Do You Want a Guru?

People in general always want a guru, a parent figure they can release responsibility to. Believers do have a heavenly Father. Jesus is the Savior, but not a guru. Jesus sends His Spirit and guides us, but He does not absolve us of responsibility or freewill. He gives us His Word, but we must obey it. He gives us things to believe about our new self in Christ, but we must believe them. Cult gurus take over your mind, so you “don’t have to“ grapple with the mess and pain and responsibility of reality of being human. See the movie HOLY SMOKE, where Kate Winslet’s character tries to get rid of the pain of being human by allowing herself to be controlled by a guru. It doesn’t end well, and she finally wakes up. — CS
