Pastor Dewey: My spirit very disturbed at reading this story, it shows very clearly that the meaning of Christianity means different things to different people. No wonder so many people are confused what being a Christian means. We have to do better. We have to stand strong in love and continue to carry out THE GREAT COMMISSION in love. I also will share with you what God showed me this week very clearly, “My babies know more than what you think”
