I’ve seen a lot of posts about mental illness on Tumblr, and they all offer sympathy to those who suffer from bipolar, anxiety, insomnia, OCD, eating disoders, depression, and others. It is a wonderful thing that we feel sympathy toward people with these mental illnesses.

I have never once, however, seen any sympathy for those who suffer from antisocial personality disorder (i.e. sociopaths & psychopaths). Perhaps we don’t consider them mentally ill. Or we do, but we don’t want to offer them sympathy because the consequences of this disorder are more severe. We should be treating them as we do everyone else with mental illnesses, as they have no choice in the matter and have to live with these things just like everyone else with a disorder.


“By raising Christ from death, God as the supreme Judge set his seal to the absolute perfection and completeness of his atoning work. The resurrection is a public announcement to the world that the penalty of death has been borne by Christ to its bitter end and that in consequence the dominion of guilt has been broken, the curse annihilated forevermore.” Geerhardus Vos

“Oh the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!
For who has known the mind of The Lord,
Or who can be his counselor?
Or who has given a gift to him
That he might be repaid?
For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.”
Romans 11:33-36

“Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say, ‘There is no resurrection of the dead’? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is without foundation, and so is your faith. In addition, we are found to be false witnesses about God, because we have testified about God that He raised up Christ — whom He did not raise up if in fact the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, Christ has not been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. Therefore, those who have fallen asleep in Christ have also perished. If we have put our hope in Christ for this life only, we should be pitied more than anyone.” 1 Corinthians 15:12-19

“Hell is angry because it has been thwarted! Hell is angry because it has been mocked! Hell is angry because it has been destroyed! It is angry because it has been abolished! It is angry because it has been taken captive! Hell seized a body but discovered God. It seized earth and it encountered heaven. It seized what it saw and was vanquished by what it did not see. O death, where is thy sting? O hell, where is thy victory?” John Chrysostom

“When should a Christian, then, be like Jesus Christ? Is there a time when he may strip off his regimentals—when the warrior may unbuckle his armor, and become like other men? Oh! no; at all times, and in every place let the Christian be what he professes to be.” Charles Spurgeon

Apr 12
“On the contrary, a man will be justified by faith when, excluded from the righteousness of works, he by faith lays hold of the righteousness of Christ, and clothed in it appears in the sight of God not as a sinner, but as righteous. Thus we simply interpret justification, as the acceptance with which God receives us into his favor as if we were righteous; and we say that this justification consists in the forgiveness of sins and the imputation of the righteousness of Christ.” John Calvin, Institutes of The Christian Religion

It is the woman who has been raped who understands what rape is, not the rapist. It is the person who has been slandered who understands what slander is, not the slanderer.

It is the one who died for our sins who understands what evil is, not the skeptics.

Ravi Zacharias

“External Christianity is not enough.
For no one has any communion with Christ but he who has received the true knowledge of him from the word of the Gospel.
The gospel is not a doctrine to be of the tongue, but of life. It cannot be grasped by reason and memory only, but it is fully understood when it possesses the whole soul and penetrates to the inner recesses of the heart. Our religion will be unprofitable if it does not change our heart, pervade our manners, and transform us into new creatures.”
John Calvin, Golden Booklet of the True Christian Life

Anonymous asked: Could you elaborate our individual rights post? It seems interesting but I'm not sure I really get what you're referring to.

People apply a standard of treatment to minority groups (as they should) but turn around and treat people they don’t like in a way that contradicts that same code of conduct.


It doesn’t seem important to people these days to emphasize individual rights as frequently as they emphasize the rights of minorities. Just as it is wrong to treat minorities as sub-human with regard to race or religion, it is wrong to treat any individual as sub-human because of alternative views or behavior. The curse that we have as a culture is that we lack the ability to disagree with someone without viewing them as some kind of monster.
