  • Christine shared from Full Armor of God, The: Defending Your Life From Satan's Schemes by Larry Richards
    The major difference between the beliefs of many people today and the beliefs of first-century Ephesians lies in the fact that first-century men and women feared the spirits. Moderns assume that the spirits are well disposed to humans and eager to help. As a result moderns tend to be comfortable going to palm readers or clairvoyants, mediums or witches, or calling directly on spirits for help and guidance.

  • Christine shared from The Perfect Leader by Ken Boa
    It is self-evident that a hypocrite is unqualified to guide others toward attaining higher character. No one respects a person who talks a good game but fails to play by the rules.
