This is my Bible. I am what it says I am, I have what it says I have, I can do what it says I can do… I boldly confess I will never be the same. 

Awhile back, I asked a brother in Christ that I greatly admire and respect about Joel Osteen.

I used to be deeply critical of him and convinced that he was a false prophet that was leading people astray with a prosperity Gospel.

But this brother surprised me when he said that Joel does many things for the Kingdom.

The statement above, for example, is what people in his congregation say before he preaches… it is so empowering and good, and I’m so happy that so many brothers and sisters say it every Sunday.

I also finally accepted a few months ago that I am called to deeply love and respect my Catholic brothers and sisters.

Life is so much easier and better choosing to truly love ALL of the saints, instead of looking at them with suspicion. Of course we are supposed to use the Word to test all things, but this doesn’t mean jumping immediately to suspicion.

The real enemy is invisible, and this is the one we need to hate.

Father God, help us to love each other and to do things for the Kingdom. Your glory is all that matters.

  1. Here is what the Bible says about you!!! If the people you are listening to do not say these things in some way shape or form than they become false teachers. If they speak the truth you will know it because your spirit (which is where the Holy Spirit is) will connect with the Holy Spirit in the other person this will be part of how you know.
