“NOW YOU SEE IT – NOW YOU DON’T; How the slight-of-hand of religion robs men of the realty of God!” ~Gary Holman

Archie, I saw a book awhile back whose title struck a chord within me – it was called, “I was a Charismatic; Now What?”

I didn’t read the book, so I can’t speak to it, but I have seen so much showmanship and posturing and manipulation of man. I have seen less scruples in Pastors than in corporate America even as the church immulates that very system which is so sick.

I have been a part of every movement of God for the past 50 years – now I just want all of God. I don’t want to build a ministry or buildings or programs; just people. That’s the Kingdom of God!

I don’t need a “Word” or a “Miracle” although I know that God can do both, I just need the opportunity to be real with God and my fellow men. I need to be able to take off the pretense that would get you kicked out of most churches and be able to be apart of the body of Christ who confesses their sins one to another and love each other into the fullness of His Maturity in spite of the reality of those sins. Can I get a witness? Is anyone else as tired of religion (even the “full-gospel” religion as they are hungry for the Living God and the Community of believers?

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".
