My name is Steve Page. I’m just a guy who wishes to serve Jesus with all of my heart, soul and mind.
I was once blind and now I see, meaning I have lived most of my life as a non-believer, seeing the world through a lens that was filtered by my own selfishness and sin. Now that I know the Grace of the Lord and now that our Savior has adopted me into the family of God, I now see things through spiritual eyes.
What I see causes me great concern. I see Christians who are more involved in the world than they are in the body of Christ. They spend more time watching TV, playing video games or listening to secular music than they do in the Word or in fellowship with Christians learning about Christ.
Another area of concern for me are some parts of the Charismatic movement and where they seem to be headed. Prosperity preachers want to convince us to “sow seeds of faith” by giving our money to them. To me this reeks of the indulgences that the Catholic hierarchy sold before the Reformation movement. Other parts of the Charismatic movement would want you to believe that as a Born Again Christian you can be possessed and hassled by demons, for no reason. They may teach that there are curses attached to our names, that Christians are plagued by generational curses, that Christians are haunted by generational demons or they may teach other things that are equal displays of doctrinal darkness and superstition. We must wonder if these teachers even believe in the Redemption of Christians through the Blood of Jesus Christ or if they understand that the Born Again Christ follower is born into the family of the Father.
These issues cause me great concern and cause me to write about them. I welcome your comments. I understand that I do not have all the answers and I appreciate civil and wise discourse.
