Podcast: The Transforming Power of Social Pressure
One of the arguments I faced countless times while leaving the message was the issue of living a “clean life”.
As per the experience of many, they testify to the transformation they experienced as they began following the message. Even growing up in a message church and struggling with “sin”, the message seemed to help them escape “the world” by it’s teachings. Despite realizing the error of Branhamism, this can feel conflicting and confusing. This is my viewpoint of why transformation is an expected result of social pressure, which the church thrives in creating. Also, it’s a positive if you can recognize positive benefits as a result of being a message believer. Some people do come from dark life circumstances; leaving the message doesn’t need to include dismissing positives.
