Cher Posted September 17, 2018 Share Posted September 17, 2018 I grew up in the southern baptist congregation. I grew up with a mother who believe that witchcraft all Witchcraft and sorcery. I grew up with a mother who believed that there was a demon around every corner. I grew up a Christian. I at 24 quote quote gave my life to Jesus Christ I was going to give it my fullest chants I didn't want to go to hell and as far as I knew I was going. I just wanted some protection and I thought I found it in the church. Recently the church is going totally crazy. and all my time I have not seen anyone truly live up to the ideals that you find and the sacred writings. The worst part about it was that I had to give up the thing that was most important to me which was my connection to the Earth. Now at age 50 my mother died who was the chief primary person responsible for me being involved with Christianity in the first place and her brand of Christianity was crazy. So I'm on an adventure looking for other things other ways to believe. dabble a little bit and Buddhism but that still didn't feel right for me. then I found out about wildwitchery and suddenly I found what I felt like was home. And yet I find myself feeling oddly guilty from time to time terrified of what people might think who might leave my life. if you listen to the southern baptist every human being on the face of the planet should turn their back on me if not throw stones. honestly I thought I was the only one who would ever dream of leaving the church and then I found you guys. this is really new and actually I'm still pretty frightened so I'm hoping that by talking to a few of you guys I will be able to finally be able to settle this. Can some of you share with me what and how you work through some of these emotions back and forth of maybe I'm going to hell maybe I've got this all wrong and but this is what I really feel and how I really choose to worship? Thanks in advance. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
