I was conversing with a friend recently, discussing the issue of preachers among us walking away from holiness and Apostolic doctrine. He made the statement, “Their ‘revelation’ today is building a prison that their children will inhabit tomorrow.”
This statement brought to mind a sobering story heard recently.
Pastor Doug White, from Silsbee, Texas was approached by a father/son team in his church about a ‘job opportunity’ that was presented to them. The Dad is a foreman on large construction jobs, and he was given a proposal to manage a large project …
