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
“Because people are gullible. Because people are easily influenced when you dangle materialism in their faces. Because people are unlearned. The Bible says in ‘II Timothy 2:15 that we are to study to shew ourselves approved so we can rightly divide the Word of truth, but many people don’t and won’t do that.’ It may be easier to just listen to the pulpit then read a verse at night and in the morning than to actually study. But that also means it is easier for you to be deceived. And those false ministers who bring a fake gospel are skillful in manipulating scripture while making it sound good and feeding hearts filled with mammon —or even those with legitimate need.” Excerpt from: Black & White Christians Beware of Pulpit Money Changers and Con-Artists.
“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
