I still want people deceived by the teaching of my former church to wake up. I feel like a cult is taking over American churches and I wish things could be different. At the same time I do not wish to be numb and cold in my knowledge. I cannot think of myself as better than those who are deceived, just blessed to have been pulled from it.
It doesn’t matter where I go, I could be on a vacation weekend or floating around facebook. I see the same kind of seeker friendly or spiritual formation churchiness everywhere. Many times a person stands up to speak and be an encouragement to a group…and uses a catch phrase. Often it seems like a pep rally on Oprah. That’s when I know a church goer has bought into the “bumper sticker” church. I sigh, and sometimes feel quite helpless.
So then I just wait. Sometime, it might be appropriate to tell a person the truth and point things out. I pray for an opportunity and hope to not get the “what ever are you talking about you space alien” look when I do share.
