A while back, this topic may have been frowned upon. This is mostly because of the level at which religious institutions are highly regarded. However, without being conscious of it, the effects of religious doctrines have more or less shaped and affected the lives of the individuals involved. One of the worst things that can happen to such individuals is being unable to break out from the circle.
Technically, it shouldn’t be news. Eye service is one of the most common things you will experience in a lot of churches. In fact, you shouldn’t be surprised. Imagine being in a workplace. There’s the bossy one, the overdoer and the eye service people. Don’t be shocked that things like this are happening in the church.
They’re Humans Anyway
Forget about the gist that they are supernatural men of God. Also, try not to read this and conclude that I am blasphemous. I’m honestly of the belief that if you take this seriously, you would be disappointed. We tend to look at them in such high regard that we almost always forget they are still humans. Technically, you’re going to be putting yourself in a lot of mess if you forget this fact. This is typically the only reason why a lot of people in this circle take advantage of people. Just like hypnosis, they are able to spot your weak parts and act upon it.
Focus On Yourself
If you’re looking for answers, it’s best to look for them yourself. Relying on someone else’s experience may not cut out for you. Make sure that you have your own personal interpretations to the religious scriptures and act upon the core ones. As crazy as it sounds, you may be misled by a lot of statements made by your religious leader. This is why it’s necessary that you’re careful. I have shared below a little experience a friend of mine and I have had. Have a great day!
