“In the mid-1960’s a major shift began in how evangelicals viewed and dealth with sin. The Church stopped calling sinful and deviant behavior “sin” and started calling it “sickness.” The sexual sinner Paul wrote about (1 Corinthians 6:9) became a sex addict. The thief (1 Corinthians 6:10) became a kleptomaniac. The drunkard (1 Corinthians 6:10) became an alcoholic. The rebellious child (2 Timothy 3:2) became afflicted with “Oppositional Defiant Disorder,” ADD, and ADHD. A family in which the husband will not work, the wife will not keep the home, and the children will not obey is no longer considered sinful; it is dysfunctional. The liar became a compulsive liar. The gambler became a compulsive gambler. The idolater became a person who suffers from an obessive-compulsive disorder. The deeds of the flesh, which are immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness, carousing” (Galatians 5:19-21) have all been redefined using psychopathological words.” – Deceptive Diagnosis
Pastors are blurring the lines and using psychological jargon that God defined as sin. The only solution for sin is Jesus. Those who are close to those on psych meds have heard how the medication makes a person feel. They behave like zombies and are still depressed, suicidal, and dangerous. The answer is found in taking personal responsibility for your sin. Stop blaming others for your problems and start being obedient to the Creator of heaven and earth. Stop calling sin a sickness that a medical doctor can solve. They cannot. That is why the mental ward is on overflow and those who enter rehab return again and again and again. The problem is sin.

The Catholic Church in the US forked out $120 million to victims of sexual abuse at the hands of clergy and $30 million on pedophile prevention programs over 12 months, according to an annual report.
The bulk of the $150 million between June of 2013 and 2014 was spent on compensation, therapy and legal fees for victims, the report said, and the rest went to preventing the abuse from occurring, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops said.
The US bishops conduct an annual study of sexual abuse allegations following a church scandal over pedophile priests came under the spotlight in 2002. In the fallout senior church officials acknowledged they had protected priests responsible for the sexual abuse of children.
The report said there were 657 allegations of underage sexual abuse by priests, of which 130 have been recognized and 243 are still under investigation and the rest unproven. Most allegations relate to events that took place years earlier. Read more
The solution for burning with lust is to marry. Paul does not mention praying about it, fasting, or reading more scripture verses. Get married and release your sexual passion on your spouse. Most individuals on the planet do not have the gift of being single. Marriage is the only tool God has designed for sex. Anything else is sin and will lead to death.
God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. – 2 Timothy 1:7
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you:not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. – John 14:27
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7
You must understand by now that everyone on the internet writing and producing content has an agenda. No one on the internet is completely objective, every page including this one. My agenda is clear. I want everyone on the planet to love God and love people who are created in his image. I want everyone to have a personal relationship with Jesus and to become disease free. I want everyone to receive the correct information about Scripture and understand sin. I want everyone to understand we are not alone, aliens (demons) live among us and they are a huge part of our destructive thinking and doing. I want everyone to understand that angels take on human form and also play a role in rescuing us from death and destruction.
Navigating the voices can only be done through the singularity of ones ear. Everything I hear passes through the door which is Jesus. I know him. It is why, no new doctrine moves me. It is why, I can see the deception repackaged for new consumers. It is why, you will see the new deceptions repackaged. Nothing is new. It may be called new because someone new is pushing this doctrine, but it is not. Satan does not care who you serve as long as you do not serve Jesus. Why? He is the only door that leads to eternal life.
Man is not on earth to merely suffer through. He was created to worship and serve the Creator and through this man finds his ultimate purpose. Anything else is confusion. That is why you see many people running around from one doctrine to the next. Satan pulls you here and then pulls you there. Let’s try yoga. Let’s try being a witch and mess with occult powers. Let’s try worshipping statues or toast with Mary on it. Let’s worship Beyonnce or Kanye West. How about Taylor Swift?
Now you may think this sounds strange, but everyone mentioned have people worshipping them. The Bible said, man found pleasure worshipping the created instead of the Creator who is blessed forever. Before Christ everyone worshipped the creature in one way or another.
You navigate the voices through keeping your ear single and full of light.
