If God wills it

I had to write this after reading this entry here at 
Only once have I ever punched someone in the face for insulting my belief in God - I did not know the person very well, he was a friend of a friend... I can’t remember what the conversation was about now - this happened about eighteen years ago - but I remember what I said before the insult - “we will all have to answer for our sins in the end...” he laughed and said  “you don’t believe in that crap do you?”

I say - “what God?”
“Yeah - you believe in that shit?”

Without thinking I swung my arm... my fist hit his face and he fell back to the ground... he looked up at me in shock and the other two men I was with stood there in silence... I looked down at him and said - “you don’t know me - you don’t know a fucking thing about me... that was for insulting me...” I turned to my friend Dave and told him to get his friend away from me before I beat the stupid out of him... Dave laughed, picked his friend up and they walked away...

I have always been Christian.  I have believed in God and Christ all my life... I have strayed... I have wandered and I have dabbled in occult subjects - even joined a group once that claimed to teach the truth... but... I never stopped believing in my creator and in my savior... and after the things I witnessed and my own personal experiences within and out side of the occult world, my faith has only gotten stronger - my advice to men looking for answers or if you are just curios, in the occult - don’t do it... it is not worth it, whatever they are offering... just go in the opposite direction... Now, I will say this and move on because it is not something I want to talk about - mostly because I can’t (I can mention it but I can’t discuss it) - even Satanist believe there is a God... there.

I may not be the most religious of men nor would I qualify as a moderately religious one.  I was raised a Roman Catholic and I have carried its teaching and principles with me to this day - actually putting it all into practice is a rarity... I do however try my damn hardest to live by the golden rule - do unto others as you would have done to you - basically, treat people the way you wish to be treated... the best rule and advice ever... thank you Jesus, for that one... but... sometimes people do not treat you the way you treat them and that’s when faces get punched... and dicks get kicked in... I am not very good at the turn the other cheek rule... sorry Jesus - but you know the type of man I am...

I do not preach the gospel but have absolutely no problem discussing it with others.  I do not try to convert anyone but will offer advice and counseling on the subject should anyone ask for it.  I am not a fanatic born again Christian type that wants to save your soul - they are a bit annoying aren’t they... but I understand them... though I do think many of them are full of it... I do not attend mass but I do go to church about twice a week to just sit there in silence and talk to God - I prefer the stillness and beauty of old churches and the smell of the candles and incense that have seeped into the walls and the pews after so many years and the echos that carry throughout those old buildings - (I have just learned that one of the old churches downtown that I visit does have a Latin Mass... and I have decided to attend once a week, next time I am there I will ask for a schedule).

There are people that want to take my beliefs away from me - away from Christians, as in the article above, these do-gooders want to make sure there is no public display of our beliefs - no posting of the commandments or nativities, no prayers in schools or sporting events... no talking about religion or converting members in the military because all of this is offensive to those that don’t believe in God... morals and ethics are offensive as well I guess... not sure how and why - peace on earth and good will towards man... the golden rule... that’s Christianity as I understand it - but the do-gooder tells me it is offensive... it must get in the way of the sodomy and the baby killing...

My belief in God hurts no one, much like my racism hurts no one... I am a peaceful man... but... I did punch a man for insulting my beliefs... imagine what I will do come the day God takes these chains off me... and I... am not even a religious man...

very good post---It's important to know what you believe or others will tell you what you should believe and this goes for many areas, especially religion. When I married my husband, he was (he's not anymore) a member of the Church of Christ. Little did I know at the time, but they saw us as being unevenly yolked because I wasn't a Church of Christ member. I was a Christian but that alone wasn't good enough. We had to do premarital counseling for several weeks which really equaled to my religious beliefs being questioned. His pastor questioned my baptism and said he didn't think I had been baptized the "right" way. He also strongly suggested that I get baptized again into the Church of Christ before our wedding date!!!! I still remember what I told his pastor, "Sir, no disrespect but I've been baptized in a church--dunked in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I've been baptized in a pool at church camp--in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (I think). I was baptized in a lake in "Jesus Name." I have also been sprinkled in the Methodist church in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I wouldn't hesitate to do it again if I felt God wanted me to renew my faith but I DON'T EQUATE MARRIAGE WITH BAPTISM!!!" And that was that--no further comments. After that day, I didn't know if he would marry us or not, but he did anyway. And. . . it's true Satanists believe in God . . . by definition if a person believes in Satan then they also believe in God . . . Satan believes in God!!! and he knows the Bible very well. Satan also knows that he will lose in the end---he's always known.
