Inoculated?

I am not a fan of immunizations. The many reasons merit a post about the facts and fallacies of what has become a multi-billion dollar industry. The way immunizations are supposed to work is that the body is given a small dose of a weakened organism that causes a certain disease, enabling your body to build a defense system against the real infection.

Applying this principle to the spiritual realm, I observe that this is what happens when a person has just enough religion to build immunity to the joy and reality of a deep, vital and life-changing relationship with the living God.

The Bible calls this type of inoculation a religious spirit; a weakened, ineffective and deceptive version of the real thing. When it comes to a relationship to Christ, I want to get boosted into the realm of the unseen reality, where the law is love and the fruit is love, peace and joy.

May you meet God in the beauty of this day and know the fullness of His power and love toward you. It’s personal.

So true.
I love your equating religious spirits with inocculations...I'm not a fan of either!

I had to read that several times to figure out what you were saying. I am in a fog today. I like the post though. Sometimes too the inoculation dosn't work and you get the flu anyway. I keep digging deeper in hopeing for a total transformation.
