Our truth sets us free. It allows us to be ok with being different, not following the crowd. You shouldn’t have to feel “normal”, or bland to fit in. Being who you are gives the world what it needs… the real you. -RealityOfAPreachersDaughter
Ironically, I’m writing this on a Sunday. In the modern day “Christian” religion, it’s known as the Sabbath.
When you’re a Christian, you’re suppose to remember to always choose the Bible first. Reading other books related to Christian history and other religious books can damage your views of “Christ” and the bible. Well at least that’s how I was taught.
When I was a little girl, I remember saying “I’m not a Christian”. I never wanted to be. I watched “Christians” struggle, judge, lose themselves, hide, manipulate, hate, distort truth and consider themselves an untouchable being.
That’s not even all… Why in the world would anyone want to be like that? I recognized that as a little girl and decided I didn’t want to be “religious” or labeled to be anything other than myself. Now I recognize that even more. I’ve allowed myself to go a little deeper in the history of Christianity and learn history of Africa. Now I’m wondering what’s going on? Things aren’t adding up. I haven’t devoted enough time researching to talk about what I’ve learned so far, but to anyone with an open mind, you’d be wondering about “Christianity” too.
As a “Preacher’s Daughter”, and growing up with strict teachings, people will say all types of things about the person I’ve become.
“She’s a backslider” -What does that mean??
“She’s running from her call”
If my mom knew what I thought, she would be horrified and probably go on a fast for my soul.
My dad would probably say since I don’t talk to him anymore I’ve turned my heart from God. There’s a word for that he’s use before and I can’t think of it. I remember! He would say I have a “reprobate mind.”
Bottom line, I hate religion. It’s because of how I was raised, but you will read about that in my book.
