My father has always been a staunch religious man full of convictions and legalizm. Recently he and my mother got a divorce after 26 years. us kids had mixed feelings over it. They were miserable togther and brought out the worst in eachother.
My dad started dating a woman shortly after he filed for divorce. She is Native American and VERY involved in her native religion. She took my dad to a sweat lodge retreat and then he had went on a retreat to meet his spirit guide. He hasnt really ever been the same. I am watching him fall further and further from the church and bible in general.we have gone tit for tat about religion and the validity of his new New age religious movement but usually end in grid lock.
Well, yesterday I was telling him how my son asks me what happens to the people who chose not to follow and love Jesus. and he asked me what did u say? so I told him I explained that Jesus says only through HIm can u get to His Father and my own father said I was teaching him fallacies and that u dont need Jesus to get to heaven!! I ahve NEVER heard him say such things!! I exclaimed how can u say something like that when 6 months ago u said u still prayed to Jesus even before ur spirit guide expiditions to protect u etc. and he said Jesus also says there are many rooms in my Fathers house and ur not gonna tell me that the Jewish, Islamic and HIndu are not going to heaven if they are good people because they dont pray to Jesus. He said I was doing an injustice to my son and leading him with fear. The conversation didnt end well. I told him i didnt even know him anymore, a man who used to pary the Rosary every single day and go to Mass 2x a week.
Is this what thereare many rooms in my fathers house means? different religions? Im scared for my father. I think he is in deepr to the new age thing then he realizes. he went to China and studied there with buddhist monks and also I found out he is a reiki master and he asked if eh could tune me. He said hes my dad he would never mislead me. But this screaming alarm is sounding in my head, but I want to trust my dad, he is after all my dad and never steered me wrong before. :shrug:
