When God Becomes a Drug: Understanding Religious Addiction and Abuse

When God Becomes a Drug: Understanding Religious Addiction and Abuse

By Leo Booth, MTH, CADC

1.5 CEs

Rev. Leo Booth makes a careful distinction between spirituality and religion. “Spirituality is a healthy relationship between body, mind, and emotions that empowers choice, responsibility, and change. Unhealthy use of religion often separates people from themselves, others, and God. Spirituality always unites us.” In this course, Rev. Leo reveals common dysfunctional religious messages that are symptomatic of Religious Abuse. He talks about the spiritual link with “God energy” that activates our spiritual empowerment, and he shows us how attachment to toxic religious messages stops us from realizing that we are all children of God.
