In a story at Fox News called Doctors Can’t Remove Needles Stuck Near Boy’s Heart we find religion harming people again.
The article says
RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — The stepfather of a 2-year-old boy found with 42 needles in his body has confessed to jabbing them into the toddler as part of a religious ritual, Brazilian police said Thursday.
The boy’s father, Gessivaldo Alves, told the newspaper A Tarde that he believed his son could have been a victim of a black magic ritual. Alves reportedly said he visited the home where the boy was living and found unspecified items that could be used for black magic.
That is why you make the Bible your only rule of faith and practice. Religion kills. There is no preacher, man of God, apostle, prophet or any other alive today that give us a new word from the Lord.
We believe the Bible. We check everything anyone says by what the Word of God says. Do not fall into the trap of following preachers. Always have your Bible out. Check out the reference. Make sure that is what the Bible is saying.
Many people today in Christianity are being duped because of their ignorance of the Scriptures. Be careful to be a student of the Bible.
Be wary of anyone that tells you that God is speaking to them and telling you something to do. Beware of anyone that goes into some sort of trance and gets a message from God. We have His finished, complete Word. We need no further revelation.
