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.

“On Foundations of Sand”

“On Foundations of Sand”

Fallen men are always building
On foundations of sand,
They keep hoping they could be
An exception to the rule of reality.

The best of plans and intentions,
All for nothing in the end,
Exercises in futility, sad to see,
An example in action of insanity.

Building on the sand, temporal, unstable,
Leaving Christ out of it all,
World’s wisdom for the willing,
Invest in a guaranteed failure.

A bleaker future can’t be imagined,
Songs of the world lull them to sleep,
All for the body, nothing for the spirit,
Once born, dead inside, hopeless by choice.

So it’s coming down to this point in time,
Everything’s coming to some end,
It’s all coming down on their heads,
They can’t shift the blame, it’s their fault.

If you reject Christ as your life’s foundation
Then blame yourself in the end, just be honest;
It’s nobody’s fault you chose this way,
You’re just getting what you want.

Live with your choices and reap what you’ve sown,
You don’t care for God, you live like He doesn’t exist,
You’re living in your own little world
But it’s going to fall apart and burn to nothing.
…….
Glory to God Alone

“Not Being Oblivious” note by me.

“Not Being Oblivious” note by me.

While conceited liberals spout nonsense and illogical baloney and force it on others, outside their bubble of narcissism events affect people and their livelihoods directly negatively which they couldn’t care less about or they’re just oblivious to since they’re so focused on themselves and their feeeelings and how everything offends them and stuff.
Maybe if they take their heads out of their butts once in a while and take off their goggles of political correctness, they’d realize life’s not all about them and there are people in need of help, truth, prayers, not hearing liberal snowflake jargon and their illogical garbage that goes against reality, science, faith.
This can easily apply to non-liberals and non-narcissists, to any who are just too busy to ponder the implications or significance of such events which have a direct effect on others’ lives, much less pray about affected people.
One is a fool who believes people are inherently or basically good; humanism lies, humanism’s wrong.

“What’s Popular Isn’t Necessarily Right” Note by me.

“What’s Popular Isn’t Necessarily Right” Note by me.

What’s vogue/popular for many doesn’t mean it’s right or ok.
The popularity of a thing doesn’t equal it automatically being ok or right or moral or useful for individuals or society.
Appealing to the popularity of a thing or mere opinion of some in favor of a thing, is fallacious.
If people cared about clear thinking and avoiding fallacious reasoning, they’d reject mere opinions of some in favor of a thing as a valid reason for thinking it’s ok or right, they’d use critical thinking instead to evaluate, examine, critique, and reach a reasonable, logical, rational decision about the thing in question.

“Atheists and Life’s Meaning” note by me.

“Atheists and Life’s Meaning” note by me.
–originally just a long comment, shared here for all–

While not all atheists are nihilists, all nihilists are atheists.

Some atheists like to make up their own meaning of life in hopes of not succumbing to hopelessness, depression, or despair, to function sufficiently on a daily basis and appear to be living a happy life but underneath no one sees the reality of their inner emptiness and the uselessness of their superficial meaning of life.

Atheists deny the existence of God who created all.
They reject any claim or authority God deserves and demands by the fact that He’s the Creator, Maker, Sustainer, God.
They deny they’re made in God’s image.
They deny there’s sin and that they’ve disobeyed God’s laws and fall short of His glory.
They deny their need for a Savior, to save them from their sins, from just condemnation for transgression of God’s Law, they deny their need of grace, mercy, forgiveness, and salvation.

How can they find meaning in life when the deny the existence of God who gave them life?
They can’t find a real and valid meaning of life because they reject the source of it, that is, God.
They can hold on to a superficial meaning they’ve manufactured but it’s inadequate and useless in the long run, and for some even in the short run.

Their problem then is whether to keep denying the existence of God and His rightful claim on their life as Creator, Maker, Sustainer, Judge, or to come to believe in Him and embrace Him as God and source of meaning and purpose in life and follow the God’s precepts, principles, and commandments found in His Word for the good of humanity and the stability of the world.

It’s their choice and yes, without the Holy Spirit they won’t come to truth and repentance so truth must be told to them in love and the Holy Spirit asked to work in the life and heart of the atheist to lead them to the truth, to Christ, to salvation, to new life.

“Abortion is Murder” Note by me.

“Abortion is Murder” Note by me.
Very recently read in a book (pro-life) that mentioned the most common abortion procedures done and at what time usually in the pregnancy; nasty stuff, terribly evil, yet for some reason it’s legalized in so many places?
Just feel free to treat the most innocent and defenseless of human beings in wombs as disposable crap you’d rather never see because consequences of actions aren’t for facing or accepting by either the male or female?
That’s called 21st century progress in ‘health’care?
As said by many, it’s a culture of death that devalues human life, slowly but noticeably becoming barbaric toward each other.

What many pro-choice people don’t understand or just ignore is that it’s not the mother being aborted, it’s not her body being aborted, mutilated, butchered, it’s that of a defenseless separate body in their womb that’s being murdered at their request, one with brain activity, heartbeat, feels pain, all that any human has or does, just at a much earlier stage, it’s not a clump of cells by any stretch of imagination, it’s a real human being in there, is that so hard to understand?
Did they never learn that humans only give birth to humans?
Do they not know a whole new human is conceived and begins their life in the womb, doesn’t magically become a human only when birthed and declared wanted and allowed to live by mother or father?

“Las Vegas Tragedy” note by me.

“Las Vegas Tragedy” note by me.
What happened in Las Vegas is tragic but not something that wasn’t inevitable, for simple reasons.

For a place called Sin City by so many, were some people expecting it to be some kind of death-free sinners’ haven with no probability of such a massacre ever happening? Talk about foolish hope and unrealistic expectations and probabilities!

Do some fools out there still deny the existence of evil after this event? Yes, because they’re fools and live in denial.

If you boast of your allowing of sinful activities for a whole city, you’re not only inviting crime, terrible immorality and misery, you’re inviting death and should accept that such negative consequences will surely come.

If you’re really using your brain, you can’t pretend this kind of thing couldn’t or should never have happened there.

God commands sexual purity before marriage (and fidelity during) because …

God commands sexual purity before marriage (and fidelity during) because He knows what’s best and His laws aren’t man-made so they’re not flawed or erroneous.
Teenagers are to be taught this not only because it’s right but also because it will benefit them greatly; they’ll shine as examples of purity in a world obsessed with sex and propagating immorality.
Teenagers being taught sexual purity will help them avoid much trouble and heartbreak and the consequences of such immoral actions.

Basically, whatever God says in His Word on this matter is what we should heed and obey out of our love for Him and for the good of others.
