This should tell you all you need on a number of levels
"clean up clean up everybody do your share" what the FUCK is this communist propaganda
So….I totally never thought about this. I’m sure very few of you have. I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit disturbed…
Wow. Food for thought. I’m sure there’s an answer though.
Their names were translated/Anglicized after going from Greek to English.
The names of the Apostles are of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew origins. The Hebrew, Aramaic and “Greek” named Apostles were:
Shim’on = Simon (Hebrew origin).
Y’hochanan = John (Hebrew origin).
Mattithyahu = Matthew (Hebrew origin).
Ya’aqov = James (Hebrew origin meaning Jacob).
Bar-Tôlmay = Bartholomew (Aramaic, which is related to Hebrew).
Judah = Jude / Saint Jude (not to be confused with Judas Iscariot, Hebrew origin).
Yehuda = Judas Iscariot (Hebrew origin, Betrayed Yeshua/Yehosua the Messiah).
Cephas / Kephas = Peter (Hebrew / Aramaic origin meaning “Rock”).
Tau’ma = Thomas (Aramaic origin).
Andrew = Andrew (Greek origin. Is the brother of Cephas / Kephas).
Phillip = Phillip (Greek origin).
You will note that there are only 11 names, that is because there were 2 Apostles named Ya’aqov (James), which brings the total to 12 apostles.
To expand on this, Jesus’s name is Anglicized in this way as well. We get Jesus from the Latin form of the Greek “Ἰησοῦς”(Iēsous), which is derived from the Herbrew “ישוע”(Yeshu’a, which meant “YHWH is Salvaion”, YHWH, or Yahweh being the name of God). When another form of that name, ” יְהוֹשֻׁעַ”(Yeoshu’a) was allowed to Anglicize through a different set of corruptions, it entered the English Language through Reformist Protestants as the name “Joshua”.
Yes. Jesus’s actual name is Joshua.
I learned these from my Humanities teacher in college but the only thing that stuck with me three years later is that Peter=Rock aka Rocky. Peter was a big burly guy named Rocky.
I don’t care what kind of blog I have I will blog this no matter what.
"Craving sensation: feeling unreal" was such a huge part of the beginning of my relapse. I was convinced that people in front of me didn’t even exist and I kept touching things and trying to feel sensation. I’m reblogging because I know that that was so horrifying for me and I never want anyone else to go through it.Just in case this can help someone. Some suggestions also seem harmful (eating a hot pepper really hurts!!!) but steps to feeling better and not self harming is most important. Sending you love and light
STOP SCROLLING! Please reblog this vitally important information because at least one of your followers is self-harming. Thank you!
You don’t need scars, you don’t need bruises, headaches or pain in the days following. Please - there are so many ways to fight this.
The 40+ scars on my leg are begging you to make positive changes and fight the urge to harm yourself, redirect the feelings
i wish when i felt threatened or angry or embarrased my hair would do the expandy fluffy thing like in ghibli films
absolutely destroy the idea that you have to be loved romantically and love romantically
destroy the idea that the end goal of life is to get into a romantic relationship/marriage
romantic love isn’t a requirement to live life and it never will be
Anyone who makes fun of fanfiction has never read really good fanfiction.
#although better would be #’anyone who makes fun of fanfiction does not understand what ‘fanfiction’ actually is’ #because #um #fanfic has been around since the roman times? #like the entire roman pantheon was just greek fanfic #and the aeneid was straight-up self-insert fanfiction of the odyssey #shakespeare wrote fanfic of greek mythology #people have been writing au fanfic of shakespeare’s plays basically since the ink dried on the goddamn scripts #the only difference now is that its become the home base of teenage girls on the internet #and #as anyone knows #anything that is done by teenage girls #and particularly by teenage girls on the internet #is inherently mock-worthy #because fuck you that’s why #seriously fuck people who dismiss fanfiction #and i’m not just saying that because i write it #or maybe i am i mean #i learned how to write on fanfic #it’s given me one of the few things in my life that i am truly confident about #i’ve made friends #a support group #i’ve learned a lot about a lot of things #fuck people who mock fandom #just #just fuck them (via andromeda3116)

"I do it for me"
Oh really? You know, I do wonder how likely it would have been for you to have begun shaving off natural body hair if you hadn’t been informed from day one that natural hair on women is “gross” and that this was the beauty standard to aspire to.
The “I do it for me” choice-y feminism thing is bogus and please dear everything, apply critical thinking as to why it is we do the things we do.
I really really really love this post because as a woman who does shave I’m all over this. I don’t shave because I want to. I shave because I’m afraid of social backlash. Point blank. I wish I was strong enough and bold enough to face the criticism, but I’m not. I applaud all women who don’t shave and I hope one day I can say fuck it and just not shave. I think though once we all stop fooling ourselves with the ‘I do it for me’ thing, maybe we can have a real change with this stigma…you don’t ‘do it for you’ you would have never ‘done it for you’ if generations hadn’t told you that shaving was the ‘appropriate’ thing to do.
