I am discovering that there are real demons in this world and some of them are disguised as Christians. Some of them even have blogs. They know how to use scripture to support what they say but they also pervert scripture in the process. They have attacked me in my darkest hour and have shown a side of “Christianity” that is not of Christ. They are bloated by their self-righteous ego and pride and would rather be “right” in their own eyes than wrong in the eyes of others and they dare not even consider God’s eyes.
I would never have been able to have any kind of discourse with such a person in the earliest days of my loss but now I am stronger. I felt it was necessary to present my understanding of God after reading what he wrote. My friends who are kind and compassionate will be staggered by his very last reply to me. If you don’t read anything else, please read the kind of vitriol this man, in the name of Christ, has spewed…..in his last reply to me. Here is Harry’s (his name) thoughts on depression:
“I don’t believe in low self-esteem. I would instead say that people who cut are deceived about themselves and about their situation. If a person is depressed or feel they are worthless, it’s because they love themselves to the point that they have certain expectations out of life and if those expectations they have of themselves or of their situations are not met, they get extremely frustrated.
This extreme frustration over wanting something better that they haven’t been able to obtain leads them to think that doing harm to themselves will alleviate their frustrations or rescue them from their situation. They want to be rescued by whatever means because ultimately they love themselves and feel they shouldn’t have to suffer what they’re going through.”
I posted a comment on a blog that was tearing down people who do self-cutting. I am not a cutter but I do try to understand mental illness. He also attacked people who die by suicide and his reasoning was beyond anything I could imagine. He wrote about it in a reply to another poor soul who happened upon his blog.
The author was full of himself and of the devil. I have posted excerpts of this discourse below. The link to his blog is here if you care to read the entire post; In fairness, because of its length, I have only posted those comments between us. It begins when I correct his use of scripture..To read the initial text and replies of others go to; (if you dare) You can’t get the full impact unless you read his original blog.
