I'm taking a history course this year, and I was supposed to write an essay on the reasons for success of Christianity. Enjoy!

Today, 기독교 is one of the most wide-spread religions of the world. But its history is filled with bloodshed and violence; early Christians had to endure horrific punishments for their faith. There are many stories of martyrs being stoned to death; of Christians’ bodies being used as torches to light Roman feasts; of people being crucified, sometimes upside-down, simply because they refused to renounce 예수님 Christ as their saviour. In the midst of such persecution,...

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera about the last seven days of the life of Christ before His crucifixion. Critics have given it rave reviews. Even some churches have sung its praises. Some have even hailed it as a means of presenting Christ to young people in a way they will understand and accept.

However, no one who examines it in the light of Scripture can be happy with the opera. It is impossible to see the Superstar as anything but one of the "false Christs" of whom the Lord 예수님 Christ warned us (Matthew...

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, 또는 in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." ~ Revelation 20:4

Josie ran.

“Maybe I made a mistake thinking you’d understand!”

“Well maybe I made a mistake
marrying you!”

She ran, not heeding the tempest that tore at her clothes nor caring where she fled to as long as it was someplace far from home. Away from the chaos of her fighting parents and the hopelessness of the choice she was faced with.

“A tumor?”

“...it’s pressing on your brain stem and growing very rapidly. If it isn’t taken care of soon, it will be life-threatening...the surgery, however, would cost 당신 your hearing... Permanently...”


Her 심장 pounded in time with her feet;...

    Matthew 28:19-20 describes how we must spread the Word of 예수님 Christ. We should teach everyone—Christians and nonbelievers alike—about God. Tell them to believe and then strengthen their faith. Try to teach as many places as 당신 can. Teach them the rules and 시 of the Bible. It doesn’t matter what they say about your beliefs, 당신 know you’re right and that God is with you.
    Once the Holy Spirit came at the Pentecost, the Apostles were now full of strength to do what 예수님 told them. First, Peter healed a crippled beggar in the name...

Just to let 당신 know, this is NOT mine. I found it on another website.

My Child,

You may not know me, but I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1

Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.

For 당신 were made in my image. Genesis 1:27

For 당신 are my offspring. Acts 17:28

I knew 당신 even before 당신 were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5

I chose 당신 when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12

You were not a mistake, for all your days are...

Last year, I wrote an 기사 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 의해 millions across the planet. I'm not trying to be super philosophical, but rather share with 당신 my point of view.

A few days ago, I decided to look up a few 비디오 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...

"Alright fine, he was not a good human teacher. Why should I believe he was the Son of God and not a liar?"

The Bible contains many prophecies about the Messiah written hundreds of years before 예수님 was born. These include when He would be born, where He would be born and how he would die.


Jesus fulfilled all of these propecies in his lifetime. Some he could contol, such as entering Jerusalem on a donkey, but many others such as being born in Bethlehem 또는 being betrayed for 30 pieces of silver were completely beyond His control.


Beyond all the prophetic evidence, 예수님 told his followers very...

Little nervous hands tug at the ruffles of a 담홍색, 핑크 수영복 as timid feet step onto the rough, wet surface and begin the long journey to the end of the diving board. Ominous shrieks and splashes echo around her as the cold air hits her skin, and she stops in her tracks. The edge is just five feet away.

“C’mon, Sarah-sweetie!” she hears her father call, his calm voice urging her 앞으로 and rising above the noise that rings in her ears. “You can do it! Just a few 더 많이 steps and then you’ll see me.”

The little girl whimpers and wraps miserable arms around her shivering self. Her legs...

She jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said, “How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?”



The surgeon said, “I’m sorry…We did all we could, but your boy didn’t make it.”



Sally said, “Why do little children get cancer? Doesn’t God care anymore? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?”



The surgeon asked, “Would 당신 like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university.”



Sally asked the nurse...

No one sits with him he doesnt fit in
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him
Coz 당신 want to belong do 당신 go along?
Coz his pain is the price paid for 당신 to belong

Its not like 당신 hate him 또는 want him to die
But maybe he goes 집 and thinks suicide
또는 he comes back to school with a gun at his side
Only kindness from 당신 might have saved his life


No one talks to her she feels so alone
shes in too much pain to survive on her own
the hurt she cant handle overflows to a knife
she writes on her arm wants to give up her life

each 일 she goes is a 일 that she is 메리다와 마법의 숲
fighting the lie that giving up is the way
each moment of courage her own life she saves
when she throws the pills out a hero is made

These are my views and thoughts about being a straight christian, but still supporting gay rights.

I wear a cross. It's a little golden 십자가, 크로스 with a tiny ruby in the middle, being I'm born in July, and that's my birthstone. It's a girt from my mom, and I might pass it on to the 다음 generation when I grow up. It's very special to me. I wear it all the time unless I'm swimming 또는 bathing. I wear it in performances (I'm an actress-to-be and I play violin at school). Even when I was in a play about the ancient greek gods, I wore it under my robes. My whole family is part italian, so we are mostly...

 St. Elizabeth of Hungary
St. Elizabeth of Hungary
Hi guys, since tomorrow we are going to celebrate the birth of 예수님 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 성 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...

It started with “why?”. I thought it was the only 질문 I needed an answer to, but every 질문 led me to another one. Why does he do the things He does? Why did His Son have to die? Why does He 사랑 us, if we don’t deserve it? I had so many 질문 and I learned so much. I felt obligated to get baptized so I got baptized at this church on October 25,2009, but I didn’t feel 100% ready. After that day, however I started to feel 더 많이 and 더 많이 ready. I wanted my faith to be as strong as I could make it until I got re-baptized. I wanted to get baptized with a ready heart, not an...

Answer: Stoning is a method of execution during which a group of people, usually peers of the guilty party, throws stones at the condemned person until he 또는 she dies. Death 의해 stoning was prescribed in the Old Testament Law as a punishment for various sins. Both 동물 and people could be the subjects of stoning (Exodus 21:28), and stoning seems to have been associated with sins that caused irreparable damage to the spiritual 또는 ceremonial purity of a person 또는 an animal.

Some sins that resulted in stoning in the Old Testament were murder (Leviticus 24:17), idolatry (Deuteronomy 17:2–5),...

Happy Reformation 일 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.

Hello everyone so I wanted to let 당신 guys know something because I feel 예수님 telling me to warn his followers about what I been seeing and hearing about and of course am just the messenger and in the end 당신 make the choose to believe it 또는 not but of course i'll show a bit of prove too.

That was the 질문 예수님 asked the women at the well, as 당신 read in John 4:7. Why would 예수님 need man to do him a favor in the first place? Is He not the Almighty God who can do whatever He wants? So why would He need to ask a foreign women to give Him some water? Why would He ask 당신 for a favor today?

You can respond like so many others do and say 'just leave me alone, I don't need you' and he probably would. 당신 look at him just like one of these annoying insurance sales men that really don't want to leave 당신 alone until they got 당신 to either buy something from them 또는 throw something...

I have no problem with homosexuality, and either way, the bible contradicts itself in that regard when it states that 당신 should not lie to people, not even yourself. In other words, being gay is NOT a problem, lying to yourself about being gay, however, is. The bible NEVER states that homosexuality is a sin though. That problem has arisen due to people who are both Christian and afraid of something different. These people tend to have issues with different races as well, proving that it ISN'T the bible that states "homosexuality is a problem" so much as people who have high positions (or think...
