there was this one time when i was a kid (like 15 i think) and i had just earned $200 from working all week during the summer helping my dad paint houses. then one day i was walking towards a game store to buy some vidya. and i saw this homeless person. i just saw him sitting there with his dog and bags and a sign that said "I wishi i could convince you i didn't choose this for me but i can't. i need money to begin anew"   
   
which was weird because i had never seen a sign like that before. i mean usually it's "need money for family. anything helps. god bless!" or some variation of that but this guy's was different, at least to me. and i've seen him around before, trying odd jobs and not just sitting around. but he never seemed to have enough. so i walked up to him and put the money in the hat he had and said "time to restart". and i just walked away.   
   
he must have not realized the amount but man... man when i was walking away i heard this moan. this moan like you had never heard before. like a man whose kids were just brought back from the brink of death. the sound that man made i'm gonna remember it forever. i never got my vidya but i like to think what i gave was more valuable than $200 worth of vidya. and what made it all better was a month or 2 later i saw him again working at a convenience store. he looked happy. and that made it worth it   
   
 i didn't go in, i've never liked being recognized for good deeds or anything charitable or complimentary even. i don't do good things for recognition. the reward i get is the smile on people's faces. which hey maybe you won't believe me and you'll think i'm selfish. but to me it's not that. it's that we can all be happy together which is better than being happy alone

I don't care much wether this is true or if it is you'res, but damn... That's by far the most heartwarming story about meeting a homeless I've ever read here.

I do believe that you should meet up with the guy though. Not for personal gain, boasting or gloating, but because he probably wants to see you again and thank you. People don't just smile and nod to people that gave them a chance to set their ******* lives straight.

Assuming that this story is you'res, though.

the reason that we think everything is horrible, is because bad things is what gets our attention, we dont pay attention to all the common but good things out there.

my old high school teacher used to bring us bottles of water. we would give him a dollar and we get water. sometimes if we were desperate he would give it for free. one time he didnt have the water and sat us all down at lunch. this was drama class so we all hung out when we could. he got on stage and told us what happend.
he was walking through the parking lot and a man grabbed the case of water and ran. at first he was pissed. but he put his stuff in his car and drove home thinking. "if a man is willing to go through such desperate matters to live then he needs it more than we do" the reality hit me like a brick. i lived surrounded by these things but it never really clicked. i never forgot that and i never will

Is it just me or do a lot of gay people place themselves on a moral pedestal just because they like people of the same sex?
#50 to #21 - anon (07/12/2014) [-]
I'm gay and I don't. I'm sorry if you come across those type of gay people in your life, but just remember a lot of us don't like or want to be put on a "moral pedestal". We want everyone (not just ourselves) to be equal.
User avatar #53 to #21 - zeroqp (07/12/2014) [-]
I think that impression is created because so many people are harshly against being gay, as well as giving gay people basic human rights. Rights that they have and that they take for granted, like marrying the person you love. Because of the strong hate gay people get, they can either retort by being hateful back, by ignoring it completely (which won't solve the problem), or by "killing them with love".

Gay people have no reason to think they're better than other people. I think rather it's beacuse a lot of them go through stages in life, like being bullied in school and/or at home, that teaches them how important compassion really is. And that's what they're trying to get from other people. Not to be put on a pedestal, but just to raise themselves, in the eyes of the haters, to the same level they would see anyone else.

Two things to the pastor one:   
1) He's a bit off, and he's referencing the bible so I can reference it to negate his claims. Yes, homosexuality is a sin as is divorce. The consequences under the Law of Moses were, yeah, death. We didn't abandon that because we thought it inhumane. We did it because we're no longer under that law after Jesus' sacrifice. Another thing, the bible does talk of the consequences of sin, and he just got done saying homosexuality is a sin so, derped there. "Where does it say homosexuality is a sin?" Paraphrasing Jesus' beatitudes sermon, ALL lust is a sin. So when I see a hot chick and want to do it, guess what!! I'm in the same boat as all the gays! Luckily Jesus loves you so you can repent and try not do it again. We're all pieces of crap, which may have been his point with the equality line, not exactly a marriage equality point, but whatever. What made me giggle though was after they say there are no other restrictions on the, "Love thy neighbor," line he says there are no other restrictions or rules but there is, literally right after that is the line, "As yourself." Anyways, I'm not gonna smile and support homosexuality, nor divorce, nor even alcoholism, or any other sin due to the fact that it's a sin. So sorry, I will love and support the person but not the sin, I'm just here to say I believe in a God that has the capacity to love us all despite every single piece of crap we do against him. I'm a terrible human the same as you all. That is the true Christian way.    
   
2) "This pastor said something all Christians should hear." Now, some people get really upset that they're getting religion shoved down their throat. Yet, you do it in return. I didn't mind the story being shared, I thought it was cute, but this is just a hint saying you all do it too. We're all faggots here!    
   
TL;DR:    
1) To the pastor: ButThatsWrong.stonetablet   
2) You're shoving your own beliefs about our beliefs down our throats. Don't dish it if you can't take it.

Eternal torture and damnation await anyone who questions God's infinite love

why do people get behind that?
#43 to #42 - ighostinthefogi (07/12/2014) [-]
It's about the wording. It's not that they question it, its that they don't accept it. The eternal damnation stuff was never meant for humans, but we chose it thanks to free will. He'll let us deal with our choice despite how much it pains Him.

How I like to think of it is, you really really like a girl but she never accepts any advance you make. There's really no choice in the matter, as you just have to let her go.

The problem is you can't accept something without evidence. A more logical analogy is when someone says his friend really likes you and you should date her but she never reveals this friend nor is there any reason to believe the friend is real.

If god truly wanted us to decide then he'd be reasonable about it and show that he exists, any god that puts people into eternal damnation for merely not believing in him is not a god worthy of worship.
#80 to #67 - ighostinthefogi (07/12/2014) [-]
"The problem is you can't accept something without evidence." We can and have. Consider some people's favorite subject, The Big Bang Theory. You've never seen this evidence you'reself that it happened, you just have someone on the internet/tv, you apparently trust, saying it happened because they've seen the evidence. I took the same step with God, both are a leap of faith. Now in no way am I saying that the theory is wrong, it's very possible God created the universe in that way. I'm just using it as analogy that we each have faith in something, you in science and me in God. This is a extremely thin reasoning in my part, this isn't the greatest medium to go in depth about it so I apologize if it seems completely out there. I'm not exactly sure how to explain my logic in a way you can understand and relate simply because I have no idea who you are or how you learn. So again, I apologize if that made no sense, I beg you to inquire further if it didn't.   
   
"If God truly wanted us to decide then he'd be reasonable about it and show that he exists." It's really a matter of perspective. If God did miracles today Christians would sit in awe of God's actions while others would find the scientific explanation or wait for it if it wasn't there. If you want an interesting read for you would be Exodus 7, Google it if you'd like, it may raise more questions than answers but it relates. God performs miracles and the magicians redo them. It's sorta like the scientists of today.  Science would find a way to explain God's miracles or again, people would wait for one. The unfortunate reality of what people have chosen to put their faith in.

Uhm no, we don't just take it from granted from someone else, they can literally show and demonstrate you the evidence. They can give you the background radation evidence, they can demonstrate the expansion of space, they can show you the primordial gas clouds.

That's the great thing about science, it's demonstrable, anyone can see the evidence for themself, it has absolutely nothing to do with what someone else says and it's certainly not a leap of faith. It's backed up with emperical, demonstrable evidence.

Indeed you made absolutely no sense because what your talking about regarding science is not only wrong but has nothing to do with faith. Faith is about believe without evidence, god has no evidence, it's not demonstrable, it's not testable, there is no peer-reviewed article that has demonstrated evidence for his existence.

God is omniscient, he could literally make a miracle so convincing that it proves that he exist, or hell he can just show himself in front of everyone, that's as demonstrable and evidential as it gets. If god's miracles are nothing more then magic tricks then obviously scientists are going to doubt it, but when there is a literal omniscient being talking to everyone from above then no it's not something that people will try to find a scientific explanation for.
#70 to #38 - douthit (07/12/2014) [-]
Yep.

Jesus said to love god with all you'reself, and to love others as you'reself. He also said to repent from sins. Often when he healed people of afflictions, he said to go and sin no more. People don't like to talk about that part. Being fabulous and sparkly won't separate you from God anymore than any other sin, but liars, thieves, drunks, and adulterers often try to stop what they're doing, while fabulous and sparkly people don't. Nobody's self or property should be violated because of anything peaceful, but that's different from saying that God is pleased with what your doing. Here come the reds...

I never got this faith in humanity thing. Some people are "good", some are "evil", most are simply self interested to a whatever degree. good and evil are already pretty subjective

This is how has always been and almost certainly will continue to be. A few peoples actions should not change your opinion about people as a whole.
User avatar #26 to #24 - TheHutchie (07/12/2014) [-]
Faith in humanity is about more than good and evil.

Humanity, generally speaking, is dominated by greed and ignorance. It's more common to mistrust strangers by default than the opposite, which is realistic, but not ideal.

"Faith in humanity restored" might not be the ideal phrase, but we should probably take whatever we can get if it reminds us that there are good people out there.
