Yesterday I told someone my exciting news of What God had done (I was so full of Joy) and they gave me this dark evil look and tried to straighten me out with their big bible knowledge! What? so you are not happy for me? I have JOY PEACE and righteousness today! God’s kingdom! and you are not happy for me? Why is that?
The spirit of religion has a very ugly face. When you have joy in the Lord it wants to correct you, and point a withered finger at you and scold you. If you get closer to Jesus and you didn’t do it their way they will try to straighten you out.
Religion does terrible things to people and does not win anyone over to Christ. it makes people act like a know it all self-important bag of wind, and nobody is inspired to be closer to Jesus because of those who act like angry stodgy wind bags!
Does Jesus love them? Sure, but they won’t receive it. they are far too full of themselves and what they think they know! -Laura Grace
