I have had that one thrown at me from religious quarters that my experiences are demonic and will turn me away from G-d. Nonsense, are we so high and
mighty that we, who believe in G-d can tell Him that we are so superior that He needn't have bothered creating other races of beings or that He is
just limited in creating us (an imperfect specimen). My experiences have never denied my faith in the Lord or Christ and if anything have enhanced my
perception of everything around me.
There were periods in my life where I was homeless and lonely and never had an experience; yet, the lonliness didn't last long as I had my faith. The
point is I had my experiences before and after I went through the lowest periods of my life and at no time did I feel that I had had a demonic
experience, but more of an educational experience. As with the period when I was homeless and down and out with a young child. I learned a great deal
from that experience.
If anything I see Life as a learning curve and what we take from it is up to us and what we put out is also up to us. Faith is challenged when we let
it be challenged regardless of circumstances, or experiences of whatever kind terrestrial, or otherwise. We can choose to learn from it, or ignore it
and learn nothing.
I am strong enough now to tell the likes of Pat Robertson that they are the ones putting limitations on G-d's power. Besides who is he to judge the
likes of me? It was hard when I was younger to fully understand what I experienced; however, it gave me a greater appreciation for all that there is
in my life and I see others differently. I don't judge anybody good, or bad. I somehow seem to be led out of danger each and every time and my
burdens are less the older that I become and I just have my disability to cope with- a minor thing really in the grand scheme of things.
No doubt there are beings that don't have our intentions at heart; but then again, we don't take care of each other-so if we are going to continue
to be hostile, they will in turn be hostile towards us. Remember they are beings with thoughts and feelings, just like ourselves.
I am against any form of hatred in any guise and sometimes I wonder who really are the demons. Beings from other worlds, or us. There are people out
there who live to do evil to another for no reason and there are people who are saintly.
Pat Robertson should look closer to home if he suggests killing all of us who are believers or experiencers. I can say hand on heart that my faith is
secure and he is living in a glass castle making judgements that aren't his to make.
love, light and peace to all
