Yes i have heard of it and my life is bad karma.
They all talk about times when we wander away from god, in my opinion, god left me. He lost interest in me. Anyone here fans of Genesis? Visions of angels on the Trespass album? "god gave up this world, its people, long ago", and ..."in reverence to a god no-one can reach..."; pretty much says it all! I always felt i wasn't being heard, and this is a self fulfilling prophecy; no-one listens to me now. I think god lost interest in this world long ago and left us all to it.
I knew someone who told newbies about a book of murder, war, sex, death; the bible, but he didn't mention incest, or violence, people being taken out for wasting their "jewels", or that abraham had children to his sister! and they let children read this book. Its totally unrealistic, people who lived hundreds of years for example; i hope i'm dead before i reach 60! NO way do i want to be on this mortal coil any longer than is absolutely necessary, certainly not hundreds of years old! Imagine knowing that you could live to be 300 years; the very thought makes me feel quite sick, and downright miserable. And as for the world being made in a week!? come on!
Nah, church and religion is full of self righteous folks who believe what suits them, yes, they pick and choose and make it up as they go along! The cliques are particularly nasty, people who are so heavenly minded that they're no earthly bloody good! When i played drums in church i didn't do it for self glorification, i did it because i was asked to and because i enjoyed it, but there are people who may be excellent at leading the music group, or on a piano; they really think that they are IT! I once was ridiculed for using a cymbal, by the music leader, apparently he didn't want them used for a particular piece of music and i didn't know it; he tried to bring me down in front of all in the group. until i mentioned that his piano playing wasn't exactly top notch, as he kept playing bum notes, and any time i see him, i make a point in painfully reminding him! self righteous twat. I'd even laugh out loud no matter when in the service when he did it!
NO, i've had my fill of that, thank you very much. I didn't fit in. they probably think i'm a bad person; im no angel, i probably AM a bed person. But they aint any better! Its all crowd control.
I gave up trying to be a nice person, instead of being polite and gracious, meek and mild, i dont care if what i say offends others; because i dont believe they care with the shoe on the other foot! People dont understand if you pussyfoot around; get stuck in there, let people know how you really feel, if they cant handle it; too bad; the truth hurts.
