" The Tunnel Of Deception"
We, the Church, would say we want to develop healthy, mature, and generous servant leaders? The Bible is the authentic origin of love, truth, and grace. Why are we disconnected? Why are we going astray?
I am Renee M Beavers, a Whole-Person Plant-Based Lifestyle Strategist.
I teach the principles of prayer, fasting, and a Plant-Based Lifestyle. These principles have empowered me to overcome food addiction, serial dieting, and Lifestyle diseases. These principles have also produced habits that transformed my health and my relationships.
Why is the application of biblical principles forming a divide in the Church? Many churches I've attended seem to settle on tithing as the one universal principle. Tithing teaches us about money what fasting teaches about our appetites. I teach servant stewardship and that we only own our choices.
What if expecting an individual with an owner mindset to give and serve is unrealistic? An individual with an owner mindset doesn't see the need to serve others or give. Dear Church, are we leading our community into the Tunnel of Deception? I believe the answer is not deliberately. What is the "Tunnel of Deception"? It's a dark shady place where light, love, and truth are absent?
The individuals inside the Tunnel are powerless to lead each other out. Only the individual on the outside of the Tunnel has the power to lead others out. How is this connected to the body of Christ and biblical principles?
Christians and non-Christians alike have areas of our lives where we have been in or are in the Tunnel of Deception. We don't know what we don't know! Tunnels deceive us frequently, and some people stay in the "Tunnel of Deception" because it's convenient. Fear of the foreigner is a common trap. The Tunnel I am remaining on the outside and requesting others out is the "Appetite and Idinety Tunnels Of Deception."
I had a challenging childhood and a life filled with change and constant adjustments. My mess is my message. I am just like many of you looking for a way out. I live and teach servant steward and that we only own our choices. The body of Christ will continue to be just as overwhelmed by lifestyle diseases and broken relationships until we change. God calls for his children to love and lead the lost world around us to himself.
I will teach the next generation to change their mindset from king/ owner to servant/ steward. Join Us as we learn to live our lives with less regret.
