Are you addicted to your theology?

“Addicted to Theology” cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward

I help people break their theology habit.

It is natural and normal to be addicted to our theology, to our beliefs, to our thoughts.

The first step to freedom is recognizing this addiction. The next step is to do something about it. It shouldn’t be embarked upon unless you’re serious.

The hardest part is when you stop using. The withdrawals can be terrible.

It helps to have support. This is what we do at The Lasting Supper. Come join us. I’ll introduce you personally.

    Lol Dvaid another brilliant cartoon,

    This time I think I am laughing at myself for some of the things I adhered to strongly (and can at least still be tempted to adhere to) either of my own volition or through cultural influences. It’s silly to do so and/or give into that temptation. It’s a healthy reminder to hold onto theology, beliefs and thoughts lightly.

    Of course there is a comfort in our assumptions and presuppositions. Naturally we are attached to that comfort and adverse to anything that threatens it. Broadening horizons requires that we accept at least some degree of discomfort if we are to break free from social programming.

    In order to do so then, we need to find security and confidence in something else. Without that, what is there to encourage us to let go of our thoughts if needed?

    I am reading a book called Mystery of Emptiness & Love by Domo Geshe Rinpoche, and in the first chapter it says “The purpose of this book is to help you uncover the view that is holding you, rather than the view you are holding”. I think that applies here.

    Love the Cartoon, sadly it’s true in far to many ways, even in my life. People>Theology.

    “…Our argument may be that we humans are created with free will and that we make our decisions. If this is so and God is all knowing, He knows what choices we are going to make ; therefore, He did create us knowing He will be sending you and me (sinners) to hell.” The above from the book ” Faith or Reason” jives so well with Love the Cartoon.
