I Cannot Go Back
I cannot go back. I'm not just talking about the workers' meetings. I have no desire to go to their meetings anymore. I'm talking about not being able to go back to the hypocritical religion scene. The Bible has commandments in them that need to be believed. And if I'm going to compromise my relationship with God to make friends, or attend some fellowship gatherings, or impress people who don't care about me anyway, then what's the point of saying "I have faith in God."?
So what I'm saying is that I cannot go back...to the way of following a system and going along with popular beliefs just for the sake of consoling myself that I'm "Christian" and living a hypocritical life of not having faith in God.
I cannot go back to the place of saying "Uh huh" of "Yes" in agreement when I don't agree.. and when they don't agree with scripture. I cannot go back to going along with people when I don't agree.
I am however going forward with reading my Bible more. Reading to understand. And if I don't understand, then I'm going to ask questions. And if you don't like my questions, then don't ask...but remember, I'm not going back. If you expect me to believe the lies of your local fellowship group, then forget it, and remember...I'm not going back to that way of life. I've been a worker, and painted my share of bullseyes. It's emptiness. Have you ever been an impressive person to some, but a hollow-feeling sad hypocrite inside? It's emptiness.
I'm impressed with some records I've read of some people. Let me share them with you.
Deu 13:11 And all Israel shall hear, and fear, and shall do no more any such wickedness as this is among you.
1Ki_14:8 And rent the kingdom away from the house of David, and gave it thee: and yet thou hast not been as my servant David, who kept my commandments, and who followed me with all his heart, to do that only which was right in mine eyes;
1Ki_15:5 Because David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.
1Ki_15:11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
These are the people I'm impressed with. These are the type of people I want to keep company with. The 2x2s have nothing to offer, there is no reason to go back when everything is ahead of me.

Cannot Go Back
|To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me. - Jesus Christ speaking to Saul, see Act 26:18, see Salvation through Jesus Christ.|
