What kind of servant are you? It is imperative that we study to find out. Jesus said we will know them by their fruits, and that includes knowing ourselves. Paul told us more than once to examine ourselves to see. He also said not all they who claim to belong to Jesus really do. 🔥 So, whose servant are you? 🔥 . . . **please tag a friend, comment, and share, so that more people see these posts, and please follow @theadventtruth for more Biblical content, 🔥the interaction helps the algorithm show my posts more🔥** #Jesus #EllenWhite #EllenGWhite #SpiritofProphecy #MoralLaw #10Commandments #salvation #TheNewCovenant #NewCovenant #BibleProphecy #TheOldCovenant #OldCovenant #RemnantChurch #Sabbath #SeventhdayAdventist #audioverse.com #ProtestantReformation #GodisLove #Christian #Protestant #TheGreatControversy #ThreeAngelsMessage #theadventtruth https://www.instagram.com/p/COq24w5hn6Y/?igshid=b8o2aa72ato1

anyone ever think about the fact that god purposely hardened rameses’ heart so that he would be forced to kill egypt’s firstborns? because i do.
exodus 9:12 and the lord hardened pharaoh’s heart and he would not listen to moses and aaron, just as the lord had said
even if it was not god who hardened rameses’ heart, child genocide is not the proper answer.

like the entire premise of GND2 is that a public school teacher answers a question about jesus in her class and then they have a disciplinary hearing and eventually it’s brought to court by the ACLU bc they are alleging it violates separation of church and state... but the instance they are talking about i pretty much don’t think anyone would actually argue violates the constitution bc it’s like: *lesson about gandhi, MLK and non-violence* student: isn’t that like when jesus said love your enemies? and then the teacher says yes, recites the quote from matthew the girl was referring to, and then a quote from MLK where he makes the connection “christ furnished the spirit and motivation and gandhi furnished the method” & then another student is like it didn’t work bc jesus got himself killed and she’s like yeah but so did MLK, it just depends on your idea of success, both started lasting movements and then says she admires them both for their courage to stand up for their beliefs.... like that’s ALL. and then they build the entire rest of the movie around everyone thinking this is horrible and violating church and state and they act like it’s illegal just to mention jesus or religion and it’s like . WHAT. what alternate universe do you live in where the world is like this and they literally have the ACLU lawyer say “we’re trying to prove once and for all that god is dead” LIKE that is not . a thing. like jkgkfllf. and this conversation she’s on trial for is like okay, they can probably assume she’s a christian bc she quoted exactly from a particular gospel but like nothing she says is actually preaching and it’s not illegal for students to just be aware of their teachers religion. and then now they’re trying to say in court that it was bad she invited a school administrator to a ceremony at her church honoring multiple students from the school for their community service, bc it was during work hours ? and i’m like nfnfjfj if it’s about students getting an award or something it doesn’t seem weird to invite people from the school even if it is during work hours... and then they try to make it bad that she’s collecting money for a faith based charity which like maybe a little bit better of an argument but do you KNOW how many charities in the US are faith based?? especially in small majority christian towns ? anyway i also just don’t understand why they have the ACLU as like pouncing on this case as something they could use to bolster separation of church and state when like. there are so many way more blatant cases of this all over i don’t see why they would choose the one that’s like literally pretty much not relevant djfjjfjf ... it’s just an unbelievable premise and all of the characters are total caricatures of what evangelical christians think the godless secular world is like. even tho the majority of the US is still christian like. why do christians like this want to be oppressed sooooo bad
The local Catholic church: *solemnly tolls the angelus*
The protestant church down the road:

"The rationalistic spirit in which the Protestant reformers attacked the practices of traditional religion was not brought to bear on their own beliefs. These depended on faith and on the authority of scripture. But once the forces of skepticism and iconoclasm were released, there was no stopping them. Secular humanism takes the Reformation to its ultimate extreme, turning the Protestant critique onto Protestant faith. In this second revolution, devotion to the words of the Bible in itself becomes a form of idolatry. What reason is there to accept its authority? As for God, why should he not be like other gods, a phantom of the human mind? Those whose religion is founded on a protest against other people's unreasoning faith have been ill equipped to defend an unreasoning faith of their own.
This ultimate reformation, the protest against Protestantism, leaves man as the source of all goddesses and gods, the master of desacralized nature, the only conscious rational being in an inanimate world. For the secular humanist, nothing is sacred except human life. Indeed humanism can easily become a religion itself, glorifying man and his wondrous works. But the spirit of negation will never be far away: why should man be sacred? He is just another species thrown up by the blind forces of evolution and no doubt doomed to extinction like the dinosaurs. In the end, nothing at all is sacred.
The results are disastrous. The desecration of the world now seems appallingly destructive, even in the eyes of many humanists. We need to recover a sense of the sacred."

When I was in undergrad, during my methodology class, my professor (and advisor) was asked, "How do you keep your journal articles jargon-free?" and his answer was, "After a certain level, you simply cannot, and to do so would actually make your writing bad historical writing." He then went on to compare two different articles by the same author written in a journal where undergraduates can submit, and a journal where only phd. can submit.
The difference in language was subtle but noticeable, because there is an implicit understanding that the article is written for someone who has the necessary background on the subject. The writer was able to not have to explain every concept in a journal for phd., since the readers were supposed to bring a baseline of knowledge, or know how and where to go to be educated (or who to ask). This is despite the fact that both were available via jstor.
There will always be people having conversations about things that are beyond your understandig on the topic. I do not instantly understand nuclear physics or computer science or organic chemistry, but I give credentialed people that I know aren't cranks the benefit of doubt that they know what's going on. This respect is often not extended to humanities people talking about their work because "blue curtain is just blue" people think the high school education they mostly rejected puts them on the same field of discussion as people educated on the subject. Yet, these are the people who get mad when they find that rudely interjecting into a conversation where everyone else is on the same page and saying understanding the conversation is too hard in an extremely hostile manner gets a answered with hostility.
The bottom line is, you aren't entitled to understanding everything you come across instantly. If you do not understand the conversation, it is your job to either get educated on the subject if it seems interesting enough, or move on if it seems incomprehensible and is not something you'd care about. If you enter a conversation you are not ready for, that is on you, not people bewildered at your antics.

Wait… do ALL ex Christians have a connection to the concept of a barbed wire noose??? Because i wrote an allegory poem comparing Christianity to that, but also as I’m scrolling down the rts tags I’m seeing other art referencing that???? That’s just a really cool coincidence. A funny one, in a way, but it’s also fascinating that some of us have conceptualized our trauma in that specific niche way

Each time I wish I would've gotten into sports in high school and college I remind myself that it's still not too late to take exercise and flexibility training seriously. I enjoy the whole, reborn with my memories and trying to take this new life serious aspect of Mushoku Tensei a lot, cuz deep down I regret the man I've become. Not looking for validation just like, am I in the midst of my midlife crisis or is this a product of the anxiety of freedom in an atomized modern society with the protestant work ethic as a religious calling or what lol
