There are two (at least) dangerous lies circulating society.
You are worthy.
You are enough.

Religion at its core is the packaging of what was sacred and intimate and creating a system of it. Religion will never have the power to heal, just as fig leaves will never have the power to truly cover.
Religion is a man-made institution that seeks to categorize and control people. YAH (God) never meant for us to have or follow a religion.
Wholeness is God’s highest call for us. The work He has begun is to that end.
A lot of the time, when we see sin, we slap a morality bandage on it to “cure” it. This won’t do. Where there is sin, there is a need for healing.
There are some things we believe because they’re true. Then, there are things we believe because we’d prefer to believe them. This is proof that we take our perceptions of God into conversations like these and refuse to expand our view of Him.
I found the reason I was trying to be “relevant” was not because I wanted people to accept God, but I wanted people to accept me.
