    It has really taken me a while to come to grips with this despite leaving for good 5 years ago. I wanted to give people the benefit of the doubt and not see what was really happening. I don’t hate anyone. in fact, I see better why people bother. But it doesn’t engender respect but pity.

    First, I kept seeing the church/denomination hopping –because one must go to church. Then begins another long spanse of time figuring out the hard way that didn’t work. In the meantime we must be regaled with how wonderful the new place is. Sigh.

    Second, the culture is so insane people are willing to give up discernment to be around what seems sane to them. After all, it’s voluntary but the surrounding culture isn’t if one works around the insanity, daily. I suspect some churches will grow as the culture continues to insult anyone who dares to disagree with the insane PC culture.

    For me, I don’t think the institutions can be fixed. I think the same way about public schools, universities, gov agencies, etc as I do churches. They will have to whither and die due to drastic circumstances however it comes. Totalitarianism has overtaken all aspects of our culture. Competence is frowned upon and one must be PC and ignorant to operate successfully within them. Totalitarian Niceness rules the day. Not truth. And what I mean by truth is not the big overarching truth but the everyday little truths that are purposely ignored or shamed. Such as presumption of innocence or due process. Such as a small con nice people decide to ignore.

    It’s not worth it.
