James C. LewisIcons Of The Bible

The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

"I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."

For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

-waits for white people to flip shit-

unfing awesome

King David and me have naked things to discuss.

Those models are gorgeous and their outfits are stunning. If I was close enough I would totally go see that exhibit.

I’m a white person and I’m flipping my shit in a way probably completely unlike what that poster up there was expecting.

i.e. basically every illustrated Bible I owned in my entire life went the “everyone has golden-white skin and flowing auburn hair and wears bathrobes” route, and it’s a bit world-rocking to see what these people must actually have looked like.

I’m about 600 dollars short, I have a donate button if anyone can help. i can show vet bills to anyone who wants to see. she’s such a good baby please help or reblog if you can im really scared I’m gonna lose her

edit: this is the bill from yesterday when we got her the xrays (the radiographs per snap) and a few other things to hold her over until we can build up some money. im taking her in today at 2:40 and ill ask for a copy of the surgery bill if i can get one (they didnt give me one yesterday because i couldnt even pay for everything on the last bill) 

im also adding a picture we took of her on the vets table yesterday 

reblogging with added proof

update: we’re at 450!!! she had to be hospitalized because she’s dehydrated, they’re gonna do some ultrasounds and figure more stuff out before the surgery, thank you so much to everyone who’s already donated, we’re gonna make sure the lil baby is ok

The Animal Rescue Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily so they can meet their quota of getting FREE FOOD donated every day to abused and neglected animals in their shelters.
It takes less than a minute (only about 15 seconds actually) to go to their site and click on the purple box titled, ‘Click Here to Give - it’s FREE!’. Every click gives about .6 bowls of food to sheltered dogs. You can also click daily!
Keep in mind that this does not cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate food to abandoned/neglected animals in exchange for advertising. [via.]
Go to the website HERE.

Ok. I’m tired of the typical vampire, werewolf and fairy.I’m also tired of the occidental-centrism in mythology. Hence, this list.

About a week ago I posted this.
I’ve been getting horrible messages like this in my ask for months, including:

and my personal favorite

After getting the message saying “Just go kill yourself” I was completely done dealing with this person’s horrible messages and replied with just an “Okay.” and logged off tumblr.
About a week later I logged back on with 17 messages in my ask, most of them from the anon. I scrolled down and at first when I logged off, the anon messaged me things like

I scrolled up more and all of a sudden they started sending me more and more messages like

This was extremely surprising to me. I thought “After all those horrible messages you sent to me for MONTHS about hating me and wanting me dead, you say ‘sorry’ and that you ‘cant be responsible for someone’s suicide’?”
But I guess the lesson goes like this:
DONT TELL ANYONE TO KILL THEMSELVES UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED FOR WHAT MIGHT ACTUALLY HAPPEN

DON’T TELL ANYONE TO KILL THEMSELVES EVER.

THIS POST IS SO IMPORTANT I WANT EVERYONE ON TUMBLR IN THE WORLD TO SEE IT

This needs to be reblogged. I couldn’t scroll past this if I tried, I got a message like that but not for me, it told me to my friend to kill them self, I was livid! I didn’t answer it because a message like that doesn’t deserve an answer but I don’t see what is so funny about telling someone to kill them selves! I really don’t! It’s sick and it’s wrong. This person though, I take my hat off to you. You taught that bully a lesson.

Lesson learned: Cowardice runs all the way down in these anons.

It really goes to show that these people really have no fucking idea what they’re saying. Anon didn’t think twice about telling you to end your life and used it like any other insult (like “shut up” or “you’re stupid”)… until you disappeared for a week without leaving any sort of message. Then the possibility of you actually taking their advice skyrocketed and anon realized that, if you did in fact kill yourself, your blood would be on their hands. And that’s some seriously sobering stuff to absorb.
So let this be a lesson to everyone; don’t be that dumbass who thinks it’s okay to tell people to kill themselves. Because there’s a very real possibility that you’ll push them over the edge and they’ll take your advice, and when that happens, you’ll be responsible a piece of the blame.
