I have to tell you…
I am a Bible Christian. I go to the Bible for the truth, when it comes to anything spiritual or Biblical. As much as I can anyway. I haven’t stepped foot in a church in almost three years. But I have studied! I study the Bible almost every day. I was raised Baptist…not Southern Baptist, or Independent Baptist, but Baptist. I went to a Baptist church and a Christian school through 8th grade. The school was attached to an Independent Baptist church. I didn’t join any of the clubs, like Awana’s. My sister did, but I didn’t like the way they tried to talk me into going to their church. Trying even to turn me against my parents and go to this church and not with my parents.
My problem is, I see corruption everywhere! I mean everywhere! I know all churches aren’t corrupt, but it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. The church I grew up in, taught the Bible, and if we hadn’t had a falling out with the new pastor, I’d probably still be there – or maybe not, thinking about it. (The new pastor was trying to conform more to way of the world, if I can say that, and ended up pushing all the “old-timers” out. The Baptist church is no longer, is now a community church. I might get into that at a later date.) And with the pandemic/vaccine thing going on…I’ll lean on God to take me where I need to go. I feel that He pulled me out of what could have been a dangerous situation. Many of you know, I quit my job in Oct 2019, about 4 months before the country shut down. I was so sick and stressed, that I had no option. I did what I had to do. I had been looking for a job for 4 months, give or take, with no results. The last interview I went to, I got in my car and cried, but as I drove away, I got to thinking, “Maybe I’m not supposed to find another job right now.” So, I quit. Then Corona hit. I haven’t looked back. That doesn’t mean things are easy, but with God all things are possible.
For me, following Christ/God is the only way to go. I’m not one to follow someone or do something just because, if I have questions, I start digging. I’ve always been that way. It’s been hard the last few months, year… I’ve learned and unlearned things, had my vision cleared, remembered things that had been pushed back to the farthest recesses of my brain…to say I have felt like Alice in Wonderland is an understatement! It seems like every 6 to 8 weeks or so I go through this “awakening”, and I’ve had to take a pause, to digest it. Being able to step away from the chaos of the world is a very, very good thing. I feel that I am in this place and time for a reason, everything I’ve been through has prepared me for this. I will continue to study, and grow, and learn. I have no option! You’ve noticed the changes in Holly’s World, I’m sure, but there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. When He puts something in front of me, I have to share it. Believe me, I’ve tried NOT posting what He wants, it’s all so controversial…it gets me nowhere! The frustration that sets in…
You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
“And ye shall know the truth,
and the truth shall make you free.”
I’ve learned so much in the last month or so, that the only term I feel comfortable with at the moment is “Christian”. I’m trying to wrap my mind around everything…I’m glad I am alone right now, otherwise…who knows where I’d be! When God says, “trust me”, you have no other choice but to trust Him. Who knows how long it will take me, but over the next several months I will be sharing what I have learned/read. Some of it might not sit very well or be uncomfortable, I know this. Some of it has taken time for me to digest, still trying to digest. Some of it, like Roman Catholicism, I’ve known about for some time, I just didn’t realize the depth of it. I’m not getting into it all right here, right now, but I will share. It’s too much to put into one post.
The 10 Commandments
I don’t plan on changing anything I do…the only difference will be, when I post what’s on my mind, what God is urging me to post, it will be in the evening (like this). I need the quiet time when everyone else is sleeping, to think. It may be my thoughts, or something more complex. It all depends on what is on my mind, what I’m being urged to share.
I promise, I won’t start preaching. Just sharing what I am urged to share.
So, until next time…
hope you have a great day!
thanks for stopping by!!
