Philosophy

Late night calls come to my surprise You’re a little too late I cannot translate These meanings you arrange like a science experiment My butanes running out but my knife cuts deep Dissected on this petri dish your words spread like disease I play mad scientist, transcribing what you say I can't get this right it's consuming me, late nights Lighting strikes, tesla coils burn bright The formula is destroying me, blood stained lab coats Your under my knife, show me your mind Parts of you under this microscope Magnified so deep, I see you crawling As you try to escape your victim to this now Your in disbelief, "how could this turn around on me?" You got what you wanted, this mind surgery You didn't think me capable, you had me on my knees Unsuspecting violence, you've...

Dear feminists, You claim that you are all about equal rights for women or gender equality or whatever it is you're saying; but... in reality, your agenda speaks otherwise. And when I mean otherwise, I mean your purpose for the movement is completely different from what you claim you want to promote. Apart from supporting the movement of killing the unborn children (aka: abortion), I see you putting the hashtag #killallmen on Twitter, next thing, you want to get rid of Father's Day, then you want to ban the word "bossy", and then teach little girls how to swear all in the name of feminism? Yeah... real women's rights movement - not. And btw, I am a woman. Yes - a woman who is strongly against this movement. Though I am still at my early stage of adulthood, let it be known to you that I...

To Chris McCann/EBible Fellowship, Gunther Von Haringa Sr./Bible Ministries International, the Latter Rain Facebook group, and the rest of the modern-day Pharisees dragging God's Word through the mud, trifling with a living document and mixing it with your own dead and deadly message: Salvation is not over. Frankly I would be surprised if you bother clicking through the below URL and actually reading the Bible study to which it points. In an effort to promote this Bible study to its target audience, I've run up against the tallest and thickest and hardest brick wall ever built. You all declare this murderous message and take careful steps to make sure that no one is allowed to challenge you. Why is that? Why do you not allow comments on your websites and why have closed,...

you've heard this countless times over your life, but it does get better. it may not get better today or tomorrow or even this year, but I can promise you it does get better. surround yourself with positive friends and family, and make sure you have someone you can talk to if you need it, but don't take advantage. your friends need a listening ear too sometimes. go to therapy, don't be ashamed. if a health professional recommends medication, have a trial period. but please be aware that meds are not the only answer to your mental health issues, so don't worry if none are right for you. don't keep secrets from your therapist, they want to help and can't do it without your full cooperation. admit when you need help. try to find a positive coping mechanism, and try different ones....

Dear Super Christian, I type this as a struggling Christian. One who struggles with lust, depression, identity, bitterness, anger, etc. When I wake up most days, the thing I probably want to do the least is get in the scriptures. I know the scriptures give me life in the long run but sometimes it just doesn't seem relevant to the day. The church, although I know is supposed to be a hospital for the broken, seems like a museum for the marvelous. Sculptures crafted together in perfect fashion to show the world how broken it is and how well put together the church is. This is not my condemnation. I don't have that right. This is my observation. I tend to gravitate toward the crowd not really part of a church. Those people that the church may view as unredeemable. Those people...

23/01/2016 Dear Bishop Chartres, I am writing regarding your recent Daily Mail Article. I had to check that it wasn’t April 1st, and so, apparently, did a few other people commenting on your article. I have been aware for years of the Daily Mail being the first point of call for Church of England Publicity stunts, so to speak, and I sometimes wonder now if they do it as a backhanded jeer rather than genuinely supporting the Church or if the Daily Mail is simply degenerating in the same way the CofE is. At this moment as I write, The Daily Mail online has 3100 comments on your article, almost unanimously condemning you and the Church of England for your press article. The criticisms, exhaustive, include: • Horror at your ‘Sainting’ of David Beckham. Because as a clergyman...

Losing yourself is hard, trying to find WHO you are again? Well, it feels impossible. When you change who you are for someone else, You start to forget what YOU liked, what YOUR passions were. You lose your sense of direction but instead wait for instruction and permission. Green means red, "yes" in front of people means "no" when they' leave, you start having to watch what you say in front of your friends, co-workers and family. That life becomes their victory. Their verbal and mental abuse causing drastic wounds no one will ever see. But, when you get the nerve to leave, the BRAVERY to stand up and refuse to be told who you are, the feeling is indescribable. Scared, brave, confident, FREE. The FREEDOM will bring tears to your eyes. Then, You feel lost because its at that...

Dear 2016, I hope this finds you well rested. It's been a wild ride in 2015 and I know you must be exhausted. You've seen war and wacky weather and warped world views. You've seen great suffering, from refugees fleeing homes that are no longer safe to a dog getting its mouth taped shut. You've seen a woman with a big butt and a man with bad hair dominate every day conversation. You've seen mothers weeping with the worst kind of sorrow because police shot and killed their sons. You've seen religion held up as a torch while its flames burned those under it who weren't white enough, Christian enough, Muslim enough, Jewish enough, rich enough, straight enough, male enough, conservative enough, devout enough, loud enough, quiet enough. You've endured the social media...

To the students addressed in Dr. Piper's letter, I am sorry. I am sorry that I cannot contact you all directly and I am sorry for any hurt you may feel. I have felt hurt a lot in my life, and am very sad to say that I never found help for my problems or pain in chapel sermons when I was a student in those same seats. I wanted to. But I found no hope, only guilt. Now I could talk to you about my time at OKWU, or why I transferred before my degree was finished, but I don't want to call people out. I don't want to respond in kind, I want to respond with kindness. I don't know your names, I don't know who you are, but I want to tell you that you are loved. And while I believe in the virtue of humility, nothing has ever humbled me more than an act of love. Not a sermon about love, not a...

Dear Believer, You come to me and speak of a god that you claim you know so well. You tell me I have not truly encountered him the same way you have. You tell me I am missing out, I am not truly whole or happy unless I have him. I ask you, how are you so sure that I have not known him as well as you claim to. I have felt what people claim to be the holy spirit. I have spoke in tongues. I have wept with my brothers and sisters over those that do not know him. I have prayed until I couldn't anymore over those who do not know him. I have worshiped with my whole heart. I have longed to be with him in the end. So who are you to tell me I have not known him in this way? You tell me that you have been where I am. No. No you haven't. Have you been in a place where you were so happy and so...
