Hi guys, we aren't harsh with our submission guidelines, we just want to glorify Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour! If your submission upholds something else other than Christ as holy (such as Mary), you are still very welcome to the group but please don't be offended if we decline your deviation to the gallery. To God alone be glory!
Also, the uploads are 4 per day. Since we are a small group as of now we can afford to upload a lot. Later that might change to maybe 1 a day as I don't want the deviation stacks to be too big (where people just click delete without ever looking at them.)
Please feel free to mention any changes that you want. I'm always open to talk about it! Have fun and welcome to the group, God bless!
PS: Christos Kurios means Jesus is Lord!
Dont' forget to visit our youtube channel We hope that it will be edifying and ultimately bring glory to our God and our Father.
