A Personal Reflection on Father's Day

As I start to write this composition, I honestly don't know what to say here. Hmmm... Should I start by saying, "Happy Fathers' Day, Dad"? Or, "I love you, Dad and God bless you"?

Nonsense. First of all, Dad won't be seeing this post for the simple reason that he (... więcej)

Why Gamble?

♫ Throw a quarter in the sky, before it falls to the ground,
Gotta' call heads or tails
Throw my nickels and my pennies and my dimes
In the wishing well ♫

When a King Sheds Blood, a Kingdom Is Established

As a young learner of history, I have observed that bloodshed is always involved in founding a new nation, kingdom, or state. Figuratively speaking, every kingdom or nation in current existence was founded on bloodshed.

Throughout the history, we learn about kings and statesmen who shed great amount (... więcej)

Faith and Common Sense

Somebody said, "Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to."
 
I honestly am not sure what the author of that quote meant by that. But as for me, I believe that a wise believer uses his faith without having to absolutely abandon common sense. And I just can't understand (... więcej)

The Love of Money

Somebody asked, "If money is the root of all evil, was it money that caused the devil to be evil? If it was, how was it possible when there weren't yet any form of money in existence back then?"

Actually, it's not the money itself that is the root of all kinds of evil. Because (... więcej)

The most serious, most original, most non-cliche, most super 100 real 2spooky story to ever exist in the history of history, or A story of trials, tribulations, and our Lord and Savior.

My name is Kyle, I’m 12 years old, and I am plagued by the supernatural. Not the good kind of Supernatural, the bad kind. But, excuse me, I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me start from the beginning.
I love video games, especially Sonic the Hedgehog. Tails is my favorite character. That’s why (... więcej)

The Gang

I always seemed to find myself walking. There was never much to see on the dull, except for polluted skies and polluted people, but I still walked. I guess it was one of the only outlets I had. I lived in Atlantic City, deep in the heart of the city and deep in the heart of the ghetto. I grew up with (... więcej)

Peach Time

It was early in the morning and the man was hungry. He sat up in his bed, yawned and stretched, and put his feet into his slippers. The man stood up and walked into the bathroom, knowing that it would be another day of immense pain. His kidney stone hadn't left him yet. He had always wanted to get (... więcej)

Does God Want Us to be Perfect?

I read the Bible and learned that God wants to perfect us.

Let's be clear there. I'm not saying God wants us to be perfect or else He'll not love us - that's called legalism. What I'm trying to say is, God, in His great loving kindness for us, wants to perfect us by His grace. (... więcej)

In Dealing with the "Lucky" Chain Messages

Just keeping it real, it kinda' pisses me off when somebody passes a chain message to me which says, "Share this and you will have good luck; ignore this and you will have bad luck." And what would piss me off all the more is that those who share things like that to me are... *sighs* grown (... więcej)

Let's say I am a citizen of a kingdom that is under traditional type of monarchy. And I am one of the king's closest friends.

Now, I have a brother who is a rebel. And because I love him, I sent petitions to the king, asking him to grant my brother an amnesty. As my close friend, the king (... więcej)

The Princess loved her island Queendom and all of it’s inhabitants, but the inhabitants didn’t always love each other. The Queendom (... więcej)

A man that I deeply respect once said that "A happy wife equals a happy life." Well, he's married; so obviously, I believe him in that statement.

Problem is, that statement makes me hate the fact that I'm single. To be honest, I want to experience those joyfully painful headaches (... więcej)

Another Suggestion for NYers Who Want to Ban Balut in NY

I just recently understood why the NYer animal rights activists want to ban balut in their state. I believe that the actual reason behind this is the fact that common sense is exponentially becoming a very scarce commodity in America... or pretty much, in this progressivistic world.
 
So, to the animal (... więcej)

Let me get this right. So, aborting a human fetus is a woman's right, but cooking an underdeveloped duckling is wrong? Seriously, American liberals?

Okay, so when we Christians and conservatives protest against abortion, you'll say, "That's just a clump of tissue." Oh, well. (... więcej)

About Repentance - My Own Renewed View of It

Repentance is not only a matter of what one should turn from but also of Whom one should turn to. For repentance is a redirection of what the heart wants or so desires from something to something else. In it, the heart changes its course of direction and makes a half round turn from its former way; for (... więcej)

I believe that only those who do not know what life is should fear death.
 
First of all, if a person would only observe the diversities in life, he should be convinced that there is one God Who created it. This should cause him to have a conscientious feeling that he might be offending this God in (... więcej)

A Sudden Thought About God, Idolatry, & Atheism

(3/15/2015)

COME TO THINK OF IT:
 
By nature, we don't want a God Who would tell us what to do and what not to do. So, it's either we'll just imagine a version of God Who's okay with everything that we do  - after all, He is forgiving; or, we'll just totally suppress the (... więcej)

Heart Vs. Mind: Which One Should You Really Trust?

(1/22/2015)

Well, the "philosophical"/figurative heart and and the mind are essentially one. The "philosophical"/figurative heart is the vessel of thoughts and passions; therefore, it is in the same faculty with the mind.

And here's a problem: the heart/mind of man is corrupted (... więcej)
