I know the slander on the part of those who say that they are Jews, and they are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.
I’ve been to some churches of Satan.
Not in the way in which that probably sounds.
Churches who have lost their First Love (v.4), are promoting principles, programs, and good works, or the community itself, before they are promoting the person of Christ himself.
Some churches are more pleasing to Satan than to Jesus, I believe. If the devil can keep people from being in love with, and reliant on, Jesus the living Christ, then he is quite pleased with his bad self.
Satan is the prince of the power of the air. Satan works with the flesh—our human powers without divine assistance or guidance. Satanic influence can infiltrate churches, no matter what their name or claim, through keeping them reliant on their own power, away from prayer, psychologizing, forgetful of the Cross.
Always remain aware of what your church is promoting most, promoting first.
For Christians who gather, there is the Cross first; everything else, a very distant second, flows from that.
Ok, I must admit that I’ve been sitting on those “Little People” playset pictures for over two years, dying to use them, and am giddy to finally have the chance!
