journal: February 9, 1993 "I hung on the cross yesterday. More
when I have time, but simply, I never began to understand what Jesus did for me until yesterday. And I still gained only a glimpse of the
reality, the absolute subjection/submission to horror . . . for me.
Every believer should wear a crown of thorns and hang on a cross for ten secondsthey
would never be the same. And I cant help but feel that every non-believer
would accept Christ on the spot if he did the same. I have never felt so alone, so
naked, so ugly, so emotionally bareand I was just play-acting, dipping my toe into
the experience of the cross. What He did for us! He chose it! . . .
Lives will never be the same. Mine will never be the same. Hanging on
the cross. It was awful beyond description
. . . and I was faking it."
