“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.” 2 Tim 3:5 (KJV)
I’ve often been amazed at some services I’ve had the, um, reluctance to attend, but because of special circumstances, you could say I was “remanded” to having to attend. I was a drug addict and told I would be in the program for a year. Alright, that’s the condition and I accepted such. What I could not accept was “services” I had to attend, particular on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday evening, after which they’d have a so-called “healing service” which took place after the preaching and/or teaching. They’d announce, “If anyone have any sickness in their body or mind, come forward and receive healing.” And, some did. And just as many “came” for healing, the same amount “left” with whatever it was they brought up front!
