Though Neymar ‘fired in the opening goal and helped Firmino slot the other’ in Brazil 2-0 win over Mexico in the Round of 16, he got into needless controversy of ‘play-acting’. His ‘exaggerated reaction – the player dramatically writhed on the turf after Miguel Layun approached him and had made a slight contact with his ankle – suggested a repeat of his play-acting that marred his play in the group phase’ (AFP). Was Neymar a compulsive play-actor? Football hypocrite? Play-acting. Hypocrisy.That’s something Jesus hated hard. He promised certain hell for the Pharisees who were champions at this in a tirade against them recorded in Matthew 23. “You snakes, you brood of vipers, how will you escape being condemned to hell!” – Jesus, the greatest hell-preacher ever preached. Ofcourse stubborn hypocrites will be finally ‘cured’ of their acting in hell – when they holler in agony, it will be because of real agony – not play-acting, as hell is indeed a place of continuous torment!
Rev. Dr. Duke Jeyaraj is a trained Agricultural Engineer [B. Tech from SHIATS, Allahabad, India], who did not pursue a career in the line of his education but nevertheless enjoys growing cacti in the balcony of his flat, during his spare time! He could have been a cricket commentator but prefers to wrap Bible Truth around cricket magic moments and other interesting-to-Google Genners contemporary events. God’s call upon him made him utterly restless and he obeyed that call to by founding the Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission (G4 Mission) to finally find serenity after having served as a International Bank Customer Service Executive/Youth Pastor/Bible College Teacher/Missionary/Youth Mag Editor. G4 Mission is not a church but an inter-denominational ministry to present-day people, a ministry which Duke works full time for, as an itinerant presenter/preacher since 2008 putting to use the formal theological training he received from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore [M. Div & Doctor of Ministry]. Duke is called ‘dad’ by Dale (16) and Datasha (12) and ‘hubby’ by Evangelin and calls Hyderabad, India, his adopted home. Duke has preached by invitation beyond his national borders (we are talking about nations such as Bangladesh, Singapore, Germany, Nepal and the United Arab Emirates).
