    • You recently put this comment on the end of one of my devotions. Do you feel the lack of integrity and conviction of the spirit at all that you cut and paste this message to many ministers of the gospel as though it were a message from the Lord intended for one? I rebuke you for this. There would be those who are less discerning that would take this as a word from God specifically for them. You should be ashamed for this kind of representation as ministers of the gospel!

      Pastor Tim Burt
