Wow Jim...you are good my friend...and yes that was indeed me...obsessing about not reading my bible every day...and wondering
if I wasn't on that slippery slope I had heard so much about, that ultimately would take me straight to Hell. tee hee
My thoughts these days regarding the bible are still pretty mixed up. I'm not struggling anymore with is it okay to not read your
bible sometimes...Now I'm struggling with what to do with the bible period. I'm asking questions I never would have dared
asked back then. I'm asking Father....how can I trust the bible when I've seen so many people with an agenda bring out
scripture in an order to support whatever there agenda is. I can't just blindly believe something anymore just because
its scripture from the bible. I won't get into that whole tangled ball of yarn right now.
Believers Rest thats right I remember now, and now that you mention it I remember random though in fact
I remember they included a couple of my random thoughts back then...and wow...I sure had a lot of random thoughts
back then...come to think of it, that really hasn't changed in fact I probably have more as I've been able to step
back aways and for awhile from the machinery of church...I've been able to dare to formulate questions that would
have been to terrified of asking before. You know Jim those questions that put you on the slippery slope, or open
doors into the occult that you will wish you never opened. Just those words alone go along way to keeping the sheep
safely in the pen, huddled together all bleating with one voice in time with each other. I guess I'm a black sheep, jumped
the fence, and became a baaahhhhh....d, lone ranger sheep...took up rap music, and moved to the city. : )
Still tryin to figure it out, but know that Father loves all His sheep wherever they happen to be.
I'm starting to suspect the slippery slope actually leads to Father's arms too, but well I could be wrong. I just
know that as I ventured down the dreaded slope, He's always been right there with me.
Wonderful to see you again Jim...I'm so glad I found the shovel again.
Jesus loves me this i know, anything eles is up for grabs.
