Toxic Faith – A Religious Spirit

Those of you who are RSS readers will need to either visit the blog today, or click on the link below for text of today’s post (and yesterday’s for that matter).   J. Lee Grady is editor of Charisma Magazine and one of my favorite columnists.   Here he addresses the issue of people who have “a religious spirit;” and eight warning signs if it might apply to you!

  1. Jerry,

    Your comment showed you to be guilty of Lee’s points #1, 4, 6 and 8. As a result I could not bring myself to allow it here.

    You have the very religious spirit Lee is writing about and frankly, it’s not very attractive. It won’t draw people to Christ. It will probably push people away.

    Come back when you’ve learned how to speak in love or consider the possibility that posting comments to blogs may not be your ideal ministry.

  2. I commend you for your courage to write this and for bringing illumination to a sensitive topic. I found it helpful.

    With sincere gratitude,

    R. Emerson
