Working on Personal and Spiritual Growth

For months, I have sat back and observed myself struggling with my faith and in what direction it is supposed to be leading me. It began when I found out that Jesus, whom I have learned to love, idolize and assumeD to be God, was merely the re-creation of Horus, son of Isis and Osirus. I have been told repeatedly that it should not affect my view of God but I can’t wrap my head around it yet. I BELIEVE that God is still God and that, being my Creator, is the only one to be worshiped, but let’s face it, like so many raised in the church, I learned to worship Jesus. It’d be so much easier had I been raised with virtually no background and were, more or less, a blank slate!

For decades, I’ve been taught that Jesus was equal with God and was, in fact, God himself. How’s that work? Are you and YOUR father the same person? How can Jesus (if indeed he even existed) be both God’s “only begotten” AND “equal”? Did God come up with this first and then change and fashion his creation inTO a completely different manner than he, himself, came from? Are you both your father’s “begotten” and simultaneously “equal” with him or do you have to grow a bit and work on catching up to your father? 

Here’s why the Osirus/Isis/Horus issue makes sense to me: because it is relatable. Because Isis literally went to the ends of the earth to find her mate and caused a love child to be created between them even AFTER his death (seems to be a very very ancient precursor of artifical insemination, don’t you think?) Who doesn’t like a good romance??!There are enough questions that arise (for me, anyway) in proportion to the how’s/why’s and wherefore’s in relation to this whole issue for it to bear more thorough research to be a necessity. The subject of God as taught by Christians is neatly wrapped up and contained in a predicatable, neat little package complete with Jesus as the bow. There are few questions aside from which new rule and regulation we can throw before our fellow believers cleverly wrapped up in the pursuit of conversion, i.e. The Great Commission. The vast majority of Chrstians are completely ignorant of the fact that we do this, so entrenched in habit has it become. 

And to those who are Christians, I am not disregarding what you believe; if it’s what keeps you grounded and acting right, keep at it, just don’t be disrespectful towards what I’m saying if you percieve that my actions and behaviour and spirit are right in line with what God stands for. Despite my belief that the book known to millions is full of stories being passed off as history rather than metaphore, I don’t discount everything in it, either. Just being PEOPLE tells us how to live in relative harmony with those around us. Being kind to your neighbor, or to strangers when you could choose to react a different way, are both Biblical and PRACTICALprincipals to live by and can lead to very positive relationships. The point is that these attitude norms are for us as people, not per race, per difference but extends to the core of us, not just relearned behavior.

I know that I am in for a long struggle till I’m at a place in my life where disbelief is no longer an issue and acceptance – towards God, myself and my past – is how I wake up every day seeing and living. Right now, life is a series of opportunities, good and bad, and reprucussions (equally good and bad). One day after another until the end of your life. Probably 90% of the world is unaware of this because life for humans is like an ant farm: we get up, do what we do, see who we see, all without realizing WHY we’re doing it all. Is it just surface selfishness or is there a deeper reason for our behavior and choices? A few of us are critically aware that our choices and behaviors are part of a puzzle that is “Who am I”, a question I believe controls the entirety of our  lives. I want to be active in my life. Although forces and factors outside of my life control the direction it takes, I want to be as involved as I can be. Having been created with the ability to speak and write, I have a certain amount of responsibility to use it as much as I can. 

I no longer remember my original reason for writing this blog. I had edibles and I am tore up from the floor up, and am having a damn near AWESOME experiment. My thoughts are a jumbled mass of snippits vibing for control for use and domination. Wow, this is great! I doubt many read this. People are lazy and don’t want to invest so much of their time into spending the time to read when there are so many other ways. But if you do, I thank you so much for taking the time. Time and money are two things we never seem to have enough of.

Just Because You Can – Doesn’t Mean You Should

Malcolm As I write this, and largely WHY I’m writing this concerns Freddie Gray, the young man from Baltimore who was killed while in police custody. Police brutality is out of control and so are the reactions taking place. 

The United States Flag Allow me make a statement and then try to put something into prospective: just because a person is allowed to do something – doesn’t mean they should do it. Beyond that, let me say this: under no circumstances do I condone racism. It’s ugly, stupid and makes zero sense. I also do not condone police brutality. The police are supposed to be above racism, coersion and reproach but we’re inclined to forget that they are people, human and as subject to temptation, failure and success as we are, ourselves.

world-peace-debi-hammondI believe in peace. I’m also cognizant that peace is not always an option. In this case, by peace, I mean war versus peace – not inner peace which you can work to have whether the social/economic climate is peaceful or in upheaval as it is so heavily right now. 

10553821_10152163098551256_8278471907802352853_o Look, I don’t pretend to understand why people think the answer to events like the ones ending in the deaths of Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, and other’s who’ve suffered similar fates, at the hands of the police, is to go out and tear down their city. To not only destroy THEIR neighborhoods (as well as those around them – does anyone even care?) but those of other places as well. This isn’t about justice – justice would be holding those responsible accountable; what it IS about is people using senseless death as a means to anarchy.  

crack-cocaine-644x300 While we’re on the subject of taking care of our cit(ies), here’s a question: why can’t people put as much effort into cleaning up their neighborhoods as they do tearing it down when OTHERS mess it up? Why can’t we see what’s going so wrong and take appropriate steps to stop the violence, the anger, the hypocrisy (which is what this boils down to). These cities have been set on fire, vandalized and spoiled because of ONE individual – thousands become addicted to alcohol, heroin, cocaine, crack, you-name-it – and no one says anything. There’s no sense in hating the police. There’s no sense in tearing down the president, the other black leaders who really ARE trying to help (like the mayor of Boston who’s trying to bring her city under control). There’s no question that there are people who claim to represent, people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson who’s primary concerns are their own wallets and having their faces plastered on the front page, who help no one. 

images We need to come together as one people, united in love for community country, God, whatever. I know the odds are against me and it likely won’t happen but hey, a girl can dream, right? Stop tearing down the city you choose – choose life over death, will you?

Come to Peace Now; Fewer Regrets Later

ap_ap-photo1501-640x436 We are in the last days. I’m fully convinced of that.  Anyone paying attention to the goings-on here in the United States as well as the rest of the world will likely consede that things are declining quickly. Earthquakes, volcanoes, rioting and looting because of the still-relevant racial issues going on all over the country (likely the world but trying to keep this in “my own backyard”) are once more coming to a head.

sn401c_sg_0010b Whether things end like they’re described in the Bible or another way, the decline of society and civilization (or should I say UNcivilization) has progressed to a place where it would take a miracle to return to normal, assuming “normal” was ever anything other than a term used to keep people in their place.

riot42 This is not to say that I believe in anarchy because I certainly don’t. On the contrary, I would rather we sat down and held actual communication over a giant bowl of good herb. tumblr_inline_mlbqz7nWWu1qz4rgp

stock-photo-muslim-protest-and-protestors-with-picket-signs-1041110  I believe the government has no right to tell me what to do when that law violates what I believe to be the law of God, or at the very least, the BLESSING of God. WP_20150312_027 These days, that line has been monumentally blurred, maybe even obliterated, because the God that I believe in is apparently a different God than much of the world believes in, if they believe in one at all. Does this make me better than them? Hell no, of course not! It just makes me who I am and life experiences have helped shape me into the person I am.

right-way-wrong-way1 Nowadays, morality is what man says it is; what society dictates – God’s definition, to most people, is completely moot because man’s desire to have their own way supercedes what he wants and says and even more, no one is qualified to speak for a God who’s been around since the beginning, I don’t care what kind of degree some man hands you or how many hours you study. I’ve never studies Hebrew or Greek but I can tell you that I imagine that the more you study about God the LESS you know.

4219b439833fc71ca821413e836c6847 All of that is not true of myself – I’m well aware I am not God, nor do I want to be – and I have no problem with God telling me what to do because he’s been around forever and I have not. The most recent issue(s) today are the gay agenda and the race-related police killings leading to all kinds of anger and hatred. Both have been thrown into everything. Nothing is sacred or pure anymore, especially not love. What you do with your time and in your bedroom is your business but when you start messing with me and impeding on my right to believe and saying nasty crap to me, I will say something whether it’s taboo or not. Isn’t it funny how one-sided tolerance is? I’ve been tripping on that for quite some time now.

Hands on a globe --- Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis As I stated earlier in another forum, I will add here, because it’s totally relevant to this blog: “There’s no hope left for America beyond the individuals who still love God and their fellow man. The best we can hope for anymore is to teach our children right from wrong, teach them to stand on their own two feet and treat their neighbors with respect and in the end, trust that we taught them enough.”

images Come to peace now. I am talking about inner peace; outter peace is temporary at best. If you come to peace now, you will have fewer regrets later because, in case you’ve missed it, bad things tend to accumulate (like a snowball going downhill) and you’re (and  I’m) going to need to be spiritually fortified in order to make it through. Choose your friends wisely- you’re going to need ALLIES in the days and months and possibly years to come.

God Speed. Go in Peace.

It’s Simply Complicated

imagesThe further we progress in life, the more we divagate as people. Technologically, we keep progressing forward, we’re very good at doing these kinds of things. As people, for the most part, we’re abject failures. All too often, we can live next door to someone for decades with neither party being the wiser. A natural disaster, an apartment fire, or something equally negative is about the only thing that might happen, alerting you to the fact that you even HAVE neighbors, it seems like.

10553821_10152163098551256_8278471907802352853_oPersonally, I’m very much a people-person. My unrealistic side believes there’s hope for the devil; my practical side sees him as a necessary evil and my realistic side sees him as a major hindrance to spiritual growth. I appreciate technology and am grateful it exists (hence this blog Wink) but I ask myself whether or not I’d be able or ready to progress forward if it all crashed today, being brutally honest with myself. It’s a fair-and imperative-question to ask: who would thrive and be able to continue providing for their family if we had to return to the basics -and had no real, working concept of what that entails?

srvrWe have grown so used to watching shows like Survivor, Alaskan surviving programs and the like that we swear we’d know how to function but when the rubber meets the road, would we be really be able to make it post-apocolypse (so to speak)? I seriously doubt it, frankly. The predominant reason we would crash and burn is because we tend to forget these programs are at least mostly scripted whereas our involvement in a post apocolyptic would be entirely non-voluntary, not to mention a very rude awakening. For those of us who have lived pre-internet and remember when we used to walk and run and bend and stoop to do chores, we might have a chance but for this current and future generations, survival would be a very harsh reality.

images (1)We need to come back to where we could survive without technology. There are so many movies, television shows and documentaries surrounding this issue but to actually make it, we’d have to develop a little thing I call EXPERIENCE and that involves getting personally involved – with ourselves and with each other.

Cannabis for Everyone

WP_20141020_13_36_57_Pro I can’t say this any plainer: cannabis needs to be rescheduled and reclassified from the top down. That means the White House down to the states down to the cities with uniformity all around.

545768_2970283702710_347753740_nI have been on a crusade for a decade to legalize. At the beginning, I confess, it was only because my husband had introduced me to this amazing plant and through usage of it, I learned the health (and psychological) benefits of it.

bullyCapitalism is a two headed dragon. On one hand, we can make money if we know the right people and have a head for numbers (i.e.fiscal genius). On the other hand, for those who have neither, we’re pretty much screwed. I didn’t set up the system and I think the system sucks. People should be on an even plain, especially when they’re willing to work for their food and shelter (the only true necessities we have). There’s nothing inherently wrong with making a profit, until making the profit becomes the end goal and one’s fellow man is left bleeding in the moonlight with his “friends” stepping over and on top of him as he lays there.

The Burning BushCannabis is a gift of God the Creator. Some believe in Him, others don’t, but that’s irrelevant. It’s a wonderful plant with a shitload of benefits. Benefits to cure cancer, benefits to help children, benefits to help thousands of diseases and ailments, including the soldiers we have returning from war with PTSD and missing and broken limbs – at a fraction of the cost of other medications where it costs $.50 a pill while they charge patients $500 a bottle. What kind of bullshit is this and why the hell is it allowed and no one says shit? No one wants to take a stance. No one want to be that person that others look at and call “Socialist” and all kinds of other names that people come up with to coerce someone into hanging out with the “popular kids”. Names that they call President Obama, the only person since Jimmy Carter trying to do any thing for us little people and they bastardize him for it! We talk out both sides of our mouths, of course, because all the time we’re trying to be all independent, we’re simultaneously trying to be like the others around us (Keeping up with the Joneses).

Loving TouchSometimes I feel like the only person on earth who gives a crap about things other than what people wear, or makeup or advancing “women’s rights” and all the other b.s. that makes up politics today is me and my husband. There may be one or two others that I know that care about other people (and caring about other people is the only reality that matters) but they are getting to be fewer and fewer.

world-peace-debi-hammondCannabis can hypothetically bring the world to peace. Although I don’t believe that there will ever be world peace in the sense that is commonly known (people are selfish by nature and must learn otherwise), I do believe that the cannabis lovers of the world can be at peace with one another if they stop trying to bully others into compliance just to further their agenda. People should be able to go to work, do their jobs and then go home and smoke their flipping brains out if they want to. They should be able to do so with he blessing of their primary care provider. They should be able to ingest it, put it in a bong, cook it in food. It’s an herb, people. They should be able to grow it at home or go to the store and get it without extortionary prices instead of hiding behind children (oh, but they’ll turn a blind eye to them huffing paint and glue with that It’s so dangerous for the kids rhetoric).

545768_2970283702710_347753740_nLegalize cannabis. Make our spokespeople listen to us. Remember that  the House & Senate are there, as well as the President and all elected officials of each city, state and county are there for US not the other way around. If you want something, fight for it! Of course, the only way for that to happen is for everyone to get in the same boat, on the same page; without that happening, not a damn thing will change.

Thank you for giving me a chance to stand on my soap box for a minute. soapbox (1)

Cannabis for Everyone

Only Rescheduling Will Do

150_740625-0 For weeks, I have been thinking about something: legalization is all well and good and I’m delighted to see so many states legalizing for medical reasons. This year celebrates at least 4 states that have legalized for recreational use but that privilege comes at a cost – and with strings attached. In Colorado, Denver has so many recreational shops they have an area they termed “the Green Mile” (Clever, no?) but in Colorado Springs, just an hour or two south of Denver, no recreational shops at all. Why? Because even though the PEOPLE said, “Hell yeah” to legalization, the CITY said, “Fuck no” to recreational shops. Fair? Of course not but anyone who’s watched the PTB’s long enough knows that it doesn’t matter what the people want if those (with the money and influence) don’t want it. And they didn’t want cannabis – didn’t want anyone getting in the way of the yard they guard. Can’t be having the little guy making a buck or having their dreams fulfilled – that’d just be crazy!

In addition to this, it’s almost impossible to get hired at a Dispensary or in the marijuana business at all without having to travel the lengths and breadth of the earth with lashings aplenty. Nor can we get a job at anywhere else without having to cheat our way to it (faking clean urine, whatever, EVEN AS A PATIENT) or go unemployed. It’s all bullshit. Finding a position in one’s chosen field should NOT be this difficult!

With this in mind, I have come to this conclusion: legalization is awesome but not good enough. Even though Congress did make it so that the Federal Government can’t mess with the states any more that legalize for medical purposes (a redundancy if I ever heard one as cannabis is medicinal by nature), that doesn’t protect the people at all. Case in point? The same time they HID IN THE BUDGET that the Federal Government can’t mess with the states, they also took the opportunity to tell Washington D.C. to go fuck themselves by disallowing recreational use when the people (with something like 70% in favor) had just finished legalizing it. Yes, there’s some mealy-mouthed crap going on with the new Attorney General trying to talk out both sides of his mouth so at this moment, all he manages to say is that the people can’t do what they want to do – but the bill they passed isn’t irrelevant either. What the hell does that even mean? We need Cannabis lawyers to take on all the stories that come forward; dumb it down for us who don’t speak legalese.

Listen up. Only one thing will help our cause. Reschedule. Period. Nothing else will do. We have to legalize/reclassify it FEDERALLY because the states (who bitch about too much government) will fold like cheap suits if the Federal Government backs off and reclassifies what everyone knows to be true – cannabis is amazing shit. Doing so will take away the excuses that the states tote now – it’s still Federally illegal – and will (I hope) allow for the full potential of the cannabis plant to be utilized.

The plants save children (our future) and our parents and relationships (peace, heals cancer & illnesses galore – thus, our present). Please stand up and defend what’s right. The old adage “The squeaky wheel gets the grease” is so true! squeeeeak, squeeeeak, squeeeeak!! .

If you don’t step up; won’t nothing happen. If you’re scared to step forward, remember that this is a plant that can HELP everyone, so unless you don’t have a crap about anyone else, this can only help YOU/ME.

El vivir una doble vida

Ok, lo he tenido! Durante meses he estado viviendo una doble vida, por lo que, irónicamente, no ofender a nadie o, más espiritual dijo, “poner tropiezo ante los no iniciados”.

He estado pensando en escribir esto por un largo tiempo … entonces mi marido me acercó y me dijo que acababa de ser mencionado en la radio que la razón de que la marihuana pasó en Colorado fue porque no suficientes cristianos se presentaron en los lugares de votación y eso es por lo que he pasado.

Perdonen la expresión, pero ¿quién diablos es usted? Por lo tanto, porque fumo una planta que Dios nos dio, no sólo como un ingrediente en el aceite santo mencionado específicamente en el Éxodo como el vídeo de arriba explica sino como una hierba para ayudar a conectarnos directamente con nuestro Dios, ya que ayuda distracción enfoque (directamente de cannabis plantas), no puede ser un cristiano?

Soy un hijo de Dios. Yo lo amo con todo mi corazón y mi alma y me volvería a dar mi vida por él. Yo también fuman hierba, tan a menudo como sea posible. Yo no me avergüenzo de ello … así que ¿por qué estoy siendo forzado a vivir una vida de separación? Dos cuentas de Twitter, dos cuentas de Prensa palabra, dos Linked In cuentas. Es una locura. Claro, quiero conseguir un trabajo de un día y de acuerdo con la ley, especialmente la ley federal, arriesgo mi carrera entera en una prueba de orina por fumar una planta que, con toda franqueza, me recibe a través de estos largos días de soledad y desamparo. Por lo tanto, puedo dejar de fumar en la remota posibilidad de que no encuentro trabajo y permitir que el trastorno de estrés postraumático que mantengo a raya con esta hierba magnífico para hacerse cargo de mi vida … O puedo evitar el consumo de tabaco y confiar en el Dios y Creador, que me hizo que me guíe y me proteja, posiblemente me pone en alguna parte (¡oh!), donde se puede fumar y trabajo en completa armonía y mantener este tema molesto a raya la depresión? Mira, yo solía estar en la medicación (Zoloft) para el trastorno de estrés postraumático después de descubrir que había después de una estancia de tres días en una habitación “goma” después casi me lanza por la ventana del segundo piso, pero la solución para morder a mí mismo (con tanta fuerza que casi nos llevó al borde de mi mano). Yo había estado haciendo durante años … ¿quién sabía que era anormal? De todos modos, mi consejero me puso en él, había una sesión tras otra conmigo (donde nada mejoró y la medicación me había dando vueltas todo el día temblando como una víctima de Parkinson y trismo casi constante de los dientes, la mandíbula, ya sea en la posición de bloqueo o charlando sin parar. La gente siempre me pregunta si me estaba congelando, y yo no lo era. Es por eso que yo se lo quitó y aprendió a hacer frente, hasta que descubrí una planta maravillosa que fue creado por Dios, tenía propiedades curativas maravillosas y no hay efectos secundarios en absoluto!

Es necesario comprender, yo crecí en la iglesia, concretamente en la Iglesia Protestante Reformada, y en la secundaria yo sabía que había algo mal con … algo. En ese momento yo pensaba que era específicamente esta denominación (Soy mucho más maduro en Cristo ahora, así que sé lo que el problema era y sigue siendo). No era, pero no fue hasta que conocí al hombre que yo estoy casada ahora, que he aprendido a entender el punto en el tiempo en una mejor luz. Aprendí mi catecismo, memoricé lo que pareció millones (y millones) de los versos en el momento en que me gradué, incluso se convirtió en miembro de la iglesia en Edgerton, MN. Siempre me pregunté qué le pasaba a mí en esos días … Yo sabía que tenía una conciencia muy sensible y entendido nunca, que no me sentía tan indigno, ¿por qué exactamente eso le molestaba mi conciencia que tenía una conciencia sensible. Cuestiones de peso … sin respuesta que podría llevarlos ante la iglesia a la que ahora era un miembro en por qué me sentía tanta necesidad de una correcta relación con Dios, de tener miedo de él había una norma, pero se sentía mal. Esto no era “el temor del Señor” … este era “el temor del Señor”, y antes de que nadie me enseñó, yo sabía la diferencia.
Después de eso, cada iglesia que se convirtió en miembro de me trajo un poco más cerca del final el maestro fuera de Dios mismo, y que era (ser) el hombre que se casó, Rafael Hameed. Mira, yo lo vi sanar, él me sanó en numerosas ocasiones. Jugó un papel decisivo porque fue practicado y experimentado, y porque me encantó. Athma. Un tobillo roto. Un espíritu quebrantado provocada por una vida de malas decisiones, el rechazo, la pérdida y el dolor. Me vio-todo de mí, incluso las partes que no quería que viera, y me mostró que Dios no le da un tirón lo que parezco, cuánto pesa, cuánto me gustan los hot dogs o lo que sea … Raphael , muy parecido a Dios, amado ME-obesidad, los malos hábitos, la terquedad y casi me amaba demasiado como para permitir que me quede en esa forma de pensar … que ya era hora de ser libre, libre para estudiar las Escrituras, para ampliar mi mente al hecho de que Dios no puede ser puesto en una caja. No puede ser capturado en 5 o 6 versículos de la Biblia o historias contadas a la muerte y que no tiene poder alguno. Rafael me mostró quién soy en Dios, en Cristo. Predica a mí sin parar, y me alegro de que lo hace-porque aprendí hace mucho tiempo que todo lo que sale de su boca, en su mayor parte, va a suceder; puede llevar al banco.

Durante mucho tiempo, me he quejado de la iglesia, siempre se pregunta por qué los demás no podían ver lo que veo cuando miro a la iglesia y lo que ha permitido a sí misma para convertirse en la puta-gobierno. El segundo de la iglesia por primera vez en la cama con el gobierno, lo que permite exenciones fiscales y todo eso, se abrió una caja de Pandora que no tiene y nunca se establecerá derecho, sobre todo porque es muy común hecho por ahora que dudo muchísimo personas incluso lo ven como anormal, y mucho menos MAL COMO DOS ZAPATOS DE IZQUIERDA.
Aun cuando este país fue fundado originalmente en “principios cristianos” ya no es … una nación cristiana. En los corazones y las mentes de muchos, es probable que todavía no es más que en un país donde se acepta el matrimonio entre homosexuales, el aborto, y todas las demás cuestiones que tienen prioridad en cada carrera política, ¿puede alguien negar realmente que este mundo es Caesars? Esto no quiere decir que el matrimonio gay debería ser prohibido, y no debe, porque este mundo secular conforma reglas seculares y las razones de ser ilegal en algunos estados tienen menos que ver con el “cristiano” que con la “política”. Lo mismo ocurre con el aborto, a pesar de mis opiniones personales. No estoy de acuerdo con el 96% de los “Derechos de las Mujeres” movimiento aunque periódicamente me beneficio … en su mayor parte, fue un desastre tanto en la iglesia como en el hogar.
¿Sabes lo que Jesús dijo … “Dad al César lo que es del César, ya Dios lo que es de Dios.” Eso no sólo se refiere a los impuestos y diezmos, aunque eso es lo que se predica. Se refiere a todo … los aspectos materialistas de este mundo … eso es todo cosas de César. Eso no quiere decir que no se puede ser cristiano y tener “cosas” … ciertamente posible. Pero las cosas que César tiene? Eso es todo de Dios: el material que la mía y perforar para hacer los productos que el hombre vende, los árboles que se talan para la extinción de los bosques después de bosque cuando CÁÑAMO podría ser utilizado (y es ilegal!), La sobre-fishomg que traen tantas personas puestos de trabajo. Todo lo que se hace es de Dios.
He dicho todo esto para decir esto: la Iglesia tiene verdaderos problemas para hacer frente, empezando por la limpieza de la parte interior de su propia taza y luego hacer frente a las luchas internas denominacional. Hay un montón de cristianos que hay que recoger la tubería y poner hierba con olor dulce en ella y fumar una planta maravillosa. Hay quienes tienen el talento para hacer picadillo de aceite y un amor por la gente en sus corazones, haciendo exactamente lo que Jesús pasó su ministerio haciendo-ministrar a los perdidos, los rotos, los moribundos, los muertos. Entonces, ¿quién eres tú para apuntar el dedo y decir, porque él / ella no baja el nombre, no son salvos? En primer lugar, no es hasta usted para decidir-que ‘s entre él / ella y el Señor. En segundo lugar, si usted va a tener nada que ver con dicha persona, Dios lo pondrá o ella directamente en su camino. De lo contrario, le deje solo. Como Dios le dijo a Samuel hace mucho tiempo, “el hombre mira lo exterior, pero Dios mira el corazón”.
No me estoy escondiendo más. No tengo ninguna razón para avergonzarse de la vida que llevo … las circunstancias en que me encuentro están más allá de mi control-nunca estuvieron en mi control y no un producto de mis errores como era mi vida hace mucho tiempo, antes de mi aparición en una mariposa de la crisálida. El gobierno federal tiene jurisdicción sobre mi ser físico, pero mi espíritu está más allá de su control. Yo pago impuestos porque Dios quiere que honrar el estado en que me ha puesto y yo lo hago como un signo de mi fidelidad a Dios. El motivo es correcto, por lo tanto, la acción es correcta. Fumo hierba porque es mi sacramento de la elección. Al igual que las iglesias tienen comunión, yo también Al final, voy a comparecer ante el juez y, si es posible, voy a tener un plato de banda para la cabeza para compartir con mi Señor!
