Jesus is your friend and your advocate.
He cares about your freedom and well-being.
„Come to me ! Whoever carries a heavy burden … I will give you peace and help you!“ (Mt 11:28)

Religious systems have their special dynamic. They reward submission to their ideological norms with money, influence and job security. Often they are mere clubs with the function to stir the emotions. Such clubs train their members to react with hostility on the attempt to examine when something arises that is questionable or perceived to be destructive. Due to the emotional dependance they create with this it often seems to be impossible to advise members of clearly recognizable dangers because of partial information or abuse of power. They will react either with indifference or with indignation on reports of even severe damage. The demand of the apostle Paul that believers are members of one body and should protect each other from damage (1Cor 12) remains parts of the theology of course – in form of dishonest propaganda.
There must be an open and honest exchange of information in Christian faith communities in order to avert such grievances. But it often does not exist. The state should make a law demanding a clearing up concerning destructive side-effects. But fact is: until today it grants faith communities the privilege of coercion to hurt and to intimidate people „at their own discretion“ by their theology. Many people ignore and excuse this.
Here you will find here enlightening information useful to protect yourself and which you will possibly not get in your „faith environment“.
