Every single one of us… the devil inside 🎼
It’s a line from an 80s INX song

And it’s also the doctrine and theology I grew up learning in my Family Faith. 
Speaking of my childhood religion… I was tickled pink when I discovered I could use one of our summer vacation Bible School camp songs on my IG post earlier this week!!! 
Completely blown away that such a resource would be available to me on mainstream social media:

You see, I grew up in a household practicing a rare set of religious principles indeed.

We called them “First Principles.” And in order to be fully submerged in baptism [a believed requirement for salvation] one had to pass the “board examination” of said principles first.

This morning as I was recording Day 22 of Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge for the Grateful Gwen YouTube Channel, I started to explain the theology I believed growing up. 


Specifically, I attempted to address this doctrine regarding the devil inside versus a supernatural Satan, which also includes hell being translated form the original Greek Sheol meaning the grave.

Then I deleted all of that explaination; and instead was convicted to encourage YOU to read the Bible prayerfully for yourself. 

 Truly LISTEN to whatever The Holy Spirit speaks to your soul to form your own personal theology.

Don’t take my word for it… Or any other imperfect human being for that matter. 

Trust God. 

As the IG link above reminds us in 
Jeremiah 29:13 —
Seek God with ALL of your HEART ❤️ and you will find Him! 
Matthew 6:33
Seek FIRST the Kingdom of God… 🎵
