Breaking Free From Religious Abuse
One of my favorite quotes is, "If it weren't for all of the Christians, I'd probably be one." The truth is that many Christian churches have shamed people into believing certain ideologies or created fear-based lies they have continued to perpetrate as TRUTH.
Have you been shamed into believing that God will only love you "if"...
Or have you spent the majority of your life feeling persecuted by "Christians"? Afraid to live in your "truth"? Fearful of God's wrath if you don't abide by certain religious ideologies?
You don't have to throw the baby out with the bath water. There is a truth that most Christian churches refuse to acknowledge when it comes to what the Bible really says about certain lifestyles and choices that many are forced to make in their lives.
I grew up in very conservative, Southern Baptist, Christian environment. And the differences between what I was being taught in my abusive home, and what I was being taught at church only led me into a life of Atheism and abstinence from God entirely. Until I finally discovered for myself, through Theology training, studying the original ancient Aramaic translations of the texts, learning Greek & Hebrew, and a deep personal dedication to discovering the truth on my own, has led me to a great discovery.
The church may have been lying to you...but God has not!
This isn't about talking people out of religion. It's about helping people understand the deep resonating truth of God's love, and understanding certain "church beliefs" that have been cultivated and promulgated throughout the years.
Religion is adopting someone else's perspective on God. Spirituality is discovering it for yourself!
