Forfeiting Souls

[[[ Part of the series on How Child Protective Services opposes the Teachings of Christ ]]]

“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?
Mark 8:36

Five verses earlier, Jesus is explaining to his disciples about what is coming up next. Peter does not like the way God is doing things and tells Jesus this privately. That instigates the comeback that everyone remembers, “Get behind Me, Satan!” He then summons the rest of the disciples and the crowd and begins expanding on how man’s interests are not the same as God’s interests. Jesus takes this directly to the focal point of the eternal consequences.

Most CPS policies are based on man’s interests. Many are forfeiting their souls because of it. Lamentably, they take others with them.

The correlation between the Pharisees of Jesus’ day and present-day CPS has been well established over the past twenty-odd posts. Their veneer of righteousness, their world view, and their cock-sure self-assessment that they are doing noble deeds whilst they destroy others makes then two of a kind.

With this inclusion, Jesus expands his stern warning beyond the institution of religion and into the politics of civil government. CPS now stands for Control and Power Sluts. It certainly is not about protecting children.
