Time To Wake Up
This is Step 1 of the 3 Steps to return to God. It’s going to be amazing once you’re on the other side. In short, the way to return to God begins with forgiveness. Realizing you are wrong to judge and act like God. You’re going to the source to break from the past.
You’re going to forgive your parents, for making you resent them when you were a child.
Common Inquiries are below, and let us know if you have any questions!
Why do I need to forgive my parents?
We are “born into sin,” meaning 2 things. The first is you’re born into flesh (Sin). The second is that before you were born, you were perfect.
So right now, you’re a combination of the perfect you, and the not-you (sin).
To return to God, you must let go of the not-you (Sin) of judgement, which is believing you know what is Right and Wrong (The Knowledge of Good and Evil that Adam received).
To let go of the Sin, you must realize that you’re wrong to judge others, and must forgive the source from where you were born (mother and father). After this forgiveness, God will forgive you.
It’s that simple…Amazing, right?
Why hasn’t anyone told me this before?
“For many are called, but few are chosen.” – Matthew 22:14
It’s truly simple, but we’ve been mislead by false idols to believe it takes a lifetime to potentially go to Heaven, to follow doctrines (made up by man) or made up rules on the chance of salvation.
Whether it’s bible thumping, brainwashing, persecution, fear, or just not-knowing, that is for God to sort out with those individuals, not you.
All that matters now, is that you know, and you can choose to follow God, or to follow the fallen world. Although it’s simple to forgive, most will not do it.
What am I supposed to say?
Do not plan the exact words that you need to say. Just know that you’re going to your mother and your father to forgive them.
Remember: You are going to forgive THEM.
Because they made you resent/judge them as a child.
What do I forgive my mother for?
Was your mother perfect?
Usually the response is no, nobody is perfect. So you know there is something they did that you didn’t like or appreciate as a child, that was traumatic and made you retreat into your mind (thoughts
She could have been: Overbearing, angry, missing, imposing, judgemental, speaking ill of your father, making you question yourself, promoting weakness, physical abuse (not punishment from love), not giving you the love you needed, ignoring you…or whatever comes to your mind
He could have been: Too weak to protect you from your mother, missing, not giving you the love you needed, not guiding you, not being the father you needed…or whatever comes to mind.
What do I forgive my father for?
I’m afraid they will get angry, or don’t think they’ll like what I have to say.
Once you go and say “Mother/Father I forgive you for _______, which made me resent you and judge you, and I realized you know not what you do…” (or whatever you say), treat the experience like a movie, watching them react and seeing the anger/judgement/hate come out of them. You may be tempted by thoughts to be angry back, but just relax. You’ve forgiven, and God will now forgive you.
*the exception is if there’s physical risk. Then that can be changed by forgiving them over FaceTime vs. in person, or to look at a different way of forgiving.
