Today, I felt like I needed to write this post, knowing that God is telling me to. AWESOMENESS, right?
I am going to do my best not to flip out, (because when I do, I'm not very nice), but I'm am going to be honest. :D
Okay, so this post is about how this guy,
gets mistreated on the Internet! Yep.
Okay, so, I posted on Pintrest a few minutes ago about how lately, since the Hobbit movie trilogy came out, people have been posting some NASTY, JUNKY stuff on the Internet, and it involves Thranduil, played by the amazing actor, Mr. Lee Pace.
This is what I said...exactly:
"I know that there are a LOT of nasty things, and pictures of Thranduil out on the Internet, and it makes me wonder, "Do people really know who Thranduil really is, and what PJ has created with this character?" It's embarrassing for both me, and for the actor who plays Thranduil. Would you, and I'm asking all of you, do this in real life to Thranduil? I posted this video as a reminder to those that Thranduil is a living Elf, NOT a play toy."
(Here's the video. youtu.be/d5dTRAUmOX8)
Does this guy look like someone to be tampered with?
It makes sense, doesn't it? I mean, what if Thranduil really was real? How would he feel? He's a father of a GROWN son, lost his wife by death, and now, you're going to do this to him? If I was Thranduil, I would be very upset, and possibly get a little mean. I see a lot of girls writing how handsome he is, how beautiful his eyes are, how they wish that he was in their lives. And then, they create NASTY pictures of him! WOW!! Okay...weird.
I understand that he is a handsome Elf. I agree, he has a charming look to him but is he an Elf that Peter Jackson created to be nasty? And I don't mean Angry-nasty, I mean (this is very hard for me to write) 'sexy'? As in, BAD sexy? Uh...NOPE!!!!! I don't think so.
(Here is a pin that I found a while back, and this is what inspired me to make the pin description, and this post:
Why would people do this? It takes the fun out of a character that actually isn't mentioned that much in Tolkien's writings. How would Tolkien feel if he saw all this if he was alive, right now, today?
It makes me lose respect for those who post these things on the Internet.
I like the Hobbit movies, and the Lord of the Rings. But when I accidentally see these things, it makes me sick to my stomach, and I have to put those things aside, and keep on going in the right way. It's losing respect to those characters. It takes the fun out of an AMAZING Christian book series that God inspired for Tolkien to create.
The Bible even talks about sexual immorality:
1 Corinthians 6:13-20
“Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never! Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. ..."
"He who commits adultery lacks sense; he who does it destroys himself."
"If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them."
1 Thessalonians 4:7
"For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness"
(This is one reason why I do not have crushes on actors)
1 John 2:15-16
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world."
"For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
Thranduil is not the sexy, mess with any girl, type of Elf. NO SIREE!!! Tolkien did not create Thranduil for that, NOR did Mr. Jackson.
This is the Elf that Mr. Jackson created:
An Elf who loves his WIFE, not anyone else
I begging all of you, PLEASE don't get hooked on Thranduil, OR Lee Pace. You're never going to get what you want, and besides, God has a different plan for you, and a different man, not an adult, married, and possibly a father, guy.
I agree that there are many men out there that have good looks. But, what if they secretly smoke, or have married many times. Or aren't even a Christian? Lee Pace might not be a Christian. I don't know, but please stop with the sexy stuff.
I'm a 16 year old girl, who doesn't have a boyfriend yet, and I don't want a boyfriend right now. I don't even want to get married at 19. I know that out there, there is a guy who is more handsome, more kind and charming then Thranduil.
I always tell myself something like, "He's just an average human being. There isn't any man in the whole world that is inhuman. Justian Beiber is a human, Lee Pace is a human, Orlando Bloom is a human, Johnny Depp is a human, and I don't have a single crush on any of them. There's no reason too! God already had a life for them. They are His, not ours."
*I know that is isn't normally what I would post, but, sometimes, God tells us to tell others about the things that are not okay in life. I hope that ya'll understand what I was trying to get to ya'll.
Have a great rest of ya'll's afternoon!
