This was not an easy lesson for me. I was saved by grace at the age of 8. I have been told countless times the levels of terrible I am just for being me. That was a wrong thing to do. It's very wrong.
Throw the bible out. God loves us and cares about us and wants us to get through this thing called life happily and in His presence. Step one, drop that book on the ground, accept yourself for who you are and who God loves. Be that self unconditionally. Let the haters drop their noses in their book of lies. I serve a living God who is a jealous God. Do you think he wants that book to be infallible? How many times do you have to be told to abide in Him to not have to abide in that poor excuse for christian love, the bible?
