  • Hello everyone I just want to say that Jesus loves u all, he wants you to be with him in heaven someday and not hell. It’s not by being a good person that gets us to heaven. It’s by believing/ having faith that Jesus himself died for your sins on the cross and also believing that he literally rose from the dead three days later and repent. Repentance means to have a change of mind/heart on something, to realize that your are a sinner and in need of a savior(myself included). I have made that decision will you? And if you believe these things as truth then you will be saved. One last thing it’s a relationship that Jesus wants, he knows you already now it’s time to get to know him if you want to that is. Life is short but eternity is long whether you are in heaven or hell it’s your choice to make to be saved or not. I love you but Jesus loves you more, God bless🥰🥰

  • I think the warden was once an iron golem, but was taken over by the very thing that also made up skulk sensors. It would explain how the warden is able to take in signals and also send signals to the skulk sensors, since technically they are the same being. So instead of one, single individual, the warden is actually a network of skulk sensors including the beast that we all know and (possibly?) hate.

  • It is so funny how people who would threaten someone, dox him and his pregnant wife just because he does have the same opinion and all this coming from the people screeching acceptance and DIVERSITY but not of opinions or thought. Of course let us not forget how it is not ok to be white, male or straight and finally where are all the people kneeling and apologizing for South Africa or Zimbabwe? If anything all the things that I have mentioned are reason people are FORCEFULLY driven on the "evil, bigot, -insert any king of- ism and phobe". Good job diversity crowd people you are truly the pinnacle of virtue, then again every single authoritarian despot also thought they were virtue incarnate.

  • I kinda have a theory about the house’s but I’m not saying it’s true So the “Emily” house I think right after Henry re made Charlotte and after his son “died” which most believe his son is name is “Sammy” in the comic where Williams name is David Miller or as people believe it’s Charlotte’s twin and quote “ I remember I had a twin “. So .. Henry moved out without a thought because the house brought back the memories leaving everything even the stuffed animal and the camera’s along with the broken window, William / David moved in with his kids Elizabeth afton, crying child and mike or as I believe if he did have a mom her name was Mrs Afton or ____ Schmidt . Like mike Schmidt that’s why it wasn’t proven to be mike or Micheal afton instead he got the last name Schmidt like the night guard. And Henry also had forgotten the disks/ the night mare Scarring the crying child for no reason explaining why he is so scared of the animatronic’s and Fred bear so In the books that’s why Charlie said it was her house and why ennard was Abel to kill mike Anyway this isn’t proven -
