I am here, Jesus.
I wish now to discuss this ongoing battle in your soul between wanting to speak what you perceive to be the truth about orthodox Christianity, and a desire to be silent and not offend or cause division and inharmony.
The truth is itself alone. Essentially, it has nothing to do with pleasing people. People have believed error in all good faith. Does this make the error true?
Another major factor to consider is that the idea of salvation by my crucifixion and by my blood is completely untrue, and has done more damage and harm to spirits than almost anything else.
Of course, it is sin that makes spirits suffer - I was referring to beliefs and attitudes.
The central idea for you to ponder as you wrestle with this conflict is, whom do you want to please most, people or God? For many years, you desired the former.
So it’s important that you be clear that you wish to please God first and foremost. No one can advise you here. You have to make your peace with it yourself.
