"I have said things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
I'm all about that truth. It really will get better. All things will be restored. The pain will end. It really will.
Gryffindor : Mate, I would die for you
Slytherin : I will kill for you, bro. Just give me the word, the bitch is dead
Ravenclaw: I’ll find a way we both can survive
Hufflepuff: I’ll die with you
And this is why I’m actually becoming okay with the fact that I’m apparently a Hufflepuff. Sacrifice is powerful. But sharing in one’s suffering - so much more powerful.
Yeah, yeah, don’t burst my bubble about how this implies the helplessness of Hufflepuffs.
But, like to get a little theological here.
People always focus on “Jesus dying for our sins”, essentially - Jesus died for us.
But what it really is more so is that Jesus joined in on suffering. He came down to our level, partnered with us in it, and in a sense, suffered along with us. We were wasting away in this hell on earth. He denied his deity to come on down and be apart of that with us. His death on the cross is more than some sort of “penal substitution” - Christ taking our place, but rather, Christ on the cross symbolizes the suffering at the hands of our sins that humanity has continually gone through, and though God, He still was right there with us.
Then defeated us. That’s why there is such a Biblical emphasis on “bearing one another’s burdens”, in emulation of Christ. Another’s problems is our problem - we come together with them, share in that suffering, become one through it. And that’s the unity and harmony that the cross symbolizes and accomplishes, and what God intended for the world from the very get-go.
Just my opinion. Only I would turn a mild Harry Potter text post into full blown Christian theology without even originally planning to.
girls think having a period sucks but try having to fix your penis discreetly through your pocket
having the insides of your organs shed and come out through your genitals does not compare to having displaced balls sorry
none of you can do it discreetly anyways
Really? OP gots to be kidding! I very honestly would rather get boners than get my period.
