Are you suffering from the...spiritual-drain-syndrome-disease...if you are, consider changing what you believe the bible says.
The religious-gospel is a performance trap that has befuddled the minds of believers into the confused thinking that their "spiritual-worth" is based on "religious-performance-worthiness." This leads to all kinds of ungodliness including...a religious-superiority-complex...judgementalism...condemnation...expectation keeping...religious conformation...and hypocrisy...this kind of action is Gospel stifling and a God turnoff!
The agenda-expectation-keeping of performance-trap-religion drains us of spiritual vitality that is needed for grace-life-living because of spiritual dis-ease!
The religious-performance-trap gospel is exactly what Jesus was talking about freeing us from when he said;
"Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light." (Matthew 11:29-30).
Sadly, for to many believers, following Jesus is determined by following man-inspired-interpretations of a book that is reduced to a rule-book of do's and don'ts to-do or not-to-do.
The bible was never meant to be...a to-do or not-to-do religious-rule-book...a denomination-making-book...a denomination-naming-book...a denomination-doctrine-making-book...a-money-extorting-book...the believer's-supreme-authority-book...the Living-Word-book...a Sunday-go-meeting-book...a preacher-sermon-gathering-book...a religious-elitist-quoting-book...a fear-mongering-book...a judging-of-people-book...a sinner-condemning book...a hell-fire-torture-chamber-people-burning-book.
The bible is meant to be God's love-letter-to-man-book...a to-Jesus-pointing-book...and the good-news-book of Jesus the Living-Word-of-God...our good-news Savior, saving mankind because the GOSPEL is the GOOD-NEWS of our Loving Father God reconciling humanity unto Himself!
The religious performance doing book-trap is a do and don't gospel that is no Gospel at all.
