Over the years, I have often wondered why these non-denominational churches that are huge, (Mega churches) as they are known, are located in some of the most God forbidden locations in our major cities and satan’s attacks upon righteousness and moral government prevails what appears victory for evil. Evil is always growing and righteousness no longer present. Russ, you finally revealed why nothing seems to happen to change the course of depravity in our so called churches, communities, cities and most important…U.S.Government. The church is ineffective. A building is powerless. The Ekklesia is powerful and this is why, (us) the Ekklesia have the Authority.”Been given the Keys to go on the OFFENSIVE THROUGH SPIRITUAL WARFARE. Praise God. Thanks for this lesson. I’m excited to step out this week with the homework assignment and looking forward to next weeks lesson. Blessings, Wayne S.

Why am I angry that there is so much evil what causes this? I’m angry that these people are calling all that is wicked good and shaming those who opose it and believe in righteousness.
First, I would like to say thank you brother Russ for your teaching on this subject of Clergy \ Laity – the worldly system currently governing the Church.
Because I was not raised in the church, I am finding that I have had less bad doctrine to unlearn although I was still affected by this system. Case and point, I have been ordained by the church three times since my new birth in 1984. This is not because I was seeking such but because of my unorthodox approach of doing what I plainly saw in the Bible and the church stepped in to recognize my gift and classify my calling.
Because I was given a KJV of the Bible when I was first saved, I have used that version along with the Strongs concordance for most of my walk with the Lord along with other translations over the years when studying. One of the things I learned about the King James version was the meaning of italicized words. In the King James version, the italicized words are not in the original transcripts and that the italicized words were added by transcribers to help us understand what the transcribers believed God meant to say. This helped me in many ways by understanding that these words were added. Knowing this, I was able to see what the translators saw before their translations.
However, what I have discovered from this study is that none of the words from the scriptures we have studied in lesson 11 Boot Camp are italicized. To me, this makes the King James Version of the Bible particularly deceitful. The truth has been intentional hidden because of the bias of men. For this I say thank you for this study.
While I am appalled by my findings, In sharing this truth with others in the body of Christ I find much apathy. It seems that religion has become comforting for some and to question this matter is to upset their perceived understanding of what has been their truth for so long. I have also found this truth to be especially threating to current leaders in the church who have been capture by the system of men. Much prayer is needed for those who have embraced the lie of Clergy and Laity. While I have yet to have a breakthrough in sharing this with others, I have been able to plant the seeds. Perhaps this is our Kingdom assignment 1 Corinthians 3: 6-9.
