"The reward of being 'faithful over a few things' is just the same as being 'faithful over many things' ; for the emphasis falls upon the same word; it is the 'faithful' who will enter 'into the joy of their Lord.'"- Charles S. Robinson
I suspect that most of the individuals who have religious faith are content with blind faith. They feel no obligation to understand what they believe. They may even wish not to have their beliefs disturbed by thought. But if God in whom they believe created them with intellectual and rational powers, that imposes upon them the duty to try to understand the creed of their religion. Not to do so is to verge on superstition. - Mortimer J. Adler

I AmI am an artist,I Am by Takethra
But my handiwork is trampled on.
I am a mother,
But my sons vanished with the dawn.
I am a father,
And my daughters go ripped
Naked in the streets.
I am a father.
I am the mourner of the World,
I am the World’s most abhorred.
I am the weeper of the rain,
Though renewal rises like a rainbow,
Always to follow,
After thousands of years, always to follow.
My smiling face over all penitent,
Though I am returned always with betrayal.
My mercy is raped.
All my friends faithless.
Those taken into the chambers of my soul,
They violate my heart.
I am the one who returns from war,
Only to find his lover lying with another.
I am the one whose children slay themselves at her breast,
I am the one whose brothers always turn their backs,
I am the one whose sons thrust their brother off a bridge,
I am the one whose daughters speak their sister into suicide.
He hanged himself, he who kissed me in deceit.
And I saw my own children incinerate
From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ"We gays can't help that we're born as we are" I’ve heard it said. We humans can't help that we're born into a fallen world any more that we can help the bullying environment of sin that’s forced onto us. Sin is like a spiritual cancer; that if not dealt with in time, will kill us. Yet in the same instance it’s so pleasing to indulge we don’t even know we’re dying.From A Closet of Sin to Hope In Christ by The1Enchantress
All sin, no matter the form it's in, is addictive, and if we choose to submit to it, it becomes our addiction. And often we find ourselves submitting to it; sometimes purposefully, sometimes without even realizing it till it’s too late.
I will gladly admit that I'm addicted to it just as everyone else is, because I’m human. But because I’m human, because I’m made in the image of Christ, I don’t want to be addicted to sin. I want freedom; I want Christ.
That said, there is a contrast between the LORD’s followers and the followers of the world. The Christian's g
Wings Like Eagles It’s bedtime as I open a small velvet box. Inside lies a single white feather, perfect and fragile, so clean that it seems to glow with its whiteness. As I hold the feather in my hand, it seems like it was only moments ago that it all happened. There are those out there who won’t believe what I have to say, but I know what I lived, and I’ll tell them anyway. Besides, just as sure as the feather still lies in the little box on my bedside table, I can’t forget.Wings Like Eagles by Lipizzaner-Kgirl
I saw the comet on the same night as the accident. I was only nine years old at that time, and I didn’t fully understand what had happened or how it would change my life.
But when I woke up I knew something was wrong. Then the doctors were telling me that the when the car had hit me, it had damaged my spine. I heard them telling me that I, Kate Henson, would never walk again.
It’s funny how the mind remem
15. SculptingAnd here beyond the universe you dwell,15. Sculpting by LaBruyere
Setting into motion clouds and rain,
Taking into hand and shaping well
The mountains curving upwards from the plain.
So vast that men have set no foot to rest
On every rock and crag and waterfall
Among them. Let your worthy heart be blessed
With sounds of waves, of winds, rejoicing, all.
As we inspire ourselves with what we see,
Your splendor goes beyond the naked eye
And farther still than telescopes while we
Can fathom not your power though we try.
You are the sculptor, mastermind and cause
And set in motion love and life and laws.

In contrast with the rest of Polynesia the Marquesas are remarkably dry.
