    Man will be lovers of pleasure than the lovers of God and love money.We are more into entertainment than worshippers, the dance moves and attireis disgusting!!!! The materialism has taken over, the word of God has no effect in the church today. Money has became a god in the church, money demanded by force. The poor and the needy are rejected and dispised, The book of Mica 3 is clear on this matte

    V. 6 - We all have friends like this - men like this also. We can witness to them but only for a short time because they don't want to hear it; they have their own way; we can PRAY for them tho' and that is more powerful in the long run; just our lives of holiness will be a witness to them. But we have to be CONSISTENT because they are watching us.
