Lectio Divina: What it is, What it is Not, and Why It is a Dangerous Practice

Lectio Divina – There’s a lot of talk about it today; umpteen books are published and more are on the way about lectio divina; and an increasing number of evangelical/Protestant figures are writing about it, endorsing it, and teaching it.

The Spirit World Influences Every Human Being

Every human being is influenced by spirits from a different world. Even those people who don’t believe in spiritual beings are nevertheless under their control.
