I was thinking about a church experience I had today and than I related it to an experience in which I saw a man commit suicide. I was with a friend who had drove me to Lancaster when on the way back we encounter a massive traffic jam. My first thought was why is there so much traffic on the 14 fwy at 11 am in the morning when the traffic is usually free flowing at that time of day. It took us about 40 min to get to the section where the 14 fwy and the fwy going to Magic Mountain meet. All of a sudden when we reached that section I saw people outside there cars, people with taliking on cell phones, people taking pictures with cell phones, people taking pictures with camera, people with tear filled eyes, people crying, people laughing and people shouting jump! When I looked up to see what everyone was looking at I saw a man who looked to be in his early thirties. I looked up directly into his eves. What I saw was hopelessness and dispair as if he were saying "there is no way out, there's no hope for me." He was on the freeway over-hang getting ready to jump. There was the fire dept. with the air ballon deployed so he could jump to safety, the sheriff and police dept. trying to coherece him into coming back to safety but no of their attempts worked. He looked me straight in the eyes, and put both hands behind his back onto his belt positioned himself away from the air bag and jumped to his death. I saw his body hit the ground as if paper and jump back up bending his neck and slamming back to the ground to his final death. Why am I telling this story? Well, because people are going to church and coming home and committing suicide why? Because you can't tell church folk what's really going on with you without being judged, preached to, condemned or all your business spread all over town. So, you ask church folk how there doing and they say fine! Well, fine stands for f@!, insecure, neurotic and emotional. I have learned not to tell them anything. YOU'LL FIND IT PREACHED IN A SERMON THE NEXT MORNING!
And tell me this if you know someone whose parent was into withcraft would your sermon be the same? Find out all the facts before you jump to conclusions. Church people can be the most deceitful, hostile and mean-ness people you'll ever meet all in the name of the Lord.
I am through with y'all you know to much for me. I never met anyone who knew everything but you live and you learn. I hope one day Ill get that smart.
