Scripture shows us when we intently walk with God we need to be aware of individuals, around us, who try to influence our behaviour.
1 John 2:16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.
Jesus gives us the truth for our strength.
Luke 5:16But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed
Are some mental disorders really demonic influences?
Ask because I lost someone who became very depressed and angry, who ended up being diagnosed with delusional thoughts/disorders.
Sometimes I wonder if some negative entity attached to this individual given the company kept. I have prayed for this individual to find peace of mind by coming to Jesus.
Chainsmokers/Illenium did a music video on this. I thought it was pretty sick(cool).I've actually been to this place. It's at "Hudson Yards", which is the nicest mall in all of NYC.
That being said, the mall strictly attracts rich foreigners looking for some good architecture and interiors, which are rare in the city. Wealthy Chinese absolutely love this place. And I don't blame them; the rest of the city lays in smoldering ruins.
The structure you referred to is quite eerie. I remember scaling to the top of it on the opening day, and thinking "What's the point?" It didn't inspire any sort of spiritual feeling within me - on the contrary, it felt like somewhat evil. Never felt this way in any other landmark I've visited.
The city of New York allows satanic rituals, voodoo, and santeria rituals and sacrifices to go on in their parks. The first time I ever saw a satanic ritual in a park in NYC was when I was six years old in a neighborhood park. It still goes on today and no one cares. There are no news stories or warnings for parents, just a few news articles about it but they are usually very careful in what they write so that they do not offend anyone, or they make a big joke out of it. They don't care that children play in these parks and see these things. There is nothing funny about walking through a park and seeing a voodoo doll tied to a tree, a goat head, dead chickens and ducks, a sacrificed baby rabbit and this was all in one park which is named Forest Park In Queens. That city is also loaded with child molesters.
I was wondering when I’d find a fellow artist on this forum. Now I wonder how to go about telling my story without completely breaking my anonymity (this, when I’ve only been on here a week).I remember when I was younger, I actually had the ambition of moving to a big city like New York, or somewhere in Florida, Georgia or California in order to make contacts and get a leg up in the illustration and/or animation fields. Looking at the output from animation studios and the art world in general, I can't imagine working for an art company and being able to look at my face in the mirror each day. If there is one area of culture that the theological and political Left control with an absolute iron fist, it's definitely the art world. Trying to make contacts with people who aren't basically card carrying members of BLM, ANTIFA or the Communist Party/Cultural Marxism is a laughable joke.
I'd recommend anyone wanting to become an artist, to self train via online tutorials or schools, similar to what is recommended on this list/article:
I will no longer encourage aspiring artists to attend art school. I just won’t do it. Unless you’re given a full ride scholarship (or have parents with money to burn), attending art school is a waste of your money.noahbradley.com
The author of this article also started his own online art school:
Also if you happen to be blessed to be near an old school style atelier, and can afford it, then go. They are very traditional and conservative, and will train you in the manner of classic masters like Leonardo and Michelangelo:
Whatever you do, avoid standard university/secular art schools like the plague. Both for being overpriced, usually having a "too many cooks in the kitchen" type of inefficient training, and the constant Marxist indoctrination you will have to endure/bite your tongue at (I speak from personal experience.) The Marxism in universities is already bad enough; in a university art school, that already noxious level of Marxism is turned up to 11. It's like being in the very center of the Hive, just mere feet away from the queen.
It is a blessing that the internet can aid us in pursuing training and a possible living outside of having to uproot ourselves from communities and go into devilish cities. I do not know how the current online purge of conservatives may affect this in the future though.
I knew of Dugin years ago because of alt-right sites where he was discussed, but Duginism made no impression on me. Now he is a bete noire that Glenn Beck tells me I need to worry about- something of a surprise there.My first completed oil portrait since I went back to it is one of Aleksandr Dugin. Don’t know how people on this site feel about Dugin, but I’m in agreement with him.
Matthis is...quite the painter of the nude!I knew of Dugin years ago because of alt-right sites where he was discussed, but Duginism made no impression on me. Now he is a bete noire that Glenn Beck tells me I need to worry about- something of a surprise there.
