Getting Real : Faith No More

A message of hope...

from emgem - Tuesday, February 26, 2008
accessed 586 times

It's understandable that ex-members would wish to turn away from the Lord after their horrific experiences in a religious cult. After days of struggling to come to terms with what I now know on the subject, which I realise is only a scratch on the surface of what happened, (as a non-member) I wanted to post a message of hope...
Once again, my intentions are not to offend anyone and I apologise if I do through any naive ignorance on my part.

Our Lord is the God of free will, children
but you never had the chance to seek him for yourselves
& his heart breaks over the pain you have suffered,
for Satan stole you from us, even before you were born,
you had no chance, & neither did the Lord.

So donít trouble your minds with Jesus, God or Religion right now
& rebuild your lives as best you can,
for the Lord wants you to seek him of your own free will,
he asks the Holy Spirit to watch over you,
while keeping his distance, giving you time to heal.

But have no fear little ones, I have a message for you,
when the end of age comes,
a place has already been reserved for each one you,
for the Lord sees and knows everything,
& your compensation in the next life
will be greater than you could imagine.

Give her a break, she just read a book about the cult and was tring to be nice.

There was one line from her poem I actualy agreed with: "So donít trouble your minds with Jesus, God or Religion right now
& rebuild your lives as best you can."

Take away the "right now" and that's some pretty good advice.

(Hey AndyH, what's this about your "Lord and master Satan"? You worship Mammon during the week and Bacchus on the weekends, if I remember correctly. ;-)

Ok, you got me. Although lately serving two masters hasn't really been working, and sadly, I'm clinging to mammon and neglecting bacchus. Might you be the just the Maenad I need? What do you say? Bacchanalia at my place?(reply to this comment

Do I come to your church and preach about my lord and master, Satan? No, I don't. Please pay me the same courtesy.

No Xmas card? I can live with that. As long as you don't miss my Saturnalia party. (Jesus is going to be there, drunk as usual and very vulnerable. If you don't get him, I certainly will.)(reply to this comment

I won't be able to make it, I have another thing happening around the dark side of Uranus.

Jesus gets messy after like two beers. So make sure he has plenty of water. For a laugh, dare him to turn his water into wine...repeatedly.(reply to this comment

Please give The Lord this 'message of hope' from me:

Dear God,
Consider this your formal letter of dismissal.
Please don't take it personally
it's just that I've grown up now...
well sort of. But if I haven't, it's something I want to do on my own.

I have absolutely no interest in "the next life".
I would have moral issues with living this life in order to gain benefits in the next one.

I want to be the most beautiful person I can be just for its own sake.

Just for the sake of the world I'm in now and the people in it.

I don't need some separate entity to help me do that.
I am enough.

I can not think of one hole in my life you could possibly fill. If there are holes, it's because I want them there.

If I am seeking, it is because I am honest. I'm not trying to find answers to my questions. I want to continue asking for the sake of it.

If I feel pain or emptiness, let me feel it.

I would sincerely worry about myself if I felt satisfied. If I ever have all the answers, then I have stopped living.

So I give you permission to stop watching out for me, holding out for me, reaching out for me, whatever it is you do.

Your job here is finished. This questing, searching, experimenting, questioning human being likes it that way and does not want someone great and mighty to fill the void.

Thanks all the same.
