Church of the Path to Christ

Discussion in 'Religion, Beliefs and Spirituality' started by paul peterson, Apr 29, 2002.

  1. Yes, I just started a church. Not right now, about a few weeks ago. You see, I was an atheist for like FIVE YEARS. It started when the wife (soon to be exwife, thank you) told me to go see the doctor about a "drug problem". They told me to take this "depacote" thingy (for bipolar). The stuff caused me to drop out of a deacon position in our local protestant church. I even stopped the choir! Even after I stopped the med, it still persisted-sort of a GOD IS DEAD THINGY. Then, in 1997, they said I had ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). I took this ritalin and whoa-that helped a lot during the day, but each night I would drop like a rock. FIFTEEN pills later, to try to take that depression thing away, and a minister therapist dude told me to MOVE TO CALIFORNIA (If you know what I mean). That was when PAULY first looked at the cannabis control act in ILLINOIS (THE LAND OF LINCOLN).

    WOW- We have had a really good MEDICAL MARIJUANA LAW right here, since 1979 (a weaker form started in 1971!). So I got some and found that I could dose with that at night, right when the ritalin would wear off, and I almost saved my marriage-YEP, YOU BET! That was 1998. The shrink wouldn't even believe the law existed, when I forced him to read it, he refused to believe it SAID WHAT IT SAID! Of course, he was scared of the DEA (and who can blame him!). So finally, the wife got real scared of losing the family farm and filed the big D. Then I came forward and talked with EVERY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY KNOWN TO MAN. Of course, I am no longer a lawyer now, but hey, I am a WAWOD now (warrior against the war on drugs). So these guys that took me to trial a few weeks ago took my doctor's deposition 4/1/02. They actually asked him about my "RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCES" that were provoked by a high dose of ritalin + cannabis. The guy said you can NOT TELL BETWEEN A DELUSION AND A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE-They shut up right away (since we have this first amendment freedom of religion thingy!).

    That's when I knew I had just started a church! I'm waiting for a really good decision to come out from Hawaii-Also the DA from SF, Cal. just announced last week that pot laws discriminate against pot heads! So watch this billboard for more info. Come to my web site at ILLINOIS-MMI.org and read about the history I have written up. Since I am lobbying the DEA & FBI & Stuff about this stuff, be discrete, (maybe use a library computer or something, eh?). I will understand.

    PAUL PETERSON-FIND CHRIST WHEREEVER HE LETS YOU FIND HIM.
     
  2. dude, u got an interesting story. BUT (and this is a big BUT), i really don't think christ is the answer. I too started my own religion (well, less of a religion, more of a philosphy, but to describe it would take longer than i can afford to be online).

    Christianity, when u take into account all the differant variations (and even when u don't), is the MOST hypocritical religion in the world (except perhaps at a push Islamic fundamentalist extremism) and the more versions there are of it the worse the problem gets.

    Why bother being part of all that? why not start afresh? make your own religion just for you. the first amendment will still count.

    being someone who HAS read the bible and was brought up as a christian, i fully understand the bullshit that makes up religion responsable for more Wars and Deaths than any other in history. logic, probability, common sence, the wisdom of any 10 year old, cross referencing over 5000 contradictory points in the Bible, cross referencing many thousands more scientific discoveries and scientific fact, 2000 years of transcribing, mis transcribing, telling re-telling and misinterperting and re-interpreting the bible, and the blind belief that whatever u do you (the sinner) will be forgiven, ALL KINDA POINTS TO THE CONCLUSION = BULLSHIT

    also i gotta say... WAWOD - very very good. I think i'll be using that acronym alot.

    ok, so u r a WAWOD. so, do u just go looking for fights? (joke) u were an athiest, and now you've added your religion into the whole "jihadd"/"war on terrorism" by being a christian!!!!!! stick to one war at a time. :D

    Normally I do my best to avoid persuading people to abolish christianity from their lives. It's a matter of personal choice. It's part of my philosophy NOT to manipulate people to think like I, for i believe it leads to the path of Facism. I leave the religious manipulation to the Christians and MOST other organised religions of the world. BUT.....>...!

    having heard that u were an athiest, and in these dangerous times, and upon hearing some of the reasons u created your own church... I felt I HAD TO say my part to at least try to save u from the BIGGEST MISTAKE OF YOUR LIFE! sorry if i have offended u, that is deffinately NOT my intent. I just want to make sure you are going into this with your eyes open, (all three of them!) :D

    Peace, good luck, good karma, good wishes etc be with u.

  3. hEY, DON'T GET ME WRONG, I KNOW THIS MONIKER HAS KILT A LOTTA PEOPLE OVER THE EONS. THE PROBLEM IS WHAT WILLIAM JAMES SAYS: CERTAINTY IS MORAL DEATH! JOHN ASHCROFT'S CERTAINTY ABOUT THE "RIGHTNESS' OF HIS RELIGION ALLOWS HIM TO KILL PEOPLE-WRONG-"The mistake is turning one belief into a trump card over alternative beliefs ie: don't rule out other possibilities" (Another WJames quote). Another guy said: All change is understood as an unfolding of an idea (Friedrich Schelling). WJames stated it as: "Truth happens to an idea, it becomes true by the happening of circumstances". OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES, JR. got real skeptical about some sort of diety or divine "mandate", because if you think you are right over other people, that causes you to believe you can force that on others-baaaaaad. So, yeah, this is basically a karmic thingy after all, isn't it?

    I JUST DEFINE THE SPIRIT AS THE DIETY THAT YOU SEEK, AND THE BETTER YOU FIND HIM (OR IT) AS LONG AS THE SPIRIT ESSENCE IS POSITIVE, THAT IS ENOUGH TO CONFIRM THAT YOU ARE ON THE PATH. I FIGURE THE BEST WAY TO "TELL BY THE FRUITS" IS WHETHER A SPIRITUAL CONNECTION LEADS TO VIOLENCE? OR FORCE? THAT IS NOT THE "WAY". how am i doing, eh? Not so bad for a Christian? The way I see it, this way I can confront these people on their own turf. paul
     
  4. I just wonder why so many people follow a religion that has killed so many in the name of their god.
    Isnt that like pro-life activist killing people?
    I have a belief that christianity was started so A type of government wold be established to rule over the human race and all the different governments have evolved from there on.
     
  5. nice one mrspliff.

    paul, thats all very nice. and certainly seems to come from the mind of a confused christian (no offence, just want you to observe the possability) whom does not realise the hypocracy of what they do because the are truely not thinking for themselves. and if you do beleive you are tuely thinking for yourself then why are you quoting so many people? what is paul peterson saying? not these other people. u gotta at least repect the fact that not all people think alike and thus it becomes a "too many cooks spoil the broth" situation if u base some or all of your beleifs on what others have said. don't think like them. think like you. individuality is not wrong for you.
     
  6. :confused:what the fuck?! this guy is kinda screwed up... i'm wicked stoned and just skimming his posts it sounds like nonsense. what the hell is wrong with you dude? why are you capitalizing so many words? relax man, fuckin chill out
     
  7. and he shouts alot. makes me not want to read.
     
  8. The underground Church of the Most High God
    they have a tv show where this charlie manson looking dude gets up, reads the bible, reads from the rastfarian bible, rolls a joint and shares comunion. The entire resistered legal religion is based on the judeochristian meets rastafarian meets tantric neo amorphicexistenialism.. a legal offshoot of the illegal ethiopian zion coptic church
    they claim a religion for those religion forgot!
    In the USA and Amsterdam,NL
