Galatians 5:17 says that the Spirit gives us desires that are opposite from what our sinful nature desires, and that these two forces are constantly fighting against each other. As a result, our choices are rarely free from this conflict. Don’t be alarmed. The fact that there is a fight confirms the value of our commitment. A paraphrase of, The Battle Within, illustrates this truth: A young man, determined to find help for his troubled life, walked to a neighboring church.

March 18th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on 3-18-14 “Church Hopping is often Fueled by Commercialism” – Pastor Shane Idleman)

A significant number of people are switching churches and/or discarding relationships. I’ve found that judging instead of loving often plays a role as seen in a recent correspondence, “I continue to move from church to church. I can’t seem to find a place where I fit.
