|Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day he visits us. 1 Peter 2:12|
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

StrongerI'll stand there and hear you outStronger by DaraBlack
Your words are like daggers that pierce my skin
I see the gleam in your eye, your hope that I will doubt
With my silence you feel that you will win
Mocking my faith isn't enough for you
You have to judge the way I live
You take up your weapon aimed at me anew
I just smile and remember to forgive
I see the smug smile on your face...you think you have won
But in truth your words have made me stronger
Now run along, you've had your fun
I won't listen to you any longer
A poem written about an incident that happened between a co-worker and myself. He calls himself a "realist". I don't have an issue with him...but he makes it very clear he has an issue with me and my family being Christian. He made it a point to mock us....one thing you DO NOT DO is mess with my family. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own belief/opinion...or lack thereof...but why go to the point of mocking and being intolerant? His words just brought a smile to my face and made me
EdenSaid God, despite perfection found in Three:Eden by LaBruyere
"Let there be another in this place,
And let him reflect glory back to me."
"Tis naught but a reflection of my face;
Mankind shall rule a garden, bear a name.
So let there be another in this place."
Trees bear fruit and helpers bear the blame--
Serpents striking heels will be retried.
Man has ruled a garden, borne a name.
Reflecting former glory mankind cried;
His failing cast a shadow on such love.
Serpents striking heels will be retried.
Oh man who stands as icon, not enough;
Still one more will come to stand as king.
Man's failing cast a shadow on such love.
Victory will come, the garden sings.
Said God, despite perfection found in Three:
"Still one more will come to stand as King,
And let him reflect glory back to me."
RevolutionChains and chains of hopeless bind the system togetherRevolution by GhostDemon915
No one feeling like they can change the world
No one feeling like our very existence is just vanity
No one feeling like there is anything to live for
Millions and millions of confusion in the air tonight
Fills the blue skies and enters into our hearts
Confusion and vanity is what the world runs by
Be this, do that, give this, believe that; all I can do now is raise my fist in the sky
As I raise my fist high in the sky, I shout a battle cry of life
There is only one voice that still stands out through the generations
I shout a battle cry with my fist in the sky; words that brings the world to life
Words that brings light back into the hearts of people from young to old
Revolution; time to end the misery
Revolution; time to show the world the true meaning of life
Revolution; time to show the world that true love exists beyond our understanding
Revolution; time to cry out into the heavens for love to come down
Revolution; time to rise
This is Hell - Esto es el InfiernoESTO ES EL INFIERNOThis is Hell - Esto es el Infierno by ll-Bisto-ll
Como un fuego
Como un dolor
Desolación, lejos, lejos, lejos de todo
Lejos de todos
Lejos del Creador
¿¡Por qué no acepté!?
Por qué me negué...
Negué un perdón
Negué un amor
Negué lo único bueno
Y lo rechacé...
Yo ofendí a mi Creador.
Con mis palabras
Con mis actitudes
Con mi orgullo
Con mis reacciones
Con mis contiendas
Vanas, injustificadas disensiones...
Todo lo opuesto
Al principio para el cual fui creado:
Llevar la imagen del Creador
Era mi responsabilidad...
Él me ofreció perdón
Él me ofreció restaurar lo dañado
Me ofreció el pago a mi ofensa...
Él me e
Finding Faith Through ScienceRocket scientist Jim Bradford says that science has always affirmed his faith.Finding Faith Through Science by Allendra3
Jim sees science as the study of what God made. And he defines science in this way: Science is an endeavor to explore and understand. Scientism is a philosophy that starts by saying that nothing supernatural exists. Jim points out that this viewpoint is unable to answer the question of where the matter and energy came from that supposedly started the Big Bang, according to the theory.
With a Ph.D. in aerospace engineering, among Jim’s many accomplishments is working with Boeing on space shuttles. Up until college he was too shy to do any sort of Christian leadership. But he overcame this during college by inadvertently leading a Christian student group each week. Now, along with his rocket science career he also talks to people about the relationship between science and religion.
According to Jim, this viewpoint that we were not Created is one of despair. It’s saying that you are an
Truth Without Love?(2/04/2014)Truth Without Love? by Jazzy-C-Oaks
I see this happen way too often, even in the comments section of my own deviations; you can even see it happening on the pages of my stamps:
Too often I will see an atheist post a comment in disagreement with the deviation, and a believer replies to that atheist's comment in the same snarky manner as the atheist who disagreed. And the comments will go on and on in snark-to-snark combat as they attempt to correct each other.
What's worse, sometimes even an atheist won't necessarily be acting snarky--perhaps just having an honest disagreement with reason behind it--but the so-called "Christian" who tries to correct them does act snarky to them, even so much as insulting the non-believer for his/her statements.
Well guess what? Out of my love for all of you and my love for God's Truth, prepare to face some honest and well-needed correction.
Do you know what the bible says about that kind of attitude that t
((OOC: Christian chat adviser/counselor?+updates))((Guys... I'm so sorry. I didn't want to bring this here. But, I'm going through something, and I really need some help. I've been searching for days, and I can't find any kind of Free Christian advice center that will actually get back to you, or any other type of advice center, for that matter. And I really need it.((OOC: Christian chat adviser/counselor?+updates)) by Visessentia
And, no. I'm not looking for friendly advice. I want someone who knows their stuff, and who has experience. I've had it up to my neck with "friendly advice." I want someone who's gonna tell me how it is, whether I like it or not. So, sorry guys, but before you ask: no, I don't wanna talk about it, especially not here.
Also, no hate comments or just bashing my faith, okay? If you don't agree, that's fine. But either be constructive and helpful, or just go to another page. I don't need argument crap right now.
Yeah, if you know me, I probably sound a bit testy right now. Forgive me. I'll try not to let it effect my work.
For those of you wondering, I'm planning
Society and the Human ConditionMany people endeavor to try and make a perfect world. Many others attempt to establish something new in society as to better themselves to make the world a perfect place. Some declare that humanity is so corrupted that there is no way that the corruption can be fixed. In this world there are good people who have done some bad things and bad people who have done some good things. There are some bad people who have reformed and good people who have become corrupted. What does this say about humanity?Society and the Human Condition by LordElthibar
The truth is we are not perfect. Each and every one of us has the potential for both good and evil, thus we are in control of our lives and thus we determine whether or not we follow God or not. God declared that there would be trials and tribulations for the people that followed Him. The conditions in free will and the choice to recognize what is right and wrong is what defines us as a sentient species, thus the Armenian view of Christianity is supported. Unfortunately, due to our fallen co
