    “Christians shouldn’t turn back to the Bible or the church. Then we’re heading in the wrong direction. We move forward to God. We advance.”

    Can you say, WOLVES? I do not know who these “preachers” are. Never heard of most of them. But here in the USA like minded wolves/preachers are on TV. When any preacher, teacher, self proclaimed “prophet” says something as Blasphemous as the above statement then they are wolves and false prophets. But I’m sure they have a following that believes these devils are sent from Almighty God.

    “Christians shouldn’t turn back to the Bible?” I’m sure they don’t want their followers read the Word of God because the Word would “out them.” But, there are a lot of “itching ears” out there that won’t search the word but will soak in all of the lies packaged in glitz and glamour. To tell people don’t turn to the “Church” is more heresy. WE, the saved, ARE the Church of the living God!

    Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
    Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
    Ephesians 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

    I’m not willing to put myself into a den of thieving wolves. I can’t run any more because my legs won’t let me. But I have a power wheel chair, I would “wheel myself outta there” if I heard my Pastor say to not read the word and don’t come to church.
    If there is anyone here in this blog that follows any of those Wolves please listen to Deborah as she exposes these wolves with the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Word and he gave Himself for us, His church, His Bride made clean & worthy by His precious blood.
