Organizaional Religion Should Not Take Your Personal Values Away

I re-read a statement in a book on leadership that I read a couple months ago. “When someone joins an organization, that organization’s values eventually take precedence over the individuals values.” I believe that this is why people are so afraid of organized religion and it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ…it may be found in the culture of the church for sure but it is not found in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

I can understand why organized religion would be so threatening to people. This is why it is so important to study the doctrine and teachings of the church to understand what the correct principles are that are taught. And it is important to understand that you are there for a relationship to God first, yourself second, and other people second.

A true religion would invite you to find out what your true values are. That is different, hugely different than having your values modified by the organization. And this is what the gospel of Jesus Christ does and why it gives you freedom because it takes you to a place where those things that cannot be seen with human eyes can be seen with spiritual eyes and lets you see the truth and it is the truth that sets you free! 🙂

About Christa-Ann Faith Godsdaughter

There was a time when I thought that I spoke out from a minute corner of the world. Speaking about the shadows and darkness I found myself in. Then there was a time when I thought that I shouted with the fury of a mother pleading for help to protect her babes. There came a time of introspection and circumstance that had me realizing that I must reach out for myself...if I was to help those I felt I had been sent here to guide...meaning my children, or so I thought. The time has now come where I understand that I speak literally for all creation in all time and all dimensions and all thoughts, past present and future. This would apply to earth and its substance but in no way would be limited to this planet or even this galaxy. What I have to share is for all creation. ALL, THE WHOLE OF CREATION, IN ITS ENTIRE CIRCUMFERENCE OUT FROM GOD AND BACK ROUND TO HIM AND BEYOND!
