Orthodox Christianity bases its whole worship arounf praising God in the most beautiful ways. Almost, if not all praises and prayers have been made so that one sings his heart out for God. I will be posting some of the most beautiful for you to hear and will be updating this constantly.

Compelled by Fear or Love?"There is no fear in love; perfect love casts out fear. So then, love has not been made perfect in anyone who is afraid, because fear has to do with punishment." 1 John 4:18.Compelled by Fear or Love?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
"But Jesus came and touched them. He said, "Get up. Don't be afraid." Matthew 17:7
Motivation by fear of punishment = immaturity.
Picture this; a three year old and his father are standing by a busy road. The parent says to the child "I want you to look both ways before we cross the street. I also want you to hold my hand." At this, the three year old dashes across the street by himself without looking both ways.
The father follows and finally catches up to the child. In this situation, a lot of parents would say and do something like this; "I told you not to run into the street like that. But you did, so now I am going to spank you."
Why would the parent do something like this? Why not just explain to the child about his anatomy? Why not explain how all of his internal organs work and function together, and how i
The Horrific and Helpful Potential of BloodbendingHorrific and Helpful Potentials of BloodbendingThe Horrific and Helpful Potential of Bloodbending11 months ago in Personal More Like This
So today I re-watched "Out of the Past",episode 109 of LOK and then episode 308, "The Puppetmaster" of ATLA, seems to just be that sort of day for crazed maniacs in the Avatar world for me. And it got me thinking about what bloodbending can do on both ends of the spectrum.
First there's the bad side which we've seen a lot about in the show, both seasons:
Can control people against their will, indicating that in a world that is not Y7 like the Avatar universe it could be used for murder(attempted murder was shown in the show by Hama in ATLA-308), forced suicide, burglary, espionage, and rape.
Can permanently remove bending, removing any chance of the attacked person to further defend themselves from future attacks.

Homestuck: The ReviewWARNING: WALL OF TEXTHomestuck: The Review2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, first off, I'd like to say that I've made every effort to: a) Not include anything spoileriffic, and b) Not sound like a crazed fanboy while still vehemently promoting this webcomic. I've done some research and I've gathered ideas from plenty of people around the internet. I am a firm fan, but I would not consider myself to be part of the fandom. So with all this off my chest, let's start on the review.
Homestuck by Andrew Hussie is an interesting story. Note that I'm calling it a story right now, even though most would call it a webcomic. It uses a very unique method of progressing through the story. Instead of the generic < Backward | Forward > format most webcomics have, to go forward, you click links that are placed inside very specific and very important text. An example of this can be seen in the first page. Click a couple of times and get used to the format.

No, you're not gonna get RickRoll'd this time, promise.
Anyway, this episode was awesome. The basic premise is that Twilight Sparkle from the far-off time of next Tuesday warns Past!Twilight not to worry about the future, but gets cut off as the time travel spell Future!Twilight used wears off. Worried about the future, our Twilight decides to prevent this so-called "disaster" before it happens. While doing so, she gradually gets signs that further causes her worry. Eventually, Present!Twilight decides that she'll stop time itself in order to stop the disaster. Unfortunately, since so much time was wasted looking for the Star Swirl the Bearded wing of the Canterlot Library, then looking for the Time Stop scroll, that the Tuesday of the disaster comes and nothing happens. Lesson learned, Twilight uses a Time Travel spell Pinkie Pie found to warn her past self not to drive herself crazy

Literature Gallery RestructureUPDATED GALLERY STRUCTURE - APRIL 4Literature Gallery Restructure1 year ago in Literature Features More Like This
If you haven't browsed Literature lately, it's a mess. Sure, some of it comes from people whose work truly transcends genres (ever read the Library of Congress classification for Gravity's Rainbow?) and some of it comes from how people choose to interpret certain genres (godsdamnit, 'dark' is not the same as 'horror'! No, this gallery hasn't existed in ~6 years. Stop judging me).
But a lot of it comes from people having trouble navigating the galleries.
Based on your feedback and more backroom discussion, we've reupdated things! Please keep in mind that a lot of discussion went into the updates, so when you do get mad about them do it with the assumption that there's a reason behind this
All galleries will accept text and PDF submissions unless otherwise specified.

deviantaRT is applying to manage a new Top Level Domain called .art
Top Level Domain (TLD) is the technical name for ".com," ".net," ".org," or ".fr".

DeviantART is committed to have the .art TLD in the hands of representatives of the arts; people who know something about the Internet and the way art is presented and enabled by the Internet.

how to revise poetryThere a decent number of very talented poets on dA and, if you’re willing to dig hard enough, you can find some truly excellent work.how to revise poetry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you’re not willing to dig hard, but you still browse around casually in some of the better administered groups, you’ll likely stumble upon a few excellent works and a good number of good works that impress you but that don’t quite make the top grade.
And if you just browse around the poetry on dA, giving no effort to separate the good from the bad, a too-large percentage of what you’ll come across is what I call Conceptually Reductive Adolescent Pettiness, or CRAP for short.
The secret to writing better poetry, whether you’re a beginner or a frequently published poet, is in how well you revise. Like most creative things, a great poem is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. The problem with really bad poetry is that it’s neither inspired or well ed

Christian Analysis on Lady Gaga's song "JudasWhen I first heard the song I thought it was about Lady Gaga's character, Mary Magdalene, falling in love with Judas because of the sexual imagery in the music video and briefly looking at the lyrics.Christian Analysis on Lady Gaga's song "Judas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When her song was released it was a HUGE controversy in the Christian community because it was considered blasphemy for her sexual display and alleged use of Christian imagery in the video. Later I researched Lady Gaga's viewpoint of the song and she states that the song was not meant to attack on religion and that it's about honoring ones inner darkness in order to step into the light. She also mentions that Judas is a metaphor about "forgiveness and betrayal and things that haunt you in your life and how I believe that it's the darkness in your life that ultimately shines and illuminates the greater light that you have upon you."
After reading her viewpoint I started to understand the song a lot better. I re-read the lyrics again (without even watching the music video) and re-interprete

Thy EnemyJesus said it right. 43 "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. 46 If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? 47 And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? 48 Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect." ~ Matthew 5:43-48Thy Enemy11 months ago in Personal More Like This
