Daily Journal - March 25-31, 2013

Monday March 25,2013 5:17am Been up
since 3:30 Just Finished Cleaning the
Floor, sink and toilet made the bunk and waiting
on breakfast. I'm going to work on some stationart
this morning, write a letter and exercise leg's abs
cardio and may even do some push ups. Other than that
just have to see what today holds.
6:48am. Just finished writing a letter. I'm trying to raise
money for a lawyer. Chow was late. They still haven't picked
up trays. That's sick how that 17 year old kid, killed that 13
month old baby. Someting is wrong with the human race.
9:10am. Just finished an ab, legs exercise session. I'll do cardio
later today. I've been getting dizzy and a headache. I hope this
goes away. I'm going to lay down.
11:35am. Just finished lunch. I've
been sitting here reading the
bible doing some research. I'm
thinking about leaving this alone
showing all the problems with
the bible. In fact I think I'm
going to write church's and
see if I can find some assistance
there. Only problem is 98% of
these preachers are con arist
using the churchs to rob the
poor. I had to put my music
on to block out the dumb and dummer.
Their watching the price is right
and talking to the T.V.
12:55pm. Just did a 40 minute
cardio workout. Fixing to do
some work on this new station-

Con artist selling books and other stuff so they can sow reap and hoard money. Christianity is a mess with all
these false lying deceiving prophets.
4:49pm. Just finished eating. I broke my tooth on a chicken
bone. I'll have to get fixed next time I see the dentist.
That will be my last piece of real chicken. The guy I was
dealing with found some one to give him more. I've got me

Ron, why don't you get off every Christians back? We aren't perfect, never will be, impossible. It's about something different. If you think every professed Christian is God walking around, that is wrong. Jesus IS God, not a man - they are one in the same and it is truly a loving way to save us. God is to perfect/sinless/HOLY to encounter lie among us, so he came in the form of man. I am sorry you missed that in your reading. As I said before - I don't think you are given the ability to understand or feel the love of it all. Read about Moses on the mountain and why he shielded his face when God appeared. Jesus was in HELL those days fighting satan for our sins. Question for you, sincerely, where did you think He was?

Three people ONLY went to heaven without dieing first, interesting stories, little trivia. See is you can find that. :)

As far as all these robbers in churches, preachers, etc. Well, there are those in prison also who try and scam churches for money alongside writing gay porno for money as you said you did. No one is perfect. Is all the money you get truly earned and deserved? See.... cast stones at your self also. Question is, and the bible clearly says this many many times.... our father is a King, should King's children go without? Well, you never replied to my comment.... but thats ok. your Christian friend you mention..... please know that he is like all of us, we sin, it can not be helped. The blood covers that..... and sadly we must always remind our self that it is not to be taken for granted, because it is given to us in mercy. Please be careful with your words...as I will mine, and neither want to lose any grace and mercy towards our life. If you are so interested and eager..... LISTEN... be open, as the Holy Spirit is trying to talk to you, and He won't always knock at your door.... try not to read it all so literal, the Old Testament is over, it is about the New and also Revelation, Paul was in prison writing that. You have a lot of casual spending money on your account - buy some real books from Amazon.... NONE NONE of us can find all the truth and meaning about the bible without reference.

Part 2

Max Lucado is a great start...... "And the Angels were Silent" will explain in every detail where Jesus was 3 days. Max is a hugely popular, famous writer and his org. will donate/send for free to you in prison! See not every one is a scam. And to close, may I say, my family has written an inmate there over 18 years, he said "you have your problems, BUT, you will always help another fella". You are caring, compassionate.... allow yourself to be loved. Being a Christian does not mean all wrong is turned right, it really means..... "Live your life like you know the end of the story.....because you do." And if you really want to explore... well, you need to... because the written bible, is hard to understand, I personally have to get out 2-3 reference books to even read a chapter. Is your bible one with foot notes and cross reference? Needs to be. Set yourself free and live some..... you would be a good mentor.... for the youth, life is not over for you there........ and I appreciate what you do share food wise etc with fellow inmates. My friend gets about 50.00 a year only on his account. Feel blessed because you are. Write : Multnomah, 8435 NE Glisan St. Portland, OR 97220 for Max books, ask kindly if they will donate to a prisoner in search of answers....

Try and not be so bitter about God, until you fully realise the dynamics here on earth now and why, you will not be able to understand that until He comes again, evil is still trying very hard to win a losing battle.... don't be mad at God for where you are, He did not put you there, satan did. Be mad at him, for all the worlds crimes even YOUR own ! Cuss him for where you are... and to yourself for being weak enough to listen... love is not about tying people to a post and saying you will love me regardless. Love is free will, how ungratifying would it be to God to create the world and MAKE all us of love Him.. such a sweeter love is to know hey, they chose me, they chose to love me! You are hating the wrong source.. actually giving credit to satan by doing that. Don't feed his army, he uses you like a little pawn and so enjoys it.... he wants you to commmit suicide, die, be miserable, because he is. Live....

Your research on the bible is very interesting, I think you are right in saying that it has many flaws, but I think it relates more to people taking it too literally and applying next to no context, than the actual context.

I really enjoyed reading your letter. Your discipline and motivation deeply inspires me.

I don't blame you for being skeptical of the Bible. There is some crazy stuff in there and some crazy people try to use it for their own good. I am not a Christian myself but I grew up in a Christian household. If only fraction of the Christians of the world showed the strength and fortitude that you have the world would be a greater place.

I really enjoyed the artwork on your stationary. I loved seeing the same drawings more than once and seeing the great amount of detail and subtle difference from one to the other. I am a musician by profession but I also like to paint. I am not any good at all but it really makes me happy to do.

I am so happy you made it outside. You are so strong for keeping so motivated for so long without ever being able to walk around. You're strength is a marvel of this world.

God bless you,

Damn so many stupid people raised by other stupid people and taught to believe a silly fairytale about a man in the sky being born by a virgin, and other crap stolen from other older religions... and here we go, poop this book out into the world and with so many stupid people around (much more now than there were 2000 years ago) they will keep the shit alive for a long long time.

The sad truth is that humans are parasites on earth, all they do is use and destroy everything they have around them. We should and we will be extinct, because we are scum.

And when we die we won't see anything and no evil man in the sky is going to punish us.
I am horrified at the idea of heaven, spending eternity with stupid people-sheep that I try to stay away from on earth? These people are scum and a true hell to be around.
