Autistic Psychopath's Christian Conversion

Why I Am a Christian (David Wood, Former Atheist's Conversion Testimony)

For the record, this kind psychological personality transformation is considered in the clinical literature to be improbable to the point that most psychiatrists/psychologists would say it's not possible. This has been known for a long time - in the Bible these kinds of conversions always involve a supernatural external intervention, at least as reported by the person who makes the change. For example, Saul getting struck by lightning.

[open sarcasm]  I shouldn't put too much stock in what shrinks have to say, Skeptoid. I mean they say 'gender dysphoria' is a thing and we all know better...pfffffffffft.  [close sarcasm]. Lols.

Thanks for posting this video. Indeed, Dr. D. Wood openly refers to his psychopathy diagnosis (from adolescence). He has indicated in other vidoes that he is incapable of feeling certain emotions, among them fear or grief, and has openly wondered whether this makes him suited to approach societal topics that others are afraid of. It's resulted in gems like this in any case.

He IS a genuine anomaly. And, for the record, I have been and remain ever skeptical of the reality of what he presents. In other words, I've held my breadth for six years waiting for the inveitable news story detailing an inevitable implosion, but it never happens. He does genuinely lack key human emotions - he was born with a skewed mind at what is likely a physical level. Fear, grief, are truly absent in his experience. Remorse - only as calculated in a very robot-like rational manner, as in "I've been the worst kind person by any objective analysis." But the gut-wrenching substance of emotion that we experience isn't present.

 

I'll always be keeping my eye on him - he's a point of wonder, but also a point of caution. Just keep watching him.

The supersticion lives on. One of the strongest messages from the church has been keep up the Tythes,    keep those private planes flying.

Here is what I can speak of from personal experience.

 

The more I have sinned in my life, the more it has taken hold and further from God I would drift. With that came addiction to my behaviour, I would be quicker to anger, less concerned about how I treated others. More selfish, less inclined to care about God.

 

Sin is corruption. The more you sin, the more inclined you are to fall further in. Like hedonsim. The more you chase pleasure, the more you need to "stabilize." Just like drugs.

 

The bible even speaks of demonic possession. You have no peace, you are more susceptible to greater depravity, the more tormented you become. It's not always as stereotypical as people squirming on the ground and screaming gibberish, but some extremely tormented live in that kind of delerium.

 

Since I have turned back to God incredible changes have taken place within myself. 

 

The idea of fear of damnation and guilt being guiding prinicples of Christianity are for those that do not truely believe. Those that seek to allow Jesus to guide them, align to his teachings naturally.

 

Those that practice prosperity preaching, which I have noticed has strong leanings in the pentacostle sphere are false prophets. God blesses those who he chooses to bless. Not everyone who just asks for it, or even worse makes that a staple of their church.

 

God promises to meet people's needs, not their greeds. False prophets are promised the greatest suffering for taking advantage of the sick, the desperate and the poor.

 

Eternal damnation is not something a Godly believer rubs their fingers with glee about or wishes on anyone. We desire everyone's salvation. But we cannot choose it for them.

 

I pray for my enemies, and those that wish to harm me. Sometimes with great hesitence. But I do it because only God knows who can be saved and who will not. It is not my place to decide.

Why are you so hateful towards theblackswordsman, Boldfart? What are the views he holds that offend you the most? 

 

What views do you hold? How do you judge what is the moral, or just, or right course of action in any particular situation? Do you live by principles? If so, what are they? 

 

Wouldn't you like to be something more than just a vestigial extension of another Spiked National? Sometimes you show a degree of independent judgment - you even uprated one of the cottage fairy videos didn't you? We'd all like to understand you better and what's important to you - for real. This comment section is yours - tell us about yourself.

Thanks for that man - I've had a similar experience. I've seen too many people who call themselves Christian possessed by a particular tribalist doctrine or dogma show little to no apprehension about indoctrinating children into something that is nothing more than a man-made, parasitic growth feeding off the miracle of Christ's gospel and the transformational power of the Kingdom message - the magical mustard seed. This, despite the dire warnings from Christ himself that if you fuck up kids in my name you're fucking toast dude - done.

 

Getting out from under the NPCs who wear Christian skinsuits while misusing His name for their own personal self-validation is not easy. Those with the best characters can be buried by false Christianity, smothered to the point of hopeless nihilism and unable to ever recover.

God warned that we must face persecution. We will likely be spared the majority of the tribulation, but Satan's power is growing over this world.

 

What I am not sure of is if the time is now or not. The word is very clear that Satan will establish the new world order for a time. That is what I see many ministers forgetting. Especially when they talk about "the plan"

 

There is a chance we can delay it a little while longer. But in the end it succeeds for no less than 7 years until the Return.

 

There was a Prophecy a few years ago. Not that we should put much faith in them. But it's an interesting thought experiment to wait and see if true.

 

That Trump found Christ just before office. He may achieve a second term.

 

After that. He will return to his life. The prophecy suggests that he will be overrun and killed by a violent mob in his office.

 

Looking at the political and social climate. I can see that as a highly likely outcome. Especially as revenge for the damage he may do to the Luciferian Cabal, and the "Great Delusion" that God has mentioned will enshroud the masses.

Christian sects used to favour the young. Not only for indoctination but also for abuse.

It also depends on what you define as Christian. to you, is just believing in God? There are a lot of people that believe in the existance of God. I would not call the majority of them Christian.

 

Is it everyone that goes to a place of worship? I can tell you not all church goers are Christians.

 

Is it everyone who says they are a Christian?

 

I think not.

 

Is it everyone that reads a Bible or believes only cherry picked pieces? No.

Christian?  Those are the people who killed the christians that followes the wrong version (Protestants vs Catholics  30 years war UK etc.) justified slavery and destroyed the culture and religions of the native americans (north and south)  And those who pirated the superstions of others (great flood, virgin birth, christmas etc. etc.)

 

There are many hundreds of gods that fools belive in. Christians belive in only one of them (the god of money) I belive in one less than that.

In the bible the catholic church is mentioned as the "Church of the mother of Harlots."

 

That church was a political compromise. Wicked emperors of Rome slaughtered Christians in the early years of A.D.

 

But Christianity grew. Amazing really, considering for a time you would be put to death in horrific ways if your faith was discovered.

 

Once it grew uncontrollably, the Roman authorities developed the catholic church. It was a fusion of christianity and Greek god worship. Which where you get the saints, and the glorification of Mary. The belief that being baptized as a baby = salvation. And maintaining confession of sin through priests.

 

Catholosism spread to lords and kings. It was about political influence, power, money, control of information and civil development. The inquisitions were carried out largely by insane lords and wicked kings against those that questioned the church and it's practices.

 

The natives were destroyed by the politics of French vs English.

 

The reason we celebrate Thanksgiving, was to celebrate the alliance of the colonists and the Indeigenous people. We worked together. We brought them technology, and the showed us where to hunt and fish, and how to cultivate the soil.

 

England and France were at war. England was recieving supplies from us from the resources we gathered here.

 

France saw an opportunity to hurt England's war effort by dividing the Natives against the colonies. They spread propoganda against us, and divided us. The french also became their "new friends" offering troops, weapons, teaching them techniques of war, raiding and torture.

 

Thus began the French and Indian war.

I'm rusty on the Spainish involvement, but I do remember they had a lot going on at the time. I already talked about slavery in another post. I'm not really in the mood to repeat myself.

You got a mind of your own or are you just content to be someone else's puppet? Whatever Daft Cunt says about a Spiked National you mindlessly echo without thought or consideration. I certainly hope you aren't an adult.
