A preacher preaches that we
should voluntarily give up our self for God.
We have wants, because of unsatisfied
bottled up inside.
When a little bit of that comes out; the preacher
says we have sinned.
Feeling guilty within; we are no good
for no one.
Without the caution and guilt provided
by the preacher, we may develop a barbarous nature
But honestly, we can truthfully thank
God for the
guilt and caution provided to us for being what we were created to be.
God sent to us his very own son to be
suffer, and die; so that when we did sin (being our own self), we could
be forgiven. Man - what a terrible, unjust father. Obviously God
screwed up when he made humankind, and he's using his own
son to cover
it up. God I don't want to be me - just let me die.
But God I thank you for the freedom I
have. I don't
have to believe anything unless it makes sense to me. I can search,
find and discover
truth for myself.
I thought I found it. There was an older
that I found that teaches about two gods. One god is a false god; who
created our body.
A body that always wants to sin. And a true God; the
creator of our soul. Our soul being in constant conflict with our body.
And Jesus, the Son
of the True God who came to be humiliated, stuffer
and die so that we may be free came the resurrection. That makes more
sense, I thought for
sure I had the truth.
Without question, thought or prayer -
for no reason
what-so-ever. I had this dream one night: I saw nothing, but only heard
a voice that said,
"It is true that the body is made by the false god,
but the false god also created the soul. This continues to happen, but
God takes us and
remakes us as if we were a ball of clay and makes us
His own. This process takes time." I woke up. That was the whole dream,
So what is the way: God take us and
remakes us His
own as if we were a ball of clay. I don't know how, I don't know what
Jesus has to do
with this. Several years have gone by, and I have
thought, searched and prayed, and I still don't know how, or what Jesus
has to do with this process.
But then I thought, if I did know how; I
could then tell which church was true and which church was false. I
could tell which religion was false, and
what one was true. Yes, I
could even know what system of beliefs was right or wrong. I'm just
little Ole me, maybe it's better off I not know.
God knows I ain't no
So I have come to believe that every
religion, teaching and set of beliefs leads all those who honestly seek
on THE WAY.
