Consequently, I questioned why I scored as a Guardian Temperament before? After an in-depth discussion with my wife, we came to the conclusion that it was because I was trying to emulate Guardian ideals and living styles during a crisis period in my life. I felt that it was what I needed to be at the time, so I answered the questions accordingly. While my core temperament has always been an ENFP (looking back as a child this makes sense too) I tried to be an E (I) STJ because I was trying to be reliable, strong and dependable; no wonder I fell into a depression! We always thought there may be an additional reason for my depression, besides my occupation. In view of all this, I realized it was because I was allowing shame and a sense of who I should be, instead of who I am, control me. (This was no fault of the Kiersey test, rather my own, due to the fact that when I originally answered the Kiersey test, it was time that I was emulating what I thought was needed.) I was trying to be someone I was not. I went against the core to my being. In doing so, I caused myself to face many unnecessary issues by not embracing and accepting who I really am.

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" should be retitled "The Desecration of the Hobbit"
I was utterly shocked, from the beginning of the movie through to it's end, that Peter Jackson so blatantly diverged from the actual story. With so many additional freedoms that Peter took, the only thing similar to the actual book was a its outline, a very rough one at that, of the original story. I understand that Peter Jackson is presenting a version of his own with these movies, but he has gone too far in this second edition. While the cinema was great and the action was, by far, more intense than the first movie, I feel that there was no excuse for this movies contortions of the original characters and that the movie would have been just as successful while remaining truer to J.R.R. Tolkien's "the Hobbit".

There once existed an ancient religion, and in that religion a God was worshiped. The God was Mithra, Sun God. With ties to Zoroastrianism, dating back to ancient Persia, one must wonder how much impact this religion had on Judaism and, in turn, Christianity and then Islam. It is important to note that this religion existed before the development of Christianity and while these two religions are different, today's Christian may be surprised to see the similarities that they do have with one another.
Similarities like the following:
