get into church...

Posted by Christ_empowered on November 21, 2017, at 8:26:39

...but where?

(relatively high functioning) "mental patients" aren't exactly popular anywhere, including churches. churches are filled with people, and people come from the surrounding community. my community more or less expects "mental patients" to "know their place," etc.

I was raised on the liberal end of mainline Protestantism. My current beliefs are a bit more traditional, but I'm not really "conservative."

Not to get all Marxist (yet again...), but there's also social class issues here. "Schizophrenic" usually=truly, genuinely poor. It is what it is. I have very few resources of my own, but my now "well-to-do" (my former shrink's phrase...) parents "take good care of me," and --that-- seems to "rub people the wrong way."

This isn't actually a -bad- situation, it just...is a situation I think about, now and then. Nobody likes being rejected, nobody likes being an outcast...and churches can be just as harsh as the outside world, and their rejection stings far, far worse.

if a church rejects you, or denies you, don't be offended, there's christains with beliefs similar to almost sociapthic beliefs, they rely and study on judgement taught by paul, and not jesus christ

i've been doing some extensive research on the apolsoles, of course i would never go to a church or people, but paul's teachings some of them are contradicting to jesus christ, he wrote letter to people, the apolsoles, those were simply letters, it's just reading his sciptures....i just sensed were contradiction

but if there's church that hurts you, you simply know, their none compassionate, and for the better to find a true church with followers of christ
