Having a faithful friend is one of God’s greatest blessings. No matter what’s going on in your life, you can count on that person to stick with you. However, there is no guarantee that you won’t lose that friend. Unavoidable circumstances like relocation, illness, or death may take your companion away, but if you are a Christian, you have a friend who will never leave you.
He’s the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus called the Helper. He’s no fair-weather friend, slipping in and out of our lives when it’s to His advantage. When He takes up residence within us, He comes to stay forever (John 14:16).
In most human relationships, we try to avoid the use of sweeping negative or positive statements such as, “You are always late,” or “You are always there for me.” However, such superlative declarations are completely fitting when applied to the Holy Spirit. Listen to how the Lord Jesus described Him:
“He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you” (John 14:26). “He will testify about Me” (John 15:26). “He will guide you into all the truth” (John 16:13). “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you” (John 16:15).
Throughout the New Testament epistles, we find even more descriptions of this marvelous companion. His ministry in our lives is varied, and His accomplishments in and through us are many. How wealthy we are to have the Holy Spirit. He is a friend who truly sticks closer than a brother!
In sha ALLAH

Estava dormindo tranquilamente, quando acordei com uma voz grave de homem me chamando: _ Ei! Escriba acorda. Acordei de um susto e procurei puxar rapidamente o cobertor na intenção de cobrir meu corpo, mas notei no mesmo instante que estava vestida e sentada na cama, olhei para o lado e vi meu corpo dormindo tranquilamente, olhei para frente e lá estava quem havia me chamado; um homem de aparência bonita e confiável que aparentava ter no Maximo trinta anos apesar do cansaço no modo de olhar demonstrar ter muito, muito mais, estava elegantemente trajado e carregava consigo um belo sobre tudo, além de uma espada com a qual parecia brincar como se a mesma fosse apenas um prolongamento de suas mãos. E me olhava com a mesma curiosidade com a qual eu olhava para ele. Lembrei ter pensado: “_ Será que não tenho sossego nem para dormir em paz?” Ele me olhou com um sorriso zombeteiro e parecendo ler meus pensamentos respondeu: _ Desculpe minha querida, mas quem se aluga ao plano espiritual não descansa a hora que quer ou deseja. Fiquei sem graça por ele ter ouvido meus pensamentos e falei tentando disfarçar o constrangimento: _ Quem é você? Em que posso ajudar? _ Pode me chamar de Sete Espadas. E você, a não ser que eu tenha batido na porta errada, deve ser um dos escribas... _ Que escribas? Perguntei curiosa. _ Foram escolhidos sete escribas para estar relatando mudanças que estarão ocorrendo na umbanda e nas religiões de forma geral e, também para relatarem a história das entidades da esquerda da umbanda e suas histórias de vida com o objetivo de desmistificar e tirar essa imagem pejorativa que nos acompanha por demasiado tempo, mas que com a vinda da transformação deste mundo; deve, também, ser revista, para que assim deixemos de ser vistos como demônios para sermos vistos como, realmente, somos; seres em processo evolutivo que cometeram seus erros e pagaram muito caro por eles, Cont.

Seeing all of those outstanding arts is a great fortune for who's adored them. I was a lucky girl to have an opportunity to walk all over around this building. However, when I see this picture after a while, the authority that religion had, comes to my mind earlier than its art.
Omg this reminds me of the trailer of that new movie “Breakthrough” with Chrissy Metz from “This is Us” where her kid falls through some ice and shit big bummer so sad but anyway the doctor is like “ma’am with my 30 years of medical training and experience, I’m gonna be straight with you the odds are pretty low that he lives” and then the mom like says a prayer and is like “YOU DONT KNOW MY SON” like her little kid is gonna somehow have the physical strength and grit to pull through a fatal situation just because he gets A’s on his report card or some shit like GET A GRIP KATE
Reposted from @greenlanemosque - Baqarah | Ayaat 285-286
The last two verses of Surah Baqarah carry a particular significance as were not revealed on Earth. Rather they were revealed to Muhammad ﷺ above the heavens on his journey of Israa wa Miraaj.
The Messenger has believed in what was revealed to him from his Lord, and [so have] the believers. All of them have believed in Allah and His angels and His books and His messengers, [saying], "We make no distinction between any of His messengers." And they say, "We hear and we obey. [We seek] Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the [final] destination." (285)
Allah does not charge a soul except [with that within] its capacity. It will have [the consequence of] what [good] it has gained, and it will bear [the consequence of] what [evil] it has earned. "Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people." (286)

In short, religion is a choice, not the other way around.
Religion is like a ball chain to which people hold the key and they can free themselves from, unlike other chains with which society binds them.
The chains of society are based in real life, people take it one step further and bind their mind, making out of themselves alive but chronically dead beings.
Many people have that luxury, think of those that can't do that because religion is imposed by the state(Islam). So many people take for granted any information, or better said misinformation when in the times we live today information is at their fingertips.
A simple search will just show how full of lies, vile, illogical, poisonous all religions are, the "GOD" they promote and to what they lead. A most recent example in Christianity, the war between protestants and Catholics in Ireland.
PS: My answer was of my own, not taken from anywhere, and as I am a fan of skepticism a search will reveal that 😁😋.
"Enjoy ye all the feast of faith: Receive ye all the riches of loving-kindness. Let no one bewail his poverty, for the Universal Kingdom has been revealed. Let no one weep for his iniquities, for pardon has shown forth from the grave. Let no one fear death, for the Savior’s death has set us free. He that was held prisoner of it has annihilated it. By descending into Hell, He made Hell captive. He embittered it when it tasted of His flesh. And Isaiah, foretelling this, did cry: 'Hell was embittered, when it encountered Thee in the lower regions'. It was embittered, for it was abolished. It was embittered, for it was mocked. It was embittered, for it was slain. It was embittered, for it was overthrown. It was embittered, for it was fettered in chains. It took a body, and met God face to face. It took earth, and encountered Heaven. It took that which was seen, and fell upon the unseen. •
O Death, where is your sting? O Hell, where is your victory? Christ is risen, and you are overthrown. Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen. Christ is risen, and the angels rejoice. Christ is risen, and life reigns. Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave. For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. To Him be glory and dominion unto ages of ages. Amen." - Excerpt from the Paschal Sermon of St. John Chrysostom --------------------------------------------------------------------

En Córdoba, en la región española de Andalucía, conmemoración del beato Álvaro de Zamora o Álvaro de Córdoba, presbítero de la Orden de Predicadores, que se hizo célebre por su modo de predicar y contemplar la Pasión del Señor (c. 1430).
que estás en el cielo,
santificado sea tu Nombre;
venga a nosotros tu reino;
hágase tu voluntad
en la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día;
perdona nuestras ofensas,
como también nosotros perdonamos
a los que nos ofenden;
no nos dejes caer en la tentación,
y líbranos del mal. Amén.

Case against God
I know religion is such an easy target but I find it interesting that a human being can posses the ability to love and forgive someone for pretty much anything they have done but people will worship a petty god who will send you to an eternity of torture in hell for simply not believing in him for example. Just for using the same logical brain that he supposedly gave you in the first place to question something without evidence.
Any comfort, kindness, and morals you can find with religion and God you can find without God and religion so please go ahead and tell me why believing in your God is necessary? Some may claim that heaven is a place where no sadness or pain exists but if my mother let's say was Christian and I was atheist who was doomed for hell according to the religion , I don't think my mom would not feel sadness or upset about me burning in eternity in hell and vice versa. Horus, Osiris, Attis, mithra, Heracles, Dionysus, Tammuz, Adonis, all Gods who were once said to walk the earth way before Jesus was said to walk the earth and many of them were also said to have raised the dead, heal the sick, turn water into wine, and have said that they are the "son of God", the Jesus story isn't even original but please tell me why nobody worships any of these said "gods". If you claim that not believing in your God means that I'm doomed for an eternity hell and torture, I'm sorry that is offensive and I could not care less because I personally don't think that anyone I've ever met would do that to anyone nor support that belief no matter how "bad" the person is. So I want nothing to do with your "God" even if you've proved your gods existence tomorrow.
Pray to god to help the victims of a hurricane caused by god ~ religious logic
***Comment Below the Worship Song That You Connect With The Most***
Sitting here in our auditorium thinking about all God did in our Church this Sunday.
I grew up in a liturgical Church where we professed our faith in creeds and in practicing the sacraments, and now I Pastor at a Church where we sing contemporary worship songs LOUDLY and are about as non-liturgical as you can get.
I love both of those styles so much. I believe God reveals Himself in worship that relies on ancient truths, and in worship that references new style.
God is bigger than our preference. God is bigger than our style. Our worship should be about Him no matter how it sounds.
Speaking at 5 pm @uclalabor on #Muslim & #Jewish approaches to #sanctuary. My kind of #interfaith. Aryeh Cohen and I have been doing the work as scholars and in the streets for years. He is co-presenting. Look for more from me as I begin a new stream of public scholarship and popular education on the topic of social justice religion and interfaith activism. 2019 is going to be fun. What do you want to hear about?
