personal-belief

ad0riiing asked:

i feel like you cant come to the abortion debate and be a very strong liberal or a very strong conservative, because it doesnt matter weather or not you choose to be politically correct or morally correct, its going to turn into a big argument and none of the people arguing are going to want to hear eachother out, i think if you try to be as emotionally correct (not condesending, trying to see the other persons side)as possible, your voice will get heard alot louder than if you are just arguing.

Here’s the thing, I’m not angry that people are pro-life, if that’s what they believe, that’s fine, that’s their personal choice!

But, when people want to force their own personal beliefs onto me and others, I’m allowed to be angry.

When people want to treat me like I’m an incubator with no feelings, wants, needs, or a future, I’m allowed to be angry.

When people tell me I’m a murderer, slut, bitch, and many other insults because I had an abortion, I’m allowed to be angry.

When people tell me to kill myself/hope I get hurt/killed because I had an abortion, I’m allowed to be angry.

When people support laws that deny me my personhood and bodily autonomy, I’m allowed to be angry.

How'd you go from atheist to a pastor?

Hey there dear friend, here are a few posts about that. As always, please feel free to skip around. I also want to add that these are not some kind of template or ammo you can use on an atheist. These are just scattered pieces of my own personal journey from non-belief to Jesus.

- Why Do You Believe In Jesus?

- Why Christianity?

- What’s Your Testimony?

- Why Is Evangelizing So Awkward?

- How Are You An “Atheist Christian”?

- Come On, Were You Really An Atheist?

- Call To Ministry Statement.

I am so glad you made the distinction between personal beliefs and political beliefs!! So many people confuse the two! Thank you for your gracious and smart response.

Thank you! It means a lot!!

I want to say something provocative but I know that it won't do me any good on here.

The most closed-minded, intolerant, and bigoted people in the world are the ones who preach the most to others about open-mindedness, tolerance, and diversity.

They are the fastest to criticize anything that deviates from their worldview and the first to slam another person’s beliefs and lifestyle choices because they conflict with their ideology.

They are the biggest proponents of hate and the ones who most actively seek to control the lives of others who refuse to think, act, live, or believe the way that they do.

This is the primary reason why I am a libertarian and not a liberal (besides the fact that socialism is an epic failure that never brings anything but misery and ruin to societies that flirt with it). I cannot abide rank hypocrisy, and the ideology of the left seethes with it.

Path Of Seven

The Seven Sights / Perseptenary Path

This path incorporates that of Celtic roots and traditions, as well as modern traditions. We celebrate seven major sabbats by the Celtic year, seven sacred trees, seven perceivable realms/sights, & seven great Fae. We work with the earth, planets and the stars. & as for magical practices:  Folk magic, traditional witchcraft, Faeid, & hedge witchery are the foundation for this path, while it’s structure is footed in wicca, with the emphasis on the natural order of the world, the seasons, the moon phases, the elements, & the emphasis on the masculine and feminine energies. 

The Seven

It is very true what is said about self love, it gets you a lot further than self-hate and the less you give a fuck about what people think the happier you’ll be. Don’t worry, even though it doesn’t seem like it right now, you will find that thing you love to do, that thing that gives you purpose that you are great at; you will find a person who will love you, who will treat you with the respect you deserve; you will learn to love yourself; you will be able to rise from the ashes of your depression; you can change your life. Be you, unafraid and unashamed. You are so much more capable than you realize.
If you want to change you must shake your foundations. Demolish the concrete that has cemented your beliefs that you’re not enough. You cannot live in a house built on ground determined to erode away its very existence.

sassy Will

This mentality is a huge part of where my self confidence comes from. We are all amazing individuals, unique in every way. We face our own struggles, trials and triumphs in all we do. It is not fair to either party to compare.

I find the world today tends to pit woman against woman. She wore it better. She did it better. She looked better. She is better. Etc. We don’t have to “compete” against others…there really is no competition because we are different. Instead of looking at someone and comparing your progress of any sort to theirs, try and look at it for the singular journey it is. Use someone else as your inspiration. Be thankful that you have been able to use their own journey in such a way and beat the compete mentality.

Instead of resentment, be inspired. Instead of comparison, be empowered to do better. Congratulate others instead of sending hate. Be gracious and supportive and others will be so for you,

The Winter Soldier Investigation was a media event intended to publicize war crimes and atrocities by Americans and allies in Vietnam, while showing their direct relationship to American administration and war policies. This 3-day gathering of American Vietnam War veterans, civilians and media took place in Detroit, Michigan, from January 31-February 2, 1971, and was organized by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War. 109 Vietnam veterans and 16 civilians gave testimony about war crimes they had committed or witnessed during the years of 1963-1970.

You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It’s not like you have forever, so don’t waste any of your seconds, don’t throw even one of your moments away.
