Ask Your Questions Here Anonymous Board owner 01/09/2016 (Sat) 09:04:14 [Preview] No. 1 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
This thread is your introduction to /hope/. Make sure to read the rules before posting. Any and all questions you may have will be answered here. In the meantime here is a short FAQ based on questions I received while on 8chan:

1. What is this board?

/hope/ is a very new board created on 8chan in October of 2015. It was born out of a thread on /christian/ in which an anon asked for ideas on how to help all of the miserable and unfortunate people "on imageboards in the whole world." /hope/ was one such idea, and was created that same day.

2. So what do you do here?

As the rules state, /hope/ is for helping your fellow anons. Imageboards contain a large segment of fairly miserable people - people who in times past would receive assistance from their families, friends, neighborhood associations, and churches. In these fallen times, however, we only have each other. Our motto is that whatever can be achieved to help anons over the internet, we will achieve. Of course, we kind of need a userbase to do that. So, our proximate goal is to create a culture of charitable anons.

3. What constitutes "help"?

For now? Advice, kind words, conversation, resource and information-sharing, and so on. We hope to eventually have a large and dedicated userbase that can organize things like building wikis, organizing social events, teaching workshops, and providing material and financial assistance to needy anons - or maybe just a Secret Santa-type deal on the holidays. What we can achieve is really only limited by what anons are willing to do for each other.

Is the prospect of a "Secret Santa" type deal being put forward because more people are down during the Christmas period?

I like this a lot and will stick around as much as possible.

I think a board with a christian mission will actually end up being more "Christian" than a "Christian" board because instead of sitting round having a go at each other we'll actually have a focus. Which is why Jesus sent us out in the first place so we wouldn't just be tearing each other to shreds . Give our energy somewhere useful to go

Suicide / Addiction Anonymous 02/27/2016 (Sat) 09:38:53 [Preview] No. 14 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Just went to a funeral of a family friend that was an addict and hung himself in his garage. He was in late 20s and it was rough hearing all his friend and how he had touched all their lives but to himself, he felt worthless. It's very easy to trick yourself into thinking you're the worst person alive, that's why it's important to ask for help, talk to people. A lot of have been there too but recovered. His last words was "freedom from fear".

His mom posted this chainletter shit but I think it has a good message:
>Many people think that a suicide attempt is a selfish move because the person just does not care about the people left behind. I can tell you that when a person gets to that point, they truly believe that their loved ones will be much better off with them gone.This is mental illness not selfishness. TRUTH: Depression is a terrible disease and seems relentless. A lot of us have been close to that edge, or dealt with family members in a crisis, and some have lost friends and loved ones. Let's look out for each other and stop sweeping mental illness under the rug. Give a moment of support to all those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. Thank you!

If you're having problems with depression: First see doctor, there could be a chemical imbalance that can only be treated by medicine. Any and all health professionals will help and take it seriously if you tell them you sometimes have trouble with depression.

Failing that here are a little of some small things you can try on your own to help get in a better position.

If you're having problems with drugs or alcohol check out your local AA or NA. There are more people out there with the same problem going through similar things. And I got to hang out with a lot of them after the funeral and they're awesome people.

Thank you for taking the time to post this on our board, anon.

I know that feel.
I feel like a worthless piece of shit 24/7, yet I am somewhat aware that I influence lives.

I wouldn't trust the medicines industry. Apparently the drugs just make you apathetic. Some connections to violent tendencies because of them have been made as well.

This might sound lame but I'd suggest taking a long break from work and cutting back on expenses for a while as a better way to treat depression, maybe change your environment for the time being as well. If you have no interests in anything, get some (or just look around various fields or topics.)

I should note however that I have no experience with drugs. Last paragraph in OP sounds like good advice.

Enough people in my life have had positive experiences with anti-depressants to the point where I can't discount them completely. At the same time, I completely agree that they should be a last resort, and/or for people with severe legitimate brain chemical issues, and should not be passed out like candy on Halloween.

This thread is for bumping the board to keep it alive in case we ever need it. Since 8chan seems to be recovering somewhat, I guess that would only be when /hope/ gains an actual following and can expand.

could i first of all please ask for biblical discernment of the freemasons?.. sometimes i feel like im going too hard on them but then i see things like that dont ever need to be said because they are so unchristian.

Anonymous 02/27/2016 (Sat) 16:17:05 [Preview] No. 17 del

Discernment is something you ask from God, anon. Don't ask us.

Also, I know absolutely nothing about the freemasons, so I can't comment. Why do you ask?

Be wise as serpents.
Here's a good starting point:

Even if you completely strip away all the creepy Illuminati aspects, on just a pure surface level a Christian should have nothing to do with Freemasonry:
