Does life imitate art? in General

That quote may be true in some aspects, but not all. It really depends on the form of art. Picasso was an abstract painter. His art was a truth interpreting lie. On the other hand take Monet. He was an impressionist. His paintings were to get people to look at life in a different way. Picasso's paintings did the same thing only on a much more massive degree. Some of his paintings were quite horrific but they were just a point of view. Music is also and art form. As is dancing and sculpting and writing. It really depends on your form of art.

Psa 14:1
The FOOL has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.

James 4:8
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Job 33:14-30

14 For God does speak—now one way, now another—
though man may not perceive it.

15 In a dream, in a vision of the night,
when deep sleep falls on men
as they slumber in their beds,

16 he may speak in their ears
and terrify them with warnings,

17 to turn man from wrongdoing
and keep him from pride,

18 to preserve his soul from the pit, [a]
his life from perishing by the sword. [b]

19 Or a man may be chastened on a bed of pain
with constant distress in his bones,

20 so that his very being finds food repulsive
and his soul loathes the choicest meal.

21 His flesh wastes away to nothing,
and his bones, once hidden, now stick out.

22 His soul draws near to the pit, [c]
and his life to the messengers of death. [d]

23 "Yet if there is an angel on his side
as a mediator, one out of a thousand,
to tell a man what is right for him,

24 to be gracious to him and say,
'Spare him from going down to the pit [e] ;
I have found a ransom for him'-

25 then his flesh is renewed like a child's;
it is restored as in the days of his youth.

26 He prays to God and finds favor with him,
he sees God's face and shouts for joy;
he is restored by God to his righteous state.

27 Then he comes to men and says,
'I sinned, and perverted what was right,
but I did not get what I deserved.

28 He redeemed my soul from going down to the pit, [f]
and I will live to enjoy the light.'

29 "God does all these things to a man—
twice, even three times-

30 to turn back his soul from the pit, [g]
that the light of life may shine on him.

See God wants us to be with him in eternity. Accept him as your savior and he will always be there fo you. When one person gets saved all of heaven rejoices. The angels sing and play their music and just praise the lord that another has accepted him as their savior. You only have to say the prayer once in your whole life and you're saved. If you want to hear the word from the mouth of a great man of God go to www.ggwo.org
Or come to the services of GGWO. You can find all the information you need at ggwo.org
God Bless!

God has hardly shirked responsibility. He has given all man a free will to choose him. He doesn't want mindless puppets. God wants people to choose him because they want to draw close to him, not because they are programmed to. The things that happen that we would classify as bad all happen because God has allowed them to. All things fit into his great plan. People aren't broken like a cheap toy. We all have choices which we make. Our choices are what break us. And with that being said the only breaking that is being done is in our soul. We listen to the voice of the deceiver, the serpent, the prince of all that is evil. He tells us that God has abbondened us. Satan also tells us that he can give us anything we wnat, all we have to do is keep God out of our lives. We live in a day and age where religion is just a small piece of culture. Nothing more than a small stroy that someone threw into a mass of old traditions. Those who do not understand the word are lost and are dambed to hell because they will not receive Christ as their savior, the messiah, the son of man, the son of God, the most high, and the prince of peace. He died on the cross for our sins, OUR sins. He died for us because he loves us. When those who are saved go to heaven they will see the holes in his wrists and the wound in his side. We will see the pain he went through. His wounds are always fresh. He prays for us all the time. He just prays that we will come to see that he is our savior. He wants us to be with him in eternity but we have to choose him. He has given us a free will to choose. If we choose to reject him then we will spend eternity in the pit of fire, where all of our worst nightmares are on display for the pleasure of Satan and his minions. Hell is a place of endless torture where you will be dying of thirst and satan will be drinking a glass of water and you will be chaned to a wall unable to reach the glass right in front of you. Even though you are in the pits of hell God still loves you and he cries for you. He is going to destroy this earth in the end times and make it anew for all of those who are with him in eternity. All those who chose to reject him will burn in hell with the prince of darkness forever. We are the children of God. All he asks of us is htat we love him and follow him. As it says in John 3:19, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son so that whoever would believ in him would have eternal life. Accepting Christ is so easy. All you have to do is say, "Jesus, I believe that you died for me on the cross of calvary. I want to be with you in eternity where the streets are made of transparent gold and we can look down on the earth throught the sea of crystal. I want to get to know you throught the word of God, through your word. Please come and dwell in my heart and saveme from the ruler of the earth, the deceiver, the serpent. Come into my heart and save me. In your Holy anem Amen." If any one said that message me or tell your Pastor. Remember God is love. He will never leave you and nothing can pluck you from the hallow of his hand.

I agree. A little realism is alright. That kind of reality in a game is quite refreshing. It emitts this sense that the game is real. It's quite intriguing.

Maddness or Genius??? in General

That is an excellent point. I wasn't saying that insanity comes with genius. What i was saying is that whenever you have a brilliant person it always seems that they do something that warrants someone labeling them as mad. The real question is If enough people decide that someting is maddness does that make it so? I mean if someone slits their wrists in a suicide attempt virtually everyone would say that it was a crazy thing to do. But you do have a very valid point.

Have you ever thought about the close relationship insanity and brilliance? I mean so many people which have been called mad were pure geniuses. Take Beethoven for example. The way he had to write his music and the way he lived was completely and totally barbaric for most people of his time period; but who would have thought of breaking the legs off of a piano to hear the vibrations? And his so called mad methods enabled him to write some of the most famous classical pieces of all time. And Van Gough. He cut off his ear as a declaration of love. Even I think that was a little weird but he painted amazing works of art. Is it just me or do maddness and genius seem to often coexist within certain single individuals? What is your take on this?

I'm all up for saying that aspertame is bad for your health ,but then think about how much you'd have to ingest in order to get cancer from it. It's like what they say about the beta radiation emitted from cell phones causing cancer. Most people live their whole life and be on their cell phones all the time and not die from cancer. (note: most of the people who talk on their cell phones all the time never get a chance to get cancer because they die in a car accident due to their talking on a cell phone). Besides the amount of aspertame in a diet soda is not that much. And it's every persons right (or god given right if you're religious) to ingest aspertame if they wish. And statiticly speaking 3 out of every 10 people have diabeties and most of them like soda so aspertame is in its own way an odd nesecity for some of them.

I think that using that picture for that phrase is a little out of perspective. I mean the way that I look at it is that 20% of the people in the world have problems with obesity rgardless of global position. Also most people in Japan are not sumo wrestlers. I think I took that post too seriuously *whispers* I think I took that too seriously.

I have been cut off from my ex-girlfriend as it were. It wasn't our choice to seperate but we had no choice. We both still want to be friends but I don't know if that is ever going to happen. What would you suggest doing? :(
