my heart breaks for people who have been (and are currently being) subtly deceived by false prophets.
that's Satan's favorite technique, i think.
and it's MADDENING.

"...and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people."
Matthew 24:11

"But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed."
2 Peter 2:1-2

"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves."
Matthew 7:15

how does drama come to the peacemaker--the one person who tries to avoid drama at all costs? simple: avoidance of issues causes more drama.
i love avoidance. but apparently im the only one.

i do not like confrontation or making a big deal of things. i'm content to let issues, squabbles, tensions, etc. work themselves out over time, cause thats usually what it takes--time and prayer. so why must we always talk? some things are better left unsaid.

What is my motivation?

Sometimes I wonder if I need to just step back from my current church involvements and reassess why I'm really there. Is it cause they let me sing? Or do I truly share their passion and goals? We love the same that enough? Does my love for this body of believers outweigh my seemingly-unshakable frustrations?
