My name is Kat and I live in the great city of Chicago with my Cat Gilbert and Samoyed Nora. I'm 23 and getting my masters in cello performance. I love this city! I'm originally from Boston, and am proud of it! I'm obssessed with classical music, my puppy and kitty, Hannibal, and Doctor Who....so yeah, a proud dork!

This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:

The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.

According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.

When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.

So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.

This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.

^^^^^^^^^^^^

This could help a lot of people.

If they would listen

This, so much this. I don’t like to post a lot of political/religious stuff on my blog, but this is very important to me. I grew up in a secular Jewish home, and became Christian, however I ended up leaving my church because they failed to preach anything close to this, or were hypocritical to this.

Meet Jordan! The pianist in my piano trio. She told me the first picture might be the best picture ever taken of her, and I like to think it’s not me, but the fact that Nora just brings that out in people. Being a classical musician can be incredibly stressful! So I often invite my trio over to just cuddle and play with Nora….it really does help!

EXPERIMENT

koblala:

Reblog if you would date a bisexual person

Like if you wouldn’t because there is “too much competition”

Trying to prove a point to an asshole

hell yes! this is so stupid. If I date a guy, I’m not worried about there being “too much competition”, what makes the added difference? if he likes me for me, that’s all I need!
