Tarnished Testimony- When Religion Becomes god

Can you walk with God and still rarely go to church?

This is not a news flash – more damage is done in the name of religion than by global pandemics.

That which kills the body is nothing when compared to that which kills the soul. We’re all God’s children, but some siblings have done such a thorough job of sullying the family name that millions of others have disowned it.

It isn’t easy to remain part of organized religion after watching so many halos slip or fall right off. Financial embezzling, adulterous affairs, incest. People who are adored as pillars with  global followers slipping on the banana peels of life and slaughtering not only their own credibility, but in the minds of the people whom they have “lead to the Lord”, destroying God’s as well.

I have reached a point where I finally know that God is the centre of my belief and the leaves on the vine are to be respected for the office they hold, but nothing more. Not blindly followed.

Nothing that happens in the lives of those in leadership must be permitted to rattle your confidence in The Almighty. If it does, you are at risk of idolatry. Church leaders are all mere mortals with no power to save or sustain you. Don’t give them the power to destroy you.

There is a book out there that has done so very much for my peace and joy in my walk with God. And please, don’t blast it until you read it.
