Were we wrong to reject Christianity?


By Frankie Trice ~

Have you ever pondered the idea that perhaps you were wrong to reject Christianity. We really have to honestly ponder the question if we are to be fair to ourselves and so that we don'tdo the same thing we did in Christianity.

I used to be a Christian, but I found out in reading Adult Children of Alcoholics that my role in the alcoholic family will dissociate from the family and go heavily into drugs or religion.

I went into religion, joined the end-time cult, and moved 5000 miles away from my family, just like the book said I would do.

On discovering that I was typical for the lost person (third son) of an alcoholic family, after being a failure as a Christian (I was gay, so that is an automatic failure, go directly to Hell, do not pass Go and do not collect any salvation at all or forgiveness). I chose to convert to paganism when I reassessed my situation.

Paganism accepts people that are gay, it gives an empowerment, and you are accepted automatically as a part of the divine feminine. They also accept solitaries, so you don't have to deal with the politics that happen when people get together, and the holy grapevine, which is deadly to the unpopular in Christian circles.

I discovered true "faith" in paganism. Now, my prayers get answered, and the Wiccan deity Hekate has a reputation for answering prayer (written about by the philosopher's of old--I think it may have been either Socrates or Aristotle), which I have found to be very real. Lately, I have been missing the camaraderie and ranks of the Christian movement (Sam Fife's "The Move"--I enjoyed the holy dancing during their praise services--greatest of aerobic workouts...) I was a part of, though I have burned my bridge forever with this group.

I recently parted from my coffee socials with one of their prominent families and supporters of the holy grapevine, though they enjoy divine immunity because they are from one of the prominent families of The Move. The Move forgives no one, though they actively preach that all the people that have been drummed out of The Move should forgive them.

Having seen the devastation of so many sincere Christians by this group, myself included, going back is not an option. They enjoy the prodigals that all feel obligated to at least try going back, but few survive repentance with this group, which tells me it is foolhardy to try. They fit all the criteria of a true cult, especially in the single most common thread that flows through all cults--a competitive system of promotion from within. This assures that brown-nosers all win and people who question everything get drummed out of The Move. Since you have to kiss ass to get ahead and climb the ladder to ministry (with its power over others attached to it), they are just like the world and are not the peculiar people the Scripture talks about.

We did have fun times as a small group of the original founders of the Body of Christ in Wasilla, Alaska, and I acknowledge missing it, but I love my new faith as well because I enjoy the best of being able to follow my heart instead of dogma.

"Chaos pagans" see magick and faith as science that we do not yet understand. It centers on universal energies and faith within, which has to do with our latent power as humans, which science has not yet investigated enough to define for us. Chaos magick also allows for adopting a particular deity for a given time in order to use it to accomplish a particular task but without commitment to that deity--its part of the formula. I refer you to "Walking in Memphis" for a "for instance," when the author in the song is asked if he is a Christian, and he says, "Maam, I am tonight!" Being a Sagittarian, Sagittarians are into spirituality, so I get the above honest, but I am so glad I found the use of structure without having to bow the knee to structure.

Religion should serve us and not dominate us.
