The Spiritual quest of one woman.

 



 

I am a Christian. I am part of the family of God. However, some of my siblings have disfellowshipped themselves with me. I am shunned. I was adopted into Jehovah's or Yahweh's family at age 13. I managed to do this with a protocol unacceptable to the others. Why I do not know.

 

My Baptist Siblings disfellowshipped with me. This was most obvious at the Death of my mother; several of my sisters walked around me and my grief to comfort my biological sister.  Why I do not know. Most recently I tried to reunite with a congregation of my Baptist Siblings. The vote of acceptance wasn't there.

 

My Pentecostal Holiness siblings plainly denounced me saying I will burn in Hell. Perhaps I will.

 

 My Jehovah witness siblings to my face, I am a sister then in worship I am blocked both visually and audibly thanks to Zoom and Covid- 19. Their true feelings are showing. 

 

My Adventist family has disfellowshipped themselves from me. Why I do not know. I suspect it is my outspokenness against the prophet Ellen G. White. I cannot accept her teachings as being equal to the word of God.

 

I have entertained thoughts of converting to Catholicism but, I can't bring myself to pray to ceramic saints or hand made images of the Virgin Mother. I mean no disrespect but for me this is worshipping idols. Maybe I'm missing something I don't know.

 

I seek to belong. I have toyed with the concepts of Wiccans but years of various Christian doctrine and philosophy have programmed me to believe that witchcraft leads to Hell.

 

I simply don't belong so I'll worship God alone in my own way. Which is a combination of the above splintered factions of my Christian Family.
