26. My prayer: Lord Save Us From Your Followers.
Thing is ...they really aren't following the Lord ...they are following the twisted understanding perpetuated by these wolf preachers who only want the power over people ...along with their money. No where in the new testament do you find anyone using fear as a tactic to entice conversion. The conflict of "you are going to burn in hell forever if you don't believe in the God who loves you" will never be resolved in the minds of those who follow the preachers/ministers who perpetuate such utter confusion and train others to accept the same. The conflict stems somewhat from the mixing of the old and new covenants. The old was doomed to fail the the understanding of it should never be mixed with the new deal or covenant. You can't put new wine in old wine skins.

I wish people could understand that being saved does not mean that a person will be without faults or sin. It only means that the person has accepted and believes that they are forgiven for everything in the past present and future. It means that a person is no longer under the curse of death for the sin nature that has been past on to them from no fault of their own. The bible says God is a just God and that means that He will not condemn anyone for what is not their fault. You may recall that according to the bible God created Lucifer ...His most powerful supreme created being. Do you really think that pitted up against said being and failing to stay sinless that a loving God would burn anyone forever in hell?

The event the op describes is spiritual abuse and those that go under that are victims and will pay for that twisted understanding for a long time and may never break away from it unless they take it upon themselves to study diligently and stay away from church and sincerely trust God to give them the right understanding. Of course there will be much more than that but it is the best start one can have to a proper understanding. Church doctrines are divisional ...they all (churches) claim they have the true understanding ...and none of them do. They only have enough of it to keep a person poisoned with all the confusion. The first lie is "you are save as you are" and then you better change or you are going to burn in hell ...again! Should you ever enter a church ...beware of these wolves and their lies! They are the real enemies of God!

My response here is because I hate it that this happens to people and I hate that these men do this to people who sincerely desire to have a relationship with God. In a way they are being raped. I do believe God and I will always believe God and I trust Him and I am sure of my post physical death destiny. That does not mean I am "not" an asshole sometimes. I'd rather not have faults but I am "not" going to give up because I can't get rid of them. I know my destiny does not depend on my getting rid of my faults.

Don't ever think that a person does not really and sincerely believe in God because they still sin. Even George Bush may really believe ...and I hate it that he has taken a big part in immersing believers in the shame by association. Evangelicals suck ...big time! For this and many other examples and reasons that I know of I say "Lord Save Us From Your Followers".

BTW: I think "Lord Save Us From Your Followers" is a documentary. I haven't seen it yet but I can guess what it is about.
