    Ummmmn… Some people’s lives are full of lies. There’s also a lot of lying on the pulpit. I even want to believe that there are more lies on the pulpit than in the pew. With some servants of God, their word is not their bond. They are at their best when they are lying. So, we need to pray for a cleansing of the pulpit.

    Brother Isaac LOL @ More lies on the pulpit than in the pew. God help us all. We must be very careful and very aware of what we listen to and what we feed ourselves with (1 John 4″ Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world…..”) Ultimately, we have to “work out our own salvation with fear and trembling”(Phil 2:12)… trusting, following, obeying God. It’s ultimately between us and God. No pastor or preacher will stand with us on the last day. So help us God. Amen. Thanks so much for sharing, brother! #FoodforThought
