Bible Study: Discussion

Pleasant good day. Instead of the regular Bible Study of Genesis, I want to take the time to find out:

1. Which book of the Bible are you currently reading?

2. Your favorite book altogether?

3. How has the Bible been impacting your life?

You don’t have to answer all of the questions, but feel free to share anything that you like about God’s Word. Happy Sabbath!

Active, but not quite.

It’s here! The best month is here! Have a flower!

My blog is more or less flower themed anyway. The signature at the end of most of my posts contains flowers and my background image is a flower. Anyway, let’s get down to business.

This month, I’ll be more active when it comes to checking in with the blogs I follow, but I’ll be posting here and there. I’ll also be changing my blog header quite a bit as my homage to Spring (mostly flowers). I wanted to give the blog a Spring feel as I did for Fall last year, but I know I won’t have the time or energy to do so; I’ll just change my header every now and then to commemorate this beautiful season!

I am also making some changes where it concerns the daily scriptures: they’re now going to be weekly. Last month, I said I wanted to work on the social media articles, but I didn’t get around to doing it. I may make an attempt again this month.

Challenge for avril

I had another challenge in mind, but when I came across this one…

This is great! 30 Day Writing Challenge @Holly Hanshew Elkins Taylor might be good for the new year.

…on Pinterest, I decided to do it although I’ve read it halfway. 

Blessed avril to all!

When (False) Idols Fall.

Short Story #23
Christian YA (or sort of)

When Agnes found her best friend, Reece, she was bawling her eyes out in the girls’ washroom. Thinking that someone did something terrible to her BFF, Agnes quickly dove into action in comforting her.

“Reece, what’s wrong? Why are you crying like this? Who hurt you?”

Reece blew her nose into a tissue and looks at her friend with teary chocolate brown eyes. “Didn’t you hear?” she babbled. “He… He was just arrested.”

Agnes was confused. Her best friend had two older sisters and no brothers. Reece’s father was the principal of the school they were currently attending and he gave a speech to the morning assembly half an hour ago. So “Who was arrested?”

“They found him with an underage girl…”

This was getting weirder by the second. She helps Reece off the floor and took her over to the sink to wash her face. She was thankful that the bell had gone for the second period and the students were currently in class. Yet, she was aware that anyone can walk into the washroom at any given moment and she didn’t want them to find Reece this way.

“Come now, we have French and…”

“I’m not going to that stupid French class!” Reece yelled in anger. “Not when Matty is probably going to prison for a lifetime and the class is going to make fun of me.”

The remark made Agnes’ blood run cold. So this is what the tears were all about? Some Hollywood B-lister who didn’t know that some California native existed and was the president of his so-call fan club?

Agnes didn’t want to know how she’ll feel when/if it was her favorite celebrity’s turn to fall. But after witnessing her best friend falling victim to celebrity worship, the illusion was shattered and she wondered if she too was guilty of such idol worship. When she got home that evening, she ripped posters of her favorite boy band off the wall and got down on her knees to ask God to forgive her of putting man on a pedestal and to give her a new heart in which He could dwell in.

And the spirituality theme continues in my stories. 🙂 People will worship anything and anyone because they’re sheep looking for a shepherd to guide them. In this present world, many people worship celebrities, sometimes without even knowing it. We put too much effort in idolizing celebrities (including social media stars) instead of God. We tend to put them on a pedestal forgetting that in the end, they have selfish desires and tendencies just like us. None of them are sinless.

God does not grant dual citizenship: you cannot eat at the Lord’s table and dance with the devil at the same time.

There is no such thing as a sexy baby!

This series shows how sick and twisted the world is quickly becoming and it ain’t no picnic. In the coming weeks, I’ll be focusing more on these type of topics.

Living in this world is giving me a headache and robbing me of my peace of mind. When it comes to children, perverts are getting sicker by the second. Child sex robots are being manufactured to treat pedophiles/rapists who want to be cured. How is this possible and what is it really curing? This will encourage the urges and eventually, the sicko will want the real thing. This is beyond disgusting and creepy, but the real question is: what not to expect in this sick world that we’re living in?

How can people be okay with this?

That’s why when celebrities try to bring light to issues that are hidden in the dark, I don’t believe every word coming out of their mouth for they don’t practice what they preach and in the end, most of them end up exposing their children for the world to see on social media.

When Blake Lively gave a speech on child pornography, many people called it emotional. I did not feel anything coming from this woman. She blah blahed about this and that and yet, she worked with child molester Woody Allen. She wore a plunging neckline to talk at this important conference and her body language told a different story. 

And Salma Hayek gave a very weird speech about Blake Lively before introducing her on the stage. Did Hayek visit a bar before coming to this event? 

If a non-celebrity was trying to bring awareness to this terrible issue, they wouldn’t have been given a platform as big as this, for mind-controlled-celebrity-obsessed-fans wouldn’t give their time to listen. While it’s nice that Miss Lively is given a platform to be a voice for those poor children, spare me for this was scripted just as everything else in Hollywood where the cameras never stop rolling. Hollywood is CRAWLING with pedos! Maybe Lively should speak out against them. Wait…

Never forget that Miss Lively called child molester Woody Allen “empowering to women”. She doesn’t get a do-over because of that speech. She defended this man.

Then we have a distasteful promo for SNL in which host John Mulaney walks into a bar and orders a Shirley Temple drink only to be bought a literal Shirley Temple (a child). Temple was perhaps the most oversexualized child in the history of Hellywood. I’ve never seen a movie of hers (thank God!), but I do know enough to talk about her which I’ll be doing at another time for I may need more than water to get through the writing.

People can call it a joke, but you don’t joke about children and you certainly don’t over-sexualize them. This is why many former child stars can’t seem to adjust when they’re no longer wanted by the film industry. 

Then there’s this:

With pedophilia a rampant thing in Hollywood, you’ll think that celebrities wouldn’t be making fun of it. There is no such thing as a sexy baby! What is wrong with these old fools? Tom Hanks should be ashamed of himself! I know it’s from 2011, but the clip is still disturbing to see how they sexualized that little girl. Plus she’s singing a song from the rock band Poison and is all like, “Talk dirty to me,” (what does she know about talking dirty?) in the pageant segment and adults laugh at this? It’s not funny. And Tom Hanks is all like, “Sexy baby. Sexy baby. Such a sexy baby.” and clapping like an idiot. 

Jimmy Fallon has a segment on his show call Kid Theater in which he read scenes written by elementary school kids with his guests and I think it’s pretty neat. I know Hanks was on one of the episodes, but I only watched the one with TC and I enjoyed it. They need to show children in this light instead of sexing them up in their dialogues and shows. Some of the writing is really good. Keep in mind, some of these children are as young as seven years old.

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 

For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 

Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,

Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2 Timothy 3:1-5
