When you are in the fallen state, all you can do is rebel or conform. You still have the need for something to save you, so the way you do it is through the transference of loyalty, from God to one leader to another. From one guru to another. From one women to another. They give you the approval you seek because in that fallen state you can no longer HEAR the voice of truth within.
Thats what you have, even in the churches. Most of the ministers are hypocrites, they have the words but they don't have the Spirit. Once you transfer your loyalty to them, the teaching spirit within them teaches you, and you learn words, and knowledge which may be right, but you never return to the Spirit which is written on the heart. Your caught up with something or making an idol out of something, instead of returning to the Father. All the ego does is attach to images and idols! Everything you have been taught is only programming and regurgitation in the name of "good".
Even though you are becoming weak as hell, and more disillusioned, the group gives you approval that you are right, so you may never escape, and never really find salvation. Psychotic leaders understand exactly how this all works and for the pride of power, will use it against you, in the name of religion or whatever, to get something out of you, usually money. But you also get something out of them, REASSURANCE. The righteous ministers, who are the only one's sent by God, will not allow you to get caught up with them, and will point you back to the Father, the Kingdom of Heaven within. You can still get caught up with these righteous ministers, because of your immaturity and your inability to let go of false love. Then blame them when things don't go how you planned. Either way, you are responsible for you salvation, and finding your way back home.
