Yeah man. You now who you are. You know what is right. You know what is wrong.
I can accept that. Christians are doing wrong by shunning someone who decides to no longer be christian or changes their values. prodigal son
much...even if the person is an outright sinner...its not like Jesus taught us to act like certain people should be treated like lepers. He didnt shun
prostitues, or those who werent Jewish, or tax collectors. ect. Dumb asses operating out of darkened human nature did that. He TRIED to show us a
better way. He didnt give us a "better" rule book for members like a club handbook or something. Spirituality isnt about rules. Its about truth.
I used to be a devout Catholic. Now, I am more Catholic /christian than I ever was without institutionalized religion. What this REALLY means and what
the teachings truly are can be broken down to the following :
(1)Never trust a single mortal person with your immortal soul. That is YOUR responsibility and it will take sacrifices and hardships to keep a good
(2)NEVER bow down to or give subservient homage to a single mortal person... that is for God alone as you know him. Only worship God as you know you
should and want to. Not a church, a leader, a saint, a prophet or any other meat bag like yourself and especially not a club or group of meat bags.
(3) Do what you know is right. Live it, be it. commit to it. Decide to be the person you choose that you should be...not what others may like for you.
Lies an falsehoods are a dark path that WILL lead you to evil deeds. You are your actions.
Christian zealots arent christian. They are a cult. They are actually heretic groups who profane the very thought of spirituality. I judge them on a
personal level according to the laws and rules they say they live by.
You can only measure a person by what he /she thinks is right. If you say you hate liars and that they are evil and then I catch you lying I will
absolutely assume that you CHOOSE to be a bad person according to your own criteria. You dont care. You dont really believe in anything. Its all a
con. Maybe even a "get into heaven con". Its still a lie and a bunch of BS.
If you SAY love others, forgive, be charitable, ect, but you actually HATE, no matter the justification....I will then assume that you are weak and
frail in soul. That you are a broken person who will do others and myself harm because you cant help it. You are terrible by choice. Actions ARE
If you are gay and a good person who lives what you preach....if you dont justify actions that you know are wrong...ect....I will in turn say that you
are a true and honest christian- Especially over a false "christian" out there spreading hate and the message of the "enemy" as they like to call it.
"Hate each other." Yeah.....
I know gay men who are 10Xs more the christian than some of these supposed righteous ones who think they follow the rules but live lives if sin
