I'm a modder, and soon to be indie developer(maybe).
I am also a believer in Jesus Christ,
And I believe he conquered death for me.
Wow people totally misinterpret what Jeff is saying. I think its a funny coincidence that this video is posted because I just saw and talked with Jeff at a youth confence less then 10 hours ago. But he isn't talking about God's religion, which is to help widows, etc. But how everyother religion is built upon 'our' way to God. But rather Jeff is going over the relationship instead of religion. Religion is built upon the premise that my actions bring me to God or justify me. But Jeff talked alot about the prodigal son, even though the son did bad and came back, the story was actually to the pharisees and scribes who are the religious and they were being welcomed in but Jesus leaves the story open ended. Jesus does hate religion, as much as He hates sin. Both sons were offered in though. Jeff said that it is when you place your faith in something in other then Jesus to save you that you have a problem. Like when the Galations added circumcision to the saving process. You know I think the main problem here is just that Jeff didn't make the video long enough to get into each aspect of it. But to do that it would be hours long and would not accomplish what it is meant to do. The entire thing is right, but your interpretations are wrong.
Nope, the hypocrisy of this is terrible. For instance you show the dude with signs saying "Thank God for aids." You claim he is evil. But yet I'm sure there is some part in his brain saying he is 100% right. (I'm not saying he is.) But you are calling him evil for his opinion. You also dismiss science as being considered evil. (Which I believe is not, but that doesn't mean it isn't.) There is a line between what is good, and what is evil. We learn this line not by confiding in each other, but confiding in the word of God. We can't go past biasness, "every man does what is right in his own eyes." Things like abortion, I can't respect people who agree with it, just like I can't respect rapists. There is a line between what is good and what is evil. Trying not to be bias is just as bad as being bias. When you aren't being bias you are allowing beliefs contrast to what you actually believe is true. All this does is hide what you actually want to believe in. To be honest, I don't want to respect rapist or abortionists, because then I give away a little to them in my heart. If I know what I believe is true is true. And someone else believes in something evil. I'm not going to respect that. Because that only makes it more tolerable. I may be wrong, but hey this is my opinion. And if you think we should all get along and respect each others opinions, then respect mine. Just know that I don't have to respect yours. One thing I know, I wouldn't want to get along with Hitler.
I thought the floor design is awesome.
Because they do... Look at how America has sold Blackhawks, F-15's and Apaches to Israel. Or how America uses UAV's, Reactive Armor Tiles, and UZI's invented/made by Israel. Alliances = :D
P.S. ♥ Israel.
Don't get me wrong, I think you're character model looks great. But, I think it would be better to do a "overhead" view. Because that's what it looks like the ship is doing. Alternatively you could put a side on the wall. This way it looks like it's at a angle. But you would have to change the angle in relative to the direction of the ship. Or you could have the camera follow the ship. But depending on plans for other ships. You would then have to make the wall at the angle of the camera anyway.
Dude, that is sweet.
Just a note though, it's missing the shell ejection thinger.
Super excited. :D
I want to go to there....
"For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.
So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless." - 1 Corinthians 15:56-58
"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23
"Can anything ever separate us from Christ’s love? Does it mean he no longer loves us if we have trouble or calamity, or are persecuted, or hungry, or destitute, or in danger, or threatened with death?(As the Scriptures say, “For your sake we are killed every day; we are being slaughtered like sheep.”) No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love." - Romans 8:35-37
"For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God." - 1 John 5:4-5
On the page summary, on the latest articles tab, there is a + symbol on the top right of the latest article window. When you point at it, it should say "Post Article". I agree with what you're saying. What we mean, or I do anyway, is that, people miss interpret the Bible all the time. Or maybe they read a verse, but not the context.
It's more about the "core" beliefs that everyone can agree on is what matters in the Bible. Like I believe Calvinist and non-Calvinist both go to heaven. Because that is not part of the main "Core" of Christianity.
But I do believe all the Bible is important as well. It's just...I don't know.... lot's of it is debated.
The core belief of Christianity is;
We are sinners, And Jesus is a most excellent savior.
If we accept Him. (I don't know if everyone believes with this line. But I believe it's a core part.)
They may be wrong, I don't know. But if we focus on trying to tear down someone elses belief. We start to destroy our own. We sacrifice the Bible over our own bias. The Pharisees knew more of the Bible then anyone else. And yet Jesus turned to the sinners, the gentiles, the prostitutes. He turned to the humble, the ones who would listen to Him.
We can criticize someone else's belief, or we can live by a example, and try to be the best we can be.
And we do that by digging into Gods word.
As for Nicodemus, I don't even know who that is.
Check Romans 14.
It's not about "our" theology, but it's about trying to be the best servant you can be for Jesus. These people I'm sure are doing what they think is right, and that's as any of us can do. None of us have all the right answers, that's why it's about continually seeking after God. In Romans 14, it says things like, "who are you to judge someone else's servant" and "So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God." God is the Righteous judge, and it's to Him that we will stand before, we may not always be in step with each other. But God is the judge, and I believe He looks at the intentions of our heart's. All He wants is our dedication to Him. It's not about who we are now, but who we are trying to be for Jesus.
Just been super busy...
I'm going to make a weapon for the individual vines extended on the hands.
This bill isn't being passed to reduce the freedom of speech, while it may conflict with that somewhat, It is meant to stop illegal activity. While you guys may not like this, I've had too many people I know go to jail for years because they don't have self control/moral ability to stay away from doing illegal things on the internet. People also get sent to jail, that lowers there ability of free speech, but that's not why they get sent there. "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." This isn't the government trying to tick people off, there are reasons behind every action. Try looking at both sides before you rip off on this.
Sorry for the lack of updates,
I'm kinda rewriting alot of the modules code so it's more organized.
And it's not really adding anything, but just going to make it easier to add things. The modules system isn't building properly currently so I can't really show a ingame screen-shot of stuff either. :p
But, work is still continuing. :D
I've been kinda working on it. But I'm not quite finished with college.
I will be finished with college on Thursday. :D
But I have been working on the mod a little bit this week.
The Ostrich Horse no longer looks like a pinyata.
Almost finished the HD texture for it.
Umm completely redoing the faction settings, I've been trying to reorganize the module system. It's pretty poorly organized. So hopefully it will be pretty easy to add factions and cultures. Been working on modeling skill'z as well. So hopefully progress will be kicken of pretty soon here. :D
CryENGINE 3 is great if you are going to make a free game.
Or if you can afford it's insane price.
I'd try out Unity 3D. It will work on Linux, Windows, and Mac for free.
If you make up to 100k in a year with it, you will have to buy Pro($1500)
You can also buy additional licenses for consoles.
So sell for PC, get money, then sell for console.
It also comes with Flash Support.
Does that mean its going to be free?
It will cost a lot of dough for a license.
If you plan on selling it I suggest Unity.
It will allow you to sell your game without a license.
But if you make up to 100k with it,(in a year) you have to buy Unity Pro.($1500 (But if you make that much, you can afford it))
You will also have cross-platform support, and could even make a flash version.(Windows, Mac, and Linux Support)
If your game is going to be free, CryENGINE 3 is a great choice.
"Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me."" - John 14:6
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” - John 14:7
“A little while longer and the world will see Me no more, but you will see Me. Because I live, you will live also. At that day you will know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.” - John 14:19-21
"Because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened." - Romans 1:19-21
By my opinion, most boycotts are stupid, they are meant as a attack to whomever committed "whatever". But the problem is,that the people who work there get hurt. And not to mention doesn't the bible say not to judge? Why is it that us Christians boycott anything that we consider a serious sin, but when it comes to lying,stealing, and many other sins. We don't boycott for those. Because we do those things. We think it's okay for those things to slip, everyone does it. In reality, no sin is ok, and we all are going to sin. But we are supposed to try to live a holy life pleasing unto God.
What are the features you have that take stamina?
Because 60 I imagine would be a lot in unity-script?
Google docs, works I think?
Your link isn't working.(For me anyway)
Those are some pretty sweet looking monster and weapons!
The spike gun is really epic!
Looks great, keep it up.
All of the rapture that I've ever heard from church, are biblical, it's only the timeline and the order that is all speculation, Jesus has talked many times about his second coming, not to mention the book of revelation, but the "main" point of the second coming, is that people will live, as if he is coming today, so that we will prepared for when he takes up his bride.
It's about 26:00 min's in till the sermon, if you guys want to jump straight to it.
This is a epic verse:
"No height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:39
"If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the LORD, who will intercede for him?” Nevertheless they did not heed the voice of their father, because the LORD desired to kill them." - 1 Samuel 2:25
Many times sin has it's own consequences, God is a just God, There will be a day where we are held accountable to our sin, "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts." - Proverbs 21:1 All of us have our own answers, none of us have a perfect faith, because it is impossible, Guys just ask yourselves, our my actions pleasing unto God, I don't think you guys realize the ultimate price. I have no Idea what's going on but hope I helped.
Okay I haven't been on the comments in a while, and I am trying to not be bias, but I can't find anything for your side of this, and from what I can tell, Deer Hunter is offering insight, and/or is actually on the topic of Christianity. So I'm sorry dude, you have no case.
It's not quite finished, It's pretty close, it's just I don't have time to do it and college, When I finish this semester there should be a release soon after.
