i feel it my eyebrows are literally so sparse so i'm trying to grow them out and do them once they fill out but like??? it's not working, the top of my right eyebrow is missing an arch so it's my right eyebrow that hates me

Why did @god create us just to let us suffer like this

last year i looked at some natural hairstyles and there were many that i thought resembled plants.
i want to do a series of paintings of them - hopefully in the style of vintage portraits if i can pull it off.
some of the comparisons might be reaching on my part but anything to encourage the young and underrepresented (in the media at least).
i believe God created nature and us. and that He loves us all as we are. don’t look to industries to find your worth. we are fearfully and wonderfully made! (psalm 139:14)

i saw the ocean and the only thing that crossed my mind was how i could drown in your eyes and how the waves danced as quick as your leg bounces when your nervous,
usually people have a sort of epiphany when the ocean comes in sight for the first time, but it only solidified my notion that you are the most beautiful element on this planet,
the breeze was cold and harsh and i crave your sweet warm embrace as the icey water kisses the soles of my feet while i stand unstably in this whirlwind of a life,
when God created the ocean he used the colours in your eyes and the love you hold in them as his muse.
—  you are my ocean

Prayer is not to change God, but you

God is omnipresent and omniscient and knows our needs. Prayer is the process by which God gives us His perspective. It is a time to turn our hearts and minds.

Prayer is not about your needs 

In prayer, we must first seek God’s will to know where we should put our faith. Many people approach prayer with the uncertainty of whether their prayers will be answered. Before we can pray effectively, we must ascribe faith to our prayers, and we can not have that without the certainty that we are praying for what God wants. 

Prayer is not just about you 

Make sure that prayer is focused on other people. It’s easy to get bogged down with our own petitions and requests, but God wants us to put others before ourselves. This concept is specifically aligned in Scripture and says we should consider others better than ourselves. What better way to do that than putting others first in our prayers? 

Prayer is not only to speak but also listen 

Listening is a critical part of the prayer. It is important to meditate, sit still and not have a one-sided conversation. Nothing is more discouraging than getting involved with someone who dominates a conversation. This also applies in prayer. God wants to speak to us. We should be all ears and practice the art of being quiet and still before God. When we do, we will surprise us with the number of times during meditation God speak with us. 

Prayer is not just about the future 

It is vital that we express gratitude to God for what has been done. It’s easy to just focus on our needs, but we should reserve a part of our prayer time to always tell God how thankful we are for listening and responding to our needs earlier. We need to have a thankful heart.

When we begin to understand these truths about prayer, let us be more effective in aligning our hearts and conversations with God’s will, instead of being prevented from having a deep personal conversation with Christ. God created us as a people who love the community and He wants to have the same intimate relationship with us

anonymous asked:

Have you heard of ex gays/lesbians? I'm a Christian and believe in God and I've been thinking about it and what if by God's help our desires can fade away and we can become normal

No. God created us to be how we are. I fought who I was for 22 years - 4 of those so hard that I wanted to die. God wouldn’t put that on me. I prayed constantly, nothing changed. When I did finally let go and be myself, God brought love into my life. I stopped fighting myself and was so happy. He created me to feel violated whenever a man touched me or even kissed me, no matter how much I trusted them. He created me to cry over fearing that I was incapable of love, when I forced myself to date men and never felt like myself. The eating disorders and depression that I dealt with because I hated who I was? No God would do that for a lesson. Not a God I believe in. My God does that to show us His path. Don’t let a book written by man ever tell you how God made you to be. He makes no mistakes and He wants you to experience love the way He intended. He wouldn’t allow you to be miserable just to fit into a standard. He made you to be you and He isn’t going to change that - that was HIS plan… not the church’s, not the Bible’s. Trust that and you’ll see how He provides. Being gay, bisexual, transgender, etc. IS normal. It’s the cult-like practices and teachings that are not.

Jesus wasn’t special because He was Jesus. He was special because He was love. We’re not so different, because that’s who God created us to be as well. He modeled the life we were created for. So we can’t say we can’t be like Him because we’re us and He’s Jesus. We’re made in His image and He lives in us.

it sounded romantic when I heard it the first time. it was before we were married, and he told us to not forget it. seriously, he said, keep this one with you because when it gets hard, you’re going to need it–okay here it is. the purpose of marriage is not happiness, but growth.

ugh, I love that, I said.

no you don’t, he said. you’re happy right now, so you feel up for it. growth usually happens when you’re not up for it. you love the idea of it, but you’re not going to like it. that’s okay, but it’s important to expect it.

he was right. it’s not romantic, it’s hard. it’s not that warm feeling i like. sometimes it feels a lot more like a limb is about to be pulled out of its socket. you reach a fork in the road, and it’s time to grow again, but God I just rather not today. you made me grow last week. resisting the growth is more painful than the growth.

he was right. it’s not romantic. it’s actually annoying how much growing is going on right now. I am tired of growing.

you know that scene in miss congeniality where she is forced to eat healthy food, so she has hidden junk food under her pageant gown? and her coach makes her give them all up? but there’s more. so he takes those too. no choice. no exceptions. that is how I feel. give me your pride, and now your greed–no, all of it. and jealousy–i’ll be taking that. ok, fine, here. is that enough? no, hand me your resentment. oh! and the comparison. i almost forgot that one–hand it over.

that fork in the road I mentioned with one way being growth–don’t mistake the other road as happiness. like I said, to not walk into the growth is more painful. that’s because resisting it means walking into avoidance, into denial, into defensiveness, into stagnancy, it is anything but happiness.

marriage is a mirror. by design, God created us to reflect back to each other what isn’t resembling him. you can get angry, and defensive, refusing to look in the mirror. you can punish your spouse for functioning as they’re intended to. or you can acknowledge what’s coming up, thank them for showing you, ask them to love you, and choose to grow.

anonymous asked:

I'm worried about men having sexual relations being forbidden in the torah. As a member of the LGBT community this scares me, do you think it is just because it was a different time and this was more considered a sin of man against his wife? That's all I could come up with, but I just can't make myself believe that G-d would condemn something as such between to married people who are in love.

Hi there,

You have an extremely valid concern.  I believe that a literary analysis of the material can help to illuminate why “the two verses” exist in the text and how we can better understand them as contemporary Jews.  The most quoted verses of the Tanakh which aim to indignity LGBT+ folks are Lev. 18:22 and 20:13 (”man shalt does not lie with man”) and Deut. 22:5 (“a man shalt not wear women’s clothing”).  I apologize in advanced for the massive amount of text present, but it is all important in order to validate and illuminate your concerns.

men have a dick and balls and women have tits and a pussy

and we, men have to hide our balls, and we do. and we have to hide our dick too

women have to hide their genitala too, their pussy and their tits

and men hide their genitala by wearing pants, and women “sadly” have to wear both pants and a bra/shirt to hide their genitalia

get it?

now, i’d like to remind you that feminism is about being EQUAL, not about one gender being higher than the other one

The Bible is the greatest love story of all time, in my opinion. (And I read all sorts of other stories. A ton. I love reading, but nothing compares.) God created us, and He sent His Son to die for us, even after we rejected Him time and time again, because He loves us that much. He loves us so much that He sent His only Son so that we could have everlasting life. If that isn’t true love then I don’t know what is.

anonymous asked:

Do you have a compilation of issues with Catholicism? I searched some tags on your blog and couldn't find much. I feel as if the Catholic church puts a bit too much emphasis on man and not enough on God, but I'd like to have some solid arguments instead of just a feeling. Thanks!

Here (finally) is a masterpost for all the asks I’ve received about this topic! I’m about to unintentionally ruffle quite a lot of feathers here, with having quite a significant amount of presumably catholic followers. Therefore, as always is my goal, there will be LOTS of scripture references to back things up, and everything I link to I do so because it also is saturated with additional scripture. Always, ALWAYS going back to what the Bible says.

I would absolutely agree that the Catholic religion puts a dangerous, even dire, amount of focus on the efforts of man, and we will see that as we dive into their claims vs. the scriptures. The false teachings of Catholicism will be in bold.

Grace plus works doctrine – Paul plainly addresses this problem in Galatians. The people were adopting what Paul calls “another gospel” which was grace plus works. This is what Paul says, “Are you so foolish? Having begun in the Spirit, are you now being made perfect by the flesh?” (Galatians 3:3) Let’s look at that verse again, Paul is saying it is foolish to think that having been begun being justified by God’s grace that your human works will complete that. He says that is foolishness! Our good works are not what save us. It is God who saves us. From the moment we believe we are completely justified because of what Jesus did in dying on the cross. That chapter goes on to use Abraham as an example, and I would absolutely advocate reading Galatians, especially chapter 3. Ephesians 2:8-10 says, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” God created us to do good works, however, the Bible is clear that good works are not what save us. Otherwise we could parade our own goodness, we could say “Look at all they good I’ve done, I’m definitely getting into Heaven.” That’s not how it works. Salvation is because of everything GOD has done for us. The Bible consistently teaches that “Salvation is determined by faith alone, and demonstrated by faithfulness to obey God’s will alone” (John MacArthur).

You can lose your salvation – Romans 8:38-39 says, “For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Once we are Christ’s, that is it. We are secure. Jesus died for past, present, and future sins. The sins of those who believed before Jesus came, the sins of those who believed while Jesus was on earth, and the sins of those who would live after His resurrection. Jesus conquered sin, every sin believers ever have committed or ever will, and by believing in Him we are no longer slaves to sin or the punishment of it. If there is nothing you can do to earn your salvation, there is nothing you can do to lose your salvation. Were salvation able to be withdrawn, we would have no peace, we would spend our lives in fear that we had not done enough. The Bible has already said that no one is good enough, but God’s grace is sufficient and it is everlasting. Romans 11:29, “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.”

Baptism is necessary for salvation – Again, works based theology that does not line up with scripture and that is what salvation by baptism is. When the proper context is applied to the passages that appear to mention physical baptism alongside salvation, we see that the “salvation by grace through faith” doctrine stands. Because this is such a weighty topic, I’m going to link to an article that is rich with scriptural references. [x]

Confession – Confession is a part of repentance, but confession to man is not required for salvation. John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” God is the one who forgives us and the only one who is able to cleanse us. Our fellow Christians are called to hold us accountable, but the forgiveness of sins as it pertains to eternal life is something only God can absolve.

We are born sinless – The Bible says that we are sinners by nature. Ephesians 2:3 says, “Among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.”

Mary was sinless – Where does the Bible say Mary was sinless? The Bible says, in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” The Catholics claim there are exceptions to this verse, that this is just a generalization, but where does the Bible say that? There is nothing to support that view. There is never an exemption that says “this person didn’t need salvation.” The Bible says that we are all depraved sinners, slaves to the law, and in need of salvation.

Praying to Mary and the saints – The simplest answer I have for this is there is absolutely nothing in the Bible to suggest it is permissible to pray to anyone but God. Mary is a created, sinful being, a human, just like us, just like every saint. There is no power Mary or the saints possess except that which is given to them by God. Neither does the Bible make allowance for praying to angels. Praying to Mary and the saints takes the focus off of God and elevates the creation to a place of reverence reserved for the Creator. “Who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” (Romans 1:25) The veneration of Mary and the saints is idolatry. More about that can be found here [x]

Purgatory – The Bible is clear that there are only two options for the afterlife. Matthew 25:46, “And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” There is no middle ground, no point after death which you can choose Heaven over Hell. Additionally, the idea of sacraments is baseless. You cannot pay off your sin. Not to mention prayers for the dead are useless, as Luke 16 tells us that each person bears the consequences of their decision and one’s eternal destination cannot be altered by others.

The authority of the Pope – “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:6-9) As mentioned before, the different gospel mentioned is specifically a grace plus works doctrine. The Bible is very clear that anyone who touts a message that is contrary to the Bible is not of God. The Pope holds no doctrinal authority over anyone. God’s word, the Bible, is given to everyone the same, and all Christians have the Holy Spirit dwelling inside of them specifically to help, guide, and discern. God’s Word stands, and anyone who preaches contrary to that is preaching a lie, a false doctrine, the road to Hell.

Other “scriptures” – The Catholic church has implemented additional books in their teaching, adding to the Bible what does not belong. They have taken the perfect word of God and added books that contradict and/or detract from the truth of the Bible. The books of the Bible were not something that was chosen lightly, nor was any random text considered scripture. That which is part of the Bible MUST be scripture inspired directly by God Himself. There were guidelines and certain qualifications that had to be met for books to be part of the Bible, and that resulted in 66 books – no more, no less. Psalm 12:6-7 says, “The words of the Lord are pure words, like silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. You shall keep them, O Lord, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.” Additional information on the inspiration/preservation of scripture can be found here [x][x]

From comparing the Bible with the core Catholic doctrine, it is evident that Catholicism is a false religion, the rejection of God’s Word, and the rejection of God’s Word condemns you to Hell. I meekly, humbly, honestly, implore my catholic friends to read the Bible, search for the answers in the scriptures. Don’t take my word on this, it doesn’t matter at all what I say. God’s Word is Truth.

there were times i had wholeheartedly sunken myself into islam, ‘submitting’ completely and trying my best to follow the teachings, better myself, be sincere blah etc. but no matter how much i tried, it never sat perfectly well with me. i had so many questions and all of the answers when i asked came back to ‘yes, but allah is god, he created us and he knows best, so don’t question his eternal wisdom’. and i’d say okay, well i’m already believing in a god that i can’t see, i already have faith in a being i have no evidence of, let me just follow whatever he says to do and maybe one day the benefits will be clear. but my conscience would never let me. if allah said all humans are equal and they are only better than each other in terms of their worship of god, how much more and better they do etc, then why, why are men superior to women? they kept telling me ‘oh islam loves women, women are powerful in islam’ 

but why are men the guardians of women if women are so powerful? why is their inheritance worth less than their male counterparts? why are the dress codes much different -and harsher- for women? why is women’s testimony a joke? because a woman’s testimony counting as less than man’s even by a minuscule is a joke to me, a demeaning one. as if women do not have rational minds. as if women cannot even trust their brains. as if women are more mindless animals than rational, thinking humans. why can men have more than one wife? i always asked my mom and she told me i would make a very jealous wife. but why? why shouldn’t i want the person who has promised to spend their lifetime with me all to myself? why should i have to share? why does allah endorse men’s infidelity? my mom told me that men are more prone to committing zina because their sexual drive is higher than women’s and having more than one wife available to a man at any given time would make a him less likely to commit zina. to be honest, this broke my young heart. to think that my religion would condone my husband cheating on me and i would have to be pious and pretty, even smile at my co wife. how demeaning. how belittling. 

why does allah endorse rape? by bringing forth this twisted perspective that men cannot control their sexual urges - and like an animal- need to mate immediately they feel them, makes it seem like it’s okay for men to use women as a vessel for their pleasure. for their carnal needs and nothing more. why is it that this beloved religion portrays women as nothing more children-bearing-house-keeping-pleasure-giving-weak-willed-vessels to be controlled by men? that a woman’s place does not go beyond the four walls of a home-cell. passed down from man to man in her lifetime, from her father then to a demon disguised as a husband whom she must answer to, as if he is her saving grace and obedience to him will lead her to god? in fact, islam continually broke my heart. it is a sin to be a ‘bad wife’. but islam says that i must obey my husband because he is my guardian. that when i get married, my husband has the most rights over me, even more so than my father. are two people in a marriage not equal? that i cannot argue with my husband because we are both human and equal and my opinion is not less than his? that if i deny him sex, i will be cursed by angels? am i only a pleasure giving vessel? 

it seemed to me that islam was all about submission but it would be better for you if you are a man because men are above women and children. the teachings of islam in terms of women is one i can go on about for days, and it seemed i was going to settle for a life of oppression at the hands of men, endorsed by god almighty so i could reach his perfect little heaven that i also may or may not reach for the slightest of things, even if i faced many trials and tribulations…

god said that he created man with a rational mind so he can think for himself, unlike animals. but why is questioning islam and allah a sin? why is questioning anything about this perfect religion a ticket to hell? and god said that he is the one that shows people the right path and he is also the one that leads them astray. so if he is merciful and loving and benign, then why, why would he create a burning pit of torture? if you are a god at all, why would you create a hell for your subjects if you really are merciful and forgiving? unless you are a bored, narcissistic jerk who wants his balls licked? why would you let people die unjustly in war, let children be blown to bits and die of starvation? why would you let the miseries of the world happen if you had the power to stop them? you mean to tell me that allah is all powerful, there is nothing he cannot do yet he lets people suffer in the most wretched of ways? why does this god who promotes goodness and the spirit of good actions not do anything about the sufferings he can help? what does he do on his throne in heaven, close his eyes and listen to the praises he’s being bestowed and ignore everything else? wtf? what a jerk???

submitting to islam is giving up on life. and i realized that was what i was submitting to. a life of oppression, unhappiness, misogyny, disrespect, mistreatment, silence, anguish. that’s what islam is. it’s like islam was concocted by some elites who wanted most people to suffer in a half-life, sacrificing and submitting with the promise that good things were yet to come in an afterlife, only for the elites to stay powerful and fulfilled and the rest oppressed.or maybe islam was made up by some of the most brilliant story-tellers, an impressive piecing together of bullshit. it makes sense that islam is man made. humans are brilliant at making things up. we love to engage our imaginations. but like all things human, surely there will be flaws. and if you see past the coat of ‘peace, loving, tolerant,’ bulllshit, you will see that islam is deeply flawed. horribly so. 

I wanted to make a villainous oc for shits and giggles.

He doesn’t have a name and his design isn’t set into stone yet.

He is one of flugs inventions who got sold to another villain.Unfortunately the guy he was sold to liked messing around with robots and  he gained conscious and fucked off.He is conflicted by his violent and obedient nature and his desire to just live in peace.So he’s just hanging around town causing local disturbances.
From “WONDER WOMAN: The Official Movie Novelization”

From Book 1 : AMAZON : Chapter 2 - The Island of Themyscira / In the Gods’ Own Time. 

Long ago, when time was new, and all of history was still a dream, the Gods ruled the Earth, Zeus king among them. He reigned supreme, the giver of life. The father of all.

Zeus created beings over which the Gods would rule. Beings born in his image- fair and good, strong and passionate. He called his creation ‘man.’

And mankind was good.

But one of the Gods grew envious of Zeus’s love for mankind and sought to corrupt his creation.

This was Ares, the God of War. Ares poisoned men’s hearts with suspicion, vengeance, and rage. He turned them against one another.

And war ravaged the earth.

So the Gods created us, the Amazons, to influence man’s heart with love and restore peace to the earth.

For a brief time, there was peace, even a unity among us all in the world.

But it did not last.

Novelization by Nancy Holder

Screenplay by Allan Heinberg

Story by Zack Snyder& Allan Heinberg and Jason Fuchs

Directed by Patty Jenkins

Based on the Character Created by William Moulton Marston.

God, why do you let bad stuff happen?

Have you every been angry at God? 

Like when you watch the news and discover that there has been yet another terrorist attack, killing dozens of innocent people. Or when someone you love passes away well before their time, or when you take a look at the abhorrent state of poverty that billions of people are enduring while others have so much wealth. 

I have become full of anger at the injustice and despair that our world squalors in and have often cried out to God demanding, ‘why are you letting this happen?’. But, my question is… should our anger and frustration really be directed at God?

I find that whenever something terrible happens, its always a matter of time before the blame game comes into play.  I mean there are the obvious ones, like yes the terrorists killed those people, they are at fault. But there is often another level of blame that generally gets laid on God. The question of ‘how can He stand by and watch this happen?’, ‘How can He be Love but allow these hate crimes to happen to His children, His creations, His masterpieces?’.

Now, before I continue, I ask for grace, as I completely know that this is one of the main points of debate within the christian community and even outside of christian circles. I am not claiming to know all the answers, I just feel like this has been placed on my heart recently as I have had my mind opened to this by others older and wiser than myself, so please read this kindly. 

The firstly i’d like to break the assumption that everything that happens is Gods will. God’s will for us was displayed in the Garden of Eden. A life in complete connection with Him, a life and world without any trace of sin. He offered us perfection but we chose destruction. God’s will for us did not and does not involve sin, pain, disease, trials, disappointments despair or anything that is not good. If it’s not good, it’s not caused by God. 

Psalms 145v9 says, ‘The Lord is good to all, He has compassion on all He has made’. 

James 1v17 says, ‘Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows’.

Psalms 34v8 says, ‘Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him’.

Psalms 119v68 says, ‘You are good, and what You do is good. Teach me Your decrees’.

These verses prove that God is good all the time, in the middle of all our hardships and anger about the state of our world. Its all well and good to say that He is good, but do we really believe it? The fact is our world is full of woe. Everything is fallen. Biology is fallen, we are still ageing, we get diseases, our bodies decay. This was not God’s intention. Psychology is fallen, we live amid fear and worries, depression and negativity. Our thought lives are easily manipulated by evil. This was not God’s intention. Geo Physics is fallen. There are earthquakes, tsunamis and natural disasters that have the power to take livelihoods, lives and tear a part families. This was not God’s intention. Our choices are often fallen. We constantly choose the world and it’s pretty wrappings over the Goodness of God and His plans for each of our lives. This was not God’s intention, it was sin’s making. Satan is the Prince of this earth right now until Jesus comes back in a blaze of Glory… But, the Lord has given us the authority and placed us here to work through us and bring His hope to the hopeless world. 

There is the phrase used a lot in ‘christianise’ conversations that ‘God always gave us a choice’. This is so true as cliche as it sounds. Just like how we had the freedom to choose in the Garden, We now have the freedom to chose to respond to God, who does not and will not abandon His creation. 

God does not leave us defenceless and weak in the face of the evil that resides in our world. He gave us the cross. The greatest display of Love that the world has ever seen. A way for us to re-kindle the original intention God had for us in the Garden of Eden. One with relationship, a close Father and child bond. This is the complete opposite of abandoning us or walking away because the earth was too far gone. He sent us a Hope, that brought about the age of Grace. 

Let me just clear up some stuff that is often lost in translation when it comes to the age of Grace… It is not a green light for us to waltz around doing what ever we please under the name of ‘grace’ because God will forgive us anyway so we may as well live it up. Wrong. Nope. Stop. What Grace actually does is enable us to become the people God created us to be, and intended us to be. It rips away the veil of sin that separated us from Him and brings us back into His presence once more. 

Grace is also not a magical repellant against hard times. Unfortunately, the world is fallen, and it’s effects will touch all of us in some way shape or form.. But Grace does enable us to endure hard times. After all, real faith trusts a person (God), not the outcome. 

Grace is also not overlooking sin.. it does however, enable us to access God and His forgiveness, His peace, His power and His rest. 

The Age of Grace is now. We have the job of prayerfully, passionately and purposefully influencing our fallen world. We have the duty of bringing heaven to earth like it says in Matthew 6v9 ‘your will be done on earth as it is in heaven…’. God’s will is not the current state of this place. His will is that what it is like in Heaven will be bought down to earth. That is our job as HIs ambassadors on earth, to pray against evil, to rebuke corruption, to lift up the broken, to give the silent a voice, to care for the sick… to be Jesus’s hands and feet on this earth. We are His vessels in this Age of Grace, and our number one weapon against the terror in this world is prayer. 

So, my brothers and sisters… Join with me and take the blame and anger off God. For He is Good all the time, and the evil and corrupt state of this world was not what He wanted for us, His beloved children. The joy, peace and perfect world He really wants for us awaits us in eternity with Him.
