Ego created sin in the first place, and the only way to get rid of it and to get back to where we were with our father would be to overcome our ego. In the Garden of Gethsemane Jesus overcame the ego of man for us, to cancel out our defeat with our ego in the Garden of Eden.

Ego is a bigger deal than most christian leaders teach. Heck, they rarely ever teach about it, yet it is the cause of all human issues.


-There has been several times in my life where I felt like God packed up and moved and didn't send me his new address.
I felt lower than the pit. I felt abandoned and desolate. Near death. And let's not talk about when I grow closer to God and hear from him a thousand times a day, and then all of a sudden it seems like he drops his arm that fastened me, and all of my life tumbled to the ground. I spoke to him and he was mute. Months on end I can't hear from God despite fasting and meditation. I hear very well, so when I don't hear from God I got batsh*t crazy! It really puts his necessity in my life in perspective. Now when that happens I am reminded of how often King David felt abandoned by God: "Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? … If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,' even the darkness will not be dark to you" (Psalm 139:7, 9-12).

So when I feel blind to my own life, I remind myself of my other life partner who is never asleep and has all the vision and I trust him. Again...ego related. Can't escape the ego relation no matter what.




Thank you Derri, you better preach! lol. You have a major annointing on your life.

I don't think there is anything that could turn me away from my faith. I have been thru some of the lowest lows imaginable, and I still managed to hold on to my faith. There were times when I got so caught up in living a worldly life, that I didn't give him the focus and attention he deserved, but lately I find myself thanking him in good times, and asking for guidance in bad times.

I'm still not where I should be, but he has bought me a long way.

I don't think there is.
 
People were following the "laws and ways of the Lord" way before religion period. It's how we survived.

I get what you're saying but I can't help but feel like the need to believe that all wrongs will be corrected and evil doers will be punished is what makes religion so attractive. What's not to like? Follow the basic rules of being a good and decent human being that existed way before religion and I will not just die but go to heaven and be with my family again. Sweet!


Um no. People were following the laws and ways of the Lord waaay before religion was introduced to the masses. The fact that most of them were then slaughtered for refusing to be indoctrinated with religion speaks volumes.

There's more to life than just being a "decent or good" human being. Interestingly enough, so called goodness or decency is measured according to the standards of those who are in power and don't give two sh!ts about GOD's word (Ecclesiastes 7:29). And yet the masses don't seem to have a problem with it.

I think what most people fail to realize is that not-believing, losing faith or lacking understanding is not going to stop The Most High's program from happening.  Jokes on them (Romans 3:3)

Ppl reap what they sew not just in God's day of judement. I'm not 'religious' per se, I'm not a christian, either, but sin being put in it's place does sound great to me. My sin and all sin alike.

And you can have an ego and follow your own rules and you will die, but disacknowledge your creator and you won't enter into the Kingdom of the true and living God.

Maybe because a lot of people don't understand the purpose of this life, they have a hard time wrapping their minds around the struggles of this life as well.

Although we all experience varying levels of struggle one can't be measured against another. No one can say the hungry 2 yr old who hasn't eaten anything in 2 days but sugar water in the caribbean hurts less than the child sex slave. Does that hurt God? Yes. Does he care? Absolutely. Will the evil slave master reap what he sews? Absolutely.

I feel some people can't wrap their minds around because they are thinking of God in such a microscopic way. Though God does pay attention to microscopic details, the root of the issue is the same.

Do you want God to allow choice in life? well a downside to human choice is some people suffer because of the choices someone else makes. The innocent is hurt because that other person literally can hurt them, and chose to, anddoesn't give a F.

Do you want God to rule with an Iron fist? Well there would be no man made rules, just God's law. And there would be no choice to be homosexual either. And the homosexual person (whom is still loved by God) gets no
chance to experience the gift of life.

When the kingdom of God comes to earth life will be something completely different for those who chose it, and those who suffered as a result of someone else's egotistic choice. And hell..life will be completely different for the ones with the inflated egos as well.
