And I'm saying many people have looked at that word and many denominations have grown as a result.

Thus.. differing interpretations MUST occur. Do you not agree?

I haven't ever read one of her books. I know little to nothing about her.

I'm sorry you feel so alone when crucified.

I have the book, but never read it....

But I really like Joyce Meyers, I believe because of her past, God has helped a lot of people come out of bondage of what Satan tries to lead some astray of their position as a child of God.

Blessings to you....WC!!

I had this representation presented to me at a bible study I attended recently on this very topic and found it very interesting. (It's good to see discussion about this topic.)
In the old testament it speaks of the outer court, the inner court and the Holy of Holies. Our bodies are the temple of God housing the Holy spirit .
THe outer court is our Flesh, the inner court our Soul (mind, will and emotions) and the Holy of Holies the Holy spirit. (he cannot attack the Holy Spirit)
Where the devil can attack is our inner court, Soul . Satan can infuse thoughts into our minds, impose feelings into our emotions and invokes plans for actions.
When we become aware of the enemies tacticts (LIES) and how he subtly will try to infuse these into our walk, we have the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of truth abideth in me and teaches me all things and guides me into all truths) to deliver us from this lie. This part I love because it shows the power of Gods word, and really how easy it is to defeat the enemy. Just receive the truth (Gods word-JESUS~freedom) and reject the lie (satan~bondage). "I am the Body of Christ and satan hath no power over me. For I overcome evil with Good."1 cor. 12:27, Romans 12:21. God Bless!
