Hi to all, because I am in fact eager of reading this webpage’s post to be updated regularly.
It includes fastidious stuff.
I was reading the Venerators last night, and in the book you had said that you were driving to work thinking, ” is this it? Really? Get a job, have some good times, grow up the kids, retire and die?” you said you “Wondered in horror: This was you destiny.”
In your sermon today you said to Maximize your time here, I feel that when you serve god and others and believe with a strong faith, you can help maximize. When you just live you life for you and just “skim by” or “float along”, there is no way to maximize you life.
I grew up in a house that did not go to church but we believed in god. I was told that you don’t have to do anything but believe in god and you will go to heaven. THERE WAS NO REAL ECUCATION OF GOD FOR ME! just what was told to me to make me feel better. that no matter how I lived or what I did that I didn’t have to live for the lord, pray or read my bible and I would go to heaven? That seemed to easy! I went to church on and off with my friends and their parents. If I got in trouble for not cleaning my room or not finishing my chores that when I was going to church with my friends, my parents would tell me “YOU ARE NOT GOING TO CHURCH TODAY”. I understand that when I was younger going with my parents permission was a privilege, but to take it away like it was no big deal, showed me that I didn’t need to go to church or read my bible to go to heaven. I was living just like my parents and the rest of my family, “Meism.” our personal religion.
When I was fifteen I was staying at my brothers house whom family is Mormon. The missionaries stopped by and I became curious to what they believed and started have home learning sessions with the missionaries. After the third lesson the were down my throat to get baptized. They would call me and ask me a couple times a week ” are you ready to get baptized? we can do it tonight if you would like?”
After about a month I finally was baptized Mormon. For some reason something just didn’t feel right to me.. the first Sunday that I went to church after i was baptized, I felt that it was more of a “cult” then a church. Now that I was baptized and one of them, they were going to give me inside the cake and not just the frosting. I felt like we worshiped our president more then our god! it didn’t seem right to me. I went the next Sunday and it still didn’t feel right, now the only person that would go to church with me was my sister in-law not my brother and not their kids just my sister in-law. a woman that I had never met came up to me and said ” Its a shame that your family doesn’t go to church, and I hope that god has mercy on there souls.” I was so disappointed I had no desire to go back to the LDS church. Who or Why would someone say that to you? So I went back to living for me. I was smoking pot, drinking and omitting adultery. everyone else was doing, why shouldn’t I?
In August of 2012 I met my husband, he was living with a family that was going to church and neither of us at the time were really interested in going to church, we just wanted to live for what we wanted to do. when we were at there house we had to sit one couch cushion apart from each other, no holding hands and no kissing, if I stayed the night I slept on the couch and he slept in his room. I didn’t understand what the big deal was. Now that I have been baptized and have been seeking the lord, I understand that they were protecting us. making sure that we didn’t get hurt by getting to close, they were trying to teach us from their mistakes, but we wanted to learn on our own. I am still so sorry that I didn’t listen to them. They were there when Jason and I didn’t get along, helping us through our problems in our relationship, I want to thank you so much for you guidance and help, even if we didn’t listen all time. I look back and wish that we would of started our relationship different, not committing adultery, and caring only about us. the world is to big to be just about yourself.
We moved to California in September of 2013 and we have not gone to church since. not even opened our bible. We just liked the church that we went to, it was small and a close church, like a big family. we didn’t want to go to a church and that 7 sessions a day and we couldn’t even remember 5 peoples names. I know that is not a excuse to not go to church you go for yourself not for others. I felt empty and unhappy, I recently have been reading my bible and started the venerators, praying regularly, and tuned into the “operating deluge u-stream live” today. I already feel closer with the Lord. since I have been doing these things. I feel a joy in my heart when reading, like I lost something and found it again. I am excited to see the prayers the Lord answers and to see what journey he has planned for me.
Thanks for writing…this is a really cool outline of what has happened in your life. Stay in contact with us on the House Group. You can also have e-church with us on Sunday morning or view the service on operationdeluge.com later.
And I wonder whether Jesus would have had the same attitude had the sentence been a prison term
rather than stoning. “Men are just as unsure about the relationship thing as women,” he says.
Going back to a liar only reinforces his
sense of power and control.
I like that you are you. Plain and simple sharing the Word simply as yourself, not a regular church Pastor style, a sharing Bible studyish simplicity.
Plus, we’re family :-D
Thanks for the encouragement I appreciate that Monica
I hope im watching todays sermon trying to get on track here seems how i couldnt be there.
