‘Jesus’ comes from a shortening of the Hebrew version of the name Joshua, while 'Christ’ simply means 'the anointed one.’ To make this clearer to modern Christians, I propose a new Bible translation where Jesus is referred to only as “oily Josh”

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
people on tumblr who say you believe in jesus, listen to me. younger christians, struggling christians, I’m thinking specially of those who have believed in God for a long time but who are just beginning to warm to politics and social justice: you gotta hear this. you can’t have jesus if you’re not fighting sin. that means you can’t have jesus and witchcraft. you can’t have jesus and your own way with your sexuality. you can’t have jesus and your hatred for those who disagree with you politically. you can’t have jesus and a fun little heresy. you can’t have jesus and your own free decision on what to do about your dysphoria. “by no means! how can those who have died to sin still live in it?” “so glorify God in your body.” following jesus is not a salad bar where you can pick which of his teachings you like and which don’t suit you. now, for those who pursue Jesus despite the sacrifice, you will gain christ, and with him, everything else, eternal reward. jesus told a story about someone who found a treasure in a field and sold everything he owned to buy that field. that looks crazy to a world that can’t see the treasure. it looks like you’re giving up everything for nothing. but if you want to gain the most beautiful glorious treasure on earth, you have to surrender everything else you hold dear to his will. if you’re struggling with same-sex attraction or dysphoria or temptation and you feel like tumblr’s worldview is the only comforting one, reach out to someonewho will tell you the truth. the people of jesus need each other. talk to me, i want to help and ive been there, specifically ive struggled with dysphoria (albeit mild) and temptation with sexual purity. but this is life and death and you have to think about your beliefs before you accept whatever’s easiest. and remember, there is no more condemnation for those who are in christ jesus.
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.”
the media out here trying to frame the people fighting literal nazis as basically nazis themselves. even going as far as to give us SIMILAR FUCKING NAMES AS OUR OPPRESSORS? JESUS CHRIST. [calling antifas the alt-left]
you can tell what fucking side they’re on, they uphold nazism, that’s why they’re always on the side of the nazis. They don’t care about justice. They don’t care about what is moral and good. They care about white supremacy.
why are they always reporting on how good and clean cut literal nazis look? white supremacy. why are they always reporting on how calm and down-home nazi families are? white supremacy. why do they refuse to call literal nazis out as nazis? white supremacy.
why are they always framing antifas as the violent reactionaries who have no reason to be upset? white supremacy. why are they always framing antifas as ignorant unclean and inhuman? white supremacy. Why are they always framing antifas as against helping people? white supremacy.
-The Pre-Hamilton Lin Manuel Miranda singing a song that’s far out of his range. -The Pre WWII setting of the musical. (Any other situation, I would hate this) -That orchestra though. -The singers leading him into the song and their perfect pitch. -The hum of the VHS camera. - “YOUR CUP OF POISON!” -The idea that simply putting someone in white clothing is the same as them being Jesus. -Why did they cast him as Jesus and not Judas?
I just love this video, and nothing will convince me not to. Maybe one
day I’ll release my full cover of “Agony”, from Into The Woods.
I ask any Christian to help in spreading this info
Currently the name of Christ and his disciples are in the midst of being slandered by most media coverage in the western world today. The lastest of these is the new game from one of the worlds largest video game publishers Ubisoft, in their new title Far Cry 5.
Brief synopsis: Far Cry 5 is taking place in a area called “Hope County”, a small town in Montana that’s being taken over by crazy cultists. Why does this involve Christianity? Because Ubisoft thought it would be cute to make these cultists Christian.
Boom: right there, John 1:4. And not only have they defaced Christian scripture by doing this, notice that cross? Thats a bastardized Catholic cross. Which, as more popular posts has seemed to have tried to link this to Nazism:
I can only dare to ask, do these same people bash any on any other culture of religion that uses the swastika? Do they bash Hindus?
No, they don’t. So why is it all of a sudden okay for them to take the Catholic Cross and call it a Nazi logo, and not the actual Nazi logo its self?
Twitter and Tumblr users all round seem oh so happy to kill “rednecks” and “christian” all them same though too.
Now, you might be saying: “Hmm these people seem to be talking about Neo-Nazi’s, not Christianity?”
Well, if these people had even bothered to watch the trailer, you’d learn that the cult in the game is the farthest thing from neo-nazis, in fact, much of their membership is diverse: Here are some actual screen caps from the trailer:
Here’s some BLACK members of this cult taking a WHITE women to be drowned in a river
And here are some more black individuals being part of the cult. The point I’m getting at here is that these people were not excited about this game kill nazis, they were excited to kill Christians. All they saw were Christian themes and they got the desire to kill, kill, kill, regardless of race. They are only calling them neo-nazis to help publicly justify their desire.
This is only more proof of the anti-Christian sentiment in modern media today. If this had been any other faith, Ubisoft would be facing huge backlash, but because its Christianity, its okay.
So please fellow Christians, re-blog this to spread awareness. And at the very least, re-blog to expose this hypocrisy and blatant creation of false racial tensions.
I worry that the loudest voices in the church about LGBTQA+ experiences are white gay men.
I also dislike the phrase “s*me-g*nder attraction” instead of LGBTQA+ because it excludes me and people like me from the discussion completely. When I go looking for LGBTQA+ resources in the church, that’s all I find, and asexuality and aromanticism might as well not even exist to anyone but me. It’s a rly sad, hard feeling. I don’t experience s*me g*nder attraction, but I also don’t experience opposite gender attraction. I’m not straight. I belong in the LGBTQA+ community. I have questions. I want resources and representation and I want to have something to show my parents when I explain who I am.
Mom: okay so, Laurence’s pose is a reference to Michelangelo’s La Pietà which makes him the Christ figure of the story since his death (his skull) is the foundation of the Church. Then, as you explained to me, Ludwig is a reference to a demon in Buddhist hell and let’s leave it at that. The Orphan of Kos is ‘the son of (a) god’ and can be considered Christ in his own right even if seen from a different angle since the focus seems to be on the Old Hunters’ sin more than himself as a character.
Me: pretty much.
Mom: Which means that the Hunters are… the Jews who killed the son of God. But then, why is Maria named after the mother of Christ if she is one of those committing the sin? Shouldn’t she be Eve or something like that?
Me: I think it’s because she plays a motherly role as the Doll and her hunter-self trapped in the nightmare still protects both the Orphan and Mother Kos but- BUT the Eve allegory is interesting. After all, the original sin was curiosity on Eve’s part represented by the temptation of the tree of knowledge and there’s a lot of emphasis on the word ‘curiosity’ in Maria’s dialogue…
Mom: And it’s not just Eve, also Pandora. It’s an archetype, it’s always the woman’s fault.
Me: Yup, but Bloodborne is 100% gender equal. That’s why some of the things we discussed regarding the setting and its similarity with the victorian era don’t work. Maria and Gehrman are portrayed in similar ways, they both preside a dreaming world, they both step up from a state in which you wouldn’t expect them to fight back to kick your ass (he’s old, she’s dead) and they both protect a Great One out of guilt. The game places the blame on both, and Kos cursed not just the two of them but all hunters just like God punished not just Adam and Eve but mankind as a whole. I always found the wording of the curse itself very fitting because since a child is the most important thing to a Great One, that’s exactly what Kos decided to target with her curse. “Each wretched birth will plunge each child into a lifetime of misery.”, not unlike the Christian God doomed Adam and Eve’s descendants (us) to sufference, illness etc.
Mom: Sounds legit. The sins of the forefathers… all you need to wrap this up now are the apple and the snake, I guess.
Me: That’s exactly what Simon, one of the characters in the DLC, says. The forefathers part I mean. Not sure about the apple, it could be an allegory for Insight because of the whole ‘apple of knowledge’ thingy but… mmmh. They already used snakes in a similar way in Dark Souls, literally. The two primordial serpents, so I doubt they would repeat the motif.
[a few days later…]
I found this. It’s from one of the exclusive images released by IGN when the game was still in alpha.
Guess what weapon scales the best with Arcane. It’s the Kos parasite. The weapon you get from re-enacting the original sin of the Bloodborne world: killing the sweet child of Kos.
Timelineartist or however this meme is called got inspired by @malengilblog `s meme thing ;3 and yes, i confess that the unicorn`s horn look like something nsfw, but i noticed it later ps: i changed a thing in the letters because it was hard to read
God is Good! God’s Promises are never wavering. No matter how bad it looks, or impossible or unlikely it seems to come. It will. God is way too powerful to just back out on His Promises. Stop giving into fear of failure. Start leaning on God’s Strength and not your own. It is by God’s Grace and Strength you are saved and helped, not yours. Fear God, Love God more, put everything inside and outside in His Hands and invite Him into your everyday life.
