Fighting for TRUTH

The more I walk around on campus, the more I feel the weight of this verse:

"In repentance and rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your strength, but you would have none of it." -- Isaiah 30:15

Tonight was a hard night for me. My friend, told me her sad story of entrusting a specific body of believers, expecting to feel acceptance and grace. Her experience told her that she was unacceptable and would never fit in. She decided to keep looking for a place to belong and met her needs in a group of people who twist the word of God into a "truth" that seems simpler to believe.

After researching their doctrine, she has decided to part ways with this group. The unfortunate affect is the damage that resulted from having her trust broken once again. I hurt for her.

Pray for my friend as she is learning what it truly means to trust God and to trust in His word. Pray for Cal State Long Beach and that the good news of Jesus Christ would reign. Pray that my friends would be protected from the attraction and false advertisement this group is offering.

"See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world and not according to Christ." ~ Colossians 2:8
