Istoria Ministries Blog: Bill Gothard: His Umbrella of Protection Teaching Provides an Umbrage for Perverted Behavior

Istoria Ministries Blog: Bill Gothard: His Umbrella of Protection Teaching Provides an Umbrage for Perverted Behavior

"...the Bible teaches Christ alone has spiritual authority over His people, and every believer in His kingdom is a priest unto God. Nobody else has "spiritual authority" over anybody else. Christ, in shepherding His people, dispenses spiritual gifts to enable us to serve one another, never to rule over one another."

  1. LL - I used to believe in the concept of spiritual "coverings." My current conviction is that we perpetuate spiritual infancy when we direct the affections of any believer to the example of a man more than the person of Christ.

    1. I used to believe in it, too, James. But after seeing it used as a tool of abuse and control too many times, I finally started questioning - and it just didn't stand up to scrutiny.
