Ex-Word of Faith Testimony from Elsie over at Forgiven Sinner’s Blog

We give our freind Danny over at FreedomFromWolves a big Hat-Tip and Thank-You for letting us swipe the last two testimonies from his site.

Wow, its been awhile since I have posted anything. A lot has changed since I started this blog and I want to post a personal update about me, mainly I go to a different church since starting this blog.

For those who don’t know most of my Christian upbringing I was part of the charismatic and word of faith movement.  In high school I even went to the Brownsville Revival in Florida.  Shortly after moving to the Twin Cities I started attending Living Word Christian Center. I became a member and went there for about nine years.  The Lord opened my eyes to much of the false teaching in the Word of Faith by the ministry of Justin Peter’s and my husband and I left that church.  I won’t go into what’s wrong and even heretical but here is a link to some videos of Justin Peter’s. Youtube video. Also check out What is Word of Faith?

When Joel, my husband, and I left we started attending and becoming members at Bethany Missions Church. It was such a relief to not have to hear a twenty-minute offering message every week. For some that might not be a big deal but for me tithing was such a burden and to hear week in and week out that you must tithe in order for God to bless me was heavy burden on me.
