Jesus told us to beware of the leaven of the Pharisees (hypocrisy) and Herod (political power).
Churches and individuals that have been influenced by this “leaven” will demonize anyone who doesn’t agree with their beliefs. They begin to believe that “the other” is evil and that they are the enemy. It creates a culture of fear and distrust of anyone who is not a part of their group or their political party.
When religious hypocrisy merges with political power it can cause people to lose their soul and derail people from entering the Kingdom of Love.
The road to the Kingdom of Love is narrow. I’ve left “Christian City” behind and I am on a journey to find it, as it is where I want to live.
