Quote# 36937

My parents, who are now deceased, were in a prophetic ministry. My Father pastored several churches and was also a traveling evangelist. When my parents were in their twenties they were baptized in the Holy Spirit.

At night, when they would first go to bed, an Angel of the Lord would enter the room to teach them God's Word. My brother was a little boy and shared their room at that time. My brother would see the room light up with a white light. My parents would see the angel. They described the Angel as being so tall that he would have to bend over to fit in the room. They said he was nine or ten feet tall.

The angel would explain scriptures to them and answer their questiones. My parents ministered from the 1950's thru the 70's. America was visited with a mighty move of God's Spirit in the 50's and 60's, after that the church entered a lukewarm state.

I'll bet you bought the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus, too. There's no shame in it, man -- we all were young and gullible once. But there comes a time when you need to let it go.

The NBA would have paid that angel way more than he was making on any heavenly gig.

Funny how your brother never saw the angel.

The white light is easy to fake. A ten foot tall angel is harder.

Your parents probably excelled at general con-artistry and the advanced art of flim-flammery.

cool cats pretty much nailed it for me.

Okay, I'm getting that Mommy and Daddy used to do it with the light on, and when your brother started getting nosey they told him the first thing that came into their heads.

Was this about nine months before you were born perchance?

Wow! A nine foot tall angel just walked in through the window!

Honey! Call the police! I'll get the baseball bat!

Fundie religions kicked in shortly during and after the depression (increased their flock I mean) their numbers are higher today then the fifties.

A lot of returning soldiers had lost their faith in World War Two. (This is documented) so the fifties was a waining period.

The prosperity of the 60s-mid 70s really upped the numbers , this is where the dog and pony tent revivals and radio preaching really kicked in I think. You jerks didn't have multi-million dollar showbiz cathedrals then.

How is it, with your brother in the room, he could see the light but not the angel?

Anyway, children are not exactly reliable eye witnesses. I saw Rudolph once as a child. Looking back it was probably an airplane. But damn it it was Christmas time, and I saw a red flashing light in the sky!

Also maybe you should check your history books, the 50's were not this great white bread golden era. A lot of shit was going on during that era. "Leave it to Beaver" was not a documentary.

"My parents, who are now deceased,"

I'm so sorry.

"were in a prophetic ministry"

I'm so sorry.

"My Father pastored several churches and was also a traveling evangelist"

I'm sorry, that must have been so terrible.

"When my parents were in their twenties they were baptized in the Holy Spirit."

I know how you feel </lying>

"At night, when they would first go to bed, an Angel of the Lord would enter the room to teach them God's Word."

How sad.

"My brother was a little boy and shared their room at that time. My brother would see the room light up with a white light"

He must have been so traumatized.

"My parents ministered from the 1950's thru the 70's"

That must have been terrible for you.

I'm pretty psyched about your loss, though.

It's true, only fundies get to see demons. But I guess, only fundies get to see angels too. Lobotomies - a mixed blessing.

. . . , after that the church entered a lukewarm state.

Why hast thine angel forsaken thee?

I stopped visiting them because they were nutjobs. Fuckin' kids kept yanking my wings and asking stupid questions.
