Wednesday, February 23, 2005's more of my random thoughts know how the majority, if not all, of the Christian Religions teaches that Jesus was perfect? The WWJD messages and the strife to be Christ like in all aspects of our lives....well, I've had sort of conflicting beliefs on these things. While I believe yes we should be the very best people we can be and not take the gift of redemption and repentence for granted, which Jesus amptly demonstrated through his time on earth... how can you strife to be like something that you know is unattainable...why reach for the unreachable? With that said...Is it so hard to believe that Jesus Christ was a man... and had the same temptations that we go through everyday of our lives? I feel that Jesus's main purpose on earth was to be a testimony to the power that God has over life and death in this world, as well as demonstrate that no matter what trials we suffer here on earth we have the ability in ourselves to overcome those obstacles. The belief that Jesus was a man for me makes things in my life so much easier to deal with..........aaaannnd I'm spent.

science vs. religion

Everything goes back to God no matter what. Even if a miracle can be scientifically analyzed and broken down doesn't make it less of a miracle does it? In a way scince helps you understand miracles...think about it, just because we now EXACTLY how a child is born doesn't take away the fact that child birth is a miraculous thing. Religion and science are two different paths to the same goal....that is trying to understand the universe and understand how and why we are here.

I realised something today...

I finally figured out the reason why I don't like make-up...I feel like it's a lie.
To change the natural pigmentation of your face to fit the predetermined, social definition of what is feminine's appalling. I mean..okay don't get me wrong, for some women it helps to boost their self confidence, but sometimes it's just taken too far. Today for instance my mother gave me a make over (it was in the middle of it that I had my revelation) and she got out this concealer to try and hide the bags underneath my eyes, which I was totally fine with....but then she went and said, "okay....what else do we have to hide..." then went to town on my face! going, "blemish...blemish...blemish..." What else do we have to hide??...excuse me!
Another thing about it is....I think it would be kind of a shock for like the guy you date or when you get married...think about it. It's like this. They are used to seeing you during the day when you have your make up on (I doubt they come to your house and watch you remove it) so they really don't know what you look like until you're married to the poor bloke...frankly, it's a dirty trick.
