Coming to Terms with My Religion V

When I was growing up I was taught that anything related to the mystical world was evil and from the Devil. I was always confused by this because the Religion I grew up in believed in the craziest shit.

When I was little my teeth were extremally crooked, my mother said we couldn’t afford braces, so she put her hands on my head, and COMMANDED that my TEETH be STRAIGHTEN in JESUSE NAME!!!!!

She then told me that it was taken care of…..I remember thinking, that she is crazier than a looney toon.

My mother used Jesus name for EVERYTHING, she believed if she said it enough and confessed it into manifestation. She used and abused the name of the Lord, to get what she wanted. My mother was an only child and was so spoiled and self centered….and she stayed that way her whole life.

The abuse of Religion is wide spread and out of control, I am tired if people thinking they can judge others because they love Jesus….but really is that What Jesus Would Do?
