Knowing yourself in church is impossible

31 Mar

In order to decipher your daily circumstances and detect anything unusual in your life, you have to know yourself. The Enemy is constantly at task to bring us down, sensing subtle attack after subtle attack each tailor-made for each of us. Often, these attacks come with lies about ourselves and others.

When you know yourself and are confortable in it, you see these lies and set-ups clear as day. Because your foundation is fixed.

When I was an active member of thr church (Catholic then adventist), I had to give up/hide a lot of things. Even to myself : love of fashion and art in general, curiosity, ambition, interest for societal issues and such. That’s what I like. But whenver I saw any interest in something “worldly” I had a hard time accepting it and I was in a constant inner fight to hide, to change or just mourn about it.

This prevented me from knowing myself in a secure way. So when demons came to torment and mislead with their lies and intrusive thoughts about (myself particularly), I fell right for it because I couldn’t say “Hmm… I have that thought in my mind… that’s not of me to think that. I won’t pay much attention to it.” and thus stay relaxed.

In church, by these constant urges to change yourself with your own strength, prayers and ritualistic acts such as reading the Bible, going to mass or tithing, you are obviously not encouraged neither to be yourself or to be honest and acceptant if yourself and others.

They mistake denial of the flesh as denial of the self which is who you are ; which leads to useless self-doubt, self-righteousness, self-hatred and worst of all, complete defeat in front of demonic torment through passivity.

Truth is, we are sinners. We are in the world and unless God touches us, we are going to love the things of the world. That’s it.

If you are coming out of church and want to come out of your shell of religiosity to know yourself to resist the devil successfully, contact Pastor Pam, our leader at rescueonfb@icloud.com or by telephone at 888-818-1117.
