Religion, Politics, and Economics.
All three are man made institutions.
All three cause mental turmoil.
All three cause anxiety.
Simply put these three are the root cause of separation from God. Each of these cause us as humans to take a roll that is outside our natural nature we were created to be.
We were never intended to be superior to one another and judgmental of each others actions like the religious system would have us be. Many of the actions of this system is in contrary to the way that God taught us to be through Jesus. By following man made rules to how to worship and act will not get us in God's grace. Salvation can not be earned as many of the religion systems would have us believe.
Our politics cause us to force our views on others in order to gain power over other people. With the gain in power it causes pride and independence to prevail over the entire land that is to be governed. It causes people to put their trust in themselves first.
Economics is perhaps one of the biggest of all these. This one causes people to create a god for themselves. It causes all kinds of mental turmoil that is unmatched be the other three. When this god lets the people down, people are willing to sacrifice their own living soul for it.
Still all three of these are just man made institutions. They separate us from the very God that created us. The God that wants to have a relationship with us. We can not have that relationship if we are honoring the trinity of terror rather than the God that calls out to us. If we love our rules, power and money rather than God and the reason he created us, then we may as well eat and drink for tomorrow we die. It is time that we honor the gift we have been given and start to have a relationship with God rather than the trinity of terror. As Jesus taught us in the gospel of Matthew, it is simple to have the relationship.
34 ¶But when the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered themselves together.
35 One of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him,
36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?"
37 And He said to him, "`YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.´
38 "This is the great and foremost commandment.
39 "The second is like it, `YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.´
40 "On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets."
If we as Christians started to put more emphasis on these two commandments, then maybe the trinity of terror would not have as big of a grip on the church as it has. If we love like Christ then we become the bride that he is returning for and the trinity of terror will be defeated. I am interested in your thoughts on the subject.
