CAN WE TAKE A MOMENT AND IMAGINE WHAT AN AWESOME DAD BOROMIR WOULD HAVE MADE
WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU???
“a better one than Faramir, that’s for sure,” says Denethor~
oh my god
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
/An atheist who understands Christian theology better than Bible-thumpers do.
I’m going to fucking memorize this shit.
I will forever perform this monlogoue when people start sprouting religious shit
A christian that understands this gives you a high fucking five
Okay so heres something that I feel ppl never take into consideration when using this example- if the cup was full prior, and you poured out half of it, it is totally valid for it to be seen as half empty, and if prior the cup was empty, it would totally make sense that someone would view it as half full. So be aware that past experiences have an affect on how ppl view things and you telling them to “look on the bright side” is just another way of saying “conform to my mindset”.
You are wonderful.
So, I was wondering if anyone had done a genderbent Tifa Lockhart cosplay (since I was looking at critiques of her design, and I think a decent solution to sensationally sexualized female characters would be an equitable amount of sensationally sexualized male characters), aaaaand I found this.
You should really just go ahead and check out his whole damn sexy gallery.
Wow, he actually did a damn good job!
for reference…yes.. reference.
He kind of reminds me of my old roommate who got like 80’s action hero hueg for the sake of cosplaying some video game character who was supposed to have sweet abs.
Oh god my lady parts
