Spider if the only rules Jesus gave were to take care of one another then how does that not reflect a benevolent loving God? Why are these hard rules to follow? The rest of the rules I havent gotten into yet, things outlined by Paul and established through the Church. I saw a pastor say this is called progressive revelation. I can say that God creates and Satan destroys, this I came to be aware of yesterday. If it leads you to destroy or tear down, kill or harm, it is probably of Satan. This is where I am at as of now, and from this perspective I am going to examine things further. I cant say this is fact, its just something I realized yesterday. Again, Christs message was to take care of one another, that was his primary message and, how can that be bad?
Hunts, Im not trying to convince people because I need convincing. I share my developing understanding because it is revealed truth. I dont even hardly talk about it other then to tell them of some of the extremely supernatural things that I am experiencing, and that I believe I am being saved- thats all Ive really said. I tell them because they are my friends and I am honest about who I am, not because if I convert them then I am somehow justified or am myself convinced. Also I do want to help them because I see in them a sort of suffering that I myself experience.
Doctor, yes... my friendships, except for one in particular, are not intellectual. They are go to the bar, look pretty, get laid get drunk. The one intellectual one I am fortunate to have doesnt want to address what we have both experienced in way of God touching our lives. He doesnt deny it, he just thinks its madness. All of my friends know I have been diagnosed mentally ill, which makes it difficult to discuss anything with them because they see it as a manifestation of mental illness, but I know differently.
