So, I have to weigh in on this. We are not brainwashed; just awakened to who God really is and what He has done for us. Librul I pray that your eyes will be opened to the reality of who God is and the plans He has for your life. We also are not religio-addicts we actually hate religion as Jesus did but we LOVE God. This is not about going to church twice a week and not cursing it is way more than that.
You see I will tell you a little about me...my dad molested me when I was 18 mos old and my mom left me with someone so that she could work on her marriage. So, I guess because of that I grew up craving male attention. I began stripping and using drugs by the age of 18. I continued living a wild life filled with drugs, crimes, alcoholism, promiscuity, and other sexual perversion. I even slept on the street at times. When I was 23 I was struck by a car while crossing the street that was going like 45 and didn't break anything; but that did not change my wild lifestyle. Three months later I overdosed on heroin and woke up in an ambulance. I still kept living how I wanted to. Then one day I was kinda broke from the night before I had like five dollars to my name I could either buy a pint of hundred proof vodka or some cigarettes. I decided I could buy the alcohol and buy a cigarette on the street. After all I was headed to the strip club and I would have some cigarettes soon. I saw a man on my way to work and stop and ask to buy a cigarette from him. He said he didn't smoke but said I needed to go to church with him and his wife. At that moment I felt God like I had never before. I went back home and prayed and God radically changed my life. Now, almost four years later I am a senior in college (I start my last semester Mon. before I receive my bachelor's degree in Justice Administration), a student leader on my campus, and just married my best friend in Aug. I didn't do that by myself; God did it all! He that has been forgive much loves much! We love God SOO much because He first loved us and are so happy to be free. That is what this is about not money. <
