God Told Me To Assassinate The President
People who believe that it is god hidden in the voices in their heads commanding them to bizarre acts, tend to act them out, out of fear and respect for the creator of the universe. Such voices are a symptom of schizophrenia. The mental illness tends to be overlooked by everyone if the voices identify themselves as god.
It starts innocently enough. The Christian, guided by wishful thinking, pretends a laudatory or encouraging thought/voice in his head is the creator of the universe dropping by for tea. It may say something Hallmarkian and saccharine (never a cure for cancer), which helps the illusion.
The Christian feels special. Now he is hooked. He will believe whatever nonsense that voice in his head comes up with, even if it tells him to start a dog-food diet or kill his mother.
Strictly biblical Christians reject these voices because they have read John 5:37. God does not talk to people (at least not any more).~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
