Understanding another person’s perspective does not obligate you to respect it. I can fully comprehend why you feel a certain way about something and still think your beliefs are asinine or dangerous. The idea that one must always respect other people’s beliefs simply because they hold them sincerely and fervently is itself a dangerous belief.
If you hear a lie over and over
again, you’ll probably start to
believe it’s true – even if you
know it isn’t. The ‘illusion of
truth’ suggests that when you
hear a statement repeated
frequently, your brain starts to
accept it as fact – even if you’re
aware of contradicting facts. Source
"Oh Lord forgive me. I should not have done that. I'm sorry."
"You are forgiven."
"Ugh. Lord forgive me, I'm so so sorry. I keep messing all this up, I'm trying so hard not to."
"You are forgiven. You are free."
"Lord I'm so tired. I'm so tired of wanting to do right and doing wrong instead. I'm so sorry."
"Come to Me, and I will give you rest."
"Lord I'm sorry. I don't know why I keep doing these things! I don't want to! I don't know what's wrong with me..."
"Nothing I have not already healed. Nothing that my Son's blood did not conquer. Nothing that is not already forgiven. Nothing that could ever keep you from me. Why won't you believe me? Come to Me."
