Religion.

People don’t really understand when I say I’m a CHRISTIAN, that doesn’t automatically means that I’m a Roman Catholic. They’re different. In fact, it’s the complete opposite of my religion.
Not really accurate, but from what I see, there are 2 kinds of CHRISTIANS: The Sunday-goers and the Sabbath-keepers. Again, Sabbath isn’t just a day that you go to church, it’s the last day of the week, a day that you offer yourself to Christ, hence it’s a Holy day. Saturday.
And sometimes, I don’t get how people judge me so easily when I tell them I go to church on saturday not sunday. And that I can’t eat certain food (mainly pig meat and seafood) Like, don’t we have that “freedom of religion” ? Some also questions my religion and insists that I’m a part of a cult or something because they’ve never heard of my religion before. Even though, let’s just say you’re joking around, it’s still not respectful to make fun of someone else’s religion.
This is what I believe in. This is what I WANT to believe. And this is what I believe to be true. You’ll have your beliefs and I’ll have mine. I won’t question yours, and I hope you’ll do the same. I am an Adventist. Seventh Day Adventist. We are Sabbath-keepers.

I am A Seventh-Day Adventist.

There are a list full of things we can’t do. Things that we want to do, but can’t because it goes against God’s will. So we either have to choose, the world or God. What could be a harmless decision is actually a big one, that does effect you  later on. 

It’s Hard to be a SDA. I can’t lie. And some may say, being in a religion should NEVER be hard. But look at it this way, God never said It would be easy. To me getting close to God is the HARDEST THING TO DO, if you aren’t locked in a BOX. Because EVERYTHING is temptation and temptation is SIN. 

I love my religion. I honestly do. I know that this is what I think is right, not because I WAS RAISED in it, but because it was PROVEN to me as to why I should be apart of this religion. 

This is LIFE to me. The Parties, the movies, the piercing and tattoos mean nothing to me, if I can’t fill that hole in my heart. And that hole can only be filled with Gods love. 

Happy Sabbath. Good Night :D

Happy Sabbath (James 1:5-7)

Happy Sabbath
“If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking. But when you ask for something, you must have faith and not doubt. Anyone who doubts is like an ocean wave tossed around in a storm. If you are that kind of person, you can’t make up your mind, and you surely can’t be trusted. So don’t expect the Lord to give you anything at all.”

fact #1

I’m a proud Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA for short) and I am a very religious and spiritual person.

This spiritual journey, like many people describe their own, is a roller-coaster for me. I’m on the low part at the moment, a sort of… spiritual funk you could say. But it’s just part of the ride of knowing Jesus, His Father, and the Ghost. I’m taking it all as it comes, with fervent prayer and a positive outlook on life.

Headship in the SDA church

I was raised in the great and powerful and most accurate of all, SDA church.

I’m no longer a Christian. But I’m closely impacted by the goings on in that church, and I imagine many conservative churches…because a woman very close to me is a pastor for this church.

However let me be clear, this poem is mine. I’m fully responsible for every word. So what I say and express in this poem is solely my opinions and expression, not that of anyone else in or outside of the church.

Now before your read this poem, here’s the lead in.

The SDA “world church”, the highest part of the corporation, voted on women’s ordination. In the year of our lord 2015, the vote fell to the no and results in a decision to not ordain women who have felt ordained by God to enter ministry. The vote was placed by a couple thousand delegates from around the world and from the smaller organizational units in the church, regional units. Out of these 2200 delegates who are supposedly representative of the world church populous, 13% are women, 40% are under age 40.

Nearly 1000 votes yes, to allow individual regions to make their own decisions on ordination of women. 1300 roughly, voted no. Meaning women are not being granted equal rights with male pastors. Basically if you weren’t born with a penis the SDA church has ruled that you cannot be ordained.

The world church “president” is Ted Wilson, a strange and very suspicious character with extreme right wing perceptions and an even stranger obsession with this issue of women in ministry and an almost vendetta and agenda about it.

Okay, enough lead in, here’s the poem I wrote today:

Title: “mommy, when I grow up I want to start churches that tell people about gods love"

~~~~~~~~~

You argue
“Headship”
All I know is that’s not the type of ship I want to be sailing with,

Like a vile brood of pirates, insisting the winches stay out of the seamen business

All this talk of heads and semen

Seems to really excite many of self proclaimed “gods men”

Seems to end in sword fights I don’t want to be caught in, claiming your sword is the word, but I’m sorry I can see your dick drawn thick

I just don’t think the bible was referencing your actual penis head when it said
Conversations about the home or the church.

It did say Christ is the head, so what does that make you, but a dick instead?

Why are you being such fucking dicks?

Trying to fight a misogynist’s dream war?
The kind where you get to use metal-less swords attempting to cry “unity is truth”

You say it right but mean it wrong.

You’re making a mockery of sacred text
Like I’m making a mockery of you and your false prophetic self-pleasuring messy fest

The mess you leave, like nasty hotel semen soaked sheets,
A presupposed interpretation and selective assimilation in your group masturbation

Like a theological pre-ejaculation

So, to this “headship” throng, the dick heads who trample on
Most precious waters
Looting and robbing and raping and burning,
Leaving the ruble you hope will prompt gods soon return,
In your cocky wake
With your obedient winches to help take out
Any woman who might choose to have a brain
Their own brain, in their own head, the correct head up top,
Not making decisions based on a sexual head instead
To you mother fucking pirates on a glorious voyage not chartered far off course from that of the white supremacist and the southern biggots and the kkk who came came came from a biblical right wing affiliation…
You who only take and claim stake to lands and words and texts and wombs you don’t own.
I say,
This is my day to join the headless
To make a greater truth known
Than your penis heads will ever hope to pillage or plow or know
That we were all made and formed
By a woman and a man
By a combination
To become equal and just
To be completed by two
By equality, that strangely forgotten truth

What fucking right do you hold to deny
That we all, are just as important, the hung and the small, the ones with no penis at all
Or what if a man were dickless
Or a woman grew balls?

And to your great and godly leader, Ted Wilson, would you show us yours please?
We may need to revote if we see nothing but a breeze
Cuz by my calculations his penis may be 3 sizes too small
To warrant his headship, captain ‘or all
Or must the church ask each woman and man
To provide absolute proof
of the state of their Genitals,
Before it deny or grant
Or label them Gentiles

Sad as it is the church would be the ones
To obtuse such a thing
As a fucking penis to determine some lame highly guarded perception of ordaining

This sort of malarkey, this injustice would warrant a protest within
The much more reasonable “world” where apparently everyone is sinning
You know the one
That place we are told is cruel and heartless
Well one things for sure
This heartless world, like me
Is ever on the side of the headless
And we appropriately shame the headship
For the evil hardship they create
For the blatant misuse of spirituality

In the midst of
What I always thought, and the world agrees with me, is,
A beautiful, colorful, open, welcoming united sea.

Man’s advantages for obtaining a knowledge of the truth, however great these may be, will prove of no benefit to him unless the heart is open to receive the truth, and there is a conscientious surrender of every habit and practice that is opposed to its principles.
