When I became a Christian I accepted the Bible as the word of god without question, because that's how it was presented to me, now I see so much of what I took as foundational truths are not true at all.
Back in the days when I was an atheist, I lived on a remote island - Cortés Island - where even children smoked pot. On that island, there was - and stil is - a place called Hollyhock. I worked at Hollyhock for a while, cleaning up stuff, doing odd jobs and trying to stay very busy so that no one there would speak to me. You see, everybody at Hollyhock struck me as weird...really, really weird. Weird in a nice, dripping-with-honey
way that made me feel uncomfortable. Hollyhock never identified itself as New Age, but it clearly was and still is.
I'm sorry to tell you this, Butterfly, but I get the same impression from your blog that I got from Hollyhock. The markers of New Ageism are there in your blog for all to see. As such, I can't take seriously any of your Bible studies posted there because they are tainted by unbelief. Not the unbelief of a seeker: the unbelief of a hater of God. Like Eve, you have believed a lie.

I'm glad that you are happy and have a wonderful husband. My disappointment comes from knowing that you and he are on the road to hell, and there appears no way for you to make a U turn.

If they had a social gospel in the days of the prodigal son, somebody would have given him a bed and a sandwich and he never would have gone home.
