Mr. Knut Nygaard Writes a Letter to Help Bodnariu

bodnariu-familyIf you spend any time on Delight in Truth, you know Mr Knut Nygaard. He is an employee of Barnevernet in the larger city of Bergen, Norway, and he has been defending the CPS as a whole. Having said that, Mr Nygaard has had reservations about the way the Bodnariu case has been handled in the small municipality of Naustdal.

Today he wrote a letter to the CPS leader in Nausdtal (here) and followed up with this comment to DiT:“… it may give me an earlier retirement. If the CPS in Naustdal makes a complaint to my employer accusing me of interference in their ongoing work I think I’m off duty in the near future.”

Here are some excerpts from the letter (google translate from Norwegian – the meaning of the message is preserved despite the rough translation) :

“It is reasonably painful that the Municipal Councilman in Naustdal is willing to go down with the municipal flag to prevent these four [older Bodnariu kids] to get the opportunity to return to their own [family]. Probably it is uncertain what will happen with Ezekiel.

It is not in the child welfare social task to destroy an ordinary family of 7.

I’m in the final stretch of my working career and much of it has been happening and will still take place in the municipal child welfare. The last 23 years I have worked in one of the now 8 CPS areas in Bergen. My main responsibilities are receiving, investigations and measures.

At our office, we received 475 messages in 2014 – higher likelyhood of acute evaluations. In Naustdal they received a total of 27 messages and something tells me that it can be very far between emergency assessments.

If it is true that this [Bodnariu] family has never had contact with Barnevernet before and theme is spanking, then we have at our office handled approximately 100 such cases only one of which led to the use of 4.6, 2nd paragraph, and there was marked violence – like using a belt and water immersion.

Classical Pentecostalism in the Old Days in Norway

Nor2Today, May 15th, 2016, millions of Christians across the globe celebrate the Day of Pentecost, the day on which the Holy Spirit descended upon the apostles and the church was born. The believers at that time were characterized by a powerful and passionate proclamation of the truth which has lasted over centuries.

Here is an opinion expressed by a long time Norwegian commenter on “Delight in truth”, regarding a church service recorded in 1983 in Olso on video below:

“In my youth – as not yet a Christian – I was inside a meeting led by Åge Samuelsen thatNor6 led Maranata – he came from the Pentecostal church – this was special and for a not yet born again – somewhat too happy and out of order – 1983 seems like a long time ago taken from this surroundings”.

Today, there are people in our local congregations that still show this consistent enthusiasm, and it is of inestimable value.
