All any of us can do is read with an open heart and ask the Lord for the truth. This brother, however, has judged me based upon his present knowledge. You may recall that we discussed on Wednesday evening how unfortunate for the Body of Christ this practice is.
It is fruitless and ungodly to argue doctrine, or respond to responses based upon the intellect of man. The only appropriate response to this brother is correction or silence. I have no authority over this brother and, therefore, my response is silence. Any other response from me would be a manifestation of pride, the destroyer of the anointing and, in particular, the destroyer of the MALE ANOINTING, which I covet more than the prideful, carnal satisfaction of “being right.” My satisfaction comes from the Lord and, in particular, from the glorious Word He shares with me.
I am sent only to the brethren who can recognize the Spirit of Christ upon me, and who look to the Lord, not other teachers, for the second witness to what I teach.
God bless you,
Sincerely in Christ,
Sheila R. Vitale,
