we are what we build

Look, I get it.

I get why you don’t want to believe in God. I get it.
You’ve seen the Christians on street corners who are screaming about going to hell. 
You’ve seen Christians turn a blind eye.
You’ve seen Christians give really crappy answers when you’re hurting.

You’ve seen Christians in church ignore the new people.
You’ve seen Christians avoid you in the store.
You’ve seen Christians be downright hurtful.
You’ve seen Christians be just plain mean.

Here’s the thing.

Christians aren’t Christ.

I get it. Christians give Christ a bad reputation. I do it. I swear and listen to music and mutter words that would make my grandma and my Jesus blush. I’m mean. I avoid people. I get it. 

I get it. We base our beliefs on what we see. We build our perceptions on our experiences. We base our opinions on what we’ve learned.

If you’ve had a bad experience or 47 bad experiences with Christians,
I’m sorry.

This isn’t one of those posts that is going to end with the typical, “we’re all sinners and that’s why Jesus died for us”.
although that is true - that’s not the point of this.

What I’m saying is that Christians are going to disappoint you. Christians are not always going to represent Christ. Christians are going to hurt you. Christians are going to not look like Christians all of the time. 

But are you following a Christian or are you longing to follow Christ?

Are you getting to know Christians and doing things how they do them or are you getting to know who God is and why exactly He sent Jesus?
Are you spending your time pouring over Instagram and trying to match your journaling bible designs to the ones you see there?
Or are you spending your time pouring over the Bible and trying to match your life to the ones detailed in the stories told there?

What I’m trying to get at is this:
Christians will misrepresent God. Christians will mess up, we’ll make mistakes. We’ll say the wrong things. Because we’re not God. We’re not good at being God. We’re good at being humans. We were created as humans, and God is God.

God is good at being God. God won’t misrepresent himself. God doesn’t mess up. He doesn’t make mistakes. He doesn’t say the wrong thing. He doesn’t leave. He doesn’t break his promises. He doesn’t let you down.
Christians are meant to follow God. Christians are meant to become more like Jesus, not other Christians. 

If you’re skeptical about this whole thing, I get it. But if you’re willing, please seek to learn who God is and not who Christians can make him out to be.

I’ve been slowly rewatching Supergirl s1, and the most recent episode was ‘Manhunter’  now I really want a fic where Kara and Lucy weren’t able to save Alex.

For, whatever reason, Alex and J’onn were being transported separately.  Maybe it’s protocol to keep alien and human prisoners apart, maybe they wanted a stronger transport for J’onn.  Whatever.

Either way, when Kara and Lucy stop the transport, only J’onn is inside, and they have no idea where Alex is.

Well, they know she’s at Cadmus, but they now have no way to rescue her.

When J’onn goes on the run as a fugitive, it’s to find Alex, not Jeremiah.

Only, if he had succeed he would have found both, because as soon as Jeremiah learnt that Alex was being brought to Cadmus, he made sure she was working with him.

Maybe Jeremiah lies to Alex at first, letting her believe that he is still truly a prisoner, being forced to work.  Maybe he’s upfront and tells her that the work is for good and everything.

It doesn’t really matter which, because Alex refuses to work for Cadmus either way.

Until Jeremiah is convinced that Alex may need to be ‘persuaded’.

And Alex is brainwashed.

Alex is programmed to be a sleeper agent and sent back to the DEO.

Jeremiah pushes her - passed out, beat up, and emaciated - into Kara’s arms when he lets her and Mon-El go.

Ok I'm now in the middle of season 3 and when I see Anakin I think is not the same Anakin in the movies. I like him more now. And no ways that Anakin in sith revenge is the same Anakin from clone wars

Anakin in the movies is still valid. I like to think that how he was in was in TPM and AoTC acted as development into how he would behave in the series. 

And then, it would lead onto his attitudes and behaviors during RoTS. 

The Clone Wars series does not exist to disregard what happened in the prequels. Instead, it strengthens what was already built there.

like, i know that the world is in a scary place rn. and im scared like everyone, but im also in awe of the world and im fascinated to see what the future brings. my dad once compared this era to the industrial era (at least the american industrial era of like the 1900s and 1910s). like we look back adn we can see the terrible shit that happened in factories. but it happens time and again like this. technology leaps ahead of society and society is left to scramble to play catch-up. it leads to political and social strife, conflicts between generations, all the stuff we see today. but then we can look to the past and say “they made it through, this has all happened before. something good can come of this if we make it that way. this isnt just these terrible times, this is clay we can mold”

and i know that that doenst take away the fear and anger that people have. people on all sides have it, even if a lot of people respond to their fear and anger in hurtful and awful ways. im not apologizing for them. its terribly what theyre doing. but i feel like everyone on this planet rn is feeling the fear and anger and uncertainty. technology has advanced so much, and everything is changing. for some people this change looks to them like theyre losing a way of life. for others it gives them the chance to realize that they arent as alone as they thought, a chance to make a positive difference in the world and to carve out a space where they can feel accepted.

the world is changing, and while we cant just lie back and let things happen, this isnt the first time that this /has/ happened. we can make it through. humans are nothing if not resilient, history has proven that. we will find a way. and just imagine what the future could bring when we do.

its this kind of thing that makes me excited to be alive in these times, even as scary as they are. someday theres gonna be a new generation of people out there, and theyre gonna look to us and say “you were there when the world changed, what was it like? what did you do? what did you see?” and i hope to hell i have a good answer for them. i hope to hell that they see what comes out of this as a positive change. that they see that we saw the world afraid and angry and uncertain and alone, and we reached out a hand and helped each other and built something better out of it. 

We finally upgraded, 1.6 to 1.11

For three years we have been building the mountain project in 1.6 to keep the same aesthetic of screenshot and block usage.  Recently, due to issues with 1.6, we decided to upgrade to 1.11 which we did today. What does this mean?

We have 7 more builds to come in our main town, these will be screen capped using 1.6 and Chocapic V3.  The final builds (The mine, a few mine buildings and some ruins) will be screen capped using 1.11 and chocapic V6. The newer shader has far better lighting and water but more fog.  I hope this change won’t be annoying to our long term followers.  We probably won’t be going through the map and updating old builds with new blocks.

This is what the upgraded server now looks like, note crisper light and cleaner water, what do you think of the upgrade?

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question but, how would communism work without at least a small form of government to distribute everything well? I can understand not needing laws n stuff but how would the actual distribution of things happen without some body to take care of that. This isn't an attack I'm just curious

The people know what they need, they don’t need a government to tell them what they need. When the people own the means of production, they need not worry about government approval or counting, they simply ask each other: do you need this, and others will answer back if they do or not.

When a government owns the means of production, despite potentially representing the people, they can never know what the people need as much as the people know what they need.

And again. No. I don’t think anarchocommunism can happen over night, it’s the end game, to eliminate all nation states, people can still organize under anarchy, that’s not a government in the same sense of what we have today. Today we have states of oppression and exploitation, and states that are exploited by these, elimination of nation states is a must for this to be possible, but theres so much more that needs to happen before we can get here.
This is why I’m a huge advocate for a massive education overhaul and greater access to it for all. We need people working on these problems.

The mathematicians of the past had no idea they would give the groundwork for the computers we have today, just as we have no idea what society we can build with all our work.

I choose anarchocommunism as my endgame, because I feel it is the best result for all people’s interests currently. Perhaps someone may come up with a system even better than this with enough people researching, and studying how to better the world, and working towards these goals. I just don’t know, that’s for tomorrow to decide.

All I can do today is help my community and provide resources, and work towards changing the society, of which i live, in any way possible: for the better.

My sissy pussy.

So I been getting asked and I think I will post some pics of my sissy cunt tonight if you all want it.
To show it’s real and I’m real and cause well I’ve had numerous requests.

No face tho as I said before. I have almost a stable of repeat business from friends. Don’t want to jeopardize any real fun for them or me.

Ohh and note to the toys before. I don’t go past my 9-12 inch toys if I play on getting real cock later. If I gape to hard I don’t feel it as much from them at that moment and most important it’s not as good a duck for them.

Except for one friend. He likes to watch me ride my biggest toy. He loves my pussy sloppy as hell. He’s got a smaller cock 5 inches but I love making him feel good and building him up.

Sissies always build up your lovers. You never know if they have friends with Huge cocks. Plus. That’s how we convert them to sissy lovers. We do what women don’t. We please. We build. We treasure cock

Scott: gotta keep moving forward together. If you get scared, just hold our hands and we’ll continue to lead the way. Keep venturing on. 

so let it begin like this:

i. we’re two broken pieces,
shattered from different corners of the earth,
and scattered in the wind.

ii. we find each other, and we find ourselves there too.

iii. we do not rebuild what was lost.
we build new, we build bigger, we build better.
we make the past envy the future.

iv. my body's a temple to you,
but yours is my sanctuary.
in you, i find all the faith i never had alone.

v. we are whole again.
we are no longer each other’s crutches;
we are what inspires our legs to walk -
to be together, and walk in stride.

vi. i still need you and you still need me,
but we are not victims anymore.
we are survivors. we are victors.

so let it end like this:

i. your footsteps aren’t there, but you’re with me.
your heartbeat has stopped, but you’re still alive.
your hand isn’t in mine, but i still know the way.

ii. we don’t need to be gods to be immortal.
