A Letter To My Voices

A Letter To My Voices by David Lee Chu Sarchet

Dear Tom and Rita, 

I am writing this letter to tell exactly how I feel about the two of you. The purpose in my writing this is to show other people who hear voices that they don’t need to be controlled by them. They can take ownership over their voices.

I understand this letter may seem harsh but know that this letter is written in love. I love the both of you, but I also hate the both of you too.

Tom, I love you because when I was younger you were one of my only friends during my darkest moment in life. However recently you have been a real jerk to me. Rita, I love you because you are always sweet to me but you tell me things that are not reality. As a matter of fact, both of you tell me things that are not in line with what is real.

I am constrained by Holy Scripture because the word of God defines what is reality. It is precisely this reason why I must reject what you both tell me because the things you say are contrary to Scripture. When you tell me that I am God and people are worshiping me, I know that is not true because God’s Word tells me that that there is only one true God and He will not give His glory to another. Also, when you tell me to hurt other people, I must reject that as well because the Word of God tells me to see people as humans created in God’s image. This means that human beings, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or whatever else are to be treated with dignity, respect, and honor. 

In the past, you both have been invaluable friends to me, but lately all you have been doing is causing me distress and anguish.

I do not believe that you are demonic because I understand that you both are just the result of a chemical imbalance in my brain. It is because of this that I need to always remember to take my medication and see my therapist, despite you two trying to persuade me not to. I am thankful to the Lord of Hosts for blessing me with a good psychiatrist and a good therapist who actually take the time to listen to me. 

I would like to thank you both for something though. I want to thank you for providing me with companionship during my loneliest times in my life and I want to thank you for your understanding of me during my weakest times in my life. However, since these days you seem to only want to convince me to do do bad things or to think blasphemous things, I must see you both as a nuisance in my life that I must deal with through proper medication and counseling. It is because of this that I desire the return of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when He will resurrect my mind and body and make all of creation brand new.

When this happens, I will no longer deal with the two of you because there will be no more pain, suffering, sin, or death for He will wipe away all our tears and we will be in perfect communion with The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Soli Deo Gloria!
