Re: A passage that describes spiritual abuse

Here's the intro to Amos from "The Message". More people are exploited and abused in the cause of religion than in any other way. Sex, money, and power all take a backseat to religion as a source of evil. Religion is the most dangerous energy source known to humankind. The moment a person ...

Re: A passage that describes spiritual abuse

There’s an Introduction in the Book of Amos (maybe ‘The Message’ version) that describes spiritual abuse quite powerfully.

I’ve tried to fine it but haven’t been able to. Maybe someone could help with this resource.

Re: The theology of 'planting'

I wondered the same thing, but it seems there have been dedications using this wording after the ‘agape meal’ had been introduced. I think it’s because they would describe all who are part of the ‘agape meal’, as ones who are a part of ‘this communion table’. It’s my understanding that the general t...

[8] All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. [9] I am the door....
