If you’ve never been involved in the market-place of organized religion you’ve missed something very unusual and at times extremely bizarre. You may also be very fortunate not to have been taken for a ride by many who run such religious groups.
If you’ve been, or presently are, an active participator in a particular faith group that expects a high level of commitment from you, then please do read on; it might just save your sanity somewhere up ahead.
I’ve been there and have the tee-shirt to prove it. Read my roller-coaster story ‘The Prodigal Prophet’ to understand where I’m coming from. I’ve painfully discovered that following Yeshua and giving one’s life over to a zealous religious group may not be synonymous.
The Wizard of Oz meets The Pilgrim’s Progress. Tired of religion? – then read on! A captivating autobiography of religious disillusionment, burnout and Divine Love.
Bumping into the Divine during the’ Irish Troubles’ Dylan Morrison was blissfully unaware of the amazingly painful journey that lay ahead. Searching for a more radical approach to the God thing, he passed through various manifestations of the Charismatic world before becoming a ‘Prophet’ in an abusive international Shepherding group.
The sudden death of his infant son, Ben, became the catalyst for Dylan’s painful disillusionment with religion, replacing it with a deep interest in psychology and self-help philosophies.
Sixteen years later with the dust covered Bible in the attic and the ‘tongues’ long gone Dylan was reinvaded by Divine Love in two mystical encounters. Six months later suffering from nervous exhaustion Dylan was emotionally stripped bare. Healing slowly began with a revelation of the pain of psychological attachments and the sense of Presence at the bottom of the dark abyss.
Dylan believes that the spirituality and mysticism of Yeshua, the Nazarene holds the answers for those tired of religious dogma and presentational overkill. An amazing story of hope for those wounded by abusive religion and life’s tragedies.
