My name is Brittney. I'm 21. I love Doctor Who, Buffy (OTP = Spuffy), Sherlock, The Avengers (and pretty much all things superhero related...Batman is my favorite), and I love to read.
I know Lord of the Flies is supposed to be a very meaningful and symbolic book, but can we just talk about the fact that at the beginning of the book, Jack gives the fact that he can sing a C# as a legitimate reason for why he should be chief
MY CLASS NEVER GOT OVER THIS AND FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR WHENEVER SOMEONE DIDN’T WANT TO DO SOMETHING THEY SAID “but i can sing C# i shouldnt have to do it” AND IT STILL IS FUNNY TO ME
When you get shouted at for accidentally doing something bad
chris evans reminds me of one of those massive dogs that are supposed to be intimidating but they don’t seem to realize how big they are and just trip all over the place and curl on people’s laps and just wag their tail delightedly as they flop around on clumsy paws
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
This could help a lot of people.
Damn Family Guy may be stupid sometimes…but this shit is on. Point.
