July, is the feast day of St Mary Magdalene, one of Christianity’s most
important saints. Mentioned in all the canonical Gospels as a close follower of
Jesus, Mary is nevertheless a mysterious figure. Her name suggest that she originated from Magdala Tarichaea, an historical town on the sea of Galilee, and may also
indicate that she was not married, as it does not include her husband’s name.
On the contrary, the best-known facts of the Magdalene’s life — her sinful life as a prostitute
and her momentous conversion to a saintly life — are not confirmed by the Bible’s
text. For example, Jesus’ well-known maxim “let him that is without sin cast
the first stone,” traditionally associated with the Magdalene, actually only
refers to an unnamed “woman caught in adultery” (John 8:2–11). Along the centuries, the
figure of the Magdalene became intertwined and confused with that of other
female disciples and Biblical Marys.
Mainly, I’m doing this to not only celebrate my very random follower milestone (because 1.2k? really?), but I also find my dashboard to be a bit scarce of posts because honestly, I don’t follow enough people.
Stuff to do:
➜ mbf lamecity ➜ reblog this post to spread it ➜ send me an ask of either your favourite blogger (spreading positivity yay!) or the song that’s been stuck in your head for 4 days
url I don’t get it | nice ring to it | awesome | woah | jensen ackles
icon I’m not sure what it is | pretty | amazing | yassss | french fries
bio effective | nice | awesome | creative af | swan song
Some of the things I find most attractive that Christian guys do (because thinking of every reason would take too long):
-bowing head low in prayer
-speaking passionately about his faith/defending the Bible strongly
-the way they care for others
-their amazing chivalry
-how they view and respect women
-how they love their family
-how strong they are, yet how gentle they are with the ones they love
The world doesn’t need more Christian boys.
We need more Jesus-following men.
If the label Christian is going to be thrown around, then our generation ought to correct what “Christian” truly means. Rise up! We are Jesus followers.
So here’s an idea, it’d be awesome to connect with like minded/same beliefs/faith on here.
If you’re a Christian or hey a follower of Jesus who considers themselves progressive. Pro equality, pro human rights, pro love, pro the Bible isn’t all literal etc etc. There’s awesome definitions of progressive Christianity on Google even.
But give this post a like and/or reblog and maybe we can connect and uplift eachother! Xx
