I guess that most of you know that my wife just died from cancer. I have to let you know this so that I don't have to defend myself for letting a PREACHER IN MY HOUSE.
He is part of the Hospice operations and tries to help those who face death. My wife was not a church goer but she did have strong religious beliefs and he could be of some emotional help to her.
Anyway, He Stopped By a few days ago. He asked me why I didn't show much interest in his attempts to be of use to my wife and I during this difficult time. I tell him that one reason was that I didn't like his comment about " well keep smiling " to me as he left the very first time he came. Actually it pissed me off.
I tell him that I don't see the need for Organized religions as my wife had told him. This led to a discussion about the jw's and then about his beliefs.
The first things he brought up were DEAMONS as he said he had seen them at work in some visits he made. Maybe he was talking about me???
Then it went to how psychologists tend to damage ones religious beliefs, which caused me to point out that some religions are so damaging to ones mental health that they need a psychologist.
It amazed me that he sounded like some elders that I have known. All wound up in the fear of demons and psychologists.
I didn't think to ask him if he had checked his house lately for possibly demonized furniture or such.
I wonder if he will come again. Should I be a little easier on him?
