The Weirdest Thing Someone You Know Has Claimed to Do For Religious Purposes?
I ask some crazy/thought provoking questions huh? Anyway one of my friends plays exactly 1 hour of chess with himself per day because he thinks god tells him to do it (I'm more of the theory that he should visit a psychologist...soon) but have you met anyone else like that? Also please don't start a war in comments...
Some are just created by man, these practices are actually man made
One of my friend did not turn up for work as her religion taught her that there will end of the world (last year December). Therefore, she decided to skip work not only one day but 3 days and when she realized that the world is still turning, she got back to work and apologized.
Amazing story I would say
Kill. There have been several killings throughout time that the perpetrator claimed that God had lead them to do it. Of course, these individuals were mentally ill.
A former president used to believe God talked to him and we see where that got us...
Anyone who thinks God is telling them to do something is usually doing something that benefits them and not those around them.
CrescentSkies, I confess I was doing weird things a couple decades ago...before I knew better...
At that time all I heard on television (evangelists) in the churches and at the Bible study group I attended was a focus on attacks from the devil...how we were in a war and how we had to be vigilent.
It was pounded into me to fear the devil, put on the armor of God and fight! I became fearful for myself and my family.
As a result of my fear, I would often march around our house ordering the devil away.
I remember one particular summer my husband, son, daughter and myself were getting in the car to drive to Virginia Beach on a vacation. There I was, marching around the car, ordering the devil away!
It was all I knew at the time.
I regret that behavior because, even though my kids were saved at an early age, they have very little interest in God today because of their mother who, instead of getting to truly KNOW the Spirit that lives within me, I listened to everyone else and their religious suggestions.
In other words, I was a follower of 'religion' instead of trusting God.
Now I know better. A close friend also did it at the time, but now we just laugh about it. We both learned that since Christ died for us, we have nothing to fear and it is so much easier to put God in control of our lives.
Thank you for this very interesting question. Blessings, Sparklea
A friend of mine told me someone would ask people to describe the weirdest things they do for religion. So, now you have proven that he is not weird.
