    I'm a self taught artist. I didn't watch any professional artists growing up. I would describe my style as trail and error, which means lots of erasing and painting over stuff.

    Thank you for the prayers. I took a break this weekend to withdraw from CF and social media, and it really proved beneficial. I'm going to follow sampa's example and spend the next few days refocusing on what's important and spending less time online the best I can. I think that's the direction God is leading me and where I've been going wrong.


    Experiential to me would be a greater outpouring of His Spirit, or to finally step through an open door I've been praying for, in which He would be directly involved with. I've had a longing for community, and for a new phase to begin.


    I've taken 15 classes for my major, along with some as electives and core curriculum, and have only a few left before I get my degree. But the skills I've learned for model making came from my design and visual communication courses.


    Will do. :)


    That's a great point. Mobile games are very high in demand right now as well.

    I just heard from a friend of mine this morning, and there's actually an opportunity for me to join another dev team for a larger project. It's a stretch, but they did reach out to me awhile back; we'll see what God has in store.

    Anthony,

    I hope your communion with the Lord is fruitful and He directs you towards the pursuits He ordained on your behalf. May you be enlightened and refreshed in your time away.

    Good luck on the project. I hope you make the team. You'll do well. :)

    My crush knows just how to sway me. When saying "pretty please" so innocently after asking me to do a small favor for her, she is obviously aware that I have not yet let go of my crush on her since I "confessed" four months ago.

    .... As if I was ever going to say no to her.:love:

    I love the innocent bliss crushes bring. It harkens back to earlier times when all was sweet and innocent. Enjoy every morsel. :)

    You certainly need every bit of sweetness or positivity you can cling to when working in my lab on day shifts when the dreaded Nel is around. (That's who we call the manager.)

    Miss Erin commands (nicely, of course ^_^). This knight obeys.

    ... and finished with Malachi, with a few days to spare, might as well do Revelation to capstone that long section of prophetic books and then I dunno, Matthew?

    Thankful to see quite a few Catholics in here. Holding out hope that the rest of you folks will return to Christ's Church under the auspices of the Successor of St. Peter and the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

    Nah, I think I'll stick with biblical teachings rather than "church traditions" that go directly against scripture
    1 Timothy 2:5
    1 Timothy 4:1-3
    Matthew 23:9
    Exodus 20:4-5

    The Catholic Church has just way too much paganism that infiltrated into it, thanks to the influence of the Roman Empire.
    Not to mention, too much emphasis on people that were not Jesus Christ.
    In Luke 11 someone tried to do a hail Mary and Jesus rebuked her.
    The emphasis should always be on Jesus, on God, not any human aside from the incarnate. Not Peter, not Paul, not John, not Mary.
    The focus is on the Father, not the mother.

    Why isn't there a book of Jesus? Why are four of the five verses you quoted the name of a person?

    I'm not starting a debate, I've just ALWAYS wondered that. It's a bit of an anomaly to me... He's the most important yet He doesn't have his own book - instead, He has to hide away in Matthew, Mark, et al...

    Ohhhh boy .... Um, sheer number of years as a believer in Jesus Christ has shown me that nothing good or practical will likely be coming of this little conversation starter, so ... why don't we just leave it at that, okay, fellas? The finer details of your beliefs have both been made known; that will be enough.

    The Singles group is comprised of people from various denominations and beliefs. We respect our differences and the ecumenical bond we share. If Catholic fellowship is preferred you can submit a request for a new forum. :)

    To be fair, it was on "their mind".

    I actually had something else to say, but I've completely forgotten it.

    On my mind: "nothing."

    Of course it's a Baptist that makes bait where none was offered. I'm sure you know there are Catholic responses to these points, but @SarahsKnight has given me a gentle rebuke and reminded me that this is not the place.

    If I had to guess, it might be that Jesus wished to partner with human authors in the same way the Incarnation fused Deity with flesh, in the same way that Daniel's vision of the Son of Man is both supernatural entity and the saints of the Most High. Also, culturally, such messengers would carry the full weight of their Master; so, even though they don't have Jesus' name on the superscription, they typically identify the human author as an apostle/servant/(slave)/what-have-you in the introduction which is basically the same thing. That would be my guess.

    It's nice to see you again; it's been quite some time. But you're right. I shouldn't have worded my post in such a way as to start something. I had seen more Catholics in here than pretty much ever before and was happy.

    I don't recognise your name. Did you join January 2019 or are you an old member with a new account? It is nice to meet you. I've been active off and on for quite a few years. I have to say, this subforum is veritably dead since the last time I visited.


    EDIT -
    Thank you, Reese!
    It's good to see you again, too!

    Well, why doesn't God have a book just written entirely in first person, why isn't it just installed in our brains the day we're born why does it have to be a physical or digital object that we read?

    No idea, just that's the way it has been, many authors, many writing styles over many centuries.
