Revelation 3:15 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot! 16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth!
Remember the bakery lawsuits. They are coming to the churches. We Pray you will Stand in JESUS CHRIST!
