It's really sad to see that so many people believe that in order to be a person of faith, you have to be brainwashed like it's some kind of
requirement or something. I don't doubt this applies to some people, but certainly not all of them.
When I was a little boy, I had ADHD really bad, so bad in fact that the catholic bible school I went to kicked me out of the church because they
couldn't deal with me. For my entire teenage life, I was athiest and was saying many of the things the athiests on this site say. I had absolutely no
interest in changing my ways or my beliefs until I was nearly 20. About a year later, I was shown a book about the bible code and in this book, it
showed how this bible code predicted 9/11 down to the exact date. "September 11th, War on Terrorism, World Trade Centers" is what it said. Although
I was no longer athiest, I wasn't a believer either. I was just kind of biding my time spiritually and didn't take what I read seriously. I read
this around 10 months before it happened and when it did, this was the beginning of my journey.
I was not pressured or scared into believing in anything and over the next three years and change, I changed in ways I never thought I would although
I didn't really know why. It wasn't until like two years ago and three more bible code predictions later that I decided to give the bible a try. I
read the entire NT first and while reading the words of Jesus, I was amazed at how many things I was already doing that Jesus taught and never knew
it. I still follow bible code today as well as reading and walking the path of Jesus. This book, the original Hebrew texts have this hidden code
written into them and it was done while writing the books we all know as the bible. No way a mere group of men wrote this book without holy guidance,
no WAY, no chance, no how.
Faith and God is not something that can be proved with science, it's something you feel in your heart. It's really not something that can be fully
put into words. I know now that the holy spirit was guiding me long before I even read the words of Jesus or any words of the bible. It would have
taken nothing short of revealing the bible code to get me to change to what I am today spiritually and not only find Jesus and God, but know them
personally. No brainwashing, only revelation through personal experiences. I know it's real and I will never return to my old ways. God came and
showed himself to me and I will never turn away again.
