued that any person with power is capable of abusing it. To prevent the abuse of power, we have chosen this tripartite separation of powers, so that one person or one system is not able to exercise power alone without being controlled by the other two. For example, the same person should not be all three a lawyer, judge and police man in the same case.

Unfortunately, in the otherwise open and democratic Norway, we have ended up with children who too often are not provided this democratic principle. Barnevernet lacks a tripartite of power so that we, the sovereign people can check for possible abuse of power. Too much power lies within Barnevernet where the same people alike can take the role of adviser and helper, and then for the next moment be the ones deciding on the destiny of the child. A possible care order is determined by the County Council for Child Welfare and Social Affairs, but the relevant examiner’s child welfare report adds great weight to this decision. Parents must prove their ability to provide care in court against Barnevernet’s own officer. Therefore, the legal system works in a complete opposite way. It goes without saying that one should be considered innocent until proven guilty.

But once a parent first loses custody, it is very difficult to get the children back. At great despair, the family can contact the media, but Barnevernet insists on confidentiality and therefore in most cases these allegations are never heard. These confidentiality rules make it difficult to assess what really happened in case. Therefore the case will never come to light.

The fact that child welfare lacks transparency and can act as a „police state”, has created headlines around the world. People are afraid that their children will be taken away from them unless they understand what they may have done wrong and without that they cannot defend themselves. This particularly applies to foreign families. The „Norwegian-System” is hard enough to maneuver for a normal Norwegian. For a foreign family who may have not yet mastered the language, a sudden meeting with Barnevernet is perceived not only as traumatic, but completely incomprehensible. It must be easier to get information about what is meant by „good care” when one lives in Norway. Where is this information and who ensures that it is given? Is this something we could achieved through political means in order to avoid more unfortunate misunderstandings in the future?

The family ties

In a serious situation where children’s lives and health are considered in danger, therefor we have to accept emergency intervention to protect children. This will be done with respect for family privacy and with great care for the little ones. But one should never underestimate the familial and biological ties as a basic value in a child’s life. These ties are not easily replaced by a new adult person. On this basis, we believe that it should take an exceptional situation for a child to be placed with anyone other than close family and friends, and in the same community, although there could be solutions that are apparently of better quality. Barnevernet is obligated to follow the biological principle, but yet we see in the cases that come into the media spotlight, that this is not always the case. We read about families who could have avoided the pain of being separated if the family only received offers of help in the home. What fails in these kind of cases?

In addition, children who need it, should be offered immediate trauma treatment, a treatment where emotions are processed in a sustainable way. We as a society must not accept that traumatized children be medicated, just because we do not have sufficient resources to work thru the real problems. These children need trustees to talk to professionals with trauma understanding. Here we have politicians that see the need to increase the financial framework for mental health services and gladly earmark those for children and adolescents in child welfare care.

Medication and trauma understanding

It is natural to put a lid on emotions that are too painful to feel at the moment they are created. Small pain may be held down with light stimuli, such as sugar and smoke. Stronger pain requires heavier stimuli to keep „the lid on.” Drugs and alcohol, can all be used to self-medicate. One can criminalize such behavior, or we can look at the real needs and ask for help. What these children and young people need is help to loosen the lid in a controlled manner by releasing emotions that have been repressed, along with a confident adult person who actually understand the process and what goes on. Such redemption often comes only when someone cares, without rejecting or sudden abdication. A hug, a listening ear, someone who is not trying to „fix a” but just being present. Sometimes it can start with an outburst of anger. Then you have to endure thru it without using overwhelming force, if you really want to help.

We heard in Ida’s story that someone reached out to her and endured her pain better than others. For the children to regain confidence and grow to become people in life, they must have such an attitude repeated over time. People with respect, empathy and time are those that prove to really be able to help. Then, the amount of accumulated emotions decreased. Penalties and enforcement gives the opposite effect and only builds up even more pain. This can also confirm the child’s own reflections on that there is an even that is failing. The children often notoriously blame themselves for what goes wrong around them.

Human care

It is thus obvious that education alone is not enough, one must also have the proper relational competence, great capacity for empathy and love to their own experiences to draw on. Here we need more resources to appropriate employees who dare to stand in tough conditions, but which also has the care and the personal qualities needed to accommodate traumatized children. Too often such institutions staffed with unqualified personnel and assistants.

The institutions themselves, should also see if they can work in a different way. Why do we have so many big institutions when we know that what children and youth need is transparency, confidence and a way to deal with their issues? We must see that there is a need for more small institutions, which operated as home, with safe grown people ready to really look after their best interests. In addition, there is a great shortage of foster homes across the country. How can we increase the number of foster and allow institutional be absolutely the last resort? It’s no good to just criticize child welfare work. Such articles are plentiful. Now they have to find solutions and put money on the table. We as politicians can not speculate anymore – we must act!

New times – new child care

It is about time that we look with fresh eyes at the way we treat the weakest in our society. Barnevernet and its system must be changed around and reflect a new age. All human beings have an intrinsic value. We should recognize the important job Barnevernet performs. Whoever saves lives and helps families to a better life. There is no doubt that the child does a lot right. But we must focus our vision on that which fails.

We know that enforcement creates trauma and is deeply damaging both for the individual concerned and for society. Forced situations also require immediate emergency assistance for children and their parents. When children or parents do not give up without a fight, it goes without saying that something may be wrong. A system that acts as the public caregiver must be based on love and respect for man. It goes without saying – but it is not always the reality.

Transparency gives confidence

We must put in place a democratic separation of powers around decisions in child care, so that the sovereign people can control our government. Secrecy can no longer be an obstacle to this. There are many ways to anonymize these cases. How it works now, most cases processed finished in a judicial system that may base their decisions on erroneous or subjective information, and the people have the ability to control. We need to take this debate on how power should be exercised in the future and what offers we will have for families and children in need.

Barnevernet relies on the confidence of the population. It is trust that should characterize its work, not dread. To achieve this, we must also listen to the employees within the social services, those who know where the shoe pinches. And most importantly we must listen to welfare pros , to these children and young people who have been in the child welfare system, which states: „Children and young people have the msot knowledge about their life. They are as much worth as adults. They need love and need to be believed and taken seriously. ”

A system that has as its highest goal to protect children’s best interests, must reflect this. Child Welfare Act must be amended so that a distribution of power is introduced. We need an external body that represents the people, the hiring process in child welfare that reflects the work seriously and financial framework confirms the important work being done.

As elected representatives of the Green Party we ask that both the local and national level to initiate a process immediately to restructure the child welfare services in Norway.

God’s Will vs. Your Will – Tim Conway

If in your heart you’re not truly sold out to God’s will, you are going to misinterpret your will as if it’s God’s will. If we are going to truly discern God’s will, we must say as Christ did to the Father, “Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.”
