what are we selling?

Isn't it sad that we have turned His house ( a house of prayer) into a den of robbers. The church should spend less time doing business as the world does business and more time in prayer before The Father. That we may hear His voice and not every opinion out there.

Do we really care about the people we are lying to? If we love as Christ does, we will speak the truth about the repentence of the believer.
