At least once a week I have to talk myself down from getting so pissed off at previous experiences with Christian leaders telling me thinking/learning about certain ideas “is dangerous.”
This is a cyclical track built by centuries of manipulative gas lighting done by inept leaders who wanted to keep their flock where they could see them; where they could continue being served, fed, and praised by them.
If anyone ever says something you’re reading, learning from, thinking about, is “dangerous,” lose that friend as fast as you can. They want to own you.
I challenge you to let them know how much of an asshole they’re being, too, even and especially if they aren’t aware they’re being controlling behind a mask of purity and good intention.
