I received the following testimony as a comment, and wanted to share it as an article. Thanks and blessings, Doug!
First and foremost, hats off to Mkayla,for not braking ranks in this WAR!
Okay, I have a story for you. Maybe it applies here and maybe not, but I believe that I was unfairly, verbally attacked by these three people in a supposed to be, Christian, Faith Based AA Group.
And I want to say, I’m not a member, nor am I affiliated with AA or any of its associates in any way!
A friend of mine who heads this group asked me, if I would help him with the group. I had been there years prior, and kinda chalked the whole thing up to too many rules and regulations on the surface, and just really didn’t wanna find out what was underneath.
So I said yes and started chairing this AA meeting as a fill in for this guy. These people are to be very Leary of. Just listen to this:
I began by reading the appropriated material out loud and instead the normal:”Hi, I’m (whoever) and I’m an alcoholic/drug addict, I said”Hi, I’m Doug, and I was an alcoholic/drug addict until I met The Lord Jesus Christ and he healed me.”
We’ll, suprisingly enough at first I was getting good response with this and so after about a month I started referring to divine healing for alcoholics and educating them in where their faith should be!
That it was not to be in the MEETINGS but in Christ and Him Crucified!
I began pointing them more and more to looking to God ALONE. To only use the meetings as a tool to help u by listening to others and supporting each other with their unique but yet similar stories. And I always encourage laughing and putting the past where it belongs; in the past!
This was going quite well up until about 6 weeks ago this couple from a near by town who happen to run the local Triangle Group came over. They seemed nice enough, until they talked.
These two were loud, obnoxious, and hateful. Mind you, I can be part of all three when I get ticked over something said against my Lord and Savior. But these guys starting coming down on me because I had been telling people that I had been healed of Alcoholism.
You would have thought I had killed somebody. I was finally attacked by them in a very hostile verbal way after a meeting here recently. Absolutely ludicrous!!!
These guys basically tried to shout me down for standing up to the truth about AA and their 12 steps!!!
They wanted to SILENCE THE GOSPEL! Yet, they were Christian???
I think Not! They are enemies of The Cross of Christ Paul says.
They deny divine healing and that God can and will do anything.
They tell people that they are alcoholic and will alway
s be alcoholic!
That is a lie straight from the pits of HELL!
We CANNOT GIVE GROUND. I was able to infiltrate and help for over 6 months at least is how I see it. Many I believe we’re led to Christ.
It was like these little demons just walked right in that meeting and tried to destroy what I had established as truth the past six months. They are up under law! You can’t have it both ways!
It’s either Grace or Law! You can choose the method by which ye will be judged by. But I will choose GRACE EVERY TIME!
Don’t give in and don’t give up. We are to do what The Word of God says to do until the trumpet sounds and Jesus comes back to get us. That’s it!
Their pitiful attempt to thwart the work of God will not go unheard of in the halls of heaven.
In Christ Always,
We must all be courageous. One of these was a friend of mine. Sometimes we have to make hard decisions. This war is not easy. Many of us have been wounded by false doctrine. We know what it is and want terribly to keep anyone from experiencing the things we have.____
