I just discovered your site on accident. It is SO cool. I'm gonna be a
I am especially interested in the
correspondence with the girl whose
parents told the cops that she was influenced be a "satanic" cult, and the cops went along with the story. I'm glad the girl has posted
her own side of the story & it doesn't surprise me that she is a
free thinking individual. I've seen MANY teenagers & others
wrongfully accused at the hands of superstitious thinking.
You see, in the early '90's I trained
to be a police officer in my little home town just at the time when we
got a "born again" police chief. He practically converted the whole
department, pressuring people to get on board with his thinking or be
posted off in a dark corner somewhere, sometimes losing their job for
"bad performance" that they NEVER had before. Well, needless to say our
Sheriff's Dept. these days has most of the smart cops who left. While I
was willing to go in and respect other officer's beliefs, a witch hunt
was started in the reserve class (where the full time officers were
chosen from and included me). Carte blanche was given to one of my
fellow reserve cadet students who went to the same church as the chief
to do backgrounds on the other students (can you imagine giving such a
young, untried barely trained person THAT much power?). I always
maintained a 4.0 grade average in that class, and I was well respected
& a shoe-in candidate, but suddenly, when that student dug up some
dirt on me that I had played in heavy metal bands (obviously the work
of a Satan worshipper!) & that I MIGHT be gay, I was hounded &
harassed by this
student who had now been given the power to drive a black & white.
He stalked me around town, including pulling me over for made up
reasons, including riding an inch off the bumper of my sports car to
get me to speed or giving me a drunk test in front of people at the
fair. I tried to tell the chief, but he poo-pooed it like "Oh? What did
YOU do to deserve that?" It was only then I began to realize that this
was being done on PURPOSE to "weed out" many students who didn't belong
to the same church. I went from being the #1 candidate to a pariah in
During the time I was in class with
one of the born again Lt.s in the detective division, I heard him say
many things that appalled me that a man who was supposed to base his
job on EVIDENCE & PROOF. He would talk nasty about any celebrity,
religion or politician he didn't like (Jack Nicholson, Bill Clinton,
Buddism, etc.) saying things that insinuated that he knew or had secret
knowledge that they "used angel dust" (Jack Nicholson), murdered (Bill
Clinton), or were evil (Bhuddism, which offended me, I'm a Bhuddist).
For all I know, MAYBE they had, but they weren't in our jurisdiction.
Why talk about them? You're not supposed to talk about cases you're
working on with people who aren't involved anyway. All of these things
seemed to be driven by his rabid born-again Xtianity telling him that
these people were bad, yet no proof was ever given for these people's
guilt, and I was trained that a person is innocent until PROVEN guilty.
This disturbed me deeply when I was entering a job where PROOF &
EVIDENCE are not only important, they are REQUIRED. The fact that he
and a whole department would recklessly engage in speculation and
blackmail-like gossip over the public that they served was awful. It
was differnt if you actually KNEW someone had comitted a crime.
They would constantly get things wrong
as well. For example, when some grafitti showed up on a local wall that
said "GWAR", one detective told the local paper that it stood for
'Great White Aryan Race'. WRONG! As an "evil' rock n' roll fan, I tried
to tell them that GWAR was a comic rock band who pretnded to be a
savage tribe, but they wouldn't listen. I only became MORE of an
outcast for knowing the truth. They preferred the hysteria it whipped
up in our local religous conservatives who wanted
an excuse to lock up their teenagers until they are 70, like was
nearly done to me. Skateboarders were constantly harassed because
of the "gang" or "satanic' imagery they presented. I was
distressed because I was a skater growing up, and I know how
good-hearted & hungry for adventure those kids are. They just want
a place to ride & improve their moves. I used to wear that stuff
simply as a talisman to get people to leave me alone so I could skate.
Subject: Great site
I'm sure you don't need more people stroking your ego, you seem to do fine by yourself. But if you're ever in Boston and fancy a blowjob from a hermaphrodite, look me up. The Christmas season makes me feel dead inside, especially when I hear a neutered boy-band rendition of "Blue Christmas" while a glassy-eyed animatronic Santa waves at me from a shop window. Your site helps a lot.
|“I might just seem like another crazy 'Jesus Freak' to
you but I am the way I am because Jesus died for me”
I hope you are having a beautiful day!
I happened to be doing some shopping for a
Christmas dress and I ran across your website with “Jesus Dress Up”. I
have to say that I was quite shocked when I saw what exactly it was. I
don’t know what your intentions are (just for fun or to mock Jesus
Christ). I would be curious to know.
I was very disappointed when I saw the page
because I believe it mocks and diminishes Jesus death on the cross.
Unfortunately I do not know your true motives so I would never assume
the worst. I just hope that it is not for the reasons listed above.
Unfortunately I do not see it as “Fun and Games”.
Whether or not you believe that Jesus’ death was
factual or fictional I believe it to be true. After much research,
faith and study of the Bible I have come to the conclusion and belief
that it IS true. With that being said I don’t think it is funny to
diminish the seriousness of His death. It says in Isaiah that Jesus was
marred beyond recognition. He wasn’t just simply nailed up with a
couple of blood stains dripping down His face; He was brutally beaten,
had a crown of thorns pounded into his skull and beat with a “cat of
nine tails” (a roman whip filled with pieces of glass, bone and rock).
My belief in what the Bible states is that He died for MY sins so that
I can be given life. It says in John 3:16 “For God so LOVED the world
that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever would believe in him
would not perish but have everlasting life”. I find that amazing! I
have made many mistakes and yet God sends His son over 2000 years ago
to save ME. I certainly don’t deserve it but I’m so glad that He did.
Bob, Jesus didn’t hang on that cross just for me.
He hung on that cross for you. I believe with all my heart that He
loves you and desires you to know Him in a true way.
I might just seem like another crazy “Jesus Freak”
to you but I am the way I am because Jesus died for me, and I know that
He loves you just as much as me! No matter what! : )
I hope you read this email with an open heart. I
do not mean it to be confrontational, angry or harmful in nature!
I hope we can chat more on the matter.
And I pray that you have a wonderful Christmas!
“For God did not send the Son into the world
to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” John 3:17
“O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You understand my thought
from afar. You scrutinize my path and my lying down, and are intimately
acquainted with all my ways. Even before there is a word on my tongue,
behold, O Lord, You know it all. You have enclosed me behind and
before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for
me; it is too high, I cannot attain it…" Psalm 139:1-6
“For you formed my inward parts; You wove me
in my mother’s womb. I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very
well.” Psalm 139:13-14
“How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O
God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would
outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with you.” Psalm
I read your email and there was one part of it that intrigued me the
most. You stated "After much research, faith and study of the Bible I
have come to the conclusion and belief that it IS true."
I too have done much research on the matter.
Everything from studying how human beings have evolved (which has been
proven beyond doubt by science), learning how languages develop over
extended amounts of time (not in an instant at the Tower Of Babel),
even researching the writings of the bible and how much of it was
written by Jesus and people who knew Jesus, and how much was written
centuries after He died by people He never met. And after much research
on these and many other matters about the Bible I came to quite a
different conclusion than you. I concluded that the Bible wasn't
written by Jesus, or anyone who knew him at all! And I discovered that
people didn't live to be 900 years old, there never were any giants,
and there is no possible way for all of the animals on the ark to have
redistributed themselves around the world to their proper habitats. All
of those stories are actually false, just like the miraculous stories
in all of the other religious books from other parts of the world!
So with that said I'm sure you can see where I'm
coming from with the whole "Jesus Dressup" thingy. I am 100% positive
that Jesus wasn't the Son of any of the gods us humans have invented,
so therefore I clearly have no respect for a fictional character. Not
only that, but I'm actually against the spreading of this
misinformation to kids and adults alike. So I'm actually FOR mocking
and demeaning that which I perceive as a lie.
I am intrigued as to the evidence you've found
that proved the Bible to be 100% accurate and the evidence you have
that your God is the One True God, and not just another of the fake
gods I spoke of earlier.
I look forward to learning of your findings.
Thank you for your email.
|“Bob, I could go on and on (as I have in time past)
trying to persuade you the "other way" and give you information on why
I believe the Bible and why I believe that Jesus is the son of the One,
True Living God. But I will not.”
Good Morning Bob!
Thank you so much for your response back! I was
really excited to see that you spent the time to email me.
I read your email with an open heart and was very interested in reading
your thoughts. I have been sharing the "gospel" of Jesus Christ for 8
years and have talked to many people with the exact same beliefs. Bob,
I could go on and on (as I have in time past) trying to persuade you
the "other way" and give you information on why I believe the Bible and
why I believe that Jesus is the son of the One, True Living God. But I
Not because I do not want to take on the challenge or feel that I
cannot take on the challenge but because I believe that it would not
persuade your thinking. Since I'm sure people for years have tried to
change your thoughts on the matter. I have no doubt you have talked to
many such as myself.
So I would like to talk to you about something
else. Bob, Jesus loves you! Whether or not you chose to believe that;
I'm going to tell you anyways. I'm not a typical let me give you all
the historical facts, prophecies and logical explanations. I believe
that "all have sinned" and that we ALL need a Savior. Where are you
going to go after you die? Where is your hope Bob? So you might
think...."I've been asked that a million times". And I understand that.
I'm not trying to prove the obvious. I'm just saying that it is a
logical question. No matter what your beliefs, we are all going to die.
In Ezekiel, a chapter in the Bible, God says, "I do not desire that ANY
would perish but that ALL would come to repentance". WOW! I love that.
I believe we all have something missing in our life until we have
Jesus. I didn't say RELIGION I said JESUS. We can go to church ten
times a week and not have a personal relationship with Jesus. We can
try to be perfect and be "good people" but that is not going to save
our souls. It all comes down to faith Bob. There is wind but you cannot
see it; you can only see the effects of it. And it is the same with
God. Look at the world around you.....the trees, animals (all the
different species), your heart that beats with no batteries, your eyes
that can see millions of colors, your intellect, human life as a baby
is formed inside of a woman, etc. We could go on and on.
Bob, no amount of anything this life has to offer
is going to satisfy you. All the popularity, friends, relationships,
parties, drugs, sex, alcohol, music on and on and on is NEVER going to
fill the God-shaped hole in your heart. Because no matter what you feel
about what I'm saying, one day you will wake up and something will be
missing... what is it? It's a personal relationship/friendship with the
one that made you and loves you. And maybe you say "Well, I'm a good
person and I don't do all that stuff". Ok fine, but again, where is
Bob, I don't want to seem like I'm trying to pound
something you've hear a MILLION times into your head. All I know is
that I was randomly on the internet and literally stumbled across your
"Jesus Dress Up". Why? Because I believe with ALL MY HEART that God
wanted me to tell you He loves you. I had no idea you were an atheist
when I wrote you that email. I find it amazing that God put it on my
heart to give you those verses in Psalms....about God forming us in our
mothers womb. Hmmm...isn't that interesting. So I look at it like, wow
God loves you so much! That He would have me, some person out there
stumble across your page and tell you that He loves you. You have no
idea how much I felt that you needed to hear that.
Well, I've gone on now for too long and I'm sure
as I said before you've more than likely heard it all a million times.
So I'm going to stop now and just let you know that I care because God
cares. And I NEVER would try to shove anything down anyone's throats.
That's not my job or desire. I just want you to know that whenever you
come to that point, God will be waiting with open arms. I don't know
what you've gone through in your life but God does and He cares and
loves you more than you could know. He's just waiting for you to come
to Him. He'll take the pain, dry the tears, heal the wounds and bring
hope to your soul. Only Jesus satisfies, the world NEVER will. The
world is temporary and will let you down. Jesus is forever and will
never forsake you.....
Hebrews 13:5 "For He Himself has said, "I will never desert you, nor
will I ever forsake you"
God bless you Bob. I'm praying for you and I
honestly hope you have a wonderful day and a blessed Christmas!
