Hi Jordan, I saw a podcast with you and Jonathan Pageau discussing God and you stated that you don't know how to reconcile yourself to the fact of constant pain. I'd like to share some input and perhaps it can be helpful. I can relate to your inquiry and also to the inevitability, that constant pain is a burden that no one can escape. So the question is why must we endure this pain? Why must the innocent be exposed to such pain? Now I should preface that I am a Christian Orthodox, so I'd like to help share how I came to answer such concerns that I have been muddling with as well.
To put it concisely, suffering leads to purification and thus salvation. Now we may say to ourselves "what on earth did I do in my life to warrant such a heavy burden of suffering?" The answer is simple: if we could see our lives through the eyes of God, then that would be a real eye opener to the gravity of purification we require. Only perfection, in the eyes of God can share His company. Now I personally believe that our sins are analogous to a debt with God that we have to pay. All debts must be paid in the end, and suffering is the key to paying those debts off. Paying off our debts is the purification process to becoming without blemishes in Heaven. Sure, God will forgive the repentant, but those blemishes (debts) need to be cleaned off as well, through the purification process. Now from here, we have 2 options: purify ourselves on earth, where God regulates the measure of suffering, never giving us anything that will break us, versus purification in purgatory, where the devil will have no mercy to the suffering those souls endure, thus exceeding our limits.
Personally, I take for granted the blessings I've received. I could not imagine my life if I endured some non-life threatening accident, that would cause serious permanent damage. I couldn't imagine being a POW in the gulag's, watching my family or peers suffering. Or even being a parent who's experienced the kidnapping of their child.
The suffering I've endured wasn't easy, but at least it was regulated to my limits. Other people have strongeweaker limitations, therefore it may seem that they suffer disproportionately, but nonetheless, we all suffer together.
We are preparing for a life of Eternity. Our lives here, compared to eternity is like the puff of steam that escapes the kettle: it exists in a brief moment and then dissipates. That is why God asks us to embrace our cross, because the alternative method of paying our debts is a measure of pain and suffering beyond our tolerances. We cannot fathom with our puny brains the almost limitless levels of pain that awaits us from the devil. Therefore it is also a blessing that our sufferings here are regulated by God. If He stepped back completely and allowed the devil full reign to the measure of our sufferings on earth, then we would all be in much more pain.
Anyways, hope this can help reconcile the pain we all go through in our lives and I truly appreciate your contributions and efforts to help those in need, which is also a fast way to help pay those "debts" too! :)
and yes, we have the same initials lol

2021.12.09 00:50 GhostNsniper1 How do I removed the buttons showing in my hud?

What I'm referring to is removing that annoying "L1+R1" below my ability bar, or the "R1+Square" in my camo on the screen.
It's because since I can't bind double button combinations in this game, I changed the bindings on the ps4 itself, and now seeing "L1+R1" when it's actually L2+R2 is extremely confusing and annoying.

2021.12.09 00:50 S7tron The lack of chronology in the lore of the Thousand Hands Guild.

There is a lot of confusion in this guild, we have four characters who were members of it
Buck, Sha Lin, Koga and Skye, the problem begins in that there is no timeline of all the events surrounding this guild, so far we know the following about each one:
-Buck: The most complicated character of all, we know that he belonged to the guild, later went on to be in the magistrate, with the sentinels, then was part of the monks at ascension peak, and then went on to help the resistance.
-Sha Lin: He was a member of the guild until he betrayed them, he helped free Ying, who was a prisoner of Zhin.
-Koga: Picked up as a child, maybe he could have been the first of all to join, then he was betrayed and "forced to leave", I'll explain later why this doesn't make sense, after a while, which of course we don't know how long it happened, Koga returns to fulfill his revenge with the thousand hands, Skye is the only one who is seen to have still been part of it.

Zhin Family Friendly
-Skye: We don't know much of her involvement, we know that she is no longer a member, probably after Koga's revenge she escaped and returned to the magistrate, since it has not been confirmed that she left him, we don't know if she worked at the same time in both places.
The Thousand Hands Guild, one assumes, is a very dangerous, bloodthirsty criminal organization, it doesn't make sense that if false evidence was planted on Koga, they would have simply asked him to leave, no, they must have tried to kill him, and failed in the process, the question is who was there, was Sha Lin already gone, or Buck, was Skye already part of the guild? We don't know when this betrayal happened, therefore, we don't know who was there, we don't know when Sha Lin's one happened, and we don't know when Buck's happened. Skye and Zhin are both seen in the Siege of Ascension Peak event, there they could have met or she was already working for him, in the story I adapted, there they met and then Skye would become part of the guild.
Let's talk now about Koga and his vengeance, I'm going to mention the most annoying theory about the guild, the one where they say that Skye is the one who started the rumors about Koga, to get him out of the way, and not only that but they insist that Koga really wants to get vengeance on Skye, this can be disproved in Koga's video, in the part where they say "Koga would face his former master, and Zhin, would pay", Koga's vengeance was always directed to Zhin, and the guild itself, since he is the leader, and he is the one who made Koga go into exile, who I insist, didn't ask him in a good way.
The dialogue with Skye "You have no idea how long I've wanted to do that." (dialogue that occurs when Koga kills her in game, perhaps what most gives rise to the theory) to me does not show any kind of revenge or grudge towards Skye, rather it seems to me that he considered her a nuisance, nothing more, in the trailer it was always shown that he looked for Zhin, and Skye simply intervened, since that is what an apprentice would do. The following dialogue "Forget your training?" doesn't confirm that he knows her either.
The best solution is to mix them as little as possible, now I'll tell you how I noticed all this, I started to write a story about paladins lore, and it occurred to me to write a chapter about the thousand hands guild, I didn't know in the hell I was getting into.
To make sense of the story I made the following adjustments:
-Buck, I decided to make him the first to leave the guild, he got to know Sha Lin for a brief period of time until he finally left the guild.
-Sha Lin was NOT at the same time as Skye or Koga at the time of his betrayal of the guild, and Buck had already left the guild by then.
-Koga, I changed the time he joined the guild, it was not as a child but right after Sha Lin's betrayal, and by the time he returned, Skye was the new apprentice. There is no other way, if Koga is the first to join he would meet Buck, and maybe Sha Lin, the other way would have to be in him leaving before Buck or Sha Lin arrived.
Why the insistence on him being alone? Do you find it believable that at the time the guild is ordered to kill Koga (Which is what Zhin should have done if he felt Koga was no longer loyal to him), this would managed to beat Zhin, Skye... possibly Sha Lin (if he is still in the guild at that time)? I ask you also If Sha-Lin coexisted with Koga, Buck and Skye did he just manage to outwit them? All of them, really?, if you do it that way, you detract from the characters, make them look useless, and that's not viable.
-Skye joined the guild during Koga's exile, and was there to defend the guild in his last days. Why does Skye join during Koga's exile even though there is dialogue that could confirm they met? I don't see how this affects the plot that much, Koga considers her a nuisance, nothing more, the story between the two can be developed later, after the vengeance.
Conclusion, the more those characters coexist and this is not structured, it's better to think that they didn't get to mix too much.

2021.12.09 00:49 illstealurcherries This question is asked a million times, but is drawing halal

For some context, I was drawing since I was in 3rd grade, and I quit it about 2-3 years ago because most things I found on the topic said it was haram, I destroyed the drawings by putting them in water and throwing them away, now my brother likes to draw and my memories of drawing hits like a truck. There is a difference of drawing animate people and something like flowers, i doesn’t feel the same.
Would it be haram if

  1. It was 2d would it be haram?
  2. If I’m not worshiping it, would it be haram?
  3. If it turned out to be haram, on the day of judgement when i read my sins, will I still go to hell even if I’m a good Muslim?
“The most severely punish people on the day of resurrection will be the image makers.” And “every image maker will be in the fire.” Though it’s not clear which images as we know inanimate is halal, “those who try to imitate the creation of allah.” If I’m not try to imitate the creation of allah, and know that allah is the greatest, is it haram?
