Sometimes things that happen in church are not so pleasant. As is written in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 28, it is written:
19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
This passage is after the death, burial and resurrection when Christ gives this profound command to go. However, it is something else when God leads someone to do something. There is a sound of “you can’t do that”, or you will receive a good tongue lashing from people. However, God never said for us to just do what you say do. Church folk can really hurt people in ways that are not healthy and yet, they say they love the Lord. If one has a ministry, does that mean that I can’t have the same ministry separate and yet still be productive in the two. Our territory is too large to be combative about trivial things. If my circle only consists of one kind of people “church folk” then how can we help the world, our neighbors or our co-workers. The power of prayer transcends through the barriers of time and yet there are undertones because someone else branches out.
My argument is real. If my neighbor, co-worker or friend asks me to pray for them and I do, does that mean I have to get permission to pray? I don’t think so but do I feel that sometimes church folk think more highly of themselves than they ought. Humility is the best method and minding your own business and not be offensive to others. Stop pulling rank on God’s people and, if you mind your own business, I’m quite sure others will mind theirs.
I’m talking about simply church folk.
