DAY 6

5TH STAGE – THE POLITICAL STAGE OF DISLOYALTY

When a person becomes political, he tries to involve others in his ideas and philosophies. Politicians operate on the power of people’s opinions. Many politicians cannot tell the truth because they want to please people. What people think and say is what concerns them most.

When a person is becoming disloyal he tries to involve other people in his treacherous ideas. He wants to gather a following and make people believe that he has identified a real problem that must be addressed. This is exactly what Absalom did.

Absalom was hurt (offence stage), then he said nothing for two years (passive stage). He then became unduly analytical of David’s policies (critical stage). Now he began to involve other people in his disloyal thoughts.

And Absalom said unto him, See, thy matters are good and right; but there is no man deputed of the king to hear thee. 2 Samuel 15: 3.

When someone becomes political he wants to involve others in his train of thought. You see, the more people that you can involve in something controversial, the more confidence you will gain. Disloyal people have an insidious way of discussing the shortcomings of their leaders.

They ask questions like, “How did you find the service today? I thought it was a bit dry.” They even come up with Scriptures. “As a Bible based church, don’t you think we should have some miracles?”

“Do you think our pastor is as anointed as he was last year?” “Have you noticed that a lot of people are leaving the church?” “I think that our Pastor travels a bit too much. Don’t you?”

These questions are used as bait for unsuspecting Christians. They drag innocent members into analysis of issues that are “above” them.

…neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. Psalm 131:1

Gradually they are able to spread their dissenting feelings to a group of gullible Christians.

Receive the spirit of loyalty.
