Welcome to the ULC Minister's Network

Why I turned to God.

  • When I was ten, my stepfather molested me. He also broke my right hip and my left knee so I wouldn't be able to run away. Because of what was done to me, I suffer from manic depression and paranoia, not to mention the knee and hip problems.

    Earlier this year, before I turned twenty, I was in severe physical and emotional pain. I decided to listen to some music in order to calm down. The song I chose was "Thy Unveiling" by Insane Clown Posse. Before I go any further with this, let me explain. Insane Clown Posse has been attacked and demonized by Chrisitians everywhere due to the shock value of their lyrics, but if you listen carefully to certain songs, you can hear hidden messages proclaiming the teachings of Jesus Christ  to be true. All of insane Clown Posse's music makes reference to " the Carnival".

    In "Thy Unveiling" there's a part that goes: "The truth is we follow God! We've always been behind him! The Carnival is God and may all Juggalos find him!"

    When I heard that, I hit the pause button on my MP3 player. I played it again. And again. I then started listening for messages in their other songs.

    In the song "Echoside", which talks about what Hell is like, there's a reverse message. I downloaded the translated version and listened to it. this is what that message says: "Fuck the devil, fuck that shit! We believe in life legit. Ain't you gettin' what we say, why you throw your life away??"

    In their song "Pass Me By", they talk about what Heaven is like.

    After I listened to these songs, I fell on my knees and started crying. When I was finally able to stop crying, I began to pray. Insane Clown Posse's music touched me in a way no other group's music has. They may curse in their music, but if it wasn't for them I would still be on the same path now that I was on then.
