I feel like a major problem in the Body of Believers these days is the fact that they tend to let the world get them down. They tend to say, in essence, "Why try swimming against an impossible tide?". Or, in the case of a psychotic person, "Society has tried its best at raising, and even changing this person. It apparently failed, so why keep trying?". Or worse still, "Society has tried, time and time again, to try to create something good, yet it always fails. So why try to succeed when so many others have failed?"
Note: this is a blog post I wrote on my My Opera blog before they shut the service down, so this is somewhat dated. I wrote it around November or December of 2013. I decided to port it to my new blog because it isn't public on the internet anywhere right now.
