Do you wish to be a god ?

20 Feb

In today’s society, we see a lot of competition and aspirations to be prettier, skinnier, stronger, healthier, wealthier, and not be like the average person.

Some people spend tons of money to get the closest to immortality and what they see as perfection. They want to be gods.

In religious rhetoric, all this is futile superficial worldly preoccupations. So what do they do ? They act like they are above all that by wearing voluntarily ugly clothes, not wearing makeup and demonizing people who do “”indulge”” in such behavior.

These people also want to be gods. By pretending to be above human superficial nature of loving to be approved, they really wish to ascend to God-like status. At least in the eyes of the church.

While it is pretty impossible and burdensome to crave this world’s perfection standards, it is as prideful to pretend to be above it. It is false guilt. Religious false guilt.

As a former catholic then adventist, I hid my body image issues and felt bad for caring about my looks. I threw away clothes that I liked, stopped caring about myself. I stopped being myself just to be “not like other humans”. Well, I am human.

Because our human nature is sinful and imperfect. We all have hidden desires, and if we are not born again it is just going to be ! And torturing yourself to approach what church tells you is God’s standards WITHOUT waiting for His Spirit to bring you to Jesus and change you in His Image by His timing is just impatient and as proud as men chasing immortality.

Do you have or had secret desires of being like a god out of impatience too ? Feel free to comment. If you want to be set free from any burden related to that, you can set up an appointment with Pastor Pam via phone ( 888-818-1117 ) or via email at psmontheweb@yahoo.com
