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, 基督教 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 耶稣 Christ as their saviour. In the midst of such persecution,...

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 你 your hearing... Permanently...”


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

"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was 给 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, 或者 in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." ~ Revelation 20:4

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

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

 St. Elizabeth of Hungary
St. Elizabeth of Hungary
Hi guys, since tomorrow we are going to celebrate the birth of 耶稣 Christ, I'm going to write down a 列表 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 城堡 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...

    Matthew 28:19-20 describes how we must spread the Word of 耶稣 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 你 can. Teach them the rules and 诗歌 of the Bible. It doesn’t matter what they say about your beliefs, 你 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 耶稣 told them. First, Peter healed a crippled beggar in the name...

I have no problem with homosexuality, and either way, the bible contradicts itself in that regard when it states that 你 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...

This is something I found, so IT DOES NOT BELONG TO ME!!! It was very touching, and maybe it will be for 你 too.


Month one

Mommy
I am only 8 inches long
but I have all my organs.
I 爱情 the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it
I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your 心 beat
is my 最喜爱的 lullaby.

Month Two

Mommy
today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If 你 could see me
you could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I'm not big enough to survive outside my 首页 though.
It is so nice and warm in here.

Month Three

You know what Mommy
I'm a boy!!
I hope that makes 你 happy.
I always want 你 to be happy....

Does God really exist. Does 耶稣 really exist. If God really does exist, why doesn't he help us. Does he know everything. Why am I in so much pain. Isn't God suppose to guide us to happier places. Why does He let people abuse me. What about the economy. What about the people who get abused. What about the people who don't have homes 或者 have never known their parents. What about the people in Africa. What about all the other Gods. What if we Christians are praying to the wrong God. What about the Jews, Muslims, Buddists, Monks, and everyone else. We mistreat them. Cause we think we are right....

Just to let 你 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

I know when 你 sit down and when 你 rise up. Psalm 139:2

I am familiar with all your ways. Psalm 139:3

Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
Matthew 10:29-31

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

In me 你 live and 移动 and have your being. Acts 17:28

For 你 are my offspring. Acts 17:28

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

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

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

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

You've been on my mind all 日 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 你 know I'll just push 你 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...

What is the truth? How do we know that God exists? I'm an Atheist but my whole life Jack has raised me as a Christian. Everywhere I look I see pain, hurt, false hope, and death. Why does God let us suffer? Why does He let his daughters get raped and His sons get abused? Why does He let brothers kill brothers? I'm a non-beleiver, a unwanted, a broken... But there are times when I believe in Him. What if the Bible is not the truth? How do we know if we aren't just pawns for Satan and God? If God really does exist, why are so many innocent people die? Who exists and who doesn't? What is the truth?

Little nervous hands tug at the ruffles of a 粉, 粉色 泳装, 游泳衣 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 前锋, 期待 and rising above the noise that rings in her ears. “You can do it! Just a few 更多 steps and then you’ll see me.”

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

There were once three girls who were best friends. They had known each other since they were all 1 日 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 说 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...

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 或者 she dies. Death 由 stoning was prescribed in the Old Testament Law as a punishment for various sins. Both 动物 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 或者 ceremonial purity of a person 或者 an animal.

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

TRUE STORY

A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends
one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various
experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than
planned, and had to walk 首页 alone. She wasn't afraid because it was
a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep
her 安全 from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a
short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down
the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were
waiting...

Jesus Christ Superstar is a rock opera about the last seven days of the life of Christ before His crucifixion. Critics have 给 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 耶稣 Christ warned us (Matthew...
