    Looking around the Upper Room website, I saw many popular buzzwords which reflect mystic spiritual formation. A review at Amazon of the book Soul Feast (whose author greatly lauds this spiritual formation) reveals very clearly the contradiction of Biblical truth which is at the heart of this whole issue. https://www.amazon.com/Soul-Feast-Invitation-Christian-Spiritual/product-reviews/0664229476/ref=cm_cr_srp_d_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterByStar=one_star&reviewerType=all_reviews#reviews-filter-bar

    So true, Elizabeth and T. I. Unity without purity (full allegiance to God’s Word, and His alone) is also not the unity which Christ Jesus gives to His people. The Lord taught me this years ago when my family was attending a church which was seriously compromising God’s Word in a crucial area. The pastor’s wife couldn’t seem to comprehend what I shared with her about this! That was scary. Thankfully her husband, the pastor, seemed to get it and backed off from that issue. But my husband and I both saw other issues and eventually felt compelled to leave that congregation. That was more than 15 years ago. It is becoming difficult in many areas to find a church which is faithful to the Lord, including the full teaching of His Word.

    Unity without truth is not unity. Light cannot be united with darkness.
    Is Jan O. more concerned about unity than about truth.
    LT is doing the Lords work.
    LT does this knowing what happened to Jeremiah and to Stephen for telling the truth.

    I read the Upper Room sections and could find no mention of the need to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to reach God. The definition of a saint was wrong. Saints are all those who have accepted Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Prayer beads are used by pagan religions, something we should not need to do. Pagan religions have memorized prayers and are not from the heart.
