My advice to everybody on here is:
NEVER ignore a red flag going up about ANYTHING.
That red flag went up for a reason.
I learned this from years of very harsh, very unpleasant experience.
I wish to God I could go back in time and pay attention to countless red flags that went up that I DIDN'T pay attention to.
Laws limit behavior, but only love liberates the heart. The Gospel turns bigots into brothers & enemies into friends....just saying
The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem...just saying
The weight of religion holds good men DOWN, But the Gospel of Jesus lifts the downtrodden UP....just saying
Self-serving people will try & divert talents & gifts from a local church, toward building something for themselves.....just saying
