"If I feel like there's a chance of losing someone, I'll always try to be the one that backs out first."

I saved you. I saved this city. All your worthless lives. I should've let Stannis kill you all. Yes, father. I'm guilty. Guilty. Is that what you want to hear? No, of that I'm innocent. I'm guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I'm guilty of being a dwarf. Oh? Yes I am. I've been on trial for that my ENTIRE LIFE! I did not do it. I did NOT KILL JOFFREY BUT I WISH THAT I HAD! Watching your vicious bastard die gave me more relief than a thousand lying whores! I wish I was the monster you think I am. I wish I had enough poison for the whole pack of you. I would gladly give my life to watch you all swallow it. I will NOT give my life for Joffrey's murder, and I know I'll get no justice here so I will let the Gods decide my fate. I demand trial by combat!

I am not a toy you can play with when you’re bored or lonely or horny.
I am not the girl the guy gets at the end of the movie. I am not a fantasy.
If you want me, Earn me !

Until then, we are DONE !!

Eternal Security

...or not a saved person can be lost again is a much discussed, a much disputed question. Certainly the devil hates for one to believe that a Christian is safe because this would give God all the glory. The doctrine of security gives no credit to the devil or to humans. God gets all the glory for saving and keeping. So it is the doctrine that the devil hates more than any other. Therefore if one dislikes this doctrine, you know whose side he is on. The words "eternal security" are not found in the Bible. But neither is the word substitute, or the word Trinity. Yet Christians have always believed that Christ was our substitute; that God is a Trinity. Though the exact word that we may use is not found in the Bible, the teaching is there! The terminology used by some when discussing the doctrine of the safety of the Believer may not be found exactly per say but the teaching is there, without doubt. The Bible says, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower. The righteous runeth into it and is safe." (Proverbs 18:10) "The fear of man bringeth a snare, but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." (Proverbs 29:25) The word "safe" used in both these verses, is an absolute term. You cannot be half safe. If you are only half safe then you are not safe. If you are safe then you are not in any danger. You are not safe until you are completely out of danger. The Bible says those who have trusted Christ are safe. The Bible is either right or wrong. We are safe or we are not. I......

...Blessed by God James 1:12 We all seek a blessed life. We might not use those exact words. In fact, we probably don’t. Today people talk about the “fulfilled life” or the “happy life.” But the meaning is the same. Question 1. What is it that everyone wants out of life? Answer: Happiness Lest we think that answer light or flippant, here is the second question and answer: Q. 2. Where is this happiness to be found? A. In God only. Here is a basic conundrum of life. We all by nature seek happiness. Some people think they find it in the things of this world. Late last night I was flipping through the TV channels when I happened upon a broadcast of Billy Graham preaching in some great crusade a half-century ago. As the camera panned the crowd, you could hear Dr. Graham say, “You will never find peace, you will never find joy, you will never happiness apart from Jesus Christ.” What a claim we make! I heard just that little snippet, but it stuck in my mind. What a claim we Christians make! We not only say that happiness comes through Jesus. We say that the only lasting happiness comes through him. We flatly declare that there is no ultimate peace or joy or fulfillment in sex or money or power or fame or degrees or buildings or gold medals or big estates or anything else that money can buy. Wealth can do many things, but it cannot buy peace of mind. Fame can do many things, but it cannot give us lasting joy. Power can do many things, but it cannot free us from......

...Name: Instructor: Course: Date: Salvation Salvation has been the most common term used in our churches today. But, what is salvation? Since I was a child, my parents always taught me that without salvation I was going to hell. Being so young and innocent, I would look at my parents and ask them, what I need to do to be saved. Their answer was simple. Fear God and stay away from sin; I guess that was my parent’s definition of salvation. Just like my parents, everyone has their own definition of salvation, depending on the religion you were brought up with and your faith. As I grew older, I came to realize that salvation not only involved fearing the maker but also salvation refers to being granted eternal life when the Day of Judgment comes. We all know temptation is real and the devil is not sleeping. I came to understand that salvation was everything to do with being spared from eternal penalty of sin. But that begs a different question; do all human beings deserve being spared the eternal fire? From the teachings of Jesus in the New Testament, we learn that only the righteous shall be saved and inherit the kingdom of God. During judgment day, while others will be rejoicing together with Christ in paradise others will be burning in eternal fire. Even the Bible states that salvation is only for those who will repent and turn to God. The prophet Ezekiel said “the soul who sins shall dies” (Ezekiel 18.4 NKJ). We can also see the same in the writing of the apostle Paul......

Does the Bible Say That Some Will Never Be Saved

...Does the Bible Say That Some Will Never Be Saved? Gale: Ok, Cathy, before I ask the question for paragraph 17, can you read the scripture at Ps 37:10,11? I know the scripture is partially quoted, but you can go ahead and read it. Cathy: Alright, Ps 37:10,11 says: [READS] You know, Gale, I forgot to mention before we started the study that when I was preparing for my study and I read this scripture, I couldn’t help but wonder: Is it true that some people will never be saved? Gale: That’s an interesting question you ask, Cathy. But let me first ask you this question: If you could live forever, would you rather in a world filled with sickness, crime, and greed? Or in a world filled with love, happiness, and endless enjoyment? Cathy: Of course I would rather live in a world with love, happiness, and enjoyment! Gale: Exactly. So with that in mind, let’s turn to in the Bible to Rev 21:8. You can read that as well. Cathy: [READS] Gale: So who does the Bible describes as not being saved, or receiving the second death? Cathy: It says those without faith, murderers, liars, the sexually immoral… Gale: And the list goes on. Therefore, anyone having received the accurate knowledge of truth and deliberately continue to practice sin afterwards is not forgiven. And that is why Jehovah says that not all will be saved. He is our loving Father and right now he hates the condition we are living in. Do you think he will allow us to live forever in a world with......

...paints a picture of himself as a little boy whose decisions at a church revival directly reflect mans own instinctive behavioral tendencies for obedience. A young Langston whose congregation wants him to go up and get saved, gives into obedience and ventures to the altar as if he has seen the light of the Holy Spirit. Hughes goes on to say: " So I decided that maybe to save further trouble, I'd rather lie, too, and say that Jesus had come ,and get up and be saved ." In saying this, Langston has obviously overlooked his personal belief to meet the level of obedience laid out by the congregation. It leads us to fact that people may believe strongly in an idea or thought but will overlook that belief to be obedient. One can make a justified assumption that everyone in society has at one time or another overlooked his or her personal feelings to conform this occurrence whether it is instinctive or judgmental is one that each individual deals with a personal level. He was a young boy who wanted to see Jesus, who wanted to earn salvation, but when he couldn't see Jesus, when everyone else saw,he found himself in the terrible position of disappointing not only himself but everyone in his community.He finally "saved" himself by pretending to see Jesus . He was saved not by love of Jesus as a congregation or preacher intended but by pretending to be other that who he was. One wanders what would have happened if he didn't stepped forward? Would they have seen a frightened boy? It......

Essentials of Christianity

...jailer, he asks Paul and Silas, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" (ESV). This is a common question asked by so many today when God is working in their lives. Many have a desperate desire to know how they can be saved from God's wrath but it seems so unclear in today's culture. However, although it can be complicated, it is also very simple what God requires for salvation. Ultimately, the way to God is a personal relationship with him. However, in order to have this relationship, there are three certain beliefs and truths that Christians put faith in, although many believe that one must do more to be in Christ. The three essentials to the Christian faith are: God's word is authoritative, Jesus is the perfect son of God who came as a Man to die on the cross and rose again to save Man from their sin, and it is by faith and repentance in Christ that man is able to have a relationship with Him. Although the belief is not supported by the Bible, many people say that it is essential to salvation to be baptized, thus turning Christianity into a works based religion. Church of Christ believes that it is necessary to be baptized to be saved, using Mark 16:16 as evidence (Wright). Mark 16:16 says, "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned" (ESV). However, Houdmann states that one must notice "While this verse tells us something about believers who have been baptized (they are saved), it does not say anything about believers who......

Assurance of Salvation

...mis-representation of the Word of God. Most of the times when we here someone say they want to be sure they are saved it is after they have decided to have a relationship with the Lord but state they don’t “feel anything” or those who may have experienced a tragic life change or may be sick unto death. Either way a good time to have an assurance of one’s faith is when and while there is still breath in the body. Some of the major questions are “Am I really a child of God? How do I know my sins are truly forgiven? When I die, am I going to heaven?” While working at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association many calls would come in from those who had just been diagnosed with life threating diseases, those who converted from Catholism and from widows who knew their spouses were saved and have gone on to be with the Lord, but wanted to be sure that they too would make it to heaven and not only see Jesus but see their loved one again. Some had no idea where they stood with God. We would gently ask the callers if they would like to know how they could be absolutely certain that they were indeed going to heaven. We would explain that Jesus Christ had died for their sins and paid all of our debt and the Word of God promises us if we would believe by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as our personal Savior; we then and that very moment could be and would be forgiven, saved, and have eternal life and could stand on this promise of God with certainty. Most of the time the caller......

English Critical Essay

...In other words they both did something they are not proud of in order to please the majority. In “Shooting an Elephant” Orwell shows the consequences of not being accepted and pressures of being accepted. “All I knew was that I was stuck between my hatred of the empire I served and my rage against the evil-spirited little beast who tried to make my job impossible”. (Orwell pg. 296) Not only does this quote show the unacceptance Orwell received but also that he was indecisive of whose side he was on, whether it was the empire or the town people. The natives hated him because of his position, but he hated his position, too, which shows they had some kind of common ground. Then there came a time when the town people were in need of him: a “sub-inspector at a police station the other end of the town rang me up on the phone and said that an elephant was ravaging the bazaar. Would I please come and do something about it? ” (297) this was an opportunity that only comes once in a life time: a chance to be hero and be accepted by the people. As Orwell went to the area the body of a dead man was discovered and he had made the decision to at least to check out the elephant. This is when he got his first little taste of acceptance. “I had no intention of shooting the elephant – I had merely sent for the rifle to defend myself if necessary.”(298) they were giving him praise because they thought he was doing what they wanted him to do; but his real intentions for borrowing the rifle was......

Short Story Reactions Lit/125

...“Salvation” This short story by Langston Hughes left me confused. I still wonder if he was saved or not; whether “salvation” should be the title of the story or not. “I was saved from sin when I was going on thirteen. But not really saved.” (Salvation, 351). This is how the story begins, with a contradiction. I suppose this some what grabbed me in interest for a while, but I do have to admit that I never truly understood if Hughes was “saved” or not. It almost seemed to me that there were missing components, that this short story was maybe an excerpt from a larger story. I did not take the time to confirm this or not because I think if I knew for sure, it may take away from my true interpretation of this piece. I found this short story interesting. However, it was very difficult for me to connect with the author. The story was obviously written as recollection of a significant event in Hughes life when he was younger, perhaps because this particular event has affected him throughout his entire life. It is difficult for me to say for sure mostly because I have very little knowledge and understanding of church, religion, or being “saved” even means. So going off of my reaction purely from the way Hughes wrote it, I would have to say that I think he might have spent a long part of his life confused about what happened that day in the church. Hughes was very young this day where he was supposed to “see” Jesus. Being so young I figure he would have taken things he had......

... Optimizing images for web I noticed how many people don't optimize their images properly, which results in extremely slow loading time. When you intend to publish your images online, you have to comprimise the quality — just face the fact you cannot use a 100KB image on a website layout. It's not fair to your visitors. This tutorial will explain in detail how to use Photoshop's Save for web... option. Facts about image formats There are many image formats available, but only a few work on web. They differ in some important properties, and you should learn how to use them best. There are two kinds of image compression, lossy and lossless. Lossy compression means once you decompress the compressed data, you will not get the exact same image as the original. However, this will only be visible at a closer look. Lossy compression is good for web, because images use small amount of memory, but can be sufficiently like the original image. When you decompress a lossless image, you will get exactly the same image as the original. This compression uses greater amount of memory, so at times it may not be good for web. JPEG JPEG is a format name, .jpg is the extension for it. This image type is lossy, and you can control the compression level in image editors. It is good for saving images with millions of colors, like photographs, drawings with many shades, images containing gradients etc. GIF This format is a......

A Look Back at "Salvation" by Langston Hughes

...that when you were saved you saw a light, and something happened to you inside! And Jesus came into your life! And God was with you from then on! She said you could see and hear and feel Jesus in your soul” (1). The last passage really tells the reader what the ritual entails, or what young Langston and his peers should and will be experiencing during this process to “salvation.” The piece as a whole is very descriptive from the way Hughes talks about “wonderful rhythmical sermon” (Hughes 1), to the way he illustrates the people around then, their actions, and the detailed narration of events. He even goes into detail about his friend Westley who he feels did not find salvation in God, but was so tired of sitting there waiting for something to happen, that he pretends to be saved and that he has seen the light. In reality Westley has, what Langston feels, sinned. Langston continued to sit there waiting to be saved, and after a while he realizes that maybe he could be like Westley and give up, because there were no consequences by Westley giving up. After Westley had “given up,” Langston continues to sit there, the only one left while the other mourners continue to ask him to come to the light. Even his aunt starts to cry and pray that he may find Jesus. Even the minister of the Parish chimed in with the others praying for Langston and this is evident when the author writes, “I heard the songs and the minister saying: “Why don’t you come? My dear child, why don’t you come......

Nonfiction Reaction Paper

...Nonfiction Reaction Paper ENG/125 Nonfiction Reaction Paper The nonfiction stories I have decided to write about are; “Who Will Light the Incense When Mother’s Gone?” by Andrew Lam and “Salvation” by Langston Hughes. Both of these stories are about a significant event in the authors lives in which they choose to write about. “Salvation” is a story about the author trying to find his way into the church and finally see the light or Jesus so his soul will be saved and his sins forgiven. ; “Who Will Light the Incense When Mother’s Gone?” was a writing about his mother having a hard time with the American culture and how her son, the author Andrew Lam, will be when he leaves home and how the traditions she raised him on slowly will disappear along with her when she passes along. Both stories seem to send a message of events in the author’s lives where they wrote about them because of certain memories in their lives, and I will briefly go through each story in different ways. Summary of Strategies by the Authors I think Langston Hughes in “Salvation” tries to get the reader to imagine a hot sweltering church on a balmy Sunday morning. This would be the setting for the young boy at 12 years of age trying to see Jesus in another aspect because he is becoming of age for the church. The authors strategy is not to confuse the reader but to make the reader understand that Langston was not lying about seeing Jesus but in fact did not believe in Jesus because he left the......

Langston Hughes’ “Salvation.”

...revival that she was attending. This special meeting was designed to influence and convince the children to be “saved.” Langston’s aunt clearly explained to him that five things happened “when you were saved”: 1) that “you saw a light”; 2) that “something happened to you inside; 3) that “Jesus came into your life”; 4) that “God was with you from then on”; and 5) that “you could see and hear and feel Jesus in your soul” (Hughes 203). Langston “believed” his aunt about these five ideas about being saved; furthermore, he believed that these ideas were true since he “had heard a great many old people say the same thing, and it seemed to me they ought to know.” Hughes then uses the word “So” as a conjunction specifying a meaning similar to “therefore,” which shows the effect of the cause: “So I sat there calmly in the hot, crowded church, waiting for Jesus to come to me”; that is, therefore, he sat there waiting for Jesus, which was an effect of his hearing these ideas from his aunt and elderly members of the community (Hughes 203). This is the first circumstance that Hughes shows his beliefs to be influenced by the circumstances of his aunt and the elders in his community. The second set of circumstance that influenced Hughes’ behavior begins as a continuation of the first. Because he believed his family and community members regarding the five ideas about being saved, he was “waiting for Jesus to come,” “waiting to see Jesus,” and “waiting serenely for Jesus, waiting, waiting......

Time Value of Money: worth much more than the equal amount would in future (Crosson, 2008). If you lend your friend money today, most likely he will refund the same amount you lend him in future. That money will have added no value to itself. Lending it to your friend is not an investment. The sooner you get the money back, the better because you can invest it elsewhere. Therefore, if one was not to use a given amount of money today, with intentions of using it in the future, he should put that money in a saving account. That way, the money will accrue interest and it will not be of the same amount as initially saved. The amount of interest accrued on saved money depends on three things: the initial amount saved, the bank interest rate and the span of time the money will be saved. Inflation is another factor to be considered when calculating the interest to be accrued. If the inflation is high, the interest reduces since the ‘value’ of money reduces (Carr, 2006). This paper will discuss this concept of time value of money with the help of a question problem. Assuming I am 30 years old plans and I plan to accumulate $1 million by my retirement date, which is 30 years from now. I plan to live up to 85 years of age, which is 25 years after my retirement. I am to make 30 equal annual deposits in my bank to save for my retirement. With the bank offering 10% interest annually, I am supposed to calculate how much I should deposit annually and how much will be my retirement......

...through him all might be saved” (D&C 76:41–42).  He made the greatest sacrifice of all, paid for our sins and helped us to overcome death.  This is called The Atonement and it is the most important principle of the gospel.   “For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; for according to the great plan of the Eternal God there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish; … yea, all are fallen and are lost, and must perish except it be through the atonement” (Alma 34:9).  If it weren’t for The Atonement, we wouldn’t be saved and would be unable to return to the presence of our Heavenly Father.  We all sin, nobody is perfect.  Only through the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we can repent and be forgiven of our sins.   In the April 2011 General Conference, C. Scott Grow said "The atoning sacrifice had to be carried out by the sinless Son of God, for fallen man could not atone for his own sins. The Atonement had to be infinite and eternal―to cover all men throughout all eternity.”  It is available for everyone.  This is such a great blessing that we can share with those of not our faith, as well as remind our friends and family in the church.  Many people don’t know about the Atonement and the peace and joy it can bring to their lives.  There have been many times I have had to apply the Atonement in my own life.  I have struggled with certain things and it wasn’t until I truly sought The Lord and applied the Atonement that I felt the......
