The theology of blessings alienates people that are struggling. Whether it is health, financial, emotional, relational or any other difficulty beyond our control, this belief excludes us when times are tough. The wake of damage this idea leaves behind is staggering.

Is the belief that when you are right with God, when He is pleased with what you are doing He will then pour out blessings on you. This is a widely held belief throughout Christianity and is taught and or supported by more church leaders and organizations than not.

I shared this poem a few years ago and love it so much I wanted to post it again for those that may have missed it.
Jesus shut within a Book
Is hardly worth a passing look;
Jesus shut within a creed
Is a fruitless Lord indeed.
But Jesus in the hearts of men
Shows His tenderness again.

Is the biggest most believed lie we’re presented with every day. Isolation is one of the enemy’s most effective tools. Don’t listen, don’t entertain the lie and don’t be afraid to share your struggles. God is here with you and for you and He has folks around that want to be a part of His love for you.
