They aren’t kidding when they say a fine art show. That is as Truthful as the Bible.
Here is a conspectus. If I ever have more time I’ll try to write/ask more, but I’m not sure when that could be. It’s a good thing my girlfriend is imaginary, or else she would be mad because I don’t have any time to spend with her.
Before, however, I say anything, I first want to say that my intentions are in no way to make anyone feel as if I think less of any of them. If anyone feels judged or condemned, I’m judging and possibly condemning myself. I’m seeking God and thinking, not trying to be better than anyone.
Most of the reason I don’t want to go to Georgia, or Colorado, is because vacations such as those are luxuries, and I have a difficult time accepting and putting money and effort into luxuries when there are people who are homeless and starving. I don’t understand how it is right for me as a Christian, to enjoy something beyond my needs while some people cannot afford to take care of their simplest needs. How would I feel if a homeless person asked me what I did over spring break? Where is the line between selflessness, and accepting what God has given? Is going camping with friends, the most responsible way to use the money God has given me?
I also don’t want to go because that is a lot of people, and I’m always tired when I go camping, and a lot of people and fatigue make me very cranky, and I don’t want to subject people to that. And I’d want to spend even more money on film. But there are a lot of people I love that are going. And some are graduating and I might not see them much after they graduate. And I would be in the presence of like minded people and I doubt there would be a bunch of 19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; 20idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like.
Kevin and I talked at some length about this, and I have sought the counsel of someone I consider very wise. He said he would take it to the Lord in prayer as to what to respond, I like it when people answer me in that manner.
“Everything is permissible- but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible- but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.” (I Corinthians 10:23-24)
I think I’m offended that it’s thought I need food as bait to get me to attend Judson events. Gluttony is still a sin. I’m tired of food accompanying everything we do here. I wouldn’t be suprised to see classes in the 2005-2006 Judson catalogue advertising food as part of class.
So pretty much, the only stipulation for being ‘my type of girl’, is that you play with my hair. That is amazing. Maybe because no one really did it before this year and it hasn’t happened all my life so I’m not immune to it, but I love it. Don’t worry, it doesn’t mean I ‘like’ you if you do it, you’re just amazing. Why doesn’t it work when I do it to myself?
