TAKEAWAYS FROM THIS EPISODE

Have you ever felt drawn back to your performance-based religion, even when you knew it was toxic and false? Ever wonder why people go back to abusive situations they know are bad for them? In this series of podcasts Joel and Lynn explore how performance religions create dependency, what are the triggers that create the attraction, and what are some of the lies that leave us vulnerable. They then provide personal and biblical insight, as well as practical steps for protecting yourself so you can experience a grace that heals your past, redeems your present, and gives hope for your future.

SCRIPTURAL REFERENCES

  • Diversity in the body (1 Corinthians 12)
  • Man and woman become one (Mark 10:8)

QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE

The brokenness of life will trigger feelings of hurt, abandonment and loneliness. We gravitate to something that will ease that pain. Performance-based religions are masterful at providing at least temporary or superficial solutions to these feelings. ~Joel

Boundaries give us security ~Joel

True spiritual freedom comes when you submit yourself to God and now you’re free to act within His realm of boundaries.

I don’t think of family anymore as only biological. God has brought family into my life that are not biological but believers. Open your mind to allow God to replace wonderful relationships in your life. ~Lynn
