Religiously Transmitted Diseases
finding a cure when faith doesn't feel right
by Ed Gungor
Do you feel like something is always wrong, that you can't seem to "get it right" in your relationship with God? Then you probably have a diseased faith - thankfully, there is way back to the innocence and freshness of the hour you first believed.
There are only two ways to approach faith: a human-centered approach, or a God-centered one. A human-centered approach rests on human effort and persistence-human "coulds" and "shoulds" It seems noble to work hard to secure godly, fruitful living. But a human-centered faith is fundamentally wrong and harmful. It is about human PERFORMANCE, which ultimately leaves people tired, oppressed and feeling distant from God. A God-centered faith, on the other hand, is refreshing, surprising and nourishing to the human soul. True freedom is found whenever we center our faith on the PERSON of God and not the PERFORMANCE of humankind.
