The Cross of Christ
As Christians, we know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. But why did He have to endure such an awful death? Couldn't He have redeemed humanity in some easier way?
To answer this question, we must first consider the righteousness of God. Because He is holy, no one has ever seen Him and lived. Our sinful nature cannot exist in the presence of pure holiness. The Bible tells us that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3:23), and we know that "the wages of sin is death" (6:23). This reality leaves us in a lost condition, eternally separated fr

My GiftsFor sometime i have been wondering what my gift is.More Like This
I have been wondering who i am.
This i am half way there.
One of my gifts is writing (obviously)
I wrote down all my feelings telling God how i felt and why i felt it.
Why i felt a black whole eating away at my insides tearing me apart.
Why i felt my energy was draining away from me.
Why my life was taking unexpected turns when i am only fourteen.
Now i know.
I didn't know why i was being made fun of, why i felt soo alone
I was not seeking God, i was not reading my bible.
I was only praying for myself and not others.
As a guy i dont like to talk about my feelings.
I just bottle up all my feelings inside hoping they would go away but they don't.
My whole life i have built up this wall around me not letting anybody in.
I still have not broken it down becasue i am afraid of what people might think of m.
They might think im gay because i act different from all the other boys.
God gave me the gift to write what i feel.

We know Your Word says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have done.
We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values.
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery.
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice.
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable...
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem.
We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression.
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and set us free.
With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over ou

Being a Christian Manga-ka?Lets face it folks...the topic of Christianity is so unheard of in manga. There are very few "mangas" that solely base there theme towards Christianity. If so, many people believe that it is SO not a manga...just a comic book advertising the Christsian faith just to get you to follow thier religion. I know they're trying to do a good deed and trying to spread God's Word to those who love manga. The cold hard truth though: they're not very good.>__More Like This
Light of the WorldI sometimes gaze upon the skiesMore Like This
and wonder if I am alive
if I am alive then why do I
feel like a dream exists deep down inside?
I wander deep in the labyrinth of this vast place which little sanity resides
I suspect they are mine but grace has allowed my spirit stand firm so far... so far...
The columns which lights the passage way seems quite queer for it had intricate carvings
on its face
the faces which little light reveals is a constant worrisome display
for if you had not spend enough time to gaze
they were faces of cherubs and angels whom resides in God's most sacred place
I have little care and wonder what goes on about the earth
but I come about this little place where my solace and I can meet when
the world has fallen deeply asleep
The stone surface where my feet are placed
is hard struck from labourer's hands
but I tell you now that I am much more aware of how the backs
of these servants feel as they are stiff from having been stepped on many times

which are queer in its own way
As I wandered down this path today
I stumbled upon a rich proclaimed and vast domain
A field of bountiful crops and seeds which blossomed from its ground to mighty branched out trees
which made home for birds and bees (which leaves me undesired to rest underneath any tree with pointy bottomed things!)
Its shade for travelling parties who have journeyed from oh so far away
And fruits for drinking and flesh to eat
To feed the hungry pilgrim who is travelling on its way...
Yeah, perhaps it would give reason for him to delay
To watch the clouds above dance, run and play
For the clouds above are buoyant and robust in display
In addition for their penchant for giggling childlike as they waddled in
pools of blue rivers where they dwell...like fish in the sea...
Now, picture this if you will
A haven filled with daisies, chamomile and daffodils
Sprout from green and grassy ground
Beneath a sun which hovered high

Sweet guardian of our souls
Songs of perpetual praises to God on high
We look up to you on Heavens tonight
be the light we sought and bring bring us closer to our Jesus Christ the Lord
that we may never wander astray
O beings of great light
Who dwell in the countenance of the Almighty Yahweh Sabaoth
protect us from the snares of evil
O Saint Michael pray for us
O saint Michael protect us
O saint Michael hear our prayer
and shield us with your wings and sword
This we pray through Christ Jesus our Lord and God
Child of Heaven...sheep of the Most Sovereign LordA child in Heaven tottered to the edge of a yolk white cloudMore Like This
and what does he see?
A world beneath the Heavens which he was going to be
as he stared long and hard things went in his mind
'Will I be sad or will I be fine?'
The angel who stood right by his side
held both his shoulders and then he smiled
the child looked unconvinced though the angel promised to never leave its side
to light and protect...to offer it Heavenly guide
through the Holy Spirit in this child would its spirit find
Christ Jesus its Counsel to lead it in its every day life
Then the child who was still looking at the edge of the cloud
said ..."I was thinking out loud...
Why do I have to come down to earth
and not live with You, my Lord and God
Do you not want me anymore...?"
A tear had welled up in the child's deep blue eyes
but Oh the Sovereign Lord God Jesus Christ
His love and compassion is beyond human compare
His patience and mercy are numerous like the grains of sands which sleeps at an ocean sho
the little child, I and the Lord Jesus ChristThere was a field which was sprinkled with red berries and treesMore Like This
spread in fine pearls of roses and fruits which sprout as they pleased
in the field there was a white gate wrought of paint and of wood
its carving was fashioned in a kind of way
which was so pretty and wonderful but sadly the white paint was peeling away
still the roses which laid faithfully by the feet of the gate
were now drooping and wanting to sleep in its forest green bed
their beauty had graced them ever so much
but their eyes were now half opened and they could not utter as much
as the sneakers of a child kicked the side of the gate
blue berry sized flowers twitched the button nose on their face
the yellow flowers which looked quite like dancing ladies
twirled in a fashion which made me think of people who were alive no more
the kid who kicked the side of the gate
had wanted to look at what lay over the place
and so she decided to unlatched the brass hook
before she strode over to watch how beauty unfolded

I wanted so much
to have someone to talk to
so I picked up some fluffy clouds from above
and bottled winds which came passing by
I pulled up some flowers which stood in my way
which looked like sunflowers and daisies at play
they squirmed and they fussed- my what a display
when I had extracted them up from the ground
the screaming ended because they were dead...
I jingled bronze pennies from my pocket
and took them out because I thought it would add value...
then I plucked some apples from some trees
avoided honey because I didn't want to upset any bees
I put them altogether
and out came what seemed to be
an imaginary friend whose features were that of an animal
or that of a person
I could make it out because I couldn't quite see
Then as it emerged yea it was a cloud
I didn't give it a name though...I just called it a cloud
it was a cloud because I often daydreamed as I stared in the skies
as my thoughts got lost in wonder as how clouds were so beautifully formed

Many days fell away with no food and lots of snow
And the population dropped in the colony that they loved
Great clouds rolling over the hills bringing snowstorms to all
But then the Patuxet showed up
And lots of corn was grown in the colony
Followed by friendship which resulted in great peace
How I'm gonna be a pessimist about this? (x2)
