THE CHURCH OF THE END-TIME ZOMBIES: A Guide to Religious Detox

Here is an excerpt:

The Religious Addict

What is addiction? A simple and concise definition is that it is enslavement to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that the cessation of the drug or substance causes severe trauma. It had been my experience in working for decades with addicts that a physical addiction can be controlled within 30 days. However, in the addiction field, the recovery period for the soul takes at least a year. The soul also known as the ego in psychoanalyst is quite mysterious. It consists of both the conscious and unconscious mind, the emotions, the personality and its disorders, perceptions, likes, dislikes and the will power. Consequently, addiction may start in the body but the real struggle to overcome it lies within our souls.

So too with the church addict. From 90 days to 6 months, perhaps a year, the church addict’s mind must be re-trained. False doctrines and practices that the churchgoer has believed in for decades must be challenged so that the soul can be renewed. As God Himself has compared false worship to prostitution or whoredom , I am not out of line in making a similar comparison. A church addiction can be compared to “good sex” with someone you know does not really love you. Simply put, you get hooked to the thrill and the feeling. Those of us who have never “been there and done that” wonder what the thrill is for a masochist.

Masochism from a psychiatric perspective is defined as a condition in which sexual gratification depends on suffering, physical pain and humiliation gained from despair, deprivation, and degradation. The perpetrator can be others or it can be self inflicted. Unfortunately, masochists are known to find pleasure in self denial and emotional pain.

So fallen angels and demons work behind the scenes as they use church leadership to implement religiosity without power. While the leadership verbally beats the zombie both up and then down, the deceptive strategy is to lull churchgoers into a false sense of security-to rationalize and justify their behavior by concluding that avid churchgoing is not only ‘the right thing to do,’ but that if they make the IC itself the center of their lives, they will please God and live fulfilling, blessed lives. How the Lord plays into this scenario is that “the rats” preach that the roaches or zombies will find Him by going to church every time the doors are opened.

When religious deception sets in, the zombie has already mistaken faith in God for faith in his religion and in his church. So they find shelter in both. Zombies become addicted to the feelings they experience out of manipulating people. After all, religion produces good feelings, prestige, self-worth, a sense of protection, as well as an opportunity to feel like they are in control, when in reality, they are being manipulated and controlled by the religion itself.[1]

One of the main purposes of the book “the Church of the End-time Zombies: A Guide To Religious Detox” is to prepare YOU to stand alone as the author did for 8 of the 11 years she has been out of organized religion. Once Pam Sheppard started the online Christian fellowship called RESCUE, she now has supportive friends from several American states and others from South Africa, Dubai, India, Antigua, Finland and Canada. A prolific writer, Pam’s books are really an outgrowth of her main passion: deliverance counseling and pastoring. So this book is a labor of love to all the people around the world that Pam would love to personally pastor, particularly those who have been damaged and deceived by religion as peddled by “the religious.”

Since she is without the resources and capability to personally pastor the millions who are in dire need, she is using this book to coach those who will one day have to stand alone as she did. So as a labor of love, Pam has jam-packed almost 300 pages with loads of truths to prepare you for the evil day. It was a book written a century ago that turned Pam’s life upside down and served as the catalyst to open her eyes to comprehend just how deeply the enemy’s infiltration into the institutional church had personally hindered her walk in the spirit. “War on the Saints” set her free from being a Christian zombie for 25 years.

So this her 7th book is motivated by her democratic belief in the free will of the individual to be un-deluded in this Laodicean age of deception where “Satan has deceived the entire world.” For those who have an ear to hear and an eye to see, this eye-opening book will take you on the narrow road to meet the true and real Jesus Christ of Nazareth for yourself, without the influence or the mediation of the blind controlling and leading the blind. This book will pull you out of your religious ditch and cause you to stand on solid, good ground that will prepare you to “really be born again.” In fact, You will be able to clarify for yourself what has kept you deceived and what you need to know to address your own vulnerabilities and triumph over them.

In her 6 earlier books, Pam established and presented a framework to unravel religious deception which she elaborates on and enhances in “the Church of the End-time Zombies.” Nothing is withheld that would be useful to you but one subject, demonic soul-ties, the subject of its own book. This book is conversational in its language style as Pam personally coaches you from each page.

Then there are those of you who do not have to stand alone, as RESCUE still has the capability to receive your membership. To know more about RESCUE, watch these videos.

Don’t forget to get your coaching book to help you stand alone.
