SAARBRUCKEN, a town of Germany, in the Prussian Rhine Province, on the left bank of the Saar, a navigable tributary of the Mosel, is situated 49 M. by rail N.E. of Metz, at the south end of one of the most extensive coal-fields in Europe, to which it has given its name. Pop. (1885) 10,453; (1905) 26,944. With the towns of St Johann, immediately opposite on the right bank of the river, and Malstatt-Burbach, Saarbrucken forms a single community, the three places having been united in 1909. Saarbrucken has four Protestant churches, a Roman Catholic and an Old Catholic church, and a town hall adorned with paintings by Anton von Werner, illustrating episodes of the war of 1870. Other buildings are the castle, until 1793 the residence of the princes of the house of Nassau-Saarbrucken; a gymnasium, founded in 1615, and a celebrated mining academy. The industries of St Johann-Saarbrucken include wool-spinning, brewing, and the manufacture of leather, tobacco, chemicals and iron wares. The trade is chiefly connected with the produce of the neighbouring coal-mines and that of the numerous important iron and glass works of the district. The Saarbrucken coal-fields extend over 70 sq. m., are estimated to yield about 1o,000,000 tons annually, and give employment to nearly 50,000 men. Saarbrucken owes its name to a bridge which existed in Roman times. Its early lords were the bishops of Metz, the counts of the lower Saargau, and the counts of the Ardennes. From 1381 to 1793 it belonged to the counts of Nassau-Saarbriicken, and then, after having been in the possession of France from 18o1 to 1815, it passed to Prussia. In the Franco-Prussian War Saarbrucken was seized by the French on the 2nd of August 1870, but the first German victory on the heights of Spicheren, 3 M. to the south, relieved it four days later.

Hi, I shall be attending the Katholik Kirchentag in Saarbruck and shall be pleased to give a talk on religion in India to any Church Organisation. Please copy my email and send it to Churches in and around Saarbruck. Do you have a community of Cathers in your area? I can answer questions on the Bible and can give expositions of the Parables of the Bible. PEACE FOR SONS OF MAN By Chaudhry Rajinder Nijjhar, M.Sc. Retired Lecturer in Metallurgy, 144, Hamilton Road, Reading RG1 5RE. Tel. 0118 962 3200 People seeking Peace ignore the very first basic principle of religion (Be a son of Man) then they hypocritically blame religion for all the troubles of the world. Both Christ (Satguru) Nanak Dev Ji and Christ Jesus stressed that do not forget your tribal identity if you want to lead an honourable life but people severe their covenant with their tribal elders, “Ilah” and resort to sectarian riots. Christ Jesus said, “Every plant (person) that my heavenly father (Yahweh/Brahma) did not plant (who changes his tribal identity) shall be uprooted alongwith the roots (shall be killed alongwith his supporters)”. Christ Nanak Dev Ji said the same, “ BEEO BEEJ (people who do not forget their tribal identity) PATT LAE GAYAE (shall live with their honour intact); ABB KEUN UGHWAE DAAL (people without their tribal identity are shameless people and “shame” being the foundation of religion, they cannot be sons of God i.e. “Ilah” before “Allah” but that of the Satan). Now, the Chosen People are the demonstration nation (or the nation of Priests) of the world and they are presenting a living example of this first basic principle. Thus, both the Palestinians of Ishmael and the chosen people of Isaac hail from the same Semitic rootstock of Abraham but at present both of them are unfaithful to their tribal elder Abraham who was neither a Jew nor a Mohammedan but a Semite by flesh or outwardly. Religion is a matter of the “heart” and not of the physical body in that St.Paul stressed “A Jew is one who is inwardly and not outwardly”. So, when the Jews become Jews of the physical body and not of the heart, then they severe their covenant with Abraham. The same applies to the Palestinians who have become Mohammedans of the physical body. On severing your covenant with your tribal elders, you are no more a son of Man but a son of Satan or SHANKAR VARNIAE. Jesus in the Parable of wheat and tares (Matt.13 – 24-30) describes the nature of these two. Farmer (Yahweh) sowed good seed (sons of Man), the wheat plants but Satan came at night (religious darkness) and planted his own, the tares. In the morning the Angels, the people perfect in the moral laws, reported this to the Farmer and asked his permission to uproot the tares but the Farmer said, “No. Leave them alone and when the End of the Age comes I will bundle them up and burn them before I would ask my wheat plants to bring in the fruit of their labour”. So, Israel is the place where the tares are bundled up and they are burning and killing each other like those in Kashmir/India as expected of the sons of Satan. It were these clever sons of Satan that John, the Baptist, Prophet Elijah, refused to baptise in the name of Abraham and He rather called them the brood of vipers. He baptised simple minded people, “stones” into the sons of Abraham and when the first Bishop of the Church of God St.Stephan stressed this crucial point to the Temple Priests that we have Abraham as our fore father, then he was stoned to death as expected of the brood of the vipers. It were these sons of Satan who went for their own kind the robber Barabbas and the death of Christ Jesus who had turned the sons of Abraham, “salt of the earth”, into the sons of God, the Saints. Thus, the sons of Abraham praised Christ Jesus for his benevolent works whilst the sons of Satan, the Temple Priests and their blind stooges supported the clever robber of their own type who did not let them even cook their food during the great siege of Jerusalem. After the death of the first Bishop, the next Bishop was frightened of the Jews, who even killed the most humble St.James, the Just mercilessly in 62 A.D. So, the frightened Bishops dare not either baptise men in the name of Abraham or challenge the Temple Priests in humanity anymore. Timid Bishops let the Jewish leaven, Tanakh or Old Testament, enter into the Churches and the Apostles who rebuked them for their malpractices and challenged their immorality were thrown out of the Churches. Thus, the Bishops revolted by telling the Apostles to either preach what they liked or stop visiting their Churches. The Apostles being the Labourers of God told the Bishops that their praises lie with God and not with you corrupt Bishops or people. They stopped visiting those corrupt Churches and most of them opened their own Monasteries. But when the corrupt Bishops gained political importance, then the Romans took advantage of them. The Bishops supplied the soldiers and glorified them on their deaths whilst the Romans helped them to kill those Monks who were criticising them. Then the corrupt Bishops plied the dead “letters” of the Bible, KATAEB, through presbyters and by 325 A.D., they were so blind to spirit that in their non-sense Nicene Creed, a straight jacket for the blind, they declared Christ died and rose on the third day. Now, Christ is the Word that was in the beginning and lived among us in the name of Jesus. Christ being the Light, it is to make a fool of yourself to proclaim your Christship to the spiritually blind people. Thus, Christ Jesus had the pleasure to do so to the spiritually enlightened Samaritan woman at the well who told Jesus that you are a Prophet. Such spiritually advanced spinster is called by the blind men of “letters” an immoral woman for her ability to overpowering the Five spiritual temptations of the heart. Such corrupt Bishops and Popes went for the atrocities of Mammon rather than the service of God and created great havoc in society worse than that created by the Temple Priests, the brood of vipers. St.Paul’s Cathedral in London is a good example of such Christianity of Mammon worshippers. In a nutshell, Jesus came to do the Will of our Father, Insh Allah and not his own, Insh Jesus but the Popes started to do their own wills through “edicts”, Insh Popes and instead of serving people they became their cruel Lords in the name of our Elder Brother Christ Jesus. Today, the people carry Holy Books like the super donkeys and when they are asked simple questions, they are unable to answer. Spiritual Principles, the Word, Logo, is discussed in the light of logical reasoning such as if God is Spirit, then how could He create Adam and Eve or the beautiful women as rewards for those who die during the Jihad or Insh Mullahs? In the Islam of Allah, it is INSHALLAH that dominates and not Insh Popes, Mullahs, Akal Takht Jathedars, etc., the sons of Satan. This is the Age of Islam, HUKUM RAZIAN CHALNA, and so every one of us has to give his own account to God or Allah (Al-ilah, the Father). Any one who imposes his own will (edict or Fatwa) or pretends to be an agent or guide of God such as the dog-collared priest, KUSANT, etc is an anti Christ. God being Spirit, only the sensible people of spirit enjoy the freedom and the Gospel of God. Thus, in God we have the preachers, the Sowers of His Word and not the moral teachers drunk with the “old wine” of the “letters”. Scriptures + holy spirit (common sense) = Gospel For greater details and FREE lectures, visit my web site:- For greater details and FREE lectures, visit my web site:- Ask Seek Knock Chaudhry Rajinder Nijjhar, M.Sc. Retired Lecturer in Metallurgy Sahejdhari Sikh/Mussallmaan Pir Nanak Shah To know Satguru Nanak Dev Ji know Christ Jesus To know Christ Jesus know Prophet Elijah John In whose name. John baptised men in water? No son of Man, no son of God. Logically Gospel is as simple as ABC. HOLY SPIRIT, "common sense", SHATTERS THE FETTERS OF THE LETTERS/BOOKS. GOD IS LOVE AND SERVICE WHILST SATAN IS HATRED, KILLING AND BURNING. THIS IS THE AGE OF NOT “SINNERS” BUT OF THE HYPOCRITES, THE LIARS AND THE BLASPHEMERS. FIRST KNOW WHAT YOU “SEE” AND THEN WHAT IS NOT SEEN WOULD BE REVEALED TO YOU. SO, UNLESS A FEMALE BECOMES A “MALE”, SHE CANNOT ENTER INTO THE ROYAL KINGDOM OF GOD. IN JESUS, WE ARE “FISHERS” OF MEN CAPABLE OF RENEWING OUR “INNERMAN”, THE CHRIST. “HOLY SPIRIT” (COMMON SENSE) SHATTERS THE FETTERS OF THE “LETTERS” (HOLY BOOKS) THERE SHALL BE ANOTHER WAR LIKE IRAQ IN 2007 ON A COUNTRY MAKING ATOMIC BOMBS; THEN THE ATOMIC WAR ON 21 DECEMBER, 2012.
