Kim Kardashian toasts to '20 seasons of craziness' as she and the crew of KUWTK wrap final shoot
show ad Kim Kardashian toasts to '20 seasons of craziness' as she and the crew of KUWTK raise a glass after filming the final episode... amid divorce reports By Glenn Garner For Dailymail.com Published: 00:59 EST, 9 January 2021 | Updated: 01:38 EST, 9 January 2021 Kim Kardashian is currently closing the book on a couple of huge chapters in her life. The reality TV star is reportedly preparing to divorce Kanye West, while bidding farewell to her star-making show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. She shared a drink with the KUWTK crew Friday, as they raised a glass after filming the final episode of their E! show's 20-season run, which premiered back in 2007. Raise a glass: Kim Kardashian shared a drink with the KUWTK crew Friday, as they raised a glass after filming the final episode of their E! show's 20-season run, which premiered back in 2007 The 40-year-old appeared in a video on the show's Instagram , captioned: '20 Seasons. 14 years. Bible, we can't believe today is the last day of filming for #KUWTK. Final season coming soon to E!' She sat in her backyard with a plastic cup of champagne in her hand, addressing her fans: 'Hey guys, we just finished filming forever... like forever, ever. We're done. We're never filming again. Is that so crazy? 'So, we're having a drink with the crew in my backyard, hanging out. Cheers to... I don't know, 15 years, 20 seasons of craziness and lots of love.' Kim has been documenting the final day of filming on Instagram, beginning with her 'last Keeping Up with the Kardashians mic-ing of life.' She also showed off some cute place settings at their last lunch, each family member's plate featuring a cookie decorated with their face. Their friend Christina Milian's food truck Beignet Box also paid a visit, providing some powdered sugar-coated treats for the farewell. 'It's a wrap! Not on the tears or the drinks tho,' she wrote with a photo of the party's liquor selection, adding: 'Officially sobbing. Grateful for every single second.' It comes amid reports that she and husband Kanye West, 43, are getting a divorce after six years of marriage. A source told Us Weekly that Kanye is jealous of the time she's spending with their four children: 'Kanye is jealous of the amount of time Kim has dedicated to prison reform and the kids. Kanye wanted the family to move to Wyoming full-time. 'It's where he sees this direction of his life going. Kim just doesn't see their lives full-time in Wyoming.' They also said that although the couple has been working on their marriage in counseling, they 'haven't had a joint session together in a while.' 'Kim has continued to meet with their marriage counselor in solo sessions. Kim's singular focus is about how this will impact the kids, and Kanye has been receptive to engaging in those discussions.' Multiple outlets have reported that Kim is working with divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, who handled her divorce with Kris Humphries, 35, in 2011, after 72 days of marriage. Meanwhile, Page Six reported that Kanye's failed presidential run was 'the final straw' for Kim, amid their struggle to make the marriage work. A source said that the SKIMS mogul 'needed to end the marriage for the sake of her kids and her own sanity.' Things seemingly came to a head in July, when Kanye revealed that they almost had an abortion when she was pregnant with North, ultimately sparking rumors of a divorce. Kim and Kanye tied the knot in Florence, Italy back in May of 2014, and they share daughters North, Chicago, two, sons Saint, five, and Psalm, one.

Joe Biden Sworn In As 46th President Of The United States
by Chris York
Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president on Wednesday, bringing to an end one of the most unorthodox, turbulent presidencies in US history.Supreme Court chief justice John Roberts led Biden in the oath of office, using a Bible that has been in the president's family since 1893.His son Beau Biden used the same Bible when he was sworn in as Delaware attorney general in 2007.Minutes earlier, Kamala Harris had been sworn in as vice president by Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina member of the court. Harris used a Bible that once belonged to Thurgood Marshall, the first Black Supreme Court justice.Harris' vice presidency is historic in several regards: She's the first female, Black and South Asian person to hold the position.Donald Trump departed the White House shortly after 8am on Wednesday for Joint Andrews Base in Maryland, where he delivered brief unscripted remarks."Have a good life," Trump said during the final moments of his farewell. "We will see you soon."Trump is the first president in 152 years to skip his successor's inauguration. He still has not formally conceded the election, nor has he reached out to Biden to congratulate him on his victory.Trump did, however, leave a letter for Biden in the White House, continuing a long-standing tradition between outgoing and incoming presidents.Related...

Read Joe Biden's Inauguration Speech In Full
by Graeme Demianyk
Joe Biden was sworn in as US president on Wednesday, assuming the helm of a country reeling from deep political divides, a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.He vowed to end the "uncivil war" that has marked Donald Trump's presidency and noted that "democracy has prevailed" after taking the oath of office. Here's Biden's inauguration speech in full:Chief Justice Roberts, Vice-President Harris, Speaker Pelosi, Leader Schumer, Leader McConnell, Vice-President Pence. My distinguished guests, my fellow Americans.This is America's day. This is democracy's day. A day of history and hope, of renewal and resolve. Through a crucible for the ages, America has been tested anew and America has risen to the challenge. Today we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate but of a cause, a cause of democracy. The people – the will of the people – has been heard, and the will of the people has been heeded.We've learned again that democracy is precious, democracy is fragile and, at this hour my friends, democracy has prevailed. So now on this hallowed ground where just a few days ago violence sought to shake the Capitol's very foundations, we come together as one nation under God – indivisible – to carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries.As we look ahead in our uniquely American way, restless, bold, optimistic, and set our sights on a nation we know we can be and must be, I thank my predecessors of both parties. I thank them from the bottom of my heart. And I know the resilience of our Constitution and the strength, the strength of our nation, as does President Carter, who I spoke with last night who cannot be with us today, but who we salute for his lifetime of service.I've just taken a sacred oath each of those patriots have taken. The oath first sworn by George Washington. But the American story depends not on any one of us, not on some of us, but on all of us. On we the people who seek a more perfect union. This is a great nation, we are good people. And over the centuries through storm and strife in peace and in war we've come so far. But we still have far to go.We'll press forward with speed and urgency for we have much to do in this winter of peril and significant possibility. Much to repair, much to restore, much to heal, much to build and much to gain. Few people in our nation's history have been more challenged or found a time more challenging or difficult than the time we're in now. A once in a century virus that silently stalks the country has taken as many lives in one year as America lost in all of World War Two.Millions of jobs have been lost. Hundreds of thousands of businesses closed. A cry for racial justice, some 400 years in the making, moves us. The dream of justice for all will be deferred no longer. A cry for survival comes from the planet itself, a cry that can't be any more desperate or any more clear now. The rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism, that we must confront and we will defeat.To overcome these challenges, to restore the soul and secure the future of America, requires so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy – unity. Unity. In another January on New Year's Day in 1863 Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation. When he put pen to paper the president said, and I quote, "if my name ever goes down in history, it'll be for this act, and my whole soul is in it".My whole soul is in it today, on this January day. My whole soul is in this. Bringing America together, uniting our people, uniting our nation. And I ask every American to join me in this cause. Uniting to fight the foes we face – anger, resentment and hatred. Extremism, lawlessness, violence, disease, joblessness, and hopelessness.With unity we can do great things, important things. We can right wrongs, we can put people to work in good jobs, we can teach our children in safe schools. We can overcome the deadly virus, we can reward work, we can rebuild the middle class and make work secure, we can deliver racial justice and we can make America once again the leading force for good in the world.I know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. I know the forces that divide us are deep and they are real. But I also know they are not new. Our history has been a constant struggle between the American ideal, that we are all created equal, and the harsh ugly reality that racism, nativism, fear, demonisation have long torn us apart. The battle is perennial and victory is never secure.Through civil war, the Great Depression, World War, 9/11, through struggle, sacrifice, and setback, our better angels have always prevailed. In each of our moments enough of us – enough of us – have come together to carry all of us forward and we can do that now. History, faith and reason show the way. The way of unity.We can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbours. We can treat each other with dignity and respect. We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury, no progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos. This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge. And unity is the path forward. And we must meet this moment as the United States of America.If we do that, I guarantee we will not fail. We have never, ever, ever, ever failed in America when we've acted together. And so today at this time, in this place, let's start afresh, all of us. Let's begin to listen to one another again, hear one another, see one another. Show respect to one another. Politics doesn't have to be a raging fire destroying everything in its path. Every disagreement doesn't have to be a cause for total war and we must reject the culture in which facts themselves are manipulated and even manufactured. My fellow Americans, we have to be different than this. America has to be better than this and I believe America is so much better than this. Just look around. Here we stand in the shadow of the Capitol dome. As was mentioned earlier, completed amid the Civil War. When the union itself was literally hanging in the balance. Yet we endure, we prevail. Here we stand, looking out on the great Mall, where Dr King spoke of his dream.Here we stand, where 108 years ago at another inaugural, thousands of protesters tried to block brave women marching for the right to vote. And today we mark the swearing in of the first woman in history elected to national office, vice president Kamala Harris. Don't tell me things can change. Here we stand where heroes who gave the last full measure of devotion rest in eternal peace.And here we stand, across the Potomac from Arlington Cemetery, where heroes who gave the last full measure of devotion rest in eternal peace. And here we stand just days after a riotous mob thought they could use violence to silence the will of the people, to stop the work of our democracy, to drive us from this sacred ground. It did not happen, it will never happen, not today, not tomorrow, not ever. Not ever. To all those who supported our campaign, I'm humbled by the faith you placed in us. To all those who did not support us, let me say this. Hear me out as we move forward. Take a measure of me and my heart.If you still disagree, so be it. That's democracy. That's America. The right to dissent peaceably within the guardrails of our democracy is perhaps our nation's greatest strength. If you hear me clearly, disagreement must not lead to disunion. And I pledge this to you. I will be a president for all Americans, all Americans. And I promise you I will fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did.Many centuries ago, St Augustine – the saint of my church – wrote that a people was a multitude defined by the common objects of their love. Defined by the common objects of their love. What are the common objects we as Americans love, that define us as Americans? I think we know. Opportunity, security, liberty, dignity, respect, honour, and, yes, the truth.Recent weeks and months have taught us a painful lesson. There is truth and there are lies. Lies told for power and for profit. And each of us has a duty and a responsibility as citizens as Americans and especially as leaders. Leaders who are pledged to honour our Constitution and protect our nation. To defend the truth and defeat the lies.Look, I understand that many of my fellow Americans view the future with fear and trepidation. I understand they worry about their jobs. I understand like my dad, they lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling wondering: 'Can I keep my healthcare? Can I pay my mortgage?' Thinking about their families, about what comes next. I promise you, I get it. But the answer's not to turn inward. To retreat into competing factions. Distrusting those who don't look like you, or worship the way you do, who don't get their news from the same source as you do.We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts, if we show a little tolerance and humility, and if we're willing to stand in the other person's shoes, as my mom would say. Just for a moment, stand in their shoes.Because here's the thing about life. There's no accounting for what fate will deal you. Some days you need a hand. There are other days when we're called to lend a hand. That's how it has to be, that's what we do for one another. And if we are this way our country will be stronger, more prosperous, more ready for the future. And we can still disagree.My fellow Americans, in the work ahead of us we're going to need each other. We need all our strength to persevere through this dark winter. We're entering what may be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus. We must set aside politics and finally face this pandemic as one nation, one nation. And I promise you this, as the Bible says, 'Weeping may endure for a night, joy cometh in the morning'. We will get through this together. Together.Look folks, all my colleagues I serve with in the House and the Senate up here, we all understand the world is watching. Watching all of us today. So here's my message to those beyond our borders. America has been tested and we've come out stronger for it. We will repair our alliances, and engage with the world once again. Not to meet yesterday's challenges but today's and tomorrow's challenges. And we'll lead not merely by the example of our power but the power of our example.It will be a strong and trusted partner for peace, progress, and security. Look, you all know we've been through so much in this nation. And my first act as president, I'd like to ask you to join me in a moment of silent prayer to remember all those who we lost this past year to the pandemic, those 400,000 fellow Americans: moms, dads, husbands, wives, sons, daughters, friends, neighbours, and coworkers. We'll honour them by becoming the people and the nation we know we can and should be. So I ask you, let's say a silent prayer for those who've lost their lives and those left behind and for our country.Amen.Folks, it's a time of testing. We face an attack on our democracy, and on truth, a raging virus, growing inequity, a sting systemic racism, a climate in crisis, America's role in the world. Any one of these would be enough to challenge us in profound ways. But the fact is we face them all at once, presenting this nation with one of the gravest responsibilities we've had. Now we're going to be tested. Are we going to step up? All of us?It's time for boldness, for there is so much to do. And this is certain, I promise you. We will be judged, you and I, by how we resolve these cascading crises of our era. We will rise to the occasion, is the question. Will we master this rare and difficult hour? Will we meet our obligations and pass along a new and better world to our children? I believe we must and I'm sure you do as well. I believe we will, and when we do, we'll write the next great chapter in the history of the United States of America. The American story.A story that might sound something like a song that means a lot to me, it's called American Anthem. And there's one verse that stands out at least for me and it goes like this:'The work and prayers of centuries have brought us to this day, which shall be our legacy, what will our children say?'Let me know in my heart when my days are through, America, America, I gave my best to you.′Let's us add our own work and prayers to the unfolding story of our great nation. If we do this, then when our days are through, our children and our children's children will say of us: 'They gave their best, they did their duty, they healed a broken land.'My fellow Americans I close the day where I began, with a sacred oath. Before God and all of you, I give you my word. I will always level with you. I will defend the Constitution, I'll defend our democracy.I'll defend America and I will give all – all of you – keep everything I do in your service. Thinking not of power but of possibilities. Not of personal interest but of public good.And together we will write an American story of hope, not fear. Of unity not division, of light not darkness. A story of decency and dignity, love and healing, greatness and goodness. May this be the story that guides us. The story that inspires us. And the story that tells ages yet to come that we answered the call of history, we met the moment. Democracy and hope, truth and justice, did not die on our watch but thrive.That America secured liberty at home and stood once again as a beacon to the world. That is what we owe our forbearers, one another, and generations to follow.So with purpose and resolve, we turn to those tasks of our time. Sustained by faith, driven by conviction and devoted to one another and the country we love with all our hearts. May God bless America and may God protect our troops.Thank you, America.Related...

Marco Rubio Shredded On Twitter For Bashing Fauci — After Getting Covid-19 Vaccine
by Mary Papenfuss
Critics didn't miss the hypocrisy as US senator Marco Rubio attacked infectious disease expert Dr Anthony Fauci and the science of Covid-19 on Sunday, a week after the senator got a vaccine to protect himself against the coronavirus.Rubio, who has often downplayed the threat of Covid-19 and has blown off wearing a mask at large gatherings even as cases were spiking, hasn't criticised disinformation about Covid-19 from President Donald Trump. Yet he slammed Fauci's advice, saying in a tweet that the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases "lied about masks in March" and "has been distorting the level of vaccination needed for herd immunity".Fauci initially downplayed the importance of the American public wearing face coverings, and said he was concerned at the start of the pandemic that a mask shortage would put health care workers at risk. But for several months, he has strongly and repeatedly advised that everyone wear a mask.Health experts have said until recently that up to 70% of the population would need to get the vaccine to reach herd immunity. Fauci has increased that in the past week to between 70% and 85%, based on updated estimates.Dr. Fauci lied about masks in March Dr. Fauci has been distorting the level of vaccination needed for herd immunityIt isn't just himMany in elite bubbles believe the American public doesn't know "what's good for them" so they need to be tricked into "doing the right thing"— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) December 27, 2020Rubio became one of the first Americans to receive a vaccine against Covid-19, getting a shot ahead of many elderly Americans, first responders and health care workers who have a far greater risk of contracting the disease.

The Pembrokeshire Murders: Everything You Need To Know About The Case Of John Cooper 'The Bullseye Killer'
by Ash Percival
Following the success of 2020′s White House Farm, Des and Honour, ITV is continuing its run of true-life crime dramas into the new year with The Pembrokeshire Murders.The three-part series is set to air across consecutive nights from Monday, recounting one of Wales' most notorious murder investigations. Here's what you need to know.It is based on the real-life murders of serial killer John CooperThe Pembrokeshire Murders recounts the cold case investigation Operation Ottawa, which was reopened in 2006 and looked into two double murders that took place in the Welsh county during the 1980s. In 1985, local residents, brother and sister Richard and Helen Thomas, were shot dead, while four years later two tourists, husband and wife, Peter and Gwenda Dixon were also murdered by shotgun. Both crimes were investigated at the time, but no-one was ever charged.Sixteen years later, DCI Steve Wilkins returned to Wales after a stint at Scotland Yard, and following a promotion, he decided to form a team to reopen the case, believing the two double murders were linked. He had a suspect – a man called John Cooper, who at that point in time, was serving time in prison for burglary – but had to be able to prove it. The team were on a race against time to find evidence that proved Cooper's guilt before he came up for parole.He was released from prison in 2008 – two years into their investigation, which took so long because of the painstaking work required to go through over 3,000 exhibits from the crime scene and the wait for forensic analysis results. Following his release, Cooper was brought in for questioning, and after a second meeting with DCI Wilkins, police finally had enough evidence to charge him in 2009. After a trial in 2011, Cooper was sentenced to life imprisonment for the two double murders, as well as an attack on five children in Milford Haven in 1996. The series draws heavily on the book The Pembrokeshire Murders – Catching The Bullseye KillerThis book was co-written by DCI Steve Wilkins, who cracked the case, and ITV journalist Jonathan Hill, which writer Nick Stevens described as being his "bible" while writing the series. Hill is actually a key part of the story, as he developed an important relationship with DCI Wilkins during the investigation. He originally approached him about featuring the double murders on an episode of Welsh documentary series Crime Secrets, but unbeknown to Hill, DCI Wilkins was in the process of reopening the case and wanted to keep it covert. The pair then struck a deal whereby Hill agreed to postpone his film and Wilkins would give him the inside story on the case when the time was right. It was an arrangement that benefitted them both, as Wilkins was eventually able to use Hill's exclusive ITV News report to send a message to Cooper in prison, as they knew the inmates were watching. Hill says: "It was slightly stage-managed that we revealed that the cases were being investigated. They wanted to see what Cooper's reaction would be. It was very much a coded message directly to the killer, who they believed was Cooper."The journalist stayed in close contact with Wilkins over the course of the five-year investigation, even providing a key piece of evidence. When the police researched Cooper's background, they knew he had been a contestant on TV gameshow Bullseye, but did not know when. Hill asked an ITV archivist to trawl through all the episodes until eventually they found Cooper's appearance, which was filmed four weeks before he murdered the Dixons in 1989. Wilkins explains: "I didn't have was a good photo of John Cooper at around the time of the Dixons murder to compare with an artists impression of the possible offender. I needed to know what Cooper looked like at that time. "He sent it to me and I remember just looking at it and I can honestly say in my 33 years in the police when I've seen hundreds and hundred of artists' impressions. As a likeness, I've never seen one as close as this. It was one of those jaw dropping moments - I thought, 'that's him!'" Following Cooper's conviction, Wilkins and Hill teamed up to publish an in-depth account of the investigation, which was published in 2013. The series is actually six years in the making Hill reveals that he had been trying for six years to get the case turned into a drama, before writer Nick Stevens approached him with an idea. "We worked together and we approached World Productions who immediately thought it was a great story," he explains. "I was always convinced it was such a good story it was just finding the right moment really."They worked with Cooper's real-life son on the storyDuring his original police interviews, Cooper had repeatedly implied that his son Adrian was responsible for the four murders – something that disgusted DCI Wilkins at the time and is detailed in the book. Sharing the officer's disgust, writer Stevens says he was "determined" to give Adrian a voice in the series, and enlisted Hill to track him down so they could speak to him. Now going by the name Andrew, Cooper's son "quietly, frankly and without self-pity" told Stevens how it had been for him growing up as the abused son of a serial killer. "He also breathed life into the tragic figure of his mother, Pat, who, in another extraordinary twist, had died of a heart attack on Cooper's first night of freedom after his release from prison in Christmas 2008," Stevens says. "Thanks to Andrew's openness and generosity, the drama I was writing now had a poignant, deeply personal storyline which would run in parallel with the police procedural." While the families of Cooper's victims did not object to the new drama, Stevens explains that they had no wish to be featured in it, and tells of how he had to find another way of dramatising the positive impact the trial and verdict had. Operation Ottawa had investigated a third crime which Cooper had committed: the Milford Haven Attack of 1996, which saw Cooper rob five teenagers at gunpoint. He sexually assaulted one of the three girls and raped another, and the two later gave evidence in court during Cooper's trial. "Every police officer and lawyer I interviewed confirmed that the testimonies of the two women had a decisive impact on the outcome of the trial," Stevens explains. "Furthermore, Steve confirmed that the impact of the eventual guilty verdict on the two women and their families was life-changing. "Here was the redemption I'd been looking for. And I will always be grateful to these two brave women for allowing us to dramatise their time in court. For me, their scenes are so true and moving that they become a tribute to all the victims and their families – and a powerful condemnation of the man responsible for so much wasted life and suffering."Luke Evans and Keith Allen take the lead as DCI Wilkins and John Cooper Hollywood star Luke Evans returned home to Wales to take on the role of DCI Steve Wilkins in The Pembrokeshire Murders. "It's actually my first time working on a project in Wales so for me it's very poignant, and also that it is a Welsh story," he says. "I got to visit some incredibly beautiful parts of Wales as well which was special. It was a joy to come to set and listen to all these beautiful Welsh accents every day. I've missed it very much." He got to meet his real-life counterpart during the making of the show, and described their meeting as a "privilege". "He's a man of honour and integrity," Luke says. "Steve had an incredibly interesting career and was involved in some very interesting and serious crimes throughout his career. I just like the guy, he's got an energy. There's a fire inside Steve Wilkins."Keith Allen takes on the role of serial killer John Cooper, with executive producer Simon Heath describing his performance as "incredibly chilling". "Beneath this initially affable mask [Cooper] puts on for the police is this dark, menacing quality," he says. "And though we don't see the crimes he committed, we hear about them and they are ugly and nasty and violent. "One of the interesting things about Cooper is that by the time he was brought to court, he was at an age where he was able to play the role of the 'grandad' who had been wrongly dealt with by the police. It's that mixture of the elderly gentlemen who wouldn't harm anybody and this powerful underlying menace."Also among the cast are David Fynn (Vanity Fair) as journalist Jonathan Hill, Oliver Ryan (The Accident) as Cooper's son Andrew, Alexandria Riley (The End Of The Fucking World) as DI Ella Richards, Steven Meo (High Hopes) as DI Lynne Harries and Charles Dale (Casualty) as DS Gareth Rees. The Pembrokeshire Murders begins on Monday night at 9pm on ITV, airing over three consecutive nights.READ MORE: 21 Things To Look Forward To In The World Of Entertainment In 2021 What's New On Netflix UK In January 2021?

RE:How do I convince my kids that the vacation bible school camp they are attending this summer is actually space camp?
by King Cheat-oo
First you need to bear some kind of false witness
How do I convince my kids that the vacation bible school camp they are attending this summer is actually space camp?
We live in a small town in rural ohio and there are limited options for summer camps. They don't like church, and the love outer space and the idea of space camps, but there are none available near me at all. I want to try to make it more fun for them and pretend that it is a space camp. I have purchased them nasa outfits, and a box of space ice cream that I will send them off with. I have also told them that the camp is top secret, so no one will mention space or nasa directly, not even the other kids. I also told them that the stories and activities are coded and they will have to figure out themselves how they relate to space. Is there anything else I should be doing? I just want to make this fun for them because we have very limited options for child care this summer. This is all assuming that covid is under control this summer, so don't worry about that.
RE:Christians why is your so called all knowing God/Jesus never address the consciousness or psyche of human beings?
by Christian Sinner
You don't know what you are talking about. Read the Bible someday.
RE:Did slave owners really think they were good people?
Yes. Christianity promoted slavery because it is in the Bible so it's OK because God said it's OK to have slaves in the Bible.
RE:Did slave owners really think they were good people?
They went to church every Sunday. The Christian bible condones slavery. It instructs people which people they can enslave and how their slaves should be treated.
RE:When we meet friends and relatives in heaven, are we able to talk with them? Are we able to touch and hug them?
According to the Bible, no.
RE:According to Christianity, after death we are conscious, can feel pain/pleasure and retain our memories from our life on earth, correct?
The truth is that death leads to heaven or hell, and the only way to heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ.The Bible is very clear that no one can earn their way to heaven since good works do not pay for sins. See Gal. 2:16, Rom. 3:23-28, 4:4-5, Eph. 2:8-9, Tit. 3:5. The only way to heaven is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of eternal life. Jesus shed His blood on the cross as the full payment for our sins. He did all the work; all He requires of us is that we believe in Him. Once you believe in Jesus Christ to save you, you are secure forever!Because we have all sinned against a perfectly holy and righteous God, we all deserve eternal separation from God in hell (Rom. 6:23). However, God loves us so much that He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross as our Substitute so we don't have to go to hell. Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose from the grave three days later (1 Cor. 15:3-4). He gives eternal life freely to anyone who simply believes in Him for it. No one can be saved by doing good works. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Eph. 2:8-9)."Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life" (John 6:47).
RE:According to Christianity, after death we are conscious, can feel pain/pleasure and retain our memories from our life on earth, correct?
by Ogres are like Onions
After death is one thing, after the resurrection is another.The bodies of men, after death, return to dust, and see corruption, but their souls, which neither die nor sleep, having an immortal subsistence, immediately return to God.At the last day, the Day of Judgment, Resurrection: those still alive shall not die, but be changed, and all the dead will be raised up, with the self-same bodies, and none other (although with different qualities), which will be united again to their souls for ever.The Bible doesn't speak on the subject of our memories, so I won't either.Update: this text is almost verbatim from the Westminster Confession of Faith, the foundational doctrinal statement of the Protestant Church. If you are Protestant, this is what you should have learned.Source(s): (1) Ge 3:19; Ac 13:36; Lk 23:43; Ecc 12:7; Heb 12:23; 2Co 5:1,6,8; Php 1:23 with Ac 3:21; Eph 4:10; Lk 16:23,24; Ac 1:25; Jude 6,7; 1Pe 3:19(2) 1Th 4:17; 1Co 15:51,52; Job 19:26,27; 1Co 15:42-44

According to the Bible, that is incorrect.
