Soapbox Moment

soapboxI risk hurting some feelings and opening a door for argument, because this is happening here is South Bend and people I know are friends on Facebook with the person doing this. I hold that door open, but will likely not participate.

I sat on this for a day but now feel compelled to share – a warning perhaps.  So, here is where it started:

A friend of mine, a new believer, was invited to an event.  She sent me the invitation and asked what I thought of it.  Here are some tidbits from the invite:

 

FUN….FUN…..FUN CLASS!!!!!

DON’T MISS OUT ON THIS OPPORTUNITY TO CONNECT WITH YOUR DIVINE GUARDIAN ANGEL!
THIS CLASS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
WHO IS YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL?

Everyone has Guardian Angels who are with you in this lifetime watching over you since you were a small child.

Sometimes Archangels will come in when we most need their strength and guidance during particularly trying times in our lives.

Your Angels want to guide and connect with you, after all, they love and watch over you daily.
When you connect with your Angels, Miracles can and do happen.
Do you want to know what your Angels have to say to you?
IN THIS CLASS I WILL TEACH YOU:

*HOW TO CONNECT WITH YOUR GUARDIAN ANGEL
*RECEIVE A NAME
*ASK YOUR ANGEL FOR HELP WITH STRUGGLES OR ANSWERS YOU ARE SEEKING
*LEARN HOW TO PLAY WITH ANGEL CARDS FOR ANSWERS ON A DAILY BASIS
*LEARN HOW TO RECOGNIZE SIGNS THAT THEY SEND YOU
*LAST BUT NOT LEAST, BE OPEN TO WATCH MIRACLES BEGIN TO HAPPEN IN YOUR LIFE

——————————–

The invite went on to share the dates, times, location and of course the credentials (which included the word “medium”) of the person putting on this 4 week class and doing this seemingly wonderful thing.  They could truly believe that this is their gift.  I don’t want to get snarky here.  I just don’t know if this person realizes that she is being used as a tool by which the enemy is shifting your attention from God to…Angels.  But I say this (this is my side of the argument):

The enemy is subtle.

Why worship something less?  (another created being… )

Do I believe in angels?  Yes.   And…

Reference:  

“Colossians 2:18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you. Such a person also goes into great detail about what they have seen; they are puffed up with idle notions by their unspiritual mind.”

“2 Corinthians 2:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.”

Just saying… when I need “Help with struggles or answers…”  I am going to pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ.

Now, I will step down, pick up my soapbox, and walk away….

p.s.  My friend said that she declined the invitation
