Jewels, Gems & Gunpowder

I would love to hear from you! Sharing Saturday with you.

Jewel: Incest lives by the rule of Pharisees and teachers of the law.

What do I mean? A mother or father that instructs their family in the way of incest often does it through a religious façade. Behind their religious customs and human rules and teachings, there is no honesty. Nothing is heartfelt about there religious words of nonsense.

They are liars of the worst kind bringing false reports against the very ones they hurt.

Gem: Jesus does not live behind the veil of religion. As a matter of fact, His gift to us was that he removed everything standing in our way to God. Move away from the religious rules of an incestuous family.

Those rules are designed to keep you stuck and in prison.

Metaphorical Gunpowder: I blow away all religious rules that hamper my freedom in love. The freedom found in Jesus Christ. I am free. The rules I was given in my childhood are manmade and I do not belong to them.

Leave your jewel, a gem or something you kept yourself free from with metaphorical gunpowder.

Happy Saturday!

Incest. Murder. Rape. Then, I turned four. This is my story.
