Fanaticism

When you choose religion,
there are consequences.
And it’s easy to become entangled,
with so many strings attached.

For at the altar,
a puppet master awaits you,
and his understudy, too.

Oh, did I forget to mention,
that you’re the puppet?

Commentary: The devil tricks the wannabe believer (groupie) to turn a beautiful spiritual experience (music worship) into a depraved physical one (mosh pit).

“Hysteria is an audiovisual contagion. You have to see and hear someone exhibiting symptoms in order to find yourself replicating those symptoms. See it enough, and it becomes you. This is hysteria’s essential and most terrifying threat: Anyone is susceptible.” By: Nashyiela Loa Zavala

“Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.” Bible, Romans 12:2

“These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion, with their self-imposed worship, their false humility and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.” Colossians 2:23
