In this cartoon I drew a demon whispering into a woman’s ear, “Question your beliefs!” On the other side an angel whispers into her ear, “Question your beliefs!”
Deconstruction: Demon or Angel
It depends on what voice you listen to.
It also depends on how you interpret that voice.
For some people in your life, it’s a bad thing that you’re changing. To them, the fact that you’re questioning your beliefs is a sign that you’re spiritually weak, fall to temptation, backsliding, giving in to evil and giving up on God.
For some people in your life, questioning your beliefs means they can no longer influence you, manipulate you, or control you. If they can keep demons and Hell real to you, then they can convince themselves and you that they have those weapons in their arsenal to scare you into conformity.
Hell and demons were a major player for keeping me in line. Unholy referees.
Because some people don’t like how questioning your beliefs concludes: change!
But if you calm yourself and trust yourself, then to you, the fact that you’re questioning your beliefs is actually a sign that you’re spiritually maturing, growing, and becoming independent.
It really does come down to you being confident in yourself.
It really does come down to you trusting yourself, that you know what’s best for you, that you don’t need to be told what or what not to believe, and that you can decide how to be spiritual.
You no longer need an overseer with their beliefs and fear tactics managing your spiritual life.
The truth is, it’s not a demon or an angel telling you to question your beliefs.
It’s your own Self!
Just listen to yourself!
