Healing and Freedom

written by Stephen Arterburn & Jack Felton

The military uses labeling to enhance the “killability” of the enemy. The last thing a military leader wants a soldier to think about is that the person in his rifle sights may be a father of five little girls who will starve without a daddy. The enemy is given an ethnic label in an effort to dehumanize him. The soldier is better able to kill one hundred of them than one father or husband. Religious addicts use the technique well, and when they use rumor and innuendo to kill the reputation of a sincere critic, other followers are more apt to go along if a label can dehumanize the dissenter. The purpose of labeling is to separate and divide…..Disqualification by labeling hurts the victims and allows persecutors to continue in their toxic faith. It is sheer poison.

Love Jesus, love my family and love life! Knowing Whose you are and who you are in Jesus. I quit being a law woman; so I could be God's woman. See Galatians 2:19-21 MSG
