wolf in sheep's clothing
I've been quietly despairing of God, and sorely disillusioned with his people when the realization came to me this morning. I was driving past the old sites where our karate instuctor used to work. (now it is now a bartender school and the other is empty). This man,who pleaded guilty to repeatedly sexually molesting boys in his classes-one boy in particular (who was a friend of my daughter) for about a year. Why should i let some asshole who molested boys under the guise of being a way-cool, Christian karate instructor make me lose faith? You know what I used to think about this guy,btw? I thought he was more spiritual, or more Godly, if you will, because he always seemed so happy,together,on top of things and what the hell was the matter with me, I am struggling in my walk almost daily.. ok all that aside,
There is a cure connection in all this, which i also have to say. There is a video on youtube where oor own dear RS is interviewed for the Godlike Genius award..and somebody says that RS is evil because of what he said about God and religeon and something about a look in R's eyes.
know what i said in response to the man who spoke out his ass? RS isn't evil.
"He has been hurt by wolves in sheep's clothing," (and i didn't say the next part and wish i had)
"and God's (seeming) silence." I then quoted some lyrics off of Holy Hour to support this.
(Go see it!) When i was sadly viewing the studio spaces this morning the words i used then came back gently to me this morning: "Wolf in sheep's clothing."!!!
I would do well to not hold this jerk's actions against God, myself! E.P.was one of those dynamos who was all involved with the community-hosting free after school programs and raising money for cancer patients (he had a couple students that have cancer), every year participated in the neighborhood carnival parade (for four years our family's been going to those) this revelation of his apparent charactor has caused not only my family and I pain, but many friends and their families(some of which are in denial to this day). My daughter considered him a second father-he was the only instructor (of dozens we phoned) in San Diego who let her join his studio (she's a brain-cancer patient who has had her skull operated on twice) and he promoted her to assistant instructor. (He never touched her) Why should I let an imposter who claimed Christianity ruin my belief in Jesus? Hey, my fan-ness for the band (RS in particular) is helping sort some of this crap out (who'd have guessed?) My defense of RS came back and opened my eyes...Share
