A Divided House: Binding the strong man, Satan bound, demons leaving but 7 more come and take over, I can't figure out what's happening here. [Luke 11]

Denominations: Is the splitting of so many churches a good thing or a bad thing? Does it weaken or strengthen the church? Do you we need to unify again?

Unified by the Holy Spirit: What do you do when someone disagrees but insists they are correct because they have the Holy Spirit (implying you don't)?

Church Building Project Followup: Caller had called before talking about the new building project her church wants to do.
