Anne Rice No Longer a Christian

July 31, 2010 by · 3 Comments 

Anne Rice, best known for her gothic novels, the most notable of all being “Interview with a Vampire”, has declared that she is no longer a Christian.

Rice said that although she is no longer a part of any denomination, she remains a believer. As a matter of fact, she continues to read theology and continues to post Biblical passages on her Facebook page.

According to her what made her renounce Christianity were the child abuse scandals in the church which was compounded by the church leader’s defensive reaction, and by the ex-communication of Sister Margaret McBride, a nun and hospital administrator who had approved the abortion for a woman whose life was in danger.

Rice wrote on her Facebook page last Wednesday that, “In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. In the name of … Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen.”

Speaking from her home near Palm Springs, California, Rice said, “I came to the conclusion that if I didn’t make this declaration, I was going to lose my mind.”

    No, she didn’t quit Christianity, she shows she never truly believed. A disciple of His follows Him, is grieved at the actions of sinners committed in His name, but could never stop following Him on His own terms.

    She said on the news she is still a follower of Christ, but not a Christian. She has mistakenly associated the word Christian with Catholic, and they are not interchangeable. You can be a Christian and Catholic, or a Protestant, or Non-Denominational. You can also be any religion and not a Christian, even though you may claim to be. A Christian follows Christ and His teachings, and believes he or she is saved by faith in Christ. People did not first start calling themselves by that name, but others, onlookers, gave it to them. When others see Christ in you, that’s when you are truly a Christian.

    If I could meet her in person, I would
    love to say “Thank you Anne Rice –
    for so very articulately stating what
    I have felt in my heart for years” !!!!

    One’s ‘Faith-in-Christ’ should IN NO WAY
    be tied into the man-controlled ‘Religion’
    that so many refer to as “Christianity”
    (especially that apostate, psuedo-religious
    political-movement called ‘evangelicalism’)

    It took me forever to realize that my
    relationship with God (as established
    through Christ Jesus, God The Son) was
    IN NO WAY dependent on the apostate
    psuedo-religious movement sweeping
    America in the name of the “church”.

    If Christ were walking the earth today,
    a lot of these same “religious” types
    would be the first to demand that He
    be ‘crucified’ — and based merely on
    who He chose as FRIENDS (women,
    gays, foreigners, immigrants, the poor,
    the rejected, the downtrodden, the rich,
    men, old, young, happy, sad, and so on).

    The “evangelicals” (not to be mistaken
    for TRUE FOLLOWERS of Christ) and
    other “church” types have essentially
    hijacked the Christian ‘Faith’ in order to
    turn it into a mammon-worshipping,
    power-mongering, “Religion” of hate.

    These people are more akin to a system of
    ANTI-CHRIST (i.e. “against”-Christ) than
    to anything tied into WHO CHRIST IS.

    Their evil has reached such profound levels
    that even people who know and love Christ
    are turned off from them and their words
    (again proving these “church” types are
    really nothing more than anti-Christ,
    self-righteous Pharisees and are not
    even remotely related to Jesus Christ).

    Never again will I waste my time stepping
    into the psuedo-religious social-club that
    is known as “church” or associate myself
    with the political-clique that is known as
    ‘christianity’ — because FROM NOW ON
    — I realize that I do NOT “need” either
    in order to have a relationship with MY
    LORD JESUS CHRIST (in fact, those
    two entities were actually ‘interfering’
    with my relationship with God)

    THROUGH CHRIST — GOD HAS OPENLY
    EXPRESSED HIS LOVE TO ‘EVERYONE’
    (no matter if rich, poor, gay, straight, male,
    female, sickly, healthy and so on) — AND
    CHRIST (not the so-called”church”) IS
    ‘THE DOOR’ and ‘THE WAY’ TO GOD!!

    ALL ARE WELCOME TO APPROACH AND
    TO ENTER THROUGH ‘THE DOOR’ TO GOD!!

    NO ONE IS REJECTED BY JESUS CHRIST !!!

    JESUS LOVED AND LOVES EVERYONE !!!

    LET’S ALL TRY TO REMEMBER
    THE BIBLE VERSE OF ‘JOHN 3:17’:

    “For God did NOT send His Son
    into the world – to condemn
    the world, BUT that the world,
    THROUGH HIM, might be SAVED !!!!”

    JESUS CHIST – and *not* the institution known
    as “the church” or the religion called “christianity”
    — IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE!!!

    LIKE MANY OTHER PEOPLE – I AM DONE
    WITH THE CHURCH & WITH CHRISTIANITY
    — AND FROM HERE ON OUT – MY FOCUS IS
    ON (AND FAITH IN GOD RELIES IN) JESUS
    CHRIST AND JESUS CHRIST ALONE !!!
