I am touching some people here, a friend of mine wrote this after
watching your "Delusional" video.
"Here's what I think. In 1994, when I was standing over a kitchen
counter looking at all the bottles of pills I was about to swallow, I
realized that there had to be a better way. I decided to try God's way
as taught by Jesus. While I can't say I'm even close to living the
life that Jesus describes, I do try. Jesus said to love others and
be ... Read Morewilling to die for them (as he loved me), take care of
those who need help, be patient, as much as possible, be at peace with
others, ask for forgiveness when you screw up, be merciful, be
forgiving, fight injustice, be humble... I'll never be able to get it
all down here, but you get the picture.
If this is a delusion, it has made my life complete and joy-filled.
While it is not a perfect life (Jesus never promised that things would
be easy if I followed him) it is immeasurably better than the life I
lived before. And if I can possibly live up to the standards that
Jesus called me to, I don't see how that can be detrimental to society."
I wrote to her that I did not see any connection between her taking
pills and God. That why didn't she just take credit herself for being
a strong woman and taking control of her life.
If you have the time, your thoughts would be appreciated, I will post
in the forum as well.
I am learning more about the bible as an Atheist than I did when I was
a Christian. :-)
