According to the good old gospel, I was a sinner… Correction, I am a sinner, still…
Yep, a sinner.
A bad girl authoring my one way ticket to hell.
My parents had a doozy of a time raising me. While they lapped up everything that was fed to them, I questioned all of it. The tyranny, the hypocrisy. Happy faced Christian’s who donated to the church every Sunday, projecting their Sunday best behind catered masks, for underneath all those smiles and good gestures, were some of the most (not all, but many) self-righteous, judgmental, condemning rats you’d ever encounter.
Now listen, I am not here to bash on Christianity, for this isn’t about Christians as much as it is what religion does to (certain) people and the belief they hold that if you’re not a Christian and don’t have Jesus in your heart, you are doomed to eternal damnation.
A little stiff, even for you, Jesus, don’t you think? (I know you got hung on the cross bro, but at least you rose from the dead on the third day and went back to heaven). At the rate I am going, I’ll be circling Dante’s 9 gates of hell for eternity.
Well, what do I do?
I am hardwired to be naughty and wild. It’s just my nature, dude.
Hmm… I wonder what I will learn down there that you can’t learn right here, on good old fashioned earth? Cause sometimes I think heaven and hell are already here, right now, on this planet. You can tap into either within the blink of an eye.
In my humble opinion, religion has always been the devil’s hiding ground. Coming from a place of condemnation and intolerance isn’t God, it’s something else, something else entirely. You know what I mean.
It takes a genius to hide behind the veil of the righteous in broad daylight condemning all these sinners to hell and for people to actually believe that kind of a person is holy. As a kid I saw right through it. I saw through it so clearly I didn’t have a need for anyone: not religion, my parents or my friends to tell me what was right and wrong for me or how I should live in accordance with divinity.
After studying all the major world religions in college, and familiarizing myself with the historical Jesus, versus the one who gets noted in the cannon, I too have a love for this mysterious man who will forever be more famous than whatever Pope exists at any given moment. Jesus had an amazing message and though Christianity tried to adapt it, I am not sure they really understood what Jesus meant when he said, “The kingdom of God is inside of you.” I’m not sure Christians ever understood Jesus was a Jew either, but oh well.
I don’t know if the Christian Jesus ever came into my heart all those time I was sincerely asking not be a wild child, but the historical Jesus entered my heart in college, when I realized that there is love in my heart for all religions and the good it tries to do in people’s lives. Everything has its downside and I just choose to see it, not persecute it. Some people need faith and need to hear the words of God to feel like they’re moving in a positive direction. Do what it takes to be at peace with yourself, is my philosophy.
For those people who get constricted and condemning because of religion why don’t you try accepting the fact that you can’t stop thinking about blow-jobs, sex, and all things naughty and get on with life. I sincerely doubt you are hell bound for being a horn dog, and I’m sure Jesus already knows what’s up, for remember, God made you in its image.
Peace. Jesus. Love. Sex. Music. Kelly
