A Woman’s “Open Relationship” with God — The Onion

I read a story at http://www.theonion.com/content/node/67089, titled:

I’m In An Open Relationship With The Lord

It’s just an interesting  article on a woman’s relationship with God and how she identifies herself through that relationship…I also figured she posted it on a website, so VR is involved as well as  religion and how Nordstrum came up with her “open relationship” theory/analogy on God, worshipping, and feeling “fufilled” through having a special identity with this “open relationship,” which she explains in the article.

Here is a little bit of the beginning of the article to get you interested (it gets better as it goes on, so click on this: http://www.theonion.com/content/node/67089 to read the whole article (which you definitely should — it’s not too long, funny at times, and not hard to get through):

With Jesus as my personal Savior, I felt like I had it all. But then we hit a rough patch, and before long, I was beginning to question both my faith in Him and His commitment to me. At one point, it seemed the relationship was doomed. But I did a lot of soul searching, and together we found a solution that fit both of our needs by adopting an alternative theological lifestyle.

It all started when I was 16 and first asked Jesus to enter my heart. It was incredible. He filled me up with His love. I’d never been redeemed before, but with Jesus it felt so right, as if the sins of the world had been lifted off my shoulders. For a while there, we were communing via the sacraments several times a week! And every night we spent what seemed like hours in long, mutually satisfying sessions of prayer. I worshipped Him.

Soon the honeymoon period ended, however. Whenever I spoke to Him, He seemed distracted and distant—sometimes I wondered if He was listening at all. Daily devotionals felt like we were just going through the motions of repetitive, meaningless dogma. A few months later, I made a potentially disastrous discovery: I found out I wasn’t the only one He was sanctifying….
