Random Post #3

If people are smart enough to counterfeit money, who don't they go and get a job? I mean, you go to prison simply for counterfeiting. You've gotta be smart to counterfeit, so counterfeiters are smart enough to have almost any job.

I wish that nice people didn't get picked on. People think that since they're nice, that they either don't get hurt, or they don't mind getting picked on. I, however, know that this is not true. No names mentioned, but there are two people I can think of who get picked on way more than is good for them.

I feel like having a philosophical debate about the end of the world. I've done it once with Nathan and Eric, and it was very enlightening. So if you're talking to me on Sunday, please bring it up so I don't forget. =)

On the topic, here's a song by Becoming the Archetype:

End of the Age:

The earth is shaking because of His wrath
The mountains tremble at the sound of His voice
He pulls down the sky to crush His enemies
He descends upon them with fire

He is clothed in greatness
His voice resounds through all the earth

His vengeance no longer is contained
His light destroys the darkness
If He speaks the earth will crumble
If He moves, the universe will fall

He is clothed in greatness
His voice resounds through all the earth
He is clothed in greatness
His voice resounds through all the earth

With the valleys of the seas exposed
And the surface of the earth laid bare
He reached down into the void
He reached down and took hold of me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

(Hallelujah!)

that is a very profound thought you have there.

oh, yeah I totally agree. it's sad when people do that. I have a person or two in mind as well :\

That is weird, because I was seriously talking to my dad about that last night. I'll try to remember to remind you. ;)

this is my favorite verse out of that: "With the valleys of the seas exposed
And the surface of the earth laid bare
He reached down into the void
He reached down and took hold of me"
that's like--wow.

great post, though I don't think I'll take you up in your challenge for a debate - I've never been a good debater, since I need time to study, think, and pray before I make any answers. :-P

And that's an amazing song. I've never heard it/seen it before, so thanks so much for posting that.

Emily - Not profound, really... just a thought. =)
I think that some picking on is fine, especially when one is a close friend, but when it's not a close friend and there's too much of it, it has gone too far.
Well, Friday is gonna be a good opportunity for it. Wouldn't it be amazing if we just talked about theological stuff all night and didn't play games? But I don't want to neglect my non-theologically-minded guests, either.
It's kinda funny, 'cause although it's a very vicious explanation of the world's end, it is hopeful, too.

Marissa -
Maybe not a debate, then... maybe just a "talk." =)
You're very welcome! It's a brand new song... like two weeks old, and it's heavy metal, so I'm not surprised that you haven't heard it before. =)

ok, maybe more like an 'interesting thought'..... You have the most interesting, thought provoking thoughts sometimes. ;)

Yeah, well, I guess I see what you mean.

That would definitely be amazing. I would seriously love that. You know what the main thing I asked for for Christmas was? Theology/apologetic books, haha! But, yeah, everyone wouldn't be appreciative of that =P

That is true.
