|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."

Be the light in a dark worldThe world is a dark place.Be the light in a dark world by JesusFreak978
It is filled with sin, pain and despair.
Shadows overwhelm everything.
It seems as if there is no hope.
And despite all this, if you look close enough, you can see a spark of light.
A light that outshines the darkness.
A light that keeps evil at bay.
And before you now it, it grows in strength and evaporates the blackness leaving peace behind.
If there is one thing God wants us to be, it is to be the light in the dark world that surrounds us.
He want's you to shine.
He wan's you to overcome fear and sin, to strive and to light the world around you.
You may think you are worthless, without meaning but God loves you enough to put you on this earth with the potential to change it.
Let Gods word be your fuel,
let Gods love be your heat,
let His wisdom be your air.
With these 3 things you will be set alight and you will have purpose.
Darkness may tempt you to burn out, but if God is with you who could stand against you?
With Him at your side no darkness can burn y
My Psalm 6 - The Anointed of YHWHMi Salmo 6: "El Ungido de Jehová"My Psalm 6 - The Anointed of YHWH by ll-Bisto-ll
1 Oh, el Ungido de Jehová,
Su Amado, en quién se deleita Jehová;
2 Eternamente Su gozo y comunión,
En un mismo Espíritu, un solo Dios.
3 Como el hombre y sus palabras,
Como el sol y su luz,
4 Así y tanto más, Jehová y Su Sabiduría,
Arquitecto de los cielos y la tierra;
5 Engendrado en Su voz,
Y desde siempre en el seno
6 Del único y sabio Dios,
De quien son todas las cosas.
7 Jehová ama la justicia,
La verdad, la santidad;
8 ¿Cómo no amará Jehová
A Su Sabiduría que siempre
Ante Él tuvo solaz?
9 Su imagen al cielo y tierra,
Su Hijo ante los hombres,
10 Su primogénito ante todos.
El Hijo de Dios, unigénito de Jehová.

My Psalm 5 - Spirit of the SonMi Salmo 5: "Espíritu del Hijo"My Psalm 5 - Spirit of the Son by ll-Bisto-ll
1 No deshonréis la Unción del Santo,
No contristéis al Espíritu de Dios.
2 No blasfeméis al que santifica la ofrenda,
El sacrificio vivo para el Tres Veces Santo.
3 No profanéis al que os ha hecho Templo,
El lugar de Su habitación y guía de Su pueblo.
4 Prestad oído hoy, a Aquel mediante quien
El Ungido se ofreció en expiación a Jehová,
El Espíritu del Hijo, el que clama 'Abba, Padre'.
My Psalm 5: "Spirit of the Son"
1 Do not disgrace the Anointing of the Holy One,
Do not grieve the Spirit of God.
2 Do not blaspheme Him who sanctifies the offering,
The living sacrifice for the Thrice Holy.
3 Do not profane Him who has made you Temple,
The place of His dwelling and guide of His people.

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.

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
