Journal Entry: Thu Apr 22, 2010, 12:00 AM

I have to say if you are looking for the best ShikaXTema fan comics on DA you must check out :iconh-ozuno: & :iconbotanofspiritworld: They both have some awesome comics in their galleries so check them out.

For an absolutely awesome Naruto fan comic check out :iconmattwilson83: whose comic is already over 1110+ pages and still going strong. Trust me when I say it is worth the read.

For breath taking ShikaTema fan art check out :iconramachan:

If you want to read a highly detailed, indepth, well thought out and emotionally powerful NARUHINA fan fic then you must read Soul Fire by :iconfifteenthapostle: It is currently nearing 40 chapters and it is still on going...and worth every moment.

For an overall just cool Naruto fan fic check out :iconspudrow2005: but start with the Red Fields its a prequel to his actual fic.

Question: "What does the Bible say about loneliness?"

Answer: Being alone and being lonely are two different things. One can be alone without being lonely, and one can be lonely in a crowded room. Loneliness is, therefore, a state of mind, an emotion brought on by feelings of separation from other human beings. The sense of isolation is very deeply felt by those who are lonely. The Hebrew word translated "desolate" or "lonely" in the Old Testament means "one alone, only; one who is solitary, forsaken, wretched." There is no deeper sadness that ever comes over the mind than the idea that we are alone in the world, that we do not have a friend, that no one cares for us, that no one is concerned about anything that might happen to us, that no one would care if we were to die or shed a tear over our grave.

No one felt loneliness more keenly than David. In a series of earnest, heart-felt appeals to God, David cried out in his loneliness and despair. His own son was risen up against him, the men of Israel went after him, and he was forced to flee from the city, and leave his house and family. Lonely and afflicted (Psalm 25:16), his only recourse was to turn to God and plead for mercy and God's intervention (Psalm 25:21) because his only hope was in God. It is interesting to note that the word "lonely" is never used in the New Testament to describe people. In the New Testament, the word "lonely" only occurs twice and both times refers to desolate places (Mark 1:45; Luke 5:16), where Jesus moved off into the wilderness to be alone.

Whatever the cause of loneliness, for the Christian the cure is always the same—the comforting fellowship of Christ. That loving relationship with our Master has reassured and encouraged countless thousands who languished in prisons and even went to their deaths for His sake. He is the friend who "sticks closer than a brother" (Proverbs 18:24), who lays down His life for His friends (John 15:13-15), and who has promised never to leave us or forsake us but to be with us until the end of the age (Matthew 28:20). We can take comfort in the words of the old hymn that says it best: "Friends may fail me, foes assail me, He is with me to the end. Hallelujah, what a Savior!"


If you would like to know how to share your faith in 30 seconds here's how: Just copy and paste the following and share it with your friends either in a note or a journal of your own.

God makes it clear that 'All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God' (Romans 3:23), and 'there is none that doeth good, no, not one.' (Psalm 14:3) and 'but we are all as an unclean thing, and all our good works are as filthy rags'. (Isaiah 64:6)

Tell me, do you think you are a good person?

Let me ask you, how many murders do I need to commit to be called a murderer? Just one.

Have you ever told a lie? That makes you a liar.
Have you ever stolen anything? That makes you a thief.
Have you ever used God's name as a curse word? That makes you a blasphemer against the God that gave you life.
Have you ever looked at a woman with lust? Jesus said if you look at someone to lust after them, you have commit adultery in your heart.
Have you ever murdered anyone? Jesus said if you are angry with someone, you are guilty of murder in your heart.

So, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterous murderer at heart. Now, if God is just and good and perfectly Holy, having never committed any sins, and you stand before Him as a vile and wicked sinner, what should He do with you? If He lets you go, that would make God evil, so would any judge who lets an evil man walk away without justice being served. God must punish all that is evil in order for God to remain good.

So, should God punish or reward you for breaking His laws? Obviously, God should ensure justice is served, and should punish all who have broken His laws. However, God wants to save you from His wrath, because God is also merciful and kind. God became a man, Jesus Christ, and died on a cross in your place, taking the punishment you deserved upon Himself.

The life of Christ was as important as His death. God created mankind to be His image in the physical world, and we failed by sinning. So, God became a man, who we call Jesus, so that mankind could fulfill their purpose of being the physical representation of God. However, for those who have sinned, they have earned the wage of sin (a wage is something you earn), and that is death. So, mankind deserves to die. However, Jesus Christ, the true representation of God and man, being fully God, and fully man, lived perfectly so mankind could be deemed righteous, and died to take the punishment that mankind deserved. So, mankind as a whole can now be justified before God having fulfilled their purpose as the image of God in the physical world, and also allow God's justice and wrath to be satisfied by having mankind die in Jesus Christ. 0 x any number = 0. Jesus had 0 sins, and died for the sins of the world.

If you repent (apologize and forsake your sins), and put your faith in Jesus Christ, your God and Savior, you will be saved. If not, you will face the wrath of God upon your sins. Jesus said

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for Gods wrath remains on him. (John 3:36)

Confess to God you are a sinner who deserves to justly be sent to Hell, but you believe Jesus died on a cross in your place, taking the punishment you deserved. Then, He was resurrected from the dead to conquer death, and hears your prayers and is able to forgive and save you.

Repent from sin, and put your faith in the Saviour today.
