As I hung out in the waiting area of the third auto mechanic I had visited for my car issues, (story comes later), I happened upon a delightful read that I know will appeal to all of my readers, students and clients. This is THE book to read if you want to put your head in the sand, hide under the bed and pretend that only organized religion can heal all your woes. Don’t go to a therapist if you have any mental illness or issues, definitely don’t use any kind of alternative medicine in any way to heal yourself, and don’t think positively or think your thoughts create your experience in any way. No, it’s best to grab this book, get under that bed, surround yourself with guard dogs and firearms and live in the 1950s all over again.
The book is THE SEDUCTION OF CHRISTIANITY.
The back of the book reads, and I kid you not, “What are the dangers of the growing acceptance and practice of:
- positive and possibility thinking
- healing of memories
- self help philosophies
- holistic medicine”
I have images in my head of when electricity was invented. Did folks run in fear and claim it was from the devil? Did some still cling to the candle?
THIS is dangerous stuff and goes against everything I believe God is all about. This book got me going and upset for hours just flipping through it! What if you are mentally ill and need help? Of course we need to heal our memories. Better to walk around in trauma and pain? For me, God IS knowledge coming through to help me. That’s what is so beautiful.
I guess many of us are finally awakening and some of us prefer to just go back to sleep.
