A graphical representation of the contradictions in the bible. Each red line links 2 contradicting statements.
WILL ALWAYS REBLOG.
This reminds me of a really fascinating theological idea I read once. It poses that God meant for the Bible to be full of contradictions, because it isn’t an instruction manual, but a test of character. If you can read through all the books and stories, all the confusing, contradictory statements, and you still choose to take home a message of peace, acceptance, and forgiveness, then you’ve passed God’s test.
I’m not a very religious person, but I still really like that idea.
^ I like that interpretation :D
Audrey Hepburn spent many years in Africa helping the helpless. Yet all the pictures on Tumblr show her as a fashion icon. Fashion passes in a wink, compassion lasts forever.
all the awards to this old man
I’m sorry for the generic post.
This is my mother. She is 54 years old.
Today, while out shopping for well-needed new pants, my mom cried in the ladies dressing room because a pair of jeans didn’t fit. She didn’t let me see, but I could tell she had cried a little when she exited the room because her eyes were reddish and glossy. She looked sad, and said, “I’m too fat for these jeans,” and other things alike. I have never been so heartbroken in my entire life, and I almost cried.
I feel like my mom thinks she is too ugly to wear certain things, and I see it every tie we go shopping. “I can’t wear this shirt, it will show how fat I am,” or, “I can’t fit in this top because it will show my bulges.”
Please tumblr, I want to show my mom that I am not the only person that thinks she is absolutely beautiful. In fact, she is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my entire life.
Please reblog this and help me prove to her that hundreds, maybe thousands of other people think she is beautiful, too. I really want to try and boost her confidence, I love my mother so much.
Please help my friend out.
Everyone should feel beautiful, including her mother.
Show some love.
A kind of memorial gif of all the names and ages of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. They speak for themselves.
I love you, you were ready.
Happy Birthday, John Basilone! (November 4, 1916)
John Basilone was a Medal of Honor recipient due to his heroic actions on Guadalcanal, and also received the Navy Cross. He helped sell war bonds back in the states and ended up marrying Lena Riggi in 1944. His life was cut tragically short on February 19, 1945 as he became just another casualty on Iwo Jima. To this day, since 1981, his hometown of Raritan has held a parade in honor of him. We miss you, Manila John.
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
“Rap is just noise”
Let us thank our government for ruining our social life!
bye bye freedom of expression on the internet. the Filipinos will miss you.
