  1. Mesme convinces AJ, that it wouldn't hurt to just relax and eat one apple from her trees. At first, AJ wasn't sure, but the very stubborn pony soon felt deeply relaxed by Mesmes eyes, thinking that his idea dosen't sound so bad, making her smile a bit.

  3. The Genesis Of Equestria Book 1: LIFE So I've had an idea for this sort of origin story for a while, years even. Basically I wanted to do a fan fic series that goes through the entire history of the MLP world. This is the first chapter of that series, I guess we'll just see where it goes from here. It's sort of written like a bible (as you will see as you read through). Now I do have a question, I was wanting to post this on a fanfic site but I can't seem to find any other medium that could support this format. Do you know of any sites that could if there even are any sites that could? UPDATE: I decided to post this on fimfiction (if I can get it approved). My profile: http://www.fimfiction.net/user/ghost%20child
  4. 'Search' seems to be down, so sorry if this has been done before. Okay, this question isn't just for any Christians or religious followers out there, it's for anypony- atheists and agnostics included. By referring to scripture (it can be any religious scripture, by the way), I don't necessarily mean that you respect or believe the whole thing (I certainly don't respect some of what the Bible teaches), but that you find something worthwhile in it that you consider helpful for you or somepony you're trying to help. In my case, though I'm an agnostic, I do find myself mentioning something from the Bible occasionally (17 years of being a Christian is hard to erase ) when I'm trying to help somepony. The part about everyone being in 'the image of God', for instance, I like a lot, even though I don't believe in God- the unity and inner sameness it seems to suggest we all have just feels comforting for some reason. How about for you ponies? Also, what do you think of the atheist versions of religion (Christian atheism, for instance)? Do you have a different opinion of them compared to what it's based on, and if so, in a good or bad way?
  5. Even more excerpts from my Rainbow Dash-themed bible. Posting them at dA, and then posting them here. Pegasus, 2:14 Rainbow knocked aside the purple one's hoof, "I will not be defeated this day! Cloudsdale needeth our aid, and this be the charge of all able-bodied pegasi." Her determination was great; rivaled only by her Awesome. Pity that many had succumbed to the Flu of the Feather. Scrunch, 4:2 "Up!" She demanded of the yellow mare. "We have donned our armor and lifted our lance, and we shall inspire the Crystal ones to revelry." Her words moved the timid pony, and Rainbow promised to curb her might. Which... She probably did not do. Like at all. Scrunch, 6:15 Tenderly, with outstretched wing, she pulled the filly close. "I shall be your mentor and sister, and I will keep you safe from those who tirelessly seek the Rusty Horseshoe." This comforted the little orange one. And snuggles did follow. Wonderbolts I, 7:2 Down and down her companions fell, but with great haste and immediacy did Rainbow act. She sculpted a cloud in the sky and made it their salvation; delivering them to the safety of hooves above. Just was her rebuke of the reckless one's actions. The same mare that had bendeth her wing and won favor through misdeed.
  6. When I was writing this lesson, I was hesitant about writing it because I have been dealing with a lot of anxiety. I didn't want to come across as not practicing what I preach, then I realized that I shouldn't cover up on what's really going on -pretending I don't have any problems- but, I should be real instead. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Topic: Don’t Worry Philippians 4:6-7 · “6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” In Philippians 4:6, it says to not be anxious about anything. · Anxious means to be worried or eagerly wishing, (i.e. she anxiously waited to go to the bathroom.) Then it says what we can do to cope with anxiety. · “ .. by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God…” - You might be wondering what it means by praying and to petition, to pray is to simply tell God how you feel, to petition is to ask God to help you overcome your feelings of anxiety. Matthew 6: 25- 34 · “25Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[a]? 28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” - In Matthew 6:26-34, it talks about how we don’t need to worry because if God has taken care of the birds, grass, and flowers’ needs, how much more will he take care of us. - Our Heavenly Father knows what we need, but we have to seek his kingdom and righteousness first and all your of needs will be taken care of. ♦ Twilight is the perfect example of what can happen when you worry constantly, for instance, in season 2, episode 20 (It’s about Time) and season 2, episode 3 (Lesson Zero), Twilight is worrying about late work and worrying about a disaster that is not coming, because of Twilight worrying, her appearance tend to get altered, (messy hair, bags under her eyes, etc.), and she also lack of sleep. In “It’s About Time” Twilight learns that she shouldn't worry about the future because every day has enough trouble of its own.

  8. Topic: Friendship is Worth Fighting for Proverbs 17:17a · “ A friend loves at all times” - In MLP, they mention the Elements of Harmony frequently throughout the series. The Element of Harmony is consists of Laughter (Pinkie Pie), Kindness (Fluttershy), Generosity (Rarity), Loyalty (Rainbow Dash), Honesty (Apple Jack), and Magic (Twilight Sparkle). - In Season 1, Episode 1, we are introduced to the mane 6, (in order of appearance) Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Apple Jack, Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Fluttershy. They become friends, despite what Twilight expected. The group of friends becomes united and involved in each other’s lives, supporting each other no matter what. (refer to season 1, episode 16 "Sonic Rainboom") 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 · “(4) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres. (8)(a) Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” In 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, it describes what love is. Then in verse 8a, it says “Love never fails.” - In MLP, Season 2; Episode 1 (The Return of Harmony, Part 2), Discord (Discord is a chimera since he is composed of the body parts of different animals). His head is horse-like; He has a deer antler on the right, a blue goat horn on the left, one long fang, different-sized pupils, a snake tongue, a goat beard, and white bushy eyebrows. He has the right arm of a lion, the left claw of an eagle, the right leg of a lizard, and the left leg of a goat. In addition, he has a bat's right wing, a Pegasus' left wing, a horse's mane, and a dragon-like snake's tail with a white tail tuft. The shape of his body resembles that of a snake.)( http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Discord#Physical_appearance , Physical Appearance) finds a way to separate the six friends by making them become the opposite of their element, (i.e. Rainbow Dash’s element is loyalty, thus becomes disloyal, Fluttershy’s element is kindness and becomes unkind and mean). - At first, Twilight temporarily gives up because Discord leaves Twilight's spirit broken and her faith in friendship lost, then Princess Celestia sends all of Twilight's friendship reports back to her. The letters Twilight reads include the ones she wrote in Bridle Gossip, Over a Barrel, and The Cutie Mark Chronicles. These reports ultimately renew Twilight's spirit and faith in friendship (http://mlp.wikia.com/wiki/Friendship_lessons#The_Return_of_Harmony_Part_2 , Season 2) The friends learn that friendship won’t always be easy, but it is, without a doubt, worth fighting for.
  9. Is homosexuality acceptable under a Christian perspective? This is a topic that I found elsewhere from someone else. Now I have a very serious question to other Christian believers out there. Leviticus 20:13 13 “‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads. Okay let me get this straight gay people should be punished under death right that is what is said. For the longest time I detested gay people and was very closed minded to many things but as of two years past I have really become more open minded to things. Gay people are like anyone else they are human beings wanting to find happiness within' this life. What right does anyone have to strip someone of that right there? Why would a all loving God wish upon death to gay people? That if I start to think about it is pretty sick. Death really people? what condones that? I don't have any problems with gay people should they not have a right to be happy in their life? So please I would really like some feedback on this with honest answers because it is really confusing to me as a Christian to hear this... Thanks
  10. For a few weeks I've been trying to know God and start establishing a relationship with him. Obviously a few weeks might not be enough since I still don't feel connected yet. What's really been scaring me is this verse, Matthew 7:21-23 : “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’ (I don't think that's the King James version) Basically, no matter how good of a person you are, if you do not truly know Jesus, you will be denied entry to heaven. I'm not trying to find a way out to not befriending Jesus, but I just feel like so many people today aren't that kind of person that Jesus is looking for. It's not enough to just believe in Jesus and his actions, or read the bible or go to church; it has to be important to you (this is again, my interpretation derived from a bible study). I've been worried enough to even tell a few friends about this, but feel like people aren't really buying into this. Think about all the people who might fall into the unfortunate: your family members like brothers and sisters and father and mother, unable to realize they failed to know Jesus, going into the eternal flame :/. It's hard to bear the idea that so many people you might look up to and love so much might just not make it. What if I never get the chance to know Jesus like he wants us to? I just don't think it's fair that people who are hard loving and full of kindness are considered "evildoers" because of a lack of faith, and they just might not be aware of this... I know this is how I am interpreting it (although I reeeally keep pondering on this), but how would my friends in the brony world interpret this verse? I would also appreciate if I didn't get any comments that suggested this is why you believe there is no such God. I feel like this isn't a question I should ask when I am only starting to know God, and a "reassuring answer" that will remove this fear might dissuade me from following Christ. Then again, it's good not to fear God (and befriend him) and that is what I am aiming for!
  11. It's time we tried reviving the forum from this drought of nothing to talk about we seem to have entered. So I was randomly thinking of things and this particular idea came to me. Strange, I'm not even a Christian, agnostic deist or something like that, but why the hell not. I'm pretty sure a good number of us have actually read some books of the Bible, regardless of our religious affiliation/ no affiliation. So I've read a few and one book has always stuck out to me: Ecclesiastes. I read it about two months ago and it really resonated with me. The thought process it brings up is actually very interesting, partially because this book originated from Judaism, old testament, back when heaven wasn't really a big topic. Life was just more about helping your fellow man and giving thanks to god back then. The afterlife wasn't considered important/non existent. The message of this book is basically this. Also has probably one of my favorite quotes of all time in it: Parts of this book are also kind of odd, to me anyways, like they've been warped a little to serve the Church better, but the general underlying themes are still there. So what is your favorite book out of the Bible?
  12. A lot of people are wondering what's up with evil being sealed for 1,000 years. Well, it was actually God's idea first; or last, depending on how you look at it. You see, in the book of Revelation, Saint John has a vision of the end of days. After Satin's defeat, he is chained and thrown down a bottomless pit. 1,000 years later, the seal is removed and he's given a second chance, which promptly squanders. So God incinerates him and throws his soul into the lake of fire. Because burning him to death once didn't make the message clear enough, I guess. Anyway, can anypony find any other Biblical references in FiM?
  13. I'm sure you all know about these four godly folks that are said to end the world. Yes, I am sure that this has been done before. Just accept that I made them in my own little style
  14. Okay, a serious picture for once. I tried my best to make Moses as he appears in The Prince of Egypt. Here's what I have so far. The eyes are off and I couldn't get the nose right. Just don't look in his eyes and all will be good.
