I WENT TO CHURCH ‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼‼ (NB:saying that at the top of my voice screaming at the top of my lungs actually)..Now I’m sure you’re probably wondering what the big deal is. What’s so new about going to church but trust me everything is new EVERYTHING.
I have never been one to talk openly about my religious views because I know that such is a very contentious issue. By writing this post, I do not wish to offend but merely to express my opinion
I went to church the other day or to be less ambiguous Sunday (19th-06-2011) and here’s the thing I can’t remember the last time I did that honestly speaking I simply can’t. ..Wait a minute…. I have my reasons, which I shall share in a bit. I must say the whole experience was…ummmmm…….new i think for lack of a better word.
Don’t get me wrong though I am a strong believer in religion and the role it plays in keeping our society intact, I once read that;Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, the soul of a soulless condition (no more no less)
After many years I finally mastered the confidence to go to church and I mean confidence on a very personal basis’ I have always been one to question and at times one to doubt I would not exactly call it a strength as much as it is a weakness.
The people highest up have the lowest self-esteem and The prettiest people do the ugliest things..the things we buy to cover up what’s inside cause they made us hate ourselves and love they wealth (Kanye-When it all goes down).
(On that note) I think that hypocrisy is all around us within and without us. That is in all honesty my reason for fearing or should I say refraining from the ‘religious center’. I have always been repulsed by people who take advantage of those who are ‘lower’ than they are. My question to you being” why is it that in the poorest places you have the most number of churches????”
It hurts to see all those people struggle to put food on the table, take everything they have to their ‘religious centers’ just for someone to take advantage of them EAT up their money and tell them that blessings are on the way????????????
I think that religion has been turned into a full scale commercial business I do not mind extortion of the ’rich’ and by ‘rich’ I mean all those who have obtained their money by all unnecessary means.(In fact I’m 100% behind robin hood ROB THE RICHANDGIVE TO THE POOR kind of thing)Stealing in itself is wrong but stealing from the poor is just unacceptable and unfair. The worst thing you can ever give someone is false hope which id say is equivalent to poison. You cannot stand up and teach someone something yet you do the exact opposite.
Personally I’ve always preferred to worship at my own time and in my own privacy not that I have some personal vendetta against anyone or any institution in particular not at all. It has a lot to do with what I have seen. I think we are living in a society where we are so okay with the lies and the deceit that the truth has become our greatest enemy
Religion is a sweet escape a place where we can all hide and take comfort from all our day-to-day headaches not a place where we can be robbed and lied to .I have always held such an opinion on our ‘religious center’s’ and I guess it’s wrong for me to hold all of them in that esteem because if I was on the right side doing the right thing I would not have liked someone to judge me in such a manner.
So I’m giving all my love to this world only to be told that nothings gonna change the way we live cause we can always think but never give(Jamiroquai-Virtual Insanity)
In whatever light you choose to see this. I’ve stated my point in the most honest way I know how .I am learning to embrace the concept of going to church (and yes I am not ashamed to say that I sound like a baby whose done with the crawling and is up for the walking) .I shall begin doing it more often though and that’s a promise to me.I had a wonderful time when I recently went (thanks Janet)
So Maybe there’s a God above but all I’ve ever learned from love is how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya. It’s not a cry that you hear at night it’s not somebody who’s seen the light it’s a cold and it’s a very broken HALLELUJAH‼
