She likes power, authority and being around ''respected people''. Yea I dont really get it. Her church is full of superstition and they signed a contract with the Catholic church that most ppl dont even know about that she did. SHe wants to meet me and oh she will meet with me :p we will see what she has to say lol. I know shes about to snap if she starts tossing english words in lol!
Man if you lived in Oklahoma I would go with you just to explain to her the vast difference you have made here in cc and how much God has used you and the wisdom and maturity you have

Aww thanks :) ((hugs))
Yeah she went off on me in church. shes even pushed me away when I wanted to give a word. Then she shot me a email that she meant what she said about ''grow up'' and that she has to talk to me etc.
A lot of people are upset with her lol. She has rejected me often and as long as God sent me there, I went. Happily now im done with that church and just waiting for Gods appointed time for me to sit down with her and tell her straight about whats going on in her church. Its sad. For a while she hurted me every time emotionally when I got in and now im done finally with this place.
Its sad when you go to a church and rejoice when you get sent to another place lol!

It appears that she does not the love of God, when people who go by the name Christian are judgmental and fly off the handle and pint the finger then I would think they don't really know who God is and such people are to be pitied and prayed for but knowing you demi you already knew that didn't you? lol

this is because very few understand to be a great leader in the body means you are the best servant....

The Holy Ghost will only lead a servant....

Well she also is proud of her humility... she will go on her knees and then be proud for humbling herself. Yea. She will have to see that God doesnt play and that he will put a stop if he must. Awakening is over, fall away is happening all over

Indeed the heart of a servant is one I truly cherish and want very deeply, I mean when I saw how Jesus who is the king of all kings who is royalty who God almighty and could have smashed all of existence with a single word humbly lower himself lower than us knowing who he was yet serving the least and the most undeserving of people I saw what real love is I saw what true humility was and I wanted to be just like that.
The thing is a pastor or a preacher or a deacon anyone with power and authority in the church to teach and lead his flock cannot be just anyone, and if one is in such a position I would encourage them to consider the words and the teaching they preach and how they effect the hearts of his children because they being in such a position of power will be held all the more accountable for the heart the preach.

I have been told by some people in church that I would be a fantastic preacher because they said I show such wisdom and understanding and that my words encourage and uplift people and that I seem to make this spark in peoples hearts. While I don't think I am good enough to be a preacher if I was to look for a true preacher I would look for those qualities

A lot of ppl don't realise how much pain how much suffering she has done for others I am forever grateful for her which reminds us and ask you all to pray for her the warfare she is experiencing is huge and demi has taken great pains for ppl . lol the fear of God in her life is like radioactive and it scrubbed off on me I felt sick and its very scary what that woman did / pastor to her most importantly how she's treated God psalm 51

If the church forbids halloween because it's pagan and evil then i sure hope they don't celebrate thanksgiving christmas birthdays mother and fathers days or even new years or else they only contradict themselves.
Well in my church they say Halloween is "celebrating the devil" because of the dark and scary imagery. However when it comes to Christmas yeah they focus on the birth of Christ as the "real meaning of Christmas" and when it comes to Easter only focus on the death or Resurrection. If I were to ask and question someone about the pagan meanings behind those other holidays they'll say Halloween has no Christ centered story but the others do. I'm serious

I just cant have a clear conscience with it. The only good thing about Halloween is that i got a chance to try to get ppl to send me candy bars!! lol . I rather celebrate a bit less..than more. I dont wanna stand before God some day and him asking me bout goin to Church on a Pagan day and taking the last supper unrighteous like many do. People have called me ''catholic'' and all sorts for fasting before that and ''Pharisee'' and ''religious'' for not celebrating like others on Christmas etc..
Question, I agree with you but what do you do for Christmas then? Do you still celebrate the birth of Christ or just don't celebrate the decorations and stuff?

Well in the end people can celebrate it or not I don't hold the hammer of judgement but Christmas has pagan origins even people celebrate the birth of Christ just as all other holidays in America I would say do it as God leads you

No daughter of God would ask for Baby Ruth, when they know that Mr. Goodbar, Snickers and Paydays are true Manna from the Lord....Must wee cast out Baby Ruth out of you now or later....older folks are going to get the last part of my comment...
