The Brewery

Where thoughts and stories brew.

Anonymous asked: My friend who is a Christian told me that god only gives what we can handle but enough to challenge us, if that's that's true then why are there so many teens commuting suicide because they can't handle it anymore?

peterdwebb:

It’s not true. It’s totally a lie. 

The truth is that there will always be situations in life where we’re in over our head. Where we don’t have what it takes to overcome. This life is way too much for us to handle on our own.

We need Jesus. 

With God all things are possible. Through Him we are more than conquerors. 

It’s a huge deception that we “got this.” We were always meant to live leaning on His strength. 

hgracel asked: 1. My mom always complained that I didn't hang out with my friends enough in high school. 2. I didn't meet you until college. 3. You are exactly the kind of friend my mom would want me to have. Conclusion: My mom must be paying you to be my friend. Of course I hope you realize i'm not talking about cash here. Probably beets or kale. Am I right or am I right?

LOL!!!! I JUST SAW THIS!!!

Why am i exactly the kind of friend your mom would want you to have? I do not know if this is a good thing. 

Well. Come to think of it, she did slip me a bag of produce once saying “You girls have fun”. I’m pretty sure she was implying “fun” for the next four years.

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Since you have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, you have done it unto me.
