I looked at the date -- and he wrote it on December 23.
"bad things happen to BAD people!"
Question asked on Formspring: "bad things happen to BAD people!" Or maybe it was something that pertained to my last post, which is completely unfair to judge.
Here's my answer: There are really no “good” people. The Bible makes it abundantly clear that all of us are tainted by and with sin, and not even the holiest person on the planet is "good". Everyone, including you, would be bad.
Romans 5:8 says - “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one. Their throats are open graves; their tongues practice deceit. The poison of vipers is on their lips. Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness. Their feet are swift to shed blood; ruin and misery mark their ways, and the way of peace they do not know. There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
Don't know why you're hating, but whatever it is, I hope that you find the peace that you're probably still looking for. :)
Colin Farrell is a hot man who likes to do very bad things. Russell Brand is a hot man who likes to do very bad things.
I see God this way sometimes. He's got the whole world in His hands...and because of that, NOTHING is impossible!
Did you ever wonder, what if God automatically answered all our prayers to Him?
To write about something means you have to be an expert on it. I am definitely no theologian or expert on the Bible; in fact, I have only started to read albeit erratically about a month ago. If you are new to reading this and expecting hardcore lessons on postmodern evangelism, then you might need to look somewhere else. It all just started with an inspiration, from Christians who, like me, are not genius or perfect but aim to share to at least one person.
I'm sure you all have cool and awesome dads too, but my dad is surely on the list of Top 5 Greatest Dads in the world (and that's just according to me, of course).
His greatest dream was to become a doctor. But that was not what God had planned for him.
So Piolo may not be popular depending on where you are in the world, but where I'm from, you are probably 1 of 4 people who doesn't know who he is (and 1 of 3 who wouldn't recognize the picture above -- the 2 others don't have TVs). His face is literally everywhere. Billboards of his endorsements, from tuna to perfume to laundry soap, on major highways. Run to the nearest convenience store and his face is on a magazine cover. Turn on the TV and you'd see him on primetime or on an interview talking about his latest movie. It would be a feeble comparison, but he's our version of Brad Pitt, only more popular.
Before you click on that X in your browser and write me off as dorky, take heed. I was not expecting to even think about God in this instance. I was browsing through some pretty old mp3s on my mobile phone until I came across the song "Everywhere".
But this is not a post about me or basketball. Funny that I thought about the NBA when I read about Nehemiah.
The question may probably weird you out. Stretch the TRUTH? In church? How incredulous! For fellow Christians, that's unheard of. You would never twist, bend, or mutilate the truth in church.
But I have. And I think in some strange moment in our lives, we all probably did.
I don't know what it is with me and interviews. It's probably because I prepare in advance, read up on the subject, and have interviewed people myself. I listen intently to friends who didn't make it and ensure that I will not make the same mistakes they made. My college interview, my first callcenter job, my promotions --- 99% of the time, I sealed the deal.
But there was one that I was not particularly proud of.
You could be a student cramming for finals, a mother of three busy taking care of household chores or a corporate person rendering excessive amounts of overtime. We all need time. Or do we really?
This video reminds me that sometimes, we don't need additional quantities of time to make ourselves better or happier. All we need is time well spent. Ephesians 5:15-16 says this:
15Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.
A woman at the airport waiting to catch her flight bought herself a bag of cookies, settled in a chair in the airport lounge and began to read her book. Suddenly she noticed the man beside her helping himself to her cookies. Not wanting to make a scene,she read on, ate cookies, and watched the clock. As the daring "cookie thief" kept on eating the cookies she got more irritated and said to herself, "If I wasn't so nice, I'd blacken his eye!" She wanted to move the cookies to her other side but she couldn't bring her self to do it. With each cookie she took, he took one too. When only one was left, she wondered what he would do. Then with a smile on his face and a nervous laugh, he took the last cookie and broke it in half.
