The Seven Spirits of the Devil in the Church
#1. TS of B: The Spirit of Babylon
“Let us stick together, get to heaven and escape punishment!”
#2. VIP: Very Important Persons
“Whatever you say sir, we will do!”
#3. LPDI: Let Pastor Do It
“And brother, look out if he doesn’t do it right !”
#4. The 4 DDs
Doctor of Divinity: Academic sophistication
Dictatorial Democracy: The Majority rules !
Denominational Decree: No contest !
Division by Default: Just do nothing and it happens !
#5. C & BL: Constitution and Bylaws
“Who needs the leading of the Holy Spirit? We have the C & BL!”
#6. RR of PP: Robert’s Rules of Parliamentary Procedure
Perhaps not evil, but often effective in quenching the Holy Spirit.
#7. T of T: Tyranny of Tradition
“We have always done it that way!”
