I just released a full-length song about an issue that’s extremely important to me. I’ve been noticing it recently, and I decided to address it in this song as April’s #16thSixteen.

"

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.

"'I believe men can be saved if they will.' My dear sir, that is not the question at all. The question is, are men ever found naturally willing to submit to the humbling terms of the gospel of Christ? We declare, upon Scriptural authority, that the human will is so desperately set on mischief, so depraved, and so inclined to everything that is evil, and so disinclined to everything that is good, that without the powerful, supernatural, irresistible influence of the Holy Spirit, no human will ever be constrained towards Christ."

"I believe the doctrine of election, because I am quite certain that, if God had not chosen me, I should never have chosen Him; and I am sure He chose me before I was born, or else He never would have chosen me afterwards; and He must have elected me for reasons unknown to me, for I never could find any reason in myself why He should have looked upon me with special love."

HAPPENING NOW [VERY IMPORTANT]: Venezuela’s soldiers are killing their people. The Government is sending their armed gangs to kill them and they have censored all the media in their country, even blocking photos posted on social media sites. They shut down all the cable channels that broadcast news, so they can’t know what’s going on. The people have no source of protection at all. Students are protesting to save their country and their lives at this very moment. All they have are their social networks to get the word out so, PLEASE RE-BLOG THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD. VENEZUELA IS ON THE BRINK OF A CIVIL WAR  AND CLOSE TO BECOMING A FULL COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP. THEIR PEOPLE NEED YOUR HELP. —— Please, this is very important to me, one of my closest friends went to visit family in Venezuela over winter break and they won’t let him come back to Florida. We’re graduating in a few months and it hurts me to know that his baseball career and all of his hard work and dedication to his grades here in the U.S. was all for nothing. Please.

use the hashtags pictured at the top of this post on your social networking sites to connect and help spread the word, thank you so much! x

one of my friends is in the middle of this shit right now and it’s terrifying, she said their twitters are getting blocked so they can’t share info, their murder rate is the second highest in the world and none of the murderers go to jail because they’re government supporters, they can’t find basic household items or food in their supermarkets, their economy has plummeted, inflation increased over 50% in the two months since 2014 started, airlines have basically left the country because the govt owes them so much money, they have no access to cars or car parts, they can’t cross any borders because their govt controls them and no one is helping them.

it is fucking pissing me off that no one is helping them when they’re asking for it and need it so much. And I am so frustrated that theres not more I can do than share things like this to spread the word, that I just have to hope enough people see it that something gets done.

I am so glad this has reached other countries. Venezuela is fighting!

Oh wow! I’m so glad this has reached other countries!

The government is censoring everything, the internet is the only mass media communication we have left so far, and not even at full lenght since twitter has seemed to be crashing down and some news pages have been blocked.

Today (February 20) there are helicopters flying over the capital cities, yesterday the national army chased and shot students from around 9pm to over past 1am, there are several wounded and unconfirmed deaths, it’s all caught on tape and the videos are available on youtube. (I posted them yesterday, I can’t find them anymore).

These videos and images are our only evidence against the government’s repression, since they claim it’s all media manipulation and say we don’t have any evidence. The only way you guys can actually help us is spreading information and sending this information to the local media in your city, be it tv, newspaper, radio or the internet (if you can).

Like I said in my other posts, I can’t really say Venezuela is fighting anymore, the national guard is gunning us down, i’d say it’s a pretty uneven fight at least. Help us spread the word!

SOS Venezuela.

Guys this is so important! My Spanish teacher left his home country of Venezuela with his wife and children years ago to escape their horrible government. His family is still there and they are horrified. He spent his entire class period talking about it and how violent it has been over there the past 9 days

Miss Venezuela was shot in the head, college students holding flowers where shot in the streets, and buildings were burnt down.

His only assignment for the weekend was to let people know about the atrocities in Venezuela. The more coverage this gets the more people will push for intervention.

Pray for Venezuela

"A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is… A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in."
