Editor's Note: Numerous instances of plagiarism have been discovered in Dan Kimber's “Education Matters” column, which ran in the News- Press from September 2003 to September 2011. In those columns where plagiarism has been found, a For the Record specifying the details will be appended to the piece. I'm hooked on this paper's Saturday religious section. Of the good folks who weigh in each week, the Rev. Bryan Griem seems to have garnered the most attention for his resolute stands on a number of controversial issues.

Both Pastor Bryan Griem and Pastor Jon Barta were asked their opinion on the upholding of Proposition 8 and both answered from the Bible perspective ("In Theory: Reactions to Prop. 8 court ruling," Aug.14). As a Christian, both the Old and New Testaments guide my life and those of my children (all adults) and grandchildren. My Bible says sin is sin. Saying it isn't a sin , doesn't make it so. Griem is a caring, compassionate man who teaches his flock the truths of the Bible.

Saturday was a day of milestones at the Alex Theatre during the sixth annual 168 Film Festival, which gives filmmakers one week to write, shoot and produce a film based on a Bible verse selected at random. This year’s winner for Best Film — “Stained,” which is about a society that isolates its undesirables — became the first production shot on a high-density RED ONE Digital Camera to take the top prize at a festival. The RED ONE camera is being touted as a more cost-effective tool for fledgling filmmakers to capture big-budget movie quality.

Since I have been working as a psychotherapist, I have noticed that many psychological theories and behavior modifications are in the Bible. Issues that bring individuals to seek out professional help are sprinkled throughout God?s Word. A simple fact in mental health is that the choices people make and the way they behave can alter some life problems. I want to be clear to note that definitely not all problems can be taken away by choices ? because some psychological issues need medication, and many individuals have deep wounds from childhood, or other stages of life, that need professional help.

For some time now, I have considered the fact that while we must use the Bible as our universal truth on which to model our lives, the people and families written about within the Bible were at best dysfunctional. While I am a firm believer that the Word of God must be opened and used in our public meetings and applied to our personal life, I also believe we must take into account the grace Jesus brought us in the New Testament. One ought to also take the context and historical setting into consideration before we rigidly apply it to our lives today.

The J. Paul Getty Trust failed Thursday to derail a lawsuit by the Armenian Orthodox Church that accuses the museum of harboring stolen illuminated medieval manuscripts - 755-year-old works that are masterpieces and, to the church, spiritually and historically sacred. After a brief hearing, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Abraham Khan denied the Getty 's motion to dismiss the claim. The museum's attorneys argued that the deadline for filing the suit had passed decades ago under the statute of limitations.

What does it exactly mean to forgive? It is for the other person? Us? God? The Bible does tell us to forgive and likens it to the way God forgave us through Christ's sacrifice. "Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ, God forgave you" (Ephesians 4:31-32). Some people have been extremely injured in life. They may be stuck and unable to move on. When this happens, some seemingly caring Christian may tell them they need to forgive and move on, that lack of forgiviness is a sin. But what if someone is traumatized, wronged, or just plain hurt by another person they have forgiven, and they can't move on emotionally?

Don't remove love for Michael Jackson I am writing regarding the July 14 article "Michael Jackson's resting place defaced." I disagree with removing the fans' messages that are written on outside walls of Michael Jackson's mausoleum. I am surprised that Forest Lawn officials consider it vandalism. How can they consider these messages defacement, when fans try to give Michael Jackson their true love, and express themselves to him in a way that they could never get the chance to when Michael was still alive?

GLENDALE — The La Crescenta-based Western Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America filed a $105-million lawsuit Tuesday against the J. Paul Getty Museum, claiming the institution illegally bought seven pages from a sacred Bible. The Western Prelacy claims that the seven pages, which date back to 1256, were ripped from the Armenian Orthodox Church's Zeyt'un Gospels during the Armenian Genocide, according to the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. The church is also requesting that the pages be returned.
