So -- while we deal with our personal chaos right now which has put our ministry in jeopardy; I just want to pass along something that we've been discussing and toss this out as something to ponder. Many Christian organizations charge substantial fees for various programs they offer, others don't. Many invent their own certification programs which are nothing more really than lofty yet convenient pieces of paper which yield profits for said organization. An organization I used to affiliate myself with offered gratis programs and I became recognized to lead others in their program; after almost 12 years of this, I recently went to their BRAND NEW website and low and behold, all previous acknowledgements for professional affiliation are not longer considered valid, they require a hefty sum to become certified through their new program in order to lead the exact same program. Bottom line, this got us talking about the concept of many organizations simply "selling God" instead of spreading the Good News of the Gospel and what Christ can do for you. I never charged anyone when I led them through the program. Needless to say, I'm devising my own free program now and revising the pricing on all ebooks for the ministry. WE WILL NOT SELL JESUS!
Just sharing one of the greatest Christmas presents I could receive this year with y'all -- one of my closest friends finally took that last step to accept Jesus Christ 100%; her faith is in Him and Him alone -- before it was an 80-20 deal for her, she took the last step a month ago, told me yesterday and I feel so very very happy I had to share! That's a Christmas present, which comes without ribbons, without bows, without packages -- maybe Christmas, the GRinch thought, means a little bit more... you get the idea!!! Merry Christmas!
