Faith, Hope and God

An interestin post i stumbled across left me absolutely convinced that true and undyin faith for God doesnt equate to intelligence...from Disposable Christian. To cut the chase short...here's the post he made...

"There are a few of us who have conquered sinful lust. It has been 358 days today since I last entertained a lustful thought or suffered the ill manifestations of conscious lust. One of the most offensive thoughts in relation to this battle that every Christian man fights is the notion that those who win are somehow weaker in passion or desire than those who do not. I abhor the lie that says, "I just have too much desire. It has been my biggest problem for such a long time." I despise the implication that these 'men' are 'just too great of lovers to overcome the sin'. I say their passions are misplaced and their love is wrong. I ask, does it even make sense? Would God in Jesus Christ, commanding purity, reward obedience with impotence? Would the everlasting bridegroom pair adultery toward Him with fidelity toward an earthly wife? If marriage is worship, how would activity reserved for its context be lesser in intensity in those with greater passion for God? Is sinful lust compatible with the first and great commandment-- to love The Great I AM who is Love with everything you are? I'm talking about the thoughts of Christian men in churches and small groups, "accountability groups," all over the world. Pastor Rob wasn't talking about them specifically but was speaking generally about passion when he said, "If you say your passion for God is increasing but your passion for other [sinful, sin-related] things is not decreasing, you are lying." I passionately agree."

Im sorry...but i assume this loser's intepretation of a lustful thought or suffered the ill manifestations of conscious lust would be mentally strippin off a woman's clothes? Ok if it is...this 2-eyed manisfestation of Jonathan Levinson (for Buffy fans out there) is just bout the biggest pussy since the grinnin Cheshire Cat made his appearance in Alice in Wonderland...forever capturin the kids' imagination...

But i digress...now tell me...how is a man able to go even a day without thinkin of nocturnal activities with a fantabulous woman who makes your gonads go huh? Yes your faith is strong...it's embedded in the innermost region of your unconscious beliefs...make no mistake about it...it's somethin u wake up and fall asleep to..."God watches over me when i sleep"...so yeah...i guess he must be somewhere in your Rapid Eye Movement (REM) stages...

I wonder...how is purity and chastity goin to make your life better when you have absolutely no fuckin clue on the stuff that ya missin out on? Is masturbation considered unclean? I've had a couple of male friends confessin that they've never...in their entire soddin lives...masturbated...

Riiiiight....

If God was always right and wants the best for us...why wouldnt he want us to enjoy the fruits of life? The sweet nectar of pre-marital sex...the beautiful bloomin flowers of masturbation....the picturesque view of multiple sex partners...or the crystal clear waters of polygamy? Speakin of which...if a spouse has just lost his other half...and has been monogamous and faithful his entire life...would it be considered dirty, wrong and downright sinful for him to remarry? Wouldnt deuterogamy be unclean too?

I beg to differ...but there's just too many things in life that are worth givin up for...in fairness it's for the better...God loves us...or does he?..We are reminded of the harmful repurcussions of smokin...and when we do give up smokin...we are killed by an errant driver who crashes into us...We've never cheated on our spouse and enjoyed the same sex partner in our lives...only to find the other half in bed with someone else...We've never engaged in unprotected sex...only to die of AIDS from a glob of influenza of an infected person...so tell me...how is God fair?

Perhaps there really is a reason why ive stopped goin to church on Sundays...the early mornin convenings and the public display of affection by spirited sing along sessions (Yes...im Methodist)...what does that prove? Instead of enlightenment...the days in church have brought about more disillusionment in me...for often i wonder to myself...if we really do believe in God...why do we have to bust our ass every fuckin Sunday mornin to sing some lame ass songs thought up by some 40yo-geezer who couldnt even win a spelling contest...i mean...has anyone out there seen the song lyrics? They're so Grade 12...if that geezer can think that up...i'll have won a Grammy last year...

God is in us...so why sing out loud and proclaim to the world? Shouldnt faith and emotional strength be somethin that you gently nurture individually over years of hardship and turmoil? It's not like God's gona grant us...in Singapore's case...a better standard of governin...where Democracy is actually represented...God i beseech you...let there be Capitalism in Singapore...and Rights of Speech...the First Ammendment Act's the best thing that ever happened to United States...why deprive the rest of the world with it? Do you love Americans more than us?

God...do you really love us?
