Religion – Today’s Opiate

Opiate – any medicine which induces rest or inaction.

Religion is the opiate of today. Religion is a narcotic. It’s meant to calm you down; causing rest or inaction.

Everything in culture is threatening to be ripped from you, and the Church is in a coma.

Is the Church’s intention just sit in a pew, or lay in a hammock, and ride out the years we have left?

If that’s the goal of life, I don’t want any part of it.

I’m 66 years old. I may have 14 years left to be active before I’m 80 years old. I don’t want to just exist. I want to do, for Jesus sake.

Many of you watching Coach Dave Live have a self-absorbed life. Your entire existence is built around your desire to be comfortable. Year after year, as you sit around in your religiously-induced opiate, the culture steals your children or grandchildren’s souls and future.

If you are fine with that, then keep walking into local churches to get another dose of opiates, and stay passive. Otherwise, be transformed and live.
