Truth or Not

Do they teach truth or are they peddling some kind of watered down gospel (Gal.1:6-9)? That is what I want to know.

1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.....

6 We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.(1John 4:1-6)

11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.(Acts 17:11)

As a reformed ex-con, I applaud the introduction of a group of people in the Hunt Co. system. Frankly, if it wasn't for the people who come into the jails and prisons to tell me about the Love of Christ, I would have died in prison.

I was a very bad boy, and it was the saving Grace of God that got me out. 17 years later, I am free of the physical bonds (the memories and pains to the victims of what I did will always be there) but my spirit is free and I have been forgiven by my Saviour and the victims. Thank God for people who take thier own time and spend it with those who still can be saved from a life in prison, both physical and spiritual.

So glad to hear you say that - that is exactly why they go into the prisons, and yes, they are teaching Truth... not a watered-down anything. These ladies are servants, quite beautiful, and have a heart to let incarcerated women know that God can set them free, even if they remain behind bars for a while. It's freedom of the spirit, not from the bars.

I can not believe the people that are here mocking some that are trying to do good. There are people in prison that need to hear the word of God. If walking in a prison to serve God is so far beneath you, then just don't mock those that are doing his work.

There is nothing Republican about this. If a group wants to donate time in a meaningful effort, then there is not cost to you. And even if the prisoners are not Christian and don't want to be Christian....most crave the outside world and someone new to talk to. I doubt they mind the visits.

I feel sorry for you people that will make fun of Christianity. There will be a day when you will wish you hadn't.

I don't believe in cults, but I have read this article and they seem to be a legitimate Christian group, at least from what the article says.

Thank God for people like this that will go into a prison to reach those that really need God. Yes, God walks with the prisoners and all that believe no matter where they may be.

There are people just as close to God in prison as they are in the churches that you sit in on Sundays.

I cannot believe that people are actually bashing this ministry. Before anyone bashes someone helping in any way, they should ask what they are doing themselves to help.
