"And Silver Light said: my friends, do not envy the success of evil. For evil success is always evil downfall. Evil is selfish, as such it cannot multiply, only take. Evil is like the parasite which sucks all the nutrients from a host, killing it, only to see himself with nothing else to maintain his own life."
Whisper and Gray advanced deeper into the city. Wherever they looked there was trash and rubbish. Gray didn't seem to care, probably because he lived in that place. But Saint Whisper his heart was like a ship, sinking. His entire life he lived in the Sacred Capital: even through all saints made vows of poverty they still managed to maintain the place clean and organized.
Whisper kept looking until he noticed some ponies living in a pile of trash. They were using newspapers to try to shield themselves from the cold. Whisper remembered a phrase one of his superiors once told him: "Look at a place. The place is a reflection of t

"And Silver Light said: 'stand fast, my children, for I sent you as lambs between wolfs. Go through the four corners of the world and say what is correct and just. Some will love you, but many more will hate you. If they want to hear the word, stand with them and share the bread. If they refuse, don't lose time: leave the place kicking dust as you leave, for the dust will be witness that your job is done'."
It has starting to get late and Saint Whisper was still going. He was tired, but he couldn't bring himself to stop: his mission kept brothering him. He feared that if he stopped for a single second something terrible could happen. He kept going through the roads, time or other seeing a small village.
Whisper went as far as his legs let him, before inevitable succumbing to the strain. Whisper only walked to near a tree shadow before finally letting himself fall on the grass. Now having time to think, he concluded that was a pretty foolish a
If God loves me why would He send me to hell?A question I've seen and heard many times. Often used to justify a sin.If God loves me why would He send me to hell? by Nilopher
People mistakenly seem to think that because Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was sufficient to clean our sins, we are forever saved regardless of what we do. His sacrifice wasn't meant to take away our sins so we could keep living a sinful life, walk away from His righteous ways and still somehow get to heaven. He sacrificed Himself for us to ensure that even if we sin, we can have the hope of being redeemed, of being forgiven and saved, if we accept our mistakes and ask forgiveness.
"He himself bore our sins" in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; "by his wounds you have been healed." ~1 Peter 2:24
Nowadays, people want to be saved, but they don't want to repent. Repentance is: "To change one's mind. A change of heart, that involves turning away from sin" (Ezekiel 14:6)
"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us fro
Jesus death was not a sacrificeJesus death was not a sacrifice.Jesus death was not a sacrifice by Nilopher
That's what some people say nowadays to invalidate Jesus death.
God is a God of order. He reigns with righteousness (Psalm 5:8, Isaiah 33:5) and He has a law (John 14:15, Psalm 119:33-35).
When a human law is broken there is a "payment" to make, either by going to jail, doing community service etc. When God's law is broken there's also a "payment" to make. It is the just thing to do.
'...sin is the transgression of the law' (1 John 3:4) and 'the wages of sin is death' (Romans 6:23). When Adam and Eve broke God's Holy Law (Romans 7:12), they sinned, condemning themselves and their generations to die.
Couldn't God make it so they wouldn't have to die? Why are the wages of sin death?
The problem here is not God. The problem is sin. When they sinned they stopped being perfect1 and imperfect people can't have perfect babies, that's why we all have (inherit2) sinful natures.
Perfect + sinless = ete
