'cause the bible tells me so

I sent this to my friend Connor and his response was to make it…so i did.

“Canadian Pie"

[Intro]

A long, long time ago

I can still remember how that hockey used to make me smile

And I knew if I had my chance

That I could make those people dance

And maybe they’d be happy for a while

But February made me shiver

With every puck I’d deliver

Bad news on the TV

I couldn’t take one more penalty 

I can’t remember if I cried

When I saw about his Canadian dry

But something touched me deep inside

The day the Tim Hortons died

[Chorus]

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Verse 1]

Did you write the book of eh

And do you have faith in the Hockey Gods above

If the Canadian Bible tells you so?

Now do you believe in Canadian jokes?

Can syrup save your mortal soul

And can you teach me how to skate a real game?

Well, I know that you’re in love with Canadian Moose’s

‘Cause I saw you looking outside

You went up to the moose

Man, I dig those Hortons and Canadian goose

I was a lonely teenage hockey player

With a white trillium n and a zamboni

But I knew I was out of luck

The day the ice struck

[Chorus]

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Verse 2]

Now for ten years we’ve been on our own

And snow falls fast on a rollin’ stone

But that’s  how it used to be

When the jester sang for the queen

In a coat he borrowed from Justin Bieber

And a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the queen was looking down

The jester stole her maple crown

The courtroom was adjourned

No verdict was returned

And while Gil Adamson read the book on The outlander

A quartet practiced in the Hockey rink

And we sang dirges in the dark

The day the maples died

[Chorus]

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Verse 3]

Helter skelter in a winter chill

The Geese flew into Americas warm weather

1,404 miles high and falling fast

It landed foul on the grass

The Hockey players tried for a forward pass

With the beaver on the sidelines in a cast

Now the third quarter air was sweet perfume

While the mounties played a marching tune

We all got up to dance

Oh, but we never got the chance

'Cause the players tried to take the rink

The mounties band refused to yield

Do you recall what was revealed

The day the we all apologized 

[Chorus]

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Verse 4]

Oh, and there we were all in one place

A generation lost in space

With no time left to start again

So come on, Robin sparkles be nibble,Robin Sparkles be quick

Robin Sparkles sat on a Hockey stick

'Cause maple syrup is the Canadians only friend

Oh, and as I watched Robin on the stage

My hands were clenched in fists of niceness

No angel born in Canada

Could break that apologetic spell

And as the flames climbed high into the winning league 

To fight the capitals 

I saw america laughing with delight

The day the capitals died

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Outro]

I met a girl who sang Lets go to the mall

And I asked her for some happy news

But she just smiled and sang Lets go to the mall

I went down to the sacred store Tim Hortons

Where I’d heard the music years before

But the man there said the music wouldn’t play

And in the streets, the children screamed

The lovers cried and the poets dreamed

But not a word was spoken

The Hockey bells all were broken

And the three men I admire most

The Father, Son and the Holy Hockey gods

They caught the last train for the border

The day we apologize 

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

[Chorus]

So bye-bye, its Canadian pie

Drove my Camry to the sobeys, but then started to cry

And them good old boys were drinkin’ tims and syrup

Singin’ “This’ll be the day that I apologize

This’ll be the day that I apologize”

I will never stop posting about what’s right in the eyes of God just because I might lose followers. It’s preposterous to even imagine that a true Christian would care more about their followers in a social site than speaking the truth about God’s Word. I try to open the eyes of people to the truth of God’s Word and I will keep doing so until the day I am gathered by my God, the God of Israel, and join Him in His Kingdom.

This Tumblr is an extension of myself and since I’m a follower of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, God’s only son, that means my Tumblr is just as much of a Christian as I am. I will never bow down to any other god besides my God. Popularity, peer-pressure, luxury, none of that matters to me one bit. My eyes are focused on the end game, which is Heaven. How can you say you want to spend eternity in Heaven if you aren’t even willing to spend your time worshipping Him on your limited existence here on Earth? If you are going to follow me, you have to be ready to be hit by the truth because the truth sets you free. As Jesus tells us in John 8:31-32Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Every now and then I lose some followers because of my stand against abortion, homosexuality, idolatry, false religions, foul language, drunkenness, and all other sins which the Lord detests, and it’s a shame people can’t cope with the truth and choose to unfollow me but I’m not losing any sleep over it. My views are what God tells us in the Bible and His views are perfect and sinless, unlike our views which are easily corrupted by sin. I’m not in the business of getting personal followers, I’m in the business of getting faithful followers for Christ. All I can do is hope that one day the peoples of the world will decide to get closer to God and accept His Word and His views on how things are supposed to be rather than to settle for what society and the Devil hopes for the world to be.

As we are told in Isaiah 7If you do not stand firm in your faith, then you will not stand at all.“ You can either be loved by the world and end up in Hell, or have the world hate you due to your faithful love towards God, but you gotta look at the bigger picture, even though the world will hate you for your beliefs in Christ you will get to go to Heaven for your faithful service. Stand firm with God, never compromise. To live in a life where you have to compromise what is taught in His Word is to not wanting to faithfully serve God. If you can’t faithfully serve Him while on Earth, how can you expect to faithfully serve Him for all eternity in Heaven?

I used to have hundreds of people on my ignore list here on Tumblr, people that run porn blogs, homosexual blogs, Muslim blogs, blogs dedicated to say that the Bible is "evil”, blogs that make fun of Christ, people that had sent hate and rude mail to me, and all sorts of other blogs ran by lost souls, but I removed them all from my ignore recently, after all Jesus tell us in Matthew 5If you are kind only to your friends, how are you different from anyone else?” I now know the reason of my existence here on Earth, which is to spread God’s Word and maybe one day those lost souls will realize how far they’ve gone astray from the Lord and will seek Him out and be saved. I struggled with this, after all these lost souls go believe in everything that goes against what God teaches us, but the truth is that those people are blind to God’s truth and if I ignore them how can God use me to spread His Word? If I can be the spark that makes them realize just how lost they are, I’ll gladly let the Lord use me for that purpose. How are we supposed to follow Jesus’ example and be a light in such a dark world if we close the door on other people that are lost in the darkness? Remember what Paul wrote in Philippians 2:14-15: “Do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people." So please, become the beacon of light that will steer our lost brothers and sisters in their moment of darkness back to the light.

A well-known British preacher from over a century ago, Charles H. Spurgeon, once said that "Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.” We are representatives of Christ in this world. I’m not saying that we should all become missionaries in the sense of going out to Asia or Africa or some far away countries - although if that’s your calling *high five* - but I mean in the sense of spreading God’s Word to our friends, random people on the internet, our neighbors and anyone we can. My love for Christ compels me to spread His Word to everyone. I want people to be saved. Has my strong attitude towards worship of God and my faithfulness to the Gospel caused me to lose some friends? Yes, it has, but I rather lose a friend and hope to have sown the seed in that person’s life which will lead them to Christ because I was honest with them rather than pretend to be a lukewarm Christian that’s okay with the practices of the world and lie to anyone about important issues regarding the Bible. I want people to experience God’s grace. So I’ll keep on preaching the truth as the Bible tells us until I’m not on this Earth anymore.

Also, please, never trade your Bible reading time to socialize on the internet. Hitting the like/reblog buttons won’t save you, only Christ will. Get close to God and build a personal and close relationship with the Lord. Never let Tumblr, Facebook or whatever other site on the internet draw you away from the Lord. Reading the Bible is the best way to get closer to the Lord.

I will always speak the truth about His Word, whether it might upset people or not. I will never be ashamed of God’s Word.

Romans 1:16
For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is the power of God at work, saving everyone who believes—the Jew first and also the Gentile.

anonymous asked:

how did you get over your porn addiction?

sorry it took me so long to respond!!! I have been really busy. This is what helped me :)

1) Move your computer where someone can see it all times.

2) Make notecards with bibles verses, song lyrics, quotes that inspire you and when you feel tempted read those as instead.

3) Realize what tempts you. What causes you to want to watch porn.

3) Realize why you watch porn. Do you want to have sex? Do you do it as a source of release? 

4) After reflecting pray to God. Be completely honest and open and transparent about your struggle. Tell him everything.

5) Find another source of relief. Journal, blog, exercise, go on walks, sing, etc.

6) Remember the truth. That you are a beautiful, beloved, child of God. NOTHING will ever change that! You can never disappoint him. You don’t hold him up. Rather, he holds you up:)  

7) Relapse is a part of recovery. You can learn a lot. It also helps you grow and streghthen you. It’s like a spiral staircase. You go two steps forward and then you relapse so you take one step back. But you still are moving forward:) You’re still growing and learning:)

8) Find someone you can talk with when your struggling or to celebrate with:) For me it is my mentors and my best friend…if you don’t have someone like that…I would love to be that for you:)

9) Celebrate small victories:) One day, one week, one month, etc. :)

10) this is not an easy battle and you have to realize that. take one day at a time. dont look to your past or worry about the future. Live in the present because that is where God is:)

hope this helps! :) Message me anytime. You are not alone! You can do this! Stay strong, beautiful anon:)

Hi, I was wondering how to forgive someone who has hurt you emotionally. I know that God tells us to love our enemies and forgive those who have mistreated you, but it's really hard for me to let go of a grudge. I don't want to let this person back into my life, but do you know a specific prayer or story in the Bible that could help me in forgiving and letting go of my anger?

God must have felt the same way when we have strayed for far too long, when we chose to sin and hurt Him, when we have caused Him anger and grief. For so many times we have disappointed God and for so many times He had forgiven us when we choose to come back and say how much we’re sorry. That is the perfect demonstration of love and forgiveness. We never deserved forgiveness from our God but because he loved us so much, His Son Jesus Christ died on our behalf and rose again from the dead. 

It is hard to forgive someone who have hurt you a lot, especially when they never felt sorry (I know because I had also been through that). It is also hard to follow what Jesus says that we should love our enemies and forgive those who have mistreated us, it takes an extra effort to do what He says but with God nothing is impossible. Jesus said  ‘love your neighbor as yourself.‘  The key is to let love abound! 

To be forgiven is one of the greatest gift one can ever receive. Don’t deprive someone of that gift because in the first place, God didn’t deprive us of His forgiveness.

I’m going to wreck this book with color pencils and they’re basically telling me to draw tadashi everywhere cause he’s still alive right. Yep especially the comic part where they’re losing and then I draw Tadashi coming to save them right. Yep. Yeeeep.

Buy this book it’s so cute and there are all kinds of activities in here. I feel like a kid again doing these coloring books. It’s 7 dollars I believe. Worth.

“If you’re gay you’re praised." 

I saw this on my facebook today. The second comment was made by probably one of my closest friends in middle school/high school. 

When I came out as a lesbian to my parents, I sure as hell wasn’t fucking ‘praised’. When I came out to my school, I wasn’t put on a fucking pedestal with my girlfriend and thrown flowers on dammit. Had to fucking hide in secluded corners so eyes wouldn’t stare too long we had to deal with people saying over and over again 'oh they’re just close friends’ and let me fucking tell you something, I’m so happy that these professional athletes are coming out because god, they are hero’s. And you think they’re still being praised???? With like ¾ of comments on articles, youtube videos being 'AUGHHH THesE GAYYYYSSS PUSHING THEIR AGENDA DOWN OUR THROATS>>>' 

thats not being 'praised.' 

And I know you’re talking about the fucking media but god where iN thE WoRLD DID ANYONE TELL TEBOW TO 'STOP TALKING ABOUT GOD’

It’s funny, 'cause like, Russell Wilson, quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks is probably the most beloved man in Seattle right now and his twitter is stocked with numerous of bible verses and does anyone bother or mock him about it? no. 

Shut up shut up shut up shut up fuck I’m sad I AM SO SO SAD you were my best friend. YOU WERE MY BEST FRIEND NOT EVEN 4 YEARS AGO and it breaks my heart 'cause part of me wants so bad to tell you everything about this amazing girl I met but the sneer I imagine on your face when I do stops me. 

anonymous asked:

What is your reason for believing in God despite all that the world puts on us today & all of the "scientic evidence" that the bible must be false? I also believe in God entirely and think the bible is true but also up to interpretation. I woud love to hear your thoughts put into words.

For me, believing in God is easy. I talk to Him everyday and I visibly see Him work in my life. I have a relationship with Christ that speaks much more to me than just the words in the Bible. Knowing and reading scripture helps me to understand and deeper root my faith, but it’s my intimate relationship that keeps me grounded and causes me to live out my life the way I do. His radical, unending love brings me the peace and joy no worldly pleasures could bring. When I lean on Him I am more content with my life and who I am, of course it’s an everyday battle, and Christ tells us there will be trials and struggles, but without depending on Him I would be so lost and feel so alone. I am swimming in a pool of grace because of Christ, and for that I’m incredibly thankful. Science today can say whatever it wants, but when I look at the stars and the moon and the sunsets and sunrises I know my God made those things just for me to find pleasure. If you just look around you can see Him everywhere. There was a time I didn’t truly believe and it was my first ever experience feeling God’s presence that changed my life. There is nothing I could ever do to cause Him to love me less and I know I am so undeserving of that. I want to know Him more everyday and I want to love like my Jesus does.

" How not to react when your child tells you that he's gay " p

There’s a video on youtube called ” How not to react when your child tells you that he’s gay ”

So basically in this video it’s pretty much the nightmare of every child who’s in the closet..

It’s a video about a 19 year old guy that pretty much get’s disowned by his family in less then 10 minutes after coming out.

I can’t get over how horrible this video made me feel. This boy trusted the people he thought were gonna love him no matter what and they started calling him names, telling him it’s a choice, calling him a disgrace etc.

These people choose the bible over their son, cause ” those are gods words”.

My question is.. How do you really know that it’s Gods words? Did god write it?
Did it fall out of the heaven? Did it magically appear in every church in every language?
No, it didn’t.
The bible is written by humans. Humans seeking power.
The bible has been manipulated and has even lost what was left untouched in translation.

Now do you really think god would approve of you disowning your child?
Kicking him out of the house because you believe in the word of god?

God wants us to love one another no matter what! The only lesson we came to learn on this horrible place we call earth, is love.
Love conquers hate.

No child should be disowned, no child should suffer rejection from their family. No child should be left on his/her own because they don’t love the opposite gender.

Why must we hate other because of who they love?
