There are many doctrines around that try to change and mold our minds—doctrines such as relativism and secularism, to name just a few. They are rather dictatorial and don’t allow for any other views than their own. Doctrines portray to be very reliable and solid, but in fact they turn out to be floating and fleeting opinions that have no foot to stand on. They are shaky ideologies disguised as solid doctrines. It’s their disguise that lures you in.
Yet, these doctrines are very powerful—but their power is somewhat “anonymous.” We may not always quite know who started them. We may not be able to point at the person who is responsible for them. We may not always even know what exactly it is that they stand for. We may not know where they came from. Sometimes they are only short-lived, but at all times they are fleeting—they just pop up, they come and go, although they leave some damage behind when they go. Even when they are short-lived, they can be quite destructive—and we may not even be aware of it.
