Steinkorset på Krosshaug er reist i tidlig kristen tid. Slike tidlige steinkors markerte at landet var kristnet, og ble satt opp både for å "kristne" hedenske graver, for å markere kristne samlingsplasser før kirkene ble bygd, og kanskje også som minnesteiner. Korset markerer nok at stedet har vært viktig også i før-kristen tid, f.eks. som tingsted. I tidlig tid var området rundt en del av Storgaten Haugar, men senere ble Gard utskilt som egen enhet. Dette korset står direkte på fjellknausen, uten noen gravhajug under. Biskop Fridtjov Birkelid, som studerte de norske steinkorsene inngående, antyder at det kan ha blitt reist som et minnesmerke over kong Harald Hårfagres eldste sønn, kong Eirik Blodøks, som døde i England i år 945. Korset er nærmere 3 meter høyt. Det brakk i to vinteren 1846-47, og ble gjenreist i 1869 med de to delene satt sammen med jernringer. Rogaland og Sunnhordland er det området utenfor Storbritannia der det finnes flest steinkors fra tidlig kristen tid.

to all of my Hyperians. Happy Sunday to to all of the Catholic pedophile priests that havent been caught yet as well. Sunday must be their favorite day.
Was that too dark?
This is a problem that can NOT be ignored. Religion is child abuse. Not only are the lessons questionable at best, the people preaching the lessons are pedophiles! Why would you place your child in a position to be taught that God can kill anyone he wants with no reproach, that their love life is limited to a specific genitalia, that sex is bad, that God sees all and will protect them...from everything except Church officials I guess?! Religion was never meant to be taken seriously. It was simply a hypothetical guideline for people to follow before concrete laws existed. The stupid were taught that some things are right and some are wrong, to help them differentiate the decisions theyd make. But humans took it literally, thousands of years later, and its caused the most world pain and division than any other cause. This is your sacred day. This day I curse. Ad Astra 🔥⛪🔥

Repent and give your life to Jesus
I’d seen pictures of this church before I drove up a very fall hill to see it. But when you stand before it, it looms over you as it keeps a watch over Vila Franca do Campo. Yesterday I shared the view from the opposite direction, but today I’m sharing the view facing the church itself. From where I’m standing, look left and look right and you see a sea of hydrangeas on the hillside, adding a nice dash of color!
We are excited to announce we will be having monthly nights of healing here at Legacy Church! 🙌Join us for our first one happening tonight at our East Campus (4701 Wyoming Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109) at 6:30PM! We’re believing miracles will happen and chains will be broken, in the powerful Name of Jesus! All are welcome. Bring your friends and family.
“Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.” James 5:13-15
Have a few extra minutes? You’re Invited to have a Coffee Break with us!!

Christians, watch your company. You cannot grow in God's righteousness if you surround yourself by, and focus your attention on sinners.
Choose your friends wisely. We often bring ourselves to believe that our the habits of our friends won't rub off on us if we keep our focus on Christ. However, we are sinners too, and our faith is flawed, which means we turn away from God given the occasion of temptation and sin.
The Devil, who is the enemy of Christ, and of all His creation, is smart enough to disguise sin as the most beautiful of things, even friendships.
So surround yourselves with Christian friends. Surround yourselves with people you can pray with, with people who you can talk to, with people who share our common burden in Christ. Your faith can only grow in the right company.

A conversation with the Man who loves you so much that He gave up his life for you. ⠀
Did you catch that first part? A CONVERSATION.⠀
That means prayer isn't about this religious process that involves you saying the right words at the right time.⠀
It's talking about the REAL stuff you're celebrating or facing in life. ⠀
It's sometimes yelling out, "God what the heck was that about bro?!?" (well that's how I pray sometimes haha).⠀
But here's the best thing about a conversation, it's a dialogue not a monologue. ⠀
In other words, when you pray expect God to talk back. ⠀
That is all. Ben out.⠀
The ONLY way. Not being good, but trusting and confessing the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Trust In The Lord.
The answer is much more than just believing that He exists.
▪️ To believe in God means living according to His Word.
You build your life on God’s Word; you conduct yourself according to God’s Word and reckon that God, who has said it, guides everything and is a rewarder.
▪️ To believe in God means pleasing Him alone.
The person who wants to please people is never at rest, but if you believe that God rewards those who seek Him, you will be at rest.
▪️ To believe in God means living before His face in the hidden.
If you really believe in God, and believe that nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, then it is not difficult to do what is good where no one sees but God.

to read the full article "What does it mean to believe in God?"
The way to increase your faith is to "hear the word of God." Hearing the word is when you read (or listen) bible verses and put it into action. If you hear the Word and don't take action there is no effect. With great faith you can speak events into existence, heal the sick, and have all of your prayers answered. Once again, faith is confidence and assurance of what we do not see. (Hebrews: 11:1). The more you study scriptures the more your faith will increase. Having great faith is crucial, especially in these days. It is a slow process increasing your faith but it is completely worth it because you will feel the Lord is with you wherever you go. (He always is of course, but with more faith you will actually "know" that he is truly there.)
Let us not throw stones at the body of Christ, but rather pray - pray fervently - for the accountability of the sinful, justice for the innocent, and healing for the sorrowful...for there have been wolves among us dressed as priests, and their actions have hurt all who love and serve Christ.
In our darkness, let us fall to our knees, weep and rend our garments, gnash our teeth and pound our fists. Cry out to our Lord! We are right to be angry. We are justified in our deep and utter sorrow, for surely there have been tears in Heaven for far too long.
To those of us who crave action, let us seek and sign petitions for the removal of church leaders who have failed us. Let us write letters of petition to both our civil and church governances. But in every instance, let our voices speak words of healing and not of further heartache.
And finally, when we close our eyes to sleep, let us rest our hope on scripture, for our Heavenly Father is perfect and just and promises to *judge harshly ALL those who harm or lead astray even one of His beloved sheep.
(*Ezekiel 34:2-10 NLT)
