Our church has been hosting unchurched people to give them opportunities to ask my husband questions they might have about God. When one of the pastor’s placed an ad about the Bible Study, Totally Forgiving God by R T Kendall, one man wrote a scathing letter.
I’m not aware of the contents. My husband thought he’d contact the writer to see about opening up a dialogue. I’ll be praying it goes well.
I was reading the last chapter of Mark, the last words of Jesus before He went up to heaven. In Mark 16: 15-20 (KJV), it says: And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mar 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Mar 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
I’m not sure what it means, “they shall take up serpents.”
Something to look in to.
May God bless you.
