Carl Blechen - Gothic Church Ruin
“From faith to doubt
I’m hardwired to short-out”
- Every Time I Die (I Didn’t Want To Join Your Stupid Cult Anyway)
If you think the mainstream media in America is biased, dishonest, and full of agendas, wait until you find out about American mainstream Christianity.
It’s so easy to get hurt by church because it’s hard for people to really get to know Jesus. It’s easy but not everyone gives up easily because the gate and road is narrow that leads to life. So narrow that only Jesus can fit. You only get in by Him. And you know, being popular is sometimes more attractive. People praising us and giving us attention we yield to before we do Jesus. Unless you give it all to God, you haven’t given anything to Him. Something will draw you away when you believe you live because of you and not because of Him.
Sometimes we can be so hurt by ‘bad church’ that we try our best to expose the worst about them that we lose ourselves there and unknowingly become just like those who we are trying prove wrong. Holy Spirit is the best at conviction because He does it by being good to people when they least deserve it. He still died for us, all of us. His grace is sufficient.
Grim headlines, missing people, the monster lives in the city and roams its streets. Kneeling in rotten churches, holy water carries alcohol.
EPSILON: You know pi?
SIMMONS: What about pi?
EPSILON: Yeah, the thing is, I solved it.
SIMMONS: What do you mean you solved it?
EPSILON: I mean that’s what a hotshot I am. I fuckin’ solved it. Like, calculated it so much, I got to the end.
EPSILON: You wish it was bullshit. The last number is 4. Read it and fucking weep.
SIMMONS: It’s not 4 you jackass, it’s fucking nothing. There is no end.
EPSILON: Said the smug organic matter with a lifespan.
