What God Has To Say About It...

Therefore each of you must put off falsehood and speak truthfully to your neighbor, for we are all members of one body. ~ Ephesians 4:25

"You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor. ~ Exodus 20:16

Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty. ~ Exodus 23:7

"'Do not steal. "'Do not lie. "'Do not deceive one another. ~ Leviticus 19:11

God is very clear in His Word that we are not to lie about others...yet, how many of us do this every day when we gossip about family members, co-workers, neighbors?  How many of us did this about all we heard about Michael Jackson without having any facts?

Here are the FACTS...a chance to educate yourself about the truth about one of God's own children (just like you and I).

"Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. ~ Luke 6:31

Perhaps the biggest lesson of our time...and many of us missed it.   Please Watch!
This page is a wake-up call, to the TRUTH
As you will see, the TRUTH can be ugly...but we will never learn until we see just how ugly the truth is
This video shows how Michael Jackson was betrayed, persecuted, hurt and humiliated by the worlds media. His innocent and caring nature was exploited by people he trusted. His family and fans know the truth...and he will be forever remembered. This video took forever to make and edit together. I added the grey tint and the static to the video, and I hope you guys like it!

Imagine this...despite your best efforts to constantly do good, you are looked upon as strange or evil. Everything you say or do, is twisted into something opposite what it is. You tell the world who you are through your words and more importantly, your actions, and still people lie about you and crucify your character. You open your heart, helping others along the way but not advertising it as you believe what God asked...to take care of those less fortunate and to do so from your heart, not for publicity, in the process, making yourself vulnerable, and your reward?   Persecution. This is what happened to Jesus, this is the reality at times for all who follow Jesus and who love God and this is what happened to Michael Jackson and to all who are full of God's light and whose desire it is to live a life honoring God. That is a major part of the lesson and something that we saw and continue to see before our very eyes. It's just that many of you didn't recognize it as such. You believed the lies. God wants you to know the truth ~
18"If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. 19"If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you.… ~ John 15:18-19

You want the TRUTH?  What if I told you that nearly everything you heard about Michael Jackson, was a LIE?  

Did you know, for instance, that Michael Jackson helped and SAVED THE LIVES of MANY children and adults, paying for their operations and medical care?  One of those people is Bela Farkas, who recently became a father himself.  If it weren't for Michael Jackson, Bela would have died.  His parents abandoned him at birth and he needed a liver transplant to survive.  Michael sent his team around the world to find a liver for Bela, paid his medical bills for TEN YEARS and kept in touch with him until his untimely death (you can read his story on the home page of this website once you finish reading and viewing this page).  This is just but one of many stories that most do know know.  It is the TRUTH about who Michael Jackson truly was!   

What is the TRUTH about the blatant statement by the reporter that "he obviously molested children? What about him being a "sick freak who had a ferris wheel in his back yard?" Do you want to know the truth about that? The truth about the accusations? Stay here...on this page, continue down this lesson journey and then follow back to the site to have all of your questions answered.
It's too late now.  A man so many of us lied about, joined in the persecution of, shared the jokes, is gone.  And our actions were not without consequence.  They caused this man deep pain, falsely accused him of crimes he didn't commit and gave us a false sense of pride when all he did was give of himself to try to do what God asks us to do.  It's too late to apologize, but it's not too late to learn from this lesson, to finally listen to God, and to stop doing this to one another, and, to stop lying about this man.

Are you finally ready NOW to learn the truth about Michael Jackson, and to embrace the lesson, and message, of his life?

Watch the video below to get a feel for who he REALLY was, and his character, and then follow the direction at the bottom of the page.

Not unlike the self-righteous high priests who were afraid of Jesus...or the people in the crowd who at one time were waving Jesus in and welcoming him with Palm branches, who turned on him, due to FALSE information and fear, and began to yell "CRUCIFY HIM!"  People claiming Christ as Savior and yet operating from a place of hate, do not know Jesus Christ.
THIS...
And THIS....
FALSE ACCUSATIONS FOR MONEY
And THIS....
And THIS...irresponsible, cruel mockery portrayed as "journalism" all for money and personal fame

Keep in mind also the type of reporting that was taking place, and making light of a horrible situation, making it into a game, a Las Vegas gambling machine comparison, to a media that supposedly believed that this man was GUILTY of CHILD MOLESTATION? DO you see what is wrong with this picture? Do you see how even the media, KNEW he was innocent? IF they had believed he was guilty of such a horrific crime, they would never have made a mockery and a game, out of this trial.
A journalist admits the error of his, and the industry's ways:  
The Wrap

By Tim Molloy December 27, 2013 12:54 AM

We in the news media have a bad habit of mocking people when they’re alive and canonizing them when they die.

The classic example is Michael Jackson, dismissively called “the self-proclaimed King of Pop” and belittled before his sudden death. The moment he died, everyone dropped the “self-proclaimed” — and the jokes.

There will never be another Michael Jackson. But there will always be artists and celebrities we demean when they’re breathing – only to praise them when they stop. At a time of year when we look back on some of the amazing people we’ve lost, let’s look at some of the ones we still have – and give them their due.

http://movies.yahoo.com/news/7-people-mock-now-worship-gone-photos-055413000.html

I agree with this journalist's statements.  The problem is, it's not just at one time of year this has to stop, it simply has to STOP!  The industry has to change and become the noble, respectful, truth-seeking industry it should be.
All of the above, directly led to THIS...
And THIS...people, maybe even you? joining in the mockery and laughing at the cruel jokes, media lies and reading the tabloids (photo not connected directly to Michael Jackson).  And let's not forget an arrest of an innocent man.  Watch the way Michael Jackson handles himself, with grace, despite how this is a complete travesty.  Shaking the hands of the officials, remaining peaceful.  This says a LOT.
You didn't see this in the media though, nor did you see the stories about all of the lives Michael Jackson saved through his caring and generosity.  Nor, did you hear the TRUTH.  Instead....THIS is what you saw
The True NEWS you never heard:  Michael Jackson SAVED THE LIVES of children and adults throughout the world.  His mission was healing, NOT harming.
Unsettling? Disturbing? Upsetting?  YES!  You only had to watch this once, but Michael Jackson had to LIVE THIS every day of his life. Hearing these untruths said about him, his character destroyed by LIES.  Could you handle it?  Please continue to read and view this page to learn "the lesson"
How can I say this? Because it's the TRUTH.  We are all, responsible.  We all MUST take responsibility for our actions, both individually, and collectively, because our actions DO have CONSEQUENCES.  When tabloids and media bullied Michael Jackson and continue to do so and we stand idly by and join in, post their links, buy their publications, and join in the jokes and gossip, we destroy our own brothers and sisters.  We destroy one another.

If you had been in Michael Jackson's shoes, and wanted to create positive change, help and heal people, and share your God-given gift with the world, and your reward was lies and character attacks, how would you cope?  Would you also, maybe, experience severe anxiety?  Would you become paranoid as well?  Would you, maybe more and more, feel a need to escape and change things about yourself because you felt so attacked and hated that looking in the mirror became painful?  

Most of us have had to endure being made fun of, or lied about at some point in our lives.  But to have that done on a global scale, where everywhere you go, people look at you as if you have committed heinous crimes against children, when in fact, the opposite is true, and you have helped saved children's lives, how would that impact you?  Would you feel as Michael did?  Would you cry?  Would you feel misunderstood and attacked?  Would you resort at times, to anxiety medications, to dull the pain?  Would you have insomnia? Would you want to try to redeem yourself in some way, to show everybody, who you really were?  To expose the lies?
It's slander
You say it's not a sword
But with your pen you torture men
You'd crucify the Lord ~~ Tabloid Junkie lyrics
"I get angry, yeah. But I know that is the way of the world. That's the theme of my world show: Be kind, heal the world. Let's walk out of here a different human being. Let's love. It's like going to church, but I do it without preaching. I do it through music and dancing.  Marilyn Manson says onstage, "Kill God....take your Bibles and tear them...." Yet the press doesn't attack HIM! And he has got breasts on just like a woman...." ~ Michael Jackson

We are becoming what we should loathe the most.  We are becoming....HATE ~
Please Listen To This Important MESSAGE
DID YOU KNOW?

Janet Arvizo (mother of Gavin Arvizo, the boy who accused Michael Jackson of molestation) met with a civil lawyer in Jan of 2000 to talk to him about MJ molesting her son...problem is...Janet and Gavin had not even MET MJ at this point...it would be 7 or 8 months later that they would meet MJ for the FIRST TIME!

      The Truth About Michael Joseph Jackson...
A Journalist Investigates
1958-2009

Remembering the man.  A celebration of his life, his legacy, his humanitarianism and the truth...finally
Many times I am asked...why does this matter?

Here's WHY:  Michael Jackson 
DESERVES the TRUTH to be known about him, just as you and I do.  What happened to Michael Jackson matters, not only because Michael Jackson was a human being, but also because Michael Jackson's life was a lesson to humanity that we MUST learn from.  That's why this site exists

 ~ Debbie Kunesh, creator of Reflections on the Dance
People always ask why Michael Jackson was so tortured.  What's important to understand is that we must look to Jesus for the answer.  Michael spoke of Jesus all of the time and he mentioned how he always tried to imitate Jesus.  When you look at Jesus' life, many things came against him, because those in darkness, are afraid of light, and are threatened by it.  So also, the same struggles come to those who follow Jesus, who believe and who try to live a life that is pure, as we are asked to do.
