Last year, I wrote an article where I talked about Carrie Fisher's death, because I thought it would be an interesting idea to talk about, especially to close off the year. So, I decided to do the same, but this time, I want to talk about a topic that's been heavily debated by millions across the planet. I'm not trying to be super philosophical, but rather share with you my point of view.

A few days ago, I decided to look up a few videos about souls and the afterlife. I look up a video that talked about theories of what could happen. Most of them seemed reasonably beliveable, except for the last one, which utterly terrified me: that after I die, there's nothing. I mean, I was afraid of it before, but the reason why I was both terrified and incredibly depressed that night is because of the implication of being completely unconscious for the rest of eternity. That being, that you don't know what happens after your death. I don't mean that you're unaware of your soroundings, but that you won't ever know what happens to the people around you, the world, etc.

The Cross & The Fish - The Symbols Of Christianity
Happy Reformation Day everyone! Brothers and sisters, let us rejoyce for today we commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. Exactly on this very day, 500 years ago, in a city of Wittenberg, Germany a certain Augustinian monk has made a history. His name was Martin Luther, and he has truly reformed the Church. It was on October 31,1517, at the eve of the All Saints' Day, or All Hallows' Day back then to be exact, when Martin Luther has made public the proclamation of true Christianity aka the 95 Theses posted on the church door. It was the day that has forever change the Church. Christianity has once again returned to the basic teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. From that day forward the Reformation has begun, creating the variety of reformed churches all over the world, including my very own Church of England, and all the other churches within the Anglican Communion, such as the Episcopal Church for instance. The Lutheran Church was formed soon afterwards, back in 1529. The very same year a term Protestantism came into use, deriving from the Protestation at Speyer, Germany. In the years to come many different denominations within the Protestantism have been...

Behold!
Hi guys, I would like to write my opinions about these two films as well as a small review about both films about Jesus Christ.

The Passion of the Christ

I first saw this film when my brother borrowed the DVD until I decided to download it, it has a lot of brutality and it was so agonising that I dare continue to watch it! But on the other hand, I guess Mel Gibson wanted realism for this film to which I can't blame him for that.
The one thing that I felt very disturb was the scene when a scarecrow came and stab into one of the thieves' eyes! God, that scene must be incredibly scary and disturbing that it gave temporarily nightmares.

Jesus of Nazareth

Now, this miniseries is really long about 4 hours! But, I love how straightforward the series is, right up from Jesus's birth to His crucifixion! Despite the duration, I enjoy watching it and has some big names in it. Like Christopher Plummer, Robert Powell, Olivia Hussey and Laurence Olivier.

St. Elizabeth of Hungary
Hi guys, since tomorrow we are going to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, I'm going to write down a list of my favourite saints. Ready?

1. St. Elisabeth of Hungary

Born a Hungarian princess, she was betrothed to Grand Duke Louis of Thuringia to secure a political ties with Germany and Hungary. She sympathised the poor outside her castle and sadly to say, she died at the age of 24 and was canonised a few years later.

2. St. Francis of Assisi

When I first watch bits of Stigmata, I did a little research of it and I found out that it is associated with St. Francis, I was fortunate to see the 1961 biopic of the young saint and his life.

3. St Wenceslas of Bohemia

Yes, the Good King Wenceslas of the famous Christmas carol, I was very blessed to go to Prague, Czech Republic and that was when I know more about him. The Wenceslas Square is also the site of the peaceful Velvet Revolution, it's also attracts millions of tourists everywhere! Are you going to sing this for your caroling this year?

I am an outright, outspoken, Christian. I believe the Bible to be completely true, I believe Jesus to be the Christ, I do not condone or tolerate
~Unmarried sex
~Foul language
~Drugs
~Alcohol
~Darwinian Evolution
~Homosexuality
~Abortion
And much more. I am very proud of my Faith, and have NO regrets about its stances. You will not hear me say “I agree with everything Christian… except this” and when it comes to a romantic relationship, I see it as not just a joining of people as one, but a union of responsibility by both to keep the other strong in their Faith.

… But sometimes I just want to SLAP some of us idiots. I mean, look, all Christians don’t act like this, and while I don’t have a statistic for it, I’d like to hope and believe the majority doesn’t act like these people, but I’ve found myself looking at Christians from the humble beginnings of my church to the popularity of DVD’s and house-hold names saying, and promoting, the DUMBEST, most OFFENSIVE, and DESTRUCTIVE, things to our Faith I’ve heard of. I say that because while I’m very sure there are people who claim to be Christians...

The unexpected violent storm was frightening enough as it tossed the fragile boat with the twelve gasping disciples. Then the apparition of a man walking on the water as on solid ground just made things worse. It could only be a spirit-death itself, perhaps, coming to get them...

The reassuring words of Jesus, "It is I, do not be afraid" needed to be verified. Peter thought he could put the Lord to the test. He did not realize that now he was the one being tested. His faith was being tested. And it was soon obvious that he was failing the test. He daring request, "Tell me to come to you across the water!" was about to cost him his very life. Good for him that Jesus was at hand. So him his very life. Good for him that Jesus was at hand. So Peter was saved-a seasoned, strong fisherman rescued by a carpenter/preacher who had seldom seen the sea in his life!

The moment Jesus climbed the boat, "the wind died down!" (Mt 14:32) Thus, that night Peter and his partners added yet another memorable, incredible event to the already long list of unforgettable experiences they had gone through since the day they had met the young rabbi from...

I know there are tons of different views of Christ, and I respect that. I also understand that not everyone will love Christ as I do. However, I would to share my passion for Him. But who is Christ to me? How does He make me feel? I'll tell you.

Jesus Christ is my Savior. I see Him as a symbol of both Freedom and Salvation. He also represents individuality--He was unique, He was different. He showed me that being different is not bad, but also that others will in fact hate you just for doing so.

Unlike your average human, Jesus never once brought judgement or condemnation. And even though He could have easily just said "To Hell with you" to us Sinners, He didn't. He came down to this Hell-bound world to give us a chance at a life with God.

Now does this mean He wants Perfection? Does He want us to be super-perfect robots? NO. No, He doesn't.

He knows whats in our hearts, He knows that we will never reach perfection. Why? This world and everything in it will never know perfection. But that's OK, we don't NEED perfection. Jesus covers that.

Just some Christian pick-up lines that I picked up at a date night at Youth Group a few weeks ago.

1) You're looking for a knight in shining armor? It just so happens that I'm wearing the armor of God!

2) God said that you were made in his image, and boy, was He right!

3) Is this the transfiguration? Because you're glowing!

4) Moses parted the Red sea, but baby, ain't nothing parting us!

5) You must be a fisher of men, 'coz you just reeled me in!

6) Now I know why Solomon had 700 wives... Because he never met you.

7) You float my ark

8) The word says 'Give drink to those who are thirsty, and feed the hungry'; how about dinner?

9) You are perfect, except with all the sin.

10) I went on a beach mission but all I ended up doing was mission you.

11) Unfortunately I cant perform miracles and I've only got enough bread and fish for 2 people.

Faith gasped and then opened her eyes. That was the thing about the cancer. It made you have difficulty breathing sometimes. She looked around, and saw a very sad Chiwen, and a worried Esther. She smiled when she saw Essie. "Hey Essie," Faith said, her voice barely a whisper. Esther bit her lip and went over to her, kneeling down by the bed.
"Faith?"
"Mmm?"
"What's it like?"
"What's what like?"
"Being seriously ill. Is it scary, or are you okay with it?"
"A bit of both. I mean, I know where I'm going-" Esther interrupted.
"Heaven?" Faith nodded her head, then continued.
"-but I'm also scared."
"Why?"
"I dunno. It's just...when you're sick like this, you just get scared." Faith's eyes burned with tears, and she shook her head as one escaped and rolled down her cheek. Esther saw this, and her heart was filled with compassion for her friend. Esther held her close, just like Faith had done to her when she was going through a hard time. Faith knew she could cry now, so she did.

Blip...blip...blip. That was the only sound that Faith heard. She was really scared, but she knew that God was with her always.

Here's what had happened. The other day, she had been hanging out with Chiwen, when she suddenly collapsed. Chiwen was smart and called the hospital before freaking out. Faith's last thought before she blacked out out was Esther. Esther on the plane. Then she blacked out.

She dreamed. She dreamed that Esther and everyone she loved just fell down around her, each just dropping like flies. Then she woke up. She found herself in the hospital. Numerous tests showed that she had cancer. The deadliest cancer. And it was quite late in the game. She had had it for months. Faith was told she only had a month to live. Her family was there when she got the news. her little brother, Jonathon, had hugged her tight. Faith looked up and let a few tears spill down her cheeks. She knew God had a reason for everything, but she couldn't see this reason.

After two weeks in London, Esther said goodbye to her cousin. It wasn't really hard, because she just did not like her cousin at all. She was looking forward to going back to Australia for one reason. Her name was Faith. She knew faith would be waiting at the airport for her when she returned. She hoped she would like the jeans she had bought. Oh, yeah, and the present she had got for Faith as well. She had picked up a gift for each of them. For Chi-chi, it was a mini Bible. Frankly, she didn't know what else to get her. And for Faith, she got her the all the DVDs from the series The Chronicles of Narnia. She knew Faith absolutely loved that series.

The plane trip went smoothly, and she soon heard the announcement that they were going to land in ten minutes. It seemed soon to her, because she had been sleeping most of the trip. She thought of Ch-chi again. She shifted a bit. She knew Chiwen had been 'praying' for her, whatever that was. She wasn't sure about Faith, though. She clutched the little bag with the gifts in them as they landed.

As Esther wandered the streets of London with her cousin, she thought of Faith and Chiwen. Chiwen, very... very...well... persistent. Esther couldn't think of another way to describe her. Yes, she did love Chi-chi very much, but she sometimes not on Esther's nerves. She was constantly trying to bring her to this 'Christ'. She did admire Chi-chi for her persistence, but she did it so often, it felt as is Esther were being nagged. I that's all Christians did, Esther didn't want any part of it.

Faith, an angel in disguise if there ever was one. She did love Faith ever so much. She knew that bestie groups of three weren't meant to have a favourite bestie, but she couldn't help but favourite Faith. She was so... everything. She was everything that Essie loved. She put up with Faith's temper tantrums, she did things with Essie, even if she wasn't feeling up to it. She had helped Faith back on her feet when her grandmother had died of a heart attack. She was just always there for Essie. Essie knew she was a Christian, and, if all Christians were like that, she definitely wanted a part of that. Faith never nagged her like Chiwen did.

There were once three girls who were best friends. They had known each other since they were all 1 day old. One was named Faith (meaning believing without seeing). Another was named Esther (meaning shining star) and and the other was named Chiwen (meaning persistent). Faith and Chiwen were Christians, and they both wanted to bring Esther to Christ. They tried discussing it with Esther, but each time, Esther said she didn't really want to talk about it. Chiwen always tried to keep going, but faith always stopped her.

One day, Esther went overseas, so it was just Faith and Chiwen. They decided to discuss how to bring Esther to Christ. Well at least Chiwen did, so Faith talked it over.
"Hey, Faith?" asked Chiwen, munching on a carrot stick.
"Mmm?" replied Faith, whilst washing the dishes.
"How do you think we can bring Essie to Christ?"
"We can't."
"What? Waddaya mean?" By this time, Chiwen had gotten up, and grabbed an apple. She loved food as much as her besties.

Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lost secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance. - Psalm 16:5-6

Dear Child,
Lots of people think that being a Christian means missing out on the good stuff. They think I'm the father who makes you ride you bike to school on your sixteenth birthday when everyone else gets a new car.
That's not Me. I have a wonderful inheritance Read My will and learn that I've promised you the best slice of life. I've made you, so I know what makes you happy. I know you better than you know yourself.
So hang in there and trust Me. I've got something great for you, and it's not a rusty bicycle, I assure you. I'm the One Who knows how to bless you.

Your Maker,
God

I call myself a Luciferian most of the time, I can call myself a Christian and a Satanist sometimes, but if I feel more close to God, I'll probably call myself a Christian, or if I feel closer to Lucifer, I'll call myself a Satanist, but in the the end I'm a Luciferian.

No, I don't call myself a Luciferian because I love Lucifer more than God. I love God and Lucifer equally. I see Lucifer as what he truly was and still is, before Lucifer had fallen from Heaven.
I believe that God is the one and only God, though, and who had created Adam and Eve and who had vowed to protect us.

I believe that Lucifer wasn't evil and was good, great, as brilliant as God! Lucifer loved us, perhaps a bit too much and made a mistake by trying to overthrow God and didn't think twice, but hey, we all learn from our mistakes though right?
I create my own religion, Lucifer and God equally good (God might have been a bit better). Lucifer still protects us along with God.

Right now, I'm on Lafayette and Astor waiting to hit you up for change so I can get high. I'm taking a walk through the Rose Garden with George Bush. I'm helping Donald Rumsfeld get a good night's sleep...I was in that cave with Osama, and on that plane with Mohamed Atta...And what I want you to know is that your work has barely begun. And what I want you to trust is the efficacy of divine love if practiced consciously. And what I need you to believe is that if you hate who I love, you do not know me at all.

This does NOT belong to me. I heard it at a church camp. It comes from a book somewhere. May be slightly different.

As fellow believers, what is the best thing we can do for one another? A teacher once asked this to his Bible class. Some of the suggestions were: being a friend to someone, sticking up for the bullied kid and handing out Bible tracts.

But a point was made that you wouldn't necessarily have to be a Christian to do these things. Then a girl spoke up and suggested praying for someone. They discussed this idea and found that it was the best answer.

Now why is praying the best thing we can do for someone? It is because we are offering them God's help, instead of human help. There is only so much humans can do, but God can do anything. So pray for a friend today!

(This is a lil...inspirational/moral speech about what a Human truly is.)

I'm sure there's a lot of people who often wonder what it means to be human--what a human IS exactly. Some might say we're unimportant, not special, not amazing. And even possibly (dare I say) nothing more than just a of bunch mutated wild beasts that came from the animal kingdom, who are only capable of destroying themselves beyond any hope of being redeemed of our dark side.

Well, that's not true--and IDC HOW many of your so-called "facts" tell me otherwise, it's all a lie. Human's have both Good and Evil in them, and it wasn't always like this. When God made Human's, we were never meant to know Evil. We weren't destined for destruction, anger, greed, hatred, bitterness, or even Death.

You see, we were destined for much more than this. As Human's, we are made to love others and to BE loved. But because of Adam, Eve and Satan, we have Sin to get in the way of our Truth reasons to be made Human. Though we may be living such an Evil world, that doesn't matter. That doesn't mean we should give up, give in and be Evil like the rest--all Human's have a responsiblity to fight...

Cynthia (otherwise known as Cindy), lay down on her bed and stared up at the ceiling. Her bestie, Rachel, had invited her to youth group, and Cindy had enjoyed every moment of it. She had heard all about 'accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour', and it all sounded a bit cliche.

As she stared up, she saw people moving around on the roof, and she heard voices. She saw a young man, about 30 years of age. He had blood dripping everywhere. He was obviously exhausted, carrying that big log on his back.
She saw the guards march the man towards a hill, and then saw two other men carrying logs on their backs. But there was something special about the man with the crown of thorns on his head. Wait. What?! A crown of thorns. Ouch. That must REALLY hurt.
They arrived at the hill, and she was curious, so she followed. The roof went blank for a minute, and then she saw the man lying on the log, and heard his cries as nails were driven deeper and deeper into his hands. The she saw herself with a mallet, hammering a nail into one of his hands. 'No!No!' she screamed, but there was nothing she could do about it.

You've been waiting here for me,
though you don't push me at all.
You know exactly what I need.
But You won't shove it down my throat.

You've been on my mind all day long.
I pretend You're not even there,
because I know my thoughts are wrong.
But I'll just keep pretending anyway.

When I finally call out to You
You come and tell me everything's okay.
You take time to make me new
though You know I'll just push You away.

I doubt I'll ever learn
This world's too big for me on my own.
Each time I try I just get burned.
But You're the One who will heal my wounds.

Just stop answering my calls
so that I will fall on my face.
So I can't get through it all
and I'll cry out for Your Grace.

So that I feel like You're gone
and You're never coming back.
So I'll know that I'm wrong
and beg for You to come back.

I can't keep hurting You like this

Remember how I stated that I had gave up on womankind? Well I'm still "iffy" on the marriage thing but here is where this whole thing started:

2 years ago, a Vietnamese girl came to my church. The second I saw her...I was like "Whoa...she is HOOOT!" XD well I said that in my head, not aloud. Her name was Tran but she went by Natalie--both cute names. Anyways...I was scared as crap to speak to her, or even sit next to her. I finally got the guts to say something...it was usually just small words like "How are you?" "Whats your name?" blah blah blah...then we started talking on Facebook and that was cool. I started to really like her every tIme we talked and stuff. But...idk--I had always felt like I was getting on her nerves or something. So then her birthday came around and I wanted to give her something really awesome: it was a bracelet with an "N" on it for her name and a pair if ear rings. She acted and seemed like she loved it. But then...the next week at church, she wasn't there :( So I kept checking every week for to show up again...but no, she had apparently LEFT the church.

Here's a lil something I'd like to talk about here: Science

As lots of you know, I'm a Christian and all that. And well..IMHO, Science itself was never bad or wrong. I like it, so I have nothing against Athiests. It's just that sometimes they go too far with it. I mean, making medicine and trying to help people--that's great. That's AWESOME. But...when they use it to clone and do other things that no human should ever have access to, that's when it's bad. And like, why? Why is it that Atheists trust Science? It's flawed like we all are. We are all imperfect, and science was made BY imperfect people. So..why? Why would u trust something that's just as flawed as u are?
