Dearest James K,

I have been praying for you since I read one of your posts for the first time.

Is it that you do not want to be a christian or is it that you do not want to be what people call christian? Remember "Not all that glitters is gold"

I know that I have come to a place in my life that I want to know Jesus for myself. Not what preachers say he is. Not what christians say he is, but I want to know him. People will let you down, it is our nature. If I had to base my christianity on what people say it is, I would never be a christian.

I know this, The real Jesus would never hurt you. He would never put unrealistic expectations on you. He is full of love and freedom. He understands what you are going through. He just wants you to rest in His arms. He doesnt want you to try to be a "good christian" He just wants you to love Him and Him to love you. To tell you, "It is ok, James K." "You will get through this." James, you need to stop hating yourself. Just rest in Him. You have nothing to prove. Just let him love you with no strings attached. I have been hurt by "christians" but I have never been hurt by Christ.

I think that we sometimes have a warped view of Jesus, because some people who are christians are preachers, warp that view for us. If you have a glimpse of how awsome His love is, you would not be able to reject him.

With love,
