Isn’t it funny how the best-selling book in the world can elicit strange looks if one is caught actually reading it? 🙂

I was taking an EFM course…Education for Ministry, … a group of 6 to 10 people, and
it was amazing the people who “disapproved” in one way or another. Some of the assignments were to read parts of the Bible for certain exercises, and everyone was
busy with work and families. One day, one of the people in my group remarked at the disapproving looks … or other interesting expressions…she got carrying her Bible and reading the assignments at any opportunity, including in public.
We talked about the reactions we got from others. I had several very hostile people…co-workers that would even try to find ways to keep me from attending the classes (calling in so I had to work for them for example)
There would be snide remarks or “knowing looks” when I’d ask someone their thoughts on a question. It was an eye opener for sure.

Wow. Guess we know who’s behind that 🙂

I’d added a bit more to my answer: There would be snide remarks or “knowing looks” when I’d ask someone their thoughts on a question. It was an eye opener for sure.
It caused quite a dynamics to actually see the presence behind the actions at work. One person, of three, was quite proud that she was able to ruin the careers of people that she deemed unfit to work (they were too religious, too good, knowing who some of her victims were).
It was amazing. Thanks for your comment.

Rather sad, I think.

it is rather sad, because most people don’t know what hit them when they come across a dark force imbedded in someone. It is very very sad.
