Not Ashamed Stamp by Inemiset Not Ashamed Stamp by Inemiset
Guys, don't be afraid. I know it's easier to play Peter and deny Him, but we are not called to take the easy road.

Look past all of the hatred, contempt, and trolling thrown your way and see that He is proud of you for confessing His name.

1 Peter 4:12-19

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; 13 but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation.

14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 By no means let any of you suffer as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; 16 but if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not feel ashamed, but in that name let him glorify God.

17 For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And if it is with difficulty that the righteous is saved, what will become of the godless man and the sinner?

19 Therefore, let those also who suffer according to the will of God entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right.


God is mightier than your problems, more powerful than your faults and your mistakes, more relevant than the next bully, and even more loving than your parents could ever be.
Stay strong guys, and never give up on Him, because not once did He give up on you.

To be honest, I somewhat believe in God/Jesus. Not much though, go ahead and say what you want, I'm just mostly what you people would call a "non believer"

"God is mightier than your problems, more powerful than your faults and your mistakes, more relevant than the next bully, and even more loving than your parents could ever be. Stay strong guys, and never give up on Him, because not once did He give up on you."

EVEN MORE LOVING THAN YOUR PARENTS COULD EVER BE.

Excuse me, but this "God" you speak of hasn't shown me any love. He hasn't flown down from his magical cloud to read me a bedtime story. He didn't take care of me when I had the chicken pox. He doesn't attend my birthday celebrations or send me e-mails asking how I am. My parents have done all of those things, and much, much, much more. THEY are responsible for my creation.

Any good or love that you receive, at all, is God. God is defined as good and love. That is where your statement fails on itself. Your physical creation is a result of your parents, sure. But you, specifically, are not.

The kind of love your parents express is no doubt genuine. They express their love for you in the manners you spoke of. But if you expect God to do exactly what your parents do in order to show His love, then you will always feel neglected. God expresses His love, not in the earthly way people do, but in His own spiritual way.

And, of course, if you don't believe He exists you probably won't feel it in that way anyway.

Of course I don't believe he exists. There is absolutely no evidence for his existence, because he has never shown himself, and never will. Notice how I'm not capitalizing the words "he", "his" and "himself". I cannot see any reason for this either. I'm going to go hell aren't I? That fiery place that people will burn in forever if they refuse to believe in someone we haven't seen in the flesh?

Funny how a lot of your art involves dragons. You see, they are also fictional. But, dragons actually have 1000x more chance of actually existing than God. Look, I know you're just going to shake your head and keep believing. By all means, do so, I don't run your life. But honestly, stamps like this greatly disturb me. Religion has reached the stage where it's almost impossible to take any of it seriously. Apparently, if you believe in God, you feel his love. I could start believing tomorrow, and I guarantee I wouldn't feel anything. We're supposed to just imagine it is there. I can understand churches and cathedrals and the historical remnants of religion, but the fact that some people haven't yet realized that it's all fantasy by this point in time is, yes, disturbing.

Nothing here stated made any sense. There was no material. I think your fantasy is based on having art that has no artists and insulting those that believe contrary fuels some sort of self ego. In fact not only is it rude that you act in this sort of manner but pathetic and more disturbing than what any Christian could feel on the matter.

Ugh, you’re one of those Christians. Go ahead, just shove your fingers in your ears and go “la la la” when people try to tell you your imaginary friend isn’t real, just like the child you are. Keep that up you might need shock therapy.

They'll never listen. They were brainwashed from birth, fed a bunch of lies and forced into believing in a bunch of baloney. And now, they look down upon people who don't believe. They actually think that humanity is suffering because people are refusing to read a bunch of pages with cryptic sentences on them. They are blissfully delusional and one day they'll understand.
