Our two recent podcasts on the Culture of Control inspired a host of listener feedback. Wayne goes back through some of the letters and blog postings to see more subtle ways control is often exercised, and how our need to feel in control makes us prime targets for those who want to control our lives, even with the most altruistic of motives. Those who think themselves better than the people around them will use whatever power they have at their disposal to make others do what they think best and results in the abuse of power we see in government as well as religion. Only those who are willing to risk what it means to trust Jesus as their only security will find themselves free from the control of others and be able to live in the world as a blessing to others, neither using them for our gain or seeking control over them.
