Church goers by the millions live in fear all their lives. They think that they must "obey" those who pretend that they have authority over their lives. Preachers who stand in pulpits and who speak with a sense of authority or with a bombastic personality tend to intimidate church goers. In reality this is nothing short of spiritual or religious abuse. Why people subject themselves to these religious control-mongers is quite amazing. I can guarantee that anyone who exits a church and stops attending, will not be given a ticket and have to pay a fine. Nor will their eternal life and salvation have so much as any bearing upon not attending.
Virtually every preacher who stands in a pulpit thinks his or her authority is founded and based upon certain verses in the Bible. Many women think Joyce Meyers who preachers on television is a voice that speaks for God. Folks, Joyce Meyers is a multi-millionaire and lives a life of splendor and luxury that millions would envy, and all she does is in the name of "Jesus Christ." Yeah sure! There are many television preachers who live a life of absolute luxury and all because gullible and naive human beings send them $money.
Television is overflowing with frauds who use the name of "Jesus Christ" and it includes such "ministries" as "It's Supernatural" to "Manna-Fest" to "World Harvest" to virtually every preacher on television. The pure motive of all television preachers is self-vanity, self-importance and your $money (yeah sure, become a partner and laugh while your bank account goes broke). One old man on television plays a guitar and seems to have a grocery store shelf of canned goods in the back ground, while he sings songs. What part does music play on human emotions and whip people into a hypnotic trance to send $money to these clowns?
Of course all Saturday Sabbath groups think they are privileged and that they have an "insight" about "God truth" that all others do not have. The Mormons and the Jehovah Witnesses think the same thing, as do the Roman Catholics, the Baptists, the Pentecostals, the Charismatics and all other groups on planet earth. Perhaps each group should take a challenge and the Roman Catholics should go to a dozen different other types of churches for a few years, and perhaps the Saturday Sabbath folks should attend a few Sunday going groups for a couple of years and expand their horizon and learn something that they never knew or understood before.
So shallow and narrow-minded are church goers that they have no clue of just how big and overwhelming life is. So you attend the church of Rod Meredith? Why not exit his highly controlled group and go elsewhere, and even become so radical that you attend a charismatic church group, or perhaps a Baptist church or a Methodist church or a Roman Catholic Church or a private house church group??? Afraid? Fearful? Why?
