Today is a very sad day for me – shame on me!
Today marks the return of 1972 when I, by choice, walked away from organized religion, after experiencing first hand just how deceitful, cold, callous, hurtful, and cruel religion of men can be. It was in 1972 that I went to the local church and sought help in my personal life to only face cold rejection and physical torment that has been my black curse the last 39 years.
In October 2005, I tried to give organized religion another chance – Shame on me!
I do not want any part of any organization that does not actually do what they preach that other people should do.
I do not want to be associated with any group of people that think they are better then others.
I do not want to common with any group of people that speak brotherly love with their lips yet forget that love is an action: Not words.
I do not want to alien with any group of people that shoot there wounded instead of reaching out to help and encourage.
- To deceive is to lie.
- To correct without compassion is to be vengeful.
- To judge without knowledge is to be a hypocrite.
- To put down and demoralize is to be callous.
- To disobey God at the expense of another is cruel religion.
- To gossip is murder by character assignation.
- To assume superiority is pure arrogance.
I heard once that when times are tough you learn who your real friends are: I now know who mine are after the last 11 days.
Today, I am returning to the God that was able to do for me what I could not do for myself: The God that loved me enough to save me from an alcohol and drug induced existence.
Sober hugs to my true friends – Good bye to all fair weather friends, Guy
