Re: Myth Busters LCD Style Program 1

Re: Advice for friends

I'll pray for you.

My advice would be to keep paying attention to the warning signs you mentioned and don't do anything different than you already are.

The Acting God? Not
The term “The Acting God”, let’s examine it.

Re: You can't serve God if you aren't graduated from full-time training.
