  1. It’s good that you said something about the YouTube channel. If a person goes to YouTube and searches for unholycharade, and then watches the sermons on YouTube, there is automatic closed captioning provided for the videos.

    In case anyone else needs closed captions. The video is bigger, too.

    1. You’re welcome. I took the audio off because it cant be there when the video is loading. But both video and audio ought to be up by this evening. Learning curve.

  3. Morning
    Thank you for this service.
    Such a loving way to begin my day and such power to those abused by the church.

    I have two questions.
    What does it mean to be “poor in spirit” and what is “meekness”.

    Being told I was a proud haughty woman for my strength. These have been twisted within my heart.

    I would appreciate the truth.
    And thank you again for the time you give to this.

    1. HopeGlenn- poor in spirit means to humbly acknowledge our need for Christ, confessing our sin and need of a Savior. Spiritual poverty if you will, in need of the riches of Christ. Meekness is not being a doormat but rather another attribute of Christ. It is strength in doing Gods will, not being stubborn and going our own way.

      Great questions! Thankyou.

      Oh and don’t let wicked abusers try to use these terms against you. They love to pervert Scripture.
