When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man ....

I lost sight of the innocence and wonder, the unique, special viewpoint we have all left behind

Time to put away childish things? I politely disagree

Nice fantasy painting here. But as far as your quote goes, you have used it out of context. Paul, when he said this, was talking about spiritual naivety and immaturity. If you read other writings you will see we are addressed as 'little children' and children of light. In fact, Jesus Himself stated in no uncertain terms, that unless you become as a 'little child' you shall in no wise enter the Kingdom of God, for such is the kingdom of heaven.
Just thought you may be interested. :-)

I need to read that verse again, there is a lot of truth in what you say. I find that children a lot of the time are very contrasted adults. They have the ability to be extremely brutal, and others have the ability to put a smile on anyone's face without hardly any effort.

You have to be both sometimes, I think.

Brothers, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults.

Wow...I don't think i've ever felt so moved by one of your paintings as much as this one. I think you've managed to touch that special nerve that reawakens the child within us all. You know you've done a good job a painting when I come out with a comment like this - damn art school!
darktemplar371 Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2009
very wondeful
StarDragon77 Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009
Yeah - even Picasso said that when he did his artwork he tried to do things from the perspective of a child.

Although, I do recall something else, from Stephen King's "Hearts in Atlantis". That when we are children we experience moments of such joy like we're in some far off place, like Atlantis must have been, and then we grow up and our hearts break in two.

People say that I'm childish, but then I say they grew up too fast.

I never want to lose my innocence, but it gets harder to keep...

Great image and the comment is wonderful.

God I wish I had that innocence back. Back before all the crap that life throws at you. Back when it was easy to trust and enjoy life.

I think ignorance truly is bliss.
