Interviewer: I don’t want to burst your bubble, but you do know about Santa. You know the secret about Santa?
C. S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters.
This is put perfectly. People today don’t care about what is true, they are only interested in what is practical or useful or intelligent etc. Christianity is not about practicality. It doesn’t concern itself with if you need it or not. We cant outgrow it. It doesn’t care about culture. It deals with truth. What is fact and what is false. Looking at Christianity through any other lens then “what is true” is a disservice to yourself.
- make a chat system
- give alerts when someone answers your ask
- REMOVE THE FUCKING ‘REBLOG AS A LINK’ THING
- FIX THAT FUCKING TUMBLR VIDEO PLAYER GOD DAMNIT
- search multiple tags at once
- MAYBE HAVE A ‘LIVE VIDEO’ BUTTON OR SOMETHING
- FUCKING REMOVE BLOGS THAT HAVE BEEN INACTIVE FOR 18 MONTHS
- REMOVE BLOGS OF PEOPLE WHO SEND HATE OR VIOLATE THE RULES OF TUMBLR (YEA IM LOOKING AT YOU, 12.9 YEAR OLDS)
All of these would be awesome except for the removing inactive blogs. Maybe just blogs with no posts. I know I haven’t done anything on my Myspace in years, but once every year when friends are around we’ll get on our myspaces and just look at how we were back in 7th-9th grade and laugh at ourselves. Tumblr is like my college myspace. And I imagine in a few years when I stop using this every once in a while I may come back just to see what I was like and remind myself of what it was like to be 18-20. I don’t plan on being a Tumblr user forever. But I hope my Tumblr lasts, maybe not forever, but a significant time. Who knows? Maybe our kids will want to know what we were like back in the day and we can show them, provided the site is still around. Who really knows?
If only all men were like this.
If men were all like this the world population rate would be so slow
There are guys like this you’re just too busy putting them in the fucking friend zone to see that
reblog for the comment
Oh hell no you better listen the fuck up dickwads
I was about to go to sleep and then this bullshit showed up on my dash and you have all earned yourselves fedoras so sit down, shut up, and educate your stupid asses.
“Putting them in the friendzone”? I’m sorry did you mean “I was nice to a girl and I cared about her and I’m bitter because she didn’t want me back?” Or was it “I believe that if I love another person they’re a bitch for just wanting to be friends.” Perhaps it was “I treated her (or pretended to, rather) like a person instead of a sexual object and now she’s not being a sexual object for me like I deserve.” No, wait, it’s “friendship with a girl makes me angry because I’m a self-entitled shithead who feels like if I want to be with a girl she has to accept that regardless of her feelings or else she’s a total bitch.”
The friendzone is the concept that a girl wanting to be your friend is somehow this inherently awful thing. Like, wow, did it occur to you that she thought you were, I dunno, FRIENDS? Did it occur to you that maybe she doesn’t feel romantically towards you but she still wants you to be part of her life because she thinks you’re a great person? I mean, if this is your reaction you’re wrong, because if you think friendzoning is a thing then clearly you’re a fucktrumpet but that’s beside the point.
Women are not machines you put niceness coins into until sex comes out. There are no punchcards to fill out to get to sex that you are apparently entitled to.
There is no friendzone, there are only people who don’t know how to behave like they’re not five-year-olds who don’t know how to take “no” for an answer.
Now I’m going to sleep. Disrespectful misogynistic asswagons.
Fair enough. Then you can NEVER say the words “I wish I could find a guy exactly like you.”
To me the friend zone is when a guy really likes a girl and he tries everything. She won’t date him because he isn’t attractive enough or some other silly reason.
The friend zone is like a job interview where the company sits you down and says: “Ok, you are PERFECT for this job. You have everything we are looking for. Its honestly amazing how well you fit. But we’re not going to hire you. We’re going to hire this other applicant who is far less qualified. Then when he messes up the job and costs us thousands of dollars, we’ll call you to complain about him and have you do all of his duties, without pay or benefits, until we find another, equally as bad replacement.”
But no, I guess its the guys fault…again.
My friends from high school came to visit me these past few days and it was two of the best days I’ve had in a long time. Last night we were just sitting outside near the hot tub and eventually struck up a conversation with the 4 girls who were sitting in the hot tub. It lasted until about 4 am…
I think this is interesting. But the whole “no sex before marriage” thing was a completely different ballgame back then when they came up with it. They got married at 12, 13 years of age for cryin’ out loud. We live in a modern society where that’s just not possible, or desirable. Marriage had a completely different meaning back then. It made a woman your property.
The Bible may say this, or that, but it also says a lot about stoning other people, chopping thieves’ hands off, not eating certain foods, not sitting on chairs of women who have had their periods, etc.
Why are Christians not observing those laws? Why are they so selective about their choices of what to observe, and what not to?
Personally, I don’t think being a virgin at any age is shocking. Some people simply aren’t into casual sex, or don’t get the opportunity to have sex until later in their lives. Besides, I think it’s ridiculous how so much emphasis in our culture is placed on sex and virginity. Sex is great, and exciting in the moment, but ultimately boring.
I think you’re missing several key points. The first is that the life of Christ fulfilled the law. He did not abolish it, but fulfilled it. When the law was introduced, it was never intended to be an instrument though which man saved himself, that is not God. God is not a God of do-it-yourself salvation. The law was the instrument through which man was to be saved, Man is saved through keeping the law. When Christ fulfilled (kept) the law, He earned the privilege of life. Those who are in Christ share in His righteousness and life. Paul talks a lot about this in Romans. A large portion of Pauls letters, in fact, deals with the law of the Old Testament and its application in New Testament times.

2. Their is a very real difference between definite, absolute moral code and the law of the Israelites. The nation of Israel was a Theocratic state: they lived under the rule of God as their King (or kings/judges who were in communion with God). And God declared their laws. The laws were mostly derived from moral laws, but not always. These laws were social and culturally based. If in doubt, look for a punishment. If a punishment for an offense is listed, its most likely an Israelite nation law. If its simply: don’t do this its a moral law. For example: “Rape is bad” is a moral absolute. “Pay a fine to the father of the rape victim” is an Israelite law (I don’t remember if that’s the exact punishment, but its something extreme like that). God’s people (the church) does not operate under a Theocracy anymore and we aren’t bound by the laws of one, though we are bound by the moral absolutes.
3. Sex, within a committed marriage, is an Earthly representation of the love of God for His church and, as such, should be respected within the divine institution. The New Testament deals a lot with sexual morality as well and the Bible never says that sex outside of marriage could be ok.
Hope that clears some things up.
