So you wanna know about me? OK...
Name: Flying Dragonite
Controversial topics (You are welcome to PM me and argue about it, it'd be most amusing to me):
Pro-choice or Pro-life: Pro-life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The issue is down to this: Abortion is MURDER, plain and simple, no if, ands, or BUTS about it! I DON'T CARE WHAT THE CIRCUMSTANCES ARE CONCERNING THE CREATION OF THE BABY, IT'S STILL JUST A BABY THAT DESERVES LIFE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! take a deep breath, FD, and let it out slowly x sighs x Sorry, I feel really strongly about it. The Constitution protects the life of a baby while in his/her mother's womb. If a man pushes his pregnant wife around and ends up killing the baby, he can be charged with murder of an unborn child. If this man can be charged, why not the doctor who injects a needle into the poor helpless baby? "But a woman should be able to decide what goes on in her own body!" The minute that child is conceived, the woman is no longer alone in her body. She should not be able to decide if her child LIVES or not! If the woman really wanted NOT to have a child, she should have used protection! "But what if she was raped! She didn't have a choice then! She shouldn't have to live with the fact that her RAPIST'S child is within her!" Ok... I feel for women who have been raped, I really do. But that doesn't change the fact that he/she is a baby! He/she is not the rapist; its not their fault that they were the result of rape. They are still a child; they are still life.
Gay/Lesbian Relationships/Marriage: I am bisexual, but I figured this out only very recently. I have never had a problem with it; never will, especially now that I know. I have very dear friends and even family members who are gay or lesbian. They are perfectly NORMAL, NICE people who do not deserve the stigma that exists against them. I think it is just plain WRONG that the Bible declares it a sin. I guess if that makes you think I'm not a good Christian, then whatever; but I just don't think that is right... People should have the freedom to be happy, and if being gay or lesbian makes you happy, then GO FOR IT! Ignore all those IDIOTS out there who make fun of you and look down upon you and all that CRAP; and BE HAPPY! Don't let the cruel world bring you down. It's not worth it. The best revenge is to continue living your life the way YOU want to live it; and become HAPPY because it's the best thing for YOU.
Child Abuse... well all Abuse in General:What can I say? ... its wrong, plain and simple. I am a victim, I struggle every day against it, but I'm a survivor, and I wanna say to all of you out there like me: DON'T GIVE IN. It's so easy to believe that the whole world is against you, that no one cares, that no one will EVER care; that you deserve the pain you are going through; but NO. Life isn't fair, and the world is cruel, but there are people out there who care. you can't give in, because its what the abusers want. They want you beaten down and submissive, taking it and taking it, and taking it until you can't take it any longer... then you break, one way or another, to where you either die from the brokenness or you take on the whole world as your enemy. Don't let it become you. Rise above the abuse; I KNOW it's hard; it's so VERY VERY Difficult... I've felt so... unlike myself sometimes... I want others to feel the same pain that I've felt, just because it hurts so much that I can't keep it in any longer... what better way to get rid of it than inflict it on others, am I right? But that's wrong... I try so very hard everyday, and it's such a struggle, but in the end, I believe it will all be worth it. Just a few more years and I'll finally leave my home and start a new life; but of course my scars will never fully heal; the best I can do is use my writing to express my pain... So if my writing is more than a little dark, you'll know why, lol... That's why I urge fellow abused: find a way to channel the pain in a way that hurts no one more. I read fantasy as an escape. I write my dark dark terrible feelings down through fanfiction and my own stories; I am an ARTIST! Find your art and use it. And finally... NEVER GIVE UP HOPE. Hope for a better future; hope for the silver lining in the dark clouds; hope for a better outlook; hope that will keep you going. Only YOU can give up hope; and once you've given up Elpis; she can never come back. Give up Hope, and you'll have given up on life itself. Don't give up Elpis, as she is the only thing that NO ONE can take away from you. She can only be given up, never taken away.
Musings on a Bible verse that I, (FlyingDragonite15) wrote recently:
1 Corinthians 13: 1-3 states, “If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy, but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s word with power, revealing all of his mysteries and making everything as plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain ‘Jump’ and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give all I own to the poor, or even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, no matter what I believe, no matter what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.”
I’ve always found this Bible verse to be very interesting. From the very first time I heard it, breaking into one of my now favorite Christian Rock songs, it has struck a chord within me. I found that it was true in every aspect of life. I think that every human being agrees with this verse, even if it is buried very deep within them.
It speaks a truth long forgotten by human beings, that we are nothing without the very beautiful and wonderful gift that God has given us: the ability to love. Love is a choice, it cannot be manufactured, it cannot be bought. Love is great. Love is kind. Love is unfailing and never ending. Love is what gives meaning to our lives.
That being said, why has love become taboo in our world today? Love is the most important thing a human can have, so why do we treat it with such disdain? I see no love in my daily basis. I see people pass in the halls, angry, resentful, ungrateful of their lives. I’ve seen bullying so bad it breaks my heart to see, let alone experience it. I have seen when that man beats his daughter because he has too much in his past to deal with. I’ve seen the woman who has too much to deal with ask her daughter if she’s evil. I have seen that daughter cry herself to sleep at night because she is convinced her parents hate her. I have seen as she was torn away from everything she knew and forced to put on a happy face for the world while breaking on the inside.
But I’ve also seen love. I see love when I look upon my very new 10-day old brother, when I smile fondly as my terror of a two-year old sister pushes over my grandmother’s plant pot, spilling soil across the floor and cracking the pot. Even in the throes of her worst, I cannot help but love her. That’s the definition of love, I think. Despite our attempts to describe it, love is indescribable. Love is caring deeply for my step-father even though he hurt me in so many ways, scarring me for life in more than one way. Love is taking care of my grandmother when she gets older, even though she shuns me for being homosexual. Love is everything I stated and more.
So the question is: why don’t we see more of it? We need it as a race, we need it far more than we need money or the approval of other people. While food nourishes my physical body, love nourishes my spiritual body. And isn’t it our spiritual body that matters the most? After all, our spiritual body is what is going to heaven to be with God as our physical body is returned to the earth from whence it came, when the time is right.
There are many people who claim the Christian faith as theirs, but how many truly practice it? Perhaps people will claim that I am being too harsh, but I don’t think so. There is too much corruption and oppression in this world. We Christians cannot be doing our duty properly. Remember, God doesn’t interfere in our lives. We cannot sit idly by as our brethren in Africa, North Korea, Iraq, and many other countries I could name, strain under the heavy chains of starvation, oppression of their God-given rights, slavery, human trafficking, and worse.
I will openly admit, I haven’t done a lot myself. For so long, I tried to refuse Jesus from my life. I have been stuck in sin for so long, it is very hard to drag myself out. I have had the hardest time, and still have a hard time sometimes, believing that God cares for me and the rest of the human race when there is so many horrible things in the world. I have had very horrible things happen to me. This makes it very hard for me to believe in the God that cares. But I have given my life to Jesus recently, and I know that I must give everything to Jesus. All my baggage and all my sin. Then I must live as he would.
And I know he would cringe at the state of the world now. Truly, things have only gotten worse since Jesus left the world, and I weep for the human race. I feel like too many churches only go through the motions and don’t do enough to spread the Word. One church has given me the answers I sought, while all the other churches have told me ‘it’s about faith.’ What is faith? And what does it have to do with why Jesus would give himself for me of all people? Why would he give himself for any of us? We’re a horrible race, human beings, terrible and cruel. Yet God has given us chance after chance, sending his own son to die on a cross for us. And how do we repay him? By doing the bare minimum to get into the kingdom of heaven and not caring about the rest of the masses. We humans are a selfish race and it disgusts me. Sometimes, I disgust myself.
So what do we do? How do we fix this lack of love in the world? How do we make this world a better place? How do we change the world to a world of love? My answer: one step at a time, one person, one family, one community, one city, one state, one nation, one world at a time. Pass on the kindness! God rewards those who do good! One Simple Act of Random Kindness, pass it on!
Well that's it for now...
