Halloween costumes are always hard to choose, especially when there are so many models available. One of the most intricate issues for many women is whether they should go for a fairy-tale costume, no matter if it is a sexy or traditional version, or if they should choose to look like their favourite movie or music star this Halloween. This is mainly because both types of costume are rather appealing and can create very sexy and attractive looks.
For example, if you are thinking about dressing up in a fairy-tale costume you can easily go for the sexy Adult Alice costume, an outfit which even though inspired by the innocent Alice, can look pretty provocative and hot. You will certainly get lots of positive comments and nobody will have the same great costume as you. There are plenty of versions of the sexy Alice outfit, so you will have to choose the dress which suits you best. In addition to that, there are also reversible costumes, which will enable you to be the sexy, yet innocent Alice and after only a couple of minutes transform into the mean and dark Queen of Hearts. This way, you will have two costumes which will enable you to change your appearance if another Alice comes into sight.
On the other hand, if Alice-inspired costumes seem too childish for you, a Madonna costume will certainly create a real impression. In her career, the queen of pop music has had numerous gorgeous outfits which have remained present in her fans minds. Yet, the image of the material girl from the '80s is by far one of the most iconic looks of Madonna. Choose one of her disco costumes from that period and create the image of a mean and materialistic girl, in search of fame and money. You will be admired and at the same time envied for your costume.
Making your mind up between one or another type of costumes can be quite an issue, especially when both of them have great potential in attracting many compliments. Yet, choosing your look is an essential step in purchasing this year's Halloween costume. Thus take a look at each of the above mentioned types of outfit and see which one is more suitable for you and for the type of Halloween party you are going to attend. Only this way will you be able to make the correct decision and have an outstanding costume which will go perfectly with your personality and with the event you are going to attend.
Hell! It's a terrifying subject, at least for those who think about it. But most don't. Britney Spears and Madonna garner more attention than the penalty of sin awaiting sinners. The Bible says that someday "anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:15). Surely those who enter that fiery place will wish they had taken the topic more seriously! This article is your opportunity to discover the truth in advance. Hopefully, it will help motivate you to avoid such an unfortunate fate, plus clear up clear massive confusion about a terribly misunderstood subject.
That's right, massive confusion. Believe it or not, many popular views about Hell are wrong, even though preached on TV by Christian ministers. Obviously, opinions vary. Some believe the word "Hell" simply means "separation from God," that's it. According to this perspective, Hell has no flames, only loneliness. Others believe that "Life is Hell," and that "Hell" is merely a symbolic term representing the cruel trials we humans often endure on earth. In stark contrast, the traditional view now being taught by most churches is that Hell is a literal, hot, subterranean smoky place somewhere beneath our feet where lost souls instantly soar at the moment of death. According to this view, the damned are sizzling right now, somewhere, consciously, and painfully. Most who espouse this last view believe that Hell never ends.
What is the truth? You are about to find out. But first, let me clarify that this writer strongly believes what the Bible says - literally. Yes, there is a Hell, and yes, it's a fiery Hell. So in case you are wondering, don't worry, I'm not an unbeliever, a liberal, or a heretic. Yet as we plunge into this controversial topic, my conclusions may shock you. Prepare yourself. Above all, I encourage you to pick up a copy of the Bible, look up the texts I am about to show you, and see for yourself. As you are about to see, what many think about Hell isn't always exactly what God's Word really says. Here we go...
To begin with, there are actually three different Greek words that are translated "Hell" in our English New Testaments. It's important to know this, for they each mean something different. They are "Tartarus," "Gehenna," and "Hades." Tartarus is used only once in the New Testament, in 2 Peter 2:4. The Scripture says,
God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell [Tartarus], and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment (2 Peter 2:4, KJV).
This verse says that "the angels that sinned," which would include Lucifer, too, have already been cast down "to hell" by God Himself. Yet they aren't roasting right now, obviously, and they certainly aren't suffering somewhere far beneath Los Angeles or Tokyo. Tartarus means "dark abyss" or "place of restraint." It isn't a place of punishment either. Look carefully. 2 Peter 2:4 says Satan's angels are "reserved unto judgment," which means their punishment is yet future. For Lucifer and his diabolical demons, the fire hasn't started yet. So much for Tartarus.
