Why do you hate the person you idolize? All feelings are from the Devil. Let desperation happen. Stop fighting with the Devil.
Church with Jesse Lee Peterson, Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023 – Lesson from this past Men's Forum: Don't claim "I" in the emotions and identities that you go through. (A man's upset his bike was stolen. Stay out of your head.) // Lots of great feedback on the Biblical Question: Why do you hate the person you idolize? (Jesse answers a question about love versus what most people have: God's love makes you be in the world, but not of it.) //
Jesse says people idolized Christ the same way they idolize one another today. The Devil is in the mind. But God's burning bush is inside us. We use God's gifts for evil. Sin is playing God; it's not the vices. //
Do you ever feel desperation? Let it happen. It's already done. The Devil does not want you to be still. Count it all joy. The light will destroy the darkness. Stop fighting with the Devil in others; instead, get involved. You don't feel anxiety; it's an illusion from the spirit of the Devil — you're possessed. //
New Biblical Question: Why don't you let go of self-confidence? // Happy Easter! //

Christ's followers idolized him; that's why they turned on him.
