You have big names in Scientology running around pretending to be the nicest people, and they take the care to talk to you and look at you in the eye, but that’s all part of the process. That’s all part of being in the church – to be a good example, to ingratiate yourself to Hollywood so that they’ll say, Hey, I don’t know why you’re attacking Scientology. It’s all purposeful. I did it, I know!
I’m the only person in my family who can’t sing. My grandmother was an opera singer and all of her kids were in church five days a week – or between church and vocal lessons at Carnegie Hall. But my mom had her first studio experience recording on my album. She’s used to having to fill the room, so she had to adjust to the microphone and not sing opera.
Marriage vows in an objectivist church would probably run along the lines of Do you promise to attempt to dominate and subdue this woman until such time as you grow bored? Maybe. Close enough. And do you promise to applaud this man`s production until such time as you find someone with a bigger … corporation? Whatever. By the power vested in me by having scammed you guys out of a marriage license fee, I now pronounce you man and appendage. May you be unencumbered by small persons.
The only way out of the Scientology church is rip the Band-Aid off and know that your eternity is not at stake and know that you’re doing the right thing and know that you’re involved in a damaging, hurtful cult. Just look outside, don’t listen to Scientology. They are not saving the world. Don’t give up your lives, don’t give up your families, don’t give up your friends for something that turns its back on you and is ultimately a lie. What’s Scientology’s selling is a lie.
I know specifically me being somebody who has had most of my experiences within the black church, that’s cultural… you gotta put on your church clothes when you got to church…and it’s nothing wrong with that – that’s absolutely fine! But I think what’s happening to a new generation ,the hip hop generation, there’s astigmatism, a feeling that I’m unwelcome.
The idea that I would get to see this revival was almost overwhelming. And in the last decade or so, I believe we have seen this revival begin to sweep the earth. We have seen amazing moves of God in Africa Recently, I was in China and met with the underground church. I was told there are at least forty-five million Full Gospel Christians in China. I discovered a depth of prayer and integrity there that I have not felt anywhere else in the world So I believe we are seeing Wigglesworth’s prophecy begin to be fulfilled. We are seeing the first stages of it.
If there were even one spark of evidence from antiquity that Jesus even may have gotten married, then as a historian, I would have to weigh this evidence against the total absence of such information in either Scripture or the early church traditions. But there is no such spark-not a scintilla of evidence-anywhere in historical sources. Even where one might expect to find such claims in the bizarre, second-century, apocryphal gospels…there is no reference that Jesus ever got married.
