Having just spent his last two trips with people who are freshly coming out of extremely legalistic groups, Wayne takes on the Scriptures that were used to justify those environments and to bully people with fear and shame so they will follow the dictates of those who claim to be leaders. These Scriptures were meant to speak of relational realities that set us free to live in him, but when they are applied inside conformity-based systems they are easily twisted and bring great confusion and devastation. So Wayne takes a look at how Hebrews 13:17, Hebrews 10:25, Matthew 16:24, Romans 16:17, and I Corinthians 5:1-7 are misapplied to cause great harm while completely ignoring the Scriptures that would mitigate against this damage--Mark 10:42-43, Ephesians 4:11-12, Colossians 2:16-18, Mark 7:6-7, 14-15. Whenever we decide it is our mandate from God to make other people act the way we think they should act, we become partners with evil.
