What you see above, those are the “Pillars of Creation”, they are made out of dust and gas. The tallest one is seven times the size of the earth. I cannot grasp this.
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” - Genesis 1:1
I cannot actually begin to comprehend this, God created everything, everything. All of the planets, all of the stars, all of the solar systems, all of the universe. The Pillars of Creation are only a tiny part of a massive nebular thing. That was all created by one God. Do you fully comprehend that? Because I sure cant… It blows my mind and leaves me in awe.
Next time it is a cloudless night and you are some distance away from a large city take the time to look up at the stars and think. All of that was brought into existence by the voice of God. And not only that, but it was created for us.
I will forever be humbled by the size and overwhelming beauty of space and its Creator.
i do not understand straight edge tattoos… you are still letting drugs and alcohol control your life and decisions by putting it on your body and flaunting to everyone that you are just soooo righteous in not doing those things. is it cause there’s nothing really interesting about you except the…
Its called standing up for what you believe. I understand what you are getting at but your statements are incorrect, it’s like standing up for anything. Straight Edge is about living a positive and clean life style, its something you are passionate about. When you see it it reminds you of what you stand for and it gives you encouragement. You can’t stand for anything if you don’t actually make a stand, and having it marked on your body means a hell of a lot.
So many people get so upset when Edge kids stand up and act proud about being Straight Edge when they are alright to constantly share stories and pictures of them getting high and wasted, or wear an alcohol company shirt, or get a stoner tattoo. Seems to me like they hate the fact that Edge kids have the self control to not get wasted or get high and secretly wish they could do the same
This was taken when The Ghost Inside performed ‘White Light’. That song, means so much to me. I know how Jonathan feels, I know what he went through. It’s so hard losing someone close to you. I won’t go into what my story is, but I still deal with it till this day. Anyways…I was front and center for that song. Vigil saw me crying uncontrollably (judge me). But yeah, he held me, sang to me in a way. Just….held my head in his arms. It was so meaningful. I screamed into the mic for most of that song too but like, I could hear the emotion in his voice….his eyes told a story. it’s hard to explain. This band has helped me deal with all the negative bullshit in my life. When I met Jonathan for the second time, I thanked him for everything. He also wrote “stay positive” on my ticket. And I’ve been doing just that.This photo means all the world to me. And i’m so thankful the photographer captured this moment.
So if you’ve been on facebook today and you’re a little involved in the metal/hardcore community, you might have discovered that As I Lay Dying vocalist and frontman Tim Lambesis recently got arrested for allegedly trying to hire someone to murder his estranged wife. This is pretty shocking news…
Straight up truth. A lot of Atheists and Christians are thick as bricks.
Christians preach scripture to defend their beliefs without knowing what it means, and Atheists use scripture as a weapon to attack Christians. My advice, listen to what James German said.
Worth making a question out of it, why do Atheists feel like they need to attack Christians for their beliefs? What is there really to gain other than looking like a bell-end? Christians let you get along with life, can you not do the same?
And Christians, defend your faith. We spend to long being pushed around by people digging holes in the bible, defend what you know. HOWEVER do not go into it without proper research, other wise you will look like an idiot. Know your scripture so you can properly explain what it means.
Lastly, Atheists you cannot quote Leviticus, if you do then it straight up means you don’t know what you are talking about. If you think Leviticus is still relevant then go talk to a Jew.
To all, if any, of you cats responded to my last note about prayer then you are legends and I love you so much, if you didn’t I still love you, just not as much, But no I love you heaps also.
Just wanted to say that I applied for a job the day that it was listed on the interwebs and was contacted the next day for an interview. Can you throw out some prayer that it all goes sweet? I feel like God is about to mad crazy on my life.
