Im so confused!
« on: November 28, 2009, 08:09:21 PM »
Rules state  must post here first.

My story is so long, complex and messed up, that im way to weary today to share.

But the basics are: I cannot live with the idea of a wrathful God (even tho I have felt his wrath and no one can talk me out of that, they all try) I have a mental illess and Christianity has worsened it! I was in a cult that preached fear and beyond. I have also felt Gods tremendous love and was delivered from Addiction.

I cannot read the Bible for what i grasp is an arrogant, sadistic punisher who LOVES you? Hello?

I know God And Jesus Are True, but I cannot figure out their character. Im at a point of leaving this religion for it torments me. 

Im terrified of God cause I did not follow after salvation and he got pissed! I continued to sin and will contiue to sin becuz its OUR nature.I try to be pure, but fail daily.

Im confused and tormented. All these Christians Say "ill pray for you" or "God is Good" well, im living proof that God can be cruel with backsliders.

Okay, thats all i can manage.

thx

  Hi Confused ,
 
   Its the pits isnt it ...  sounds like you need  the peace of  the Lord right now  ,  but  there are times when you do just give up  trying 

 :sigh:
   but the Lord  will rescue you  out of it all
    maybe you are trying to hard or thinking to much about it ,  this will drive you crazy . btw . prayer is a good thing , not a bad thing
 
  What is most important to you at this time ?
 
  His peace  to you ,  sure  mean that  :HeartThrob:

"Human beings tend to focus on the worst, rather than the best."

The Spirit is boundless for it is not subjected to the limitations of human thought, thus, on the surface man's ways
are really insignificant. And he cannot comprehend the existence of error, when too deeply immersed in it.

Things are not always as they appear.

Hey confused...

I saved this awhile back. Don't remember where I found it:


Blessed Are the Confused

*M. Scott Peck*


"When Jesus gave his big sermon, the first words out of his mouth were: "Blessed are the poor in spirit." There are a number of ways to translate"poor in spirit," but on an intellectual level, the best translation is "confused."

Blessed are the confused. If you ask why Jesus might have said that, then I must point out to you that confusion leads to a search for clarification and with that search comes a great deal of learning. For an old idea to die and a new and better idea to take place, we have to go through periods of confusion. It is uncomfortable, sometimes painful to be in such periods. Nonetheless it is blessed because when we are in them, we are open to the new, we are looking, we are growing.

And so it is that Jesus said, "Blessed are the confused." Virtually all of the evil in this world is committed by people who are absolutely certain they know what they're doing. It is not committed by people who think of themselves as confused. It is not committed by the poor in spirit".

Now, this teaching makes sense to me!





"I knelt to drink,
And knew that I was on the brink
Of endless joy. And everywhere
I turned I saw a wonder there."

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Hang in here with us brother.  Many of us have come out of confusing situations.  Our God is a healing God, and it's especially apparent when we come into His truths.  There is much light and comfort there.  Stay and learn that God really does love you.  His punishments are corrective, not to torture us as many teach - and then we believe it, see God that way, and our flesh takes advantage of that - making us miserable.  Learn of God's goodness, we will try to help.

Jesus, Savior of the world. I John 4:42

God's blessing, James.
Neither should there be vulgar speech, foolish talk, or coarse jesting--all of which are out of character--but rather thanksgiving.  Eph. 5:4  **  Saved 1John 3.2, Eph. 2:8, John 1:12 - Being saved 2Cor. 4:16 2Peter 3:18 - Will be saved 1Peter 1:5 Romans 8:23

I cannot live with the idea of a wrathful God
You don't have to as you will learn if you vistit this forum more often.

I have also felt Gods tremendous love
And that is what the Bible teaches. The wrath is nothing but the teachings of man.

There are a lot of free articles and books on the main site that proof, in a scriptual manner, that the warth God is a fable.

Firsy watch this little video. I think it makes you feel a little better: http://www.tentmaker.org/forum/index.php?topic=7339.0

1 Timothy 2:3-4  ...God our Savior;  Who will have all men to be saved...

Romans 4:5 But to the one who does not work, but believes in the one who declares the ungodly righteous ...

With all the law and performance that both Christians and society has taught us it's a wonder that any of us are still sane.

If you are not presently in a position to study or read the bible then my personal advice is don't, until you think you might be ready.

The bible is about relationship.
But it is a book that is easy to misunderstand when read through a lot of pre-programing.

Some of the wrath scriptures are best described in what takes place in the conscience of man.

We also know that we have a linear existence here. So that means learning things sometimes the hard way. We need history in other words. But still I know that God is love

My very personal conviction is that nothing that is good and loving is ever lost permanently for us.

And when we do goodness and loving kindness it is eternal. When it is done to us it is eternal. No one we love is forever lost or will ever be.

God loves us unconditionally. But Fathers still have to teach us and we still have to learn things, about love and loving others and loving ourselves.

Just some thoughts.
Only take from it what might be of any benefit for you.
Barry

Hey Confused:

I don't know your story, but I strongly suspect that it was Orthodox Christianity that has failed you.

When you have about 45 minutes, please watch this four-part video series on Carlton Pearson.  Just remember, you can be a follower of Jesus and honor Him in your life without being a "Christian".  It's just a label.  I will guarantee you that Our Father will NOT ask you what others call you!  God Loves you and knows your Heart but cares not about "your label"! :thumbsup:

Good advice, John. 

Confused - my heart goes out to you.  I used to feel the same way you do now.  It's a symptom of traveling through Babylon (carnality/religion).  It leads to much confusion and little peace.   Hope you stick around and hang on to your rope.

I am in the same confusion. You are not alone. You mentioned mental illness ... I have struggled with it my whole life (depression, anxiety). It is a terrible feeling to think you never can do enough to please God, to feel that God sees you as a miserable failure who is not worthy of His Kingdom. This I have felt for a long time. But, for the first time in my life, I am realizing why Jesus really came, to save us precisely because we cannot save ourselves. To save us and forgive us our sins, not to condemn. This is salvation and peace is starting to fill my life. My old way of thinking comes back sometimes but I am on my way.

Be patient with yourself. We ALL fall many times.

I wish i thought about god as you did think . I would LOVE to know that God hates me and sees me as not worth of his kingdome .
I rather think that He sees me this way and will FORCE me to be in his kingdome . This makes my life even more misarable . PLEASE dont make the mistake to believe in UR . Hell is a better place than this brainwashing evil doctrine .Here God is a brainwashing , evil being with no true justice,or TRUE LOVE  that forces people to be with Him even if they never asked for it . It is worse to feel like you are forced to be with an evil being ,or brainwashed to love it ,than be in hell .
Every single day i hate this doctrine more and more . It is manipulative ,evil and lying. There is no true justice in it and no true love .

What if God would not force you? What if God shows you evidence that your view was wrong and you simply change you view because of that?

Goto  hospital and talk to someone with 3rd degree burns all over their body. They had a tiny example of what the ET hell is.  I can't believe you or anyone would prefer to be in such a place.

What would be best according to you VID? That at judgement God asks you if you want to stop existing. You may not like to be with God because you didn't choose Him. But other didn't choose hell. Isn't that equally unfair?

Never wanted hell for enyone . I just think that what you believe is NOT better .
Being forced ,or brainwashed in to God ,or being in hell are BOTH crap .

Quote

If He does ask me such a thing ,it only confirms to my thought that He is evil . I just want to have a choice to not serve Him ,or not be with Him . I dont want hells ,or enything . Every being desires to exist and that is obvious .

Quote

No doctrine . Doctrines have NOT true love and justice .

What i think comes CLOSE to goodness is perfect independence and freedom .Goodness and love .
Those things should be a gift for every being .

Just to understand your view better. So you would chose that you would be put on a nice planet where you just live on without ever hearing of God again. Just live on that planet with others that made the same choice as you did. Is that what you mean VID?

Nope .
I want to be independent . That means : No one can make you be tortured . No one can force you to do enything you dont want . No one can put you where you dont want .No one can manipulate you . No one and NOTHING will  bind you ,make you a slave , make you incapable of the things you can be capable in ,or infact in enything .
None can boss you arround . You are pefectly ok and whole in your self . You are good and loving UNCONDITIONALY . And powerfull and DOING and GIVING ALL YOUR LOVE without limitations NOW and to everyone .

This is as CLOSE as i can get to the truth about what i think that should be . O do my mind is too small and BOUND to touch what i desire.

I dont want to be a god ,or whatever . I want to be the things that i said and i want this for everyone .
I know its sounds stupid ,but just call me a dreamer and that is better than being a slave to enything .

Just to understand your view better. So you would chose that you would be put on a nice planet where you just live on without ever hearing of God again. Just live on that planet with others that made the same choice as you did. Is that what you mean VID?

Nope .
I want to be independent . That means : No one can make you be tortured . No one can force you to do enything you dont want . No one can put you where you dont want .No one can manipulate you . No one and NOTHING will  bind you ,make you a slave , make you incapable of the things you can be capable in ,or infact in enything .
None can boss you arround . You are pefectly ok and whole in your self . You are good and loving UNCONDITIONALY . And powerfull and DOING and GIVING ALL YOUR LOVE without limitations NOW and to everyone .

It doesn't sound stupid to me, V.I.D.  It sounds a lot like this--


 We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

--Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence, 1776

This is a nice idea ,but i dont believe that eny goverment has ever been like this .
And yes it is simular ,but i do not like liberty ,i like freedom .

I have had some research and know that the goverment of every country just tries to bound people in order to achieve the political goals that they have .

Only because people allow it, V.I.D.

But, isn't your ideal that people would no longer allow themselves to be bound?  That was Jefferson's ideal--Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness for all.

Why do you think i am still without a job ?
I left my job because i could not stand the mercyless exploitation that the company had toward the workers .
They were smart and very nice people ,yet used like mops for miserable payment .
And now i am unhapy because i dont have a job and dont know what the future will bring .

People allow it YES . But those that want a change are such a small group that it is only their heads that will hurt from the atempts they make to change things .

That is why i dont like your god aswell . I didnt choose to be here ! I dont want to be here !
And i did not choose to be limited and bounded as i am now . Even if one day i have the best job and live in the best nation ,i am still a small piece of dust in this universe that the big powers can use without care of what suffering may be on my head .

You may think it irrelevant, but Jesus experienced the same thing.  That's why he said this--


Luke 9:23
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.


He knew he was fighting for something bigger than himself as one man, and that his disciples would be few in number against a huge, unjust, man-made system.

He also promised us he would be with us in the battle--it's a spiritual war, which you have already perceived--

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

These are the things his followers have to find out for themselves, as they pick up whatever cross they have in their own lives and follow him.

But, it might take a leap of faith...
