Okay darlin', look-a-here....
I'm gonna tell you a little secret that I've never actually told anyone on ATS.....I ain't really stupid. Sure, there are a handful of friends I've
made on here who know who i really am & have long since figured that little nugget out on their own, but believe it or not, even despite all the
personal insults that have been made using my ATS moniker as a euphemism by those who get their panties all in a wad when they disagree with me, i
have never once defended my intellect. Feel free to read through every single post I've made, 'cuz you ain't gonna find it.
I am not involved in any sort of cult.
I do not claim any sort of denomination.
I have more than a highschool education.
Pursuit of a further education included analytic studies of World Religion in context of literature & history.
Without waxing way more eloquent and digressing further than i already have, I can emphatically state that my personal conclusion of faith is one that
is well-informed and well-thought out.
Having said that, I have come to the personal conclusion that Jesus Christ was an actual person that existed on this planet.
This conclusion then led me to the obvious one, which is Jesus either is Who He said He was, or He was a raving lunatic.
With that in mind, I pursued my personal endeavor of Truth and purpose.
What i can say is that sometimes the Truth is childishly simple, yet other times it is more strange than complicated and poorly written fiction.
What i won't do is tell someone they are going to hell or try to convince them of my beliefs. I had to arrive at my
own conclusion through working out my faith on a personal level. God calls many, but many simply have no
interest in making the effort to pursue the endeavor.
People will either pursue God, or they won't. People either believe the Bible is trustworthy, or they don't.
No amount of ranting and proselytizing, in all caps, bold letters, obnoxious colors or otherwise, will humble a man's heart towards a deeper pursuit
Accusing people of being simple minded and cult members is not The Way, brother.
