Authoritative Wounding by Robert Ricciardelli

People have been wounded deeply even in organizations that are meant to be a safe and restorative place. People in authority can wound others that look up to them by their words, attitudes, and demands. Because spiritual life is so significant in every seeker, the wounds can especially be damaging. Leaders must understand the damages caused by responding to other's, when done outside of God's love and compassion.

  1. The Kingdom of GOD is the Catholic Church!

    Why did Jesus Christ become Incarnate in the first place? Was it to leave us with a book, or to establish a Church? Well, in this verse He told us one of the reasons why:

    "But He said to them, "To the other towns also I must PROCLAIM THE KINGDOM OF GOD, FOR THIS IS WHY I HAVE BEEN SENT"." (Luke 4:43)

    "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." (Luke 19:10)

    And how are we, who are the lost ones, to be saved? It is through the Church which He founded.

    "Therefore, if you harken to My voice and keep My covenant, you shall be My special possession, dearer to Me than all other people, though all the earth is mine. YOU SHALL BECOME A KINGDOM OF PRIESTS, A HOLY NATION." (Exodus 19:5-6)

    "You, however, are a chosen race, A ROYAL PRIESTHOOD, A HOLY NATION, A PURCHASED PEOPLE; that you may proclaim the perfections of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light." (1Peter 2:9)

    The Kingdom of GOD will last forever:

    "And when your days shall be fulfilled and you shall sleep with your fathers, I will raise up your seed after you, which shall proceed out of your bowels, and I WILL ESTABLISH HIS KINGDOM. HE SHALL BUILD A HOUSE TO MY NAME, AND I WILL ESTABLISH THE THRONE OF HIS KINGDOM FOREVER...AND YOUR HOUSE SHALL BE FAITHFUL, AND YOUR KINGDOM FOREVER BEFORE YOUR FACE AND YOUR THRONE SHALL BE FIRM FOREVER." (2Samuel 7:13, 16)

  2. Nice job Michael! Disobedient, intellectually dishonest spiritual narcissists rationalizing their immense ego and occupational trade in the name of God. They're a dime a dozen nowadays. The proof is in the endless Christian disunity going on. Yeah, that's what Jesus meant LOL!!
