In a recent comment, it was noted that Pinecrest Academy [a K-12 school in Atlanta with a shrinking population] will host eight members of the Movement dedicated to offering spiritual direction to the student body. With this ongoing unreformed reform allowed by the Church, it is hard for many to trust the hierarchy, since it would seem that the well-being of the flock isn't always the priority. "Neptune" followed with this insight:
The reason it is hard to figure out or make sense of the Church is the wake of LC/RC is because people do not want to believe that the whole purpose of the mess is to invert the person and the Church,
LC turns everthing inside out--tradition shows Christ dragging souls out of hades. The LC teaches people they will drag others to Heaven (alas, they cannot drag themselves into Heaven, so note that no one can drag another.
LC inverts the internal forum and makes people dependent on feedback--not a well-formed conscience but on constant external feedback (that's why they need so many counselors).
People who had been sucked into the LC/RC have the worst time with this simple key because it requires them to admit they were wrong. That's hard to do. Especially for smart people.
Even if they get to the point of admitting the error, they don't want to admit that they spent so much of their life abetting this evil institution. It's OK. Christ can drag people out of Hades, so He can drag you out of that hell, too.
This last point is the worst of their inversions. Christ says: sine Mihi nihil potestas. The corollary is that without Christ you can only do evil - like drag people to hell. I say this to illustrate the demonic trick of the LC/RC inversion. First, they put you on a quest for perfection. Second, they deform you to be reliant on them and not Christ. Third, they make progress your work alone (not Christ's). Fourth, they trick you to think you are Christ.
Obviously, that's the error of Eden played out into a system and process. To undo this chain of errors is difficult on the psyche of a person who had noble intent all along. But, that's what the mess is.
It's been repeated often in this forum that the only way out of this Movement is on your knees. Only by finding the humility to embrace the humiliation of having been suckered by MM can one being to change his or her perspective. Since pride was such an important element in our formation ("you are the elites, the world depends on your fidelity!") we are more wired than most to reject the notion that we fell for a cult (and a paederast, and a charlatan, and a liar).
Humility is Christ-like; thinking that the world needs a particular person (other than Christ) or group (other than Holy Mother Church herself) is prideful and wrong. Judas tried to tip God's hand with his own recipe for salvation, and it didn't end well. Nothing is indispensible but the Blood of Christ.
