When I tell I people who are christians some of my views their jaws drop to hear some of the things I might say because not only I was raised in the church but my parents had their own church. So when I say there is nothing wrong with marijuana use they don’t know how I watched my father die of cancer from day-to-day suffering from this disease that was slowly killing him and when he told me the pills the doctor prescribed for him made him more sicker I felt was there any hope for him to live. Why is it in a christian point a view this is a better way to heal yourself from something man-made that will only kill you? (I prayed to God please don’t let me die this way)
You could believe in something so much when you find out it’s not true you feel hoodwinked for example when I went to church I believed that God’s chosen ones could heal the sick because Jesus did it correct, if not why am I coming to church. About 2 years ago I started waking up feeling dizzy and tired, I felt when I woke up in the morning I didn’t get enough rest I would have to go back to bed to feel rested. After a while going back to bed wasn’t helping because no matter how much I slept I still felt tired. After being prayed for in church for healing I was still feeling the same way, I broke down one Sunday crying in the church bathroom thinking why would God want to kill me? Finally I built up enough courage to go to the hospital where the doctor diagnosis me with sleep apnea. The next sunday I went back to church and before the Pastor delivered his sermon he told his members that if you feel there is anything wrong with you health wise to go see the doctor. I thought this is what the church was for if it wasn’t a place for healing then it must be a place for entertainment, So I came to the conclusion that I will only go to churches that entertain me. (Hallelujah)
Where I’m from Brooklyn!!!! There is a Church on every corner so many of them divided but if they would come together for one common goal for example to end poverty in its own ghetto WOW!!! It can be done because the church does have power to me it just doesn’t understand how much.
