Hello, World!

What’s all this, then? What’s this site doing here, anyway? Why did I make a whole new site/domain when I already have one?

Well, it’s simple, or at least it seemed simple to me when I got the idea to make another site, in addition to the one I already have and post in. The idea was to make a separate site where I basically post only what I wrote, that is, poems, prose, and things in other literary styles, as well as sharing here links to my LMMS tracks that I uploaded to my SoundCloud page, which is the same name as this site: Battle, Adventure, Beauty.

Also, I have come to think that perhaps my GloryToGodALoneVP site has become, shall I say, cluttered, and I think that it would become increasingly difficult for people to find just my poems/prose/writings and soundcloud links because of all the other things I post there which aren’t my own writings.

I want to make it much easier for people to find things I wrote and published/posted online, well, on my GloryToGodAloneVP site, and soundcloud, and though I did also post plenty on my facebook and twitter which I posted on GTGAVP, I don’t provide links to those social media pages here, I’d need a good reason and request to share links to those media sites.

So, then, in the coming weeks I will basically be adding/copying/transferring all the poems/prose from my GloryToGodAloneVP site to this one, one post at a time, and removing it from that site so that all posts which have to do with poems/prose/etc. that I shared/posted there will only be found on this site. This will make it easier for people to find all that and it will be more organized site here and less cluttered-looking site there.

The focus of both sites remains the same: doing all for the glory of God. Having separate sites will simply show the different parts of the primary focus and goal I have in mind.

This will not be a small task for me to undertake or finish but I believe it’s worth the time and effort to do this. I want both sites to have what I intend them to have and shine the specific light that each has for all readers to see.

May God be glorified by what I do now and always, and may my posts and work be for the good of people.


“Foolish Words and the Gospel Truth.” Note by me.

“Foolish Words and the Gospel Truth.” Note by me.

It’s truly one of the stupidest things atheists and whoever else says or thinks such things as shown in the pictures below of the sign and the shirt, can think or say.
No matter how sarcastic they’re being, no matter if they are just joking or really believe their own words, see it for what it is.


It really shows atheist (and others’) ignorance, their pride, their darkened understanding, their closed, small minds; it shows they hate God and Christ; it shows they foolishly think Christ is on their level (a mere mortal they can kill); it shows their rebellion against the Creator and displays their sinfulness and their desperate need for but denial of their need for Christ the Savior.
They need most Christ whom they foolishly think they could kill with their fragile mortal hands when He comes back.
They need the Gospel which they deny is true or necessary or that it’s even good news for any.
They need to surrender to the God they’ve denied even exists; they need the Truth that sets free indeed; they need the Lamb of God to take away their sins and forgive them, to reconcile them to God, to change them from condemned sinners into redeemed saints, to save their souls and make them into who God wants them to be.
They need to see God’s truth (His whole Word, the Bible), but not just see it or consider it, they need to embrace it and really believe it for it to have a real effect on their life and soul and destiny.

We could smirk when we see such stupid signs and shirts with such messages on them, or we could get angry at them and spout our worst criticisms at such people and words, or we could look at it and see it as it is beyond the surface: a desperate cry of now-condemned souls who in vain fight against God and Christ but are in need of His grace and forgiveness and salvation through Christ.
They’re people we can pity and forget about or we can pray specifically about these lost ones because they really do need the prayers, for them to come to repentance and understanding of God’s truth.
The current state of their souls is a miserable and an unenviable one. Jesus said such people are already condemned, they’re on their way to Hell, regardless of what they say or believe otherwise. If we don’t believe Christ’s own words on this matter, we should stop calling ourselves Christians. Jesus died for such atheist fools and blind agnostics, for idolaters and pagans, to set them free from their bondage to sin, from the chains of their condemnation.
Jesus died for the unworthy, the undeserving, and the whole human race falls into that category. See, it’s not about our worthiness, it’s about God’s love and why He saw it right to make a sure way for sinners to be saved, forgiven, justified, reconciled to their Creator and made His children in Christ.

So then, while we will still see many more of such stupid signs or words from atheists or pagans, let it not turn you into one who just ignores those lost sinners, use it as a way to start a talk with them and tell them God’s truth, give them God’s Gospel, show them the love of Christ that is in you through actions and not just words. It’s not your part to make them accept the truth and be saved, you’re not the Holy Spirit, your part is all that Christ said is your part in the matter, so don’t dilute the truth and don’t give them half the truth, give them the whole Gospel in love and the Holy Spirit will do all that you can’t in the person’s heart and mind.

“Christ Can Save You Now”

Written by: Victor P.

“Christ Can Save You Now”

No, all is not lost yet, weary sinner,
There is true salvation in the Savior,
There is yet hope, hear and listen,
To repent and believe now hasten.

Are you feeling lost within and without?
Empty inside with seemingly only doubt,
The dead ends and failures fill your past,
You try to hope this darkness won’t last.

Weighed down by guilt and shame,
Knowing you are the one to blame,
Come to the Lord and ask for forgiveness,
He’ll clothe you in Christ’s righteousness.

Seeing the world through materialist eyes
Has only led to emptinesss, defeat, hopelessness.
Naturalistic notions proved so hollow, shallow, superficial,
See now how unsatisfying atheism is for any soul!

How simple to believe in atheistic naturalism
But how useless it is for spirit, soul, heart, and mind.
There is a truth God has revealed to us
And He wants us all to accept it wholly!

This is the truth: Christ is the hope of every sinner now and always
See, everyone who doesn’t believe in Christ is already condemned
But faith and repentance can change where you’ll be for eternity,
By God’s grace through faith in Christ you can be saved now!

What keeps you from believing in and on Jesus Christ?
Don’t think you have any real reason not to believe,
Don’t listen anymore to the lies of all who are against Christ
Lay down your pride, surrender to Christ who is Lord and Savior.

Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, don’t think you’ll live as long as you want,
Don’t waste every opportunity God gave and is giving you
To come to surrender to Christ and by Him be really saved,
Don’t ignore the call of God, come as you are, only Christ can save you!

Christ can save you, He can wash away all of your sins
By His precious Blood that was shed for you,
He can take away your guilt and shame and blame,
You’re not too sinful, filthy, guilty to be saved by Christ even now!

Trust in the truth of God’s words, no lies in them,
Take Him at His word, He never lied and never will,
God calls you now to repentance, to Christ, to salvation,
To new life, to spiritual life, to truly live as He created you to.

This is the truth God wants you to know and believe,
You’re not here to exist a few decades and then die,
God calls you to true life found only in Him,
He wants you to come and be saved through Christ.

If these words seem strange or silly to you right now, reader,
May God open your mind to see what you’ve missed or ignored before,
May He remove the veil from your eyes, the scales on them,
May you come to believe the truth much sooner than later!

If you still think it’s all just one belief no better or truer than another,
You simply don’t realize yet how important and real God’s truth is.
God help you understand what you’ve not understood for so long,
To come to the knowledge of the truth about Christ and salvation.

Hear, God’s calling you to come to repentance today,
To be forgiven and to be reconciled to Him through Christ,
Don’t reject salvation, oh, don’t reject Christ His Son,
You’ll die one day, don’t die an unbeliever, come to Christ now!

A Picture and a Note by me.


A Picture and a Note by me.

Is it possible they don’t realize they’re being hypocrites? Unlikely.
If they believe the lies of pro-choice/pro-abortion propaganda they may believe abortion doesn’t kill an actual human but that’s a void excuse because of all the pro-life materials available online and can learn from any pro-life person.
Either way, they’re being hypocrites if they say they’re against the murder of children by one way but are pro-abortion.
They can pretend they don’t see their hypocrisy but not for long.
Abortion is murder, no matter what the pro-choice, pro-abortion, pro-death side says; their opinions and feelings on this matter don’t change the reality.
Murder of innocent human life by means of guns or by abortion is murder either way.
If you’re not looking at it the way God does, you’re looking at it wrong, obviously, no matter what the society or your opinion is.
Don’t bother protesting murder of kids by guns if you believe abortion is ok and that it isn’t murder, otherwise you just tell the world you’re a hypocrite.

“Against Meaninglessness”

“Against Meaninglessness”

“This life is all you get,
There’s nothing after death.”
It’s a comforting delusion
For those with pitiful hopes.

All their words seem so empty,
They spread their hopelessness,
It all seems so meaningless in the end.
Do they believe it themselves?

Are we all just fooling ourselves?
Are we all just fooling one another?
If this is all as meaningless as they say
Then there’s nothing to keep despair away.

Can you show us something you love,
Watch it die and say it’s just life?
Can all the pain and all the tears
Mean nothing to you in the end?

Can’t live this way – exist and die,
“Nothing is eternal,” fools say,
Nihilism is despair, it’s useless,
Don’t believe those fools’ delusions.

“To Praise You, Lord”

Written by: Victor P.

“To Praise You, Lord”

We will sing to You
And praise Your holy name,
You’re the Way and Truth
And the Life of all, Lord.

God, forgive our sins,
Wash away our shame,
Fill us with Your Holy Spirit
And make us whole again.

Lead us where You will,
Be our strength to fight
The battles yet to come,
In it all be with us, Lord.

The Devil and Hell may rage,
Our bodies may grow weak
But You will be our strength
For You’ve overcome it all.

You are the Way,
You are the Truth,
You are the Life,
You are all we need!

“Thoughts Through Days”

Written by: Victor P.

“Thoughts Through Days”

Lies through crooked teeth
Reach itching ears tickled plenty.
A veil for a coward with no spine,
The chance to pass the drawn line,
The cancer of the modern mind,
The pride of the foolish blind.

Blood spatter on white sheets,
Bloody hands and innocents’ ends,
Some prayer to ceiling reaches,
Some liar others to lie teaches.

Through broken glass see hope for tomorrow,
Through tears and loss see the good in sorrow,
Through dark times tread the set path,
Through faith in Christ escape wrath.

Bloody knuckles and aching knees,
Weary hearts and longing souls,
Shattered dreams and cold enemies,
Lives with those unfilled holes.

To broken hearts mending shown,
To seeking souls truth made known,
To faithful ones reward given,
To the repentant sins forgiven.

An encouraging word from dry lips,
A hand to keep from dangerous slips,
A smile from a face of scars from life,
A warm embrace for one fighting strife.

“Others’ Perceptions of Christians” Note by me.

“Others’ Perceptions of Christians” Note by me.

Originally just a comment; shared here for others’ benefit–

Our perception of others affects our attitude toward and treatment of others.

Those who say or think all Christians are hypocrites or they all think they’re better than everyone else, those people are making fallacious statements and reaching illogical conclusions.
Those people who say such things about Christians aren’t making an objective conclusion or stating a fact about the reality of things; they’re saying what they personally or subjectively have come to conclude and assume about Christians based on their past or present interactions and relation with them, which were or are the negative ones and that’s what they choose to use as a basis for their false belief that Christians are all hypocrites or think they’re better than everyone else.
These conclusions and perception of Christians are fallacious and subjective, based on ignorance, biases, prejudices, stereotypes, and paint a very flawed picture of Christians as a whole, because the person who’s had negative past experiences with Christians have only had experiences with such a tiny number of Christians compared to how many there are now around the world with which they’ve had no interaction with nor experiences on which they can base their perception of them.

To be fair, Christians can be guilty of the same thing – making fallacious conclusions and having wrong perceptions of others based on some subjective reason instead of something objective to go on.
Our perception of others should be evaluated, corrected, adjusted, conforming to God’s Word on the matter, to God’s view and perception.
