Standing as a Christian




It's not always easy. I do get myself in "trouble" more often then not. I have told people directly that false religions lead to hell, trust me this one isn't always received in good fashion. People do not take kindly to being told false religions lead to hell. One thing many people will fall into the trap of believing hell is the most hideous invention, hey I had those days in the UU when from their pulpits they would tell us how despicable hell was and how Christianity was not true. They didn't get the piece that Jesus Christ came to save us in love from our sins.

I tell people this verse to go along with it:

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

One thing to remember out there is the world has no problem with the "Christians" who embrace all religions as leading to "god", those "Christians" are loved by the world.  Those are not the people who will face what the Bible believer will. In fact many of the false churches are joined with the world as I have shown time and time again on this blog. 


 Of course we want to to tell people that all are called to repentance [Luke 5:32] and Jesus Christ came in love to save them from their sins. 


2 Thess 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:



[cite for picture above]
Some people who may know you but disagree with your religious stands, may just shake their heads. The world will tell you that you have lost your mind, you do not understand and even more insidious messages then this. One's heart can break too, if you deal with people you care about who turn away from the Christian message and maybe even you for delivering it! Remain steadfast and go to God's Word. One cannot deny what they believe or He who has saved them. Look at the book of the Bible I named this very blog after....

Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?

Sometimes I have the kind non-believers who tell me, "you are such a nice person, how did you get these Taliban like beliefs?" when I say I believe other religions are false and will lead people to hell or that Jesus is the only way.  That one isn't easy to hear either.  I usually say or type this out in response:

1 Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

I know in America we are not suffering the intense persecution of some folks, but some instances are cropping up for me that are showing things as they are. Recently I've had someone tell me, you are bringing division between people! They told me, this "This With Me or Against Me" stuff is dysfunctional, bible believer!" 

I said, well, there will be division in this world!  This is where knowing your Bible helps....

Luke 12: 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:

I quoted that verse to them. Not sure what they thought but I hope it made them think. I can tell the pressures to "become one" or religions to join together or for humanity to join together with no divisions have only grown stronger. What was the "global awakening" message about but just another "unify" message? There is no mystery to me why every religion has jumped on the unity-globalist bandwagon, save for bible-believing Christianity. 


You know you are witnessing a lot, when someone forbids you to discuss religion in their house. Yes, that happened very recently to me too. I didn't go to the event that was planned, and did stand up and say, "I can't deny I'm a Christian that would be denying God". One thing I am a polite guest and don't get up and preach and bang my bible but I guess quoting the Bible probably a lot and witnessing when I got the opportunities brought this to their notice.

I am know I am not always perfect in making my stands, I know I have to pray more myself about walking in faith and praying to God about what I am to do and when I am to speak out.

2 Corinthians 5:7

7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

But sometimes it seems hard. God has put me in the position where the numbers of Christians around me are very few or they are far away. I would like to ask my readers for prayer regarding this issue, as it has weighed heavily on me.  I am not sure why this has been so long lasting but seeking to trust in God. Lately I have felt very solitary as a Christian outside of my relationship with God and a few friends. Maybe you do too. There are very few Christian people in my life around me, and even my old bible-believing church members are now far away. I relate if you feel this way and alone, like you are the "only one" out there. It is something I have to pray about all the time. I do have to hold on despite the constant pressure to "conform and be quiet" and not talk about such things. Satan's onslaughts to "shut up" can grow pretty intense out there. The world is working hard to silence the gospel and silence the Christians who still love the truth.

You are not alone in the way you feel Bible Believer. I will pray for you and others like us. I don't know why it's this way right now. Why are we so scattered and can't seem to find like-minded believers other than on the internet? Are there really so few uncompromising Christians around anymore? I know sometimes it's very lonely and difficult but I want to encourage you and believe God will bring us together in His perfect timing.

Philemon 1 (King James Version)

4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,

5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;

6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother (sister).

Wow, what a blessing to read this! I have become discouraged many times when I try to warn people about the things that are happening now. I try to tell about the New Age infiltration of Christianity, but I feel like they think I'm crazy. Even when I speak about things that I think are obvious like "Twighlight" or yoga, they don't agree with me, let alone Easter or Christmas. When I get a helpless feeling about these things, I like to think of Elijah bring told by God that he has preserved a remnant that hasn't bowed the knee to Baal. It's nice to see a remnant spread throughout the world now through blogs and podcasts.

On another hot topic these days, I used to think the whole kjv only debate was over thees and thous and tradition. I just recently learned about the Textus Receptus vs the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus, and Westcott and Hort. What will my friends think when I tell them I've moved into the kjv camp?

Thank you for taking the time to write this blog. It does encourage us like minded people that feel like we are alone on an island.

You can't care what man thinks. That's the problem we can all have. It can a problem for all of us because, we are trained to seek approval from man. We get that training from the flesh, and from our experiences in the world, to seek acceptance and approval and praise.

The truth is convicting. They hate the truth. So to avoid admitting that, they say the push-button hurtful things like "taliban-like beliefs", and, "what happened to you to be like this???".

That deflects the conviction from them and puts it on you, in their minds.

Jesus said they hated Him (John 15:18, 25). What then do you think they'll do to you? Since they hate the truth of statements like John 14:6, then you standing up for it, means you will have people deride you.

That's why you can't seek their approval. Satan knows that we want people's approval in the flesh. He uses that. And we have to crucify it. Since the person attacking you, their "view" is very temporary, their "view" ends at their death or the return of the Lord, whichever comes first. And in eternity, their "view" is gone forever.

So we have to recognize that there might be something in us that desires approval, and that's what makes the comments hurt. I say that first to myself. But I believe it applies to all of us on some level.

Yes, it is a blessing to me, too, to read this. I feel alone in my beliefs. Definitely the new age infiltration of the church under the emergent, seeker, etc., is a big warning, but no one seems to want to listen. They think I am crazy. I remember reading Out On a Limb in the 80's - Shirley MaLain's book. Not because I was interested in participating, but I wanted to see what she was saying - what her beliefs were. I remember thinking that years from now this will be big. And that day is here. I know so many people into that. I bring up the occult influence all around with the movies, books, in schools, yoga, etc. No one seems to care.

Thanks for your blog. You are in my prayers. The opposition to the truth is getting more vicious. I pray we have the strength to stand firm in persecution- that we will be strong to the end!

Thank you for writing this BB. I feel that way too. Its such a lonely journey and the road so narrow. But you know what. Every since Ive started this journey, God has shown me so much grace. I think all of you can speak to that grace as well.

People dont realize how narrow the gate really is. Its so narrow, you practically have to strip everything off just to get in.

When I talk, ppl are starting to think im crazy too. I had a person come by my house, and told me to stop talking about religion. I made it very clear that he was in MY house and I will talk about Jesus all night long.

Can we be surprised? Jesus warned us that in the last days it would be like the days of Noah. They all didnt know until the flood swept them away. Only 8 souls were saved. I wouldnt be surprised if Jesus flock was not in the millions, but in the mere thousands. Because of the enormous misinformation of end times due to your La Hayes and Lindseys, many Christians are looking in the wrong direction.

I thank God there are a few sites including this one that speak the truth.

I am in tears.

Thank you Bible Believer for your message of hope and helping me to understand where I am at in my walk. I have written to you before to ask where to find others that are taking a stand for some kind of support or open discussion. Your post could not have come at a better time, but as always His timing is perfect. I have been feeling so overwhelmingly alone.

I have only been saved for 5 1/2 yrs and am 47. So I walked almost my entire life blinded to who God is and definitely had no clue about Jesus. I was almost dead. I was so cast down, so addicted to drugs etc. and I knew it and was speaking to a God that I didn't know and told Him "my soul is almost gone, I have almost nothing left of it". It has been said that Jesus Himself came and rescued me because I would never have gotten free otherwise.

He has continually showed me His love and healing and forgiveness for such filthy wickedness in my life. There have been countless occasions where I know that it could only have been God that intervened to keep showing that He was present and that I was to keep my eyes on Him. These were times where I was deeply hurt by Christians. He always, always let me know that that does not represent Him.

These interventions on His part especially in the first 2 yrs are what kept me from walking away from the whole Christianity thing.

When you know, that you know, that you know, that God has done these things in your life you can't help but desire to serve Him in any manner possible. There are times I have wanted to shout of His incredible love from the rooftops.

This year, after God taking 4 yrs to heal me and prepare me for my coming walk and the boldness I will need to speak these things, your blog helped with the peeling back of the veils of all the false teachings and so much more.

What I am getting at is this...you have become somewhat as a mentor to me because I am feeling really alone almost like I am going to be the enemy of the people who have loved on me from the beginning and so many more because so many people just don't want to hear it.

I spoke up just before Christmas to a woman who has been wonderful to me and is serving Jesus with her life but sent a FB posting that was being circulated about the children that died "supposedly" in the Sandy Hook shootings. It was a poem about these children arriving in Heaven with Jesus greeting them there and spending Christmas with Him.
Righteous anger arose in me that I sent her an email questioning why she would be sending a message out to so many people with the abomination that Christ is sitting in Heaven celebrating Christmas??? I included scriptures etc. because of my conviction for the last 3 Christmas', that this false celebration is not of God.

Well obviously it didn't go so well and I was told that I was accusing and "taking things way too far". She reiterated that she had gone down this road before and that I was becoming so blinded that I lost sight of the children that this message was about.

It took me a couple of days to respond because of uncertainty of just how far I need to go with this. Do I lose a friend for what I have to speak especially after she's been such a support to me in the past?

So for the past couple of weeks I have been praying and asking God to please help me to know that what I am about face, the stand that I know in my heart is from Him and that I am not alone in this. Thank you Lord God for always, always answering my prayers.

Holy Spirit has been showing me and preparing me for writing my own blog which I started but have not advertised yet, because early on I knew that I was to reach out to the many friends/family contacts that I have on FB that would never hear the message of salvation from any other place, coming from the same type of life as my own.

Leahlive said...

Your post has had me in tears since I read it knowing that there is nothing else that matters in this life than to share the message no matter what comes of it, as time is running short.

God has had me out of the Church system for most of this year now and the enemy has been having a heyday with me, even this morning believing that I just can't get along with people. I keep getting this vision of being a little lamb completely lost from the flock and the enemy pelting me with rocks. LOL.

There is no other way to do this than with some sort of support in knowing that we are not alone.

So thank you. Thank you so much for being bold and speaking the truth. Thank you for all your research and time that you put into this blog. It took me a month and a half to read Wolves this summer as I had to keep being obedient to Holy Spirit when it was getting too much to believe the utter wickedness and deceit that Christians are falling prey to, and walk away for a while and let my brain comprehend and spend time in worship.

I asked God to guide me through this Christmas and show me how to separate and explain to people why I would no longer be celebrating. I was convicted the last 2 Christmas' with no understanding as to why. It has been a very very difficult time for me watching all these Christians that I have known from the beginning of my walk putting up their Christmas trees and frolicking in it, all the while withdrawing from my own memories and special feeling associated with this season.

Even seeing someone that I have been following on YT for some time lash out because he doesn't want to give up Christmas and turn it around that those of us that choose to no longer celebrate are Pharisees and just want less of Jesus???, and try to convince people that Christmas is in the bible.

Sorry, I have gone on a bit, but this is the very core of my being now in my life and I want to thank you again for your timely message. You are definitely in my prayers.

I will ask again if there is some way to correspond with you via emails or a chat support that you recommend with others that are like minded, so that I can too know that aside from God letting me know, that I am not alone.

God Bless and I apologize if this is a little muddled as I have been crying my way through. Leah

BB and others, you don't know how much your post and all these comments have helped me tenfold. Praise God for your site BB it has been a blessing to me and helped me so much. I recently have come out of the church system and do not celebrate Christmas and Easter against many other Christians wishes.
Sometimes we have to take a stand for what we believe in and go against the grain, and yes people do deflect their convictions on you. Even by being in the same room as people who know your a Christian, you somehow come up in all their conversations... "I'm sure you don't approve... or don't say that in front of her...". It gets old quick and as I'm a fairly new Christian I don't always know how to answer back.
This morning I was feeling deflated as again I was chastised about the whole Christmas thing and not going to Church and how I've got the meaning all wrong. That's it about being with family and helping others and worshipping with other believers, so what's your problem?! Like there's something wrong with me.
I'm so happy I'm not alone, may the lord bless and keep all of you in the palm of His hand for ever and eternity. May he strengthen you and guide you always and give you his peace and love that surpasses all understanding.

Abbey, Thanks for posting and for your prayers. I know I have wondered why we are so scattered too, though I think this is predicted in the Bible...

http://galatiansfour.blogspot.com/2011/08/soul-winning-and-scattered-sheep.html

It is hard to find like-minded believers, but I am glad I posted this just even to let other people know some of us are facing this too. It helps me for other Christians to post here, and tell me they are going through the same thing definitely.:)

Ezekiel 34: 2 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.

Bible Believer said...

Thanks 2nd anon. Yes I know when I try to warn people it's tough. I've had many tell me I am crazy, even with basic truths about the churches, New Age infiltration, trying to warn about Rick Warren. No deep NWO stuff there just straight Bible teachings compared to what is being taught in the churches and many do not want to hear it. Yes the same thing happens with the obvious stuff too, like stay away from Twighlight series or don't do Yoga. There are many verses in the Bible telling us about the remnant and these verses too help me. I think we are seeing like-minded folks on line and that helps too.

I am glad you figured out the whole KJV thing. It took me time to study. Be careful of Ruckman though and other extreme deceivers, was disappointed to find this preacher on Youtube who was NWO aware even but deceived by Ruckman and pals. This is a good book to figure out the Bible truths, very simple and cartoons but will save a person time of wondering around websites of conflicting information.

http://www.chick.com/catalog/books/1252.asp

I even took Bibles and compared them for myself when studying KJV vs false issue. God helped me out personally with this one, when I left the RCC, and knew NOTHING, God directed me to get a KJV Bible and NOTHING else.

Learning the difference between the Textus Receptus, Vaticanu and Sinaiticus and Westcott and Hort's role in it all is imperative.

I had the interesting experience of comparing directly what was phony in my then Catholic Bibles with my new KJV Bible.

I have done the KJV discussion with folks and have faced many defenses of false Bibles. This is not an easy one. I notice in my area use of the KJV is very very rare. Thanks for your encouragement too.

Bible Believer said...

Thanks third anon! :) God bless you too.

Anon 4, I agree, we can't care what man thinks. Some of us are going to be going down roads where just about everyone around us is going to be saying "You are wrong!". This is why turning to God for this stuff and to other Christians we can find is so important. I agree many of us are trained to seek approval from man, to be "liked" not to be hated. We are told several times by Jesus Christ, the world will hate those who are His, and those warnings are important for us to remember. Many do hate the truth, and do not want to hear it and do avert their eyes in anger. And yes they will lash out and tell you that you are wrong, "crazy", etc. I do think as time moves on, in America, things are going to get worse for Christians and some of us definitely have felt the change in the air. So yes it does deflect things and they put it on you instead.
I agree we must all press on irregardless, know what Jesus warned us of. It's true the comments do hurt, it can be painful in the flesh to face rejection and derision from others. I am trying to turn that over to God the best I can.

Bible Believer said...

Thanks Leahlive, I am glad this article was encouraging to you. Thanks for your emails. Yes I know finding others, especially IRL can be a challenge. Praise God for freeing you and bringing you into His truth and for the Love and forgiveness you have found.
Christians. Thanks for telling us about how God has always let you know that the "Christians" who have hurt you, do not represent Him. We all have to get to that point where we know that "Christiandom" as it now stands is not representative of what Jesus Christ truly wanted or is about.
I had to go through a process myself where God showed me, look you are finding out about these evil churches, seeing horrific things but this has nothing to do with the truth. God would comfort me in the same way, even writing this blog it is comfort I have to seek quite often. Asking God how did it get so bad, wanting to cry seeing how they are destroying people's lives in these cults and false churches. God's interventions in my life too, love and showing me these truths, also kept me pressing forward.

Hebrews 12 1: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

I am glad you spoke up to that woman. I am praying God gives me courage and I am able to speak out as led, in different occasions. Christmas is a tough one. I have sent people that Santa Claus the Imposter article and given out Phamphlets that tell the truth about Christmas. Yes I have been told I am taking things "too far" too. Even if one is kind, it can be tough.I have the loving folks who while they listened to me and respect me, just simply say, "We don't agree".

I am always in prayer over events like what you faced, How to speak the truth, and what comes as a result of it all? Just keep remembering God is by your side, and while they may refuse truths today, a few may come into truth later, due to planted seeds. This was true of me, hearing the gospel even 15 years before salvation. I reach out where I can too. I will pray for you. Thanks for your kind words. I relate to what you said about the church system, and the devil sending messages like, "you can't get along with people", LOL, yeah I've heard that one, and also another one the devil has sent me, "is what good are you being a almost a hermit like that"? The messages are huge to compromise out there. All of us will be sent temptations, hey when I was LEAVING the churches, Calvary Chapel in this case, I had a few say to me, "we know you are right about many of the things that are wrong, but we cannot just go home and not have a church!" I would tell them what the real "church" was to no avail. But I have heard those messages too, and for me, I am the type of personality that loved having a church "family", if you see what I wrote about my first church after I was saved but this would mean total compromise and joining with false preachers that preach lies from the pulpit and a system that has become so corrupt. I visited enough years ago, to know that sitting in a pew listening to lies aggrieved the Holy Spirit and anyone who has a close relationship with God, you cannot simply sit there and listen without holding yourself accountable and LEAVING. I think it is important we do tell each other even for mutual support, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Thanks for your kind words and encouragement. Remember you can email me at biblebeliever2@gmail.com

Bible Believer said...

Thanks other anon, for your encouragement too. I am glad you have left the church system as well. There are people who are leaving, and even the mainstream Christian world occasionally tosses up an article about those who have left. I agree about taking a stand for what we believe in. It is interesting to me to see how even other stands, just knowing what is "right", there are so few standing up. People are not happy with this, and more and more we live in a world where people are told to conform or else. LOL about the other people who know you are a Christian, yes I have faced this. They know there are many parts of "the normal world" I cannot join with like going to a rock concert etc. Since you are a new Christian just hang in there, God will help you more and more. I remember my early days and how it took time to even know how to deal with these things and turning to God for His Love and support. It takes prayer. Trust me I have faced the chastisement, and even when I started this blog had lost friends over leaving Calvary Chapel and speaking out against it. That happens to a lot of us. Yes many will tell you, that you must join up with false churches for social reasons, and that you are only "hurting yourself and others". I have heard that one too many times. I heard it when I first came out of Catholic church from a relative who told me religions operated mostly for social reasons and what I believed should not even matter. :0!

The world will tell us over and over there is something wrong with us. I do say the pressures are going to grow even harsher, and I have noticed this myself. Thanks for your prayers too.

We are without a church for seven months or so. I posted here before. I homeschool our 4 young children, and worry about the isolation of homeschooling, and now no church family. Have not found a church that does not seem very commercial, or that is some other denomination that is way off. Trying to be faithful in teaching the word to my kids myself. Husband is really getting depressed, just starting to see deceptions and NWO stuff, coupled with unsteady income. Hard on a man who wants to work and provide. Praying for him. Not easy times.

I'll pray for your husband too, it can be hard for those just starting to be shown things, I remember how I felt, and unemployment and unsteady income can be a very hard to go through. Yes I saw that verse the other day and its one I am planning to memorize too. :)

Thanks for the link to chick.com. I have been reading a lot of the articles since you posted it, and have learned even more about the two lineages of manuscripts. By the way, I didn't give my name (Matt) in my original comment, but I will put my name on new comments to make it easier for you to keep track of who you are conversing with.

Bible Believer said...

Anon, I have said many times, links are not endorsed. I have considered taking acouple off. So I do think about these things, and don't just throw it to the wind.

With Wolves in Sheep's Clothing while I disagree wholeheartedly with the Nephilim stuff, he has a lot of other good information so I have thought that one out, and I tell people over and over, I do NOT agree with the Nephilim stuff. Same for the Contending link. Trust me I consider taking a few links down on occasion, but where am I going to find anything that is 100%? There is a few blogs and other websites that are on spot, but it's gotten so rare, there is information I want readers to be able to find out and have, I don't have time to write on every single solitary matter, so they can find places to go. My stance has always been read everything and test, including what is shown here. Even when writing articles, I have to use unendorsed links for information such as infowars and news websites. You may not agree with this choice, but trust me it is not an easy one, you do not want to know my disappointments upon even finding what look like good websites at the start and then finding some giant lie, diversion or other. It's all over the place. Non-infiltrated websites are the EXCEPTION.

Everyone who reads here long enough knows where I stand with the NEPHILIM thing and that it is an EVIL teaching.

Bible Believer said...

You did make me think, and I decided to leave the links up with warnings against the Nephilim teachings.

I certainly don't want anyone adopting those things. Hey remember running a blog, like this one does have to think about what they are accountable for before God.

So I do not mind you speaking up, but do realize where I am coming from regarding information.

The non-infiltrated places are the EXCEPTION.

In fact I have been facing the fact, though I have only hinted about this, to a degree on the global awakening post, they are even inverting things massively for the NWO AWARE crowd, and yes they have traps set for the NWO aware Christian if they divert from God's Word.

Bible Believer said...

The author of Wolves in Sheep's clothing, I have told him my beliefs about the Nephilim and have prayed for him to study this issue.

I do think there are sincere folks who get diverted with that junk. I think about how websites promoting it is intense.

I agree wholeheartedly that MattTwoFour is sincere.

jesusremainskingofkings said...

Good article. I'm definitely one lacking fellowship. I have no other Christian friends apart from my lovely girlfriend :)

However, that said, I'm going to take a stand against a few of the comments regarding Christmas.

Firstly, yes Christmas is a pagan holiday. I understand. I saw just how pagan this festival was this year, as atheists wished people "Merry Christmas".

However, this issue is not something that should ever divide the body of Christ, as stated by Paul in Romans 14.

If you know that taking a stand against Christmas is going to cause one weaker in faith to stumble, you are commanded not to do so.

If you see a brother using the festival as an occasion for the flesh - stooped in idolatry and materialism - then you are commanded to take a stand!

We must be like Christ and worry about others more than ourselves. We are saved, so what does it matter if we have to sit through a Christmas Church service with our family to keep them happy in the Lord?

Note: That is the deciding factor - whether or not they are in the Lord. If they are not, by all means take a stand and uphold the truth.

Anyway, I say this because too many - myself included - NWO-aware Christians are becoming self-centered in their decision making.

By all means tell the world about the occult references in Harry Potter, or the existence of the Illuminati, for these truths have the ability to wake people up - and our stand against them is a response to "take no part in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, instead expose them", but do not let a single day get in the way of your fellowship with true believers in Christ who are merely weaker in faith.

SDAs turn against those who don't observe the Sabbath and we mock them, so are we not hypocritical to turn against those who observe Christmas?

Justification is by faith in Jesus Christ, not faith + turning from Christmas.

Note: Remember this is written by someone who does not consider Christmas a special day - other than the fact we get to spend time with family.

Thank you for the information that you publish on your blog. I have recently read many articles.

After witnessing a young 22 year old women leaving home, because of an abusive father and how she was treated by both her family and the church we left.

It is a Bill Gothard type church. Learned a lot about him from your blog. Again thank you.

However, I am confused as to why you use a picture from a site that propotes A. W. Pink and C. I. Scofield. Do you propote them, also? These two things is all I needed to see to say away from this site!

I am so glad I found you, I am sad about isolating and would like a group to worship and share with, but cannot bring myself to compromise by staying in a church that teaches false doctrine, it is too spiritually dangerous and I do not trust myself to not be deceived, A little Leaven ......anyway, thank you for this blog. it is so nice to know that I am not alone, that I am not just "being prideful" or difficult to get along with by not " going to church" though an old friend of mine from my old mega church gave me a good talking to a couple of weeks ago when I ran into her at the grocery store. It is lonely though.
