What everyone else does by Ramen27 What everyone else does by Ramen27
Kind of a counter-stamp to this: [link]

Let's face it: there's a lot stupider things to devote your whole life to than God, just look at 90% of deviantART. At least the God-devout are focused on something other/better/more than just themselves.

Well, the few who are doing it right, anyway.



Feel free to add to this list

it depends
If what you devote yourself to gives you a steady living and a good amount of happiness, your set.

Every human has no real purpose as far as we can see during this lifetime.

I devote my life to anime- but I have a good reason. I want to become an anime animator. I want to learn how to draw many different anime styles. So by studying the anime, I can learn how to draw it better. Which would also be my self satisfaction.
I also devote my life to helping the ones that needed.
My brother devotes his life to videogames because he wants to create one.
Some people devote there life to deviantart because it's there job. They sell art work here, they make the money, you get the point. I don't get what's so wrong for devoting your life to something you love and/or you want to do.
I find devoting your life to your fetish, fandom, sex and getting popular stupid.
Though that's just my opinion.

Dedicating your entire life to happiness is sad and pathetic.
Because that's the reason anyone choose to dedicate their life to anything, it makes them happy.
And if that's not the reason it is not dedication.

There are plenty of people who dedicate their whole lives to things that don't make them happy. That's what addictions are.

Addictions don't make people happy.  In fact, addicts hurt themselves in the process and many want to stop but don't know how.

Also, hobby ≠ dedicating your whole life to something. -_-

Why do I need to give an example? This stamp is to people who dedicate their entire lives to something. If you don't know anyone who does that, then this does not apply to them so they needn't concern themselves with this statement. At all.

And if anyone is literally dedicating their lives to something not real, they're not going to really be happy.

No, it's not for 'those unnamed people who may-or-may-not-exist.'  After reading the description, I'm pretty sure it's for OP to feel superior over said stamp maker for having a religion. I strongly disagree with both stamps, and think they're quite petty and judgmental. 

Not real, you say?  That is subjective, as one could say the same thing about god.  I don't think you have the power to judge what makes an individual truly happy.

Okay, since you wanted an example so bad, here you go. I was so obsessed with a TV show when I was in high school that I skipped all my classes to watch it. I barely ate or slept because all I wanted to do was watch that show. I nearly failed out of high school and wasted away. I had no friends and entered a major depression. I became so detached from reality that I almost committed suicide to escape it. My parents finally had to step in and forbid me from ever watching the show again.

While I was devastated at first, I was finally able to pick up my life. I got real hobbies such as working with computer programming and dancing and branched out my interests a bit more. I found people that liked similar things that I did and was able to connect with them. I was much happier after I let go of something that was consuming my life.

Some people need a wake up call like this before they let something completely consume their life. Yes, these people do exist. I was one of them. So please quit taking offense to this when you clearly have no clue what you're talking about. You've obviously never been there, and I'm happy for you. But since you've never been there, this stamp does not apply to you. It applies to people like I was who need a bit of a wake up call so they can get into the real world and find things that will make them truly happy.

I mean, you DO have a point, constant dedication to those things CAN be pathetic, but not necessarily at all. I know dedicating time to lots of those things can be beneficial for many people if done correctly.

You again. I feel that arguing with you is like arguing with ~Buzzy-Queen-Bee, because neither of you seem to use any logic. (Except you don't seem to say suicide doesn't hurt anyone.)

Anyway, dedicating your life to God means dedicating your life to improve others. So, what's so bad about that? 
Reply
:iconacpawz:
ACPawz Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure, there are people who do that for good, but again, it usually isn't and plus, God did not invent "good", so it definitely isn't necessary to perform good.
Why do you want to argue with people, anyway? I'm just telling the truth. I don't feel like using strict logic right now because I already know the majority of Christians are hateful, and not all of them are. Seriously, it's useless arguing with you because you live in your own world, where only you're right, even when you aren't. :iconfacepalmplz:

"Majority of Christians are hateful" 

No. We are taught not to hate anyone. Haven't you ever heard of "love thy neighbor?"

Also. I do realize I'm a person who comes on as a bastard but really, I guess I was just ticked off about the fact you took the bible out of context. I'll admit not every atheist is evil (my best friend on here is one and she's super nice) but what bugged me is that you think Christians aren't as nice or moral as atheists. Which isn't true.

ACPawz Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes, I have heard of it. And I think that's actually something everyone should do, but sadly, a huge amount of Christians I know don't. A much higher percent of atheists I know follow that, actually. In fact, in honors biology (which contained about 40% atheist students, as compared to the 7% that go to my school) last year, this atheist girl was complaining about how Christians tried to shove their religion down her throat, and this Christian dude agreed, saying "we should both stop hating on each other and just get along", so yeah, I let him know I approved :XD:
I'm not sure if it's true overall, but the fact is, it most definitely isn't from what I've seen so far.

So I'm gathering that you're saying dedicating your life to something you love is a good thing, but then you insult Christians. That's self-contradictory, isn't it? We Christians are, after all, dedicating our lives to something we love.

I didn't say I agreed that dedicating your life to art or music or anything like that was pathetic. I just said you contradicted yourself by just flipping the statement around.

If your logic is that you should dedicate something that makes you happy, then that should be true across the board, shouldn't it?

Not really. The stamp was made as a backlash to another stamp. In my opinion, if someone thinks that dedicating your life to a God you truly do believe in is pathetic, then dedicating your life to all those other things is also certainly pathetic. :shrug: Seems to me like this person was more trying to make the statement that she can dedicate her life to what's important to her if all these people can dedicate their lives to, say, video games.

So what if I dedicate my life to video games?  There are thousands of people who dedicate their lives to 'god' and don't make a damn bit of effort to change anything.  In fact there's more people that dedicate their lives to 'god' and ruin lives, than there are that dedicate lives to him and do better.  Just like their are people who dedicate their lives to video games and do good, and dedicate their lives to video games and do bad. 

Why does it matter what you dedicate your life to?  You are gonna either be a good person or a bad person regardless of what you dedicate your life to?

:icongreenwavesinactive:
GreenwavesInactive Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2014
You're missing the point. I'm saying it's totally okay to dedicate your life to what you want, the point that was being made by this stamp is live life how you want and let us live life the way we want.

The person who made the stamp was upset because the stamp she was responding to was saying that it wasn't okay to dedicate your whole life to God. How is that their business anyway? If they let us dedicate our lives to our God, then we'll let others dedicate their lives to what they want. If dedicating our lives to our God makes us pathetic, then anyone who dedicates their lives to anything else is pathetic. Do you get what I'm saying? I don't think I'm wording it the best, but I hope you get it. ^^;
