“You are loved,” you are told. Well, not so actually; you are loved and valued as long as you do what He (God ) says or what We say because God told us to say it to you. Sound familiar? This pattern is not unique. It is also the same trick you find in an abusive relationship. So, I'm guessing God taught us all well.
