Religion and Politcs are equally dangerous as each seeks to control through the avenue of sameness.
Mark 8:15 Then He charged them, saying, “Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the leaven of Herod.”
Yahshua (Jesus) warned His disciples about the influence of both the religious and political sectors. Religion and politics necessitate and work toward sameness. They are the vessels in our culture by which individuals are amassed and corralled into conformity – whether for the sake of convenience or because of the fact that “different” often means uncomfortable. One of the greatest dangers of the conservative pursuit of sameness is stunted growth. Because when we are unwilling to change, it might seem to keep us safe, but what it actually does is prevent us from growing and being transformed.
