Marvin Returns

In which Marvin begins an account of his week which started at a gay church!

(When he called me to tell me he posted, he apologized for the abrupt ending of the recording. Blogger only gives a few minutes for a message and he got cut off. Hedidn’t have time to re-record before having to run off to work. He promied he will continue his account very soon. Who knows where it will end?

    Marvin, I greet you in the name of all that is Good!

    This was really one of your very best posts. I feel so convicted for not attending church for awhile.

    I confess: I wish my name was Delores so you could say, “Hello, Dolly!” to me, too.

    I don’t think I’ve ever asked God, “Where to go to church this morning?” and then see what happens. Wow, that you were lead to that UU church is quite amazing! I loved how you greeted the guy who wished you so well!

    This ends on such a cliff-hanger. I can’t wait to learn what happens next!

    Marvin, I felt very strongly as I heard your latest message that you are going through a time of severe testing by the devil. If you are not vigilant against the plots of the enemy, Satan will have you in his grasp once again.

    I implore you, Marvin, to listen to the wisdom of your pastor. God has placed him in spiritual authority over you for a reason. It was not God that sent you to that other “church”, but Satan, because he wants to tempt you away from the One who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. This is all just part of Satan’s ploy to get you to return to the destructive gay lifestyle.

    Stay strong and remain in Christ.

    Anyway, hope you post again soon, very interested to hear what happened. I think it can be enlightening to go to a church (or even a mosque or temple) that is very different to your own, and to experience how other people celebrate God.

    Even if the experience was just very strange to you, I still think it’s a good thing that you went. More understanding between people of different faiths can only be a good thing.
