The Daily Share~ Is there such a "thing" as A #saviour ? Someone who can "save" another? I mean... really "SAVE" Them?..... Unless it's a matter of #lifeanddeath as in MAKING A QUICK #lifeaffirming Decision, NO ONE Can "save" another... WE are "saved" by recognizing that WE " #save " OurSELVES, WE Are Our Own #savior IF in fact, WE ever really "needed" #saving 😉 but that's some #tuesdaythoughts for another day.....We are ALL--» #spiritualbeings HAVING #thehumanexperience and part of this #humanexperience is to LEARN... To GROW from the Learning.... and to EXPAND Our Awareness, both Personal as well as Spiritual, through the GROWING from the LEARNING WE have been taking part in WHILE LIVING SAID, "HUMAN EXPERIENCES." If someone was to "save" US from something that IS Ours to EXPERIENCE, how exactly would WE "learn, grow, or expand" from that? #saviors are usually put upon a pedestal that implies *YOU* <Another than THE #saviouress > can't LIVE UP TO Because *YOU* are not on that same level/path of #spiritualawareness of SELF. But Truth IS, WE ALL ARE.🙏💞💕 WE weren't meant to BE Another's "Savior," or Another TO BE OURS...WE didn't Come Here to Be Saved..WE came HERE to put into BEING/Living Action WHO WE ARE === #loveinaction as A #spiritualbeinghavingahumanexperience 🙌 Any other kind of imbalanced kind of "relationship" with Another isn't "helping" *YOU* --> It's Giving Away Your #power & What kind of "savior" would WANT powerless #followers ?😘💕🙏 Blessed Be, ~kat~😸[associated with the Within The Healing Light GROUP on Facebook ~ It's About You Healing You] #dailyshare#dailyinspiration..... P.S. I saw this very #creative_portraits 😉 in a manner of speaking at the Pasadena Public Library last night, it's a bunch of #puzzlepieces of all kinds of story characters who could be considered a "savior" of sorts...LOL It felt like a perfect match-up even though when I took the picture I didn't yet have a use for IT, I just thought it was pretty Creative AND a lot BIGGER than shown here.😝
#Memeing Thru The 10 Commandments - #4 - “Rest,” you say? 🔊🎶 Tell us about your craziest Sunday morning everrr!
“God controls our lives, guides and blesses us, but gives us our agency. We may live our lives in accordance with His plan for us, or we may foolishly shorten or terminate them. I am positive in my mind that the Lord has planned our destiny. We can shorten our lives, but I think we cannot lengthen them very much. Sometime we’ll understand fully, and when we see from the vantage point of the future, we shall be satisfied with many of the happenings of this life which seem so difficult for us to comprehend. We knew before we were born that we were coming to the earth for bodies and experience, and that we would have joys and sorrows, pain and comforts, ease and hardships, health and sickness, successes and disappointments, and we knew also that we would die. We accepted all of these eventualities with a glad hard, eager to accept both the favorable and the unfavorable. We were undoubtedly willing to have a mortal body, even if it were a deformed one. We eagerly accepted the chance to come earthward, even though it might be for a day, a year, or a century. Perhaps we were not so much concerned whether we should die of disaster, of accident, or of simility. We were willing to come and take life as it came, and as we might organize and control it, and this without murmur, complaint, or unreasonable demands. We sometimes think we’d like to know what was ahead, but sober thought brings us back to accepting life a day at a time, and magnifying and glorifying that day.” - Spencer W. Kimball, #BYU devotional 1955
What is the Gospel?
The gospel is good news—the good news of what God has done in Jesus Christ.
The Bible depicts human beings, all human beings everywhere, as in revolt against God, and therefore under his judgment. But although God stands over against us in judgment because of our sin, quite amazingly he stands over against us in love, because he is that kind of God—and the gospel is the good news of what God, in love, has done in Jesus Christ, especially in Jesus’s cross and resurrection, to deal with our sin and to reconcile us to himself.
Christ bore our sin on the cross. He bore the penalty, turned aside God’s judgment, God’s wrath, from us, and cancelled sin. The brokenness of our lives he restores; the shattered relationships he rebuilds in the context of the church; the new life that we human beings find in Christ is granted out of the sheer grace of God. It is received by faith as we repent of our sins and turn to Jesus. We confess him as Lord, and bow to him joyfully.
The gospel is good news—the good news of what God has done in Jesus Christ.
One day he will make all things new. The good news culminates in a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness, where neither sin nor any of its effects can survive, and where we enjoy the presence of God forever in the context of resurrection existence.
And we announce this good news to people everywhere, entreating them with the words, “Be reconciled to God!” by repenting of sin, asking God for his mercy, and trusting Jesus Christ.
and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel." (Mark 1:15, ESV)
"Jesus replied to them, 'Truly, truly I say to you, that everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin."

What then shall we say? Shall we continue in sin so that grace may increase? Certainly not! How can we who died to sin live in it any longer? (Romans 6:1-2) :: Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation, but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. (Romans 8:12-14)
The Reappearance:The manifestation of the Ghadir 🔸️The post-Reappearance era is an infinite horizon that human beings are unable to imagine.It's the abundance of mercy in a way that no humankind has already experianced and it is the perfection of excellence and growth in a way that the wisdom of humanity hasn't been able to conceive it yet. 🔸️Therefore,whatever we say is a glimpse of an unseen paradise that we heard of and believed in and all the imagination we had in mind are the prosperous outlooks of the wishes whose pleasure can't be felt unless they become true. 🔸️Ghadir from the beginning of the creation to the Reappearance and up to the Judgment Day. 🔸️The universe has started and continued with Ghadir and ends with Ghadir,which is the love and Guardianship(wilayah)of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH)and his family.Accordingly,imparting the Ghadir's message has been the most important duty of Prophets. 🔸️Ghadir is the continution of the connection between God and humans and this link was greatly needed from the first day of the creation and lasts up to the Day of Judgment.Ghadir is the response to the savior-seeking nature of humankind and the response to the request of"Guid us to the Right Path"(1:6). 🔸️In fact,mankind is the follower of the perfection route using the Devine Plan,which got completed on the Ghadir's day by introducing its guiding leader.... #eid#eidalghadir#ghadirkhom#imam#imamat#guardianship#imamali#shia#shiamuslum#savior#velayah#heidar#ghidar#iran#najag#فقط_به_عشق_علی#غدیری_ام#عیدغدیر#غدیرخم#فقط_حیدر_امیرالمومنین_است@islam_pfr@jaehanfc@jaehan9192
Hell according to St. Theresa of Avila.
. "A long time after the Lord had already granted me many of the favors I've mentioned and other very lofty ones, while I was in prayer one day, I suddenly found that, without knowing how, I had seemingly been put in hell. I understood that the Lord wanted me to see the place the devils had prepared there for me and which I merited because of my sins. This experience took place within the shortest space of time, but even were I to live for many years I think it would be impossible for me to forget it. The entrance it seems to me was similar to a very long and narrow alleyway, like an oven, low and dark and confined; the floor seemed to me to consist of dirty, muddy water emitting foul stench and swarming with putrid vermin. At the end of the alleyway a hole that looked like a small cupboard was hollowed out in the wall; there I found I was placed in a cramped condition. All of this was delightful to see in comparison with what I felt there. What I have described can hardly be exaggerated. .
. "What I felt, it seems to me, cannot even begin to be exaggerated; nor can it be understood. I experienced a fire in the soul that I don't know how I could describe. The bodily pains were so unbearable that though I had suffered excruciating ones in this life and according to what doctors say, the worst that can be suffered on earth for all my nerves were shrunken when I was paralyzed, plus many other sufferings of many kinds that I endured and even some as I said, caused by the devil, these were all nothing in comparison with the ones I experienced there. I saw furthermore that they would go on without end and without ever ceasing. This, however, was nothing next to the soul's agonizing: a constriction, a suffocation, an affliction so keenly felt and with such a despairing and tormenting unhappiness that I don't know how to word it strongly enough. To say the experience is as though the soul were continually being wrested from the body would be insufficient, for it would make you think somebody else is taking away the life, whereas here it is the soul itself that tears itself in pieces. .
