My mother taught me when I was young that a group of people who preached to you as if they’re ambassadors of Christ, yet, works to pull you from your family, society, social culture or acquaintance; thus, love ones & friend, are really a cult.
What does this mean? What was she trying to teach me?
The Church as the Kingdom of God & the Bride of Christ puts people in the world. They are wise a serpents, yet innocent a lambs, nevertheless they are among the Gentiles to win them over, as many as possible. Christians are witness of the light; they reveal to the lost the Word of God as well as the Spirit of God Himself. They preach and reveal who Jesus Christ was, and is plus Christians themselves are Sons & Daughters of God.
We are not as an island in the world. We shine as lighthouses in the body of water prepared to cast out life boats to save and rescue those who are searching and looking upon the distance.
(REFLECTION: II Corinthians 10:1)
Depression is a mental illness. We are neither happy, nor healthy while we are lonely. One can be within a crowd, but still feel alone. How do we connect to others among the human race? It is an art noteworthy of imitating; the ability to know ourselves among people within the same manner as to know ourselves in the mirror. However, it’s spiritual disciple to be able to find space in your heart & life to allow The Holy Spirit to grow and move. One’s solitude is sacred. It is not withdrawn from the eyes of humans. However, it is independent plus holy as one who stands alone among an army as a flag representing a nation in a spiritual war of humanity.
