I Believe by Starriez I Believe by Starriez
Inspired by this starriez.deviantart.com/art/In…
Stamp or Deviation is not meant to be anti-Christ/Christian/God
We all just need a little more faith in ourselves sometimes and not expect a higher being to be there and think they'll easily take the troubles away. Believe in yourself

I don't think people understand that the upside down cross is just for the aesthetic and are actually VERY popular in the goth and other sub-goth(such as pastel goth) fashion and culture. Why do people have to make everything a debate? Can't they just enjoy this AWESOME stamp? I love the message btw!

ty! I already knew the upside down cross didn't mean anything of the sort, but people still want a debate even over aesthetic/obvious made for fun shit like this.

"Stamp or Deviation is not meant to be anti-Christ/Christian/God." Well, try explaining those upside-down crosses for starters.

it's trendy in American fashion cultures, not meant to attack anyone, because people do automatically think an upside down cross is anti-God/Christian when it actually doesn't mean that, if you did your research. The reason it's connected w the devil/anti-God ideas is bc it was used wrongly and later considered satanic.

Trendy? Are you serious? This just proves how easily influenced how entire population is. No wonder people are so lost. This conversation is over, there's no use.

dude this is nothing to get offended by lmaoooooo, how about you actually research the meaning of the upside down cross because it was actually used by the catholic church. 

I also wear upside down crosses whether on shirts or necklaces and my christian friends don't get butthurt like u about it.

(I think the main source of this argument is that you believe I'm Catholic, but I'm actually not. I am a Christian.)
I did some research before I commented, not only from my own Bible at home, but also this Christian article that states this:

"Recently, it is common for the upside-down cross to be used as a symbol of atheism, humanism, and the occult."

I mean, we both could be right at some point or another, but you believe your own ways, I'll believe my own.

To put faith in oneself is to put faith in a flawed, fragile being. In other words, it is folly. All existence is naught but a fleeting mirage, death is the only truth, the single reality...

Better than putting your faith in a homicidal genocidal self absorbed being that probably doesn't exist to begin with

The cross is pagan in origin, it represents the alinement the chakras. Both up and upside down. It's not Christian at all.

I don't see how your penis has to do with anything about the soul, so you're hiding your ignorance behind sarcasm to make yourself seem less ignorant. My pint is simple: Christianity has stolen all of its content. The proverbs, stories, characters, ect. Everything. Its a fake religion.

Everything's fake, including the personification you based your name after. It's kind of you to comfort me, though, but it's unnecessary.

I have proof my deities exists, unlike the Christian Faith that relies solely on blind faith and delusional encounters. I don't have to justify it to you, as you'd never understand, since you have your head so far up your ass you don't think you could be wrong. Besides, how each of one of my kind encounters and interacts with our deities are individual, as we are all our own person with our own physic level capability to see and hear them. Some may hear, some may not, it depends on how open you are and how hard you work to become more open physically by empowering the needed chakras.They are physical beings, but they come to us on the astral plane through projection. But no, you can't possibly be wrong. Your logic is perfect, all others is false. Nothing can beat your logic. Sarcasm, my friend, works wonders. I don't doubt science at all, I think spirituality and science go hand in hand, but the hoaxes like Christianity have hurt us to where we cannot yet explain these things.

I'm not here to comfort you, convert you, or even argue. But set one thing straight, and that was about the cross and its origins.

My age doesn't matter to you, now does it?

I do believe in myself. But I do not believe in myself wholeheartedly. I am my own constant disappointment. To believe  in myself fully would be a waste of my damn effort.

Religion was sadly a very painful expreince for me. I can't stand put my trust on religion any more mostly due to my problems and it feels like an ssue just to believe. Oh, and Westboro Church. They can go f*ck themselves.

Atheists are my bane of existence. Most are nihilistic criminals from Harlem or Jackson Heights who shoot priests and rape women.

Religion is an overused scapegoat.

yea, I am more spiritual than religious. Religion is more encouraged through fear and so is faith. And being scared into having faith in a higher being isn't having confidence in yourself or the actual confidence to believe.

"You have to be saved by the lord or you'll burn in hell." Sounds great. I've considered becoming more spiritual already, and who knows? Maybe I will be a more spiritual by the end of the year. It sounds a lot better than any religion I've heard of.

I love this stamp and its message! My mum has always been very religious (I'm atheist) and when I've been going through tough times she always says it's a shame I don't have a religious faith I can rely on to help me through. My response to that - ever since I was about ten - is that I don't need a God to believe in; I believe in my own ability to solve whatever problems life throws at me. So I can certainly relate to this and will be putting it on my page. (:

I've been there before so I see where you're coming from! I used to hold Atheist views but even now as a Christian I can still understand that just praying to God to help isn't going to suddenly end yours or my troubles without our own self-involvement and faith in ourselves. 

Most Christians don't understand that other people can get through their life without God/ or a God, especially when they believe in themselves. c: the strongest kind of faith is your own! 
Reply
:iconnotartisticatall-lol:
Yeah, I agree. Expecting prayers to randomly come true without any effort isn't going to get anyone anywhere, and nor is being self-hateful and constantly focusing on personal flaws as some Christians have a tendency to do. Thanks for the response. (:
