Speaking with @chriskratzer for our podcast and he made a great point: so much of evangelicalism is little more than religious addiction cycles. #

How it works: go to church, get revved up for another week to "partner with Jesus" to live a successful Christian life.

During the week (of course) you fail to live up to the standards the preacher told you God expected of you, so you feel bad about yourself. You're a worm, a miserable failure.

Come Sunday, though, you're back in church, ready to get revved up and do it all over again.

Religious hype ensues in the worship.

So it's an addictive religious cycle. This is not only how they keep people under control, they have to come back each Sunday (and all the other activities in the week) to get their "fix" and keep going.
