I don’t think people love me. They love versions of me I have spun for them, versions of me they have construed in their minds. The easy versions of me, the easy parts of me to love.

The Missing One

Thought I might post the interesting short story my little 9 year old sis wrote. You can read it after the break!

I’m not going to use tumblr mobile anymore. Something’s wrong with it. Like, it multiplies a blog entry when I post it. Weird.

The human imagination is often disastrous when left to its own devices.

Explaining the things ”banned” in the Bible

While I normally don’t post a thing like this, I’m making an exception right now.

So I keep seeing on my dash various posts on the things the Bible supposedly ‘bans’, like eating meat, pork and various other things. While it may be true that it was banned in the past because of the Mosaic Law, those restrictions were later lifted because the Mosaic Law was abolished.

And those laws were made because of a reason. According to Dr. Short in The Bible and Modern Medicine (pp. 40,41), “True, we eat the pig, the rabbit and the hare, but these animals are liable to parasitic infections and are safe only if the food is well cooked. The pig is an unclean feeder, and harbours two worms, trichina and a tape worm, which may be passed on to man. The danger is minimal under present conditions in this country, but it would have been far otherwise in Palestine of old, and such food was better avoided.”

Among other things, I’d like to explain this one first because almost everybody misunderstands the words at Leviticus 11:7-8.

So I hope this clears a bit of the issues people find in the Bible. If someone asks me to explain more, I’d love to expound more the laws found in the Bible that are misinterpreted.

If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
