voyeuristic living
So most people in the known Christian world would probably already heard of this story being repeated and told all over by now. If you don't know, just google 'Michael Guglielmucci' to find out more. But to just recap a bit, I pretty much speak for most of us that we are all just disappointed, angry and pissed off that such a thing like this could happen.

Me personally, it's just a huge disappointment. It amazes me how anyone, no less a leader of a huge Christian church, could do such a thing to supposedly fool his family and everyone around him that he was suffering from cancer but just a few days ago confessed that it was all a ruse.

This is one of those things that is going to be talked about for years to come now. Non-churched people will have smugs on their faces and I don't blame them. If I was on the other side of the fence, I would probably be laughing and mocking the God followers for their faith and where it has got them so far. This only allows for more shaky ground to develop that Christian people are all money suckers and nothing more. People of this faith will have their foundation rocked and questioned as to why and how someone like Michael would even orchestrate such a thing like this.

Guglielmucci was the one who composed and wrote the song "Healer" in his "time of dying" which is really a great and inspirational song. I think it is an awesome song, no doubt, but I don't think this song is going to be played during future services for a while now as it's going to be akin to opening up fresh and old healing wounds. I don't think I can listen to this song with the same feeling and emotions as previously but with time I believe that we can take away from the song with a positive message and not feel like such a jackass because of what's happening to the song writer.

According to the news around, most churches all over Australia will be reading Michael's statement regarding the hoax he's played everyone for almost two years now. I really don't know what to make of all of this yet but hopefully the aftermath of this won't be as bad as I feel it's going to be.

I feel sorry for him and his family who has to go through all of this so personally and being scrutinised now for every move they're going to make regarding the handling of this circus act. I can only think that what with Michael being put on the pedestal because he is a leader and because he wrote such an inspirational song, the crucifying of him will be most brutal and painful in the worst possible way. I can only empathise for his current situation and yes, I will be praying that he gets help, which he is supposingly doing, and that this does not affect the Christian faith too much as it is already. It will take time to heal from this as it feels almost like being told that the next Harry Potter film won't be coming out this year. Oh, wait, that's already been done. Damn it. Okay, maybe more like being told Christmas is not coming this year, except about ten times more hurtful.

Posting this video of 'Healer' is not a spiteful thing but more like a healing process. I don't want to associate this song with Michael's fake cancer but more with the powerful message within it that it is supposed to be and hopefully will be for future years to come.
