Upper Hutt Leader : June 22nd 2011
8 UPPER HUTT LEADER, JUNE 22, 2011 NEWS Truth For Our Times Part One Hundred & Twenty Eight To be continued, A. Carter Our first parents sent out of Eden. And God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever; therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and He placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cheraubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. At death we return to dust. That God had made Adam from the dust; that it was the air of Eden with which God inflated his lungs, causing him to become a living soul, or breathing creature; that God commanded Adam to eat of all the fruits of the garden including the tree of life, prohibiting only the fruit of the one tree.And that it was the devil, and not God, who said that the human soul would not or could not die, as the result of sin; but that God, said to the soul He had made, "Thou shalt surely die". Six thousand years of history prove that God was right, and that the devil was wrong.When God pronounced sentence on Adam, he said nothing about a never dying soul or a pit of fiery torments, eternal in duration. He simply said, "In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return to the ground; for out of it wast thou taken; for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return". In death there is no remembrance of thee, as the Psalmist said, "... In the grave who shall give thee thanks", Psalm 6:5. And in Ecclesiates 9;10 it says "Whatever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might, for there is no work, nor device, nor wisdom, nor knowledge in the grave whither thou goest". So we would know that we would go back into the dust of the earth when we die, and where nothing is known. But what of the future. Nearly two thousand years ago, a remarkable man walked in Judaea and Galilee, who said to those who would hear, "I am come that they might have life, and that they may have it more abundantly", John 10:10. He lived entirely apart from sin, and he was not under the common condemnation inherited from Adam. Jesus was the Son of God, who had greatly humbled himself to become a man.What remedy had he to offer. How did he propose to set aside the condemnation of the human race. God knew from the beginning that He would eventually send His Son to be a ransom sacrifice for the human race and this is why, when Adam sinned and brought death upon the whole human race, He gave a glimmer of hope when He pronounced the death penalty. 3578591AH Upper Hutt Parents Centre Baby and Toddler CPR Tuesday 2nd August 7:30pm---9:30pm Learn valuable skills that could save a life!

HELP IS AVAILABLE now through CELLFIELD Police aiming at the roots By KAROLINE TUCKEY Upper Hutt police are declaring a crack down on several groups of thieves and drug dealers operat- ing in the city. Police Inspector Mike Hill said police are aware of a recent increase in activity by several organised criminal groups operat- ing across both Upper and Lower Hutt, and will be targeting their activities. The groups were not gangs, but had connections to them, he said. We are sending a very clear message to those people that police and communities across the Hutt Valley take a zero tolerance to this type of anti-social behav- iour and they will be caught,'' Mr Hill said. So if you are a drug dealer and a smoker, we are suggesting you give up one of them, because from the first of July you won't be able to smoke in prison.'' Police were particularly con- cerned with combating drug deal- ing and drug use as it encouraged wider crime, he said. Usually offenders steal prop- erty and cash and commit other offences to fuel drug habits. But there's a myth about social drug dealers and social drug deal- ing -- it's anti-social to supply drugs and to sell to people, par- ticularly with young people,'' he said. One man has already been arrested in Upper Hutt and charged with receiving stolen goods after a search warrant was executed by armed police on June 9 in connection with the crack down on the groups. Two other men were also arrested after connected searches at two Lower Hutt addresses on the same day, and face charges of drug dealing, as well as further investigations into illegal activity uncovered in the raids. While Mr Hill said the problem with drug dealing or crime in the area was not disproportionately large, and overall crime statistics were dropping, police were not willing to accept any offending of this nature. For a number of years we've been reasonably successful at get- ting some reasonably sophisti- cated indoor cannabis growing operations, and meth and P are readily available, and that's what we are looking for, he said. We are not going to take it here.'' Golfing arrangement is to be secured for trail users An agreement between the Royal Wellington Golf Club and the regional council has guaranteed public access along the Hutt River Trail alongside the golf course, says Upper Hutt regional council- lor Paul Swain. The agreement was launched at a function at the club last week. Most people who walk, run or bike along the trail probably don't know that the access along the route near the golf course has been an informal arrangement because the land actually belongs to the golf club,'' Mr Swain says. The new agreement allows for an easement to be granted so that public access is legal and guaranteed.'' He says the regional council has agreed to part-fund a new fence on the easement boundary and to undertake native planting on both sides of the fence. We will be arranging a plant- ing day in the near future in con- junction with the club, the Rotary clubs of the Hutt Valley and the public,'' Mr Swain says. One outstanding issue that has been brought to my attention is the need for better access to the trail from Kiwi St and Heretaunga Park. Mayor Wayne Guppy and I hope to meet the various parties involved shortly to see if we can sort this out before the upgrade works are completed.'' Mobile library bus off the road Upper Hutt's mobile library bus is in the middle of a three-month makeover. The prominent full-size bus, seen around the city at all times of the day, has been off the road for several weeks as it undergoes a complete overhaul. During this time, the mobile library services are being covered by a van which is providing bulk loans to regular mobile ser- vice customers. The mobile service caters for those in the community who are unable to visit either the central library or the Pinehaven branch. In the year to April, the service had more than 17,800 visitors and issued 27,325 books. Rates tune up The formal and final figure for the rise in Upper Hutt's residential rates will be confirmed this afternoon. An extraordinary meeting of the Upper Hutt City Council will officially strike'' the rates, with an expected 4.63 per cent increase following the deliberations on the annual plan in recent weeks. That figure was more than a first forecast 1.2 per cent because of the city facing a quadrupling of insurance premiums on its infrastructure -- largely a consequence of the Christchurch earthquakes. At the annual plan hearing, councillors received an indication from the corporate services director Ian John- son the final rates rise, because of late information and changes on the insurance costs, may be further fine- tuned today.
