The Truth

Monday, February 25, 2013

This morning, I was reading from John 8, and I read verse 32 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." I need this in my life. I was raised in a cult that twisted the Scriptures to the point that they completely changed the Gospel message and laid many commands and rules upon their followers that either do not exist in the Scriptures or do not apply to believers today. I am slowly sifting through the Scriptures to learn the truth of what they say. Although, I must admit that I am nervous about doing this because the false teachings I was taught as a child are deeply ingrained in me. I do want to know the whole truth, especially regarding the doctrine I was taught as a child. I know my parents did not deliberately steer me in the wrong direction. They are still caught up in the beliefs of the cult, although they do not follow all the extra rules that are demanded of the followers. The name of this cult is ATI led by Bill Gothard. I don't know if you have ever heard of him, but he is a very dangerous man. He has led millions astray. His cult is a world-wide homeschooling organization. Many times the kids in the program are only permitted to play or socialize with other kids in the program.

But, I definitely want to know the truth about the Scriptures and I will not rest until I have my questions answered in some way.

    Those who seek will find. Not sure where it is written now in the Bible, but there is a scripture that say: We only need the Holy Spirit, He will teach us all the things we need to know.

Good luck, and keep seeking the truth

    ISN'T IT AMAZING THE THINGS THAT WE WERE TAUGHT - AND BELIEVED - AS KIDS CAN BE SO TOTALLY WRONG OR MISINTERPRETED? I WAS 49 YEARS OLD BEFORE I REALLY CAME TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST AS MY LORD AND SAVIOR. YET I WENT TO PAROCHIAL SCHOOL ALL THE WAY THROUGH COLLEGE!
