1. If the GM asks me where an NPC is, the answer better not be "Right now? Mostly in my small intestine."
2. If playing a Cleric, not allowed to consecrate people, places, things or intangible concepts.
3. Not allowed to De-Consecrate them either.
4. No skirting around the GM's "NO DROW" policy by radically altering their emo personalities. As bad as the angst is, Peppy Cheerleaders, Guidos and Sheldon Cooper knockoffs are worse.

---Why would I leave Christianity which teaches something proven, for Wiccan which teaches something unproven?

---Why would I join Wicca when it contradicts my own experiences about Satan?

7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Buddhism7 Reasons Why I Choose Christianity Over Buddhism7 Reasons Why Christianity Over Buddhism in Academic Essays More Like This
1. Unique and Set Apart
-Buddhism's beliefs are very close to those of Hinduism. How then can you determine one religion from the other?
-As opposed to Christianity, which has several factors that no other religion has, including a Savior, forgiveness, a personal God, and Salvation through faith.
-Another unique aspect of Christianity is that Jesus was resurrected.
-With so many wise men recorded throughout history, how is Buddha set apart?
---Why would I, a Christian, leave a unique religion with a resurrected Savior, for one that has an average founder and that is similar to another religion?

Why is Hell Necessary?1. Sin and CrimeWhy is Hell Necessary? in Academic Essays More Like This
Sin is like crime. When you commit a crime, you are breaking the law. When you commit sin, you are breaking God’s Law. If a Judge let a criminal go without punishment, we would call him unjust. Thus, if God allowed sin to go unpunished, that would make God unjust.
2. How Severe is Sin?
One of the major problems I encounter when telling people about sin and hell is that they simply don’t grasp how severe sin is. While the comparison above is a good illustration, it doesn’t do justice in communicating how bad sin is. Sin is an act of evil that is against the very nature of God. God is so pure and holy that He cannot commit sin, it’s against His very nature to do so.
It’s so important you understand this. If you find yourself going back to the idea that “sin isn’t so bad” then you still don’t get it. SIN IS EVIL. Sin is of Satan. Sin is against God. Sin is severe.
3. Do you like Heaven?

1. Why would God allow evil?
Two words: free will.
We have free will to commit evil, and free will to choose not to.
Evil is the absence of God. The same way cold is the absence of heat, and darkness is the abs
His Darkest HourHis Darkest Hour in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Jedi rise and Jedi fall,
But his is the greatest of them all.
His darkest hour.
That will change the present.
Change the future,
And destroy his past.
He who now changes his name.
Out with the innocence of childhood pain.
In with the cold of uncertain dreams,
To kill his wife,
His people and soul.
Darth Vader becomes him.
He becomes us all.

He doesn't know I'm watching him,
Hasn't the faintest clue,
So occupied his mind's become,
With Luke and Leia too.
He is the perfect father,
A fine protector of his young,
His children his greatest achievement,
Right now he's rocking one.
Luke is in his adoring arms,
His sniffling slowly stopping.
Whispered words of calm and joy
And a touch from within the force.
He is the perfect father,
So dedicated to his cause,
Luke stops crying and falls asleep
In time to his father's singing.
He was my padawan.
Now he is a man,
A man with a heart of gold,
And a father with a soothing touch
That can quiet his frightened child.
